A Card in a Flash

Hi! Today I have a quick card and a quick tip when you need a Card in a Flash!

What’s a Card in a Flash?  A card that you can make in 10 minutes or less! Over the World Card Making Day weekend, I challenged my followers to create a card in 10 minutes or less.   Here’s the card I created:

Fall, Card in a Flash, Rooted in Nature, Nature's Poem, Stampin' Up!, SU!

In case you haven’t seen by previous posts, but I truly love fall.  The Rooted in Nature suite is perfect for fall (and truly, for all seasons!)  This card pairs the Nature’s Poem Designer Series Paper with the Die Cut framelits and a sentiment.  Quick to put together and still so pretty!

Quick Tip:  When you need a card quickly – check out our suites!  They contain all the coordinating products you need to make quick and beautiful cards.  Designer Series Paper paired with a sentiment, die cut and embellishment goes together quickly.

My color palette for this card is Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze and Whisper White.

SPECIAL OFFER!!  I am offering a tutorial and consumable supplies (no inks or adhesives) for 4 cards made with the Rooted In Nature Bundle to those who purchase the bundle through my on-line store by October 19.   To participate, simply purchase your bundle here using Host Code: T6TV6DZE   Tutorial and supplies will be mailed by October 30th.

Breathe in Fall

Hi!  Today I have a card for you that I demonstrated at last week’s Tuesday with Teresa.  I had a hard time coming up with a focal image prior to going live that night – but finally came up with this card:

Fall, Rooted in Nature, Direct to Paper, FB Live, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I used the direct to paper technique to create my background.  Then used markers to color the tree on the stamp before stamping on my paper.  I am very happy with the outcome.  I may add some birds in the sky – it was suggested during the live and I do like the idea.

Here’s the video if you wish to see how I made the card:

I’d love to know what you think!

Trick-or-Treat Halloween Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It Halloween Blog Hop!  You are sure to find tons of inspiration for Halloween Fright!

My project today is this adorable mini milk carton!

Halloween, Treat Holder, Mini Milk Carton, Stampin' Up!, SU! #stampitbloghop

Isn’t it adorable?  I love the Toil and Trouble Designer Series Paper – perfect for all your Halloween crafting!  In this project, I’ve paired the paper with the Seasonal Chums set in the Annual Catalog – don’t you love when you can use new products with existing ones already in your collection?

To make the Mini Milk Carton, you need a 5 1/2″ x 8 1/4″ piece of cardstock or Designer Series Paper.

  • Score on the 8 1/4″ side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″.
  • Score on the 5 1/2″ side at 1 1/2″, 3 1/2″ and 5″.
  • Along the 5″ score line, make a tick mark at 1″ and 5″ along the 8 1/4″ side.
  • Use a ruler and a stylus to score diagonal lines between the 5″ and 3 1/2″ score lines from the 1″ tick mark to the lower left corner at the 3 1/2″ score line and the lower right corner at the 3 1/2″ score line.
  • Repeat above step for the 5″ tick mark.    See picture for clarity: (Dotted lines are score lines, solid lines are cut lines)

  • Cut off the lower right corner that is 1/4″ by 1 1/2″.  (Already removed in picture)
  • Create angle cuts on the top and bottom of the remaining part of the tab.
  • Cut up from the bottom to the 1 1/2″ score line at 2″, 4″ and 6″.
  • Fold on all score lines.
  • Place Tear & Tape along the tab and close the box.
  • Use Tear & Tape to seal the bottom.
  • Decorate as desired and use Baker’s Twine, Linen Thread or a Galvanized Clip to close the top of the box.

For the decorations, I used the pumpkins from Seasonal Chums.  It is stamped in Jet Black StaZon on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.  The stem is colored in Crumb Cake, the leaves in Old Olive and the face in Basic Black.

Here’s a closer view of the front and back:

Halloween, Treat Holders, Mini Milk Carton, Seasonal Chums, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghop     Halloween, Treat Holders, Mini Milk Carton, Seasonal Chums, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghop

On the sides, I die cut bats using the coordinating Seasonal Tag Framelits from Basic Black card stock and colored with Clear Wink of Stella:

Halloween, Seasonal Chums, Mini Milk Carton, Treat Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #stampitbloghopI used one of the new Galvanized Clips to keep the top closed after filling with Halloween Treats such as Dove Milk Chocolate Caramels and Reese’s Peanutbutter Ghosts.   The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black ink on Crushed Curry cardstock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  Black solid Baker’s Twine ties the tag to the clip.

