Brick Wall Flash

A quick and easy design which looks really elegant with the ribbon border. The Brick Wall Embossing Folder adds a bit of texture and dimension to the card. It is in the new 6X6″ design which allows you to run the design up the card or across it.  I love the Cottage Greetings set, it has the most gorgeous script style sentiments with matching complementing sentiments for inside the card or just to add to the bigger ones.

Top Tip: Stamp the flowers and sentiment before you punch them out so you can get them nicely positioned in the shape.

Made With Love Tied with a Bow

Yes folks I have used Flash Card 2.0 pieces again – so quick and easy when they are just sitting there waiting for me to pick them up! P1050117

 

The rabbit was stamped on the white piece and then cut out from it carefully leaving the outer edges in uncut. When you have the onesie stuck on you wont even know there is a space under there. As you can see there is no “hoppy little baby” sentiment beside the rabbit. I decided the stamp would be more useful if I trimmed the sentiment off. I can still pop it back in place if I want to use it but it sure does make inking up the rabbit easier if I don’t have it attached.

Here are some instructions:

  • Use the Scallop Tag Topper punch to shape each end of the Whisper White Strip then cut it at about 4 cm from one end.
  • Stamp the sentiment on the small piece and then add a star at each end of it.
  • Stamp the rabbit in the middle of the larger piece of white, punch or poke a hole through close to the rabbit to allow you to get your scissors in to cut around him out without having to cut up the outer cardstock.
  • Stamp the onesie on the coloured piece of card and fussy cut it out and glue the Rabbit in place. Add colour to the nose and upright ear.
  • Glue the onesie onto the top tag and add single stars and solid stars as a background.
  • Stamp the rabbit all over the Card Front
  • Use Dimensionals to mount both of the tag pieces on the card front aligning the cut end with edge of the card. Leave the scalloped tips with no Dimensionals so you can thread some ribbon through to tie them together. I used Whisper White 1/4″ cotton ribbon.
  • Add a tiny rhinestone to each of the bigger stars. Done!

Diagonal Flash Cards

I had an enquiry for instructions on how to create the Diagonal Flash Card from my Flash Birds post a few days ago so I did a wee photo tutorial which you can download below. Here are another couple of samples using this cut.

The one above uses the Made with Love Stamp set and the colours from the TGIF Challenge Pool Party, Basic Grey and Daffodil Delight. I used Markers to outline each of the small images which is a great way to add colour if you don’t like colouring in. I did have to add the tiny bit of white for the little banner but otherwise its all Flash Card pieces.

Here is another one but instead of neutral card for the top layer I used some DSP and used the same outlining method to do the background pattern. The white borders cover my little boo boo and I used the leftover strip for cutting the neutral pieces of the Flash cards. Here is the PDF for this technique. Flash Card Diagonal Cut – Flash Birdies Enjoy!
