Halloween Mini Milk cartons, Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers,

I want to send out my thoughts and prayers to all of those affected by Harvey, Irma, and the wildfires. I am thinking of and praying for you all. I cannot imagine what some people have seen and gone through in these past few weeks and I am very blessed to be safe with my family and friends.

My heart also goes out to the September 11th victims and families. It is a day I will NEVER FORGET. I pray you find peace in the memories of your loved ones. They will not be forgotten by me, and I thank them all for sacrificing what they had no choice in giving.

I have a project today that will hopefully bring a smile or smirk to your face, as we can all use a little uplifting on a day such as this.

I made these cute little mini milk cartons after watching a Facebook live that Angie Juda did this past Friday. She made an adorable triangle treat box, and I thought wouldn’t that be cool as a larger lidded project. I know I am not the first to think of this, but the way ideas come to me is usually through someones project that becomes something else in my mind.

That and for some reason as I fall asleep at night, I think about card or box ideas……probably why I am always so tired, seems my mind will not shut off.

Ok to on to the directions.

I made this box using a 6″ by 8 1/2″ piece of card stock. You could use DSP, but it may be slightly less sturdy.

Score on the 8 1/2″ long side at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″

Score on the 6″ side at 1 /2″, then move to the other unscored side and score at 2″, move this new 2″ score line to 2″ and score again. This will make your box much easier to close since all the squares are not exactly equal. You will have a 2″, 2″ and about 1 1/2″ box.

Once you trim up the pieces that need trimming and need to be removed, you will again put your card stock in on the 8 1/2″ side, lining up the 1st and 3rd boxes in between the 1″ marks on the Stampin’ Trimmer. Then make a small tic mark with the score blade, your stylus or bone folder.

After doing both, you will take a ruler and score from the inside corner to the tick mark on both sides, on both boxes. ( This will all make immensely more sense if you watch the video as you go along.)

You will want to be sure to burnish all of your score lines with the bone folder, and be sure to use a really good adhesive, like Fast Fuse or Tear n Tape.

It’s all fully explained in the video in case this seems confusing.

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

XOXO Rach

Peek Through Halloween card,Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers! Thought I would share this fun and easy to create card with you today. It was an older idea of mine that I revamped for a Halloween card, but you could easily swap out the theme as well

Hope you give it a try and I would love to see your results!

To make the card, take a standard card base of 4 1/4″ by 11″, score on the 11″ side at 5 1/2″, then on one of the 5 1/2″ sides, trim 1 1/2″ from the bottom, then trim 2″ from the bottom, this will make your bottom and cross piece layer to hold the card together.

You will then need a sheet of 4″ by 5 1/2″ of Whisper White to make layers to add on. You will cut it at 1 3/8″ and 1 7/8″ two times to make layers for your card base.

It’s all fully explained in the video in case this seems confusing.

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

XOXO 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:)

Blog Hop, Fall & Autumn, Fun Fold cards, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, NEW 2016-17 Stampin' Up Catalog, Punches, Stampin' Up, Thanksgiving

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!!

Embossing Folders, Fall & Autumn, Neutrals Collection, New 2016 Holiday Catalog!!, Stampin' Up

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!!