I just love how this turned out and will be making a few more to give out to family, friends and co-workers.

Toil & Trouble

Fun with the Cauldron Bubble bundle and Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper!

Halloween Treats, Cauldron Bubble, Toil & Trouble DSP, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This past week’s Tuesday with Teresa Facebook Live featured the Cauldron Bubble bundle and coordinating Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper to make these fun Diaper Fold treat pouches!

To make the holder, you need a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper!  And then you can embellish any way you choose!  I used the coordinating Cauldron Bubble Stamp set and dies to make these.  Did you know, the dies cut some of the images perfectly from the Designer Series Paper as well as the stamped images?  How cool is that!

Here’s the video showcasing this fold:

Fun With Paper Pumpkin

Hi!  Today I have an alternative project for the July 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit!  Thanks to Nancy for the idea that you’ll find here.

I love how these turned out!

Paper Pumpkin, July 2018, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The kit makes 3×3 note cards – which are very cute – but I don’t typically use that size, so I took my supplies and am making Post-It Note holders that would be sure to brighten anyone’s desk!

Here are the directions:

  • Base:  Cut a piece of cardstock 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and score at 2″, 4″ and 4 1/2″
  • Easel Front: Piece of Whisper White cardstock 3 1/2″ x 4″
  • Plaid backgrounds – Cut the tissue paper from the kit 3 1/2″ x 4″ – need 2
  • Cut the 3×3 note cards in half (need 1 per holder)

Fold on all score lines for the base.  Use one of the plaid pieces and attach to the inside (where there are no folds).  Attach the second plaid piece to the 3 1/2″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.   Attach this piece to the bottom only of the front of the base (the 3 1/2″ x 2″ fold section)  It is easiest to apply your adhesive to the front flap of the base so that you do not go above the score line.

Here is a side view of the holder so you can see how the easel looks and how the plaid panel is attached  at just the bottom:

July2018PP, Paper Pumpkin, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Post-It Note Holders

Use Tear and Tape and to adhere the 3″ x 3″ sticky pad to the inside of the base.

Stamp the border from the Paper Pumpkin stamp set in Soft Suede ink around all 4 sides of the Crumb Cake piece.  Adhere one of the Vellum plaid pieces to the top.  Adhere the fruit and leaf die-cuts.  Wrap ribbon around the panel.  Stamp a sentiment in Soft Suede ink to one of the Whisper White labels in the kit.  Attach with dimensionals.   Attach this entire panel to the plaid front piece using dimensionals.

Here is a front view:

Inky the Octopus

Hi!  Back today with the card that was demonstrated this past week on Tuesday with Teresa – my weekly Facebook Live demonstration.  This one features the Sea of Textures stamp set:

Octopus, Sea of Texture, Stampin' Up!, Masking

I used my big Post-It Notes to mask off the top and bottom of my Whisper White layer and sponge just the center with Mint Macaron and Coastal Cabana ink.  The seaweed and coral were stamped in Tranquil Tide ink.

The octopus is stamped in Blackberry Bliss ink and die cut with the coordinating framelit.  He is attached to the card using dimensionals.  A quick and cute card for your Saturday morning.

Throw Back Thursday – Halloween Style

Hi!  Today I am showcasing a treat pouch made using some retired Halloween Products.  I am working on some goodies for a craft fair and decided it would be good to use up some retired Designer Series Paper I had laying around.

Diaper Fold, Halloween Treat Pouch, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up! SU!

These little guys are from the Cookie Cutter Halloween Set from a year or two ago.  I loved this set – they are just adorable.  The diaper fold pouch uses a 6×6 piece of Designer Series Paper and is pretty easy to put together.  These little guys will hold a mini candy bar – perfect for giving coworkers, friends and neighbors.

Here’s a closer look:

Cookie Cutter Halloween, Stampin' Up!, Treat Pouch

I hope you enjoyed today’s little Throwback post.
