DSP Stained Glass Technique , Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers!

This is another quick and easy Way to create a stained glass technique card. For this version I use designer series paper to create the Stainglass portion and used the detailed dragonflies then let’s to cut out a dragonfly from thick whisper white card stock and then overlaid it on to the base of thick whipser white card stock.

I did a full video on YouTube to be sure to check it out for other details

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

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:)

2017 Retirement List, Birthday cards, Framelits, Retiring Products 2017, Stampin' Up

Bye Bye Birthday Fiesta, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! Another of my favorite sets will be retiring very soon, so if you haven’t gotten your hands on it yet, time is tick, tick , ticking away!

This card I wanted to show you an out of the box color combo that maybe you hadn’t thought  of using. It is certainly more girly, but goes to show you can change almost any stamp set around to fit your needs!

I made this card as a gate fold, which means I took a 4 1/4″ by 11″ piece of card stock, and scored it at 2 3/4″ on end of the 11″ side. Doing it this way will ensure a better and more even gate fold. Side note, you might need to trim just a hare from each it to make sure it doesn’t overlap, but that is personal preference.

I then stamped all the images onto two 2 5/8″ by 4″ pieces of Whisper White to layer onto the front of the card. I added a sentiment to the inside and layered onto a piece of Perfect Plum. And finally stamped and cut out a cactus and the sentiment, layered them onto a piece of Perfect Plum, and trimmed to fit .

Until next time……Stay Crafty!!

Mother’s Day Blog hop, Stampin’ Up! April









Hi stampers! Welcome to our Stamp It demonstrators group Mother’s Day blog hop!

I would love to say I was prepared, but this is another project, strike that TWO projects I created for this blog hop…….AT THE LAST MINUTE. Insert sad face here 😦 it seems I cannot get my behind in gear these last few weeks, however this is a testament that you can create absolutely anything , and a quite beautiful anything with minimal effort. That is what is so wonderful about all of the Stampin’ Up! products: they coordinate and compliment effortlessly, blend with each other beautifully, and keep your stress levels to a minimum :-D.

I did find the gift bag idea in the 2016-17 Annual catalog and  came up with the card inspiration from Pinterest. BUT the color combo was all on my own. It is such a pretty combo and even though we have the retirement list that came out, and the 2015-17 In Colors that are retiring, at least we still have POOL PARTY right!?!?!? If we could bring back Coastal Cabana, I may never leave my stamp room.

I did videos below for both projects, but I will still give out a quick instruction for each, and as always the measurements for the card!

Just a few notes, the 2016-17 Annual catalog retirement list is going and fast….so make sure you get what you want before the price goes up……..on eBay that is:/

The NEW 2017-18 Annual catalog will be coming to a mailbox near you very soon, and if you don’t have a demonstrator, feel free to drop me an email with your full name, and mailing address and I will send you one free of charge.

The Occasions catalog will be coming to a close as well on May 31, 2017, OR while supplies last. Please get what you have been waiting for now, once it is gone, all I can do is cry with you and pat your back 🙂

 

As always be sure to follow all the way through the hop and see all the beautiful cards, these ladies have created, and while you’re there, leave a comment, along with your name and #stampitcontest to bantered to win the super pretty Watercolor Wishes Kit!

 

Until next time…..Stay Crafty!!

Stamp It Group:Easter Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers 🙂

How are you all on this beautiful Blog Hop Saturday?

I am so happy I finally came up with a fun Easter blog hop idea. Well, ok: full disclosure, my stampin’ buddy Ronda did. She helped me a L O T, she is really good at helping me when my creative process is all buggered up! Also telling me when I have good ( and bad) ideas. She is able to think on the fly, and brainstorm in a fun and different way. That is why I would not trade her for a whole vat of Reese’s peanut butter cups…… and she knows just how much I love them too!

Now,  on to what you hopped here for,  the cards! I did these in two slightly different styles. One with the largest Oval from the layering Oval framelits, and another with the largest Scalloped Oval from the same set.

I used a quarter sheet of card stock for each card, which makes it super simple to create a ton of them, and you can swap out colors to make it more fun too!

Start with  a 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″ piece of card stock, and on the 5 1/2″ side, score at 2 3/4″. Then with the oval or scalloped framelit you picked, lay it down onto the BigShot platform, and put one of the long oval edges just off the card side ( at the fold) so you will not cut it into two ovals, but instead create an oval card base.

Repeat for as many as you want to make.

