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.

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.

Gilded Autumn Thank You Card

Featuring a Gilded Autumn thank you card with video.

Gilded Autumn Thank You Card

For the last couple of weeks, I’ve been playing with all of the products in Stampin’ Up!’s Gilded Autumn Suite. I’m especially in love with the Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper. Talk about gorgeous! Talk about hoarding material! The metallic highlights in select sheets make this 12 x 12 paper shine.

Gilded Autumn Thank You Card

Today’s card features just one of the lovely sheets of this Designer Series Paper. Notice that the patterned paper covers the entire front of the card. Be sure to watch the video below for a tip on getting this panel on straight. Normally, I’ll put layers on the card front; they’re easier to line up and get straight. But this quick tip makes it so easy!

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Today, I’m showing you 5 Boho Indigo Card Samples.

5 Boho Indigo Card Samples

Look on page 9 of Stampin’ Up!’s 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. It features a gorgeous medley of products called Boho Indigo. I love Night of Navy (and now Misty Moonlight, too). The 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper calls to me. (In fact, I’ve already ordered a refill.)

BOHO INDIGO PRODUCT MEDLEY (ENGLISH)

Boho Indigo Product Medley

The medley sells for $70 and includes a host of really fun elements:

  • An 11-piece photopolymer stamp set with four sentiments: Such Happy News, Thank You, A Bunch of Birthday Love to You, and Sorry You’re Feeling Blue.
  • The 12-piece Boho Indigo Dies.
  • 48 sheets of 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper (8 each of 6 double-sided designs).
  • Very Vanilla 6 x 6 dry embossed sheets (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Die cuts with gold foil accents (2 each of 3 designs).
  • Night of Navy 1/2 inch Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon (10 yards).
  • Very Vanilla/gold 1/4 inch pleated ribbon (10 yards).
  • Paper flowers (20 each in 2 sizes).

Get a refill kit (which includes the designer series paper, the dry embossed sheets, six sheets of die cuts, and 40 flowers) for $23.

You will need Night of Navy and/or Misty Moonlight ink, card stock (Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight and/or Very Vanilla or Whisper White) and your choice of adhesives to get started.

Other Samples

Once I started creating, the ideas just kept flowing. I’m sharing just 5 Boho Indigo card samples today. At first, I tried to create with what came in the medley. That can be done easily. But with a table full of scraps, I quickly added other elements to stretch this medley even further. Some of the items I pulled in include Stampin’ Up!’s Gold Foil, additional die cuts, Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack, a couple of punches, and additional sentiments.

Rooted in Nature Thank You Card

Showcasing a masculine card using Stampin’ Up!’s Rooted in Nature stamp set and Nature’s Roots Dies.

Rooted in Nature Thank You Card

Last Saturday, I participated in Team Stamps It’s monthly blog hop. This month, we featured cards centering on the men in our lives and Father’s Day. I made two cards, and I couldn’t decide which one to share. See Saturday’s card (using the brand-new World of Good Suite) here.

When I designed this card, I liked the idea of using the Woodland Embossing Folder to make a background with three different colors: Garden Green, Crumb Cake, and Cherry Cobbler.

The Rooted in Nature stamp set offers a host of images perfecting for creating masculine-themed cards. I’m excited to say this stamp set and its coordinating dies appear in Stampin’ Up!’s new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Rooted in Nature Thank You CardThe coordinating Nature’s Roots Dies coordinate with the above stamp set. Through June 2 or while supplies last, these dies are listed on sale for $15.60. That’s a deal!

Rooted in Nature Thank You Card

A couple of notes about this card. I stamped the:

  • stump image with Early Espresso ink on Very Vanilla card stock and fussy cut with snips;
  • leaf image onto Vellum Card Stock with Garden Green ink three times without reinking. (That’s called third generation stamping.) Step away and let the ink dry before die cutting.

See the photo below for how that looks on Vellum. I then used a die cutting machine and the coordinating dies to get the images.
