October Paper Crafting Blog Hop


Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the October Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sue McDonald's blog. Welcome one and all.

This month we are featuring fall-themed projects or projects demonstrating Stampin' Up!'s fabulous pattern paper called Designer Series Paper (DSP). It is not a secret that select packages of DSP are on sale this month at a 15% discount.

For my cards today I decided to use the Life is Beautiful Stamp Set, designed by Million Sales Achiever LeeAnn Graff, using both a fall theme and Plaid Tidings DSP.

I cannot believe I waited this long to use this stamp set. When I first saw the bird house in this stamp set, I had to have it. Now I have found that I love this tree! For the leaves I used a group of colors from a color challenge last week (The Paper Players Color Challenge PP512: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Mossy Meadow and Cinnamon Cider). The black plaid strip along the left side is a 3/4" strip from the workshop cards we made this past Saturday.

This weekend I watched a video where LeeAnn Graff shows several cards she designed using her stamp set. In one of her cards she used purple for the leaves. I thought I should try it - I used Rich Razzleberry which coordinates with this strip from the Plaid Tidings DSP.

The Plaid Tidings 6" x 6" DSP is from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (MC pp. 56-57). Versatile and adorable patterned paper!

These cards are fairly simple to recreate, but if you need measurements, just let me know. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!

Do not forget to check out the great project by our next blog hopper, Maureen Rauchfuss.

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring So Sentimental Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. Super busy, crafty weekend for me. How about you? I did not want to miss posting this week so this is a quick card I made for some yummy, pumpkin pie gifting this Thanksgiving holiday. For today's card I used the heart punches for the sentiment. Although I tried to keep this card simple, I did sneak in a strip of cardstock with the stitched edge from the large rectangle die. Once again, I am highly recommending that you add to your collection the Heart Punch Pack for quick layering.

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11" sheet, scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Whisper White cardstock. The mat is Pumpkin Pie cardstock (cut 4" x 5 1/4"). The pattern paper is a sheet of Pumpkin Pie from the Regals 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper (cut 3 3/4" x 5") then trim off 1 3/4" and pick which side of the pattern paper goes where! The heart on the sentiment build is from the Dog Punch. Super cute!.

I think you should give this card a try!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring So Sentimental

Hello, my crafty friends. What crafty projects were you working on for World Card Making Day? Don't forget to send out those cards this week. #makeacardsendacard 

Simple Stamping Challenge for October is to create a Thank You card with only stamps, ink, paper, and ribbon. Ribbon is always a nice way to add texture to your projects. 

#simplestamping

This card uses a note card for the base, or create your own (5" x 7", scored in the center at 3 1/2") with Whisper White cardstock. The mat is a piece of pattern paper from Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series Paper (3 1/2" x 4"), leaving 1" along the bottom of the note card to stamp the sentiment from the So Sentimental Stamp Set. I masked the words above and below so it fits perfectly.

I wanted to use the Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon on my card, but I felt like it was "lost" in the background, so I gently pressed the ribbon in my Mossy Meadow ink pad and, viola, created my own matching ribbon!

Give this super #simplestamping card a try!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

September Paper Pumpkin Alternate Project

Hello, my crafty friends. Hope everyone had a fun, crafting weekend. Today I wanted to share an alternate card using the September Paper Pumpkin kit.

The card base is a top fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11", scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Mango Melody cardstock. The mat is Cajun Craze (cut 4" x 5 1/4"). All of the build pieces are from the Hello Pumpkin kit. I just love the pre-cut pumpkins, flowers and leaves in fall colors.

Be sure to break out your crafting spirit this Saturday, October 3, for World Cardmaking Day. #WCMD2020 I am planning to craft that morning so log into Facebook page and send me a message with a picture of your craft projects.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Pine Tree Punch

Hello, my crafty friends. What crafty projects have you been working on this past week? The Simple Stamping Challenge for September is to create a holiday or New Year's card with only stamps, ink, paper, and punches!! Yes-s-s-s!! Punches!! Punches are one of my favorite crafting tools. They really take your project up a notch. For today's card I used my favorite punch - Pine Tree Punch - and two circle punches (2 1/2" Circle Punch, 2" Circle Punch). I highly recommend for your collection all of the circle punches for quick layering.
#simplestamping

The card base is a side fold A2 (8 1/2" x 11", scored at 4 1/4", cut at 5 1/2") in Mossy Meadow cardstock. I created my own pattern paper using the "HO HO HO" sentiment stamp from the Perfectly Paired Stamp set (Whisper White cardstock/Mossy Meadow ink) for the top piece and the Buffalo Check Background Stamp (Mossy Meadow cardstock/Tuxedo Black ink) for the lower piece. The collection of punched pine trees (Whisper White cardstock/Mossy Meadow, Mossy Meadow cardstock) are staggered along the lower left side.

The tree tops along the bottom of the "Merry Christmas" sentiment make this card super cute (Whisper White and Real Red cardstock/Real Red ink/Mossy Meadow ink).

Give this super #simplestamping card a try!

September Paper Crafting Blog Hop

Hello, my crafty friends. Welcome to the September Paper Crafting Blog Hop! I am participating in this blog hop with fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators from across the globe! You might be starting the blog hop right now, or you may be coming from Sue McDonald's blog (great project, Sue!). Welcome one and all.

