Time is Running Out – Best of 25 Years Stamp Sets, Also, Are You Craftier than a 10 Year Old?

Warning, warning, that’s right, time is running out to get these great Stampin’ Up! 25 Year Anniversary sets, they are only available for 10 more days and then they are gone, gone, gone.

So get them now!

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

On another note. . . . .

Are you craftier than a 10 year old?

Let Hailie Jade show you how to make these quick flowers using  the Fringe Scissors .

Start with a 2.5″ x 11″ piece of card stock, DSP etc.

 

Fold the paper in half.

Cut the card stock on the folded side with the Fringe Scissors,  NOT cutting all the way through.

Add a piece of Sticky Strip double sided tape to the uncut edge and peel the red plastic off.

Roll the card stock up as tight as you can so that it sticks to itself.

Fluff it out by roughing it up with your fingers.

Make multiple colors and sizes.

Note:  make larger flowers by adding additional strips.  For the larger flowers shown here Hailie Jade used two card stock strips.

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

Have an out of this world weekend!

Until my next post. . . . . . .  .

Huge Hugs!

Mixed Bunch Tile Card – Stampin’ Up!

Hello There,
This morning I thought I would play around with creating a tile card with the Stampin’ Up! Mixed Bunch set and Hello, Lovely set.  I started with the free Sale-a-bration Designer Series Paper (DSP), Sweet Sorbet and used the colors in the DSP for my tile images.  This is much, much easier than creating a tile and then trying to find a Designer Series Paper to match.  Plus, I love the colors in the DSP.

Won’t You Be Mine – Stampin’ Up! Card

Hello There,
I have the best time making cards of love.  I do have to hold back and not cover them in hearts, like my soul wants to.  Usually, one or two hearts do the trick.  More than that and I think I risk having my card look like it was made by a second grader, lol.  I like my Valentine cards to look more adult like when making them for adults.  Hence, the 1 heart and the clean lines found on my card today.

Toil & Trouble – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #631

Well it won’t be long and my all time favorite season will be here.  I adore everything about Autumn.  The harvest, holidays and especially the colors.
I have always loved Halloween and have such found memories of Trick or Treating.  I never once had a store bought costume.  We made up our own costumes back then.  I was a hobo more than once.  Stick with a bandana tied to the end of it, grunged up jeans and over sized flannel shirt, dad’s old hat and you were in business.  What homemade costumes did you come up with as a kid?  I would love to hear about them.
About today’s project, I’m starting my Halloween projects early this year.   Just because I love to make them and I am so excited to already have the new Stampin’ Up! Halloween stamps in hand.    This project has the new Stampin’ Up! sets, Halloween Bash and Toil & Trouble in them, Oooooooo  very spooky. . . . . .
The complete tutorial for this card can be found below for free.  On a personal note, please help keep this site free by supporting me, a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, by ordering your Stampin’ Up! products online through my online store.  My Family and I greatly appreciate your business, thank you.  It’s with all my heart I wish to continue bringing you these tutorials at no charge.

Project Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Toil & Trouble (item 131724 wood or 131727 clear) and Halloween Bash (item 130577 wood or 130580 clear)
Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Basic Gray, Rich Razzelberry and Basic Black

