Latest & Greatest: Card Making with Photo Play Paper

Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is this week in Chantilly, VA on June 23rd-24th. Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with products from our Card Making workshop: Photo Play Paper‘s Summer Bucket List collection.

If you take the class, you will receive a sampler with the following products—6×6 Paper Pad, Word Strip Stickers sheet, and the Ephemera pack:


I just love the fun, bright colors in this collection—perfect for any summer-themed project!

I like to use products in unexpected ways and when I saw the fireworks and bowling ball stickers on the Word Strip Stickers sheet, I thought that layered together they would make a great flower center.


I used the plaid side of the 6 x 6″ Cotton Candy paper to cut out some flower shapes. Then I layered the die cuts and stickers together with foam adhesive to create my dimensional flower.


I added a leaves die cut and button to complete the flower, before attaching it to my card front for a fun, little “anytime” kind of card.



This Latest & Greatest: Card Making workshop featuring Photo Play Paper’s Summer Bucket List collection will be taught at our shows in Chantilly, Duluth, Kansas City, Santa Clara, Edison, and Schaumburg. We would love to see you there!

(For this card, I chose items from Bella Blvd‘s Make Your Mark collection, specifically the 6×8 Gold Foil Paper Pad, 12×12 Fundamentals Gold Foil Stickers, and Gold Foil Gift Tags that are being featured in the Latest & Greatest: Card Making workshop.)

I then used the guide to place the “Birthday” sentiment after stitching along the waves to enhance the decorative edges.


I finished by adding clusters of embellishments in the open areas above and below the waves.


It is a fun tool that I know I will be using again and again!

We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with products from our Stamping workshop: Stamplistic’s Cut and Layer Petite Stamps.

With the Starfish stamp, I created this card:

I started with the stamp, several colors of cardstock, black ink, and a stamping block.

I stamped the image several times on the different colors of cardstock.

I cut out a different shape for each layer in the color I wanted for that layer.

For the top layer, I pierced holes in the center of each circle and hand stitched sequins and beads to embellish the stamped image.

I then layered and adhered the stamped shapes together with foam adhesive.

I added the layered and embellished starfish to my card and finished it off with some wave patterned paper, ribbon, and chipboard letters for my sentiment.

 

It’s perfect for summer or anytime of year!

Latest & Greatest: Card Making with Fancy Pants Designs


Hey everyone! Roree here with today’s Make It! Monday post.

Our next show is in Orlando, FL on May 5th-6th! Stamp & Scrapbook Expo will be teaching three “Latest & Greatest” workshops at this show: Card Making, Cool Tools, and Stamping. We have lots of great products from some awesome manufacturers in these classes, and today I am going to be working with a products from our Card Making workshop: Fancy Pants DesignsJoy Parade collection.

In class, each student will receive a Joy Parade sampler pack which includes: a 6×6 Paper Pad, Design Puffy Stickers, and Tags & Labels pack.


Using those items, I created this card:


A lot of layering went into this card and the step-by-step is pretty self-explanatory. But I do want to share how I created the tab.


I started with a 1 1/2 x 3″ strip of patterned paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad and the We R Memory KeepersTab Punch Board. (This is a tool from the Latest & Greatest: Cool Tools workshop.)


I folded the paper in half and inserted it under the Side Tabs punch.


I punched one end, then I flipped the paper over punched the other end on the small tab setting.


This is such a quick and easy way to add tabs to any project!

I layered patterned papers from the 6×6 Paper Pad, two tags and two labels from the Tags & Labels pack, decorated the tab with heart sticker from the Design Puffy Stickers pack, and added ribbon, baker’s twine, and a couple of foam Thickers to finish my sentiment.


I just love this paper collection. It is so bright and fun, and it is perfect for projects celebrating any happy occasion!

This Card Making workshop featuring Fancy Pants Designs’ Joy Parade collection will also be taught at our show in Puyallup WA. We hope you can come join us at one of these shows. We would love to see you there!
