Fine Art Gallery: Step It Up Cards

Yesterday's Facebook Live did not go the way I had planned. When I started making my cards for demonstrating on my "Tuesdays At Two" Facebook Live I had one idea in mind. When I got to the third sample card, well it changed my mind entirely to a different card.

I knew I wanted to use the "Fine Art Gallery" bundle. I think the flowers are simply gorgeous and look like something from a painting, as the name implies. The video from yesterday is below, if it doesn't show up on your mobile device, click here.

This is the card I made during the video. I CASE'd it from Julie Gilson and added my own little twist to it using negative and positive pieces from the die cut on the sentiment.

In the video I show how you can step up your cards, a simple card for the beginners. This card is simply stamping and a few cuts with your paper cutter. The sentiment is simply stamped right on the card base. A few epoxy dots are added to dress it up a bit.

This second card is a step up from that for the casual stamper. It has an embossed background layer, using the "Painted Textures" 3D embossing folder. I also punched a background layer for the sentiment and popped it up with a couple Dimensionals. Both of the layers for the flower are scored around the edges with the Stampin' Up!© Paper trimmer.

This third card, for the more Avid stamper, has two embossed layers, die cut images and a bit of Baker's Twine as well as a die cut sentiment.

I also showed another card using the Painted Textures 3D embossing folder and some Pumpkin Pie ink. This card was CASE'd from Patty Dolan. I used a different die cut for the sentiment, from the Scalloped Contours die set. I was totally surprised when I found that it leaves little cut marks around the edge of the die, so you could actually slip something behind it. I couldn't think of anything so I left it as is.

These last two card were actually my original ideas on how to use the negative parts of a die cut as well as the positive die cuts from the "Just Wanted To Say" die from the Floral Gallery dies. I love how they both turned out. I used the coordinating "Fine Are Floral" DSP.
