Peek A Boo Card and Open Book Easel Card

Hello Stamping Friends,

Let’s look at this month’s club cards for those who have kits and need the instructions or those who want to recreate cards like them!

Peek A Boo Card

Here is the Youtube video:  (Did you know you can go to the settings and increase the speed?)

Thanks to Dawn Griffith for these dimensions.

  • Base:  Basic White, 4 1/4 X 8 1/2  scored at 4 1/4
  • Using the 2nd Largest Oval in the Stitched Shapes Framelits, fold the Basic White and cut ovals on the right hand side through both front and back.  My ovals are 1/2″ down from the top to the top edge of the framelit, 3/4″ up from the bottom to the bottom edge of framelit and 2 1/4″ from the right side of the Basic White to the left hand side of the framelit.
  • Front:  Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper (DSP), 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
  • Inside:  Hydrangea Hill DSP, 4 1/4 X 4 1/4 (minus a hair on the horizontal side to take into account the score line)
  • Using your Oval Framelit and a sticky note to hold the DSP in place on the Basic White, cut an oval in the front DSP and another oval on the inside DSP.  SAVE the cutout from the inside to glue on the mechanism.
  • Mechanism A:  Highland Heather, 4 1/4 X 5 3/4, scored on the long side at 5 1/2
  • Mechanism B:  Highland Heather, 4 1/4 X 3, scored on the short side at 2 3/4
  • Fold and burnish well the 1/2″ tabs on mechanisms A & B.  Attach A to the left side of the front DSP with the tab to the inside and attach B to the inside DSP on the right hand side with the tab hidden on the inside. Note: I used tear and tape and rolled the tiny bit of excess tape back onto itself to prevent any glue from catching on the mechanism.
  • Use a pencil to outline the oval on the Highland Heather and stamp your front greeting.  I used Blackberry Bliss to give a darker purple color and the friendship greeting in ‘Grace’s Garden’ stamp set.
  • Stamp the greeting on the oval cutout for the inside; I used the friend greeting from ‘Heartfelt’
  • After attaching the mechanisms, glue your inside DSP to the Basic White and then the front DSP to the Basic White.  Note: put the glue on the white not the front DSP because that piece is larger than the Basic White.  The small mechanism should go into the middle with the large mechanism at the back.
  • Use your pencil again to draw the oval for the inside on the mechanism that peeks in when you open the card.  Glue the oval cut out in place
  • Embellish with a little piece of ‘Gorgeous Grape Ribbon’ 2 X 1 1/2, two blackberry bliss punched butterflies, 3 pastel pearls and 1 butterfly gem (can you find it hiding on the left hand side?)

 

Open Book Easel Card

I was so delighted with how this card turned out and patting myself on the back but then had a humbling experience as I tried to do the Facebook Live and the sound echoed and the lighting didn’t work…… The silver lining to the mishaps was that I went to Youtube and learned how to edit a Youtube video so I could cut out the first eight minutes of echoing to make it a little easier for you to endure.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t fix the lighting so it still has a bit of a glare – so sorry for that less than professional presentation.  If you viewed the first video you see I had both lighting and sound corrected.  I made better notes for set up next time.

Thank you to Tina Zinck of the Serene Stamper for teaching me how to make an Open Book Easel Card.

