Alcohol Markers, Fine Tip Glue & Cute Fruit

I love this new stamp set called Cute Fruit. You can find it here in the online store. Or you can find it on pages 6 & 7 of the Beginner Brochure. (It is not shown in the Annual Catalog.)

One of my favorite images is the watermelon. So I created a card with this image and the “one in a melon” sentiment so I could send out some congratulations cards to a few team members who promoted recently. When I was almost done designing the card, I couldn’t find an embellishment that looked right. So I made my own watermelon seeds by coloring on dried drops of Fine Tip Glue! Blends alcohol-based markers are awesome!

World of Good Wine Bottle Tags

Here is a gift idea that doesn’t involve stamps or ink pads. I used products from the World of Good Suite (a suite that we featured in June for our All Star Tutorials) to make these wine bottle tags. Traveling has been on my mind lately, because this is the week my husband and I would’ve been in Maui on the 2020 Stampin’ Up! incentive trip. We were initially bummed, but we are glad Stampin’ Up! is going to make it up next year when we are hopefully through this pandemic.

It’s fun to embellish bottles of gifted vino with wine bottle tags. I made these with products from the World of Good Suite and coordinating products. Access more photos, measurements, directions, a downloadable PDF, and a supply list by clicking here. Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Stampin’ Up! has postponed that trip to next May and combined it with the 2021 trip which will also be Maui now (instead of the Southern Caribbean cruise). Maui will then become an extended trip for those of us that earn/earned both the 2020 and the 2021 trips. And our boys are excited because even though they had their hearts set on another cruise ship, they have always dreamed of going to Hawaii. And that is now where we will be taking them. 😊

I made this tag in several designs to show off more designer paper patterns…AND because I was having fun with the color variations.

I gifted one of these to each member of my Paper Crafter’s Clubs. And I’ll also be sending them to a few achieving demonstrators in my Stampers With ART Community.

Here are the details if you want to recreate one (or more) of them yourself. After all, I have to believe we will be traveling again someday sooner than later. And what a nice way to gift a bottle of wine (or other beverage) and celebrated someone who will be going on an adventure.

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

PDF Tutorial… Click here to access and download a direction sheet for this wine bottle tag.

Come see what I share on my blog…www.stampyourartout.com Stampin’ Up!® Stamp Your Art Out!

Measurements…

  • Base Cardstock (Basic Black, Misty Moonlight, or Cinnamon Cider): 3″ x 11″ scored parallel to the short end at 3”
  • Middle Cardstock Piece (Basic Black or Misty Moonlight): 1-1/2″ x 2-3/4″
  • World of Good Designer Paper: Two pieces that are 3” x 2-3/4”
  • Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon: 4-1/2”
  • World of Good Memories & More card piece: Trimmed strip of words that are about ¼” x 3” long

Directions…

  • Emboss the middle 1-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ cardstock piece.
  • Color Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon with a Blends Marker (Dark Basic Black, Dark Cinnamon Cider, or Light Misty Moonlight).
  • Attach the colored ribbon and the 3” word strip slightly at a diagonal across the embossed 1-1/2″ x 2-3/4″ cardstock piece trimming off excess from the word strip and wrapping the excess ribbon and securing to the back.
  • Punch a 2” Circle from a scrap piece of paper or cardstock. Adhere this to the center of the top 3” x 3” section at the top of the base cardstock piece. Then line up the punch around this circle and punch the 2” Circle in top of the base piece.
  • Adhere the designer paper pieces at the top and bottom of the lower 3” x 8” section of the base piece. Adhere the middle piece.
  • Then embellish with a few Gold Gilded Gems.

I ran out of the first set of word strips. But I found another card in the Memories & More card pack that worked just as well and made the rest of my tags with those as you can see below.

(If you are receiving this blog post by email, click HERE to see links and follow the hop.)

My project idea that I’m sharing today is a Center Step fun-fold card. I shared how to make a vertical/portrait version of this fold with my Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit on June 20th.

The directions are best explained in a video. So I shared the details during my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday (yesterday). I uploaded the recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) and shared it here in my blog post.

Color-popping Timeless Tulips

I was absolutely in love with a couple cards I saw shared recently by fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Jay Soriano. So I of course had to share what I learned with all of you! It’s an amazing yet simple technique for creating color-popping images. The trick is to stamp images containing shading/depth onto white cardstock with black ink and then color them in using bright markers that range from light to dark. Adding color just outside the images and mounting onto dark cardstock enhances the color-popping even more.

