Hello and welcome to another Stamping Around The World Tutorial Blog Hop. I am excited to share again with this amazing, talented group. You might have come from Jo Anne’s blog -> HERE or just starting out. Either way, enjoy the hop.
Each month this group compiles a Bundle of Projects to send out free following orders from our customers, or people are able to purchase the tutorials regardless of where they live in the world.
We also come together to Blog Hop this time each month. For our projects for the Blog Hop we create a project using the same stamp set we used in our Tutorials. This month I used To A Wild Rose.
This is the card I have to share with you today. It is not an original design and I have seen it on a few blogs but I am not sure what it is called. I am calling it a Topper Card. 🙂 I have the measurements below.
THE TOPPER CARD
I have used the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper for the front of the card. Isn’t it pretty?
I stamped the large sentiment image on the first card. It is a beautiful sentiment. What a blessing it is to have a true friend. I am very thankful for the blessing of a number of true friends. I really loved the sentiment and wanted to use it. The sentiment was diecut with the stitched label shape in the Wild Rose dies. I backed it with some Silver Glimmer Paper which I had punched out with the Tailored Tag punch and cut in half.
When I finished the card the sentiment seemed to be too large and out of proportion or so I thought. What do you think? I re-stamped a smaller sentiment to go on the front. The smaller sentiment was diecut with the Stitched Labels dies.
The rose in this set is created with 3 stamps. You can use one, two or all three stamps together. I used all 3 in this one. The rose was stamped on scrap white paper. Firstly stamp the outline rose image in Blackberry Bliss, the sparser filler image was stamped in Blackberry Bliss and the more detailed centre stamp was stamped in Rich Razzleberry. I love how you get the depth to the flower with the multiple images.
I will say it can be a little tricky lining up the 3 images for the rose. I will share a tip with you.
TIP FOR STAMPING THE ROSE: On each of the stamps I made a mark in pen on the back of each stamp in the same position. When you stamp you can position the stamp in the same orientation each time. It saves so much time and frustration – let me tell you. Here is a photo showing the marks on the stamp. I hope this tip helps.
THE INSIDE OF THE TOPPER CARD
Of course, don’t miss the inside. I had a strip of designer series paper over so I adhered that on to a piece of white card. I had stamped an extra rose as I wasn’t sure which one to use for the front. So I adhered that to the bottom right corner and trimmed off the overhang. (This rose was stamped in blackberry Bliss for the outline image and Rich Razzleberry for the centre).
MAKE YOUR OWN TOPPER CARD
For the base card, cut card to 10.5cm x 21cm, score at 10.5cm. (4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″).
Cut Designer Series Paper to 10.1cm x 10.1cm (4 1/8″ x 4 1/8″)
Cut White card for inside to 10.1cm x 10.1cm (4 1/8″ x 4 1/8).
To create the Topper part. Make this any shape you desire. I have used the Layering Circles Framelits.
The topper is placed on the base card on the fold line with half of the topper overhanging. Remember when you add the topper to the top of the card only place your dimensionals to the lower half of the Topper shape so you don’t see them at the back.
