Welcome, Baby Croghan!

Hello! I have a very special card to show you today, for a very special blog hop. You see, Lesley Croghan is having a baby girl next month, and Lori from Caffeinated Creativity is hosting this blog hop so we can all celebrate her bundle of joy together! I was on Lesley’s Dynamic Duos design team a few years ago, so I was invited to participate, and I’m so glad I could join in. I’m so happy for Lesley and her new baby girl! Congratulations, Lesley, and best wishes for a safe delivery and happy mama and baby! God bless your family! Here’s the card I made:

Stampin' Up! Nailed It stamp set - motion stamping - handmade baby card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This is the card I made in my live Facebook video Monday night. It was a late night but I managed to make a pretty fun baby card.

I wanted to make a baby card but didn’t really have a sentiment that would fit with the card, so I just wrote in my own with the pointy end of my Melon Mambo marker. Here’s the video. I *usually* do my live videos Mondays at 12:30 p.m. (CDT). If you’d like to watch live, make sure you Like my Facebook page and turn on notifications. You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel.

You Amaze Me, Alaska

Good afternoon from America!

I’m taking part in a very special blog hop today with the Aim for Alaska training group. This is a training put on by Kylie Bertucci to help us grow our businesses (Aim for Alaska means that we are trying to earn the fabulous Stampin’ Up! incentive trip for this year, which is an Alaskan cruise). I’ve learned so much about how to grow and run a successful business from top demonstrators all over the world, and I’m so grateful for this wonderful group!

The theme for our blog hop is Inspired by Alaska. When I think of Alaska, I think glaciers, mountains, reindeer, trees, and plaid, LOL.

Thank you, Jensen.

Tips for CASEing my card:

*My card base is Night of Navy, 4.25″ x 11″, scored at 5.5″.

*I cut a 4″-wide strip of the Carried Away designer series paper that is a Sale-A-Bration freebie. This paper coordinates perfectly with the Lift Me Up bundle and is only available free with a $50 purchase until the end of March.  After I cut this strip of paper, I used my Paper Snips to cut off everything above the mountains. I did cut around one tiny hot air balloon and cloud but cut off everything else above the mountains. I just love how this paper gives a full scene of nature and wildlife in such a small space.

*After I glued down the paper to the card base, I cut the piece of Whisper White paper. I wanted the paper 3/4″ wide on the right side and 1/2″ tall on top. I probably did it the hard way, so the easy way would be to cut a piece that is 4.25″ x 5.5″, then use the ruler on your Trimmer to cut across the top (leaving 1/2″ above the cut) 3.75″ (leave 3/4″ on the right edge), then turn your paper and cut all the way to the bottom edge. I am making it sound more difficult than it is. Pop the piece of white up on Dimensionals.

*I stamped the tree from the Peaceful Pines stamp set in Emerald Envy ink on Emerald Envy cardstock, then cut it out with the Perfect Pines framelits. That is on Dimensionals.

*The banner is from the Banners for You bundle. I stamped in Emerald Envy and Night of Navy, then cut the banner out with the matching framelit. Since I was adding this right on top of the tree and the white border, I used my glue for most of the banner but did put a Dimensional under the left banner flap so everything is even.

*The bow is Emerald Envy Solid Baker’s Twine.

*The extra clouds are stamped/die cut using the Lift Me Up bundle.

*To finish off the card, I added Wink of Stella (clear) to all of the mountain peaks and the clouds. I love the frost you can get from this glitter pen!

*Inside. This sentiment is also from the Banners for You bundle, but it is a curved stamp, meant to fit on one of the curvy banners. So I just straightened it out when I put it on the clear block. That’s one of my favorite things about photopolymer stamps!

I hope you like my card. Make sure to continue hopping around the world on this fabulous Aim for Alaska blog hop. Right now you’re at Sarah Fleming’s blog, so just keep clicking down the list until you hop all the way back to me.

That Thing You Did

Hey there! If you caught my Facebook Live video on Monday, you saw me make this card. I had just seen this sketch at the Global Design Project, and it really went well with the size of my sentiment and the beautiful flowers made from the new cardstock Lace Doilies.

Stampin' Up! All Things Thanks and Awesomely Artistic stamps with Lace Doilies - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This card is also a CASE of my card from yesterday that I made for Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlight. Lots of inspiration for this card. I used the same stamp set for this card, though a different stamp, and I made flowers from the doilies as I did in the other card.

Stampin' Up! All Things Thanks and Awesomely Artistic stamps with Lace Doilies - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I decided to use Mint Macaron, because I’m basically using it on everything until it retires at the end of May. I also used Wisteria Wonder, my least favorite Stampin’ Up! color (sorry, but everyone has a least favorite). And I used Tip Top Taupe, another retiring In Color; I rarely use this color, though I do like it. I just generally reach for Crumb Cake or Sahara Sand if I want a brown neutral.

International Blog Highlight — All Things Thanks

Stampin' Up! Lace Doilies sponged with Melon Mambo & Daffodil Delight ink - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey, there! Thanks for stopping by today! We are being highlighted internationally by Kylie Bertucci, and you can VOTE for my card. The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop in April, so please do go vote for me.

Stampin' Up! All Things Thanks stamps and Lace Doilies - Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Our theme for this highlight is using the stamp set All Things Thanks. This is a wonderful stamp set with so many gorgeous sentiments. We wanted to highlight how versatile it is.

Stampin' Up! All Things Thanks stamps and Lace Doilies - Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I used the MISTI to stamp my sentiment. I mounted the stamp, inked up the top third of it with Daffodil Delight, and stamped. I cleaned the stamp, then inked up the middle of the stamp with Melon Mambo. I didn’t try to be exact with where I inked the stamp, because I didn’t mind the Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo overlapping to make that vibrant orange. Finally, I cleaned the stamp again and inked the bottom of the stamp with Daffodil Delight. Lots of overlap of the two colors on this part. I cut out the sentiment with the Stitched Shapes framelits.

While I was playing around with the stamps and designing my card, the cardstock Lace Doilies caught my eye, and I decided to take a closer look. Then I started cutting them up. Then I got all sorts of ideas. Flowers, snowflakes, more flowers.

Stampin' Up! All Things Thanks stamps and Lace Doilies - Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlight - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

All of the flowers on my card are cut from the Lace Doilies. These are Whisper White on one side and Very Vanilla on the other side, and you can sponge the Whisper White side to create any color of doily that you want! I used two doilies for each flower. I sponged all but the centers with Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, and Bermuda Bay ink. I stacked the two layers with a tiny, cut-up Dimensional between them. I stuck Rhinestones in the center of each flower to cover up the hole (with exposed Dimensional behind it).

To finish off the card, I added a panel of Basic Black cardstock, embossed with the Softly Falling embossing folder, the Sale-A-Bration ribbon (discontinuing at the end of March!), and some Rhinestones.

Don’t forget to finish the inside of your card! I placed a doily flower in the lower left corner of my card and sponged Bermuda Bay on, then removed the flower.

Thanks for visiting my blog today; I hope you like my card. Make sure you head over to Kylie’s blog to vote for my card. I would love to be chosen to do the next international blog hop.

If you’re in the US, I would love to be your demonstrator! All the links to the products in my online store are listed below.

Cool treats, man

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats handmade birthday card - with Fine Tip Glue Pen and Sprinkles Embellishments - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

A couple of months ago, I participated in a swap by mail with other demonstrators. I never did blog about that card, so here it is. I made two different versions, because I had 23 of them to make, and I ran out of one of the sheets of the Tasty Treats paper.

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats handmade birthday card - with Fine Tip Glue Pen and Sprinkles Embellishments - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This is a Pear Pizzazz base with that gorgeous Tasty Treats paper. The Chocolate Chip paper is also from Tasty Treats. My ice cream cones are stamped in Crumb Cake, and the ice cream is Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach. I just took my color scheme right from the paper. The Chocolate Chip fudge is a die in the Cool Treats bundle. Cool, right? Ha, no pun intended.

This one has a Pool Party card base.

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats handmade birthday card - with Fine Tip Glue Pen and Sprinkles Embellishments - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I stamped the sentiment in Peekaboo Peach and the sprinkles in Watermelon Wonder and cut out the sentiment with one of the Stitched Shapes framelits. The strawberry is from the same bundle. I stamped the strawberry in Watermelon Wonder and the stem in Pear Pizzazz, then cut it out with the framelit. The framelit cuts little holes in the strawberry to look like seeds. Neato!

Stampin' Up! Cool Treats handmade birthday card - with Fine Tip Glue Pen and Sprinkles Embellishments - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

The real star of these cards is the fudge on top. I assembled the ice cream, then added the fudge, then covered it with glue from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Then I dropped the sprinkles into the glue while it was wet, then added a dot of glue for each of the sprinkles that went directly on the peach ice cream. They take a few hours to dry, due to the amount of glue on them, so I just left them overnight.

Wedding Wishes Box

Stampin' Up! wedding gift box - Stylish Stems framelits, Delicate Details Sale-A-Bration stamps, Rose Wonder - gift packaging - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I made this box a while back for my Display Stamper application, but I realized I never blogged about the box itself.

The first thing I did was cut the detailed flowers out of the right and left sides of a White Gift Box. I used the Stylish Stems framelits to cut out the flowers. NOW. Don’t do what I did. I kind of messed up my Big Shot and broke a little sliver off the detailed flower thinlit cutting these out. So if you want to do these with the cutouts, I suggest that you start with the platform and a cutting plate. Then add your box and the thinlit. Do not use the top cutting plate. I wouldn’t even use the Thin Die Adapter, really. These boxes are really thick. Just add pieces of cardstock until you get a sandwich that will cut the box but doesn’t feel like it’s going to break your Big Shot. But I used the top cutting plate, and now my Big Shot needs a tune-up. So take this post as a what not to do.

