SUO Challenges 108

Posted on

Hmm… so lets see, I had two blog tours in a row so I did’t get to tell you about Sunday! LOL! Sunday was a fun day! I met Michael at the Scrapbook store at noon. Dyan Reaveley was there teaching a class. She is a lovely English lady that has a line of stamps, stencils, ink, etc. called Dylusions with Ranger. Michael introduced me to her and we chatted for a bit. You can see Dyan’s blog HERE. After that we went to lunch in Farmingdale and there just happened to be a street fair so we took a peek that too. From there we stopped at Michaels and then by Kim and Brian’s for a bit. Later on I stopped by Andrew’s to drop off some vitamins, he’s not feeling well and has a busy week ahead of him so we are hoping to keep the cold at bay! As if being sick wasn’t enough he dropped his iPhone in water and came by to get some rice to put it in. Fingers crossed that all is well when he turns it on this morning. Everything always happens at once doesn’t it?! So all in all I had a great weekend and got to see lots of peeps which always makes me happy!!

Before we get to today’s post here are the weekly deals from Stampin’ Up!…

Today I’m over on the SUO Challenges blog for our The Treats the Thing challenge. I decided that I needed to make another shaker something so this is what I came up with. I took one of the Tiny Treat Boxes and covered the four sides with some All is Calm Designer Series Paper. I decided that the top was a good place for my shaker and I had just gotten some really snowy looking glitter (I know, I don’t really like glitter, but I’ll make an exception every once in a while!) so it needed to be a wintry scene on a very small scale! I used the Circles Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Window Sheet and some Lost Lagoon. One of the Shaker Frames is used to hold my glitter. The images are from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the trees in Pear Pizzaz and my Santa and reindeer are markered with Real Red and Chocolate Chip Stampin’ Write Markers. The Circles Collection Framelits cut out the images and complete the shaker frame. My tag is a piece of Lost Lagoon that is punched out with the Note Tag Punch. I heat embossed the sentiments in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder from the Cheerful Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and a piece of White Baker’s Twine tucked under the shaker holds it in place. A fun little shaker box to put a sweet little gift in! That’s my project for the SUO Challenges The Treats the Thing challenge. Let’s see what fun projects you can come up with, head on over to the blog for some more inspiration and upload yours to the gallery! I hope you enjoyed my little shaker box and I thank you for coming by for my little recap. Have a terrific Tuesday! 🙂

Creation Station Tour – Wondrous Wreath

Posted on

creation station header

Hi there and happy Sunday! I had a very busy day yesterday. I woke up and crafted for a bit and then I had to get ready for Erika to come over and make Daniel’s birthday decorations. Before that Andrew, my brother, Erika and I went to Croxley’s Ale House for lunch. We met two of my brother’s friends there and had a very nice lunch. They have 10 Cent wings and really good burgers and a very large selection of beer! After lunch we came back to my house and Erika and I worked on Daniel’s party decorations and Andrew worked on moving the rest of my blog over. The decorations are mostly finished and there is only one more piece to do for the blog. I have already reassigned the jkcardsonline.com web address to the new one, I just have to move the subscribers over and then I will be able to take down this one and only use the new one. For now I will be posting on both blogs, hopefully only until Monday! As I said I will also send out a test post to make sure that all of you are getting the emails. Thanks for you patience during the transition!

It’s time for another Creation Station Blog Tour and this month we are featuring the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Wonderful Wreath Framelits. Well, it’s generally an all around wreath theme! If you are following along with the tour you have arrived here from the talented Deborah Smart’s blog. Such great projects!! I have a card and a home decor project for you today so let’s get to them!

First up is a neat Christmas card. For the base I used a piece of Cherry Cobbler Card Stock and the background is a piece of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. My wreath is from the Wondrous Wreath Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Mossy Meadow on Vellum Card Stock. I sprinkled some Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder over the image and used my Heat Tool to set it. When you stamp on Vellum the ink takes a while to dry so it the perfect excuse to heat emboss it! I stamped it again with the berries from the set and used Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Emboss Powder for those. The Wondrous Wreath Framelits cut it out and some Multi-Purpose Glue adheres it to the card. The bow is from the same set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and also cut out with the Framelits. A little bit of Stampin’ Dimensional holds it to the wreath. I cut the Joy out from the Wonderful Wreath Framelits from a piece of Cherry Cobbler and heat embossed it with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder twice. I think that it gives it a very cool look, almost like patent leather. Some more Multi-Purpose Glue adheres that to the card. I love the simple elegance of the card and especially the shine on the Joy!

