Waterfront Delft Windmill
L ovely thank you card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and doily pieces to the following sizes using a Stampin' Trimmer and Paper Snips:
- card from Blueberry Bushel Cardstock at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" from Blueberry Bushel Cardstock
- 3" x 4" from Whisper White Cardstock
- half a Pearlized Doily
Place the large white rectangle on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool so a short side is up against the top edge of the tool and a long side is up against the left edge of the tool.
Use the stylus to dry emboss a line down at each 1/2" mark.
Rotate the white rectangle 90 degrees so a long side is now up against the top edge of the tool and a short side is up against the left edge of the tool.
Use the stylus to dry emboss a line down at each 1/2" mark. You should now have a grid pattern on the white rectangle resembling tile work.
Place a piece of Grid Paper on top of a Stampin' Pierce Mat to protect it from ink. As you are ready to stamp on each piece of cardstock using the Waterfront Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the "thanks" sentiment from the Waterfront Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Blueberry Bushel Ink Pad. Stamp it in the lower right corner of the dry embossed white rectangle within one of the little squares.
Adhere the dry embossed and stamped white layer to the front of the Blueberry Bushel card.
Mount the roughly triangular shaped stack of swooshes image from the Waterfront Set on Block I. Use the brush tip of the Blueberry Bushel Marker to carefully ink up only the center of the stamp about 3/4" wide so that you have a straight line coming down on either side of the inked up portion. Breathe on the stamp to moisten the ink and stamp in the center of the 3" x 4" white rectangle about 1-1/2" from the bottom. Leave the stamp on the block, you'll use it again later.
Mount the small circle image from the Waterfront Set on Block A. Ink it up with the Blueberry Bushel Ink Pad. Stamp it on top of the swooshes column on the left side so the left edge of the circle is pretty much in line with the left edge of the column. Re-ink the stamp and stamp it on the top of the swooshes column on the right side so the right edge of the circle is pretty much in line with the right edge of the column and the top is even with the top of the other circle.
Mount the long, single swoosh image from the Waterfront Set on Block H. Ink it up with the Blueberry Bushel Ink Pad. Stamp it across the top of the column at an angle so the ends stick out to either side. Re-ink the stamp and stamp it again at the opposite angle so it crosses over the first line in the center of the top of the column.
Use the Blueberry Bushel Marker to color in any spaces as necessary to make the image look like a windmill.
Re-ink the roughly triangular shaped stack of swooshes image from the Waterfront Set on Block I using the Blueberry Bushel Ink Pad. Ink up the entire stamp this time. Stamp once onto Grid Paper. Without re-inking, stamp it again on the bottom of the white rectangle so the pointy bit is pointing down and there is a straight line across at the base of the windmill. Shift the stamp over slightly and stamp again to fill in any white areas.
Pick out the oval framelit from the Layering Ovals Framelits that cuts out a 3" long oval. Place the stamped windmill scene on the Cutting Pad on top of the Magnetic Platform on the Big Shot. Place the oval framelit on top so it is centered over the windmill scene. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Pick out the scalloped oval framelit from the Layering Ovals Framelits that cuts out a 3-1/2" long scalloped oval. Place the Blueberry Bushel rectangle on the Cutting Pad on top of the Platform on the Big Shot. Place the scalloped oval framelit on top. Place another Cutting Pad on top and run through the Big Shot.
Adhere the windmill scene oval to the center of the Blueberry Bushel scalloped oval.
If you haven't already done so, cut a Pearlized Doily in half. Adhere one half to the back of the matted windmill ovals so it peeks out to the upper left side and the pearlized side is showing. Put the other half away to use on a future project.
Adhere the matted windmill ovals and doily half to the front of the card so the ovals are centered side to side and the top of the ovals are about 1/2" from the top.
Cut a 4" piece of Whisper White 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.
Tie a half knot in the center of the ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon at an angle to the lower right side of the windmill scene oval.
Carefully peel a large pearl from a sheet of Pearl Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backing as well. Adhere it to the top of the windmill where the blades intersect.
