Hi Stampers!

Well, this Facebook LIVE kinda got off to a rough start, but I impressed even myself with the end result! This is  such a totally cool idea, to use two different embossing powders, and just using one powder but embossing it more than once gives an amazing result!

I hope you’ll watch this video and try it for yourself 🙂

All supplies used are listed below and some of these products will be available for purchase on January 3rd since they are in the new 2018 Occasions Catalog, so don’t fret if you cant locate certain things!

If you still need a copy of the catalog, send me your mailing address and I will send you one, Rachthestamper@gmail.com

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Mini DSP Christmas Trees, Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

Yet another quick and fun way to use up scraps! I trimmed out some triangle trees in varied sizes to make this fun design. I just used any old DSP that was in pieces on my craft table:)

I backed it with a thin strip of DSP and added a Whisper White panel to give a focal point.

Until next time,

Marker to Stamp Technique with Embossing Paste , Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

This card, either version will be simple to create in a hurry if you’re running short on Christmas cards!

I added Embossing Paste to the Pine Tree and dried it with a heat tool to make it a bit puffy.

I tinted the Embossing Paste with Powder Pink refill ink ( just a drop!!) to create some Bermuda Sand for the Beachy Tree!

Also I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the tree with the snow to give a shimmer effect 🙂

I really cannot believe we have less than a week to go!

Stay tuned for more ideas through to Christmas Eve and be sure to tune in tomorrow to Facebook to see what we make live!

I’ll see you at 930am EST on the Rachthestamper Facebook page!

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

A Fast and Fun Christmas Gift , Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

Guess what……I just finished my blog post for today! I promised to have a new one every day through Christmas Eve and I forgot. So I thought, it is close to Christmas, people may be in crunch time mode…..make a quick and easy one!

So this is what I came up with and you may have many of the easy things needed to make these, and guess what else? If you don’t ,swap it our for a stamp set you have, or you could even go the route of giving thank you cards! People NEED those too!

If you have the Pizza Boxes to add the cards below to, you could add some DSP and a simple stamped image, tie some ribbon as well if you’d like.

If you don’t , just tie it up with a pretty , festive ribbon, or layer two together as I did with these!

You could copy any of the cards shown and make the same stamp only ones, or DSP and a stamp, whatever works for your needs!

So without further delay…..

The note cards are 3″ by 6″, score at 3″, you can use Whisper White or Very Vanilla to make it easy. You can use colored card stock but you may need to add a white insert so keep it simple.

Then Stamp, use ink that is not a traditional Christmas color, know why? It is your card! And besides Christmas lights on a string are all different colors right?

I went with similar color schemes, for example:

Rich Razzleberry and Perfect Plum

Dapper Denim and Marina Mist

I think they are fun and take the stress out.

Another way is the Stampin’ Blends if you WANT to color…..if you don’t just Stamp It! 🙂

One more way is a bold sentiment with a 2 3/4″ square piece of DSP behind it! Ya know you have tons of cool DSP leftover 😉

So easy and fun and really with endless possibilities too

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)…..Even if I “Last Minute Lucy” it 😀

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Lovely as an All Occasion card, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

I recreated a lovely card I made some years ago that was inspired by my upline Tami White!

In this version I used Powder Pink and made a very soft looking card. This is also not a card that has to be Christmasy, you can make into many different occasions.

Actually that is why I did not add a sentiment so it can be open tomorrow interpretation for any of your card needs!

It was very easy and would be simple to mass produce.

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Northern Lights Lovely as a Tree, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

Don’t you just love this beauty? It was so super fun to create and I guarantee it will be a one of a kind masterpiece your friends will be so happy to receive!

This technique and color scheme was given to me by a Facebook Live viewer Breina, so we have her to thank for this  bit of awesomeness.

There are only three colors, four if you count black, but the colors Blends to make so many others it looks like a lot of white to but is really quite simple.

You’ll want to heat emboss the Trees from Lovely as a Tree in White Emboss powder onto a 4″ by 5 1/4″ layer of Whisper White. Then starting lightest to darkest you’ll add in colors with your sponge daubers.

