May 2020 Stamp N Hop Blog Hop

Welcome to the monthly Stamp N’ Blog Hop. This month’s theme is all about saying goodbye to our favorite, retiring products. You have just arrived from Jill Chapman’s post. You are currently visiting Nicole from the U.S. Thank you for dropping by. I do hope you enjoy my project.

I decided to use one of my favorite sets, Animal Outing! I am sad to see this one go, but it will go out with a fond farewell.

I used a Pear Pizzazz card base and Shaded Spruce DSP for my layer. I die cut through both layers at the same time in order to get my cut out in the right spot.

I stamped, colored, and die cut the little animals. The rhino and little koala were colored with Smokey Slate Ink and a blender pen. The kangaroo is colored with the Crumb Cake Blends Combo. For the giraffe I used the Daffodil Delight Combo and Dark Crumb Cake.

I attached the rhino and the giraffe between the two layers so that they were not seen on the inside of the card. I attached the kangaroo with dimensionals.

I added a little Wink of Stella to accent a few parts of the animals and finished off the card with some Rhinestones.

Lastly, I used Shaded Spruce to stamp the tree branch image on the inside of the card. My sentiment is from the Butterfly Gala stamp set.

Once again, thank you for visiting my blog today & that you have found inspiration to create your own project. Please click on the Next Arrow to hop along with the rest of us. Don’t forget when visiting to leave them a little love.”

May 6, 2020 Online Card Class

Hey everyone! Here are the pictures, video, and measurements for yesterdays Online Card Class.

The first cards pictured here are a slightly modified Z-fold cards. I usually don’t leave my top layer this big. Anyways, the measurements are as follows:

Card Base: 11” x 4 ¼”, sore at 2 ¾” & 5 ½”
DSP Layer: 5” x 3 ¾”
Whisper White: 5 ¼” x 4”, plus scraps for stamping and punching

I used the second largest die from the Stitched Nested Labels DIes to get the cutout in the DSP. Then I tied some Whisper White Baker’s Twine around the card, and added some Rhinestones to the front. The Ink Colors on the Yellow card are Mint Macaron and Shaded Spruce. The ink colors on the Purple card are Seaside Spray and Night of Navy. I added a little Wink of Stella to the Hot Air Balloon on the Purple card too.

For the second card, I used a regular card base. The measurements are as follows:

Card Base: 8 ½” x 5 ½”, sore at 4 ¼”
DSP Layer: 5 ¼” x 2 ¼”
Whisper White: 5 ¼” x 4”, plus scraps for stamping and punching and stamping sentiment

3 Cards from 1 Stamp

Card making really is THIS simple! Go from basic to pro in minutes with a witty card. I’ve got card design ideas for beginner card makers to the casual creator and on to the avid, fancy card makers. The inspiration for this card came fro. Lisa over at lisasstampstudio. You can see her cards here.

Today’s video is from my FIRST Coffee & Cards class, and it showcases three DIY cards, all using a single image. I consider myself an avid stamper, but there are plenty of times that I’m pressed for time and I need to simplify my handmade cards. But that doesn’t mean we have to skimp on pretty!

I’ve included pictures, cutting dimensions and supplies below. Be sure to scroll down to see them.

Beginner to Avid Card Making Video

The Witty-Cisms stamp set is a 9-piece set featured in the Mini Catalog on page 37 and includes greetings for any occasion – even graduation!

Beginner to Avid Card Making Details

If you’re already a stamper you no doubt are building (or have built) a collection of fun designer papers and embellishments. Oh, and let’s not forget about coloring mediums! From watercolor pencils to alcohol-based Stampin’ Blends markers, the choices are many. Today’s cards are a great representation of how you can use a single, stamp image and take it from quick and easy to stepped up and over the top.

Beginner Stampers – Quick and Easy

Are you brand new to stamping? The note cards and envelopes on page 168 of the annual catalog include 20 pre-cut and pre-scored cards and envelopes. Measuring 3 1/2″ x 5″ these cards are mailable size and require no special postage.

Casual Stampers – Add a Layer

If you’ve been stamping, even for a few months, you’ve probably added designer paper and colored cardstock to your inventory of supplies. Put them to use by adding a layer to your handmade cards. Today’s video walks you through the entire process of making this card.

Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers are effortless and leave flawless results. Watch how easy it easy to create shading and professional results with the tips I share in the video.

Cutting Dimensions

  1. Thick Whisper White cardstock base is cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
  2. Thick Whisper White cardstock for the image is cut 2 1/2″ x 3″
  3. Regals Designer Paper (Old Olive) is cut 3 3/4″ x 5″
  4. Pineapple Punch cardstock strip is cut 1/4″ x 5″
  5. Pineapple Punch cardstock layer is cut 2 5/8″ x 3 1/8″

Avid Stampers – Make it Fancy

Adding multiple layers creates dramatic results and can be easily achieved using squares or rectangles. Instead of stamping the image in the squares, I opted to color and cut them out and adhered them for added dimension.

