July 2021 The Adventure Begins Kit Alternate Ideas

I’m ready to share with you my first set of alternate projects that I made with the July 2021 “The Adventure Begins” Paper Pumpkin monthly subscription kit. 

I’m excited to share with you some alternate project ideas I came up with using the contents of the July 2021 “The Adventure Begins” Paper Pumpkin Kit: how you can turn 12 cards into FORTY (more than tripling the cards in the kit) and my "You Shine" 12x12 scrapbook page layout! Click here for photos of all these projects, a video with directions, measurements and tips, and a complete product list linked to my online store. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

This amazing kit contained the supplies shown below to make twelve fun-fold, outdoor adventure-themed cards.

The cards the kit instructs you how to make are fantastic. But I never assemble my kits as is, because I like to show subscribers other ways to use those supplies. I like to think outside the box…see what else I can come up with, and create alternate cards, scrapbook pages and more.

Today I’m sharing with you…

  • How you can turn 12 cards into FORTY (more than tripling the cards in the kit)!
  • And my “You Shine” 12×12 scrapbook page layout.

Watch my video first by clicking here to get to get measurements, directions, and tips (or you can just click on this image below if you are already in my blog post). Scroll down to see close-up photos, access the links that I mentioned in my video, and see a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) that I used to make my creations. Then be sure to visit my blog again soon, because I’ll have many more alternate projects that I’ll be sharing on July 5th and again on July 9th or 10th. 

Here are the cards the kit instructs how to make. (Click here for a link to Stampin’ Up!’s how-to video to help you assemble these as intended.)

Easy Card Layout that Shows Both Paper Sides (Plus New Product Peeks)

Stampin’ Up! designer papers usually come double-sided. And to add them directly to a card or project as a layer means having to choose between the two different designs. But the super easy card design that I’m going to share today allows you to show BOTH sides. This card design is perfect for newer stampers AND for those needing to produce several cards for some holiday or occasion.

Show off BOTH sides of your patterned paper with this quick and easy card design. The cards I share feature the Penguin Playmates Designer Paper, Penguin Place Stamp Set, coordinating Penguin Builder Punch, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. Click here to access measurements, directions, a link to the how-to video, other close-up photos, and links to the products I used. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago step-by-step directions for this card using the Penguin Playmates Designer Paper, Penguin Place Stamp Set, coordinating Penguin Builder Punch, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon from the upcoming new products that debut on August 3. 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, 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).

Bloom Where You’re Planted Vertical Z-fold Card

I’m bringing in another Vertical Z-fold card similar to the one I shared last week. I needed more team birthday cards and ran out of the Hand-Penned paper that I was using. So here is my second version that would appeal to maybe a few more people (I could see giving this card to a female OR a male).

Click here to get directions for making this vertical z-fold card featuring products from the 2021-22 Annual Catalog: the Biggest Wish Stamp Set, the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Paper, and the 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum.

Technique Squad Blog Hop: Alcohol Ink

July 2021 Technique Squad Blog Hop - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Welcome to the July 2021 Technique Blog Hop! See what I have to share. Then check out all the other blogs in the hop to see additional creative ideas that we each came up with using the Alcohol Ink Technique. To follow the hop and see other creative project ideas, simply scroll down and click on the “Next” button. 

This technique is addictive…HIGHLY addictive!! My craft room is starting to fill up with fun samples. I shared a couple finished cards yesterday on YouTube.

(Click here to see my blog post with that video, close up photos of the cards and designs I shared, measurements, and a supply list linked to where you can shop in my online store. )

During that broadcast I brought out this sheet of vellum with a more earthly, masculine look.

Click here to see how to use Stampin’ Blends Markers, high concentration isopropyl alcohol, and various tools and products to get some stunning alcohol ink art designs to use as designer paper. I walk you through the basics. But I also share a couple creative options and tips for those who have already started playing with this technique. Access measurements, more photos, a how-to video with directions, and links to the products I used. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And I put together this card below. The Alcohol Ink technique definitely is a fun background for alcohol drink images. Hahaha!

