Use those Scraps! Father's Day Strips of Scraps Card

Fathers Day Strip Scrap Card
Strips of Scraps Father's Day Card

Father's Day is just a few days away!

Here's a quick and easy card, perfect for Father's Day or any other occasion.

And what's best about it is it  is a way to use up some of those paper scraps that are probably laying around your crafting table.

Here's how:

If you are like me, you have all different colors and sizes of  paper scraps next to your paper trimmer.

I sorted through them and picked out pieces of Basic Black, Whisper White, Smoky Slate and Bermuda Bay that were about 4" long and were wide enough that I could cut them down to 1/2" strips. 

Fathers Day Strip Scrap Card step 1

Then, I cut a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 5" x 3 3/4" to use as my base.

I drew a diagonal line across the piece using a ruler and pencil.  This line would be by guide for setting the strips of paper.

I cut a piece of Adhesive Sheet the same size, peeled off the backing, laid it onto the base, then removed the sheet leaving a sticky layer which would be what adheres the strips to the base.  No need for any other adhesive.

Fathers Day Strip Scrap Card step 2

Then, it is just a matter of attaching the strips, alternating the colors.  The pieces will extend past the base, and they can easily be trimmed off from the back side when complete.

Fathers Day Strip Scrap Card step 3

Fathers Day Strip Scrap Card step  4

Once the ends have been trimmed, it is easy to complete the card using a greeting for any occasion.

For this card, I used the greeting stamps from Manly Moments, May's Paper Pumpkin kit.  I stamped them on a scrap piece of Smoky Slate card stock using Memento Black ink, then punched the piece using the Starburst punch.  The greeting was matted onto a piece of Basic Black cut out using the 2 1/4" circle punch and added to the front of the card using Mini Dimensinals to pop it up.

I attached the card front to a Basic Black mat, then attached it to a Bermuda Bay card base.

I added black faceted dots to complete.

Easy, easy, and the possibilities are endless. 

Just use what scraps you have on your crafting table!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Manly Moments

Ink: Memento Black

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay

Accessories: Adhesive Sheet, Starburst and 2 1/4" circle punches, Mini Dimensionals, faceted dots

For this card, I trimmed the flower and circle design from the laser-cut paper and attached it to a scrap piece of grid sheet paper using washi tape.

I first stamped the greeting from Detailed with Love using Memento Black ink.

Using sponge daubers, I added Rich Razzleberry, Minto Macaron, and Mango Melody inks.

I attached the card front to Basic Black card base and added Faceted Dots to complete.

 

Supplies Used:

Stencils! Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper

Here are two more cards that I created using pieces of the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper as stencils.

 

Dragonfly
Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Trellis Stencil

 

For this card, I trimmed the trellis design from the 12"x12  sheet of Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper and secured it to a piece of Shimmery White card stock using washi tape from my stash.

With 2 foam brayers, I added Bermuda Bay, Granny Apple Green and Old Olive inks overs the stencil.

Once the stencil is removed, I was left with a pretty, shimmery trellis background.

I cut the solid dragonfly using the Big Shot and Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Die out of one of the small cards in the Delightfully Detailed Memories and More Card Pack.

I then cut the detailed dragonfly out of another design found in the Memories and More Card Pack.

The solid dragonfly was attached to the card front using SNAIL Adhesive, and the detailed dragonfly was attached with a Mini Glue Dot to pop it up.

The greeting is a sticker from the Memories and More Card Pack.

Leaf stencil
Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper Leaf Stencil

For this card, I trimmed the leaf design from the laser-cut paper and secured it to a piece of Whisper White card stock using washi tape.

Using sponge daubers, I added Granny Apple Green and Old Olive ink.

I punched 2 daisies out of a piece from the Memories and More Card Pack, and offset one on top of the other using a Mini Dimensional in between.

I dyed a piece of 5/8" Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon using a spritzer bottle  filled with water mixed with a few drops of Rich Razzleberry ink refill.

Once the ribbon was dry, I attached it to the stencil card front, then layered it to a Rich Razzleberry mat.

I added the daisy using a Mini Dimensional to pop it up.

I cut the center of the flower out of Rich Razzleberry card stock using a 3/4" circle punch.  I glued it to the center of the daisy, then added a Faceted Dot to complete.

Ink: Granny Apple  Green (new), Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry ink refill

Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper as Stencils

Flower stencil
Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Paper Stencil

 Have you checked out the beautiful Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper found in the new Stampin' Up! catalog?

