Valentine Fun

I have one more valentine entry before we start thinking about Easter cards!  This time I am using a Kokorosa Custom cutting die called a ‘Big Love Heart Background Die.   I am calling it a heart collage die!  I purchased a similar collage die a while back and I cut it apart to die cut the pieces.  See that card HERE.   This time I left all the die pieces connected and just ran it through that way.  It worked much better and I had main pieces for two cards.

If you look closely, you can see that the left one has the dotted designer series paper (DSP) on the outside border with the real red on the inside which frames the pieces.  The card on the right has the real red on the outside with the dotted designer series paper on the inside.

To keep the card from being too busy, I used only three different DSP designs.  I could run the diagonal paper all at once but I selectively added the three hearts and the three ‘love’ letters.  The DSP is from……

Let me guess…… Teaspoon of Fun?!

Right O’!  And made by Pixie Dust Designs.

It is a 6 X 6 Pad with 24 double sided sheets in 12 designs.  I wish it said what card weight it is because it is much thicker than my other DSP sheets.  It made the mini mailbox project shown below much easier since I didn’t need to add layers for sturdiness.  Can you pick out which sheets I used on the cards?  Here they are again:

.       

For the inside of the valentines, I used the Lovely Words Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up! The die cuts out the circle leaving the word ‘hugs’.

.      

I used the ‘Embrace Each Moment’ Stampin’ Up! set for the greetings on both cards.  The Stampin’ Up! ‘Lakeside Framelits Die cut out the ‘wishing you joy & blessings’ and I stamped the holding hands in grey, stamping off and then stamping on white so it was very light and I could stamp the ‘you will always be my forever’ in red on top of the grey.  I cut out the three circles with the Layering Circles Dies rather than try to write over the DSP.

.

For my other valentine project, I made a mini mailbox!  They are all over pinterest and I wanted to try my hand at creating one.  I wrote down directions for three different ones and then took ideas from each and made my own design with a few extras- I called it ‘Paul’s Mailbox’!

.

.

It holds two Hershey Nuggets.  I didn’t glue the nuggets to the little box so you could eat your chocolates and not ruin the little box.  The two sided DSP was great for having a fun inside and for creating a flag by centering a heart from the pink background side to punch with the Mini Banner Punch.  The other side then matches the box.  You do need to be careful because the DSP is so thick.  I am used to breaking the fibers to get a curve with the bone folder but that ruined the paper, so just carefully fold your base with your fingers if you have stiff DSP.

You need to get that mini banner punch and stamp set out of the Bake Sale since you continue to use it.  

How true – and several others that I really should keep since I do use them.  I just hoped to make room by selling all the wooden ones but it would be better to make room by taking them off the blocks and putting them in CD cases.

Recipe

  • Base:  DSP, 1 1/2″ X 4 1/2″, score at 1″ and 3 7/8″, Burnish the score lines and form a gentle curve, adhere at bottom
  • Back and the Door: DSP, 1″ X 3 7/8″, score each end at 1 1/4 before rounding the ends.
    • I made a template out of white cardstock to fussy cut a rounded end; you could also use the 2nd smallest circle framelit to get a nice rounded cut but I was making multiples and either cut the end too much or too little with the framelit so I just fussy cut  from a template.  It took a couple tries to get the size correct on the template because I wanted the back to fit snugly and not need glued.  You can make a strip 1 1/2 X 1/4, scored at 3/4, to glue the back in place but if it fits snugly you can actually use it to push the chocolates out the front! Adhere this strip to the bottom of the mailbox coming in 1/16″ from the back.  I adhered so the opposite side of the DSP with the pink background was facing up.
    • Looks like a large bandaid!
  • Flag & Flagpole:  DSP strip, 3 1/4 X 3/16, score at 1 5/8.  The diagonal striped paper in the DSP was perfect for cutting a dark red strip that would have the same sheen as the mailbox pieces.  I used the Mini Banner Punch for the flag centering a heart from the DSP.  Manually, you could use a 3/4 long by 5/8 high square and cut one side to be a banner. Fold the flag pole in half and glue the flag between the front and back close to the fold. On the side of the mailbox punch a small hole 5/8″ up from the bottom and 1/2″ over from the front.  Punch a hole 1/4″ up on the flagpole ( I used a paper piercer tool for the holes) and use a tiny brad to attach the flagpole to the mailbox.  Your flag moves!!   When you put in the chocolates, turn the mailbox upside down and put in the top nugget first, then the second nugget to avoid getting stuck on the brad on the inside.
  • Handle:  DSP with pink background, the handle in the ‘Sliding Door Framelits Dies’ fit perfectly over the heart.  It made the handle look like it was a die cut heart but it is really a circle.  Fold the handle right at the circle , punch a hole 1/2″ down and 1/2″ over on the front flap of the mailbox, punch a hole in the handle and adhere with a brad.  Put a bit of glue on the backside of the handle since you don’t want it to move.
  • Heart:  Basic White scrap, I found a perfect sized heart in the Circle Card Thinlits die set.  Stamp the greeting from ‘Love & Happiness’ stamp set with Real Red ink and then die cut.  Sign then mount with glue dots over the brad.
  • Envelope:  Scrap of white cut 1″ X 5/8″ and scrap of red for a tiny heart.  Score the front diagonally corner to corner for an envelope look or use the Kokorosa cutting die which has three sizes of envelopes and three little hearts to die cut. I purchased  through  InLoveArts  but  it  came  in  Kokorosa  packaging.

