A Little Treat

Hi! Welcome to the Team Stamp It September Blog Hop!   This month we are featuring Halloween projects!  I am excited to share this little treat with you featuring products from the August-Dec Mini Catalog.

Halloween, Treat Holders, Magin In the Night, Little Treat Box, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AugDecMini

I know, you were probably expecting a candy holder, but I decided to go with something a little different.  I’ll still be packaging up candy for the little ones, but thought some of my friends would appreciate these.

We’ll start with the Chapstick holder – this is a take on the one shown in August-December Mini Catalog on page 52.   Since I didn’t have the Magic in the Night bundle, I changed it up a bit.  My die cut is made using Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  The Designer Series Paper is Magic in the Night.  I only made one slit in the middle to hold the Chapstick since my die is a bit smaller than the one used in the catalog.  The sentiment, tag and spider come from the Little Treats Bundle in the August-December Catalog.  I used Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry Markers to color the sentiment.  I did use the 1 1/2″ Mesh Ribbon to tie around the Chapstick – I love this ribbon – so fun and perfect for that spidery web.  For the tag, tho, I went with the 3/8″ Glittered Organdy ribbon from the Annual Catalog.

Now, what is hiding inside the box on the left?  Well, let’s open it and see!

Halloween, Magic in the Night, Treat Holder, PocketBac Holder, Stampin' Up!, SU! #stampithalloweenhop, #2020AugDecMini

Yes, tucked inside is a Pocket Bac hand sanitizer!  How cute is this?  And, let me tell you, very easy to make.

The box is Rich Razzleberry measuring 2 1/4″ by 10 1/2″.  Score on the 10 1/2″ side at 2″, 3″, 6″, 7″, 9″ and 10″.  Using the smallest Oval in the Stitched Shapes die set, cut a hole in between the 9″ and 10″ score lines.

It should look like this:

PocketBac Template

Fold on all the score lines with a bone folder to get crisp edges and then lay flat.  Fold up on the 10″ score line (so it is covering part of the oval) and place a piece of Tear and Tape on this 1/2″ edge.  Keeping this edge folded, fold up on the 7″ score line and adhere the tab to the back of the box.  That’s all there is to it.  Decorate the front as desired.  You’ll  slide the PocketBac in through the side and pop the top of it through the Oval.  The two pieces of Designer Series paper covering the top and bottom measure 2″ x 1 3/4″.  I used the same spider, tag and ribbon from the Chapstick to decorate the box.  The tag is  attached by placing dimensionals on the bottom of the box right below the lid – allowing you to tuck the lid behind the tag to keep it closed.

What do you think?  I hope my friends like them!

Beautiful Journey

Hi!  Today I have a quick card using the World of Good Suite from the Annual Catalog.

Journey, Masculine, World Of Good, Stampin' Up!, SU!

The World of Good Specialty Designer Series Paper is paired with the Old World Paper Embossing Folder to create the background for this card.  I love the dimension the embossing folder gives to our Whisper White Cardstock.

The sentiment is stamped in Misty Moonlight ink and die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly dies.  The ink bottle is stamped in Jet Black StaZon and the feather in Crumb Cake.  Both are die cut with the coordinating die set.

The base is Early Espresso.

This is a great set for those masculine cards we sometimes struggle with.

Don’t forget, the new Standard Stampin’ Cut and Emboss has made its debut in my on-line store:

Life is Better

Hi!  Today I have a card to share with you featuring the Beautiful Autumn Bundle!

Beautiful Autumn, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AugDecMini

I love the colors for this card – Misty Moonlight and Just Jade.  Two of my favorite of the new 2020-2022 In Colors.  You also catch a glimpse of Magenta Madness and Bumble Bee.   It is always fun to change up the traditional fall colors for a different look.

Another sweet touch is the use of White Embossing powder on the Misty Moonlight background.  I do not always think to emboss my sentiments on dark colored cardstock, and I love the look – so time to do that a little more often.

And do you see the scallop under the Whisper White panel?  Those are punched circles cut in half!  Great way to get the look if you don’t have a scallop border punch or die.

I hope you’ll consider looking at your Fall stamps and changing them up with a non-fall color palette.

Thanks for stopping by!

Do You Love Fall?

I do!!  (I’m sure you know that by now!).  Anyway, today I have two cards for you – though they are made together using the 2 for 1, or Split Card or ….  not really sure what it is called …  technique.

