Gold Glitter Ornament Card

When I first sat down with the Holiday Catalog in July, it was love at first sight for me with the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and coordinating Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. Today I’d like to share with you the second card in a series of cards that I am making with my stamp club.

Gold Glitter Pix Finished

Tips, Tricks, and Insights:

  • Layered Ornament –¬†The Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies include elegant detailed dies as used in the Gold part of the ornament on this card and solid dies as shown in the red background. I found that the best way to adhere the two is a two-way glue pen. Although the Fine-tip Glue Pen is great for small spaces; these spaces are a little too small if you have a heavy hand when applying glue,¬†like I doūüėČ

  • Working with Detailed Dies –¬†There are many small holes in this ornament die. Neither you nor I have time to punch out each hole. There’s a secret ingredient that does this for you, dryer sheets. After die cutting the card stock, in this case the Gold Glimmer Paper, place the cut out die on top of a few layered dryer sheets. Place these on top of the Magnetic Platform and Cutting Pad. Place the die back in place on top of the cut out ornament. Top with another Cutting Pad to make a sandwich and run the ornament back through the Big Shot. Once finished, remove the cutting pad and die and gently peel the ornament off the dryer sheets. The little holes remain on the dryer sheet.

  • Sentiments for the Inside – Although not pictured on this card, the Versatile Christmas stamp set makes a wonderful stamp set to use on the inside. I did use one of the sentiments on the inside.

A Wedding Toast

Hello! It’s been several months since I’ve written a blog post. My work-life has been extremely busy and Stamping took a place on the back-burner, focusing only on my monthly clubs and classes. Well, I’m attempting to get back to blogging :-)¬† While work isn’t as crazy as it has been, it’s still busy. Therefore, I’ll post as frequently as I am able. I hope you don’t mind that I took a bit of a break.

Today’s card features a twist on using the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies, which coordinates with the new Embellished Ornaments stamp set. Both are from Stampin’ Up!’s 2015 Holiday catalog.

Today’s card was inspired by Candy Ford during a recent Inking Royalty Blog Hop. I am always impressed by crafters when they can see one image as something completely different. That is the case with Candy’s awesomely creative Christmas card in which she converted the ornament dies into wine glasses. You can see her card here.

Tips, Tricks and Insights:

  • Making Wine Glasses – Take the hollow tall, thin die from the Delicate Ornaments Thinlits Dies and only cut out the top portion of a piece of vellum, positioning it on the Big Shot as shown below. Do the same with the Blackberry Bliss “wine”.
    Wedding Toast 2
  • Work with Gravity¬†– When you tilt a glass full of liquid the liquid always remains level horizontally. Such needed to be the case with the wine in these velum glasses. Before adhering the wine and glasses down, I positioned them where I wanted them and used a ruler to draw a straight horizontal line for how the wine would level out when the glasses were tilted during the toast.
    Wedding Toast 6
  • Mr. & Mrs. Tags –¬†¬†The smallest Framelit from the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies was the perfect size to trim the “Mr.” and “Mrs.” tags which were stamped from the For the New Two stamp set.
  • Thick Whisper White Card Stock – Thick Whisper White Card stock served as the perfect base for this card.

Wedding Toast Finished Flat

Today’s card is one of three cards that my stamp club will be making this month featuring the Embellished Ornaments stamp set and Delicate Ornament Thinlits Dies. I’ll be sharing the other two cards in upcoming blog posts, both of which are Holiday cards.

A big shout out goes to Candy Ford for inspiring this card.

Blessings,

Kelly

Gatefold Card with the Butterflies Thinlits

In anticipation of the Butterfly Thinlits return I made a gatefold card with a butterfly as one of the cards for my stamp club this month. I’m happy to say that the ladies loved this card and the fact that¬†they could now order the Butterfly Thinlits and Butterfly Basics once again. Here’s my card.

Gatefold - closed one card

And here’s another look to give you the full effect of the gatefold.

