Card Making Video - Make A Fun Fold Card with Dragonfly Garden

Stampin-up-fun-fold-dragonfly-garden-bundleToday's project and video tutorial is the how-to for making a fun fold card using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle (English) [156224] from Stampin' Up!

This has been a very popular stamp set and the coordinating paper is wonderful but at the time of this writing, is in very low inventory status.  So, if you love it, check now (Dandy Garden 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper [154297]) to see if it's still available!

This particular card design was my "mystery stamping event" for our April Stars Team virtual gathering.  Since our team is scattered across the country, we love gathering virtually on Zoom to stamp together.  You are getting to see the finished project first but the Stars had no idea what the finished card would look like.  All that was presented to them prior to the "gathering" was the recipe with cutting and scoring directions. Everyone used their own supplies. Two shared photos of their projects. Take a look at Kristen's and Carol's cards!

Now that you've seen these samples, you must be anxious to make your own!  Here is the video!

2.Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Cardstock [159276]: 4 x 5-1/4 , scrap for die cut
3.Dandy Garden 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper [154297]: 2-1/2 x 6 (scored at 5-1/4) and punched dragonfly.

Here's the inside of the card.  The message can be written behind the card front strip so as not to be visible when the card is opened.

Fun-fold-card-dragonfly-gardenWhat most of us like about fun fold cards like this one with Dragonfly Garden is the added interest and uniqueness.  It's a great alternative to a regular book-fold or tent-fold card.

Here are all of the supplies used on today's project.

Easy Gilded Leafing Technique Video for Handmade Cards

Easy-gilded-leafing-techniqueLet's kick off Tuesday with an easy technique video for handmade cards using Gilded Leafing from Stampin' Up!

The Gilded Leafing is a jar of beautiful golden flakes, lighter than a feather, that works magic on your paper crafting creations.  You've seen a demonstration and sample of this gilded leafing on another project but I have to admit that I LOVE this method and the secret to the "easy" is using our Adhesive Sheets.

Here's the video so you can see how the easy gilded leafing technique is done!

Lisa's Inklings:

Easy DIY Gift Idea with Stampin' Up! Flowering Cactus

Diy-gift-idea-stampin-up-flowering-cactus

It's Tuesday and today we have an easy DIY project with the Stampin' Up! Flowering Cactus Product Medley.  

I am always on the lookout for tea towels or dish towels that coordinate well with our stamp sets and designer papers.  The cactus-themed towel used in today's project is from Dollar Tree!  Here's one from last year with an Easter theme.

The color scheme in the Flowering Cactus Product Medley is different from the bright colors on this towel.  As you'll see in the video, it was easy to coordinate other Stampin' Up! Colors to match the towel.  Watch the video to see the process of this easy DIY gift with Stampin' Up! Flowering Cactus!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cut coordinating cardstock layer to 2" x 5".
  • Cut designer paper to match at 1-3/4 x 4-3/4.
  • You will need a piece of Basic White approximately 4" x 5" to stamp and cut your image.
  • For the sentiment, a 3/4" strip of Basic White was used and cut to fit.

Diy-gift-idea-stampin-up-flowering-cactus-2Here are the supplies used for this project.

Product List

You can easily create these DIY gift towels for any occasion.  Here are a few ideas:

  • Teacher gifts
  • New neighbor welcome
  • Church or local craft fairs
  • Stocking stuffers
  • Or, just a "thinking of you" gift to brighten anyone's day!

Now that you've seen this video, you can be on the lookout for cute tea or kitchen towels to have on hand to make these easy DIY gift ideas that you can create with Stampin' Up! coordinating products! 

 


Make An Easter Card and Basket for the Little Ones {Video}

Easter-card

Today's feature is an Easter card and Easter basket video so you can make these for the little ones in your life.

These Easter projects were first shown on my Facebook LIVE this past Wednesday.  I am planning to give these to our granddaughters for Easter.  The card has an easy fun fold element when you open the inside of the card. Let's take a look at the video to see the process.

