Take the Scenic Route | Stamping Bella

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing how I made this Sliding Waterfall Card featuring one of the character stamps from A Tale of Two Rosies and the Adventure Sentiments set.
 
The card folds up to a 4.25" x 5.5" size, and is about 1/4" deep at it's thickest part.

 

 

 

Supplies:
A Tale of Two Rosies rubber stamps
Adventure Sentiments set rubber stamps
Card
Designer paper (paper used: Carta Bella Flower Garden)
Scoring board and bone folder
Scalloped rectangle die
Twine or ribbon
Adhesive and foam tape

How to:
Stamp Rosie with the camera onto white card and colour using your preferred medium. Fussy cut around the outline and set aside to work on the card. 




For the card base, cut:
4.25" x 11"
4.25" x 3-3/8" 
4.25" x 2.75" (7)
3/8" x 6.5" (2)
3/8" x 1.25" (2)

White card layers:
4" x 2.5" (2)

Paper layers:
4" x 2.5" (7)
3.75" x 2.25" (2)
4" x 5.25" 


Score the 4.25" x 11" piece of card at 2.75", 3-1/8", 3.5", 3-7/8", 4.25", 4-5/8", and 5" 


Score the 4.25" x 3-3/8" piece on the 3-3/8" side at 0.5" and 5/8"


Score both 3/8" x 6.5" pieces at 0.5" and 6" 


Fold and crease all the score lines on the card base. 


Take one of the 6.5" long strip of card and fold back the two 0.5" ends. Apply adhesive to one end, fold under, and adhere to the unscored side of the card base, flush with one edge and right up to the 5.5" centre score line. Fold the other end under and adhere, lining it up with the bottom of the card. 


Repeat on the opposite side with the second 6.5" strip of card. 


Apply adhesive to the 4" x 5.25" piece of designer paper and slip in under the sliding tracks. This piece will cover up the 0.5" sections and prevent the slider from catching on them. 


Take the 3/8" x 1.25" pieces of card and slide under the sliding track. Push to the very bottom. Fold loosely in on one side, and then the other. Adhere the ends together, ensuring no glue gets on the slider tracks. 



Apply adhesive to both sliding mechanisms, fold the top section of the card down and adhere. 


When the glue has dried, push up on the card front to ensure the mechanisms slide up and down the tracks.


Adhere six of the 4" x 2.5" paper layers to the 4.25" x 2.75" card pieces. Adhere the last paper layer to the 2.75" section at the bottom of the card front. 

Apply adhesive between the first set of score lines and adhere one of the card panels, lining it up with the 3-1/8" score line. Repeat with the remaining five layering panels, lining each one up with the next score line. 



On the last 4.25" x 2.75" piece of card, layer the 4" x 2.5" piece of white card and the 3.75" x 2.25" piece of paper. 


Apply adhesive between the last two score lines and adhere the panel flush to the top of the card front. 


Fold the score lines on the 4.25" x 3-3/8" piece of card. Apply adhesive to the inside of the 0.5" section and adhere to the bottom of back of the card. This piece will fold up and cover the waterfall. 




Layer the 4" x 2.5" piece of white card and the 3.75" x 2.25" piece of paper and adhere them to the front. 


Cut a 2.75" x 4.25" scalloped rectangle and layer on some white card and designer paper. 


Adhere Rosie on to the rectangle using foam tape. 


Wrap some twine or ribbon around the card, as shown, and tie at the bottom. 


Apply foam tape to the top half of the rectangle and adhere just to the top flap of the card, securing the twine/ribbon with the foam tape. 

Stamp the sentiment from the Adventure Sentiments set, cut into a strip using dies or a paper trimmer and adhere above the image.

You are my Sun, Moon and Stars | Stamping Bella

Hi everyone! Today I'm sharing how I made this Frame Flip Card featuring Tiny Townie Astrology Chart. This set includes all three stamps that I used on the card. 

The inspiration for this card came from one I saw on YouTube by a lady named Paula. I knew the card would be a perfect way to showcase all of the stamps in the Tiny Townie Astrology Chart set so I played around with the measurements and made my own version. The card folds up to a 5" x 7" but it would be adaptable enough to create any size.
 




Supplies:
Card
Designer paper
Scoring board and bone folder
Wet glue/double sided tape

How to:
Stamp the astrology chart onto a piece of white card measuring 3.25"(H) x 4.25"(W). Stamp the Tiny Townie image and sentiment onto a piece of white card measuring 4.5"(H) x 5.5"(W). Color the images with your preferred medium. 
 


Card base:
Cut two pieces of card measuring 5" x 11.5" and two more pieces measuring 5" x 6.5" 
Score the 5" x 6.5" pieces on the long side at 0.5" and 3". 
Score the 5" x 11.5" in pieces on the long side at 6" and 8.5" 



Frame:
Cut another piece of card, and a piece of designer paper measuring 5" x 6". With a pencil, mark in 0.75" from each edge to create a rectangle. Alternatively, score at 0.75" on the four sides as shown below. 



Using a craft knife, remove the inner rectangle on both the card and paper pieces. 


On the 5" x 11.5" pieces, fold in the 6" score line and fold back the 8.5" score line. 


On the 5" x 6.5" pieces, fold in the 3" score line and fold back the 0.5" score line. 


Adhere the 6" section of each long piece together. 


Apply adhesive to the 3" end section and adhere the 3.5" section of the smaller piece to it - lining up the outside edges. Repeat on the opposite end of the long piece with the other small piece. Ensure the fold lines meet when the font section is closed. 


There will be 0.5" difference between the front and back pieces you just stuck together. 



Adhere the paper frame to the card frame. 


Open back the two 0.5" sections and apply adhesive to them. 


Adhere the frame to the 0.5" sections only. 


Layering panels:
Card front:
2 each of - 
4.75" x 3.25" white card
4.5" x 3" patterned paper
4.75" x 2.25" white card
4.5" x 2" patterned paper

Card back:
2 each of -
4.75" x 2.75" white card
4.5" x 2.5" patterned paper
4.75" x 2.25" white card
4.5" x 2" patterned paper
1 each of - 
5.75" x 4.75" white card
5.5" x 4.5" patterned paper. 


Adhere all the panels down onto the card base. 

Back

Front 

To fold the card, push in the sides and to open it up, pull out the sides. 

Back of card when folded up. 


Front of card when folded up. 


Take the astrology card and cut it directly down the centre. 


Adhere to each side of the front panel, ensuring they meet in the middle. 


Mat the image onto white card measuring 4.75" x 5.75" and adhere to the inside back. 
Decorate the front of the card if desired. I was happy not to use any embellishments on this card.
