Peaceful Place Paper & Evergreen Forest 3D Embossed

Peaceful Place Paper & Evergreen Forest 3D Embossed

Welcome to your Make it With Margi October Tutorial.  Here is your Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper & Evergreen Forest 3D Embossed  – Card #1 for this month’s tutorial.

We are using the stunning, shimmery, silver-foiled Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper as our focal point, with the Embossed Evergreen Forest as our backdrop. The colours used are Evening Evergreen (2021-2023 In Color) and Pool Party to add that shimmer of soft blue/green. We are adding a strip of Painted Christmas DSP to add colour resonant of our Australian foliage and summer.

If you’re not in my class groups, you are welcome to enjoy these designs and your own creativity. If you would like to join one of my groups (online – at the moment) and live in Australia, please contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Ingredients for Peaceful Place Specialty DSP and Evergreen Forest 3D Embossed Card.

Let’s step through the ingredients used for our Card. Some are in the Annual Catalogue and some in the July-December Mini Catalogue.

Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper

Evoke a tranquil setting when you craft with this Peaceful Place Designer Series Paper or add a pop of colour for an exciting change. It’s shimmery and silver foiled, with both scenes, pattern and texture.  No matter what you’re making, from greeting cards to scrapbook pages, these calming nature scenes and muted colour schemes will set the perfect mood.

Evergreen Forest

Create beautiful embossed backgrounds and accents using the Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. It’s a great way to elevate your projects and give them some dimension and texture. Use it on card backgrounds and other elements for paper projects.

It’s easy to make a great impression! Just place flat cardstock in this embossing folder, run it through a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, and out comes cardstock with a bold textured design.

Stamp Set Greetings: Words of Cheer, Whimsical Christmas and Snowflake Wishes

In this design, I have pulled in various stamp sets for my stars and greetings.  I used Words of Cheer for the greeting and mini snowflakes/stars from Snowflake Wishes for the card front.  I added one of the greetings from Whimsical Christmas on the card insert.  Isn’t it fabulous to be able to use what products we have on hand to create great handmade cards.  I love both of these greetings and thought they worked well for designing our cards this year.

You might have the same or other greetings and stars/snowflakes that will work for the design.  Have fun putting your own creativity to play.

Peaceful Place Specialty DSP Samples & Ideas.

Please enjoy these other samples.  All feature Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper.

The first example is a standard card base with various layers.  Once again, I have used Evergreen Forest 3D Embossing Folder. Real Red is the pop of colour.  The die cut tree on the insert is die cut using Whimsical Trees Bundle (Christmas Trees Dies).

The second example is a gift card holder, perfect for giving at Christmas or any time.  You might spot my MYKI card to demonstrate the size of the pocket. One of my fellow Aussie Demonstrators, Heidi Bell, created this brilliant brilliant design which I have tweaked it a little bit.

I used Layering Circles to frame my Peaceful Place Specialty DSP cabin scene, Cherry Cobbler is the pop of colour, Wonderful Snowflakes add the bling to the already silver embossed paper.  The little stars on the card insert are silver heat embossed.  Once again the greeting is from Words of Cheer Stamp Set.

Words of Cheer Bundle

This bundle isn’t just for Christmas.  Please enjoy this example of another use.  I used the HAPPY to decorate a handmade envelope (DL size) for Pete’s birthday card.  I also used Playful Alphabet Dies to die cut his name.  It was a snap to make!  Don’t you love the ribbon.  It’s also from the Mini Catalogue and is Chery Cobbler & Gold.  The paper and little bird are from Beauty of the Earth Suite (Annual Catalogue).
