Jars and Cookie-Cutters – 9

September 29th, 2016 by craftdoc

Time for another Stampin’ Up! series of posts.  This time I went wild with the Everyday Jar Framelits Dies and the Cookie-Cutter Punch.  The matching stamp sets are Jar of Love, Jar of Cheer, Jar of Haunts, Cookie-Cutter Christmas and Cookie-Cutter Halloween.

Here are a few more display cards from this series if you are ready for a bit of snow!

The background is a piece of Candy Cane Lane DSP.  Sentiment is Suite Seasons.  I just hand cut a square and rectangle to make the hat and a triangle nose for the snowman.  The white cardstock at the bottom is torn and embossed with the Seaside folder.

This card is inspired by a card by Tami White using partial embossing with the Softly Falling Folder.  I glued some Mica flakes here and there and added Glitter Ribbon, both from the Holiday Catalog.

Jars and Cookie-Cutters – 6

September 26th, 2016 by craftdoc

Time for another Stampin’ Up! series of posts.  This time I went wild with the Everyday Jar Framelits Dies and the Cookie-Cutter Punch.  The matching stamp sets are Jar of Love, Jar of Cheer, Jar of Haunts, Cookie-Cutter Christmas and Cookie-Cutter Halloween.

Here’s a cute box made with the Cookie-Cutter Halloween scarecrow that was inspired by a project by Janet Wakeland.  It just needs to be filled with treats!  The Clear Tiny Treat boxes are in the Annual Catalog.  I made a cardstock “stick” from Crumb Cake and the Hardwood background stamp.  The strip of designer paper (Halloween Night) is 12″ by 1-1-2 inches. and  wrapped around the box, curled at the top and tied with Halloween Night Baker’s Twine.

I made a few tags to send out with my Holiday Catalogs.  The background is from the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set.

Today’s tip for using the Cookie Cutter Punch.  If you do not want the pieces on the sides to cut, use 5-1/2 by 2 inch strips to stamp on.  Stamp the cookie-cutter so the “feet” are towards a short edge.  You can get 2 from each strip.  You could probably make your strips a little smaller, but this size works well for a class.

TUTORIAL – Double Matted Frames – Jars and Cookie-Cutters – 4

September 24th, 2016 by craftdoc

Time for another Stampin’ Up! series of posts.  This time I went wild with the Everyday Jar Framelits Dies and the Cookie-Cutter Punch.  The matching stamp sets are Jar of Love, Jar of Cheer, Jar of Haunts, Cookie-Cutter Christmas and Cookie-Cutter Halloween.

This is one of my display cards.  The Cookie-Cutter scarecrow is hanging by gold thread at the top and bottom of the oval opening.  The background is from the Serene Scenery DSP stack and the sentiment from Thoughtful Banners with the Duet Banner punch.

Today’s Tips:

-You may think you can center the ovals (or other shape) on your card evenly, but here is the fool-proof method.  And here is a previous post that also shows a tutorial for double matted frames.

1.Align the card and the top panel.  Cut with the smaller framelit.

IMG_5148cr

2.  Then cut just the top panel with the larger framelit.

IMG_5149cr

3.  Tape the thread between 2 stamped scarecrows and onto the card base.  Then add the top panel.

IMG_5150cr

This photo is just to prove that the ovals were not exactly centered even though they look like it!   I just turned over the top panel to the other side for demonstration purposes.

IMG_5151cr

And here is a reminder that you can easily bend your photopolymer stamps to fit the curved shape of the Duet Banner Punch.

Today’s Tips:

Stamp the background with the large Watercolor Wash. Tear the small strip of Crumb Cake to make ground.  Tuck a moon, Early Espresso tree (not pictured) and strip of burlap ribbon beween the background and the torn panel.  Inside stamp “thanks” and the crow.  Color scarecrow with blender pen and ink.  Adhere with Dimensional.

Hint for using the Cookie Cutter Punch.  If you do not want the pieces on the sides to cut, use 5-1/2 by 2 inch strips to stamp on.  Stamp the cookie-cutter so the “feet” are towards a short edge.  You can get 2 from each strip.

Tuck a 4” piece of lace behind the DSP strip (I added this after I took the photo). Stamp all 3 jars on a piece of Whisper White and cut with framelits.  Stamp the water stamp with Pool Party on the front jar.  Stamp the burlap strip and bow on a scrap and fussy cut.  On the jars for the inside stamp “friend” and “you fill me with happiness”.

Jars and Cookie-Cutters

September 21st, 2016 by craftdoc

Time for another Stampin’ Up! series of posts.  This time I went wild with the Everyday Jar Framelits Dies and the Cookie-Cutter Punch.  The matching stamp sets are Jar of Love, Jar of Cheer, Jar of Haunts, Cookie-Cutter Christmas and Cookie-Cutter Halloween.

Here’s a peek at some of the projects I will be sharing.  I change out the display each month for my class.

IMG_5337475

This was everyone’s favorite class card – the Teddy Bear Christmas Card.  I also showed how to make it into a Baby card by changing the sentiment and using a lighter cardstock.

IMG_5237cr

Today’s Tips:

To use the Cable Knit Dynamic folder, first spritz the cardstock on both sides with water (if you have trouble with the cardstock cracking) and place in folder. Your sandwich is Big Shot Platform, Folder, one cutting pad and place spine first through the machine.   You do not use a second cutting pad because of the extra thickness of this folder.  Stamp the ears on your white circle or oval before adhering your teddy bear.

Hint for using the Cookie Cutter Punch.  If you do not want to waste cardstock, use 5-1/2 by 2 inch strips to stamp on.  Stamp the cookie-cutter so the “feet” are towards a short edge.  You can get 2 from each strip.
