What is a Hybrid Embossing Folder?

Embossing Folders give you a fast way to add texture and depth to your card, and the process is so easy!

Simply put your paper inside the folder and run it through your Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Embossing is relatively inexpensive and adds an extra element of tactile interest to your cards for extra interest!

The new Art in Bloom Hybrid embossing folder has a hybrid design that combines two steps into one, which takes embossing folders to a whole new level. You see, the co-ordinating dies actually fit inside the embossing folder so it can cut and emboss at the same time! You literally fit the three flower dies inside the embossing folder as you put it through your emboss and cut machine, and Boom! You have an embossed panel with die cuts.

Here’s what the bundle looks like:

Here’s another great sample from Stampin’ Up!

And finally, a beautiful sample created by an Artisan Designer at Stampin’ Up!

Beautiful New Artistic Products from Stampin’ Up!

I finally got a chance to try out the beautiful products from the Expressions in Inks Suite Collection. Oooooooo la la! These papers! These stamps! I just love everything about this suite. Here’s my first card:

I got my inspiration from a post by Mary Deatherage from Stamps-n-Lingers. The measurements include:

Pale Papaya Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 7 5/8″ (card base, scored and folded at 4 1/4″)

Evening Evergreen Cardstock:  3 1/8″ x 5 1/4″ (mat for card front); 5 1/4 X 3/4″ for front side panel.

Basic White Cardstock: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ (inner card panel)

Expression in Ink Specialty DSP: 3″ x 5 1/8″ (card front); 5 1/8″ by 5/8″ for side panel

These Designer Series Papers should be totally in the spotlight. The gold foil accents on the paper, added to the rich beautiful colors make these papers my favorites from the new catalog!

Can you see the gold foil elements? YUM!!

Once you have all the pieces cut, the card is easy to put together. I then added a diecut from the Scalloped Contours dies and stamped the sentiment from the bundle stamp set. LOVE it!

Have you noticed the brand new EXPRESSIONS IN INK EPHEMERA PACK? This embellishment pack is found in the same bundle, and I love the gold foil accents and beautiful sparkly sequins. I used these embellishments to finish off my card!

The gold baker’s thread is retired, but I used a little to add even more ‘bling.’ I hope you love this card, and this bundle as much as I do! All the products used in this project are found below — just click to start shopping!

Creativity Made Easy with Kits Collection from Stampin’ Up!

I’m excited to share with you a new line of creative products called the Kits Collection by Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Up! has taken the guesswork out of creativity and done the hard parts, and you get to do the fun stuff: craft! Each kit is all-inclusive and includes the predesigned projects, preprinted pieces, and even the adhesives you need to complete the projects.

There’s a wide variety of kits for all different occasions, and new kits are being added regularly. You can shop the current selection at www.stampinup.com/kits. But hurry! Kits are available only while supplies last! 

This kit is the Notes Of Cheer Card Kit and it’s available while supplies last.  So if you love it, order soon!

This kit creates nine cards (six A2 cards and three butterfly shaped cards) with decorated coordinating envelopes and it’s super fast to put together!  I had this done in well under 30 minutes.

The Kit Collection kits all arrive packaged in an awesome box so that the contents are protected.  The box gives you a great way to store your completed cards in until you’re ready to send them!

The card kits are neatly packaged inside the box and ready to be put together!  The kit above did not include any stamping, but the kits that do have stamped images also include an Ink Spot, acrylic block and stamp set!  The kits all include the adhesives needed to put them together, so these would be great for someone new to crafting who doesn’t have a bunch of supplies or for the seasoned crafter that is short on time! Here’s the beautiful Kerchief Card Kit!

Love the colors and delicate overlay on this pretty card.  The sentiments are perfect for many occasions! And I LOVE this kit — one of my favorites with its soft colors and beautiful stamped images:

The price range for the kits is $12-$19 and they create a big bunch of awesome cards or treat packages!  You can check out all of the current kits in the Kit Collection at the bottom of this post.  New kits will be coming out as the current kits sell out, so keep an eye on the kits in the online store here!

Here are a couple of helpful videos — if you’ve never stamped before, these kits are the absolute TICKET for you to get started with papercrafting! Believe me, you will not be able to buy super beautiful cards like this for the price of the kits we offer — You know how expensive they can be in the stores. AND — you had the joy of creating them by hand, with love!
