Say Goodbye to Marbled, Letters for You, & Large Letters Dies

I LOVE the Large Letters dies, they are my go to for scrapbook titles and are great for the eclipse technique I’m using here.  I will keep my set but there is a new die set on the way that I may have to use with this one.  I was trying to do an eclipse card I saw Jennifer McGuire do with colored letters and a white background but apparently you don’t want to use Berry Burst to do this.  🙂

For my first attempt, I used the Marbled background stamp, Versamark, and white embossing powder…Apparently you should make sure you cleaned your stamp well before putting it away because it came out with a pink tinge.  🙂  Then I stamped the letters on the background and tried to wipe away the ink off the embossing powder before die cutting….Um, that didn’t work well either, more pink tinge.  I went with it and attached the letters with mini stampin’ dimensionals.  🙂

For my second attempt, I die cut the letters first and then stamped them…Still the issue with coloring the embossing but at least it didn’t smear on the rest of the card.  I die cut 3 more sets of letters and built up the dimension for this version.

Say Goodbye to Baby Bear

I don’t think I used this set until I made this card.  That’s so sad because the bear is just so adorable and we are not lacking in stuffed bears in this house.  I used my Stamparatus and a few tries to get the images lined up.  The base layer is in Crumb Cake, the middle layer in Soft Suede, and the final layer in Early Espresso.

Say Goodbye to Dragonfly Dreams and the Detailed Dragonfly dies

I was inspired by a post by Jennifer McGuire to create this card.  Instead of coloring the glimmer paper though, I pulled out the Myths & Magic glimmer paper that retired last year.  I just love the color and how glittery it is.  The frame and the dragonflies are three layers thick, I glued each together to give them a little more heft.

Stamp-a-Stack Card 4

I didn’t use a specific stamp set for this card, instead I used sentiments from the April 2019 Paper Pumpkin and Floral Phrases stamp sets.  I love the Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper and the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper (DSP).  I’m down to just a few bits left over in both.  Thanks to Susan Campfield for the inspiration.

Say Goodbye to Best Birds, Stamp-a-Stack Card 3

I’m not sure I used the images in this stamp set much but I like the greetings.  I’ll admit that coloring the birds was a little intimidating to me.  I really need to get over that and play with my Stampin’ Blends more.  The Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) was the first DSP I purchased from the last catalog because it’s just so pretty.

Say Goodbye to Humming Along, Stamp-a-Stack Card 2

I barely knew you, “Humming Along.”  I got this stamp set at OnStage in November and only used it a couple of times.  I did really like the “Wishing You An Amazing Birthday” stamp in it.  This card layout was designed to use up some of my Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP) but I think it is a little bold to include too much of it so a 2″ strip it is.

Say Goodbye to Lift Me Up and Stamp-a-Stack card 1

I did a Stamp-a-Stack this past Saturday in order to use up my retiring Designer Series Paper (DSP) and feature some of the retiring stamps sets.  For this card I featured the Lift Me Up stamp set & dies along with the Tranquil Textures & Wood Textures DSP.

I got the idea of dying the Flax Ribbon from Cheri Stojkovich but I didn’t have enough time to get a really deep Tranquil Tide color.
