Story of Elegance

Happy Tuesday!   I’m happy that you stopped by to see today’s project.

Today I am highlighting a fantastic new product in our 2021-2022 Annual Catalog; the Bloom Hybrid embossing folder which includes the  Bloom die set.

This is my first Hybrid embossing folder and I was delighted to add it to my inventory.  A Hybrid Embossing folder is designed to both emboss and cut when used with a coordinating die.

Here’s a picture of the Bloom Hybrid embossing folder along with coordinating die from the Bloom die set.  This wonderful pair is the highlight of today’s card.

A Bloom Birthday

There’s so much to love about these products.  With them in one pass you get three beautifully die cut and embossed flowers. Talk about easy and elegant.  WOW!Close up of a birthday card made with Stampin' Up! products

A Closer LookLook at the detail in this card.  It’s so very pretty and so very easy to do.  With the fun summer days ahead, you can still create beautiful cards to share with friends, family, anyone!

Elegance Made Easy

Here’s another shining example of the unmatched coordination of the Stampin’ Up! line of products.  From color to design, all of the thought that goes into our products mean that you can rest easy knowing that you are using high quality, professionally designed products.  Creating has never been easier!

To create this card,  cut a 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ panel of Silver Foil and adhere it to a card base made with Thick Basic White card stock.  Cut a  4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of Pale Papaya card stock and emboss using the Bloom Hybrid embossing folder.  Add the panel to the Silver foil layer.

Next, add the large flower die from the Bloom die set to the Bloom Hybrid embossing folder and die cut three flowers using Basic White card stock.   Brush Wink of Stella on one of the die cut flowers to accent.   Place  a piece of Silver Metallic Edge ribbon behind the accented flower and adhere to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Create the sentiment panel using the Double Oval Punch.   Punch the scalloped layer in Silver Foil, and the smaller over in Basic White.  Stamp the sentiment of your choice in Pale Papaya ink.  I used a sentiment from the Elegantly Said stamp set.  Assemble and add to the card.

To finish the project emboss the envelope flap to match and you are done.  Easy. Elegant. Quick.  Yes to all three!
