New Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge

Welcome back to another fun sketch challenge with the Paper Craft Crew!

I am really enjoying seeing the amazing cards that you make for each challenge.  I know you’ll knock it out of the park with this one, too.

Here is Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge 232:

Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge #232

This sketch challenge offers a lot of challenges – use of whitespace, and different elements and embellishment opportunities.

Here is my card:

Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge 232

The Supplies:

Cardstock: Sweet Sugarplum, Whisper White and new Sale-A-Bration 6″x6″ Glimmer Paper in Mint Macaron

Designer Paper: Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper

Stamp Sets: Special Reason, Avant Garden

Inks: Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron

Tools: Stylish Stems Framelits Dies, Big Shot, Precision Plate

Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Mini Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals

The How-To:

Start with a card base of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, and add a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel of patterned paper from the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper, using Multipurpose Glue.

Cut the next panels as follows:

  • Sweet Sugarplum 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″
  • Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper 2 1/2″ x 4″
  • Whisper White 2 7/8″ x 3 7/8″

Use the Stylish Stems Framelits Die and the Big Shot to die cut the medium flower into the bottom left and top right corners of the Whisper White panel.

Ink up the dots image stamp from the Avant Garden stamp set first with Mint Macaron ink, then Sweet Sugarplum ink, and stamp randomly across the Whisper White panel.

Layer the 3 panels on top of each other, using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

On a small piece of Whisper White, stamp the sentiment from the Special Reason stamp set, using Sweet Sugarplum ink.  Use the Stylish Stems Framelits and Big Shot to die cut the sentiment, and the layer beneath it in Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.

Next, die cut 5 of the small leaves from the Mint Macaron Glimmer Paper.  Assemble and attach the sentiment and leaves, as shown in the picture.

In the top left corner, tie a bow with the retired Gold Cording Trim, and attach it underneath the 2 leaves with Mini Glue Dots.

Sketch Challenge for Paper Craft Crew

The Inside Scoop:

You also want to stamp and decorate the inside of your card, too.

Inside of Sketch challenge card

I really like the coordinating sentiments in this stamp set.  Since I had already used a different one for the outside, I combined these 2 for the inside of the card.  I also don’t like to waste pretty die cut flowers, so I attached a flower that I had die cut from a different project! 🙂

Purchase the Special Reason stamp set together with the Stylish Stems Framelits, and you’ll save 10% off the combined price!

I’d love to hear what you think of this card, and the new Sale-A-Bration Glimmer Paper and other stamps that are available now!  Leave me a message on this post 🙂

Now, you’ll want to check out what the rest of the Design Team have created for this sketch challenge – they’re amazing!  Click on the Paper Craft Crew Blog, then link up your own card for the challenge.

Wishing you an awesome week, and have fun stamping!

Get Prepared for Wedding Season

Hi there, stamping friend!  We’re almost through February, which means that wedding season will be soon upon us!  Now is the time to start getting your cards ready, so that you’re not caught short-handed.

Sorry I’ve been missing in action for a few days; I have been busy, though!  Today I wanted to share with you one of the other cards we made for my Love & Stuff class earlier this month.  These cards are perfect for weddings, anniversaries, and even for bridal showers – just change the sentiment!  You  can see some of the other cards we made by CLICKING HERE.

Falling in Love Suite

This unique card features the beautiful Falling in Love Suite of products, including the So Detailed Thinlits Dies.

Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper featured with So Detailed Thinlits

Details:

Card Base: Blushing Bride cardstock measuring 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded in half.  After cutting and scoring your cardstock, use the Big Shot with the Falling Petals embossing folder.  Emboss the front panel of the card base.

Overlay: Use the Big Shot with the So Detailed Thinlits Dies and die cut 2 of the largest floral edgelit from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper.  Use the Precision Plate with the Big Shot for ease of release of all the intricate die cut pieces.  Fold along the straight edges, and add a Tear & Tape to the length of the solid edge.  Next, remove the tape backing, and fold the taped edge over each of the sides of the card, as shown in the picture above.  Use either the Multipurpose Liquid Glue or the Fine Tip Glue Pen and add dots of glue to the back of the intricate die cut areas.  Press the die cut over the front embossed panel of the card; hold in place for a few seconds to allow the glue to adhere.  This is how your card will stay closed; the card opening is at the top.  The combination of Blushing Bride cardstock and Glimmer Paper is just perfect for a wedding!

Decorate: Add one of the Falling in Love Embellishments to the point where the 2 pieces meet.  Attach using Glue Dots.

Pocket card using So Detailed Thinlits Dies

The picture above shows the panel being pulled from the top opening of the pocket card.

