Poppy Moments Valentines

There is a new Mini Trimmer!! And guess what?! You can create full-size cards with it using a few simple tricks. So on Tuesday during my Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook, I shared how to use this Mini Trimmer!) and I created a pair of Valentine cards featuring some fun new designer paper and the Peaceful Moments bundle (the Peaceful Moments Stamp Set and Poppy Moments Dies).

I uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). And then I was able to share it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the 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 the cards that I demonstrated.

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

Measurements for the pair of cards

  • Granny Apple Green Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 8” scored parallel to short end at 5-1/2”
      OR with Mini Trimmer…fold 8-1/2” x 11” halfway at 5-1/2”, cut in half at 4-1/4”, then open up and trim off 3” from one end
  • Petal Pink Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 8” scored parallel to short end at 5-1/2”
      OR with Mini Trimmer…fold 8-1/2” x 11” halfway at 5-1/2”, cut in half at 4-1/4”, then open up and trim off 3” from one end
    • Scraps for die-cutting little pieces
  • Lovely Lipstick Cardstock
    • 4-1/2” x 3-1/4” (two pieces)
      OR with Mini Trimmer… fold 8-1/2” x 11” halfway at 5-1/2”, use template to cut at 4-1/2”, then open up and trim off 3-1/4” from each end
  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • 4-1/4”x 3” (two pieces)
      OR with Mini Trimmer…fold 8-1/2” x 11” halfway at 5-1/2”, cut in half at 4-1/4”, then open up and trim off 3” from each end
  • Assorted 6×6 Designer Paper (free with Starter Kit order) – All Dressed Up DSP floral pattern
    • 3” x 3” (two pieces)
  • Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon
    • 14” and 12”

After I was done cutting the cardstock for those two cards, here is what I ended up with: 4 more folded card bases, and the small scraps of Lovely Lipstick and Whisper White. So there really wasn’t that much “waste” because these are all very usable pieces.

Another Pyramid Card & Bookmark Subscriber Gifts

Two more ideas for all of you who received the Something for Everything December 2019 Paper Pumpkin kit

I love the challenge each month of coming up with my final project design (a gift for 5 of my lucky subscribers) using my leftovers from what I’ve already created with my kit. And as you may guess from what I’ve made and shared already on December 21 and January 2, there weren’t that many supplies left over from my kit. But I did it!

I used the polka-dot pattern on the envelope flaps and the green circle stickers to punch out 5 pair of snowmen I needed 2 snowmen per project because they are back to back sandwiching the ribbon to make these bookworm bookmarks.

I created an adorable bookworm bookmark and holder with the December 2019 Something for Everything Paper Pumpkin kit. I designed it to send to a few of my Paper Pumpkin subscribers. I also created another pyramid card from this kit. Click here for more photos, directions, measurements and supplies. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here is the bookworm being used in my Outlander book. Can you see the snowman shape upside down in the body of the bookworm? I made and shared a version of these in my last Facebook Live on December 22nd. Below are the measurements and directions for making these bookmarks and holders with the Something for Everything kit supplies.

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…

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock
    • 2-1/4” x 8-1/2″
    • Scrap for punching Starburst for sentiment piece
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • Scrap for punching 2-1/4″ Circle for sentiment layer
  • Kit envelope flaps or circle stickers
    • Scraps for punching two snowman shapes
  • Kit gold sticker sheets
    • Scrap for punching heart from the Dog Builder Punch
    • 1/8″ x 2-1/4″ strip
  • Kit card base
    • 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon, or Old Olive/Pretty Peacock Reversible Ribbon
    • 12″

Directions…

  • Punch two snowmen. (To get two from one circle sticker, cut the sticker in half equally. Then use a sticky note to guide them into the punch. This will help you to fit them in that amount of space better.)

  • Connect them together back-to-back using Tear & Tape Adhesive while sandwiching one end of the ribbon between.
  • Color small black circles in the centers of two large pearls to create eyes. Draw on the mouth and stick on the eyes to make the face for your bookworm.
  • Position the bookworm towards the top of the 2-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ Whisper White base. Then attach (with two Glue Dots on the outer edges) the Basic Black 2-1/4″ Circle so it becomes a pocket for the worm’s body. Then fold up the ribbon and attach (with Tear & Tape Adhesive along the outer edges) the bottom 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″ card base piece so it becomes a pocket for the trailing ribbon.
  • Add the stamped sentiment, the gold heart, and the gold strip.

