JAR OF LOVE - HALLOWEEN



Pumpkin Pie cs- die cut 2 of the medium sized jars from the Everyday Jars Framelits.  Use the Hardwood stamp & Pumpkin Pie ink on the front & back of this.  I had an old face that I stamped in black ink.  I did not have the new Jar of Haunts stamp set, but it has a great face stamp in it.

The lid was stamped with Basic Gray ink on Basic Gray cs & cut out with the framelits.  Then highlight it with the gold Wink of Stella.

Box--3 1/2 x 3" Pumpkin Pie cs.   With the 3 1/2" side at the top score at 1 & 2 1/2"
Turn & put the 3" at the top and score at 1 & 2"

Cut on the score lines up to the fold line on each of the folds on the 3 1/2" side.  You will have 4 little snips!  Fold the box & tape or glue.  If you tape use Fast Fuse or the Tear & Tape.

Tape the gray lids on the jar.  Tape the bottom of the jars & adhere them to the front & back of the box.

There are 2 Hershey Nuggets inside.  If you want to wrap them use some DSP cut at 1 x 3.  Tie your pumpkin jar closed with Bakers Twine.  If you use a different candy that is bigger-don't tie the top so it will fit.

Hope you liked this little treat!

COOKIE CUTTER CHRISTMAS-GINGERBREAD MAN



5 1/2 x 8 1/2 crumb cake cs--score at 4 1/4 & fold
2 5/8 x 5 1/2 real red cs
1 3/8 x 5 1/2 candy cane lane dsp

The little stars are from the Star of Light stamp set & stamped in real red ink.
The gingerbread men are stamped on scrap white with early espresso ink.  Punch them out with the cookie cutter builder punch.  The buttons are the little heart in the punch & they are punched in red glitter paper.

1 x 3 1/4 white cs is for the greeting & the stamp set is Oh, What Fun.  Round the corners & sponge it.

Hope you liked this card!

COOKIE-CUTTER CHRISTMAS



5 1/2 x 8 1/2 vanilla cs score at 4 1/4 & fold in half
4 x 5 1/4 real red cs--punch out the red backing for the greeting & the circle that goes behind the reindeer.  Make sure that you don't make any of the cuts close to the edge & no one will ever know that you did this. (This saves on the cost of your card stock & helps to keep the weight of the card down.)

3 3/4 x 5 crumb cake cs & ink--stamp the reindeer on this.

1 1/4 x 5 Dandy Cane Lane DSP

On a piece of scrap vanilla cs stamp another reindeer.  Punch it out using the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.  Do you see that the punch is turned upside down for this.  Yes, the antlers are the legs--the reindeer ears are the arms.  Isn't that cute!

Stamp your greeting from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in real red ink on vanilla cs & punch out with the Duet Banner Punch.   Layer this on the red one you punched out.  Mount with dimensionals.  The reindeer is mounted with dimensionals too.  The red nose is red glitter paper punched out with the cookie cutter punch.  It is the the very bottom of a foot (or leg).  Use a glue dot to attach.

EMBELLISHED ORNAMENTS



I just noticed that there is some glare on the left of this picture.  (I keep the cards in a plastic sleeve when I am saving them for a class.)

Embellished Ornaments stamp set & matching framelits are the only ones that I used on this card.

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Sweet Sugarplum cs---score at 4 1/4 & 1 1/4
1 1/4 x 5 1/2 & 7/8 x 5 1/2" Emerald Envy cs

Use the emerald envy ink to stamp on the emerald envy cs.
Tape the 2 pieces to the card front.

I tore just a small strip off the edge of the sweet sugarplum cs.  Sponge it with the matching ink.  I also sponged lightly on the front of the sweet sugarplum cs with the matching ink.  Fold back the 1 1/4" piece that you tore the edge off.  Tape or glue this down.

Use the framelits to cut out the ornaments from an extra piece of emerald envy cs.  Cut out the lacy ornament from a piece of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  When you use your Big Shot to cut glimmer paper always make sure that you put the glitter side down.  You want the framelit to cut thru the paper backing first.

Use a little glue to put the ornament pieces together & mount on the folded part of the front.  Be sure to get the glue on the correct side so that you don't glue the card shut.