  • Base:  Misty Moonlight, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2 scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4.  Fold in half and then Z fold the 2 1/8″ score line
  • Bottom Layer at top of easel and the layer at the base of easel (X2): Brass Foil in the ‘World of Good’ DSP, 5 1/8 X 1 7/8, watch the direction of the words as you glue the pieces to the base
  • Easel Stand:  Misty Moonlight, 5 1/8 X 7/8 and a DSP strip of compasses, 4 7/8 X 5/8; Note the Misty Moonlight has no border but the compasses DSP does have a border
  • Globe and Stand:  Misty Moonlight, 2 1/4 X 2 1/4, Die cut circle with the circle in the World Map Dies,                                 Use Brass Foil 2 1/4 X 3 1/4 to die cut the globe and the stand
  • Book Layers:
    • Cinnamon Cider: 5 1/8 X 3 7/8; score at 2  9/16 – one 16th mark past the half mark
    • Designer Series Paper:  (Beige with words) 4 7/8 X 3 5/8; score at 2 7/16, one 16th mark less than the half mark
    • Cinnamon Cider:  4 5/8 X 3 3/8; score at 2 5/16, one 16th mark past the quarter mark
    • Designer Series Paper: (Map) 4 3/8 X 3 1/8; score at 2 3/16, one 16th mark less than the quarter mark
  • Banner:  Cinnamon Cider, 1 X 3, Stamp with Memento Black and embellish with the Antiqued Corners

Curl each of your book layers.  Break the fibers with the bone folder then wrap around the Take A Pick tool.

Place Tear and Tape on the middle of each book layer, burnish well, attach to its layer.  Note: fold the layer in half to place so you can get it right on the score line of the next layer down.

Place glue dots on the edge of each layer and push the layer in toward the middle to maintain the curl before you push down on the glue dots. Hint:  Use less curl if you are mailing and a little more if you are hand delivering.

Place Tear and Tape on the easel top base at 1/16 down from top and over 1/16 on the right and the same on the left and all the way down on the top easel layer to mount the book to your easel base.  Mount your book recurling that last layer if needed.

Use glue dots to mount the globe to the bottom of the top page of the book checking placement so that the globe fits correctly on the base.

Stamp your greeting on the Cinnamon Cider strip, embellish with the antique corners and mount with glue dots.

I used white embossing and “Congratulations on this new beginning” on the inside.

That, my friends, is the second of our two club cards for April.  May is the catalog launch and then we start a new club rotation in June so contact me if you are interested and I will answer any questions you may have.  Text 303-815-0838.

Remember:  the World of Good Suite and all its individual products (page 24-26 of the Annual Catalog) are retiring and most have a huge discount right now so head to the online store to purchase them.  The Butterfly punch I used on the first card is also retiring (Butterfly Duet, pg. 165) and it is great for quick embellishments in the color of your choice.  Butterflies are always good for those times when we get a shadow or smudge on our artwork!

Have a wonderful day!

SAL,  Share A Love of stamping

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

February Club Swaps

Hello Stamping Friends,

March’s hostess code is:  A3VBV4QZ

Check out these beautiful swap cards made by the club members and come back tomorrow to see the Mystery Card #10 that is a fun part of being in club.  Each month I make cards and deliver kits to the club members; then we gather on the second Tuesday of the month at 9:30 via Facebook Live to construct the kits.  On the last Tuesday of the month we meet via Zoom to share our swap cards, chat a bit, and do a Mystery card challenge.  I send the instructions for the card and then each person gathers the supplies and we put the cards together on the Zoom meeting.  Each person chooses their own color of cardstock and designer series paper and it is so fun to see all the different cards made with the same set of measurements.

Before you show and tell February, shouldn’t you tell them about March?

I almost forgot!  We are ready to celebrate and get together again.  Since March is a non-club month I am having my first in-house stamping event to stamp two cards with the Hey Birthday Chick bundle and two cards with the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle – (available to purchase March 2).  Space is limited to four people but there are four sessions. Stampers will each be seated on one side of a large table so we are still distanced from each other.  Cost is $15.  Text me at 303-815-0838 if you are interested.  I can take Paypal, Venmo, Cash or Check.

  1.   Tuesday, March 9, 1:00 PM.     —Full
  2.    Wednesday, March 10, 10:00 AM.  — Open
  3.    Wednesday, March 10, 1:00 PM — Open
  4.    Saturday, March 13, 10:00 AM —Full

How many of the members swapped? 