Here is a picture of the sentiment panel:

Sentiment Panel of Wedding PocketCard

Sentiment Panel Details:

Base: Cut a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock to measure 4″ x 5 1/8″.

Sentiment Panel: Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock to 3 3/4″ x 5″.  To decorate the panel, use the Delicate Details stamp set (available for FREE during Sale-A-Bration), and stamp the lace image across the top of bottom of the panel.  Use the Sahara Sand ink pad.  Next, stamp the sentiment from the Falling for You stamp set in the middle, using Blushing Bride ink.  Use the Multipurpose Glue to attach this stamped panel to the Blushing Bride cardstock panel base.

Decorate: Punch a slit in the top middle of the insert.  Add a length of Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon through the slit, then tie it off with a length of 1/8″ Ribbon in Gold.  (to punch the slit, I used the retired Corner Punch Trio punch).

Finish:

You’re now finished your beautiful pocket card, and you’re ready for the next wedding or anniversary!  One of the perks of this card is that it fits inside a standard envelope, so you can slip either a cheque or gift card inside, and it won’t get lost in the festivities.

Here’s another close up picture, so you can see the detail of the Falling Petals Embossing Folder, and how beautifully the So Detailed Thinlits Dies cut through the Glimmer Paper.Wedding Pocket card - close up details

Wacky Watercooler Spring Fever Blog Hop

Are you tired of the snow and cold weather, and ready for Spring?!  I know I am 🙂  Welcome, stamping friend, to the Spring Fever edition of the Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop!

How It Works:

If you haven’t enjoyed one of our hops before, you’re in for a treat!  All of our blogs are linked to the one before, and after.  All you need to do is click on the ‘Next’ or ‘Previous’ buttons at the bottom of the post, to carry on to the next post.  If the gremlins cause problems, or you’d rather hop about at your leisure, you can click on the ‘Home’ button, where you will find the complete list of participating blogs.

Who We Are:

Wondering just who the ‘Wacky Watercooler’ is?  Well, we’re a group of like-minded demonstrators who met in the online discussion forum, set up by Stampin’ Up! for demonstrators only.  We love to share  our love of stamping, so what better way than to get together once a month, and share with you!

This month’s hop features all things ‘Spring’, with products from the Annual and Occasions catalogues, as well as the Sale-A-Bration brochure.  I’m sure you’ll see a sneak peek of the upcoming new Sale-A-Bration products, too!  You’ll be able to earn them on February 21st.

Spring Flowers!

You’ve probably come to my post from my talented friend Libby Fens – aren’t her projects great?!  Jean always surprises me with her unique ways of using our products.

My first project is definitely spring like in colour!  It features one of the new Sale-A-Bration products that you can earn for free starting on Feb. 21st; it’s the new Glimmer Sheets!

Special Reason stamp set with Stylish Stems Thinlits

Details:

This card features the Special Reason stamp set and the Stylish Stems Framelits Dies, both in the Occasions catalogue.  It also features 2 Sale-A-Bration products; the Delicate Details stamp set (available now) and the 6″x6″ Glimmer Paper in Sweet Sugarplum.  You’re going to love the Glimmer Paper Assortment Pack; you get 6 each of 3 colours – Mint Macaron, Bermuda Bay and Sweet Sugarplum.

First I took a panel of Shimmery White cardstock, and die cut the flower into the bottom left corner.  Then I inked up the Delicate Details stamp with Sweet Sugarplum ink, and stamped the design along the bottom of the panel.  One of the great things about this Framelits set is that it has the detailed cut-out, which you can see on the panel, and it also has an outline die of the flower shape.  So I used that outline die to cut the piece of Glimmer Paper.  That way, it’s the perfect size, without any waste!  I then attached it behind the cut-out, and layered the panel onto a card base of Whisper White cardstock.

The sentiment is inked in Sweet Sugarplum, and stamped onto a smaller piece of Shimmery White cardstock.  The Stylish Stems Framelits Dies and Big Shot were  used to die cut the sentiment.  I used the Tags & Labels Framelits to die cut the tag shape underneath the sentiment from Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper.

Close Up - Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper

Isn’t this Glimmer Paper just yummy?!

Spring Birthday Wishes:

My next card has a definite Spring feeling about it, with pretty flowers and bright colours.

Avant Garden Tri Fold Birthday Card

 

Details:

This card also features 2 Sale-A-Bration products, both of which are available now; the Avant Garden stamp set, and the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon.

