After the last few winter / Christmas projects I thought my next sneak peek should be a little closer on the calendar. Once again I found it really hard to stick to one new thing from the Stampin’ Up! 2019 Holiday Catalogue. So although my project uses four, I want you to concentrate on the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder.
If you’re not a Halloween person you might miss the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder on page 53 of the Holiday Catalogue. So I decided to use it for a Thanksgiving card instead.
For my background I placed a layer of Very Vanilla Card inside the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder and ran it through my embossing machine. Then to accentuate the beautiful design I carefully tapped the raised surface with the new Delicata Celestial Copper ink pad. I was careful not to press too hard so as not to get the ink in the open areas. Then I wiped the ink pad over the edges of the card giving it a slightly vintage look.
With that done I set the piece aside to dry for a few minutes as this Delicata ink takes a little longer that regular ink.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER
Knowing that the ink needed to dry made me do the “Give Thanks” sentiment next. This comes from the new Birds Of A Feather Stamp Set. I stamped it onto Thick Very Vanilla Card with Celestial Copper ink and set that aside too.
Birds Of A Feather is also where I found the cute turkey image but this time I stamped him using Tuxedo Black ink. It’s one image but I decided to stamp it a number of times, concentrating on specific parts that I could then cut out.
I stamped the whole image onto Sahara Sand Card, then the tail section onto Pumpkin Pie Card. Next I stamped the head and feet on Crushed Curry Card and the hat onto Basic Gray. I stamped the pie onto scraps of Smoky Slate and Crumb Cake, and finally the apron onto Whisper White.
Once I had my stamped pieces I cut out the sections I needed using Paper Snips. From the main Sahara Sand turkey I cut off just the tail feathers and feet. Then I kept all the Pumpkin Pie tail feathers together by cutting straight across the neck and left a little of the body attached too. To make attaching the feet easier I kept them attached to a little of the body. All the other pieces were cut out following the lines on the image. This did take a little time, but I do like the finished effect from this paper tole technique.
Before assembling the cut pieces I used a Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Write Marker from the Regals collection to colour in the centre parts of the tail feathers. Then I ‘painted’ the pie plate with a Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush giving it a slightly metallic look.
Finally using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I assembled my pieces onto the Sahara Sand turkey. Leaving ‘extra’ card attached to the feathers and feet meant I was able to fix them to the back of the body. The other pieces were simply glued on top of the corresponding stamped section on the turkey body.
Now the Celestial Copper ink was dry I cut out the sentiment using a die from the new Frosted Frames Dies. This gave it a stitched edge with a concave corner detail. Then I used liquid glue to add my assembled turkey to the sentiment layer.
For my card base I chose Thick Very Vanilla Card and used liquid glue to fix the embossed layer directly onto it. Then came my assembled sentiment, attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
To create a coordinated look, I decided to use that fun turkey image with Tuxedo Black ink. First I stamped the top part of the turkey coming in from the right side of a layer of Very Vanilla Card. Then I fixed this layer inside the card base with liquid glue.
Finally I stamped the turkey on the front of a Very Vanilla Medium Envelope coming in from the right too.
I am so pleased with how this project turned out. That turkey is so cute it was worth the effort to cut out the individual pieces. I also think the Stylish Scroll Embossing Folder creates a simply gorgeous background. I only wish I’d been able to get a better photo of the copper ink, it really does shine. Maybe next time.
