Tool Box Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Today I have a fun masculine themed card to share with all of you. I have a lot of “handy” men in my family so I wanted to design something different for them. I have seen a few tool box card ideas on Pinterest and thought it would be fun to create one!

This card is easier to create than it looks! I promise! To make This card, start with a piece of Real Red cardstock for the base of your card. Take the Classic Label punch and use it to make a groove across the bottom of the card. Cut a 1 x 4, 1-1/2 x 4 and 2 x 4 inch piece of Real Red cardstock. Emboss each of the pieces with the sparkle textured embossing folder (or if you have a diamond plate embossing folder that would be perfect)! These pieces will be the drawers for the tool box. Cut three (3) 1/2 x 4 inch pieces of black cardstock and adhere them to the top of each drawer using a bit of SNAIL or other adhesive. Using the Nailed It Bundle, stamp a variety of tools and a sentiment on a piece of silver foil paper or cardstock. Note:  You will need to use black Staz-On ink to stamp on the silver foil. Cut all of the tools and sentiment out using the Builder Framelits. Set aside until you assemble the cart and drawers.  Punch out two 3/4 inch circles from black cardstock and adhere to the bottom of the card (these will serve as your wheels). Use the left over silver pieces (from cutting out the nut) as the center for your wheels. You will have to cut out an extra one so you have a center for both wheels. Adhere the wheels to the card before you add the drawers. Add dimensionals to the back of each of the drawers and adhere them to the card front starting at the top with the smallest drawer and working your way to the bottom.  The bottom drawer will overlap onto the wheels. Now, randomly adhere the tools to the tool box using glue dots.  That’s it!  Enjoy!

Tie Dyed

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful week!  Happy Friday!  The Stampin’ Up! Retirement sale is underway and, of course, I am in awe at the amount of items that are retiring!  I am always surprised and a little sad to see some of my favorite products retire.  But that just means that there is more room for some NEW products…which is always exciting!  Well today I want to share a little project I created with a few of the retiring stamp sets in the Occasions Catalog!  If you love the “tie dyed” look then you are gonna love this card.

To make this card, start with a piece of Flirty Flamingo cardstock for the base of the card.  Cut a 5-1/4 x 3-1/2 inch piece of whisper white cardstock. Grab a Styrofoam plate or plastic container and one baby wipe! Yes, a baby wipe! Lay the baby wipe on the plate and randomly drop the following ink colors on the baby wipe:  Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Sweet Sugarplum. The baby wipe, with the ink, becomes your ink pad!  Now simply ink up the background stamp by pushing it down into the ink on the baby wipe, then stamp it on your cardstock. Repeat this process for the little heart images. Cut a 5-1/4 x 1 inch piece of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock…gently tear the cardstock in half so you end up with a rough edge and adhere it to the bottom part of the white cardstock. Adhere the entire piece to your card front. Stamp a little t-shirt using the Custom Tee stamp set and adhere to the cards as shown with a few dimensionals. For the finishing touch, embellish with some of the In Color enamel shapes. Enjoy!

Dragonfly Dreams

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Hope you had a wonderful start to your week!  Today I have quick and simple little card idea that showcases the Dragonfly Dreams bundle of products. I decided to cut one of the dragonfly images from a piece of Gold Glimmer paper!  The picture really doesn’t do it justice…it’s so much more sparkly in person but I’m sure you get the idea!

To make this card, start with a piece of Delightful Dijon cardstock for the base of your card. I coordinated the color of the cardstock with the color of the designer paper that I was using. So if you decide to re-create this card with some of the pretty patterned papers YOU have on hand, then simply change out the color of the cardstock to coordinate with your papers. Next, I cut a 3-3/4 x 5 inch piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock and adhered it to the center of the card front. Cut a 3 x4 inch piece of your favorite patterned paper and adhere it to the Chocolate Chip cardstock as shown. Cut a 1 x 3-3/4 inch piece of Delightful Dijon cardstock, stamp a little sentiment on it, using Chocolate Chip ink, and adhere it across the bottom of the patterned paper.  Cut out a dragonfly, using the thinlits in the bundle, from a piece of gold glimmer paper. Adhere the gold sparkly dragonfly to the center of the patterned paper as shown. For the finishing touch, embellish wth a few metallic enamel shapes. Enjoy!

Star Blast

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Today I have some fun little projects to share with you that showcase the Star Blast Edgelits! I have been having a blast (pun intended) using these dies to create some gorgeous cards for my team members!  I decided to use “bronze” and “silver” to create the cards because it represents different levels of achievements for Stampin’ Up! demonstrators. I had several team members promote to bronze elite and silver levels so it was so fun to coordinate cards and gifts for them!

To make the “Silver” card, start with a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock. Stamp a little congratulatory sentiment on the bottom of your card using Smoky Slate ink. Using the Star Blast Edgelit, cut out the silver star blast from a piece of silver foil paper and adhere it to the middle of your card using a few glue dots.  Cut a 1-1/4 x 4 inch piece of silver glimmer paper and adhere it over the bottom portion of the star blast die cut as shown. For the finishing touch, embellish the card with the little stars that are left over from cutting out the Star Blast image! Super simple and it looks so cool!  This is the perfect card for a graduation or to celebrate any type of accomplishment!  Plus this star blast die is part of the Stampin’ Up retirement sale so you can pick it up at a super price! Enjoy!

