I love many things about Stampin’ Up! products. That includes its complementary products like stamp sets with coordinating punches. (Stampin’ Up!’s awesome color coordination also rates at the top of my list!)

This stamp set, Perfectly Plaid, pairs with the Pine Tree Punch. It makes creating handmade greeting cards quick and easy.

Find this Perfectly Plaid stamp set on page 60 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. Look for the Pine Tree Punch on page 166.

Boho Indigo Scraps and Embossing

I love Stampin’ Up!’s Boho Indigo Product Medley. Find it on page 9 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. The Night of Navy and Midnight Muse colors call to me! I’ve used the medley in a ton of card projects. Click on the links below to look at past posts, samples, and projects.

Five Birthday Card Samples

After all of that creating, I have a lot of scraps and small pieces. The technique I show today isn’t new. I resurrected it for this beautiful designer series paper and its scraps!

  • Using Stampin’ Up!’s 1 1/2-inch circle punch, punch a variety of different designs from both sides of the patterned paper
  • Arrange the circles onto a a piece of Very Vanilla card stock or Midnight Muse card stock.
  • Glue the circles down with multipurpose glue.It’s OK if some of them go off the edge of the base.
  • Let it dry.
  • Run the whole piece through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss machine with your choice of embossing folders. I used Stampin’ Up!’s Tin Tile and Dainty Diamonds.
  • Trim the edges if any of the circles overlap.
  • Layer onto a coordinating card stock and then a card base.
  • Add a sentiment of your choice.
  • You could dress up with ribbon or other embellishments.

Be sure to watch the video below to see me work through this card. I hope you love this technique. Changing the embossing folders gives your cards a different look. Think of all of the possibilities with all of Stampin’ Up!’s different designer series papers. I’m sure you have a pile of scraps that would worth for this.
