Halloween Mini Milk cartons, Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers,

I want to send out my thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by Harvey, Irma, and the wildfires. I am thinking of and praying for you all. I cannot imagine what some people have seen and gone through in these past few weeks and I am very blessed to be safe with my family and friends.

My heart also goes out to the September 11th victims and families. It is a day I will NEVER FORGET. I pray you find peace in the memories of your loved ones. They will not be forgotten by me, and I thank them all for sacrificing what they had no choice in giving.

I have a project today that will hopefully bring a smile or smirk to your face, as we can all use a little uplifting on a day such as this.

I made these cute little mini milk cartons after watching a Facebook live that Angie Juda did this past Friday. She made an adorable triangle treat box, and I thought wouldn’t that be cool as a larger lidded project. I know I am not the first to think of this, but the way ideas come to me is usually through someones project that becomes something else in my mind.

That and for some reason as I fall asleep at night, I think about card or box ideas……probably why I am always so tired, seems my mind will not shut off.

Ok to on to the directions.

I made this box using a 6″ by 8 1/2″ piece of card stock. You could use DSP, but it may be slightly less sturdy.

Score on the 8 1/2″ long side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″

Score on the 6″ side at 1 /2″, then move to the other unscored side and score at 2″, move this new 2″ score line to 2″ and score again. This will make your box much easier to close since all the squares are not exactly equal. You will have a 2″, 2″ and about 1 1/2″ box.

Once you trim up the pieces that need trimming and need to be removed, you will again put your card stock in on the 8 1/2″ side, lining up the 1st and 3rd boxes in between the 1″ marks on the Stampin’ Trimmer. Then make a small tic mark with the score blade, your stylus or bone folder.

After doing both, you will take a ruler and score from the inside corner to the tick mark on both sides, on both boxes. ( This will all make immensely more sense if you watch the video as you go along.)

You will want to be sure to burnish all of your score lines with the bone folder, and be sure to use a really good adhesive, like Fast Fuse or Tear n Tape.

It’s all fully explained in the video in case this seems confusing.

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

XOXO Rach

Anything But the Holidays, Stampin’ Up!

 WELCOME TO YOUR NEW HOME CARD




Hello stampers! This is a super fun style hop today, and this is my first “Outside the group” hop that I have ever done. I hope you like my design, it was fun to create. I always seem to look at the catalog in a different perspective, because I like my customers, downline and fellow stampers to get the most for their money with as many varied ideas as possible for a stamp set. I know a lot of people who simply do not purchase certain types of stamp sets, like Halloween or even Valentine’s Day for example because they feel they will never use them again. So I am happy to share this cute “Welcome to your new home ” card.

I tried to set the “New Home” apart by lighting up the windows and shining a light on it! I also thought adding in Garden Green trees would give lots of depth and filing to this actually quite simple card.

I cut several types of the houses, church and so on, and then layered them some flat, and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give much more of a “town on a hill” feeling.

Of course no card is complete, in my opinion anyway, without some Wink of Stella 😉

I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts on this cool card!

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

XO Rach

Fall Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers! Are you getting ready for back to school? Have your kids already gone back? Well then this hop is going to be right up your alley! Autumn and Fall are the theme to this months hop. If you come along you can almost smell the crisp air, feel the slight chill and maybe grab your favorite sweater and beverage of choice. Hey we can dream right!?!? It’ll be here before long 🍁🍂☕️

Measurements:

Card base: Thick Very Vanilla 4 1/4″ by 11″, score at 5 1/2″

Very Vanilla Scraps: used to stamp flowers, lights, pumpkins, sign, welcome mat

I cut the door portion from the Thick Very Vanilla panel and set the door aside. I then ran the top half with the missing door through the Big Shot using the Brick Wall embossing folder.

I added Cajun Craze ink to the bricks with a Stampin’ Sponge, I then went over it again with the Smoky Slate ink and a Stampin’ Sponge. I really love how it turned out. What about you? What would you change when you make it yours?

I decided to keep the garland even though they’re holly berries because when I colored them in they look very fall-esque.  Of course the sunflowers and pumpkins fit perfectly!

I think  dimensionals give so much life to a card, so I kinda went crazy with them here.

