Peaceful Prints -- Gift Bag

Hello!

Once I am done making my Christmas cards, I have strips of Designer Series Paper left over.  For my Christmas Card classes, I used these left over strips to decorate gift totes.  Inside the gift totes were the class kits, photos of the projects and supplies lists, and a few surprises for the class attendees.  The tote also served as a way for the attendees to carry their completed projects from table to table as they made their projects.  In addition, the attendees now have a gift tote that they can use for the holidays. 

I use a somewhat "kitchen sink" approach to decorating gift totes.  This means that I look at what I have for left overs and scraps in paper and embellishments and see how they combine with some handy punches or simple dies.  The key is to make the process quick and simple.  Keep in mind that folks are not interested in the gift packaging other than to note whether it's attractive.  Beyond that, it's all about the gift inside the packaging.

PeacefulPrints_GiftBag

This project begins with three strips of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration -- Retired):  4" x 8", 2-1/2" x 7", and 1-1/2 x 7".  Banner tails were cut into the bottom end of the strips with Paper Snips and the top edges of the strips adhered in a grouping 5-1/2" wide along the center of the top edge of the gift tote using Tear & Tape Adhesive placed along the top edge of the tote just below the tote handles.  A piece of Real Red cardstock was die cut with the "v" edge die from the Basic Borders dies and then embossed with the Snowflake die from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.  The cardstock was adhered over the paper strips using Tear & Tape Adhesive.  

A snowflake from the Wonderful Snowflakes was adhered to the embossed Real Red cardstock with the center of the snowflake 1-1/4" from the left edge of the cardstock.  A piece of Basic Black cardstock was punched with the scalloped edge oval from the Double Oval punch and adhered at the center of the Real Red embossed cardstock.  The Deer Builder punch was used to punch a deer from the Buffalo Check pattern from the Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper and adhered at the center of the punched oval using Stampin' Dimensionals behind the body of the deer and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals behind the head and neck of the deer.  

A tag for the gift tote was made by punching a piece of Basic White cardstock with the Essential Punch tag.  The handheld 1/8" circle punch (Retired) was used to punch a hole for the twine.  A narrow strip of Buffalo Check pattern paper was adhered just above the bottom edge of the tag.  A piece of Real Red Braided Linen Trim (Retired) was threaded through the punched hole and the the tag tied to the tote handle adjacent to the paper strips.

Peaceful Deer -- It's The Best Time Of Year

Hi There!

I finished up my Annual Christmas Card classes this past weekend and it was so wonderful to see everyone!  I've been sharing the cards with you and you can see four of the other cards for the class by clicking here, here, here, and here.  Participants in the classes made 3 cards each of 5 different designs.  The card you see below is the final card design.  I've made a couple of other cards using the Peaceful Deer Bundle using very similar designs.  You can see those cards here and here.

PeacefulDeer_BestTimeOfTheYear

This card begins with a panel of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Real Red cardstock.  The panels were adhered at the center of the Garden Green card front.  A strip of Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper was matted with a slightly wider strip of Real Red cardstock (the right and left ends of the two strips of paper are flush).  The strips were adhered across the Designer Series Paper panel with the bottom edge of the Real Red cardstock strip 1" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper panel and the right and left edges of the narrow strips flush with the right and left edges of the Designer Series Paper panel.

A piece of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper was die cut with the 2-5/8" circle die, from the Layering Circles dies, and matted with a piece of Basic Black cardstock die cut with the 2-7/8" scallop circle die, also from the Layering Circles dies.  The die cut circles were adhered over the right side of the horizontal strips using Stampin' Dimensionals.  The right edge of the scallop circle is 1/8" from the right edge of the Designer Series Paper panel and the bottom edge of the scallop circle is 1/2" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper panel.

The "It's The Best Time Of Year" greeting was stamped on a narrow strip of Basic White cardstock using Garden Green ink.  The greeting was matted with a slightly larger piece of Garden Green cardstock and adhered at the bottom of the die cut circles with the right end of the greeting extending beyond the edge of the circles and flush with the right edge of the Designer Series Paper panel.

The "Oh What Fun" deer image was stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The deer was punched with the Deer Builder punch and adhered to the die cut circles using Stampin' Dimensionals (behind the body of the deer) and Mini Stampin' Dimensionals (behind the head and neck of the deer).

