2/22 Sunny Day Card

Even though this card uses the stamp set called Vintage Vogue, I realize that this card is NOT very vintage . . . as bright and vintage do not normally go together . . . but I have such good news to share! The average high in southern MN will not be less than 32 degrees until late November! We've turned the corner and spring is on the way . . . at least according to the averages! (We'll just forget that tomorrow brings us another polar plunge! What's that I learned in Math class again? An average is just the midway between extremes? Well, that describes MN exactly!)

This card uses designer paper from Kaleidoscope. The other colors that make this card so, so bright are Melon Mambo and YoYo Yellow. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by my blog today!!

To recreate this card, you will need the following supplies:

Stamps: Very Vintage Clear Mount (118598)
Paper: Melon Mambo (115320), YoYo Yellow (102824), Whisper White (100730), Kaleidoscope DSP (115680)
Ink: Melon Mambo (115656), YoYo Yellow (102717)
Tools: Stamp-a-ma-jig for perfect placement (101049), Clear Mount Blocks C (118486), G (118489), H (118490)

2/21 Fancy Favor Leprechaun

Last year, I was blog surfing and came across this post HERE by Mercedes Weber and I was so enchanted by it . . . that I saved it in my March "to do" file for almost a year! My customers will be making this Fancy Favor Leprechaun favor box at my Big Shot class this coming Tuesday. Isn't he just the cutest?

I used the Fancy Favor Die as the box base and the Scallop Circle. His sweet little face is cut from the Circle Scissors Plus. I used the 3/4" Circle Punch for his nose. A sponge dauber highlights the nose and cheeks with tone on tone color. (Blush Blossom ink on Blush Blossom paper.) The googlie eyes are attached with Mini Glue Dots and the mounth is drawn on with the narrow end of the Basic Black Journaler. The top hat is 2 1/2" x 2 1/2 " with the Tag Corner punch accented the corners. The bottom of the top hat is flush with the bottom of the brim. The brim is 3/4" x 4" and corner rounded. The handle is 2" x 11" and attached with Earth Elements brads. You can see a side view below.

.
Here is what you will need to recreate this cute Leprechaun:
.
Paper: Glorious Green (101697), Pumpkin Pie (105117), Blush Blossom (103318)
Ink: Blush Blossom (102609)
Tools: Big Shot Machine (113439), Fancy Favor Die (115965), Scallop Circle Die (113468), Circle Scissors Plus (112530), 3/4" Circle Punch (107217), Corner Rounder (109047), Tag Corner Punch (107215), Sponge Dauber (102892), Paper Piercer to make holes for the brads (116631)
Accessories: 1/4" Pumpkin Pie Ribbon (109030), Earth Elements Brads (106955)

4/20 Stamping 411 Challenges


Here we go . . . another sketch challenge and another color challenge from Stamping 411! You can see the sketch off to the left. One thing that you will notice is that I took the sketch and stretched it taller. I had an idea in mind, but needed the card taller, not longer. The thing you have to remember about challenges is that they are your starting point. Never feel like you have to follow them exactly in order to play. They are meant to "jump start" the creative process . . . so check out the fun at Stamping 411 and show us what you can do with a stampin' challenge!

I used my Full Heart Punch to create the three leaves of my clover and to give them some extra texture, I just put them into the Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit Die and ran them through my Big Shot Machine.
.
Have you noticed the way the sentiment is layered? I LOVE how that turned out. I created it by using a die from the Lots of Tags Sizzlit die set. I trimmed one of the tags so into a rectangular shape and layered it over the top of the other tag. To show them off a bit more, I used a sponge dauber to accent the edges with Basic Brown ink. To make the skinny, skinny border . . . I cut two more tags with Gable Green paper and then I layered them behind my main tag. A button and a ribbon scrap finish off the look.
.
Here are the supplies you will need to create this card:
.
Stamps: Tres Chic (109258), Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370)
Paper: Glorious Green (101697), Gable Green (101768), Kraft (102125)
Ink: Soft Suede to stamp the background (115657), Basic Brown for the sentiment and edging the tags (104315) ---- if I were to make this card again, I would use Soft Suede for the whole thing. I made this card in two stages and when it was time to complete the card, grabbed Basic Brown thinking it was Soft Suede and didn't realize it until after the card was complete!
Tools: Big Shot Machine (113439), Lots of Tags Sizzlit (114508), Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslit (117332), Full Heart Punch (113693), Sponge Dauber (102892)
Accessories: 1/4" Certainly Celery Grosgrain Ribbon (109031), Sherbet Buttons (116312), Linen Thread (104199)
Adhesives: Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive (110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430), Mini Glue Dots to adhere the buttons (103683)
.

The color challenge called for More Mustard, Handsome Hunter and Ruby Red. I wasn't sure where to start so I grabbed my scrap box and started digging! I found the More Mustard Modern Label punch out, along with one half of a Top Note die in Ruby Red from the Hostess Level One 6x6 paper pack. A little more digging yielded a Very Vanilla circle and that is when I decided I had a good starting point for a card.

