ToilI’m using Stampin Up Toile Christmas stamp and coordinating dies for today’s project. Of course, they look stunning in reds and greens, but I wanted a card my stamp class could make that represented fall and Thanksgiving.
Tips and Techniques
My goal in my stamp classes is to teach techniques. Sometimes it is a matter of reminding them of things they’ve not done for a while or something brand new and game-changing. This card probably falls into the first category. Reminding you that you can 1) stamp on Vellum, 2) heat emboss on vellum, 3) heat emboss with any Stampin Up color.
I stamped my sentiment with Cajun Craze on Vellum and quickly powdered it with Clear stamping embossing powder. Heat set the powder carefully by holding the heat gun further away than normal and keeping it moving. It will burn and warp though so be careful. I punched it out with a 1-1/2 inch circle punch.
These are the Stampin Up Stampin Blend colors I used for the Toile Christmas pretty fall branch:
- mossy meadow
- crumb cake
- dark daffodil delight
- cajun craze
I pulled in the tiny leaf punch from For Every Season punch pack. There are no perfectly flat leaves in nature so I wadded each of them up for some lines and texture before using a glue dot to adhere to the card.
Thank you for visiting. I want to hear your comments. What could I have done to make this card better? Anything I could help explain. Leave me a comment and I’ll get a response out to you right away. Until Next Week…
