Hello everyone!
Thank you for patiently waiting for this tutorial as I promised to show you how to make the Easel/ Spinner card I made for ATS challenge last 12/14/10.

This card was made for my BFF's coworker who is retiring soon. She gave me the idea to do a countdown till her retirement day... isn't that clever and FUN?! Same idea with the 12 Days of X-mas countdown!

I also like to share this tutorial for Anyone for Anya and Friends which I'm very much excited to be a new DT member starting next year. The stamp image I used for this project is the adorable LAYING NORA Swiss Pixies C.C. Designs Stamp!

Here are some pictures of the finished card :)


So let's get started...
Basic supplies needed: Big Shot/ Cuttlebug machine, Spellbinder dies- large scallop, inverted scallop and basic circle, Paper trimmer, bone folder, 1/2" circle punch, a brad and glue pen.

1. Cut a 8 1/2" x 11" white cardstock paper in half  then score at 4 1/4" to make a 5 1/2"x 4 1/4" card.

2. Make a scallop card using your large scallop spellbinder die as shown and run it through your die cutting machine (big shot or cuttlebug). TIP: Make sure to overlap the scallop die a little to weld the two scallop together to make a card.

3. Score one side of the scallop in half to make an easel card, then set aside.

4. Using pattern papers of you choice cut another scallop, inverted scallop and a basic circle using your spellbinder dies as shown. Then pierce a hole in the center of the three die cut shapes place together in this order: scallop circle on the back, inverted scallop circle in the middle and the basic circle in front.

5. Punch out a small circle with the 1/2" circle punch on the basic circle die cut as shown. Then place a brad to hold them together.

6. Stamp or print out your numbers and punch it out with the 1/2" circle punch. Then temporarily glue the numbers on the inverted scallop using the punched holed circle on the front  as your guide.
NOTE: Make sure to evenly place the numbers around the inverted scallop as shown then permanently glue them on.

7. Color and cut out your image. Place dimensional as shown. NOTE: Make sure to place a dimensional on foot part of image.

8. Place your image together as shown then take your circle scallop card and apply adhesive to the lower side of the card ONLY. Then adhere front images to scallop card.


9. Then place your sentiments to the inside of your card. Place dimensionals. This will help to prop up the front side of the card as shown (easel card).
A front and back view of the card...

10. To rotate the numbers just maneuver the inverted scallop (clockwise or counterclockwise) as shown. Add some embellishments and ribbon... tah dah the card is done!!! Now it's your turn :D

So I hope you enjoy and have fun!

PK Challenge- Emboss it!

Hi everyone!

This week was so busy I lost track of  Peachy Keens Stamp TUESDAY Challenge which will be ending soon! So again, I made a last minute Christmas Card... this week's challenge was to create a card/ layout with an EMBOSSING technique.

Sorry but I was not able to incorporate my cute PK Stamps in my card but I would love to share to you my embossing technique using the Cuttlebug embossing folder!
I applied the Watermark VersaMark to the emboss side of the folder and rolled it on my Big shot then sprinkled gold embossing powder and heat set it. After which I punched a circle in the middle of the x-mas tree and used it as an ornament for the inside design of my card! Super cool and simple!!!