I needed a Charity Card for my March events and this will be it! I used the stamp set called Close as a Memory because I knew the flowers would look great in my circle element. They are inked up with markers, stamped in the circle and then stamped one more time to decorate the inside panel as you can see to the left. I layered the Modern Label punch with a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. That is truly my GO TO set for sentiments. I LOVE how almost every sentiment fits perfectly into the word window punch.
.
Here are the supplies you would need to create this card:
.
Stamps: Close as a Memory (114946), Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370)
Paper: Handsome Hunter (105122), More Mustard (100946), Very Vanilla (101650), Ruby Red Patterns from the 6x6 Hostess Level One Paper Pack (116234)
Ink: Handsome Hunter (105215)
Tools: Circle Scissors Plus (112530), Modern Label Punch (116630), Word Window Punch (105090), Big Shot Machine (113439), Top Note Die (113463)

2/19 A Fancy Irish Tote

I have a Big Shot Class coming up and decided to create a Fancy Irish Tote for my customers to make. I used Green Galore paper for the tote which goes together lickity-split when you use the Fancy Favors Die with the Big Shot Machine. When I first started making Fancy Favor Boxes, I thought you had to start with a 12" piece of paper to successfully make the box. But, I've since discovered that you can use paper only 11" long. It's just that your overlap flap will be shorter . . . which is really no problem, especially when you use Sticky Strip Tape to assemble your box. I actually like the shorter overlap so the 11" length is working out great for me.

The wonderful circle rings which looks so Irish to me, are made with the Lattice Die. I used Handsome Hunter and Glorious Green and layered them together. To make it more "circular", I just cut off the tips. You can see on the photo where that happened, but I don't think it detracts in any way from the overall design. I adhered the whole wonderful circle design to my box with brads from the Bold Brights collection.

The center of the box uses a stamp from one of our Sale-a-bration sets called Vintage Labels. I stamped it in Green Galore onto Whisper White paper, then punched it out with the Scallop Circle Punch. I stamped the label again, but this time used Handsome Hunter ink onto Green Galore paper and punched it out a 1 1/4" Circle Punch. And, one more time, the label is stamped onto Whisper White with Green Galore ink, the sentiment stamped with Handsome Hunter and then punched out with the 1" Circle Punch. That last circle is popped up on a Stampin' Dimensional.

The handle is made with a strip of paper 2" x 11" and adhered with brads. I just love this little project and hope that you do, too! I'm a little bit Irish through my mom, whose mother was Irish, whose mother was Irish, whose mother was from Ireland! My girls all get Claddagh rings when they turn 13. It's a tradition in our family.

If you would like to make this box, you will need the following supplies:

Stamps: Vintage Labels Clear Mount (119122) FREE with a $50 product purchase from Stampin'Up
Paper: Green Galore (101768), Handsome Hunter (105122), Glorious Green (101697), Whisper White (100730)

Tools: Big Shot Machine (113439), Fancy Favor Die (115965), Extended Cutting Pads (113478), Lattice Die (115958), Clear Mount Block (118486), Scallop Circle Punch (109043), 1 1/4" Circle Punch (104403), 1" Circle Punch (109046), Paper Piercer (116631)

To the left you can see the sketch challenge that Stamping 411 posted for the week. I used the set called "Happy Moments" which you can get for FREE from your demonstrator when you place a $50 Stampin'Up product order. I also used Itty Bitty Backgrounds around my flower image . . . another Sale-a-bration Reward Item available for FREE with a qualifying order! Isn't this a great time of year?

One thing that you might be noticing about this card is the darling flower embellishment. It's just a Scallop Circle punch with the scallops snipped in, stamped with Itty Bitty Backgrounds, distressed a bit and layered with designer series paper and a Jumbo 5/8" Brad.

.

And this card is for the Stamping 411 Color Challenge using the colors of So Saffron, Brocade Blue and Certainly Celery. The chipboard "d" is from a letter pack called On Board Loads of Letters. First I covered the letter in Whisper White Craft in, then I poured White Embossing Powder over it and heat set it for a nice shiny look.

The panel of Brocade Blue is swirled with Whisper White Craft ink. I used the embosslit die called Beautiful Wings to make some butterfly accents for both the outside and the inside of my card.

2/14 Love Bird for Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day! I was playing with some die-cut scraps and this is the card I came up with! A sweet love bird . . . most fitting for the day! The only stamping I did on this card was to create a background on the Top Note die. I used the vine image from Vintage Vogue. I just love making backgrounds with our Clear Mount Stamp sets. The colors on this card are Ruby Red, Old Olive and Kraft. I spritzed my Ruby Red panel with a bit of Isopropyl Alcohol before running it through the Big Shot Machine using the SU Texturz Backgrounds 1. Misting your paper with the Isopropyl Alcohol helps break down the fibers so that your plate leaves a nicer impression and unlike misting with water, the alcohol dries very quickly. You can also mist your Texturz Plate instead of the actual paper and I often do this so that if I get too much spritz in one spot I can smooth it out a bit with my fingers.

