Shabby Chic with Very Versailles

When I first saw this stamp set, I thought it would be perfect for a shabby chic or collage style card with lots of inking. For this card, I stamped the script background a few times on a piece of Thick Very Vanilla in Crumb Cake and then added more ink to the background using a make up brush. The leaf image was stamped with Early Espresso. I die cut the frame using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies and popped it up. For a final touch, I die cut the large flourish from the Flourish dies out of the Petal Pink vellum. I embellished the sides with the Woven Threads Trim and popped up the middle panel. To get just the tassels from the trim, pull out the thread holding them together.

Mountain Air

I finally broke out my Mountain Air stamp set and coordinating Majestic Mountains Dies. I stamped the tree line in Mossy Meadow ink on Mossy Meadow cardstock and then again using Versamark ink and clear embossing powder. I found it a challenge to line up the die for the tree line so next time I may die cut it first and then stamp. The mountains are stamped in Versamark on Smoky Slate and embossed in white. I inked the background with Balmy Blue and Night of Navy. Once I put the card together, I decided to splatter some Frost White Shimmer Paint on it for stars…I forgot to protect the mountains and the trees so a shimmer spritz to the rescue again. πŸ™‚ Also the moon is Basic Gray ink on Basic Gray cardstock and punched out with the 1″ circle punch to hide a splotch of paint that was too big.

Last Chance for Lovely Lily Pad

Today is the last chance for ordering the Coordination products and for earning FREE Sale-a-Bration items!

I finally pulled out the Shimmery White Embossing Paste and my Basic Pattern Decorative Masks and made the background I used on this card. It’s much more sparkly in person than I can photograph.

I used the Stamparatus to stamp the images with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. The lily is watercolored using Grapefruit Grove and Lovely Lipstick. The lily pad is watercolored using Call Me Clover. After watercoloring, I again used my Stamparatus to stamp the images using Versamark and embossed with white.

Little Ladybug

There are only a few days left of Sale-a-Bration so I thought I’d better ink up my Little Ladybug stamp set at least once before it’s gone. I stamped the flower on Pear Pizzazz and die cut it. I then stamped on So Saffron using So Saffron and then using Crushed Curry dabbed on the center using a sponge dauber. I die cut the flower and place it over the Pear Pizzazz one. The ladybug was a challenge for me. I’m very critical of my coloring skills and I didn’t like how it looked using the blends or the watercolor pencils, so I stamped on Real Red and Smoky Slate and cut them out to layer on the one I colored.

Triangle Trifold Twist Card

Last summer Susan Campfield showed us how to make this Triangle Trifold Twist card and I just made one. I colored the inside bird using the Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I also sprayed it with my Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol in a mister to try to match the specialty paper.

You need two pieces of cardstock that are 4″ x 10 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″. On the smaller section, measure 4″ in and make a mark. Score from that mark to the corner. You do this on both pieces then you adhere the 5 1/2″ pieces together like below making sure the front triangles come together. I would recommend liquid glue to allow some wiggle room.

Interlocking Fun Fold Card

I follow Sam at Mixed Up Craft and she did a Beautiful Double Concertina Inter-Lock Card. I made a version of this that is 4″ x 5 1/2″ so it can fit into an A2 envelope. I also added a couple extra score lines so you can see the squares on the inside.

Rocco Rose Cardstock5 ½” x 8”; scored at 4”
5 ½” x 8 ½”; scored at ½”, 4”
3” X 12”; scored at ½”, 2”, 5”, 6”, 7”, 10”, 11 ½”

The Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper and Very Vanilla cardstock are cut 1/8″ smaller than the scored section. The 8″ piece of Rocco Rose is the left section and the extra ½” from the right side is glued on the backside.

I used the third from smallest of the bigger rectangles to make the openings.

I used my ruler to center it on the panel like I did the first one.
