It's almost the end of January 2023, how quickly this month has gone by. But it's not over yet, and that means it's time for the first Stampin Friends Blog Hop of the year! And we have some fun cards to share with you! At the beginning of the year, I love to go through special occasions dates and see if I have cards on hand to match, if I don't I make a list and begin making the cards so I have them when the date arrives.
So sit back and relax and enjoy the hop and I hope you get some inspiration from us. I hope you joined me fromMaureen Rauchfuss's blog wasn't her card beautiful? Be sure to leave a comment and continue to Tiziana Milano's blog after visiting mine.
Here are the directions to make the reverse easel card:
Cardbase 8 1/2x5 1/2 score on 8 1/2 side at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4
Sweet Sorbet 5 1/2 x 1 1/4 and piece to cut out stitched circle
Basic White: 1/2 piece of cardstock to cut out Scalloped Contour, stitched circle and stamping the hearts and leaves
DSP: 4x5 1/4, 5 1/4 x 1 7/8 and 5 1/4x1
To stamp my images, I used the Stampin Write markers in Petal Pink, Sweet Sorbet, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow. I colored on the stamps with the lightest marker first, then I added the darker marker to add some dimension. Huff on the stamp and then stamp the images, I used the coordinating punch to cut them out. I stamped a few sprigs directly on the scalloped contoured shape and stamp the greeting. Attached the punched-out pieces over the sprigs.
Stamp a greeting on the Basic White stitched circle. and attach to the Sweet Sorbet circle.
Fold the cardbase in half on the 4 1/4 score line the fold the 2 1/8 score line in the opposite direction. Add the DSP layers. Attach the Scalloped Contour shape about halfway down the top section. Stand the card up like an easel and then attach the Sweet Sorbet 5 1/4x1 piece with dimensionls. The scalloped Contour piece will rest against this and hold the easel up. I attached the cirles to the bottom of the scalloped contour piece and used that as my easel base.
I hope you enjoyed my cards. Be sure to leave a comment and continue to the next blog!
Thanks for visiting.
