Stampin’ Up! A Fall-ish Card Video Tutorial Sneak Peek!

Good morning, y’all!  I hope you’re fixin’ to have a good day!  The weather here is the answer to “why the heck do you live in GA with the nasty heat and humidity” question.  Because of FALL!!  All things being equal, Finny and I are headed south about an hour to a fun-drive event (horse carriages – not cars!).  We’ll be spectators only – but…I’m sort of excited to dip my toes back into the carriage driving world.  Not sure more than my toes will get wet, but…we’ll see.

Just so you know – the girls both just fainted down in the pasture at the very idea that driving might be back on the table.  NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!  😂😂😂😂

But – I’ll be back this evening in time to get together with y’all to make a cool Fall card for you over on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page!  I’ll go live at 7pm Eastern.  Take a sneaky peek.

Just so you know – I unleashed my collage-loving soul on this one and I think you’ll like it! 🙂

Hope you can join me – tonight.  7pm Eastern.  Right here!

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Gingerbread Easel-Treat Box Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Good morning and Happy Friday!  Wanna hear something REALLY scary!?  Hang on to your hat.

There are 93 days until Christmas.

Yes.  Ninety.  Three.

Less than 100.  Three months.

In other words…it’s TOMORROW!!!! 😳😳😳😳😳

To that end, I have a fun stocking stuffer for you today!  If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube Live then you were able to watch me make it.  If not but you’d like to watch the replay here ’tis!  I highly recommend that you watch it – this isn’t a terribly difficult box – but…it’s a LOT easier to see how to make it from a video than it is from reading!!

I saw this the first time at our retreat this past weekend – Susan Stanley brought one for us to make as her shoe-box swap!  Her version used the Blackberry Beauty Suite of products for a Fall theme.  Of course, you can decorate this little treat box any way you like – I’ve made it a Christmas stocking stuffer (cuz…it’s a perfect GINORMOUS candy bar delivery system!!).  I decorated mine with some Heartwarming Hugs DSP and goodies from the Gingerbread & Peppermints Suite.  Take a look-see:

This is a fun box to make – and I love that it adds the addition of an easel!

Note: you DO need to have 12″ x 12″ cardstock in your base color (mine is Crumb Cake in this one.).

I cut the Crumb Cake cardstock down to 9 1/8″ x 9 7/8″ and then used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool to score along the 9 7/8″ side at 4 1/8″, 4 3/4″, 8 7/8″ and 9 1/2″.  Then I rotated the cardstock 90 degrees and scored along the 9 1/8″ side at 1/2″, 1 1/8″ and 8 1/2″.

I cut portions of the cardstock “out” and created some tabs – check out the template:

…this is what it should look like when you’re done.

I matted three pieces of Heartwarming Hugs DSP on Garden Green cardstock and then used Liquid Glue to adhere one to the top and one to the bottom of the box.  Save the third matted panel for later.

I ran Tear & Tape Adhesive along the small tab (marked “Adhesive” on the template) and then, folding the opposite side over – lined up the edges and secured them together.  Did this sound confusing?  Yeah – I get it.  Check out the video – it’s a lot easier to decipher when you can see it! 🙂

I matted strips of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP on Garden Green and then used Liquid Glue to adhere them to the narrow sides of the box.

The easel is another piece of Crumb Cake cardstock, cut to 4″ x 8″ and scored along the long side at 3 5/8″ and 7 3/8″.  I applied Liquid Glue to the smallest tab and slid it inside the top of the box.

I used Liquid Glue to close the other end of the box.

The card front – if you will – is another piece of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP, matted on Garden Green and adhered to the bottom half of the easel mechanism with Liquid Glue.

I adhered a “cooling rack” from the Gingerbread & Peppermints Memories & More Card Pack with Liquid Glue.  The cookies are from the Gingerbread Dies – I cut solid shapes from Crumb Cake and the “icing” from Basic White (using the detailed dies).  I adhered them together with Liquid Glue and then popped them onto the cooling rack with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from Frosted Gingerbread in Garden Green on a piece of Basic White and then cut it with a die from the Tasteful Labels Dies.  I adhered the sentiment to beneath the cookies with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The spatula is a sticker from the Gingerbread & Peppermints Memories & More Card Pack.  I patted the sticky side on my shirtsleeve to un-sticky-fy it – then adhered it with a couple of thin pieces of Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I decided that the back of the easel needed a little sumpin’ sumpin’, so I matted more Heartwarming Hugs DSP on Garden Green and adhered it with Liquid Glue.

