Fringe Scissors Flower card



 Ok, I was playing today with the fringe scissors.  I have seen some pictures on pinterest and this is my take on it.  The stamp sets are retired, but mostly I wanted to show you the flower.  It does make a very thick card and probably be better to hand deliver this instead of in the mail.  I used Stampin Up! stamps Reason to Smile and Language of Friendship. The card stock is Whisper White at 3 3/4 x 5; Raspberry Ripple (retired) at 4 x 5 1/4; and the base is Pink Pirouette at 5 1/2 x 11 scored at 4 1/4.  Stampin Up has many punches and framelits to cut out images, but they did not have one for this set so I did have to fussy cut three of the small flowers.  I put them on the sentiment that I punched out with our Decorative Label punch.  This I put on dimensionals to pop it out.  I also used our new Blendabilities (Daffodil delight) for the center of the flowers including the button on the fringe flower.  I should of painted the button before I put the flower together......next time  :-)  These will be available July 1st!!

Now for how I did the fringe flower:

First.......

I cut two strips of cardstock - Raspberry Ripple at 1 1/4 x 8 1/2 and Pink Pirouette at 1 x 8 1/2.  I put sticky strip across the long side of the strip, 1/2 off the bottom and folded it to the back side.  This way it is sticky on both sides of your strip.  Use your fringe scissors and cut across.  The sticky strip backing will prevent you from cutting all the way through.






Second...........

I took off the backing on the sticky strip and I took a small clear round button and rolled the smaller strip first around the button (Pink Pirouette).  Now finish with the larger strip (Raspberry Ripple).



And


The back of your flower is still sticky so you should be able to put it on your card.  Just gently flatten it on your card.

This is your card





This flower would also look pretty on a small package or how about on a wreath for the fourth of July?  Using Red, white and blue.  That's it for today.  Have fun stampin!

Grandma and Sydni Stampin Away!

Sydni and I spent most of the day stampin.  We had so much fun we lost sense of time.  We were trying out my new blendabilities - Stampin Up's version of Copic markers.  Fun, fun, fun!


Here is a sample of both of our attempts.  It is hard for me to tell whose is whose.  I believe Sydni's is on top.  Isn't she awesome!

We started with making a Father's Day card, but I can't show that as her daddy might see it.  She did make a card for her mommy that I can show you.









And she left me with this card......


Love you too Syd  !  :-)  Life can be so sweet.
