SAVI Sunday 61 - Gold & Rose Gold Specialty Paper

SAVI Sunday 61:  Gold and Rose Gold 6x6 Metallic Specialty Paper

Hello there!  I am so excited to share todays video and projects which feature the New Metallic Specialty paper that is just gorgeous.  This paper will not disappoint in its quality and shimmer and sheen.  So glad I bought several packs...LOL! 

Because the metallic paper is so beautiful, you really do not need to add too many additional elements especially with the Blossoms in Bloom Bundle.  Let's take a look:

Savi Sunday 60 - Embossing with Masks

SAVI Sunday (Stamping & Various Inspirations) 60:  Embossing With Masks

Today I have a great way for you to use our Basic Pattern Decorative Masks.  Normally, crafters think of masks just for sponging color through onto cardstock to have the pattern show through, but this is a fun way to expand your card making. 

Let's take a look at today's project:

SAVI Sunday 57 - Double Masking

This weeks Savi Sunday VIDEO shows you two easy masking cards, but it is really my 2nd card project below that is the main focus - Double Masking. 

I want to show you what it looks like when you stamp an image, and directly apply ink right over that image.  Its pretty in itself, but wait to you see the Double Masked card. 

PicsArt_05-09-06.05.09

Both cards feature the Elegantly Said Stamp Set, available in a product suite called Simply Elegant

The above card is done in Fresh Freesia and below is Soft Succulent.  

My 2nd project below, notice how the floral image looks like it is sitting on top of the sponged mask background.  But I actually sponged the background First!

My Mystery Stamping Results!

Welcome!  This is my SAVI Sunday 56:  Mystery Stamping Results.  

What is Mystery Stamping?  It is when someone gives you all the cut dimensions for all your card stock and designer series paper that you will need to make a card.  Also, any punches and stamps, ink and accessories that you should include. 

You can watch my SAVI Sunday 56 Video HERE to see how this card came together. 

I feature the NEW Hand-Penned Suite (#155503) that is releasing on May 4, 2021 with the New 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  

PicsArt_05-02-10.46.42

I chose Highland Heather and Soft Sea Foam Card stock and ink colors.

So here are the instructions that I received and had to prepare for our Live Zoom Team Meeting and Mystery stamping:

Tip: the colors you choose should all coordinate and work well together
 
1. Cut ONE - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 ANY color cardstock
 
2. Cut ONE - 4 X 5 1/4 - Any Color cardstock that coordinates with the one above 
 
3. Cut TWO pieces 3 3/4 x 1 1/8 Designer Series Paper ( to coordinate)
 
4. Cut ONE - 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 piece of cs same color as #1 above^ 
 
5. Score this piece on one of the short ends at 4 1/8"
 
6. Cut ONE- 4 x 2 1/4” basic white cardstock
 
7. Punch ONE oval, from basic white cs with the Double Oval Punch or a piece of basic white cut at 1” x 2” to stamp your greeting on.
 
8. ONE Stamp (bold or outline image) that will fit in the 4 x 2 1/4 basic white piece above (#6) ^
 
9. ONE sentiment that will fit into a 1x 2" long space in #7 above^
 
10. ONE Black Stamp Pad
 
11. Any other ink you will need for the image that you chose in #8 above ^. If you choose an outline image that needs to be colored, then add markers, blends or any coloring tools you desire. If you chose a bold stamp image, then choose a coordinating ink pad color.
 
12. ONE embellishment 
 
13. Dimensionals
 
14. Adhesive such as Stampin Seal or Multi Purpose glue. 
 
 Here are some tips
 
*Choose your Stamp image that will fit in #6, first. 
  • Decide what stamp pads you will need and or markers/blends if you chose an outline image. Decide on ink pad color if image is bold
  • Choose a sentiment that will fit in a 1 x 2 long space. You will be stamping the sentiment in black.
  • Choose DSP and Card Stock that will coordinate with your focal point.
  • Don’t stress over this! Its a super fun activity and we will all have a different take on the finished product.
  • Get ready to learn a creative way to connect and be inspired!
Here is how my card card turned out during our Live Zoom Team meeting!  I used the New In Colors of Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent.
