About Me

My photo
My name is Natalie and I love anything to do with card/paper. I have been a papercrafter for many years now and I never get bored playing with all the wonderful products available. I've been married to my wonderful husband Nathan for 35years now and we are still very much in love with each other as the first day we met each other. We have 3 wonderful children and 5 gorgeous grandchildren so we have lots to be thankful for. Since joining Stampin' Up! in 2018 I've grown so much in confidence with myself and I even tackle technology, which for me is a huge step to have taken, but I'm getting there slowly.

Scrimpy July blog hop - All things fabulous

Hello again and welcome to another team scrimpy blog hop, I can't believe it's come around again so quickly. This month the theme was 'Summer' and we all love the summer right! Everything seems brighter and happier in the summer lifting everyone's spirits, so I thought I'd use some lovely vibrant colours today for my card, hope you like it and I'd be really grateful if you left a comment. Please don't forget when you've finished looking at my project to hop onto all the other lovely ladies blogs and have a look at all of their amazing projects too, you'll find all the links below, thanks.
Now let's get started.....

Materials needed:

Whisper white thick cardstock
2pc - 4 3/4" x 4 3/4" for the front and inside of card.
1pc - 3" x 3 1/2" for the front layer piece
1pc - 3/4" x 3 1/2" for the sentiment
Scrap piece for stamping 3 x flowers for die cutting
Scrap piece for stamping anddie cutting your leaves

Daffodil delight cardstock
1pc - 5" x 10" scored on the longside @ 5" - card base
1pc - slightly bigger than 3/4" x 3 1/2 for the sentiment
1pc - 2" x 10" for the die cut pretty border pieces

Card recipe:

1. Cut, score and burnish your card base. Glue one of your whisper white pieces into the inside of your card, emboss the other piece and glue onto the front of your card.

2. Stamp and die cut all of your leaves, and your flowers ( these are stamped in 3 stages start with the largest stamp, ink off twice then stamp. The next largest stamp you need to stamp off once and then stamp on top of first image. The last stamp you need to stamp directly without stamping any ink off. This gives you 3 stages of colour using just one ink).

3. Before die cutting your borders place adhesive sheet onto the reverse side of your card and then die cut the borders from the front side (this makes it so much easier to adhere your delicate pieces without getting glue everywhere).

4. Now you need to stamp some of your leaves directly onto the whisper white layer that all of your flowers are going to be sitting on. Glue your flowers onto it using dimensionals.

5. Glue your die cut leaves onto your embossed front of card piece. Glue your border pieces onto the reverse of your card piece with the flowers on ( I found it easier to place the glue on the back of your card piece then you can line it up equally with both sides of your borders). Now you can peel the backing off of the adhesive sheet on the reverse of your borders, put glue where needed onto the middle reverse section of the flower piece and glue this flat onto the front of your card over the leaves. 

6. Stamp your sentiment and cut the edges of the card piece with an angle, glue it onto the daffodil delight piece of card and trim to leave a small edge showing. This is now glued on flat to your card front.

7. Using the non brush end of your stampin' blend colour your faceted gem and when dry adhere to the front of your card.

Thanks for popping by and taking a look.
