Wide Ribbon on Cards

February 11th, 2016 by craftdoc

I confess, I’ve been hoarding my Watermelon Wonder Satin ribbon wondering how to use it.  After seeing 2 great cards to CASE , I cut into it and make these 2 lovely (and easy) cards.

Today’s Tips:

-Click on the photos to enlarge.

-It’s hard to make knots with a wide ribbon.  For the first card, I just tucked a small piece around and attached it underneath the flat ribbon.  For the second, I took a 5″ piece and tied it in a knot around the flat ribbon.  I laid a piece of Watermelon Wonder sequins (from the January Paper Pumpkin kit) inside the knot.

-Designer Series Paper – Birthday Bouquet – just cut 2″ into the center of the panel and fold it back, adhering to a Thick Whisper White card base.

-Stamp sets used were:  What I Love and Suite Sayings.     All supplies are Stampin’ Up! -you can get them at my website shop.

Today’s Tips:

-click on the photo to see a larger image.

-For the Spinner Card:  attach the Perfectly Artistic DSP panel to a Smoky Slate Panel.  With the Word Window Punch, insert all the way from the bottom and make a track.  Attach 2 pennies with a Stampin’ Dimensional.  I cut off the 2 corners of the Dimensional to make it spin better.  Add the airplane to the top penny with another dimensional.  Insert into the track.  With more dimensionals, add the panel to the card base to give room for the airplane to spin as you move the card.

-For the Window Sheet Card:  Remove 2-1/4″ from the center of the Soft Sky card base.  Adhere a 3″ piece of Window Sheet to replace that section.  Adhere some clouds from the Tree Builder Punch and the stamped airplane.  Be sure your inside greeting “Congratulations” will be hidden behind the bottom panel.

Birthday Blooms

February 8th, 2016 by craftdoc

I used the Birthday Blooms stamp set by Stampin’ Up! to make this elegant card.  You can call it fussy cutting, or paper tole.  Click on the photo to enlarge.

Today’s Tips:

-Stamp 3 of the images – 1 on your Whisper White panel and 2 on Pink Pirouette Cardstock.  Cut out petals on the inside edge of the lines and stack with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

-Color the stamens with Gold Wink of Stella.

-Tap the Wink of Stella pen on your finger to make some gold splatters.

All products can be purchased at my website shop.


More Valentine’s Day Cards

February 6th, 2016 by craftdoc

This Valentine’s Day card has a really cute punch idea – can you guess which punch I used on Silver Glimmer Paper for the Hershey Kiss?

Today’s Tips:

-Don’t forget the annual catalog for your Valentine’s Day projects.  Here I used the Sweet Stack stamp set that coordinates with the Cutie Pie Thinlits Dies.  I don’t have the dies yet, but the stamps alone are versatile.

-All right, the punch is the Sweetheart Punch, with the top snipped off and then turned upside down.

-Curl a little scrap of cardstock after stamping XOXO in Soft Sky Ink.

-Like yesterday, I used the Happy Heart Embossing Folder for the background.

All supplies can be purchased at my website shop – don’t forget to check out the Weekly Deals.


More Valentine’s Day Cards

February 5th, 2016 by craftdoc

Here’s an easy Valentine’s Day Card that uses the Sale-A-Bration freebie “What I Love”.  And I just love the font on the sentiments.  Inside is stamped “You”.

Today’s Tips:

-The flower is a 3 step stamp.  I stamped the outside in Rose Red and the 2 inside stamps in Blushing Bride, one stamped off to be lighter.

-The outside panel was run through the Big Shot with the Happy Heart Embossing Folder to give a subtle nod to Valentine’s Day, although it could be used for an everyday card as well.
