Card Swaps

April 29th, 2016 by craftdoc

I haven’t been able to do much stamping during our home remodeling, so this is the perfect time to share some of the swap cards I received at #onstage2016.  For the next week I will share my favorite cards made with retiring stamp sets.

The first card, by Jan Reid, features the retiring Party Wishes stamp set.  I love how she used the “It’s my Party” Washi Tape to make the diagonal stripes.  That and the enamel dots and the Combo Baker’s Twine are all retiring as well.

The second card, by Kristi Kildoo features the retiring Swallowtail and Blessed by God stamps, and again the Baker’s Twine.  The Note Tag Punch is also retiring.

You can purchase all the supplies for these projects at my website shop.

The first card by unknown demonstrator, features the First Sight stamp set.  This set is not retiring, but the Curvy Corner Trio punch is.  I love the sponged, reverse masked oval and the gold embossed sentiment on this card.

The other cards, by unknown demonstrator and Michelle Hornback feature the “Apple of my Eye” stamp set, with some fun bold sentiments.  You can purchase the supplies for all these projects at my website shop.

The first card is made with the Corner Garden background stamp.  I love how Carla Starry embossed it in white on blushing bride cardstock and then used a sponge dauber to add calypso coral ink to the centers of the flowers.  The second card by Nancy Alvarez, using the “Hey, Girl” stamp set,  shows some great coloring with Stampin’ Write Markers.  All supplies can be purchase at my website shop.

This group of cards were made using the Going Global stamp set and World Traveler Embossing Folder.  The last card also features the “For Your Country” stamp set.    All are retiring, so be sure to pick them up at my website shop.  Card Artists:  Tina Floe, Olivia Logan, Michelle Musumeci, Donna Johnson, Christine Kurpiel.  The burlap ribbon is retiring too!

Fun Folds 3

April 23rd, 2016 by craftdoc

For the last card I added a panel to a folded card front for a fun touch.  The Nice Cuppa stamp set and matching framelits are only available for a short time longer.  They have been a big favorite.

Today’s Tips:

-I scored 1/2″ from the top corner to 1-3/4″ from the bottom corner to make the fold.

-The Stampin’ Up! doilies are a great embellishment coordinating with this stamp and framelit bundle.  There is also a matching Designer Series Paper Stack and cute teapot charms.

-All can be purchased at my website sh0p.

 

 

Fun Folds 2

April 21st, 2016 by craftdoc

For the second card we made a simple pocket with a pull out panel using the beautiful Into the Meadow stamp set.  This set, only available for a short while is great for masculine cards.  I paired it with a sentiment from Suite Sayings.

Today’s Tips:

-I made a pencil mark 2″ from the bottom of the card and cut with my Stampin’ trimmer to the top corner.  I used Tear and Tape for adhesive and added a touch of gold Wink of Stella for some sparkle.   The insert is 3-1/2 by 4-3/4″.   You can find them all at my website shop.

Fun Folds 1

April 19th, 2016 by craftdoc

This special fold look almost like a shirt collar and shows off both sides of the Botanical Gardens Designer Series Paper.  The Botanical Blooms stamp set and coordinating Framelit Bundle have been very popular this spring.    I used the Happy Happenings stamp set for the sentiment.

Today’s Tips:

-I made a pencil dot at 2-3/4″ from the top (which is the center) and cut in 1-1/2″.  I folded back the ends without creasing,  and attached with a glue dot.  I then added some botanical die cuts and a rhinestone.

-The coordinating Washi tape makes a nice binder strip for the card.

-The entire Botanical Gardens suite products can be found at my website shop.

Lemon Tea Gift Bags

April 15th, 2016 by craftdoc

I made some cute gift bags for my Stampin’ Up! On Stage roommates.  These were basically CASED from the Occasions Catalog using the “A Nice Cuppa” stamp set and matching framelits and paper stack, and our Petite Cafe Gift Bags.  I went with a lemon theme and filled my bags with lemon green tea and lemon drop candies.  And of course chocolate – have to have that, even if it does not fit the theme.

Today’s Tips:

-The Stampin’ Up! doilies and charms are fun to use with this suite of products.

-The cafe bags are lined so you can fill with cookies or a pastry as well.  You can find these at my website shop.

OnStage Swaps

April 14th, 2016 by craftdoc

Today I will be swapping cards with my demonstrator friends at #stampinup #OnStage in Salt Lake City!  Here are the 2 swap cards I am taking with me.  I made 150 swaps, so I should be coming back with lots of great ideas to share with you soon!

Today’s Tips:

-We had a short list of stamp sets that are not going to retire.  I used the Sheltering Tree stamp set to make the background border and the rainbow.  The sentiment is from the Friendly Wishes stamp set.

-For the inchie squares in the second card, I made a full sheet covered with Timeless Textures images stamped in Sahara Sand.  Then I cut them with my paper trimmer.  If you are just doing a few cards, the 1 inch punch would work great for the squares.  The Petite Petals were stamped in Perfect Plum, punched and then popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Sentiment is from the BYOP stamp set.

-You can purchase all these products at my website shop.
