Stampin' Addicts Stop 13 - Vintage Frames

8.27.2010

Time for the Stampin' Addicts Holiday Mini Catalog Blog Hop! Woo hoo! If you are arriving from SA or from Kim's site, welcome! I'll be sharing some projects with you, then providing a link to the next stop on the hop. In total, you have 22 sites to enjoy for inspiration and we'll leave our posts up all weekend so that you have plenty of time to see it all. What fun!

My projects today were created using the new Vintage Frames Decor Stencils (page 22). Prior to these projects, I've always used stencils to decorate walls or fabric. This time, however, I thought it would be fun to use the stencil on paper-crafted items, instead. Special Note: this stencil is large! The entire sheet measures 13" x 17" and contains three separate designs. You'll be happy to know that there is enough separation between the designs that you do not have to worry about inadvertently getting paint in an adjoining area.

My first project uses one of the corner designs to embellish a 12x12 scrapbook page. A Sponge Dauber dabbed into Classic Ink brings this design to life. Pearls add just a bit of elegance to a page dedicated to a special Mother's Day event.

Stencils can also help you to make your own patterned paper. Another sponge dauber, this one dipped into Pretty In Pink Classic Ink, adds detail using the other corner design. I used just one "leg" of the design to add a series of lines across the paper.


And lastly, decor for the home. Instead of decorating the wall, decorate something for the wall (or table)!
Use Craft Ink to stencil the center design repeatedly onto a stretched and prepared canvas. Be sure to set it aside to dry so that you don't smudge the ink as it dries. Consider adding words that describe your family, your faith and/or your life to the open areas.


Thank you for stopping by on the blog hop. I hope Kim and I have encouraged you to give our stencils a try; you'll be surprised at how easy they are to use! Next you're off to Carmen's blog - wait 'til you see what she has in store for you!

Just Believe and Vintage Vogue

8.26.2010

A card by Tina Dyke inspired me to make this card. The layout is simple, but the finished product is an example of how cards don't have to be complicated to be pretty.


After stamping and heat embossing the vine image with clear embossing powder, rub Stampin' Pastels over the embossed image. Not only will your image pop, but you will give your card a nice soft feel.

Use card stock and Classic Ink in the same color to finish your card. Since all of our products are manufactured to coordinate with each other, you'll see that the chalks match the ink match the card stock. Don't they make it easy for us?
For a little variety, make each card of your set with a different color scheme. Use random colors from different color groups or consider choosing different colors from within the same color group to save on supplies.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to stop by tomorrow for the Stampin' Addicts blog hop. We'll be showcasing new products from the Holiday Mini catalog - you won't want to miss all of the fabulous ideas shared!

Time to play? Make the most of limited time

8.24.2010

If you are ever short on time, but want to fit in a little crafting, consider working on one element of your card. For example, stamp a few images in waterproof ink to have on hand. Spend a little time coloring in one or more of your images. Then, the next time you need to put a card together quickly you'll have at least one image ready to go.

The images shown here are from our Greeting Card Kids stamp set. The retro feel is fun and there are 4 images for different seasons. Their size allows them to work on tags, too!

Simply Said and After Thoughts

8.21.2010

Sounds like a complicated conversation, doesn't it? But no, it's just a silly title for 2 cards created based on our Utah Divas sketch today! (Sketch)
I'm just one stop on the blog hop; to access a blog-roll of participants, please click here to be directed to the UDI site. Otherwise, read on and I'll provide the link to the next stop along the hop.


Card one is all about stamping. Using a background stamp is a great way to decorate the background of a card.  Try adding more than one ink color to your stamp to add a bit of variety to your image. Crumb Cake and Soft Suede Classic ink were used here, but you could also try contrasting colors for a different, more vibrant look.
I stamped the one large image, then cut it apart into 4 separate panels. Each panel was then sponged with Crumb Cake ink to finish the edges. When you try this, you'll notice that the sponging will also make other areas of the image pop - a very nice side effect!

Ok, so this card has a very classic look. But what do you do when you want something a little more fun? You add color!

A lot of color! This card began with cutting apart some  of our Sweet & Sour Designer Series Paper.  The paper had enough going on that it didn't take much to finish the card. A stamped sentiment, layered over coordinating card stock and a butterfly to finish off the center panel. And of course, bling. If it's going to be fun, it has to have bling ;)


If you would like to see either of the cards in better detail, you should be able to click on them and they will enlarge.  By the way, the punch you see used here behind the sentiments is a new offering from our Holiday Mini catalog. It has a great size - can't wait to see what can be done with it!

Introducing Designer Series Fabric!

