Diecut from Basic Black card stock the word “Ride” using the Timeless Type Alphabet Sizzlits and the Big Shot Machine.  Note this alphabet is retired from the catalog, but you could substitute stamped letters or another die alphabet.  These letters are 1″ high.

Also colored the inside of the wheels in using a Sahara Sand marker.

Sponged Tangerine Tango ink the center of the sun.

Added a 4 1/8″ square Smoky Slate card stock panel and 2 Essentials Hardware Clips.

Added a 4.75″ square Basic Black card stock panel and a 5 1/2″ Smoky Slate card stock card base.  Pierced holes around the edge of the card base using piercing tools.

Added a bit more Sahara Sand marker to the center of the wheels.

Here is the finished card measuring 5 1/2″ square.

 

May your day be nothing but a smooth ride.

I’m heading out to the garden.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!

Cycle Celebration 1 – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #616

Hey There,

Check out this new set, Cycle Celebration from Stampin’ Up!   The images in this stamp set are going to be so fun to work with.  I have a million ideas floating around in my head. .. . . . . . . along with some other things, like old Gilligan’s Island episodes, lol.    Now I’m showing my age, yikes.

Anyhow, check out the tutorial for this card below.

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Cycle Celebration (item number 130273)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Calypso Coral and Designer Series Pattern Paper from the Neutrals Stack

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponge, Versamark Pad, Post it note, Circles Framelits Collection, Big Shot Machine, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat Gun, Crumb Cake Seam Binding, White Gel Pen, Stampin’ Write Markers (Calypso Coral, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and Blush Blossom), Subtles Candy Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals, and Piercing tool

Stamped the Soda Bottle with Stazon Jet Black ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.

 

Colored the ribbon in with a Blush Blossom marker.

 

Added Calypso Coral marker to the right and left sides of the ribbon and then blended it in with a Blush Blossom marker.

Colored the straw using Crumb Cake and Calypso Coral markers.  Also colored the dots in the soda Crumb Cake.

Colored the actual bottle using a Sahara Sand marker and added more Calypso Coral marker, blended with Blush Blossom to darken the ribbon.

Cut the image out.  Stampin’ Up! paper snips make quick work of this.

Put the image face down on a Versamark pad and then pressed it in the pad to get Versamark all over the front of the image.

Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  Don’t burn your fingers.  I used my piercing tool to hold the image in place while I heated it.

Punched a 2.5″ circle of Daffodil Delight card stock and masked the top 2/3rds of the card stock with a post it note.  Sponged Crumb Cake ink over the bottom unmasked area to create something for the bottle to sit on.

Removed the mask and sponged Soft Suede ink around the edges.

Got out the Circle Framelits Collection and die cut a 2 3/4″ circle from Whisper White card stock and a 3″ circle from Calypso Coral.  I could have used the 2.5″ circle from the Framelits Collection to die cut the Daffodil Delight piece, but I didn’t know what I was going to do with it when I started, lol.

 

Cut a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Calypso Coral, 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Crumb Cake DSP, 3.5″ square piece of Calypso Coral and 3.25″ square piece of Soft Suede DSP

Added a piece of Crumb Cake Seam Binding to the middle, adhering in back with Glue dots.

Slipped two pieces of Ribbon under the adhered one and tied them in a bow.

 

Layered my main image panel and added White Gel Pen dots to the Calypso Coral piece.

 

Added the circle layers with Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up and then added 4 Calypso Coral Candy Dots.  Attached the card front to a Whisper White card base.

Here is the finished card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and will give it a try.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!

Wetlands 3 – Stampin’ Up! Tutorial #615

Hey There,

Happy Monday! Actually, I’m trying to cheer myself up today.  I had to return my fun and beautiful 9 year old Grand Daughter, Hailie Jade to her Mother yesterday after having her here with me for 2 weeks.  She is so full of life and giggles, I miss her so!  Waaaahhhaaa. . . . . . . . It’s tough having a grand child that lives out of state.

Anyway, it’s back to just me and this big baby, Luke in the garden this morning.  It’s hard to be sad for long when you have this guy looking at you.  :)  What a character. . . . did someone say snack?

Here is an updated pic of one of the garden beds.  I swear it is going to bust at the seams along with the other veggie beds.  Zucchini, squash, beets, turnips, lettuce, radishes, kale, onions and carrots are all overflowing. . . . mmmmmm

But, I bet you want to see the tutorial on today’s project shown above, right?  I’ve decided to use the Stampin’ Up! Wetlands stamp set one more time before I put it back on the storage shelf.  Check out the tutorial below.