My next project is a fun wreath that will go on my wall somewhere in the house. I used a simple twig wreath that I had laying around in the Stampin Galley for my base. To create the bow I used the Gift Bow Bigz L Die and some Red Glimmer Paper. The berries around the wreath are also Red Glimmer Paper that I punched out with the 1/2″ Circle Punch. In the center hanging from apiece of Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine is a piece of Vellum Card Stock that I cut out with the Deco Labels Collection Framelits. My letters are Gold Glimmer Paper and I used the Little Letters Thinlits to cut them out and I adhered them with Multi-Purpose Glue. The ampersand is Red Glimmer Paper and is cut out with one of the dies from the Label Card Thinlits. I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals pieces to adhere that then tied it to the wreath. The bow and all the “berries” are adhered with hot glue to make sure that they stay in place! I love the sparkle of all of the Glimmer Paper and the unexpected hanging greeting in the middle!

Creation Station Tour – Fall Fest

Posted on

creation station header

Hello peeps! How is your weekend going so far? Mine is going well! I was in Manhattan most of the day yesterday and despite it being dreary and rainy I had a nice time seeing my friend Isabella! After I took the subway down to the Ink Pad and made a new friend. Michael is another crafty person and I had a nice chat with him. Hopefully I will see him again soon! After I came home I made a card, I had to it was World Card Making Day after all! Did you get to make a card or two yesterday?!

Sometimes Sunday’s mean it’s time for another Creation Station Blog Tour! Today is one of those Sundays! This time around we are doing a Harvest theme focusing on the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and the Tiny Treat Boxes. If you are following the tour then you have arrived here from the very talented Jennifer Downey’s Blog. I have three projects for you today, two cards and a little box. Lets get to them shall we?!

My first card uses the night sky technique that I did a little while ago. I really loved the way it looked and had to do it again! The base of the card is Night of Navy Card Stock. I used a piece of Watercolor Paper and the Tim Holtz Mini Ink Blending Tool with some Daffodil Delight first to create the moon. I then took some Post-it Tape and used the 1 1/4″ Punch to punch out a piece to mask over the moon.

Creation Station Tour 11 6-WM

Night of Navy and Blackberry Bliss are used to create the rest of the sky. The stars are Perfect Pearls mixed with a little water and dotted on with a paintbrush.

Creation Station Tour 11 7-WM

To make my ghost I took my Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker and colored around just the edge of the ghost stamp and stamped it on some more Watercolor Paper.

Creation Station Tour 11 2-WM

I then used a paintbrush and water to pull the ink into the middle of the ghost.

Creation Station Tour 11 3-WMCreation Station Tour 11 4-WM

A quick trip through the Big Shot with the Fun Fall Framelits and some black eyes that are punched out with the 1/8″ Circle Punch and he’s ready to go on the card.

Creation Station Tour 11 5-WM

But first I heat embossed one of the greetings from the September Paper Pumpkin Kit in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. A simple mailable card that uses two fun techniques!

Creation Station Tour 11 Boo Night Sky-WM

Next up is another neat card. The base of this one is Basic Black Card Stock and the background is a piece of paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper Pack. The panel is Sahara Sand and I used the Project Life Corner Rounder to round the corners. My partial circle is cut out with the Circles Collection Framelits. The greeting is from the For All Things Stamp Set and is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black. For a little extra detail I used the Essentials Paper-Piercing Pack to pierce all around the edges before adhering the panel to the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The pumpkin and leaves are all from the Fall Fest Photopolymer Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangerine Tango, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzaz. I cut them out with the Fun Fall Framelits and adhered the to the card with more Stampin’ Dimensionals. Another simple card but I love the piercing detail and the circle cut out!

Creation Station Tour 11 Hello Fall Pierced-WM

My last project is a box that I made using the Tiny Treat Boxes. They are 25 in a pack for $6.95! How can you go wrong?! To make my box I first separated it at the seam by prying the two pieces apart. I did this so I could cut out the pumpkins using the Fun Fall Framelits from the opposite sides of the box.