We had six members swap and myself.  Let’s start with Lori’s ‘Everything Is Rosy’ Gatefold Card.  There was a ‘Rosy Suite’ that you could purchase last year and after it retired, the whole suite was in the clearance rack.  I hope some of you were able to get this amazing set of products.  The outside sentiment, flowers and Everything Is Rosy DSP are all from the suite. The inside sentiment is from the current ‘So Sentimental’ stamp set.  Night of Navy is the base cardstock.

 

Next we have Jo’s card using the Flight of Fancy and Heartfelt stamp sets with gray for the base and a sponged white Layering Oval as well as Stitched Shapes and Be Mine Stitched Framelits.  Inside has “so lucky to have a friend like you” in pink.

Suzi used the current JJ Mini Flowering Cactus Product Medley for her swap card on a layer of white card stock embossed with the Dainty Diamonds embossing folder.  This medley has dies, twine, DSP-designer series paper, a lovely cactus stamp set and die-cut felt sheets.  See page 9 of the JJ mini.  There is also a refill kit!

Joy used the oh so beautiful heart from the Stitched Be Mine Dies which carried over to the Annual Catalog!  If you were in club a couple years ago you will remember this beautiful DSP.  Hopefully you have some in your stash.

  

Lucille’s card uses paper that is quite similar to our Forever Greenery DSP.  The sentiment is from Stampin’ Up’s Quite Curvy Stamp set and the hearts are from her Framelits Heart Collection.

.   

Sharon has outdone herself once again with the Wreath Builder Dies and the Arrange A Wreath stamp set.  I didn’t notice that little heart with the love cut out until I saw her card.  I had to go see those dies (pg. 173).

.  

My card uses the ‘Floral Heart Dies’ In the JJ MIni page 12 and is a case of Kylie Bertucci with a bit different pink. The sentiment is from the ‘Always In My Hear’t coordinating stamp set.  I die cut the floral heart in basic black and then cut another in Flirty Flamingo, popped the pink heart up with dimensionals over top of the black heart and then ‘paper pieced’ the little flowers with the Flirty Flamingo sections.  The key is to use the double back adhesive on the card stock and a dryer sheet to keep the pieces together.  Stay tuned for a future video on paper piecing.

Recipe 

  • Base: Basic Black, 11 X 4 1/4 scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer:  Basic White, 5 1/4 X 4
  • Floral Heart:  Basic Black, 4 1/2 X 4 1/4, place the cardstock on a piece of double back adhesive sheet 4 X4 1/4, die cut with the Floral Heart Die
  • Pink Heart and Flowers:  Flirty Flamingo, cut a full piece of the Floral Heart Die and paper piece on top of the black or Die cut the heart with a 2 1/2 X 2 1/2 piece of Flirty Flamingo and (2) 1 X 1 pieces cutting just the flower portion. Use double back adhesive on the flowers and die cut on top of a dryer sheet to keep the pieces together.
  • Greeting: Basic Black, 1 X 2 1/2, stamp the greeting in Versa Mark ink and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Hint: stamp your greeting at the top corner of your rectangle then fussy cut the bottom and sides.
  • Embellish:  Various, I used black ribbon, pink ribbon, or black ribbon on a Flirty Flamingo strip and three rhinestones

.

In the Floral Heart Dies is a cut out for just the flower so I cut it once in black and then again in Flirty Flamingo placing both on the adhesive sheets and a dryer sheet before cutting.  The little hearts are in the coordinating ‘Always In My Heart’ stamp set.  Purchased together, you would get a 10% discount.  The Happy Valentines Day is from the ‘Heartfelt’ stamp set currently in the Annual catalog page 75.  As catalogs retire, you can look at the date of the post and go to the catalog tab to find the catalog I refer to and see other examples.

Thank you for spending time with me today.  Tomorrow we will look at Mystery Card #10 and the new Butterfly Brilliance Bundle that is being offered as a special in March.

SAL,  Smile A Little – spring is coming!
