Square Scallop Lattice Card

Another card I made using the new colors–this time with Marina Mist. The base is Crumb Cake that I die cut with the Big Shot and Bigz Square Scallop Die. Then, I took a 3.5″ x 7″ piece of Whisper White card stock, folded in half, and adhered it to the square scallop. This is the “card” part that opens up.

With the Bigz Lattice Die, I cut Early Espresso card stock, adhered it to a 3″ square of Marina Mist with Mini Glue Dots and layered both onto a 3 1/4″ square of Early Espresso. That was then attached to the Whisper White.

In the center of the lattice, I added 4 pieces of Crumb Cake “scrap” or the negative pieces from running the Lattice Die through the Big Shot with Crumb Cake card stock. Those were adhered with SNAIL adhesive.

Color Renovation for Mom {Mother’s Day Gerbera Daisy Card}

Since I’m a mom, and my favorite flower is the Gerbera Daisy, this card is perfect for me–too bad I can’t give it to myself!  A few weeks ago, I received samples of soon to be released colors from Stampin Up’s Color RenovationDaffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Marina Mist, and Cajun Craze. This card uses the first three, along with other current colors and returning favorites like Old Olive, Riding Hood Red, and Tangerine Tango.

The card base is Daffodil Delight, layered with Vellum Card Stock that I embossed using the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder in the Big Shot. I adhered it to the base with Mini Glue Dots to tone down the yellow. I’m not a big yellow person, so adding the Vellum really softened the color and makes it more palatable for my taste.

I matted Whisper White card stock with Early Espresso, a dark blackish brown and stamped the mother’s day sentiment from Well Scripted in Riding Hood Red ink.

The daisies were made using the Scallop Circle Punch, in Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango card stock. I cut between each scallop using my paper snips to create the petals. In the center of each flower, I used the 3/4″ Circle Punch to punch out Daffodil Delight and cut a 1/4″ wide strip of card stock (Cherry Cobbler and Tangerine Tango) that I quilled into a spiral shape. I attached the quilled paper to the flowers’ centers using Mini Glue Dots. The leaves are from Sweet Pea Stitched Felt, also attached with Mini Glue Dots.

As a final touch, around the base of the Early Espresso/Whisper White layer, I tied some Old Olive 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon into a knot.

Card For Father {Birthday or Father’s Day}

This card all came about from a scrap of paper. For some reason, after using the Scallop Square Bigz Die on another project a while ago, I held onto the negative part. Looking at it in my pile of scraps, I decided to try making a big square card with it. I trimmed down the Chocolate Chip card stock to 5 1/4″ square and ran it through the Big Shot using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.

Then, taking a sheet of paper from the Welcome Neighbor DSP pack, I layered it behind the Chocolate Chip, then adhered it to a 5 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Bermuda Bay textured card stock, folded in half.

The sentiment is from Well Scripted, stamped in chocolate chip ink onto a Small Metal Edge Tag. Using the Cropadile, I punched three holes and added Circle Rhinestone Brads in orange and blue. That was layered onto Dusty Durango card stock I punched with the Scallop Circle Punch (Pumpkin Pie would also be a good color choice).

I haven’t decided whether I’m going to use this for my father’s birthday or as a Father’s Day card. Inside, I will add the appropriate sentiment when the time comes.