Started with a 4.5″ x 6″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  Punched a 1 3/4″ circle from the sticky part of a post it note and used it as a mask for the moon.
Brayered Pumpkin Pie ink at the top of the card stock.
Brayered Rich Razzelberry ink next.
Brayered Elegant Eggplant ink at the very top of the card stock.
Removed the moon mask and then stamped the sentiment stamp from the Toil & Trouble set using Stazon Jet Black ink.
Sponged Old Olive and then Basic Black at the bottom of the card stock.
Die cut one of the dies from the Apothecary Accents Framelits set using Sahara Sand card stock and the Big Shot Machine.  Note:  I cut two but decided to only use one.
Note:  Only used the one on the left.
Cut the bottom off of the die cut.  Sponged Basic Gray ink and Basic Black ink on the piece.
Stamped the crow on Basic Gray card stock using Stazon Jet Black ink.  Cut the image out.
Cropped the main image panel by taking 1/2″ off of both the right and left sides of the card stock.  It now measures 3.5″ x 6″.
Colored in just the middle of the stamp from the Halloween Bash stamp set using a Basic Black marker and then stamped it on the tombstone.  Popped the tombstone and the bird up on the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Ripped the edge off of a 3.5″ wide piece of Basic Black card stock and popped it up at the bottom of the main image panel using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Sponged Basic Black ink around the edges.
Cut a 10″ x 6.5″ piece of Basic Gray card stock and folded it in half (card base).  Also cut a 4.75″ x 6.25″ piece of Basic Black card stock and punched the Chevron Border stamp down the left side of it.  Cut a 6.25″ x 3.75″ piece of Rich Razzelberry card stock.
Stamped the inside of the card base with the sentiment from the Halloween Bash stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink.
Put the card together and added two Sahara Sand Candy dots.  Here it is finished.  :)
May your day be spooktacular!

Sunflower – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #630

Hey There,

It’s kinda gloomy outside here in West Alexandria, Ohio today, but it’s not gloomy in my stamping room.  I brightened things up by creating this cheerful card using the beautiful Stampin’ Up! sets Sunflower and Backyard Basics.  I love, love, love nature stamps.  Just cannot get enough of them.

In today’s project I show how to use the emboss resist technique to get a realistic looking scene.  You can find the complete tutorial for this project below.

I think I should take this card out to show the girls (my hens), they did not want to wake up and come outside this morning.  They are probably up and running about now.  I’ll collect eggs here in a moment and check on them.

***************************************************************
I’ve added the featured card of the day to my sales page where you will also find some great deals on retired stamp sets and my beginner brayer videos.  CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT
**************************************************
Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .
Project Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Sunflower (128736), Backyard Basics (129255) and Lacy & Lovely (item 132025)
Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Whisper White, Soft Sky and Basic Black
Ink: Stampin’ Up! Crushed Curry, Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, Early Espresso, Old Olive and Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Stampin’ Dimensionals, , Clear Embossing Powder and Heat Gun, Versamarker, Stampin’ Write Markers (Soft Suede, Sahara Sand, Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo and Basic Black, Blender Pen, Stampin’ Chalk Marker and Daffodil Delight Grosgrain Stitched Ribbon

 

Started with a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Whisper White card stock.  Stamped the butterfly from the Backyard Basics set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

 

To get a lighter shade of Tempting Turquoise I scribbled my marker on my Stamp-a-ma-jig plastic sheet and then picked the color up with a blender pen and colored in the butterfly.

Added Island Indigo marker with the Blender pen on the inside of the wings.

Added some darker Island Indigo on the very inside of the wings and the edges of the wings using an Island Indigo marker.

Colored the butterfly’s body in using a Basic Black marker.

Colored over the butterfly (being careful to stay inside the image) using a Versamarker.  Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.  Now my image is protected and I can stamp over the image.

Loaded the Sunflower stamp with Crushed Curry and then using sponge daubers, sponged in Old Olive and Early Espresso right on the stamp.  Then stamped the image over the butterfly.  Wiped the ink off of the butterfly with a paper towel.

Sponged Soft Sky ink around the sunflower.

Added Sahara Sand marker to the points in the Old Olive area.

Sponged Crushed Curry ink on the sunflower petals.

Sponged Pumpkin Pie ink around the base of the petals.

 

Sponged Tempting Turquoise ink at the top of the card stock.

 

Cropped my main image panel down to 4″ x 5″.  Stamped the sentiment from the Lacy & Lovely stamp set using Stazon Jet Black ink.

 

Added a 6.5″ x 10″ Basic Black card base (folded in half) and a 4.75″ x 6.25″ Whisper White panel inside the card.