Here is the original one I made (and sent to Stampin’ Up! for their December 2019 kit Facebook Live).

I shared the first one (on the right in the photo above) along with other alternate projects in a how-to video on December 21st. Click here to see that video and more photos of that card.

I didn’t list directions here for making this type of card since this card is better explained in a video. But because this green card is a little different, I’ve listed a couple tips to finish off this version of this card. You can also see this card shared in Stampin’ Up!’s December 2019 kit Facebook Live. Below are views of all the sides when the card is assembled.

Here are the details if you wish to recreate this.

Measurements…

  • Polka-dot yellow card base from the kit
    • 4″ x 4″ polka-dot yellow piece
  • Striped green card base from the kit
    • 4″ x 4″ solid green piece
    • 4″ x 4″ striped green piece

Extra Tips…

  • Watch the how-to video that I shared on December 21, 2019 for directions for assembling the base of this card.
  • Stamp off to get a lighter Terracotta Tile Orange ink for the trailing flowers.
  • Attach the sentiment piece with a Dimensional under the left edge and a Glue Dot under the right. Trim up the excess AFTER adding to the card.
  • Use an Embossing Buddy to get the “sticky” off the back of the flower and leaf stickers if you wish to raise them up onto Dimensionals. On my card my left flower and both leaves are up on Dimensionals.

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop: Something For Everything

It's a Paper Pumpkin Thing blog hop… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

#APaperPumpkinThing
Welcome to our monthly “A Paper Pumpkin Thing” blog hop! See what I have to share. Then check out all the other blogs in the hop to see additional creative alternate paper crafting project ideas that we each came up with using the contents of the December 2019 Something for Everything Paper Pumpkin kit. To follow the hop and see other creative project ideas, simply scroll down and click on the names of other hop participants.

Here is a photo of the intended projects from this month’s kit: 12 attractive all-occasion cards (4 of 3 designs).

The December 2019 Something for Everything Paper Pumpkin Kit. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’ve already shared a few other alternate projects using the contents of this kit on December 21st.

  • Three K-Cup holders
  • A simple congratulations card
  • A flower pot card
  • A pyramid/teepee card
  • And a 12×12 scrapbook page

CLICK HERE to check them out for more ideas.

Today I have for you two more projects: a beautiful birthday sampler framed décor piece and a super simple thank you/thinking of you card. I’ll start by sharing my card.

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

Click here to see & get details for a beautiful birthday sampler framed décor piece and a super simple thinking of you card that I made with the December 2019 Something for Everything Paper Pumpkin Kit. Plus you can see several other alternate project ideas created with this kit in our blog hop: “A Paper Pumpkin Thing”! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements to prepare…

  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″

Directions…

  • Adhere the Basic Black Cardstock to the front of the Gold Foil-Edged Card with SNAIL.
  • Use 2″ Circle Punch and punch as much of this shape as you can from the corner of a used up sticker sheet from the kit so that the circle includes the “branch cut-out.”
  • Stamp sentiment with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the banner piece from the kit.
  • Add this to the front of the card with Dimensionals from the kit. Add the gold 2″ diameter punched out partial circle above the sentiment so the flat edge meets up or tucks behind the sentiment banner. (Adding these at the same time will help with placement to make everything feel balanced on the card.)
  • Embellish with rhinestones from the kit. I noticed the one on the left on my card shifted a bit before I took the photos.

I found the frame at Hobby Lobby. I can’t find a link to it online. Guessing it was a clearance item? It was originally this black frame with the wood background. And in the center were these welded wire words: boss babe. I removed the words which left the frame with 4 holes. So I attached my sampler to the front of this using the longest of my Metallic Brads.

I recommend adding the Basic Black Cardstock with the brands first and THEN building the designs on top of that. I didn’t do that. I made the sampler first and then found the frame.

I’m not sure if you made the connection already. But I got the inspiration for my scrapbook page that I shared on the 21st after making this sampler. Yes, I shared my scrapbook page first. But I had already made the sampler beforehand when I was planning for this blog hop and loved it so much that I had to turn it into a page, too.

Snowman Meets Little Ladybug (Valentine Bookmark)

I’m very excited for the new 2020 Spring Catalog to debut on January 3rd! Last month I was enjoying creating with some of these new products and discovered how the “cute as a bug” sentiment in the new Little Ladybug stamp set worked so well with the worm shape you can get from the Snowman Builder Punch. I took these supplies and designed a few cards and bookworm bookmarks.

