Time Marches On | 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the 3rd Thursday BLOG HOP for March 2021.  This month we are focused on the theme “TIME MARCHES ON”!  And boy, I can’t believe it’s the middle of March already.  Here in the states, we have Sprung Forward for Daylight Savings Time.  The weather is trying to warm up a bit, and spring bulbs are starting to push their heads up to bloom again.

 

For myself, we are in the midst of selling our home and moving for a work relocation.  So, life is a bit crazy, stressed, and altogether out of sorts.  But I just start each day with a new TO-DO list and hope I can accomplish it! 

 

So, when I started to work on my project for the Blog Hop today, and the theme of Time Marches On… I immediately thought of the Sending Sunshine stamp set and my desire to see a sunrise on a nice warm beach somewhere!  Well, that may not happen for me anytime soon, but here’s to hoping.

 

I do have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video to share, where I take you through my creative process of creating the card.  I use the Stamparatus Tool today.  Hopefully my demonstration will help you understand how easy it can be to make multiple cards with little effort.  The tricky part is getting it set up, but then, no problem at all.  It really just takes a little practice.

So what did you think?  The Stampartus is really a pretty cool tool.  And this Sending Sunshine stamp set has some wonderful images to make beautiful sunrises.

 

Now that you have visited with me, and I hope my project may have inspired you, it’s time to send you along to the next blog with Susan Reitmeyer Legits .  Please leave me and the other paper crafters comments on our posts.  We just love to know what you think of our ideas.

  • Patterned Paper 5 ½ x 1 ¼ [ could a different height]

  • Score your card at the half point. Here it was 4 ¼.

  • Then score two more lines on the face of your card.  I added ¼ inch to the DSP height to create a scored frame around the DSP.

  • In this sample, I scored at 1 ½  inches and 3 inches.

Die Cut Your Focal Embellishment of Choice

  • I stamped by image on the back side of the coordinating DSP selection.

  • Then die-cut the image with the coordinating dies.

Add the Patterned Paper

  • With adhesive of your choice, add the patterned paper to the front of your card.

  • This should be between the score lines.

Stamp your Greeting

  • Stamp your greeting with coordinating ink.

Add Embellishment

  • I used dimensionals to add my butterflies.

 

Hint:

Thinking of Springtime | Inspirations Blog Hop March 2021

Welcome to the STAMPING INKspirations BLOG HOP for March 2021.  This month we are focusing on celebrating Easter & Springtime!  

For today’s project, I am featuring an image from the Fine Arts Floral Designer Series Paper.  This is a very simple project idea and one you can certainly recreate with any of your own collection of patterned and print paper.  Here’s a quick video demonstration to take you through the process.

 

YOUTUBE VIDEO LINK

My project could easily be CASED, that means Copy And Selectively Edit, with the same products or other similar ones.  I share the full tutorial with you down below in the post, so if you need the materials & measures they are easily found.  You can make your very own projects following this idea, all you need is:

  • Cardstock

  • Patterned paper

  • Sentiment stamp

  • Embellishments

Now that you have visited with me, and I hope my project may have inspired you, it’s time to send you along to the next blog with Anne Marie Hile.  Please leave me and the other paper crafters comments on our posts.  We just love to know what you think of our ideas.

Instructions:

  1. With the card base open, and the narrowest scored section on the right, slide the 2 ¼" circle punch all the way in from the top of the card, lining up the score line on the right in the center of the circle. Then punch out the circle.
  2. Adhere the 4" x 4" square inside the card – make sure to not place any adhesive on the portion that overlaps the circle opening (or you will have adhesive on the back of your card).
  3. Punch a 2 ¼" circle from Smoky Slate cardstock (same as your card base color).
  4. Close the card and then adhere the 2 ¼" punched circle in the “half” circle that exposes the liner panel. I added my adhesive to the white liner and then placed the circle down. 
  5. Punch a 2" circle from Pool Party cardstock, layer it on the 2 ¼" circle.

  7. Close the card and adhere the Designer Paper to the left panel.
  8. With the label die from the Fluttering Dies, and with a 1 ½” x 3 ¼” piece of Smoky Slate, create the sentiment label.  
  9. Die-cut once lining up the die with the top and side of the cardstock. [It’s okay that the die is larger than the cardstock.]  
  10. Then die-cut again, so that you have all four corners matching.
  11. Stamp the greeting in Black ink.  Add to the card.
  12. Stamp our inside greeting.

Wishing You the Berry Best for 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the 3rd Thursday BLOG HOP for February 2021.  Those of us who love our Stampin’ Up! products are still enjoying the first Sale-a-bration promotion for 2021.  Yes I said first Sale-a-bration for 2021, Stampin’ Up! will be having another one mid-year.

So this month I have a product that features my absolute favorite Sale-a-bration product, the Berry Blessings Bundle.  You can add this item to your order once you have spent $100.  I know that is a big order, but I know we all get there fairly easily!

So the Berry Blessings Bundle included the stamp set Berry Blessings and the patterned paper Berry Delightful DSP.  It also coordinates rather nicely with the Sweet Strawberry bundle found in the Spring Mini Catalog.  Gotta love coordinating products!

Okay, so I do have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video tutorial to share with you today as well.  I will take you through my two-step crafting process.  First I will create the ATC cards, which work well as sentiment tags and embellishments for our projects.  Then I will show you how easy it is to make them into full-sized cards.  Then you can  see the full tutorial with the supply list below in this post.

YOUTUBE VIDEO LINK

Well, that was easy!  First think about crafting some ATC cards.  Whether you want to trade them with your crafting friends or keep them to use on your own projects.  Then use that coordinating color cardstock and scrap patterned paper to make full cards.

Now that you have visited with me, and I hope my project may have inspired you, it’s time to send you along to the next blog with Susan Reitmeyer Legits.  Please leave me and the other paper crafters comments on our posts.  We just love to know what you think of our ideas.