Creation Station Tour 11 1-WM

I then took some Vellum Card Stock and glued it to the inside of the box before using some Sticky Strip to adhere it back together. The embellishment on the top of the box is a piece of 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon that I trimmed the sides off of and pulled some threads out. I adhered it to the box top with some more Sticky Strip. Next up is some of the Tangelo Twist Sequin Trim from the September Paper Pumpkin Kit adhered with some Glue Dots. My pumpkin is from the Fall Fest Set and is cut out with the Fun Fall Framelits. I cut out one of the leaves stamped in Pear Pizzaz and used one of the Autumn Wooden Elements along with some of the black twine from the Paper Pumpkin Kit. A Stampin’ Dimensionals holds it in place.  Again, I have forgotten to pick up some of the tea lights! When I do get some I will take pictures of the place card holder and this box! LOL! I love all of the elements and simplicity of the box!

Creation Station Tour – Harvest

Posted on

creation station header

 

A very good Sunday to you my friends! I had a nice day yesterday, I did some crafting, ran some errands and straightened up the apartment a bit. Love a productive day. I had dinner with Anthony and Bill, they took me to Friday’s for a belated birthday meal. After that I ran up to Hofstra and picked up Andrew and took him home. They had a carnival/music festival and he was there from 10:45 in the morning. He said they have it every year and he felt he needed to go to it and he had fun so all in all a win!. In other news it’s time for another Creation Station Blog Tour! This time around we are doing a Harvest theme focusing on the For All Things Stamp Set and Fall themed projects. If you are following the tour then you have arrived here from the very talented Deborah Smart’s Blog. I have three projects for you today, two cards and a place card holder. Lets get to them shall we?!

Up first is a sort of one layer card. All of the elements on the background are stamped onto a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. The leaves, acorns and greeting are all from the For All Things Stamp Set. The leaves are stamped in Hello Honey, Tangelo Twist, Mossy Meadow and Blackberry Bliss. I masked off the area for the greeting with a piece of printer paper that I cut out with the Word Bubbles Framelits. The acorns and greeting along with the border from the Project Life Point & Click Photopolymer Stamp Set are all heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I mounted the finished panel to a piece of Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock and then adhered that to a Very Vanilla card base. I love all of the leaves and the heat embossed acorns and greeting give the card a little extra shine.

Creation Station Tour 10 Leaves Card-WM

My next card is somewhat related to the Dreamcatcher that I did a little while ago. I’m my own worst critic but I love the way this card turned out, exactly as I had pictured it in my little brain! We begin with a piece of Hello Honey Card Stock for the base. My background is a simple piece of Very Vanilla. All of the feathers are from the Four Feathers Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangelo Twist, Blackberry Bliss and Hello Honey and are cut out with the Feathers Framelits.

Creation Station Tour 10 Pic 1-WM

I cut the headband out of a piece of Baked Brown Sugar with the Ovals Collection Framelits. I held the headband in place while I adhered the feathers to the card. Once the feathers were adhered I used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the headband. On either side I tucked some strands of Gold Sequin Trim underneath and adhered them in place with Glue Dots. In the middle of the headband is a Gold Basic Metal Button with a piece of Baked Brown Sugar threaded through the holes and on either side are two gold sequins.

Creation Station Tour 10 Pic 2-WM

My greeting is from the For All Things Stamp Set and is stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. I used the Chalk Talk Framelits to cut it out and before I removed it from the cutting plate I used my Baked Brown Sugar Stampin’ Write Markers to trace inside the Framelit.

Creation Station Tour 10 Pic 3-WMCreation Station Tour 10 Pic 5-WMCreation Station Tour 10 Pic 4-WM

I backed it with a piece of Blackberry Bliss, also cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits and adhered them to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A really fun and I think quite realistic looking headdress!

Creation Station Tour 10 Headdress Card-WM

My last project is a fun place card holder. I used the Curvy Keepsake Box to cut out some Vellum Card Stock. I adhered the two pieces together with some Fast Fuse Adhesive. The image is from the For All Things Stamp Set and is heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My name plate is created by cutting out some Blackberry Bliss with the Little Letters Thinlits and adhering them to a piece of Tangelo Twist backed with some Hello Honey. One of the feathers from the Four Feathers Stamp Set is stamped in Blackberry Bliss and cut out with the Feathers Framelits and tucked in behind the main panel. On the back is a Mini Clothes Pin to hold it to the ornament. I would have liked to have put a tea light inside but I could’t find any on the house! A neat place card holder that lets you change out the names whenever you want!

