Flower Pot Card

Its been a long hot summer! Most of my flower pots survived, but only by the grace of automatic sprinklers!

I really had fun making this card! I used Jillibean Soup’s Macho Nacho Soup kit to make a feminine inspired card. Of course Spellbinders™ dies did the heavy lifting, and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® keeps everything in place!

I used 3D Foam Squares to create a curve in the flower pot and the folds in the leaves, and Dodz 3D to form the flowers.

Graduation Cap and Gown Card that Flips!

My son is graduating from high school this year, and I have graduation on the brain!

Today  on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Power Blog I posted a Graduation Cap and Gown Card with a cap that flips up revealing a gift card pocket. Here is the tutorial to make it!

Beth Pingry cap and gown graduation card

Start with a sheet of 8.5 x 11″ black cardstock. I prototyped it from white paper, and then wrote the dimensions – these are the fold and cut lines.

Essentially the body is 6.5 x 8.5″. Fold down the center to make a wide card with flaps on both sides. Set aside for now.

Take the cut off piece, which is about 4.5 x 8.5″. Trim to 4.25 x 8.5″, then mark the center with a pencil. Fold the outer corners into the center to make this design:

Then adhere the folds down to make the square. (Hang on, we’ll get to the tassel and brad part.)

Once these are folded in,you have the graduation cap. To make the tassel, cut a strip of paper about 3 x 2″, snip with scissors to make the fringe part. Add MyStik Permanent Strips across the top edge, place embroidery floss into the adhesive, roll tightly. Place a brad at the center of the graduation cap, wrap the floss around it and secure the brad prongs inside the cap so they are under the folds.

Next we have to secure the cap to the card. I used a strip of black cardstock to attach on the underside of the cap and the back side of the card. Then I closed and adhered the flaps on the back side of the card.


From the front side,  you can see the flip strip on the underside of the cap.

From here layer cardstock that coordinates with your school colors.

The center piece should be just wide enough to create a pocket that fits a standard sized gift card. Place 3D Foam Squares around the outside edges of paper to create a pocket. (I placed the gift card on the cardstock and worked around it to make sure it would fit.)

I added a die cut and stamped Congratulations on it. I left room for a personal note or signature from the giver.

The front looked a little bland, so I added the stole to the front, so it looked more like a real gown.

The last (optional) thing is to add a short strip of cardstock inside, to keep the card from collapsing – it will be front-heavy.

A Sparkly Card!

I’ve got a quick card today,

on the SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Blog.  The post has more details on how I created it.

The textured white ribbon is from the Los Angeles garment district shopping trip after CHA.  I don’t have a source for it, I wish I would have bought a lot more of it!

Supplies:

I’m heading back into the chaos, the relatives are arriving tomorrow and I still have loads of laundry and a few more dust bunnies to evict.  Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

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.

Christmas Gift Bag Toppers

Welcome everyone!  I’m getting ready for the holidays!

I made these gift bag toppers over the weekend.  They’re  fun, festive and quick to make with JustRite® Stampers and Spellbinders™ dies!

I stamped with the JustRite Stampers sets and heat embossed the designs.  I used gel pens to color inside some of the lines to add a pop of color.  The center of the stamp allows room to stamp a greeting or write a name.

Once the ink was dry I die cut and embossed the images with Spellbinders 2010 Heirloom Ornament and 2011 Heirloom Ornament dies.  I attached the ornament shapes onto clothes pins with SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ Crafty Power Tape.  Tie ribbon above the ornament, add a spot of bling and they’re done!  Just clip to a gift bag!

Supplies:
