SU277 Bliss

Stamps: Bliss (SAB 2011).

Paper: Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze, Very Vanilla, page from an old book.

Ink: Tangerine Tango, Cajun Craze.

Accessories: Very Vanilla ribbon, rhinestones, sponges.

Punches: Spiral, Elegant Butterfly.

Because I used a page from an old book, I wanted to strengthen the side that I was going to punch so I scored the left side at ½” then glued it to the wrong side. 

Once dry, I cut the page to 3-1/4” wide by 5” long.  Rip the top, bottom and right side about ¼”.  Sponge all edges in Tangerine Tango.  Punch straight edge with the Spiral punch. 

Stamp the bottom of the Tangerine Tango card with the flourish in Tangerine Tango ink.  Adhere the newsprint panel on an angle to the card front. 

Cut a Very Vanilla panel at 2-1/2” square.  Stamp flourish in Tangerine Tango ink towards the top and the left.  Ink Bliss with Cajun Craze and stamp at the bottom.  Sponge edges in Cajun Craze.  Mount onto a Cajun Craze panel 2-3/4” by 3-1/2” long.  Cut ribbon 4” long and tape ends to the back of the panel.

Adhere panel about ½” from right side of card.  Cut another piece of ribbon 4” long and tie a knot around previous ribbon.  Trim if necessary. 

Stamp butterfly on Very Vanilla with Cajun Craze ink.  I know the Elegant Butterfly doesn’t fit this butterfly but I used it anyways.  Sponge edges with Cajun Craze ink.  Curl the wings.  Adhere to the card.  Add rhinestones.

Workshop Cards W154, W155, W156, W157

Here are some cards we made at Joanne’s workshop.  She always has a lot of choices for us but these are the ones I chose.

Workshop Card W154

Paper: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Mossy Meadow, Candy Lane DSP.
Ink: Real Red marker, Early Espresso, Stampin’ Chalk Marker.
Accessories: Dimensionals, 3/8″ Stitched satin Ribbon, pencil crayons, Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, baby wipe, sponge.
Dies: Stitched Shapes Framelit, Layering Framelit.
Stamped Father Christmas with Early Espresso ink on Crumb Cake card stock. I used ordinary pencil crayons to add the color and the White Stampin’ Chalk Marker to color the furs on his suit and his beard.
I cut him out with the largest oval Stitched Shapes Framelit die and sponged with Early Espresso ink, matted it on an Oval Layering Framelit die cut from Mossy Meadow.  Added Dimensionals
I inked the top image on the card front with Early Espresso ink, then removed the ink from Christmas Greetings with a baby wipe, used the marker-to-rubber inking technique with my Real Red marker.  I also used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to be sure it all lined up.  Sponged edges with Early Espresso ink.
Father Christmas stamp set can be found in the 2016 Holiday Catalog.

Simple Pillow Top Technique - One Hour Card Class 022 - OHCC022

Stamps: Festival of Trees (retired) or Peaceful Pines, Greetings of the Season - for the inside (retired).  A phrase from Peaceful Pines would work for the inside too.

Ink: Pool Party, Basic Gray, Real Red, Garden Green, Versamark.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Real Red, Garden Green, Pool Party, Silver Glimmer, 8” square of freezer paper.

Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Fine Tip Glue Pen, Tombow Glue, glue dots, envelope punch board, Stampin’ Trimmer, scissors, bone folder, pencil, Sponge, Dimensionals, Simply Scored Scoring Tool, silver embossing powder, Music Note Stampin’ Around standard wheel and handle (retired), silver metallic thread, Silver Sparkle Dazzling Details glitter glue, Christmas napkin, Wink of Stella.

Punches: Scallop Tag Topper, Tree Punch, Itty Bitty Accents for stars.

NOTE: ‘This Christmas’ DSP from the Annual 2016- 2017 catalogue has sheet music if you don’t have the Music Notes wheel.

Prepare card by cutting red cardstock at 4-1/4” x 8-1/2”.  Fold in half to create a top fold card – a bone folder gives you a crisp fold.  Stamp and sign the back.  Set aside.

Cut a white panel at 5-1/4” x 4” for the inside of the card.  Sponge edges in Pool Party.  Fade out 3 Christmas trees in the corner in green ink.  Stamp a phrase in red ink and adhere to the inside of the card.  Set aside. 

Stamp the little birdie on white cardstock with red ink.  Color with Wink of Stella.  Cut out and set aside.

Start with a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Pool Party card stock for the pillow-top layer.  Score diagonally at ¾” in both directions, flip the layer over so that the raised score lines are showing.  This subtle texture is what makes this the simple version of the technique.  

Wrap 15” silver trim around the panel about 1-3/4” from the bottom and tie a knot.  Set aside.

Cut White card stock at 2” by 3-3/4”.  Use the Music Note wheel with Basic Gray ink to cover.  Punch with the tag punch.  Sponge with Basic Gray ink.  Tie a knot with 5” of green ribbon through the tag.  Set aside. 

Cut green card stock at 2” by 3-3/4” and punch with the tag punch.  Adhere tags together with a peek-a-boo look.  Adhere tags to Pool Party panel.  Adhere to the card front.  Set aside. 

Stamp one tree on Garden Green card stock and another on Real Red card stock with Versamark.  Heat emboss with silver, then punch them out with the coordinating Tree Punch.  Adhere the trees together and pop up with Dimensionals.   Add to front of tags. 

Tie the silver cord into a bow.  Add a glue dot to the little birdie and adhere to the bow. 

Add tiny dabs of Silver glitter glue at each score intersection.  Give the glue about an hour dry time to avoid smearing.

Add Silver Glimmer stars for sparkle.

Using a Christmas Napkin to make an Envelope

Turn iron on a medium-high setting. 

