The first card I created using the Pleasant Poppies stamp (p.129). I love that stamp! I embossed the image onto Early Espresso card stock with Tempting Turquoise embossing powder and again onto Tempting Turquoise card stock with Early Espresso embossing powder. The images and layers behind were cut out using the Apothocary Accents Framelits (p.191). I cut all of those layers in half and lined them up across from each other in alternating colors. I popped up the image and the layer right behind using stampin’ dimesionals, and I used the Square Lattice embossing folder on the larger layer to give it a little extra texture. I also added some DSP in the same colors to the Crumb Cake card base, and rounded the corners on the card base. Isn’t it beautiful?!
This card looks so elegant and feels a lot like an old metal piece to me. I really love how this one looks! I used the Ex Libris stamp (p.128). I used silver and black embossing powders and card stock and used the same technique as described before (cutting the images in half and lining them up). I also used the Four Frames stamp set (p.124) and the matching Decorative Label punch (p.182). The words are from the Elements of Style stamp set (p.113) and I punched that out using a Small Oval punch(p.184). I added stampin’ dimensionals under the Decorative Label and have a piece of black satin ribbon underneath.
I hope you will try this great technique. It is very impressive and will sure to bring some oohs and aahs to your card recipients too!!
