Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Christmas Tag!

Hey there! When I started making Christmas cards with the Painted Harvest stamp set, the ideas just kept on rollin'!

 Embossing directly on the card front stretches and distorts the paper and makes it sort of floppy, so I cut another piece of the same Old Olive  4" x 5 1/4" to emboss with the Holly Textured Impressions Folder, adhering with a dimensional in each corner. I stamped the bloom twice with just the inside layer of the Painted Harvest sunflower with Real Red, then filled in the center with Crushed Curry. I stamped the solid leaves with stamped-off Old Olive and the detailed leaves with full-strength. I stamped the "Merry Christmas!" from the limited-time Hostess set, Merry Patterns, with black ink. After cutting with a Layering Circle Framelit, I layered it on a Stitched Shapes Framelit Circle cut from Gold Foil. It really gives it a gold-rimmed tag look!

 I wanted to continue the gold on the inside so I cut a 4" x 5 1/4" layer. For future cards I will be cutting my Stitched Shapes circle "tag" from the center of this layer to conserve my Gold Foil Sheets. This layer will be covered with the white stamped layer anyway!

 Here's my final layer for the inside. I used a Watercolor Christmas sentiment with more stamped blooms. I love to coordinate my envelope by stamping some of the same images for a fun teaser when the card arrives!

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Gilded Faux Silk!

Hey there! Today's card is also done with the Faux Silk technique, but I added the Gilding technique to step it up!

Stampin_up_gilded_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

Both natural and white coffee filters work great for this technique. I stamped the Painted Harvest bloom all over a natural one for today's card. I used Real Red ink, but when stamped on the natural filter it looks more like Cherry Cobbler. After stamping I crumpled into a ball, kind of tightly, then opened back up loosely. I didn't smooth out all of the wrinkles and creases before gluing to my 4" x 5 1/4" Very Vanilla layer. After folding and adhering the edges to the back side of the layer with liquid glue I adhered to an Early Espresso 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" layer on the Real Red card base.

After the layer was attached to the card base I gently pressed my Versamark pad on the creases and wrinkles, sprinkled gold embossing powder over the entire card front, and tapped off the excess back into my embossing powder container. I also used a soft brush to selectively flick away excess powder where ti was sticking too much to the still-damp ink. I then used my heat tool to emboss the powder and achieve the "gilded" look.

I stamped a greeting from Merry Mistletoe with Old Olive ink on a 1" strip of Very Vanilla, snipping one end with my Paper Snips into banner points. I scraped the edges of the banner on the Versamark pad, dipped the edges in the Gold embossing powder, and heated with the Heat Tool to get a hint of gold edge. After wrapping Gold Metallic Thread a few times I tied a knot around the threads. I finished it off with a stamped holly from Carols of Christmas and three pearls I colored with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Blend Marker.

Stampin' Up! Painted Harvest Meets Faux Silk!

Hey there! I had a chance to play late last week, and the card I'm sharing today was one of the ones I created with the Faux Silk technique. I used Painted Harvest with sentiments from Merry Mistletoe to create this bright and cheery card:

Stampin_up_painted_harvest_carolpaynestamps1

For this one I stamped the Painted Harvest bloom with Real Red ink on a white coffee filter (yes, I have both white and natural in my coffee cabinet, although I'm trying to use the natural ones to reduce our bleach exposure in our coffee) I stamped the centers with Crushed Curry and the leaves with Old Olive. In true "faux silk" fashion, I then crumpled the filter into a ball before opening back up and adhering to a Whisper White layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. I trimmed the filter to about an inch on all sides, then turned the edges to the backside, mitered the corners, and then adhered with more glue.

The wrinkles and creases did not show up in my photos, but the effect is stunning!

I used Gold Foil for to mat behind the layers to coordinate with the gold-embossed greeting from Merry Mistletoe. I stamped holly leaves from Carols of Christmas with Old Olive on  Old Olive card stock, cut with a Card Front Layers Thinlet, and then adhered with glue dots. I added the smallest of the Gold Faceted Gems for more sparkle.

Inside I gold-embossed another Merry Mistletoe sentiment.

Stampin' Up! Count My Blessings with Fun Foam!

Hey there! I've been re-visiting another oldie-but-goodie-technique, Heat Stamping on Fun Foam!

Stampin_up_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps5

How do you heat stamp? What is Fun Foam?

First, Fun Foam is a spongy sheet 1/8" - 1/4" thick found at craft stores. I bought a beige 12" x 18" sheet for 89 cents! I can cut a bunch of squares, rectangles, and strips!

To heat stamp on fun foam: Heat with your Heat Tool until the foam gets a little wet-looking and starts to curl. This doesn't take very long! As soon as the foam is heated, press an inked red-rubber stamp into the foam. Hold in place for a few seconds. Remove and voila! You have heat stamped the Fun Foam!

NOTE: Red-rubber stamps work best because they are more deeply-etched than photopolymer.

For my card I started with an Early Espresso card base,  then added a Crumb Cake layer embossed with the Pinewood Plank Dynamic Folder inked with Crumb Cake.  I added strips of Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper, than the Fun Foam square  I had cut with a Stitched Shapes Framelit, heated with the Heat Tool and stamped with a Count My Blessings image inked with Early Espresso. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso  before adhering to the card with a Stampin' Dimensionals in each corner.

Stampin_up_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps2

I stamped a Butterfly Basics greeting and finished with a single Gold Faceted Gem.

Stampin_up_count_my_blessings_carolpaynestamps3

I stamped inside with a Count My Blessings sentiment, stamped-off acorns, and Early Espresso sponging. I covered the Very Vanilla envelope flap with the fabulous acorn pattern from the Painted Harvest Designer Series Paper!
