Loving Additionals New Blends Colors

Did you know that those fun alcohol-based Stampin’ Blends markers doubled in color selection with this new 2018-19 Annual Catalog?

Stampin’ Blends Alcohol-Based Markers from Stampin’ Up!…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

These 11 additional colors (22 new markers – two shades of each color) weren’t available right away when the catalog started, but we really didn’t have to wait too long. On June 28th all the colors were ready. I ordered them right away, but didn’t get around to playing with them until last weekend. Here is one of the cards I made. It features several new products: Highland Heather Blends Combo Pack, Granny Apple Green Blends Combo Pack, Gorgeous Grape & Granny Apple Green cardstock, Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle ribbon, and images from the Beautiful Promenade stamp set.

The July Paper Pumpkin Kit Is a Picnic!

I’m pretty excited to share the new July 2018 Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin kit! I dove in right away and created a few alternate ideas before heading off on our Seattle/Alaska vacation. These are the fun 3×3 cards and baskets that you CAN make if you follow the kit instructions.

Click here to see fun alternate project ideas I created with the July 2018 Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin kit …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

There are enough supplies to make 12 cards (4 of each design) and 4 baskets.

Click here to see fun alternate project ideas I created with the July 2018 Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin kit …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

But of course I LOVE to see what else I can create with these supplies. And oh my goodness! I can’t wait to show you this first one. (It is my favorite alternate project idea from this kit that I came up with so far!)

This kit screams picnics. Right?! And if you turn those bridge-fold cards upside-down, they look exactly like picnic tables! So that’s what made my mind go in this direction. Ta-da!

Click here to see this fun picnic table (bridge fold) card I created with the July 2018 Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin kit …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The side that is usually the front of the card on a bridge-fold is now the back on this one. It would be on this (on the white side panels) where you would write a personal message and sign your card.

Click here to see this fun picnic table (bridge fold) card I created with the July 2018 Picnic Paradise Paper Pumpkin kit …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

If you wish to recreate this with your kit contents, here are the details.

Measurements of extra products:

  • Soft Suede Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 8″ scored at 1-1/4″ and 2-1/2″ on each end and folded for the card base
  • Whisper White Cardstock: two pieces that are 1-1/8″ x 4-1/8″ & scrap for punching out three 1/2″ circles

Measurements of kit products:

  • Basket Handles: two that are 5-3/8″ long & four that are 4″ long (two cut in half)
  • Red/White Cotton/Tissue Paper: 3-3/4″ x 3-3/4″

Extra Stampin’ Up! Products I Used:  See below for a full list of extra supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions:

  • Add brads to the holes of the two longer basket handle strips.
  • After folding card base, stamp the middle area of the back side.
  • Adhere Whisper White cardstock pieces to the outer panels. Flatten so one side is extended open and the other is collapsed into a z-fold. Then attach 5-3/8″ basket handle strips as shown using Tear & Tape adhesive. (If you need more guidance on how to make a bridge-fold card, click here.)
  • Punch out three 1/2″ Whisper White circles, remove the “stars” from three large blueberries, and attach the 1/2″ Whisper White circles on the backs of the blueberries so that the white fills in the space of the missing “stars.”
  • Using Mini Dimensionals from the kit and SNAIL (or Glue Dots from the kit), add the three blueberries to the basket handle strips as shown.
  • Attach three leaf stickers. (Use an Embossing Buddy to remove the stickiness from any leaves that are extended beyond the strips or the cardstock by pouncing it a few times. This tool releases a fine powder.)

  • Flip the card over and attach the shorter basket handles to the “seats.” Then carefully squeeze out a drop of liquid adhesive from the Fine Tip Glue to each hold. When this dries (and give it plenty of time to do so) it will be clear and shiny. This is a great way to give the appearance of smaller brads (or nails in the wood).

  • After the Fine Tip Glue has dried, attach the red/white picnic tablecloth using plenty of SNAIL adhesive on all four sides. Trim off the excess on the top and bottom.
  • Stamp the sentiment onto a rounded label piece and attach to the front of the card as shown using a few Mini Dimensionals.
  • Punch out three 1/2″ circles (smaller blueberries) from the scrap piece in the kit, and attach them (one on a Dimensional) around the label.
  • Finally “fussy cut” four small leaf shapes from the leaf sticker sheet and attach around these blueberries.

