Paisleys & Posies Paisley and Gingham
F un thank you card using Stampin' Up! products and a technique that uses Glossy Cardstock.
Cut cardstock pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer:
- card from Old Olive Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 3-5/8" x 4-7/8" from Night of Navy Cardstock
- 3-1/2" x 4-3/4" from Glossy White Cardstock
- 1" x 4-1/2" from Pumpkin Pie Cardstock
- 2"x 2-1/2" from Night of Navy Cardstock
- 2" x 2-1/2" from Old Olive Cardstock
Lay the Glossy White Cardstock glossy side up on your work surface so the long edge is horizontal. Drop a few drops of Old Olive Classic Ink Refill and a few drops of Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink Refill randomly on the bottom and up the left side of the glossy cardstock. Spritz the cardstock with water (an old Stampin' Mist bottle filled with water works great). Allow the ink to run and bleed together. You can tip the cardstock a little to help blend the colors together. Blot off excess ink and water using a paper towel. Then, use a clean paper towel to polish the cardstock and remove any patterns created by the weave of the paper towels. Set the glossy cardstock aside to let it dry.
Unlock the Banner Triple Punch. Slide the strip of Pumpkin Pie Cardstock into the punch as far as it will go. Punch.
Mount the "thankful, grateful, blessed" sentiment from the Paisleys & Posies Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp the sentiment in the center of the strip about 1/4" in from the notch with the notched edge on the left.
Pick out the detailed paisley framelit from the Paisely Framelits. Place the smaller Night of Navy rectangle on the Precision Base Plate on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the detailed paisley framelit on top. Place a Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Mount the smaller detailed paisley image from the Paisleys & Posies Set on Block C. Ink it up with the Night of Navy Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the Old Olive rectangle. Leave the stamp on the block as you will be using it again later.
Pick out the solid paisley framelit that cuts out the medium sized, smooth-sided paisley from the Paisley Framelits. Place the stamped Old Olive rectangle on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the solid paisley framelit on top so the image is centered inside the framelit. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the detailed paisley cutout over the top of the stamped, solid paisley cutout.
If the glossy cardstock is dry, re-ink the paisley stamp on Block C with the Night of Navy Ink Pad and stamp it randomly around on the glossy cardstock multiple times. Let some of the paisleys curve into each other. Remember to re-ink the stamp each time before stamping. Be careful not to let the stamp slide on the glossy surface. Allow the stamped images to dry.
Adhere the sentiment strip to the upper right side of the stamped glossy cardstock so the top edge of the strip is about 1/4" in from the top edge of the glossy cardstock and the right end of the sentiment is about 3/4" in from the right side of the glossy cardstock. Use Paper Snips to trim off any excess Pumpkin Pie Cardstock.
Adhere the glossy cardstock to the center of the larger Night of Navy rectangle.
Cut a 4-1/2" piece of Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon.
Lay the ribbon piece across the card front so it goes across the end of the sentiment strip between the sentiment and the right edge. Flip the layer over and fold the ends of the ribbon over. Adhere the ends of the ribbon in place with pieces of Tear & Tape Adhesive.
Remove the protective backing from the Tear & Tape strips and add more SNAIL to the back of the cardstock. Adhere the card front to the front of the Old Olive card.
Cut a 4" piece of Night of Navy 1/2" Gingham Ribbon. Tie it to the ribbon on card front in a half knot so the knot is centered over the sentiment strip. Trim the ends.
Adhere the paisley cutouts to the right side of the card front so it curves down and to the left and the fat end of the paisley overlaps the sentiment a bit and is tucked behind the ribbon a bit.
