Dashing Deer

Dashing Deer Wrapped in Plaid

Hi Everyone, It’s been a couple of days since I posted and I wanted to touch base again. Today’s card is simple and elegant and was our project for class Monday night. Each person’s was a bit different as the various patterns of Wrapped In Plaid DSP made it distinctive.

Here’s the card:

Isn’t it elegant? I like that it has no sentiment on the front, just the simple beauty of the deer.
Here are the deets:
Thick Whisper White CS – 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
Wrapped In Plaid DSP – 4″ x 5 1/4″
Shaded Spruce – 3′ x 4 1/4′
Whisper White – 2 3/4″ x 4″ (cut 2 of these, one for stamping and die cutting the deer), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for the inside.

Instructions:
* Adhere the Wrapped In Plaid DSP to the Whisper White CS.
* Adhere the other Whisper White CS piece to the Shaded Spruce. Add dimensionals to the Shaded Spruce and adhere to the card.
* Stamp the deer in Cherry Cobbler. I used my stamparatus since sometimes I want to ink and stamp the deer again and this makes it so easy to do! Using your favorite die cutting machine, cut out the deer. Place on dimensions, including the legs. Yes, it does mean you have to cut dimensionals apart, but it’s worth it for the stability. Adhere the deer to the card.
* Make a bow and adhere with glue dots. For this card the bow is a non-SU! product, but linen thread could have been used and that would have looked great too.

For the inside I used a scrap from cutting down the 6 x 6 DSP (about 3/4′ x 4″) to the bottom of the additional pice of Whisper White. Stamp your favorite greeting and voila – done!

Triple Fold Card

This is such a fun, fun fold and so easy ~ you will want to make this several times using various DSP just to see what it looks like! This first card is maxed using the Magnolia Lane stamp set and coordinating DSP and was made in one of my card classes. The envelope used the “adorable closed magnolia from the same stamp set. It was colored using stampin’ blends DK and LT Petal Pink. When coloring an envelope with blends, please make sure to have a scrap piece of card stock in the envelope as blends tend to bleed through ~ and you don’t want that!

The card base is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″; same card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″ (score this at 1 1/2″, 3″, 5 1/2″ and 8″, folding accordion style and burnishing the folds) + 2 1/8″ square

Next layer: 4″ x 5 1/14″ (Adhere to card base) + about a 2 1/4″ scalloped square

Coordinating DSP 1 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/4″ x 4″, 2 3/4″ x 4″

* Adhere DSP to appropriate layers of the folded card stock using Tombow glue

* Adhere this to the card base

* Stamp sentiment on 2 1/8″ piece and adhere to scalloped square

* Having the accordion fold in place, adhere this square so that it is centered and 3/8″ from left edge.

Here is a picture of the same card using the Wrapped in Plaid 6 x 6 carfd pack in the new catalogue. I used the Dashing Deer stamp set and So Many Stars stamp set from the Holiday cattie for that adorable star. The square was embellished with Holdiay sequins – yep, from the Holiday cattie! Fun, right?

Remember to decorate your envelopes!

Triple Fold Card

I have been lax in posting… my apologies! However, I have NOT been lying around :o) Making cards or perhaps I should say crafting with paper, are a bit of a passion and I get “lost” in my craft room. What that means is I lose track of time. Kind of crazy, right? Below are a few pictures of my recent creations. Note that not all these projects are cards. Over the course of the next several days, I will try to include directions for these various projects. If you have questions about any item in particular, please feel free to contact me. My email is tlsbrightspot@gmail.com or leave a message on my page.

The upper card is one we made in a card class. It was made with the Magnolia Lane stamp set and coordinating DSP (Designer Series Paper). This is such a fun fold and so easy to do that once I got everything cleaned up and put away from the attendees, I made the green card. This was made with the Wrapped in Plaid DSP (new in the Holiday Catalogue becoming available Sep 4) and Dashing Deer stamp set and that stunning little star from the new So Many Stars stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue.

Here’s another project from the class that I demo’d. It comes from the Magnolia Lane dies. There are three dies for the petals and two for the inner portion. Cut with Whisper White, I daubered with Petal Pink from the inside to the outside of each petal. The flower centers were cut in So Saffron and I sponge daubered the edges only. All pieces were adhered with glue dots. Tombow glue can be used as well, but I chose the glue dots for convenience. Here’s the picture of that sweet flower.

The little box was cut from the Magnolia DSP: 5″ square, scored at 1 1/4′ on all sides. The lid was cut from retired Kraft paper that I had lying around. The leaves were stamped, then colored with the Dk & Lt Old Olive Stampin’ blends., then cut with coordinating dies. The ribbon is from the Magnolia Lane Suite.

Here are a couple of other recent projects: this is also from class and using the Magnolia Lane stamp set. I stamped the gorgeous flower in versamark then embossed with gold. The flower was first inked in with Calypso Coral in the center, then working out used the DK Petal Pink and then Lt Petal Pink in Stampin’ blends. The leaves were inked with Dk and Lt Olive Stampin’ blends. Full details in a later post.

Two more teasers with full info in a future post.
