Square Easel Card with Dashing Deer and the rich Joyous Noel papers

Today I share a card that my ladies made in yesterday’s Christmas class!

It’s an Easel card that measures 4⅛” x 4⅛” when closed. I made it this size so that I could get 2 cards from 1 sheet of card stock.

I stamped the reindeer image and the floral image on the front of the card in Tranquil Tide ink as well as the sentiment on the inside. This is how the card looks when laying flat to fit into an envelope.

The Starburst Punch was used the cut some of the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper behind the deer. Doesn’t it add a gorgeous sparkle?!!

When the card is open and laying flat it looks like this from the front

and this on the inside. You can see the scoreline of the front and how it folds to sit up to display. I placed some Gray Granite card on the inside with a strip of the DSP and some more glimmer paper. The sentiment is stamped and punched out with the Tailored Tag punch and sits on dimensionals so the front of the card forms the Easel!

Birthday, Calendar Card, Stampin' Up!

Easel Calendar Card

Dear Crafters,

Today I share another card using the Sweet Cupcake Bundle but it has been created as more of a gift that the recipient can keep all year long!

I’ve made this card for my husband’s aunt who loves my calendar cards and seeing as her birthday is on 1 December, it is perfect timing to send it to her with the 2017 calendar!

So today I have used the same colour scheme as Monday’s card; Watermelon Wonder, Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White. She wears a lot of orange so I thought this was perfect for her!

The ‘sweet’ is die cut using the Cupcake Cutout Framelits in the Gold Glimmer paper.

The card front is embossed using the Confetti Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Peekaboo Peach & white ovals are die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits.

The icing is a 3-step stamping process using photopolymer stamps, so you can easily line them up. The first layer is So Saffron then Peekaboo Peach before the final layer of Watermelon Wonder. I also used the Clear Wink of Stella over the top for a shiny glazed effect! I stamped a die cut two of these cupcakes, one for the front and one for inside the card!

The mini calendar is placed at the bottom of the inside of the card, as this creates the easel.

Don’t forget to decorate inside your card and stamp on the envelope!

Yesterday’s Craft Class

Hello Stampers,

We had an epic Craft Class yesterday with 4 ladies thoroughly enjoying themselves and we had many many laughs along the way!

Here was the first card that we made ~ a Twisted Easel Tea Light Candle Card.

and don’t fret, the tea light candle is battery operated, so no homes will burn down!!!

The next card we made included a mini calendar and post it note

Then we some spare time at the end and the ladies were having so much fun, they wanted to make another mini calendar card but this time, a smaller one that I created myself. It also folds flat to be able to be mailed!

One of the ladies who attended said “I don’t have a crafty bone in my body” but she was so proud of her achievements and so were the rest of us. So next time I hold a craft class, be sure to come along!

Happy Stamping,

Kate
