By embossing my Coastal Cabana mat with the Bark 3D Embossing Folder, I was able to add lots of “wave” texture for the base of the card.

In the Waves of the Ocean Collection you’ll find wave details dies. To get the background, I’ve used the large stamp and added both Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point ink to the image for a two-tone effect.

By wrapping a little linen thread around the posts, I was able to add a little more realistic look to our pelican’s perch.

Slim Card Dies with Heart & Home Suite

Slim Card Dies with Heart & Home Suite

Slimline cards are all the rage. In today’s card making class, I’ll share how to use the new Slim Card Dies from Stampin’ Up! with the Heart & Home Suite. We will create two beautiful cards and I’ll share lots of tips and tricks.

I’ve been asked a lot recently, where do you get your inspiration? Well, that’s a difficult question. Why? Because, I get inspiration from lots of things, photos, color combinations, nature, and so much more. Today’s inspiration came from a card created by WOW Team Member Eva Hibbing. Eva created the beautiful birthday card for our January WOW Team Challenge, anything with flowers.

Eva used the Slim Card Die to create her background element in Smoky Slate. Here’s your first tip. When using the Slim Card Dies, be sure to back your card stock with adhesive sheet before die cutting. That way the entire piece becomes a sticker and is much easier to apply.

By stamping a duplicate image of the focal flower, I was able to give the element lots of dimension. Just fussy cut the flower, color with Stampin’ Blends, shape and pop into place. 

The color palette on this card includes Misty Moonlight, Smoky Slate, Cinnamone Cider and Basic White. The inside of the card is simple with some basic stamping in Basic Gray.

Because I CASEed Eva’s card, it was easy for me to hop into the next version of this layout.

This time, I wanted the card to have a very springtime look and feel. I used the Slim Card Dies to cut my background from vellum. But, first, I inked the vellum in Pear Pizzazz, backed it with adhesive sheet and ran it through my Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.

Want to make double and triple loop bows quick and easy? I’ll show you how in today’s video tutorial. But, in the meantime, be sure to check out the template for my bow maker.

Did you notice all the little bees on my card? There are three different profile images in the Honeybee Home set. 

This time, I stepped things up even on the inside of the card.

Sister’s Vintage Birthday Card

Sister’s Vintage Birthday Card

It’s my sister’s birthday and she loves everything purple, sparkly and butterflies. Creating her vintage birthday card brought a big smile to my face. I sure hope it does the same for Kathy. I thought of her the entire time I was creating her card. That’s one of things I love about card making. It’s a personal, thought provoking experience. You give a little piece of “you” with each card you share.

Sister's Vintage Birthday Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Don’t you just love the way Stampin’ Up! products all coordinate? In my opinion, I think that makes creating a lot more enjoyable. You don’t have to search around, the paper, ink, embellishments, ribbon all coordinate. Since Kathy’s favorite color is purple, that’s where I started her vintage birthday card. I pulled my Highland Heather cardstock and went to town.

Sister's Vintage Birthday Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I embossed the mat with my Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder, I was able to create lots of texture to begin my layering process. The lovely Hand Penned DSP had the perfect Highland Heather sheet. I knew I wanted to include some soft flowers and vellum card stock was the perfect choice

Sister's Vintage Birthday Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

To create my flowers, I turned to the Flowers & Leaves Punch and embossed them with the Ornate Floral embossing folder. By lightly inking with my blending brush, I was able to enhance the embossing and give the flower just a hint of color.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox Fancy Fold

Grassy Grove Shadowbox Fancy Fold

My Dad is about to celebrate his 91st birthday. Time for a special card, don’t you think? My Grassy Grove Shadowbox Fancy Fold is so Dad. He loves everything outdoors and nature inspired. A farmer his whole life, there’s no big surprise about that.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My color combination for today’s project is a bit Fall inspired. We’ve got Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, Old Olive and Basic White. To achieve both the detailed trees and the blue sky background, I’ve used the fabulous new Sale-a-Bration item, Simply Marvelous DSP. 

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Even if you don’t want to kick it up a notch with the Grassy Grove  shadowbox, you can create this lovely card front and have a fabulous masculine card design. But, as you know, you’re only 91 once. And Dad loves it when I create interactive cards for him.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

By using my handy Stampin’ Write Markers in Old Olive and Cinnamon Cider, I was able to ink up the tree stamp. That way, I could easily achieve two colors in the image.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Is that die cut not gorgeous? I love the way the deers are nestled up behind the trees. It looks like they are taking a walk in the forest.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I used all but one die from the set, this card gives you a true feel for what you can create when you purchase this new bundle.