I wanted to make this a Z-Fold card, so I started with a Calypso Coral cardstock base of 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, and scored at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″.  The panels of patterned paper are from the Succulent Gardens Designer Series Paper; 2 pieces cut at 2″ x 5 1/4″, and 1 at 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The panel of Mint Macaron cardstock measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.

I stamped the watercolour look flowers from the Avant Garden set in Mint Macaron ink.  The sentiment is stamped in Calypso Coral ink on both the front oval and inside oval, and the dots are from the same set, stamped in Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral ink.  The Designer Paper really matches up with the stamped dots, doesn’t it! 🙂

The Oval Framelits and Big Shot were used to die cut both the Mint Macaron oval behind the sentiment, and the oval with the inside sentiment.  The Stitched Shapes Framelits die cut the front sentiment oval.  I like how the stitching adds a certain ‘finish’ to the shape.

Avant Garden Tri Fold card close up

After attaching the layers, I added a length of 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon in Silver to the front and back panels, as well as a bow to the front sentiment oval.  I like how the ribbon adds a nice finish to the card, and the whole colour scheme certainly is bright and spring-like!  (at least it is, to these winter weary eyes!).

A Birthday Gift:

Since I was making birthday cards, I thought that a nice little gift to go along with one of them would be a good idea!

Window Box Tealight holder

Details:

I guess as this is made with Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, it would go best with the first card.  This beautiful tealight holder is made using the Window Box Thinlits Dies.  And you definitely want to use your Precision Plate with the Big Shot for this one!  I have to say a big ‘thank you’ to my team member Lynn K., who lent me these dies, as I don’t have my own yet 🙂

Using these dies is quite easy; you die cut 2 of the main box pieces, then use the separate smaller dies for die cutting the large front/back panels and each side panel.  Here’s a picture of what it looks like from the side:

Window Box tealight holder - open

You can see that I’ve die cut the little holes in each of the side panels, and left the back panel open (unglued), so that it opens at the hinged end.  This allows you to put in/take out the tea light, or little gift, if you choose to use it as a gift box.

Window Box tealight holder - close up of tag

To decorate the box, I wrapped it with the 3/8″ Metallic Ribbon in Gold, and tied a bow at the top.  The sentiment on the tag form (which comes with this thinlits set) is in Sweet Sugarplum ink.  The tag was edged with the same ink, to give it a bit more dimension.

To dress up the tag, I used the same Stylish Stems Framelits Dies as in the 1st card, but I chose the smaller flower.  First, I used the detailed cut out thinlit to die cut the flower into the Sweet Sugarplum Glimmer Paper, then I used the outline die to cut out the flower – to release it from the piece of paper.  It’s awesome – you can either just have the detail of the flower die cut into your paper, or you can have the detail AND the full die cut flower!  You can do it with both the large and the small flowers.  Then I die cut the leaves from Mint Macaron cardstock, and attached the flower, leaves and tag to the ribbon using a piece of retired Gold Cording Trim.

Finally, here’s a picture with the lights off, and tealight lit inside the box:

Window Box tealight holder in Sweet Sugarplum

That’s it for my projects!  I really hope  you enjoyed seeing them; please leave me a comment, if you have the time.  Click on the ‘Next’ button below, to head over and see the amazing projects made by my talented friend Gail Allen.  You’ll be glad you did! 🙂

Thanks for spending some time with me – enjoy the rest of the hop!

 

 

An Awesome Sketch Challenge with the Paper Craft Crew!

Hello stamping friend, and welcome to another terrific challenge with the Paper Craft Crew Design Team!

I was sad to have missed out on last week’s challenge (this cold has been brutal!) but I’m back, and I hope you’ll join me!

Here is the Paper Craft Crew challenge for this week:

Paper Craft Crew Challenge PCCCS231

How about those cool elements?  Remember – you don’t have to use the *exact* elements as shown in the sketch.  Meaning, you don’t  have to pull out your retired Everything Eleanor stamp set for that gorgeous swirl (can you tell that I’m still sad that set retired?!) – you can replace it with something else.  Which is what I did!  Have a look:

Paper Craft Crew Challenge Cupcakes & Carousels meets Balloon Adventures

As soon as I  saw the image at the bottom right of the sketch, I knew I wanted to bring out my Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit!  I had just received it, and was dying to have a play with it!

