Approaching Perfection

Approaching Perfection Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Love the witty sentiments included in the Approaching Perfection stamp set by Stampin' Up!  I ended up using every single stamp in the set to make this Birthday Card.  Did I mention that this funny birthday card can be made in short order with just stamps, ink, Paper and a single punch?

Stamparatus Basics Video Tutorial

Why the Stamparatus is a Must-Have Tool for the Craft Room

I highly recommend using your Stamparatus for perfect stamped images when making this card. Some of the stamp sets featured in this video are no longer available but the techniques are the same.  Note:  Extra plates are no longer available.

My inside message was heat embossed white on black then punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Hint: To make this card even faster and easier, you could simply stamp the sentiment using black ink onto your white card base.

Curvy Celebrations Slimline Cards

 

Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up!

2 Hot Topics in the Stamping World


Slimline Cards

Hello Friends,

Two trending topics in the stamping and cardmaking world are Slimline Cards and the new Curvy Celebrations products from Stampin' Up!.  So today I will share both how to make Slimline Cards and a Sneak Peek of the Curvy Celebrations products that will be available starting November 3.   See Curvy Celebrations Flyer Here.

Let's see what all the chatter is about!


Slimline Cards

What's the BIG Deal About Slimline Cards?

Slimline Card fit nicely in standard #9 or #10 envelopes that are readily available in almost any store.

You can fit more design elements on a Slimline card.

Do you find yourself bored with the standard size card?  Try a Slimline Card.  This tall narrow card is a refreshing change of pace.  Of course, there's also the option of making Slimline Cards on a smaller scale, but we will talk about that another day.

Slimline Card Measurements

Cut Card Base 8-1/2" x 7-1/2".  Note 8-1/2" is the height of the card.  Score at 3-3/4".

After cutting your card base from an 8-1/2" x 11" piece of card stock, you will have a piece leftover that works nicely for a front panel.  I trimmed mine to 8" x 3-1/4".  Then I dry embossed the front panel with my Subtle Embossing Folder for just a hint of texture.

Notice the two different options that I used for my leaves border.  The leaves can be stamped and then colored or they can be stamped directly on colored card stock.  Both options are pretty.  I used Just Jade card stock and Just Jade Stampin' Blends for today's cards.
