Friendly Silhouettes & Ink Refills

Today I’m sharing a few cards that I put together using the new Friendly Silhouettes Dies, the coordinating Friend Like You Stamp Set, baby wipes and ink refills.

The first card I made was this one, but I wasn’t happy with the addition of the Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon.

I love the new Friendly Silhouettes dies that just debuted in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog.

I’ve included directions, measurements and supplies linked to my online store. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I wanted more sparkle (besides the subtle shimmer that comes through in the inked up Shimmery White Cardstock), but the ribbon brought in more black that seemed to darken the card a bit more.

So on this second version, I colored a couple Rhinestones with Blends Markers and added those near the sentiment. I also cut my dragonfly stamp image in half to get two separate dragonflies and stamped those near the cattails. MUCH better. 😊

At this angle (I took this photo near the sunlight in my window), you can see the shimmer from the inked up Shimmery White Cardstock.

Here are measurements and more tips/directions if you wish to recreate this card. (Be sure to scroll down further to see a couple other versions of this card using the other dies in this set.)

Measurements…

  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
    • 2-1/8” x 4-3/4”
  • Cherry Cobbler Cardstock
    • 3-5/8” x 4-7/8”
  • Shimmery White Cardstock
    • 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” (or 3-1/2″ by 5-1/2″ which is an easier size for adding the ink)
  • Daffodil Delight Cardstock
    • 3-1/2” x 4-3/4”

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products I used linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions/Tips…

  • Cutting your Shimmery White Cardstock to 3-1/2” x 4-3/4” will allow you to get five pieces from one 8-1/2″ x 11″ sheet. But I found after making several of these cards (this is my birthday card I made for those in my Stampers With ART group that have June birthdays) that is was easier to swipe on the ink if I started with a wider piece. So you may want to cut your Shimmery White to at least 3-1/2″ by 5-1/2″.
  • Fold up a baby wipe (or two), place on top of a glass or plastic surface (a plate should work…or a large clear block as I used in this photo below), and squeeze on drops of ink to create a “rainbow ink pad.”

  • With gloved hands swipe the “rainbow ink pad” slow and steady across the Shimmery White Cardstock. Because I used a wider piece of cardstock, I had about 1/2″ to hold onto when swiping.

  • You’ll want to do this more than once to blend the colors and prevent a streaked look.

  • You should be able to ink a few more sheets of Shimmery White Cardstock before needing to add more ink to your baby wipe. So plan to make more than one card. OR…stamp into the baby wipe to make other cards (like my leaf card below). But either way, be sure to use this baby wipe up a bit more before throwing it away.
  • After your Shimmery White Cardstock dries, cut to 3-1/2” x 4-3/4”.
  • Die-cut the cattails from the 2-1/8” x 4-3/4” piece of Basic Black Cardstock. Use a sponge to add Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the back side. Then adhere the cattails to the bottom of the inked Shimmery White piece.
  • Stamp the sentiment and dragonflies, then layer this onto the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock. Add this to the front of the card base using Dimensionals.
  • Stamp sentiment and dragonfly onto the Daffodil Delight layer and add to the inside of the card using SNAIL.

  • Color rhinestones with Blends Markers and add to the front of the card near the sentiment.

Here I used my baby wipe as an ink pad…

Friends of a Feather October 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternates

My October 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit arrived a few days ago, and I started creating with it right away! (Don’t expect that from me every month. I just happened to have time to play with it right away this time. LOL) I already shared one of these projects, my Get Well Monster Gift Pouch on Thursday with the promise to share more details today on how to make it. So today I present to you that fun project idea and a few more that I created so far with my Friends of a Feather October 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit:

  • two alternate cards
  • one with a coordinating gift box
  • a get well monster treat/gift pouch
  • and a tea light luminary

Here is what came in this kit.

Tiny Jack-O-Lantern Takeout Boxes

We have an fabulous set of dies in our new 2018 Holiday Catalog called Takeout Thinlits. One die in the set (cut two times) creates an adorable little treat box that is sized to 2-1/8″ x 1-3/4″ x 2″ tall (5.4 x 4.4 x 5.1 cm), and it looks like a mini Chinese takeout box.

Takeout Box Dies – New in the 2018 Holiday Catalog …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

After seeing a super cute Frankenstein version of this box created & shared by Jacque Williams while on the Alaskan cruise incentive trip by Stampin’ Up! this summer,…

Here are the details if you wish to make one (or more!) yourself.

