The other day I shared a card with Double Hinge Stamping. Today I have the video on how to do that with Stamparatus Dragonfly Dreams. There are a lot of tips and tricks I share throughout the video and it is an edited Live With Libby (Facebook). Grab a cuppa, sit back and watch as I share how to do this technique using the Stamparatus.
Stamparatus Dragonfly Dreams
This is a really easy card to make with the help of the Stamparatus. Plus I share a foolproof way of stamping the body of the dragonfly perfectly every time.
This week I’m focussing on the Perfect Stamping with the Stamparatus. This is a must-have in every paper crafters arsenal whether you’re a card maker, scrapbooker or some other type of paper crafter, if you want to get your stamps aligned, you need this tool
A must-have tool for all stampers, the Stamparatus helps you perfectly align stamp images, stamp multiples of the same project quickly and precisely, and get complete ink coverage.
Here are links to some previous posts where I have used the Stamparatus
Easily assemble embellishment–just put a dot of adhesive on the sheet and use both hands to assemble the embellishment, then pop it off the sheet when the glue is dry.
Also, pop it in the top corner of the Stampartus where the hinge parts meet and it will lift your card just enough for you to stamp perfectly in the corner.
It’s also good for protecting the foam mat used for photopolymer stamps – makes cleaning up easy.
* 1 sheet
* 6″ x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm)

I have a video for you today which is an Edited Live With Libby from Tuesday, last. The Drapery Fold Portrait Card is made using the Tea Room Specialty Designer Series paper. I have made this type of fold before but as a landscape version, which you can see HERE. Today’s is a portrait version.
Drapery Fold Portrait Card
This is the card I made during the video and below you will be able to see the card you can make with the leftover folded piece, so you can actually get 2 cards from the same piece of D.S.P.
I’ve used Calypso Coral card and ink as the basis for the card. Adding some Pearls helps add some glamour to the card. The Tea Room Combo Pack of ribbon coordinates really well and really dresses this card up.
Score on the long side (22.2 cm or 8 3/4″) at 3 cm; 4.5 cm; 7 cm; 8.3 cm; 10.8 cm; 12 cm; 14.6 cm; 16 cm; 18.4 cm and 19.7 cm or 1 1/4″; 1 3/4″; 2 3/4″; 3 1/4″; 4 1/4″; 4 3/4″; 5 3/4″; 6 1/4″; 7 1/4″ and 7 3/4″
Start at the bottom edge (3 cm or 1 1/4″) to about 1.2 cm or 1/2″ from the top right edge of the D.S.P.
Create pleats by folding mountain, valley fashion until all score lines are pleated
Cut ribbon and adhere at the top of the D.SP. I roll up Glue Dots and place on the front of the card on each side then adhere ribbon to the Glue Dots and flip the card over and attach to the back of the card with Tear & Tape
I have another scrapbook layout for you today which I created this week to go with my theme suite for the week called Tea Room. Scrapbook Tea Room features Miss Scarlett in one of her daycare photos in 2017 when she was 2 1/2.
Scrapbook Tea Room
Do you notice her hair is up in pigtails? She’s such a little scallywag. She often refuses to let anyone do her hair. The Carers and Teachers at Daycare are allowed as is her father if it’s for her dance class. In a perfect Miss Scarlett world of ballerinas, unicorns and bunnies, she would be ‘Batman’.
What You Will Need:
A photo – I’ve used a 6″ x 4″ or 15 cm x 10 cm but you could easily use a larger photo or a number of small photos
Trim your chosen Designer Series Paper adding 6 cm or 2 1/2″ to the length and width and adhere the matted photo in the centre. Ink around the Designer Series Paper using a sponge and coordinating ink. I used Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin’ Pad.
This is a great layout to use up leftover strips of Designer Series Paper cut from other projects.
Scrapbook Tea Room Basics
Ink around the entire page with the sponge and the same colour as before
Use the same coloured ink and stamp in each corner. I used the line image full strength and stamped off with the filled in image from the Time For Tea Stamp Set
Cut the strips into varying widths and lengths.
Ink around each strip with the same coordinating colour used before
Play with the strips until you’re happy with their position and adhere to each other, finally adhering to the page
Have you seen the Big Shot Embossing Mats? They’re fantastic and you get such great results easily. Hop along with the Latte Girls today as we share tips, trick and projects using these wonderful Embossing Mats.
Here’s the video from Stampin’ Up! which shows you how to use the mats. You can make your sandwich upside down so you can see your stamped image. You may just have to use some washi tape or a post-it note to hold it in place.
I think the above image shows the embossing and if you look closely at the flowers, leaves and teacup you’ll see they’re all a bit ‘puffy’ and that’s what the embossing after die cutting does to each shape.
Stamp first, then die cut and leave the image in the die then, use the embossing mats to emboss.
Big Shot Embossing Mats Basics
Cut the card to 29.7 cm x 10.5 cm or 11″ x 4 1/4″
Designer Series paper cut to 14.9 cm x 6.3 cm or 11″ x 2 1/2″
