RECESSED PANEL CARDS + A VIDEO!

For today’s video I wanted to create some Recessed Panel cards to share with you. In the video I show you how to make one version but I have some other variations to share too. Have you tried this technique? It’s a great way to showcase some beautiful papers.

Check the video. I have the other cards to share with you too.

This is the card created in the video. I think when I looked at it after I should have cut the top curve higher to showcase more of the paper. You just don’t think of that in the middle of filming. 🙂

This one is the same version using a different print of the Pansy Petals paper. I used the Basic Borders Dies to create the curves in both of them.

Instead of curves you could make straight cuts in the card. For a difference though cut the card vertically. This one uses the Hand-Penned paper.

What about adding the pretty papers on top of the recess. This is a great way of showing that beautiful paper. This one uses the Art Gallery Designer Series Paper. For this I cut 2 angle cuts in the bottom right corner of the paper and added strips of the Poppy Parade card behind to highlight it.

I hope you get to create these soon. Choose whatever way you like to.

FRIDAY FLICKS – 5 WAYS WITH PRETTY PAPER + VIDEO!

Today for our Video I have put together some ideas for you to drag out some of that stashed paper that you are storing up for a special occasion and actually use it. Friday Flicks is showing 5 Ways to use your Pretty Paper!

I will share the cards and general measurements below the video. If you are receiving this update by email and the video is not showing then head to the Blog Post or it is now on Youtube as well.

Have you subscribed to my Youtube Channel yet? Be sure too so you don’t miss out on any videos. Head -> Here.

Below is the Flower and Field Strips card that was featured in the video.

The measurements are below.

White Mat – 13.8cm x 9.5cm 5 x 3 3/4″

Strip 1 – 13.4cm x 4.3cm 4 7/8″ x 1 3/4″

Strip 2 – 13.4cm x 3cm 4 7/8″ x 1 1/8″

Strip 3 – 13.4cm x 1.5cm 4 7/8″ x 5/8″

Card 2. Turn and Flip (Inspired by a card by Klompen stampers)

The sizes for cutting can be any measurements. These are my suggestions.

Cut paper to 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″

Cut the paper at 7cm 3″

Turn anti-clockwise and cut each paper at 8.4cm approximately 4″. Flip over 2 of the pieces and adhere straight to the card front.

Card 3: Paper Blocks (Inspired by a card by Lisa Pretto)

Cut 2 pieces of paper. They can be the same piece but reverse one side – 1) 8cm x 9.5 3 1/8″ x 3 3/4″ 2) 8cm x 7cm 3 1/8″ x 2 3/4″

Card 4: Half piece

14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ Cut the piece in half and flip one.

Card 5: This works well with a large flower print.

Fussy cut the flowers leaving an edge around the flowers. Raise up off the card with Dimensionals. Use a different pattern print for the card front. TIP: Use vellum between the pieces to break the elements up.

5 Cards and there are so many other ways too which I will share soon.

Hope you like this video and ideas.

Have a great day,

Jenny

5 WAYS WITH PAPER – #5!

OK, last one in this series of 5 Ways with Paper.  Have you been inspired by them?  Hope so anyway. 🙂

Today’s card in inspired by this card from Julie’s Stamping Spot.

I liked the strips and having the contrast card on it.  I changed mine around a little.  I think I will use this idea more often.  I do love that Tranquil Tide colour though too.

The Crumb cake strip is embossed with one of the Petal Pair embossing folders. The sentiment is from the Southern Serenade.

TO CREATE YOUR OWN:

You can make the strips any size but I will tell you the measurements of mine.  I like the different widths of the strips.

Whisper White card mat is 9.5cm x 13.8cm (3 3/4″ x 5 3/8″)

Strips measure: Left – 4.5cm x 13.4cm (1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″)

Centre – 3cm x 13.4cm (1 1/9″ x 5 1/4′)

Right – 1.5cm x 13.4cm (5/8″ x 5 1/4″)

Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to drop a comment occasionally.  I love to hear what you think and where you are from.

Don’t forget though there is only one week left of the Designer Series Paper Sale where you can choose 1 free pack when you purchase 3.

5 WAYS WITH PAPER – #4!

Today – DAY 4 of “5 WAYS WITH PAPER”.  What have you thought so far??

Today’s card – why not feature the paper! With all the beautiful prints you can use them just as they are.

This lovely print from Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper is so detailed with the veins of the leaves.  I decided to make a Sympathy card with this paper.  Good to always have on hand sadly.

It’s a very simple layout with a window highlighting the paper.  The leaves are from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits. I cut one from Crumb Cake and one from Vellum.  The sentiment is from the Better Together set.

Last one tomorrow.  Hope you will tune in.  I have had fun creating with the papers.  I should do more of it.  How about you?
