Stampin’ Blends 101 with Serene Garden

It’s been awhile since I did a Stampin’ Blends 101 video. And with the new colors that came out in our Annual Catalog this June AND the 6 additional colors that made their appearance in the Holiday Catalog this September, I thought it would be good to introduce them once again! Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers are way easier to use than one might assume. I hope you’ll check out the video tutorial for my card featuring the Serene Garden and upcoming Happiness Surrounds stamp sets. I’m excited to share!

Click here for more information & to watch my video for using Stampin’ Blends alcohol-based markers: Stampin’ Blends 101 with Serene Garden. I shared three versions of this card and used the Serene Garden stamp set, and the limited time Happiness Surrounds (available November 2018) in each one – same layout, just different color combinations…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I demonstrated this card in my latest Facebook Live broadcast this past Wednesday. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and full products list below, scroll through the close-up photos of this card and the other similar cards with the different color combos, and then let me know if you have any questions.

Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate the card I demonstrated.

Broadway Star June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternates

It’s finally time for me to share more ideas that I came up with using the contents of the June 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit! Here is what came in this past month’s kit, You Are My Anchor.

The June 2018 Broadway Star Paper Pumpkin kit…#stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Besides the gift bag & coordinating tag that I shared just over a week ago during the blog hop AND the exclusives that I shared privately with my personal subscribers on the 2nd, today I am sharing:

  • a celebratory cake topper
  • a Starbuck’s cookie straw gift
  • a 12×12 scrapbook page layout
  • a Christmas pocket photo page layout
  • a simple card using leftovers from the kit
  • and a fun z-fold “cake” card

Watch the video first to get to get measurements, directions, and tips. Then scroll down to see close-up photos, links for more information shared in the video, and a list of extra supplies (linked to my online store) mentioned or used to make my creations.

Here are the cards that the kit instructs how to make. The kit makes four of each of these. (I made one each. And then I used the remaining pieces of my kit to make all the rest of my projects shared today. Yep! I only used ONE kit for everything. And I still have several leftover pieces.)

Double Your Dies

A new product will be available starting June 1st in the 2018-19 Annual Catalog. I demonstrated and chatted about the new Big Shot Embossing Mat bundle in my latest Facebook Live broadcast yesterday and made a beautiful butterfly card where I used my dies to emboss rather than cut the cardstock. It’s really amazing how the blue mat in the bundle allows you to do this so that you literally double the value of your dies!

Then I uploaded the recored version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video, check out the measurements for the card pieces below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate the beautiful butterfly card I made in the video.

Measurements…

  • Basic Black cardstock:
    • 4-1/4” x 11” scored at 5-1/2”
  • Calypso Coral cardstock:

And remember that you can flip that sandwich upside down and move the main Big Shot platform under the white impressions pad so you can see where the die is positioned on the cardstock while you are embossing. 😀

French Horn Celebrate Card

Lately there has been a lot to celebrate around here. Besides my new website makeover, we also have a couple birthdays to cheer about. My husband Tim’s was Thursday, and our oldest son Nick’s 12th birthday is tomorrow! So I thought I would share this festive card that I made using the Musical Instruments Framelits and the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.

A fun French Horn Celebrate card made with the Musical Instruments Framelits, the Sheet Music background stamp, the Beautiful You stamp set and the Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape…#stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The angled layer may be intimidating, but it’s really quite easy to achieve this look if you are okay with having a few scraps of cardstock.

Measurements:

  • Early Espresso Cardstock: 11″ x 4-1/4″ folded in half for the card base
  • Very Vanilla Cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the outside…3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ for the inside…and 1/2″ x 2-1/2″ for the banner
  • Fresh Fig Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Gold Foil Sheet: 3″ x 3″
  • Adhesive Sheet: 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon: about 2-1/2″
  • Year of Cheer Washi Tape (thin gold): about 18-19″
  • Year of Cheer Washi Tape (multi-metallic pattern): about 18-19″

Directions:

  • Peel off the printed side of the Adhesive Sheet and adhere to back side of the Gold Foil Sheet. Die-cut the French horn and the treble clef.
  • Stamp the Sheet Music image onto the 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ Fresh Fig…Place the cardstock onto the the rubber-side-up inked up stamp, put scrap paper on top of that, and use hands to press the papers against the inked stamp.
  • Remove the cardstock from the stamp. Then sponge Fresh Fig ink onto the edges of the Fresh Fig cardstock.
  • Adhere to the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Very Vanilla cardstock at an angle using SNAIL adhesive. Be sure that the upper two corners of the Very Vanilla are not exposed but that the Fresh Fig meets the corners so it is covering far enough down on the Very Vanilla.
  • Turn the 4″ x 5-1/4″ Very Vanilla over, and cleanly trim off the excess Fresh Fig (since one of these scrap will still be used).
  • Add two strips of the multi-metallic pattern washi tape so that the tape strips are parallel to the bottom and left edges of the Fresh Fig layer. (I recommend wrapping the ends of the tape to the back side of the Vanilla rather than trimming the excess.) Then add two strips of the gold thin washi tape so that the tape strips are right next to the multi-metallic pattern washi tape strips. Again wrap the ends to the back.

  • Trim the left end of the Very Vanilla strip and the ribbon. Stamp “Celebrate…” on the Very Vanilla strip and attach to the ribbon piece. Then add this to the upper right corner of the card front layer.
  • Attach to this whole later to the front of the Early Espresso card base using Dimensionals. Then peel off the backing from the adhesive and attach the French horn.

  • For the inside of the card, add an angled Fresh Fig scrap to the upper left area of the 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ Very Vanilla piece, stamp the sentiment, add the washi tape and the treble clef, and attach this 3-1/2″ x 4-3/4″ Very Vanilla layer with SNAIL.

So now that my website has been updated, I would love your feedback. Let me know what you like. AND…Let me know if there are things that are confusing, if something isn’t working right, if something is difficult to locate, etc. I am in the initial phases of this transformation and want to be sure all of you are comfortable. (Personally, I am loving my drop-down menus. I’m hoping those make things easier to find. AND did you all see the language translate feature!? I’ve always appreciated visiting blogs that I can translate to English. So I’m excited to have this option for my friends who do not use English as their primary language.)

Wishing you all a fabulously musical weekend!