There are 2 designs, 4- 12"x12" sheets each.

One of the sheets has several laser-cut designs which can be cut down and used individually for projects.

When I saw the designs, I immediately thought of stencils!

So, I cut one of the sheets down to use as stencils to create some easy and bright thank you cards.

I will save the stencils to use later.

  That still leaves me with 3 sheets of this paper to cut down and use for other projects.

For the card above, I used the piece with individual flowers.

I taped the stencil to a piece of Shimmery White card stock using washi tape from my stash.

Then, I used sponge daubers to add colors from the Brights Collection:

Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, and Mango Melody (all new!), Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight.

 

Flower stencil closeup

When all the colors had been added, I carefully removed the washi tape and removed the stencil.  Then, I cut the piece down to use as my card front.

The greeting is from the Detailed with Love stamp set stamped on a scrap piece of Shimmery White card stock using Granny Apple Green ink.

I punched it out using 1 3/8" circle punch and sponged on Mango Melody ink along the edges.  I matted it onto a piece of Melon Mambo card stock punched out using a 1 3/4" circle punch.

The card front was attached to a Melon Mambo mat, then attached to Granny Apple Green card base.

Easy, easy!

Please check back over the next few days for more ideas using the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut paper as stencils.

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Detailed with Love

Ink: Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight

Paper: Granny Apple Green, Melon Mambo, Shimmer White, Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Batik Technique



Batik  is a wax resist method of dying fabrics originating in Indonesia.

In stamping,  the batik look can be achieved by using the emboss resist technique called Burned Batik.

It can also be achieved by applying color direct to paper and adding highlighting with white ink.

Both techniques add vibrant colors to any stamping project.

My May Fresh Card Making Tutorial will feature the Burned Batik and Batik Techniques.

You Move Me Interactive Cards

The You Move Me Bundle is retiring!

Here are some projects I've made using this bundle:

Pink Butterfly Card with Insert

Of course, to get the full effect of these cards, you need to see it in action. 

I created a short video showing how the butterfly flutters as you pull the card insert.

It's best to pull the insert out slowly to get the best fluttering effect.

You Move Me stamp set is retiring.

 I combined it with the Emboss Resist Technique to make this colorful, spring-themed card.

Here's how:

  1. To do the Emboss Resist Technique, first, swipe a piece of Glossy White card stock (you can also use regular matte Whisper White card stock) with an Embossing Buddy.  Then, stamp the images from You Move Me using Versamark or Whisper White Craft ink.  For this card, I used Whisper White craft ink. 
  2.  Heat emboss the images using a heat tool and white embossing powder.
  3. With a sponge or brayer, add different colors of ink over the embossed images.  For this card, I sponged on Tempting Turquoise, Melon Mambo, Marina Mist, Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight inks.  Wipe excess ink off using a tissue or paper towel.  The embossed white images will pop!
  4. Attach card front to Elegant Eggplant mat.  Attach to Tempting Turquoise card base.

Definitely Dahlia Eclipse Card

Eclipse Cards are all the rage! 

Cut out a shape using punches or dies, then layer the pieces back into the negative space creating dimension. 

It's like working a puzzle!

I decided to create this card using the Eclipse Technique paired with the retiring stamp set Definitely Dahlia.

Here's How:

  1. Ink up the Definitely Dahlia stamp first using Peekaboo Peach ink.  Tap the edges of the stamp using Flirty Flamingo ink.  Stamp on Whisper White card front.  Repeat to fill in the spaces.
  2. Place card front onto the Big Shot using the Magnetic Platform as part of your cutting sandwich.  Place the letters from Large Letters Framelits Die onto the card front.  Run through the Big Shot to cut out the letters.  Remove card stock from the dies, making sure to save all the pieces.
  3. Attach the stamped card front to Soft Suede card base using SNAIL Adhesive.

4. Replace the letters into the negative space using Mini Dimensionals to pop them up. 

5. Use Tombow Multi-purpose glue to add the inserts in the “B”, D”, and A”.  They lay flat while the rest of the letters pop up.  Use a paper piercing tool to move the inserts into place as needed.

6. Stamp greeting from Floral &Fauna onto a scrap piece of Peekaboo Peach card stock using Soft Suede ink.  Banner cut one edge.  Attach to Soft Suede mat, banner cutting one edge to match.  Attach to card front using Mini Dimensionals to pop it up.