The 1/4" and 3/4" star dies from the Stitched Stars dies were used to die cut stars (one large and two small) from the Be Dazzled 6" x 6" Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The stars were adhered to the Designer Series Paper panel using Mini Glue Dots.

PeacefulDeer_BestTimeOfTheYear_Inside

The "Wishing You A Wonderful Year And Friendships Dear" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of a Basic White panel using Garden Green ink.  A narrow strip of Basic Black cardstock was adhered behind the top edge of a strip of Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper.  The paper was adhered along the bottom edge of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

PeacefulDeer_BestTimeOfTheYear_Envelope

The deer image was stamped at the center of the envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  

I realize that the Designer Series Papers that I used for this card were only available during Sale-A-Bration; however, many of you still have the paper.  For those of you who don't have the paper, don't despair.  The simple design of this card lends itself well to a variety of Christmas Designer Series Papers.  Just let the colors in the background panel of paper help you determine the colors you will use to frame the deer in the circle, the color of the deer, and the cardstock colors.  That's the great thing about Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers -- all the colors coordinate!

Merry Snowflakes -- It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

Hello!

Here's another card designed for my Annual Christmas Card classes.  I'll be finishing up the classes this weekend and it's been so fun to see everyone and to spend time creating!  You can see three of the other cards for the class by clicking here, here, and here.

We don't get cold enough for snow in this part of Florida but I have a few customers in my Christmas Card Classes who have come to expect at least one Christmas card that features snowflakes as they grew up in areas where snow was a major factor in their Winter memories.  The colors for this card come from the colors in the layers of ice I saw in the glaciers in Alaska.  

MerrySnowflakes_ItsTheMostWonderfulTime

This card begins with a card base of Coastal Cabana with the card front embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder.  A panel of Basic White cardstock was embossed with the snowflake 3D embossing folder from the Wintry 3D Embossing Folders.  Narrow strips of Gold Foil Sheets were adhered along the top and bottom edges of the embossed snowflake panel with the right and left edges of the strips flush with the right and left edges of the embossed snowflake panel.  The snowflake panel was adhered at the center of a slightly larger panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock with the right and left edges of the snowflake panel flush with the right and left edges of the Bermuda Bay panel.  The panels were then adhered to the card front with the right and left edges of the panels flush with the right and left edges of the card front, the top edge of the Bermuda Bay panel 5/16" below the top edge of the card front, and the bottom edge of the Bermuda Bay panel 7/16" above the bottom edge of the card front.

The "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year" greeting, from the Holly Jolly Wishes stamp set, was stamped on a piece of Pool Party cardstock using Bermuda Bay ink.  The 1-3/16" x 2-3/4" tag, from the Tailor Made Tags dies, was used to die cut the greeting with the hole for the ribbon positioned to the left of the greeting.  Gold Shimmer Ribbon was threaded through the ribbon hole and tied into place with a piece of White Baker's Twine from the Baker's Twine Essentials Pack.  The tag was adhered near the lower right corner of the snowflake embossed panel using Stampin' Dimensionals with the right end of the tag 1/4" from the right side of the card front and the bottom edge of the tag 1" above the bottom edge of the card front.

The three snowflakes from the Merry Snowflakes stamp set were stamped on Basic White cardstock:  the largest snowflake with Pool Party ink, the medium sized snowflake with Coastal Cabana ink, and the smallest snowflake with Bermuda Bay ink.  The snowflakes were die cut using the corresponding dies from the Stitched Snowflakes dies and adhered to the embossed snowflake panel using Stampin' Dimensionals:  the largest snowflake at the upper left corner, the medium snowflake just above the right end of the greeting tag, and the small snowflake just to the left of the ribbon end of the tag.

MerrySnowflakes_ItsTheMostWonderfulTime_Inside

The Stitched Snowflakes dies includes a really awesome embossing die that I used on a strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  A narrow strip of Pool Party cardstock was adhered behind the top edge of the Bermuda Bay strip and the strips were adhered along the bottom edge of a Basic White panel.  The "Snowflake Wishes for a Merry Christmas" sentiment, from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set, was stamped at the upper center of the panel using Bermuda Bay ink.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

MerrySnowflakes_ItsTheMostWonderfulTime_Envelope

The snowflake 3D embossing folder was used to emboss the envelope flap of the Medium Basic White Envelope.  (I'm sorry for the funky background colors, but it was the only way I could get the embossing to show up...)

