Introducing Out of the Box

Lisas_headshot_2
Lisa Johnson always puts a lot of thought into the functionality of her sets, and her new Out of the Box and Out of the box Sentiments sets are no exception.  A series of "boxed in" images are combined with several options for vertical and horizontal sentiments that can be added inside or outside the box.  For those of you that love to experiment have fun playing with different positions of image combinations, this set  is for you!
…………………………………………………………………………………………………
Stamped_dots
The reverse images in this set lend themselves to a few different techniques you can experiment with.  The first one I wanted to show you is a simple embossing technique.  I started by stamping Polka Dot Basics with Vintage Cream ink onto dark chocolate cardstock.  ………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Embossed_flowers
I waited just a couple minutes for the ink to dry, wiped an embossing buddy over the surface and stamped the floral trio image with Versamark ink.  I then heat embossed the images with Filigree clear embossing powder.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………

Floral_embossing_closeup
I trimmed the blocks out and matted them with mega scalloped squares (pink punch) created from Vintage Cream cardstock.  A bit of Vintage Cream satin ribbon, a chocolate button and some twine provide some nice finishing details.  Two embossed lines created with my Scor-Pal above and below the ribbon provide some added texture and dimension.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Polka_dot_floral_card
Here’s the finished project.  A simple quick technique and a simple quick little card!  Think of all the colors you could make these in!

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Cutting_flowers_2
Next, I wanted to add some dimension AND shimmer to one of Lisa’s reverse images.    I started by stamping this floral image in both Summer Sunrise & Berry Sorbet.  I cut the flowers out carefully from the Berry Sorbet version.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Xyron
I then ran the three small flowers through my Xyron sticker maker, face down.  This applies the adhesive to the front of the image, which is exactly what I needed for glitter application

…………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Glitter_flowers_cloesup
After I had finished *sugar-coating* the flowers, I adhered them to the Summer Sunrise block, overlapping the matching floral portions.  I adhered them with foam dimensionals for a more defined look.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Lisa’s
new set is perfect for Double Vision Vellum window. I have only seen

this technique adds to the card. What better set to use for this
technique!!! Now, I just have to try it. ; )

    I must say I’m intrigued. I am not usually enamored of reverse image designs but I may have to rethink my choices. I really like how you highlighted the flowers in todays card… very attractive!

    I love the card with the technique of stamping the two colors. Cutting out and glitteriing the flower and then remounting them above the other color of the same stamping! It is such a great looking card…I love it! This set seems so functional with so many different techniques you can use! I can’t wait to see the rest of the set….Cynde

    I love these new releases! And your samples and techniques are awesome. I tried a reverse spotlighting technique that I found on SCS and must say I love it! I also love what you have done with Lisa’s new set! I have such a PTI addiction. I can hardly wait from month to month for the next new assortment of products. I sure hope I win this one!!

    The new sets that Lisa has designed are beautiful. I love the versatility that the stamps have and the beautiful ways that they have been used. The glittery flowers look gorgeous!

  • 18
    Justine says:

    I am so excited about this new set for two reasons: 1, I still love my Marvy punches and prefer to reach for them over my Nestabilities, 2, I am thrilled that they are small, which means using scraps, which I hate to file, small also means they will be unbelievably versatile with so many other sets. My favorite masking technique is to cute out the same image I am using, covering my first image and making something look like it is behind the first object. But seeing the kissing with polka dots looks super fun.

  • 19
    fiona y says:

    i really love this set and the fact that it works with the Marvy punches. Papertrey is great like this 🙂
    my fave technique would have to be the kissing technique, quick + easy & always lovely results 🙂

    Sheri Watts says:

    I really like how you can interchange sentiments and make the images pop up like the second card. I like stamp sets that give alot of options and I thinks this stamp set does this.

  • 21

  • 36
    June says:

    I love the kissing technique with reverse images, you can use a complimentary colour to kiss the stamp with which is always such fun. You can also use the kissed stamp for a background. I am loving the look of Lisa’s set, the sentiment shapes look fresh and the daisy with the solidity on one side is just inspired, gorgeous.

