All in the Family wedding cake

I originally saw this card on Lori Heling's blog: I just had to stop everything and make this card, and I wanted to add a bride and groom. I thought the stick people from All in the Family would be perfect. I tried to get them to hold hands, but the groom was too tall, bummer!!! Look close to see the diamond ring on the bride's left hand. The dimensions of the cake layers are: bottom layer 2 3/4 x 1 1/2; middle layer 2 1/4 x 1 1/2; top layer 1 3/4 x 1 1/2; crimped strip 1/4" wide. (I had to shorten my layers for this card so my groom would fit on the top of the cake). I cut my layers then embossed with the Elegant Lines EF. It takes a few extra minutes to line up the EF flower in the middle of your layer, and it's well worth the extra effort.
Recipe: Stamps: All in the Family, Family Accessories Too, Word Play; Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pink Pirouette; Ink: Basic Black; Accessories: Big Shot, Elegant Lines embossing folder, trio punch, corner rounder punch, crimper, stamp-a-ma-jig, basic rhinestones, paper-piercing tool, glue dots.

Pretty Postage Embedded Embossing

This is one of the cards we are going to make at my Bloomin' in May class on May 28 and 31, 2011. The technique is called embedded embossing, and it is so easy. I saw this card
on another stampers blog and just had to case it.

To do the embedded embossing, simply punch cardstock with any punch you wish. Glue the pieces to your card front, put the card front in your Big Shot or Cuttlebug, crank it through, and there you have it, embedded embossed card.
Recipe: Stamp Set: Pretty Postage; Paper: Peach Parfait, Blushing Bride, Shimmery White cardstock; Ink: Peach Parfait; Accessories: Postage Stamp Punch, Boho Blossoms Punch, 1" square punch, Square Lattice embossing folder, Peach Parfait ribbon, dimensionals.

Shaving Cream Technique with Embossing

I enjoy making very unique backgrounds with reinkers and shaving cream, and I thought I'd go one step further and emboss a set of trees. The results are stunning, and I'm truly sorry, my camera does not pick up the details very well.
Recipe: Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Warm Words (retired); Paper: Rich Razzleberry, Almost Amethyst, Basic Black, Glossy White; Ink: Basic Black, Versamark, Night of Navy and Elegant Eggplant reinkers; Accessories: Shaving Cream, Black embossing powder, heat tool

Shaving Cream Technique

We will make this card using the shaving cream technique at my next class at Alamance Community College on May 11, 2011. Each background made with shaving cream and reinkers always turns out different, depending on the amount of ink and the amount of mixing you do. It's fun to try.
Put a little shaving cream (any brand, doesn't matter) on a styrofoam plate, wax paper, or a piece of tin foil.
Add a couple of drops of ink from two or three colors of reinkers.
Stir just a little bit with a wooden stick or plastic knife or spoon. Don't over-stir because the colors become muddy.
Put your cardstock face down in the mixture. (I found glossy cardstock works better than smooth cardstock, just my preference).
Remove cardstock from mixture. In a circular motion wipe off excess shaving cream with a paper towel.
Let air dry, or to speed up drying time, use a heat tool.
Complete your card. It's that easy.
Recipe: Stamps: Thoughts and Prayers; Paper: Always Artichoke, Pacific Point, Whisper White Glossy and Whisper White CS; Ink: Always Artichoke; Accessories: Itty Bitty Shaper Punch, Corner Rounder punch, Pearls, Whisper White Organza Ribbon.
