Laser Cut Note Cards

I have another set of cards using the beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper. For these cards I used the piece that you have to cut up and it gives you some different strips and then some panels.  The panels work perfectly with the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards & Envelopes.  I explained it all in my Facebook Live from May 13, 2019  – view FB live video HERE.   My next FB live video will be on Monday, May 20th.  

Each panel fits perfectly on the front of the note cards.  There are four different watercolor wash designs in the pack – two are Blackberry Bliss and two are Mint Macaron. All are on a Very Vanilla base.   The laser-cut paper is Very Vanilla on one side so that is the side I used facing up.  To finish the cards I added a greeting that was stamped on a Very Vanilla circle, and matted with a Mint Macaron starburst punch.  The Faceted Dots and some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon are the final touches to these fun little note cards.

I tried to take a photo to show you how to cut this paper.  First you cut off the 12″ strips – the longer ones.  Then you cut off the shorter strips.  Then you cut apart the six panels that you would use on your cards.  I am missing one of the panels – I used them all up in a class and didn’t have any more to show you.

Fun with Laser-Cut Paper

Did you notice the beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper in our Stampin’ Up! catalog?  It is on page 189 and also featured on pages 38-39 as part of the Delightfully Detailed suite.  This week I did a Facebook Live showing you 3 ideas on using this paper for cards.  You can view my May 13, 2019 FB live video HERE.   Be sure to catch my next FB live video on Monday, May 20th.  

For today’s post I have one of the cards and the other two will post in the next few days.  This card uses the full sheet of the laser-cut paper but I cut it up into pieces.  First I cut it in half at 6″.  Then I cut each half into three 4″ pieces.  So out of each of the full 12×12 pieces you can get 6 of these pieces.  Be careful when cutting and handling the paper as it is very delicate. 

I used a blender pen and my classic ink pads to color the delicate design in the paper.  And then I trimmed away bits until I had what I wanted left for my card front.  Each one will be unique depending on the section of the large piece that you started with and which bits you cut away.  Once it was colored use either a Fine-tip glue pen or the Liquid multipurpose glue (very carefully) to add glue to the back and attach to the layer of Whisper White card stock.  Stamp a greeting and add some of the polka dot ribbon around the layer before adding on the front of your card.  The time consuming part is coloring it and then deciding what to trim away – otherwise it is a fairly simple card. 

Supply List

  • #146907 Delightfully Detailed Laser-cut Specialty Paper
  • #146912 5/8″ Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon
  • #102845 Blender Pens
  • #147095 Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #1147101 Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad

  • #100730 Whisper White card stock
  • #145788 Petal Palette stamp set

Here is the second one that I actually made in the video.

 

When you use the blender pen you can pick up any color of ink to color with.  There are a couple of tips in my video.  Thanks for stopping by and if you watch the video you can leave me a comment there. Remember to order retiring products now before they are gone.  The laser-cut paper and the Petal Palette stamp set are retiring.

You Make Me Proud

It’s graduation season!  We have what I think is our last graduation happening today.  Ryan’s is graduating with a Master’s degree from Purdue University.  And we are so very proud of him.  Today’s card is perfect for this occasion. 

It’s easy to get a masculine feel with the Wood Textures Designer series paper.  We’ve had this great stack of 6×6 papers in our catalog for the past two years.  But now it is time to say good bye!  If you love it be sure to order another pack before its gone for good.  The Friendly Expression Stamp set is also on the retiring list.  It has some nice big greetings in it and I’ve used it throughout the whole year for different things.  I’ve been in a splattering phase lately – I use my Stampin’ Write Markers to get the splatter effect – sometimes you just need to add a little something and splatter can be just the right thing.

Supply List

  • #146673 Friendly Expressions stamp set
  • #144177 Wood Textures 6×6 Designer Series Paper
  • #121029 Crumb Cake card stock
  • #119789 Early Espresso card stock
  • #101650 Very Vanilla card stock
  • #147114 Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • #147158 Neutrals Stampin’ Write Markers
  • #146343 Leaves Trinkets
  • #104199 Linen Thread
  • #145372 Stitched Shapes dies

Happy Graduation to everyone that has friends and family completing another phase of their education!  Congratulations.

Beauty in Bloom

Today I have another scrapbook layout for you.  This page was my May page for my Stamper’s Club.  I don’t think I’ve shown the April page yet so I’ll have to do that one later this month.  I’ve used the 2017-2019 In colors on this page.  They are really the perfect set of colors for flowers and the title I used on this page is Beauty in Bloom.  Don’t miss out on these beautiful colors – they are retiring!  We can only hope in a few years they might bring some of them back.  Definitely some of my personal favorites. 

I shared this page on a Facebook Live this week.  I showed how I used the Stamparatus for the stamping, a second page, and two alternate card ideas using the same supplies.  You can view my May 6, 2019 FB live video HERE.   Be sure to catch my next FB live video on Monday, May 13th.  

Don’t miss this versatile stamp set – Jar of Love and the coordinating Everyday Jar dies.  That is what I used for this page, the two page layout and my cards.  And it is retiring!  So are these colors and the Brushwork Alphabet that I used for the title.  Everyone had the option to choose whatever title they wanted since the letters were individually stamped.  We had a variety of spring & bloom titles.  Watch the video to see how I set up a template and used the Stamparatus to stamp all the pieces. 

Supply List

  • #141587 Jar of Love stamp set
  • #141772 Brushwork Alphabet stamp set
  • #141490 Everyday Jars dies

  • #147144 Fresh Fig Classic Stampin’ Pad

  • #138401 Gold Metallic Thread
  • #104199 Linen Thread
  • #143741 Garden Trellis Embossing Folder
  • #143263 Big Shot Die Cutting Machine

I focused on a lot of retiring products when making this page.  On last hurrah!  So hurry and get them before they are gone for good – the 2017-2019 In Colors, the Jar of Love set and dies, the pearls, the embossing folder and even the Big Shot!

Here are the two alternate cards that my club could make using the same supplies. 

The first card has the same stamping as the scrapbook page – I just added the greeting.  For the second card I stamped directly on Crumb Cake card stock with the medium sized jar and the other little spray of greenery.  Then added the words.

For my Facebook Live video I added a second page so it would be a two page spread.

I used the same supplies just stamped out the medium and small jars and then divided the flowers and leaves between the two of them.
