Basket Bunch Carrot Box Video

Basket Bunch Carrot Box Video

Hello!  I created this cute project for Easter and decided to make a video to show how I made it.  It’s not perfect – in fact I didn’t do any editing on the video at all – so sorry about the little outburst from the dogs in the middle.  Hopefully I explained it enough so that it makes sense to everyone.  Below I’ll include a list of the supplies that I used.

I had this project in my mind because of the little carrot in the Basket Bunch stamp set.  Every Easter I buy these little chocolate carrots and wanted to make something combining them with the stamp set.  I almost got upset when I couldn’t find the chocolate carrots at the store – I though oh no I finally have an idea and they have stopped making them!  But I found them at my grocery store and when I went back yesterday they had even more than the first time I went.  Anyway here is my little project –

carrot-box

I used part of the packaging that the candy comes in – it holds the carrot inside my little box.  I explain that in the video but here are a few photos too.

Here is the video for you – I hope you’ll take a look and let me know what you think.

Tasty Trucks Sale-A-Bration

Do you like the cute little Tasty Trucks stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration brochure?  It’s quite cute!  Here in the town I live in we have a place called Truck & Tap.  It’s in downtown Woodstock in one of the old buildings – well the tap part is – the bar and the tables.  In the back of the building is a parking spot for a food truck.  Every day a different food truck pulls in and serves the food for that day.  It has become quite popular.  Often on Saturdays they have lobster truck come in – that’s the one we like!  But this little stamp set doesn’t have any lobsters – I may need to get some from another set and make a lobster truck!

So on to my card today – my truck is a hotdog truck!

These are the parts that I started with –

parts-photo

  • Dapper Denim card stock base.
  • Dapper Denim embossed layer – I used the Sparkle embossing folder
  • Whisper White piece
  • Tangerine Tango piece

And I used the Tasty Trucks stamp set and created this

tasty-truck

Since you can only get the Tasty Trucks as a free item when you spend $50 here is your $50 shopping list of items for this project:

  • Banner Triple Punch #138292 $23
  • Sparkle Embossing Folder #141468 $7.50
  • InColor Markers 2016-2018 #141393 $15
  • Archival Black Stamp pad #140931 $7

I also used markers from the neutrals and brights.  Alternately you could use an Aqua-painter and your ink pads to color the truck.

The truck set comes with hot dogs, tacos, cup cakes, ice cream and pancakes.  It would be a fun element on a scrapbook page.  I wonder when we will start hearing the ice cream truck in our neighborhood.

Have a great day stamping!

Remember Sale-A-Bration lasts through March 31st.  Place your order here.

Birthday Stamp a Stack

Last weekend I held a Birthday Stamp a Stack class it was lots of fun and everyone left with a stack of birthday cards ready to mail out.

There were three card designs using the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Paper Stack and the Balloon Adventures stamp set.  Everyone made 4 of each of the cards.  We embellished the cards with Bakers Twine, Linen Thread and Gold Glimmer paper.

Do you need a quick Valentine Treat?

Do you need a quick Valentine Treat idea?

I have one for you.  I pulled out my 6×6 Sending Love Paper Stack and just cut the sheets in half to make these candy wraps.

valentine-treat

Take the 3″ x 6″ piece of paper and adhere the two ends together.  Tie a piece of twine around the top – I used Whisper White Baker’s Twine.  And add a little tag.

Slide the candy inside – you can use glue dots to hold it in place.  I put Reeses Peanut Butter hearts inside of mine.  Very quick and you could make a whole stack for a class from the Sending Love Paper Stack.  Enjoy!

Fun Color Combo

Fun Color Combo

A week or so ago I was unpacking an order that I had received from Stampin’ Up! I had ordered several packs of Card Stock that I was running low on.  I pulled them all out and stacked them up and carried them to my craft room.  As I was walking I fanned them out and thought – hmm that looks like a nice color combo.  I posted a quick photo on Facebook to see what others thought and it received a bunch of likes. The colors were:

  • Real Red
  • So Saffron
  • Pool Party
  • Whisper White

color-card-stock

After that I thought I better create an idea with that color combo so I made this for my Card Class last week.  Yet again – quick and simple and I love it.

birthday-color-combo

Here are the supplies that I used:

  • Thick Whisper White card stock for the card base
  • Strips of Real Red, So Saffron, and Pool Party card stock and I stamped each one with stars from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set
  • Whisper White Baker’s Twine
  • Piece of Whisper White card stock stamped with Stylized Birthday stamp
  • Enamel Shapes – Brights & Subtles collections

So what do you think – do you like the color combo?

Love is in the Air

Last Friday was my monthly Card Maker’s Class.  I try to offer a variety of card choices at this class each month so that everyone can make the cards that the need coming up.  Well as we all know February is coming and that means Valentine’s day is coming.  I am not offering a class specific to Valentine’s day this year so I’ve been trying to sprinkle in some loved themed cards here and there and especially in my card class.

I find that I tend to come up with cards I really like at the very last minute before I need them.  Maybe when I have more time I keep changing and adding and over thinking it and when I’m pressed for time it’s just done because it has to be.  Well this creation is one of those.  As I got up Friday morning for my card class and looked over my selection of cards I realized I really should have one more Valentine choice.  So I ran to my craft room and created this just before class started.

sending-love-air-mail

Here are the supplies I used:
