Random Stamping Revisited

My first real adventure into stamping was learning how to create pattern paper with stamps and ink. If you have stamps and ink, you will always have the perfect coordinating pattern paper.

A new class, Coffee and Cards, was held at a local coffee shop. Each guest created their own pattern paper using the Pretty Petals (C1599) and Doodled Design (A1170) stamp sets and White Daisy cardstock.

Starting with the largest image from the Pretty Petals, randomly stamp starting in one corner and moving down and across the page. You need to make a visual triangle with the large stamp image.

Now stamp the smaller flower (Honey ink), the leaf (Sweet Leaf ink), from the Pretty Petals stamp set, and the heart and the three dot cluster (Slate ink) found on the stamp Doodled Design.

Keep the images close and you can even overlap. This large piece will soon be cut into 12 cards.

We created 12 cards using three Make It From Your Heart Volume 2. Just like a cookbook, this wonderful how-to book, will walk you through a delicious crafting recipe.

See how stamping the images close together, gives you a great visual on your card.

I hope you enjoyed, I love to hear from you so please leave a comment.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

To dress up the card, I cut panels from Calypso (X7210B) pattern paper, my rule of thumb is to cut t…

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
