High Tide 2.0, Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers!

What a totally cool card this turned out to be. I made this at the end of last weeks stamp party that my good friend Ronda hosted. It was a smaller than normal party but it lead to some last minute creativity. A new stamper that joined us (my new-ish neighbor from Kentucky via Florida) was invited to join us for a peek at how to make cards. She did so, incredibly well  and caught on super fast. She is a “sometimes” scrapbooker so she had the general idea anyway. I brought a “Bridge Fold” card with me that I created with the brand new  set called Pieces & Patterns. It’s available June 1st, 2017 in the NEW 2017-18 Annual Catalog.  It was available for pre-order for demos and I got it right away. It has many unique background stamps, some iconic images and beautiful fonts.

Well, if you’ve been on my site at all, you know I ADORE the Beach and I thought the lighthouse from High Tide would make a great Bridge Fold card and away I went:).

I did this one a tad bit different from last weeks card as I put the “bridge” part (which holds the two ends together) under the outside flaps but still over the background portion. So it ended up looking like an amazing diorama-style card! This card will fit in a standard A4 envelope in case you were worried, AND as soon as I’m back from vacation, I will make a full video for it. Maybe even a Fcaebook or YouTube LIVE!

Let’s just say I see lots more of these in my future!

Until next time, Stay Crafty!

Z fold card, featuring Seaside Shore, Stampin’ Up!

 

Hey there stamping and crafting friends! Hope you are all well and enjoying this beautiful summer:)

This is such a fun card to create, and also leaves lots of room for changes to different DSP, card stock and ink colors, and most importantly stamp sets. You could make this into so many different variations, for so many occasions.You will just need to have a full sheet of card stock to start, and it’s a cinch from there. The video as always has some tips , and funnies, so be sure to watch it as well

 

Until next time…..Stay Crafty!!

 

Card measurements:

Base: you’ll need a full sheet of 8 1/2″ by 11″, you will want to cut it down the long side at 4 1/4″, but keep it 11″ long, you will want to score it a 5 1/2″, and 2 3/4″. Then from the remaining card stock base color cut either a 1″or 1 1/4″ piece, still 11″ long. Again you will score it at 5 1/2″ and 2 3/4″. You will need Whisper White to stamp your images on to, and the measurements are kind of up to you. You can either trim them down by a quarter inch, or an eight which gives a tighter border.

Quarter inch measurements:  2 pieces at  4″ by 2 1/2″, 1 piece 4″ by 5 1/4″, 2 pieces ( also depending on the side of your trim piece) 1″ by 2 1/2″, 1 piece 1″ by 5 1/4″.

Seaside Shore, Tank card, Stampin’ Up

 

Hi stampers! Happy Friday 🙂 Hope you are headed somewhere fun today, and it is sunshiney, and gorgeous where you are!! This is a really fun,  and fast card I am sharing with you today. Also, there is a quick and cute tip on covering your whoopsies in the video as well. We all do little goofs from time to time, but no need to scrap your whole darn card. You can almost ALWAYS save it…..the only one who will know is you:)

This is a tone on tone style card, with the base as a pop of color. It’s easy, and if you happen to already own the layering Square framelits, it will make the top layer even simpler to cut out.

The card base is 5 1/2″ by 4 1/4″,  White layer at 5 1/4″ by 4″, and with the “tank” layer at 4″ by 3 1/2″.

Super simple and fun, it can easily change into a Birthday , Bon Voyage, or Pick Me Up card.

Hope you’ll give it a shot……

Until next time, Stay Crafty!

Seaside Shore cards, Stampin’ Up

Hi stampers! With all of the summer fun, Finding Dory hype, and sunny weather, I couldn’t resist making this fun and easy card. I love all of the cut out fish, which I really enjoy doing. I am a one of the few who enjoy fussy cutting 😉 The peek through on this card is what really makes it for me, and the last minute additions to the front really bring it all together. I think sometimes, starting  with a simple idea, and seeing where it takes you, makes the best cards! These would also make great Pool Party invites, or if your little one is having a Aquarium party too. I hope this card has inspired you to give another look to the Seaside Shore Suite, it’s one of my FAVS!!

Until next time….Stay Crafty!

Christmas in June?!? Why not;), Stampin’ Up

Hey stampers! OH MY WORD, I saw this really neat idea on Pinterest. I am not sure, but I think it was using the Anchor from The Open Sea stamp set if you happen to own it.  I thought this was just the most adorable Christmas card. Really, how can you not just squeal? If you’ve watched me at all, you know I AM IN LOVE WITH THE SEA!!! This will make such an awesome card for your beach livin’ friends, your in laws in Florida( or other sunny locales), your Christmas time vacationing families……so many options. Or if you are like me at all, and just need another tiny excuse to throw in ANOTHER Sea inspired card;)

This is a VERY SIMPLE card to make, direct to card stock stamping, except I fussy cut the Starfish for the tree top. There is much more info on the video, and of course me yapping on about the total cuteness of this card 🙂

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time…. Stay Crafty!
