Last night was the first meeting of my new Stampers 6
There were only 4 ladies last night but we got off to a great start & made some lovely cards using one of my favourite sets Seasons of Joy.
I don't often make A5 cards but it worked really well for this design.
The base of the card is very vanilla with an Old Olive layer. The tree from Seasons of joy was stamped onto Vary Vanilla cardstock in Old Olive & the lovely versatile swirl from the set was stamped across the corners in Cherry Cobbler, cant you tell I love swirls. next I stamped the Bella Toile stamp onto Very Vanilla using the beautiful festive Cherry Cobbler ink. I then used 1 1/8" square punch to punch out 14 squares, I recommend that you layout all of the elements of the card before gluing anything down.
The greeting is from Sincere salutations & is again stamped in Cherry Cobbler, can you see a pattern forming here. The greeting was punched using the scallop oval. I finished the card off using a rhinestone jewel on the star of the tree & a ribbon wrap using Very Vanilla Tafetta.
The above picture is the second card we made which is a slider card & the picture below is the card when it slides open.
The slider card is made from Rich Razzleberry card stock which has been scored at 3 3/4" - 7 1/2" and folded on both score lines. Yo then need two layers one for the inside of the card & one for the layers on the front of the card. I have used the same colours inside that I have used on the front.
2 pieces of Pretty In Pink 9 cm x 14 cm
2 pieces of Whisper white card 8.5 cm x 13.5 cm
( sorry for the mixed measurements but my scoring board is American & in inches & my cutter is in cm)
These pieces make up the layers but I do recommend stamping them before mounting them.
Again this card although not Christmas it uses the swirl from Seasons of Joy Christmas stamp set.
On the front the swirl was stamped in Pink Pirouette twice freehand & then stamped as a shadow in Early Espresso using the Stamp a ma jig to line them up. On the inside Layer the greeting from Sincere salutations is stamped at the top of the Whisper White cardstock & the swirls at the bottom again in Early Espresso.
On the Pretty in Pink card two of the Butterfly solid stamps from Flight of the Butterfly in Pretty In Pink ink & punched out using the butterfly punch. Then using Melon Mambo ink stamp two of the flower butterflies onto vellum & quickly sprinkle with Heat & Stick powder, Heat & whilst still hot sprinkle with Dazzling diamonds glitter & heat too set. Punch these two butterflies out & assemble using glue dots.on the centre of each butterfly allowing for movement in the wings.
Additional supplies 1" circle punch, 1 /4" Square punch, 36cm White Grosgrain ribbon.
