Story Card Sunday: Us Label

Hi, Technique Tuesday fans!

It's time for another installment in our Story Card Sunday series.

Please meet today's Story Card.

SCS_60_UsLabel

Like many of the Story Cards we feature, this one is pocket page-friendly. It would also look swell on a traditional scrapbook page or greeting card.

Let me show you how you can make one like it.

Start by die-cutting two base cards with the Story Card DIY Steel Dies. Cut one frame with the Classic Label Card steel dies. You'll also want to cut one label and one word.

Scs_60_1

Adhere the frame to one base card and then mount them to other base card like so.

Scs_60_2

Trim the excess. Adhere the label and word on top of the card.

Scs_60_3

Pop a hole above and below the word. Bring twine or floss through the holes. (Depending on how thick your twine is, you may need to use something bigger than a pin to pop your holes through the Story Card.)

Scs_60_5

Tie a knot or bow in the front of the card with the twine. Trim the excess!

I'll be back again next week with another Story Card. Hope to see you then.

Story Card Sunday: Giving Thanks

Hello all!

Sunday means it is a time for another installment in our Story Card Sunday series. Today's Story Card has a thankful twist to it. 

Scs_59_FallLeaves

Let me show you how to make one like it! 

Start by cutting two base cards with the Story Card DIY Steel Dies. One should be cut from paper. A second should be cut from a non-traditional material like cork.

Scs_59_1

Let's now do some stamping.

Take a couple of the leaves from the Falling Leaves stamp set. Flip them so the backside is facing up on your stamping block. Ink them up and stamp them all over the paper Story Card. 

Scs_59_2

Don't worry if the inking isn't perfect. That will just add to the charm of this Story Card.

Clean the stamps and now flip them over so the right side is facing up. Ink them with black ink and stamp slightly over the shadows.

Scs_59_3

Adhere the card at an angle like so to the cork card.

Scs_59_4

Trim the excess. Stamp a sentiment onto the Story Card.

Scs_59_5

And there you have it! 

If you decide you want a little extra pop, consider adding some gems or a brad next to the sentiment.

I'll be back again next week with another Story Card. Hope to see you then!

This Is with Laura

Pocket page memory keeper in need of some inspiration?

Laura O'Donnell has you covered. Check out this page she made about her family's October happenings.

TTmksnovember

I sure love the "So You" card she created. She die-cut a tag with the This Tag - Fresh Cut Studio steel dies and then used the This Is - Memory Keepers Studio stamp set to stamp a few extra words and hearts. She adhered the tag horizontally to a journaling card and then sliced off some of the tag. Looks so great!

TTmksnovember2

And check out that "The Story" journaling card. She stamped the title for the card with This Is stamp set

Nice job, Laura!

Some Joyful Tags by Tobi

Hi all!

Started thinking about how you are going to wrap your holiday packages yet? Check out this fun tag Tobi Crawford made that would look great on a gift!

IMG_2987

Tobi cut the base of the tag with the This Tag - Fresh Cut Studio steel dies. She created the folded banner with the Folding Banners - Fresh Cut Studio dies. The words she used are from the Trendy Trees stamp set.

I just love the vintage feel of Tobi's tag! The colors are so soft and soothing. 

And guess what? She made a second tag. It's a lot like the first one, but she used a different wood veneer shape on top. 

IMG_2988

So fun!

Thanks for sharing these great tags, Tobi!
