I am so excited to be leaving for the Orlando Stampin’ Up Onstage Convention today!
I made this video of a neat fun fold the day before I left…
so maybe it is a little crazy because I was all hyped up…lol.
I just love that gold candle embellishment!
You can easily make it a gift card holder by adhering the circle to the gift card and
then adhering the gift card to the card base.
I added some little gold dots to the candles using a Gold Sharpie Marker to add a little gold to the inside
along with the sequins I am not so sure belong…hahaha
Use the Layering Circle Framelits for the Circles as follows:
25 Again Circle: use 1-7/8″ for the white circle, use 2-1/8″ for the black circle, use 2-1/4″ for the gold scallop
Cake Circle: use 1-3/8″ for the white circle, use 1-5/8″ for the black circle, use for 1-3/4″ the the gold scallop
You’re How Old? Circle: use 1-7/8″ for the white circle, use 2-1/8″ for the black circle, use 2-1/4″ for the gold scallop
Card Opening at top: use the 2-7/8″ circle to cut the DSP and then the 2-5/8″ circle to cut inside the DSP on the Black Cardstock itself
Card Base: Basic Black 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-1/2 and 6-3/4″ on the 11″ side.
Trim off 1/4″ off of the right side while still in the trimmer.
(3) 2-1/2″ Basic Black squares for circles
Broadway Bound DSP: Top 2-1/4″ x 4″, Bottom 4″ x 3-3/4″
Gold Foil: (3) 2-1/2″ squares for scallops
Whisper White inside: 4″ x 3-3/4″, (3) 2″ squares for circles
Oh, how I love Blackberry Bliss although I did call it Blackberry Mess last week at class
since it seems to travel all over the place when we are using it…LOL.
I used the die with the lovely floral design.
I simply used the one die above to cut out the flower and
then another die below to cut out the bottom around the leaves to get a free standing flower.
I also die cut Mossy Meadow leaves and adhered them to the Blackberry Bliss leaves to give the contrast.
The Layered Leaves embossed panel sets the stage for the card. To jazz up the focal image,
I embossed the sentiment in gold, added a vellum stitched oval, a scalloped gold foil border, and scattered some gold sequins.
The Wood Textures DSP with the Gold Metallic Edged Ribbon gives the card a shabby chic feel,
don’t you think?
Simple stamped images finish off the inside of the card:)
Wednesday is the new day I plan to post my videos-
the middle of the week works well with my crazy life
and hopefully it will be a mid-week surprise for you!
To start off the fun, I have a video tutorial for you to make a portrait style
Peek thru the Middle card using the beautiful Frosted Floral Suite and the Treat Time Stamp Set.
I used the Treat Time Stamp Set to do the sentiment. It’s a great set with so many greetings!
The little dots of Pineapple Punch come from the Hearts Come Home Stamp Set.
Here is one I did with another sentiment from Treat Time.
Card Base: Tranquil Tide 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, slide to the left so the score line is at 1-3/4″and cut. Now, cut the piece that falls off to 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ for the bottom of the card.
Focal stamped rectangle: Tranquil Tide Border 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″,
Whisper White stamped panel: 2″ x 4″
DSP on top: 1-1/2″ x 4″, DSP on bottom 2″ x 4″
Whisper White for flowers/thistle: 2″ x 4″
Vellum: 2″ x 3″
I have a video for you today using the Flourish Filigree Stamp Set and the Pretty Label Punch.
I loved how Judy May placed a little bit of ribbon off the bottom of the tag on one of her cards.
I was inspired to do the same, doesn’t it add so much to the card?
Below is the Real Red/Silver version in landscape position but with the stamp in the same place on the Stamparatus.
I made up a few different versions but only had to get the stamp placement done once on the Stamparatus!
Here is the Thank You card I did for my mother-in-law’s passing last month.
Measurements for all three cards:
Card Base for the Red and the Elegant Eggplant 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on 8-1/2″ side and the Card Base for the Black/Gold 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″
The next layer in from the card base is 4″ x 5-1/4″(gold/silver/eggplant)
The stamped panel is 3-1/2″ x 5″
We spent the last couple days in the Outer Banks celebrating the marriage of Brittany and Dan.
I wanted to make her card match her wedding invitations so I used some retired DSP called Timeless Elegance.
I did case myself from this card.
On the inside of the card, I used the sentiment below from the Floral Phrases stamp set.