I added all the ink into the flowers etc. using the Blender Pens because they give much better control and hues on smaller pieces in my opinion.

I used Pumpkin Pie & Tangerine Tango inks for the pumpkins, Garden Green for the stems and flowerstems.

I used Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Real Red & Smoky Slate inks for the flowers.

I used Smoky Slate and a touch of Dapper Denim for the door, and Crushed Curry for the handle.

I used Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Garden Green, So Saffron & Cajun Crake inks for the garland.

I used Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, Real Red, Soft Sky & Smoky Slate inks for the lights.

The mat is stamped in Archival Black ink onto Crumb Cake card stock.

I hope you have enjoyed this creation as much as I loved creating it!

I’d love to hear your thoughts and see your versions too:)

Brayer card & NEW Craft Room Tour, Stampin’ Up!

Well hello stampers! How do you like my updated craft room? It was certainly fun to get everyone out and all FINALLY organized! I have a place for everything now……WAIT, well that is until something new and fun comes out anyway 😉

Have you tried to create this beautiful card yet? It was so fun, and the funny thing about watercoloring or brayering, is it changes. It changes as you color, it changes as you add, and it completely changes once it is fully dry. I you haven’t tried it you should, I can almost guarantee that any card will turn out wonderfully. Especially if you give it time to dry. So if you do give this a go, and you don’t like, come back and peek at it the next morning, and I promise it will be a one of a kind beauty, just like you!

Full instructions are in the video , so be sure to give it a look, and you will also find some tips on how to smooth out your image if you are not happy with it.

Base card: Night of Navy 4 1/4″ by 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Layer: Delightful Dijon 4″by 5 1/4″

Layer:  Very Vanilla 3 3/4″ by 5″

Thanks for stopping by,

Until next time……

Stay Crafty!

Annual Catalog, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Stampin' Up

Bookcase Builder, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stampers! Here are two quick and fun cards you can create and make exactly your way with the Bookcase Builder photopolymer stamp set.

Truly the hardest part is choosing which accessories you are going to use. I did one with a Bermuda Bay card base, and the other with Wisteria Wonder. I thought they were really easy to make for any type of Baby Shower card, Announcement card, or Welcome Baby gift card!

I thought another cute way to make this card, would be to stamp all your objects in Smokey Slate, and then the one baby item in Pink Pirouette, Soft Sky, So Saffron or Wild Wasabi to show how much light, life and love a baby brings to a sometimes dull world.

I hope you like these two sweet cards and you will give them a try as well!

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

Rach

2014-2016 In Colors, 2015-2017 In Colors, 2017 Occasions catalog, Annual Catalog, Birthday cards, DSP Designer Series Paper, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Something Old & Something New, Stampin' Up

Simple Happy Birthday card, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stampers! We all need a quick card in our arsenal, and this is a great one to keep on hand. You can switch the designer series paper (DSP) out for most any occasion, and also quickly swap out sentiments as well!

I have been trying a combo of stamping with old (Stampin’ Up! annual catalog) and new( 2017 Occasions catalog) these past few weeks. It seems that we sometimes can forget the tried and true stamps, papers and embellishments when a new catalog comes out. But , some of these are true gems and are certainly underused if only by me 🙂

So on to the card, it is super easy, and as I said you can change it to your liking in so many ways.

Base Layer: 4 1/4″ by 11″ , score at 5 1/2″

DSP Layer: 4 1/4″ by. 3 1/2″

Whisper White Layer: 4″ by 3 1/4″

Use a coordinating ink color to match the card stock you chose, then stamp a leaf, bubble or other nondescript image on to the card stock. More on the sides since the DSP will block most of the card.

Stamp your sentiment in the lower left of the Whisper White panel, then add some leaves and flowers to the top right to balance it out.

Line up your DSP layer, and Whisper White layer so you know where to stamp the additional sentiment. You can also leave it off if you do not want it 🙂

Add snail to the DSP and Whisper White layers, and adhere them to the card base.

As always you can add some Stella;) Wink of Stella that is……she always makes everything sparkle in my opinion.

And, there you have it, quick, fun, totally interchangeable to suit your needs.

Until next time, Stay Crafty!
