I cannot believe it is a month since I was in Orlando Florida at Stampin’ UP!’s annual get-together for demonstators, celebrating our 30th anniversary, Where did that month go?
One of the traditions of our OnStage event is to make cards and swap with other talented demonstrators – so to give us a little break from Christmas themes I though I would share my swap, the theme being ‘Celebration’. There is a perfect ‘celebration’ greeting in the Perennial Birthday Stamp set and as I was going to make quite a few cards I used the image stamps to create my own decorative paper.
Card base:8 ½ x 5 ½ Powder Pink Card ~ scored @ 2”, 3 ⅛, 5⅜ & 6 ½
- 1 piece 5 ¼ x 2 Fresh Fig Card
- 2 pieces 5 ¼ x 1 ¾ Fresh Fig Card
- 5 ¼ x 2 Whisper White Card – for the back of center panel to write your message
Ink Colors: Fresh Fig, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink , Tranquil Tide and Sahara Sand ~ these are the 2017 – 2019 In-color selection isn’t it fantastic they all work together!
I started by taking a piece of Whisper White Card and stamped randomly over it with the different images and ink colors. I find it best to start with the larger images then go down the sizes in order doing the smallest one last. Once I had all my colors in I went over the entire piece of card randomly stamping with the ‘dotty’ image in Sahara Sand ink which filled in some of the white. Then I cut the piece of card into the sizes I needed ~
- 1 piece 5 x 1 ¾
- 2 pieces 5 x 1 ½
The side panels are adhered together using Multipurpose Liquid glue then the center panel popped up on 4 -5 Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really love the fold – and included one in the November Card Class to Go.
The greeting is stamped in Fresh Fig ink and cut with 1 1/2 circle punch, then layered onto Fresh Fig cut with 1 3/4 circle punch, again all popped up on a couple of Stampin Dimensionals
