Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat

August 5, 2019

I thought it was about time for a masculine card…
but then my sister-in-law would love this buck come November!

Did you notice the custom sizes of the Stitched Rectangle Dies? In the past, I have made some of my dies sand punches cut in different sizes by just lining up the cutting edge of the dies on an already cut piece of cardstock. But, this was the first time I did it with my Stitched Rectangles…oh my gosh…it was so easy because the stitches on the die fall right into the already cut stitches! So there you have it…those Stitched Rectangles have just grown even more versatile!!!

Some great images in the Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat stamp set:

Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Bundle Sneak Peek

May 17, 2019

I am in love again…this time…with the Stampin’ Up Sailing Home Suite!
A Bridge Fold Card is a perfect way to showcase the pieces in the stamp set and the dies:)
I used the NEW  In Color Seaside Spray with the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper-
it matched wonderfully with the sailboat pattern piece I used.

In the card below, I used Balmy Blue which is listed on the color palette of the DSP.
You can see how it is a brighter blue than Seaside Spray which has a hint of gray with it.

You can get a sample of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper if you get my
2019-20 Annual Stampin’ Up Catalog Paper Shares !

See post HERE.

Here is the back of the Bridge Fold card where you write your message:

The measurements for this  Bridge Fold are:

Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 8″ scored on the 8″ side at 1-1/4″, 2-1/2″, 5-1/2″, and 6-3/4″
DSP: 1″ x 4″ on each side
Middle and back panels: 2-3/4″ x 4″
Bridge: Navy 1″ x 5-1/2″, White 3/4″ x 5-1/4″

Here is another Bridge Fold card I did with a Video.

Stampin’ Up Geared Up Garage

May 6, 2019

My Stampin’ Up Pal and Roomie, Janet Munden, gave me a super cool card! I just had to share it but then kind of destroyed a part of it in transit so I had to repair it ever so very slightly…I just put a black border around the car and the sentiment. Oh, and I had a gear die in my stamp case so I added it to the card:) A great card to get ready for Father’s Day!

I love her layout and the embossing she did with the gear dies using the Big Shot Embossing Mats. And the little Classic Garage Metal Elements are a perfect touch!

Here is Chad from the Home Office explaining how to emboss with our dies:

Janet always finishes her cards on the inside so nicely, too!

Stampin’ Up Geared Up Garage Bundle Sneak Peek Video Tutorial

December 14, 2018

Technology…phone uploading and computer finally working correctly…

It’s done…my Wednesday Video on Friday!

I played around with the NEW Stampin’ UP Geared Up Garage Bundle coming out on January 3, 2019. Such a cool stamp set with coordinating framelits! So cool that the gentleman sitting next to me on the plane commented how cool the ’69 Mustang was and how it brought back memories for him while I was putting it together!

 

I used the Classic Garage 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper. Let me tell you- it is AWESOME! One of the best DSPs I have seen!

You can easily adhere a gift card on the front opening part on the card, too.

 

I colored my toolbox with my Stampin’ Blends. I left the card “generic” until I add the occasion to it.

Measurements:
Basic Black Card Base: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side, 3″ x 2″ for car, 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ for gears (or use scraps)
Basic Gray shadow under car: 3″ x 2″
Crushed Curry Flap on front: 3″ x 8″ scored at 4″ on the 8″ side
DSP: (2) 1″ x 4″

I got an awesome card from one of my favorite friends and stampers, Janet Munden.
I was so wowed by her card that I totally cased it!

I was so impressed with Janet’s layout- isn’t that burlap ribbon just so cool?
I thought the Farmhouse Designer Series Paper was a perfect addition, too!

Take a look at the fantastic Farmhouse Christmas Bundle:

That picket fence is so darn cute…I gotta make a card with it to show you…