Today’s video also teaches you how to use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to select specific words from a greeting. It’s a useful tip that will have you borrowing greetings from one stamp set to use with another!

Cutting Dimensions

  1. Thick Whisper White cardstock base is cut 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″
  2. Whisper White cardstock layer is cut 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″
  3. Whisper White cardstock squares are die cut to measure 1 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, cut 4
  4. Whisper White cardstock is used for the cactus images

Share Sunshine Projects

Hey everyone! I am having SO much fun playing with the Share Sunshone PDF. I have a few projects for you today! I printed out my sentiments on Whisper White cardstock.

This first card uses a Flirty Flamingo card base and piece of DSP. I used the Stitched Nested Labels to cut out my sentiment and make the space in the center of the DSP. I added a few of the Peacock Rhinestones.

The Thank You hero sentiment got me thinking…I know this PDF is about COVID-19 and the people on the front lines, but what about the people in the front lines fighting and working daily for our freedom? So I came up with this card. Using a retired star punch and paper trimmer, I created the flag. I used the Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out the circle and one of the heart punches for the sentiment.

This next card is a Z-fold card. Night of Navy is the base and I used Balmy Blue cardstock and DSP for my layers.

I added the words “For now,” to the greeting on the inside.

This next card uses Granny Apple Green cardstock and DSP. I again used the Stiched Shapes Dies to cut out the sentiment. I added a few of the Champagne Rhinestones to the front.

For this card I used Mango Melody cardstock and DSP, I cut out the sentiment from the PDF pack, and attached it to the card front. I then added some Glimmer Enamel.Dots to the front.

Lastly, I used Highland Heather and BlackBerry Bliss Cardsyock, DSP, and Ink for this card.

I also added some stamped images from the Dandelion wishes Stamp Set and some Basic Rhinestones as an embellishment.

Happy Stamping my friends and don’t forget to #sharesunshine!

January 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2020 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. This month’s theme is SAB and Mini Catalog. I can’t wait to show you my project!

I cannot take credit for this project. I got the idea from ones that Wendy Cranford created, and you can see hers HERE. Thank you Wendy for the inspiration! I created my boxes based on her measurements, but used the From My Heart Stamp set.

The measurements for the box base are as follows:

Cut your card stock to measure 5 3/8″ x 6 3/4″. Score on the short side at 2 1/2″ and 2 7/8″. Score on the long side at 3/8″ and 6 3/8″.

For this first box, the Heart Doily is what keeps the flap of the box closed.

The belly band for this next one is made from a piece of the From My Heart DSP and measures 2 1/2″ x 6 3/8″, scored at 1″, 1 3/8″, 3 7/8″, and 4 1/4″. The banner for this one was cut at 1 1/2″ x 4″ and punched with the Triple Banner Punch.

Both projects have a Starburst Punch and a Stitched Shape circle. Both of the sentiments are from the Heartfelt stamp set.

Thank you for hopping to my site and checking out my project! If you saw something you love, please contact your demonstrator to place your order. If you don’t have a demonstrator, I would love to help you!

3 Cards with Happy Birthday To You

Good morning my crafty friends! I hope you all have something amazing planned for the start of the New Year tomorrow. I have a fun set of cards to share with you today, and you may remember I did something similar last year. You can find that post HERE. These 3 cards are geared toward the new, casual, or avid paper crafters.  

This first card is made using a piece of Blushing Bride card stock that is 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, scored and folded in half. I stamped all the images in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. Simple right? Below are the products you need to complete this beginner card. If you purchase all the supplies listed, you will be able to earn the Happy Birthday To You set for FREE with your purchase.

Product List

This second card is easy too! This card has a Blushing Bride base that measures 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, scored and folded in half. I drew a few lines, 1/4″ apart on my card base with the Dark Rococo Rose Stampin’ Blend. Then I added a 2 3/8″ Whisper White Square. Taking a 2 1/8″ square of Blushing Bride, I stamped a portion of the cake image onto the card stock. I attached this to my White square, and then centered it on the card base. Below are the products I used to create this Casual Crafter Card.

My final card here is a Blushing Bride card base measuring 11″ x 4 1/4″, scored and folded in half. I ran just the front piece of the card base through my Big Shot using the Corrugated embossing folder. A piece of the Subtles DSP in Blushing Bride measuring 5 1/2″ X 1 1/2″. I stamped the cake image on Whisper White and colored it in using my Dark and Light Petal Pink, Dark and Light Rococo Rose, Dark and Light Old Olive, and Dark Daffodil Delight. Then I fussy cut the cake out using my paper snips. I used a scrap piece of Whisper White to make my greeting banner. I attached everything to the card, and put some Silver Metallic thread behind the cake before adhering with Dimensionals. Below are the products I used to create this Avid Crafter Card.
