Team Scrimpy Blog Hop - July 2020 - Many Layered Blossom Dies

Team Scrimpy Blog Hop
July 2020
Using Many Layered Blossom Dies

How vivid and bright is this new in-colour Magenta Madness
it is stunning and im not a pink girl and this is PINK with bells and whistles lol
I adore it x

with this new cardstock I wanted to show it off properly
and this die set makes the best of your cardstock.

kept this card very simple to showcase the card and die without covering it with lots of stamps and stuff. 
So first up I used the the Ornate Borders Die and then trimmed down my front panel of my card base and added the ornate border die cut using liquid glue
I then adhered the Magenta Madness 1/4" Ribbon 
I due cut the layers the bolder layer with Magenta Madness and the finer layer with thick Whisper White. I had added adhesive sheets to the reverse of the cardstock prior to cutting so it would be easy to stick together. I then wanted to make the dies stand out a little more, I used the largest die (the bolder one) amd traced around it in pencil on to thick whisper white and then fussy cut it out and stuck both top layers to this just perfect. I then used liquid glue to adhere the piece to my card front.
I then Stamped the sentiment from Fancy Phrases in Magenta Madness on to a scrap of whsiper white cardstock and trimmed it down and then added dimensionals to pop it up, I used a scrap of the ribbon behind it also just for a wee extra something.

I used a sakura Clear stardust pen in the flower centers so add a wee bit of sparkle.

its gorgeous and im so pleased how it turned out.

Stampin Up With Karamia - GDP 246 - Ornate Garden DSP

Showcasing the STUNNING Ornate Garden DSP 
to play along with the Global Design Team Challenge #GDP246

I used the cardstock colours from the DSP I dont have bumblebee yet its onroute as I type (impatiently I may add) 
I used my Layering Circle Dies and opened my scrap drawers and made use of all my scraps from the DSP and the co-ordinating cards stock, after cutting them I layered them up no rhyme or reason just making sure the patterns and colours werent too close together.
the Sentiment CONGRATS was from a retired set but I wanted a word bold enough to stand out I cut it out in both Early Espresso and Gold Foil Paper and layered them up slightly off setting so that the layer stood out, I then heat embossed on a scrap of Early Espresso the sentiment "you're amazing" from Ornate Thanks 
it just means the card could be used to say hi to some of my amazing friends. 
which gives it more versatility.
to add the rhinestones I coloured them using my Stampin Blend Markers
the colours I used to "match" the DSP were
Dark Old Olive
Dark Mint Macaron
Dark Cajun Craze ( to represent Terracota Tile)
Dark Daffodil Delight ( to represent Bumblebee)
and Dark Soft Suede ( to represent Early Espresso)
This makes it super simple to use your rhinestones on any project.

This card makes it super easy to use up your scraps amd make a lot on one sitting as they are so simple to just pull out a pill of scrap card and dsp and just run them through your bigshot.

Stamping Up With Karamia - Ornate Garden - Team Scrimpy June Blog Hop

Its our June Team Scrimpy's Blog Hop

I chose to showcase the beautiful Ornate Garden
I have used the DSP, The Stamp and Die to creat this Regal and Elegant Card that is suitable for almost any occasion.

I used a Whisper White Card Base A6 
I then chopped down my ornate garden DSP to 14.2cm x 10cm
using the Rose Border Die I ran it through my die cutter to give me the gorgeous cut out
I then added a strip of Gold Foil to the back of it (it was a scrap) but about 4cm x 14.2cm
I then stuck them to my card base using Liquid Glue
I grabbed a scrap of Mint Macarom from my scrap drawer

I have a number of these drawers beside me they are fantastic and I have a scrap drawer for each colour family so it is easy to go there before cutting down a full sheet.
I got them from Ebay you can buy them in 2,3,4,6 drawer sets
I have a few various ones and will be purchasing more very soon as they are great for so many things.

Anyway back to my card.

I used the Thank you Stamp but I have chopped it down to two words so I can get more use from it and also means I can stamp them together top and bottom rather than side by side.
I stamped on to my mint macaron scrap using versamark ink pad
and added our gold embossing powder then heat it up to melt the powder giving you a gorgeous sentiment.
I added the gold foil card behind my sentiment and trimmed it leaving a 1/8" border.

Then that was popped up on dimensionals to give a little height and we are done.

Regal & Elegant and Easy 

Hope you enjoyed this and please do have go.
