Freebie_Friday-001

This week for Freebie Friday we’re doing some Emboss Resist.

ThankfulThoughts-EmbossResist-July2016

My Album 1_2-001

Measurements:

  • Very Vanilla – 4-1/4” x 11”
  • Very Vanilla – 3-1/8” x 3-1/2”
  • Crushed Curry – 3” x 3”
  • Emerald Envy – 2-3/4” x 2”
  • 5/8” Burlap Ribbon – 2”
  • Metallic Gold Thread – 20”

 

Instructions:

  1. Score the Very Vanilla card base at 5 ½”, fold and ink the large background stamp image from the You’ve Got This set in Crumb Cake. Stamp the image onto scrap paper, huff on the image, and stamp a 2nd time onto the front of the card base.  Set aside.
  2. Ink up the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts set using VersaMark and stamp onto the upper left corner of the 3-1/8” x 3-1/2” Very Vanilla cardstock piece. Cover the entire sentiment with Clear Embossing Powder, tap of excess powder and set using the Heat Tool on high making sure to move the heat tool to the next area as the powder melts. NOTE:  if you overheat the embossing powder, it will eventually melt into the paper and will not give you the shine and raised texture of the images. Let cool.
  3. Use a Stamping Sponge, rub and ‘swirl’ ink over top of the embossed images. Use Dapper Denim for the bottom half and Emerald Envy for the top half. Sponge the ink over the images and be sure to cover all cardstock areas that have not been embossed.  NOTE:  rub in ink lightly and gradually add more to fit your tastes.  You can always add more ink, but you can’t take away.
  4. Wipe the ink off of the embossed images using a napkin or paper towel. The embossing ‘resists’ the ink…only the non-embossed areas will soak in the ink that has been rubbed on.
  5. Using the largest Project Life Card Framelit, position one rounded corner to line up with the upper left-hand corner of the finished sentiment piece. Line up the sentiment to the bottom right hand corner of the card base at an angle and trim off the excess using Paper Snips.  Add Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Using the Aqua Painter, squeeze enough water from the barrel to add water to the brush. Flick water onto the finished sentiment layer to create speckles.
  7. Fold the 5/8” Burlap Ribbon in half and stick together using 2 Glue Dots. Use Glue Dots to attach to the back of the finished sentiment layer.
  8. Wrap the Metallic Gold Thread around approximately 4-5 times (depends on how big you want your circles) and add to the back of the finished sentiment layer using a Glue Dot.
  9. Die cut a Swirly die from the Crushed Curry piece and attach the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  10. Die cut a set of leaves from the Emerald Envy piece and attach to the card base using Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  11. Position the sentiment layer so that the right and bottom edges are flush with the edges of the card base. Add Gold Sequences to the card using Multipurpose Liquid Glue

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Welcome back to another ‘Tip Thursday’ and this week I’m showing you how easy it is to get this effect by colouring and stamping your Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

 

Click on the card to return to the post on the above card or click here.

measurements-001

  • Card Base – Pool Party 29.6cm x 10.5cm
  • Layer 1 – Garden Green 14.3cm x 10cm
  • Layer 2 – Whisper White 13.8cm x 9.5cm

The above card was completed using sponged colour on the Embossing Folder with the ‘sun’ being placed later.

Here’s another view of the Christmas card

20160908_152438

The sentiment is adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals with the Silver Metallic Thread being adhered with Glue Dots. I find Glue Dots great for the thread as it allows you to manipulate the thread quite easily.

The Latte Girls’ are back with another Freshly Brewed Blog Hop and this week it’s all things Pockets. So I decided to get my Envelope Punch Board working and make a pocket card for Christmas.

20160911_160938

I used the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper from the Holiday Catalogue to make the pocket and band on the front of the pocket. The Envelope Punch Board makes it very easy to make a pocket like this and you just trip off one of the shorter ends if you don’t want the pocket to be enclosed like an envelope. I designed the size so the whole project will fit inside an envelope which has been stamped with the Reindeer from the Cookie Cutter Photopolymer Stamp Set.

20160911_161010

The card has a base of Early Espresso and then Whisper White which has the Reindeer stamped on it and some 1/8″ wide Silver Ribbon through the top as a tag pull. Plenty of room to write on the card and you could even enclose some money or a gift card inside.

20160911_161049

The Reindeer is hand cut and I stamped it again in Real Red so I could give it a red nose which is attached with Liquid Glue. I decided to place the circles off centre just to be a bit different. The sentiment is stamped in Real Red from Teeny Tiny Wishes (love that set) and punched with the new Classic Label Punch.

I hope you liked this project and I’d love to read your comments. Make sure you ‘hop’ on by Leonie and Narelle’s blogs to see the inspiration they have to share with you.

You couldn’t get a better combination than Cookies and Ornaments for Christmas could you? Here I have combined the Cookie Cutter Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set with the Delicate Ornament Thinlit Dies and of course Red Glimmer Paper. You can’t have Christmas without a bit of glimmer and shimmer, right? I’ve also use the Softly Falling Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

20160915_153130

I love this Reindeer, I think he’s very cute. I’ve stamped him a second time in Real Red and cut his nose out for the front of the card. Just turn your stamp so the bottom of it is inked and stamp on some scrap and cut out with Paper Snips. It’s that easy.

Being part of the Stampin’ Up! family has many benefits and one is the wonderful friendships you make both online and in person. Just look at this lovely gift I received from another Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, the gorgeous and thoughtful Debbie Blake.

20160908_125445

Debbie has used quite a number of different products to complete these projects focussing on the Irresistibly Floral Specialty Designer Series Paper.

20160908_125542

The card has a base of Sweet Sugarplum then a layer of Silver Foil before adding the coloured Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP which has been coloured using a Sponge Brayer and Sponges.

