I used the Papillon Potpourri and Banner Blast stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! to create my card share for today. I made this card for the Stamping & Blogging SB40 Sketch Challenge this week. Be sure to check out what the other Design Team Members made with this sketch too, links to their blogs are below.
I started by adhering a panel of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum to a panel of Gold Foil Sheets, by using a little bit of SNAIL under each of the gold dots. I stamped the image from the Banner Blast stamp set (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 28) in VersaMark Ink on a Melon Mambo panel, sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. Then I punched the banner out with the Banner Punch (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 28).
I punched a strip of the Gold Foil Sheets with Hexagon Punch, then embossed it with the Arrows Embossing Folder. I layered the two banner strips together and adhered them to the vellum panel with SNAIL. Next, I embossed two panels of Melon Mambo card stock with the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder (Sale-a-bration item available Jan 28), adhered them to panels of Gold Foil Sheets, then to the vellum panel with SNAIL.
I stamped the butterfly images from the Papillon Potpourri stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in VersaMark Ink on a panel of the Gold Foil Sheets, sprinkled them with Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed them. **Just a note when stamping on the Foil Sheets, it’s helpful to use the Stamp-a-ma-jig even if you don’t need it to keep you stamp in place when you press down. I had trouble with the stamp sliding and smearing the image until I pulled out my Stamp-a-ma-jig. Then I punched the images out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and adhered them to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sentiment from the A Dozen Thoughts stamp set (wood mount and clear mount) in VersaMark Ink on the vellum panel. I sprinkled it with Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss Powder and heat embossed it. ***A quick note about heat embossing with the Fancy Foil Designer Vellum: Be quick with your Heat Tool over the foil pieces, they melt a little if you heat them too much…ask me how I know!!
I tied pieces of the Gold Baker’s Twine through the two lager Vintage Faceted Buttons (on sale through Jan 27 for 25% off) and adhered them to the card front with Glue Dots. For the smallest button, I tied a knot with the Gold Baker’s Twine and rolled up a Glue Dot to adhere it to the button top. The holes in that button are too small for the thicker twines. Then I adhered the final button to the card front with a Glue Dot and the whole panel to a Melon Mambo card base to complete it.
I used some leftover strips of the Gold Foil Sheets (I’d hate for any little bit to go to waste!!) under a Melon Mambo Elegant Butterfly Punch that I’d stamped and embossed with Gold Stampin’ Embossing Powder to complete the inside of the card.
