A Fun Puzzle Card featuring the New Embossing Mat and the Simply Shammy!

Today's project combines a whole lot of impact in just under 4 minutes video time - so make sure you watch!  It's a fun new stamp set, uses the Big Shot embossing pad, the Simply Shammy, a fabulous new embossing folder.....and an explosion of color!

And - like I said - it's super duper quick! Here is the video - see for yourself!

Here is a close up of what effects you can get with the new Big Shot Embossing Mat.  The die I used to create the puzzle impression actually CUTS your cardstock into a bunch of puzzle PIECES (which I plan to use in the future for a fun children's card!)  But with the magic of this mat - my die becomes much more like the folders and just gives me an impression.  Are you already thinking now of what dies you have in your stash that you can now turn into something new and amazing?!!!

In the video you may have noticed how I have been using my Simply Shammy.  One thing you need to do is let it dry completely between uses so it will not mold.  I keep mine in a stamp case and spritz it with one of our tiny spritzers of water.  This way I don't get it more wet than it needs to be if I am just stamping one card - so it dries quickly.  It makes doing a rainbow effect like the inside of this card so easy - as the Shammy cleans up the rubber quickly!

The embossing folder that I used is also a new one called Subtle.  It leaves a nice 'subtle' pattern in the cardstock - you can see it in the picture below.  One thing it would be perfect for is if you have any old paper that may have damaged corners or look a bit worn - run it through this folder and it will fix it right up!  It is a great texture!

Take a look at the entire stamp set by clicking on the recipe below.  It has some different images and sayings - the dies cut out images in the set - but the large piece can be combined with countless stamps turning just about anything into a fun puzzle card or project.

Next week starts the always popular Buy Three Get One Free sale on Designer Series Papers!  I am putting together a combined Paper Club AND a Class to Go for you!  It will be one that works with some of our most popular stamp sets - so if you have them, you will be good to go - or you can add them to your club when you order the club.

Once you place your order for the Paper Club - you will have a fabulous assortment of nearly all of the papers that are featured in the catalog (in the $11 range), the cardstock and embellishments to complete 3 fun projects and an exclusive PDF emailed to you with instructions to complete the projects.  They will include the stamps I used and suggested alternates if you do not have those.  In addition - there will be some additional specials offered on what you might need to complete the projects through the month of July!

Sign Ups will start Wednesday and spaces will be limited for the Paper Club.  It will go out to my email members before it is posted here.  If you have not signed up to be on my email list - do it now!  You can find the sign up form up on the right hand side of this page!
