Gently Falling Two-Step Thank You Card

Two-step stamping has been around forever (thanks to always fabulous Stampin’ Up! stamp sets), but it is not forefront and center these days.  I’m not sure why – as it is a perfect technique when you don’t want to take the time to color in your fine-lined stamp images.

Here’s a pretty but simple two-step stamped card with Gently Falling.  I added some distressing to the embossed folder by taking my inkpad and smooshing over the top of the embossed card stock.

Gently Falling-woodgrain embossed

Color combination is Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango, and Early Espresso…love it!

Mad About Mosaic Madness

Unless you've lived under a rock, you have probably seen many, many stampers showcase examples using the new Mosaic Madness stamp set.  Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over are so jazzed over this stamp set and the accessories that go with it.  Here is one of the first cards I made with it:

Mosaic Madness-Unpopped Embossing

The Crisp Canteloupe and Baked Brown Sugar color combination is so pretty.  I used the unpopped embossing technique on this card – emboss with an embossing folder like normal, swipe an inkpad over the top of it, and then put the embossed piece ON TOP of the embossing folder and run it through the Big Shot again.  This will unpop the embossed sections.  Super cool!