Gatefold - open one card2

Tips, Tricks, and Insights:

  • Making a Gatefold Card¬†–¬†It’s very easy to make a gatefold card; here are the dimensions:
    • Cut an 8-1/2″ x 11″¬†piece of Stampin’ Up! card stock in half so that the size becomes 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″
    • Score the 8-1/2″ length at 2-1/8″ on each end
    • Fold both sides toward the center; the completed closed size is 5-1/2″ x 4-1/4″
    • Trim the layers for the left panel which¬†are 1/8″ and 1/4″ shorter than the panel itself
      • Hello Honey Layer: 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″
      • Whisper White Stamped Layer: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Transparent Butterfly –¬†Because the background on both of the gatefold panels are different the butterfly needed a backing. I decided to adhere White Vellum to the back of the Butterfly, hand snipping the vellum to size it perfectly with the cut out butterfly. I played around a little and on one card I colored the vellum with a Hello Honey marker. Can you see the difference between the two cards? The one on the left was colored and the one on the right was not. Which do you prefer?
    Gatefold - both cards
  • Opposites Attract –¬†I didn’t want both panels on the gatefold card to look the same. The panel on the left was stamped using the Something Lacy background stamped with Lost Lagoon ink on Whisper White card stock. The panel on the right was texturized (is that a word?) using my favorite embossing folder, Woodgrain.
  • Tie a Yellow Ribbon – Before adhering the Something Lacy and Hello Honey frame onto the left panel make sure you tie the Hello Honey 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon onto the panel.
    Gatefold - left side

I hope you enjoyed my card today. It’s very easy to make. Why don’t you give it a try?

Embellish This!

 

We all know people who tend to embellish the truth when they share a story. Quite frankly, the little extra details make their stories more interesting. The same holds true for embellishments to cards. According to Google, the definition of the word “Embellish” in the latter sense is to “make (something) more attractive by the addition of decorative details or features”. Well, it’s time to¬†dust off¬†some of your old brads for our current Retro Rubber Challenge, RRCB12. This challenge encourages us to use brads. You’ll notice on my card that the brads I used are a bit ancient. But I have a stockpile of them because I really love them. Below is the challenge banner and my card.

RRBC12

RRBC12 - Kelly DeTommaso

Tips, Tricks, and Insights:

  • Various Ways to Embellish with Brads –¬†Sometimes brads are used in a sequence of three in a row as an accent at the bottom or top of a card or tag. Sometimes they are used as a part of¬† a stamped image to add color to a portion of the image. And other times they may be used as flower centers, as was the case on my card. These flower brads made the perfect centers for my flowers which were cut out with a [now retired] 5-point flower punch.
    Card Top
  • More Embellishments –¬†As if 3 cute flower brads weren’t enough, there are two additional embellishments on this card. The Chocolate Chip Grosgrain Ribbon serves as an anchor behind the three flowers. The scalloped semi-circle flower livens up the lower part of the card with additional color.
  • Check Out the Base! –¬†I made this card using a [now retired] Big Shot template. I just love the criss-crosses. To get the stamped sentiment to appear smooth on the base of this card I stamped first then ran the base through the Big Shot die.

  • Not too Shabby – I added just a little shabbiness to this card by sponging the edges of the So Saffron base and all of the edges of the DSP with Chocolate Chip ink.

Note: This challenge is the last challenge for which I will be on the design team for the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog. I decided to step down due to my busy work schedule. It was an honor and a pleasure to serve as a design team member with such talented designers and fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrators.

Things have been a little sketchy lately…

 

Hello! I miss you! I really do. I miss blogging on a regular basis and card-making on a regular basis. I’ve mentioned recently that last August/September¬†I started a new job. It’s been C-R-A-Z-Y! When I tell you that I work on average 60 hours per week, that’s not an exaggeration. My days are long starting with 6:00 am meetings to include folks from other regions and my work days sometimes don’t end until I go to bed. My schedule has been a little sketchy, but I think that I am beginning to see light at the end of the tunnel and hope to get back to my craft room really soon.

Today I do have a card for you that I made on the fly using Stampin’ Up!’s MDS software. This card was made using the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog’s latest challenge, Kind of Sketchy! Below you will find the sketch and my card.

