Happy Birthday Gorgeous Embossed Card - July Big Shot Class

Hello Stampers!  Here is one of the projects we will be making at my Big Shot Class this month featuring the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set and the coordinating Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  In this class I will demonstrate how to use the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die to "emboss" instead of die-cutting.  It is a cool technique! 

How about this pretty Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper?  To make my card, I picked Emerald Envy, Lemon Lime Twist and Night of Navy from the DSP.  I love this color combination!  So pretty!!!

To give some color to this embossed piece, I die cut a scrap piece of the Dazzling Diamond Glimmer Paper with two small star dies.  And then I colored them using my Aqua Painter and Lemon Lime Twist Ink Pad.  You can try this technique with any of your favorite Stampin' Up! colors!!!  Love it!

Blooms & Wishes 4th of July Scrapbook Pages

 Hello everyone!  Today's project is a double 12" x 12" layout of fun 4th of July pages we made in my Scrapbook Club this month.  Can you believe this is my very first 4th of July scrapbook that I had in my class?  I have been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for about 8 years and my monthly Scrapbook Club has been going on just about that long too.  Oh yes, I did hear some of my longtime scrapbookers mentioned that too:-) 

I had so much fun designing these pages!  I used two stamps from the Blooms & Wishes Stamp Set to create a fun background of fireworks in Real Red and Night of Navy. 

These balloons are from the Birthday Banners Stamp Set and are punched out with the Balloon Bouquet Punch.  I used the Tabs for Everything Stamp Set to create the striped star and then die cut the image with the star framelits from the Wood Crate Framelits.  I die cut a piece of Silver Foil Paper with the "stem" die from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits to arrange my balloons and stars.  I added a pretty bow from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to finish it up.  Really cute!!!

I just realized that it's hard to see the embossed square pieces (one red, one blue and two whites) in this photo.  Sorry.... The white pieces are embossed with the new Oh My Stars Embossing Folder and the blue piece is embossed with the new Polka Dot Basics.  The red pieces is embossed with the Stripes Folder (retired).
