More Dainty Delight Cards

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

  • Copic Markers:  BV00-flowers, Y06-centers, YG13 for the greenery

  • Markers:  I used Stampin’ Up! watercolor markers for the little inside flowers at the bottom

Which do you like better for triple time- the Dainty, the Color Contour or the butterflies? 

Dainty has its place depending on the person.  I guess that is why we choose to make cards that we can personalize!

So is the Dainty Delight bundle going to be put in the bake sale since you used it more than most?

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!

Case The Creator #7, Twisted Ribbon Card

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.

Case The Creator #7 printable pdf file

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!

  I don’t recognize the labels you used for the Happy Birthday?!

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:

.  

Did you hand draw the scrolly?  It kind of looks like what you put under your name when you sign things. 

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.

Paper Piecing with Summer Shadows Dies

Hello Stamping Friends,

Paper Piecing with Summer Shadows Dies:

 

I had fun yesterday making this video to show you how to do Paper Piecing with the ‘Summer Shadows Dies’ .  They coordinate with the Shaded Summer stamp set.

Your customers keep asking about that technique.

I know, Sal, and this is the perfect set of dies to help out with paper piecing.  There is a set of background dies and a set of detailed dies in exactly the same size!  We can cut the backgrounds using the double back adhesive sheets and then die cut two colors in the detail dies for the paper piecing.

.   

.

An alternative using a different stamp in Shaded Summer:

That doesn’t look like the stamp in the set.  It is not on two lines.

Shhh, Sal.  I took my snips and cut the stamp apart so it would fit on the Tailor Made Tag.

Recipe:

This card was inspired by the diagonal strip that I saw on a card by Mary Deatheridge.

  • Stamps:  Shaded Summer
  • Dies: Summer Shadows Dies, Tailor Made Tags Dies
  • Markers:  Cherry Cobbler, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green (DO NOT USE BLENDS-blends stain stamps)
  • Base:  Flirty Flamingo, 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 5 1/2
  • Layer 1 (make 2-one for the inside):  Cherry Cobbler, 4 X 5 1/4
  • Layer 2:  Designer Series Paper (DSP)- Painted Christmas, 3 7/8 X 5 1/8- NOTE: Do not mount until diagonal strip is on
  • Layer 2-Inside:  Basic White, 3 7/8 X 5 1/8
  • Layer 3-Inside:  DSP, 1 3/4 X 3 7/8 cut diagonally, Hint:  if you make two cards, this is the remainder of two 3 7/8 X 5 1/8 pieces;  Tip:  Make sure when you cut your diagonal it runs the same way as the diagonal on the front.  Yep – made that mistake.
  • Diagonal Strip:  Basic White, 2 X 5,
    • Emboss with Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder
  • Border on Strip:  Cherry Cobbler, 2 1/8 X 5 1/8
    • Adhere the Basic White strip on this small Cherry Cobbler border
    • Mount this bordered strip of Basic White on the DSP diagonally,  the left side is about 2″ down from top, 3/4″ up from bottom
    • Turn to the back and cut off the excess strip
    • Now mount to the main Cherry Cobbler layer
  • Tag:  Basic White, 1 1/2 X 2 3/4, Stamp then die cut with smallest of the straight top Tailor Made Tags Die
  • Flowers: the dies on the left are background dies, the dies on the right are detailed dies for the top  and the two at the bottom are just cute dies I layered together without any paper piecing.

