Faux Marble Look

Details: Card base is Pretty in Pink, layered with Whisper white that was embossed with Vintage Wallpaper Embossing folder. I made 3 panels for the front, inspired by these dominos I altered.

I stamped the En Francais background stamp on Glossy White card stock with Brown Stazon Ink. Then, using sponge daubers, I sponged on Pretty in Pink and So Saffron ink.

The panels were matted with Chocolate chip card stock and adhered to the base with stampin dimensionals.

To finish off the card, I tied Pretty in Pink 5/8″ Satin Ribbon around the bottom of the card.

With Deepest Sympathy Card {Thanks for Caring}

This card uses the Thanks for Caring stamp from the Occasions Mini Catalog. Unfortunately, I have needed to make a few sympathy cards lately.

The base is River Rock textured card stock. I placed a wide strip of Chocolate Chip card stock down the front, layered with a short piece of Elegant Soiree DSP. Above and below that piece, I used 2 Basic Pearls.

As for the sentiment, I colored it with SU Markers: Soft Suede, Baja Breeze, and River Rock. It was stamped on Whisper White card stock on which I paper pierced the corners only. With a sponge dauber, I sponged on some River Rock ink just to soften the white a little bit. That was matted onto Chocolate Chip textured card stock with stampin dimensionals.

Horizontally, I added a strip of Baja Breeze card stock, embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.

Vintage Wallpaper Embossing & Brayer Cards

I was trying to come up with ways to use the brayer. The obvious choice is to use glossy card stock and different colors of ink to create a scenery type background, like a sunset or a sky. To show its versatility and some newer techniques, I opted to use the brayer as a tool for highlighting embossed images.

For this card, I used Early Espresso for the base and Baja Breeze card stock for the embossed layer. The Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and the Big Shot was used to emboss the Baja Breeze layer, then I used the brayer inked up with Early Espresso ink to highlight the raised image.

The scallop circle medallion was made using the 2 3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. I found a good video tutorial here. The trick is to punch out 2 scallop circles, cut between one set of scallops to the center of the circle, then fold between each scallop in an accordian fashion. Attach the two scallops together to get a complete circle.

I used the 1/2″ Circle Punch to make a Baja Breeze center and added a Glimmer Brad from the neutrals collection. Attach the medallion to the card with stampin dimensionals.

Victoria Crochet Trim complements the vintage style of the card. The sentiment is from Great Friends stamped in Baja Breeze ink on Very Vanilla, punched out with the Word Window Punch and layered onto Early Espresso Modern Label Punch. Paper piercing highlights the sentiment.


Here is similar card, stepped up version. The base is Naturals Confetti, layered with Early Espresso (embossed with Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder). The top layer is Baja Breeze (embossed and brayered) then cut with the Top Note Die.

Using the Large Oval Punch, I made a window in the Top Note layer, then stamped the sentiment from Thank You Kindly on Very Vanilla scrap in Baja Breeze ink. I layered the card stock behind the window in the Top Note, then added an Early Espresso scallop oval frame around it. To make the frame, punch a large oval out of early espresso card stock, then line up the scallop oval punch around the hole and punch.

I added a Very Vanilla basic brad and Victoria Crochet Trim to finish the card. The medallion is adhered to the base with a stampin dimensional.
