Good morning everyone! Jody here and I'm diving into some die cutting and simple layering! This post also builds off of Erica's post from yesterday, which talked about using busy backgrounds and bold papers. The paper I chose for this Glam Camp layout is definitely what I'd consider to be very bold, beautiful and bold!
Now because this paper is bold, I don't think it needs a lot of the embellishments that I'd normally add to my layouts. I kept the overall embellishments to a select few and added our exclusive die cuts and printables. By the way, these die cuts are AMAZING!! These leaves are fabulous and cut beautifully.
Here's a much closer look at these leaves all layered up! I cut several of the leaves, which comes with an outline type design and a same sized solid leaf for layering, from the fun striped paper. Then I turned the outline style leave around so the opposite colors were against the solid shaped leaf. You see how this looks in the layered leaves at the bottom of the photo below and all the leaves in the second photo below.
Next up, some gold embossing with a the fun Lawn Fawn Wish You Were Here stamp set which is on sale now in our online store. This is such a fun and versatile stamp set with sweet sentiments and great shapes for stamping onto cards and layouts! Case in point below with all the cute little curvy arrows which were stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with some gold embossing powder.
Also in the Lawn Fawn stamp set is a fun little dotted line. You might be wondering how to use that fun little guy? I used it to add a frame to my layout by stamping all around the outer edge with Versamark ink and adding more gold embossing powder. I decided to do it at the end of my layout after I had most of my embellishments adhered down already, which isn't the best time to heat emboss on a layout! But I carefully made it work by laying my Ranger Craft Mat over parts of my layout to help sheild it from the heat gun. Sometimes you just need to roll with it while you scrapbook!
Thank you for spending your precious time with us today! I hope I've helped you find another way to use bold paper in a new way and stretch your stamps a little bit further too. I've linked the products used in my post, but you also find a link to that awesome Lawn Fawn stamp right HERE.
