Cut & Emboss Embellishments

Hi everyone! This week I have been playing with Momenta Cut & Emboss Sets. I was impressed with how easy it was to create a really nice embossed die-cut embellishment for my cards. I LOVE butterflies and started with the Butterfly Cut & Emboss Set first.

I used Watercolor Paper and some Stencil tape to keep the butterfly embossing die positioned over the die-cut image. Once in position, I placed the butterfly embossing plate and watercolor butterfly on a Silicone Rubber Embossing Mat. The spongy mat gives the embossing plate something to press into when it’s run through a Die Cutting Machine.

The Creative Impressions Essentials Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent Watercolor Palette contains a great spectrum of colors. I selected blues and greens for my Watercolor Paper butterflies.

First I painted the embossed background with very watery blue paint and then I painted the de-bossed portions of the wings with both blue and green watercolors. Once dry, I added some sparkle with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops onto the de-bossed portions and let dry.

I placed my butterflies on Twilight Jewels Paper and a Bendi Die-Cut Card. Lime Jewel Border Dazzles™ Stickers along the top and bottom card edges, Birthday Greetings Dazzles™ Stickers and white velvet glitter ribbon from Twilight Jewels Ribbons added the finishing touches.

When I first saw the Bird Cut & Emboss Set I knew I was going to use it with Song Birds Paper Pack, Scrapbooking Dazzles™ Stickers and Ribbon Set! I cut and embossed my sweet little bird from black cardstock and then brushed Indian Gold Nuvo Embellishment Mousse over the embossed surface. I foam taped the bird to the card and then added some gold around the edges of my card.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you come away inspired to make something today. Happy crafting!

Swirl Frame Embossed Card + Search Our Blog!

 

Happy Monday to you all, and I have a new card to show you…

 

But business first. The Paper Wishes Blog now has a search bar—look on the top right. HOORAY!!! Now you can search previous blog posts for cardmaking ideas, event info and whatever else you might be looking for. 🙂

 

Now onto the project. I actually made this quick birthday card at home for my mom! As many of you know, I have three daughters—ages 3, 2 and 9 months! Being able to make a card, even a simple one, is a miracle in and of itself! But when you work at Paper Wishes, you no longer have the luxury of buying cards!! 😉

 

whalecardweb

 

Supplies:

 

This card was pretty straightforward—the whale image was stamped and clear-embossed onto white cardstock, and then inked with Peacock Feathers Mini Distress Ink. I filled in the little heart with Red Stickles™ glitter glue.

Now obviously you could have “blinged out” this card a whole lot more, but a) time was a factor and b) I really just wanted the embossing to stand out! The Swirly Frame embossing folder is one of my favorites because it’s gorgeous and it frames any focal perfectly!

I’ll be trying to bring you lots of cardmaking ideas in the near future because… we have less than 2 weeks until World Cardmaking Day! Yikes, how did that happen? So stay tuned, because we will soon be announcing details for our World Cardmaking Day Challenge!

I hope you all have a wonderful (and creative) week! Thanks for stopping by!

Card Making Idea: Flower Inside/Out Die-Cut Card

 

Look at this card! Susan designed it using Hot Off The Press’ Inside/Out Flower Die-Cut Cards, and it’s a really wonderful example of just how easy these cards make it to unleash some serious creativity.

 

flycardfront-sc

Designed by Susan Cobb

 

Designer’s Tip: Cover the flower die-cuts with contrasting patterned papers, then embellish the flower center with several tiny Dazzles™ flowers. Use the Dazzles™ swirls to decorate the large flower frame.

 

Supplies:

 

Instructions:

