More Double Embossing

I am still posting double embossed cards from my April demonstration - they are just so much fun to make.  Check out my April 24 post to see the version we made in stamp club.

You will run your card stock through the Big Shot 3 times total, and you will also only use 1 of the clear cutting pads since the chipboard adds the extra thickness. 

First place a narrow piece of chipboard over one edge of the tulip frame.  Run the card stock through with the tulip frame. 

Second run the other embossing folder through.  This time the chipboard will be attached to the back of the embossing folder just over the center area you want to be embossed. 

Third, line up the one section of the tulip frame on the bottom of the card stock and run through the Big Shot one more time. 

Here is a great tutorial done by Jan Farring that might be helpful.

Betsy's Blossom's Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek of one of the new stamp sets in the just about to be release 2012-2013 Stampin' Up! catalog.  Betsy's Blossoms has some other flowers not pictured in this sample with a lot of possibilities.  I like how the little birdy's wing matches the big flower so I decided to focus on these two stamps.  I created this card for a swap I am in with fellow demonstrators.  We all chose a stamp set to use from the list of sets available for demonstrator pre-order.  But don't worry - you can start ordering them this Friday, June 1.  If you need a catalog, let me know, and watch for my June newsletter next week with more information about our great new products.

Double Embossed Wedding I Do Card

This is one of my favorite double embossed cards that I did for last month's Spring into Stamping.  I made a card a few months ago with this color combination and just loved it so I decided to repeat it.  I think it would look nice in black too!  Check out this post for directions.

May Scrapbook Layout

I took my motivation for this from a page layout on Savy Sketches that I saw on Pinterest.  Thanks Michelle for pinning it!  The original layout is a single page so I continued onto the right page with more polka dots and Designer Series Paper.  I am planning ahead for a future vacation with this layout so that I can come home and drop my photos in and be done!

Father's Day Tree

Last weekend I had a birthday Stamp-a-Stack, and with Mother's Day and Father's Day coming soon, I designed two cards that could be used for those occasions too.  So here is a look at the masculine birthday card turned Father's Day card.

Double Embossing Strawberry Card

Here is one the samples I made for my recent demonstration of embossing folder techniques.  When you run card stock through a Big Shot twice in two different embossing folders, you get a frame on an already textured piece of card stock.   

            ·         Cut desired shape from chipboard Save
                 both pieces. 

·         Attach chipboard to the back of both embossing folders using Dotto.  Fig. 1   

·         Place card stock in embossing folder.   

·         Use Tab 2 on Multipurpose Platform.  Pace embossing folder with chipboard side down and cover with one clear cutting pad.  Emboss with Big Shot.

·         Position smaller embossing folder over blank area left in card stock.  Fig. 2 

·         Emboss again in Big Shot.  Fig. 3 

Some adjustments may need to be made depending on the thickness of your chipboard.  I used the leftover chipboard from my Specialty DSP packages.

I've got a lot more to post in the next couple of weeks, and there are a lot of great samples of this technique available on the web.  Angie Leach has a detailed tutorial on her blog.