I'll be back soon with the final card from my Christmas Card classes.

Stamp Review Crew -- Forever Fern

Banner

Hello!  Welcome to the Stamp Review Crew Blog Hop featuring the Forever Fern stamp set.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

The Stamp Review Crew is an international group of Stampin' Up! Demonstrators who gather for a blog hop the first, third, and (sometimes the fifth) Mondays of the month to review a single stamp set.  The number of participants varies from hop to hop, but the ideas are plentiful as we take a stamp set through its paces.  By the time you've traveled through the hop, you are sure to find a number of innovative ways to use the featured stamp set.  So sit back, relax, and get ready to start pinning ideas to your Pinterest board!

To see the line up of artists for this week's hop, click here.  If you've already joined the hop and are traveling forward, you've arrived from Cindy's blog where you were presented with an amazing project to inspire your creativity.  If you're traveling backwards through the hop, you'll be traveling to Bronwyn's blog to see her beautiful project.

I've been wrapped up with Christmas for the last couple of months so I thought it would be fun to use the Forever Fern stamp set to create a card with Fall colors and some sparkle.  

ForeverFern_ToAFriendWhoMakesMeSmile

This card begins with a panel of Vellum cardstock.  Stampin' Blends Markers in the colors of Dark Cajun Craze, Dark Cinnamon Cider, Dark Daffodil Delight, and Dark Pumpkin Pie were scribbled over the panel and then saturated with spritzes of 99% alcohol.  The vellum was tilted a bit while the alcohol was still liquid to move the colors a bit (but not enough to let them turn muddy) and then allowed to dry.  [Tip:  Work in a well-ventilated area.  You can speed up the drying time by using the Heat Tool on the LOW setting with the tip of the tool 8-10 inches from the surface of the vellum.]  Once the vellum was dry, then alcohol was lightly spritzed over the vellum again to create the bubbles.  To do this, hold the spritzer 10-12 inches above the surface of the vellum and make a short burst of alcohol mist.  Once the vellum is dry, adhere the vellum to a panel of Basic White cardstock. 

ForeverFern_ToAFriendWhoMakesMeSmile_Inset

The Vellum/Basic White panels were then adhered at the center of a slightly larger mat of Cajun Craze cardstock and then adhered at the center of the Crushed Curry card front. 

The large leafy branch, from the Forever Flourishing dies, was used to die cut a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and a piece of Gold Metallic paper from the Gold & Rose Gold Metallic Specialty Paper.  The Gold die was adhered to the Cajun Craze die using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive with the two pieces slightly offsetting each other to allow the Cajun Craze to create a drop shadow for the Gold.  The dies were adhered to the vellum using teeny tiny dots of Multipurpose Liquid adhesive with the stem of the die pointing toward the upper right corner of the vellum and the topmost leaf of the die pointing toward the lower left corner of the vellum.

Two pieces of Cajun Craze cardstock were die cut using the banner die from the Tasteful Labels dies.  The "to a friend that makes me smile" greeting was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Cajun Craze ink and die cut with the large lace-edge circle, also from the Tasteful Labels dies.  Banner tails were cut into the left and right ends of a narrow piece of Gold Metallic paper.  The greeting label was created by adhering the gold banner behind the center of the circular greeting label and then adhering the Cajun Craze banners behind the gold banner (the Cajun Craze banners will overlap a bit).  The greeting was adhered near the lower left corner of the vellum with the bottom edge of the circular greeting 3/16" above the bottom edge of the vellum and the left edge of the circular greeting 5/8" from the left edge of the vellum.

ForeverFern_ToAFriendWhoMakesMeSmile_Inside

The rounded leaves stem image was stamped at the lower right corner of a Basic White panel using Cinnamon Cider ink.  The image was cleaned and then reinked with Pumpkin Pie ink and stamped on a piece of Basic White cardstock.  The image was cleaned and then reinked with Cajun Craze ink and stamped on another piece of Basic White cardstock.  The two pieces of Basic White cardstock were die cut with the corresponding die from the Forever Flourishing dies.  The Pumpkin Pie die cut image was adhered at the the lower right corner and the Cajun Craze die cut image was adhered at the upper left corner of the Basic White panel.  A narrow strip of Gold Metallic paper was adhered along the bottom edge of the Basic White panel with the right and left edges of the strip flush with the right and left edges of the panel and the bottom edge of the strip 1/16" above the bottom edge of the panel.  The panel was adhered at the center of the inside sentiment area of the card base.

