Sticky Note Holder, Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers!

Here are the instructions to make these awesome little sticky note holders.

You will need some 12 x 12 card stock of your choice for the background. You could even use DSP but it may be a bit flimsier, so I would use it to decorate with instead!

Base : 5 3/4″ x12″

You will score along the 12″ side at 2″, 2 1/2″, 6″, 9 1/2″, 10 1/2″, 11 1/2″

rotate the card stock 90*

you will score on the 5 3/4″ side at 1/2″, 1″, 4 3/4″, 5 1/4″

you will need to trim out some of the card stock along the long side, which is best seen by watching the video for full instructions.

Fold on all score lines and burnish with the bone folder to get strong creases that will hold your project more upright.

You will add adhesive to the two tabs to fold in and form the note holder portion and the bottom tab to make the project stand upright, again these are best seen in the full video.

Then you will attach the DSP you’ve chosen to decorate this.

You will need two pieces: one will be 3 5/8″ by 3 3/8″ and another piece 3 5/8″ by 1 7/8″.

I have decorated this numerous different ways, but in the version, I stamped the sentiment and then flagged the end with the Banner Triple Punch and attached it at a slight angle!

 

Hope you enjoy making this in the very near future:)

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!

XO Rach

Summer Fun/Patriotic Blog Hop, Stampin’ Up!


Hi Stampers! Thanks so much for following along on this Summer Fun/ Patriotic blog hop. If you started here, thanks so much for coming by, remember to finish all the way through to have more chances to win and if this stop was on your way through, thanks for visiting 🙂

The Mermaid Stamp set is one that stole my heart, like immediately! I fell so hard in love with this one!  I mean who hasn’t dreamt of being a mermaid ever since seeing Tom Hanks go all in after Darryl Hannah in SPLASH! Seeing them frolic in the mermaid lagoon in Peter Pan, or maybe for some of you young-ins ;-), Ariel in The Little Mermaid. They are so beautiful and graceful, plus who wouldn’t want to live near the beach, right?

I know my nieces will squeal with delight when they get this in a slightly different version for their birthday cards……Best Aunt Ever right here !!

 

Onto this pretty, but pretty simple card!

I created the base of the card using the “seafloor” in the Mermaid set, I stamped it diagonally for a different take on the stamp in Crumb Cake, and colored a few of the crabs, shells and starfish in with various Stampin’ Write markers. I then went back and stamped the “seaweed trails” in Garden Green, stamping off once before each movement to give an underwater feel. You could also accomplish this by using two different inks, such as Garden Green and Pear Pizzazz. I also stamped all the way around the card, rotating as I went along, so it appears as if you are looking down in to the sea from above. I added the ” bubbles” in with Marina Mist ink, some full ink and some stamped twice without reinking.

I added some depth by gently “read lightly-ish” sponging So Saffron, and the super lightly Marina Mist, to give a sand and depth of water feel. I also added in some Wink of Stella for that sea sparkle! You could also go over this with Versamark ink, Heat & Stick Powder and finally some Dazzling Diamonds if you want some extra bling.

The Mermaid, I knew I wanted free- floating, so I stamped her onto a piece of Very Vanilla again using Crumb Cake ink for a slight “tan” outline, that would be fairly easy to adapt her skin color to any tone. I used a few different Stampin’ Write markers to get her hair a sandy blonde color, and I used a mix of Powder Pink, Sahara Sand and Craft White ink to even out her skin tone. I hand trimmed her as close as I wanted to get a flowy feel, especially to her hair. I had stamped her tail in Archival Black ink onto Glossy paper and colored it in with reinkers and alcohol in a previous video you can see here.

I added the Mermaid with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Then to finish the inside, I stamped the sentiment in Dapper Denim, and again added some”bubbles” in Marina Mist.

I hope you like this cute first card I created with the Magical Mermaid stamp set. I know there will be lots of new versions to come!

And now onto the good stuff!

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!