I thought you were trying to make more room in your craft closet.

Yes, I am beginning to think it is more about having new things to craft with than creating a stash to use.  Wait ’til you see my Easter cards!

Hopeless…..

Let me show you the valentine gift/cards I received:

Joy Meadows made a beautiful valentine card:

.    

The little red heart was a gift from Sharon Fincham last year!

Lisa Christensen had a cute bag of gummies for me:

.

I love-love-love the heart on the back with the letters from ‘Valentine’ in red on the scripture John 3:16!

I want to make some Easter gifts like this so I measured out the cuts and score lines:

Lisa’s was 12 3/4  X 3 1/2  scored at 4 7/8,  6 1/4, 11 1/4 with the 1 1/2 edge punched with a scallop punch. The front cutout is  a 2 1/8″ square. The heart is 3 3/4″.  The greeting is a die cut 2 X 1 3/8 with a to/from tag that is 1 3/4 X 5/8.  She stapled a clear bag with goodies to the back of the bag, added tiny velcro under the flap and made a red bow for the top.

You don’t have 12 3/4″ paper.  

That is a problem so I adjusted the measurements for a 12″ piece of paper:

  • 12 X 3 1/2, scored at 4 1/2, 5 7/8, 10 1/2  still leaving 1 1/2 for the flap.

But you just purchased 6 X 6 Easter paper pads.

Another problem for sure, so I adjusted again only this time added glue tabs since I need three cuts of paper.

  • Front:  DSP, 6 X 3 1/2, scored at 4 1/2 leaving 1 1/2 for the base tab.  Die cut a square in the front 3/4″ from bottom and sides.
  • Back:  DSP,  6 X 3 1/2, scored at 4 5/8 leaving a 1 3/8 for the base tab.  The extra length in the back makes the front curve out nicely.
  • Flap:  Matching card stock 2″ X 3 1/2′  scored at 1/2″

I haven’t made them yet but now I have instructions that fit my paper!

And Jaxson made a card for Papa and Grandma and a card for Ruger.  Both had treats inside:

            Can you see the wings & arrow on cupid?

.     

Jaxson is in first grade and loves to draw!

Paul took me to Gabriels in Sedalia and we had a table by the fireplace!

.

Next up is Paul’s birthday in Breckenridge!  I had better get busy on his card!

Thanks for stopping by!

for a pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world!

Valentine’s Day Pop Up Card

Would you like to see what I made for the grandchildren’s valentines?   Do you ever see a card creation and say -“That is perfect”- what do I need to buy to make it?  That was me when I opened a post of Deb Valder’s at Teaspoon of Fun. She had a pop up card with teddy bears!  Yep – had to have the stamp, and the dies!  Check it out:

.

  

You pull the little heart to pull up the inside of the card.  When it is flat it fits in an A2 envelope. The ‘Always In My Heart’ Stampin’ Up! set was the pull out greeting.

I will link the Stole My Heart stamp set at Teaspoon of Fun at the end with little Sal in the computer. The dies are available as well at Teaspoon of Fun.

We made these pop up cards years ago in club with the cutting and scoring done manually.  I found the instructions carefully documented at Splitcoaststampers.   If you would like those instructions click HERE.

   .     .  

 

To see the products I used on these cards, click HERE.

Do those cards open up sideways as well?

No, Sal, those cards are a vertical card with a full base that opens up.  On the children’s valentines, I didn’t make a full base like those, I left enough space before the “Hi there, Valentine”, to write their name with a white gel pen. These are the products I used that I purchased from Teaspoon of Fun:

And here is a video from Deb Valder of Teasoon of Fun.

Recipe

  • Base:  Real Red,  4 1/4 X 5 1/2, Diecut with the large rectangle die in the ArtZy die set
    • Stamp Greeting in lower section
  • Pop Up Feature:  4 1/4 X 5 1/2, Diecut with the large rectangle die in the ArtZy die set
  • Pull Out Panel:  Basic White, 3 X 4 3/8
    • Stamp greeting before adhering
  • Top Layer:  Basic White, 4 X 5, Diecut with the smaller rectangular die of the set -burnish score lines
    • Flip this over and adhere the small rectangle cut out of Basic White to the 1/2″ bottom of the flap
  • Place foam strips around the sides and bottom of the pop up feature and adhere to card base
  • Embellish:
    • Scraps of red and white, Cut two circles & heart pieces and adhere to both sides of the pull out panel
    • Love Designer series Paper (X2),   2 1/2 X 1 1/2 , Diecut with larger recrtangle; make two
    • Love Designer series Paper, 2 1/2 X 1/2, Diecut with smallest rectangle
  • Bears:  Stole My Heart Stamp Set & Die, Basic White 3 1/2 X 3 1/2
    • Stamp in Memento Black Ink, Die cut with die in set
    • Copic Markers, cheeks- RV11, Bears-E31, E33, E13, Heart-R24, R27, R59
  • Love Flourish:  Love Designer Series Paper, 2 1/4 X 1 1/2 (I used the same DSP as the small rectangle)
    • Cut two additional flourishes in real red and layer the three
  • Heart:  Many Hearts Dies
    • Outside Heart, Real Red, 2 1/2 X 2 1/2
    • Inside Heart, Basic White, 2 3/4 X 2 1/2 with this set of dies you can glue the red directly to the white

That’s not so complicated when you show a video and your dimensions and all the products you used.  

