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.

  • Draw a line joining the 2 opposing corners diagonally and lengthways
  • Use your trimmer or your snips and cut along this line
  • Use your Bone Folder to fold one triangle down and one triangle over to form a card front
  • Cut a piece of card 10 cm x 14.4 cm or 4″ x 5 1/4″, then cut this diagonally in half
  • Cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 9.5 cm x 13.9 cm or 3 3/4″ x 5″, then cut this diagonally in half
  • Adhere these triangles together and then to your card front
  • Cut a piece of card 9.5 cm x 13.5 cm or 3 3/4″ x 5″ (insert)
  • Stamp on the insert where desired and adhere to the inside of the card
  • Burnish all score lines very well
  • Stamp and die cut a shape which will help form the closure of the card

It’s my great privilege to participate in this international blog hop. I’m celebrating all things Designer Series paper this month with Go For Greece with DSP. Hop along with us and be inspired.

Go For Greece with DSP

This week I’m actually concentrating on the Stamparatus. Just as well I love Designer Series Paper as well!

Go For Greece with DSP

What You Will Need:

Go For Greece with DSP

Use the Stamparatus to stamp your sentiment. In the image above you can see the sentiment didn’t stamp correctly and has a patchy ink coverage.

Go For Greece with DSP

Keep inking and stamping until you’re happy with a crisp, vibrant sentiment. You can see the difference between the 2 images.

Perfect Stamping

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.

Perfect Stamping

Here are links to some previous posts where I have used the Stamparatus

Special of the Week

I have a special deal this week just for Australian Residents

Perfect Stamping

Why a Silicone Mat?

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)
* Translucent grey
* Nonstick, heat-resistant silicone
* Works with any of our adhesives

Perfect Stamping with the Stamparatus

It was created by stampers for stampers, so it has all the features you want:
* Compatible with red rubber and photopolymer stamps
* 2 magnets to hold the paper in place
* Rulers on 2 sides for quick measuring
* 2 open sides so you can use larger paper

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

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.

Drapery Fold Portrait Card

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.

Watch the video and see how it was made and I’ll have the measurements at the bottom of the post.

Drapery Fold Portrait Card
This is the card I made with the leftover ‘skirt’ piece made during the video. It’s a tiny bit shorter than the original and ends in quite a sharp point which is hidden by the ribbon.
Drapery Fold Portrait Card
Add some Faceted Gems to make your card look a little more glamorous but make sure it coordinates well with the ribbon.

Drapery Fold Portrait Card Basics:

  • Cut card base to 14.9 cm x 21 cm or 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • Score and fold at 10.5 cm or 4 1/4″
  • Cut layer 1 of cardstock to 14.4 cm x 10 cm or 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Trim a piece of Designer Series Paper to 22.2 cm x 9 cm or 8 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
  • 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
  • Adhere the drapery fold with Tear & Tape Adhesive
  • 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
  • Add a separate bow with a Glue Dot, where desired
  • Stamp the sentiment and die cut the shape. Adhere in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Add a stamped image to the front of the card if desired.
  • Stamp the card insert and the envelope to finish the card off.
  • Adhere all layers with Multipurpose Liquid Glue
  • Add some Gold Faceted Gems or Pearl Basic Jewels where desired

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

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:

Scrapbook Tea Room

Back the photo in a complementary colour. I used Rich Razzleberry as it coordinates well with her outfit and the gorgeous Tea Room Specialty Designer Series Paper which is part of the Buy 3 Get the 4th FREE special – see all the details HERE.

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.

Scrapbook Tea Room

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
  • Adhere your matted photo piece with Foam Adhesive Strips
  • Journal on your page (I still have to do this yet)
  • Give your page a heading or title

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.

Freshly Brewed

Big Shot Embossing Mats

Big Shot Embossing Mats

What You Will Need:

Big Shot 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.

Big Shot Embossing Mats

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″
  • Scraps of Coastal Cabana and Very Vanilla for stamping and die cutting
  • Cut card insert 13.5 cm x 9.5 cm or 5 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