5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Real Red cs--score at 4 1/4" & fold in half

4 x 5 1/4" white cs - emboss with Softly Falling embossing folder
Garden Green cs - Use the Layering Ovals Framelits-the largest  one to cut out the oval.
white cs - Use the next smaller oval to cut for this layer

Stamp the dog from Bella & Friends with Crumb Cake ink.  Stamp another dog on a piece of scrap paper & fussy cut it out.  You could use a post it note for this & make sure you have part of the stamped image where the sticky is.  Now lay the cut out dog over top of your stamped dog. If you used a post it note it will stay in place nicely for you.  Now stamp the log from the Foxy Friends stamp set.  Use Soft Suede ink.  Remove the post it note & look at how nicely the dog is sitting on the log.  This is called masking!

The hat is from Snow Place stamp set & matching framelits- using real red ink.  Color the heart & collar with a red maker.

The greeting is from Oh, What Fun stamp set.  The banner is from Thoughtful Banners & punched out with the matching punch.

I used dimensionals on the banner.   Put the white oval onto the green oval & use dimensionals to mount on the front of the card.

This is what I made for my grandsons party invites.  I did it like a post card.  The back is a printed piece with all the party information.  It was quicker to make them this way & a little different.  Of course they had to be mailed in an envelope.  I just wanted to do something a little different!

SITTING HERE - PORCH SWING CARD

Here is another card we did in the last class.  A different use for the porch swing!





Stamp sets

Sitting Here
Sheltering Tree
Petite Petals & punch

5 1/2 x 8 1/2" Soft Sky cs--score at 4 1/4" & fold in half.
4 x 5 1/4" Dapper Denim cs--stamp your flowers with Dapper Denim ink & punch them out.  Just be careful not to be right next to the edge of the card stock.  See the picture below.
3 3/4 x 5" very vanilla cs--Stamp your porch swing using Crumb Cake ink.  If you look at the picture below you will see that I was making the card the other direction.  Either way will work!  Notice that the porch swing did not stamp perfect & that is okay.  The flowers will cover up this.

After you stamp the swing or fence--stamp the tree trunk.  
Wild Wasabi ink for the leaves
Real Red for the bird

Put your layers together & add the flowers.  I used the Wink of Stella pen for a little glitz or shine in the flower centers!

ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD CARD





Here is another card from class.  This would be a great "man" card!

4 1/4 x 11 Emerald Envy cs (new in-color)  Score in half at 5 1/2" & fold---Put the folded edge at the 4" mark on the envelope punch board & punch.  This will be a little hard, but will go thru both layers.  Then flip the card over & keep the folded edge at the 4" line & punch again.

4 x 5 1/8" white cs---Line up at the 4" mark & punch both sides.  Remember to flip the card stock over to get the second punch!

In the Meadow stamp set

Deer stamped in Soft Suede
Wild flowers stamped in Soft Suede
Wild flowers stamped a second time with the Emerald Envy ink.  Just off set it a little to give a shadowed look.  Mine were pretty close.  I was actually trying to have them a little farther off!  It will all look good!
Grass in stamped with the Emerald Envy.

For the sun I punched a 1 1/4" circle out of scrap cs.  I held it down & sponged around it with Daffodil Delight ink.

Attach the white  to your card base.  Wrap Linen Tread around it twice & tie in a knot

Hope you liked it!
Happy Stampin!

BUTTERFLY CARD




This is one of the cards we made in class this month.  I just realized that I didn't have the greeting stamped when I took the picture.  I guess I will have to take another picture!  I will go on with the directions & post the picture with the greeting later!

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Sweet Sugarplum cs--score at 4 1/4 & fold in half (this is a new in-color)
4 x 5 1/4 Sahara Sand cs
3 3/4 x 5 white cs






The stamp set is Timeless Textures 
I used the Sahara Sand ink & stamped using the one that looks like a grid


Then I stamped right over the grid with the next stamp.
Add a couple of the swirls.

Now you will use the Sweet Sugarplum ink to stamp the flower like stamp & then I added some of the little dots for filler.

The butterfly was cut using the Bold Butterfly Framelits & a scrap of the Sweet Sugarplum cs.  Attach the butterfly with a glue dot & I used 3 small pearls on the butterfly's body.

The greeting I used was from an old stamp set that I had & stamped with  Sweet Sugarplum ink.

I really liked how this card turned out.  It would be great for a wedding!


Hope you liked the card.

Three Step Rose card




I started with Blushing Bride cs cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2--Score at 4 1/4" --- Then I cut off 2 1/8"

This Designer Paper is retired(Birthday Bouquet), but any would work.
DSP is 1 7/8 x 5 1/4"--This is for the front flap 
1 x 5 1/4"--This is for the back or inside of card.

Inside white 3 x 5 1/4" This piece will lay right next to the fold line.

