BOO!!! Halloween is coming, are you ready?!🕷🎃, Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers! I just could not hold myself back from making some Halloween goodies! 

Have you seen the new 2017 Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog yet? If the answer is no, I’ll be happy to get one in your hands:) 

Just send me an email with your full name and complete mailing address to Rachthestamper@gmail.com. I’ll send one right out because you will not want to miss all the goodies inside! 

There are some gorgeous fall stamp sets including an absolute stunner with Sunflowers! 

They have so many spooky fun Halloween things you will love. 

A new theme this year seems to be the several new stamp sets that have something for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas & VALENTINES TOO!!! How awesome is that?  It’s really cool that these sets can carry you all the way through the beginning of next year and then after that for weddings & anniversaries. You’ll have to see them to appreciate how versatile these sets will become❤️!

I saved the best for last…….Christmas! You will not believe the new Christmas stamps and accessories!!!! So pretty, so retro, so Merry!!!! There is even a Beachy Christmas set. So so fun🌴🌊

I’ll be posting new cards as often as I can to show you sneaks at the stamp sets and projects you can create until the catalog goes live on September 1, 2017! 

Thanks for stopping by and keep checking back in for new ideas. You can also follow along on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram @Rachthestamper

Until next time, 

Stay Crafty!

Thanksgiving blog hop: Stamp It Group, Stampin’ Up!

Hey stamping and crafting friends! Is it feeling Fall -like in your neck of the woods? We had some really crisp beautiful weather, and then like always, Summer tried to sneak back in this past week! I mean 80+’ in October…..WhAt is going on?!?!?!?! Well, I am going to revel in this incredible card and just pretend until Fall arrives 🙂

This was such a fun card to make, and the idea for the picket fence came to me in a completely different card that my friend Tami White created. It was inspired from a piano card, and when I saw the keys, I immediately thought “picket fence”! Crazy I know.

The video I created shows you in much more depth how to create the card, so feel free to power-watch it to get a better feel of the instructions!


You will start with a piece of card stock that measures 4 1/4″ by 10″.

You will first score it on the 10″ side at 5 1/2″, then turning it 90′, put the end of your card stock at the 3 1/4″ mark, and score down 1 1/2″, move your card stock down to  7 3/4″, and score up to the 1 1/2″ mark.

Turn your card stock back so it is portrait orientated along the 10″ side, and move the bottom of your card stock to 2 5/8″, and you will now use the cutting blade to cut from one 1 1/2″ score line to the other. Don’t worry if it runs over a tiny bit, it will not affect your card in any way.

You will want to reinforce the score lines with your bone folder.

Next you are going to stamp your trees on a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ piece of Whisper White. I arranged it into a scene so I could make the image look seamless once it is trimmed and attached to the card. What you will do once you finish your design is trim the Whisper White piece to  3 1/8″ by about 4″, another piece at 2 1/8″ by 4″ and finally a piece at 2 1/8″ by 2 3/8″. For the sentiment I used the third largest scalloped oval to cut the Garden Green, and the fourth and fifth largest and Val’s for the Crushed Curry and Whisper White respectively.

I created the fence posts by stamping the Hardwood background stamp in Chocolate Chip ink onto Crumb Cake card stock, then punched out the posts using the Classic Label punch.

I lined up the posts, here’s them down and then trimmer from the back. I cut a post in half lengthwise to make the support beams, again attached with Snail

This card has so many seasonal and sentiment possibilities! I hope you love it as much as I do!

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!!

Replay of Live Periscope, Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers, here is a closer look at the card I created Live on Periscope a few days back. It was so fun to use this new Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It gives so much more depth and feeling to your card. It makes you want to touch and feel it, just like a real-life cozy winter sweater. If you haven’t gotten this folder, I hope you’ll give it a second look.


Quick tip: wetting the card stock with the paper spritzer really helps loosen the fibers and give it some give to really make the embossing pop!

Until next time….Stay Crafty!!

A lot of these items contain really cool things from the clearance rack. They just added in a TON of new items, and they are while supplies last. But I also have a mix of things from the 2016 Holiday catalog, and the annual catalog.

I hope you find a little inspiration, and if you have any questions, or want any tips or advice, I hope you will not hesitate to contact me. You can leave me a comment here on my blog, or send me an email.

I am also on most other social media platforms, and would be glad to see and hear from you on any of those as well!

 

Until next time…..Stay Crafty!!

One Sheet Wonder leftover card, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers and crafters! This is the video for the leftover pieces that I made into cards, from those sweet little Halloween Treat holders!

The card bases are standard size of 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″, and the DSP  can measure either 4 1/4″ by 3″ or  4″ by  3″ (whichever you have left from your other project)

Hope you enjoyed this fun addition to the One Sheet Wonder!

Until next time……Stay Crafty!!