Have a great day!! Here are the supplies you will need to recreate this card:

Stamps: Vintage Vogue Clear Mount (118598)
Paper: Kraft (102125), Ruby Red (102030), Old Olive (100702)
Ink: Old Olive (102277)
Tools: Big Shot Machine (113439), Standard Texturz Impressions Pad (114614), Standard Texturz Silicone Rubber (114615), Texturz Plates Backgrounds 1 (114512), Top Note Die (113463), Bird with Leaves (113465), Serif Essentials Alphabet (113464), SU Embosslit Scalloped Heart of Hearts (117332) Clear Block C (118486)
Accessories: Kraft Taffeta Ribbon (109068), Basic Black Journaler (105394)
Adhesives: Tombow Multi Purpose Glue (110755), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430)

2/11 Vintage Flower Thanks


Here's a card I've featured at a couple of workshops this past month and also at my club nights. Isn't it pretty? This is the first card I ever made with the Vintage Vogue set that is found in the Occasions Mini catalog. I made it way back in December, but just never quite got around to posting it. I purchased this Vintage Vogue as a clear mount set so it was my first experience in trying out the new SU clear blocks and from the moment I stamped the tone on tone background . . . I was "in love" with the new clear mount system. How wonderful to be able to see exactly where you've already stamped . . . sooooo handy for creating stamped backgrounds! My customers are loving it, too!

The card features three sizes of silver brads and lots of punches. I love the way the colors go together . . . Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery and Regal Rose. The flower, it's stem and base are all raised up on Stampin' Dimensionals. I just love the "pop" that you get from a dimensional!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by for a visit! Supplies for this card can be purchased at my Stamping to Share Stampin'Up Business Website that you can find by clicking HERE.

Stamps: Vintage Vogue Clear Mount (118598), Teeny Tiny Wishes (115370)

2/10 Petal Card Die Ideas

Here is very quick and cute Valentine's Treat Holder that you can made with the Big Shot and the Petal Card die cut. My club members really enjoyed this and it is such a fast little project that you can make a bunch of them in no time.
.
To make it, just die-cut the Petal Card die with your Big Shot Machine, cut off to of the "petals" so that you are left with a heart shape. Put a 2 1/2" square piece of coordinating designer series paper into the square of your heart shape. I used a piece of DSP from the paper pack called Pink Flamingo. Fold up the remaining two petals and secure with Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive. If you use tape, it may pop open when you insert the candy. I haven't had a single problem when I use the Tombow glue. I enhanced the treat holder with a 1" punched out stamped image from "A Happy Heart" stamp set, and a scrap of white organza ribbon secured with a glue dot.
.
As you can see in the picture below, you can fit a Ghirardelli Chocolate Square into it just perfectly. If the candy wants to pop out a little too quickly, just secure it with a mini glue dot. (And then you won't be so tempted to munch it right away!)
.

Are you wondering why I have a summer card pictured with my Valentine Treat Holder? You'll never believe it . . . but the lady bug is made with the two petals that you trim off of your Treat Holder! I went to Splitcoast Stampers earlier this week in search of lady bug cards and THIS CARD by Mai269 was the inspiration I needed to create the summery lady bug card. The trail of words comes from the stamp set called "Flight of the Butterfly." I decorated up the card just a tad with an embossed butterfly die cut and a pretty scallop trim border.
.
Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by my blog today! If you are interested in ordering any of the products featured on these projects, please visit my Stamping to Share Stampin' Up business website that you can find by clicking HERE.

2/8 Stamping 411 Challenges


I love the challenges at Stamping 411! This is my card for this week's Sketch Challenge. It's one that photography does not do justice to. This card is super, super sparkly in real life . . . like real sugared flowers!
.
As you can see, the image panel gives you a lot of room to play and I hadn't played with my 5th Avenue Floral set in some time. I just randomly stamped the flowers on Whisper White, colored it up with my Aqua Painter and ink from the lid of my ink pads and then Versa Marked the whole thing. I sprinkled on Heat and Stick Powder and after using a heat gun to sticky it up, I poured on Dazzling Diamonds and heat it to set it.
.
The rest of my card went together very quickly. I used some designer series paper from the Sweet Pea pack featured in the Occasions Mini, along with some White Satin Ribbon wrapped around the bottom edge of it. My main image panel and the sentiment panel are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.
.
Here are the supplies:
.

And, every Thursday, Stamping 411 issues a Color Challenge! So this is my color challenge card. It uses the challenge colors of Taken With Teal, Real Red and Apricot Appeal. Notice my awesome Scallop Trim border around my Birthday Bot? I'm starting to get the hang of this whole punching thing!! I started with a rectangle sized at 3 13/16" x 2 7/8". If you haven't checked out Gretchen Barron's tutorial . . . you must do so today! Here is the LINK.
.
My bot is stamped in Basic Black and then just colored in with markers - super quick and simple. I accented this card with a strip of Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon and a bit of Scallop Trim.
