Stampin' Up! Happy Hearts for a thank you special
Last weekend Stampin' Up! held it's annual, but final Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida. All demonstrators from around the world were entitled to attend, but with a new kitchen looming I didn't think it wise to ask hubby if he's mind me disappearing for a jolly in the sunshine, so I had to make do with the live links that Stampin' Up! arranged for certain sessions. One included a lovely project shared by Carrie Cudney one of the permanent staff at Stampin' Up!. I'm sure you are all aware that you can ink your embossing folders prior to adding your card stock and then whizzing it through the Big Shot. This can create a beautiful back ground piece and Carrie demonstrated inking your embossing folder using a combo of colours and using a dauber to add them. I've cased most of her card, but added a few twists of my own. Like her I embossed my sentiment in gold on to vellum card stock, but to add more detail I used my stampin' trimmer to add an embossed frame scoring on the reverse and I also used my paper piercer to add some texture with pierced holes along the frame I created. To adhere the vellum I used a stapler to attach the twine and ribbon to my embossed background layer and a glue dot under each of the individual hearts. Saves any nasty glue marks showing!
I cased her colours of calypso coral, crisp cantaloupe and daffodil delight.