Well, Sal, I list those so I have a good start when I make another.  My card journaling so to speak.

I hope my journal is useful to some of my followers!

Sal will take you to Teaspoon of Fun!

Perpetual Birthday Calendar

Years ago I purchased a kit from Stampin’ Up! that is a perpetual birthday calendar.  Without years shown and without days of the week and with only the days of the month listed, I can pencil in birthdays and have a nice stamped wall hanging for the office.  I held a class when the kit came out; you can see that post HERE.  

The kits were unavailable by the time I advertised and collected the fee so I made my own calendar kit as close to the original as possible.

PerpetualCalendarSheets pdf

Perpetual Calendar Label pdf

Such a fun memory, however I never completed my calendar.  It is hard being a hostess and attempting to stamp a project at the same time, so my kit was put away to prepare for the next event.  It is time to work on my PHD (projects half done) so, out came the kit, and I finished it.

The sheets are 4 1/4 X 10 3/4, two could be printed on a sheet of white cardstock – just remember to watch for the number of days in the month.

“Thirty days hath September, April, June and November, all the rest have 31 except February.”

Thanks, Sal, and February this year has 29 and my printout only has 28.  The pdf file does have 29.

  .  

The stamp set that went with the kit is The Perpeteual Birthday Calendar.  It has fantastic background stamps you will see me use.  However, through the years I have purchased so many additional stamps and dies that I had a plethora of things to choose from.

October uses left over pieces from a Paper Pumpkin.  November uses a tiny ‘thanks’ from Waterfront, an acorn from ‘Time of Year’, another paper pumpkin piece and Itty Bitty Banners. December used ‘Holiday Invitation’ for the holly leaves.

.  Kind-of messy pictures.   

They are Sal, because I didn’t take time to straighten and size and brighten the color on each one.  I just needed to journal them for future reference.  I think the calendar would make a nice craft booth product.  It is an office decoration more than a necessary birthday reminder since our smart phones do that, but it sure is a quick look vs several clicks on the phone.

And now you can pencil in names!

Yes, and I do use a pencil since we have had so many folks come and go in our lives.

March 7 we will be celebrating 17 years of being in this house!   That is a record for us!  All but two of the neighbors on either side of us, across from us and behind us are new from when we moved in.

.  Ummmm…. and Paul’s birthday?

Yes, we closed on the house on his birthday so that will be a fun celebration as well.

July Shoebox Swap with Christine Dillon

Christine Dillon was our designer/presenter for the July Shoebox swap.  There are six of us who take turns designing two projects and make kits for the group which meets monthly.

Ummm….it is September 1st you know.  

Yes, I am behind on posting, but I had some wonderful camping trips!  Would you like to see my pictures?

Probably be best to help your crafting friends with inspiration instead! 

You bet!

Christine designed a 3D watering can for us to make.  Note, this is my construction of her kit so not quite as perfect as her original design.

.  

.

Click on the blue to get the printable version.  The above is just a screen print to show you the pattern.


Christine’s second project was a beautiful birthday card:

.

.

She used the Flourish Thinlits Dies from Stampin’ Up!

  Surely you erased all the excess glue before sending it. 

Of course I did!  I am ‘adhesive challenged’ and I need to use one of the fine tip glue bottles instead of the Tombow glue tip.  I stocked up on Tombow so I want to use it up.

So put the Tombow glue in the fine tip glue bottle. 

Good idea!

This set is on EBAY and it is a beautiful set to add to your stamping collection with a variety of greetings.  I am not ready to sell mine -yet!  Keep an eye on the Bake Sale page and it might be available someday.

How about just one picture?

Paul and I are in front of the Twin Falls in Yankee Boy Basin driving from Ouray, Colorado.

Hopefully we will have a wonderful fall.  We have one more camping trip planned for Steamboat Springs, Colorado!

My daughter and Son In Law own the Wild West Balloon Adventures in Steamboat.  A hot air balloon ride should be on everyone’s bucket list:

You can follow “Wild West Balloon Adventures” on Instagram for some amazing videos!

Have a wonderful day and I will be back soon with the cards from the August shoebox event.

Bringing a pinch of creativity to spice up your crafting world!

Letter Opener Quick Gift

Let’s end 2022 with a quick project that you could add as a little gift to a New Year’s card or birthday card or….. I am casing an idea by Jeanie Stark at Juststampin.com but adding Happiness Hues designer series paper and a stamped “mail” image from ‘Stamping Your Way To the Top’ stamp set to make a pocket which holds a letter opener.  It could also be a gift card holder.

It is another project using the Pretty Pillowbox dies.  This one isn’t as 3D as the last one I made for favors at the Christmas stamp camp but fun to make for a card insert.

Did you ever use the Pretty Pillowbox die as it was intended to be used?  

Well, ummmm…… I guess not!  I used the greeting die in the die set for the Post It Note holder greeting.  It has a stitched edge so it is perfect for this project and many others.

 

These are the letter openers I ordered from Amazon:

Recipe

  • Base: Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo or Gorgeous Grape, 4 1/4 X 4 3/8;  die cut using both the large base die and the die with the two little holes at the same time.  Fold on the middle score line and use tear and tape on the sides.  NOTE:  For these letter openers the tear and tape can’t go all the way to the top.
  • DSP Layer:  Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper, 2 1/4 X 4 1/2, line up with the score line in the middle of the die and die cut just the bottom section.  I selectively cut certain sections of the DSP that matched the base.
  • Greeting:  Basic White, 3 X 1, die cut with the long greeting die AFTER stamping the “Mail” image; you can glue it right on the score line at the top of the die which hides the score line and keeps the greeting straight
  • Ribbon:  15″ of matching color

Here are individual close up pictures:

And a group shot just for fun:

.  

