Stippled Blossoms Divider Screen Card

I got a lot of projects done at the Crop for the Cure this past weekend and I wanted to share one more with you today.  I have been seeing the Divider Screen cards all over Pinterest and other blogs, so I thought I try one out myself.  I looked over the minimal stamp sets I had brought with me to the crop and thought that an old favourite, Stippled Blossoms had just the right look for a divider screen.

It turned out to be a lot of fun and quite easy to do.  My only problem was that I left my Stamp-a-ma-jig at home and had to estimate the placement of the overlay stamp.  I didn't do too badly, but it highlights a problem I have whenever I try to go stamp anywhere else but my Craft Cave.  I can't physically take everything with me.  It is always a challenging time of making do, especially when I know I have exactly what I need at home, but it's always too far to go back for.  I think it would be great to have a craft room on wheels, so I could just hitch it up to my vehicle and pull it to wherever I'm going.  I wouldn't have to think about packing up, I would have it all there anyway!

Apparently, I am one of the few to have thought of this idea.  I searched Google for a while and this is all I could find.  Someone bought a vintage trailer and set it up as a travelling craft room.  How great is that?  Have you ever dreamed about this?

Let's have a closer look at the screen divider:

  • I started out with a piece of Strawberry Slush. cut at 6" x 11".  I scored it at 2 3/4", 5 1/2" and 8 1/4" on the long side.  Then I folded it accordion style.
  • I used the Decorative Label punch to create the legs and fancy cut out shape for the bottom.  I inserted the paper for each panel only about 1/3 of the way up the punch before punching it.
  • The decorative top edge was achieved using the Scallop Edge Border punch and the new Hearts Border punch.  They don't exactly coordinate however so you get an uneven pattern, but it looks interesting.
  • The cardstock on each panel is cut 4 3/4" x 2 1/2" for the Pear Pizzazz and 4 1/2" x 2 1/4" for the Whisper White.
  • The leaves were stamped in Pear Pizzazz.  The solid flower image was stamped in Blushing Bride, while the stippled overlay image was stamped in Strawberry Slush. To be precise, use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to exactly position the stippled overlay.
That's really all there is to this divider screen business.  It was fun designing it and I think you should give it a try!