ForeverFern_ToAFriendWhoMakesMeSmile_Envelope

The rounded leaf image was randomly stamped across the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope using Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, and Pumpkin Pie inks.  Tip:  Place a piece of scrap paper between the envelope flap and the body of the envelope to keep the stamping confined to the envelope flap.

I hope you've been inspired by the project I made using the Forever Fern stamp set.  Card Measurements, Supplies I used to make this card, and a photos of a few other cards I've made using the Forever Fern stamp set are provided below.

Whimsical Trees -- Let Your Heart Be Light

Hello!

It's been a month since I last posted and I'm sorry I haven't been able to post but it has all been for a good cause.  The last two months I've been cutting paper, die cutting, embossing, and packing card kits for my annual Christmas card classes.  I had the first two classes this past weekend and I'm thrilled to report that things went really well.  The folks who attended made 15 cards -- 3 cards each of 5 different designs.  Two of the designs have already been featured in previous blog posts and you can see them by clicking here and here.  I'll be sharing the remaining designs with you in the next week or so.

The concensus from the first two classes is that this card is the fan favorite.  When you have a set of papers like the Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper, you don't need to do much to enhance the beautiful images with their silver accents.  So, for this card, I let the paper do the talking.

WhimsicalTrees1_LetYourHeartBeLight

This card begins with a panel of Peaceful Prints Specialty Designer Series Paper matted with a slightly larger panel of Basic Gray cardstock.  The panels were adhered to the Smoky Slate card front. 

A piece of Shimmery White cardstock was die cut using the 2-5/8" circle die, from the Layering Circles dies.  The two solid tree with long trunks dies, from the Christmas Trees dies were used to die cut 3 pieces of foil from the Silver Foil Specialty Pack:  the thin trees for the darker shades of foil and the wider tree for the lightest shade of foil.  The trees were adhered to the die cut circle using Mini Glue Dots and the trunks of the trees that overhang the bottom edge of the circle were trimmed with Paper Snips.  The circle was adhered to the Designer Series Paper panel with the bottom edge of the circle 7/8" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper and the right edge of the circle flush with the right edge of the Designer Series Paper.

The "Let Your Heart Be Light" greeting, from the Whimsical Trees stamp set, was stamped on Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The greeting was adhered to a Basic Gray banner created with the Banners Pick A Punch with the right edges of the greeting and banner flush and the banner tails pointing to the left.  The banner was adhered to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals with the right edge of the banner flush with the right edge of the Designer Series Paper and the bottom edge of the banner 7/8" above the bottom edge of the Designer Series Paper.

Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were scattered among the die cut trees on the Shimmery White circle and a bow tied from the Silver cord in the Simply Elegant Trim was adhered to one of the trees using a rolled up Mini Glue Dot.

WhimsicalTrees_LetYourHeartBeLight_Inside

The "May The Love Of The Season Warm Your Home & Fill Your Heart" sentiment was stamped at the upper center of a panel of Basic White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The tall ornamented tree was stamped at the lower left corner of the panel using Basic Gray ink and the short ornamented tree was stamped to the right of the taller tree using Smoky Slate ink.  The panel was adhered at the inside sentiment area of the card base.

WhimsicalTrees_LetYourHeartBeLight_Envelope

A piece of Peaceful Place Specialty Designer Series Paper was adhered to the envelope flap of a Medium Basic White Envelope.  Paper Snips were used to trim the excess paper away using the edge of the envelope flap as a guide.

With 30 people making 3 each of this card, I would have had to purchase quite a lot of the Designer Series Paper if I could only get 12 cards out of each pack of paper.  To solve this problem, I chose two other pieces of this beautiful paper for the card fronts -- and each person made one of each of the three different pieces of Designer Series Paper.  The only difference was the color of the mat behind the Designer Series Paper and the banner for the greeting.

WhimsicalTrees2_LetYourHeartBeLight

WhimsicalTrees3_LetYourHeartBeLight

I wish that the photographs could have picked up how the silver accents in the papers make these cards so special.  In any case, you can see that the same basic card design is used for all three cards.  Isn't it amazing how the mood of the card changes with the different paper used for the background?  

I'll be back soon with another card from the Christmas card classes.
