Easel Card

I have seen a lot of Easel Cards online lately and decided to make my own.  There are all kinds of different styles to do this.  The card I made is a called a Center Easel Card.  I used one of the Single Stamps that we are now able to buy from Stampin Up.  This is a new stamp that is not in any catalog.  It is called Bold Snowflake and comes in clear mount only.  I also used the set of Framelits called Window Frames Collection from the Holiday Mini.  The Designer Series Paper is called Be of Good Cheer.  I love the colors in this paper.  The “thanks” stamp is from Pretty Postage and was punched out using the 1″Square Punch and the Postage Stamp Punch.

I actually made this card months ago and never sent it or used it for my Club.  I got the idea from the Triple Layer Cards that are very popular right now.  I used the stamp set called Summer Silhouettes and the colors are Marina Mist, Night of navy and Gumball Green.  The For You stamp is from the set called Itty Bitty Banners and was cut out using the set of Framelits called Bitty Banners.

Convert Your Wheels to Stamps

I love Stampin Up Wheels.  Some of them have great  designs and can be used as a border on your card or scrapbook page but I don’t like to “Wheel”.  It always makes such a mess and sometimes you miss parts of it with the ink  or you wheel crooked and it ruins your entire project.  This is how my wheel lines come out sometimes:

 

Therefore, I decided to convert my Wheels to Clear Mounted Stamps.  All you need is a sharp knife and Stampin Up’s Clear Mount Cling Foam.

The first thing you do it find the seam where the two pieces of rubber meet and cut that seam with an X-Acto Knife.

Cut your wheel at the seam

Then you pull up one corner of the rubber and peel it off the plastic wheel.

Lift up the corner and peel off.

Then just pull the rubber off the plastic wheel.  It comes off very easily.

Pull the rubber off the wheel

After you pull the rubber off the wheel there might be some old glue left on it.  Sometimes this glue will stick to the plastic part but sometimes it stays on the wheel.  It peels off very easily.

Peel off the old glue

Now just peel back the side of the Clear Mount Cling Foam that has the glue (the other side is not sticky and is used to adhere the stamp to a clear block).  Place the rubber on the Clear Mount Foam and cut around it.

Cut around the rubber on the Foam

Now you are done!  You now have a Clear Mount Rubber Stamp instead of a wheel.

The best part is they fit inside one of the Clear Mount Stamp Cases.

Third Card in Our Stamp-A-Stack

The third card we made uses Betsy’s Blossoms Stamp Set and the matching wheel called Betsy’s Blooms.  The greeting was from Petite Pairs.  The colors were Sahara Sand, Midnight Muse and Gumball Green.  I like the way the Gumball Green pops out.

Stamp-A-Stack Continued

Another card we made used the stamp set called Field Flowers.  I love this stamp set because it is a two step set.  You stamp the stems and the flowers separately.  It reminds me of visiting my Grandparents in Vermont.  The had 100’s of acres of land surrounding their house filled with flowers that looked like these.  This card is one of those you can make in a couple of minutes when you are in a hurry.  Very easy!  We used Soft Suede and Cajun Craze.
