Story Card Sunday: Good Week

Hello again!

It's Story Card Sunday time! And just wait until you see this week's installment!

2_scs_50_goodweek_teriThis Story Card would work great in a pocket-style scrapbook or on a traditional scrapbook page. It would look good on a greeting card. Just change out the sentiment to fit the occasion.

So let me show you how to make a Story Card like this one with Technique Tuesday's clear stamps and steel dies.

Start by cutting a base card with the Story Card DIY Steel Dies.


Did you know you can dry emboss with steel dies? Let me show you how I did that for this Story Card with a Big Shot machine. 

Open the the machine up to platform one. Set a cutting pad and two rubber embossing mats (or Plummer's Gasket) on the platform. Set the base card on top. And then set the Nested Stars dies onto it. (The dies should be face down.) And then set a cutting pad on top. Run the whole thing through the die-cutting machine.


 The end result will be something like this.


Pretty cool, huh?

(By the way, you may use a different kind of die-cutting machine than I do so it may work different with your machine. Check with the machine's manufacturer for instructions on pulling off this technique.)

Going back to the Story Card, scribble some color with watercolor crayons (or watercolor pencils) over the stars. Spread the color with water.


I felt the color on my stars was a little light so I went in and added a little more color with a second watercolor crayon.


Finish the Story Card off by stamping a sentiment. (I used one from Technique Tuesday's Everything Pocket Page stamp set.) Add a few gems or enamel dots as well.

I'll be back again next week with another Story Card! I hope you will join the fun!

I've never done a story card before but I'm amazed how simple it is to make this so cute.Thank you for the dose of inspiration

I LOVE your WONDERFULLY colorful story card. Thanks for sharing and for the tips.

Such a great idea to get more use out of my steel dies.
