Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Great Family Occasions.” While my Pansy Patch sliding lock card is a thank you card (I completely goofed with the theme this month), with a quick change of sentiment it could be a beautiful Mother’s Day card. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Have you seen the new 2021-2023 In Colors? They are YUMMY!! Which is your favorite?
My Pansy Patch sliding lock 1/4″ and 8-1/2″. The new Designer Series Paper is called Pansy Patch and will be available in the new Annual Catalog.
You will notice that the right side of the card looks like a normal card, but then there is a 2″ flap on the right side. This flap has a bit of an angle because I measured over 1″ on the top and cut down to the outside corner.
The stamp set used is called Pansy Patch. It is a triple stamping technique, photopolymer stamp. This made stamping the flower easy – I just stamped the base in Highland Heather ink, the detail in Gorgeous Grape ink and the center in Daffodil Delight ink.
I used the masking technique on the pansy, so that the leaf (inked in Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen ink) appears to be coming from behind the flower.
For the lock mechanism, I used the soon to retire Classic Label punch to create the track. The retired Word Window punch would work good for this, too. Going forward, I will have to look for a die to do this with…
The part that slides back and forth was made using the Double Oval Punch. I punched two of the scalloped oval punch in Evening Evergreen CS and one regular oval in Basic White CS.
One scalloped oval is on the inside of the card and one is on the outside of the card.
A small rectangle, cut from the Foam Adhesive Sheets, to fit into the track is in between them. You can use Stampin’ Dimensionals, but they are more of a round shape, so the ovals may twist a little. Will you be giving my Pansy Patch sliding lock card a try?
These 2″ x 5-1/2″ bookmarks were made for my customers, I am mailing them with the new Annual Catalog. Using the Delightful Tag Topper I punched on the top and put a 6″ piece of ribbon through the hole.
I stamped a sample of each of the new inks (using a stamp from the Dressed To Impress stamp set) and used the Dragonflies Punch to punch out a sample of each of the new cardstocks. (Of course, I used adhesive sheet on the backside before punching making them clean and simple to adhere). Note: I haven’t ordered it yet, but there is new ribbon (very similar in style to the one I used) in each of the five new colors! So fun!
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on May 12th when our theme is “2021-2023 New In Colors” when our Design Team creates a project with the new family of In Colors for any occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