I hope you have had a successful 2022, however you define success, and that you are ready for a new year, with new challenges and new blessings!

“May the Lord bless you and keep you, may He make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you, May He lift up His countenance upon you, and give you peace!”  Numbers 6: 24-26

Sal and I wish you a very Happy New Year!

Party Favor – Post It Note Holder

Do you need a party favor for an event?  These cute Post It Note Holders are great.  It also makes a different type of thank you gift that will make your recipient smile and give her/him something quite useful!

These are the absolute cutest butterfly dies Stampin’ Up! has ever had! They are not realistic just fun and ‘whimsical’ as one of my stampers commented.  This little guy is from the Build A Butterfly Dies set you can see on page 37 of the Annual Catalog.  My catalog tab at the top of the blog will take you to a pdf of that catalog.

Sample A:

.  


Sample B:

This set uses the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper in the July-December mini catalog, pg. 49.

.    

I found a pack of three post it notes at the grocery store in the office section — on sale!!

.  Serendipity!  

For sure, Sal.  You just never know where you will find the beginning of inspiration!  I looked at several crafters directions and combined a little from each to get what I have here.  I loved the rounded corners on the flap that one lady used and I really thought the back should have a pretty piece of the designer series paper, not just the front. I have the little magnets from one of our previous projects -Amazon:

so I used those instead of velcro dots.  Do you see the little tiny heart on the magnet in the fall set?  I have a tiny heart punch in my stash that was the perfect size and didn’t interfere with the magnet.

Recipe

  • Base:  A-Parakeet Party/B-Cajun Craze, 9 1/4 X 3 1/8
    • Score at 2 1/4, 2 5/8, 5 3/4, 6 1/8
  • Top & Back Layer (X2):  A-Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper/ B-Rustic Harvest DSP, 2 7/8 X 2 7/8
  • Flap: Same DSP, 2 X 2 7/8, Corner Round the bottom only of the flap edges, leave the top squared
  • Greeting:  A-Sweet Songbirds Stamp Set for the little note of thanks stamped on a Calypso Coral scrap and cut with a Pretty Pillowbox Die/ B- Sweet Songbirds Stamp Set for the thank you and also to stamp the little wood sign in Soft Suede on Crushed Curry before stamping the thank you.
  • For the magnets- using a glue dot adhere the inside bottom magnet 1 1/2 down and centered from side to side.  Close the bottom flap and place the second magnet on the top of the flap- it will automatically attach to the first magnet.  Place a glue dot on top of the magnet and carefully close the top flap onto the bottom flap keeping your score lines square.

I think you needed a video to help with those instructions.

It would have been better, for sure!

  • A- adhere the thank you and then die cut a Starry Sky butterfly using the Build A Butterly Dies. Adhere with a glue dot and add a Fun Flower Resin Shape
  • B-16″ of ribbon to make a belly band and attach the little sign with a glue dot to the band after tying

Thank you for spending part of your day with me!

SAL,   Smile A Little

Paradise Palms for May Swaps, Sweet Songbirds Catalog Launch

Hello Stamping Friends,

Let’s take a moment to remember those who gave their lives for their country!

Jo Brooks sent a swap card that is so perfect for the day:

.

The little red star is attached to the left and fits inside the blue star creating an awesome hinge.  Opening up the stars, Jo has inserted ‘A Soldier’s Poem’:

 

May we honor their sacrifice by protecting our freedoms as best we can!

Jo’s card uses many Stampin’ Up! Dies– Celebrate You, Basic Borders, Cross of Hope, Scalloped Contours, and Stitched Stars.  What a great card for Memorial Day!  Thank you, Jo!


I have so much to share I hardly know where to start.  Grab a cuppa and settle in for some wonderful inspiration from my group of swappers and the projects at the catalog launch.

You had better hurry!  You have so much to share.


Catalog Launch Fun

Stampin’ Up!’s new annual catalog made its debut May 3rd and it was so hard to decide what to showcase.  I love birds and wasn’t sure about the Sweet Songbirds stamp set until I saw a card made by Sue Vine of Miss Pinks Craft Spot with the bird in the air so I went with that idea and voila:

.

There are two different sets of eyes- open or closed-  and two different feet -standing or walking- and a punch to punch out our little songbird!  Laura Mellinger of laurasworksofgheart.blogspot.com designed the little nest which was perfect for a party favor!

I used the Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes (pg. 137) with strips of the new Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet card stock adhered to the white side which I made the front.   The clouds are from the Give It A Whirl Dies!  The clouds have stitched edges for a fun look and there are hearts and circles and rectangles, a must for your collection, even if you never make a whirly card like I did here.

.   .   

All the attendees got to see the new In Colors up close and personal as they made their color chart:

May Swaps

I chose the Paradise Palms stamp set and Palm Dies on a background of New Horizons Designer Series Paper (retiring June 30) with a Pale Papaya Base and Basic Black accents.  The greeting and birds are from the retired Beautiful Moments stamp set.  The coconuts are from the Pebbles Enamel Shapes (Retiring June 30). I added the setting sun and sponged a bit of extra colors in the sky.

