Baby Wipe Sunrise-Happy Thanksgiving

Sunrise Trees

I wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

This card was created from a scrap piece of baby wipe left over from my tie dye leaf background card found HERE.

I often use baby wipes that I have used to clean my stamp sets in my crafting.

They provide interesting backgrounds. 

The card above was inspired by one of our sunrises!

Marlene's sunrise

The colors were only on a small portion of the baby wipe, so the card itself turned out to be smaller in size.

That's ok though!

I placed a piece of multi-purpose adhesive sheet onto the back of the baby wipe.

The glue left from the adhesive sheet allowed me to place the baby wipe on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock.

The baby wipe was trimmed down, and the edges were folded over and secured onto the back of the card stock. 

I stamped the trees, leaves, and ground from Wonderful Branches using Early Espresso ink.

I used this retired stamp set from my stash because the image was small enough to fit onto the small card front piece.

The greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

The Tie Dye Background Tutorial hit e mail inboxes on November 14.

If you'd like to learn how to create the tie dye background, please sign up for my mailing list by December 1st, 2018 using the signup box in the upper right-hand corner of this site.

I'll e mail the tutorial to you.

Thanks!

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Wonderful Branches, Teeny Tiny Wishes

Ink: Cajun Craze, Old Olive Curry, Early Espresso

Paper: Whisper White, Early Espresso

Accessories: baby wipe, multi-purpose adhesive sheet

Giant Coneflower and Bee-Daisy Punch

   Bee and Daisy Punch Coneflower

As always, I'm able to find inspiration for my card making in my surroundings here in the mountains of southern Colorado.

This time of year, we have Giant Coneflowers growing along the banks of the North Hardscrabble Creek which flows through our property.

The Giant Coneflowers attract all kinds of winged creatures: butterflies, tachinid flies and bees.

Here is the inspiration for my card:

Bee and coneflower

Up close and personal. 

I watched this bee awhile before I snapped the photo. I thought to myself that her expression looks like she's mad at the world.  But after uploading the photo, I think that is just the way she looks.  Concentrating and busy at her work that's all!

Now onto the card.  Here's how:

  1. Emboss Pear Pizzazz card front using the Big Shot and Layered Leaves Embossing Folder.  Sponge the edges using Wild Wasabi ink.
  2. Punch 2 flowers using the Daisy Punch out Crushed Curry card stock.  
  3. Cut the daisies in half and layer 3 halves together, offsetting the petals. Sponge the edges of the petals using Crushed Curry ink.
  4. For the top of the coneflower, punch a piece of Early Espresso card stock using 1" circle punch.  Cut the circle about 3/4.  Attach to the top of the daisies using a Dimensional.
  5. Stamp the 2-step bee from Dragonfly Dreams onto a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock using Crushed Curry and Early Espresso inks.
  6. Cut the bee out using the coordinating die from Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.
  7. The leaves are from the retired Beautiful Branches Thinlits Dies cut out of Early Espresso card stock using the Big Shot.
  8. Attach leaves to card front using Fine Tip Glue Pen.
  9. Attach coneflower over the leaves using a Dimensional.
  10. Attach bee to card front using a Dimensional.
  11. Tear a narrow piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock.  Sponge the edges with Wild Wasabi ink.  Stamp greeting from Dragonfly Dreams using Early Espresso ink.  Attach to the bottom of the card front.
  12. Attach to Early Espresso card base.
  13. Apply clear Wink of Stella to the top and leaves of the coneflower and to the bee for a little sparkle.

Iris Folded Snow Globe

Iris Fold Snow Globe Iris Folded Snow Globe!

It's been awhile since I've done any iris folding. Not sure why since it is one of my all-time paper crafting techniques!

I did a quick search on Pinterest, and found a really fun snow globe pattern from iris-folding.com

The pattern can be found here.

It is basically a circle pattern so it is super simple.

(For more Iris Folding ideas and a video how to tutorial, please visit my Iris Folding Page.)

I first embossed my Mint Macaron card front using my Big Shot and Gently Falling Embossing Folder.  I then punched out the circle using my 2 1/2" circle punch. 

I laid the card front over the pattern I printed out from Iris-Folding.com (remember,  place the front side down-you'll be working from the back), and started laying out my designer paper (Blooms and Bliss cut into 1/2" strips).

The "iris" is Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper with Island Indigo ink sponged on to make a custom color to match the colors in the designer paper and the snow globe. 

(Creating your custom color glimmer paper is easy-see instruction here).

The trees are pieces found in the November Wonderful Winterland Paper Pumpkin Kit.  In the kit, they are white so I simply stamped the coordinating image from the stamp set using Mint Macaron ink.  They are popped up using Dimensionals.

The ring around the snow globe was cut out of Island Indigo card stock using my Big Shot and 2 layers of circle framelits.

I didn't care for the base of the snow globe in the pattern, so I cut a triangle free hand out of Island Indigo card stock.

Since I'm pretty much done with Christmas cards, I wanted this to be a winter wishes, Happy New Year or even a thank you card.

I searched through my stamps and found this small "hello" and scribble that I knew would work with my 7/8" and 1 1/4" scallop circle punches.  Layering the 2 punches would fit perfectly on the front of the snow globe.  

