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

Anything But the Holidays, Stampin’ Up!

 WELCOME TO YOUR NEW HOME CARD




Hello stampers! This is a super fun style hop today, and this is my first “Outside the group” hop that I have ever done. I hope you like my design, it was fun to create. I always seem to look at the catalog in a different perspective, because I like my customers, downline and fellow stampers to get the most for their money with as many varied ideas as possible for a stamp set. I know a lot of people who simply do not purchase certain types of stamp sets, like Halloween or even Valentine’s Day for example because they feel they will never use them again. So I am happy to share this cute “Welcome to your new home ” card.

I tried to set the “New Home” apart by lighting up the windows and shining a light on it! I also thought adding in Garden Green trees would give lots of depth and filing to this actually quite simple card.

I cut several types of the houses, church and so on, and then layered them some flat, and some with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give much more of a “town on a hill” feeling.

Of course no card is complete, in my opinion anyway, without some Wink of Stella 😉

I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts on this cool card!

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

XO 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:)

Be sure to follow all the way through the hop, so you have 11 chances to enter to win a super prize. You need to leave your FIRST and LAST name, a comment & #STAMPITCONTEST to be entered to win!

2017 Holiday Catalog, 2017-18 Stampin' Up! Annual catalog, Blog Hop, Christmas, DSP Designer Series Paper, Regals Collection, Stampin' Up

Christmas in July Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up!


Hi Stampers!

This beautiful antique style Christmas card, was incredibly easy to create, and it can also be quickly transformed to be a winter card. It could even be a sympathy or thinking of you card ,with the change of a sentiment!

It was a card idea I had in my head, and then when I started stamping it, I didn’t love it. Then I had the thought to change it to an older, vintage postcard style of card, and the magic began.

I stamped the pine trees first in the background,onto a Very Vanilla panel by inking the stamp in Pear Pizzazz, stamping off once first, then stamped the image. I stamped the smaller reindeer in Crumb Cake, and finally the larger centerpiece Reindeer in Early Espresso. I filled in the bigger deer with a blender pen and the Early Espresso ink pad, and also used those tools to add shadowing to the deer for depth of field. I sponged the edges with Early Espresso as well, but I still was not completely satisfied with the look. So I ran a small clear block along the edge of the card stock to rough it up a bit and give an aged curl.  I then used the flat side of the sponge dabbed lightly all over the front in Crumb Cake to finish the aged patina.

I am so thrilled with how this turned out, but it needed a touch of a red color to slightly brighten it, but not a bright red, so I turned to the Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double Stitched Ribbon to add a slight color pop. I added the ribbon to a piece of Be Merry DSP with bit of Snail Adhesive. I mounted the front panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give some height and visual interest. Then adhered them to a Garden Green card stock base.

I didn’t stop there, for the inside I added the Pine Boughs in Garden Green ink by stamping them first full ink, then again without reinking to fill in the negative space. I sponged the edges as well in Early Espresso, and added the sentiment in that same ink as well.

I finished the front of the card, with some tiny touches of Clear Wink of Stella. I thought it added a bit of wintery Christmas magic.

Measurements

Base: Garden Green 4 1/4″ by 11″, score at 5 1/2″

DSP layer: 4″ by 5 /14″

Very Vanilla front: 3 1/2″ by 4 1/2″

Inside Very Vanilla panel: 4″ by 5 1/4″

So, what do you think? I am really pleased and think I may actually use this design as my family Christmas card…….well, until I get ahold of the 2017 Holiday Catalog I suppose 😉

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

Stampin' Up

Bridge Fold Card, Stampin’ Up!

img_5011.jpg


Hi Stampers!

Today I will share this really cool version of the bridge fold card with you. I am a little sad, I did a You Tube LIVE last night and it didn’t save! 😦 I am so bummed, but I will be making a new video this am, and I will put the link on here so you can watch. I made the video for a new friend of mine Diane, who asked to have a video so she could better understand the “bridge” part of the card, and I totally got carried away with the Flamingos in this set and thought it was just super cool!!

Here are the instructions:

You will need a 4 1/4″ by 8″ piece of card stock to make this, which is awesome in itself, since you can make two of these from one sheet of 8 1/2″ by 11″ card stock! That is a bonus in my book 🙂

You will score on the 8″ side at: 1 1=4″, 2 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 6 3/4″

Then you will need some pieces to decorate your card, you can use DSP if it is easier or you’re in a hurry ( that happens to me…..ALOT!!)

(1)  1″ by 5 3/8″ for the bridge piece

( 2 or 4 depending on how you decorate) 1″ by 4″ for the side panel strips

(1) 2 7/8″ by 4 1/8″ for the base, I used Glossy Paper

Shimmer White scraps for the  Flamingo and the sentiment piece ( gave it extra sparkle)

You can see the full video for better instructions on how to place your bridge, but you can either put it over or under your side decorative strips.

I also attached the Flamingo with dimensional to give it more pop and 3D value.

This will fit into a standard envelope, since it does fold down flat, and it will pop back up once removed.

A few tips:

Remember when stamping on Glossy Paper to stamp straight up and down, DO NOT WIGGLE THE STAMP or it will smear and blur.

You also need to give the Glossy Paper more time to dry, so you may want to do that first and set it aside while you make your base card.

More is more on this “diorama-style” type of card, it will make it more interesting to your  recipient!

Hope you like it as much as I do!

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!
