A Little Backpack

Hi!  Today I am sharing the little treat bags I made for On Stage friends.  I had so much fun putting them together!

3D,, Backpacks, Gift Bag Punch Board, Stampin' Up!, SU!,

These little bags are made using the Gift Bag Punch board – a medium sized bag.  A little front pocket was made using the Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper.  The top flaps are a separate piece from the bag.  I didn’t snag a picture of the back, but there  are two ribbons that act as straps  for back of the little backpack.

Here is what was inside these little bags:

Backpacks, Gift Bag Punch Board, Stampin' Up!, SU!

A few little treats, post-it flags, and a mini pen.  I think everyone liked them!

Here are the dimensions for the bag:

6″ x 11″ piece of Cardstock – use the Gift Bag Punch board to make a medium bag. (Do not assemble yet)

Use the 1/8″ hole punch to punch two holes on the back of the bag above the bottom flap.

Cut two pieces of  ribbon 7″ long and knot one end.  Run these through the holes so the knot will be on the inside of the bag.

Assemble the box.

For the top flap, cut a piece of cardstock 3 1/8″ x 2 1/2″.  Score at 1 1/2″ on the 2 1/2″ side.

Punch two holes on the score line 1″ in from each end.  Use a 3″ piece of ribbon through these two holes to create the handle on the top.  Adhere ends down with Tear & Tape to the smaller section created by  the score line.

Use the gift bag punch board to just punch the two ends of the cardstock to create the flap.

Stamp your sentiment on the flap

Punch a hole in the middle of the 1″ side created by the score line for the two ribbons to fit through.

Adhere these two ends down using Tear & Tape.

Attach this 1″ section to the back of the bag to adhere the flap.

For the front pocket, cut a piece of Designer Series Paper  4″ x 2 3/4″.  Score the 4″ side at 1/4″, 1/2″, 3/4″ 3 1/4″, 3 1/2″ and 3 3/4″.  Score the 2 3/4″ side at 1/4″ , 1/2″ and 3/4″.  Cut off the two corners where the score lines intersect.  Fold score lines mountain, valley, mountain and use Mono Multi Glue to attach the three sides to the front of the bag.

For the flap, cut a piece of cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″. Score the 1 1/4″ at 3/4″.   Round the corners on the front and use Tear & Tape to attach the little flap to the front of the bag with the fold over the little pocket.

Use small pieces of Velcro to hold the two flaps down.

Don’t forget, the retirement list is out!  Items are starting to sell out – so don’t delay in getting those orders in – I’d hate for you to not get what you want!

A Few Feathers

Hi! How are you?  Today I am excited to share with you the trio of cards I made using the Feather Together stamp set from the Annual Catalog.

Masculine, Feathers, Thinking of You, Baby Wipes, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Hardwood

I just LOVE these!!  On Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live, I demonstrated how to do the Baby Wipe technique and shared how to make the first and second cards in the picture above.  After the Live Demonstration, I had some feathers that I had stamped and was trying to figure out what to do with them when I came up with the third card.  All three cards use the same basic supplies and technique – but each have a little different look to them.

If you missed my Tuesday with Teresa demonstration,  here it is:

(If you’d like to enter the drawing mentioned in the video,  hop over to my Facebook page and leave a comment on the post featuring this video.)

Here’s a closer look at each card:

Feather Together, Baby Wipe, Hardwood, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this card, the stamped feathers are attached to a Dapper Denim layer which is then scored and folded up over the bottom of the Whisper White.  I distressed the edge with my thumb nail then wrapped the Dapper Denim baker’s twine around the bottom and tied a knot.  The Smoky Slate mat is stamped with the Hardwood Stamp that was inked in Smoky Slate.  The base is Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Feather Together, Hardwood, Baby Wipe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For this one, I just mounted the stamped panel on a Dapper Denim mat and wrapped the Baker’s Twine around three times.  The Hardwood is inked in Smoky Slate and stamped on Whisper White and my base is Smoky Slate.

Feather Together, Hardwood, Baby Wipe, Stampin' Up!, SU!

