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!

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

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:)

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!!

Valentine’s blog hop, Stampin’ Up!




Hi stampers! Ok confession time…..I love chocolate, I love hearts, I LOVE love, but every year I struggle with making Valentine’s cards. I don’t exactly know why, I love giving cards, but these are the hardest for me to  create. I had a completely different card for this hop, one that  I was not exactly thrilled with, and I thought I cannot just give a ho hum card. So back to the room I went, and viola, I came up with two different cards, and a little treat box.

I hope you like them! The treat box instructions are from a prior blog post, so you can find the instructions there. The cards were both beautiful and quite easy, so I hope you’ll not be like Rach in this instance and give them a try, and maybe make your version even more beautiful.

So, I thought a framed look would work really well with the tree card, pretty enough to leave up for some time. I started with a Basic Black card stock base, then added layers of Real Red, and finally Whisper White.

I stamped the tree in Early Espresso, and did a few ink variations for the “leaves”, and added a Smoky Slate “grass” for the feeling that love makes everything better.

I used the four linked hearts from the Love Notes Framelits to add the sentiment.

Then, I really fell in love with the new Love Notes Framelits dies, so I really wanted to use them again. For that card, I went with a Thick Whisper White base, and thin strip of the Sending Love DSP stack, and the line of hearts cut from Whisper White.

I used a full 6×6 piece of DSP from the Sending Love DSP stack for the treat box, and adhered the flaps with Tombow liquid glue. It takes a bit to dry, but is well worth it on the adhesion.

Tree card:

Basic Black card stock for base 4 1/4″ by 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Real Red layer 4″ by 5 1/4″

Whisper White later 3 3/4″ by 5″

Love card:

Thick Whisper White card stock for base 4 1/4″ by 11″, scored at 5 1/2″

Whisper White layer 4″ by 5 1/4″, with hearts line on far right to the edge

Sending Love DSP stack layer 5 1/4″ by 3/4″layered under the hearts

 

Well, tell me your thoughts….Do you love Valentine’s Day? Is it your favorite, and if so why? I’ll tell you I love writing this blog, and it is better when I hear from you!

Until next time, Stay Crafty!
