Vintage Painted Autumn

Stampin' Up! Just Add Text and Vintage Leaves with Painted Autumn paper & Touches of Nature Elements - October 2017 designer series paper DSP sale - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey everyone! Here’s another one of the cards I made in my DSP (designer series paper) Facebook Live video yesterday.

A couple of tips for recreating this card:

*I used two designs from the Painted Autumn paper for this card. You can recreate this card using the same layout but changing up the paper — either use different designs from Painted Autumn, or use a different paper pack altogether. Just choose your card base and white (Whisper White or Very Vanilla) based on the colors in your DSP. Here I could have gone with Lemon-Lime Twist, Early Espresso, Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, Very Vanilla, or even Tangerine Tango for my card base, and the card would have had a completely different look. So play around with it.

*I stamped the leaf in Peekaboo Peach, then cut it out with the matching framelit (see supply list below). Then I used the pen end of my Tangerine Tango marker (available in the Brights pack of markers or the full set of Many Marvelous Markers) to draw in some more definition on some of the lines. My goal here was just a little more definition, to give the leaf a different look.

I tied the Touches of Nature Element to the leaf with Linen Thread, but you might want to add a dab of glue to the back of it, too, just in case.

*By the way, this is my customer thank you card for October, so if you’d like to receive one of these, just order from my online store in October! Make sure to use the host code (see below) when you shop so you get extra freebies from me.

Special Delivery triangle box

Stampin' Up! gift packaging - handmade triangle box for Hershey's nuggets - Merry Little Labels, Stitched Shapes framelits, Pretty Pines thinlits, boxwood wreaths, Mini Ornaments - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Hey! I’ve had this triangle box on my desk for a couple of months. I had it decorated but decided I didn’t like how it was decorated, so I un-decorated it and left it sitting there for a while. Then I suddenly grabbed it the other day, and voila. New Christmas box. This time I’m really happy with how it turned out.

The triangle box design is copied from this video by Sam Donald. She’s brilliant at boxes, and I cannot see in 3D, so I often CASE her box designs and decorate them in my own style. [Note: I use the Envelope Punch Board to round corners, and I use my Trimmer to cut and score for boxes, but you can also use the Simply Scored like Sam does.]

I wrapped the Cherry Cobbler 1/4″ Double-Stitched Ribbon around the box, then tied it. Before tying the bow, I laid Linen Thread across the criss-crossed part of the ribbon, then tied the bow. Then I tied the Linen Thread around the bow knot once, threaded on one of the Mini Ornaments, then tied a knot in the Linen Thread. I adore these ornaments! They’re made of some kind of hard plastic or glass and just the perfect size for gift packaging.

I attached the boughs (cut from Garden Green cardstock and Silver Foil Sheets with the Pretty Pines thinlits) with the Fine Tip Glue Pen, behind the bow, then attached the sentiment from Merry Little Labels with Dimensionals (only put Dimensionals on the part of the tag that is on the top flap — you don’t want your recipient to have to destroy this beautiful box to open it! Finally, I uncurled one of the Boxwood Wreaths embellishments and attached it (using Glue Dots) to the box using Glue Dots.

The box would fit 5-6 Hershey’s Nuggets, so it would be perfect for teacher’s gifts, fancy stocking stuffers, or just a little extra something under the tree.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Facebook Live – Beautiful Bouquet

Stampin' Up! Beautiful Bouquet bundle with Bouquet Bunch framelits and Lovely Words thinlits - Creativity Your Way Facebook Live session - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - #GDP093

Hey there! I decided to have a Creativity Your Way session in my Facebook Live video today. Creativity Your Way (which happens to be the title of this year’s Annual Catalog) means that whatever kind of crafter you are, and however you like to craft, you can do it with Stampin’ Up!. So I made a basic card, a stepped-up card, and an all-out card, all using the same stamps, dies, and colors.

I used the colors from this week’s Global Design Project color challenge for my cards. I’m BONKERS over this color combo. Three of my absolute faves.

I started with this clean and simple card using only stamps, ink, and rhinestones. So easy and fast!

For my second card, I stepped it up a little with a few die cuts and Dimensionals. Just a little more work to make quite an impact on the card! Extra texture and dimension are so easy with Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating bundles. The tiny HELLO sentiment was an “oops I forgot to add a sentiment before sticking on all these rhinestones”, but I think it works!

For my final card, I went all out. I added gorgeous designer series paper from the Naturally Eclectic bundle, more die cuts, stamping on the card base behind the paper, twine, and a wooden element. And then to top it off, I both stamped and die cut my sentiment.

I made a card liner for the all-out card using the same stamps and colors.
