Hello Stampers ~
Today I am sharing with you a project that my attendee’s made at my annual Spring Retreat. You will need: Cardstock, Paper Cutter, Simply Score (or use your score blade on your cutter) Fav Stamp Set, Designer Paper and border punch to embellish and Sticky Strip to hold it all together. Now you can create this cute project… great for teachers, friends, and more.
You’ll begin with an 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock (we used Island Indigo). Trim 1/4″ off the 8-1/2″ side, bringing it down to 8-1/4″ x 11. Score at 5-1/5″ then 5-3/4″.
Simply Score 122334 Flowering Flourishes
To design the front we stamped the top with the “Flowering Flourishes” stamp set. Then we used “Comfort Cafe” Designer Series Paper … embellished using Pool Party cardstock and the “Scallop Trim Border Punch”.
To create the pocket, start with a 5 x 4-1/4″ piece of cardstock (Pool Party). With your Simply Score, you will score 1/4″ then at 1/2″ on 3 sides. Trim out the corners where the score lines over lap. Then fold cardstock at the score lines to create a pocket. You will “sticky strip” the outer most scored fold.
You will use your sticky strip to adhere your tablet to your project as well. Don’t forget to add a strip of Designer Series Paper into your pen so you have a matching set.
I’d love to hear who you will be creating this cute project for.
Have fun and Happy Stampin’
Today’s post is great “Man Card”… done by guest stamper and my upline Vicki Towell.
When I saw this fish in the “By the Tide” stamp set in the Spring Catalog, I just had to have it. I knew the fish would make great man cards, not to mention the rest of the set which would create an awesome scrapbook page.
The background is stamped with VersaMark™ onto Crumb Cake cardstock. The fish “popped” up with the Stampin’ Dimensionals are stamped in Chocolate Chip (with coordination cardstock used as card back). Just a touch from the White Gel Pen is what brought the eyes to life. Don’t forget to brush on some “Crystal Effects” onto the shell!
You’ll find the greetings from the “One in a Million” stamp set in the 2012-13 Idea Book & Catalog on page 135.
Back to the Spring Catalog for the beautiful embellishments added to the card … Basic Designer Buttons and Natural Trim Ribbon both found on page 20.
