I need to finish up getting my stamp studio ready to paint today. Jeff did paint the ceiling while I was at Stamp & Scrap University yesterday, which was awesome by the way, I will share more on that another time.
So I came home and he had painted the ceiling and part of a wall, but we have decided two coats are necessary, so after work today he will run and get more paint. So don’t tell him I took a short break to post a message…..
I will probably be off the computer a day or so while we get it all finished and the room back in order.
I will show you a couple "Di"orama cards – ha, if only I had them named after me, but they were not…but we just pretend with the name! This was actually a technique we taught at a Stamp & Scrap University years ago. I was asked to demonstrate last year at Stampin’ Up!’s annual Leadership Mangers Reception and this is the technique I demonstrated, they called them Peek-a-Boo cards.
I did step by step instructions for them at Splitcoast Stampers Diorama Tutorial and you can click on the above link to see it, you just have to scroll down to find the name, once you get there.
I was going to put the instructions on here, but figured you could see them there just as easy, but if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me.
Here is another version of the Diorama cards. They are very addicting, and with Stampin’ Up!’s punches, it takes no time at all, just look through the catalog at all the stamp sets and you will be amazed at what ideas will come to your head.
A couple tips are:
You want a stamp set with an image that will fit in the main focal window like the Give Thanks bucket (love ya Marjori) – see earlier post.
If the stamp set has small accessory pieces, like Unfrogettable, that is perfect for cutting and popping the pieces on the front to make the card even more fun for the person receiving it.
You also need to make sure you have a punch in multiple sizes. These are made with the 1 3/8" & 1 1/4" circle punches. The large and small tag punches work great too.
These do fold flat to mail, and I usually mail them in a padded envelope. Oh and with the postage going up, yet again…. make sure you have sufficient postage on the package. My Arizona Mum Marlene and I were saying just raise the postage to 50 cents and then never change it for 10 years.
Well, I better get my butt in gear, a room does not get painted all by itself. I want to get a few sayings to put on the walls when they are done too. Have you seen Uppercase Living? Wow, they have some fun sayings, and you can also get customized ones.
Have a super weekend, and thanks for stopping in.
