Let’s Set Sail Simple Easel

It’s another Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop and today’s hop is all about Heat Embossing. I used the Let’s Set Sail bundle to make my project.

Let’s Set Sail

The Let’s Set Sail Bundle comes with the stamp set and coordinating Sailboat Builder Punch. The punch cuts out the sailboat and sails. It’s such a darling bundle and the punch makes it so easy to create the cute little sailboat.

Embossing the Sea

You may be wondering what I’ve embossed on this card. Actually, this is an idea I’ve had in the back of my mind for some time. My original idea was to use the Birch stamp to emboss on some of our DSP (Designer Series Paper) that didn’t have foiling to add a little pizzazz. And I still plan to try that!

But for this project, I masked off the top of a Basic White panel and used our Blending Brushes to add Balmy Blue to the panel. I then added Misty Moonlight along the bottom of the panel.

Next, I took the Birch stamp and used it to stamp with VersaMark over the still masked panel. I removed the mask and embossed with silver embossing powder. This panel was then cut using a die from the Scalloped Contours Die set.

Putting it all together

This panel was added to a slightly larger Real Red panel, and then adhered with Dimensionals to a Misty Moonlight panel that has White Faux Linen ribbon across one corner. Next, the Misty Moonlight layer was adhered to a panel the same size as my card front.

Simple Easel

It’s so easy to make a simple easel card! For this one, I simply scored the front of my Balmy Blue card base horizontally across the center, then adhered the layered panel (same size as my card front) ONLY to the bottom half of the card front. When you open and fold on the scored line, the card will become an easel.

The Basic White card “stop” (the piece that holds the card open) was stamped with Misty Moonlight and cut with the smallest die from the Scalloped Contours Die set. It was attached with Dimensionals to the card base, and birds were added with Misty Moonlight ink.

Before assembling the card, I stamped and punched the sailboat using Soft Suede and Real Red inks on Basic White, stamped the shadow under the boat with Balmy Blue, and added Misty Moonlight birds. The boat is glued to the card, and the sails are attached with Dimensionals for depth.

Finally, I added silver epoxy dots from the Silver and Clear Epoxy Essentials embellishment pack.

  1. That is such a clever idea Jeanne. The silver on the water is beautiful and I love the added texture that is achieved. The card is perfect for anyone who loves the ocean.
