In the video, Emily gives a closer look at what’s included in the Modern Eucalyptus Cardmaking Kit. She also shares the ink color combination that she used on all of her projects: Avocado, Rose Water, Salt Water Taffy, and Tropical Punch. Then, Emily shows how to foil the Foil It – Modern Eucalyptus panels from the kit using her Minc machine with Champagne Deco Foil. When you stencil the eucalyptus, you can easily get different looks just by changing up which colors you use with each stencil and Emily shows a few examples of that along with how to add color to the foiled panels.
Here’s a closer look at the cards that Emily created with the kit:
For this card, Emily created a frame using the Gemstone Thin Frame Cutting Plate die cut from Tropical Punch, Avocado, and gold glitter cardstock. She added the frame to a Salt Water Taffy cardstock background, adding the ‘happiest birthday to you’ sentiment to the center of the frame. The eucalyptus is added to the top and bottom portions of the frame with foam adhesive to finish the design.
This next card features an Avocado cardstock background that is impressed with the Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets die collection. The Gemstone Thin Frame Cutting Plate die is cut out from Rose Water and gold glitter cardstock and Emily added the ‘just a note’ sentiment embossed in white. The eucalyptus is added to frame with foam adhesive and the card is finished off with a few Bits & Pieces – Gold Drip Drops.
This last card includes the foiled panel. Emily stamped the ‘thank you’ sentiment into the center of the wreath with Oreo Ink, added a strip of gold glitter cardstock down the side of the panel, and adhered it to a Tropical Punch card base.
Check out the supply list below for all of the supplies that Emily used on her cards:
Now, let’s take a closer look at the different elements of the kit as well as more inspiration from the TE Creative Team. Note: Most of these items are only available as part of the Modern Eucalyptus Cardmaking Kit.
Create gorgeous sprays and swags of eucalyptus with the Modern Eucalyptus Layering Stencil set. The set includes four different stencils that layer to create the botanical arrangements. Use the stencils with your Blender Brushes, lining everything up perfectly with the alignment guides. You can also use the stencils to add color to the images included with the Foil it – Modern Eucalyptus panels. Cut out the stenciled designs with the Modern Eucalyptus die collection.
Noriko Fairchild used several shades of green and teal inks to stencil the eucalyptus with the Modern Eucalyptus Layering Stencil set for this card. She cut the stenciled eucalyptus out with the coordinating dies, sprinkled Bits & Pieces – Gold Drip Drops throughout the eucalyptus, and added them to a gold foiled frame from the Foil It – Modern Eucalyptus panels. I love the subtle background that Noriko added to the panel with the Wood Plank Background stamp with Sea Salt ink! The ‘just a note’ sentiment from the Scripted Sentiments stamp set is stamped with Spearmint ink in the center of the frame.
Emily Mydlowski stenciled the eucalyptus with Mint Julep, Spearmint, and Oyster inks using the Modern Eucalyptus Layering Stencil set and then added a final layer with Happy Medium – Silver Glitter. She added the eucalyptus to the bottom edge of a silver foiled frame from the Foil It – Modern Eucalyptus panels and added the ‘always & forever’ sentiment from the Scripted Sentiments stamp set in the center of the frame. I love the extra touch of sparkle that Emily added to the eucalyptus with a few colors from the Tiny Diamonds – Pastel set.
Add a framed design pattern to your projects with the Foil it – Modern Eucalyptus panels. The pack features 3 designs that include the eucalyptus sprays and one design featuring just the frame that you can embellish however your wish. Add color to the eucalyptus using the Modern Eucalyptus Layering stencil set or another coloring medium. Top any of the four designs included in the package with foil and send through your Minc machine to add shimmer and shine – you can use the panels without foiling too!
Jill Hawkins foiled one of the panels from the Foil It – Modern Eucalyptus pack with Turquoise Deco Foil and added color to the eucalyptus swags on the wreath using the Modern Eucalyptus Layering Stencil set. She used Mint Julep, Key Lime, and Cookie Monster inks to stencil the leaves and then added the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment stamped in the middle of the wreath. The strips of Mint Julep cardstock at the top and bottom of the card really helps the colors pop on the card – and it’s the perfect place for Jill’s signature stitching! The finishing touch is a few Bits & Pieces – Drip Drops.
Kavya used the Foil it – Modern Eucalyptus panels to create this set of cards. She left the panel un-foiled for the card on the left and foiled the panel with Lime Deco Foil for the card on the right. Both panels are colored with Copic markers with white gel pen highlights. Kavya fussy cut the wreath designs out to add onto backgrounds that she created with Piñata alcohol inks on our Alcohol Ink Cardstock.
Our Scripted Sentiments stamp set is designed to work perfectly with the images included in the Modern Eucalyptus Cardmaking Kit. Create eye-catching cards for a variety of occasions with the following sentiments:
- Happy Anniversary
- Thank You
- Always & Forever
- Happiest Birthday Wishes to You
- Just a Note
- Thinking of You
- On Your Wedding Day
Heather Nichols is filled a gap in her card stash by creating this trio of anniversary shaker cards with the Modern Eucalyptus Cardmaking Kit. She foiled the frame using a panel from the Foil It – Modern Eucalyptus pack with Bronze Deco Foil. To create the shaker, she cut out the center of the frame using a Stitched Circle Stacklets die. The ‘happy anniversary’ sentiment is stamped into the opening and the shaker is filled with Snow Flurries sequins. Heather added the stenciled eucalyptus to the frame and finished the card off with a strip stamped with the Wood Plank Background stamp to add a rustic touch.
The Modern Eucalyptus Cardmaking Kit includes 6 envelopes and 6 custom envelope seals that coordinate with the theme of the kit. The six A2 envelopes are 2 each of Sweet Basil, Avocado, and Blonde Metallic. The coordinating envelope seals are made from durable, weatherproof material and are sure to bring a smile to the recipients of your cards.
Additional Modern Eucalyptus Envelope Seals are available to purchase in packages of 10.
Emily Mydlowski used one of the Modern Eucalyptus Envelope Seals as the focal point on this card. She impressed the background using the Diagonal Stitch Rectangle Stacklets and encircled the envelope seal with a gold foil cardstock frame created with the Gemstone Thin Frame Cutting Plate die cut from that you will learn more about below!
In addition to the kit, we are offering the Gemstone Thin Frame Cutting Plate die:
Easily cut out a whole series of 1/8″ gemstone shaped frames that perfectly fit A2 cards with our Gemstone Thin Frame Cutting Plate die. In one pass through your die cutting machine, the single die will cut out 12 frames that you can use individually, nest together, or layer together in different directions to create a geometric frame design.
Melody Rupple used the Gemstone Thin Frame Cutting Plate die cut from gold foil cardstock to frame a wreath that she created with the Modern Eucalyptus Layering Stencil set. I love how Melody used enough pieces of eucalyptus to create a complete wreath! The ‘happiest birthday to you’ sentiment is stamped into the center of the wreath and Bits & Pieces – Gold Drip Drops are added to the wreath for a finishing touch!
