Sassy 25 Days of Christmas (2021) - December 3rd. Featuring Red Line Tape.

 Sassy 25 Days of Christmas - December 3rd.  Red Line Tape!

If you have never used Red Line Tape...you are so missing out! It is one of the most awesome adhesives out there!  It works fabulously on ribbons, fabrics, embellishments and even acetate!  So because of that, and being in the festive red and green season...that is my featured product of the day.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is one of my current favorite cards created with Red Line Tape.


1.  Stamp the image at the top of the White Cs leaving 1/4" from the top edge.


2.  Cut out the light bulb images that you want to be the shaker elements.  To find the most success, pierce the center of the light bulb and then cut from the underside.  Make sure to leave the outline of the stamped lightbulb visible.


3.  Cut two pieces of acetate to 3" x 3".


4.  Remove the film from one, or both, sides of the acetate.  If this is CTMH acetate, there is film on one side.  If this is Cricut acetate, there is film on both sides.  Set aside.


5.  Using Red Line Tape, adhere tape to all four sides of the acetate.


6.  Remove the red film from the Red Line Tape and then attach the acetate piece to the back of the light bulbs.  Make sure when attaching that the Red Line Tape doesn't cover the cut out lightbulbs.  Run your finger across the Red Line tape to make sure it seals to the cardstock.


7.  Using Thin Foam Tape, create a small box around each of the cut out lightbulbs leaving a little wiggle room.  Make sure the boxes connect or are up against each other so that the sequins don't "sneak out".  


8.  Next, using the same height of foam, add additional foam around the edges of the cardstock and in some of the in-between spaces so that the piece lies flat when attached to the card base.


9.  Carefully add red sequins to the one of the windows, a mixture of the red and green to another one, and green in the 3rd.


10.  CAREFULLY remove the film from the foam tape surrounding the sequin boxes.  Tip: use your hand to hold down the base while pulling the film so that the sequins don't pop up and stick to the foam.


11.  Remove the film from the 2nd piece of acetate and attach to the foam tape.


12.  Press down to the seal.


13.  Remove the film from the remaining foam tape and attach the entire piece to the card base.



And there you go!!


14.  Add title as desired.



Supplies used:  (Z3565) Holiday Loose Sequins, (Z2060) Thin Foam Tape, (Z2805) Black Ink Pad,  November Stamp of the Month, (Z5024) Red Line Tape.

The stitched rectangle frame was cut out with the Stitched Rectangle Frame Thin Cut and then added to the top of the shaker acetate with Red Line Tape.  Such fun right??

Shimmer Trim Overlay Layout

Darlings, you most certainly are marvelous!!  Love this layout!! The color combination used, the overlay, the details, and of course, the "darlings" that the layout was created for!

Truth.  I re-created, tweaked, and altered a card design that I used many moons ago (we are talking maybe 2013 when Artbooking was first introduced!) and made it into a layout design that I am now even more in love with than the initial card!

The overlay design was significantly altered, sliced, and welded in Design Space to create the look that I wanted and so that the design would stretch the length of a 12" page so you are actually seeing 4 different sections 4" x 12" in size, all created on the base pages.

The Shimmer Trim that I used in the Darlings layout is Flamingo and Papaya however, this could be tweaked to your choice of colors -- or even to highlight more than two colors - this is just the combination I really like for my photographs.  If going with my sequence, the layout will require 4 rolls of shimmer trim with a little left on each roll.


The words "Darlings" and "marvelous" are cut three times, stacked and adhered directly on top of one another for stability.  As the title is so incredibly intricate it was challenging to pop the title up with Thin Foam Tape, and stacking the layers of cardstock helped create that thickness and height so that there is more depth in the layout.  Because of the texture of the Shimmer Trim, it is important to adhere the title over the White Daisy overlay so that the title has something to adhere too.


Hand-journaling isn't typically my forte' however I decided to journal directly on the overlay itself.  Doing this didn't break the flow of the overlay yet become a complimenting component of the layout.


The Clear Shimmer Brush was used on the stamped macarons to pull in the glitter component.  These worked great for my personal layout, but could easily be switched to another embellishment for another layout.


Now that you have seen the possibilities for the layout, here is the card design that the layout originated from with updated colors.  This is indeed a 5" x 7" card and perfect for a special occasion.


-----------------------------------------------

So let's take this step-by-step on how to create the overlay portion of this layout:

For this step-by-step, Candy Apple and Clover Green Shimmer Trims were used.

1.  Begin with the overlay.  Flip this to the back side where all the attachment, and positioning, will take place.

2.  Adhere Red-Line Tape to the edges and any of the spaces that will allow for it.  Also note, extending the red line tape to the All-Purpose mat helps keep the overlay in one spot and makes it easier to add the layers accurately.


3.  When attaching the Shimmer Trim, begin with the large scallop part of the overlay.  Attach the shimmer trim face down to the overlay allowing it to stick to the red line tape.  



4.  Using fine tip scissors, cut notches - essentially triangles - at each place where the scallop "dips". This is easiest accomplished by cutting from the front glitter side.  



5.  Remove the film from the scalloped portion of the shimmer trim.  


6.  Now, adhere the next layer of the shimmer trim making sure to attach it to the back of the scalloped shimmer trim.  This will keep the pieces from moving while you are filling in the spaces.


7.  Continue until all open spaces have been covered.


8.  Pull any remaining film from the back of the shimmer trim.  Adhere entire section to the White Daisy base.

9.  Using fine tip scissors, or a paper trimmer, trim all shimmer trim edges, that exceed the base, off.


10.  Repeat with all four sections.


11.  And you are done!  Easy right?

----------------------------------------------------------

Both the layout, and the card set, are available in my shop at www.inallsassiness.com.  When ordering my kits for either the layout, or the 5" x 7" cards, you have color choices!  I can't wait to see what color combinations that you will put together!
