Donna Griffith showed us how to make these adorable envelopes using the Diagonal Score Plate and Designer Series Paper. I tried several different sizes and thought I'd put them all in a document for easy reference. I have the measurements for 28 different size envelopes that you can download here Download Diagonal Score Plate Envelopes.
If you watched Donna's demonstration you know how easy these are to make. I've put together a video showing how to make a few different size envelopes including the open end style for long cards.
This would be a great card for a Fun Folds class. It's made using the Diagonal Score Plate and some punches. The card base is 11" x 3-3/4" and the fold is scored at 1-7/8". The roof is a 3" square cut in half on the diagonal. If you'd like more details scroll down for the video tutorial
Here's a project using the new Simply Scored Diagonal Scoring Plate (shown in my last post). I won a diagonal scoring plate at leadership so I've had a little bit of time to play with it. I'm hoping to have time to post a few more projects this week. Here's an Envelope Style Card Box I made using the Diagonal Score Plate.
Demonstrators can preorder the new Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored Scoring Tool starting today. If you're not a Stampin' Up demonstrator you can order yours on March 1st. I won the diagonal scoring plate at leadership so I've had some time to play with it. I'll be posting some projects this week but for now check it out on this Stampin' Up video.....
FYI I've had a few people ask if the diagonal score plate will work with other scoring tools. I tried it on my old scor-pal and it doesn't fit. The plate is 12-1/2" square and the scor-pal is 12x12 with a lip on 3 sides. It looks like it might work with the Martha Stewart Scoring Tool but I can't confirm that.
I needed a masculine birthday card. I know I have lots of them made but I can never seem to find one when I need it. Time to reorganize my samples. Here's one I had in my stash. I used vellum and the crimper to make the mug and the oval punch for the centre of the handle but I don't remember what other supplies I used. The sentiment was from the Cheers to You stamp set.
I was inspired by a cool new stamping tool that just came on the market called Stamping Gear. It's a guide that allows you to stamp shapes around an evenly spaced circle. While I don't have a lot of use for large stamped wreaths, I thought the concept was really neat. I used some of my Big Shot dies to make some of my own guides from fun foam. The first photo shows guides for stamping in a straight line. I stuck 5 layers of foam together with Big Shot adhesive then cut it out with the Tasteful Trim die. Each one of the trim pieces gives a different spacing.
I used the Flower Folds die to make a guide for stamping in a circular shape (shown in the photo below). If you want your stamped images closer try using one of the scalloped circles to make a guide.
Well I'm off to play. I'll make some samples to post. See the video below if you need more details.
I had about 50 petal cones left over from the icecream cone swaps I made for convention so I used the new blossom punch to add some flowers and make them into bouquets. The stamp set is Mixed Bunch. I stamped and punched out 3 flowers and attached them to the top of a Whisper White triangle insert I cut to fit inside the cone. The leaves are punched out with the Build a Blossom punch and sponged around the outside. The insert is showing a little in this photo but when its slid into place the bottom of the flowers hang over the edge of the cone.
I used the 1/2" circle punch to punch out Daffodil card stock for the flower centres and sponged the edges with Artichoke Ink.
