How to Use the Heirloom Frames & Embossing Folder

Let’s start right at the beginning of the New Stampin’ Up! catalog!  These great new Heirloom Frames Die and Embossing Folder are part of the Woven Threads Suite, found on pages 12 to 14 in your new catalog, or HERE online. I created 3 different projects featuring the oval image for you today!

This amazing new Embossing Folder and Die combo can be found on page 13 in your new 2019 2020 Stampin’ UP! catalog, or #152325 HERE online!  It also includes a rectangle frame, which I’ll be highlighting soon!   For my cards today, I have used Terracotta Tile cardstock (one of the NEW 2019 2021 In Colors!) and some Terracotta Tile ink with a sponge dauber to help highlight the raised areas on some of the embossed images.

How to Use the Embossing Folder & Die:

  1.  If you would like an oval die cut image that is embossed, be sure to die cut the oval first
  2. Then emboss that oval.. it’s much easier to line up that way! (ask me how I know)

My floral card above features the die cut oval frame, sponged with Terracotta Tile ink, and layered onto an embossed background with the new Scripty embossing folder.  I stamped 2 flowers from the Floral Essence stamp set, both in Terracotta Tile ink (smaller one is “stamped off” first), and added a little stamped label from the Parcels & Petals die set, stamped with a greeting from the Free as a Bird set.  In Color Faceted Gems complete the card.

On my next 2 cards, I did not die cut the oval frame, I simply embossed the oval onto a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Terracotta Tile cardstock and layered that onto my folded card base (Seaside Spray above, Thick Whisper White below). 

Card above: I sponged the oval embossed frame with a sponge dauber. I used a Layered Ovals scallop to die cut some of the Woven Threads designer paper, then layered a stamped greeting onto a die cut from the Sailing Home die set.  Denim Ribbon and In Color Faceted Gems complete the card.

Card below:  I embossed the smaller Magnolia flower image from the Magnolia embossing folder onto Petal Pink cardstock, and colored it very lightly with Watercolor Pencils, blending with a Blender Pen for just a little contrast.  I did not sponge this frame, and kept the whole card very soft and subtle.

 

 

I hope you enjoyed the 3 ways I’ve shared today to use this beautiful new Heirloom embossing folder / die combo!

Retiring Flowering Desert Stamp Set

I love this Flowering Desert card that I received from Sandie Barnes!! She gave it to me at the San Antonio Stampin’ UP! OnStage event in April, and I think it is just gorgeous!!!!

Flowering Desert card featuring Stampin' Up! Subtle embossing folder. Card by Sandie Barnes from San Antonio OnStage April 2019

 

Sandie sponged a beautiful blend of colors in the background and stamped images from the Flowering Desert set on top of the sponged background. She also stamped the lightest cactus image on another piece of cardstock, cut it out and added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The dimension is just amazing on this card!

Did you know.. Flowering Desert is on the RETIRING list and is only guaranteed available through May 24, 2019?

Flowering Desert card featuring Stampin' Up! Subtle embossing folder. Card by Sandie Barnes from San Antonio OnStage April 2019

 

The background of this card is AMAAAZING… it’s embossed with the Subtle embossing folder, but she inked the folder (with Crumb Cake or Soft Suede? ink) prior to embossing the cardstock.. so.. not only does it have the subtle embossing but also it’s enhanced with the ink!! It’s just amazing!!  And if that wasn’t enough beautifulness, she also die cut the background with the rectangle stitched dies for ANOTHER added layer of dimension!!

Thank you, again Sandie, for this AMAZING CARD!!!

New Product Announcements from Stampin’ Up!

 

New Stampin' Up! product announcements: New Die Cutting machine and new Paper Trimmer coming soon! www.PattyStamps.com

 

Stampin’ Up! made a big announcement yesterday!

 
I wanted to fill you in and let you know how these new product announcements might affect product availability, your future purchases and your crafting experience!
 
  1. A new Die Cutting system from Stampin’ Up! will be replacing the current Big Shot. This is exciting news, as it means that Stampin’ Up! will be working directly with the manufacturer to bring all of us a new die cutting / embossing machine and that we will have more direct control over the design AND availability of products!!
  2. A new paper cutter from Stampin’ Up! will be replacing the current Stampin’ Trimmer.
 

How will it affect you?