I’m excited to show you a fantastic and easy way to create color-popping images with the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, Stampin’ Blends Markers, and more! I got this great idea from Mitosucrafts.com and just had to share with all of you. Click here to access measurements, a how-to video with tips and tricks, see other close-up photos, and access links to all the products I used. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The images in the Timeless Tulips stamp set are perfect for this. These images were intended to be stamped with colored ink, but when stamped in black and colored in…WOW! Click here to see the cards demonstrated by Jay at Mitosucrafts.com.

I shared my version of Jay’s card using the outgoing 2018-20 In Colors in my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday. Then I also uploaded a slightly smoother recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) which I uploaded 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, more close-up photos, and a product list for the cards I demonstrated/shared. Remember that the 2018-20 In Colors (Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel) will be leaving us soon, so don’t delay shopping if you need ink refills or cardstock.

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

Measurements…

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

Bee Club Cards

Each month my club members are gifted a card made with current products that I feature on my blog. It’s a fun way for me to thank them, and it puts new ideas into their hands to give them even more inspiration. Click here to learn more about joining my Online Paper Crafter’s Club. We are looking for 3-4 new members!

I just put these cards featuring the “spotlighting technique” out in the mail today to my Paper Crafter’s Club members.

Click here to see close-up photos cards featuring the “spotlighting technique” that I sent to my online club members using the new Honey Bee Stamp Set, Detailed Bees Dies, Golden Honey Designer Paper (free during Sale-a-Bration), and Blends Markers . Access measurements, directions, and a list of supplies I used linked to my online store. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Here are the details if you wish to recreated this fun design.

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 Black Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 11″ scored parallel to the short side at 5-1/2”
    • Scrap for punching Starburst
  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • 4″ x 5-1/4″ (for the inside)
    • Scraps for stamping and die-cutting bees
  • Golden Honey Designer Paper (free during Sale-a-Bration!)
    • 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Colored Cardstock (to match Blends Marker)
    • 2-1/4″ x 5/8″

Directions…

  • Stamp and die-cut a large and small bee.
  • Punch a 2″ Circle straight in from the top of the designer paper peice. You may want to consider which end should be the top based on the images within the designer paper. In this example I chose this end because it included both a large and small bee, because in my finished card I wanted to place my die-cut bees over these images of bees in the designer paper to give the appearance of those bees popping off the paper. (Note…Not all the designer paper designs will work with this.)

  • To “spotlight” this section of the designer paper, add color and layer it onto a slightly larger circle of Basic Black Cardstock. In this case I used the Starburst Punch for the larger circular layer. And instead of coloring the details of the bees, I instead just colored over the whole area with my Blends Marker. I used Blends Markers rather than the Stampin’ Write Markers so I would get a smoother flow of color without the streaked look.

  • Attach the colored circle to the Starburst circle using SNAIL Adhesive. Attach the die-cut bees (possibly over the printed designer paper bees) using Dimensionals. Then add more SNAIL to the bottom and add loops of metallic thread. I got my gold metallic thread by trimming pulling the edge threads away from an 8″ length of Gold Metallic Edge Ribbon.
  • Trim off 1-1/8″ from the bottom of the designer paper. Then trim off another 1/8″ to form the gap. Keep these all lined up so the images flow.
  • Stamp and add the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Whisper White to the inside of the card.
  • Add the larger 4″ x 4″ designer paper to the front of the card. Then add the narrower 4″ x 1-1/8″ piece below keeping that 1/8″ gap and forming the illusion of a black strip running through the bottom.
  • Add the layered circle (the spotlighted area of the card) to the front of the card so the designs in the designer paper line back up again.
  • Stamp the sentiment piece. Notch the end with a scissors. And attach to the front of the card.

On a couple of my cards, I embellished with Gold Metallic Pearls instead of metallic thread just for a different look. I should’ve taken a photo of all 22 cards before I put them out in the mail, but tomorrow after my Facebook Live Online Paper Crafting Class (yes, I moved it to Tuesday), I am packing up for a 5-day crafting retreat!! I’m working fast to get everything done before I go. 😃A big thanks to my assistant Vicki for helping me die-cut all those bees!

Here are close ups of four of the finished cards. The bees I stamped line up with the bees in the designer paper on these first two cards.

You can also see that on the first and third cards I embellished with metallic thread. And on the second and last ones I used metallic pearls.
