Butterflies and Kitties Photo Brag Book

Hello, hello. Samantha here to share my latest project with you; a super cute brag book featuring some of the beautiful butterflies from the Dandelion Wishes with Butterflies Art Rubber Stamp Sheet by Terri Sproul. I love having physical photos and what better way to share them than with a fun and unique brag book?



To create this project I created my brag book and pocket folder. I stamped the butterflies all over the pocket folder.



Then I stamped the butterflies onto white cardstock, fussy cut them out, and used them to decorate the photos of my cats in my brag book.





Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my project. I hope you like it. Make sure you head over to the Blank Page Muse Facebook Fan Group for Fan Art Friday!

Until next time,
Samantha

Halloween Trifold Shutter Card

Hello!  Susie on the blog today and I love interactive cards!

My favorite one to make is called a Trifold Shutter Card.  I love it because of all the different surfaces you have to decorate! Added bonus - the recipient can also use it as a bit of home decor because it is free-standing when opened up!  Today I am going to share a quick tutorial for making the card base and show you the Halloween card I made for my mother!

Time to play...


Supplies:
Halloween Takes Flight Stamp Set
Halloween Bingo Stamp Set
Black and white cardstock
Patterned paper
Archival Ink - black
Stamping platform
Scoreboard
Craft knife, ruler
Inks

Directions
Position 5.5" x 12" piece of black  cardstock in scoreboard.
Score at 2", 4", 8" and 10".



Using a craft knife and a ruler, cut a slit between the 2" and 10" score lines 1.5" in from the top and bottom edges.


Fold card as shown, alternating peak and valley folds.  Note: the center section of the card fold in the opposite direction of the top and bottom sections. 



Decorate panels with a mix of stamped images and patterned paper.





The black cardstock panel added onto the front of the card measures 4.25" x 3".
The size and shape of this panel can vary depending upon the size of the stamped image being used.





I have used this card base to create cards for holidays, graduations, anniversaries, weddings and new babies!  Blank Page Muse has stamps that will help you make the perfect card for any occasion!

PMS

Hello, hello! Samantha here with a quick and easy project for you. One of the things I love to make are snarky cards and that is why this PMS stamp was right up my alley.



Let's get started. For this card you will need:



Using your sticky embossing ink pad stamp the Dandelion Bursts stamp onto your white cardstock and heat set with gold embossing powder. Mask along the border using your low tack tape.


Using your blue inks do some basic ink blending on your panel.




Remove the low tack tape. Trim your cardstock so that a .25" border will exist all along the stamping. Finished size will be 3.75" x 5.25". Adhere to your card base.


Using a shade of blue ink stamp the PMS stamp onto white cardstock. Cut into a sentiment strip and glue to the bottom of your card.





Pretty easy, right? I absolutely love this card and I hope it will inspire you. Make sure you head on over to the shop to check out all the great snarky stamps that Blank Page Muse has to offer. How many can you find?

Until next time,
Samantha

Halloween Accordion Book


Hello everyone!! Kelly here today with an accordion book. Are you ready to get your Halloween on? I love Halloween, the ghosts, the goblins, the scary things that go bump in the night, are some of my favorite things! 

To show my love for Halloween, I created an accordion book using lots of Blank Page Muse stamps. 



Blank Page Muse stamps used for this project are - 


Other supplies - 
Printed card stock
Dylusion Spray Inks
Colored pencils
Washi tape
Stickers

The process for creating this accordion book is simple. Cardstock measured 3" tall by 12" long, fold in the center then fold each side back to get the same size pages. Spray the ink onto the printed cardstock in several Halloween colors, let dry. Stamp, color and fussy cut the images out of drawing paper, set aside. 









While the cardstock is drying, look over your images and start to lay them out in vignettes to see how you want the "story" to look. Because the printed cardstock was dark on one side and light on the other, the spray inks make both sides look different. 

Start gluing your images in place on the pages, then to add a few more pages, use washi tape to tape them together. Remember to use some glue stick or another adhesive under the washi tape to hold it all together.
