Stampin’ Up!® Sweets & Treats Cloche Dome Card

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today I plan to spend some time reflecting on all I have to be grateful for. An “attitude of gratitude” really keeps me from feeling down during the holidays. I am very blessed to be able to spend Thanksgiving with family this year. We missed last year, so I feel especially grateful to be visiting this year.

I have a very fun 3D card for you today:

Doesn’t that apple pie look delicious? I actually prefer pumpkin pie, but the apple pie is a close second. Which pie do you like best? Please leave me a comment below.

Measurements

  • Cinnamon Cider Card Stock (CS) card base: 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches
  • Cinnamon Cider CS: 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 inches
  • Basic White CS: 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches and a scalloped rectangle from the Scalloped Contour Dies
  • Hand Penned 12 x 12 inch Designer Series Paper (DSP): 3 3/4 x 3 3/4

The Fun Fold Card Base

The card base is made by cutting 3/4 inch off of the top and bottom of the front panel. Emboss the back panel with the Timber 3D Embossing Folder. Set aside.

Trivia: Anyone know what a cloche (Klōsh) is? I didn’t. One definition of cloche from French, literally “bell”, is a transparent cover shaped like a bell.

Stamping & Coloring The Pie Pan

Use the Cloche Dies to cut the shape of the dome from the Scalloped Contour Die rectangle. Take care to position the die so that it is about 1/4 inch down from the top and that it is centered. Tip: I use sticky note tape to hold my dies in position while putting them through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine. Save the cut out piece. Stamp the pie stand in Memento Black Ink. Use Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Smoky Slate to color the stand. Tip: I color in the “shadows” first with the Dark Smoky Slate Blend.

Then use the Light Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blend marker to blend the border of the dark into the light. Keep moving from the edges to the center until it is all colored in.

Stamping & Coloring the Pie

Now stamp the pie onto the cut out piece of the dome. Color the pie pan with Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends. Start with the Dark Cinnamon Cider Blend on the edges. Use the Ivory Stampin’ Blend to color the pie crust. Since there is only one shade of the Ivory, you can make a shadow on the edges by coloring the first layer as shown.

For the pie pan, blend with the Light Cinnamon Cider marker from both edges until you reach the middle of the pie pan. Note: I used a wee bit of the Light Cinnamon Cider Blend on the pie crust. To finish the crust I used the Ivory Blend to smooth out the darker edges until I covered the entire crust. I used the Light Real Red Stampin’ Blend for the holes in the pie crust since I am making an apple pie.

Stamping the Inside

Orient the 3 3/4 x 3 1/2 inch Basic White CS card piece with the 3 1/2 inch edge on either side. Using the Memento ink, stamp the “love ya” sentiment in the center. Add the heart in Blushing Bride ink.

Assembling the Card

Adhere the inside Basic White CS panel to the inside of the Cinnamon Cider CS card base so that it is hidden when you close the front panel. Adhere the Hand Penned DSP to the front panel. Set aside.

Do Not Adhere, but just place the complete Scalloped Contour rectangle with the pie dome on the 3 3/8 x 4 5/8 inch Cinnamon Cider CS. Adhere the pie dome without getting adhesive on the Scalloped Contour piece. Remove the Scalloped Contour rectangle. Draw some steam over the pie with the Black Stampin’ Write Marker. Yummy!

Assembling the Shaker Cloche Dome

Place about 1/2 tsp of the gold and orange Sequins for Everything on the center of the dome cut out. Remove the strip covering the adhesive on the bottom of the Cloche Shaker Dome.

Carefully line up the inside edge of the shaker dome with the dome on the Cinnamon Cider CS. Push firmly around the edge of the dome. Once adhered, remove the strip covering the adhesive on the top of the Cloche Shaker Dome.

Apply adhesive to the back of the Scalloped Contour rectangle. Place it carefully over the dome and push down to make it stick. Now the sequins can move around inside the dome! Fun!