  1. Front: Fold the Inside/Out Flower Die-Cut card in half on the scored line. Now fold the left side of the front back (to the left), so the large flower shape extends on the right side. Cover the left side of the card front with Artful Watercolor striped paper. Trim the excess from the inside of the flower opening even with the card.
  2. Cover the large flower frame with Artful Watercolor purple/pink textured paper, trimming the edges even. Ink the edges with Plumeria ink as desired. Align the flower frame with the flower shape on the card front, just for placement. Add Artful Affirmations Dazzles™ swirls on the upper left and lower right edges of the flower frame, and trim the swirls even with the edges of the frame as shown. Foam tape the flower frame on the card front. Add Dazzles™ borders on the top and bottom edges of the striped paper. Place the large Dazzles™ butterfly on the teal portion of Artful Watercolor teal/green textured paper and trim evenly around the edges. Foam tape the body of the butterfly on the lower left edge of the frame.
  3. Inside: Cover the inside of the card with Artful Watercolor blue paper and ink the edges with Plumeria ink. Cut a 5” length of 1/8” wide teal grosgrain ribbon and glue it even with the right side of the card. Cover the medium sized solid flower die-cut with Artful Watercolor dark pink textured paper. Ink the edges with Plumeria ink. Place centered on the inside of the card, then close the card and adjust the petals so they are aligned with the flower opening from the front. Glue in place.
  4. Cover the small flower die-cut with the teal portion of the Artful Watercolor teal/green textured paper. Ink the edges with Plumeria ink. Foam tape centered on the dark pink flower. Place Dazzles™ tiny flowers clustered on the center of the small flower. Place “fly” on the bottom of the dark pink flower. Back the two small butterflies with Artful Watercolor purple or blue paper and glue near the dark pink flower as shown, making sure they don’t show from the front when the card is closed. Add “love more” and “worry less” near the lower left corner as shown.

 

Not only are these blank die-cut cards incredibly fun to work with and decorate, but they also make it easy to showcase some of your favorite papers! Susan used contrasting Artful Watercolor scrapbooking papers, and you can see five different, coordinating papers even with the card closed! It’s kind of amazing when you think about it! I thought this was such a beautiful card that I just had to share. Thanks for stopping by!

Pop-Up Box Card with Gold Shadow-Stamped Acetate!

Happy Wednesday! Here’s a gorgeous card that you might not have seen! Gail designed it for our Stamping 101 page—if you haven’t visited before, you should take a look. Stamping 101 features stamping basics, plus more advanced techniques, helpful hints, information on ink pads and of course, more projects!

Designed by Gail Booth

Designed by Gail Booth

 

Designer Tip: Stamping on acetate with Metallic StazOn® can be slippery, so use light pressure. I used a color printer to journal “Mom” on the back panel, but black would work fine, or you could write “Mom” with a burgundy colored marker.

Supplies:

Instructions:

1. Card base: Cut six 2½”x2½” and one 2½”x5½” Roses & Lace green lace papers. Use Gold StazOn® to stamp the lace border centered at the bottom of three square pieces and the one long piece, then mat all of the pieces on the large pink rose paper with 1/8” borders. Follow the die-cut pop-up box instructions to assemble the box with Ultra Tape, but don’t install the inner supports yet. Close the box and lay flat on your work surface. Glue the stamped matted pieces onto the bottom panels with the long piece on the back panel (the one without an upper scored flap), then the remaining pieces onto the upper flaps (these will flop downward when the box is opened).

2. Card front: Open the box with the flaps down and the long panel at the back. Cut four 2 5/8”x2 5/8” pink lace papers. Journal “Mom” in burgundy on the center right side of one piece. Stamp the lace border in gold centered at the bottom of three pieces and at the top of the “Mom” piece, placing the scalloped edge on the edge of the paper. Cut 1/16” around the scalloped edge of the stamped lace, then mat all of the pieces on burgundy lace paper with 1/16” borders. Punch holes along the straight edge of the stamped lace, 1/8” from each side, and two holes centered at each scalloped valley, as shown. Lace with 1/8” ivory grosgrain, tying a bow at the center of two pieces. Glue the stamped matted pieces onto the three folded down panels and the “Mom” piece on the back panel, with the lace on the outer edge of each panel, and the bows on the center panels, as shown.

3. Supports: Stamp the lace border in gold centered at the top of two 2¾”x1½” green lace papers. Cut 1/16” around the scalloped edge of the stamped lace, then glue the strips even with the bottom of the two inner supports. Ultra Tape the two supports in place, as shown on the pop-up box instructions, close to the top open edge of the box (the lace edges extend above the opening.

4. TECHNIQUE: Shadow Stamping on Acetate: Stamp “Thinking of You” and “Wishing You a Beautiful Day” in gold on the heat resistant acetate, then stamp the same images over the first ones again with Scarlet SurfaceZ ink, offsetting the image up and to the right a bit for a shadow effect. Let dry, then cut out the sentiments and Zot™ onto the front and back panels, as shown. Use the same technique to stamp several small flowers, butterflies, hearts and scrolls. Cut out around the edge of each stamped image.

