Woodland TIEF by Stampin’ Up!

Woodland TIEF by Stampin’ Up! #GDP067

As promised earlier in the week, I am back with my second entry for the Global Design Project’s Tree themed challenge! This time I’m using the Woodland TIEF by Stampin’ Up!, which is extremely popular with my customers!

I’ve used this embossing folder for a few cards that I’ve posted on my blog and this time I wanted to try out something a bit different. I’ve seen lots of awesome watercolour birch pictures on Pinterest that have been painted free hand. Unfortunately, I just don’t have the skill to do that, so I cheated to make today’s card. And I love how it’s turned out!

Woodland TIEF by Stampin' Up! using watercolour pencils Tracy May #GDP067

I embossed a piece of watercolour paper, using the Woodland TIEF by Stampin’ Up! Then I painted in between the trees with masking fluid and allowed it to dry. Once the masking fluid was dry, I painted the trees with the new watercolour pencils that are available from January 4th in the new Spring/Summer Catalogue (email me if you are in the UK and don’t already have one!).

I removed the dried masking fluid and flicked some paint from the end of the watercolour pencils using a wet paint brush. You can also use an aqua painter for this. So what do you think? I love how it turned out!

Thanks for stopping by, I’m hoping to get some more time in my craft room over the weekend. I’ll share what I come up with over the next few weeks so please do pop back again to check. Or sign up to follow me by email if you like!

Woodland Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up!

Woodland Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up! ®

Well this isn’t really a sneak peek as the Woodland Embossing Folder from Stampin’ Up! was around in the last Autumn/Winter catalogue. It retired when the catalogue ended but did you know that Stampin’ Up! have made the unprecedented decision to bring it back in the upcoming annual catalogue? It doesn’t usually happen when an item retires, but apparently it was very popular and so they decided to bring it back – which is great as I for one love it. I have a few more ideas for this embossing folder but here’s one that was inspired by a kitchen makeover, that I saw on a home improvement programme on TV lol!

Woodland from Stampin' Up! Tracy May

The made-over kitchen walls had been painted a lovely sky blue and one end had a feature wall with a butterfly and birch tree printed wallpaper! It instantly made me think of the Woodland Embossing Folder and my butterfly stamps and punches.

This card was really quick to make:

  1. Stamp the butterflies from Kinda Eclectic onto Whisper White card stock (10cm x 14.3cm);
  2. Run the panel through the Big Shot using Woodland Embossing Folder;
  3. Heat emboss the sentiment on Dapper Denim and cut to a banner. Staple to the card front;
  4. Adhere the card front to a Soft Sky card base;
  5. Stamp some extra butterflies onto scrap card stock and punch out using the Bitty Butterfly Punch. I used Daffodil Delight and Dapper Denim ink pads.

So what do you think? Pretty? The wall paper in the programme was lovely but there’s no way my husband would go for it, so I’ll just have to settle for the card! 😂

Die cuts from Stampin’ Up! Woodland Embossing Folder

Use your Stampin’ Up! Woodland Embossing Folder (TIEF) to create “die cuts”. I created these clean and simple Christmas cards by cutting out the negative spaces between the embossed trees.

I just love the Stampin’ Up! Woodland embossing folder, don’t you? There’s so many beautiful cards, that I’ve seen using it and I have also seen so many beautiful cards on Pinterest too that have been created using a birch tree die cut. Given that Stampin’ Up! don’t do a matching die for the embossing folder I decided to create my own “die cut”.

It’s very simple really. Just run your card stock through your Big Shot or other die cut/embossing machine to emboss it and then use a craft knife and/or scissors to remove the negative spaces between the embossed trees. Stick over a panel of card stock and complete your card as desired.

Stampin' Up! Woodlands Embossing Folder Christmas Card Tracy May

I stamped the baubles above in Versamark ink and then went over them with the fine-tip glue pen to add the silver glitter.

I teamed my cards up with the Among the Branches (which also comes as a bundle with the Woodland Embossing Folder yay!)  and Jingle All the Way stamp sets for some very elegant and CAS (clean and simple) Christmas cards. I love the colour of the sentiment above. I inked the stamp up with Versamark first before inking with Lost Lagoon and then heat embossing with Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder.  What do you think?

On the subject of Christmas, which is always a very busy time of year,  Stampin’ Up! are offering a reduced amount of weekly deals, to avoid items going in to a backorder situation. There are still some very good deals though!
