Dashing Deer Easel Card & the Holiday Catalog Kick Off

Today’s card is the final project  we made during my Holiday Catalog Kick Off and it is a fancy fold. I love the fact that we can create 3d cards using just ink and card stock! For me it’s one of the things that make paper crafting so much fun!

The Dashing Deer Bundle of products coordinates with this month’s Host Special – the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper which is perfect for projects like this since it contains multiple sheets of the same patterns. The images in this set are lovely, but when teamed up with the coordinating Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies your options are endless.

This card uses a fancy fold called the Easel Fold and I’ve whipped up a quick tutorial show how this quick and easy fold is created for you along with a printable PDF.

After watching the video do you want to make one too?

Well you’re in luck since I’ve created a PDF for you with step by step instructions to create this card along with a complete supply list too.

August Thank You’s & Tutorials

This month’s Thank You’s use a fun new technique using the Stampartaus called Circular Stamping. It’s a lot of fun to do and you can create this fun technique with just a few steps. Check out this card that I created for my stamping friends.

I love the bright and cheerful Mango Medley teamed up here with Berry Burst – how can it not make you smile?

Good news I’ve created a quick tutorial for you so you can make some too.

So much fun, right? Loving it and can’t wait to try it with some other sets too!

Got Ink?

Why not refresh your pallet of colors with a new ink pad? We’ve got some great new colors such as the Mango Melody used for today’s project.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some more cards with you along with an organizational item too.

On a personal note I know that my posts have been more inconsistent than normal – we’ve had some family emergencies this summer, the latest being a major car accident that my husband was in. It was quite a scare, but thankfully he is ok and on the mend. I’m hoping things will be back to normal by the end of this week. Thanks for understanding.

Feather Together & the Stamparatus

Today’s project is one that I did with my team and I thought you may enjoy it too. With the Stamparatus coming soon – I know you will want one too, if you didn’t take advantage of the pre-order periods last fall.

I’m loving the ease in which this tool makes stamping multiple projects along with the fun options it has. I find it especially helpful for 2 step stamping since I only have to do the lining up one time.

I’ve made a video for the hinge step technique used for this card

Season Like Christmas

This tree was calling me when I saw it – after all there is nothing like a evergreen this time of year. And I have some wonderful memories of planting hundreds of blue spruce saplings with my father as a small child on our piece of property in Wisconsin. I was a very proud 3 year old helping him!  He’d drop the tree in the hold, pour the water and put the dirt back and it was my job to stomp that dirt down tightly. He was putting them in so we could have a tree farm, unfortunately that never came to pass. The last time I saw my childhood home there is a woods where that once empty field  – and seemed the trees touched the sky!

So this card was inspired by that time with my father and I really like the way it turned out.

What do you think? Want to know how I created the soft forest of trees for the front of this card?

I took a couple of pictures for you to show you how I did it. I used a simple masking technique for this project.

  1. Take some large post it notes and create a frame on the card front. I used my grid paper to make sure the lines were straight. I simply laid my card stock down on the grid paper, used a ruler at the measurement  I wanted and then stuck the sticky note down. The grid lines make lining things up easy and keeps everything straight for you – LOVE my grid paper!

2. I used my Stampin’ Sponge and Soft Sky Classic Ink to lightly sponged the area inside the sticky notes on the card front.

3. Next I stamped the tree image using the Soft Sky Classic Ink. To create the softer trees in the background I didn’t reink in between, but instead stamped multiple times before reinking.

4. I then removed my sticky notes and stamped the tree in Wild Wasabi and Garden Green Classic Ink.

5. Added the trunk and the sentiment and then put it onto the card front.

Voila! A wintry woods.

Here is a printable tutorial for you!

Hello Life Mini File Folder Treat Holder

This past weekend was my second Annual Blue Mountain Stampers’ Winter Weekend and I’ve got to say it was a blast and the creative energy was flowing shortly after we unpacked! I’ll try to share more about this fun team event with you later when I’ve caught back up on my sleep! LOL

Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you this quick and easy Valentine themed treat that I made first.

Hello Life File Folder Gum Holder (1)

So quick and easy and it holds a pack of gum –

Hello Life File Folder Gum Holder (3)

I used the Hello Life stamp set (137136) that you can find on page 6 of the Occasions Catalog and the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (137779) from page 5.

While the Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper has a Valentine feel to it on one side, the great part is the other side is neutral enough for any occasion! This pattern that I’ve used for this project is a perfect example.

I love the little sentiments found in this set and since it is Photopolymer it is sooo easy to line up and layer the images.

Hello Life File Folder Gum Holder (2)

Can you see the cute little heart on the top of my file folder flap? It’s stamped in Crisp Cantaloupe and adds a little interest to the flap (since it is tone on tone.)

With the rain today my camera is just not real happy. And of course photos just don’t do projects the justice they deserve – great news projects are always on display in my classroom during events so you can see just how great they are for  yourself!

If you’d like to learn how to make these cute little treats click HERE for my video tutorial to show you how.

Supplies: 

Stamp Set: Hello Life (137136)

Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black (132708), and Crisp Cantaloupe (131176), Calypso Coral Classic Ink (126983)

Paper: Stacked with Love Designer Series Paper Stack (137779), Crisp Cantaloupe (131298), Calypso Coral (122925), Basic Black (121045), and Whisper White card stock (100730)

Accessories: Crisp Cantaloupe Thick Baker’s Twine (135636), Envelope Punch Board (133774), 1 3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch (119854), 1 1/4″ Circle Punch (119861), and 1 3/8″ Circle Punch (119860)

Marvelous Metallic Pumpkins

I love to learn new techniques. Do you? Today’s project combines two things I love techniques and the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers. Whoo hoo! I find myself using my Blendabilities all the time – they are just so much fun to color with and I’m not really a coloring type of person normally. But I’m finding coloring with my Blendabilities is very relaxing and  I always feel so accomplished when I’m finish coloring an image LOL.

I’ve used the Fall Fest stamp set and coordinating Fun Fall Framelits that are available in a money saving Bundle (137628) for this project. This is such a great set for the fall, it’s not such for Halloween as you can see.

marvelous metallic pumpkins

So wondering what and how I did this? It is sooooo easy and it really gives your project a WOW effect. I’m hoping you can see the wonderful look that this little pumpkin has in my photo.

Want to learn this really quick and easy technique? I’ve made a quick video for you. So without delay – Here is my Marvelous Metallic Pumpkins Video Tutorial.

Love it? All you need is a sold image for this project and you’re set to go – the ideas are endless. I haven’t noticed there is any problem so far with my Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers – The only tip is lighter hand when coloring is better since the StazOn Ink is also alcohol based too much pressure picks up the StazOn. That is why for your regular projects you’ll want to use our Memento Tuxedo Black Pad.

Want to learn more about Stampin’ Blendabilities? I’ve got a Blend with Friends Class coming up in October. Not only will you get to practice with the Blendabilities Markers, but the class includes a bundle of products that will get you started. Sound interesting?

Why not contact me today (706 754-7124 or stampwithjini@gmail.com) to learn more about the Blend with Friends Class or you can click HERE to see my full calendar of events. I think you’ll really love using our Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers once you try them and they are such a great deal too!

Supplies:

Stamp Set: Fall Fest (135194), For All Things (135152/135155), and Gorgeous Grunge (130514/130517)

Ink: White Cotton StazOn Pad (106960), Tangerine Tango (1269416), Sahara Sand (126976), Bermuda Bay (131171), and Crushed Curry Classic Ink Pads (131173)

Cardstock: Gold Foil (132622), Bermuda Bay (131197), and Whisper White card stock (100730)
