Give your embossed cardstock some heat and shine!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which not only features the Country Home stamp set, but one of the new embossing folders from the Holiday Catalog, Stylish Scroll! I just love this embossing folder and I will be using it for my Halloween cards, but I thought today I would not only combine it with a stamp set you may already have and give the embossed cardstock a different look with heat embossing!

The base layer is Highland Heather cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Stylish Scroll EF. I just “dragged” my Versamark pad across the embossed cardstock, sprinkled Silver Emboss Powder, and set with my heat tool:

You will also need this design from the 2019-2021 In Colors 6” x 6” DSP in Purple Posy cut at 2” x 5 ¼” (this was left over from another card I made, ready to use!), the sentiment is stamped in Gray Granite ink on a ½” scrap of Whisper White (you know those leftover strips when you cut your WWCS down to 4” x 5 ¼”), used the Banner Triple Punch on the end, stamp the jug in Memento ink, color along the edge and bottom with Light Smoky Slate, the next layer in with Dark Gray Granite, and the middle the Light Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends, I used Light Purple Posy just a little in the middle, and then blended with the Color Lifter, the top piece is stamped in Memento ink and colored in with Dark Gray Granite, Light Granny Apple, Dark Highland Heather and Dark Purple Posy Stampin’ Blends, fussy cutting both pieces:

The DSP is adhered to the embossed base layer, the top flower piece is adhered to the jug, the sentiment is adhered behind the jug, and this completed piece is adhered to the DSP with dimensionals:

This completed layer is adhered to a Gray Granite cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside is a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the flowers from the card front are stamped twice along the bottom in Memento ink and colored in with the same Stampin’ Blends:

Super cute card!! You can easily make this more of a “fall theme” by just changing the colors. What do you think of the new embossing folder?? This really is versatile, I see it being used for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! And them some!! Don’t forget the new Holiday Catalog goes live on September 4, 2019!!

The focus is all on you!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and quick card featuring the Capture the Good stamp set! I recently purchase some of the new Shimmer Black Emboss Powder and thought it would be fun to give the camera from this stamp set a little sparkle! I wasn’t sure what to expect from the new embossing powder, but I really like how the shimmer is very subtle and you can really see it from an angle, which is nice and unlike glitter, if you were thinking that this embossing powder may be similar to.

The base layer is Seaside Spray cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the next layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

You will also need a 1 ½” x 3 ¾” piece of Seaside Spray DSP from the 2019-2021 In Colors 6” x 6” DSP, stamp the camera in Versamark on Basic Gray cardstock, heat emboss with the Shimmer Black Emboss Powder, and fussy cut out:

I stamped the sentiment on the Whisper White cardstock in Basic Gray ink (stamping off once first) and then adhere to the Seaside Spray cardstock:

The sentiment is stamped on the DSP in Basic Gray ink several times, using my Stamparatus, to make sure the image is dark enough on the DSP, and then adhere the DSP onto the cardstock:

The base layer is adhered to a Basic Gray cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”, the camera is adhered with dimensionals, and I added one of the large Seaside Spray Faceted Dot to the middle of the camera lens:

The inside sentiment is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the accent stamp is stamped in Seaside Spray ink and the sentiment is stamped in Basic Gray ink:

Very quick and easy card, right?? Adding simple cardstock layers and creating your own “DSP” with a stamp is a quick and easy way to give your card that little extra! Add some heat embossing and some embellishments and you have a super cute card that will sure to brighten someone’s day!!

Sending you well wishes

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a sweet card to send when someone you know needs a little pick-me-up! This card has lots of textures and layers, but is so very easy to make! If you haven’t checked out the Noble Peacock Foil Sheets and Rhinestones, you should! The colors for both of these are just stunning and coordinate beautifully!

To start, your base layer is Pretty Peacock cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and embossed with the Subtle 3D Emboss Folder:

I used this design from the 2019-2021 In Colors 6” x 6” DSP, first cut the bottom piece at ¾” x 6” and then cut at 2” so you will have one piece 4” x 5 ¼” and another piece at 2” x 5 ¼”. For this card you will need the ¾” x 6” and 2” x 5 ¼”:

You will layer the DSP on a piece of Pool Party cardstock, cut at 2 ¼” x 5 ¼” and adhere to the embossed cardstock base layer:

