How to Use Our Stampin' Trimmer and Two Easy Cards - VIDEO

Hi Friends! I love finding ways to use scrap pieces of card stock and Designer Series Paper. The card that I'm sharing with you today is a perfect example of how to use up these bits and pieces. You can use any size of Designer Series Paper (or even stamped or embossed card stock) but I've included the measurements I used in my tutorial for you. For this card layout, you don't have to be precise when lining up the pieces, they look even better when they're staggered and off-centre a wee bit.

I have a new video for you that shows how I made today's cards, as well as an introduction on how to use our Stampin' Trimmer. Many of my new customers who have just discovered stamping have had questions about how to use this awesome paper cutter, how to cut cards, how to measure the card layers, and so on. So I hope this video helps!

For the above card I used:

The supplies I used on this card are listed below, with the exception of the "Layering Circles Framelits Dies". 

Whisper White: 11" x 4 1/4" (for card base); 4" x 5 1/4" (top layer); 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" (for oval die cut)
Pool Party: 3 1/4" x 3 1/4" (for oval die cut)
Vellum: scrap pieces (for butterflies)
Painted Seasons Designer Series Paper: Blue pattern 3" x 3"; Flower pattern 3" x 2"; Red pattern 2 1/2" x 1 1/2"; Succulents pattern: 1 3/4" x 2 3/4" 

  1.  Fold Whisper White card stock in half to create card base and set aside.
  2. Glue Designer Series Paper pieces onto Whisper White card stock layer.
  3. Run Pool Party Ink Pad across a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine to dye it, set aside to dry. Once dry, wrap around Whisper White card stock layer, securing in the back, and glue to card front.
  4. Rub Embossing Buddy across 2 3/4" x 2 3/4" piece of Whisper White card stock, stamp sentiment with Versamark, sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder on top. Shake off excess powder and set with heat tool. Run through the Big Shot using oval die from "Stitched Shapes Framelits". Cut Pool Party card stock with die that is the next size up. Use SNAIL to adhere the two ovals together and place on card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  5. Tie a bow the Pool Party dyed twine and place on card front with Mini Glue Dots.
  6. Cut out three small butterflies from Vellum card stock using Butterfly Duet Punch. Place on card with glue dots.
  7. Add a rhinestone to the centre of each butterfly.
