Thanksgiving blog hop: Stamp It Group, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stamping and crafting friends! Is it feeling Fall -like in your neck of the woods? We had some really crisp beautiful weather, and then like always, Summer tried to sneak back in this past week! I mean 80+’ in October…..WhAt is going on?!?!?!?! Well, I am going to revel in this incredible card and just pretend until Fall arrives 🙂

This was such a fun card to make, and the idea for the picket fence came to me in a completely different card that my friend Tami White created. It was inspired from a piano card, and when I saw the keys, I immediately thought “picket fence”! Crazy I know.

The video I created shows you in much more depth how to create the card, so feel free to power-watch it to get a better feel of the instructions!

You will start with a piece of card stock that measures 4 1/4″ by 10″.

You will first score it on the 10″ side at 5 1/2″, then turning it 90′, put the end of your card stock at the 3 1/4″ mark, and score down 1 1/2″, move your card stock down to  7 3/4″, and score up to the 1 1/2″ mark.

Turn your card stock back so it is portrait orientated along the 10″ side, and move the bottom of your card stock to 2 5/8″, and you will now use the cutting blade to cut from one 1 1/2″ score line to the other. Don’t worry if it runs over a tiny bit, it will not affect your card in any way.

You will want to reinforce the score lines with your bone folder.

Next you are going to stamp your trees on a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White. I arranged it into a scene so I could make the image look seamless once it is trimmed and attached to the card. What you will do once you finish your design is trim the Whisper White piece to  3 1/8″ by about 4″, another piece at 2 1/8″ by 4″ and finally a piece at 2 1/8″ by 2 3/8″. For the sentiment I used the third largest scalloped oval to cut the Garden Green, and the fourth and fifth largest and Val’s for the Crushed Curry and Whisper White respectively.

I created the fence posts by stamping the Hardwood background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink onto Crumb Cake card stock, then punched out the posts using the Classic Label punch.

I lined up the posts, here’s them down and then trimmer from the back. I cut a post in half lengthwise to make the support beams, again attached with Snail

This card has so many seasonal and sentiment possibilities! I hope you love it as much as I do!

Until next time, Stay Crafty!!

Happy Stampin’ Up! New Year & World Card Making Day!

Happy new year stampers!! Well Stampin’ Up! new year anyway🤗🎉🎈

Here are a few cute little treats I wanted to share with you for World Card Making day on October 1st 2016.

I did a little treat holder, a card, and gave a few ideas for the really cool take out boxes which are on the CLEARANCE RACK!!!!! They are so cheap you just need to get some, also they can hold a TON of goodies! Great if you need a quick simple treat box. 

The little treat holder measures 3″ by 31/2″ and is about 1 1/4″ deep.

To make it you will need a piece of DSP measuring 4 1/2″ by 9 1/2″.

On the long side you will score it at 3″, 4 1/2″, 7 1/2″, 9″ and 9 1/2″. the turn and score at 3 1/2″. I showed in the video what to trim and you simply fold on the score lines, add some adhesive to the 1 /2″ strip and adhesive to the bottom and seal it up 🙂

Easy peasy…..

Until next time….Stay Crafty!!
