2016-2018 In Colors, Bundles, DSP Designer Series Paper, Fall & Autumn, Framelits, Fun Paper Boxes, Halloween, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, One Sheet Wonder, Stampin' Up

Thoughtful Bundle Halloween treat bag, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stampers!
Here are the scoring measurements for that cute little treat bag! Best part is you can get two bags out of one 12 X 12 sheet of card stock or DSP. It was super simple, and again credit where it is due to Elaine from Papercraft Button over in the UK for her great treat bag idea!


You will need a sheet of 12 X 12, and you will cut it in half so it measures 6″ by 12″.

On the 12″ or  landscape side you will score it all the way across at 5/8″ turn the paper 90′ and now all the scores are on the portrait or 6″ side, you will score at :

2″, 2 6/8″, 3 1/2″, 7 6/8″, 8 1/2″ and 9 2/8″.

Fold along the score line on the bottom, and score like a mountain and valley fold on both sides where there are three score lines. This will make much more sense if you watch or have seen the video, which is below.

 

This treat bag is so fun for any holiday or Occasion!

Only a few short days until the 2016 Holiday catalog goes live, I can’t wait to see what you’re going to get 🙂

Until next time….. Stay Crafty!!

Blog Hop, Brayering, Edgelits, Fall & Autumn, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, Stampin' Up

Stamp It Group Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! Are you getting excited? Only a FEW short days until the NEW 2016 Holiday Catalog goes live for customers….September 1st to be exact 🙂 You are just not gonna believe all of the cute stamp sets, accessories, ribbon……my oh my, I could go on and on! I chose this fun set to create a Thanksgiving or Autumn themed card  to show just how versatile a lot of the different stamp sets are. I have many more great ideas for things you might not have thought of when you first saw the catalog. There will be ways to use stamp sets for completely different holidays than they were designed for too. So many ways to get a set, and stretch it to a whole new level….and Holiday 😉


This was a very simple card to make, I simply used the Sponge Brayer to create the sunset background for the card, and added layers from there. I sponged, or used the sponge daubers to give each layer another level of depth and feeling. One thing to keep in mind for the Halloween Scenes Edgelits is that you can use them as another whole layer to the card, or you can place them lower on the card stock you are cutting them from so you can layer them as I did below. You could also cut the tree out in Very Vanilla, and use sponges to add in some fall color, and almost make the bottom look like fallen leaves piled up. Another way to use the fence would be to layer it back a layer on top of one of the farther hills, add the tree in, and then add an additional fence in front. Just a few thoughts on how to change it up, of course you will love this as a Spooky Halloween tree as well 🙂

DSP Designer Series Paper, Fun Paper Boxes, Halloween, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, One Sheet Wonder, Regals Collection, Stampin' Up

OSW: Quick and Cute DSP Halloween treat holder, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! This is such a fun little treat box, you will surely want to try. You can use a 9 x 9 piece if you want to get some cards out of the DSP sheet as well, making it a One Sheet Wonder. Or you could a full 12 x 12 sheet of DSP and make a bigger treat holder. This is also very easily switched to any holiday by changing out the DSP, or making your own to suit what you need. I put fill instructions below on a sheet of paper. I marked the score lines in ink so it would be easier to see, they only indicate the scoring spots and do not need to be done in ink. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me 🙂

 

Until next time, Stay Crafty!!

 

 

 

 

Full 9×9 sheet, or you can use 12×12


3″ and 6″ score lines
Turn 90′
Score again at 3″ and 6″
All score lines shown
Score each corner from tip to inside of square corner
Closer look
Make a mark in the middle of the center square, on each opposite side
Score and fold from mark to corner on both sides
Shown close up

Edgelits, Fun Paper Boxes, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, Regals Collection, Stampin' Up

A spooky fun Halloween treat box, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! It’s getting closer to that fun time of year, when all the little ghoulies  & goblins come out looking for treats! I really LOVE Halloween, even more so now that I have a little to enjoy it with me 🙂 This box was an idea that I came up with , after thinking back on my grade school years in Catholic school. We had these boxes called Christmas Kits, maybe some of you had them too, with some really crazy and goofy stuff in them. The idea was you lugged this kit around, were able to show people samples of what was inside and then they placed and order, that you then had to deliver back to them. Honestly, it was a zany thing to do, since these things were H U G E, and being that we had more than one kid in school at a time, kind of unfair, since I am most sure we had to bring home two. I can imagine now as a parent how much of a thrill ( insert sarcasm here) it was to pull up to get your kid(s) and see these giant boxes of nonsense sitting on the curb with them. I am sure my mom was thrilled, but she never let on how much of a P I A they were 😉

So if you want to create this simple box, it’s best followed in the video below, but I will list the measurements as promised.

