Razzleberry Color Embossing

I have been wanting to try my hand at color embossing after I saw how beautiful it looked on fellow SUO Blogger #8, PonyGirl40Stamps blog. Basically it is inking up the embossing folder before running your cardstock through the Big Shot. It gives a soft shaded or worn look that really is so pretty. It took me a couple of tries to get it right but it really is simple. I made this card for my wonderful mil's birthday. She's a fellow purple lover so I enjoyed using these colors. The kissing technique was also used on the Medallion background stamp. I inked it up in Pale Plum and then inked up the Bella Toile background stamp in Rich Razzleberry. I then stamped Bella Toile on top of the Medallion stamp and then stamped it on Whisper White card stock. Whew! Got all that?! If you click on the image you will see the deets much better. Thanks for looking!

Stamps: Medallion, Bella Toile, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum
Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum & Whisper White
Accessories: Rich Razzleberry Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, Rhinestone Brad, Paper Piercing Tool, Large Oval Punch, Finial Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder & Big Shot

Goth Trick or Treat

Like I've said, I'm not a huge Halloween person but I did purchase the Designer Series Paper, Night & Day, because I've been wanting black & white patterned paper. It can be used for many different occasions and for projects other than Halloween. I've also had clear buttons for almost two years and think I used one once! After looking at the card I felt it needed just one more thing. A clear button perhaps? : P

Stamps: Holiday Best (Hostess Level
Ink: Black Craft
Paper: Night & Day Specialty Paper, Whisper White cardstock
Accessories: 1/4" Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Black Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Clear Button, Pop-Up Glue Dot, Wide Oval Punch, 1" Circle Punch

The More Pumpkins The Merrier!

I had a whole post for this card and its gone! Ugh! What can I say - I love this card - love this set (from a great current hostess set). I don't usually invest in Halloween stamps because its such a fleeting holiday and not one that I'm big on. I was really glad to see this in the set. In fact it can be used for Autum themes too, right? Here are the details: stamped in Black Stazon ink, used the Versamarker on the pumpkins and then sponged Stampin' Up! Pastels (chalks) to color them. Then added some Crystal Effects and dropped on a pair of googley eyes. We made this at our monthly stamp club and it was a lot of fun. Here are all the supplies used:
Stamps: The More The Merrier (Hostess Level 3)
Ink: Black Stazon, Versamarker
Paper: Naturals Ivory, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie & Textured Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Pastels, Crystal Effects, Paper Piercing Tool, Scallop Edge Punch, Chocolate Chip Striped Grosgrain Ribbon, Twine, Googley Eyes


I have to admit I wasn't a big fan of the new In Colors until now. I'm liking the Crushed Curry more after using it for this Fall-themed card. I love the Designer Series Paper, Autumn Meadows, a ton too. It has turquoise in it which is different but looks so pretty. I also used the Color Spritzer Tool for the first time ever which is so fun. Spritzing the Naturals White card stock with the different colors in the Autumn Meadows paper helped create a custom look. I just wish Fall would stick around longer than it does!

Stamps: Falling Leaves & Sanded Background Stamp
Ink: Crushed Curry, Dusty Durango, Soft Suede, Taken With Teal
Paper: Autumn Meadows DSP, Crushed Curry & Naturals White
Accessories: 1 1/4 " Square Punch, Modern Label Punch, Eyelets, Color Spritzing Tool