I made a vertical book fold with the same palm tree design and a different piece from the same DSP for the inside of the card that looks like a beach with sea foam just coming in!

.  

.

Horizontal Paradise Palms Recipe

  • Base, Pale Papaya, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, score at 4 1/4

Do you crafters really measure to the 1/16 of an inch?

Well, Sal, we often just eyeball the placement but that doesn’t make for very good instructions.

Let’s look at the swaps from the rest of the group.  We saw Jo Brooks’ swap up top so now let’s look at Sharon’s swap using a tea cup very similar to our new tea cup in the Tea Boutique Suite.  She uses three layers for the butterfly- a Fresh Freesia base, a Blushing Bride die cut and then tops her butterfly with a vellum die cut and a unique oval gem.

Heather used the Flowering Fields DSP (retiring June 30) and a greeting from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in beautifully layered circles on a gold foil circle.  The base is Poppy Parade and she used a corner rounder punch on opposing sides of the DSP for a unique look.

 

Ann’s swap used embossed strips of the new In Colors on a Crumb Cake base and the greeting from Biggest Wish stamped in Parakeet Party with the ‘happy’ stamped over in Starry Sky. The ribbon is the 1/8″ Metallic Woven ribbon in Orchid Oasis

Lucille Kearin used the DSP with butterflies (retired) and a fun ‘hi’ Die.  She embellished with white ribbon and Paper Studio Flowers.

Joy’s card uses the new Nature’s Prints stamp set and Natural Prints Dies.  She used the Gray Granite side of the Sun Prints DSP, the Layering Circles Dies, a doily and beautiful gems.  You would love the sparkly Wink of Stella she used on the branch but the camera didn’t capture the sparkle.  Her gems really sparkled!

 

You must see the other card she made using the Nature’s Prints Dies!  I love the shape of the greeting and had to go look up the dies since I hadn’t even noticed that die.  She used the new Fern 3D embossing folder on a base of Starry Sky and then sponged the top lightly with white craft stampin’ ink.

Lori Moore made a slimline card on a white base with Design A Daydream DSP for her first layer and then a layer of embossed Basic White, a layer of Blackberry Bliss with the top layer of Basic White stamped with the Art Gallery stamp set flower in Berry Burst and Rich Razzleberry.  The leaves and ribbon are Soft Succulent. The greeting is from the Floral Gallery Dies.

Wow, you will have lots of samples to show at your next party!

So true!  Thank you everyone for participating in our monthly swaps!

 

Hopefully, I will have some cards from the May Paper Pumpkin to show you soon.

Don’t hold your breath, she still has the last CTC (case the creator) card to show you and the cards from her party and ….

Now, now, Sal, be kind!  Though you make a good point and I think I even missed the April swaps.

Thank you for spending some time with me!

SAL,  Sharing A Lot of inspiration

March Fun

Good morning, Stamping Friends,

The hostess code for March orders is N9P47DJX.  Use this code if your order is under $150.  If your order is over $150 do not use the code since you will have earned the hostess dollars yourself- 10% of your order to buy most anything you want from the current catalogs.

Here is a walk down memory lane for a swiper St. Patrick’s Day card.  When you pull the card side to side the pot of gold pops up:
 

You can click on the image to go to the post for detailed pictured instructions!  We can change the images to a current product while maintaining rainbows, shamrocks and a pot of gold!

.  You could use me!

Now there’s a thought!  And we could add a pepper shaker to be your friend!

Ann Hausmann cased Kirsteen Gill and made the cutest St. Patrick’s Day favor with current products:

.    .

I didn’t know the ‘Brilliant Rainbow Dies’ had a miniature rainbow?!  I love miniatures!

Thank you, Ann!

We have a few announcements from the home office, a new product suite with paper only available now and of course tickling of our ears for the April Paper Pumpkin.

And then a card or two?

Of course!  I think I need to work backwards to get caught up, so today will be cards from our first CTC challenge!  In past months I have done Mystery Card challenges for our club but I switched to CTC challenges in February- Case The Creator!   It works like this:  l find a video of a card and post the link with the card cuts for stampers to make a fun card that they will share at our fourth Tuesday of the month Zoom meeting.  Anyone can join. Of course February is over,  but the Zoom meeting with the CTC challenge #2 for March will be held next Tuesday at 11:30 and we would love you to make the card and join us to show it off!

February Case The Creator #1 printable pdf file (click on the blue)

Lynn Dunn of Stamptastic Designs is our creator!  Thank you, Lynn.

I made a Valentines Day card since I had all those supplies sitting at my work table, and then I used the same design for February thank you cards.  Another sincere thank you to all those who ordered in February!  The home office announced that shipping goes up April 1st so you may want to order now to save a little.  Shipping will be $7.95 or 11% of the order whichever is larger.

You are off track!

Oops…. That’s why I have you!

I used the ‘Always In My Heart’ stamp set for Be My Valentine on a banner die cut from the Floral Heart Dies.  The paper is the ‘Sweet Talk’  Designer Series Paper in the mini catalog.  I fussy cut candies for the inside.  The Happy Valentine’s Day fits so perfectly in the opening and is from the retired ‘Heartfelt’ stamp set.  The ribbon is the Faux Linen Real Red ribbon from the mini catalog.

   

For the Thank You card and a card for Mom I made these:

.    .  