You’ll need a piece of 12 x 12 card stock, color of your choice.

I used Elegant Eggplant.


Trim the card stock down to about 6 1/2″.

Score along the landscape side at 1 1/2″, 5 3/4″, 7 1/4″ & 11 1/2″, turn to the portrait position, and score at 1 1/2″ & 5″. I ended up not liking the last score, so I cut it off, also you may notice I changed the last landscape score, since it was slightly off, and made my box a little off as will. I went back and fixed it. ALSO, I liked it so much, I made a Tangerine Tango version too. Pics are all below. It was really super fun to make and even more fun to decorate! You could also make this into ANY HOLIDAY you would like as well. I am definitely going to do a Christmas and maybe even Thanksgiving version.

Thanks for coming with me on this stroll down memory lane;)

Until next time…… Stay Crafty!!

Brights Collection, DSP Designer Series Paper, Framelits, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Punches, Stampin' Up

DSP overlay card, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! This is a quick and easy card , especially if you need to make a few fun cards, or maybe a gift stack of cards for a friend! You can choose any color combo, but I think it is so fun with the Brights DSP and card stock collection.

I simply chose my color and 1,2,3……I was done.

You are going to have a base of 4 1/4″ by 11″, score at 5 1/2″. Then cut two strips of DSP from the Designer Series Paper stack color you chose. They will measure 3/4″ by 5 1/2″…you may need to trim off just a tiny bit from the bottom once you adhere it. I then cut out a Scallop circle from the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper and a size smaller circle from Whisper White with the Layering Circle Framelits. So so easy! I added a pop of Pool Party paper and used the Banner Triple Punch to flag the ends. You could also add rhinestones or pearl jewels, a bit of ribbon or just some Wink of Stella.

Hope this sparks your creative juices 🙂

Until next time, Stay Crafty!

2016-2018 In Colors, Brights Collection, Neutrals Collection, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Punches, Stampin' Up

A Fun DSP and punch card, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! This quick and simple card is a cinch to bang out a bunch of.  If you’re in need of pretty but easy invites, thank you’s or any other batch of cards you may want to create. You can easily switch out the colors and give it a totally different feel too!  

Also trying a different doilie like a gold or silver one would work just as well! 

Until next time , Stay Crafty!

Brights Collection, DSP Designer Series Paper, Framelits, Fun Fold cards, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Stampin' Up

A Quick DSP card, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! This quick and easy card is a fun way to showcase both sides of your DSP. It can be used for any occasion, and is easy enough to make a bunch of different styles in advance to keep on hand. One note, if you want this card to stand, you will need to turn your circle layers 90* to the right and make it a horizontal card instead. I really love the swish of watercolor too, it makes it so fun and carefree.

Full instructions are  in the video below, it was so fun I had to make two different versions. Also a quick tip, if you mis-stamp the sentiment, as I did below, the Washi tape covers it beautifully. Would’ve only been nicer if the strip I used was not as translucent. Always try to salvage your mistakes, that’s how we learn 😀

Hope you like them both, let me know which is your favorite.

Until next time….. Stay Crafty!!

Washi covers the oopsie!

Bundles, Framelits, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Stampin' Up

Foxy bundle, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampin’ friends! Happy Friday to you all 🙂 This is a super fun and easy card to make, plus you can always swap out the squirrel to the critter of your choice 😉 The A Little Foxy DSP stack is just so fun and cheery, you could also use most any of the patterns. Another thought I had is to keep the Calypso coral scalloped oval vertical, and lay the Whisper White oval horizontal to give a crazy fun feel to the card. I really love the little wreath you can make along with it too.

I am going to start doing some cards with the Fall, Halloween and Back to school styles from the NEW 2016 Holiday catalog very soon, so stay tuned!!

Until next time, Stay Crafty!!

2016-2018 In Colors, Fun Fold cards, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Spinner cards, Stampin' Up

Backwards spinner/slider cards, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stampers! This is a really fun card to make, and since I made it backwards the first time, I redid another version to make it easier. I cannot be the only person who does things backwards from time to time 🙂 This is why it’s sometimes good to make mistakes, mostly if you learn from them!

I did use a retired stamp set for this card, just to show how many different stamp set you can make into spinner/slider cards.

Also I think the Timeless Textures stamp set really filled in great as tire tracks.

Full card measurements and details are listed below, and you can get a better idea of how to make it in the video.

 

Until next time, Stay Crafty!!

 

Card measurements

Card base is 4 1/4″ by 11″ you will score it at 5 6/8″ , then turn your card stock and score again at  5 6/8″. Basic Black piece will be cut at 4″ by 5 6/8″ to layer on the inside.

Inside layer of Whisper White will measure 4″ by 5 1/4″
