Another Reason to Smile and Stampin’ Up! 2012 Holiday Catalog Sneak Peek! Can you look at a daisy and help but smile? Might be one of the reasons for the name of the July exclusive stamp set.
Want another reason to smile? I have a little sneak peek from the Stampin’ Up! 2012 Holiday Catalog. The embossing was made with the soon-to-be-released Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder and the Sizzix Big Shot Die-Cut Machine. Will this be a texture you must add to your collection?
On this hand made thinking of you card, the de-bossed side is what you see. A light sponging of Certainly Celery Classic Stampin’ Pad was used on the embossed part. The center was left un-embossed with one of my Embossing Folder Chipboard Templates.
Being able to leave an area un-embossed allows you to stamp right onto the same piece of card stock. Pretty cool. Best of all, you do not have to alter your embossing folders! Use them as designed or one of my embossing templates in a variety of shapes to leave an embossed border.
In this picture we have a closer view of one of the stamps from the Made for You stamp set. Isn’t it a pretty font?
Have I mentioned the colors of this Reason to Smile card are the new 2012-2014 In Color Primrose Petals and Certainly Celery. The ribbon is also made with the new In Color Primrose Petals 3/8″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon. I wish you could touch it and feel how luxurious it feels. Soft yet easy to tie into a bow.
And then one of my favorite embellishments – the double embossed rectangle border around the stamped Reason to Smile daisy. It is easy to adds the finishing touch with the Simply Scored Scoring Tool.
