Until next time, Enjoy!!!!
Crikey, can you believe it!!!!! This is week 13 of our challenge – time does fly when you’re having fun.
Base Card – Poppy Parade – 8 1/4″ x 5 7/8″ or 21cm x 15cm – Scored & folded in half landscape
Layer 1 – Whisper White – 4″ x 5 3/4″ or 10cm x 14.5cm
Layer 2 – DSP – 3 7/8″ x 5 5/8″ or 9.5cm x 14cm
Layer 3 – Poppy Parade – 4″ x 2 3/8″ or 10cm x 6cm
Layer 4 – DSP – 3 7/8″ x 2 1/4″ or 9.5cm x 5.5cm
I layered my DSP onto Whisper White Cardstock & then onto the Base Card – Poppy Parade, using Snail Adhesive. I layered the smaller piece of DSP onto the piece of Poppy Parade Cardstock, then onto the middle of the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.
I punched a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with my Scallop Circle Punch & layered a piece of Wild Wasabi Cardstock onto it. This piece had been punched with the 1 3/8″ Circle Punch. I punched a So Saffron circle from my 1 1/4″ Circle Punch & adhered to the top of Wild Wasabi circle.
With my Early Expresso Ink, I stamped the bottom of the cupcake, while the top was stamped using So Saffron Ink. I punched both pieces with my Cupcake Builder Punch, stamped over the So Saffron top with Early Expresso Ink – this put the “chips” onto the “icing” & adhered this piece to the top of the cupcake bottom with Snail Adhesive. I drew dots around the circle with my SU Marker – Early Expresso & adhered the whole cupcake to the So Saffron Circle with Su Dimensionals.
I stamped the greeting in Early Expresso Ink onto a scrap of Whisper White Cardstock, cut around it ensuring I allowed enough card at both ends of the greeting, one end to slide under the Scalloped Circle, while the other end, I snipped a “V” into it. I then used my scissors to shape the pennant & adhered the left hand end to the card with Snail Adhesive.
For something a little different, I decided to have another cupcake for the inside, but I wanted it to pop up when opened. For this, I cut a piece of Whisper White Cardstock 4″ x 5 3/4″ or 10cm x 14.5cm, measured the middle along the long side & marked with a pencil. To get the bit to stand, I measured 1/8″ or 3mm either side of the halfway mark. I then drew a line on both sides about 1 1/8″ or 2.5cm down, scored across the bottom to where both sides meet & cut along the lines to the score mark.
|Inside – Pop Up Cupcake…|
I again stamped my images using Early Expresso & So Saffron Inks onto Whisper White Cardstock, punched using my Cupcake Builder Punch & adhered to the piece with Snail Adhesive. I punched the cherry from DSP with the same punch. I inked my wording with my SU Marker – Poppy Parade & stamped in the middle.
For the bottom half, I cut a strip of DSP, adhered to a piece of Early Expresso Cardstock, then to the Whisper White Cardstock, allowing a small edge of the White to show at the bottom.
All in all a very simple card but with a bit of a WOW, I think!!!!! I would relly like to know what you think?
I was recently asked if I stamped my envelopes to match my cards. Ever since I started making cards, I had to match the envelopes to my cards. I know the ladies I used to do cards with, thought it funny & strange, but that was me – has to match. I also do the inside to match as well. In future, I will show you both the envelope & inside, along with the card.
Layer 5 – Early Expresso – 3″ x 2 1/2″ or 8cm x 6.5cm
Layer 6 – Very Vanilla – 2 78″ x 2 1/8″ or 7.5cm x 6cm
With what started out something compeletely different, I am quite happy with the end result. Although these little boxes have been around for quiet sometime, I wanted to try something or add something to it. It gives the box a completely different look, yet still being useful to store your notes for messages. Actually, now that I have seen the box in a new light, there are tons of ideas going around in my head.
Now that I think of it, the Box of Notes may also qualify for Latenight Stampers Weekly Challenge # 123, which is Making the Grade – showing your appreciation to those teachers who have made a difference in your child’s life, or your own life for that matter. This is able to be in the form of a card, gift, treat, etc
As I have to make a couple of male birthday cards this month & not having any cards in my stash – haha – this is the prefect sketch to complete a couple of cards.
Gotta love how all the measurements are done for you –
Layer 1 – Cardbase cut at 5.5 x 8.5″, scored & folded
Layer 2 – 4 x 5.25″
Layer 3 – 4 x 1.75″
I’ve used Baja Breeze for my card base, scored & folded
Cut smaller piece of Early Expresso Cardstock
Cut DSP – Pear Pizzazz
Cut Very Vanilla Cardstock
Stamp image directly onto Very Vanilla using Early Expresso Ink
Using your Early Expresso SU Marker, colour in sentiment & stamp directly onto Very Vanilla
Adhere both pieces to the Early Expresso Cardstock

This is a great sketch for that 5 minute card.
