Multi-Layered, Double Powder Heat Embossing w Sale A Bration Thinlits, Stampin ‘ Up!

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,

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

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,

Stay Crafty

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

Christmas Boxes, Mini treat box, Stampin’ Up!





For the CHRISTMAS BOX you will need one piece of card stock and a Designer Series Paper piece

LID Cardstock to measure 7 1/4″ by 8 1/4″

on the 8 1/4 side, score at 1 /2″, 2 6/8″, 5 12/”, 7 6/8″

on the 7 1/4″ side, score at 2 1/4″, 5″, 7 2/8″

BOTTOM Cardstock to measure 8 1/8″ by 6 7/8″

on the 6 7/8″ side, score at 2 1/8″, 4 6/8″

Someone also suggested to punch out with a 1/2″ Circle Punch on the lid to make it easier to lift the lid from the bottom of the box, that is a great idea, as suction will hold it closed a bit. Just be sure you punch on the side that DOES NOT have the flaps holding the box together.

I will do this and add a pic as well.

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

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.
