Replay of LIVE Periscope, Stamp Therapy :) Stampin’ Up, Lovely as a Tree

This is a repost from last April 27th, 2016. Thank you for taking the time to look again. My dziadzi will always be special to me<3

 

 

For those of you who missed it, or may not have Periscope, here’s a video I did earlier today.

 

 I‘m using one of the oldest running Stampin’ Up stamp sets in honor of my grandfather who was 100 years young, that sadly passed away today. What better way to honor a carpenter who created things until he was a spry 98, than with some crafty creativity!!

 

 

I used :

# 127793 Lovely as a Tree stamp set

# 122959 Watercolor Paper

# 101650 Very Vanilla card stock

# 105119 Always Artichoke card stock

# 120953 Crumb Cake card stock

# 140931 Archival Black ink pad

# 126973 Garden Green ink pad

# 126972 Always Artichoke ink pad

# 126979 Chocolate Chip ink pad

# 131181 Soft Sky ink pad

 A Softer Balloon Adventure , Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampin’ friends! Hope you are having a wonderful day! Have you created anything today? Well, if the answer is no, then this is your next project! This is a tried and true “Z” fold style card, and it has a second layer to add some additional visual interest 🙂

This card is bright and full of fun in the 2017 Occasions catalog, and sometimes that can make it hard for people who may not bright and loud to see how they could use it. So ,I made this a very soft and feminine card, to give you a different perspective, and help you see some other options. But you can easily switch it out to your taste, and make it a bright card too!

Card base: Tip Tip Taupe measuring 4 1/4″ by 11″, score at 2 3/4″and 5 1/2″.

DSP layers for the base measure 4″ by 5 1/4″, and two 2 1/2″ by 4″pieces. Then two Whisper White pieces at 21/4″ by 3 3/4″. I stamped the balloons in Tip Top Taupe, doing one in a lighter shade by stamping off first. I stamped the confetti in Blushing Bride ink, and the sentiment as well.I added a few Pearl embellishments to the front too.

Inside base measures  3″ by 8″, score at 4″. Two Whisper White pieces at 3 3/4″ by 2 3/4″, and a DSP layer at 3 1/2″ by 2 1/2″.

You could add a little extra pizzazz to the front inside layer by punching a few balloons form the Balloon Builder punch in Tip Top Taupe and Blushing Bride, and pop them up on dimensional. I do think it’s a perfectly beautiful card, just as it is, do you?

Thanks for stopping in.

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!!

Pizza Style Treat Box, Stampin’ Up!

Hi stamping friends! Hope you are starting to accept the end of Summer and back to school; beginning to embrace that fact that Autumn, and soon after Halloween will be on their way. Its revving up to be the busy and fun time of year, and I always need a little head start on my Holiday crafting or card making. I came up with this brilliant idea for a mini Pizza Style box, to fill with treats and gifts. You could sub in Cash, Gift cards or various other great little gifts. I am sure you could even get an iPod, iTouch or iPhone into the larger box if you are a VERY generous gifter. Also if so, I would be so glad to be on your gifting list 🙂

 

Outside Front

 

Inside with 8 chocolates
Or inside with 3 Fun Size M&M’s

I made two different size boxes, quite by accident too! I started out making the smaller box, and when I filmed the video, I happily ended up with a slightly larger size! Serendipitous if I may say so, also one of the cutest movies if you need a suggestion.

I used DSP to brighten up both of these boxes. I think DSP on it’s own would just not be sturdy enough, but you can add some in to spice it up a bit.

This box requires some scoring and trimming, but honestly once you make one, you will find they are extremely simple to duplicate.

You will need a sheet of 8 1/2″ by 12″ paper to make the large box.

On the 12″ side you will score at 3/4″, 5″, 5 3/4″, 10 1/8″, 11″, 11 1/8″.

On the 8 1/2″ side you will score at  1″, 1 1/8″, 1 7/8″, 2″, then turn the card completely around, and repeat the scoring at 1″, 1 1/8″, 1 7/8″, 2″.

If you follow along in the video you will see how to burnish your fold marks , and which little bits to trim off.  It is much simpler to follow along with the video if you have the measurements on hand!

As always if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask 🙂

Until next time…..Stay Crafty!!

Country Livin’ , Stampin’ Up!

Hey there stampers…..sorry I have been away so long. I took my son the the beach for a few days on a whim, and my dad recently had an emergency surgery done, so the stamping had to take a back seat. That is really how I came up with this card, I nice relaxing view from the passenger seat or bed of this very cool old truck. I think the cards turned out so much better than I could’ve imagined since I stepped out of the color box for this one. I have seen so many GREAT cards with this set, but mostly in darker ink shades. So I thought I would go out on a limb and see what came of it.

Also I am nearing 1000 subscribers on my You Tube channel Rachthestamper, so I will be getting ready for a new giveaway too. There are so many fun things coming in the next weeks. There is a great new bundle coming out : Thoughtful Branches is the stamp set, and Beautiful Branches is a coordinating framelit set. They will be orderable on August 2nd, but only for a limited time. There are so many different cards you could create with these, and the words and font in the stamp sets are incredible and versatile.