5. Zot™ ¼” wide strips from the acetate that comes with the pop-up box onto the backs of the pieces and Zot™ the other end of the strips onto the backs of the supports, arranging the pieces as shown. Zot™ on a scroll on the back panel and two tiny butterflies on the front and back panels.

This card is just stunning, and our Pop-Up Box Die-Cut Cards will deliver flawless results! I hope you’re feeling inspired and ready to do a little creating of your own! Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

New HOTP Stamp Set Featured In Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine With Projects From Sara Naumann

Flipping through July’s issue of Scrap & Stamp Arts, I came across something wonderful—new cards from Sara Naumann featuring HOTP’s Postcards stamp set! Talk about a win-win! In the article, Sara shares her technique for painting with pigment ink. And it’s not just a good read – the projects are wonderful too! Here’s a peek at two of her cards that were featured:

Gorgeous! I know I’ve said it before, but I really enjoy Sara’s “light & bright” style, and I’m especially in love with the contrast on her second card! Below is a look at the stamp set that was used:

Mixed Media Cardmaking Projects from Sara Naumann Using Megaflakes

Happy Friday! It’s been a while since I’ve shown a project, so to make up for it, here’s two! Both of these cards were designed by Sara Naumann, who joined us in the Paper Wishes studio on Tuesday for Paper Wishes LIVE. I wanted to give you this up close look, along with her instructions. We are working furiously to make all of the Paper Wishes LIVE projects available, so over the next few days, you are going to see a whole new crop of new card making and scrapbooking project ideas showing up!

But enough business—on to the projects!!! Both projects feature detailed botanical images from Hot Off The Press’ Unforgettable stamp set which is one of my favorites (yes, I have a lot of favorites around here). On this first card, Sara shows us how to create a gorgeous gilded background on vellum, and it’s EASY! She also demonstrated this technique on Paper Wishes LIVE, so you can watch it again if you’d like to see exactly what she does. Here’s her card:

PWL_15MAY-SNcd3a

And inside:

PWL_15MAY-SNcd3b

I snuck into Paulette’s office early this morning, and snagged this card so I could show you the details up close. I love not just the Megaflakes background, but also the shine of the Dazzles™ lace border!

snmegaflake

Sara’s tip: Create gorgeous gilded backgrounds with a simple swipe of FlitterGlu on a cosmetic wedge! The more glue, the more area will be covered with metallic flake—here, I’ve left plenty of the teal vellum showing to emphasize the contrast. The vellum will curl up when the glue dries, so I recommend placing it in a plastic sheet protector and between two books to flatten.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Cut a 3 3/4”-wide piece of teal vellum. Apply FlitterGlu to a cosmetic wedge and swipe horizontally across the piece. Sprinkle Winter Dawn MegaFlake over the vellum and use fingertips to burnish flakes into the adhesive. Gently polish with the Scoochy Foam. Mat the top and bottom edges with black cardstock.
  1. Place the card fold at the top. Cover with green patterned paper. Glue the vellum piece in the center. Place the lace border Dazzles™ on a 1 1/8”-wide strip of green patterned paper; this won’t be long enough to go all the way across the card front, so cut it in half width-wise and glue one piece even with the right side of the card and the other even with the left side.
  1. Stamp the butterfly on white cardstock with black ink. Mat on black cardstock and wrap the top and bottom corners with teal ribbon. Color the butterfly with BT2, BT4 and BT1 Spectrum Noir pens. Foam-tape to the card front.
  1. Add a knotted piece of green ribbon at the left side of the matted piece, and the Dazzles™ accent at the bottom of the card front.
  1. For the card inside: Use the chisel tip of BT4 to ink the long edges of a 3”-wide piece of green patterned paper. Glue to the inside of the card. Stamp the small butterfly and sentiment on white cardstock with black. Ink the edges with BT4, then add it to the inside of the card, along with a Dazzles™ swirl and a leftover strip of gilded vellum.

 

Sara’s next card also uses Megaflakes, but this time she stamped her image with FlitterGlu to create a gilded, stamped focal. I really love the clean look of this card! The carefully placed elements highlight the detail of the gilded flowers without being overwhelming.

