Seasonally Scattered |Stampin’ Up!

 

Seasonally Scattered is a new stamp set that will be in our Holiday Mini Catalog.  Can you believe we are even talking “Holiday, Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving?”  Oh my word… I want summer to last forever.  I guess Christmas planning in July isn’t so unreasonable.  IF only I was really that ahead of the game.  

 

Like I said in this post HERE, Seasonally Scattered was a difficult set to start with but soon it all came together.  

 

One of my goals with this set was to think a bit more outside of the box.  Ha Ha Ha!  I couldn’t think INSIDE the box but why not go really far outside the box.  I crack myself up sometimes.  

 

First thought was a little shaker card.   This is SUPER easy.  You just need a sewing machine for this card and you will be creating fun little shaker cards.

  • Fold your Crumb Cake cardstock in half. 4 1/4 x 11
  • Using the Chevron Background stamp, stamp the Chevron image “LIGHTLY” onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock using VersaMark ink.  Sprinkle Gold Embossing Powder over the image.
  • Using Heat Tool, emboss the image until Gold embossing powder turns nice and shiny.
  • Adhere a Doily onto the right side of the Crumb Cake cardstock front as shown in photo.  You will cut off a bit of the right edge.
  • Using your Big Shot, Circle Framelits and a piece of the Maritime DSP, use a Circle framelit that fits inside the doily as seen below.  You will want to cut a piece of Vellum the same size as the DSP circle.
  • Place some of the Gold Sequins between the DSP and the Vellum.
  • Using a sewing machine, stitch around the circle onto the card front.
  • Stamp the “Merry” image using Real Red ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and trim around the greeting as close as  you can with snips.
  • Stamp the “BE” using the Skinny Mini Alphabet set and Real Red ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Trim around the “BE” as close as you can with snips.
  • Adhere both greetings as shown below in the photo.
  • Stitch Chevron and 1/8″ Real Red Taffeta ribbon as shown below using a sewing machine or quick needle stitch.
  • Add Gold sequins to the Chevron ribbon using Whisper White Bakers Twine and a needle.

 

Seasonally Scattered, Stampin' Up!

 

I realize you are not getting the full effect of this beautiful stamp image since I trimmed the “merry” pretty close.  It does have the most beautiful swirls on these sets which make this a great set for all types of projects.

Create with Me

Purple has never been on my radar as for colors to use.  However this Blackberry Bliss is GORGE!  I most certainly will be using once Halloween comes.  I love how it paired so well with Coastal Cabana and Hello Honey.  

 

Now create it:

  • Card base is Blackberry Bliss cardstock 5 1/2 x 8 1/2
  • Adhere Whisper White cardstock 4 x 5 1/4
  • Stamp the Kindness greeting using Blackberry Bliss ink and punch image out using 2 1/2″ Circle punch.  Adhere to the Whisper White card front.
  • Using Coastal Cabana ink, stamp the dotted word image as seen in photo.
  • Cut a strip of Sweet Taffy DSP to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 (this piece is the Rich Razzleberry polka dots)
  • Cut a doily in half and adhere to the DSP as seen in photo.
  • Stitch the 3/8″ Stitched Satin Hello Honey ribbon across the top of the DSP as seen in photo.
  • Using Coastal Cabana Ink, stamp the starburst image onto Coastal Cabana cardstock and punch using the 2 1/2″ Circle punch.  Cut the Circle in half.
  • Using Hello Honey ink, stamp leaf and butterfly onto scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock.  
  • Punch the Butterfly using Elegant Butterfly Punch. Using snips fussy cut the leaf.  
  • Adhere all pieces onto card front using dimensionals.  Put a pearl on the middle of the butterfly.

Love At All Times | Stampin’ Up!

Love At All Times | Stampin’ Up!

Don’t you think our world needs a little more love?  Why not keep handmade LOVE cards around ALL the time? 

 

You all know I’ve been known to drop the Prince a love card or two outside of Valentines day and our Anniversary.  I want him to know he is LOVED all the time.  As paper crafters we tend to keep those love cards just for that type of occasion.  Let’s break the habit, shall we? 

 

Today’s card was meant to post on Friday but I had my hands tied in other activities.  It’s called children.  <grin>

 

Love All The Time, Stampin' Up!, Seasonally Scattered stamp set

 

This card was made for convention and part of the Displays.  I was pretty excited to get to make cards using an upcoming stamp set from the Holiday Mini.  Seasonally Scattered is a beautiful set but I won’t lie… it was a bit hard in the beginning to work with this set.  Once I had the creative flow going there was no stopping.  This set will be great for card makers, memory keepers, and even those who love to create home decor using rubber stamps.  