Oh, one tip, though. Put scrap cardstock between the bottom cutting plate and the white gift box. Otherwise, if your cutting plates are scratched up at all, you will get scratch imprints on the box.

Anyway, after I got the flowers cut out, I glued a piece of Falling in Love DSP to the inside of the box, so it shows through behind the flower. Then I stamped the lace from Delicate Details (Sale-A-Bration freebie!) down the center of the front and back of the box with Crumb Cake ink. And I just realized that I don’t have a picture of that! I will try to get one and add it to this post tomorrow. I dried the ink with my Heat Tool. The ink takes longer to dry on these shiny boxes, so you either wait a long time before flipping the box over and stamping the other side, or you hit it with the heat gun.

Stampin' Up! wedding gift box - Stylish Stems framelits, Delicate Details Sale-A-Bration stamps, Rose Wonder - gift packaging - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Next, I put the acetate sleeve onto the box. I glued a piece of Falling in Love paper to the top of the sleeve. I glued the Lace Doily on top of that. Next, and you can’t really see this, I cut out the smaller flower in the Stylish Stems framelits from Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper and glued that down. It’s right under the ribbon knot.

This is a terrible blog post. I’m sitting here telling you to just *trust me*, these things are on the box that I did a terrible job photographing.

The bright pink ribbon is that gorgeous Sale-A-Bration ribbon that I used in my FB Live video this week and in yesterday’s blog post. I used the Vanilla/Gold ribbon and painted on Melon Mambo ink using an Aqua Painter. When it was dry, I wrapped the organza ribbon and the metallic ribbon around the box together, then tied them in a knot together. Before I tightened the knot, I slipped in two strips of Gold Sequin Trim. I glued the wooden hearts together with the Tombow glue and tied them onto the ribbon using Linen Thread.

The banner under the sentiment is cut out of Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Bunch of Banners framelits. I glued that down to the sleeve. The sentiment is from the Rose Wonder stamp set, a set I got for the sentiments alone. I don’t know why it came out this color in the photos — it’s Melon Mambo, not Freaky Fuchsia. I cut it out using a Stitched Shapes framelit, then added it on top of the banner with Dimensionals.

Okay, this blog post is a mess. Sorry! I hope you like the box anyway and just take my word for it.

Thank you, Avant Garden

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden stamp set with One Big Meaning - Sale-A-Bration freebie with $50 purchase - handmade thank you card - #GDP077 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! I made a couple of quick cards to play along with the Global Design Project color challenge this week, and I made one of them during a Facebook Live video.

The challenge kind of stumped me. I even did the funny head-tilt that dogs do when they’re confused when I saw the colors, because they’re colors I would never have put together.

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden stamp set with One Big Meaning - Sale-A-Bration freebie with $50 purchase - handmade thank you card - #GDP077 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

For my free choice color, I chose Tangerine Tango, because I love it with Peekaboo Peach. I ended up LOVING this color combination. I’ll definitely use it again.

Stampin' Up! Avant Garden stamp set with One Big Meaning - Sale-A-Bration freebie with $50 purchase - handmade thank you card - #GDP077 - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I made two versions of this card. The first one uses Whisper White cardstock with Silver/White ribbon and rhinestones. The second one uses Very Vanilla cardstock with Gold/Vanilla ribbon and pearls. I love them both. Which one do you prefer? I’d love for you to leave me a comment with your favorite.

Jar of Thanks

Stampin' Up! Jar of Love bundle and Cottage Greetings - handmade thank you card - clean and simple card - CAS - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Every now and then, it’s nice to cut back on the frills and make a clean, simple, and gorgeous card.

Stampin' Up! Jar of Love bundle and Cottage Greetings - handmade thank you card - clean and simple card - CAS - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This card is almost all stamping. Just a couple of little die cuts using the Everyday Jars framelits.

Tips for CASEing:

*I stamped the stems in Old Olive twice, then Pear Pizzazz twice. You could also leave out the Pear Pizzazz and use Old Olive stamped off for your lighter shade. So stamp a stem in Old Olive, then stamp again without reinking. Do this twice.

*The flower is stamped in three colors and is three different stamps. The largest area is Blushing Bride, the shaded pink area is stamped in Flirty Flamingo, and the little doo-dads are stamped in Soft Suede.

Stampin' Up! Jar of Love bundle and Cottage Greetings - handmade thank you card - clean and simple card - CAS - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

*I used my MISTI to position my “thanks” stamp, from the Cottage Greetings stamp set. I laid everything out, placed the stamp, removed the layers, then stamped the card base. Since there are few layers and nothing is on Dimensionals (WHAT?!), you could leave the layers on while the card is in the MISTI. I wouldn’t attempt that with a photopolymer stamp, though, since the foam layer would be in the MISTI, and there is a higher chance you’d blob ink from the MISTI cover all over your layers.

I just stamped a stem on the inside of the card, in Old Olive.

And that’s it!