Card Details:

  • My card base is Very Vanilla cardstock.  To replace the ‘swirl’ in the sketch, I decided that I needed to replace it with something birthday-ish, so I decided on the confetti image from the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  I stamped the confetti in Bermuda Bay, So Saffron and Calypso Coral inks; pulling the colours from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper.
  • I then pulled my Timeless Textures stamp set out, and stamped the dots image stamp in Calypso Coral ink across the bottom of the card front. I layered a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock under the strip of harlequin patterned paper from the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP, and glued them to the right side of the card front.
  • I used Bermuda Bay to stamp the sentiment on the tag from the Embellishment Kit – I just love the gold embossing around the edges!  The little bow (also from the Embellishment Kit) has an Enamel Shape in the middle, and a length of Calypso Coral 1/4″ Ombre Ribbon underneath it.  It’s attached to the bottom of the tag shape with Glue Dots.

I just love how this card turned out, and how quickly it came together!  I’m so happy that I got the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment Kit – I know I’m going to be using it all up, quickly!

So, let me know what you think about this card, and if you’ve bought the Embellishment Kit!  Finally, head over to the Paper Craft Crew Challenges blog, and see what the other Designers have created.  Be sure to link up your own card for the challenge, too.

If you don’t already have your own demonstrator, and want to order the supplies for this card, just click on the images below.  You’ll be taken directly to my online store.

Until next time -happy stamping!

 

Here’s Some Inspiration for Valentine’s Day Cards

Hi there, stamping friend!  Well, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day.  Are you ready, or do you pass on the celebration?

As a card maker, well – it’s kind of a *given* that I will have Valentine’s Day cards 🙂

It’s always an internal struggle for me; I know that we don’t *need* to be given 1 certain day to express our feelings, but it’s also nice to give and receive those expressions, right?

Last Friday evening, I had a group of lovely ladies over, and held a class I called “Love & Stuff”, because we don’t all need tons of Valentine’s Day cards, but we do need cards for other loving occasions, such as weddings and anniversaries.

Today, I’m sharing 2 cards that can be used for Valentine’s Day.

Valentine's Day card

Now this card, with it’s red & white colour palette, is classic Valentine’s Day!

Details:

The card base is Real Red cardstock, with a panel of retired Fancy Frost Designer Series Paper on top.

Using the Jar of Love stamp set, I stamped the jar images  onto Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Everyday Jars Framelits with the Big Shot to die cut them, and the bow, which had been stamped in Real Red ink.  To die cut the hearts from Real Red cardstock, I used the retired Heart Framelits dies (I don’t yet have the Sweet & Sassy Framelits).

The 2 jars are filled with paper from the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack.  I just die cut the inside jar shape, then trimmed the paper down, to fit the jars.

Real Red ink is used to stamp the sentiment, then punched out using the retired Oval Punch.  Then I layered it onto a Real Red cardstock oval that is die cut using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.  All of the elements are attached to the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

 

Valentine's Day card Heart Trio

Details:

This card would be great for Valentine’s Day, or you could use it for an anniversary.  I got my inspiration for this card from Pinterest.

Once again I used the retired Hearts Framelits to die cut 3 hearts from a panel of Very Vanilla cardstock.  It’s embossed with the new Falling Petals Embossing Folder.  I think they look like little hearts! 🙂

A panel of the little hearts/petals from the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper, is layered  behind the die cut hearts panel.  Before I attached it to the Blushing Bride card base, I glued a strip of Blushing Bride cardstock across the bottom, then attached a bow I made  with the Bow Builder Punch.

The So in Love stamp set is used for the sentiment; stamped in Blushing Bride ink, onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then die cut using the Tags & Labels Framelits Dies.  Sponging the edges with a Sponge Dauber and Blushing Bride ink softens and enhances the tag just a bit.

A Rhinestone Jewel added to the sentiment and the middle of the bow finish off the card nicely.

I hope you’re inspired to create your own Valentine’s Day cards!  Or just a nice card to give to a friend 🙂  I’ve just been seeing on the internet that ‘Galentine’ is a thing; I guess to give to your best gal friend.  Why not?!

To order your supplies to make these cards, you can click on the images below.  You’ll go directly to my online store.

Until next time – happy stamping!

Dragonfly Dreams Meets Inside the Lines Designer Paper

Have you taken advantage yet of the amazing Bundle of the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits?  As soon as I saw this bundle last November at the demonstrator On Stage convention, I knew I had to have it – I just love dragonflies.

Dragonfly Dreams Bundle

Better yet – if you purchase the Bundle, you automatically qualify for 1 FREE SALE-A-BRATION product!  I chose the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper as my free item, because I also purchased the new Watercolour Pencils, and wanted to have fun using them!

