DIY - Stampin'Up! Paper Clips
Stampin'Up! Retiring Product List

DIY -- Easy #2

Last Tuesday we did a cute card with the Stampin'Up! Paper Clips thinlets. Today, we're doing a very cute card with the same framelits and I'll tell you a secret about the thinlets that I just discovered myself today. But first, look at our second card using the Paper Clips thinlets:

4-15-16 Paper Clips

Do you see the little faces on the clips? Today I discovered these are part of the thinlet dies--the punch holes for getting these cuts out of the thinlets are actually the "faces" you see---all you have to do is use your Stampin'Write markers and the faces are  perfect! Awesome, right?

4-15-16 clips

Also, Tuesday I mentioned these are good for attaching pics and notes to your memory keeping pages...this die set also includes 2 great mats for memory keeping--a 4 X 4 and a 2 X 2 framelets--if you don't like to cut mats---here are 2 great sizes for matting in the same set as your Paper Clips! Terrific value for your money.

I'm going to give you the directions for creating this cutie and following that are the supplies needed to re-create it.

  1. Cute a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4 on the long side (this is your card base).  Stamp Happy Birthday (Party with Cake stamp set) in Archival Basic Black ink--see sample card for placement. Use the Large Polka Dot embossing folder on the front of the card base.
  2. Cut a piece of Basic Black carstock 2 X 5 1/2; cut a piece of Daffodil Delight polka dot Designer Series Paper 1 7/8 X 5 1/2 and adhere to the black cardstock using multipurpose liquid glue.
  3. Using all 5 colors of cardstock in the 2015-2017 In Colors cardstock, cut a Paper Clip from each of the colors using each of the 5 paper clip designs using the Big Shot and the Precision Base Plate.
  4. With your Stampin'Write Basic Black marker (#100082) marker the eyes and noses through the Paper Clip dies; adhere the paper clips to the Daffodil polka dot paper using liquid glue...use your imagination or see my sample.
  5.  Adhere the black/polkadot unit to the front of the card using liquid glue.

You are finished! Isn't that the cutest--great for kids, teens, guys, the office, a good friend...endless possibilities.
