Stamping Techniques Feed

Another Free Friday Download!

FRI - YAY!!! Yay, it's here. Friday. Are you ready for the weekend? I sure am. It's been quite a busy week so I'm looking forward to a little rest & relaxation and time with friends and family this weekend.

I have a wonderful Free Friday Download for you today. This one features a fun twist on using the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. I actually used the de-bossed side of the card stock after running it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the Bloom Hybrid Die. Who would have thought that simply turning over embossed card stock would give us a whole new look for a card. I love it. I love the simple elegance of this card. The layers of Just Jade with Basic White and the Just Jade gingham ribbon are just the right amount of color without taking away from the simplicity or elegance of this card. Add a sentiment for just about any occasion you can think of or use it as is for a note card. Enjoy the photos but don't forget to click on the link to download your free PDF to make this card.

Take An Adventure In The Wild

Let's take an adventure into the wild as I show and tell you what CASEing is. CASE is a term you may have heard me say often. CASE stands for Create And Share Everything. So as we all create and share our projects on social media, we are inviting others in the stamping and paper crafting community to draw inspiration from our projects. We can CASE card layouts, scrapbook layouts, color combinations, stamping techniques, and more. I would encourage all of you then to share what you make. For it is in sharing that we all grow and learn. That is what I love most about being a part of Stampin' Up! and the paper crafting community. We all have something to share, and we all have jf to learn, and together we can enjoy stamping and paper crafting for years to come. 

The Christmas card in the photo below is the one I CASEd to make my two In The Wild birthday cards pictured.Tidings of Christmas Suite & In The Wild Suite by Stampin' Up!

Click here for supply list and cutting dimensions to make the Tidings of Christmas card below.
Tidings of Christmas Suite by Stampin' Up!

As you can see in the photos below, I kept the same basic layout for each of the two birthday cards but changed up the Designer Series Paper, color combination, die cut label for the sentiments, and added embellishments.

Hybrid Embossing Folder? What's That?

Have you heard about a new category of Embossing Folder? Let me introduce you to Stampin' Up!'s Hybrid Embossing Folder. A hybrid embossing folder gives you the luxury of die cutting and embossing in one easy step. In the following Facebook Live Video Replay, I demonstrate the Art in Bloom Bundle which consists of the Art in Bloom Stamp Set and the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder. Note that the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder comes with a set of 9 dies that coordinates with both Hybrid Embossing Folder and the Stamp Set. You can use the dies separately, the embossing folder separately, or use them both together to cut and emboss flowers in just one easy step! Take a look at my demonstration to see just how amazing and versatile this new product is. While the Bloom Hybrid Embossing Folder is the only one of its kind in the annual, you can look forward to another Hybrid Embossing Folder in the Holiday Mini Catalog which launches August 3rd.

Celebrate Independence Day with a Free Friday Download

The 4th of July, also known as Independence Day in the USA , is a day spent celebrating our nation and the many freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Picnics, parties, BBQ's, parades, and fireworks displays are some of the ways we celebrate. My card below is fitting for our celebrating the 4th of July. Fireworks displays are always my first thought when I think about celebrating the 4th. What great memories I have of our family piling into the station wagon and Dad driving us to watch the fireworks at Great Northern Mall and the many times Peter and I took our own children to watch fireworks in the different communities we lived. I still love to go watch fireworks light up the night sky in celebration of our country's freedom.

While I made this card to celebrate America's Independence day, I think it would do well as a graduation card in one's school colors. It could also serve as a birthday or retirement card or any other cause for celebration. Just use colors to fit your occasion or recipient. Or consider sending your favorite college students a card in their collegiate colors celebrating their achievements.

This card also shows the versatility of our Stampin' Up! products as the fireworks were made with 2 stamps from the Garden Wishes Stamp Set. It's so fun to see the creativity that comes as a result of stampers "thinking outside the box". Who would have thought a dandelion could be used to stamp a fireworks display? I love it! Every time I discover that a stamp set or punch or die can be used in a way different than its intended purpose, I'm happy that I use Stampin' Up! products and belong to such clever group of crafters willing to share their creativity with others. Plus, it makes me feel that I am getting even more for my money, and that's always a good thing!

Garden Wishes Stamp Set & Create with Friends Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

 

The following photos show you the steps I used the dandelion bloom only without stem for it to stamp fireworks.