So there are my three projects for the Creation Station Blog Tour featuring a Fall theme. I really hope that you enjoyed the projects and are inspired to make some Fall cards and decor. Now continuing on with the tour your next stop is our talented leader Jen Arkfeld. Love all of the cool things that she comes up with! Thank you for coming by to see my projects!

Control Freaks September Blog Tour

Posted on

freakwelcome2013

Hello there and welcome to this month’s Control Freaks Blog Tour! This time around the theme is Halloween! If you are following along on the tour that means that you have arrived here from the talented Julie Davison’s blog! Super projects don’t you think?!! I have two projects for you, a fun banner and a simple card!I’m loving all of the fun goodies in the Holiday Catalog, how about you?!

First up is my Halloween Banner. The bases of the banners are Crushed Curry Card Stock and the backgrounds are piece of paper from the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper pack. I used the Banners Framelits to cut them out and then punched holes in the top corners with the 1/16″ Circle Punch. The letters are all cut out from Tangerine Tango with the Little Letters Thinlits. I used the 1 1/4″ Scallop Circle Punch to punch out the pieces of Basic Black that back each one. They are all adhered to the banners with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped two skeletons from the Freaky Friends Stamp Set in Versa-Mark and heat embossed them with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Some Basic Black Baker’s Twine threaded through the banners and it’s ready to hung up. Lots of trips through the Big Shot but pretty simple to put together. A fun little Halloween decoration for any room in the house!

The second project I have for you is a simple card. The base of it is Basic Black Card Stock. I created the background with a piece of Elegant Eggplant and the stars mask from the Hearts and Stars Decorative Masks using embossing paste and a pallet knife. Along the bottom is a piece of Mossy Meadow and I used my Fringe Scissors to create some grass and heat embossed the sentiment from the Holiday Home Photopolymer Stamp Set in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I adhere it along the bottom and trimmed off the excess before adhering it to the card base. My moon is a piece of Crushed Curry that I punched out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. The ghost is a piece of Wisper White that I cut out with the Fun Fall Framelits and adhered two googlie eye to. The moon and the ghost are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A fun card for the special little person for Halloween!

Creation Station Tour – Kinda Eclectic

Posted on

creation station header

Hello everyone! I had a very crafty day yesterday and the weather here was just perfect, cool but sunny! Today it’s time for the Creation Station Blog Tour! I’m hoping that you have been along for our previous ones! If this is your first time here welcome and I hope that you find inspiration in the projects. This time around we are featuring the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set. If you are following the tour you have arrived here from Jennifer Downey’s blog, pretty awesome projects huh?! I have three projects for you today. I took some pictures of them so you could follow along!

The first project that I have for you today is a relatively quick but really cute tiny gift box. We have new Tiny Treat Boxes in the upcoming Holiday Catalog and they come 25 to a pack, they are about 2″ square. I used the featured stamp set Kinda Eclectic to stamp the dots around the top on the sides in Night of Navy. Along the bottom is some Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper that I tore (I have a difficult time doing that! LOL!) and adhered with some Fast Fuze Adhesive.

Creation Station Tour 8 - Pic 1

I adhered two of the butterflies stamped in Blackberry Bliss and punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch on opposite sides. On top is a piece of burlap that I had from long ago, I cut it out with the “Vintage” Circles #2 Bigz Die and frayed the edges. Two of the leaves are stamped in Always Artichoke and cut out with my Paper Snips. On top of that is a flower from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set stamped in Lost Lagoon and cut out with my Paper Snips too. I adhered the burlap with Sticky Strip, the leaves with Glue Dots and the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals. In the middle is one of the new Gold Basic Metallic Buttons threaded with some Linen Thread and adhered to the middle of the flower with a Glue Dot. A fun little box that would be perfect for a little piece of candy or maybe some bling!

Creation Station Tour 8 - Box 2

Next up is one of our Kraft Grid Journals that I decorated with some fun stuff! I saw a flower in this month’s Stampin’ Success (our Demonstrator Magazine) and had to make one! The flower is made by coating one side of the 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon with Mod-Podge and letting it dry completely. When it’s dry you use one of the Circles Collection Framelits to cut them out. I found that they didn’t cut all the way through but my Paper Snips finished the job. I love the way they stay nice and crisp along the edges thanks to the Mod-Podge!.

Creation Station Tour 8 - Pic 2

I put a slit halfway up the ones that go around and the hot glued them all together. In the middle I took a Vintage Faceted Button and tied some Linen Thread in a bow and adhered the smallest of the Gold Basic Metallic Buttons in the center with a Glue Dot.