For the final card, I stamped the feathers on scrap Whisper White and fussy cut them out with Paper Snips.  The Hardwood is inked in Smoky Slate and stamped on Smoky Slate.  This is layered on Dapper Denim and the base is back to the Thick Whisper White.  The sentiment is also stamped from the Baby White to give it a variegated look to match the feather.

I am sad to see this  stamp set on the retiring list!  If you love these cards as much as I do, make sure you purchase it before it is gone for good!  Shop my on-line store with Hostess Code: WZ627AK3 by April 15th and get a FREE Tutorial featuring the Hold on to Hope Bundle!

Wood Textures – A Feminine Look

Edited:  I am so sorry – this was supposed to post on Saturday while I was at On Stage – not sure what happened.  A few days late but here you go!

Hi! Today I have a feminine look for the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper.

Friend, Wood Textures, Wood Words, Flowers, Stampin' Up! SU!

I am so happy with how this card turned out.  I used the Wood Words and Perennial Birthday stamp sets for this card.  The flower collage on the Wood Texture Designer Series Paper is from Wood Words and is stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.  The sentiment is also from that stamp set and stamped in the same color ink on a Whisper White Panel.

For the single flower from the Perennial Birthday set, I used Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke markers to color directly on the stamp before stamping on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.  I then colored in the flower with the Blushing Bride marker and the leaves with Pear Pizzazz.  This was punched out with a 1 3/8″ circle punch and layered on a 1 1/2″ Basic Black circle.

The base is Thick Whisper White card stock cut at 4 1/4 x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ and folded.  A piece of Cherry Cobbler measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″ is adhered on top of this.  The Wood Textures paper measures 3 3/4″ x 5″.   The sentiment is stamped on  a piece of Whisper White that is 5/8″ x 3 3/4″ and is mounted on a piece of Basic Black that measures 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.

For a little more flare, I wrapped Linen Thread around my hand three times, twisted in the center to make a figure 8 and then adhered to the back of the Basic Black circle before attaching the flower with dimensionals to the base.

I did demonstrate how to make this card in Tuesday, April 3rd, Tuesday with Teresa – Wood Textures and Wood Words – live Facebook Demonstration.  You can watch it here.

Shop my on-line store to get the Hold on To Hope tutorial FREE through April 15th!  Hostess Code: WZ627AK3

I am heading off to OnStage in Hartford, CT!  So excited to see what is coming in the next catalog and what favorites will be retiring.  I’ll start sharing some information on Monday afternoon once we are allowed!

Wood Textures- A Masculine Look

Hi! Today I have a card for you featuring the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper stack.  I LOVE this pack of paper – and find it works for all kinds of cards.  Today I have a masculine card for you.

Wood Textures, Masculine, Birthday, Stampin' Up!, SU!

If you have quite a few Designer Series scraps, this is a great layout to use some of those up!  I created a block layout using 4 different patterns from the stack.  Here are the measurements for each:

  • Upper left -3″ x 2 1/4″
  • Lower left – 3″ x 1 1/2″
  • Upper right – 2″ x 1 3/4″
  • Lower right – 2″ x 2″

These are mounted on a piece of Early Espresso card stock measuring 5 1/4″ x 4″.

I die cut Happy Birthday in both Early Espresso and Whisper White.  I love the “shadow” look obtained by adhering the Whisper White just a little over to the right of the Early Espresso die cut.  The finishing touch is a button from the True Gentleman suite with a small piece of linen thread tied through the holes.

The base of the card is Whisper White thick card stock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″and scored at 4 1/4″.

I demonstrated how to make this card on this past Tuesday’s session of Tuesday’s with Teresa on my Facebook page.  Look for the video marked – Tuesday’s with Teresa – Wood Texture & Wood Words.

I’ll be back with a different look for the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper in a day or so.

In the meantime, don’t forget that the 2016-2018 In Colors will be retiring soon!  Once the retirement list comes out, these products tend to sell out quickly.  Avoid the rush, and place your order today in my On-Line Store!  Use Hostess Code: WZ627AK3 for orders less than $150 and get a FREE little something from me!