Party Animal

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Today is my daughter’s 28th birthday! Wow how time flies!  We are going to celebrate with her tonight! And although I’m not going to share the birthday card I created for her (just in case she reads this) I will share a fun little birthday card idea with all of you. This particular card was created with several leftover scraps that I had on my crafting table.  My goal this year is to use up my scraps (instead of storing them). 🙂

The card showcases some of the fun color combos and paper from the Party Animal Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack. To make this card, start with a piece of Pacific Point cardstock for the base of your card. Now I was using some leftover scrap pieces of the Party Animal DSP so each piece measures about 4-1/2 x 1-1/4 inches. I simply adhered them to the card front as shown; tuck a little doily under the right hand side of the DSP. I ran a few strips of some scrap ribbon down the center of the DSP to cover up the spot in which they overlapped. Stamp the birthday sentiment, using Pacific Point ink, on a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with one of your circle framelits; you will need about a 2-1/2 in sized circle. Then cut out a scalloped circle from a piece of Tangerine Tango cardstock to “matte” out your sentiment. To give your card a bit of dimension, stamp the sentiment again on a piece of white cardstock, using Emerald Envy ink, and cut out the “Happier Birthday” section and make a little banner. Adhere this across the circle as shown.  It’s a simple way to add two different colored inks to your sentiment!  For the finishing touch, embellish with a few metallic enamel shapes! Enjoy!

Garden In Bloom

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  I hope you are planning some fun, crafty things for this weekend!  Today I want to share some pretty little cards that were actually inspired by this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit called Bunny Buddies. Now you might be wondering why that kit inspired these cards? Well the kit contained these beautiful colors and some fun bunny ears.  I actually took the bunny ears, cut off the tip, and used them to create a little flower pot!  Fun, hey?  You can accomplish the same thing but trimming down an “oval” shape so that it’s flat on the top and bottom (instead of pointy).

The idea for the color combo used on these cards came from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper pack. Sweet Sugarplum and Peakaboo Peach work so well together!  The green leaves were stamped with Always Artichoke. You will choose a color for your card base: either a piece of Sweet Sugarplum or Peekaboo Peach cardstock.  Hint:  I used the same color cardstock for the base of my card as I did to stamp the flower image.

Cut a piece of Sweet Sugarplum for the base of the card. Cut two (2) 1 x 5-1/4 inch pieces of the Peekaboo Peach colored pattern from the Playful Palette DSP pack. Adhere them to each side of the cardfront; about 1/4 inch away from the side (so that you have some of the Sweet Sugarplum cardstock showing). Cut a 3 x 5-1/4 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock. This is the piece you will do your stamping on. Using the images from the Garden in Bloom stamp set, stamp the stem of the flower first, using Always Artichoke (or some type of green ink). Stamp the leaves. Then stamp the flower using Sweet Sugarplum ink. Cut out a medium sized oval from the same patterned paper that you used for the sides of the card, snip off the top and bottom so that it resembles a flower pot. Adhere it over the stem. Adhere the entire white piece in the center of your card front and overlapping it onto the 1 inch pieces of DSP. For the finishing touch, add a little sentiment and a few enamel dots! Enjoy!

Hey Chick

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Today I want to share a fun little project created with the “Hey Chick” Sale-a-bration stamp. This is the most popular Sale-a-bration stamp set!  Just an FYI…there are less than 2 weeks left of Sale-a-bration so be sure to take advantage of all of the amazing products and deals!

I decided to make it a little vintage style card so I hope you enjoy it! To make this card, start with a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Randomly stamp some of the images from the Timeless Texture stamp set around the outside of the Crumb Cake cardstock using Crumb Cake ink.  Stamp the bushy haired chick in the open spaces on the cardstock. Stamp the chick on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut it out with one of the oval framelits and sponge it with a bit of Crumb Cake ink. Run a piece of Very Vanilla Trim across the center of the Crumb Cake cardstock and secure the entire piece to the front of the card. Cut out a scalloped oval framelit using Blushing Bride cardstock. Adhere the two ovals together and secure to the middle of the Crumb Cake cardstock. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Trim and tie it in a knot, trim the ends and adhere to the card with a glue dot.   For the finishing touch, stamp a sentiment on a 1/2 inch piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, trim the end into a little banner and adhere it to the card as shown. Enjoy!

Designer Tee

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  Today I want to showcase a fun little bundle of products called Custom Tee and the coordinating Sale-A-Bration stamp set called Designer Tee that you can earn for FREE.  There are soooo many possibilities with this bundle! Of course my favorite sayings are the stamping related ones. I have been busy creating some fun cards, like this, for my new stampin’ team members.”When in doubt, STAMP.”  Love it! Such a great little saying!

Now I used all of the 2016-2018 In Colors on this card but you can choose any color combo you like!  To make this card, start with a piece of Peekaboo Peach for the base of the card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Whisper White cardstock. Randomly stamp the phrase “When in Doubt Stamp” all over the background of the card. Alternate ink colors for a fun look! Stamp a few flower images in the background as well. Sponge a bit of Peekaboo Peach in the center of the card as this helps soften the background a bit. Adhere a metallic doily to the right side of the card as shown. Cut or punch out a circle shape from Peekaboo Peach cardstock and adhere it to the center of the doily. On a scrap piece of white cardstock, stamp the tee shirt, decorate it up and cut it out with the coordinating framelit. Adhere it to the center of the circle using a few dimensionals. For the finishing touch, embellish the card with some rhinestones. Enjoy!
