Repost: Oval Embossed Resist - Big Shot Embossing Folders

This information has been requested over and over the past few weeks so I thought I'd repost it here.  Enjoy! this is such a COOOOOL technique!

ALSO see THIS POST for a similar Christmas Tree Embossing Folder card.

AND see THIS POST for one additional way you can achieve this look by cutting your embossing folder.

 

Do you know how to get this lovely blank oval area using the Stampin' Up! Textured Impressions Embossing Folders???

Emb folder oval tree

Normally when you use one of the Impressions Folders you get an all over textured impression like this:

DSC08197

But I got a cool swap at Convention from Betty Kincannon who learned this technique from this blog here and here.  I wanted to try this with our Stampin' Up! Impressions folders, and I knew you'd want to see a tutorial, so I modified the instructions to use my Stampin' Up! products and I eliminated a few of her steps to suit my needs.... HERE YOU GO...

Step 1

Step 2

(wood template info at bottom of post)

Step 3

Step 4

Step 5

Step 6

Step 7

Then you get THIS!!

Supplies:

Emb folder supplies

I used these frames from a national craft store chain.

Emb folder wood frame

UPDATE.... you can also make your own template/frame! Use our Stampin' Up! Chipboard sheets, and any Big Shot die, and cut an opening in a rectangular piece of chipboard and make your own frame.

This will work beautifully with the following Textured Impressions Embossing Folders:

  • Petals A Plenty, mini catalog pg 21, #116824, $7.95
  • Finial Press, catalog pg 195, #115963, $7.95

Glass Glitter Christmas Card

I got to stamp with my friend Saundra a few weeks ago.. isn't this a cute design that she came up with using the Glass Glitter from Stampin' Up!?

Glitter bells saundra 
We applied the Glass Glitter using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (pg 197, item 110755).

Saundra showed us how to use the Aquapainter dipped into the lid of the Shimmer paint to paint the bells... it's sooooooooooo pretty!

Control Freaks Blog Tour - Gift Ideas

Dinnblogtour

WELCOME to the November 2010 Control Freaks Blog Tour !!!

You have probably joined me after visiting Liz's Blog and you can click on the "next blog" link at the bottom of the post to continue on the tour  :)   Our tour officially starts on Saturday, Nov. 20th.. so if you are joining us early, some of the blog tour links may not be quite up yet.. so please check back Saturday morning for the full tour.

This month we are featuring GIFT IDEAS made with Stampin' Up! Products.  Please enjoy the samples and the tour !! 

My first GIFT IDEA is an ornament made with photographs and Stampin' Up! supplies. 

Dan maria ornament 1 

These are for my nephew and his bride - they were just married this fall.  I hope they like this for their first Christmas Tree!  I used My Digital Studio to add the text to the photo. 
Dan maria ornament 2 

 I posted an idea similar to this earlier this week with some instructions.  Please see that post for more details.

My 2nd Gift Project idea is a Candy Treat great for holiday giving!

Two tags die candy 

This candy treat uses the TWO TAGS DIE (#115954, pg 206) and the Big Shot.

 Candy side 

Start with a folded piece of DSP about 2-1/2" x 7"

then place it on your TWO TAGS DIE as shown below

 Fold Two tags die 
  
Run it through the Big Shot and when it's cut out you will have a "folded" tag.  Use sticky strip or Snail to adhere your candy inside and wrap up with a ribbon and tag! 

Cut tag die 

I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead and ENJOY THE BLOG TOUR!

Stampin' Up! Christmas Ornament idea

We made these delightful ornaments in one of my recent Stampin' Up! Christmas classes... everyone loved them!!!   I got the idea from a tutorial from  " Create with Connie and Mary " - they have a wonderful Holiday project section that I subscribe to.  For full instructions, please join their Holiday Edition Subscription.

Ornament front 
I followed their instructions but changed a few things... I cut out Stampin' Up! onboard chipboard sheets using the largest circle on the Circles #2 die and the Big Shot, and that became the "bones" of my ornament.  Using sticky strip around the edge of the chipboard circle, we "pleated" Victoria Crochet Trim around the circumference.  The beautiful Cherry Cobbler image is from the Christmas Collage background stamp in the Holiday Mini catalog. Just stamp it on Natural Ivory cardstock with Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out. 

I used MY DIGITAL STUDIO to print out several different designs that could be punched out with the 1-3/4" Circle punch and added to the front of the stamped image.  A similar idea was repeated on the back using the My Digital Studio images and punches.
