The Late Night Stampers Quick and Easy card focus this week is on brads and eyelets. I think a large grommet counts, too! This card went together in about 10 minutes. I recently held a Big Shot Basics and Beyond class at my house and one of the things I taught my customers was how to use ink on your SU Impressions Folders to achieve the kind of look that you see above.
In this case, I used the Impressions Folder called Petals-A-Plenty from our Holiday Mini catalog. This folder is still available to order as I believe SU will be carrying it over into the new catalog. I used my brayer with Garden Green ink and rolled it over one of the inside panels of the Impressions Folder. When it was completely covered, I slipped my panel of So Saffron card stock into the folder and closed it up carefully before running it through the Big Shot Machine. Then, just like magic, your entire background is green while the flowers and dots pop up in So Saffron! I take so much joy from the little things like that!
The large grommet is carefully pushed through the impressed panel. I used a bone folder to clamp the prongs down. The next step is to adhere the Basic Black panel and wrap and tie your ribbon. Now, onto the Punched Medallion! The bottom punch is the Wide Oval Punch followed by the Round Tab Punch both of which use Basic Black card stock. The next layer is a circle of Garden Green punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. I stamped the sentiment (Teeny Tiny Wishes) onto a scrap of So Saffron card stock with Basic Black ink and punched it out using the Modern Label Punch. To get the lovely Basic Black layer behind, I used the Punch Windows Magnetic Movers and Shapers Die. You can use these Punch Windows with the Curly Label Die . . . or do as I do and short cut it with the cutting plates used in conjunction with the Impressions Pad. See this post HERE. After inserting two accent brads into my sentiment panel, I adhered it to my medallion shape with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a raised effect.
