Today’s share features the Cheerful Daisies stamp sand die set, and is one of the projects we taught at SENZ, the scrapbooking expo, here in Auckland earlier this year. The class theme was all about different ways to use embossing folders, and this project showcases how to use a folder on a slimline card background.
I used the Exposed Brick embossing folder in the background here. Sometimes we want to emboss a piece that is larger than the embossing folder, but we want a seamless join. How to do it?
It’s actually quite easy; see the video below. I suggest having the plates for the Mini Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine to use in your larger Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine, even if you do not own the mini machine. They can be very handy for this exact technique.
This project features the Cheerful Daisies dies, possibly the most popular die set in the current catalogue. I love how there are three possible layers to these flowers, use one, two or all three! I’ve used just two layers here.
Daisies are a personal favorite; they were my wedding flower as well. To me, they are simple, beautiful, and a little bit boho – all my favorite things.
