I barely knew you, “Humming Along.” I got this stamp set at OnStage in November and only used it a couple of times. I did really like the “Wishing You An Amazing Birthday” stamp in it. This card layout was designed to use up some of my Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper (DSP) but I think it is a little bold to include too much of it so a 2″ strip it is.
Check out my other blogs posts using Humming Along here.
I’m still using items from the make & take packet I talked about on Tuesday, maybe I post a picture of my bins and piles of partially made items sometime. My husband is always complaining that he can’t sit on the futon in the office because I’ve covered it with projects. I’ll get to them, eventually. 🙂 Anyone else have this problem?
This card is based on one Rachel did with the make & take supplies. I scored the backside of the cardbase at 5″, 5 1/8″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/2″, 6 5/8″ and 6 3/4″ to create the ridges around the Wood Textures designer series paper. The ridges don’t show up well in the photo but it gives a subtle texture to the card.
Just for context, I was recruited by Cheryl Lee so she is my upline. Cheryl was recruited by Rachel Tessman so she is Cheryl’s upline and my second upline. Rachel was recruited by Susan Campfield so she is Rachel’s upline and my third upline. Confusing… probably.
Anyway….Susan and Rachel host Demos Galore and we made this pop out card there.
Susan challenged us to come up with our own pop out card and gave us some supplies we could use. Here is my card which is pretty much using the paper she gave us and adding my own twist on the pop up element.
For the vellum sheets on the front and inside, I covered the back with the adhesive sheets to adhere. The pop out panels are die cut using the rectangle framelits and the leaf punch is tucked behind.
The card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″, and 8 1/4″. The belly band is 1/2″ x 12″ and scored at 2 1/2″ and 4″. The pop up is attached to the fold using two 1/2″ punched circles folded in half.
I decided to play with the Brusho crystals to watercolor the flower from the Humming Along Cling Stamp Set. First I stamped the flower on watercolor paper using VersaMark and clear embossing powder. I then used a mask and stamped and embossed two more times. I tapped out some of the crystals into a palette and added water to use for my watercoloring. The sentiment may have been better on it’s own banner but I kinda like it like this because I can see the flower through it.