The theme this month is punches!! How lucky can I be? I have been featuring cards and projects using punches exclusively ever since we began the lockdown for the pandemic since many of my class-attending, now virtual class-attending customers prefer punches over dies.

For my cards today I am using 4 basic punches (2 each card for a layering effect) that I highly recommend everyone should have in their collection, plus the Pine Tree Punch, which coordinates with the Perfectly Plaid Stamp Set (AC p. 60). The first card uses the 2 1/4" and 2" circle punches (AC p. 165) for the sentiment build, and the second card uses the Heart Punch Pack which is a current bundle too (AC p. 168, Heartfelt Bundle).
Card #1

Card #2

The DSP is Heartwarming Hugs from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (MC p. 9). Super adorable patterned paper - it was too hard to resist for me!

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! These cards are fairly simple to recreate, but if you need measurements, just let me know. Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring By The Dock Stamp Set v2.0

Hello, my crafty friends! This week I have created another quick and easy, or simple stamping card using the By The Dock stamp set. We will be creating this card together on our virtual workshop via Facebook Live (my business page, Saturday, September 19). All the cards will be using the By The Dock Stamp Set.


The dock is inked in Early Espresso and stamped slightly off the bottom left side of the front panel (Whisper White CS, cut 5" x 3 3/4"). I used the Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Marker to color the dock. The waves are inked in Balmy Blue. I stopped the waves about midway in order to leave room for the sentiment. The sentiment die is from the Well Written dies, but you could use any stamp sentiment.

The boat is also inked in Early Espresso and stamped on a piece of Whisper White CS (cut 3" x 2"). I used the Night of Navy and Crumb Cake Stampin' Write Markers to color the boat. The waves are again stamped in Balmy Blue. The panel is a build on Early CS and Balmy Blue CS, graduating in 1/8" increments, and adhered to the top right side of the front panel using dimensionals. Maybe too many birds? Or should there be more? No fussy cutting this time around.

Here's a picture of the inside panel and sentiment.


The By The Dock stamp set has been a very popular stamp set with my customers. If you did not order this stamp set (AC p. 112 | bundle pricing no longer available), hurry and place your order today so that you have it in time for the workshop on the 19th. The September Host Code and my personal product share bonus is listed below.

As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!

Quick and Easy Handmade Card Featuring By the Dock Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends! I truly hope you are having a fabulous Wednesday. As you know, I have changed my workshops and blog format to accommodate the new ways we are "gathering" to craft. Our virtual workshop via Facebook Live on my business page (Saturday, September 19) will be all about the By The Dock Stamp Set and making quick and easy, or simple stamping cards. This has been a very popular stamp set with my customers. If you did not order this stamp set (previously a bundle), hurry and place your order today so that you have it in time for the workshop on the 19th. The September Host Code and my personal product share bonus is listed below. Let's take a look at my card.


For this card, I have used the main images from the stamp set. On the front panel, the dock is tucked into the scalloped circle frame and hangs just a tad off the right side of the circle build. The front panel of Crumb Cake is cut down to 2 1/2" (removing 1 3/4" to reveal the inside panel). The panel mat is a beautiful strip of the Just Jade from the 2020-22 In Color 6" x 6" DSP (cut 2" x 5") layered on a Misty Moonlight strip (cut 2 1/4" x 5 1/4").

For the inside, I created a row of oars along the left side. On the right is a strip from the B side of a sheet from the Flowers for Every Season 6" x 6" DSP. The row boat (as well as the dock) were stamped on Crumb Cake with Memento Ink. The dock is colored using the Light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blends and the boat is colored with the Light Real Red Stampin' Blends. (The dock and the boat were fussy cut, but the coordinating Dockside dies would certainly be an asset!) Here's a full picture of the inside panel.


As always, thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you and your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it!.

Stamp On!!

August Simple Stamping Challenge Featuring Banner Year Stamp Set

Hello, my crafty friends. I have talked to a lot of you recently, but for my friends that I haven't been able to talk with - I am wondering how everyone is doing during these crazy times. Above all, I sure hope you have been able to find some time for crafting! The Simple Stamping Challenge for August is to create a project with only stamps, ink and paper, including Designer Series Paper, and the theme is open to either spooky or whimsical projects. I thought it would be fun to try out some of the cute stamps from the new Banner Year Stamp Set, p. 65 from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog, for a Halloween card.

#simplestamping
#simplestamping

The card base is a side fold A2 (cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored at 4 1/4") in Blackberry Bliss cardstock. I paired several of the "spooky" images - the bat, the pumpkin and the jack-o-lantern face, the spider web - with the jar image from the Lots to Celebrate Stamp Set, p. 64, to create this row of spookiness on Whisper White cardstock, cut 4 1/4" x 2 1/4". I used the masking technique to hang the spider webs around the jars. The mat is the Mango Melody sheet from the Brights 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, cut precisely 5 1/8" x 3 1/4" to fit perfectly between the circle pattern.

The sentiment stamp was originally two lines, but I stamped them separately along a straight line (using the masking technique again) to create the long sentiment and flagged the ends. As you may have noticed, the Banner Year Stamp Set is bundled with the Banners Pick a Punch that would also be perfect for flagging the ends, but since this is a Simple Stamping challenge, I hand cut the flags.

Give this super simple card a try!

Thank you for stopping by my blog today! Feel free to leave a positive comment below with a trail to find you so I can find your creations out on the "www" - I look forward to it.

Stamp On!!

Sandy
