Have you checked out the Celebrations Duo Textured Impression Folders yet? Instead of embossing a raised pattern, you will have a debossed word on your cardstock. You can just leave the debossed word or stamp over the word to make it stand out a bit more. I used the “Happy” folder to create this handmade birthday greeting card.

The “Birthday” is from a stamp included in the Birthday Blast set. I used a Calypso Coral marker to omit the “Happy” from the stamp and then just stamped the “Birthday” under the debossed word. By omitting parts of stamps, you can extend the stamps you own.

You can use any solid image over the debossed area and it will only ink the main Whisper White card stock and leave the recessed area white. The balloons work great for birthdays, but could even just use random or basic shapes. The coordinating Happy Celebrations Set includes great images to stamp over the debossed areas.

I love the soft look of the So In Love product suite. The stamps, dies, designer series paper, ribbon, and Falling Petals embossing folder all work together so beautifully. I used these coordinating products to create this wedding card. This bundle would also work well for Valentine’s Day and anniversaries.

Monday Sketch with Stampin' Up! So In Love Congratulations card. find supplies www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I covered the card front with an embossed vellum overlay. The pattern of the Falling Petals embossing folder is more concentrated along the bottom and then opens up more as you work toward the top of the folder. I used a portion of the folder where the petals are closer together along the bottom.

Here is the sketch for today’s card. The patterned paper is from the Falling In Love paper and has a Blushing Bride die cut layer. You want to use the Precision Plate with the So Detailed for the best results when you are running the die through the Big Shot. When you use the Precision Plate, the die cut pieces will just fall out of the cut cardstock. I hope you give this sketch a try.

The Watercolor Pencils are available again (maybe temporarily). The Watercolor Pencils have been extremely popular and Stampin’ Up! has more in and coming, but depending on orders, they may go on back order again. If these are high on your wishlist, be sure to place your order today. I used the Watercolor Pencils to color these flowers from the Helping Me Grow set on this super simple card.

I colored the flowers with the white pencil before coloring with the Daffodil Delight pencil. I liked how the yellow looked over the white. The stems are just colored straight with the Old Olive pencil. The flowers are accented with the Perfect White Accents colored black with a Painter Pen. I found the paint pen at our local discount store. These pens are available in many colors and I love being able to add color to the accent pieces.

Valentine’s Day is coming quickly and we are about at the end of regular shipping time to receive product in time to create for Valentine’s Day. You can use the Lift Me Up set for Valentine’s Day and more. I have already posted many ideas for this set that are not for Valentine’s Day. Click here to see another idea for the Lift Me Up set.

The clouds behind the red hot air balloon is Whisper White cardstock that I have sponged with Pool Party ink and then die-cut. I have been asked why I would sponge white cardstock rather than just use Pool Party cardstock. I like the look you get with the sponged cardstock because it is softer and the color is not as solid. Meaning, that there is a little bit a variation in the color.

“It is perfect for teenagers,” that was my first thought when I saw the Custom Tee set. And now you can even pair it with the Sale-A-Bration set Designer Tee for more options. However, you can even use the Designer Tee without the Custom Tee set. Check out the samples the Stampin’ Up! Artists have designed.

Watch the following video made by Stampin’ Up! to see more about the Designer Tee stamp set.

The emboss resist technique is one of my favorite techniques and it looks like it takes a lot of time, but it doesnt. The flowers from the Avant-Garden Sale-A-Bration set are embossed with clear powder and will resist the powder sponged over the image. I used Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, and Blushing Bride to create the Ombre background.

Scroll down to see a video tutorial on how to make this card.

The word “love” is die cut from Basic Black cardstock and I love the contrast between the word and the background. The little “sending” is from the set Sunshine Sayings that coordinates with the Sunshine Whishes Thinlits. You can create for so many different occasions with these two products working together.

It’s time for a Monday Sketch! I did a combination flowers stamped on the card front and stamped flowers die-cut for this card. I like the dimension and how easy it was to place the flowers around the sentiment. You can create very beautiful flowers of any color with the Special Reason set. I used Perfect Plum, Daffodil Delight, and Pear Pizzazz.

Monday Sketch Stampin' Up! Special Reason. Find supplies at www.shopwithmystamplady.com

I placed my flowers, stamped the sentiment, and then decided the card needed a bit more. It may be hard to see in the picture, but I spritzed the lower left of the card front and the left side of the sentiment piece with Perfect Plum ink mixed with rubbing alcohol. I mixed the ink with rubbing alcohol so it would dry more quickly. The spritzed ink made such a difference to the overall look of the card.

Here is the sketch for today’s card. I used flowers for the white circle layer. The flowers spread across the right edge of the card front and I even carried the flowers over the sentiment piece. The baker’s twine wrapped around the card grounds the sentiment and flowers.