Then on Wednesday during my Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook, I shared how to make one of the cards and the adorable bookmark and holder. I uploaded the recorded version of my Facebook Live video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). And then I was able to share it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below the photos, 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 the cards and bookmarks that I demonstrated.

I ended up cutting a couple inches off the top and adding that to the bottom for the pocket.

Today I have for you a 12″ x 12″ scrapbook page spread focused on family/ancestral photos as the theme with Dia de los Muertos as its inspiration. Dia de los Meurtos (Day of the Dead) is a celebrated October 31 – November 2 and is a time to celebrate, pray for, and remember loved ones who have passed away. Common symbols for the holiday are the skull and skeletons which is why this paper pumpkin kit put this idea in my head. Flowers are important, too. And the colors are bright and vivid. So of course I brought in the Brights pack of cardstock. These colors are amazing against the black background!

Plus you can see several other alternate project ideas created with this kit in our blog hop: “A Paper Pumpkin Thing”! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Use the Basic Black Dark Blends Marker to draw on eyes and noses.
  • Layer the Basic Gray photo mats onto the coordinating Whisper White pieces using SNAIL.
  • Die-cut LOTS of flowers and leaves in a variety of colors.
  • Die-cut the letters for your title.
  • Color the bones of your skeletons.
  • Adhere the Basic Black Cardstock pieces to the 12×12 Poppy Parade page bases. But don’t add adhesive close to the edges. This way when it comes time to trim up the floral die-cuts along the edges, it will be a bit easier to get at them.
  • Adhere layered photo mats using SNAIL.
  • Adhere skulls, tags and hands using SNAIL.
  • Layout the floral pieces, skeletons and letters for the page title. Then sponge a small amount of Multipurpose Liquid Glue across the back of each piece, and one by one add them to the page.

Perennial Essence Wall Art

I just HAD to frame these beautiful Perennial Essence papers!

And even more so after seeing the samples on page 106 in the 2019-20 Annual Catalog.

I’ve been a huge fan of impressionist art (in particular the work of the French impressionist painter, Claude Monet) since I was a young girl. And I about fell over backwards when I opened up my first pack of this beautiful designer series paper (yes, I’m on my 3rd pack already only 3 months into the catalog).

The Perennial Essence Designer Paper is filled with impressionistic painted floral images – perfect for just hanging on the wall as is. Coordinating 3-D paper flowers adds even more. Click here for more details and a list of products I used to make my flowers. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

These are the four designs I framed for my living room. And below are close-up shots of the 3-D flowers I added in the 2nd frame.

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

For the smaller white flowers I used the Medium Daisy Punch. For the larger white flowers I used the Daisy Punch (the larger one). For each flower I punched two of them from Whisper White cardstock. Then I lightly brushed Blushing Bride ink from the middle out using a Sponge Dauber so that each petal had just a touch of pink. I glued then together, then curled the petals forward with a Bone Folder. I added a Daffodil Delight 1/2″ Circle to the center of the larger flowers. Then each flower got a Perennial Essence Floral Center in the middle.

For the purple flowers I used the 1-1/2″ Circle, the Balloon Bouquet Punch, the Magnolia Memories Dies (the skinnier 3-petal shape), and a very narrow (starting at 1/4″ and ending at 1/2″) and long (about 8″) strip of paper. After punching, die-cutting and hand-cutting the pieces from Purple Posy ink, I sponged on swipes of Blackberry Bliss ink – darker in the middle/center and lighter going out towards the end of the “petals.” I curled everything with the Bone Folder.

Then I started by building the outside of the flower by gluing 6 larger balloons/petals to the 1-1/2″ circle base so the tips of the balloons touch each other. Next I glued 6 smaller balloon “petals” on top of that. Again…so the tips of the balloons touched each other. Then I added two Magnolia Memories Die shapes using hot glue instead of just the Multipurpose Glue. And finally I added a tightly rolled up strip in the center using hot glue.

I did NOT use the Balloon Bouquet Punch for the small purple flower. But instead I started with three layered Magnolia Memories Die shapes and ended with a tightly rolled up strip in the center using hot glue.

They were easy to make using the punches and dies, but they did take a bit of time.

Finally I arranged them where I thought they looked best and glued them down. I punched out leaves from the Old Olive vellum and foil paper. I curled them with a Bone Folder and inserted them here and there with Glue Dots.

As we move into the fall season, this artwork on my wall will definitely bring some extra sunshine to those days as they grow colder. The kids are off for their first day of school and will be waking up soon. So I’m off to go help them get ready.
