So with this suite, I did 2 cards, one for a beginner stamper with just paper & ink and one for an advanced fun folding on the Designer Paper. I also created a project which I cased from Wendy Lee. I have a video to go with it. Let’s get to crafting!
The first card is 8 1/2″x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on Thick Whisper White (Basic White) card stock. I used Poppy Parade and Mossy Meadow ink pads. This stamp set is a 2-step process and very easy to do. I stamped two of the main flowers (using the stamp-off method) next to each other and then stamped the details on them using full strength ink. Then I used Mossy Meadow ink to stamp the leaves. I stamped a sentiment in Poppy Parade in the lower-left corner. Very simple card!
The second card is a little more advanced and I cased part of it from Frenchy! I used Mossy Meadow card base 8 1/2″x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″. I had a piece of Whisper White at 5 1/4″x4″, ran that through the Painted Texture embossing folder and adhered with Seal to the card base. Next I had a fine Art Floral Designer paper at 10″x5″, on the long side you score every 1″ 1/2″ 1″ 1/2″ all the way across. Then make a mark at 4 1/2″ and 5 1/2″ at the top & bottom. Turn DSP on short end and make a mark at 2″ and 3″ top & bottom. Take your trimmer and use these marks to trim a triangle off each side. you should end up with a trapezoid shape almost. Starting at the center, fold in then out all the way to either side. on the half-inch sections apply a little seal or liquid glue to hold them down. Apply a 6″ piece of ribbon across the center with seal. On scrap Whisper White stamp your flower with leaves and use Layering Ovals scalloped to cut out. Stamp your sentiment and use the floral gallery dies to cut it out with the long scalloped rectangle. Adhere the Oval shape to the card with dimensionals and use Seal to adhere the sentiment just below the flower. Adhere a whisper white 5 1/4″x 4″ inside for your sentiment and you are finished!
The Project is a caddy for your supplies to be right at hand and not all over the place. You can see I had a little trouble with mine, but if you use glue to adhere you shouldn’t have any trouble at all. the boxes are all made the same way, so I am going to give you sizes and cuts. It will take a sheet & half of 8 1/2″x11″ card stock: 1 Piece is 8 1/4″x 6 1/2″ scored on the long side at 4 1/4″ & 5 1/4″ turn and score at 1″ on both sides. 2nd piece is 6″x 5″ scored on the long side at 3″ & 4″ turn and score at 1″ on both sides. 3rd piece is 6″ x 3 1/4″ scored on the long side at 1″ & 2 1/4″ turn and score at 1″ on both sides.
You will cut tabs on each piece with a wedge cut and tear tape on the front side, flip and tear tape both short panels with 2 strips. Do this to each piece. Your designer paper is cut 3/4″ strip, the cut 2@ 2 3/4″ and 2@ 1 3/4″ then cut DSP at 2 3/4″x 1 3/4″ for the middle box and 1″x 1 3/4″ for the smallest box. Adhere the 2 3/4″ strips to the largest box sides. Adhere 1 of the 1 3/4″ to the left side of the middle box and the right side of the smallest box. Now it is time to put the boxes together. Tabs are first, remove the backing and adhere to the inside of the tallest sides. Then remove the backing and adhere side panels over that. This is where the multipurpose glue comes in, you will want to use it so you have room to wiggle when adhering the two smaller boxes to the bigger one.
Those are my cards & project, I hope you have a wonderful day crafting!