I used Lemon Lime Twist, Tempting Turquoise and Berry Burst and then added in Archival Black ink.

You can create a mask with paper or post it notes if you want more defined edges and you can also add Black inbetween colors if you have any to keep them more concentrated in hue.

I love the way the card turned out even though I have seen a ton of these in example and I really was a bit leery when I was making it.

When you take a step back and let it dry and attach it to a base, I think you will swoon too!!

 

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Merriest Christmas Wishes , Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

This card is made oh so simple by adding some of your favorite Designer Series Paper to a card base, then making it shine with Silver Emboss powder.

I added some Real Red sponged on the edges to bring it together with the Real Red card base. The Old Olive 1/8″ Ribbon added a touch of Christmas Green and finally a pop of sparkle with the Clear Faceted Gems.

I finished the inside with a beautiful sentiment and added the Tree by coloring each part with the Stampin’ Write markers to make it look like a mini ornament.

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)

Until next time,

A Season of Scraps with Watercolor Christmas, Stampin’ Up!

Hello Stampers!

This is a fun, quick and easy card, and also a GREAT way to use up scraps!

The main layer of the card is 3 3/4″ so all the strips are about a 1/2″ by 3 3/4″. I just used whichever pieces I have laying around and I added in the Champagne Foil I had leftover trimmed up from the Wise Men card I made several days ago! I Also popped it up on dimensionals to give it some extra pop!

 

So easy and fun and really with endless possibilities too!

Quick tip, I used a Swiffer cloth to wipe off the excess Embossing Buddy powder after the White Embossing Powder dried.

 

Hope you have fun creating your version!

Stay tuned for a new idea each day up through Christmas Eve:)

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

No bones About it, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

I created this awesomely fierce birthday card, for my incredible nephew Emmett!

This was so fun to make and it’s super easy to change to any color or theme that you want since it’s a photopolymer set! You can line the bones right up, or stamp the bones first and then the bodies, OR just bones or just bodies!

Also the added footprints, foliage and rocks will make this card a hit for any of your little buddies!

The sentiments are really unique and well themed!

I’ve made this card many times before and did a really fun girly version and another using just the outlines and then I added fussy cut party hats to finish it off.




This time I embossing the greeting using Memento Black ink and Clear Embossing powder.

Another fun idea would be to make it in various shades of browns and use it like an old map, or a dirt covered relic! I’ll

Have to give those to ideas a try as well.

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Scalloped Tag Topper Treat Holders, Stampin’ Up!

 

Hi Stampers!

Today I am sharing these super simple and cute treat holders you can create for many little gifts this holiday season!

You could use any Designer Series Paper for this project, but I have to say the Christmas Around the World DSP is one of my ALL TIME FAVS! It is also great since you can use the scraps and cut out little pieces to decorate your treat holder, a two for one in my opinion.

 

I will give measurements for both of them, but if you have a larger treat, all you need to do is to make your flaps a bit longer and you can always make the base a bit wider too to accommodate any treat!

Also, be sure if you haven’t already to sign up for my Holiday Helper emails, it will give you 13 Holiday ideas of cute cards and treat holders just like these to knock out your Christmas gift list in no time! I need your email address and name sent to Rachthestamper@gmail.com.

#1 Tic Tac Holder

Start with a piece of DSP measuring 7 5/8″ by 3 1/8″, on the 7 5/8″ side, score at 3 3/8″ on each side by scoring and then rotating the card stock 90* and repeating the score. Then on the 3 1/8″ side, score at 1/2″ on each side again by scoring and then rotating 90* and scoring.

Below is  a step by step photo template

Below is  a photo template so you know what the trimmed holder should look like prior to adding Fast Fuse (FF).


#2 York Peppermint Patty Holder

Start with a piece of DSP measuring 1 15/16″ by 7″, on the 7″ side, score at 3 1/8″ on each side by turning the card stock piece around 90*, it will make a more even treat holder.

Below is  a photo template so you know what the trimmed holder should look like, then just use the Scallop Tag Topper punch at each end, and add ribbon to hold closed.
