Smackin' Acetate and Postage Due

We learned the Smackin' Acetate Technique at my October Technique Geek Class (click HERE to learn more about techniques) and this is the card the gals made.  I chose the Postage Due stamp set (Clear #126397 or Wood #126395) for this project.  The colors are Primrose Petals, So Saffron and Baja Breeze.

Postageduesmackin


There are alot of little detail items on this card.  Notice the partial ticket sticking up in the left corner, I used the Ticket Duo Builder Punch on a scrap of Primrose Petals but only left a small portion sticking up behind the main image.  Add a Basic Rhinestone Jewel to draw attention to it.

The Primrose Stitched Satin Ribbon knot in the bottom left also adds a bit more detail.  The card opens on the side

Postageduesmackinedge
Here is the detail on the open edge.  I created this look by using the Large Scallop Edgelit, Delicate Designs Folders and the Essentials Paper-Piercing pack.  I love that all these products are made to be used together for a complete look.

Technique Geeks - Plaid Making!

This is one of the cards my gals made at a recent Technique Geeks Class, I call it Plaid Making.  Learn more about my Technique Geeks Class Files HERE.

Sweetsforthesweetplaid

We used the Sweets for the Sweet stamp set and the color combination is Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral and Pool Party. 

I love how Stampin' Up! products coordinate.  We stamped the lollipop/pinwheel stick on Whisper White and punched it out with the Extra Large Oval Punch.  We then cut out two pinwheels and layered them on the stick and mounted the oval to the middle of the Dotted Oval Frame from the Designer Frames Textured Impressions Embossing Folder Set.

Technique Geeks - Rubber Cement Resist

Rubbercementblue

Here's a fun Christmas Card that we made at last month's Technique Geeks Class.  We used the rubber cement resist technique and all the stampers thought it was one of the best techniques to date.

My inspiration came from this card that I received in our Founder's Circle swap.  I knew right away that this was going to be a fun technique.

Last Chance Designer Series Paper - Double Pocket Card

Fabulousfloretsdblcardcover

I haven't made one of these cards in ages!!  They are so cool and they can be made from a single sheet of DSP that measures 8 1/2 x 11.  Mine uses the retiring Lap of Luxury Designer Series paper and the Fabulous Florets set from the Summer Mini Catalog.

Fabulousfloretsdblcardclose 


I stamped the floral image in the new Wisteria Wonder color and added cut out flowers stamped in Pretty in Pink.  The middles of the flowers are stamped in Concord Crush and cut out.  All the flowers were covered with Smooch Illuminate Top Coat to give them some sparkly shine and shimmer.

Fabulousfloretsdblcardin 

You fold it up and it creates a card with two pockets inside. 

Fabulousfloretsdblcardpullouts 


I have stamped my greeting on one of the cards and the other is where I will attach a Chico's gift card for my sister-in-laws birthday.

These are so simple to make and I have step by step directions for you in THIS POST.

Tutorial - Paper Buttons

Islandfloralcard

I posted this card from my Be a Big Shot at Home Class Series a few weeks ago and have received quite a few inquiries as to how I did the paper button. 

It is a very simple process and here is a tutorial showing you those steps.

Ring First, you need to punch out four 1" circles then two more using your 3/4" circle punch.  Turn these last two punchouts into rings by then sliding the 1" circle over the hole created by the 3/4" circle and punching.

Group 

Glue the four solid circles together making sure the edges are lined up.  Punch two holes in your stack with your Crop-a-Dile.  Buttonholes You can make a template by placing your Eyelet setting mat from the Mat Pack on a scrap piece of paper and coloring in two adjacent holes.  Buttonholes2 Punch these out with your Crop-a-Dile and then with the 1" Circle to create a template.  Keep this for future use.  Lay your template on your circle stack and punch your holes with the Crop-a-Dile.  Now add your two rings to the top.  Thread some of our new Baker's Twine through the holes and tie in a bow to complete your paper button. 

CE Looking to shine up your button, cover it with Crystal Effects prior to adding your twine and let it dry.  I dry mine overnight.

Technique Geeks - Clear Block Stamping

Sailawayblockgroup

This is another technique we learned at my May Technique Geeks Class.  Clear Block Stamping is just the coolest thing and the Sail Away stamp is the perfect image for it.

I dug out my dusty Define Your Life set and used it on this card.  I just thought the "journey" definition fit really well with the feel of these cards.

We took a piece of Not Quite Navy DSP from the Regals Patterns Stack and added a strip of the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets before running it through the Tasteful Trim Die.  This made it super easy to attach the Zig Zag Trim strip.

Sailawayblockclose Did you know that the Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets package includes twelve 12x12 sheets, that is a mere $1.25 per sheet.  What a bargain!!!

Everything Old IS New Again!!

I was rumaging through some old cards and came across THIS CARD done by my friend Deann.  I thought it would be perfect for a make over using new products and colors.  So here is my "make over"

Justbelievevase 
The flower vase is created from the Wide Oval Punch.  You punch out the oval and then slide the top of the oval into the side of the punch and punch off a bit, then make a straight cut across the bottom with your Paper Snips.  I added a strip of Concord Crush card stock and the little Paper Daisy was colored using a Sponge Dauber and Pear Pizzazz ink.  The Pumpkin Pie Brad finishes it off

The focal point is an image from the Just Believe set that I inked up with markers in Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait and Concord Crush.  I paper pierced around the focal point and added my greeting from A Word For You in Concord Crush Classic Ink

Paperrdaisies Stampin' Up!'s new Paper Daisies are made so you can easily dye them any of our 45 colors.  In my sample, I used a Sponge Dauber to add the Classic Ink.  You can also use an Aqua Painter with ink refills, markers, pastels, or watercolor crayons to achieve varying degrees of color.  They are item #119243 and you get 40 flowers (10 of each size) in a package for only $6.95
