More A-Door-Able Cards!

I have a how-to tutorial for these A-Door-Able Cards on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Blog today.

Beth Pingry Door Cards

These were inspired by a post I did a while back, here…but you can’t see the card on that post because it has been published, along with 2 more cards I made!! Big puffy ♥s to CardMaker Magazine!

So this edition is from last spring, and I apologize for not screaming from the rooftops then, I had been buried in work at the time and hardly had time to come up for air.

The first is the original Red Door Card that was part of a Flourishes blog hop. The wreath is from a Flourishes Stamp.

The next one, and I’m not a ‘yellow’ person at all, just came together for a springtime door, with Flower Soft in the tussy mussy.

And the third, a white iridescent cover stock from WorldWin Papers, has embossed vellum in the center oval.


Sorry, it’s not the best photo, white on white is hard enough without the sheen, but you get the idea.

All the die cuts were from Spellbinders Nestabilities, and the cardstock from WorldWin Papers. Of course I used Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L’s 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner.

I have soooooo many more door ideas, so stay tuned!

Thanks for coming by today!

Here are the supplies for the first Red Door image at the top:

Today’s new die is Nested Tea Cups

Medium Cup 2 1/8 x 1 7/8”
Medium Handle ¾ x 1 ½”
Large Cup 3 x 2 5/8”
Large Handle 1 1/8 x 2”

Today I have a 5 x 7 canvas with stamped tea cups, precariously stacked.


I had the idea in my head, loved the direction it was going in with the stamped and colored cups, but then it just seems like it needs something else…but I ran out of time and brain cells over the weekend. This is one of those things that I’ll set aside and most likely rework until I am happier with it.

On that note though, I like that it really looks like an elegant Victorian tea cup.  I used embossing ink, carefully applying it to the rim only, by inking just that part of the die template, called reverse stenciling.  I embossed in the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® machine, then added embossing powder and heated.

The saucer is heat embossed the same way.  I curled the cups to make them look rounded, and used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares and Crafty Foam Tape to give the cups some lift.