Fall, Hello, Friendship, Forever Fern, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2for1, Split Card, #2020AnnualCatalog

I had seen this technique a while ago but didn’t have a chance to try it out until a few weeks ago when getting ready for my Facebook Live.  The gist of the technique, take a larger sheet of cardstock – for this I used 6 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ sheet of Whisper White – then stamp up the middle.  Cut the card in half at 3 1/4″ and you have 2 card fronts!

I decided to do this with the Emboss Resist technique – so I stamped the leaves from the Forever Fern bundle in Versamark and Embossed with Whisper White Embossing powder.  I then sponged Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze inks – wiping off the ink over the embossed leaves after each color.  The final step was to stamp the flowers, smaller leaves and splatter stamps in Cajun Craze, Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.   The sentiments are stamped in Cajun Craze.

Emboss Resist, Fall, Friendship, SplitCard, 2for1, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

I matted the stamped panels on Early Espresso measuring 3 3/8″ x 4 5/8″.  I tied Early Espresso Faux Suede Ribbon and Copper Ribbon together around this layer.

The Cajun Craze mat layer is embossed using the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  The base is Thick Whisper White Card Stock measuring 4 1/4 x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded in half.

I love how these cards turned out!  If you are looking for a quick technique for mass producing, try this 2-For-1 layout – you can just use stamps and inks – no need to Emboss Resist if time is an issue.

Here’s a look at the second card:

Emboss Resist, 2for1, SplitCard, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Forever Fern, Hello, Friendship, #2020AnnualCatalog

Here’s a video showing how the cards were made:

I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Boo!

Hi!  Was having some fun with my little owl in the tree and the angle cut DSP technique to come up with this card:

Have a Hoot, Halloween, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AugDecMini

The Magic In the Night Designer Series Paper makes a great background for this owl who is spooked by the spider.  Easy and cute Halloween card if you are looking to mass produce.  The Stitched Shapes and Layering Oval dies are used to highlight the owl.

The main image is stamped with Memento Ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends markers.

The base is Rich Razzleberry cardstock.

If you haven’t checked out the Easy Cut corner Designer Series Paper technique, you’ll find it showcased in this post.

You Make the World

Hi!  Today I am excited to be participating in Kylie’s International Blog Highlights!  Our theme this month is THANK YOU!   I loved this sentiment from the Beautiful World and thought I don’t appreciate the men in my life enough – so here is a card to do so.

I started with the new Cinnamon Cider In Color for the base of my card stock.  This is a very warm color  and thought it fitting for the card.   The base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 1 1/4″ and 4 1/4″ along the 8 1/2″ side.  The card is folded in the middle at 4 1/4″.   Fold back on the front panel on the 1 1/4″ score line.

I used the World of Good Specialty Designer Paper for my three strips.  The first strip is 1 1/2″ x 5 1/4″, the green strip is 1″ x 5 1/4″ and the Black and Gold grid is 1″ x 5 1/4″.

The sentiment is stamped on Whisper White cardstock in Cinnamon Cider ink and die cut using the Stitched Shapes dies.  This is layerd on a Basic Black square.  This is adhered to the folded front flap so it hangs over the edge of the flap.

The world is die cut using Crumb Cake, Mossy Meadow and Early Espresso cardstock.  It is attached to the front with dimensionals.

To see how I made the card, it is the second one in this video:

Country Charm

Hi!  I’m back today with a card featuring the Country Home Stamp Set.  I love this set – it has such a charming feel to it.

Hello, Friendship, Country Home, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020AnnualCatalog

For my colors, I went with Flirty Flamingo and Basic Gray.  The milk jug was stamped on a piece of Designer Series Paper from the In Good Taste pack then fussy cut with scissors.  The flowers were stamped with Jet Black StaZon ink and colored with Watercolor Pencils on the Whisper White layer.  The jug was then adhered to the Whisper White layer.  This is matted on Basic Gray cardstock.

For the background, I inked the Tin Tile Embossing Folder with Flirty Flamingo ink then placed a piece of Whisper White cardstock in the folder.  This is then run through the new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss machine.

The card base is Basic Gray – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″ then folded in half.  A piece of Flirty Flamingo is used as a mat for the Tin Tile embossed strip and piece of Whisper White.  The main stamped image is adhered using dimensionals.

With fall right around the corner, this is a perfect card to send a friend or family member to say Hello.

As mentioned above, the new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss – standard size – is now available in my On-line store.  If you are looking for a new die cut machine or for your first check it out!
