Hand-Penned All Star Blog Hop August 2021

All Star Tutorial Bundle monthly hop - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Welcome to our All Star Tutorial monthly blog hop for the Hand-Penned Suite!

Be ready to be immersed in this fantastic suite with all that we have to share. In addition to the suite products, you’ll also notice now that there is an addition pack of beautiful black & white designer paper now out there called Beautifully Penned. This paper coordinates well with this suite and is free with a qualifying order (in the US that amount is $50 not including shipping and tax). I didn’t use that paper in the card I’m sharing today, but I did in my exclusive tutorial project (see below for details on how you can get that tutorial bundle).

A few hours ago I shared live on YouTube step-by-step directions for how to make a Double Slider Card using the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set, the Penned Flowers Dies, the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper, the Gold Metallic Specialty Paper, and the new Brushed Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots. It looks like a complicated card, but it’s done with a super simple mechanism – a loop of thin plastic! And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video (and the peek of the Beautifully Penned Designer Paper!). Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).

Encircled in Turtle Love

In the midst of preparing for a large stamping event that kicks off this weekend (Demos Galore), I had to cancel my YouTube Live event that normally happens at 11 AM Central Time on Wednesdays. I decided my body couldn’t do it all. LOL So..my apologies to those of you who visited my channel today to look for it. But I needed time to work on event projects & preparations AND keep up with my usual tasks. Thanks for your understanding.

Though I don’t have a video, I do want to share today here in my blog this fun Corner Cut-Out Card I made with the Turtle Friends stamp images, Blending Brushes, the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder, and the Encircled In Beauty Dies.

I love how the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder really lends itself well to the look of a turtle shell! The dies in the Encircled in Beauty collection have a unique, fancy edging that did a bit more for me than just a regular circle die would offer. And this stamp set has great images and fun sentiments. 

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

Measurements…

  • Evening Evergreen Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 11” scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”

  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock
    • 4-1/16″ x 5-5/16″

  • Add what is remaining to the front of the Evening Evergreen Cardstock card base with only a small amount of adhesive so it can be removed later. Line up the die, and die-cut the Evening Evergreen to remove the corner.

  • Reattach this to the front of the card base. Add the Pear Pizzazz layer to the inside of the card. Add the die-cut circle to the Pear Pizzazz layer filling in the “hole.” (The straight edges of the white should line up with the straight edges of the Pear Pizzazz.
  • Stamp the turtle outline image, the hearts, and the sentiment with Evening Evergreen ink. Ink up the shell image in all three colors using Sponge Daubers, then stamp the image to complete the turtle.

Simple Peach Card & Spinner Version

I’m sharing a couple cards with you today that look a bit similar. I made the second one (the spinner card) first. And then I made this non-spinner simpler version (which I’m sharing first). This is a very easy card to make. I made multiples so I could send them to achieving team members.

Simple You’re a Peach Suite card & spinner version of the same card using Give it a Whirl Dies to make the spinner. Access more photos, measurements, tips, and a supply list by clicking here. Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

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

Measurements

  • Early Espresso Cardstock
    • 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored parallel to the short side at 4-1/4″
  • Pale Papaya Cardstock
    •  3-3/4″ x 5″
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting sentiment piece
  • Calypso Coral Cardstock
    •  3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Basic White Cardstock
    • 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″
  • Pear Pizzazz Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting leaves
  • You’re a Peach Designer Paper
    • 3″ x 3-5/8″

Tips 

  • Die-cut a double leaf and two single leaves with the Give It a Whirl dies to create the look of a branch.
  • Attach the sentiment strip and the Calypso Coral layer with Dimensionals.

I really like the Early Espresso as the base layer on the card above and wish I would’ve done that with the spinner card (below). But this spinner card was the one I started assembling in just a couple hours time when I first got my Give It a Whirl dies…I wanted to have a quick sample of how to use the dies when I featured this die set in my box opening event with my demonstrator group the day my order arrived. It didn’t turn out bad. In fact, the card is quite cute. And I love the way the sentiments from the Sweet As a Peach stamp set fit the window so well. I guess I would just change the card base to bring in a bit more Early Espresso color. Do you agree?

The Give It a Whirl dies allow you to spin the circular layer underneath and show different things through the window. For this card I used three different sentiments in the You’re a Peach stamp set. So these next three photos show the three different views.

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

Measurements…

  • Balmy Blue Cardstock
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored parallel to the short side at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″
    • 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Basic White Cardstock

  • Real Red Playful Pets Trim 
    • Two pieces that are 1″ each

Directions… 

  • Die-cut the smaller Balmy Blue piece as shown using the 2-5/8″ and 1-7/8″ diameter Circle Dies. Die-cut white scraps to get multiple circles which will later form clouds. I die-cut one 2-3/8″, two 1-5/8″, two 1-3/8″, and two 1-1/8″ diameter circles. 
  • Stamp sentiments on the two that you’ll want to have as centers of the clouds.

  • Add Dimensionals to these parts and pieces as shown. Be sure not to have the Dimensionals positioned too close to the circle edges on both cardstock pieces.
  • Make a coin sandwich by connecting the coins with a Dimensional (keep everything centered as you make the sandwich).

  • Add them to the bottom fourth of the card base by first adding the outer piece, then the sandwiched coins so the raised cardstock fits inside the coin sandwich, and then the inside circle. (Be sure this is centered as perfectly as you can get it. AND be sure the circle fits inside the coin sandwich on the opposite side.)

  • Prevent the coin sandwich from escaping by adding the Garden Green strip as shown (about 1/8″ from the bottom edge).
  • Add the main cloud sentiment circle using Dimensionals when the card is closed so you can see it completely. Keep the Dimensionals in the middle of the circle so you can tuck other circles under and around.

  • Add the ribbon pieces using Glue Dots from the kit.
  • Draw in three dots (an ellipses) before the word “ever.” Add a blue rhinestone and draw in the rest of an exclamation mark after the word “ever.”

Sand & Sea All Star Blog Hop June 2021

All Star Tutorial Bundle monthly hop - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Welcome to our All Star Tutorial monthly blog hop for the Sand & Sea Suite!

I received an amazing fun fold card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardner earlier this month. When I messaged them to thank them, I said it was the most “wowest” card I have ever seen! Seriously…this thing is incredible. (Click here to check it out.) And so of course as an addict to fun fold cards and math, I just had to recreate it (in a slightly more simplified version) and share it with all of you.

So a few hours ago I shared live on YouTube step-by-step directions for creating my version of this card using products from the Sand & Sea Suite: Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, the Seaside Seashells Dies, the Seashells Embossing Folder, the Opal Rounds, and the Sand & Sea Designer Paper. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements (sorry there are no metric measurements this time), close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).

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