RRCB11-Kelly DeTommaso_2-001

Tips, Tricks, and Insights:

  • Plain and Simple –¬†Due to my lack of time to sit down and get creative, I turned to MDS to try making my card for the current Retro Rubber Challenge. I’ve made several cards in the past using MDS and love how you can crank out so many very quickly. I was able to make this very quickly using punches for each of the shaped elements on the card and then filling them with card stock.
  • Adding Texture –¬†I used Blushing Bride for the background color of my card, but the card looked a little too plain and simple. Therefore, I added a Vintage Overlay to give my card a little extra appeal. Although this is called an overlay and is intended to go on top of the card or page elements, I manipulated the layers and sent the overlay to the back so that the speckles would not be on top of the sentiment or banner.
  • Digital Stamps –¬†If you are an MDS user then this is a tip that you want to pay careful attention to. Because MDS will no longer be supported by Stampin’ Up! you only have 2 more months to stock up on any of their digital downloads. There have been discussion threads on some websites, including MyDigitalStudio.net for which MDS users have been discussing which downloads to get before it’s too late. My recommendation would be¬†punches and stamp sets. I’ve been playing around with the parent software of MDS called MyMemories. It’s very easy to use and you can import MDS items into this software [more on that in the future]. Yet, the digital stamp brush sets and punches are two items that I can tell you that you will miss when working with any digital software whether you stick with MDS or switch to a new one. The sentiment on this card is from Vintage Verses. I added the dark shadow behind it to make it really stand out.
  • Printing Digital Cards – You can print a card that you’ve made using digital software on your own printer or you can send it out for multiple copies to Stampin’ Up!’s exclusive printer (through May 31st only) or any other printer that prints digital images.

There are still more days to play along with us at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog. Consider making a card by Friday at noon and upload it to the challenge blog site.

Are you an MDS User? If so, please leave me a comment. I’d like to find out how I can help you make the most of the next two months and answer any questions you may have about this transition as MDS will no longer be supported. If you already own the MDS software, great news! You don’t have to stop using it. It’s just that Stampin’ Up! will no longer support it. But, you can still use all your favorite downloads and the software and have your finished projects printed elsewhere.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

Digital Downloads – retires on May 31st!

Have you heard the news? Stampin’ Up! will be discontinuing their support of My Digital Studio on June 1st. This is very sad news for me; yet, that doesn’t mean that I or you can’t continue to use the software for memory keeping, calendar making, and card making. If you are an MDS user please visit the Digital Downloads before May 31st to stock up on any of the digital downloads that you may want. You must download them from your cart onto your computer by May 31st. Also, I highly recommend backing up all of your digital downloads onto a back-up drive. Shipping is always free on digital downloads, yet, I wanted to make mention of this. Tomorrow I’ll share a card with you that I made using MDS software.
Have a blessed day!

Retro Rubber Technique Challenge

Hey everyone, it’s time to get out your heat emboss tools and embossing powder to make a project to share with us at the Retro Rubber Challenge Blog.

RRCB10

Our current challenge encourages you to make a card or project using embossing powder. The only other requirement we have is to use a stamp set that is at least 1 year old. Here’s my card for the RRBC10 challenge.

RRBC10-Kelly DeTommaso Embossed Easter Card

Tips, Tricks, and Insights:

  • Embossed Lines –¬†I wanted to make brown bunnies but didn’t have brown embossing powder. So, I ink my stamp with Versamark ink to prime it for embossing, then inked it with Early Espresso ink then stamped it onto the Whisper White card stock. Clear Embossing Powder allowed the brown lines to remain brown.
  • Watercoloring –¬†I was SO SAD to see the Blendabilities Markers get discontinued due to product defects; I’m holding out hope that SU! will have a new and improved Alcohol marker next year. Therefore, to color my image I used Aqua Painters dipped into Early Espresso ink for the bunny bodies making the darkest impressions closest to the embossed lines. I went very light on their faces with barely any ink. I also used Blushing Bride ink for the ears, noses¬†and chest,¬†Crisp Cantaloupe and Early Espresso for the butterflies, and Always Artichoke for the grass.

  • Crumpled Bow –¬†Leaving an extra long tail on my bow allowed me to create the ruffled look. The bumps were created by using Glue Dots to keep the ribbon anchored to the card base.
  • Matting with Framelits – Using the Deco Labels Framelits I cut “windows” into my Early Espresso and Blushing Bride card stock and placed the bunnies behind my window frame. Typically I would center this on my card front but went with an off-centered placement to leave room for the bow on the left side. For more on how to easily create mats you can see my previous cards and tutorials here and here.
  • Making Good Use of the Extra Die Cut – So, what’s a stamper to do with the die cut frame? Use it on the inside for the greeting which was also stamped using the retired Gifts of Spring Stamp set.

  • Behind the Scenes – Check out another image that comes with this stamp set as shown on the “backside” [pun intended] of this card. Isn’t it darling? It says “hand stamped by” and I hand wrote my name.