Measurements:

  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Basic Black Cardstock: small scrap for punching out bats
  • Garden Green Cardstock: small scrap for punching out bats
  • Basic Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon: ~5″

Products: See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Die-cut the box die two times and assemble the box by first overlapping then connecting the bases with Tear & Tape Adhesive. Put a small strip of Tear & Tape on each of the four tabs. Pull up the sides and connect them together with the tabs. Shut the top side flaps, then shut the top main flaps by sliding them together.
  • Sponge the edges of the box with Pumpkin Pie ink.
  • Punch out the leaves, curl them a bit with the Bone Folder, and add to the top of the box (on the flap closest to the side that will become the front) with a Glue Dot.
  • Tie the ribbon in a knot. Then add this with a Glue Dot on top of the Glue Dot of the leaves. Trim the ends.
  • Punch out the bats. Then insert the punch again onto the side to punch just the scallop edge of the medium bat. Shift it up, and punch this scallop edge again about an 1/8″ from where you first punched. This will be the Jack-o-lantern’s mouth! 🙂
  • Now use your Paper Snips to trim the largest bat into five sections as shown below. The two outer pieces will be the eyes, and the middle one will be the nose! (Cute, huh?! I’m pretty proud of myself. LOL)

  • Attach these to the front of the box using Glue Dots and/or Fine Tip Glue.
  • Fill with a Halloween or harvest treat and gift to someone special.

Here are just a few of the pumpkins I made. Amazing how just moving the pieces makes the face look so different.

I also used this punch art for the faces on a couple other treats that I shared on September 6th.

These takeout treat boxes were one of the four make-n-takes featuring new 2018 Holiday Catalog products that my Stampers With ART Stars made during the last Online Team Event on August 22nd. We sure have fun in our group! I demonstrate these projects for them during that event by broadcasting live in our Facebook group. That way those that get the supplies from me and want to make them along with me can.

Did you see the other make-n-take that I shared on September 9th? The other two of the four I’ll share soon.

I also shared about our new house guest on September 9th…On a “spur of the moment” decision to help our neighbors, we took in their cat on Saturday evening to “foster it” until they could find someone who would want him. Well, the boys and I were thrilled that 24 hours later my husband announced that he was on board with the idea of keeping Riff Raff for good, too!

He’s here to stay!…stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

So right away I went out and got a few things to make our new family member feel more at home.

He’s here to stay!…stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Our new, almost-three-year-old cat is a sweetheart and has taken to our house with no problem. We plan to give him a new name (our neighbors said that would be fine, and they are thrilled that we have him for good), but we haven’t decided on one yet. Let me know if you have any ideas.

Thankful For All The Good Things

I am feeling VERY thankful these days. We finished off the summer with a wonderful vacation at the lake (my parents’ place). School began this last week. The boys are so far enjoying their new school year coming home happy each day (Luke is in 6th grade and Nick is in 7th). And… as of last evening we now have this sweet kitty staying with us. It was a spur-of-the-moment decision made literally yesterday afternoon to help out our friends. We aren’t sure if he is staying yet. The goal was to get a dog. But at least Riff Raff has a place to call home for awhile.

Simply Thankful for All the Good Things…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

So I decided today would be a great day to share this card – one of four make-n-takes featuring new 2018 Holiday Catalog products that my Stampers With ART Stars made during the last Online Team Event on August 22nd. I was actually inspired by the card on p. 42 in the catalog. My design is very similar.

Simply Thankful for All the Good Things card created with Country Home stamp set and Country Lane Designer Paper from the 2018 Holiday Catalog AND Stampin’ Blends markers. Click here for directions, measurements and supplies…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here are the details if you wish to recreate it.

