Now onto my card share and Tutorial for today…..
It’s time to get stamping again. Here is a cute card I did with the “Greeting Card Kids” Set from Stampin’ Up!
I love Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke on Very Vanilla….kind of gives this card a Nostalgic look…don’t you think?
Here is a little Tutorial for you! I hope you enjoy it.
Checkered Background Technique
This is a fun and easy Technique that you can do with the Stripes Embossing Folder. I hope you will give it a try…it’s easy…fun….and oh so cute!!!
First you need to take a piece of Card stock cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Next collect two of your colored pads that you will use, a brayer, the Stripped Embossing Folder #123128 and your Big Shot.
Load your Brayer #102395 with one of the colors of ink and brayer onto the inside top portion (lettering on top) of your Embossing Folder. Then lay your cut piece of card stock in and crank it through your Big Shot. This is what you will end up with.
Next rinse your Embossing Folder and your Brayer under water to clean and get ready for your next color. Make sure to wipe dry with Paper Towels.
Brayer on the Second Color onto the cleaned Stripped Embossing Folder.
Lay your stripped piece across the stripes this time and run through the Big Shot again……see what you get???
Here are the elements I’ve used for my card…..Greeting Card Kids Stamp Set (w) #119887-$20.95 (c) #120633- $15.95. Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding #120992-$6.95. Cherry Cobbler Card Stock #119685-$6.95 cut to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and then I trimmed the piece of checkered to 3 7/8 x 4 1/4. I used the Lace Ribbon Border Punch #122362-$19.95 to add a little border at the bottom just to introduce a bit of Always Artichoke #105119-#6.95 into the mix. I stamped the image with Black Stazon #101406-$7.95 and colored with my Aqua Painter #103954- $16.95 and Rich Regals Watercolor Crayons #119803-$16.95.
I tucked the Triple Bow behind the checkered piece and secured with adhesive, and attached all to the front of the card base. I did pop up the oval image piece with Dimensionals. I had a little piece left over so included it at the bottom inside to finish it off.
Oh and I didn’t use the button….just didn’t think it needed it. Hope you enjoyed this fun and easy tutorial and will give it a try.
The Triple Bow was made using my Magic Bow Maker that my husband makes and sells. You can click here if you would like to order one.
I hope you enjoy the tutorial…