 
  • There will be a gap in time between when the Big Shot and the Stampin’ Trimmer retire with this current catalog (or sell out) until the time when the new products are available (we don’t know exactly how long this will be, but there will NOT be a Big Shot or a paper trimmer in the new 2019-2020 catalog in June)
  • If you need to stock up on some Stampin’ Trimmer supplies, do that soon. They have ordered what they hope to be a 6 month supply of trimmer blades, but they could go quickly. (Links below)
  • Continue to use your Big Shot or other die cutting machine with all Stampin’ UP! embossing folders and dies
  • Watch for a new style of dies and embossing folders in the new 2019-2020 catalog!! Continue to use them with your current die cutting machine.
  • Dies, embossing folders and trimmer accessory items COULD sell out quickly, so shop early and don’t wait for the retiring list on Monday, April 15 to place your order if you have had your eye on any of the current dies or folders!

 

Ordering Links:

 

Tips!

  • Be sure to keep your Trimmer mat clean (a little alcohol wipe works wonders), flip the mat often, and then replace blades as necessary for best results
  • Keep your entire Trimmer clean and free of extra adhesive or paper “dust” particles, by wiping it down with a cloth or alcohol wipe at least once a month
  • Shop now for any supplies or dies or embossing folders you wish to purchase. When they sell out, they are gone.

Watercolored Hibiscus Beach Happy Card

I hope you enjoy my Watercolored hibiscus card today.  If you are in a snowy part of the world, I hope it brings happy, sunny thoughts… and I hope it inspires you to create something pretty today!

Stampin' UP! Humming Along bundle and Beach Happy stamp set card with Seaside embossing folder background. Watercolored card idea by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

 

My handstamped card was inspired by a card on Pinterest by “Scraps by Sissy” featuring the Seaside embossing folder and stamped oval with the Beach Happy Stampin’ UP! stamp set. I added the watercolored hibiscus flower from the Humming Along stamp set to make my card a little different (because I didn’t want to copy Sissy’s card 100% you know) 🙂

 

How to Watercolor the Hibiscus flower on my Stampin' UP! Humming Along bundle and Beach Happy stamp set card with Seaside embossing folder background. Watercolored card idea by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Watercolor Tips:

To create the watercolored hibiscus flower image, I stamped it in Versamark ink on Shimmery White cardstock, sprinkled gold embossing powder on it and heat set it with my Heat Tool.  Then I smooshed my clear blocks into several colors of Stampin’ UP! ink and used my AquaPainter to pick up ink colors and color the flower, starting with a light wash of Mango Melody and adding more colors as shown above.  TIP!  Although I’m not a watercolor professional by any means, I did find one tip to pass along… let the ink dry just slightly in between colors so that it blends together slowly and doesn’t just become all one new color.

 

How to stamp the Beach Happy Palm Tree with the Stampin' UP! Stamparatus and 3 green inks, Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Stamparatus Tips:

For the palm tree oval, I die cut Watercolor Paper with the largest oval in the Layering Ovals framelit set in my Big Shot, and did a light wash of Mango Melody and Soft Suede ink at the bottom for the sand.  (NOTE:  I think I like it better with the sand on less of the oval than with so much “sand” as shown above).  When that was dry, I added a light wash of Balmy Blue ink to the sky.  When it was TOTALLY dry I put the oval on my Stamparatus, held down with the magnet, and stamped the Beach Happy stamp set.  I stamped the palm tree trunk in Soft Suede and the palm fronds in 3 colors as shown above.  Using the Stamparatus means the paper stays in one place while I inked it several times in 3 greens… perfect placement!  Need more info on the Stamparatus?  Watch my Stamparatus video tutorial here.

Color Combo for Stampin' UP! Humming Along bundle and Beach Happy stamp set card with Seaside embossing folder background. Watercolored card idea by Patty Bennett www.PattyStamps.com

Stampin’ UP! Color Combo:

I used all of these colors on my card: Lovely LIpstick, Melon Mambo, Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, Grapefruit Grove, Soft Suede, Bermuda Bay, Balmy Blue, Call me Clover, Lemon Lime Twist, plus the Granny Apple Green marker.

 

You can purchase the Humming Along stamp set (which includes the hibiscus flower stamp) by itself, or you can purchase it in a bundle with the Hummingbird framelits.  You can also purchase the framelits alone, as well.  Lots of choices… but why not save 10% and get them both! 🙂

Save 10%!! Buy the Humming Along Bundle #150621 HERE.

The Seaside embossing folder is paired with the Coastal Cabana cardstock, and I used multipurpose liquid glue to add it to the top fold Crumb Cake card base.

The final touch is a grouping of 3 Glitter Enamel Dots in Coastal Cabana.  Adds just the right touch!!
