Do You Need an Easy Gift Idea?

Classes / Events/ Facebook LIVE/ Paper crafting/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Happy Friday Stampers! Those of you moms, students, and just busy peeps,  I have an easy gift idea to share with you today! This card folder which holds six cards with envelopes,  can be made with minimal supplies. To save time since you would have all your supplies out, you could even make several at one time to have on hand. I can't think of anyone who wouldn't need a set of cards organized in a cute folder! Heck, why not make a couple for yourself and put birthday cards in one, sympathy in another, Thinking of You, and so on!

I purposely designed this to be a simple project. Now, if you are the Glitter Queen or lover of any embellishment, you can certainly “glam” it up!

Do You Need an Easy Gift Idea?

For my supplies I used:

1 sheet of Designer Series Paper (I used our new Garden Lane DSP coming June 4 in our Annual Catalog)
6 sheets of neutral CS, I prefer using Whisper White or Very Vanilla THICK CS – depending upon which is in your DSP
3-4 sheets of coordinating, colored CS, depending upon how many layers you want (for my project I used Mint Macaron, Garden Green, and Mossy Meadow)

I did this class in a Facebook Live video and you can watch it below. In addition to showing you how to make the folder and cards, I also share a few extra tips that I think will help you in your papercrafting:

easily cut your layers AND mount to your card base straight every time
save time mounting your cling stamp sets
stamp your sentiments perfectly straight every time.

Everything is Rosy – Rose Gold Samples

Die Cut/ Samples/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Happy Friday crafting peeps! I am having so much fun creating with the Everything is Rosy medley of products.

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

My favorite thing about this box of goodies is all of the rose gold that is inside! This is a new type of product offering for Stampin' Up!, so some of my customers have been a little confused as to everything that is included. For $80 (plus tax and shipping) you get a stamp set, a coordinating set of dies, eight 6″ x 6″ sheets of Rose Gold Foil, forty-eight sheets of 6″ x 6″ Specialty Designer Series Paper, six sheets of die-cuts, two full rolls of ribbon, a sheet of mirrored embellishments,  and a bottle of Rose Gold Shimmer Paint!

I have 2 cards to share with you today and I think you'll notice the rose gold on both of them! 🙂

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

To get the shimmer background, I used a sponge with a tiny bit of shimmer paint and “swept” it on the 4 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, starting at the top. It gets lighter near the bottom so I did this same technique again, starting at the bottom and working up, just to make sure I had the right coverage.  I punched a 2 1/4″ circle from one of the DSP pages and then adhered several of the floral stickers behind this circle.  I chose my tag and then used a “third generation” stamped flower in Melon Mambo ink, followed by my sentiment in Night of Navy ink.

If you haven't heard of the term “third generation” stamping it's just a fancy way of saying “stamping three times without reinking in between”.

I added a small piece of the pink ribbon to my tag and popped it onto the card front using a few Stampin' Dimensionals.

To finish the card, I attached this piece to a Whisper White Thick cardstock base. Personally, when I'm using layers and embellishments, I prefer to use one of our thick cardstocks. I think it is sturdier.

My next card uses a gorgeous piece of DSP with lots of rose gold!

Everything is Rosy - Rose Gold Samples

For this card, I stamped the sentiment on a 2″ Whisper White circle and attached this to a 2 1/4″ circle punched from one of the Rose Gold foil sheets.  The layer is a 2 1/4″ x 4″ piece of the floral DSP, cut it into three strips, each 3/4″. I mounted these on a 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Rococco Rose, one of our new In Colors.

I added one of the die-cut stickers to complete my card. Easy, peasy…done!

No Time To Stamp? Want a Beautiful Card?

Memories & More/ Tips, Tricks, & Techniques

Hey Stampers! Let's face it. We are all long on to do lists and short on time these days, especially where our fun hobbies are concerned. There are jobs to go to, kids activities, meals to prep and cook, the list goes on and on. When we have to slash the list, our “fun” activities are usually the ones to go.

Today's project features a card that has NO stamping! How's that for time-saving?

It uses our Memories & More card pack; and not just any card pack. This one is coming in the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog that goes “live” on June 4.These cards are part of a wonderful suite of projects that is perfect for casual AND avid stampers.

No Time To Stamp? Want a Beautiful Card?

The card pack includes 50 double-sided cards, 6 single-sided printed vellum specialty cards , and 4 sticker sheets, all for $11.00! In addition, if you scrapbook in addition to cardmaking, these products are acid and lignin free.

Here are the instructions and supply list for today's project. I think a set of these note cards, using different designs from the card pack would make a lovely gift!  No driving to the mall, no thinking up designs, totally easy peasy! Once your cards are put together, just pop them into one of our acetate card boxes and decorate with a ribbon bow or belly band and you're all set!

Supplies

  • Paper: Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (149487)

  3. Cut out the sentiment from the Memories & More Card using the 3 ½” x 2 1/8” die from the Rectangle Framelits using a die cutting machine.
  4. Adhere the rectangle piece onto the card front.

How Do I Watercolor With Stampin’ Up! Markers?

Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Videos

Today I'm here to tell you about my recent You Tube video. In this video I answer the question, how do I watercolor with Stampin' Up! markers?

Look closely at this picture. Glancing quickly it might look like I watercolored the image with a brush. But, I actually colored on the stamp using several Stampin' Write markers and then used an Aqua Painter to achieve the “watercolor” look. This technique truly is easy to do and you will feel like an artist! Trust me, stick figures are the extent of my drawing/painting ability. If I can do this, you certainly can. Here's the video.

I hope you'll watch and then give this technique a try! I have lots of video tutorials on my channel and more coming all the time. If you subscribe, you won't miss any! Also, if you like this video and technique, please hit the “thumbs up” icon on my channel.

Green With Envy - Mossy Meadow Round Two!

This technique really adds dimension to the card. Try this with different ink colors and you'll be amazed at the versatility of the results. It's like having three ink pads in one!

Here are the supplies, cutting dimensions and instructions.

Instructions:

  1. Fold the Early Espresso card stock in half creating your card base.
  2. Stamp the tree on your Very Vanilla card front so that the trees closest to you are stamped in full strength after inking and the trees further away are stamped again without reinking your stamp.
  3. Then using your sponge dauber and Balmy Blue ink, very lightly ink the top ¾ of card front, creating a sky effect.
  4. Then using your Wink of Stella brush, add glitter to the fully stamped trees to give the effect of glistening snow or ice. Also dab the brush randomly in the sky for snow flakes and sweep across the ground for snow.
  5. After the glitter has had a few moments to dry, stamp your sentiment in the top corner.
  6. Finally, adhere your card front to your card base.

My Video Tutorial Library

Tips, Tricks, & Techniques/ Videos

Happy Friday Eve! I just love saying that; only one more work day and then it's “stamp 'till you cramp” time! 🙂 Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite technique videos from my video tutorial library on You Tube.

If you haven't subscribed to my channel, I have lots of helpful free videos for you to watch. Enjoy!
