Hello Stampin’ Friends,
I hope those of you who live near me in Wisconsin got a chance to get outside yesterday … what a beautiful day! I also hope you all had a chance to look over the Weekly Deals I posted because today I’m going to share with you a few of those!
I’ve have the cutest card, stampin’ tips & techniques that you’ll flip over! Let’s begin with the front of the card. I used Melon Mambo for my flip card and the “Label Card” Thinlit die – one of our weekly deals … Sweet!
Speaking of sweet, I paired the Melon Mambo with the “Sweet Taffy” Designer Series paper. I cut the designer paper to fit the inside of my card, then I aligned it within the framelit die to cut out the area that flips.
Now my designer paper is perfectly notched out and has the perfect mambo frame of color around it. The Whisper White pieces for the greetings, were cut with one of the thinlits that are included with the card thinlit … it actually contains 9 dies!
Because I love polka dots and texture … I used the “Perfect Polka Dot” folder to the left side of my lip card. I took a picture of how I just tucked that piece into the folder, then folded the card behind the folder. I did not use any tabs when embossing this folder.
My greeting is from “Yippee Skippee” … also on sale this week! I love this quirky and fun stamp set. I used the black StazOn™ because I like the richness of the black color, and it smells good! LOL
I snuck the little heart from the “Another Thank You” stamp set to add a bit more color to my sentiments.
The third item from the Weekly deals list that I am using on my card, is the brand NEW “Sweetheart” punch!! I punched it out of the Silver Glimmer paper and dyed it Melon Mambo!
TO DYE: All you need is a sponge dauber … then you can either use the ink pad or the ink refill. I prefer the refill because it’s quicker and I get a darker color quicker. Stampin’ Tip … I dampen the sponge dauber first (not wet) but it really helps spread the ink evenly over the glimmer paper.
Now, for the inside of the card …
I hope you enjoyed today’s card, the stampin’ tips of trimming the designer paper, embossing just a section of a card, and the technique of dying glimmer paper.
I’d love to hear what you think! Thanks so much for following along.
Have yourself a flippin’ awesome day!
