Masking Paper Techniques with Forever Fern

Before jumping into today's project, I want to share what took place one afternoon this week in my Stampin' Peace Studio. I had some young crafters visit. My niece Avery has been watching Jameson, Addison, and Beau this summer, and asked if she could bring them over for a "crafternoon". Of course, I said yes. (FYI...these same kids were here 2 years ago when my other niece Alison watched them, so it was fun to have them back. And they were excited to be back.)

Left to right in photo above, 2nd graders Beau and Addison, my niece Avery who is starting her sophomore year at The Ohio State University, and 4th grader Jameson.

We first made cards from the April 2021 So Cool Paper Pumpkin Kit. Do you remember it? Each child made 2 popsicle cards, 1 watermelon card, and 1 rainbow card. They each talked about giving one to their new teacher as "Meet the Teacher" was the next day. They decorated blank art journals with stickers and then ecorated gift bags to put their cards and other goodies in using Stampin' Write markers. Then we had an ice cream treat. Afterwards, the kids could create on their own using card stock and retired Designer Series Paper. They made signs for their rooms and cards for their mom and dad. All in all, it was a fun "crafternoon" for all of us.

My sister Joan (Avery's mom) stopped over. The kids had fun sharing what they made with her.

The kids are ready to head home with all their paper crafts and big smiles. And I got big hugs!

This Birthday Piggy

It's quite gloomy and rainy in central Ohio today, but sharing stamping and paper crafting is always good for brightening my day. In addition to sharing here on www.stampinpeace.com, I'll be sharing some stamping and paper crafting this kids this afternoon. My niece Avery is bringing over the 3 kids she's been watching this summer. The plan is to provide them with a couple of kits and some stamps, ink, and paper; give them a few ideas, and see what direction they head in. They were here 2 years ago and wanted to make matching games. So that's what we did. They each left here with their own matching game to play at home and share with family and friends. I'm excited to see what is created today.

You may or  may not heard of CASEing. In the Stampin' Up! Community, CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything meaning if someone shared a creative project on social media, you should feel free to copy it or draw inspiration from it and make something similar. So, no, you are not steeling someone's idea. (Of course, if you copy something exactly, it's common courtesy to give credit to the person who made it.)

In today's video, I show you an example of CASEing. I began with a card I received in a Merry Stampers Team Swap, copied the overall layout and changed a few elements to create a card of my own. I think you'll like both the card I CASEd and my own versions as well. S

The Hippest Hippo card above was a swap card made by my Merry Stampers Team Member Pat Drybala. It's so cute I couldn't wait to CASE it for. CASE = Copy And Share Everything.

 

The card below is my CASEd card with slightly different dimensions and a different stamp - This Birthday Piggy.

Thanks for viewing this post.

I'm enjoying a little downtime and fun with family at the beach this week, so you won't see me online as much. I look forward to sharing with you again soon.

Have a good week and happy stamping!


Heat Embossing with Amazing Phrasing

What a fun and versatile stamp set Amazing Phrasing Stamp Set is, and best of all, I got it FREE with a $100 order. You can too when you place a Stampin' Up! order during one of our biggest annual promotions - Sale-A-Bration happening now through August 31st. You'll love mixing and matching all the words and phrases. In the following video replay of my July 18th Facebook Live, I feature this Amazing Phrasing Stamp Set to create some fun cards with Heat Embossing and the Emboss Resist Technique. So get ready, get set, watch, then start creating some cards of your own.

Be sure to take note of one of our newest tools, the Embossing Additions Tool Kit, as well as the Stamparatus, one of my all time favorite stamping tools.

***** This video lacks audio, but am keeping it in the post so that you can at least follow my steps visually. I am working with Apple Mac and iMovie to fix it. I will reload corrected video as soon as it is available. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Easy-to-make Envelopes for Slimline Cards

I've demonstrated making Slimline Cards many times in the past. My most recent Slimline Cards feature the Hippest Hippos Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and coordinating Hippest Hippos as shown in the photo below. (If you missed this, you can see the video demonstration and blog post with this link: https://bit.ly/3aNWpn0.

I'm often asked what kind of envelopes do I mail my Slimline Cards in. These cards fit in a standard business or letter size envelope or in a Slimline Envelope from Stampin' Up! or you can make your own with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper that coordinates with your Slimline Card. Below is a video demonstration followed by a template and cutting and scoring dimensions.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Start with 8 1/2" x 11" card stock or DSP.
  • With card stock in horizontal position, score at 2 1/2" on one side and 2" on the opposite side.
  • Turn card stock to vertical position, score at 3/4" on one end and 1 1/4" on opposite end.
  • Cut away corners as shown. (TIP:  Cut corners at angles so envelope folds more easily.)
  • Fold on score lines.
  • Adhere long sides.
  • Adhere small end flap.