Tropical Leaves Team Make-n-Take Card

Last week my Stampers With ART group had an online team gathering on Facebook. (Facebook makes it easy for all of us across the country to “be in the same place at the same time.”) And many opted in to get supplies for the make-n-take projects. I send the supplies to each participant ahead of time, and then during the event I share in a Facebook Live broadcast (or pre-recorded video) what to do to put the projects together. I’ve shared two of the projects here on my blog already:

Today I want to share another that we made with products from the Tropical Escape suite.

Click here to see how to make a fun and simple card with products from the Tropical Escape Suite: Tropical Escape designer paper, Tropical Chic stamp set and Tropical Thinlits Dies…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements:

  • Crumb Cake Cardstock: 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded for the card base
  • Early Espresso Cardstock: 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ for the inside of the card, scrap for stamping and punching 2-1/4″ circle & scraps for stamping and die-cutting leaves
  • Tropical Escape Designer paper: 3″ x 3″
  • Linen Thread: 6″

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

Directions:

  • Stamp the sentiment and punch it out with the 2-1/4″ Circle Punch so that the words are close to the bottom of the circle.
  • Lay the sentiment on the 3″ x 3″ designer paper (don’t attach) so the words fall just below the top edge of the designer paper. Then trim off the top portion of the circle.
  • Stamp and die-cut the leaves.
  • Add the Linen Thread through the holes of the button and tie in a knot or bow.
  • Assemble as shown. The sentiment and the light green leaf are attached with Dimensionals. The button is attached with a Glue Dot.

Here are a few more photos sharing both versions that I made of this card.

Alaskan Cruise Pop-Up Card Swap

Our 2018 Seattle/Alaska family vacation begins today!! And we are super excited for this Stampin’ Up! earned incentive trip!

Alaskan Cruise Stampin’ Up! Incentive Trip 2018!…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

This is only the 2nd incentive trip for our boys. The first was to Disney World back when they were just 5 and 6 years old. (Oh, they were so little then!) And now they get to go on their first cruise ship and see the beauty of Alaska at the ages of 11 and 12!! It was fun to receive our travel documents in the mail a few weeks ago. That always makes things so “official.”

Our travel documents from Stampin’ Up! for our 2018 Alaskan Cruise Incentive Trip!!…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I’m going to have limited internet access, so my guess is that I’ll be sharing photos AFTER my trip rather than during. But I’ll see what I can do.

 

I’m participating in both the 3-D swap and the card swap that Stampin’ Up! organizes for the incentive trip. I already shared photos and directions for my 3-D one (the altered gable box) on June 25th. So today I’d like to share with you my card swap (which is also happens to be 3-Dish). It’s another freestanding pop-up card similar to the one I shared last week. In fact, I showed it off towards the end of my last Facebook Live broadcast that you can watch if you go to my July 12th post.

This is how it looks when flat. It fits into a medium envelope too, because it measures 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2.”

Click here for more information on how to make this super fun freestanding pop up card (my Alaskan cruise swap card!) with products from the Animal Expedition Suite: the Animal Outing stamp set, the Animal Friends Thinlits dies, and the Leaf Ribbon. I’ve also included a link to a tutorial video …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And this is how it looks when it’s popped up and standing.

I’ve also included a link to a tutorial video …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements:

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock:
    • 11” x 4-1/4” scored at 5-1/2” and then at 1” …2-3/4” …& 3-3/4” in both directions
    • Scrap for stamping one & die-cutting two rhinos (one is behind the stamped one)
    • Scrap for stamping & punching 1-1/4” Circle
  • Window Sheet:
    • 2-3/4” x 5-1/2”
  • Call Me Clover Cardstock:
    • Scrap for punching 1-3/8” Scallop Circle
  • Call Me Clover Leaf Ribbon:
    • about 9″

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

Directions:

  • Round the top two corners of the Window Sheet piece with the Trio Punch.
  • Emboss the already scored 11” x 4-1/4” Whisper White piece two times – on each side of the middle score line – with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. Your embossing folder will be coming in from the side of the cardstock if you are holding the cardstock vertically (not from the bottom). This way it will reach to the middle and avoid embossing the outer 1″ sections.
  • Watch the video on the July 12th post to see where to cut the slit in the 5-1/2″ score line, how to fold the Whisper White card base, where to add the Tear & Tape Adhesive, and how to put together the base with the inserted Window Sheet.
  • After watching the video and assembling the base, add the accents and sentiment…
  • Punch the Scallop Circle. Stamp and punch the sentiment. Stamp and die-cut one rhino. Die-cut a second rhino shape.
  • Use the Watercolor Pencils to add color to the stamped/die-cut rhino/bird. Then use the Blender Pen to smooth/blend the color.

