Note Cards with Stampaholic...

Hi! Recently my husband asked me to make a set of note cards for him. I thought this was a good opportunity to try my new Stampaholic by Die Cuts and More. I also put together a mini tut for anybody who is interested.

I started with a large piece of water color paper.


I cut the water color paper into 8 pieces, each approximately measuring 4 x 6 inches.


I placed two pieces on the Stampaholic and stamped two leaf images from the Hero Arts Stamp Your Own Plant set with Versamark. Since I was using the Stampaholic, I stamped the images twice. This ensured a clear impression even though the paper is slightly textured. I was also able to work very fast.


After the stamping was done I heat embossed the images with Ranger & Wow embossing powders in metallic gold, silver, platinum and copper.

I die cut the papers into smaller panels with a rectangular die. I also used a border die by Memory Box to add some stitched details around the edges.

To finish the cards, I simply embossed my card bases with three different embossing folder - two from The Next Level Embossing folders - Woven set and the Argyle folder by Darice.


The stamped and embossed panel was mounted on the card base with some foam tape. Here are all the eight cards together.


And the best part? Thanks to the Stampaholic I was able to finish all eight in one day, which considering both kids were home, is some sort of record for me!
