Regal in Red: Nola’s View

By: Nola J. Burkhard, Artistic Guide

Finished Card Size: 4.25" x  5.5"

Hi Stampers!  Today I have what I call a Twist and Turn Technique to share with you.  My card was pretty easy and does not take a lot of supplies. You can use scraps for the tag--I know we all have have tons of these!  As you can see from the photo below I decided to make several.  This is because I was in the midst of madly crafting cards and card fronts for swaps (share with a pal)  and to hand out at the Stampin' Up! Leadership event Jan. 18 - 21. The card base is made of Regal Rose card stock. I used Melon Mambo, Rich Razzelberry, and Regal Rose sheets from the Brights Collection by Stampin' Up!

Here is a full list of Supplies:


Creative Elements and Tiny Tags tamp Sets (Stampin' Up!)
Regal Rose (Stampin' Up!)
All:  (Stampin' Up!)
Regal Rose Cardstock,
Brights Collection pattern paper,
Daffodil Delight,
Wishper White,
Acrylic Blocks for clear stamps
Embossing Folders:  Flower Garden & Final Press (Sizzix)
Big Shot or other Die Cut machine, Cutting Pads, Multipurpose Platform (Sizzix)
Lquid Glue, Dimensionals (Stampin' Up)
Punches: Small Hole punch, Butterfly, Small Oval, Curly Label (EK Success)
Brads: Neutrals (Stampin' Up!)
Piercing Tool and Mat Pack (Stampin' Up!)


  1.  Stamp the cardstock with the large stamp that has swirls, flowers and several dots in it.  The twisting and turning technique means that every time you go to stamp you move the stamp  (twist/turn) it in your hand so that the design is in a differnt spot every time. This also makes it so that no two cards are exactly alike.
  2. Cut your pattern paper at 3 3/4 X 3 1/4 and run it through the Big Shot with one of the two embossing dies. Glue the pattern paper to the card front.
  3. Stamp the little oval with an image and words from the Tiny Tags set of stamps.   Now to get this label/tag you layer 3 different punched papers together.
  4. Here is the photo of the punches and paper shapes.
  5.  Once you have it all layered, punch a small hole in the oval and put a brad through the hole.  Attach the label/tag to the card with dimensionals to give it a 3D effect.
  6.  After you have it put it all together, grab your piercing tool and foam mat (to protect your table surface) and just pierce the areas on the cardstock where the dots of the image are stamped.
  7. And, Voila!  You're done! This card should take you about 10-15 minutes once you have all the materials out and ready to go. One other thing, I love this pattern paper--it is two sided--so you get lots of great designs to work with. Some sheets evern have words!

I hope you enjoyed my Twist and Turn card. I'd love to hear your comments on it, please post one before you go.

Thanks much and remember to ... Stamp, Create, Play . . . Everyday!
