Well, after about a day and a half in bed with some major gastrointestinal distress, I am back in the real world!! And let me tell you, if I knew being down for the count for a day or two would lead to my creative genius free-flowing I would have considered this a LONG time ago (I'm mostly kidding!)
I've been wanting to play with the concept of the "split card" for a while now--I'm not sure if that is the official term for these cards--I've been seeing them here and there and thought it was time to take a crack at it! I HAD A BLAST!! I planned the projects before I got sick, but then came back and added several to my stack after my prayers to the porcelain gods! Something magical happens when your body "reboots" apparently!
So this week's Friday Quickie is Split Cards (that is my own personal term and as I love inventing new stamping terms, I am sticking with it!!!) Try not to giggle too much during the "coloring" portion of the video--I am sill working on perfecting the speed-up process! :)
Love the simple color combo in the video! Simple and easy. While I did not color in the daisy, I did put Wink of Stella on the petals, which is hard to capture in a photo!
The measurements for creating these cards are all basically the same:
- Start with a 1/2 sheet the "hotdog" way (4 1/4 x 11) and fold in half. Cut at 3"
- Cut the small piece down to 1 1/2" (so it is 1 1/2 x 4 1/4")
- Start with a 4x4" piece of printed paper. Cut it at 2 3/4" so you have a 2 3/4" x 4" piece and a 1 1/4x 4" piece These will fit on the 2 pieces of your card
- Use your diecut or shape (I used the Lots of Labels on my sample) to connect the card and bottom piece together.
This card uses the Ray of Sunshine Stamp set and Everyday Chic DSP
Floral Wings (hostess set--you can use stampin rewards to get it for free!!) Pretty Petals DSP and colors are Black Archival, Calypso Coral, Old Olive, and Blushing Bride. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits, too.
Guess what? You can flip the card and make your "split" the other way, too!!! Apple of My Eye Stamp Set with Calypso Coral, Cucumber Crush, Daffodil Delight and Black Archival Inks.
I used Glimmer Tape to cut out the candle in the silver sparkle tape! So nice that it is sticky!! Colors are Soft Sky, Night of Navy and Island Indigo.
I used the Crazy About You Bundle and Cupcake Party Stamp Set and Cupcake Builder Punch.
Then I tried cutting on the diagonal! It turned out awesome!
I used Brights DSP Stack and my Scallop Tag Topper Punch with the set, Apple of My Eye for this one! SUPER fun!! (Yup, wink of stella on the cherries!)