Cut another piece of Pool Party cardstock at 3 ¼” x 3 ¼” and a piece of Pretty Peacock foil sheet at 2 ¾” x 2 ¾”. Heat emboss the dandelion image on the foil sheet in White Embossing Powder, keeping the heat on low or being very careful not to heat too much as the foil will start to melt. On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, I stamped the dandelion seeds in Pool Party ink, ink the sentiment first in Versamark ink and then Pretty Peacock ink, stamp on the cardstock, and heat emboss using Clear Embossing Powder, cutting out with the 5thfrom the larges scalloped Layering Circle Die:

The embossed foil sheet is layered on top of the Pool Party cardstock and adhered to the base layer. To adhere the sentiment, apply adhesive to the top half (to adhere to the foil) and use a couple of dimensionals on the bottom half to adhere to the embossed base layer:

This completed piece is adhered to a Gray Granite cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”. I added a rhinestone in Pretty Peacock to the middle of each dandelion:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, adhere the ¾” strip of DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess, stamp the dandelion seeds in Pool Party ink, and the sentiment from Itty Bitty Greetings in Pretty Peacock ink:

Don’t you just love pairing Pool Party with Pretty Peacock? The layout of this card is very easy to replicate with any stamp set, DSP, and color combo!

Quick and easy with Itty Bitty Birthdays

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy card to make with Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set! This fun and cute stamp set has 16 different sentiments, some can be used outside of a birthday card. I wanted to share with you a fun and easy card design featuring this stamp set and you can easily change the DSP to whatever kind you want to use!

I chose the Purple Posy gingham design from the 2019-2021 6” x 6” In Color DSP. I first cut a ¾” x 6” strip off one side, turned the paper, and then cut at 4”. This will give you three pieces, one at ¾” x 6”, one at 4” x 5 ¼”, and one at 2” x 5 ¼”, the 4” x 5 ¼” will be the base layer for this card:

You will cut a piece of Purple Posy cardstock at 2” x 5 ¼” and then a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 1 7/8” x 5” to layer on top of the Purple Posy cardstock:

I chose 5 sentiments and used my Stamparatus to line them up on the Whisper White cardstock, stamping them in Versamark Ink and heat embossing in Silver Emboss Powder. This piece is then adhered to the Purple Posy cardstock layer:

I used some Silver Metallic Edge Ribbon to tie a bow around the DSP (or cut enough ribbon to adhere across the front, tie some ribbon into a bow separately, and then adhere the bow with a glue dot), adhere the DSP to a Smoky Slate cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11” and scored at 5 ½”, and then adhere the sentiment piece with dimensionals:

The inside is on Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed in silver, the ¾” strip of DSP is adhered across the bottom, trimming off the excess:

Quick and easy card, right?? If you don’t like to heat emboss, you can easily use a coordinating ink! This card is a great way to make a super cute card and use up your DSP!!

New Catalog Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s New Catalog Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller, I am located in Norfolk, Virginia, and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop or have hopped over from another site, thank you for letting me share my creation with you today. Let’s get started!

I first have to say that this card was really a labor of love for me because as much as I love the Butterfly Wishes stamp set, I was bound and determined to figure out another way to add some color to the stamped images. After experimenting on Whisper White and Very Vanilla cardstock with Early Espresso ink, I added color with Stampin’ Blends and was surprised at the results, the Early Espresso ink did not bleed! I even stamped off once before coloring with the Stampin’ Blends and had the same results. 

To start, I first used the largest Stitched Nested Labels to cut out of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the large butterfly in Early Espresso ink, figured out where I wanted the branch placement, and then stamped that in Early Espresso ink (the branch is a little dark, you can stamp off once if you want it lighter):

I colored in the butterfly and flowers with Light Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends, the leaves with Dark Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends, and made some stamen lines with the Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends:

The base layer is Blackberry Bliss cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Brick & Mortar 3D Folder, you will use the debossed side:

Additionally for the card front, you will use this design from the 2019-2021 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 3” x 5 ¼”, Rose Metallic Thread, and stamp the butterfly with Early Espresso ink on Whisper White cardstock, color with the Light and Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends, and punch out with the Butterfly Duet Punch:

I wrapped the Rose Metallic Thread around the middle of the DSP several times, adhering the ends to the back of the DSP:

The Stitched Nested Label piece is adhered to the middle of the DSP and then this is adhered to the embossed base layer (debossed side):

This is then adhered to a Blackberry Bliss cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. I curled the butterfly wings with my bone folder, adhered it with a mini dimensional, and added three of the rectangle shaped Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the sentiment is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink, and the butterfly is stamped in Early Espresso ink, colored with the Light and Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blends:


Fun and easy card to make! Again, these are my results that I’m sharing with you, you can always stamp off once before coloring and I even tried Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody, and Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. While not all of my “idea’s” work out, I really do like the results of this!

Sweet and simple card with the Daisy Lane Bundle

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a sweet and simple card made with the Daisy Lane Bundle! I’ve been having fun creating cards with the larger daisy stamp and the daisy punch, but now that I have the medium daisy punch, it is time to make some more daisies!! When I first started, I really wanted to use a piece of the 2019-2021 In Color 6” x 6” DSP in Pretty Peacock, so I chose to use Pineapple Punch for the daisies to really make them pop! 

You will start with this design in Pretty Peacock from the 6” x 6” DSP, I cut 2” off one end for one piece 2” x 6” and one piece 4” x 6”, and then trimmed ¾” off the 4” x 6” piece. This will give you three pieces: 2” x 6”, 4” x 5 ¼”, and ¾” x 4”, in which the 4” x 5 ¼” will be your base layer for this card:

For the daisies, I stamped the medium daisy six times in Pineapple Punch ink on Whisper White cardstock and punched out with the medium daisy punch:

You will layer three daisies together with liquid glue, which helps you move and position the daisy layer. The first two daisies are slightly off and then the third daisy fills in:

Additionally for the card front, on Whisper White cardstock stamp the stems in Granny Apple Green ink and cut out with the third largest Stitched Nested Labels, use the Detailed Ribbon Border Punch on two pieces of Silver Foil that are 4” long, and then trim the DSP to 2” x 4”:

I used some snail on the back of the DSP to adhere the silver punched pieces along the edge:

That piece is adhered to the DSP base layer and then the cardstock with the stamped stems is adhered with dimensionals:

I used my bone folder to “curl” the ends of the petals, liquid glue to adhere the daisies to the stems, and then placed a medium Clear Faceted Gem in the middle of each. This completed piece is then adhered to a Pretty Peacock cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and the remaining ¾” x 4” strip of DSP is adhered along the bottom:

Fun and easy to make, right?? Did you notice that I used almost a whole sheet of 6” x 6” DSP to make this card? I thought both sides complement each other and just need a little border! This left me with one piece that is 2” x 2”, which can easily be used to layer on another card! I intentionally left any sentiments off of this card, this is a great card to have on hand for any occasion.

Let’s Celebrate with Cake!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which feature’s the new stamp set, Celebrate with Cake! If this stamp set doesn’t quite look familiar, that’s because you cannot find it in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog. Wait, what?? That’s right, you can only find this stamp set in the online store as part of the Experience Creativity Projects. If you are new to stamping, this is a great way to start small and not feel so overwhelmed with trying to figure out where to begin! Celebrate with Cake is a super cute stamp set and so easy to create with!

To begin, cut a piece of Merry Merlot cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, two of the corners are punched with the Detailed Trio Punch, and then is embossed with the Subtle DTIEF (this folder is from the previous catalog and not the new 3D folder):

The next layer is from the 2019-2021 In Color 6” x 6” DSP in Rococo Rose, first cut 1 ½” off one side, turn, and then cut in half at 3”. This will give you two pieces at 3” x 4 ½” and then cut the strip in half, giving you two pieces at ¾” x 6”:

For the card front you will need one piece of the DSP, on Shimmery White cardstock, stamp the cake in Merry Merlot ink, the candle in Sahara Sand and Daffodil Delight inks, cut out with the fourth largest Stitched Nested Labels, stamp the sentiment in Rococo Rose ink on Shimmery White cardstock, punch out with the 1 1/8” Scallop Circle Punch, use the 1 3/8” Scallop Circle Punch on Silver Foil Sheet to layer under the sentiment, and enough Rose Metallic Thread for under the stamped cake piece:

Adhere the DSP to the embossed cardstock at an angle, adhere the metallic thread to the back of the shimmery cardstock, and then adhere this to the DSP with dimensionals:

The sentiment is layered on the silver foil sheet, adhered with dimensionals, and the base layer is adhered to a Sahara Sand cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”. I wanted to give this card a little bling, so I used three of the largest Petal Pink Rhinestone Gems:

The inside is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, the balloons are stamped in Sahara Sand ink, the party hat is stamped in Merry Merlot ink, the sentiment is stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Merry Merlot ink, fussy cut out and adhered with dimensionals, and the ¾” x 6” piece of DSP is adhered along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

Don’t you just love this color combo of Rococo Rose, Merry Merlot, and Sahara Sand?? A great way to “play with” the new 2019-2021 In Colors is with the 6” x 6” DSP and have fun creating different color combinations. You can even just keep it simple and pair the DSP with the same color cardstock.
