How To Make A Twisted Easel Card

 

Hello again everyone. DT Vannessa back again with another tutorial and another fabulous new clear stamp set from Stampers Delights. 

Today I am going to show you how to make a twisted easel card using the gorgeous Anime Sweet Angel clear stamp set. This one is just beautiful and such a perfect image for sympathy cards as well as other occasions where an angel would be perfect, such as thank you and Christmas cards. 


For this card technique, you need a card base and the layers for it and then another card front and the layers for that one as well. I have gone for soft greens, white and golden yellows on my card, which I thought were soft enough for a sympathy card. 



To make the twisted part of the easel card, you fold the card front on a diagonal.



When it stands up, it will be twisted to the side. 


For the next step, make up the inside of the card base on the bottom part which will be on show when the card is open as well as the card front. I always make my front more layered and embellished than the inside of the card. 

Depending on the embellishments or layers I have used, I sometimes use a sentiment, popped up on foam pads on the bottom layer to hold the card open. On this one the velvet ribbon was thick enough to do that for me. 

 

This is how the card looks from the side when the front has been added. You only need to glue the card front to the folded half that will be stood up.


Next I coloured up my image - you can find the Copics combos at the end of this tutorial. I wanted a delicate scalloped frame for my image, but all my dies were too long, so I will show you a little trick to making them fit - it is a really easy one! 


Simply cut the die cut rectangle, so it is more or less the same length as the image. Then glue the smaller piece over the larger piece, lining up the scallops. 


And now the stamped image fits perfectly! And you can hardly tell where the cut line is either. 



Now add the stamped image and further embellishments to the card front as well as a sentiment. Doesn't this just look stunning?!


And here is the stamp set alongside my card.


Copics Used:
Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R30, R20
Hair - E30, E31, E34, E33 
Eyes - YG63, YG67
Dress - YG11, YG41, G12, G02, Y21, Y23, Y26
Wings & Feathers - E50, E51, Blender
Pedestal - W3, W4, W7
Ground - W00, W0, W3

And that's all from me for this tutorial. If you would like to read more about this card, then please pop on over to my blog where I have added more details on it.

White on White Card Tutorial using Chibi Angel


Hello everyone, DT Vannessa here, and welcome to my first tutorial for September using the gorgeous new clear stamp sets released at Stampers Delights this month.

For today's tutorial, I am going to show you how to make a white on white card. As you probably can tell, I love my layers and patterned papers, so making a CAS card or a mostly white card is a real challenge for me. However, with a few embellishments, it can become a very beautiful card. 

I am using the adorable Chibi Angel stamp set, which just has so many possibilities and could easily be combined with several other stamp sets from Stampers Delights too. 


Firstly, when I make white on white cards, I tend to use different white card as the shades of white are always slightly different as you can see in this first photo. Here I have my card base, mat layer and "patterned paper" layer (it will become patterned) as well as a few die cuts, my stamped and fussy cut image and some ribbon. 


I embossed the "patterned paper" layer using a snowflakes embossing folder - this is my first layer that would usually be patterned paper.


I then coloured my image using Copic markers - you can find the list of combos used at the end of this tutorial. I also stamped some of the snowflakes from the set using a pale aqua ink.


I then attached everything together and added some Stickles to some of the snowflakes on the embossed layer and to the snowflake die cuts as well. I also added some clear and silver Gelly Roll Pen to the wings and stars in the stamped image as well. 


And here is the card with its stamp set - doesn't it look so pretty with all those snowflakes and that texture behind the stamped image.



Copics used:

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R30, R20
Hair - BG000, BG10, BG11
Eyes - BG13, BG15
Wings - N0, N1
Dress - BG11, BG13
Snow - BG0000, BG000, BG10
Base - E40, E41, E42, E43

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial. I would love to see you share your white on white cards in the Stampers Delights Facebook Group

PLEASE READ, WE HAVE SOME CHANGES!!!!
THIS FACEBOOK PROGRESSIVE CHALLENGE WILL START ON 2nd July AND RUN THROUGH WEDNESDAY 31st July.



We are trying things a little different this month, which I hope will help streamline and automate our growing Progressive Challenge.
Wendy is doing a fantastic job giving out the image each month but I feel it is time to free her up a little, although she will still be helping to host and manage participation, so this is why we have started a free membership.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each month on the 1st you will receive an email that will notify you of a new post which will be pinned to the top of the facebook page. You will also see a category which says "Products", the chosen image for the given month will be there ready for you to download, the product will disappear on the last date of that given month and on the 1st of the next month, another image will be available and the occasional bonus when we have any events.
PLEASE NOTE we will still be monitoring participation.
Nothing has changed with the rules. We will have special promotions that can also be used in the challenge especially picked out by the Stampers Delights Design Team, you can find the category in store. Don't forget to check out our fabulous images in store here https://stampersdelights.com/.../ALL_DIGITAL_STAMPS...

Thank you for visiting and we will see you next month!

How To Make A Shaped Easel Card

 


Hi Everyone!  Monica here and I'm back with another easy card tutorial.  Today I'm going to be showing you how to  make a shaped easel card.  This is a great interactive card for beginners.  This card can be made with any shaped die you may have.  




I was inspired to make this type of card because it is a beautiful way to showcase a beautiful image and allow the recipient to enjoy the the work by setting it in place.  

I used the "Anime Sweet Angel" stamp set from Stampers Delights for this particular project.  I decided on a sympathy card using both sentiments and all the whole stamp set. 



Below you will find the step-by-step video tutorial below.

How To Make A Window Card

 


Hi Everyone!  Monica here and today I have a wonderful video tutorial showing you all how to make a window card.  




I was inspired by the shaker snow globe projects I had seen this month and wanted to make a spin on that idea.  I decided that making a simulated shaker by having a window card and heat embossing was the next best thing.


For this project I am using the "Chibi Angel Globe" from the this month's release.  This is such an adorable image that can be used for Christmas, Thinking Of You or Baby Showers.  This stamp is very versatile in that it can be mixed and matched with other sets.


I have put together a video tutorial to take you through the step-by-step process of making this interactive card.
