A scrappy stamped card

Terri here with today's stamping project.

I am very honored to participate on the Kricut Krazy design team!

I have been a Stampin’ Up demonstrator since October 2010. I attended my first Stampin Up (SU) workshop in 1996. Most of what I saw at that first show is long forgotten. But I still remember exactly what I purchased, though, and why. My first SU purchase was stamp for a wheel and an ink cartridge for the wheel handle that had both purple and blue inks; being the crafting packrat that I am I believe I still own both! That long ago demonstrator showed how you could easily stamp the edges of tissue paper using the stamping wheel. I bought a wheel with a pansy design because I thought of how cool my gift bags would look with tissue paper stamped with two-toned pansies. Even then I wanted to share my stamping projects!

Over the years I have become more and more enthusiastic about stamping---and now I can honestly say most of my thoughts are stamping related. I have so much fun stamping and sharing my creations that I want everyone to have the same fun! Check out my Stampinghare blog to see more of my stamping projects.

I made the birthday card below as a sample for class I recently taught; I'm sharing the ingredients and recipe with you today. I'm calling it a scrappy card because it uses many scrap pieces of cardstock. I hope you like it! Please contact me if you have any questions. This card uses tone-on-tone white cardstock embossed with SU’s vintage wallpaper embossing folder and a splash of Melon Mambo color.

Whisper White 8.5 x 5.5 ", 4.75 x 3.3.75" scraps for flower, 1" circle, word window punch
Melon Mambo 4.25x .75", scrap for modern label punch

  1. Emboss the 4.75 x 3.375" white cs with the vintage wallpaper embossing folder. Cut it into 3 pieces, each 4 3/4" by 3 1/8"; to keep the order correct on the back of each, mark the pieces 1, 2, and 3. Round the corners on each piece.
  2. Attach the pieces to the white cs base in 1, 2, 3 order, centering top and bottom with about 1/16" between the pieces. 
  3. Using the ribbon lace border punch punch the 4.25x .75" piece of melon mambo cs. Attach to the card base. 
  4. Stamp a flower from mixed bunch set with melon mambo ink on a scrap piece of white cardstock (cs); punch out using the blossom punch. Using a bone folder curl the petals back.
  5. Stamp a flower center from Mixed Bunch stamp set with daffodil delight ink on another piece of whisper white cs; punch out with 1" circle punch. Attach with a dimensional to the center of the flower punched out above then attach to the card base with another dimensional.
  6. Stamp happy birthday from the Easy Events set in melon mambo ink on a scrap piece of whisper white cs; punch out just the birthday greeting using the word window punch.
  7. Punch a modern label using a scrap piece of melon mambo cs. Attach the happy birthday word window punch on top of the modern label punch. Attach to the card base with dimensionals.

Stamping is fun!

Kricut Krazy is back!

Hello everyone!

I've missed you all!  What a crazy summer it has been.  I just kept walking by my craft room and longing to sit down and do something fun.  I've dabbled in things over the summer but no real crafty fun day.  I've been cooking tons of stuff I find on pinterest (surprisingly most has been a huge hit!) I've tried my hand at washer jewelry - and failed (see photos below) but I'll keep trying.

I didn't realize my phone posted a video I took the other day until I started getting you tube comments and emails LOL So here ya go for those that haven't seen it:

Ok a coupla ya asked about the washer jewelry.  I wanted to make them for my daughters. Krystina's would have Ragan Lyn  on the large washer and 3/14/2013 on the small washer with a blue stone for March.  Amanda's would have Julianna Marie on the large washer and 7/3/2013 on the smaller one along with a red stone for July.  Sigh.  Why does everything look SO much better in my head than i…

Scrappin with my Bug Happy Birthday Blog Hop!

Hey Krazies!

My sweet friend Michelle from Scrappin with my Bug is having a birthday!  We're celebrating by gathering a bunch of fun ladies for a big blog hop that is going to run all weekend long. Lots of fun stuff to see along the way and prizes galore!  Be sure you stop at Michelles blog first to wish her a Happy Birthday! 

My Project
Happy Birthday Michelle!
 Front of the Gate fold card.  I used rub on dots for the top and bottom, 2 buttons to wrap the bakers twine around and cut the flowers from Walk in my garden.  The stamps are misc Birthday stamps and the paper is all DCWV various stacks.  I inked around the flowers with chalk ink (cats eye I think it's called)  Oh and the rub on dot borders are from Stamping Up.  I'm brand new with rubber stamps and will eventually learn how do do it correctly.
 Inside of the card.  It's your Day is from Pink Cricut - one of her stamp sets.... sorry don't remember which. Paper is from DCWV and I inked a lil here and there. 


You are going to LOVE this video. TRUST ME!

How do you store your 12x12 paper?  Do you like those Vertical folders from Cropper Hopper?  See that? 5.88.  I love them, but I needed 15 of them.  I have 5.  Well after putting my thinking cap on I came up with a way to do this for FREE.  and it takes 3 sheets of paper to decorate.  So watch the video then leave me a comment letting me know what you think.

At the end of the video is a contest for some blog candy - who wants a free cartridge?  I don't know what the cartridge is yet because my sponsor didn't tell me what they were sending - so we'll all be surprised YAAAY.

I love comments so please leave me some feedback!