Front --
Brushing Bride cs--3 1/2 x 4"
White cs--3 1/4 x 3 3/4"

Stamps---
Rose Wonder stamp set--The greeting & the leaf
Picture Perfect--the rose
The inside words are just a stamp that I have & like.  It is not a Stampin'Up! stamp.

I stamped the rose first.  This is a 3 step stamp.
This is what I used.
#1stamp--Blushing Bride ink
#2 stamp--Pink Pirquette ink
#3 stamp-Watermelon Wonder

If you look you will see a little tab like on the stamps.  If you put that towards the bottom each time you stamp it will be easy to line them up!

After I stamped the rose I did the greeting in Watermelon Wonder ink.  Then I stamped the Leaves using Mossy Meadow ink.  I just tried to fill in the area with leaves.  I stamped off the stamp on scrap paper first, so that the ink would not be real dark.

Be careful when you tape or glue front on the card base.  Make sure your adhesive is on the correct part!

Card Base is Lost Lagoon 5 1/2 x 8 1/2--fold in half (4 1/4")
4 x 5 1/4" white cs--embossed with theWorld Traveler Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
    I usually have the raised side up when mount on a card front.  This time I put the raised side down.  I used
    a sponge & Lost Lagoon ink to color the water.  I like this look.  It is different for me.

Scrap piece of Lost Lagoon card stock & cut out the banner using the Banners Framelits.  I used the 4th one   (starting with the smallest)

The ship is from the Traveler stamp set.  Stamped in Basic Gray ink.  The water under the ship is Lost Lagoon ink & the stamp is from the Work of Art stamp set.  Cut is out with the Ovals Collection Framelits.  I used the #4 (starting with the smallest.)

I put Sequins around the oval.  I had some retired ones.  You could use candy dots or brads instead.

This is just a good manly card.  You could put any saying inside.

Grateful Bunch flower card


Here is another card we made in the last class.  They are both about the same.  I am going to give you the measurements for the card on the right.

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 pool party cs fold in half (4 1/4") Stamp the inside with your words.
5 1/4 x 4 bermuda bay cs--layer this on the front of the card.

4 1/2 x 3 3/4 white cs--Stamp the flower stem from the Grateful Bunch stamp set with Cucumber Crush ink.
Now we will cut the card stock.
1/2" is the first piece
1 3/4"  2nd piece
1" is the 3rd piece
3/4" is the 4th piece
1/2" is the piece that is left.
There is no real right or wrong for the sizes.  I wanted to have a bigger piece where I would put the greeting.
Lay the pieces on the card & then start with the top & tape each piece down.

Stamp some flowers & punch them out with the Blossom Bunch Punch.  I used glue dots for the flowers.  Notice the card on the left has candy dots in the flower center.  The card on the right has Dazzling Details in the flower center.

The greeting is from Petite Pairs.  This set is on the retiring list.  Be sure to get it before the end of May.
The Large Oval & Scallop Oval Punches were used.  The cs is white & pool party.The ink is Bermuda bay.

The flower colors & butterfly-

WATER COLOR WETLANDS




Here is another card from class last month.

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 pool party cs--fold in half at 4 1/4"
4 x 5 1/4 chocolate chip cs. ---  cut out 2 squares using the #3 square framelits from the center.  As long as you cut it from the center no one will be able to tell.  This will save you card stock & it saves on the weight of the card.

3 3/4 x 5 vary vanilla cs.-- stamp the goose & greeting with chocolate chip ink.  The grass is stamped with crumb cake ink.

Put your layers together.

Have a small spritzer with water in it.  Take a medium size clear block & ink half of it with the pool party ink.  You always start with the lightest ink.  Then ink the other half with the crumb cake ink.  If you have the old ink pads you can rub the block on them.  If you have the newer very juicy ink pads be careful not to push to hard.  With the lighter inks it is hard to see it on the block.  

Spritz the air & wave the inked block thru the mist.  Then use it like a stamp & stamp it on Shimmery White card stock.  You must use Shimmery white or water color card stock for this!

Now ink the baby geese with chocolate chip ink & stamp.  You need 2.  Now cut 2 of them out with the #2 square framelit.  Mount it on the chocolate chip square & mount them on the card front  You could pop them up with dimensionals if you wanted to.

This is one of those that every time you do it it will look different!  Practice on some scrap paper if you want to.

You can see below 2 more cards I did.  Notice that the water coloring looks different on each card.


I used Zoo Babies for this card.

THE OPEN SEA


I loved doing this card.  It would be great for any occasion!

