Bokeh Time Gift Set

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Are you in need of a gift for a Mother, Sister, Aunt, Friend, another Crafter??? The list is endless isn’t it?  Sometimes though it’s nice to give a gift that keeps on giving that’s why I enjoy making card sets to gift to someone.  I leave the insides blank so that they can personalize them for whatever occasion arises.

Just Rite Stampers always releases the best collection of sentiment stamps which is what I’m drawing from today, Bokeh Time Stamps a set of eight sentiments and additional stamps of hearts, circles, stars etc.  This makes the perfect base to draw from when making a collection of cards.

P1140558

 

Now a gift is better if it’s in a pretty package right?  I used my MartP1140560ha Stewart Scoreboard to make a simple six inch square box.  I lined it with tissue and it’s the home for the eight cards I made.  You can see how I layered tissue paper in the bottom and closed it with this gorgeous snippet of fabric that was gifted to me by my friend Eva.  Adding a tulle tie with one of the Heartfelt Creations flowers I created a few weeks back just finishes off the outside

 

 

I wanted to try and keep my cards flat ready to fit in a standard envelope with one-stamp postage.  I have difficulty doing this most times.  I like ribbons and bling and bumpy flowers and that in turn bumps the price up when you go to mail to parcel prices. Most of these, with the exception of perhaps one, I think will slip into the mail with no problem at all.

I pulled out white cardstock, some Lindy’s sprays in teal and pink (yes I know I’m really stuck on these colors lately), my Bo Bunny Stickable Stencils, my texture paste and a couple of Tim Holtz distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Picked Raspberry. I sprayed, painted, spritzed with water, textured, well———————- you get the picture I just sat down, had fun, and played. When I had enough papers altered I made enough white and blue card bases (standard A2 size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) to complete the set.

P1140569

By pre-doing all my card bits and pieces I could just sit down and start assembling, a little of this, a little of that, just having fun seeing what I could come up with using each one of the eight sentiments on cards.  You know we so often buy stamp sets because there’s a stamp in the collection that calls to us.  How often do we use that one stamp and then stick the rest of the package back, sometimes we pull them back out and sometimes we just move on to another new set.  My challenge to all of you is to get a set of stamps with assorted sentiments and use every stamp in the collection making cards.

P1140573

If we’ve already got all our stuff in front of us why not make a whole set of cards while we’re there instead of just making the one we need right now.  I’ll tell you a secret, once you see those cards begin to pile up and each one different from the other it gets pretty contagious and you want to just keep on going like the Energizer Bunny.

P1140575

I hope you’ll come join me on this weeks video, I’ve only shown you half the cards here but I’ll share them all on the video plus ideas to inspire you to pull out your stamps and make someone a lovely gift box of love.

Thanks everyone for joining me,

Introducing Bo Bunny Stickable Stencils

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

I am such a crazy person and I bet there are a lot of you out there just like me.  Do you get all excited when you get a new product to play with?  That’s how I felt today when I opened the new Bo Bunny Stickable Stencils.  Wow what fun are they!

Bo-Bunny-Stickable-Stencil-Bliss-12x12-cut-at-home-2495556-18363-1

Aren’t these just the cutest stencils ever?  And there are 3 more 12″ x 12″ sheets to pick from.  In my video below I’ll do my review of Bo Bunny’s Stickable Stencils and share different types of mediums I used with them, how they remove and re-adhere to the backing sheet and how they store.  There are pros and cons to everything but I really like these new stencils they seemed easy to clean up and easy to use.  The one draw back I see is storing the 12″ x 12″ sheets somewhere but that’s just a matter of checking out my crafty space and seeing where they fit best.

After I’d played first offline and then in front of the camera for you I had these fun sheets of stencils and I knew I had to do something with them.  In this month’s Design Team supplies I also had a new stamp set from Penny Black called Let’s Chill. You know how cute Penny Black Penguins are and these guys are no exception I just knew I could marry the stencils with the stamps and come out with something super darling.  A little non-traditional colors for the Holidays but that’s ok with me.

P1140435

Now you tell me wasn’t this just a perfect match?  I love these little guys they just make me happy to play with them and watch them come to life with personalized scarves and hats.  The three sentiments are also included in the stamps set, what a deal!  I used Aleene’s Glitter Snow for the bottoms to give them ground to stand on instead of looking like they were floating in open space.  The penguins themselves were embossed with black embossing powder.  And if you notice the one in the middle uses Sizzix Step-Ups dies that I introduced last week.  I know bright pink for the Holidays but it sure worked with my stenciled backgrounds and the little penguins.

Cool Sizzix Center Step Card!

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

I received this totally cool Sizzix Center Step Card die and couldn’t wait to try it out. Technically, the name of the die is Card, Center Step so if you want to look it up by name, that is the appropriate one to use.( I will have the number for it in the product list below.)

IMG_8063

This die is VERY COOL! Everything you need to assemble the card is on one Bigz XL die except the embellishments to dress it up. You will need extended cutting mats. It is super easy to put together and took no time at all to complete this card once I decided what I wanted to embellish it with.

Sizzix-Bigz-XL-Card-Center-Step

 

I chose the Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden Collection to use on the card base which was just out of cream card stock. I love the color pallet of the Enchanted Garden and the embellishments!  The banner was cut with Sizzix Triplits 8pk Banners die set and the sentiment from Penny Black Special Wishes stamp set, which I must not have inked good enough in one spot, but oh well. I forgot to stamp the sentiment before adhering the label, so it was a done deal.

Really, all you do is cut the pieces and adhere in place! The score lines are already done for you when you cut the card base, so all you have to do is follow the score lines to fold. So easy and so cute! It folds up very nicely to fit into an A2 Envelope.