Creation Station Tour 8 - Pic 4

The leaves are cut from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Flower Fair Framelits.

Creation Station Tour 8 - Pic 3

My three butterflies are form the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set and are stamped in Tangelo Twist, the large ones are punched out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and the smaller one with Bitty Butterfly Punch. I used the new Handheld Stapler to make the bodies and then adhered them to the journal with Stampin’ Dimensionals. My notes stamp is from a Paper Pumpkin Kit and is stamped in Mossy Meadow.

Creation Station Tour 8 - Pic 5

I love that flower, it’s a fun different embellishment and I think the journal will go in a shadow box and make a nice home decor piece for someone special!

Creation Station Tour 8 - Journal

Creation Station Tour 8 - Burlap Flower

Lastly I have a quick card. The base of it is Kraft Card Stock and the background is a piece of Blackberry Bliss. I heat embossed the greeting from Kinda Eclectic in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then adhered the background to the base with Fast Fuze, it was a little warped after the heat embossing and I wanted to make sure that it would stay flat! The sunburst and the leaves are from the same set, the leaves are stamped in Always Artichoke and the sunburst in Crushed Curry. I cut them both out with my Paper Snips. In the middle of the sunburst is a piece of Gold Foil Sheet that I punched out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. The sunburst is adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the leaves with Multi-Purpose Glue. My little gold sequins are made using a die from My Favorite Things Die-namics and Gold Foil Sheet, I saw the die and just couldn’t resist, I can make sequins from any card stock now! I love the bold background with the fussy cut sun, makes it stand out nicely!

Creation Station Tour – Confetti

Posted on

creation station header

Hello everyone! I had a very nice afternoon in Manhattan yesterday! I will fill you in on all of it tomorrow, including some fun pictures, but today it’s time for the Creation Station Blog Tour! I’m hoping that you have been along for our previous ones! I f this is your first time here welcome and I hope that you find inspiration in the projects. This time around we are featuring the Dotty Angles Photopolymer Stamp Set, Confetti and Coaster Board. If you are following the tour you have arrived here from Deborah Smart’s blog, now those were some great projects! I have two projects for you today. Normally I would have taken pictures of the steps to make the projects but with my moving and unpacking distracting me I forgot! I hope that the descriptions are good enough for this time!

First up I have a fun card for you and it starts off with a base of Hello Honey Card Stock. I stamped my greeting from the Hi There Stamp Set, stamped in Bermuda Bay and the stamp from the Dotty Angles Stamp Set stamped across the top in the same color. Before adhering the background I adhered a piece of Bermuda Bay for a nice double border. I used my Stampin’ Trimmer and the Squares Collection Framelits to cut a piece of Whisper White in the form of a Polaroid Frame. I adhered a piece of Window Sheet to the back and used the excess sides from the Stampin’ Dimensionals to pop it up and make a holder for my confetti. The confetti is simply Bermuda Bay and Hello Honey Card Stock that I punched out with the 1/4″ Circle Punch. I adhered the Polaroid to the card to create the shaker frame. A piece of Hello Honey cut out with the Squares Collection Framelits creates the border around the frame and a few extra punched out pieces are adhered next to the greeting. Sometimes when you need some confetti a few simple punched out circles are a good thing to use. A fun card that is sure to brighten anyone’s day!

My final project for today uses Coaster Board. I was sitting there wondering what to do when I thought, I wonder if you can watercolor Coaster Board? I got out my Flower Frenzy Bigz L Die and cut out some and went to work with my Aqua Painter. I used Crisp Cantaloupe for the base flower, Calypso Coral for the next layer and Tangerine Tango for the top. My middle uses Crushed Curry and Daffodil Delight. While the Coaster Board was drying I used my fingers to shape the petals a little. The leaves are painted with some Pear Pizzaz and adhered to the Soft Sky Background with Multi-Purpose Glue. The main pieces of the flower are all adhered to each other and the base with Stampin’ Dimensionals . A Mini Glue Dot holds the top piece in place and some Basic Jewels Pearls complete the flower. My greeting is from the Tag Talk Stamp Set and is stamped in Calypso Coral and also adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I decided that a shadow box frame that I picked up from HomeGoods would be a perfect way to display the project. I love the color variation in the Coaster Board when it’s watercolored! Such a cool effect don’t you think?!
