I'm an independent demonstrator for Stampin' Up! and love to teach others how to make lovely paper projects. I always have ink-stained fingers (I'm okay with that). I also knit.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop

Hi! Welcome to the Crazy Crafters Blog Hop, with special guest… ME?! Are you kidding me??! I seriously almost peed my pants when Kylie Bertucci asked me to be the special guest on this week’s blog hop. The Crazy Crafters are Kylie’s Stampin’ Up! team. What an honor to hop with this amazingly talented team! For the blog hop, everyone is CASEing one of my cards (Copy and Selectively Edit / Copy and Share Everything). I can’t wait to see which cards the Crazy Crafters chose to CASE and what they do with them!

For my card, I chose one from over three years ago. I made this card in August 2014, and it’s been one of my top pinned cards ever. So I wanted to see what I could do to update it.

As you can see, I kept the layout, the color scheme, the gold embossing, and the kind of Nordic feel of the card. Everything I used on the previous card is retired except for the colors, so I kept Real Red, Calypso Coral, Whisper White, and Gold for my new card and updated everything else with current products. I absolutely love the Musical Season bundle this year! It is gorgeous. My sentiment and the snowflakes are from the Christmas Pines stamp set. This time for the designer paper, I used the Quilted Christmas paper and embossed the paper with the Quilt Top embossing folder.

The card is square (5″x5″), so I needed to make an envelope to go with it. I kept with the music theme and used the Merry Music Paper. It’s lightweight, so it is perfect for making envelopes with the Envelope Punch Board. After I punched and scored the envelope, I sponged it with a Sponge Brayer and Calypso Coral ink. I added the Whisper White piece for writing the address and stamped it and added washi tape to match the card.

Merry Little Plaid

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas card - Merry Little Labels with Merry Little Christmas paper, Christmas Around the World paper, 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Today’s card uses a different plaid piece of the Christmas Around the World paper — this one has Old Olive, Real Red, and Basic Black. So that’s where I got my color scheme. I also added a piece of Merry Little Christmas paper. I love how this piece of paper can be used for any occasion, as it’s not overtly Christmas — out of context, it’s just a piece of Old Olive and Whisper White paper. So pretty.

The sentiment is, once again, from the Merry Little Labels stamp set. That gorgeous bow is the Old Olive 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon. This ribbon is so soft and seriously easy to tie. You say be a pretty bow, and it obeys. I love it.

Fa la la la la

Stampin' Up! handmade Christmas card - Carols of Christmas with Quilt Top Embossing Folder, Merry Music paper, Christmas Around the World paper, Stitched Shapes framelits - Deck the Halls - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Can you tell I just can’t stop with the Christmas making this week? Christmas is my favorite for papercrafting, both cards and scrapbooks. And now there’s a Holiday Catalog to play with so… #sorrynotsorry.

I am once again using the Christmas Around the World paper on this card. The Real Red and Whisper White striped paper is one of the sheets in that pack. The fa la la la la paper is from the Merry Music Specialty paper. This paper is AWESOME. It’s thinner, so perfect for cards, scrapbooks, and even making your own envelopes with the Envelope Punch Board.

The black piece is embossed with the new Quilt Top embossing folder, and the sentiment is from the Carols of Christmas stamp set. I love this stamp so much.

I hope you like today’s card! You can find all the products I used to make the card in my online Stampin’ Up! store.

Berry Sweet

Hi, and welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Something Different. A fun or fancy fold, or something besides a card. I went waaaaay out of my comfort zone and finally tackled an idea that’s been floating around in my head for months.

Stampin' Up! Coffee Cafe bundle with Cool Treats, Cupcake Cutout thinlits, Coffee Cups framelits - treat packaging - teachers gifts - Ice Cubes gum packaging - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

 

I bought this container of Ice Cubes in May. May! I’d seen the ice cubes in the Coffee Cafe stamp set, so when I saw Ice Cubes at the grocery store, I grabbed them, planning to do some kind of fancy packaging for them. It’s been sitting in a basket on my desk for months. Long enough that the container is now empty. I have no idea how that happened. >.>

So here’s what I came up with. I cut a strip of 2″ x 12″ (actually, just a hair under 2″ wide) Whisper White cardstock and punched both ends with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch. I stamped the long wrapper with a stamp from Touches of Texture, in both Berry Burst and Daffodil Delight. I scored the middle two inches of the strip (I’m sorry, I didn’t get a measurement) to have a defined bottom for the treat wrapper. I attached the Ice Cubes container to the wrapper with Glue Dots, but if you’re going to actually give this to someone, you’d be better off using hot glue, or maybe lots of Tear & Tape. Super helpful, I know. Then I tied the ends together with the Berry Burst 1/2″ Finely Woven Ribbon. I added a strip of Silver Mini Sequin Trim to the bow before tightening the loops.

The cups on the front use the Coffee Cafe stamps and dies. The frozen lemonade on the left is made with Daffodil Delight cardstock (behind) and Vellum Cardstock on top. The “you’re” comes from a stamp in the Cool Treats stamp set (“you’re the cherry to my sundae” — I stamped it, then cut out the word I wanted), and the “sweet” is die cut using the Cupcake Cutouts framelits. I finished off the front with some Metallic Sequins.
