  • Real Red, Very Vanilla and Basic Black make a classic statement.
  • Sentiment is from Blessings from Heaven stamp set.
  • Houndstooth Embossing Folder decorates the Real Red card stock base.
  • Sponging with Crumb Cake Classic Ink around the edges of the Very Vanilla card stock gives this card a little aging.

Heat Embossing with Reason to Smile

Here's another card in my series of Reason to Smile cards.  Once you see all the samples, you're for sure gonna want to purchase this beautiful stamp set!

  • Be sure to run your Embossing Buddy of the Night of Navy card stock so that bits of white embossing powder don't stick where they're not supposed to.
  • Flowers are stamped with VersaMark Pad then White Embossing Powder sprinkled on and heat set using the new Heat Tool!
  • Sentiment is from Petite Pairs stamp set – inside card says "begin with you!".
  • I used the Large Oval Punch to punch out the sentiment and then adhered with Dimensionals.
  • Rich Razzleberry card stock is run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
  • A card stock layer of Lucky Limeade adds a needed brightness with the two darker colors.
  • Love, love, love our new 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, here in Night of Navy!

Blessings and Reason to Smile

Imagine getting a full set of stamps for just $5!  That's what the "Reason to Smile" promotion is all about.  With your purchase of at least $50 in any Stampin' Up! products, Reason To Smile stamp set can be yours in either clear or wood for just $5!  I've made a few sample cards with this wonderful set and will be showing them off in this and in upcoming posts.

  • The Lucky Limeade card stock background gets spiffed up with the new Chevron Embossing Folder and the Big Shot.
  • Next comes a pretty piece of Melon Mambo Polka Dot Ribbon.
  • Use Stampin' Write Markers directly to the rubber stamp to color in the two images on the flower stamp.
  • Sentiment comes from Blessings from Heaven stamp set.  Image is cut out using Apothecary Accents Framelit.
  • Notice the paper piercing around the sentiment?  A combination of nifty new tools were used – Paper-Piercing Tool, Stampin' Pierce Mat and the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack.  Just follow the holes on the template!
  • Black button from the Neutrals Designer Button pack adds a nice accent; I used White Baker's Twine through the center to finish it off.
