Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Night of Navy week, Day 3 : Floral Boutique & Copper Wedding Cards.
Continuing with my Night of Navy week I just had to include some wedding cards, and definitely had to add Copper Heat Embossing to them. I have of course used the Floral Boutique DSP and Washi tape and the Floral Phrases stamp set because they are perfect for wedding cards.
This is the first time I have heat embossed that gorgeous flower stamp, I did two versions so I could decide which positioning worked best and as you can see I couldn’t decide so did both 🙂
For this card I used a base of Night of Navy card, with a layer of Floral Boutique DSP (1/8″ smaller, bet you guessed I was going to say that ). My embossed layer is on Whisper White and is 1/2″ smaller. I stamped my image top and bottom and my sentiment using Versamark ink, I then poured the copper embossing powder over the stamping before pouring it back into the pot, gave it a couple of taps to get any loose powder off and heat embossed it.
I added some washi tape to separate the stamping, I decided it needed Wedding Wishes on it so made a little tag and heat embossed the sentiment on, I attached it by punching a 1/8″ circle in both the tag and the top layer of the card and used a few strands of Copper Metallic Thread to tie it on.
For this card I stamped my images into the corners, added some washi tape under and then cut these diagonally before attaching them to some Night of Navy card.
This left a lovely large plain section in the middle for me use my Layered Letters Alphabet to add Mr & Mrs again heat embossed in copper. I glued this panel to a card base of Thick Whisper White. My last touch was a ‘For the Newlyweds’ stamp from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set, on a Classic Label punch out.
I have to admit I wasn’t sure I was going to have a blog post for you today, while making these cards yesterday everything was going wrong. Next doors was having a new alarm fitted and they seemed to be having problems as it was near constantly going off for about 2 hours and I was struggling to concentrate. I for some reason couldn’t get my rounded corners to work properly for ages, next I put my glue on the wrong side of my DSP so had to cut it again.
I originally was using a complete white layer on my second card and not cutting the diagonals, but I stamped my Mrs & Mrs in Night of Navy and Covered in Clear embossing powder for the Night of Navy to shine and stand out, then on heat embossing it realised I had used white not clear. At this point I was on the verge of giving up, so made myself a cuppa took a few deep breaths and tried again. All wasn’t lost though because I think I prefer they way it has turned out by cutting out the mistake layering on Night of Navy and using the copper. And eventually the noise stopped thankfully.
I hope you like the way these turned out.
