STAMPIN' UP!® BACK ON YOUR FEET

Hello, Fellow Stampers!
     Today we have a totally original idea by Sue!  LOL  Sadly, they are few and far between.  I was motivated to create this card by the fact a neighbor recently underwent back surgery and I doubted he would appreciate something flowery.  ;-)  So, let's get started.


Happy Stampin’!

Details
  • Whisper White Thick vertical card base with a mat of So Saffron or Daffodil Delight - I actually made two of these - and 5 x 3-3/4 Whisper White for the top layer.
  • I colored a dab of Embossing Paste (you don't need much) with a couple of drops of Cajun Craze Refill and added it using our brick-look mask.  I did not want it to be solid.
  • I hand-cut a 4" piece of Granny Apple Green CS to make it a little uneven and then used our retired Fringe Scissors to make the grass. You can just use Paper Snips.  I added the piece I had trimmed off at the bottom and sponged some color on it, added it with Liquid Glue to the WW and trimmed off the excess.
  • I stamped the turtle and butterfly in Memento onto Shimmery White CS, colored them with Blends and hand cut the turtle.  He is popped up with a couple of Dimensionals and a glue dot at the bottom, just below the top of the grass.  The small butterfly is from Butterfly Gala, colored with Light Daffodil and Light Cajun Craze Blends, punched out with the Butterfly Duet Punch, and added with a glue dot.
  • The sentiment is cut with a Gina K wonky rectangle die and adhered with glue dots. Any of the SU! dies would work just as well: Stitched Rectangles, Stitched Shapes, or plenty of our punches.
  • I stamped "Sigh ..". and "Sometimes that's all there is to say" on the inside of the card.  I covered up the bottom half of that sentiment with old Washi tape before inking, removed it and stamped and also added a little butterfly.

ROOTED IN NATURE "FLORAL" - June 2019 Stamp Camp

Hi, Stampers!
     I cannot claim the clever use of these images as my own.  I've made only a couple of changes to the original I saw, I think, on Pinterest some time ago. If you follow me on Pinterest - Stamp with Sue - you'll see I posted several new cards on my SU! Rooted in Nature board while I was looking for the original of this "floral," because I do like to give credit.  Unfortunately, no luck - maybe you'll do better.  Anyway, let's get started!


Happy Stampin’!

STAMPIN' UP! VARIATION ON CATALOG SAMPLE - SAILING HOME BUNDLE - June Stamp Camp


Hi, Stampers!
     We made this version of a Sailing Home SU! Annual Catalog sample (p.144).  The sample background was made with the Come Sail Away Memories & More Card Pack (p.145), but I don't have that, so we improvised using the retired TIEF, Seaside, because I don't have the new High Seas 3D Embossing Folder, either! (p.198).  So, you may ask, is this really a CAS of the Sample?  About as close as I could get with what I had.  ;-)  See?  You don't have to have every single product in order to create.  Please comment or email for a FREE Project Sheet!   Let's get started.  


Happy Stampin’!

PAPER COASTER STICKY NOTES HOLDER* TUTORIAL - June 2019 STAMP CAMP


 Image © Stampin' Up!®
Hi, Stampers!
     *With slight changes in the measurements and decoration, this old standby
Sticky Note Holder is a CAS from a YouTube Video by Angie Juda,Chic'nScratch.  You can find it by searching for “Gingham Gala Coaster Post It Notes” on YouTube.

Below is the step-by-step tutorial I created for stamp camp.  Use any of your favorite DSP's.  We used the retired Gingham Gala because I have plenty of it.  If you would like a FREE printable tutorial, leave a comment with your email address or send me an email!  Let's get started.


Happy Stampin’!

     NOTE:  My first change was to the size of the DSP for the cover.  The coasters are 3-1/2 x 3-1/2, same as Angie’s, but I enlarged the DSP measurement to 5 x 5 for easier handling.  (If you use 4x4 coasters, use 6x6 DSP.)  I changed the CS for the inside/binding to 6-7/8 x 3-1/4 and the scoring to 3-1/4 and 3-5/8 to allow for a full-size StickyNnote pad.  Angie used a half Sticky Note pad.  
     If you have any questions at all about this project, feel free to contact me.
