Stamp It Group Father’s Day blog hop, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! What do you think of this new stamp set? Isn’t is so darn cute? I thought it would make a fun alternative to standard  Father’s Day cards! This is a new host stamp set that will be available in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. You can get this or any of the hostess sets by having a party, or placing a qualifying order in my online store. I can provide more details if you would like, just send me a note at Rachthestamper@gmail.com .

I used several different ink colors and a blender pen to color in the birds. I gave one a much more “DAD” colored feel, and the other I made a daughter 🙂 You can change out any of the colors, you could also use the watercolor pencils instead and go over with the blender pens to smooth out the color. You could also use Stampin’ Write markers to fill it in too!

I added a “nest” I made from the 5/8″ Burlap Ribbon. I snipped out the threads that connect them, loosened them up and the adhered them with TomBow liquid glue so I was able to place it just where I wanted it. I then added some of the Kraft Rope Trim to give it a bottom. The rope trim is in the Clearance Rack by the way and it is REALLY on sale! So…..ya might wanna hurry 😀

I filled in the leaves on the branches with two different colors of marker: I used Pear Pizzazz and Soft Sky, and I think they turned out so pretty!

I will try to get a little mini video done for how I made the NEST and masked the birds to add the branches behind them very soon!

Hope you enjoyed this out of the box style card, please let me know what you think!

Always an Adventure, Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers! I will sure miss this fun set, it has so many elements, and I made an amazing nighttime version when it first came out:( I am so glad I got it as a bundle though, so I will always have and be able to use it….it is still available, so you better get to my online store pronto!

I did this as a faux split/layer card which made it extra fun for me! This is also another one of my “Make your own DSP” cards. They are the BEST in my opinion, since they are easy to create just what Y O U want!!

Hope you will give a look at this set before it is long gone!

Until next time, Stay Crafty!

Bye Bye Birthday Fiesta, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! Another of my favorite sets will be retiring very soon, so if you haven’t gotten your hands on it yet, time is tick, tick , ticking away!

This card I wanted to show you an out of the box color combo that maybe you hadn’t thought  of using. It is certainly more girly, but goes to show you can change almost any stamp set around to fit your needs!

I made this card as a gate fold, which means I took a 4 1/4″ by 11″ piece of card stock, and scored it at 2 3/4″ on end of the 11″ side. Doing it this way will ensure a better and more even gate fold. Side note, you might need to trim just a hare from each it to make sure it doesn’t overlap, but that is personal preference.

I then stamped all the images onto two 2 5/8″ by 4″ pieces of Whisper White to layer onto the front of the card. I added a sentiment to the inside and layered onto a piece of Perfect Plum. And finally stamped and cut out a cactus and the sentiment, layered them onto a piece of Perfect Plum, and trimmed to fit .

Until next time……Stay Crafty!!
