Hello and welcome to a new week of creating! This week I will be featuring the Tutti-Frutti 6” x 6” Designer Series Paper Stack, incorporating products from the Tutti-Frutti Suite (which can be found on pages 28-29 in the Occasions Catalog) and/or other products to inspire and challenge your creativity!
While I love the 6” x 6” paper stack, I don’t feel I utilize them to their fullest extent and end up with a bunch of scraps. So, I set out to find the best way to cut this paper with no waste! Today’s card is a great example and I will also show you an alternative at the end, the only difference are the color’s used, so let’s get started!
When I decided on this DSP from the Tutti-Frutti DSP Paper Stack, for some reason the Sprinkles of Life stamp set and coordinating Tree Builder Punch came to mind. Now, both of these are on the retirement list and I’m sad to say that I’ve had them since they first came out in the 2015-2016 AC and it has hardly been used! I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but both sides of this DSP stack coordinate nicely when creating a card and I cut the DSP using these measurements: 2 pieces cut at ¾” x 6” and 2 pieces cut at 3” x 4 ½”:
The card base is Sweet Sugarplum cardstock cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½’ and scored at 4 ¼”:
The base layer is Rich Razzleberry cardstock cut at 4” x 5 ¼” and is embossed with the Simple Stripes TIEF (I used the debossed side for this card):
Of the cut DSP, I’m using one piece of the ¾” x 6” and one piece of the 3” x 4 ½”:
On a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock, stamp the cupcake bottom image in Sahara Sand ink and then cut out. Use the cupcake topping image to stamp on Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and ink and then do the same on a piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock and ink. The sprinkles from this stamp set are stamped on the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock in Rich Razzleberry ink and then punched out using the Tree Builder Punch:
The cupcake layers are then adhered together, the sentiment from the stamp set is stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Sweet Sugarplum ink, cut out using the smallest oval from the Layering Ovals Framelits, and the ¾” x 6” piece of DSP is punched with the Banner Triple Punch:
To put this card together, adhere the embossed Rich Razzleberry cardstock to the card base and then adhere the ¾” strip on top:
I tied a piece of Whisper White Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon (this is RETIRED) in a bow around the 3” x 4 ½” DSP (you can substitute for any coordinating color of ribbon or use any Whisper White ribbon currently available):
The cupcake and sentiment are then adhered to the DSP, I used dimensionals on the sentiment:
This piece is then adhered to the base layer:
The inside sentiment is stamped on a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut at 4” 5 ¼” in Crumb Cake, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rich Razzleberry inks:
Here is my alternative card using the other two pieces of DSP, I changed the cardstock and inks to Peekaboo Peach and Cajun Craze and used Rhinestone Basic Jewels for the sprinkles, which I colored using Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blends pen:
Here they are together, which card do you like?
