"4 for Him, 4 for Her" Class Sample
Featuring the BOOTIFUL OCCASIONS & BLUE RIBBON stamp sets
from Stampin' Up!
I paired it with the BLUE RIBBON stamp set and some fun background papers... see below for full recipe of products used. (Don't you LOVE the pre-embossed Naturals Composition papers!?)
We stamped the boot in Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake cardstock, cut it out and then sponged the edges with Soft Suede ink for that real leather cowboy boot look!
It is layered onto circles and scallops... see below for sizes and paper used.
OK.. NOW.. HERE IS THE FANTASTIC TIP...
Sharon Howard figured this out in our class... this is how you can stamp this Blue Ribbon image and punch it out with the Scallop Circle punch without punching off the ribbon tails!
STEP 1: Stamp blue ribbon image and make 2 cuts with your paper snips as shown
STEP 2: Flip the 2-3/8" Scallop Circle punch upside down, and pull the "ribbons" up through the opening as shown:
STEP 3: Pull the ribbons and position so that the scallop lines up with the punch
STEP 4: Punch
STEP 5: take it out of the punch
STEP 6: Trim the ribbons by hand with your paper snips
Isn't that FANTABULOUS!!?? Thank you Sharon!
Notice in the Festival of Prints paper pack, one side looks very Christmasy and the other side has great masculine patterns... GREAT for this Cowboy card!
