Long time, old card

I haven’t been into posting on my blog lately. I haven’t been creating as much as I used to. Having said that, I’m currently making a large card order for a client, which is what I’m really supposed to be doing right now, hehe. I love making cards for clients!

I came across this photo of a very old card that doesn’t appear to have been published on my blog before, so I’m posting it now. Many of the items are non-SU! Let me know if you have any questions…except about the envelope. I have no recollection as to how I did that! Is it a stamp? Paper? No clue. It was for an old card order and it’s long gone. It is cool though!

If you’re out there and miss me, give me a shout-out if you get the chance. I’ll try to do better at posting if there’s a desire. Otherwise, feel free to look around. There is a lot of inspiration here – I even come here from time to time to get ideas!

Now if you’re still with me, here are some long overdue updates about Stampin’ Up!’s current promotions.

The Jan. – June 2020 mini catalog can be found here, or on my right side-bar.

The Sale-a-Bration brochure can be found here, and is also on my right side-bar.

The Sale-a-Bration 2nd release brochure can be found here, and is also on my right side-bar.

Sorry for the delay!

Easy Christmas tags

Hi guys! I made these simple Christmas tags using 2 different stamp sets. I could go on an on! They were so much fun.

Here’s a tip on each of the moose: the first one was stamped in VersaMark ink on Whisper White card stock and gold embossed. For the second one, I stamped the outline only of the moose using Memento Black ink on Crumb Cake card stock. For the third one I stamped the body of the solid moose image in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White card stock, then stamped the outline of the moose using Memento Black ink.

UNFORTUNATELY due to its popularity, the Moose Punch has sold out completely! I prepared this post a couple of weeks ago but forgot to schedule it so I apologize that you can no longer get this punch. 😟

These stamp sets are from the Holiday Catalog!

And unrelated to Christmas tags, doesn’t a moose look funny without a tail?? Haha!

Product List

Moose Punch

$18.00

Here are 3 boxes made from various Hallowe’en themed DSP and card stock. I got the box directions from this post. The 2 boxes on the end measure 4″ x 5.25″ and the middle box measures 4″ x 4.25″ I created the middle box using Crumb Cake card stock and adding a piece of DSP to the front. All I did to get this shape was cut the card stock 1″ smaller in height and followed the rest of the directions. I had a lot of fun making these boxes, as I usually do! Some of the items used are retired.

Did you notice the potion jars on the middle box? I just cut those from the adorable Monster Bash DSP and glued them down! The whole sheet has a ton of the cutest, not-too-creepy things in jars – so fun! And I love the Ornate Frames Dies – they really add some interest to projects.

Do you like to make boxes or bags for small gifts? Here are the instructions for making these boxes:

Paper Gift Bag Instructions

Cut your patterned paper or card stock to 12″ x 7″ What you’ll want to be the top of the bag needs to be along the 12″ side.

Lay paper on your Simply Scored tool with the “top” on the right side, which makes the edge sitting at the 7″ mark.

Using the stylus which comes with the Simply Scored tool, score at 1 3/4″. This becomes the bottom of the bag.

Turn the paper with the side that will be the top along the top of your Simply Scored tool. Score at 1/2″, 2 1/4″, 6 1/4″, and 8″.

Using a bone folder, crease well all of the lines you scored.

Holding the paper so that you’re looking at what will be the front of the bag with the bottom of the bag at the bottom, cut each of the 3 score lines ONLY up until the horizontal score line you made first. Cut off completely the smaller, narrow section on the left.

Take that narrow section and cut both ends at a slight angle.

On the “right” side of the paper of this narrow section add the tear tape or glue and attach to the opposite side of the box. Also add tape or glue to what will be the bottom of the box and fold.

Slightly fold in the top quarter of the bag, but not all the way down, so you can fit more inside 😉

Decorate as desired!

Tip: If you don’t have a Simply Scored tool, you can use a ruler and a pencil to mark where your score lines should be, then score using a stylus against the ruler!

More new patterned paper

At my recent workshop this Woven Threads Designer Series Paper was very popular – and for good reason! This is my second card I’m showing you using this paper pack. When I have paper that’s so pretty, I keep my layout very simple to show it off. But then again, I usually do a simple layout anyway, haha.

Don’t forget there are a few more days to take advantage of the annual buy 3 get 1 free paper sale! Please see this blog post for additional details, or head straight to my shopping site.  🙂