Make A St. Patrick's Day Treat Box

St-patricks-day-treat-1With St. Patrick's Day coming up, it's a good time for an idea for this fun little treat box.

This is a simple one and a good size for some fun candy treats or even a gift card!  Going through my supplies, I found some stamp sets and dies that would be just right to wish someone "top of the day" on the 17th.

There are many shades of green in this Stampin' Up! color realm but this spruce matched my treats, Andes Mints, so that was the deciding factor. 

Here's the how-to video so that you can put one of these together quickly.

Lisa's Inklings:

St-patricks-day-treat-3I think this version with the sentiment from the game on stamp set is just right for my better-half! Those hearts from the kanga dies make a cute shamrock, don't you think?

St. Patrick's Day was always a fun day for me growing up.  I was eager to attend my school that day to see all the wearing of the green.  Making these little treat boxes and decorations each year brings some of those fun memories to mind.

Here's a look back at some of the fun projects for St. Patrick's Day... a Leprechaun Hat Treat Holder and a St. Patrick's Day Banner.

Below are the supplies used for the two St. Patrick's Day treat boxes seen in today's video.  If you are needing any card-making or paper crafting supplies, I would be honored to serve you!

Hope you have been inspired to try this paper crafting project so now that you've seen the video, give it a try! Have some fun on St. Patrick's Day with these treat boxes that you can create yourself and until next time, let your light shine!


Two Handmade Cards with Stampin' Up! Circle -Facebook Live Recording

Handmade-cards-circle-celebration.youtube-thumbnail

Today's projects are two handmade cards with Stampin' Up! Circle Celebration.  We made these cards on Craft & Chat Live on Facebook yesterday afternoon.

The circle elements on these stamp sets have a wide variety of patterns but for some reason, I was obsessed with this vine image that you will see on these two cards!  (Be sure that you are on my mailing list so you can see another card made with more of these circle patterns...it's my favorite that I've made so far with this set!)

And, now...on with the show!

 

Lisa's Inklings for these two handmade cards with Stampin' Up! Circle Celebration-

Easy-handmade-card-with-circle-celebration

Card 1:

Paper-quilt-on-a-handmade-card-with-circle-celebrationCard 2:

I like to call this the "quilt" card.

The faux stitching created by the dies on both of these really adds a special touch, don't you think?

Easy-handmade-card-circle-celebrationTip: To prevent the classic ink from bleeding on the elements seen in the photo above, clear emboss the image and sentiment immediately after stamping in the classic ink. 

Product List

The Forever Greenery DSP is so very pretty.  It will probably be "retiring" soon.  Here's another favorite project of mine featuring this paper.

Two Card Ideas with the Stampin' Up! Butterfly Brilliance Bundle

Butterfly-brilliance-live.youtube-thumbnail

On Wednesday's Facebook Live, the beautiful new Butterfly Brilliance Bundle was the star of the show! This stamp and die collection combo is an early release from the new Stampin' Up! catalog that will go LIVE in May.  Some of us like to call that catalog the "big" catalog!

I am really enjoying creating with these butterflies.  When you watch the recording of the video below, you will hear that when I see a butterfly cross my path, I feel it's my mom telling me "hello".  And, don't you think that sending cards with butterflies is a lovely gesture of hope?   There are quite a few on my list that could use such a card, how about you?

stampin up butterfly brilliance card ideaWe will call this card, the "Calypso Coral" card.  The Love You Always Foil Sheets [154286] butterflies are such a pretty touch!

stampin up butterfly brilliance card ideaHere is our "Magenta Madness" card!  It's bright and beautiful but quite a bit different than my usual color choices.  This just proves that I should step out of my "color-comfort" box more. :)

Ready to take a look at the video?  Grab a drink (and, maybe even some popcorn!). Hope you enjoy!