PWL_15MAY-SNcd4a

And the inside:

PWL_15MAY-SNcd4b

 

Sara’s tip: When you’re done stamping with the FlitterGlu, be sure to clean your stamp immediately—soap and water will do the trick. If you can’t get to a sink quickly, keep a container of water nearby and simply drop in the stamp to soak until it can be cleaned properly. With detail stamps like these, it’s a good idea to give a scrub with an old toothbrush to remove glue from tiny areas.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. Place the three stamps on one block. Stamp on white cardstock using FlitterGlu. Sprinkle Winter Dawn MegaFlake over the stamped images and use fingertips to burnish flakes into the adhesive.
  1. Gently polish with the Scoochy Foam to reveal the stamped design. Stamp “you make life special” with brown ink and color in the flower and “life” with Spectrum Noir BT4 pen.
  1. Cut the stamped piece to 5 1/2” x 3 3/4” and mat on brown cardstock. Add Jewel Dazzles™ at each corner, then wrap with sheer ribbon and brown twine. Hold two pieces of brown twine together, then tie in a bow. Glue to the gilded focal as shown.
  1. Place the card fold on the side. Cover with brown patterned paper. Glue a 4 1/2”-wide piece of herringbone vellum onto a piece of white cardstock the same size. Glue to the center of the card, trimming the ends even with the top and bottom of the card. Note: A light application of glue stick will not show through the patterned vellum, but you still want to apply it sparingly.
  1. Glue the gilded card focal in the card center.
  1. For the card inside: Glue a 4 1/2” x 4” piece of herringbone vellum on top of a piece of white cardstock the same size. Glue to the inside of the card.
  1.  Stamp the butterfly and sentiment on white cardstock with brown ink. Color with BT2, BT4 and BT1. Use the chisel tip of BT4 to edge the white cardstock. Mat again on white and glue inside the card. Tie a bow in brown twine and glue as shown.

Thank you Sara for creating such beautiful cards! And with my (current) favorite paper pack. The white cardstock she chose contrasts well with the Trail Blazer scrapbooking papers and patterned vellum to create these fresh, delightful cards! I also have to thank Sara for coining my new favorite term of endearment—because we really do love our “Paper Wishers!” You can also check out Sara’s blog here.

Have a great weekend! 🙂

Not Your Normal Cards!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope you all enjoyed World Card Making Day! We had some fun contests and challenges, and the fun hasn’t ended! Right now you can still join our October Card Making Contest that takes place on the Paper Wishes Message Board and this month the challenge is to design a card that is uniquely shaped or folded! So I went in search of a little inspiration for you all! Don’t forget to click on each image for supplies and instructions!

This first card was designed by Teresa Welch, who always has a new folded card up her sleeve. This one is simple to create and uses Hot Off The Press’ new Winter Wishes Artful Card Kit (ACK). The easel portion simply gets propped up behind the adorable die-cut embellishments on the inside of the card.

Here is another card Teresa designed using the same ACK, combined with Silver Ripple holographic paper and Silver Jewel Dazzles™ stickers. The front focal flap lifts upward, and the lower circle-covered section unfolds, revealing a pocket inside the card! So cool! The pocket is perfect for a gift card or family photo!

Front Fold Card designed by Teresa Welch

This Oval Swing Card was created using the Oval Swing Card template and the Gingerbread ACK. The thing I love about these templates is that you can easily create an unlimited number of moveable cards IN ANY COLOR. No more plain white cards! Although as Teresa shows us below, sometimes white is still the perfect choice.

This spooky, sparkly Halloween card was designed by Debbie Samples, and features a blank Center Step Card as its base. The blank Center Step cards have been pre-cut and even pre-folded for your convenience! Just dive right in and start decorating (my favorite part)! Debbie used Hot Off The Press’ Halloween Papers along with the Twisted Tree Cling Rubber Stamp and Spoonful of Midnight Embossing Powder & Elements from Stampendous to create this haunting look!

This card is not quite as seasonal as the others, but it’s a beautiful example of a Cascading Card and why not show a little love year-round?! The front pulls out accordion-style for display, and the folding panels give you lots of options for embellishing. This card was created with Hot Off The Press’ Red Velvet Paper Pack and Sweetie Pie Dazzles™, as well as the Paper Artist Love and 5 Hearts cutting die set.

And a final example of of a very cool Double-Fold Pop-Out Card! I love this card – the Butterfly Garden ACK papers are beautiful, and I love the symmetry of the pop-out section. Lots of visual impact here!

So – are you ready to learn the real reason behind my sudden folded-card fixation? Here at Paper Wishes, we have been working hard on a brand new DVD! Teresa’s Uniquely Folded Cards DVD has been scheduled for release in January! And trust me, it is packed with tons of projects that you are going to want to create, so mark your calendars and dust off your rulers!!!
