3D Artisan Label Flower Card

The Artisan Label Punch has such interesting edges that I decided to make a flower using it.  I will be making a video soon to show you how to make this fun little flower.

1.  Cut your Very Vanilla card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Modern Medley Designer Series Paper at 2″ x 5-1/2″  Adhere to card front about 1/4″ from the bottom.
3.  Cut your 7/16″ Trim at 5-1/2″.  Adhere above Modern Medley DSP with SNAIL.
4.  Stamp the Four Frames and desired Teeny Tiny Wishes sentiment in StayzOn Black.  Puch out with Decorative Label Punch.  Sponge around the edges using Crisp Cantaloupe ink.  Place Dimensionals on the back.  Set aside.
5.  Punch seven Artisan Labels from Crisp Cantaloupe card stock.  Sponge the edges with Calypso Coral ink if desired.  Cut six Labels in half through the smooth center.  Cut from each decorative edge to the center to form a triangle.  This will form one petal.  Use your bone folder to curl each petal.  Use your bone folder to slightly curl the edges of the whole Artisan Lable piece.  This will form your flower base.  Place a curled petal along one edge of the flower base and another just opposite.  Adhere all Petals with a Glue Dot.  Now place two petals going the other direction on top of the first layer of petals.  The next layer will go the same direction as the first layer.  You can trim the center portions if desired.  Continue placing petals until you have just one left.  Make small cuts along the top edge.  Roll it up slightly and attach to center of top petals with a glue dot.  Fluff flower if desired.
6.  Place sentiment label and flower in desired positions.  Adhere label with Dimensionals.  Adhere flower with either Glue Dots or a Demensional.
7.  Place Candy Dots in the top two corners of card.
8.  Hand deliver this card or put it in a package so it won’t get smashed.

I will have a new service available on August 1st.  More details coming soon.

Happy Stamping!

Stamp-a-ma-jig Video

Watch this video!I use my Stamp-a-ma-jig quite a bit to perfectly position my sentiments and Two-Step stamps.  It can seem tricky to use, but after trying it out a couple of times you will get results like a Pro!  Have fun using your Stamp-a-ma-jig to help you make this card.

On a personal note:  I seem to have too many irons in too many fires lately.  I may not be able to continue to do a video every week.   I will still try to do a couple of videos a week.  I know I am a visual learner and it is easier for me when I see something done.  I have been working at the Family History Center more (almost every week)-which is fun too and I have a more demanding calling in my Church.  As a result it has been harder to keep up with my home and family.  I will still continue to post projects at least 3 days a week and the My Digital Studio downloads on Tuesday.

Daisy Card in White and Daffodil Delight and Envelope

I have been in the mood for flowers lately so I decided to use my Daisy #2 die.  This is another quick and easy card.  I also tested out the envelope instructions that come with the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate.  Another quick and easy thing to make.  And to think I thought making envelopes was difficult.  Not so with the new Diagonal Plate.

  Cut Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Emboss Framed Tulips on Daffodil Delight card stock.  Trim around raised frame line.  Adhere to card front with SNAIL.
3.  Use the Daisy #2 die and your Big Shot and die cut the Daisies twice.  If you position them right you can cut out both from a half sheet of card stock.
4.  Take the 2 largest Daisies and off-set the petals so they are evenly spaced.  Adhere with a small bit of SNAIL or mini glue dots in the center by the hole.  Fluff up petals with fingers.  Repeat with the medium and small daisies.  Adhere them all together, centering from the back by looking inside the holes.  Thread the ribbon through the button holes and tie a knot.  Adhere to center of Daisy with 2-3 mini glue dots.
5.  Stamp the desired image in Daffodil Delight.   Stamp sentiment in Night of Navy.  (I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to help me get it in the desired position.)  Punch out with Decorative Label punch.
6.  Lay out Daisy and Four Frames Label in desired positions.  Adhere Label with Dimensionals.  Adhere Daisy with SNAIL or mini glue dots.
7.  Admire your bright Spring card!

Daisy Envelope in White and Daffodil Delight

  Cut Daffodil Delight card stock in a 7-3/4″ square.
2.  Place Diagonal Plate onto Simply Scored Tool with arrow facing upper ruler.  (I colored the top of the upper left corner of the Diagonal Plate with a Sharpie where it touches the corner so I won’t have to keep looking on the back for the arrow.)
3.  Now the fun begins!  Place your 7-3/4″ square card stock in the upper left corner of the Diagonal Plate.  Score at 4-1/2″ on the side ruler and then the top ruler.  You will be making 2 separate score lines that are evenly spaced diagonally.
4.  Turn your card stock 1/4 turn (either direction is fine).  Now score at 3-1/8″ along the side ruler then the top ruler.  You now have four scored lines which form a rectangle in the center.
5.  You will see 4 small triangles where the score lines cross.  Remove these small triangles with either scissors or a square punch.  Fold all score lines.  You can trim the one flap that sticks up in the center of the card if desired.  You can also use a corner rounder punch on the top flap.  Adhere the center flap with either Sticky Strip or Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
6.  Stamp as desired.  I used the Mixed Bunch stamp to go with the Daisy on my card.
7.  Insert card after you have filled out the inside and signed it and inserted any other items such as cash or a gift card if desired.  Seal envelope shut with SNAIL or Tombow making sure to leave the straight portion at the top of the flap free of adhesive so they can slide in a letter opener or knife and get the card back out.  Smile

Happy Stamping!
