Stampin Up Lattice Cards {Big Shot}

This idea was cased from Connie Collins. I love the look of the Bigz Lattice Die, I just wish it made a bigger piece! In order to make the lattice image span across the entire front of the card, I simply folded my Pear Pizzaz (In Color) card stock in half, placed it on the die, keeping the fold just slightly below the edge of the blades, and ran it through the Big Shot.

I used SNAIL to adhere the lattice design to the Early Espresso base, but you could also use Mini Glue Dots. I cut off the overhang of the lattice design with my paper cutter to give it a really clean look. That was layered onto a wider strip of Whisper White that I used the Scallop Trim Border Punch along the bottom.

The card base is Pear Pizzaz. The sentiment is from Perfect Punches, stamped in Poppy Parade ink and punched out with the Wide Oval Punch. I layered it onto a scalloped Early Espresso circle, made with the Scallop Circle Punch. I added white dots with the Signo Gel Pen and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

This next card reminds me of being in Aruba or Hawaii–it’s very tropical without trying to be. The card base is Whisper White, with a top fold. I used the Square Lattice Embossing Folder to emboss the Tempting Turquoise card stock and adhered it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

Next, I stamped a piece of Crumb Cake (Kraft) card stock with the Woodgrain Background stamp in Crumb Cake ink. That was then put through the Big Shot using the Lattice Bigz Die and attached to the card with Mini Glue Dots.

Underneath, on Chocolate Chip card stock, I stamped “happy” from Happy Everything in Versamark and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I layered that onto a wider strip of Whisper White and with the Paper Piercer, pierced holes along the top and bottom edge before attaching it to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

This picture is terrible but it was late and I was in a rush to get this posted so here it is anyway. The card base is Whisper White and I stamped the sentiment from Heard from the Heart directly onto the base with Early Espresso ink.

Above that, the lattice image was made by running Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot with the Lattice Bigz Die and then sponging it with a mixture of Baja Breeze Reinker and Frost Shimmer Paint. I layered it onto a square of Early Espresso and then a slightly larger square of Baja Breeze card stock. The ribbon is from Valet Originals (retired) but it’s Baja Breeze satin ribbon. All of that was attached to the base with Stampin Dimensionals.

6×6 Scrapbook Page Layout {Welcome Neighbor DSP & Sweet Pea Stitched Felt}

It’s been ages since I’ve made a scrapbook page. I don’t normally make 6×6 Scrapbook Page Layouts, but I had this picture of my daughter on my desk, then I saw this cute patterned paper from Welcome Neighbor, and I just went from there. Since the page is small, I wanted the focus to be on the photo.

The 4″x4″ photo is layered onto a 4 1/4″ square of Old Olive card stock. I then took a 4 1/4″ x 2″ strip of Old Olive and used the Scallop Trim Border Punch to make the scalloped edge, tucking it under the Old Olive photo mat.

In the upper corner, I added Sweet Pea Stitched Felt flowers and leaves, layering them with Glue Dots and attaching it to the page with a large Glue Dot. It gives the page a pop of color and since she’s looking up in that direction in the picture, it was a good place to put the flower.

I kept journaling to a minimum so the focus would be on the picture. The sentiment “Everything grows with love” is from Love Matters (retired–but has many great sayings in handwriting style font). I inked up the different parts of the stamp using the Chocolate Chip and Rose Red Markers, then stamped it onto Very Vanilla using the Stamp-a-majig to get a 2 line setup.

Next, I punched out the Very Vanilla card stock using the Curly Label Punch and sponged the edges using a mixture of Close to Cocoa Reinker and Champagne Shimmer Paint. I just add a drop of Reinker and a drop of Shimmer Paint into an old brad or button container, dip a Sponge Dauber in, and start sponging. This combo makes a really nice Bronze colored shimmery ink, which goes great with the sepia tones in the picture. I attached it to the page using Stampin Dimensionals.

That’s it–pretty simple. I think I like the 6″x 6″ size page for 1 photo layouts. I will be trying more 6″x6″ pages to see what other types of layouts work best. Thanks for stopping by today!
