Hello fellow stampers! I had a great time with my brother. We went to the Renaissance Fair, the Arizona Science Center (for the Mummy Exhibit), Slaughter Ranch and Casa Grande Ruins. Lots of driving!
I almost feel a withdrawal from card making! So let’s finish the series of 3 cards made with Stampin’ Up!’s Amazing Life stamp set. This one is Good Luck!
While you can use this for St. Patrick’s Day, you may also give it to someone who just started a new job, is going on a business trip, or who is in a sports tournament or any type of competition- there are many possibilities!
Measurements: Whisper White card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches folded at 4 1/4 inches. Call Me Clover 5 1/4 x 4 inches and 4 1/4 x 3 inches, Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper (DSP) 5 x 3 3/4 inches, Whisper White 4 x 2 1/4 inches and 4 x 2 inches.
Start with the clover stamp and stamp in different directions to cover the 4 x 2 1/4 inch piece of Whisper White. Remember to use the Stampin’ Pierce Mat with the Photopolymer stamps to get a good image.
Use the Stampin’ Trimmer to cut the stamped clovers into 3/4 inch strips.
Adhere the strips to the smaller piece of Call Me Clover. Adhere the center piece first, then each side piece.
Take the Lemon Lime Twist 3/8 inch Mini Ruffled Ribbon and cut it to be about 1 inch longer on each side. Put a glue dot on each end and adhere the ribbon to the back.
Stamp the “Good Luck” sentiment onto one side of the 2 x 4 inch strip of Whisper White.
Using the Everyday Label punch, frame the sentiment and punch it out.
I took the Stampin’ Sponges and cut it into smaller triangles. I put a piece of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with a label on top with a staple. That way I can use the sponge over and over again. I have one sponge for each color of ink. We are going to do the Sponging Technique to outline the sentiment in Lemon Lime Twist. Apply ink to the sponge.
Gently scrape the sponge on the edge of the “Good Luck” label.
Please see how I make a bow in a video that was posted at https://theresas-treasures.com/2019/02/15/making-a-bow/
Adhere the 5 1/4 x 4 inch piece of Call Me Clover to the front of the card base.
Adhere the DSP to the Call Me Clover.
Use the Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of the stamped clover piece as well as the back of the sentiment label.
Adhere the clover piece and the label. Use a glue dot to adhere the bow to the side of the sentiment label.
In order to add the rhinestones you need the Paper Piercing Tool or something similar to help transfer them from the sheet of rhinestones to the card. Once you have the rhinestone in place, gently press on it to adhere it to the card.
And there you have it fellow stampers, a great “Good Luck” card to give to someone!
For the next series of 3 cards I am going to use the Piece of Cake stamp set. See you soon!
