Honeycomb Embossing

I have wanted to try this out for some time now, and yesterday was the perfect time to sit down and do some fussy cutting.   Is it only me, or does anyone else find fussy cutting relaxing?  A bit like watercolouring, knitting and crocheting…..


Perhaps one day Stampin’ Up! might bring out a punch to coordinate with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder used here, but for now, each piece of the patterned paper had to be cut by hand.   I have also used one of the Needlepoint Border Embossing Folder along the bottom, and one of the Delicate Designs Folders along the top.  Can you tell that I love my Embossing Folders?? 🙂
The Crumb Cake coloured layer is one of the pieces from the Pop Up Posies Kit which I have cut one edge off and popped under some Crumb Cake ribbon, and the greeting comes from the Apothecary Art stamp set.  Oh and mustn’t forget that gorgeous patterned paper, which is from the current seasonal catalogue on Page 16, called the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack, lots of beautiful papers in it and they are great for cardmaking.

The sketch I have used for this card is this week’s sketch at the Freshly Made Sketches challenge site, and I always love a sketch challenge, so thought I would have a go at this one.
If you have any questions about this card, please feel free to contact me or leave a comment.
Happy Stamping!

Pop-up Posies

 

I love the colours in this card, so pretty!
This particular card was inspired by a very talented fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator Christine Blain from Happy Heart Cards.  As usual, I have changed things around to what works for me, but the basic idea is similar to Christine’s card.
The beautiful papers are from the Tea for Two DSP, and I have used Needlepoint Border embossing folders to create the little scallop and stitch feature through the middle.  The flower, tag and the stamp all come from the Pop-Up Posies Designer Kit, which is very versatile, and makes it so easy to create a gorgeous gift tag, or add the tag to a card as I have done here.
Send me an email if you would like to purchase one of these kits, they make creating soooooo easy! 🙂
Happy stamping!