Click here for more information on how to make this super fun freestanding pop up card (my Alaskan cruise swap card!) with products from the Animal Expedition Suite: the Animal Outing stamp set, the Animal Friends Thinlits dies, and the Leaf Ribbon. I’ve also included a link to a tutorial video …#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

  • Attach sections of Leaf Ribbon to the lower back side of the stamped/die-cut rhino using Glue Dots. Then “sandwich” the leaf ribbon by adhering the stamped rhino die-cut to the unstamped one.
  • Close the card flat and add a couple Dimensionals just above where the top of the folded white sits when the card is closed. Attach the rhino to these Dimensionals so the top of the rhinoceros does not go beyond the top of the Window Sheet. (On my card, I have the rhino in the upper right corner of the Window Sheet area.)
  • Attach the Whisper White punched sentiment to the Call Me Clover Scallop Circle using SNAIL Adhesive. Then attach sections of Leaf Ribbon with Glue Dots, and add this piece on the left side of the front 1″-wide section (when the card is open) using Dimensionals.

Isn’t it too pretty to use!?! But it’s time. I’m finally going to break in my pristine, overly protected, super cherished carryon luggage that I got as a recognition gift when I made the Global Top 100 for 2017. It needs to stop sitting in my closet.

This is the suitcase gift I received for being one of the Global Top 100 Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators during the 2017 year…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I love, love, LOVE this floral pattern!

OH! That reminds me…Remember the accordion folder and Tic Tac treat holder that my friend and upline, Susan Campfield made for me as an OnStage attendee gift? I shared photos of it with you on April 13, 2018.

Gifts from my upline for the attending the April 2018 OnStage – click here for a link to her blog where she shares how she made this accordion folder and Tic Tac treat holder…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Since I posted it, I’ve had several people ask me how she made my gift. Good news!… Susan just recently posted directions on her blog. You can click here to learn how she put this gift together.

Show Off Both Sides With This Card Design

Stampin’ Up!’s designer paper is typically double-sided. That means that taping it down onto a project forces you to pick only one side to show off. And that’s great if the other side doesn’t “float your boat.” But if you like both sides, then this is a card design will allow you to share BOTH sides! (This was a make-n-take that my Stampers With ART Stars got to make last week during our online team event on Facebook.)

Show off BOTH sides of your designer paper with this card layout! Click here to see three cards I put together in this same way using products from the Animal Expedition suite in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog: the Animal Outing Stamp Set & the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper....#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The measurement of the designer paper is only 4″ wide, so you can see a border of the solid colored cardstock all the way around when closed. Cutting it this way also allows you to get 6 pieces from one 12″ x 12″ sheet with this 4″ x 5-1/4″ measurement. Bonus – you use your paper wisely, too! (If you are a designer series paper fan, then you may want to check out the BUY 3, GET ONE FREE promotion happening this month.)

Measurements:

  • Shaded Spruce Cardstock: 5-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 1″ and folded for the card base
  • Smoky Slate Cardstock: scrap for stamping and punching the 2-1/4″ circle
  • Calypso Coral Cardstock: 3-1/2″ 4-3/4″
  • Animal Expedition Designer paper: 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Basic Black Twine: 30-32″

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

Directions:

  • Stamp and punch the sentiment piece making sure the sentiment is right justified in the circle. Add adhesive to the back.
  • Fold the card base piece on the score line and reinforce the fold using the Bone Folder.
  • Lay the designer paper under the 1″ wide area of the card base so that it is centered on the “inside” of the card. Fold the 1″ wide section over as you tuck in and adhere the sentiment circle. Make sure your designer paper stays centered as you position and adhere the circle.
  • Now add adhesive under the 1″ wide area, center that designer paper again and press the 1″ wide area down to stick it to the designer paper.
  • Wrap the twine twice around and tie in a bow.
  • Add a leaf trinket with 1 or 2 Glue Dots.
  • Open up the card and add the inside cardstock layer.

I made two more cards with this designer paper and just changed out the main two cardstocks colors.