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Brayer, sponges, white gel pen, Stampin’ Write Markers (Basic Black, Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede), post it note

 

Started with a 3″ x 4.25″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  Brayered Coastal Cabana ink a little over half of the top of the card stock.  Brayered Coastal Cabana ink 1/4 of the card stock at the bottom of the card stock.

Brayered Bermuda Bay ink at the top and bottom of the card stock, not covering the Coastal Cabana ink entirely.

Brayed just a little bit of Island Indigo ink at the top and bottom of the card stock.

Masked the bottom of the card stock with a post it note and sponged Old Olive ink over the grassy area.

Sponged just a little Soft Suede ink at the post it note edge over the Old Olive.

 

Removed the post it note mask.  Darkened the neck and head of the goose with a Basic Black marker and colored over the rest of the goose using a Sahara Sand marker.

Added Crumb Cake marker to the back and belly of the goose and then blended it in using the Sahara Sand marker.

Added White gel pen to the head, chest, grasses and water lines in the water.

Darkened the back just a bit with a Soft Suede marker and then blended it in using the Sahara Sand marker.

Kept this layout super clean to show off the scene.   Added Basic Black, Whisper White and Soft Suede panel.

Here is the finished card measuring 4.25″ x 5.5″.

 

May your day be totally terrific.

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Wetlands (item #126697) and Woodgrain (item #128763)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Soft Suede

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Soft Sky and Island Indigo

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Brayer, Neutral Candy Dots, Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder (item #129984), Deco Labels Framelits (item #130102), Sponges and a post it note

 

I love Stampin’ Up’s framelits and this new set of Deco Labels is no exception.  So I started out this project with them.

Used the second to the largest framelit to cut out my main image panel with the Big Shot and Whisper White card stock.

Brayered Soft Sky ink on the top half of the card stock.

Brayered Island Indigo ink on the very top of the card stock.

Masked part of the sky area with a post it note and lightly sponged Island ink at the post it note’s edge to create my horizon line.

Removed the mask and sponged Crumb Cake ink at the bottom of the card stock to create the sand.

Stamped the grasses stamp from the Wetlands stamp set 3 times using Old Olive ink.

Sponged Soft Suede at the bottom of the card stock and then around the edges.

 

Used the largest Deco Labels Framelit, Big Shot Machine and Crumb Cake card stock and cut out my layer for the back of the main image panel.

Stamped the Woodgrain stamp on the Crumb Cake panel using Soft Suede ink.

Sponged Soft Suede ink on the edges of the card stock.

Cut a 4″ x 5.25″ piece of Crumb Cake card stock and embossed it using the new Modern Mosaic Embossing Folder and Big Shot Machine.

Lightly brayered Soft Suede ink over the embossed image to bring out more and to grunge up the card stock a bit.

Sponged Early Espresso ink around the edges.

Added a 4.25″ x 5.5″ Early Espesso panel, Whisper White card base and Soft Suede Candy Dots.

Here is the finished card.

Handmade Tag – Stampin’ Up! Tutorial #612

Hey There,

I have been busy of late making quilted coasters for my farmer’s market stand.   They needed a special tag.   You know you just don’t put this much effort into making something and then not package them well.   So, I’ve got a little tag project tutorial for you today.

To make the tags I used the brand new and exciting magnetic platform for the Big Shot Machine.  It makes using the framelits a snap because it keeps your framelits from shifting on you.  Brilliant product! Also used the new Chalk Talk framelits.   Super awesome product to make all sorts of tags.

The complete tutorial for the tag is below.  You can check out my previous tutorial on making quilted coasters by CLICKING HERE.

 

**************************************************

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .

Project Supplies:

Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Everything Eleanor (item #124164) and Creatively Yours (item #122612)

Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White

Ink: Stampin’ Up! Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sky, Old Olive and Stazon Jet Black

Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Big Shot Machine, Magnetic Platform (item # 130658), sponge, Chalk Talk Framelits (item #129983)

 

Using the Big Shot machine with the new Magnetic Platform and Chalk Talk Framelits cut out my tags using Whisper White card stock.

 

See the great pieces that come in the Chalk talk framelits.  You get all the little pieces that make very professional looking holes for your ribbon etc and tag shapes.   This set will get lots of use here in my craft space.  I can see using the hole pieces with my other framelits that I have in my arsenal.

After cutting my tag, swiped the Soft Sky ink pad across the top of the tag.

Swiped the Pear Pizzazz ink pad across the bottom of the tag.

Stamped the flourish from the Everything Eleanor set using Old Olive ink.

Stamped the bird from the Everything Eleanor set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Stamped the Handmade stamp from the Creatively Yours set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

Sponged a bit of Old Olive ink at the bottom of the tag using a pouncing motion.

Here are my finished coaster packs.  I added the tag to them using twine.

May your day be super special.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Huge Hugs!
