Hey everyone, happy Thursday! I hope your week is going well. Today’s project is a look at 3 different style of cards, two created with one piece of DSP. One of my downline shared the card with me, said she saw it on a YouTube video and I fell in love with it! It is from the Kitchen Table Stamper, and you can watch her video here. Were you able to watch my Facebook Live this morning creating my third take on the card? If not, you cant catch the replay on my YouTube Channel here.
I started by creating the first cased (copy and share everything) card almost exactly like her card. Here’s a look at that card:
Here are the measurements for this card (same measurements on all 3 sets of cards):
- Card base in Basic Black card stock cut at 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Basic White cardstock cut 2 for each card at 4″ x 5 1/4″
- Celebrate Everything (for this card) and Gingham Cottage DSP’s 1 per set cut at 4″ x 3 1/2″ and 1/2″ x 4″ for the inside
To create these cards, you want to make sure you pick a pattern that doesn’t have a one-way pattern as the piece of DSP, meaning that it can only face one way. I started by stamping the sentiments form the Pansy Patch stamp set in Garden Green on the lower right hand corners of the front layers. Next I chose my DSP from the Celebrate Everything DSP pack. I went with the stripes to look like Marisa’s card. Once I cut it to the measurements, using a ruler, I measured on the left side of the DSP (sitting with the 4″ wide) down to 1 1/4″ and made a tic mark with a pencil. Then on the right hand side, I measured down to 2 1/4″ and made a tic mark. Next, I lined up the tic marks on the trimmer and cut the DSP in half. I then attached each half to one of the stamped layers. I added some Stampin’ Seal to the back of the layer and tucked in some of the Black And White Gingham Ribbon and then attached it to the card front. Next I stamped the tea cup in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, the leaf in Garden Green, the little flowers in Daffodil Delight, and then die cut them with the coordinating dies. I colored the leaves with my Black Stampin’ Blends Markers, added a little adhesive to the back to attach the leaf and then added it to the card front with dimensionals. The little flowers are attached with Mini Glue Dots. I then punched out two daisies for each card with the Medium Daisy punch, attached them together with Mini Glue Dots and then add to the card with a dimensional. The center is a piece of retired black glimmer paper punched with a retired 3/8″ circle punch and attached with a Mini Glue Dot. I tied a bow in the ribbon and added it with a Mini Glue Dot. Here’s a look at the inside:
Here’s a look at the second version using the Cottage Gingham and the Hello Ladybug set. The wings are punched out of the Real Red Glimmer Paper and I stamped the leaf and fussy it cut with my snips.
And the inside:
The card I created during the live was created with a Starry Sky card base, more of the Cottage Gingham DSP and some White Glitter Ribbon. I colored the ribbon in Starry Sky ink with a Blending Brush and some of the White Glitter Paper in Daffodil Delight. I used the Lovely You stamp set for the sentiments, which is stamped in Parakeet Party ink, but I think they would have looked better in Starry Sky ink. The daisies are stamped in Starry Sky ink, stamped off, with a stamp from the Hello Ladybug set. Don’t you just love it when you can use multiple items from different sets and everything coordinates??? And I used the Bough Punch for the leaves in Parakeet Party cardstock. I used my Dark Starry Night Stampin’ Blends to color some rhinestones for my bling.
Here’s a look at the inside:
All of the envelopes were decorated on the flaps with coordinating DSP. What’s nice about that is you only need a 2 1/4″ x 12″ strip of the DSP to decorate 2 envelopes! Now that you’ve seen this in 3 versions, what do you think? Isn’t it a fun technique? I bet your mind is going now!! lol
I hope I was able to inspire you today. I know everyone has their own little niche in life, I am pretty sure mine is casing. My mind doesn’t work on creating 3D items, and I really can create my own designs, but casing is sooooo much fun when you find something that you really like!
