1. Print out template at 100% 2. With pencil, trace heart template onto vellum paper. Be sure to indicate the fold lines with dashed lines
3. Cut out hearts on solid lines with your paper snips.
4. Using fold line indicators (dashed lines), score with bone folder and fold. 5. Erase pencil marks.
You can stamp your images now or wait. In this tutorial, I waited to see where all the fold lines were so I knew where to stamp without the image being folded.
6. fold two of the hearts into themselves.
This is what it will look like all folded.
Here is a top view of the folded pocket
I stamped images being aware of which heart will be adhered to the side of the card.
(The two hearts that are not folded in half will be adhered to the sides.)
See how I've adhered the two sides that were not folded.
Then I punched a whole bunch of hearts using the heart to heart punch and added them for confetti to the inside.
Here you can see where I've adhered the sides to the card itself.
I used the three heart stamp in the Love You Much stamp set and stamped it all around using the Riding Hood Red creating a background. I stamped some hearts onto Whisper White. I punched out one set of hearts with the heart to heart punch and adhered these on top of some of the hearts on the base card with dimensionals.
I cut a piece of Riding Hood Red and a smaller piece of Candy Cane designer series paper, layered these onto my base Pink Pirouette card.
I stamped the hugs & kisses stamp in Riding Hood Red on Whisper White card stock. I stamped it again on Pink Pirouette.
I punched the hugs & kisses image out with the scallop circle punch. Then I cut out the heart in the middle of the other image that I stamped on the Pink Pirouette. I layered this onto the Whisper White version.
I applied mono adhesive to the ribbon and adhered it to the card, adhering the scallop circle with dimensionals.
I hope you like it! Most of the supplies are from the Love You Much Bundle. Love You Much stamp set, Heart to Heart punch and the Candy Cane Designer Series paper. Right now get the three products together for 20% off the price if purchased separately.
I'm back with the tutorial I promised for the pop-up portion of the Tequila Sunrise card. I had to re-make sections in order to properly "demonstrate" it for you!
Supplies: 1-3/4" Circle Punch Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive Card Stock (your choice of colors)* Paper Snips
Tip: Be sure you use the same color as the inside of your card, so that the pop-up blends!
Step 1 Punch out two circles
(or more if you wish)
Step 2 Using your Paper Snips, cut both your cirlces in a spiral, all the way to the end.
You can do three circle punches for three spirals, to make your card more interesting.
This is how it will look like when you're done cutting. It looks like an apple or orange peel, right?! Hmm, I must be hungry.
I'm still on this diet, and I can't have fruit yet so don't mind me! I've lost 33 lbs so far, so I'm very pleased!! Just another 11 more to go!
Step 3 Put adhesive on one end of spiral and adhere to inside of card, let it dry.
See the cirlced areas for where I applied the adhesive. Then put adhesive on the other end of the spiral, and close card. Let it dry for a little bit. This way the "spring" will open and close properly.
Do the same for the second circle punch spiral.
Step 6 Add your "accessories" using a little bit of adhesive.
Optional: In my example, instead of doing a third spiral I did a standalone pop-up. I took another 1-3/4" circle punch, folded it in half, cut two parallel slits, folded the "tab" out and adhered my drink onto it. The tab will fold down with the drink.
Well, it's that time. Time for me to start showcasing my pieces for my favorite holiday, Halloween. I came up with this project for a demonstrator newsletter that I'm being showcased in. I call it my Spooky Tree Display and scrapbook page.
This piece is a dual purpose piece. Use it as the display before and for Halloween and use it for a scrapbook page after the holiday! How's that for being creative?!
Stampin’ Supplies Pencil Basic Black Card Stock 8.5 x 11” 2 pieces Gable Green Card Stock 12 x 12” 1 piece White Vellum Paper 1 piece Pumpkin Pie Card Stock 8.5 x 11” 1 piece Chills & Thrills Rub-ons Halloween Frights Frightful Fence Wheel Jumbo Wheel Handle Stazon Jet Black Ink VersaMark Hobby Blade Paper Snips Dotto Optional: Big Shot Pumpkin #4 die Votive candle holder & votive candle (In the example I used a red votive)
Preparation: Print out provided tree form template.
Email me for template. Choose the images you wish to appear in the windows (if at all) whether they are rub-ons or stamps.
Cut out tree form template with either Hobby Blade or Paper Snips. Then trace with pencil onto a piece of Basic Black card stock.
Using your Paper Snips cut out the tree form following your pencil marks. Don’t worry if you don’t cut exactly on the lines, bumps will add character to the design and make yours unique!
Take a piece of the White Vellum paper, lay it under your cut out window pane. Trace with pencil the outlines of the window areas. This will help you position the rub-ons and stamps correctly. Set the tree form aside.
Cut the vellum a bit smaller than the window panes.
Choose the rub-ons and or stamp sets you wish to fill up your windows If you choose rub-ons cut out all the images you wish to use.
Position your rub-ons, and or stamp the images with Stazon in the windows. Set aside.
Be sure window art is dry. Then adhere the vellum image side up to the back of the tree form window frame using Dotto, to easily reposition, if needed. Set aside.
Ink up the Frightful Fence wheel using VersaMark.
Roll wheel across the Basic Black Card stock. Set aside to dry.
Using a Hobby Blade cut out the
Frightful Fence following your VersaMarked image as a guide. The gate
will lay against tree stand.
Cut a slit from the base of the tree trunk up an inch and a half.
From the scraps cut a strip of Basic Black Card stock 1.5” x 5.75” for your stand.
Optional: Add door to front of window (so window is shadow of door).
Score 1/8” in by hinge and adhere with mono adhesive to window frame in the lower right corner.
After Halloween you could use it as a component of a scrapbook page.
• Use Big Shot and Pumpkin #4 for the Pumpkin on base of tree. • Embellish with text and your own pictures. • Enlarge the template making the window panes larger and display Halloween pictures inside
I'll have the kit, which contains all the consumables available for purchase!
I always get comments on variations I've made of this card (pictured left). So by popular demand here's a tutorial. The card pictured to the right is my most recent variation. It's an easy to make card...
Supplies you'll need:
Large Oval Punch
1" Circle Punch
Sponge Dauber (or Stamping Sponges cut into small triangles)
Outlaw DSP (Designer Series Paper)
So Saffron Card Stock
Close to Cocoa Card Stock (scrap is fine)
Chocolate Chip Classic Stamp Pad
Cutter Kit (or bone folder for scoring)
It's Your Birthday (or other sentiment set)
Cut 8-1/2 x 11" So Saffron Card Stock to 5-1/2 x 4-1/4" score in middle. Set aside.
Cut 12 x 12" Designer Series Paper to 5-1/4 x 4" Set aside.
Punch 6 Ovals from remaining So Saffron Card Stock. These are your petals.
Punch 1 circle out of Close to Cocoa Card Stock with circle punch.
Using a Ruler and scoring tool, eyeball center of "petals" and score down middle of each.
Using Stamping Dauber lightly tap on Chocolate Chip ink pad. Lightly daub from top to bottom of petal, giving a shadow. Do this for all 6 petals. Fold petals in half for depth.
Arrange petals to form partial flower. Using Mono Adhesive "tack" the petals together. Then adhere them to Designer Paper so that part of the flower goes off the paper. Adhere flower center. Cut off the excess.
Stamp sentiment onto bottom right of Designer Paper. Adhere to So Saffron Card Stock. You're all done!
