Garden In Bloom – Catalog CASE

 

My mission is to always try and make simple cards!  I found this card on page 139 of the Annual Catalog and set about to recreate it!  In case you missed it, (CASE, Copy And Share Everything) 

Of course, I don’t have the Blooms and Wishes stamp set, yet!  But I wanted to challenge myself to use something in my collection that would be similar.  I had to make a baby card and don’t have any of the baby stamps!

139The flower from Blooms and Wishes was similar to the flower from Garden in Bloom.  Don’t be afraid to check out your collection of stamps to see if you have something that would work.

I also grabbed my Banners For You stamp set as that had some leaves and dots that were perfect for the look I was trying to achieve.  The Congratulations On Your New Arrival came from the Better Together stamp set.  Check that one out because there are sentiments for many special occasions.

Make Your Own Paper!

Make Your Own Paper!

Have you ever wanted to make your own Designer Series Paper, but you weren’t sure where to start? This simple and easy technique has been around for a long time.

blue-cChristine’s Tips:

  • You could start with a piece of neutral cardstock, 3.5″ x 4.5″, to make one card.
  • If you wanted to stamp a larger piece, just use an 8.5″ x 11″ and stamp away.
  • Stamp off of the edges to achieve the texture that you want.  Here I used Penned and Painted for a watercolor look.
  • You can use just about any stamp set.  Mixed it up a bit and use solid images along with line images.
  • Keep your colors to a maximum of three.
  • Use darker ink for smaller images and lighter ink for larger images.

Stampin’ Up! Butterflies Thinlit Dies

 Butterflies Thinlits and Fluttering Embossing Folder

The Butterfly Thinlits makes for a quick and easy elegant embellishment on any card.

Butterfly CongratsOne of my favorite NEW products in the Occasions Catalog is this nifty tool called the Big Shot Die Brush!  Let me tell you, this tool is a genius!  While I love intricate designs, I do not like poking all the little pieces out of the die.  This tool makes it easy!  Do you remember the video that I shared a little while ago?  Details here, just in case!

For a little stability on the backside of the butterfly, I added a solid butterfly cut out from another framelit in the collection.

Using the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Trio, I punched two flowers, adhered them together and added a rhinestone.

Adding a little Wink Of Stella to the butterfly really adds a nice shimmer without the mess.  The brush tip is perfect for writing or adding a subtle controlled glitter to your projects.

That “Congratulations” is from the Balloon Celebrations stamp set.  I love it and it fits nicely in the banner framelits from the Number of Years Bundle.

What To Do With Those Scraps!

What To Do With Those Scraps!

We all have them!  Yes, we do!  LOTS of scrap pieces of papers that we just can’t seem to part with.  We end up throwing them into the pile, some big, some small!

In case you didn’t know…?  Stampin’ Up! includes a list of all the colors from that Designer Series Paper pack.  It is easy to find what you need on a moment’s notice.

 

ButterflysAre you looking for some creative ways to use your scrap pieces of paper?

Here are 10 ideas to help you get started!

  1. Punch some paper using your small punches.  Make confetti!
  2. If you are a scrapbooker, punch small pieces and use them as embellishments and accents for your pages.  Remember your cards as well.
  3. If you have pieces that you can cut into 3 x 6, use them to make gift tags and/or cards.
  4. Line your envelopes using Stampin’ Up’s! Envelope Framelit.
  5. Shred some of it and use it to add to your super cute little boxes made with the Stampin’ Up! Gift Box Punch Board!
  6. Do you have the Big Shot?  Die cut letters using any die for your cards or scrapbook pages.  Make a alphabet garland using a large alphabet and coordinating printed paper.
  7. Are you into Mixed Media?  I am!  I love to create using leftover Designer Series Paper.  Check this out!
  8. Easter is coming!  If you set a table, make some napkin rings with your Spring paper.  Use it to add a seating tag!
  9. You can make small bows using Stampin’ Up’s! Bow Builder Punch.  Small patterns lend themselves to this idea! This one is pure genius!  Check out this video!
  10. Get creative for your kitchen.  Make some labels to organize your pantry items.

What other ideas do you have to use your paper scraps?!
