Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Gilded Leafing

January 24, 2021 12 Comments

Hi! Welcome to my blog. I’m Sara Levin theartfulinker. Today is the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop Gilded Leafing. The design team has lots of ideas to share with you for fun ways to use the Gilded Leafing from the January to June 2021 Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog.

I’ve designed my cards in three levels today.  So, there’s something for everyone!

  • beginner/simple stamping: quick, easy projects needing limited supplies; clean and simple cards;
  • casual stamping: takes a little more time, uses some tools, more embellishments, creations for an occasion;
  • avid stamping: more time, techniques, tools, whatever it is, I want to do it!

Today, I’m using two of my favorite products from the Stampin’ Up! Mini Catalog.  I’ve been loving on the Gilded Leafing since I got it in my hot little hands.  But when I first thought about using the Gilded Leafing, I wasn’t sure that I would be able to incorporate it in a simple stamping card.  But, I had an aha moment that will work for any beginning stamper or lover of simple stamping cards!

For Simple Stamping, I love to use the Basic White Note Cards and Envelopes packs.  The larger flower from Art Gallery works beautifully on the note card!  One big beautiful image and your cards is just about ready to send.

To accent both the card and the envelope, I added a stripe of Gilded Leafing.

After adding the Gilded Leafing, I stamped the sentiment in Flirty Flamingo.  These were so quick and easy, I think I need to make up a whole stack!  They’d make a perfect gift or thank you’s to send out to customers.

 

Art Gallery Casual Stamping Card

I like the clean look of the simple stamping card so much, I wanted to carry that over to the casual card.

For this cards, I used layers of Basic White accented with Gold Leafing.

For the focal layer, I stamped the larger circle from Swirly Frames and then gilded it. Next,  I stamped the cluster of blooms from Art Gallery in Coastal Cabana and gilded the berries or buds (I’m not quite sure which they are and it doesn’t really matter.)

Finishing notes for this card are Coastal Cabana Ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack and Opal Rounds.  The Opal Rounds are lovely as they’re almost clear and very lightly shimmery.  So they’re there and not there at the same time for a subtle addition to a card.

 

Art Gallery Avid Stamping Card

And then, I got to my avid stamping card.  I wanted to try to keep to a clean design.  But, I also wanted to GILD EVERYTHING!!

I used one technique to add the Gilded Leafing to the matte layer to create a pretty, shabby gold frame effect.

And, I couldn’t help myself.  I just love the Flowering Vine Dies and I had to see what they would look like gilded — Oh Yeah Baby!  Then, I used the same Marbling Technique on the circular layer that I shared last week (HERE) using the Gilded Leafing before finishing with the blooms from Art Gallery.
