Well hello stamping friends, it has been a while since my last blog post! I have some great card samples that I will be sharing over the next few weeks. Stampin’ Up! has introduced wonderful new products in the Spring Occasions Catalog and this year’s Sale-a-Bration products are fabulous. I absolutely love the new exclusive Sale-a-Bration stamp set “See Ya Later”, which you can earn free with a $50 purchase.
For this card I used the You make me Happy image and combined it with the Inlaid Embossing technique to create the cloudy sky. To create the inlaid embossed background, you need to layer the punched out cloud shapes on Soft Sky cardstock. The white and gray clouds were created with the cupcake builder punch. The sun was created with the 3/4″ circle punch. Once you have all the shapes punched out, adhere them randomly on the Soft Sky cardstock. Once the background is complete, place the cardstock on the Decorative Dots Embossing folder (this embossing folder is only available during Sale-a-bration). The raised dots should be placed under the cardstock that you will be embossing and this will allow for the card-front to be raised and give the effect that the clouds and sun are inlaid in the Soft Sky cardstock.
Stamp the You Make me Happy image in Basic Gray ink on Whisper White cardstock. Color the sun image with Daffodil Delight using a blender pen. Then cut the image out with the smallest label framelit. Layer the stamped image on a larger Daffodil Delight label and pierce the cardstock with the Festive Labels piercing mat. The Soft Sky cardstock is then layered on Daffodil Delight and Pool Party cardstock.
