So grateful!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a bright and shimmery Thanksgiving card! I recently shared a card that I used the Celestial Copper Metallic Ink on the Gathered Leaves Dies when embossing/cutting the leaves and I wanted to make another card, but this time with the Golden Glitz Metallic Ink and the Nature’s Roots Dies. What better way to make a stunning card than with some foil and shimmery ink? 

The base layer is this design from the Noble Peacock Specialty DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼” (horizontal cut):

For the card front you will need:

1. 5 ¼” piece of Burlap Ribbon.

2. On Very Vanilla cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Golden Glitz Metallic Ink and cut out with the second largest square from the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

3. On Old Olive cardstock, stamped the branch stamp in Mossy Meadow ink two times, cut out with the coordinating die, and then cut out two more pieces from the Gold Foil Sheets.

4. Use the small leaf embossing and cutting dies to cut two leaves from the Gold Foil Sheets. Tip-if you did not know, the embossing and cutting dies layer together so you cut and emboss at the same time.

5. Use the large leaf embossing and cutting dies to cut out one each of Terracotta Tile and Merry Merlot cardstocks. Before cutting/embossing, ink up the embossing leaf in Golden Glitz Metallic Ink, there will be enough ink for both leaves. Tip-To keep the embossing die and cutting die in place, use a post it note or a small piece of masking/painters tape over both dies when placing on top of the cardstock:

To assemble the leaves and branches, use glue dots to layer the branches and then to adhere the branches to the cardstock leaves:

Use Tear & Tape to adhere the Burlap Ribbon to the DSP, adhere the Stitched Shapes square in the middle with dimensionals, and then use glue dots to adhere the leaves around the sentiment:

This completed piece is adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside sentiment, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink, stamp the large leaf in Terracotta Tile and Merry Merlot inks, and stamp the small leaf twice in Golden Glitz Metallic Ink:

This is another beautiful Thanksgiving card made with products from the Annual Catalog, aside from the metallic ink! I just love the added detail to the leaves with the metallic ink and clean-up is a snap, just rinse the die with water in the sink and dry thoroughly.

Glitzy Birthday Card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and fun birthday card with lots of glitz! In this year’s Holiday Catalog, Stampin’ Up! introduced metallic ink pads, Golden Glitz, Silvery Shimmer, and Celestial Copper, and I was ecstatic!  This now means that you don’t have to heat emboss gold, copper, or silver to your projects! Don’t get me wrong, I love heat embossing, but let’s face it, it can be, well, messy….if you’ve ever dumped a container out on your desk or floor, you know what I mean! Who wouldn’t love to receive a birthday card that’s gold and glitzy??

You will start with a base layer of Rococo Rose cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, embossed with the Tin Tile 3D Folder, and I lightly “dragged” the Golden Glitz Metallic ink across the raised side of the embossed cardstock. TIP-save time by using your heat tool to dry the ink:

For the card front:

1. On Crushed Curry cardstock, stamp the medium daisy stamp with Golden Glitz Metallic in three times and punch out with the coordinating punch.

2. Stamp the sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays on Very Vanilla cardstock in Rococo Rose ink and cut out with the third smallest Stitched Nested Labels die.

3. Use the fourth smallest Stitched Nested Labels die to cut out a layer piece for the sentiment from Early Espresso cardstock:

Adhere the stitched labels layers together and adhere to the card front. Use your bone folder to curl the edges of the daisy pieces, use liquid glue to adhere the layers together, slightly staggering, use three of the smallest Gold Glitter Enamel Dots for the center, and use a dimensional to adhere to the base layer, next to the sentiment piece:

This completed piece is adhered to a Early Espresso cardstock card base, cut at 4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside sentiment, cut a 4” x 5 ¼” piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, the sentiment is stamped in Rococo Rose ink and the daffodils are stamped along the bottom in Golden Glitz Metallic ink:

Isn’t this a fun and glitzy card?? I really love how the gold metallic ink coordinates with these colors! If you are into heat embossing, then I highly suggest these metallic ink pads, just don’t forget that they take a little bit to dry, but this can be sped along with your heat tool!