                       

    • Adhesive Sheet, 3 X 4, Die cut the two background flowers and the large leaves background from the sheet.  Place the die on the side that is NOT shiny when you cut.
    • Cherry Cobbler:  4 X 2 1/2, die cut two large flowers and the little flower with the detailed dies; adhere to the adhesive sheet background
    • Flirty Flamingo:  4 X 2 1/2, die cut two large flowers and the little flower with the detailed die;
      • NOTE:  Layer a piece of dryer sheet underneath the cardstock of the large flower detail dies before cutting; after cutting use tweezers to pick each inside piece off the dryer sheet and place on the adhesive backgrounds
    • Layer the little flowers, no paper piecing with these, with a bit of the Cherry Cobbler peeking out from the Flirty Flamingo little flower
  • Leaves:
    • Garden Green, 2 1/2 X 2,  Die cut with the detailed triple leaf die and the little leaf die; place the triple leaves on the adhesive background cut from the adhesive sheet shown above
    • Granny Apple Green, 2 1/2 X 2,  Use a dryer sheet underneath your cardstock and die cut with the detailed triple leaf die and the little leaf die
    • Layer the little leaves, no paper piecing with these, with a bit of the Garden Green peeking out for a layer to the Granny Apple Green little leaf
  • Flower Stamens: (sounds more scientific than the ‘inside of the flowers’) Daffodil Delight, 3 X 2 1/2, place the cardstock on a dryer sheet before die cutting
  • Inside Stamping:
    • Mount your large flower stamp from Shaded Summer on the Stamparatus and color your stamp with MARKERS in Cherry Cobbler and Granny Apple Green, then stamp the top left edge of the inside
    • Color in the flower image with Flirty Flamingo marker
  • Embellishments:  9″ Cherry Cobbler Twine, 5 Rhinestones

What if I don’t have double back adhesive sheets?

Good question, Sal.  In that case you would cut the background pieces from a Basic White sheet, apply glue to the background pieces and then adhere your pieces starting with the color you want on the outside.

Start your bouquet at the left edge by gluing down the little leaves, then glue the little flower directly down.  Here’s another conundrum – dimensionals don’t stick to the adhesive backing so if you want to pop them up, as I did here, you need to cut some of the larger dimensionals in half and place them where the cardstock shows through and not remove the adhesive backing sheet.  I positioned the two flowers where I wanted them without gluing them down so I could place the triple leaf correctly.  The leaf adhesive backing can be removed for a nice flat mounting.  When it was mounted, I then mounted the two flowers.

I would love to see the colors you come up with in Paper Piecing using the Summer Shadows Dies!  Post a picture in the comments below.

Thank you for sharing your precious time with me today!

 

SAL,   Share A Love

 

 

 

 

Shaded Summer Partial Die Cut & Shadow Stamping

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

Why didn’t you just run the ribbon under the top layer? 

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
  • Tools:
    • Summer Shadow Dies – Free during Sale A Bration with a $100 purchase
    • 3/8″ Circle Punch, pencil, ruler, scissors
    • Stamparatus
    • 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:

  1. Temporarily glue DSP Top Layer flush to the right hand side of front card base.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Pencil a line with a ruler, 1″ over from right hand side.  You will line the cutting plates up on this penciled line.
  5. Make your standard sandwich on the cutting machine with the platform #1, and #2, and then the #3 cutting plate.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Die cut the images and then fussy cut the sides and middle.
  9. 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:

  1. 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.
  2. Clean off the stamps and then ink them up with Craft White ink and stamp several times.
  3. Move the card just slightly to the right.
  4. Clean off the white ink and reink with Evening Evergreen .
  5. Stamp several times.
  6. Mount the inside greeting on a separate Stamparatus plate and repeat steps 2-5.
  7. When you attach your Evening Evergreen layer make sure it is positioned where the inside stamping doesn’t show.

You make it sound really easy!

It is, Sal, and the DSP does the rest of the work to make a beautiful card!

Thank you for being with me for this card demonstration.  If you don’t have a demonstrator I would love to have a chance to bring a pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world!  I have clubs and events and a group of Carin’ Crafters that make up my team.  Check out my calendar and join us if you can, or gather your own group of friends and host a workshop to see if they might want to start a club.  For club – I provide all the kits and members commit to a $25-$50 order depending on the number of members.  For example our club of five commits to $30 each club so that the hostess reaches $150 in sales and earns free products.  Contact me at 303-815-0838 to learn more.
