One Sheet Goodie Bag & Video!

I had a blast creating my project and video for you today. When I spotted the "English Garden Designer Paper" that you see here below:

 
I immediately fell in love with the bees in one of the papers and instantly knew I just had to create a punch art bee. How perfect to add it to a treat bag. In my video I show you how to create this bag using only one sheet of paper:




Isn't my bee adorable? I have the video from YouTube listed below or if you can't view it in your reader, the direct link is listed if you scroll down:

My part during this Mini Session was to showcase the "Made With Love" stamp set and here is a project I created to show you some of the stamps from that set that I got to use on my project today:


I decided to create a dresser card and to stuff all of the drawers with stuffed animals. How cute are those huh? I also used the Hardwood Stamp for the dresser & drawers:


Remember, this is the stamp set I will be using during the Mini Session and you can sign up right now by clicking here:

CREATE WITH CONNIE & MARY!

EDITED: Due to an overwhelming response, I am adding the steps to create this card:

Supplies Needed:

  • Cardstock: Tip Top Taupe, Whisper White, Mint Macaron, So Saffron, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Smoky Slate
  • Inks: Tip Top Taupe, Mint Macaron, So Saffron, Soft Sky, Pink Pirouette, Smoky Slate
  • Stamps: Made With Love, Hardwood
  • Accessories: Silver Mini Brads, White Baker's Twine
  • Tools: Large Oval Punch, 1/2" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Deco Labels Collection Framelits Dies, Paper Piercer, Sponge Dauber
Directions:


  • Card Base: Tip Top Taupe Cardstock measuring 11" x 4-1/4". Score in the center at 5-1/2" and fold. Using your Paper Cutter or an exacto knife, remove 1/4" from each side by starting at 1/4" below the fold line on each side. This will shape the top of your dresser. You will now use the Deco Label #3 at the very bottom of the card to cut the design for the bottom of the dresser. Add a large post-it note across the top even with where you cut the 1/4" strips, leaving 1/4" at the top to  stamp on. Stamp the Hardwood stamp image using Tip Top Taupe Ink horizontally. Remove the post-it note and place over the small strip you just stamped. Stamp the Hardwood image again but vertically this time. Remove post-it note. Using a sponge, sponge Tip Top Taupe Ink around all the edges. 
  • Layer #2: Cut three pieces of Tip Top Taupe Cardstock measuring 1-1/4" x 3-1/4". Stamp the Hardwood stamp image using Tip Top Taupe Ink and sponge all the edges with Tip Top Taupe Ink. Glue in place on your card base, spacing evenly and using Stampin' Dimensionals. These are the dresser drawers.
  • Cut (6) circles using Mint Macaron Cardstock and the 1/2" Circle Punch. Add a hole in the center with a Paper Piercer and add a Mini Brad in the center of each circle. You may have to cut the legs off of the brads a little so they don't stick out. Add a Stampin' Dimensional to the back of each circle and glue to your dresser drawers as handles. I glued mine a little short of 1/2" on each side.
  • Sentiment: Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White Cardstock using Tip Top Taupe Ink. Cut out using the Large Oval Punch. Use your Paper Snips to snip off each end to square off and look like a sign. Stamp the birds feet only at the very top. Add Baker's Twine to the back and hang off one of the handles. Glue in place. 
  • Animals: Stamp each animal as shown in the photo. Example: Soft Sky Cardstock bunny with Soft Sky Ink. Hand-cut each animal and glue in place tucking them part-way in the dresser drawers and one of the birds on the sign lined up the feet!

There's still time to sign up and receive all of our projects in one sitting! Make sure you do that okay? Now let's move on to our Saturday Blog Hop:


So our theme for today's hop is "Can't Resist Me". There are several ways to achieve this. You can use the Color Me Irresistible DSP or the resist technique with Clear Embossing Powder. I chose to use the designer paper for today's card:


I used the designer paper that has little tear drops that are embossed in clear over white paper. I added color to my paper by sponging three ink  colors. I started at the very bottom with Island Indigo Ink, followed by Pool Party Ink and finally finished the sponging with Soft Sky Ink:


All of the stamped images are from the "Land To Sea" and "By The Tide" stamp sets which I hand-cut and glued to my card front. I will list all the products I used at the bottom of my post but for now, here are the links to view the remainder of the hop. You can click in either direction to get there:

Tag You're It Challenge #26!

I'm really having fun joining in on the "Tag You're It" challenge. The challenge is usually open for two weeks. This week, we drew inspiration from this photo:

I decided to CASE the tag as close to the photo as I could. I layered it, I used paper-piercing, I used butterflies and I used blue tones:


I used the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies for the shape of my tag, cutting one in Whisper White and the 2nd using the English Garden Designer Paper. I paper-pierced around the inside of the tag and added a sentiment from the Hello Life stamp set using Night of Navy Ink. I also added a small sliver of designer paper to the bottom of the white tag to coordinate with the 2nd tag:

The butterflies from Papillon Potpourri were inked in Night of Navy Ink and stamped on Whisper White Cardstock and cut out with the Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly Punches. I finished off the tag by adding White Perfect Accents and adding a double-bow at the top of the tag. I tied the tails together using White Baker's Twine above the double-bow!

Clipsters!

I didn't have time to work on "Two For Tuesday's" cards for today but instead am introducting you to Clipsters? Have you heard of them? No? They're little tiny flags that you create and hook through a paper clip. I think they are the neatest creation! Here's what I mean:


Aren't these adorable? I've had them on my to-do list for a long time and finally sat down and created one. If you search for "Clipsters" on Pinterest you'll see a whole bunch of them. What a great way to impact a card huh?


And there really isn't much to them. You can make them simple or complicated. I added two layered banners, threaded them through the paperclip and folded the back to glue the paper back-to-back. I then stamped a dragonfly from the "Awesomely Artistic" stamp set using So Saffron Ink on Whisper White Cardstock. I hand-cut the dragonfly and added 2-Way Glue and sprinkled Dazzling Diamonds:

I glued the dragonfly in place and added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of my clipster to glue it in place. I just LOVE this! Here are all of the Stampin' Up! supplies I used on today's card:

Merry Monday #167!

Hi Stampers! It's been two weeks since you've seen us at Merry Monday. Due to our busy summer schedule, we are posting each of our challenges to last two weeks to give you more time to participate in July & August. So let's move on to our new challenge. Bonnie wants us to add a heart(s) to our Christmas cards:


How fun! Can you spot my heart or hearts for this week's card:


I snuck two of them in there in coordinated Silver Foil Cardstock. The hearts coordinate with my Silver Foil Doily. Do you like?


I used multiple layers on my card this week and I added the addition of the Pumpkin Pie Cardstock as a non-traditional color. I love the way it brings out the greens and reds. I hope you join us for our challenge and remember, you have two weeks to play!
