I have two more Dainty Delight cards to share today, one using the Dainty Delight stamps and one using the Dainty Delight Dies! This is a Triple Time Stamping Card where you layer the three white pieces together with temporary glue, stamp the images and color them, then take the three white pieces apart and layer them on the base and two purple pieces.
Recipe for Triple Time Stamping Layers
- Stamps: Dainty Delight, Shaded Summer for the Happy Birthday
- Base: Highland Heather; 11 X 4 1/4, scored at 5 1/2
- Mats: same cardstock as bases
- 3 1/4 X 4 1/2
- 2 1/4 X 3 1/2
- Artwork Layers: Basic White, Temporarily adhere together with temp glue or use just a bit of snail and then use your fingers to rub the snail so the oil in your fingers makes the glue less sticky
- 2 X 3 1/4
- 3 X 4 1/4
- 4 X 5 1/4
- Inside Layer: Basic White, 4 X 5 1/4
- Embellishments: Highland Heather Open Weave Ribbon, Brass Butterflies;
- Copic Markers: BV00-flowers, Y06-centers, YG13 for the greenery
- Ink: Highland Heather and Shaded Spruce for front greeting; the flower stems are also stamped in Highland Heather
- Markers: I used Stampin’ Up! watercolor markers for the little inside flowers at the bottom
Dainty has its place depending on the person. I guess that is why we choose to make cards that we can personalize!

- Butterflies: Blushing Bride, 2 X 1, Butterfly Brilliance Dies, Die cut one tiny and one small
- Front Greeting: Basic White, I reached in my container of greetings from More Messages and then punched two backgrounds in Blushing Bride cutting them and layering them
- The Thank You Greeting on the inside is from Go To Greetings stamped in Old Olive

Oh my, Sal, that is the best reason to keep it in the stash. So many of the BAKE SALE items I never used or only used for one workshop. Friends, if the item is in bold it is still available at http://stampinup.com
Check out the BAKE SALE today for great deals on products. I am listing the rest of the stamps on Facebook today.
Thank you for checking out my blog!

Hello Stamping Friends,
Let’s look at a technique called the ‘Twisted Ribbon Card Technique’! By cutting strips of designer series paper and laying them at diagonals it really looks like twisted ribbon.
Our creator is Karen Bouchikas of Karen’s Stamping Place. Here is a pdf of the card cuts with a link to the you tube by Karen.
Here is a screen print of the pdf file. Because the following is a screen print the you tube link will not work directly from the blog post. You need to click on the pdf file and then click on the youtube link — the link works from the pdf file. Thank you to the dear follower who left a comment to point that out! I do apologize for the confusion.
For my card I used the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper for the ribbon strips and the left side panel on a mat of Calypso Coral and a base of Thick Whisper White. The two little butterflies on the front are cut from one of the 6 x 6 pieces of designer series paper. The butterfly on the inside of the card is stamped with the Best Butterflies stamp set using Calypso Coral, Granny Apple Green and Fresh Freesia. The little flowers are from the Fun Flowers Resin Shapes. These products are all in the Annual Catalog. Contact me if you need a catalog!
They are punches, Sal. The Calypso Coral background is the Decorative Circle punch from the Annual Catalog and the top white shape is the Handmade Tag Punch on page 21 of the Holiday Catalog. The ‘happy birthday’ greeting is from the Shaded Summer stamp set. The inside greeting is from Pansy Patch.
Check out another way I used the Handmade Tag Punch with the Handmade Wishes stamp set; the two are 10% off when you buy them together as a bundle:
No, Sal, that is part of the stamp set! Everything you see is part of the stamp set; let me show you:
That set is a must have set!
Let’s see what the rest of my amazing stamping group did for the Case The Creator card. For those of you who are new to following Stampalosopher, the fourth Tuesday of the month I hold a Zoom meeting at 11:30AM and we share our swap cards and what we made for that month’s Case The Creator card. I send out the instructions with the video link about two weeks in advance. Send me your email and you are welcome to join us!
Heather’s birthday card with balloons is just awesome! With light strips on dark strips the ribbon really looks like one piece folded all the way down.
Jo’s card with the gold vellum and gold sequin trim was a card fit for a king!
Joy did a criss cross with her strips and put them on the left side – so unique!
Sharon also crisscrossed her strips and had such fun she made three cards:
Send me a picture if you make a twisted ribbon card and I can add it to this post! That is the nice thing about blogs! I want to make a twisted ribbon Christmas card so check back next month to see if it is posted. I kept waiting to post hoping I would get it done but finally decided I had better just add it at a later date.
Joy Meadows hosted our shoebox swap and taught us how to fold paper to make a kimono! Aren’t her creations beautiful?!
For my swap card I used the Wonderful World designer series paper from the Sale A Bration free offering:
Except for the greeting and the inside, it is an exact case of Linda Bedinger’s card on Ink and Ingenuity. The flowers are fussy cut from the Designer Series Paper. I loved the little bitty flowers on the side matching the great big flowers on the main front. I would do this again if I had a large image and small images on designer series paper! I did several different inside greetings:
The front ‘A little hello…’, the ‘Happy Birthday’ and the ‘Thank You’ are all from Pansy Patch. The ‘Congratulations’ is from Happiness Abounds.
Recipe for Wonderful World swap card:
- Base: Thick Basic White, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
- Front Mat: Pear Pizzaz, 4 across X 4 1/4 down
- Front strips and Inside Mat: Mossy Meadow
- 1/4 X 4 1/4, vertical strip on front
- 1/4 X 4, horizontal strip on front
- 4 X 5 1/4, Inside Mat
- Inside Layer: Basic White, 3 1/2 X 4 3/4
- Side Strips: Wonderful World Designer Series Paper
- 3/4 X 4 1/4 for the front
- 3/4 X 4 3/4 for the inside
- Flowers: Wonderful World Designer Series Paper, fussy cut each
- Ink: Mossy Meadow
- Stamp Sets: Pansy Petal and Happiness Abounds
- Embellishments: Various to go with the flowers
By using a generic greeting on the front, I could include both the Happy Birthday and Thank You in my swap so folks had a choice for their greeting.
That’s all for today! Come on back when I post the projects we did the next month.