5 1/2 x 8 1/2 night of navy cs - fold in half
4 x 5 1/4 bermuda bay cs
3 3/4 x 5 soft sky cs - stamp with the compass using soft sky ink for a background.

In the center of the bermuda bay cs cut out a circle using the # 5 & 6 circles from the circle framelits.
On a scrap piece of night of navy cut out a circle using the #5 & 7 circle framelit.--glue the 2 framelits together.    Punch out a background from the night of navy cs- I used the modern label punch which is retired.

On a piece of scrap white cs stamp the ship--cut it out using the #5 circle framelit.  Night of Navy ink.
Stamp your greeting - I used the teeny tiny wishes stamp set & punched it out with the word window punch.
Stamp the anchor & cut it out by hand.

Layer the card stock & mount the circles on the card.  I used liquid glue to attach the ship - This way you can have a little "wiggle room" in case you need it.

I used dimensionals to pop up the greeting & anchor.

Use white cs or copy paper cut to 4 x 5 1/4 on the inside & stamp whatever words you want.

This stamp set, punches & framelits are on the retiring list.  Be sure to get them while you still can.

Mount these layers together
Tie an 8" piece of pool party 3/8" glitter ribbon around.  This is just a knot.  If you want a bow you will need more ribbon.

Mount this layer to the front of the card.

Use the Butterflies thinlits to cut a butterfly out of rich razzleberry cs.  Use a glue dot to mount to the front of the so saffron cs.  I used 3 rhinestone on the body of the butterfly.

pear pizzazz cs is used  for the background of the greeting with the scallop oval punch.
Any greeting that will fit the large oval punch will work. I used black ink to stamp the greeting.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY POP-UP THINLITS CARD



If you look a little farther down on this blog you will see that I posted a video on how to use the thinlit dies.  It would help you to watch it before you make this card.


5 1/2 x 8 1/2" crushed curry cs--fold in half

5 x 8" melon mambo cs---fold in half--
You will see the arrow points on the thinlit die.  Line them up with the fold line & run it thru the Big Shot.  I used the Precision Base Plate & the Big Shot Die Brush. Carefully fold it so that the center will "pop" when the card is opened.

Carefully tape or glue this to the inside of the card.

On a piece of scrap melon mambo cs cut out the happy birthday for the front of the card.  I used the Precision Base Plate & the Big Shot Die Brush.  Trim it to fit nice on the front of the card.

4 x 5 1/4" It's my Party DSP
Punch the bottom right corner with the Curvey Corner Trio Punch
Cut & tape a piece of ribbon on the DSP (I used a discontinued ribbon that I had.)
Tape or glue onto the card front.

Use the fine tip glue to glue on the Happy Birthday.
Gold & Clear Wink of Stella was used on the candles & Happy Birthday.

2) 1/2 x 5" DSP--I taped this on the inside of the card for a little extra.

SELF CLOSING BOX




I used some older Designer Series Paper for this box.  The colors are Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral & Coastal Cabana (discontinued)

8 1/2" x 6" card stock
Score at 4" & 8"


Turn the cs & score at 1" & 5"
See the picture below.



Turn the cs to the original way.
Score at 2" & 6" down to the score line.


Now place your cs on a piece of foam.  Take a ruler & use you scoring tool to score diagonally from the 2" line to the left edge & score line.  Now go from the 2" score line to right to the corner of the score marks.  Repeat this with the 6" score line.  You are making triangles. You can see this in the picture below.


Cut the 2, 4 & 6" score lines down to the score line.  Trim off the 2 corners--This will be the flap to close the box.


Carefully fold on all the fold lines.

Use a strong tape (Tear & Tape is good).  Put the tape on the flap & fold the box over & it will be sealed.


2) 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" Designer Series Paper
Mark the center & cut from the mark down to the corner.  Do this to both sides.

While the box is still flat apply the dsp to the box.  You will use all 6 pieces.


Use the Decorative Dots embossing fold for the top of the box. 
Tie a small bow & put on the top with a glue dot.



Bunny Back
1" circle punch is body--white cs
3/4" circle punch is head--white cs
Petite Petals flower punch is ears--white cs You will be using 2 petals.
Tree Builder punch-the small flower is the tail--pink cs

Sponge all the edges with a light pink ink.
Use glue dots to put the bunny together.


Use the smallest Oval Framelit for the background for the bunny.

Use glue dots to put the bunny on the background oval & mount on the front of the box.

Now you can use a strong tape or glue to close the bottom of the box.

I hope you liked this box.  I thought it would be great for Easter candy.  A gift card would also fit inside nicely.  Change the color & DSP, and it would be great for any occasion.
