Manhattan Flower Card

Hi Friends!
Today I had fun playing with one of the new embossing folders from Stampin' Up! called Manhattan flower.  I just love my Sizzix Big Shot machine and I use it almost every time I make a card.  I have always been drawn to cards with texture.

For this card, I embossed the flower image on Calypso Coral card stock.  Then I used my sponge daubers to give the image a little depth.  To do this, you take your sponge dauber, dab it on your ink pad, then sponge the color on the flower.  I used the colors Primrose Petals and Raspberry Ripple.  I outlined the embossed lines with a glitter pen (non Stampin' Up!)  Then I sprayed the whole thing with my Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. After it dried, I cut the image out.

Next I started building the card base by running the back ground, a piece of River Rock card stock, through the Sizzix machine using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.

On top of that layer, I used a piece of First Edition Specialty Paper.  I aged the edges by tearing them, curling them, and distressed the edges with my Chocolate Chip ink pad and a sponge dauber.

Next I added the Flower layer.  
I decorated the flower with a butterfly which I made with Beautiful Wings Embosslits and......
you guessed Sizzzix machine!
The butterfly was made from Very Vanilla card stock and daubed with Summer Starfruit.
Pearl Basic Jewels were added to the middle of the butterfly.

Lastly the sentiment was made with the Itty Bitty Banners Stamp set and cut out with the 
Bitty Banners Framelits.

This is a close up of the beautiful detail of the embossed butterfly.  I just love this Sizzix die.

I hope you enjoyed this card.

Digital Tuesday - August 28,2012

Hi friends!  It’s Tuesday again, and you know what that means—new downloads!  We have some fantastic new artwork this week that I am absolutely drooling over! 

My favorite is Essentials Designer Series Paper. The name “Essentials” is perfect for this download. It’s just some basic patterns in black and white, but with the ability to recolor DSP in MDS 2 you can have basic patterns in any color. I have a feeling this DSP is going to show up on just about all my projects in the future.  

Another of my favorites is the Picture This Kit. It includes some fun embellishments for that “filmstrip” look that is so trendy right now.

Great Sport is a good generic set for your sports-themed projects.

For those of you who want to get your Christmas projects going, we have three new downloads that are all holiday themed:

And we have one new calendar template that is going to be perfect for gift-giving this year. I love that this one has the photo boxes built in, so all you need to do is drag and drop your pictures for the perfect personalized calendar.

Have fun designing with all the new templates this week! Click here to see a list of this week’s downloads.  

Happy Stamping!
