Mystery Stamping Card Revealed Video Tutorial


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to reveal the cad that I made during Friday's Mystery Stamping Event that I held on my Facebook Business Page.  Were you able to join me live on Friday or did you catch the replay?  If not you will find the step by step tutorial here.  For those that missed the event and have no clue what I am talking about I held a event via Facebook Live on Friday morning at 10 am CST where I gave you clues and walked you through how to create the card that I had designed for you during the event.  The best part about this event was that you got to use any supplies that you wanted in your stash.  And we got to create a fun little card together by following the steps.  Here's a look at my card.

• A Stamp Set with both Sentiments and images
• Designer Series Paper or matching cardstock to your card base – four cut at 4” x 1”
• two 4 x 5 ¼ piece of Whisper White
• 2” Circle Punch or 2” Circle Die
• Coordinating Ink Pads: Two or three colors
• Ribbon and Embellishment
• Adhesive: Snail Adhesive/Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots if you need them

Tips & Tricks: 

During the live event and even on the replay that you can watch and play along with below I walked everyone through the steps to make this card design.  The first thing we did was take our chosen card base and fold in half.  I picked Mango Melody cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for my card base.  I picked this color because it was one of the colors in the designer series paper. Plus I really like this color it's a nice bright fun yellow orange color that just makes me happy.

Next we attached the four 4" x 1" strips of designer series paper to the card front.  You could have chosen to use matching cardstock cut the same way.  I think it would be pretty to have either used a border die, border punch, or even embossed cardstock for this step.  I picked the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper because it was part of Birthday Bonanza Suite of products and coordinates perfectly with the stamp set and the fun card design I had planned for this event.

Next we stamped the sentiment from the stamp set and stamped one of the images from the stamp set onto a 2" circle that was either die cut or punched out.  Before adding the circle on dimensionals we added two 3 1/2" strips of ribbon.  You could use any ribbon you wanted as long as it coordinated with your products.  I used the Daffodil Delight 1/4" Ruched Ribbon.  I love the texture the ribbon adds to the card and the pop of color.  Not that the products I picked didn't create a colorful card as it was but it just needed a little something.

To finish off the card and to solve the mystery we added an embellishment of your choosing.  I picked the Iridescent Sequin Assortment from the Annual Catalog.  I thought the fun colors played well with the colors in the card.  I know that they Iridescent Sequin Assortment doesn't have the same colors in it I thought they played nicely with the colors on the card.  I tired to use only the So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz sequins on my card.