It’s All About Love

Hi!  Welcome to the March International Project Highlight Winner’s Blog Hop!  Thank you so much for voting for me in March’s Highlight!  I made the Top 10 and am able to participate in this month’s Blog Hop!

Our theme is Love and here is the card I made for today:

Anniversary, Love, Garden Trellis, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Sweet & Sassy, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #internatiionalprojecthighlights

Since my winning card was for a wedding, I decided to continue on to an Anniversary!  I wanted warm colors for this card – so used Very Vanilla for the base – 4 1/4 x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″  and the embossed panel.  The embossing is done with the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder and the panel measures 4 x 5 1/4″.

Linen thread is wrapped around the panel.  The hearts are die cut with the Sweet and Sassy Framelits and the edges are sponged with Blushing Bride ink.  A few little pearls are placed along the edge of the heart.

The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes – a must have in anyone’s collection – and is stamped in Blushing Bride ink.  This is punched out with the Classic Label punch.   It is layered on a Crumb Cake Classic Label punch that was cut in half and attached to the back to provide the edging at the end.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.  Make sure you hop over to check out the rest of the winner’s posts!

Sand & Shells

Hi! Today I am continuing with my masked background shown last week – this time featuring the So Many Shells set.

Friendship, Shells, Beach, So Many Shells, Stampin' Up!, SU! Masking

For this card, I created a rectangular mask with the Stampin’ Trimmer.  The mask measured  3 3/4″ x 5″ and I measured in 3/4″ on the sides and 1″ in for the top and bottom.  The background was created by sponging Sahara Sand in the lower left corner followed by Soft Sky and ending with Marina Mist.

The shells are stamped with Crumb Cake for the more detailed shell and Blushing Bride for the 2nd step.  Wink of Stella Clear Glitter pen was used to color over the shells to give them a little sparkle.  The sentiment is stamped in Crumb Cake ink.

I do love this technique – and wanted to show it could be used for any type of card.  I hope you give it a try!

Make sure you stop back tomorrow – I’ll be hopping with the Top 10 from March’s International Project Highlights!  So excited!

Flowers and Sunset

Hi! Today I have a card that I demonstrated on this past Tuesday’s with Teresa Facebook Live.  The theme was masking using Die Cuts.

Flowers, Thinking of You, Wild About Flowers, Masking, Die Cuts, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I created a mask using an Oval Framelit and a piece of the white cardboard that is in the back of the Designer Series Packs of paper.  Then I lay that over my Whisper White cardstock and sponged my background using Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive ink pads.

The flowers are from Wild About Flowers and stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink.   The sentiment is from Heartfelt Blooms which is a Sale-A-Bration set which you can earn FREE by shopping in my on-line store.  But hurry!  This special ends March 31st and the set will no longer be available!

  • Thick Whisper White Base – 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″

Go For Greece Training Group Blog Hop

Hi! Today I am playing along in the Go For Greece Training Group Blog Hop!  I joined this group this year to work on building my business and earn a trip to GREECE!!  I still have a long way to go to earn the trip, but through sales, recruiting and team building, I am making some head way.

For today’s card, I am showcasing the Eclectic Expressions Sale-A-Bration stamp set.

Dragonfly, Thank You, Circles, Eclectic Expressions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, 2018SAB

I just LOVE this card – from the color combination to the layout – it is one of my favorites that I created for last Friday’s Sale-A-Bration Gone Wild class.  For colors, I paired Fresh Fig, Rose Red and Smoky Slate.  The stamps in this set are so versatile and can be used for all kinds of cards for young ones, old ones, males and females.  I great set to have in your collection!

The stamped panel measures 3 3/4″ x 5″ and is layered on a Fresh Fig card stock layer measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The base is Smoky Slate, measuring 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ on the 8 1/2″ side.

