Spool Cards using the Envelope Punch Board

Came across Spool Cards on Pinterest and just had to make some.

Spool_card_both

I started with a piece of card stock that measured 3-3/4 x 11.  Fold it in half and place it on the Envelope Punch Board at the 1-3/8 mark and punch.  This mark is a bit tricky as the 1" mark is just to the left of the punching mechanism.

Spool1

Flip the car over and punch again.  Do this on both sides and all four ends so your card looks like the picture.

Spool2

Open the card and place it on your Stampin' Trimmer.  You will be cutting off the piece between the punched areas.

Spool3 Spool4

I cut the Etcetra Designer Series Paper to 2-7/8 x 3.  This paper is part of the Retired List Blowout Sale and it is 30% off making it only $7.67 a package.

Spool_card_pool

I also used the retiring Drress Up Framelits and the Hung Up Cute Clups (hanger clip), both of these items are on sale with the Blowout Sale as well.

Fun with the NEW What's Up? Stamp Set

I received the NEW What's Up? stamp set on the cruise and I got to playing with it this weekend. I wanted to create my own Designer Series Paper by stamping the various arrows in diagonal lines. I think they are pretty even considering I did it free hand without my Stamp-a-ma-jig. :-)

Something_to_say_orange

I used one of the NEW In Colors called Tangelo Twist.  While it is similar to Pumpkin Pie, it is alot brighter and I love it with Pacific Point and Real Red.

I ran my Real Red layer through the Big Shot with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and added some of the retiring Pacific Point Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon to separate the layers. This ribbon is on the Retired List Blow Out Sale for 25% off, making it only $3.71.  Check out everything on sale HERE.

I used my Something to Say greeting set and placed both greetings on the same clear block together. 

I have a couple more cards with this hand made DSP so come back tomorrow for another one.

What's Up? stamp set

Tie Dye Embossing on Chevron Bags

One of the Make & Take projects from my clubs in May.  We used the tie dye embossing technique directly on the Chevron Bags.  The large Thank You image is from the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set that will be available again when the new catalog goes live on June 2nd....can't wait!!!

Another_thank_you_bags

Another_thank_you_emboss

All three of these colors of embossing powder are on the retiring list and the Tempting Turquoise is on sale!

Another_thank_you_tag

We snipped the tags with the Angled Tag Topper Punch and added a few more items from the retiring list. Product List

The inside of the bags contain a stamped notecard.  We stamped images from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set in Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise and Wild Wasabi and mounted the Whisper White mat to a layer of Pool Party Core'dinations card stock.

Fun with Something to Say and the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack

One of the new sets I purchased during our demonstrator pre-order is the Something to Say set, you can see it on page 104 in the new catalog.

It has a number of greetings PLUS the three images that coordinate with the new Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.

Something_to_say_punches I wanted to use my NEW In Colors along with the stamps and here is the result.

Something_to_say_moonlight

I stamped the tiny flower image in four of the new colors, Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist and Lost Lagoon and punched them out with the tiny flower punch.   I added them randomly to the front of my card.

The strip of Designer Series Paper at the bottom is from the Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack.  This paper is included in my New Catalog Product Shares, read more about them HERE.

I also added some of our new Blackberry Bliss Satin Stitched Ribbon.  This yummy ribbon is wonderful to work with, I can't wait for you to try it.  These ribbons are included in my New Catalog Shares.
