Hello everyone. Thanks for stopping by. I am here to share another project for this week. In this card, I used Crafting Desert Divas’ Donut Party Stamps. I got this stamp last year and this is the first time I was able to use it in a project. I also made my own pattern paper using Adobe Illustrator. I enjoy creating patterns on my own instead of purchasing new pattern papers and Adobe Illustrator is a great tool in creating unique designs for your projects.
The supplies that I used in this project are Cardstock (white, teal, yellow and pink). Donut Party Stamps, small rectangle stitched and lace trim dies, Winsor & Newton markers, Memento Tuxedo Dye Ink, Tsukineko Emboss Ink, Ranger White Embossing Powder, heat gun, Tim Holtz stamp platform, and WRMK score and trimmer board and other basic crafting supplies.
I prepare the base of the cards first by scoring and trimming my white cardstock into 4-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ then I fold it in half. I also scored and cut the teal cardstock into 4-1/8″ x 5-1/8″ and the polka dot pattern paper into 4″ x 5″.
To assemble the belt of the card, I used the lace trim die in the pink cardstock and die cut it twice and the stitched rectangle die on the teal paper and yellow cardstock. The yellow cardstock is 1/8″ of an inch bigger than the teal rectangle die cut. I only traced I also cut a half an inch piece of teal cardstock for the belt. The papers I used are from my scrap stash. I always keep my scrap papers for future projects like this. I made a 1/4 allowance for the pink lace trims and glued both at the top and bottom of the half an inch teal cardstock.
In the stamp set, I choose the stamp with the bear and bunny eating donuts in a table. I am not sure if they are actually eating the donuts or selling them. The stamp reminded me of the time when my daughter and I went on a school field trip. We spend our time eating mini donuts while waiting for the theater to open to watch a play titled, Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairytale! We really had a great time. I digressed so let’s get back to card-making. I colored the stamp with my Winsor & Newton markers. I love these markers. They blend very well. Since the stamp does not come with a coordinating die, I fussy cut the stamp after I colored it.
I embossed the sentiment in the small teal rectangle stitched die cut paper using my Ranger White Embossing Powder and heat tool.
To put the card together, I adhered the pattern paper on top of the teal cardstock with a tape runner. Then I placed the belt half an inch away from the bottom of the card. I wrap it around the cardstock and used a scotch tape to secure the belt. I glued the sentiment and the stamp together with a tape runner. I decided to cover the table part of the stamp with the sentiment as it would not fit. With a foam tape, I adhered the stamps at the top of the belt to finish the card.
You can always recreate this card in different ways using different products. I hope you like this week’s card project and thank you once again for visiting. Till next time.
