I've been having fun with Lawn Fawn's let it roll stamp set. Yesterday I made a shaker card using the sushi stamps and sequins from Doodlebug. I used scraps that I had lying around my craft table for the card base.
These colors make me happy!
I've had some requests for a tutorial on the card that I posted on the post below. So here goes and I hope I can explain it so you can follow along. I saw a video on Stephanie Barnard's you tube channel showing how she used a stand up die set called "elegant stand up"and made it into a gatefold card. This is what the die looks like.
Cut 2 pieces of card stock - 8 1/2" x 5 3/8". Place base die faced down on your cutting pad and weave the paper through the part of the die that has the part that will flip up. Make sure that you place the paper over the bottom of the die and not under because you don't want it to cut through where it supposed to cut. Instead, it will make a slight fold line. And make sure that you stop the opposite end of the paper where it supposed to make a score line. Do not go beyond that line. Center it well. Cut each piece separately. Do not cut both pieces together as it will cut through the scored part of the card.
This is what your cut piece will look like after you fold it on the fold line.
You can also use one of the die pieces to cut a piece of paper to layer on the side of the card.
Glue the 2 middle sections together, one piece on top of the other.
This is what makes the gatefold part. You can also decorate the inside of the card.
Here is how the card looks when you close it.
This is the finished card.
Email me if you have any questions. Hope you have fun making this card!!!
Have a great day!!!
Today was our stamp group get together and it was my turn to do the make & take. I saw on one of Stephanie Barnard's videos that she made a gatefold card out of one of her stand up die sets and I thought I'd do that for the make & take.
I'm not sure why the photos are so bright but I've been noticing lately that when I post on blogger, my photos seem much brighter than it really is. I'll have to play around with it later.
I used Dandelion Designs aloha stamp set to make the card. Patterned paper is from Doodlebug Designs spring fling release.
Here is what the card looks like when it's opened.
And partially opened so you can see how it folds.
Well, today was really hot and muggy and the news said tomorrow will be the same. Hope you're enjoying your weekend and thanks for stopping by!!!
This is the first time that I have used Lawn Fawn stamps & die cuts and I really like the quality of their products. The only problem that I had initially was the stamp wasn't taking the ink so I had to lightly buff the stamp and then it worked.
Making this card helped me take my mind off of getting stuck in a really old elevator today. Ugh! Nothing worst than having to go looking for my shipments in a so called haunted basement. Very creepy and I'm not kidding!
Anyways, back to the card. I used Lawn Fawn "let's roll" stamp and die cut set and Mama Elephant dies to cut the card base.
I love using bright colors, makes me happy! Patterned paper is from My Minds Eye. I used copic markers to color the images. I'm surprised that I still have ink in the markers since its really been awhile that I have used them.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to keep up on my blogging!
While I was waiting for my husband to come home today, I decided to make something with one of the new die releases from Lori Whitlock for Sizzix. I used the owl favor bag die to make this. I thought it was going to take me longer to make it since there were quite a few pieces to cut, but it took me longer trying to figure out what papers to use and the colors to match it.
It's a really cute bag and I think this would look great in a Halloween theme or Christmas too. You can also use the owl face on a card front or scrapbook page.
I forgot to take a picture of the top of the bag so you can see how wide it is.
If you get a chance, go check out the new dies by Lori Whitlock.
Have a great day!!!
