Artistically Asian Window Card

A window card is a pretty and easy card to make and today’s card uses the Artistically Asian stamp set.

You only need two pieces of card stock cut 4 1/4″ x 5″ and score at 1/2″, 1″, 4 1/2″ and 5″ on both pieces.  I stamped the bamboo image using Versamark on the Peekaboo Peach card stock piece to give it a subtle background.

Use the 2 1/2″ Circle punch and centre it on the Peekabook Peach piece and put the card stock right to the bottom of the circle.  The reason for putting right to the edge of the circle is that I wanted to stamp the sentiment towards the bottom.  (You could just centre the punch in the centre of the card stock).

I flipped the piece over so that there was more space at the bottom of the card stock to stamp the sentiment.

Position the Peach card stock over the Whisper White card stock and gently mark the outer rim of the circle to give you a visual to stamp your image.   After stamping the image, erase the pencil marks.

I inked up the image with Peekaboo Peach and Old Olive markers and huffed on it before stamping on the card stock.  The sentiment is stamped with Old Olive classic ink and pearls were added to complete the card.

Fold on the score marks on both pieces of card stock and adhere the edges with Tear and Tape.  Bend the score lines to create a window effect.

Daisy Buckle Card

We held our last Stampers Club for this session until the fall on Monday and we made this buckle card with the daisy punch and Delightful Daisy DSP.

Do you notice the coloration on the front of the card?  The Designer Series Papers this year looks faded, however, it was intentional to provide a color wash look.

It’s been a while that I made a buckle card so it was fun to make.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping!

Tabs for Everything

Tabs for Everything was one of the sets we received at OnStage earlier this year.  I really didn’t see how I would use it until I received the current issue of Stampin’ Success that featured this set.  It comes as a bundle with the new Circle Tab Punch.

I made this mini pizza box with the set for my Open House last weekend.

And I cased the note cards that were in the magazine.

The punch is just too cute. 

Some great uses for the Circle Tab punch are:

  • Make tabs for the catalogue for the different categories
  • Punch out the color of card stock you use on a section of the stamping sponges and staple it to the sponge so it identifies the ink color you are using.  We used to have the tab punch that served the same purpose.
  • Use it as a pull tab on your various projects

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps:  Tabs for Everything (Bundle with Circle Tab Punch #145364 – $40)
  • Paper:  Pool Party, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Subtles DSP
  • Ink:  Pool Party, Powder Pink, Island Indigo,  Wisteria Wonder,Black Archival
  • Accessories:  Circle Tab Punch, Layering Circles Framelits, Dimensionals, Retired Twine

Sneak Peek Daisy Delight

One of the perks of attending OnStage is being able to preorder some of the new products from the upcoming Annual Catalogue.  This is a delightful set with a co-ordinating daisy punch!

And did I mention that there is a beautiful package of Designers Series Paper that co-ordinates with the stamp set.   I love it – so beautiful.

The primary card stock is Calypso Coral cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″.  I cut a piece of the DSP 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ and adhered it to a piece of Peek-a-Boo Peach cut 3 3/4″ x 5 “.  I stamped the daisy onto Whisper White card stock, one using Peek-a-Boo Peach classic ink and the other using So Saffron classic ink.  I then punched them out with the Daisy punch.  I stamped the centre of the Peach daisy with So Saffron.  I added a glue dot on the back the Peach daisy and placed it on top of the So Saffron daisy,  rotating  it to create a fuller effect, before pressing it keep it in place.  One of the new Gold Faceted Gems (they come in Clear too!) was placed in the centre of the daisy.

I brushed each petal with the Wink of Stella to add a bit of shine and then used the bone folder to gently shape the petals backwards.   I cut a piece of the DSP 3/8″ x 3 5/8” (its the reverse side of the DSP panel) and adhered it to the front of the panel.  I added the daisy to the right hand side of the panel with a dimensional.

The sentiment is stamped with Calypso Coral classic ink.  The completed panel is adhered to the front of the card using dimensionals.

Supplies:

  • Stamp Set:  Daisy Delight (in new AC)
  • Paper:  Calypso Coral, Peek-a-Boo Peach, Whisper White, Delightful Daisy DSP (in new AC)
  • Ink:  Calypso Coral, So Saffron, Peek-a-Boo Peach
  • Accessories:  Daisy Punch (in new AC),  Gold Faceted Gems, Dimensionals

Stampin’ Up! Christmas in August

Christmas in August – my first Christmas class for the season – seems a bit early but a good time to get a head start on some holiday projects.   We used the Flurry of Wishes and Snow Place for this card and brought in the new Sweet Sugarplum In Color for the primary color for the card.

Flurry of Wishes 1st Xmas classYou’ll also see a sneak peek of a 3/8″ gorgeous Glitter Ribbon combo pack of Sweet Sugarplum and silver.  So beautiful!

A very quick card to put together with Sweet Sugarplum being the card base color and a layer of Whisper White.  We used the snowflake stamp from Snow Place.  We inked it up with Sweet Sugarplum classic ink and stamped off Snow Flurry punch.

We adhered the Sweet Sugarplum metallic ribbon around the Whisper White piece and popped it up on the card base with dimensionals.  The punched snowflakes are also mounted onto the card with dimensionals.  Basic rhinestones on the snowflakes completed the card.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps:  Flurry of Wishes, Snow Place
  • Paper:  Sweet Sugarplum and Whisper White