Step 1: Adhere top of stamp to clear block. Use Washi Tape to cover the stem.

(Sticky note may also work, but I find Washi Tape easier to work with for this technique.)
Garden Wishes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Step 2: Ink up the dandelion bloom in a corner of the Real Red ink pad. (Use corner of ink pad only to avoid getting ink on other parts of red rubber below the Washi Tape.)
Garden Wishes Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!

Step 3:  Remove Washi Tape and stamp on Basic White card stock. Repeat steps 1-3 several times to stamp red fireworks.

Fresh Fruit For All

I have loved creating with the amazing You're A Peach Suite. It is so fresh and fun. BUT, there is so much more to the Sweet As A Peach Bundle if you allow yourself to see it a new light. Think outside the box. Let your imagination take shape Can you envision creating other fruits with this bundle? Well, in my video below, I demonstrate how I used the Sweet As A Peach Bundle to make blueberries, cherries, plum, and apples. I bet you, like the viewers of this Facebook Live, can think of many more fruits you can make with this stamp set and dies bundle. The versatility of the Sweet As A Peach Bundle has opened me up to so many more ways to use it. 

Take a look at my video demonstration, then make a "fruit salad" of cards give or send. You'll be spreading love and summer fun!

Custom Made Designer Series Paper Envelopes

If you've been following my work for a while, or if you're new to Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, it doesn't take long for you to learn that I love Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. It is often time the first product I reach for when I sit down to design and create. I love that each piece of paper has a different print on each side. I love that the colors in the Designer Series Paper are true Stampin' Up! colors coordinating with all our other color products - ink pads, markers, ribbon, embellishments. AND so many of our Designer Series Papers also coordinate with other products such as stamp sets, dies, and punches. Stampin' Up! is known for its color coordination and product coordination. That's what I love most about using Stampin' Up! products, Designer Series Papers being one of my favorite products categories. I love them for cards, scrapbook pages, little favors, and so much more.

In the following video, I demonstrate quick and easy cards in 3 sizes each with coordinating envelopes made from Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper. You can whip up these cards and envelopes in record time. The custom made DSP envelopes are so easy, especially after watching my video demonstration and using the templates pictured. Feel free to print the picture of the envelope templates for your future use.

A Fun Twist on my Pocket Card

I love making pocket cards. The one featured in my last post is really fun and easy to make. It starts with a 5 1/4" x 12" piece of Designer Series Paper. (If you missed it, click here to view it now.) In today's Facebook Live video replay, I demonstrate how to make a Fun Fold Card using the same elements used in my Pocket Card. So take a look at this video. Learn how you can add a couple more scores lines and cuts to that 5 1/4" x 12" piece of DSP to make this new Fun Fold Card. Of course, using the Beauty of the Earth Suite makes creating beautiful cards pretty darn easy too.


Cutting & Scoring Directions:

  • Card Base = 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
  • DSP = 5 1/4" x 12", score at 4" & 8", flip over and score at 2" & 10"
  • Basic White inside = 5" x 3 3/4"

 

I made this Fun Fold Card using the same Designer Series Paper, sentiment, punch, ribbon, and embellishments as on one of the Pocket Cards from the previous post. A few extra score lines on the DSP can change this combination of supplies from a Pocket Card to a Fun Fold Card.

By changing out the paper from the Beauty of the Earth DSP pack and sentiment from Inspired Thoughts Stamp Set, it was easy to recreate this Fun Fold Card as a Christmas or Winter Time card. I simply love it. The ribbons and embellishments I chose fit perfectly with the other elements making this card oh so pretty.

Pretty Paper Piecing Cards

I'm so excited to show off one of my favorite stamp sets, Beautiful Moments, AND to show you a favorite technique too, Paper Piecing. Paper Piecing is so fun and can be used as an alternate method of coloring your stamped images. Enjoy my video demonstration. I hope you will be inspired to use the Beautiful Moments Stamp Set and to do some Paper Piecing on your own hand stamped cards.

FYI...My Paper Piecing Demonstratrion includes making 2 cards. If you joined my Facebook Live on the evening of 6/16, you will recall that just as I started making the 2nd card (the fun fold card) all the smoke alarms in my house started going off. Fortunately, I am fine and so is my house. Turned out to be 1 faulty smoke detector that tripped all the others too. Therefore, I demonstrated my 2nd card the next morning so be sure to check out BOTH videos below.
