Photoframes and 3D Frames, Spring Summer Occasions Catalogue 2019, Tutorial

Butterfly Gala 3D photo frame boxed frame Project Make

Hello everyone,

A different kind of project make today – a 3D photo frame / box frame gift using the new Spring/Summer 2019 Catalogue items Botanical Butterfly DSP and Butterfly Gala Stamp Set as well as Basic Grey Co-ordinating card stock and stampin’ pad.  I think this is absolutely gorgeous and it took the minimal of effort – if you do not have a box frame you can still make this project with a normal photo frame – it will still look gorgeous!  Please do share with me if you recreate this make as I’d love to see it!

I have linked these items below should you wish to get your crafty hands on them 🙂  The links will take you straight to my Stampin’ Up! Shop Page 🙂  Please remember that you will qualify for FREE products for each £45 spent on goods 🙂

Spring Summer Occasions Catalogue 2019, Stampin' Up!, Tutorial

Shaker Card using Well Written Framelit Dies

Good evening everyone! Another late blog and this one has literally taken me a few days to do due to one thing or another – but I managed. I wasn’t 100% confident with the card although it did turn out okay in the end.

photocollage_2019127181125891.jpg

 

This tutorial uses the new Spring/Summer 2019 Catalogue Well Written Framelit Dies and Meant to Be Cling Stamp Set as well as Basic Gray Co-ordinating Cardstock and Stamp Pad. I have linked these items below should you wish to get your crafty hands on them 🙂  The links will take you straight to my Stampin’ Up! Shop Page 🙂  Please remember that you will qualify for FREE products for each £45 spent on goods 🙂

Instructions:

Card Base / insert

  1. Cut thick whisper white cardstock down to make a 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 square card and round corners using envelope punch board
  2. Cut a piece of grey cardstock down to 5 6/8 x 6 6/8″, again round corners.
  3. Die cut a love heart in centre of both the front of the card and the card layer ensuring they match up centrally.
  4. Using the next size up heart die, cut a piece of acetate and adhere to inside of card.
  5. Die cut your shaker pieces from a piece of gray cardstock.
  6. Place your die cut shaker pieces onto the middle of the acetate away from the edges.
  7. Apply double-sided tape (or glue) around the outside of the heart (on the inside of card)
  8. Cut a piece of normal whisper white cardstock big enough to “line” the inside of your card – add some wet glue to outer area of card inside and add this section making sure it is all even.

Card Front/Sentiment Layer

  1. Apply a piece of whisper white polka dot tulle ribbon to around the left side of grey card layer (see instructions above) before adhering to the card base.
  2. Die cut your foliage pieces and birdies/butterflies from whisper white basic cardstock and adhere to front of card
  3. Add a layered section for your sentiment using the triple banner punch (bottom layer 1.5″ wide, stamping layer 1″ wide)
  4. Stamp sentiment of choice onto white section and trim down so that the sentiment is central
  5. Adhere to gray layer, and again, trim down accordingly.
  6. Adhere to front of card using dimensionals.
