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.

#TGIFC153 Bonus Week Challenge

Today I’m playing along with the TGIF Challenge and I knew exactly which card I was going to CASE!  I’d seen it on the Demonstrator Planning Place Facebook group earlier and LOVED IT!  Stesha used the Springtime Florals DSP from Sale-a-Bration which I sadly didn’t get but that gave me the opportunity to try and recreate it using current Stampin’ Up! supplies.

Marbled Bloomin’ Love

The Global Design Project challenge this week was right up my alley, I love clustered elements on cards.  🙂

J. Pollock Designs - Stampin' Up! - Bloomin' Love, Marbled

The Whisper White panel is cut to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″.  Using Versamark, I stamped the Marbled background on it and embossed with white embossing powder.

Here is the image of the card mine is based on:
