Celebrations Duo – Celebrate

My order with the new product from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration Catalog arrived yesterday.  The quickest way to get out of a creative lull – new product!

I was so excited, I didn’t know where to start.  I love everything – it all!

I had seen the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folder and was so intrigued by it.  The great thing about the two folders is that it creates a negative impression of the sentiments.


For my card today I’m starting off with Sweet Sugarplum cardstock on which I took a pattern from the new (and gorgeous) Succulent Garden DSP and layered it over Whisper White cardstock.


Next I took some Whisper White and dry embossed the “Celebrate” using the Celebrations Duo TIEF.  I then took the circle image from the Happy Celebrations Stamp Set and stamped circles in Sweet Sugarplum, Smoky Slate, and Mint Macaron across the “Celebrate.”  I layered the Whisper White on some Smokey Slate cardstock.

Now I was struggling a bit to keep the ink from going into the word, so I looked up a card my upline, Amy, had made and sure enough she had a great TIP!  If you keep the cardstock after it goes through the Big Shot in the folder, it give you some umf (and yes, that’s a technical term) on which to stamp.  I had much better results doing it this way!


Lastly, I heat embossed the “Good Times” using white embossing powder, Versamark ink, and the heat tool.
