Country Floral Embossing Folder with the Painted Seasons DSP

Every now and then, Stampin' Up! will bring out a tool that lifts your crafting to a new level of beauty! They have certainly done that with their latest releases of Sale-A-Bration Rewards. In the second release they brought us the Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder and it is the most exquisite embossing folder I've seen for a long time, even over the Lace or the Ruffled or the Tufted folders. What's even better is that you can earn it for free with a $60 order!

I've used it and paired it with the lovely Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper that you can also earn with a $60 order in the third release of Sale-A-Bration Rewards, in a sample card that will be one of the projects for my Technique Night classes. The technique that we're using with this card is using a brayer with an embossing folder.

  • I started with a base of Balmy Blue and added a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of the Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper with the blue and green succulent plants.
  • I took the Country Floral Dynamic Embossing Folder,  and used a brayer to coat the debossed side of the folder with Pool Party ink. I then spritzed my Whisper White paper lightly with water and inserted in the folder and ran it through the Big Shot. This gave me a background of Pool Party ink. I then sponged the raised sections of the embossed cardstock with Lemon Lime Twist and Grapefruit Grove to get the look you see in the photo.
  • This panel was mounted on a backing of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and adhered to the card front. The sentiment is from Home to Roost, another SAB Reward, and is stamped on a Whisper White flagged strip in Balmy Blue. The Grapefruit Grove DSP strip underneath is just a small piece of the reverse side of same DSP pattern as the background panel.
  • The little sprigs behind the the sentiment are die cut with the Butterfly Beauty Thinlit Dies, from Soft Sea Foam card stock.
  • I tied a bow from some Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and added it with a Glue Dot to the sentiment panel.

Wanted: New Papercraft Cat Team Members

I'm looking for some additional people to offer the incredible Starter Kit deal to during Sale-A-Bration! Did you know that Sale-A-Bration was the best time to purchase the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit! You get an additional $60 worth of free current products! You see, normally you get $165 worth of any current products of your choice, free shipping, for only $135 when you purchase the Starter Kit. But during Sale-A-Bration, you get $225 worth of products for only $135. And if you want to add on an extra $40, you can also get the exclusive Craft & Carry Tote!

I just used it to carry all my basic supplies minus paper, ink and stamps to my craft retreat and it was so handy! So many pockets and compartments!