Cut the freezer paper 8” square – napkin should be at least 10” square.

Separate the printed layer of the napkin from the others. If you miss a layer, the printed napkin will be separated from the freezer paper and won't adhere when heat is applied.

Gently press the napkin to remove fold lines.

Place freezer paper on the ironing board with the shiny side of the freezer paper facing up. 

Place the wrong side of the napkin on top of the freezer paper.

Put your iron in one place for a few seconds, lift it up, don’t slide it, and put it down again somewhere else.  Overlap your pressings.

Turn paper over and press again.

Cut excess napkin flush with the freezer paper and iron it again. 

Complete using the Envelope Punch Board.

Milestone Birthday – 12 years old – B12a

I searched the internet for a guitar template.  Lots of them out there but I chose this one then I kind of followed StampinBerry’s guitar as a ‘get me going’.  I glued the word window punch to the guitar, loosely attached my brads then wrapped the cord around them before closing the brads tightly.  I used the Mat Pack and piercer to help me align the brads.  Both the #12 (size 72) and ‘U Rock’ (size 48) were done on the computer in the LilSister font.

Sing a song of Birthdays
Full of fun and cheer
And may you keep on having them
For many a happy year. Happy 12th birthday!

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, white.

Ink: black, Early Espresso.

Stamp: Sanded.

Accessories: sponge, brads, silver cord, soft suede marker, Mat Pack.

Punches: 1.75” circle, word window, 1.25” circle.

Paint Chip Card - One Hour Card Class 017 OHCC017

Cardstock: Tangerine Tango, White, Island Indigo, Crushed Curry, Black (or whatever colors match your paint chip).

Stamp Sets: Something to say (Happy Birthday), Timeless Treasures, Petite Petals, Smarty Pants for inside (retired), a signature stamp like Creatively Yours or an address label.

Ink: Black, Gray.

Accessories: Snail Adhesive, Stampin’ Sponge, Gently Falling Embossing Folder, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Multipurpose Liquid Glue, rhinestones, envelope, Stampin’ Trimmer, scissors, bone folder, Coastal Cabana Thick Bakers Twine, Tangerine Tango Bakers Twine, Little Numbers Thinlits, paper piercer tool, fine tip glue pen.

Punch: Little Accents pack, Petite Petals, word window, 1/8” circle.

Prepare card by cutting orange cardstock at 5.5” x 8.5”.  Fold in half to create a side fold card – a bone folder gives you a crisp fold.  Stamp and sign the back.  Ink the grunge stamps in gray ink, stamp off on scrap paper then stamp the front edges.    Set aside.

Cut bottom strip off the paint card.  Cut the top into a tag with the template.  Punch the hole.  Sponge edges black.  Punch a flower from each color of the paint chip – make sure the middle flower is punched to the far right.  Curl the petals with a bone folder.  Adhere the tag to a 2-1/4” x 4” black mat.  Re-punch the hole.  Add 4” cabana twine.  Tie a bow around it with orange twine.  Punch 3 circles from yellow and adhere to the center of the flowers on the tag.  Set aside. 

Cut a panel 5-1/4” x 4” from white cardstock for the inside.  Grunge the bottom with a border in gray ink.  Add dots in orange.  Sponge edges in blue.  Punch 3 flowers from the discarded paint strip and adhere over the stamped grunge.  Add yellow circle centers to each flower.  Stamp a phrase in gray.  Use Snail Adhesive to adhere panel to the inside of the card.  Set aside.

Cut a strip of blue cardstock 1” wide by 5-1/2”.  Cut one end into a flag.  Sponge edges in black.  Run through the embossing folder with sponged edges facing the Sizziz logo.  Adhere about ½” from fold of card.  Set aside.

Cut a strip of yellow cardstock 1-3/8” wide by 5-1/2”.  Cut one end into a flag.  Sponge edges in black.  Run through the embossing folder with sponged edges facing the Sizziz logo and the majority of the dots at the flag end.  Adhere about 1” from fold of card.  Trim tops even with card and re-sponge.  Set aside.

Adhere tag to the card front.  I like to add a little liquid glue behind the twine to hold it in place.  Trim twine.  Set aside.

Stamp 3 dotted flowers with black ink on to orange cardstock and punch out.  Punch 3 small black flowers.  Curl all petals with the bone folder.  Adhere blue flowers to the center of the orange ones.  Arrange in a pleasing manner to the card front.  Add the black flowers – may have to remove one petal from some of the black flowers so they tuck a little better under the orange flowers.  Set aside.

Stamp Happy Birthday on white cardstock with black ink.  Punch out and cut the words apart.  Sponge edges in black ink.  Use the Thinlits to cut 40th from orange cardstock.  Remove from the dies using the paper piercer tool.  Use the fine tip glue pen to adhere in a pleasing manner to the tag.

Repeat the grunge stamping on the envelope front.  Use the dotted flower stamp for the orange flowers.

SU275 Bliss

Paper: Marina Mist, White.

Stamps: Bliss.

Ink: Marina Mist, Crumb Cake.

Accessories: Gently Falling EF, mounts, sponge, rhinestones, linen thread, Framed Tulips EF, ribbon from my stash.

Punches: Elegant Butterfly, large oval, scallop oval, 1/16” circle.

I started out by cutting my white panel larger than the embossing folder (4.5 x 6”) then I lightly sponged the edges.

I cut the second white panel to fit inside the tulips – about 4-3/8 x 3-1/8”.  I did the stamping on it and sponged the edges before putting it through the embossing folder.

Added ribbon to the smaller panel about 1-1/4” from bottom.  Trimmed the larger panel then adhered the smaller panel to it.

Adhered the panel to my card front and completed it.  I don’t think the Elegant butterfly punch that I used is for this butterfly but it was too tiny to hand cut!