The Dragonfly is die-cut using the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlets from Basic Black card stock.  He is then covered in Clear Wink of Stella for a sparkly look.  Here is close up of him:

Dragonfly, Eclectic Expressions, Glitter, Thank You, 2018SAB, Stampin' Up!, SU

So pretty!!! The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on a scrap of Whisper White card stock and the end is punched with the Triple Banner punch.  This is layered on a piece of Fresh Fig card stock also punched with the Triple Banner Punch.  I found it easier to punch my Whisper White sentiment panel first and then use that as a guide for punching the Fresh Fig layer.

Blossoming Basket

Hi!  How are you today?  I hope doing well!  First, I want to say THANK YOU!! to all those that voted for my Wedding Wishes card for Kylie’s International Blog Highlights.  I made the Top 10!!  I’ll be hopping with the rest of the Top 10 in the beginning of April – so stay tuned!

On to today’s card.  This card features the Blossoming Basket Bundle that is FREE with a $100 (US, prior to S/H and tax) purchase during Sale-A-Bration.  We are down to our FINAL week – so hurry and get those orders placed so you don’t miss out on FREE goodies!

Mother's Day, Flowers, Blossoming Basket, 2018SAB, Stampin' Up!, SU!

This would make a beautiful Mother’s Day card.  Went a little different by stamping my basket on Crumb Cake card  stock and just coloring the flowers and leaves.  I used the Berry Burst and Powder Pink 2017-2019 In Color markers for the Flowers and Old Olive for the leaves.  The basket and sentiment were stamped in Basic Black Archival ink.

The Basket Weave Embossing Folder was used on Whisper White card stock for the background.  The stamp set and embossing folder are bundled together in this FREE product choice.

I did use retired baker’s twine for an accent behind the stamped panel – but Basic Black twine which is current would look just as pretty.

I added a pearl to my sentiment panel and used the Triple Banner Punch to add interest to the opposite end.

The base  of the card is Crumb Cake and a layer of Berry Burst card stock is adhered on top of that.  A relatively straight forward card with just a few special touches for that someone special.

Just a few reminders – now is a great time to stock up on the 2016-2018 In Colors as they will be retiring at the end of May and if you stock up now, you also get to take advantage of Sale-A-Bration!

Petal Palette Clean & Simple

Hi!  How are you?  I hope you are doing well!  Sorry for not posting for a few days – ended up out of town for a business trip and wasn’t able to get a post written before I left.

Today I have a clean and simple card featuring the Petal Palette stamp set in the Occasions Catalog.

Thank You, Thanks, Petal Palette, Stampni' Up!, SU!, 2018Occasions

I love the clean look of this card!  I typically struggle with CAS (Clean and Simple) cards, but am very happy with how this one turned out.  The flowers are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Stampin’ Blends.  The leaves are colored with the Old Olive Duo Pack and the flowers with Pink Pirouette and Cherry Cobbler Dark Blends.  I love that you can see just a hint of the Pink Pirouette in the flower petals.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark on Basic Black cardstock and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder.  I used a small scrap of Berry Burst card stock punched with the Ribbon punch to tuck underneath.  A few Rose Red Regal Enamel shapes to accent the sentiment and there you have it.

For the layers, Thick Whisper White is used for the base and is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″.  A Basic Black layer 5 1/4″ x 4″ is adhered to the base while the stamped  panel is Whisper White cardstock measuring 5″ x 3 3/4″.

An easy enough card to mass produce if you are in need of quite a few.   Change out the sentiment to make it a Birthday or Congratulations card!

There are just 10 more days to go before Sale-A-Bration ends!  Do NOT miss out on getting your FREE goodies!!  A $50 (US, prior to S/H and tax) order earns you a FREE product from either Sale-A-Bration brochure shown on the right or from the flier posted above.  A $250 order (or gather a few orders from friends) earns you Sale-A-Bration products as well an additional $25 (for a total of $50) in FREE merchandise of your choice!  Is your wish list really long?  Then JOIN my team!  You choose $125 in Stampin’ Up! products for just $99 plus tax and then add on 2 Stamp Sets FREE!!
