To A Wild Rose Split Lace Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; first off let me say Happy Valentine's Day.  I wanted to share with you a super cute card that I made a few months ago using the To A Wild Rose Bundle and the Stitched Lace Die.  I love the sentiments and the layering images of the To a Wild Rose Stamp Set so when I designed this card I knew I wanted to use this stamp set and I wanted to do a split card base, but the question was what to do the split with.  I decided to use the Stitched Lace Die because I could do a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 piece of cardstock and cut it down and get three pieces from it.  Here's a look at my card.


I used my Stamparatus to stamp all my roses and leaves.   I find it easier to use my Stamparatus to get perfectly layered images each time with this layering stamp set.  I stamp each layer with the lightest color first and then the darker color.  For the rose I used Flirty Flamingo and Melon Mambo inks.  For the leaves I used Pear Pizzazz and Old Olive Inks.  I used Tuxedo Black to stamp the outline; which by the way I usually stamp first because I find it easier to line the layering stamps up.

For the center of the rose I stamped it in So Saffron ink.  Once I had everything stamped it was time to cut everything out with the matching dies.  I then used the Stitched Lace Die and ran it through my die cutting machine with a piece of whisper white cardstock.  Once I had everything done I cut them into strips (1 1/2 x 4 1/4").  I then cut off a 1/2" strip from the bottom of the card base, and then cut off another inch.  I needed the 1/2" strip to replace at the bottom of the die cut strip.


After cutting everything apart it was time to put it back together.  I added the strips of the lace with a little liquid glue and then did the same with the strips of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock over where I added the lace piece.  I also repeated this process on the back inside of the card this added stability to the reassembled card base place hides the ugly surgery we did to this card.  I added a very thin strip of Melon Mambo cardstock to add a little interest to the card.   I then added the die cut rose and leaf to the top section letting it overlap the lace just a little.  I then stamped my sentiment in Tuxedo Black ink to finish my card.

Thanks for dropping by I hope you give this technique a try.  You will love doing a little surgery on your cards to create a very dramatic look with out to much work.  If you need any of the supplies I used to you can pick them up in my online store by clicking on the item in the Stampin' Up!

To a Wild Rose Facebook Live Mini Class Replay

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the three projects that we made the other night during my Facebook Live this week.  During this weeks Facebook Live Mini Class in my Crafty Corner I walked you through how to create each card.  Here's a look at all three projects.

I think these are just super cute cards and fun to make.  A couple of them do have a little Stampin' Blend Coloring but in the video I walk you through how to do that with some tips and tricks along the way.

Video Tutorial: 

The video above is the entire unedited Facebook Live Replay.  Nothing has been taken out so it's just as it was that night during the actual event.  If you are viewing this by email you will have to click on the image below to view the video.  

Closer Look at the Cards We Made:  


For this card I did just some super simple stampin' blends coloring.  


This is the card that I call Erica's Super Easy Fancy Fold.  I CASEd this card from Erica Cerwin at Pink Buckaroo Design.  It was such a fabulous card I had to try it.  I did link to her version of this card above.  

For this card I wanted to showcase the black and white outline with just a little pop of color.  


Thanks for dropping by today.  I hope that you have enjoyed this little walk through.  If you want to see cleaned up versions of the video I did do all three cards in their own video cleaned up so you can find that on my YouTube channel.  

Happy Stampin'
