Wednesday, 20 August 2014

Cut A4 Lost Lagoon card in half and then cut one piece in half again so that you have two quarters, each measuring 15cm x 10.5cm and one bigger piece. (You will not need the bigger piece).

Cut one of the quarters with card in portrait position to 6.5cm

You will now have two smaller pieces to make your flexi folds - (One measures 15cm x 6.5cm and one measures 15cm x 4cm) and one base card piece.

Score both flexi folds at one end. Scoring at 1.3cm (with card in landscape position), to form tabs.
At opposite ends measure a pencil line 0.7cm in and cut out a notch. See diagram – the size and location of notch does not matter.

Cut a mat out of Pool Party card to 14.3cm x 9.8cm Stamp with hardwood stamp (and soft suede ink) making sure that wood lines are vertical when card is in landscape position. You will not cover all the card with the stamp this way but you can stamp a second image lined up alongside the first. Mat onto base card.

Stamp the smallest flexi fold with the same stamp and ink; And in the same direction.

Emboss the largest flexi fold with your choice of embossing folder.

Put tape on the inside of the tabs. Opposite to where you have stamped or where the right side of the embossing is.

Tape to the back of the base card. Lining up the bottom edges. The larger flexi fold goes on the left and the smaller one goes on the right.

Make a slit for the notch of  the larger flexi fold by measuring in 4cm from the right hand side of the base card. Fold large flexi piece over and make a pencil mark (at the 4cm line) the length and position of the notch. Cut with a craft knife. You will be cutting through both base card and mat.

Make a slit for the notch of the smaller flexi fold by measuring in 5cm from the left hand side of the card with large flexi fold lying flat against the base card. Fold small flexi piece over and make a pencil mark (at the 5cm line) the length and position of the notch. Cut with a craft knife. You will just be cutting a line in the large flexi piece so unfold it before you cut it.

Decorate with punched fruit pieces and sentiment from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set

4. Make up the snow kid punch art as per picture using the ornament punch for the face and top part of hat. Use wide oval punch to create brim of hat. Draw in face and dauber rose colour on cheeks. Punch small circles for the hands (these are adhered on last).

CARD/PAPER Basic Black (BB), Whisper White (WW), Bashful Blue (Bbl)

INK PADS Basic Black (BB), Elegant Eggplant (EE), Bashful Blue (Bbl)

  1. Cut an A4 BB card in half long ways so that you end up with two long skinny pieces of card. Use one of these as the base for your card and fold in half.
  2. For the top awning, take a piece of BB card measuring 4¼” x 2” and score at ½” and 1⅜”. Scallop the edge nearest the 1⅜” fold line. Tip: Line up the scallop edge perfectly with a full scallop pattern on your punch guide to ensure you have no half scallop left at the end. Fold into valley fold at the ½” fold and into mountain fold at the 1⅜” fold line.
  3. Punch out another scalloped edge from a piece of 4 ¼” x 1 ¼” WW card and attach it just underneath the BB scalloped edge so that a small piece of white shows through underneath. (The card I did, that is posted on this website used small pieces of the doily triple layer punch but it was very fiddly to do). Score from the groove of each scallop up to the ½” score line. Set aside.

  6. Stamp the 25 Dec stamp in Bbl ink on white card and punch out with the decorative label punch. Stamp the word ‘cherish’ in BB ink on white card and punch out with the oval punch. Dauber edges in EE ink. Mat to centre of decorative label punched piece. Add two BB circles punched from crop-o-dile at either side if desired. Attach to bottom of card using dimensionals.
  7. Adhere BB top awning to top of card.
  8. Adhere perfume bottles to finish.

Instructions for Bottles:

Skinny Bottle – Stamp star ornament from delightful decorations in Bbl ink. Then using the rock and roll technique, ink edges of stamp in EE ink and stamp onto Bbl card. Punch out using oval punch, with the star pattern in the centre. Cut away unwanted Bbl card using the stamped image as a guide.  Use the small itty bitty circle punch to make a top for the bottle. Punch out of a left over piece of cardstock that has the EE ink on it. Once the bottle is adhered to the main card, put a rhinestone in the centre.

Round Bottle – Run a piece of Bbl card through the big shot with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. (Stamp small patterned stamps from delightful decorations stamp set first if desired). Punch out an ornament shape and cut the bottom pointed piece off. Punch a ½” circle for the bottle lid. Dauber the bottle and lid in EE ink. Tie a small piece of silver thread around the neck of the bottle. Stamp ‘Paris’ circle stamp from French foliage stamp set in BB ink on WW card. Punch out using ½” punch and attach to front of bottle.

Triangular Bottle - Stamp ornament from Contempo Christmas stamp set in EE ink onto WW card. Hand cut close to the stamped image. Cut angled sides using the dots on the image as a guide. On left side cut from just outside the top dot to just outside the second bottom dot. Do the same on the right hand side. Cut the bottom flat across. Use glue pen and glitter to add sparkle across the top of the bottle. Cut one petal from the 5 petal flower punched shape in EE card to make lid for bottle. Draw lines with a gel pen.
