Delightful Daisy DSP, Stampin’ Up!


Hi stampers!

Here are a few variations of the Double Gate Fold Peekaboo card we made at our workshop on Friday evening.

I made a video and prior blog post with full instructions if you need to know how to make it!

We also used the Eastern Beauty stamp set and as you can see, this is a totally different look then you’ve probabaly seen in samples of Eastern Palace!

 

Hope you enjoyed this share,

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.

Mini cards with Carried Away DSP, Stampin’ Up!

 

Hi Stampers! These cards are so very fun to make! It’s like getting a two for one deal, because you can create so many, so quickly!

I hope you will forgive the shortness of this post….we are headed off on a little break, and I wanted to get one more post done for you, but I didn’t have a whole lot of time 🙂

You can make two tall, or two short cards, or four of both! They are super easy, and I can see a whole lot of these in my future. I also would love to see what you create. Will you send me some photos?

This is my one year anniversary as a blogger by the way! SO…….

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO US 😉

’cause I wouldn’t be doing this if it weren’t for you all! So thanks for sticking by me, and I promise to make this a fun, and crafty journey .

Ok, the cards  will vary depending on your choice of style. I will outline both, and you choose your fav.

Tall Card:

4 1/4″ by 11″ base of Thick Whisper White, score at 5 1/2″, then cut in half at 2 1/8″.

DSP layer measures 2″ by 5 2/8″, just add with some snail, and add the balloons with a dimensional, add clouds if you wish. Stamp your sentiment in Night of Navy, flag the end and add with snail or mini glue dots.

Wide Card:

5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, then cut in half at 2 6/8″.

DSP layer measures 2 1/2″ by 4″, again add with snail, and add a few dimensionals to the Night of Navy balloon, and attach. Add clouds if desired. Stamp your sentiment in Night of Navy ink and add with mini glue dots.

BOOM! Easy! Done, and this is such a fun, and simple card to make your own.

You can use a regular envelope to mail this since the clouds hang off, but the envelope is large enough to hold them in place.

Make sure to check out the video for a few extra tips and ideas!

Until next time…….

Stay Crafty!

Valentine’s Little Box , Stampin’ Up!

Hi stampers! I am happy to share the little box instructions with you! I really thought I already made this blog post and video, and I did, but it was on a Facebook Live, and I am not able to copy it to here. So, since so many asked, and I TRULY LOVE your feedback, I decided to get to it and fast. You are the reason I do this after all 🙂

Ok first of all, this doesn’t need to be a “little” box, you can make it whatever size you may want or need. As long as your paper is square, you are good to go. Mind you I think most paper stops at a 12×12 size, but let your heart run wild!

You will need a square piece of DSP or cardstock, Tombow Liquid glue, and your bone folder.

Another note, the Specialty DSP, is a little thinner, and will tend to rip a bit more, so if you choose to use it, be gentle with your folding , and maybe hold out on using your bone folder unless necessary.

Also, using card stock as your box, is much thicker, and can be done, but you will definitely need your bone folder.

So to sum it up, the regular DSP ( of any kind, In Color, patterned, solid color) will work the best, but the other will be fine as well, as long as you are patient.

Make sure your DSP is square, 6×6, 8×8, 5×5, 12×12, you get the idea, then follow the folds below.

So, forgive me, I reused the instruction photos from the Christmas Version ( it has been overcast and rainy, and I didn’t want to post dim photos)

 

 

 

 

 

I reloaded the Valentine’s version onto this , so you could follow along with both if you liked!

 

 


12″ by 12″ piece of DSP

Trimmed to 8″ by8″

Keep a 3″ by 3″ piece of the DSP and cut a 2 3/4″ by 2 3/4″ square of Very Vanilla

Score the Very Vanilla piece at 3/4″ on each side, fold, snip at corners add glue dots and form inside of lid.

Add snail to DSP piece add sentiment piece cut from 2″ circle punch , layered onto a 2 1/2″ circle layer of Cherry Cobbler


Fold 8″ by 8″ piece in half, fold in half again in the other direction.


Fold corner to corner and brandish folds with bone folder. You will also want to fold corner to  corner  the opposite way to get an easier fold.

(Ps the DSP side you want to show should be facing up or out so you can see it)


Fold the corners in to form a square then turn so the opening faces you


Fold edge in and back to form a crease line to follow then fold the bottom of the left and right in to meet the crease

Fill over and repeat. When you’re done it should be the shape of a kite( see below)

Put your finger in the newly created fold and press open like a “squash fold”

You want the center of the squash fold to line up with the side of the kite( in a line)


Repeat on all four sides as above


You will then fold the edge of the flaps back in the other direction

Remember it will always match on all sides, that is how Origami folds work

On all four sides so they again match….


And once more it looks like a kite


The fold all four flaps up and brandish with bone folder

All four folder up (see below)


Put your fingers into the box and gently press open

And Voila!

You can gently curl the edges of the flaps with your bone folder to encourage them to go with the curve of the box and add adhesive to all four flap undersides if your going to attach them down

A Fun Gift box, Stampin’ Up!



Happy New Year STAMPERS!!! Here’s to another great year of crafts, cards and fun little projects 🙂

Sorry this is a tad behind the You Tube post, but I wanted to get the video out to you and post the measurements as soon as I could. You will find all that info below.

 

Alright, to start out you will need a 12×12 sheet of your card stock of choice , this will still work with DSP, but it WILL be a little flimsier. If I were you, I would just add in some DSP pieces to spruce up the box you create!

Pick a side, and you will score at 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ on each side, it is easiest to use the Simply Scored scoring tool and also easier if you score one side, then flip and repeat. I say this because from time to time, the 12″ measurement is just the tiniest bit off or not square. If you score then flip and repeat, you will get a truer box. ( Meaning more exact in the edges and overall squareness).

You are going to now turn to the unscored side, ( either one) and score at 3″ 5 5/8″. 8 5/8″ and 11 3/8″.

Thats it, now just fold on you score lines, you can use to bone folder for your creases if you’d like, then we will begin to trim.

You are also going to want to use either Tombow liquid glue or Tear and Tape. You will really want to secure the sides so it will not come apart when your friend opens it.

You will cut up the score lines on all sides at all lines, meaning both sides.

Trim off the two side slim pieces.

Trim in the sides of the 2nd and 4th sides on both sides, and snip a bit off of the ends because they will not need to be full length.

Trim the sides of the 3rd piece a bit, but do not trim the end.

Add adhesive to the thin fold piece, and the 2nd and 4th flaps as shown.

Fold them in, then fold the flap with the thin strip down and you are done.

If you want to add DSP to the top, sides, and front and back, you will need to cut the pieces as follows.

Two pieces( front and back long sides) 2 7/8″ by 4 7/8″

One piece( top piece) at 2 1/2″ by 4 7/8″

Two pieces at (two side parts) 2 3/8″ by 2 5/8″

I would love to know how you changed yours and what papers you used, drop me a line, or leave a comment and TELL ME! 🙂

 

Until Next time, Stay Crafty!!
