2016 End of Year Sale & Clearance, Blog Hop, Christmas, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, New Years Eve, Retiring Products 2016, Stampin' Up

New Years Eve Blog hop, Stampin’ Up!

 

Hey Stampers! It’s hard to believe it is time to get started on New Years Eve planning. This card was so fun to make, and I think it will be SO well received ! It is so fun, and makes you want to POP some bubbly…..even if it’s sparkling cider 😉

This was so fun in fact, that I made three alternate versions! I also thought of this card as soon as the holiday catalog dropped into my hands. My first version was with the Fancy Frost sequins, but I was a little worried, they may sell out before this blog went live, so I thought of two other versions you could create instead. Or really in addition to, since some people don’t like making the same card over and over.

Also, as you all know , I send cards to all of my little friends for EVERY HOLIDAY, and I thought this would be a fun card to send to the parents instead. Especially since you will be getting a lot of holiday bills…..:-p and no one likes that. So more fun snail mail it is!!

The video below will much better explain how I got the partial cut on the champagne glass, plus give you the skinny on the three versions, so you can choose which to make!

I know it looks fancy, but I promise you it was quite simple and you will be so happy you tried it!

 

Until next time……Stay Crafty!

Little Boxes Step by Step, Stampin’ Up!

 

 

I reloaded the Valentine’s version onto this , so you could follow along with both if you liked!

Step by Step Instructions below!


12″ by 12″ piece of DSP

Trimmed to 8″ by8″

Keep a 3″ by 3″ piece of the DSP and cut a 2 3/4″ by 2 3/4″ square of Very Vanilla

Score the Very Vanilla piece at 3/4″ on each side, fold, snip at corners add glue dots and form inside of lid.

Add snail to DSP piece add sentiment piece cut from 2″ circle punch , layered onto a 2 1/2″ circle layer of Cherry Cobbler


Fold 8″ by 8″ piece in half, fold in half again in the other direction.


Fold corner to corner and brandish folds with bone folder. You will also want to fold corner to  corner  the opposite way to get an easier fold.

(Ps the DSP side you want to show should be facing up or out so you can see it)


Fold the corners in to form a square then turn so the opening faces you


Fold edge in and back to form a crease line to follow then fold the bottom of the left and right in to meet the crease

Fill over and repeat. When you’re done it should be the shape of a kite( see below)

Put your finger in the newly created fold and press open like a “squash fold”

You want the center of the squash fold to line up with the side of the kite( in a line)


Repeat on all four sides as above


You will then fold the edge of the flaps back in the other direction

Remember it will always match on all sides, that is how Origami folds work

On all four sides so they again match….


And once more it looks like a kite


The fold all four flaps up and brandish with bone folder

All four folder up (see below)


Put your fingers into the box and gently press open

And Voila!

You can gently curl the edges of the flaps with your bone folder to encourage them to go with the curve of the box and add adhesive to all four flap undersides if your going to attach them down

Christmas, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, Retiring Products 2016, Soft Subtles, Stampin' Up

Mountain Adventure, Stampin’ Up!



Hi stampers!

Hope you are having a wonderful beginning of December. We are prepping all of our Christmas funzies over here.  Lots of card prep, gift buying and wrapping, and of course cookie and cake eating :-D. I wanted to share this increadibly beautiful card with you today. This is a set that I really don’t think caught a lot of peoples eyes in the Holiday catalog, but its really one of my very favorites. Since it isn’t necessarily a Christmas card, I think it may slip past you. But it can be used for all of those WONDERFUL JANUARY BIRTHDAY people……you know, such as MYSELF 😉 We love to get wintery cards, and this is the perfect example. It is one I think you will love as well, because the watercolor aspect of the card, makes each one unique.
There are also lots of changes you can make with all of the stamps to make them unique to your recipient.

I hope you will give this set a second glance, also since it is on the retirement list and will be gone before you know it.

 

 

It’s not too late to sign up for my Holiday Helper email list, you will get 13 project ideas for all of your Christmas gift giving needs. Just shoot me an email at Rachthestamper@gmail.com, and I will get it right out to you.

Until next time, Stay Crafty!

Classic Label Punch Wreath card, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stampers! I wanted to share a quick card you could create for many people really easily for Christmas this year. You could really use any type of punch, and the bird builder punch is super fun if you still own it! Otherwise I thought the Classic Label punch was a great substitution. It gave the wreath a completely different feel, more like a country Christmas card! It is also a great use for all the little scrap pieces you may have lying around. Plus, it give you a way to show off BOTH sides of our DSP, or DSP stacks……what is better than that?

 

I also used the Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder to lay the wreath onto, and I think it makes the card so much softer. It will feel like a warm hug to anyone who is blessed enough to be on your Christmas card list.

 

Don’t forget, Stampin’ Up! has some great specials going on right now for the end of the year. The accessories will go quickly, so get them before they are gone.