The paper is from the ‘Flowering Fields’ designer series paper, also in the mini catalog and I used the ‘Jar of Flowers’ stamp set to make a bouquet the perfect size for the pocket opening.  I had a stack of products by the time I finished:

  • Delivering Cheer stamp set – shadow under the jar
  • Positve Thoughts stamp set – Hugs, Prayers, Love
  • Forever Blossoms stamp set – All of me loves all of you
  • Prized Peony stamp set – Love & thanks to a dear friend
  • Jar of Flowers stamp set – Tulips & stems, jar stamped on a window sheet with stazon ink
  • Detailed Bands Dies – cut once in Basic White and once in Fresh Freesia
  • Stampin’ Blends – Lt Fresh Freesia, Dk & Lt Soft Succulent, Dk Rich Razzleberry, Lt Highland Heather, Pineapple Punch

To the above CTC instructions I added a Gorgeous Grape belly band permanently attached  – 1″ X 8 1/4″, score at 1/4″ and then gently fold to determine where it will wrap on the side, then score that fold.

For the bow on the jar I used a 1/8″ X 4″ strip of Gorgeous Grape and folded in a 45 degree fold to which I added a second 1/8″ X 1 1/2″ strip tucked in at the fold.

I also added a 3 X 4 Basic White piece to go on back of the insert for writing a message, a doily and three little brass butterflies.

.  I love the little fussy cut flower laying on the ground in the insert!  Nice touch. 

Thank you, Sal!  Let’s look at the cards from those who participated and sent me pictures.

Joy used the cut off for the pocket to make a second card and the Layering Ovals punch for two different greetings. She’s using products from the Art Gallery suite.

Sharon did three different cards – the pocket card and then used the pieces for two others. She used the ‘Expressions In Ink’ designer series paper and a paper bow from the ‘Pierced Blooms Dies’.

Ann used the hostess ‘Pattern Party’ designer series paper and the ‘Pierced Blooms Dies’.  I love the stripes that peek out from the back:

.    

Heather used the Poppy set in Pool Party for a lovely card:

.   .    

Thank you, dear stampers, for participating and helping others see the variety of creations from one fun fold pocket card! We have a large flower in the opening, a whole bouquet in the opening, a lovely paper bow or even a heart in the opening!

You had better let them know what’s happening at the home office before they get tired of reading and leave! 

Right!


The biggest news is the mini cut and emboss machine is on sale with several compatible bundles – some brought back from retirement!  The sale is only good through March 31!  And remember shipping goes up April 1 so check these off your wish list now!

Pencil Box & Sympathy Cards/Eden Garden

 

If you are opening this blog post in your email be sure and click a second time on the header to go to the full blog.  If you would like to receive an email when I add a new post be sure and put your email address in the box at the right on the blog.

Hello Stamping Friends,

Susie Wood made this lovely sympathy card with the Eden Garden supplies and posted to Pinterest:

The gold leaves are foil and just beautiful!  I would like a whole pack of just that sheet!  I love the greeting in Eden’s Garden Cling Stamps that says “My heart is tied to yours-tug if you need anything” and of course the “Sending Hugs” greeting.  The sympathy greeting on Susie’s card is from the ‘Peaceful Moments’ stamp set.

So if you haven’t been making cards with the new set, what have you been doing?

Well, I haven’t been slacking, Sal (Slave driver At Large).  October is pastor appreciation month and we have three main pastoral staff at our church so I purchased a nice pen and refill for each of them and then created a Pencil Box.  Check it out:

.  

Here is the recipe for future pencil boxes to decorate with whatever you have in your stash:

Pencil Box Recipe

I started by measuring the pen and refill I was putting in the pouch.  This takes a 12 X 12 cardstock.

  • Base:  10 3/4 X 9 1/4; Score at 4, 4 1/2, 8 1/2, 9, 10 1/4

Fold and burnish all your score lines.

Place Tear & Tape on the 1/2″ flap at the right, fold over and corner round the edges.

I used the Crop A Dial to add an eyelet to the flap on two of the pencil pouches, the pink one I just tied with ribbon.

Angle your little side tabs when you cut them for ease and then glue them to the inside.

  • First Layer (2):  3 3/4 X 8
  • Second Layer (2):  3 1/2 X 7 3/4
  • Envelope Flap:  Gold Foil, 8 X 1 1/8 corner rounded
  • Envelope Flap:  DSP, 7 3/4 X 7/8 corner rounded

From there, I found the greetings I wanted and then let the creative juices flow.

“You make the ordinary extraordinary” – Simply Succulents

“You’re absolutely amazing” – Color & Contour

“Thank you”- Hand Drawn Blooms

“You Are So Special” – Tasteful Touches


Unfortunately, I also needed several sympathy/friend cards.  Mary Ann Cowan used Soft Sea Foam on one she had made and it looked soft and comforting.  The Hippo Dies gave me the layers and the Forever Fern Stamp Set and Forever Flourishing dies were used for the greenery.  The Positive Thoughts stamp set has the ‘Hugs, Prayers, Love” greeting and the set also has the little flourish you see here under the ‘With Sympathy’ greeting from Lasting Lily(retired).   The friend card uses the same little flourish and greetings from Welcoming Window (My Sweet Friend) and Seascape (I’m here for you …always).

  • Base:  Soft Seafoam, 8 1/2 X 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4 and 2 1/8
  • Layer:  Soft Seafoam, 2 X 5 1/4, embossed with Tasteful Textile embossing folder
  • Inside: Basic White, 4 X 5 1/4, emboss 2″ on the right hand side with Ornate Floral embossing Folder
  • Vellum:  5 1/4 X 4
  • Ink:  Old Olive, stamped full strength on one leaf and stamped off on the second
  • Dies: Forever Flourishing, Hippo Dies
  • Stamp Sets:  Positive Thoughts, Lasting Lily, Welcoming Window, Seascape

 

The greeting on the next one is from the Kindness and Compassion stamp set.  Very Versailles was used for the vine and the words.  The card stock used  is Pale Papaya and Soft Succulent.  It is so much prettier in real life.  The die used is Detailed Bands.  The sympathy greeting and rose are from the Painted Glass retired set.

.  

.

I need a scrapbook to look back on when I am designing cards and even if you are new to stamping, the layout can inspire you.  I go to the blog Recipe Box when I need the measurements for a certain fold.  Hopefully others find this useful as well.  Please leave a comment if you have used the Recipe Box at any time.  It is encouraging to know the time spent is valuable.

Did I sideline you with my ‘scrapbook’?  I really want you to see Eden’s Garden so you don’t miss out on those beautiful papers!

Thank you, Brian, for a great view of the papers!!

SAL,  Scrapbooking A Lot of ideas

Dove of Hope Ornament & Gift Box

Hello Stamping Friends and Followers,

Remember to click on the header if you are reading this is in your mobile device so you access the full blog where the videos work.

December hostess code is:  F3ZE2UD2

Yesterday was a delightful time with virtual stamping and a virtual party!!  I host a Christmas party each year for my club members to thank them for their faithful support.  I opted for a Zoom party this year and it was fun!  The theme was Snowmen and I was able to find snowmen gift bags and snowmen boxes and a snowman mug, and snowmen plates and napkins and kitchen towels and a snowman buddy to keep them company.  So if anyone is looking for a way to connect this Christmas season, read on for a few ideas and CASE (copy and share everything)  what you can.  Leave me a comment if this helped and add your ideas for others to read.

Christmas Party Bag:

  • Snowman Bag
  • Snowman Buddy to sit beside you
  • Dryer Sheets (just because everyone needs these for cutting out the intricate dies and cleaning up glitter)
  • Snowman round box filled with cotton balls for the game
  • Sleep Mask and plastic spoon on top to blindfold yourself for the cotton ball game
  • Hot Chocolate holder with a candy cane and snowman Ghirdellis (tradition)
  • Microwave popcorn holder
  • Snowman mug, plates, napkin, and cleanup towel
  • Chex Mix and Honey Roasted Nuts
  • Christmas Feud Game Cards packaged with two plain white face masks to stamp
  • Christmas Song Bingo Card with packet of buttons for bingo markers, and craft supplies-red and green sparkly pipe cleaners, bells and ribbon to make a pipe cleaner ornament.  I saw this on Pinterest.

I purchased and downloaded the Christmas song Bingo cards on Etsy and used Spotify on my phone to create a playlist for the songs that were on the Bingo cards.

I purchased the Christmas Feud cards from Etsy.

The plain white face masks were at the Dollar Store as were many of the other items.  It was amazing to see what these creative crafters did to decorate their face masks.  Give a creative person a blank canvas and just watch them go to work!

Masks were scored on basis of :  Participation, something with the snowman theme, image was recognizable, someone said oohhh or ahhhh, it made us laugh.

The round boxes were filled with cotton balls and the party goers were instructed to use the sleep mask (Walmart) to blindfold themselves, place the top of the plastic spoon in their mouth and see how many cotton balls they could dish out of the round box and place in the lid in two minutes.  Points were given for each cotton ball that made it to the lid.

Three rounds of Bingo were played with scores of 3 points for the first bingo, 2 points for the second bingo(s), 1 point(s) for the third bingo(s).

Family Feud was scored as per the game cards.

I kept a running list of scores and then the person with the lowest score got to choose from the first white elephant gift, then up the line to the top score with each person able to keep or steal.

Here are some close ups just for fun:

Recipe for a hot chocolate holder:

  • Pacific Point,  8 1/2 X 5 1/2  Scored lightly at 4 1/4 and then diagonally from 1 3/4 at top to 2 1/2 at side.  The front is stamped randomly with the tiny snowflake stamp from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Whisper White.  Use tear and tape to glue the diagonal to the inside and to glue the bottom and side of the holder.
  • Bottom Strip:  Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper, 1 1/2 X 4 1/4.
  • Whisper White:  5 1/2 X 4 1/4, die cut three snowflakes from So Many Snowflakes Dies. Stamp in Pacific Point ink the outer ring of the greeting with the Warm Hugs stamp set as well as the greeting from the Warm Hugs set.  They are both die cut with the Warm Wraps Dies and glued together.  The coffee mug can be stamped right through the circle, stamped again to color the mug and then the steam is stamped in smoky slate.
  • Small Rhinestones were added to the center of the snowflakes and two on the greeting.
  • Insert bow wrapped candy cane and hot chocolate.  The ribbon I used is retired.

My darling Paul made all of the hot chocolate holders after I gave him a prototype so I could make snowmen popcorn holders.  Thank you, my love.

Look at the different plaids on these snowmen!

I loved choosing scarf and hat band colors from the exceptional, gorgeous, amazing Plaid Tidings 6 X 6 paper.  The paper will be retiring on January 4.  It is in the mini on page 57 and is $11.50 for 48 sheets.  Item #153527.

Recipe:

  • Base: Whisper White, 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 2 1/8 and 6 1/4.  Check your popcorn before scoring!
  • Nose: Pumpkin Pie, one petal of the Large Daisy Punch
  • Eyes: Stamp directly on base with the largest of the Sweetest Time holly berries.  Use a sticky note and punch two circles and you can have perfect alignment each time and no masking:

It looks like you were trying to make an eyebrow and not doing too well. 

No, Sal, that is just the other two berries on the holly berry stamp.  I chose that stamp because it has the little white semicircle to add twinkle to the eye.  I usually use my white marker but this looked better and saved an extra step.  I found that if I started with the eyes I could line the sticky note up exactly where I wanted the hat brim which helped me glue the brim on straight.  The top of the hat then lined up perfectly at the back on the white base so I could glue it on quickly.  Back to the recipe:

  • Mouth, Black Marker and a 2 1/2 inch circle template to draw around.  Be careful and replace it once in a while or the black ink will build up and get ink on your snowman.  Yep- found that out the hard way!
  • Hat Brim:  Basic Black, 4 1/2 X 1 1/2
  • Hat Top:  Basic Black, 2 3/4 X 3, this gives you 7/8 inch on each side of brim
  • Hat Band:   Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (DSP), 1/2 X 2 3/4
  • Scarf:  Matching Plaid Tidings DSP,  5/8 X 5 1/2 (X2), make little cuts at the ends for fringe
  • Back: Matching Plaid Tidings DSP,  1 X 5 1/2,  Note- put adhesive on the white base on the right hand fold, attach the strip, place adhesive on the left hand side of whisper white base and then place popcorn in the holder and fold the right over the left.  I found the popcorn bags weren’t all consistently filled so I had to flatten them as best I could before putting them in their holder.    This one got an extra little strip because my glue went outside the band.  I also had to glue a matching strip over the back of the scarf since I ran my glue clear to the end of the scarf.

If you just add a couple glue dots to hold the popcorn bag, the recipient shouldn’t have to ruin the holder and it can be regifted.

but I like it with extra matching DSP on the back of the scarf.  

It does match nicely and if you have the time it is great!  If you are scrambling three days before a party-maybe not an option, but definitely better than trying to get the glue off the back of the scarf!  Where’s your snowman, Sal?

Better?

 

Yes, but I will have to get you one of the face masks the ladies made!

Dove Ornament and Gift Box

My goal is to be consistent with ‘Take A Break Tuesday’ facebook live at 9:30 on the second Tuesday of each month. Check it out-

 

Mini Paper Pumpkin Gift Box:

Recipe:

  • Mini Paper Pumpkin Box from Annual Catalog page 152,  #153069, $7.50 for 10
  • Mats (border) for box:  Copper Foil Sheet,  Top= 3 5/8 X 5 3/8, Short Side= 7/8 X 3 5/8 (X2), Long Side=7/8 X 5 5/8 (X2)
  • Designer Series Paper:  Brightly Gleaming, Top=3 1/2 X 5 1/4, Short Side= 3/4 X 3 1/2 (X2), Long Side=3/4 X 5 1/2 (X2)
  • Greeting on Box Top:  Whisper White, 4 3/4 X 3 1/2, Die cut with Celebration Labels Dies, third largest
  • Inside Heart:  Whisper White, 3 X 3, punched with heart punch or die
  • Memento Black Ink, Old Olive Ink and a sponge dauber

I cut out the copper layer for the inside of the box from the copper rectangle mat we used on the top and die cut it with the third largest Celebration die.   I also cut out the Designer Series Paper for the inside using the 4th largest Celebration die and the rectangle I cut for the top of the box.  No need to waste that beautiful paper that will be hidden by the Whisper White top layer!

If you still have some of the retired copper embossing powder from the previous catalog you could emboss the “peace, love, joy”  and the inside greeting in copper for a nice touch!

Dove Ornament

I found this ornament on Pinterest made by Andrea Sargent of Valley Inspiration with Andrea. Thank you, Andrea!

Recipe:

  • Dove:  Whisper White, 3 3/4 X 5 1/2, die cut two detailed wings and one body
  • Dove:  Vellum, 3 3/4 X 5 1/2, die cut two plain wings, one body and one of the small plain tail pieces
  • Olive Branch:  Old Olive, 1 1/2 X 1 1/2, die cut with small olive branch die
  • Gold Hoop:  Page 156 of Annual Catalog
  • Gold Cording:  11″, page 31 of the Mini Catalog
  • Glue dots, Tombow liquid glue and mini dimensionals.   The vellum is glued to the whisper white with liquid glue in just the areas that are solid,  the peace branch is glued to the beak with liquid glue, the wings are then mounted with mini dimensionals to the body and the dove is then attached to the hoop with glue dots at the tail, the branch and the front wing only,  making sure the glue dots are stretched and rolled to not have any excess between the dove and the hoop.
  • Fold the gold cording in half and loop it over the hoop and then tie it in a knot at the top, cutting off the excess.

And with Christmas only 16 days away, do you think anyone will make any of these? 

Sal, these would all be perfect for Christmas craft fairs next year and those projects must be started months ahead of time.  Consider me ahead of things instead of a procrastinator!

 Choke……

I know.

Have a wonderful day ladies and click on over to the online store where you can see what products from the mini are on sale and which are discounted – some 50%!

The Clearance Rack has also been refreshed with new products so check those out.  They go quickly!
