Stamping with Friends Stand Alone Dies blog hop
For this Stamping with Friends blog hop we are
featuring standalone dies
I used the Picture This Dies and the Stylish Shapes Dies,
which are both standalone. I created two cards for the guys and one for the
Picture This for Guys!
The Picture This Dies and the He’s The Man Designer Series Paper makes
it easy to design a card for a guy. This card comes together very quickly and
is sure to delight any man or boy. Maybe even some ladies would like it. Using
coordinating designs, you cut out two pieces, and then insert the cutouts into
the other frame to give you two cards.
Stamp Set with greeting of your
choice. I used the sentiments from
DSP Choose two coordinating patterns 5-1/4” x 4” each
Card base 1: Crumb Cake Cardstock 5-1/2” x 8-1/4” scored
Card base 2: Cajun Craze Cardstock 4-1/4” x 11” scored at
Card 1 greeting section: Basic White 2-1/2” x 1-1/2”
Card 2 greeting section: Crumb Cake 4” x 1-1/2”
Step 1: Die-cut each piece of designer series paper
using the Picture This Dies
Step 2. Glue the piece of designer series paper with
the holes in it onto the cardstock base. Glue the rectangular shapes of one
into the openings on the opposite card.
Step 3: Stamp the sentiments using Cajun Craze
Ink Pad on the pieces of cardstock for the greeting section and die cut with
the Stylish Shapes Dies
Step 4: Pop up the greetings and the pre-cut
shapes from the designer series paper with dimensionals and glue the wrench
shape over the bottom of the Congratulations stamped piece.
Step 5: Tie the linen thread around the back of
the Congratulations die cut and tie a bow underneath on card 2. Apply the
embellishments as desired. I used the Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots to
the tires on the car.
It’s as easy as that since the pre-cut pieces and
designer series paper means only stamping the greeting.
The Picture This Dies allows
you to create peekaboo cards. Paired with the Painted Poppies Stamp Set, Poppy Moments
Dies and the beautiful Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper creates a unique
Cardstock and Paper
Ink and Colouring
Seal or Liquid Paper Glue
DSP from same sheet prepare two pieces 5-1/4” x 4” each
Card base: Poppy Parade Cardstock 5-1/2” x 8-1/4” scored
Basic White Cardstock for stamping images and greeting
Scrap of Old Olive Cardstock or another green (optional
if you choose not to have leaves)
Scrap Soft Suede Cardstock for
Step 1: Place the die with circles from the Picture This
Dies on one piece of the designer series paper and die cut.
Step 2: Lay the cut piece over the other to determine
which flower will show through. Colour with Poppy Parade
Step 3: Stamp all the flowers in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink
and colour with the Poppy Parade Stampin/ Blends. Colour leaves
and stem in Old Olive or another green of your choice.
Step 4: Die cut images that have matching dies. For the
smaller circles where using images without matching dies cut
the image using the small circle from the Stylish Shapes dies.
I also coloured one of the scraps from the dsp showing the
flowers that are on the opposite side of paper as shown on the
front. I then die cut that with the small circle as well.
Step 5: Glue the piece of designer series paper that has
not been die cut to the card base. Layer the die cut piece over
top and glue at corners or along the sides (leave the middle
portion so you can tuck your coloured and die-cut pieces in.
Step 6. Fill the holes with the die cut images. I used
dimensionals on the die cuts from the two small Stylish Shape
dies to pop those pieces up on the card. Add the die-cut leaves
where you like.
Step 7: Stamp the sentiment on the Basic White Cardstock
using Poppy Parade Ink and die cut with one of the Stylish
Step 8: Adhere the sentiment piece onto the card front
Step 9: Embellish as desired.
What do you do with those die-cut circles? As my
grandmother used to say “Waste Not, Want Not” You could make
another card. I chose to use them on the inside of the card to
brighten up and add interest inside. I cut the centre piece for the message from
the Basic White Cardstock using
You could cut a
rectangle or die-cut another shape to write your message if you don't have these dies.
Now carry on hopping to the next person and continue around to see all the amazing projects.

Christmas in July This Stamping with Friends Blog Hop theme is Christmas in July, I had to use my favourite from the new July-December 2022 mini catalogue. I grew up on a farm that was my grandparents’ homestead so anything farm related as long as it is a realistic image, I am all over it! The Christmas Barn Bundle was the first one that caught my eye and I had to have it. Then since I am a funfold gal, I worked on coming up with something to suit the set. I decided to create a tri-fold with the front two looking like barn doors. I call this the Christmas Barn Funfold It is a card showing barn doors when the card is closed, see top, opened shows a barn scene and includes a belly band to keep it closed so when you slip it off, the surprise is revealed. Here are the supplies you will need to recreate what I did.