In this card below, I cut a piece of the Inside the Lines DSP, did some colouring, and added the cute little bumble bee die cut from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits:

Inside the Lines meets Dragonfly Dreams

The cardstock base is actually Melon Mambo, although the flash makes it look more light Calypso Coral. 🙁

Details:

To colour the flowers, I used the Melon Mambo and Rich Razzleberry Watercolour Pencils, and used the Blender Pen for blending.  The inside of the flowers and the bee (on the DSP) were coloured with the Daffodil Delight pencil, and the leaves using the Old Olive pencil.

I used the Big Shot and the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits die to die cut the bumble bee from Basic Black cardstock; I then traced around the bee shape on Daffodil Yellow cardstock, and cut it by hand, to layer underneath the die cut bee.  I attached the bee using Stampin’ Dimensionals, then added some Clear Wink of Stella on the wings.  You can just see the shimmer on one of the wings!

The coloured DSP was layered over a panel of Basic Black cardstock, then attached it to the cardstock base of Melon Mambo.  The sentiment, from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set, is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

This card could be used for a lot of different occasions, or you could switch the sentiment for a specific occasion.  If you’d like to purchase this Bundle, just click on the images below, and you’ll be taken directly to my online store.  For more ideas on using the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle, you can check out my POST HERE, where it was my featured Bundle of the Month.

Until next time – happy stamping!

It’s Not Too Late!

Hey stamping friend!

I want to take a minute to remind you about the best deal that’s happening right now – and it’s available to YOU!

I call it the ‘best bundle ever’, because you get to choose the products you want – they can be from the current Annual or Occasions catalogues, or from the Clearance Rack – PLUS during SALE-A-BRATION, you get to choose 2 EXTRA STAMP SETS FOR FREE!

In the business, it’s called a ‘Starter Kit’ – the bundle of products that you order when you join my team as a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator.

But I want to clear up a few questions you may have about taking advantage of this awesome deal:

Q: What’s the catch?

A: There’s NO catch!  You choose $165 of Stampin’ Up! products that you want, PLUS 2 extra stamp sets for FREE before March 31st/2017, and pay only $135.

Q: If I sign up, I have to hold parties, classes and sell tons of product, right?

A: Wrong!  You CAN hold parties, classes and sell Stampin’ Up! products if you want – because your friends will love you for it, and you’ll have lots of fun!  But you DON’T HAVE TO!  Many people join as ‘hobby demonstrators’; they just want to enjoy purchasing great products at a minimum 20% OFF every order, so they can enjoy their stamping hobby.

Q: But I’ll have to sell tons of products to keep enjoying the discount?

A: When you join my team, you are given 1 full quarter to reach your quarterly minimum sales, to stay as an active demonstrator, and keep enjoying your discount.  For example, if you join during Sale-A-Bration (before March 31st), you will have until June 30th to meet your minimum.  Not only that, but by joining before March 31st, you’ll be able to take part in the Demonstrator only PRE-ORDER of the new Annual catalogue products that starts in May!

Q: Okay, I want to join, but I can’t come up with all these amazing creative ideas that I see posted!

A: That’s okay – you’ll have plenty of places to find inspiration – and even CASE (copy and share everything) from the Stampin’ Up! concept Artists!  Stampin’ Up! knows that we all come up against a creative block once in awhile, which they encourage sharing and copying ideas with each other.  Of course, it’s polite to give credit to the original creator – and you can always add your own touch to an idea, to make it your own.  Plus, as a Demonstrator, you’ll receive weekly emails from Stampin’ Up! with great creative shares, plus a quarterly publication delivered to your home, that’s chock-full of great ideas, specifically meant for you to recreate and share!

Q: I want to join your team, but I don’t live close to you.

A: That’s okay!  As long as you’re within Canada, you can join my team!  The demonstrator agreement  requires that we must be within the same country, but we don’t have to be in the same neighbourhood.

Q: I want to join, but I have no idea how to make a business out of stamping!

A: No problem – you’ll get lots of help!  By joining my INKcredibly Creative Crew, you’ll be added to my Team Facebook  page, you’ll be invited to attend quarterly team meetings, and I’m always available 24/7 by email, or regular hours by phone and text.  I’m always taking courses to enhance my business knowledge, as well as social media technical knowledge, and I’m always happy to share what I learn.  Not to mention – the Stampin’ Up! demonstrator website has it’s own ‘Stampin’ University’, with tons of online webinars in all topics from business to stamping techniques.

Have other questions?  Please contact me!  Send me an email at debsmart@shaw.ca, and I’ll get back to you ASAP.

Ready to join now?  CLICK HERE TO JOIN THE FUN!  Just have your list of products that you want ready, plus your extra 2 FREE stamp sets.  I’m looking forward to introducing you to the rest of the team 🙂

See you on the FUN SIDE!