Also added a 4.75″ x 6.25″ Soft Sky panel, 4.25″ x 5.25″ Basic Black panel, Daffodil Delight Stitched Ribbon and using the new Stampin’ Chalk Marker I put dots on the butterfly’s wings.  Note:  This new Stampin’ Chalk Marker is the answer to our White Gel Pen woes, in my opinion  :)   Item #132133

Here is the finished card measuring 5″ x 6.5″.

May your day be bright and cheery!

Until my next post. . . . . .
Huge Hugs!

Perfect Blend – Stampin’ Up! Card Tutorial #628

Hey There,

I’m moving slowwwwww this morning.  Yesterday I did a bunch of heavy lifting and I’m paying for it today, grrrrr.   It was wishful thinking that my coffee this morning would motivate me.  All I feel like doing is hang out and stamp.  Hey wait a minute, that’s all I ever want to do, lol.

Anyway, I put together this coffee themed card tutorial for you.  It features a few Stampin’ Up! sets, Lovely Romance, Perfect Blend and Woodgrain.  Check out my tutorial below.

Now on with today’s tutorial. . . . .  . .
Project Supplies:
Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Lovely Romance (130267), Perfect Blend (131392), Woodgrain (128763) and Alhambra (126940)
Card Stock: Stampin’ Up! Very Vanilla, Island Indigo and Early Espresso
Ink: Stampin’ Up! Island Indigo, Soft Suede, Early Espresso, Marina Mist and Stazon Jet Black
Accessories: Stampin’ Up!  Sponges, Stampin’ Write Marker - Sahara Sand, Neutrals Candy Dots, Stampin’ Dimensions, Word Window Punch

Started with a 4.5″ square piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  Stamped the Woodgrain stamp across the bottom of the card stock using Stazon Jet Black.

Masked the top of the card stock with a post it note and sponged Soft Suede ink over the woodgrain image.

Sponged Early Espresso ink at the post it note edge.

Masked the Bottom of the card stock using a post it note and sponged Marina Mist ink in the unmasked area to create the back wall.

Sponged Island Indigo ink at the bottom of the Marina Mist area.

Wheeled the Alhambra wheel over the Marina Mist area using Marina Mist ink.

Stamped the coffee cup with Stazon Jet Black on a scrap of Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.  Cut out the whole image on the Early Espresso card stock and just the lid and the label on the Very Vanilla card stock.

Stamped the design stamp from the Lovely Romance stamp set using Marina Mist ink across the label piece.

Stamped the Sentiment on Very Vanilla Card stock using Early Espresso ink.

Cut the label out.  Sponged Marina Mist ink on the label and then Early Espresso around the edges.

 

Figured out where I wanted to put my cup in the scene and then sponged in a shadow for the cut and sponged around the edges using Early Espresso ink.

Added Island Indigo and Early Espesso card stock panels.   Popped up the label using Stampin’ Dimensionals and added Early Espresso Candy Dots on the label.

Punched 2 Word Window Punches from Early Espresso card stock and cut the rounded end off one end.

Added Soft Suede Candy Dots and pierced holes in the word window punches.

Here is the finished card measuring 5.5″ square.

Before I close today, this is what I was working on yesterday.

The girls got a new home.  They went from this small coop to this barn with a chicken run that doubled in size.

 

My day yesterday was spent securing the run by adding additional fencing on the sides of the run to keep the raccoons from grabbing the girls through the fence and the top of the run to keep the hawks out.   They also have some new logs to hang out on in the run.  Boy oh boy are those logs are heavy!  But the girls will love them.  Sorry, that blur in the foreground is Red off to chase a bug.

Sophie is my brave girl.  She hopped right up on the logs.  But the rest of the girls have to check out every inch of the base of the logs before they attempt it.

The additional space for the hens is necessary since I have 6 new chicks arriving on the 19th.  I can’t wait!

May you have new toys to play with today.

Until my next post. . . . . .
Huge Hugs!