To complete the card, I added a few rhinestones for bling and mounted it to a Whisper White card base.

This Iris Folded Snow Globe was a great way to revisit one of my favorite paper crafting techniques!

 

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Pennant Parade and Kindness Matters (both retired), Wonderful Winterland

Ink: Island Indigo, Mint Macaron

Paper: Whisper White, Mint Macaron, Island Indigo, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer, Blooms and Bliss Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Big Shot, Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Circles Framelits, 2 1/2" circle, 7/8" scallop circle and 1 1/4" scallop circle punches, Wonderful Winterland Paper Pumpkin Kit, sponge, Dimensionals, rhinestones

Sheltering Tree Meets Woodland Embossing Folder-Fall Leaves

Here are a few more cards using the 3D stamping with the Woodland Embossing Folder technique

For instructions on how to do this technique, please visit my tutorial here.

Sheltering Tree 088
The leaves stamp found in Sheltering Tree were stamped on the inside of the embossing folder using Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry ink.

 

Sheltering Tree 089

Colors for this card are Cajun Craze, Hello honey and Rich Razzleberry.

 

Wonderland 034

For this card, spritz the inside of the embossing folder with Stampin' Mist or water as if you were cleaning off the ink from previous stamping.  The ink will run and pool inside the folder.  Insert an piece of watercolor paper or regular card stock and run it through the Big Shot.  You'll have a rich watercolor background behind the trees!

 

Wonderland 030

For this card, I simply stamped the smaller leaves image after running regular Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot using the watercolor method above.

This has become one of my all-time favorite stamping techniques.  The possibilities are endless!

Be sure to check my tutorial here!

Paper Coffee Cup Filled with Flowers and Tutorial

Paper Coffee Cup Tutorial 022

Instructions for Paper Coffee Cup Bouquet of Flowers can be found HERE as a pdf

Enjoy!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Set: Mixed Bunch

Alternative flower stamps: Flower Patch, Flower Shop, Petite Petals or Beautiful Bunch.  Add Papillon  Potpourri butterflies for added interest.

Christmas Giving-Money or Check Holder

This year, my husband and I seem to be mostly giving checks as our Christmas gifts to family members.  I wanted to spruce up the packaging just a little bit so I came up with these quick and easy money or check holders.

Check holders 005

Check holders 009

Here are the instructions:

Start with a piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper measuring 7 1/2" x 7".  On the 7 1/2" side, score at 5 1/8" and 2".  Fold along the scored lines to create the pocket and top flap.  Secure the sides of the pocket using Sticky Strip.   Cut a piece of coordinating card stock or Designer Series paper measuring 6 3/4" x 1 3/4" for the top flap.  Then decorate the front and inside as desired.  You can wrap ribbon around the front to keep the holder closed.  Or add a little bit of Dotto temporary adhesive to the inside of the embellishment like I did.  This is a great way to use up some of those paper and ribbon scraps. 

Change up the paper for any occasion gift giving!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Warmth and Wonder, Christmas Collectibles

Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Baked Brown Sugar, Old Olive

Paper: Crumb Cake, Old Olive, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Whisper White, Season of Style Designer Series Paper

Accessories: Large Oval Decorative Label and Christmas Ornament punches, rhinestone, Dotto temporary adhesive

Chevron Border Punch-Christmas Collectibles

I've been learning how to best use the new Chevron Border punch from Stampin' Up!  There is a bit of learning curve for getting evenly spaced chevrons.  Please be sure to visit the link below for a free tutorial on how to use this punch.

Chevron punch 008

It took me several tries to figure out how to use the punch so I would have evenly spaced chevrons on  pieces of card stock measuring of 5 1/2" x 4 1/4", 5 1/4" x 4", 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and 4" x 5 1/4". 

Here is the pile of punched chevrons to prove it too!

Chevron punch 046

This may come easy to some, but I always struggle with how to get evenly spaced designs when using border punches.  After some trial and error, I created a quick tutorial that will hopefully help someone else along the way.  Be sure to check out the free tutorial HERE.

And don't forget to add a coordinating liner to the envleope using the Big Shot and Envelope Liner Framelit!

  Chevron punch 069

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Christmas Collectibles, Sincere Salutations

Ink: Raspberry Ripple

Paper: Raspberry Ripple, Gumball Green, Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla, Snow Festival Designer Series Paper

Faux Washi Tape Nacho Average Challenge #51

Week 51 and we have a sketch challenge over at the Nacho Average Stampers site.

Washi Tape 088

When I first saw the sketch, I immediately thought "Washi Tape!"

 First of all, what is Washi Tape?

Washi tape has become the popular term for any kind of crafty tape. But traditionally, it is a Japanese masking tape made of washi paper (Think of it like a thin high quality masking tape).

Washi comes in a wide variety of colors, is often very brightly colored or patterned and can have a lovely sheer quality that will allow layers of text, stamping, or the patterns on other tapes to show through it.

Washi Tape is all the rage in the crafting world. Stampin' Up! now sells a small collection of Washi Tape, but it is easy to make your own with scraps of card stock, designer paper, paper napkins, tissue paper, newspaper, old wrapping paper and Scotch Tape®.  This is a great recycle and reuse technique!