8.17.2010

That's right... FABRIC!  There are so many ways a crafter can use fabric; yes, even a paper-crafter.  Here's just one project we'll be working on in my next special projects class (September 19th). Stay tuned for more ideas.

Keep in mind that this fabric is just one of the fabulous things-to-see in our upcoming Holiday Mini catalog. Like our Idea Book & Catalog, the Mini is filled with wonderful project ideas as well as great seasonal supplies.
Note: If you are already one of my current customers, you should receive your copy within the next week or so. If you are not on my list and would like to receive a copy, let me know! I'll be happy to either send one in the mail or send a pdf file to your e-mail.

Wild Wasabi meets Sunny Garden

8.16.2010

Yesterday brought fun with friends! In class, we each created this easy but wonderful drawer box. Each person received Designer Series Paper and card stock in their favorite color to help them personalize their box. The one shared here today was created for my friend Carol.

Carol was happy to see Wild Wasabi return as one of our core colors so I'm hoping she'll love this box with it's Wild Wasabi base. Our Sunny Garden Designer Series Paper coordinates with it nicely and has a happy feel to it. Do you recognize the print? This same print was used with other colors and was available in our previous catalog as Cottage Wall.

Finishing off the drawer and the embellishment on top are 2 of our Antique Brads. They have beautiful designs with fabulous texture and while they are definitely not suitable for a card you'll mail standard, they will add panache to anything you'll hand deliver (or box up).


Check back tomorrow to see what we'll be working on next month. Hint: it contains a preview of merchandise available in our Holiday Mini catalog!

Stampin' Up! Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper and a sketch

8.14.2010

It's Saturday! Phew - we made it!

If you are looking for an easy sketch to inspire your card-making this weekend, then you've come to the right place. I'm just one stop on the Utah Divas Int'l sketch hop. We're all linked together within our posts, but if you get a lost or a link doesn't want to work, you can check the UDI blog for the complete list of participants. If you've landed here from Carol's blog - Welcome! I don't have chocolate for you, but I do have a card to share ;)

Sketches like today's allow a lot of room for images or for that pretty decorative paper you have stashed. (It's time to use it!) This gorgeous print from our Greenhouse Gala Designer Series Paper serves as our background and as our focal image. The Daffodil Delight print is on one side of the paper, the floral image is on the other.

Cutting a second flower and adhering it directly over the first (with Stampin' Dimensionals) gives our main image some POP and helps the card come together with little fuss. A sentiment would also work on this card, but a monogram "M" lets me personalize it for the recipient. Lastly, some pearl stickers add a little extra something special and, because they are already mounted on a line of adhesive, they just peel and stick into place.

Well, thank you for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my take on the sketch. And now, we're off to Australia to see what beautiful creation Alisa has in store for us today. Enjoy!

Quick projects using Stampin' Up! Morning Cup

8.12.2010

 Did you know that more Americans make resolutions at this time of year than in January? If you have school aged kids, this probably makes sense to you. They're headed back to the classroom and you can once again concentrate on your tasks and goals. Many of us decide it's time to put some structure back in the day to allow time for necessary work and time for leisure.

If you are like me, I always look forward to time with friends. Time to sit and chat, catch up and help keep each other motivated and joyful. And the best ways to do that always seems to involve food and a beverage! As paper-crafters, how about if we add a little decoration to this fun time? Here are some ideas to help you make your friends feel even more special as you spend time together:


Keep stamping even after you've made an invitation. A small alphabet set, like the Rough Type used here, helps to personalize small signs. Use scraps to create small tent-fold cards; add a stamped image and information about the snack or beverage you are sharing. That way, your friends will know which flavor of tea you've made for them, what kind of muffin you've plated, or which pot of coffee contains their favorite kind.

Always know which cup belongs to whom with a simple tag. Stamp your image and punch out with a circle punch. Back this piece with a larger punched circle of colored card stock and then add an eyelet. Colorful ribbon adds a girlie twist and ties the tag to the mug. Another way to personalize these tags would be to add a monogram instead. How special would you feel to find a tag made just for you?

See how simple it can be? Simple but special! Enjoy!

Mini Tote Tutorial

8.09.2010


I've had a couple of requests for more information on the mini-tote shared during the Stampin' Addicts blog hop. It's my pleasure to share this quick and easy treat with you. Sized perfectly for a variety of goodies, it's a great gift holder for anyone you want to bless and also works well on a desktop! You'll love how easy it is to make!

Materials:
Big Shot
Box #2 Bigz XL Die
12x12 card stock, cut to (2) 6"x12"

STEP 1:
Die-cut 2 boxes using the Big Shot and the Box #2 Die.