Click here to see how to use Stampin’ Blends Markers, high concentration isopropyl alcohol, and various tools and products to get some stunning alcohol ink art designs to use as designer paper when you watch my video which will walk you through the basics and give a couple creative options and tips for those who have already started playing with this technique. Access measurements, more photos, and links to the products I used in making this “Straight Up” card.  - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The swirly and marbled looks are also great for underwater and sky images. But really, the designs that you can create are just perfect alone with just a stamped or die-cut sentiment. Each sheet truly becomes a work of art.

Here are the details if you wish to recreate the card that I’m sharing today.

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…

  • Basic White Cardstock 
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored parallel to the short end at 5-1/2″
    • 2-1/2″ x 3″
  • Vellum Cardstock
    • 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ (start with a larger piece if you wish and trim it down after the ink dries)
  • Mossy Meadow Cardstock 
    • 2-5/8″ x 3-1/8″
  • Black satin ribbon from the kit
    • 2-3/4″ x 3-1/4″

Tips… 

  • Watch my video to get tips for this technique. As you see at the end of the video, I added Wink of Stella here and there on my design to create the gold veins.

  • After coloring the whiskey with Dark and Light So Saffron Blends, I colored over it with Wink of Stella. 
  • I added the layered center piece with Dimensionals. 
  • And I finished it off with Gilded Gems that I colored with the Dark Mossy Meadow Blends Marker.

This technique is super popular in crafting right now. You can look it up on Pinterest and see all kinds of methods, tools, color combo inspiration, and end results (some creators even going as far as manipulating the ink itself into imagery – flowers, scenery, faces, words, etc.). You CAN invest in a lot of product to get those results. So that why it’s even more exciting for us in this hop to all share how with just a few Stampin’ Up! products that you may already have on hand for your other paper crafting projects you can get such fantastic similar results. Have fun creating YOUR art!

I hope you enjoyed what I shared. Now be sure to scroll down and click on this “next” button to see what Amy Rudd has to share featuring this technique. I hope our ideas in this hop inspire your creativity!

Hand-Penned Vertical Z-fold Card

I can’t get enough of the beautiful Hand-Penned Designer Paper. And I wanted to create a card that also showed off a bit of the amazing 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum. So I created this fun-fold card which is perfect for showing off multiple designer paper patterns at once.
AND bonus…this Hand-Penned Paper is one of the nine select packs that are on sale this month! Click here for more details.

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

Measurements:

  • Just Jade Cardstock: 4-1/4” x 11” scored parallel to short side at 2-1/8” and 5-1/2”
  • Basic White Cardstock: 3-3/8” x 4″ & 1-1/2” x 4”
  • Hand-Penned Designer Paper: 4″ x 4″ (floral design), 1” x 4” & ½” x 4” (purple design), & 1-1/2″ x 4″ (striped design)
  • 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum (Fresh Freesia): Scrap for punching daisy
  • Highland Heather Shimmer Grosgrain Ribbon: 4-1/2” & 2-1/2”

Directions:

  • Stamp “happy” on small white piece, then emboss & add a sequin. Stamp “HAPPY” and “birthday” on larger white piece.
  • Fold card base into a Z as shown below. Then add the large white piece, the thinest purple designer paper piece, and the striped designer paper piece in that order to the inside area first. There will be an overlap of the white & striped piece.
  • Fold the card shut. Line up the 4” x 4” floral piece so that it fills the front folded flap & covers the layers underneath.
  • Cut a notch in the end of the smaller ribbon and adhere it to the embossed piece (trim off excess). Attach the other purple designer paper piece to the longer ribbon (trim off the excess). Open the card fully and attach this piece under the floral section. Close the card and attach the embossed white piece at the top but also tucked under the front flap a bit.
  • Punch the daisy, cut it in half, and layer it together with a Glue Dot. Add it to the inside of the card and add a sequin.