20160908_125505

The box looks a little the worse for wear as it’s traveled a long way in a postal bag with bubble wrap. The Gift Bag Punch Board and Layering Circle Framelit Dies have been utilised in the making of the box.

20160908_125525

To obtain an even colour start with the lightest colour and your Sponge Brayer, carefully adding the next colour as desired. It’s quite easy to blend the colours with the new Brayers or with sponges.

I felt very special receiving this gift, thanks so much Debbie.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Freebie_Friday-001

Welcome to another Freebie Friday and this week I bring you something a little different again, a self-closing box. Read on for all the important information:

Self-Closing Box

My Album 1_2-001

Measurements:

  • Sweet Sugarplum Cardstock: 8-1/2” x 6” plus scrap for tag
  • Whisper White Cardstock: scrap for tag
  • Blooms & Bliss DSP: 2 pieces each 3-3/4” x 3-3/4” and 2 pieces each 3-3/4” x 3/4″

Instructions:

  1. With Sweet Sugarplum cardstock, score as follows:
    • Score short edge at 1” and 5”
    • Score long edge at 4” and 8” for entire length. Score at 2” and 6” to first score line only
    • Use straight edge and stylus to score the diagonal lines shown on the diagram below. Tip: put cardstock on a paper piercing mat first to make it easier to push the stylus into the cardstock.
  2. Cut along the sold lines as shown below (2”, 4”, 6”, and 8” down to 1” mark; 4” and 8” up to 1” mark). Trim away small rectangles on side and also a little triangle above and below, leaving just a flap.
  3. Mark the center of one edge of DSP square and draw diagonal lines from the mark to the outer corners. Cut on lines to make 3 triangle shapes to match the box.  Repeat for second DSP square.  NOTE: the diagram is really showing the box upside down.  The edge with 2 long flaps is actually the top of the box, so if your DSP has a direction, keep that in mind.
  4. Adhere the DSP to the box, leaving just a small border. Adhere the strips to the top flaps of the box.
  5. Apply adhesive of your choice (Tear & Tape, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Fast Fuse, etc) to flap and adhere to opposite side of box. Fold 4 flaps in and apply adhesive to two opposite sides and adhere.
  6. Wrap the top of the box with a length of ribbon, tying in a bow. The box can be opened and closed without untying the ribbon – just squeeze to open and release to close.
  7. Stamp greeting on cardstock scrap and punch with 1-1/4” circle punch. Punch 1-3/8” circle of Sweet Sugarplum and layer together.  Attach to box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

20160906_131120 I’ve posted a few of these cards over the last couple of months and have been asked many times how to do it. So today for Tip Thursday I have a Video Tutorial for you. It’s quite easy really, just have a play and see what you can come up with.

measurements-001

  • Card Base is 29.6cm x 10.5cm
  • Layer 1 (Whisper White) is 14.3cm x 10cm
  • Layer 2 (Pear Pizzazz) is 13.8cm x 9.5cm
  • Layer 3 (Water Colour Paper) is 13.3cm x 9cm

Here’s another view of my card:

20160906_131140

I’ve used the same flower for the inside of the card and the front and back of the envelope as I did on the front of the card. However, I stamped it in Sweet Sugarplum. The advantage of Photopolymer Stamps is you can see exactly where you need to place them.

Back again with another Latte Girls’ Blog Hop and this week Freshly Brewed Projects brings you projects with Foxy Friends. Make sure you check out the inspiration on Leonie and Narelle’s blogs and leave a comment while you’re there. We love to read your comments.

alittlefoxysuite

The items for my card today came from this Little Foxy Suite as well as the Jolly Hat Builder Punch.

20160907_154646

Now I must tell you I borrowed the Foxy Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set from a dear friend, Beryl. I had said I wasn’t purchasing it because where I live foxes are an invasive introduced species and kill many other animals around rural communities. However, even I must admit he’s cute. I did purchase the punch and will use it with the Cozy Critters Stamp Set when funds permit. So here is my card, version 1 which is just a little bit Merry for Christmas. Then I stepped it up a bit.

20160908_125613

On this card I have given the little fox a hat using the Jolly Friends Photopolymer Bundle which combines the stamps and the punch. I decided on a striped hat and it’s a little hard to see the pop-pom on the end, but it is there.

20160908_125629

Here’s a little closer look at the fox, looking oh so pleased with himself with his new hat.

20160907_154709

I used the stars from Star of Light Photopolymer Stamp Set to add one to the top of the tree and to add inside the card and to the front and back of the envelope.

Here is what you get when you buy the Bundle (stamp set and punch) at 10% off!! Great bargain.

Isn’t this just the cutest Note Card you’ve seen lately? OK I know there are lots of others using this stamp set, but I was proud to complete this Note Card.

We made it at a Latte Girls Team Gathering and Leonie always has awesome projects for us to do. These are otherwise known as ‘Make & Takes’. I often just do the ‘Take’ part however, this time I actually made the project and completed it.

We stamped Santa from the Cookie Cutter Set which is photopolymer and thus it makes it easy to see where you’re stamping, especially on the envelope. We coloured him in with a Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Write Marker.

The Designer Series Paper is from Candy Cane Lane with the ribbon coming from the combo pack 3/8″ (1 Cm) Ribbon Silky Taffeta. We just looped the ribbon through the Scallop Tag Topper and tied it with the Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine.

You could make a lot of these using just this stamp with the coordinating punch or any of the other images in the Cookie Cutter Set. You get 20 Note Cards and Envelopes in 1 packet, so this would make a lovely gift for someone or make your Christmas Card giving easier.

Pop back next Tuesday for another Christmas inspiration. I’d love to read your comments on my Christmas Tuesdays.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