Hello Stamping Friends,
Hostess Code through September 15: WKQ6CJ7R
At our July Club we made a special card using the Shaded Summer stamp set and the Summer Shadows dies to do a Partial Die cut and Shadow stamping
Ahh, Sal, I love to find new ways to do things so I have something new to teach my customers. I used a 3/8″ circle punch and punched a little hole on the right side between the images and then, with the card closed, and a pencil line marking a straight line from the right, I punched the left hand side.
Recipe for Shaded Summer Partial Die Cutting and Shadow Stamping
- Stamp Set: Shaded Summer in the Annual Catalog
- Summer Shadow Dies – Free during Sale A Bration with a $100 purchase
- 3/8″ Circle Punch, pencil, ruler, scissors
- Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine
- Inks: Evening Evergreen, Craft White
- Base: Just Jade, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4
- Top Layer: Experessions In Ink Designer Series Paper (DSP) 4 X 5 1/4
- Inside Layer 1: Mint Macaron, 4 X 5 1/4
- Inside Layer 2: Evening Evergreen, 3 3/4 X 5
- Ribbon: Soft Succulent 3/8″ Open Weave Ribbon, 12″
- Embellishments: 3 In Color Jewels
To do a Partial Die Cut on the front:
- Temporarily glue DSP Top Layer flush to the right hand side of front card base.
- Set up Stamparatus to stamp the two Shaded Summer flower images, small at top, larger at bottom, as close as possible to right hand edge. Add the greeting to the stamparatus plate so you can stamp it at the same time.
- Stamp the images with Evening Evergreen until images are dark. If DSP has the darker portion at right it may take three times to stamp the images.
- Pencil a line with a ruler, 1″ over from right hand side. You will line the cutting plates up on this penciled line.
- Make your standard sandwich on the cutting machine with the platform #1, and #2, and then the #3 cutting plate.
- Place your open card on the cutting plate with right side of card base going in head first and secure your dies on the images with sticky notes or tape.
- Place the top cutting plate with its edge on the 1″ penciled line. I found it easiest to go in with the plate from the back of the cutting machine. Hold securely as you start to cut. The plate pops out the back rather hard so don’t have your machine where something could get broken with a flying cutting plate.
- Die cut the images and then fussy cut the sides and middle.
- Take the DSP off base and move over to the left to leave a nice border on the images. Glue in place.
To do Shadow Stamping on inside:
- Use the Stamparatus as above with the two flower images in same place yet position your Evening Evergreen inside layer 1/4″ less than where you positioned your card base, I made lines on the grid sheet so I knew where to line up the base and where to line up the Evening Evergreen remembering that we have a Mint Macaron layer as well.
- Clean off the stamps and then ink them up with Craft White ink and stamp several times.
- Move the card just slightly to the right.
- Clean off the white ink and reink with Evening Evergreen .
- Stamp several times.
- Mount the inside greeting on a separate Stamparatus plate and repeat steps 2-5.
- When you attach your Evening Evergreen layer make sure it is positioned where the inside stamping doesn’t show.
It is, Sal, and the DSP does the rest of the work to make a beautiful card!
