A Festive Phrases Valentine , Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers!

I made these fun Valentine’s Day cards with the Festive Phrases stamp set, that will soon be disappearing from the 2017 Holiday Catalog! Stampin’ Up! created several sets this year that included a Valentine or Love image with the other holiday images. I think it was a super idea, since it gives more value to your stamp sets and makes them useable for longer as well.

I dreamed up this card idea, because I love doing a chalkboard style card, and this certainly turned out so so cute!

If this isn’t in your stash, you only have a bit of time left to get your hands on it 🙂

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Christmas blog hop, Stampin’ Up! November









Hi Stampers!

Welcome to our Stamp It Group CHRISTMAS Blog Hop!!

I hope you will come away with so much inspiration and so many ideas, you forget to do your chores today 🙂

The project I designed today is actually one I just recently pulled out and decided I would redo it again, but until late yesterday , I had no idea I would use it for this blog hop.

It is so simple, fun and easy to create I figured it would be a huge hit to make for so many people in out lives. Especially at this giving time of year, when little things mean so much more than we know.

These would be super gift to give to your kids teachers, your daycare people, mom friends at school…..the list could go on and on. Lots of people might really want to give a little thank you note but not have the time or energy to get or make one, so you could save the day by gifting them this little box of goodies.

Its a simple design, you need a fun 8 1/2″ by 11″ piece of card stock. I would suggest using Thick Whisper White or Thick Very Vanilla as they are quite sturdy and will score and hold shape so well.

Then you can decorate with your choice of Designer Series Paper, or even some thinlits or edgelits as I have shown in the many examples.

You can also make the cards as simple or intricate as you’d like. You can decorate the fronts with 2 3/4″ square pieces of DSP, strips of Washi Tape, a Sentiment punched out and layered on another larger Punch, and so many more.

I hope you’ll give them a try and don’t be like me, give them out and share with someone you love and appreciate this holiday season!

Make sure to leave a comment along with #stampitcontest to be entered to win!

 

Measurements:

On the 8 1/2″ side, score at 1″ on each end

On the 11″ side, score at 1″ and 4″ on each side, you will end up with a 1″ score in the center if you do it correctly.

DSP Layers:

For the top of the box, you will need a piece of DSP measuring 3 7/8″ by 6 3/8″, two of each measuring 3/8″ by 6 3/8″ and 3/8″ by 3 7/8″ for the long front layers and two side layers.

The rest is up to you.

You could stamp a sentiment on Whisper White and punch it out with the 2″ Circle Punch, then punch a Starburst circle with Copper, Silver or Gold Foil paper. Make sure you give it some flair by tying a length of ribbon to hold it closed and add a small bow. Make it just loose enough that they can slide it off and back on and add some sparkle with the Silver Sequin trim.

Make it more rustic by adding Burlap Ribbon, a bow made of Copper Trim and then finish it by wrapping a Boxwood Wreath around the bows.

They may not even want to open it……but they will 🙂

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Spotlight Stamping Technique with a Partial Die Cut for Christmas, Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers! This is a new to me technique, and I am calling git Spotlight Stamping with or without Partial Diecutting, which means you cut about half of the image and leave the rest connected. It will give you a whole new way to use your thinlits, framelits and even edgelits!

I saw this technique on a video by a woman I truly admire for her extremely creative abilities, her name is Jennifer McGuire. She does absolutely incredible creations.

The idea with this technique, is that you can achieve it with just stamps or add dies to cut out part of your image and then it will give your card a fun feel because  of the unique angles your card stock is cut to, PLUS you can virtually guarantee each card will be unique depending on where you cut .

I hope you’ll give this a try and let me know what creations you come up with as well!

 

I used the Night in Bethlehem bundle and the Eastern Palace bundle for these two beauties, what will you create today?

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

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!

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!!

Thoughtful Bundle Halloween treat bag, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stampers!
Here are the scoring measurements for that cute little treat bag! Best part is you can get two bags out of one 12 X 12 sheet of card stock or DSP. It was super simple, and again credit where it is due to Elaine from Papercraft Button over in the UK for her great treat bag idea!


You will need a sheet of 12 X 12, and you will cut it in half so it measures 6″ by 12″.

On the 12″ or  landscape side you will score it all the way across at 5/8″ turn the paper 90′ and now all the scores are on the portrait or 6″ side, you will score at :

2″, 2 6/8″, 3 1/2″, 7 6/8″, 8 1/2″ and 9 2/8″.

Fold along the score line on the bottom, and score like a mountain and valley fold on both sides where there are three score lines. This will make much more sense if you watch or have seen the video, which is below.

 

This treat bag is so fun for any holiday or Occasion!

Only a few short days until the 2016 Holiday catalog goes live, I can’t wait to see what you’re going to get 🙂

Until next time….. Stay Crafty!!

Bundles, Framelits, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Stampin' Up

Foxy bundle, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampin’ friends! Happy Friday to you all 🙂 This is a super fun and easy card to make, plus you can always swap out the squirrel to the critter of your choice 😉 The A Little Foxy DSP stack is just so fun and cheery, you could also use most any of the patterns. Another thought I had is to keep the Calypso coral scalloped oval vertical, and lay the Whisper White oval horizontal to give a crazy fun feel to the card. I really love the little wreath you can make along with it too.

I am going to start doing some cards with the Fall, Halloween and Back to school styles from the NEW 2016 Holiday catalog very soon, so stay tuned!!

Until next time, Stay Crafty!!