For the easel stop, I used a sentiment sticker from the Gingerbread & Peppermints Memories & More Card Pack.  I again de-sticky-fied the back and then adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals – setting it so it would support the easel at the angle I was looking for!

Y’all – that’s it.  All that was left was to slide a GINORMOUS candy bar (thank you, Susan Stanley!!) inside and close the top!

Et Voila!  I can see so many occasions that just beg for CANDY – and a wonderful candy-delivery-system would be awesome!  This one, for Christmas, gets a lot of help from the Frosted Gingerbread bundle and the fun Gingerbread & Peppermints Memories & More Card Pack!  What gift giving opportunity can you think of that would benefit from this treat box??

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Shaded Summer Above & Beyond Thank You

Happy Happy Hawmpp Day!  We’re on the downward slide to the weekend!  Whoo-hooo!

So – at the retreat last weekend, we did a little “class” on the Marker-to-Stamp coloring technique using Stampin’ Write Markers and the Stamparatus.  I’d taken my Shaded Summer stamp set and 2021-2023 In Color Stampin’ Write Markers to do the demo.  I was pretty happy with the resulting piece of art – so I tossed the panel into my stuff to bring home.  I decided to parlay it into a quick and easy thank you card.  Take a look-see:

The layout is from this week’s Sunday Stamps sketch challenge.

The art work that we made over the weekend is from Shaded Summer.  I put the stamp on the Stamparatus plate and a piece of Basic White into the Stamparatus itself.  Then I inked the various flowers, leaves and stems of the image using my Evening Evergreen, Pale Papaya and Polished Pink Stampin’ Write Markers.  The Stamparatus makes this technique possible – cuz you can stamp over and over in the exact same spot!!

I cut the image out using a Scalloped Contour Die.

I started the card by embossing a Basic White panel in the Pretty Flowers Embossing Folder – then I matted it on Basic White to make the card front.

Using a Stitched Rectangle Die, I cut a piece of Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In Color 6″ x 6″ DSP.  It wasn’t as long as I needed, so I cut it in half and used Liquid Glue to adhere it to the card front…separating the two pieces – the gap is hidden by the art work!

I popped the art panel over the top using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The sentiment, also from Shaded Summer, is stamped in Evening Evergreen on Basic White, then cut with a Stitched Rectangle Die.

Using Liquid Glue and a couple of Stampin’ Dimensionals, I adhered the sentiment over the artwork.

Then I added a Polished Pink 2021-2023 In Color Jewel and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Shaded Summer sentiment in Evening Evergreen on a Basic White panel and added a Polished Pink In Color jewel.  In the corners, I added the small leaf image from the set a couple three (okay – four!) times in stamped-off-once Evening Evergreen.

I used Stampin’ Seal to adhere the panel to a Basic White panel and then into my Thick Basic White card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Shaded Summer leaves on the front – in full-strength Evening Evergreen…

…and more of the Pale Papaya 2021-2023 In Color DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This big and beautiful floral image in Shaded Summer just begs for the Marker-to-Stamp coloring technique, don’t you think?  Give it a try soon!

I hope you like!  And…don’t forget that – thru the end of September – you can score the Summer Shadows die set for FREE with a $100+ purchase!  These dies cut the pretty images in the Shaded Summer stamp set – so…you’re going to be happy to have it in your stash!

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Festive & Bright Christmas Card – a Retreat Card!

Hello, y’all – it’s Tuesday!  Tuesday is such a….”meh” kind of day.  It’s not the first day of the week (yuk).  It’s not the last day (yeah!) nor even the day BEFORE the last day (light at the end of the tunnel) and it’s fer sure not HAWWWMP Day!  It’s just…Tuesday.  Another day to slog thru to get to a day with a purpose! 🤷‍♀️

So…maybe this cheery card – brought to us by Sue Prather – that we created over the weekend at our retreat – will give you a little boost and something to be excited about! 🙂  This one uses the flyover Festive & Bright Bundle in the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog.  And some…FREE Designer Series Paper from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  I LOVE FREE paper, don’t you??  Take a look-see at what we did with this Peaceful Prints DSP and the Festive & Bright Bundle.