Finishing the Card

Adhere the shaker dome card piece to the front panel of the card base. Take care not to apply adhesive to the very top and bottom. Include a sentiment if desired. I really like the sentiment “any way you slice it, I’m thankful for you”.

Voila! Such a yummy looking Sweets & Treats Cloche Shaker card! Also a great Thanksgiving card to share your gratitude with a loved one.

Stampin’ Up!® Snowflake Wishes Christmas Card

Welcome to my blog today! I have a card that I am submitting to the Cardz4Guyz Challenge #284 Gingham, Checks or Plaid. I had a lot of fun with this card. I wanted to use the Wonderful Snowflakes which are laser-cut snowflakes from an iridescent white paper. They are so beautiful!

I also used the So Many Snowflakes Dies to cut smaller snowflakes from the scrap left behind after punching the Wonderful Snowflakes out. Stampin’ Up! colors used are Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Bermuda Bay.

The Snowflake Wishes stamp set has many snowflakes in different sizes. It also has a great sentiment that goes along with the snowflakes-“May Your Season Sparkle”. The sentiment inside is “Snowflake Wishes for a Merry Christmas”.

I made my own plaid by taking the black and white gingham from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper and drawing a Bermuda Bay line over the center of the white column. I used the Pool Party Stampin’ Blend Alcohol maker on some of the the grey gingham squares to add more color.

The scalloped rectangle is a die from the Scalloped Contours Dies. And I added just a little Bling! with the Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

Cardz4Guyz Challenge #278- Things With Tails and Stampin’ Up!® Turtle Friends with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

I have such an exciting and fun card to share today! The cute Turtle Friends stamp set and Turtle Punch come together with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique for this cute card.

Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Technique

What you will need to do this technique is 99% Isopropyl Alcohol, a plastic dish for the alcohol, a paint brush, a straw, vellum card stock and the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers. I recommend the Stampin’ Up! brand of vellum because it is thicker than the other brand I tried. The thicker vellum doesn’t curl as much when it dries.

I cut my vellum card stock to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches. Using a light, medium and dark color of Stampin’ Blends Marker, I randomly colored in blotches to fill the paper. Here I am using Dark Fresh Freesia, Dark Highland Heather and Dark Blackberry Bliss. (For the turtle card, I used Dark Pool Party, Dark Bermuda Bay and Dark Misty Moonlight Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers.)

I filled in the spaces for this piece with the Dark Misty Moonlight. Next, dip the paint brush in the dish with the alcohol in it, and then dab it onto the vellum card stock. You can blow through the straw to help the alcohol spread, making neat patterns with the ink. I used my Stampin’ Up! Heat Tool to spread the alcohol and also to dry it. Use the low setting so you don’t melt the vellum.

When the vellum card stock is dried, use a glue stick or spread the Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue in a thin continuous layer on the back. Adhere to a piece of Basic White Card Stock. Now you just get the other basic pieces for a card together and Viola! you have a fun and cool card!

Back to the Turtle Card

The Scalloped Contour Dies make the waves on the Vellum Alcohol Technique card piece, as well as on a 5 x 1 1/2 inch Misty Moonlight Card Stock piece. These were adhered together slightly layered, then adhered to a 5 x 3 3/4 inch Pool Party Card Stock embossed with the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder. Next, the Pool Party card piece was adhered to the 5 1/4 x 4 inch Misty Moonlight Card Stock. To finish, adhere the Misty Moonlight/Pool Party card piece to the front of a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch Basic White Card Stock card base.

Now for the turtles. The images were stamped onto Basic White Card Stock in Memento ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers in Dark Pool Party, Light Bermuda Bay and Light Misty Moonlight. Bermuda Bay ink was used to stamp the turtle’s shell. The little bird and the “Happy Birthday” sentiment were stamped in Misty Moonlight ink. I used a scrap of the Alcohol Technique card piece on the inside.

Add a few blue rhinestones from the Holiday Basic Rhinestone Jewels and Voila! You have a fun and cute birthday card for your favorite little guy!
