Stampin’ Blends Marker Club: Magical Day

The January projects for my Stampin’ Blends Marker Club were made with the Magical Day stamp set. This has been, by far, my favorite month for my Blends Club! I just had a blast designing the projects. We’ve been building everyone’s marker collection, 5-6 markers at a time, so we have quite a collection now to incorporate into all the projects. I will be taking sign-ups in March for my next club, which will start in April.

Ink & Inspiration: Celebrate the Memories

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We are a small group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world who love to share our creativity with others. You’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Stampin' Up! Petal Passion paper, Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack, Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit, Picture Perfect Birthday - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

This month’s theme is “Love Me Tender”, so I made a 12″x12″ scrapbook page of my sweetie and me.

I used Powder Pink cardstock for my base, because I wanted to use the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack in my layout. The big piece of designer series paper is from the Petal Passion paper. All of the other papers are from the Memories & More Card Pack.

These flowers are a sticker from the Card Pack. I colored them using a Blender Pen and Powder Pink and Lemon-Lime Twist ink. The hearts are also stickers from the Card Pack. I heat embossed (in Silver) “celebrate the good stuff” from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set and punched it out with the Pretty Label Punch.

The die cut “memories” is from the Card Pack  also, and the washi tape is from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.

The numbers here are also from the Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.

I finished off the page with clear shapes from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.

Priceless Friend

Hello, stamping friends! Happy Saturday! We’re having a pretty low-key day, just hanging around the house and cleaning. My husband is working on the Little Passports boxes with the kids (they got subscriptions for Christmas), and I’ve finished deep-cleaning one room. Just 10 or so to go!

I made today’s card using the sketch from this week’s Stamp Ink Paper challenge. Great sketch!

Stampin' Up! You're Priceless with Eclectic Layers Thinlits and Brusho on Glossy Cardstock - handmade friend or thank you card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

I’ve just recently gotten this stamp set, and I see so many possibilities with it. I can’t wait to color it with my Blends. But this time, I used Brusho for the background. Totally gaga over this look! This was my first time to play with Brusho on Glossy White Cardstock. You get a much different look here from using Brusho on Watercolor Paper! I’m getting so many different looks from this one product and just having so much fun. Obsessed. I used the Prussian Blue and Brilliant Red and spritzed liberally with water. I love how the outside areas look more spritzy (totally a word), and the middle looks more solid. But look at the color variation, even in the middle!

I embossed the diamonds all over the background with Silver Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I also die cut one diamond out of Silver Foil Sheets using the Eclectic Layers thinlits (which are actually available in a bundle with the Oh So Eclectic stamps, or separately if you prefer). The Night of Navy circle is punched with the 2″ circle punch. I embossed the sentiment and flagged it with the Banner Triple Punch.

I had fun with the ribbons. I pulled apart the Sweet Sugarplum 3/8″ Striped Grosgrain ribbon and tied the threads in a knot. Then I took the Basic Gray ribbon that comes in the free Sale-A-Bration ribbon pack and pulled on a few threads to get it to cinch up like this. I threaded that ribbon through the loophole in the other one and glue dotted them to the card. Fun!

Inside, I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock and embossed one more diamond on it.

Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop: Heart Happiness Box

Hi! 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 Love, and I’m sure you’ll find tons of love-themed projects to inspire you in your crafting.

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness & Teeny Tiny Wishes handmade treat box for York peppermint patties - Valentine's Day - Love - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts #SDBH

I bled to bring you this darling little treat box. That’s how much I love y’all.

Other than my thumb, which sustained a stupidity-related injury and which for the moment has limited mobility, I had fun making this little box. It fits one little Valentine-themed York peppermint patty. Here are the dimensions:

On the right you can see how I cut and scored the cardstock to make the box.

Here’s the box after cutting and scoring. The notch for opening the box isn’t on here but it would be punched with the 1/2″ circle punch on the edge that’s at the bottom of the picture (opposite the edge with rounded corners).

Here’s what the box looks like after you assemble it (I used Tear & Tape) and before you close it.

I used the Heart Happiness stamp set to decorate the box. Make sure to do the stamping on the box before you assemble it. For the solid heart with the imprint of the flower, I used two stamps from the set. There is a solid heart stamp and a little flower stamp. I mounted both stamps, then inked the solid heart up with Flirty Flamingo ink, then kissed the flower stamp to the heart to take the ink off of the heart and leave the imprint, then stamped.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you like my little treat box and that you’ve been inspired to go make something today. You are currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.