Stampin’ Up! Whimsical Trees & Wonder Top-Fold Easel Card

Good Sunday morning, y’all – from the North GA mountain!  It’s the last day of our retreat – hard to believe.  It takes SO long to get here and then –BLINK– it’s over!  We’ve had such a good time I’m already looking ahead to a team retreat NEXT year here, too!  Maybe one of you reading this will join us! 🙂

Stampin’ Up! Peaceful Cabin Tailor Made Gift Tags

Happy Saturday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!  We’re having a marvelous time at our Retreat – crafting and yakking and eating and then repeating!  James is the consummate host – and we can’t recommend Crafty Elk Lodge enough!!  🙂

When we got here yesterday, we “moved in” to the crafting area and got everything set up.  Which included setting out some welcome gifts!  I figured you’d like to see a very cool gift tag that you can put in your toolkit.  Not to put too fine a point on it – but…it’s the 18th of September.  There’s like…three months left before the Big Gift Giving season is upon us!  Consider this tag – cut using the Tailored Tag Die Set and decorated with the Peaceful Cabin bundle!  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Christmas Whimsy Kit Peek!

Good morning and…let me be the first to wish you a very Happy HAWWWMP DAY!!!  Yes!  It’s Wednesday – and….THAT means that I only have two sleeps before I head to the airport to pick up Amy and Karen and then head up to the north GA mountains for our Inkin’ Krew Retreat!  I am so excited to see everyone – and I’ve got a couple of ladies who are in my Crittters-N-Creatin’ Krew Team that I’ve never met in person!  Plenty of time on Zoom – but…this’ll be the first time we’re in the same spot!  It’s going to be a blast!  I’ll share pics as I’m able thru the weekend!

Stampin’ Up! recently released a brand new All-Inclusive Kit called Christmas Whimsy.  I ordered it first jump out the gate and when it came….I dove in!  Remember – this is the one I think looks like it come straight outta Who-Ville!!

When I opened it up I found everything – and I do mean….EVERYTHING!…I needed to make eight fun Christmas cards!

THAT is the neat and tidy image from Stampin’ Up!  Here’s my hot mess!

Great job, Mare! 🤦‍♀️

But – I popped all the die cut pieces, folded the two designs of card bases and opened up the instructions.  I decided that at least for this first one, I’d do them exactly as the instructions said.

The instruction sheet is cool – they used pictures to let you know what to do and in what order – and (unlike some picture directions – you know the ones I mean!) – THESE actually WORK!

I mean – they even tell you how many stars or snowflakes to use and where to put the Dimensionals! 👍👍👍

I used the enclosed Night of Navy Ink Spot and the exclusive stamp set to stamp snowflakes and stars on the card bases – and stamp the sentiments.  This is where I DID depart a little – I’m not a huge “Season’s Greetings”  fan so I did them all with Merry Christmas.  But…you can do whichever you prefer – they both fit on the labels perfectly (thanks, Stampin’ Up!).

 

There’s a roll of Gold Trim to use on each design – love the tag “tied” on (in truth it’s got a little Glue Dot and the tag itself is popped on with a couple of dimensionals!).   And there are pretty blue foil snowflakes and stars adhesive-backed sequins to add, too!

The second design also gets a little gold foil star “sticker” added – only hard part here is making sure to get the ladder onto the card front straight so that it doesn’t look like someone is fixin’ to end up in the ER!

There’s even an “inside” sentiment that I used – and added some Night of Navy stamped stars.

I guess Stampin’ Up! has heard me say #nonekkidenvelopes cuz they included some beautiful envelopes with Gold Foil accents.

But…I added some stars to the front, too.  Cuz….I could! 😉

Et Voila!  In the blink of an eye I had eight fun full-sized cards – with insides stamped and ready – and decorated envelopes – all ready to get signed, stamped and mailed!  No cutting (except for the Gold Trim!) required – and the easy instructions make this a PERFECT project for new stampers or kids or….pretty much anyone who needs really cute Christmas cards!  It would be a GREAT activity to do together with family and friends – order a few kits and get to creating! 🙂

I hope you like!

And – this isn’t the ONLY kit that we’ve got available right now!  Check them all out – we’ve got stamping kits and even NON-Stamping kits for you to choose from.  Stop by the online store Kits Collection to pick up your kits!  Don’t forget that the kits are only available while supplies last, so order quick to make sure that you get yours…and pick up some free Sale-a-bration goodies if your order reaches $50!
