RCC67: Bump it Up

Hey bloggers,

I just got an awesome shipment from Stampin Up and wanted to play!! I know its Christmas but honestly, you can never be too early, right? I love love this stamp set so I thought I would come up with something for it.  Then I remembered the ribbon carousel challenge of the week and decided to work with some embossing and "bumpin" it up! 

Here's my end result!
Materials Used ( all Stampin Up this time): Cherry Cobbler, vanilla and old olive card stock, Early espresso Core'ordinations paper, Victoria trim, Crumb cake scalloped tulle ribbon, brushed broze buttons, SU hat pins (retires), Winter Memories stamp set, Crumb cake ink, early espresso ink, Lacy Brocade embossing folder, SU pearls, cherry cobbler and original dazzling details, as well as blender pens.

Here's the instructions:

1. Cut half a sheet of cherry cobbler card stock and score it down the middle.  Cut a piece of the Core'dinations Early Espresso paper 5 1/4" x 4".

2. Using the lacy brocade embossing folder, run the core'dinations paper through the big shot.  Sand the top of the this using the sander to give it that vintage look.

3. Take the victoria trim ribbon (Cut 10") and tie. I didn't use adhesive yet. Tie around the sanded paper and then adher to the cherry cobbler using sticky strip or tombeau glue.

4. Grab your stamp set and using the early espresso ink, stamp the images on the vanilla carstock (3 1/2" x 2 1/2"). Color using blender pens with crumb cake, basic gray, old olive and cherry cobbler inks. Then take scissors and "scrape" along the edges of this paper.  Edging it with crumb cake to give it that distressed look.  I also lightly rubbed the crumb cake on the paper to make it look even more vintage.

5. Then you are goign to grab your Adorning accents edgelit and run that through the big shot wtht he old olive paper. Be careful with this - keep it in place with a small glue dot as it tends to move sometimes.  Then using the new paper piercing pack, line it up with your edgelit and pierce it along using the guide. I love the way it gives those gorgeous preforations!!!  And a final touch is edging it with early espresso.  You are then going to adher to the card - again using either sticky strip or glue dots.

6. Grab your vanilla stamped paper and line it up against the old olive. I raised mine above the card to give it more of a unique look and make it stand out! 

7. You are now going to grab the new crumb cake scalloped tulle and tuck it under the victoria trim.  I cut a 6" piece and then just played with it. I secured it with some glue dots to hold the "folds".

8. Finally, time for your embellishments.  Grab the SU new bronzed buttons, pearls and the hat pins (retired) and adher.  Don't forget dazzling details on the blade and the berries in the poinsetta.