I then stamped two different sentiments with some flowers and background images, and cut them both out with the 2nd largest Oval from the layering oval framelits.

The sentiments are from the Suite Sentiments & Suite Sayings stamp sets. And, if i haven’t told you , the “Suite” series ( there have been a few) are MY FAVORITES!!!!

I just adore how there are coordinating fonts, and styles, and the words are all so beautiful and really versatile. I do not know who came up with them, but when I find out, they’re getting a card pronto!

Ok Rach, reign it back in 🙂  I also decorated them both a tiny bit differently. I added the Pearl Basic Jewels to one, along with a faux bow made with the 5/8″ Organza Ribbon. Then the Sprinkles Embellishments ( the matching colors to what I stamped) for the other.

I trimmed off a tiny bit of the bottom on the upright oval card to get it to stand, but I don’t think you notice it a bit.

For the Mini Egg Cartons, I kinda went a little nuts! I filled the stampin’ spritzer mostly with 70% alcohol, and dropped in about five drops of Bermuda Bay reinker. Close it with the lid, and give it a shake, then spritz away. I also sponged a bit of Cucumber Crush, and went around the edges with a bit of Sweet Sugarplum. I then cut some strips of Perfect Plum, and squished them up a bit between my fingers to make it look Easter-grass-ish 🙂 and finally added in my treats.

Hope you will give these sweet “egg” cards a try. I would love to see some of your own versions!

Until next time…..Stay Crafty!

XO Rach

P.S. I will get a video done to demonstrate how to cut the card bases later today if possible.

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!

2017 Occasions catalog, 2017 Sale A Bration, Birthday cards, DSP Designer Series Paper, Framelits, Stampin' Up

A Cupcakes & Carousels birthday! , Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers! are you loving the new 2017 Occasions catalog? I am! When I first opened it, this theme caught my eye immediately. It Brough me right back to feeling like a little girl at a birthday party, it is so fun and carefree! So I jumped at the chance to make a project to share with my other  demonstrators, and this was what I came up with……What do you think?

I love the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack! There are a ton of really cool patterns, and color combos. The Carousel Birthday stamp sets is fun, and whimsical. It is like the beach and a birthday party rolled all in to one for me! There are also a ton of little embellishments that go along with this theme. Tassels, ribbon, sequins, and all the colors in this suite make me happy, like a sunny day.

Alright ,enough with the syrupy sweet sap I have become…..on to the CARD!

Base layer is 4 1/4″ by 11″ piece of Peekaboo Peach, scored at 5 1/2″. I then stamped the Ferris wheel in Peekaboo Peach on the card as a background filler.

Sidenote: Peekaboo Peach is not a favorite of mine: but after this set, I really, really like it.

Next you have the hard part….choosing which pattern paper you want from the DSP stack, really that was the hard part for me. I did pick one that had Peekaboo Peach in it, but if you pick a different base color, you can certainly switch it up.

Layer of DSP : 2 1/2″ by 3 3/4″ mine was the harlequin pattern.

Stamp the circus tent in Dapper Denim onto Whisper White scrap, trim out, and add some Cajun Craze for an old tent look  if you’d like.

Stamp the Happy Birthday sentiment onto a scrap piece of Whisper White in Dapper Denim ink. Pennant the end with paper sips or the Banner Triple Punch. Mine measures 1 1/4″ by 3 1/2″, you can always make it shorter if you like. I also added a Rhinestone 😉

Stamp the Ferris wheel in Early Espresso, fussy cut, then go over with a little Soft Suede on a sponge for the aged look. Rhinestone in the center of the wheel.

Optional:  I added some Peekaboo Peach ink to an aqua painter  and painted it onto Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. You will need to add in some drying time, you can heat dry it a little with the Heat Tool, but it will smoke when it gets too hot ( TRUST ME ON THAT ONE) and it still doesn’t completely dry. Patience is best.

Then I ran it through the big shot, with the small icing part, and small cupcake base part that are in the Up & Away Thinlits dies set, which coordinate with this stamp set. HOW CUTE!!!!!

Attach these with mini glue dots to get a good adhesion.

So, to wrap up :

~adhere your DSP to the Peekaboo Peach base with snail

~adhere the Ferris wheel with dimensionals near the top right

~ adhere the Happy Birthday banner with Fast Fuse to the bottom left

~ adhere the tent just at the bottom edge of the DSP

~ add inside sentiment or your greeting!

I hope you enjoy this card 🙂