Love All The Time, Stampin' Up!, Seasonally Scattered stamp set

 

One trick for this card is the raveled twine under the ribbon and banner.  You will laugh when you hear where I found that beautiful twine.  

 

If you have used our beautiful Canvas Creations you know that you can pull on some of the strings and VIOLA have some really cool twine.  That’s exactly what I used on this card.  It was sitting on my desk from a project I had used while working with the Canvas Creations.  I looked at it and said… PERFECT!  I love how it looked and especially that it was white.

The XOXO greeting came from the Project Life Remember This stamp set on Page 27 of your catalog.  LOVE how this photopolymer stamp set made lining up the image PERFECT.  With the addition of the wooden arrow embellishment this card was ready for LOVE.  

 

Are you excited about this stamp set coming out in September? OR… Would you want this stamp set and others SOONER?

Do You Think Outside the Box?


Do You Think Outside the Box?

 

As a crafter it’s not always easy to think outside the box.  We see the product, we use it for it’s purpose and BAM…we are done! 

 

Or maybe you get stuck in a crafting nightmare (or RUT whichever you feel best describing it) and do the SAME thing over and over.

Today I want you to think outside of the box using the Kinda Eclectic stamp set.  Jump out of your comfort zone and create with me something that we can use in a few different ways.  

 


Kinda Eclectic stamp set, Think outside the box, Stampin' Up!, Display Stamper Conventionåç

 

 

Stampin’ Up! continues to bring innovative products that we can use to create amazing gifts for friends and family.   One of my favorites this past year was the Chevron Tag a Bag Gift Bags.  Then this year our newest addition is the Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bag.  I love that you can use these in the traditional use of a treat bag OR get creative and create a different size bag to fit your special treats in.  

 

I went a step further with the Chevron bag and created a pouch.  

 

Create with Me!

  • Using the Scallop Circle Framelit in your Circle Framelit collection, cut a scallop circle using one Chevron Bag and your Big Shot. 
  • Place a treat in the middle between the two scallops.  Make sure that you are not going to over stuff the bag.  
  • Place ribbon at the top so the treat can hang from something or you can skip this step. 
  • Using a sewing machine, sew the two Scallop Circles together. I used a zig zag stitch to make it more noticeable.  
  • Using Hello Honey cardstock, stamp the large sunburst image using Hello Honey ink.  Cut the image out using the Big Shot and Circle Framelits.  
  • Using a piece of Whisper White cardstock and Mossy Meadow ink, stamp the leaf image and fussy cut the leafs.  
  • Using another piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp the greeting with Hello Honey ink and then cut the image out using one of the Chalk Talk Framelits. 

Chalk Talk Framelits, Stampin' Up!

  • Using Whisper White cardstock stamp the dotted word image using Blackberry Bliss ink and cut the image out using the Project Life Cards & Labels.

  • Now it’s time to give away your beautiful treat bag.

Happy Wednesday.  Today is another fun day to share another display from Convention.  Each time I created with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set I think I yelled out a big squeal. 

 

Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set, Stampin' Up!

 

Create with Me:

  • Start with your cardbase of Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 and let’s tackle a few tags using this fun stamp set.  
  • The tags were created using the Moonlight DSP and cutting each pattern to fit the card with a slight angle.  
  • Using Hello Honey ink, stamp your starburst image and greeting in Blackberry Bliss on the grid pattern.  
  • Using a piece of scrap Whisper White stamp the butterflies using Smoky Slate and flowers using Hello Honey Ink.  
  • Punch your butterflies and layer. 
  • Fussy cut your flowers using your snips.  
  • Stamp the dotted word image onto Whisper White cardstock using Smoky Slate ink.  Create a banner of this piece and wrap around the Grid pattern paper.  
  • Using Dotted Scallop Punch, punch a piece of Basic Gray cardstock and Hello Honey cardstock and layer the scallops at the bottom of each patterned paper piece using Snail.
  • Gently tuck your flowers behind the banner. 
  • Layer a 1/2 piece of a doily under the Hexagon Pattern paper as shown in the photo.  
  • Trim both pattern paper pieces at the top to create a tag. 
  • Punch a small circle from Hello Honey and place at the top of the tag. Punch a hole and tread Whisper White bakers twine and tie in a bow.  
  • Adhere to the card base as shown in photo.  
  • Attach butterflies to the focal tag using dimensionals and add a Rhinestone.
  • Add a fun clip as shown in photo.
