The layout for this graduation card is from this weeks Stamping 411 challenge. The sentiment is from A Word for You stamp set and I used a stamp from Teeny Tiny Wishes on the ribbon. I used the photo corners punch for the gown collar and the candles from the cupcake punch for the yellow stripes. The diploma is a curled modern label secured with a piece of ribbon.
Woodland Walk wasn't my favorite DSP but it's starting to grow on me. I cut a circle from "her" card to use on "his" card. I also used paper flowers, a fabric brad and the scallop edge punch. On the masculine card I used a variety of circle punches then embossed the card front with the square embossing folder.
As promised, here's a video showing how to make the slider card I posted last week. I used a cupcake on this sample so I could enter it in the So Shelli Challenge. I got the color combo from the Color Coach; Melon Mambo, Wild Wassabi and Pacific Point. Other Stampin' Up products; Cup Cake Sizzlet, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Round Tab Punch and the Create a Cupcake stamp set. Scroll down for the how-to video.
You can't go through March without making at least one green card. This one fits into the Stamping Celebration challenge and the March challenge on SCS. This card uses the Woodland Walk DSP. The wagon is from More Monkey Accessories stamp set. The flower is from the Itty Bitty punch pack.
I'm finding it difficult to find old posts on my blog even when I know where to look so I'm adding some new categories and some key words to make searching quicker and easier. This will take some time so you'll have to excuse the empty categories listed on the side while I'm working on it.
I'm planning to list some of the punches and dies that might be hard to recognize as well as some occasions. Any other suggestions for categories?
Here’s a simple slider I made for the Creative Crew Challenge on SCS. It still opens like a regular card. I cut a 2 ¼” slit in the card front . The slider is 2” wide and 8 ½” long. Fold it in half then put it through the slit. The fold prevents the slider from pulling all the way out and the tab at the top keeps it from going down too far. I cut a 4” x 5 ¼” mat and cut a 1 ½” x 2” window in the center to hide the slider.
The girl is from the All in the Family stamp set. I stamped her at the very top of a scrap of white card stock then tucked it behind the window. The sentiment and crown are stamped on the slider.
I just bought a new camera and I’m not having much luck with it but I’ll see if I can get a video posted when I get a chance.