  • 37
    Janelle says:

    I’m new to a lot of techniques and I love the way you “sugared” the flowers with glitter and your xyron. Can’t wait to try that one! GREAT stamp set from Lisa — love the versatility (and opportunity to learn so many new things!).

    I love today’s peek! Now I need a little sticker maker. My favorite resist was probably the faux spectrum pad. I never cared for the multi color stamped look but love the example you gave for the faux version. Something new to try.

  • 70

    I like to use the chalkboard technique – stamp the image with white, or you could use the new vintage cream, and then cover the image with chalk. It’s such an awsome effect. I can’t wait until the release party to see all the new sets!!!

  • 71
    Melissa says:

  • 166
    Renee Woolard says:

    One of my favorite uses for the bold boxed image is to simply emboss it. Some images turn out so well when embossed with silver or gold. Makes for good manly cards too.

    Nancy B. says:

    Just when I thought I didn’t need another stamp set you prove me wrong. I can’t wait to try the embossing technique and the perfect pearls pull off technique (totally forgot about that one). I would love to see you offer a phamplet of sorts that has all your countdown and blog hopping projects in it with the directions so I could keep it in a binder to refer to when I am stamping.

  • 185
    Karolyn L. says:

    I LOVE solid image stamps simply because one of my most favorite techniques is the Emerging Color technique that I recently learned on SCS. I loved the technique so much that I used it as my challenge on last month’s mini Virtual Stamp Night challenge that I hostessed. The stampers created some amazing results – and Lisa’s new stamps would be PERFECT for that technique.

  • 186

    Kacey says:

    I must admit, reverse images intimidate me a bit, I don’t really know what to do with them that makes them extraordinary. So, with that said, I am looking forward to seeing what the team does to help me find some new techniques. I love both of these cards (of course!).

  • 191
    Marcie Sharp says:

  • 194
    Paula Laird says:

    I love Lisa’s style. I can’t wait to see the entire set. Out of the Box Sentiments sounds very promising, too! Very cool to use the xyron to add gliter! I’m going to have to try that!

    Flowers are one of my favorite themes if you look at my paper and stamp collections. What I love about this set is the reverse stamps–I have so few that are reversed, which I feel ads more to a stamp’s versatility. I am really looking forward to this set and love Nichole’s example.

    Tina says:

    Very cool – you really made me to stop to think about the reverse image technique I like the best, and I would have to say emboss resist is one of my favs. Besides using clear EP and then inking over the image, I also enjoy the “ghost” image created with a watermark pad and glossy cardstock. Thanks for the chance to win, can’t wait until the weekend to see everything. BTW, thanks for the Vintage Cream and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new blue!

    I love how you clear embossed the image on the chocolate cardstock. It makes it look like the polka dots were stamped on top of that image!! Very clever!!

  • 281
    Cindy H. says:

    While I would enjoy doing both techniques with Lisa’s new images (fun images!), I’m drawn to the *sugar coating* card – so bright and cheery. I love the chocolate card, too – such a clever technique! I’ve revisited some of your previous techniques – and oh my, lots of choices – so hard to choose.

  • 282
    Melissa in NC says:

    I love that polka dot basics was used first and then the flower image embossed over it. What a neat idea! Using the versamark on the dark cardstock with clear embossing powder is a subtle effect and a great way to avoid buying colored embossing powder for every cardstock color. I can’t wait to try it!

    Lisa’s new set is so clean and fun. It is refreshing to see such a great set in an industry that is so often distressed. LOVE IT!

My wish list gets longer and longer and I hope my friends and family ask me what I would like for my birthday and Christmas b/c PTI gift certificates will be at the top of the list. Who needs jewelry or new clothes? It’s PTI for me. I love the technique of running the cut out stamped image in the Xyron and adhering the glitter. So clever and easy to do. I’ll be trying that one for sure.

    Beautiful design Nichole 🙂 One of the easiest reverse image techniques for me (ohh geesh I pray this is the correct name for this technique?!) I call the “Crayon Resist”. It’s extremely easy but leaves your stamped image and background with such a major W-O-W factor.
    Thank you Nichole for the chance to your Blog Candy.
