Slimline Card with Celebrate Sunflowers

IMG_4422 2

Today's project is a fall-themed slim line card idea using the beautiful Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle (English) [154065] from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog.

It's paired with the beautiful Gilded Autumn Specialty Designer Series Paper [153520] from the Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog. Don't you just love Cajun Craze for fall projects?  It's such a rich color and one that's used in my fall projects every year!

This slimline card is a bit different than others.  The length is a shorter than others that you may have seen.  You will get all the details after watching the video. And, there will be another video here on the blog this week for a coordinating envelope so be sure to check back.

Let's take a look at the how-to that was originally posted for my Craft and Chat session on Facebook.

Another Fun Fold- Diamond Fold Card with a Toy Story Flair

Mia-toy-story-dressToday's fun fold/diamond fold card was inspired by this Toy Story themed dress that I made for our granddaughter, Mia.  The photo above is from her trip to Disney in March 2020...pre-pandemic.  With wanting to mimic the cow-hide print of the dress, I decided to make my own patterned paper as shown below.

Cow-hide-print-1Basic Black Combo Pack Stampin' Blends [147942]were used to create the abstract pattern for the cow-hide pieces. 

Cow-hide-print-2Three pieces of the Whisper White  Cardstock [100730] were created with this pattern.  Measurements for all cuts and scores are listed below.

Fun-fold-diamond-fold-cardHere's the finished card.  The horse (which I hope somewhat resembles Woody's horse, Bullseye) was stamped and die cut using the Hippo Happiness Bundle (English) [154080].

Here are the details for this card so you can make your own. Any Toy Story fans out there?

You can see a video for another card with this diamond fold HERE.

2020 Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects Week 10

IMG_4234We are already to Week 10 of our 2020 Stampin' Up! Halloween projects and video tutorials.

As we get closer to Halloween, you will see projects that you can easily create for your children, grandchildren, or neighborhood friends!

This treat packaging is what I like to call a tent.  Use your designer paper and have fun making lots of these!

Here is the how-to video tutorial for this week's Halloween project.

Lisa's Inklings:
- Cut one piece of Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper [153517] to 3-1/4 x 6-1/2.  Score at 2" for what will be the bottom front.
- Cut another piece of the same print to 3-1/4 x 8-1/2.  Score at 2" and 6-1/2".
- You will need another small piece of Magic In This Night Designer Series Paper [153517] and Whisper White 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock [100730] for punching.

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

IMG_4110Let your faith be bigger than your fear...a statement so fitting for these times. 

This sentiment is one from the Ridiculously Awesome Cling Stamp Set [152512] from Stampin' Up! and is highlighted by the beautiful Rainbow Glimmer Paper [153056].  And, who remembers this technique?  It's so much fun and super easy!  The scrappy scrip technique is a great way to get a very "stand out" background. See more samples and the video tutorial HERE.

Here are the measurements for this card:

Give this technique a try with this beautiful glimmer paper.  Here are the supplies you will need.

DIY Gift Idea with Warm Hugs Bundle

Stampin-up-gift-idea-warm-hugsToday's project and video tutorial is a DIY gift idea using the Warm Hugs Bundle (English) [155145] from Stampin' Up!  The video is a recording of a recent Facebook Live  and you'll see how my mindset went from shying away from this bundle to "I gotta have it!"

The coffee/latte theme is very popular but try not to box yourself into just that idea.  These cups and sentiments can be used for packaging lots of different mini gifts!

Let's take a look at the video and you'll see!

My Stampin' Up! Halloween Decor Through the Years

2020-Halloween-banner-2

Each year, I enjoy making some fun Halloween decor for my crafting studio and home. 

For 2020, the banner above was made with the Have A Hoot Bundle (English) [155208].

Stampin-up-decor-witch-hatThe Halloween decor hat above was a fun kit!  This one sits on a little table to greet visitors to my studio.

Stampin-up-spooky-bingo-bits-vertical-bannerThe vertical banner above was made with the Spooky Bingo Bits set from years ago.  Do you remember that Stampin' Up! set from 2012?

Stampin-up-halloween-spider-wreathThis fun wreath made from a kit is missing a few elements but I still enjoy displaying it with the sparkly web and beaded spider.

Framed-kit-stampin-up-halloween-decorHere's a another completed kit that was a favorite.  The sectioned frame is awesome and it sits on a vintage sewing machine along with other fun, spooky elements just inside the front door of the cabin.

IMG_4272 Stampin-up-halloween-decor-framed-kit-1

The black covering is just a piece of fabric that's folded and draped over top of the sewing machine to add to the Halloween ambiance.

Stampin-up-halloween-decor-digital-printThe framed piece above was created in our former digital program, My Digital Studio, circa 2013. I still love it and that frame is just perfect.

Stampin-up-halloween-decor-panel-frame

Here's another framed piece that was a panel in some Halloween themed designer paper one year in the past. A black frame from Wal-Mart was just the right fit.  The designer paper medallion was strategically hot glued to cover a phrase that was too ghoulish for my taste!

Stampin-up-halloween-decor-circle-bannerHere's another circle banner made with some stamped images, medallions, and fussy cut images from designer series paper.

Stampin-up-halloween-decor-spooky-bannerThe SPOOKY banner above is one of my favorites!  Love the color combo and those big die cut letters!

Do you create any home decor pieces with your paper crafting supplies?  I hope you enjoyed this look at some of my creations of Stampin' Up! Halloween Decor through the years!