Measurements:

  • Early Espresso Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″
  • Blackberry Bliss Cardstock: 4″ x 9″ scored at 5-1/4″
  • Mint Macaron Cardstock: 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ (for the inside) and 1-5/8″ x 4″ (or less)
  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock: scrap that is 2-1/2″ x 5
  • Country Lane Designer Paper: 2″ x 4″ (be sure that the Mint Macaron floral design on the back of the Blackberry Bliss design is cut so that the flowers are vertical)

Products: See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Punch 2-1/4″ circle from one half of Whisper White cardstock.
  • Stamp sentiment on the right side of the Mint Macaron strip, stamp the watering can on the circle, and stamp the flower image on the remaining scrap of Whisper White. Color watering can and flower images with Blends markers.
  • Fussy cut the flowers image, then attach with SNAIL adhesive to the top of the watering can as shown.
  • Add a small strip of Chicken Wire Elements coming out the back bottom of the sentiment strip.
  • Fold the Blackberry Bliss piece, run a strip of SNAIL down the right edge of the front short layer, then add the designer paper on top to extend the card base to meet up with the edges of the bottom layer.  Put SNAIL under this bottom layer and add to the Early Espresso piece.
  • Open up the Blackberry Bliss card base piece, and add the 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Mint Macaron layer. Notice that the flip side of the designer paper now shows the floral Mint Macaron design.
  • Add the sentiment strip to the front of the card using SNAIL. Then attach the Whisper White piece to the left of that using Dimensionals.

Limited Time Blended Seasons

There is only a week left to get your hands on the exclusive Blended Seasons stamp set & coordinating Stitched Seasons framelits.

So you may want to grab those up as well! Click here to access the promotional flyer.

I used that beautiful stamp set on my three cards that I shared on August 4th. If you subscribe to my blog posts, you may have seen them already. Here is a slight variation of those cards. On this one shown below I colored the leaves with the new Crushed Curry and Granny Apple Green Watercolor Pencils. I love those colors together! And I changed out the accessories and layout.

Click here for more information on how to make this beautiful falling leaves card with the limited-time Blended Seasons stamp set, new Watercolor Pencils, and some Whisper White Polka-Dot Tulle Ribbon…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here are the details for making this card.

Measurements:

  • Crushed Curry Cardstock: 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for card base
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2-3/8″ x 2-3/8″ & 2-3/4″ x 4″ for the inside layer
  • Linen Thread: 30″
  • Whisper White Polka-Dot Tulle Ribbon: 4″

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Use coordinating ink on the closed card base to stamp the leaves from the upper left to the lower right. Open the card and stamp the leaves in the lower left corner.
  • While the card is open, add the inside white layer.
  • Now work on the front layer of the card…wrap the Linen Thread three times around and tie in a knot. Then lay the Polka-Dot ribbon across the knot and tie the twine into a knot again to secure the ribbon.
  • Using the StazOn Jet Black ink stamp leaves and sentiment on the smaller Whisper White piece. Color the leaves with Granny Apple Green and Crushed Curry Watercolor Pencils. Use the Blender Pen to blend and soften the color on the leaves. Practice on scrap paper if you’d like.
  • Attach this white layer to the black layer.
  • Put Dimensionals on the back side. And stick this layer down on the card so that the tulle ribbon peeks out the left side of the layer.
  • Add a few pearls.

Here is another card showing off the beauty of this wonderful stamp set and die bundle. Lynn Feldkamp put this beautiful card together for the Alaskan incentive trip swap, and I was lucky enough to receive it.

Blended Seasons, Ink Pads & A Blender Pen

I got to play with my Blended Seasons stamp set yesterday. And this time I decided to show how awesome having a Blender Pen can be with our Classic Ink Pads. You can squeeze a closed Classic Ink Pad together to get ink on the inside of the lid. And then just dip a Blender Pen into the ink puddle to pick up the ink and color with it. That’s how I colored these leaves on the white layers of the cards below.

I just needed one Classic ink pad, its coordinating cardstock (along with Whisper White & Basic Black cardstock), the StazOn Jet Black ink, and the Blender Pen to build the color on each card.

Here are the details for making the cards.

Measurements:

  • Balmy Blue (Granny Apple Green or Merry Merlot) Cardstock: 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for card base
  • Basic Black Cardstock: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″ & 2-3/4″ x 4″ for the inside layer
  • Basic Black Twine: 36″

Products:  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Use coordinating ink on the closed card base to stamp the leaves along the left side. Open the card and stamp the leaves in the lower right corner.

  • Using the StazOn Jet Black ink stamp leaves and sentiment on the smaller Whisper White piece. Squeeze the closed colored Classic ink pad to get color on the inside of the lid. Open up the pad, and dip the Blender Pen into the puddle to pick up color. Use the Blender Pen to color the leaves. Practice on scrap paper if you’d like to get the feel of how to add the color. And know that the richest/darkest color will release from the pen right away and slowly blend out to clear as you color.
