Beauty of Friendship Twisted Easel card


Hello,
Remember I made an easel card in a previous blog post?
Here is another version, but a twisted easel card.  This time I used a sentiment as the stopper for the card.
Instead of a horizontal score, you make a diagonal score from the upper right corner to the lower left corner.
Then, you only add the liquid glue on the bottom of the diagonal score.

Here's another twisted easel card using the Butterfly stamp set, dies, and some Blushing Bride and a Basic White card base. You can basically use any small image as the "stopper" for the card to stand up.

Sweet Ice Cream Easel card

 Hello, 

Another card using soon to be retired items. I will miss the ice cream paper, punch and stamps.  I had fun with this one and made an easel card that stands up.



Supplies:

·         Stamp SetsSweet Ice Cream Stamp Set (154456)

·         Card Stock – Terracotta Tile Cardstock (150884); Basic White Cardstock (159276)

·         Stamp Pads – Blackberry Bliss (147092)

·         Misc. – Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper (DSP); (154167); Stampin’ Up! Dimensionals (104430); Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch (154241)

Measurements:  

·         Basic White (level 1):                       4-1/4” x 11” (score at 2-3/4” and 5-1/2”)

·         Terracotta Tile (level 2):                  4” x 5-1/4”

·         Ice Cream Corner DSP (level 3):   1” x 4-1/4” (2 pieces)                      

·         Basic White (level 4):                      1-7/8” x 4-1/4”                      

Instructions:

1.    After scoring the level 1, fold cardstock in half first, then fold that in half again

2.    Punch 3 ice cream scoops in different colors from the DSP, and a cone from the DSP.  Adhere the cone first at the bottom of the level 4 Basic White, then use Dimensionals to raise the scoops, only using one on the bottom for the two bottom scoops, and two Dimensionals for the top scoop. Stamp the sentiment on the corner next to the cone.

 3.    Adhere the two strips of the DSP on the two sides of the Terracotta Tile cardstock

4.    Adhere the Basic White with the ice cream cone on top of the strips of DSP

 5.    Only place adhesive on the bottom part of the level 1 and place the Terracotta Tile piece leaving a slight border around the Terracotta Tile.

6.    Using paper snips to cut out a single ice cream cone from the DSP, place a Dimensional on the back and place it in the middle of the inside of the card.  This will hold the easel card on display.  

    To show how to make the easel card work, I googled "easel card instructions" and found this printout and cut one out and add to my card when I send it.

Luv2Stamp Group Blog Hop-May2021



 

Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group's MAY 2021 Blog Hop!  We are excited to share projects with you this year, we hope to inspire you to create beautiful new projects.  Each month we will have a different them based on the next month's celebrations using Stampin' Up! products.
Once you are done with each post, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of Blog Hop participants, you can click on their name to go to their post, or you can click the next button to go to the next post in line.
Happy crafting!  This month's theme is: WHAT'S NEW
Here's my card, a Fun Triple Fold using the new Hand Penned DSP. 
Here it is opened up with belly band off.

Here's how to make the card (video tutorial at end of blog). 
Start with a piece of Blushing Bride measuring 4-1/4" X 11" and score it at 1-1/2", 3", 5-1/2", and 8".

Using a piece of Hand Penned DSP measuring 4" X 6".
 Then, cut it at 1-1/4" then at 2-1/8" and you will get 3 pieces.
You'll also need a card base in Basic White measuring 4-1/4" X 5-1/2".
Using Memento Ink to randomly stamp the flowers from the Hand Penned stamp set around the edges.
Then use the "filler" stamps to match the colors on the DSP, I used  Blushing Bride, full strength, and "stamped off"(onto scratch paper first) using the Misty Moonlight and Old Olive.
Then, adhere the pink part and center it on the base card.
For the belly band, I used Misty Moonlight measuring 1" X 11" scored at 3-1/2" and 7-7/8".
Then, I cut out an oval in Blushing Bride and stamped the sentiment from the Tranquil Thoughts stamp set and punched a heart out. And I added a few Silver & Clear Epoxy Essentials around the heart.
