Hi everyone! this is Ann Clemmer and Stamper
from stamperdog.com. And in just 3 minutes, we’re going to show you how to make this really
cool polka dot designer paper while we show you how to make this polka dot card. Isn’t
it cool? Now the color’s a little off. that’s Melon Mambo. But..you’re going to “get it”.
The first thing that you want to do is stamp this greeting from the Amazing Birthday set
onto a small scrap of Melon Mambo and a quarter sheet of Whisper White. I like to use Jet
Black StazOn when I using our rubber stamps. And so, we’re going to punch those out later.
Then you’re going to take a half sheet of Whisper White card stock and fold it in half.
I like to pinch it at each end and then fold it in between, but it always helps to go over
it again with a bone folder. Next, we’re going to go put the black layer on and then we’re
going to take another Melon Mambo layer and emboss it with the polka dots and put it on
with liquid glue because that’s the best way to put any texture on your card. Now we’ve
punched out those two greetings and if I’m going a little bit fast, just use this link
to go to my site and you’ll get everything in detail. Now, let’s get to that polka dot
paper because our friend Lydia showed us how to do this at the Stampin’ Up! Convention
and it was way cool. You want to make sure that your banner fits the card stock. Use
this polka dot mask that Stampin’ Up!’s just released. And we’re using the new Project
Life Journaling marker and then all I do is go and do cross hatch on each polka dot. now,
I like to make all the cross hatches go pretty much the same angle on all the polka dots.
Not exactly, but close enough. And if you don’t like the border – well, that’s what
it looks like without the border. But, I kind of liked itwith a border so I drew circles
around all of them and they look more uniform to me. Now when you put the cross hatches
on, you want to put about the same depth of color on each polka dot. Not exact, but close.
And you’ll see at the end how they compare. So here. Look at. I really just did enough
to get this Banner Framelit cut out. And if you want to make sure you don’t through your
banner framelits away. hang them on a little clip and that way they stay off of your table
and out of your garbage can. Don’t ask me how I know.Don’t ask me how I know. So here’s
a little bunny bow that we tied out of the Melon Mambo Cotton Ribbon. (I love that stuff!)
And just tie a little knot! And fidget with it until you can make sure that you have enough
to go around your banner that I’ve layered already. And then I just go and put some Stampin’
Dimensionals on the back, put it on the front of my card, and wow! Is that looking cool
or what?!? Now, I’ve punched out the greeting and I’ve put it on the front but look at how
the different cards look the same but one has a lighter set of polka dots and the other
has a darker set of polka dots, but they’re fairly uniform on each one. This is Ann Clemmer
and Stamper from stamperdog.com where we try to put a little ink, paper and FUN into your
day! Did I make it in 3 minutes, Stamper? No? Well I hope they like and share it!
