All supplies Stampin' Up
The first card demonstrated was an Easel Card. The tutorial for how to make this card can be found at http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/. Click on Resources at the top right, then Projects, then scroll down alphabetically until you find Easel Card.This card was CASED from RobinStamps on splitcoaststampers.com. See her card here (click on here) posted January 29, 2010.
Here is a side view of the card so that you can see the easel set up. Stamp sets: Happy Memories and Whimsical Words (both SAB 2010); Cardstock: Meant to use Pretty in Pink but picked up a retired pink instead, So Saffron, and Whisper White; Markers: So Saffron, Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery; Scallop Trim Border Punch (SAB 2010), Soft Subtles brads, Tea Party DSP.
For a 4 1/4" square card, you begin with a 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of cardstock.
Then pull the card over so that the base is down. Then decorate as desired. The card we made had "stops" about 1/3" way of base - would have been better to make them at 1/2 the distance of the card base for it to stand better. Here we used flowers punched from the Trio Flower Punch with brads in them as the stopper. Other things used: buttons, punched shapes like circle(s) or oval(s) raised up on dimensionals, ribbon, a panel (with or without decorative edge) at bottom of bottom part, best raised up on dimensionals.
Brayering Bride Paper
This card is CASED from calebandmemsmom. See her card here posted at splitcoaststampers on January 27, 2010.
The white Bride's Paper on page 158 of the Stampin' Up Catalog can have ink brayered on. The design in the paper resists the ink, but the background soaks it up. We made sure we had the brayer well inked and inked and brayered several times, coating the paper. If there is some unevenness, it seems to go away after a while -- I think the ink soaks in.
I made a couple more cards trying out Certainly Celery Ink and then Pretty in Pink Ink.
