Stampin’ Up!® comes out with some very innovative products sometimes. They patented DisINKtive stamp sets where each stamp creates different opacities in a single stamp which brings depth to the image. The latest fun product they came up with is a die and embossing folder that go together. You can emboss a piece of card stock and then cut out those embossed images using the die. They introduced one in the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog and now they have another one called Twigs & Sprigs. I wanted to make a card using both the embossing folder and the die cuts on a card so you could see how they come out.
To make this card I first embossed a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Orchid Oasis card stock using the Trips & Sprigs Embossing Folder. I adhered that to a Tahitian Tide card base. Next, I embossed a piece of Basic White, Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party card stock and cut the images out using the Trips & Sprigs die. The one large die cuts out all the images at once. Next, I stamped the sentiment using Orchid Oasis ink onto a 1″ x 5.25″ piece of Basic White card stock and layered that onto a 1.25″ x 5.25″ piece of Tahitian Tide card stock. I glued all the embossed pieces behind the sentiment strip and then adhered it all to the card. Lastly, I added some 2022-2024 Incolor Matte Decorative Dots.
Honestly, I don’t think this is the prettiest card but it does show you how the Twigs & Sprigs Embossing Folder and Die Set works and looks.
Perfect Pomegranate is one of the stamp sets you can earn for free with a qualifying order during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-bration. I need to clarify that this stamp set is free with a $300 order. You can place a $300 yourself or you could get a bunch of friends to place an order together. This stamp set is a DisINKtive stamp set. This means that one stamp creates different opacities in a single stamp which brings depth to the image. The flowers and stems on my card are examples of a DisINKtive stamp. You can see where some parts of the images are darker than other parts. This was done with just one stamp.
To make this card I first stamp the branch in Granny Apple Green Ink. Then I stamped the two flowers and the little dots in Pale Papaya ink. I decided it needed a few more leaves so I added a few more to the image. The sentiment is from the stamp set called Go To Greetings. This stamp set has four different sized greetings which include Just A Note, Thank You, Happy Birthday and Thinking Of You. There is also one small Hello included. It is a great stamp set because it can be used for most occasions.