Note:  This Bigz die will cut the shape of your box and create score lines for your folds at the same time. Even though the machine can handle it, DO NOT place both pieces of paper on the plate (to cut them at the same time). Doing so will cause the machine to press too firmly on the score lines and may cause them to cut through in some areas.

STEP 2:

Press all of the folds with a bone folder and assemble your boxes. Leave the box lid (the flap) open. (In the photo they are standing straight up.) Place adhesive on the back of the box portion as well as along the edges of the flap. Place the boxes back-to-back and adhere.






STEP 3:
Using a small oval punch, punch through the top flap to create a handle.

Your box is now ready to decorate! Consider using remnants from the die cut paper to create a belly band around your box (as on the samples above) or use ribbon instead. Aside from being decorative, this will also help to strengthen the sides of the tote.

Now, as helpful as this will be for future gift-giving consider making one for yourself, as well. Crafters will find them handy for small things you use on a regular basis.


For example: here's one I keep on my work table to hold scraps of Whisper White, Very Vanilla and watercolor paper. Having these handy helps to keep from cutting into a fresh sheet when I simply need to stamp a sentiment or small image. It's also a handy place to keep half sheets of Stampin' Dimensionals, another high-use item.

I hope that you find this tote useful. If there's something else you would like to see, let me know and I'll do my best to share it here. Thanks for stopping by!




Stampin' Supplies: (Basic supplies needed to create this tote)
Tools: Big Shot (113439), Box #2 die (114518), 1-3/8" x 5/8" oval punch (119863)

Do you dare to dream?

8.07.2010


Hello and welcome to another Saturday! We're up to sketch challenge number 95 with Utah Divas International, shown here (left). It's an interesting sketch and it will be fun to see how each Diva interprets the layout. As always, click the link above to see the group blog or read on below for a link to the next blog.

"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it:
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it."
Goethe
And speaking of boldness and magic, have you tried our Smooch Spray yet? The quote stamped here is sprayed with the Log Cabin spray giving it color and sparkle! One tip: protect your work surface and make sure you know which way the spray nozzle is turned... I now have a nice speckled section on my work table! I don't mind, but it may not be the look you're going for!

Does your Morning Cup help you perk up?

8.06.2010

 Do you need that Morning Cup to get you moving? If so, this card's for you!

It reads, "A morning without coffee... is like sleep". Funny... and often true! And this sentiment will be even more true for those of us who have enjoyed sleeping in this summer. In our area, the kids are headed back to school on Monday so it's back to the usual early morning routine. With that in mind - the inside is stamped with another sentiment from this stamp set, "Perk Up!"

If you are more into tea than coffee, don't feel neglected! This set also includes images of a tea pot, bag, sentiment and two different tea cup images. And as a line-art style stamp set, the images are ready for you to color and match your favorite cup, not matter what's in it!

Thank you for stopping by! Before you go, here's a look at the entire set. Enlarging the image made it blurry, so for a better look, click here.)

Fabulous NEW Block Storage

8.03.2010

 Check out our new solution for storing your Clear-Mount blocks! When I saw this in the catalog, I just knew it would be at the top of my wish-list. I'd like to keep my blocks in a handy place and also keep them as scratch-free as possible - I know this product will do the trick!
Here's a picture of what you'll see when you open the case:

I love that the case comes with inserts for each of the blocks. That way, if you are slowly building your selection, you can just remove the foam for the spaces you need and leave the others in place for now.
The foam blocks are a tight fit, so I used nail scissors (instead of my fingernails!) to remove the inserts. The clear blocks fit well, but not as tight as the foam, so you need not worry that they will be difficult to store and use.
Ahem* looks like I need to clean my block! But, see how thick the foam is? Serious stuff! And here's a look at the full box:

 Isn't it a beauty? Ahhhhh!
The gray sheet you see is a thin layer of foam; it will lay inside the case when  you close it to keep the blocks from hitting each other. Love it! Does my type-whatever brain proud. "A place for everything, and everything in it's place." My mom will be so proud, lol!
Thanks for stopping by!

Autumn Days and Brilliance

8.02.2010

 Autumn Days sound good about now when the "real feel" outside is over 100. How about a card to get your mind on the beautiful colors (and temps!) of Autumn?
Although the photo doesn't show it well, the first layer of pine-cones were stamped with Brilliance ink. When you move the card in the light, the images shimmer on your page. If you would like to see how to do this technique, check back later this week. I'm making a video and will post it as soon as I get it edited.

Thanks for stopping by!
