For today's project, I had a lot of fun transforming a 3D die to make a flat card front.  Look at the totes and purses which can be made with this die set.  Aren't they adorable?

 

 

#151665 All Dressed Up Dies

 

 

To create a 3D project, it takes 2 die cuts with the tote die - so easy!  I wanted to make a flat purse, so I modified the cut for a card front.  It was quite simple.  Here are the steps.

 

 

First, die cut the shape from any designer paper or cardstock.  I shortened my bag, so I only cut a portion of the main section.

 

 

Making a bag 1-2

 

 

Next, trim the side edge along the score line made by the die.

 

 

Making a bag 2-2

 

 

Then, line up the bottom edge of the designer paper with the bottom edge of the die, and run it through your die cutting machine again.  This adds the stitched line and a score line.

 

 

 

Making a bag 3-2

 

 

Finally, trim along the bottom on the score line.

 

 

Making a bag 4-2

 

 

Once, you place it on your card front, adhere the handle to finish the purse.

 

 

This designer gem was dressed up using the Timeless Tropical stamp set and coordinating In the Tropics dies from the 2020 January - June Mini catalog.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

 

 

Everyone needs a polka dot purse, made with the All Dressed Up dies!

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" Old Olive card base, scored at 4 1/4"
  • Cut a Lovely Lipstick cardstock layer 3 5/8" x 4 5/8"
  • Cut a Flirty Flamingo cardstock layer 3 1/2" x 4 1/2"
  • Die cut the largest scalloped stitched rectangle from the Stitched So Sweetly dies in Whisper White cardstock
  • Die cut the sentiment piece using the Stitched So Sweetly dies from Whisper White cardstock

 

Adhere the scalloped rectangle on the Flirty Flaming layer, than the Lovely Lipstick Layer.  Adhere to card front with dimensionals.  Adhere purse to card front.  Add strap using dimensionals.  Trim pointed ends if desired.  Stamp a flower in Lovely Lipstick ink on Flirty Flamingo cardstock, and a large leaf in Pear Pizzazz ink on Granny Apple Green and Old Olive cardstock.  Die cut the flower, 2 large stamped leaves, than die cut 2 small leaves from Granny Apple Green cardstock.  Assemble floral cluster and adhere to purse with dimensionals.  Embellish purse handles and floral center with From My Heart Faceted Gems.  Stamp sentiment in Lovely Lipstick ink and adhere to card front.  Tie a double bow with Whisper White Baker's Twine and adhere to floral cluster.

Timeless Tropical Pineapple meets Vellum plus Blog Candy!

 

Vellum pineapple card-2

 

Hello, and welcome back!

 

I'm happy you came to visit today so I can share this fun and adorable card with you.  I love the simple monochromatic look.  The embellishments step it up, and those sequins.......WOW!  

 

 

I will be sending these to my team members who are celebrating birthdays this month, and a thank you version to my customers who have recently purchased from me.

 

 

This project uses the Timeless Tropical bundle and Tropical Oasis designer paper which are from the Timeless Tropical product suite in the 2020 January-June mini catalog.  I have loved working with this suite of products, and for those of you who joined in on the fun with us in California for the Spring Luau Retreat, you know what I'm talking about!

 

 

#153811 Timeless Tropical Bundle

 

 

#1561252 Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper

 

 

The entire Timeless Tropical product suite is packed with amazing products!  Including one of my favorite embossing folders, and beautiful Memory & More cards, which I will feature on upcoming projects.

 

 

 

 

The color combination on this project is a monochromatic palette of Pool party and Bermuda Bay.  The Iridescent Sequins pull the blue and green hues together so beautifully.

I don't think these sequins get enough press.....but they are gorgeous!  And go with tons of colors, which change depending on what they are paired with.

 

 

#144212 Iridescent Sequin Assortment

 

 

Are you able to pick out the sequin colors on today's project?  There are many colors in the pack, which come in 3 different sizes.  A pack will last a while.  

 

Stampin' Tip:  I find the Fine Tip Glue Pen and Take Your Pick Tool essentials when working with small embellishments, like sequins and rhinestones.  They make handling and adhering them a snap, and so easy to get perfect placement. 

 

 

#138309 Fine Tip Glue Pen

 

 

#144107 Take Your Pick Tool

 

 

To create this card:

  • Cut a Pool Party card base 4 1/4" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" and fold
  • Cut a Bermuda Bay cardstock layer 4" x 4"
  • Cut a designer paper layer 3 3/4" x 3 3/4"
  • Cut a 2 3/8" x 1" strip of Pool Party cardstock for sentiment
  • Die cut a pineapple and pineapple crown from Vellum cardstock

Adhere Bermuda Bay then designer paper layer to card front.  Adhere vellum pineapple and crown to card front using multipurpose glue.  Stamp sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink on Pool Party cardstock, trim banner end, and adhere to card with dimensionals.  Tie a bow with striped Bermuda Bay ribbon and adhere to pineapple with a glue dot.  Embellish as desired with iridescent sequins using a Fine Tip Glue pen.  Stamp sentiment on the inside in Bermuda Bay ink.