Product list:

Stamping Technique With Faber-Castell Gelatos

Monday, June 23rd, 2014

Today I made another folded card using a stamping technique with Faber-Castell Gelatos. This was a fun technique to try, but I do have to admit that it took me some practice and experimenting to get results that I liked. I still want to try a few other techniques, hopefully i will get better with practice!

Here is a list of supplies that I used that can be found at the Cut at Home website.

Faber-Castell Gelatos Designer Colors, Tropical – SKU:770162
Spellbinders Standard Circles, large – SKU:S4-114
Spellbinders Lables One – SKU:S4-161
Spellbinders Gold Labels One – SKU:S4-423
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Stamps 1 – SKU: IC0296
Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Stamps 2 – SKU:IC0297
BoBunny Primrose 12 x 12 Collection Pack – SKU:16016308

photo 1 (5)

Other items from my stash used were Glimmer Mist – pearl, Adhesive Lace and pearls.

I started with a simple fold card, the size of the card stock that I started with was 8.5 x 5.5, I scored the card stock at 4.25, then I scored the 4.25 section in the center. After the scoring was completed I folded the card, the 4.25 score line should be a valley fold and the other fold should be a mountain fold. This is the card base.

I also cut two pieces of patterned paper to add some interest to the card, I cut those so there was 1/4 inch border all around them.

Next is was time to create the center panel with the gelatos.

After I had finished stamping and coloring in my stamped image I misted the image with Pearl Glimmer mist to give it a nice shimmery look. When my image was finished I cut it out using the Spellbinder circle die set. Then I cut the labels and used the gold label pieces to add dimension and pattern to the labels. I layered the labels and centered the circle in side of the labels.

Next I ran the lace across the bottom of the card added the pearls and stamped the sentiment for the inside of the card.

Here is a look at the finished card:

And here is how the card looks opened:

And finally a look at the gelato stamped and colored area:

This was a fun project and it was very relaxing working with the gelatos, but as I found out practice makes perfect and don’t be afraid to play around with the gelatos to see what kind of interesting effects you can come up with! You can also go to the Cut@Home YouTube channel at the link below to see more techniques using Faber-Castell Gelatos!

Fancy Fold Card Using Bo Bunny Primrose Collection

Monday, June 16th, 2014

Today I wanted to try a new Fancy Fold card using BoBunny Primrose Collection and Spellbinders Die D-Lites Antique Corner die. Before we get started here is a list of the supplies that I used that are available on the Cut at Home website.

Spellbinders Die D-Lites, Antique Corner – SKU: S2-072
BoBunny Primrose 12 x 12 Collection Pack – SKU: 16016308
Sizzix Big Shot – SKU: 657900
Silhouette America Silhouette Cameo – SKU: SILHOUETTE-CAMEO-3T

Other supplies used: BoBunny Primrose Gems, White Card Stock, Washi tape and the Double Diamond Fold Card Template by Castlepark Designs, the template can be found at http://castleparkdesigns.wordpress.com

photo 1 (2)

My video this week walks you through how to make a fancy folded card using a double diamond fold card template, it really looks more complicated that it is.

For this card I used a piece of white card stock cut to 12″ x 7″, using a scoring board you can either mark 1 1/2 inch or as I did in the video just put a little mark there with the scoring board, next score at three inches and again at 4.5 inches. You will do the same on the other side of the card. Next you will score from the 1.5 inch mark to the 4.5 inch score line from top to bottom on a diagonal, you will do this again from the 4/5 inch to the 1.5 inch mark, this will create a diamond pattern, repeat on the other side. Finally when you look at the template you will see two lines that are in yellow, these pieces get cut off, I scored the line first so I knew where to cut it. Also on the template the different colors represent which way the paper gets folded, the blue lines are valley folds and the green lines are mountain folds.

Once you get all of the scoring and folding done you can cut the patterned paper pieces. I wanted to find an easy way to create the pieces so I decided to make a template for the pieces on my Silhouette. They came out very well and I can send anyone that is interested the cut files. If you do not have a silhouette you can cut the patterned paper a little smaller than the folded area to create a boarder.

Once I had all the pieces cut I adhered them to the card base, next I cut two of the Antique corners using my Sizzix Big Shot and placed them on the front of the card, then I cut an image on the Silhouette for the inside of the card, I used the print and cut feature for this image. Finally I added some Washi tape, a sticker boarder from the BoBunny 12″ x 12″ collection, and added the bling which is also from the BoBunny Primrose collection. Another helpful hint is I added four pieces of patterned paper to the back of the white card stock so when the card was folded it would show on the front instead of the white card stock, this gave the card a finished look.

Here is my finished card:

I really like how this card turned out, the next time I make it I think I am going to add a magnetic closure or something, maybe a twine tie to keep it closed, but it was a fun project! Here is another view with the card open.

I hope you like my project this week, please let me know if you would like the Silhouette files. Till next week, Thanks and Happy Scrappin!

“It’s A Boy!” Card Using Bo Bunny Our Lil’ Monster Collection

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

 

our lil monster

 

You might think that my “It’s A Boy!” card using Bo Bunny Our Lil’ Monster Collection is not the most traditional for a baby card, and it’s not, but it’s super cute! I am loving this collection so much for little boys! It’s bright, colorful, and it’s got the cutest little monsters! What else do you need?

Well, I have had a lot of people I know getting baby girls lately, so when I finally got the chance to make a baby boy card, I was thrilled to be able to do something boyish and bright. I just couldn’t bring myself to make a traditional baby blue card-nope, not happinin’! I also pulled out my Scor-Pal and Scor-Envi to make a matching envelope. So fun!

Thanks & Happy Scrappin’!
