Our challenge this week was set by Gwen. Along with the sketch we have to use Embossing on our cards, ie Heat Embossing or Dry Embossing using your Big Shot & Embossing Folders or any other Embossing that you may like to try.
I’ve been playing with colours the last couple of weeks & decided to go ahead with one of the combinations I found I really liked.
Base Card – Whisper White – 8 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ or 22cm x 15cm
Layer 1 – Basic Gray – 5 3/4″ x 4″ or 14.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Whisper White – 5 5/8″ x 3 7/8″ or 14cm x 9cm
Layer 3 – Not Quiet Navy – 1″ x 5 5/8″
Stamp Set – Perfect Punches, Nature Walk, French Foliage, Established Elegance
Ink – Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy
Cardstock – Whisper White, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy
Ribbon – 5/8″ White Organza
Punches – Scallop Trim Border, Scallop Oval
Embossing Folder – Vimtage Wallpaper
Accessories – Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive, Big Shot
I randomly stamped my images onto the smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Marina Mist & Not Quite Navy Inks. The whole piece was put through the Big Shot using Embossing Folder – Vintage Wallpaper.
I punched along both sides of the piece of Not Quite Navy Cardstock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, adhered the ribbon along the middle, tucked the ends under & tied a knot. This whole piece was then adhered to the piece of Basic Gray Cardstock & finally to the Base Card – Whisper White.
I stamped the wording onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Not Quite Navy Ink, punched with the Scallop Oval Punch & adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!
