Faux Shutter Card Made Simple with the Stampin’ Up!® It’s Science Stamp Set Plus Custom DSP


There are two terrific punny stamp sets in the new catalog – they even sit side by side for easy access for those of us who can’t resist a pun! The It’s A Science stamp set features biology and chemistry puns for everyone – no expertise required. But just in case, I consulted my chemistry professor friend and I’ll share her thoughts in our video tutorial today. (The other set is Supremely Awesome, if you can’t wait to check it out.)


Either way, science expert or just happy with a pun, one of the great tricks for today’s Faux Shutter card technique is the use of custom Designer Series Paper. Custom?? Yes! By picking a basic DSP and stamping with coordinating images, it’s simple to create a DSP that matches and complements the theme of a card. The back of the Stargazing DSP provides terrific strong colors with great spots for stamping the chemistry images.

For the Faux Shutter Card layout (thank you to Nancy Legate for sharing this design inspiration via our Shoebox Swap last weekend), you’ll want 4 strips of 1/4″ cardstock, two DSP pieces (one 3×4 and one 3×4 3/4) and a base of 3 3/4″ x 5″. I promise that this card is simpler to create than it first appears.


The engineered card layout definitely fits with the geeky theme of the set! Don’t forget to stamp the inside of your card, especially since the It’s A Science set includes so many fun images. The more panels on a card, the more you can use!


Finally – I couldn’t decide if the bubbles (from the Holographic Trio Specialty Paper) were too much or just the perfect accent. They look a little like cells or lenses, so they’re kind of a cool addition. Be sure to leave a comment here or jump over to the Maker Mornings with Meg page on FB to chime in on the conversation.
