Consume Cookies Post It Note Holder-VIDEO

If you're looking for a great back to school gift for teachers or something that would be great for coworkers or maybe you just want a gift idea that won't break the bank and that isn't sugary.  I know I get lots of requests for non-food treats.  This one is perfect!  I'm using the Nothing's Better Than Set and the coordinating Love You More Than Dies.  These are in the Annual Catalog.  They've been around for a couple of years so you won't find these bundled but they're still a great purchase.  

stampin up, nothings better than, love you more than

Our treat today is a Post It Note holder.  I don't know about you but I LOVE Post It Notes.  I use them in my business a lot especially when I need to quickly jot down something I need to add to my next order or write measurements for a projects.  This is sized for the standard 3" x 3" Post It Notes.  

stampin up, nothings better than, love you more than

I was making over 20 of these so I separated each stack in half so one package of Post It Notes will make two gifts.  I'm listing measurements for the full stack of Post It Notes too.  You can choose which will work best for you.  I have it held closed with some small button magnets that are hidden with some DSP, so you never see them.  I get mine on Amazon, I usually search 'button magnet' you can also find them at Total Element. 

My box for half a stack of Post It Notes:
7 5/8" x 3 1/4"
On the long side score at 1", 1 1/4", 4 3/8" and 4 5/8"

DSP 3" x 2 3/4" and 3" x 3/4"

For a full stack of Post It Notes
8 1/8" x 3 1/4"
On the long side score at 1", 1 1/2", 4 5/8" and 5 1/8"

DSP measurements are the same.

I used some DSP from the Celebrate Everything DSP Host Stack.  This DSP can only be earned with Stampin' Rewards.  You'll start accumulating Stampin' Rewards with a minimum order of $150.  Gather a friend and put your order in together then split this mega DSP stack.  I used the Stamparatus to stamp my cookies.  Check out my video for all the other tips and tricks for this project.  Make sure you subscribe to my channel while you're there so you never miss a video.  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for these products in my Online Store.

Caroling Mouse Rejoices

I have another really cute Caroling Mice card for you today.  I shared this card last week that also features this set.  I love both cards!  The Caroling Mice Set is a Host Exclusive item that you can only get with Stampin' Rewards.  Those start when your order reaches $150.  If you want more information on Stampin' Rewards please contact me or check out the post I shared last week featuring this card here.  Much like last weeks card I used Stampin' Blends to color my mouse.  The colors I used are listed in the supply list below.  I went for a bold and non traditional color combo for this card.  I wasn't sure I'd love it, but I actually do!  It's unexpected, bold and fun!  

stampin up, caroling mice

There are no dies for this set so you do have to fussy cut the mouse.  For my Blackberry Bliss piece I ran that through the Timeworn Type Embossing Folder for some extra texture.  There's no greeting with this set so I pulled in a greeting from the Hope and Peace Set.  I stamped it twice.  Once in Soft Succulent on my die cut label and once in Blackberry Bliss on a scrap of Basic White.  I fussy cut just the 'rejoices' and adhered it directly over the stamped Soft Succulent piece.  This is a fun way to get a two toned greeting.  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for these products in my Online Store.

August Class Cards

Over the weekend I held my huge in person Annual BOGO Retired Sale.  I do this sale once a year and it's always huge and well attended.  I sell my older retired items.  I always look forward to this class because I know that my slightly used products are going to homes where they'll be loved and used!  At the class my guests all get to make a couple of cards free, just a fun thank you from me!  Here's the two cards they got to make.  I don't provide supply lists or measurements for these cards, that's a perk for my class attendees.  

stampin up, hello Harvest

The first card uses the Hello Harvest Bundle and the Gingham Cottage DSP.  I LOVE this DSP!  The smaller print is my favorite but I also love the larger print side.  The pumpkin is die cut from the Glimmer Specialty Paper in the Mini Catalog.  I love this Vanilla and gold glimmer together!

The second card uses the Celebrate Everything Host DSP.  This is an exclusive DSP stack that you can only purchase with Stampin' Rewards.  You accumulate Stampin' Rewards with orders of $150+.  This DSP is so amazing!  If you want more info on how you can earn this DSP please contact me.  

stampin up, celebrate with tags

I paired up the DSP with the Celebrate With Tags Bundle.  This has quickly become one of my favorites from the Mini Catalog.  I love that you can use it year round!  If you're in the Albuquerque, NM area and want to attend my next in person class please reach out to me for my most up to date class schedule.  You can shop for these supplies in my Online Store.

Best Witches Kit Kat Pouch-VIDEO

I have the cutest little Halloween treat for you today.  I'm featuring the Best Witches Stamp Set.  This is a no cut, no glue treat so it's perfect to make a bunch of for class gifts, coworkers, teachers, parties or anyone you meet throughout the day!  This one is sized to hold a mini Kit Kat.  I'm sure other mini chocolates or candies would fit in here too.  I just happened to have the Kit Kats on hand.  I colored my cute witch with Stampin' Blends.  I have all the colors used listed below in my supply list.  There aren't any dies so you will have to fussy cut.  If you were making a bunch and didn't want to fussy cut you could stamp her on a large circle or other shape.  

stampin up, best witches

I used some DSP from the Black and White DSP stack.  The star pattern is my favorite!  Any of the patterns would work though.  I used a glue dot to hold my Kit Kat in place but that's an optional step.  Finally to keep it closed I used some of our new Iridescent Trim from the Mini Catalog.  I loved how well it paired with the Parakeet Party Cardstock.

The pouch is so easy to make!  No trimming or gluing!  

Parakeet Party Cardstock 4 1/2" x 3 1/2"
On the long side score at 2" each side

Caroling Mice

Oh my goodness is today's card just the cutest!!!  I love it so much!  I'm featuring the Caroling Mice Set from the Mini Catalog.  If you're thinking that you've missed this set in the mini you might have.  This set is on the very last page of the catalog and is one of the host exclusive products you can only purchase with your Stampin' Rewards Dollars.  How do you earn Stampin' Rewards Dollars?  You'll start accumulating Stampin' Rewards Dollars with a $150 order.  The more you order the more you'll earn.  If you don't want to place an order that large, gather some friends and put your orders in together to reach that minimum $150 level.  I can even open an exclusive Host Code for you.  If you want more information on how to earn this set please let me know, I'd love to chat with you and set up a plan.  Email me at stamperrdn@q.com 

stampin up, caroling mice

I used lots and lots of Stampin' Blends to color my images.  I have all the colors linked below in my supply list.  I used all of the new In Colors along with some neutrals and a couple others.  I simply love the colors and how they stand out off the background.  There are no dies for this set so you will have to do some fussy cutting.  My greeting is from the Christmas To Remember Set and I die cut it with one of the labels from the Cracker Treat Box Dies.  

stampin up, caroling mice

Finally for my snowy background I used the White Refill that comes in the White Pad/Refill Set and a squeezed a couple of drops onto a clear block.  I also used my Wink of Stella Pen and squeezed out some of that sparkle too.  I mixed the two together then using my Wink of Stella brush I splattered it all over a Starry Sky piece that is 5" x 3 3/4".  Set it aside and let it dry completely.  You'll be left with a sparkly, snowy sky.  I love this technique and it really steps up your backgrounds.  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for these products in my Online Store.

Wonderful World Watercolor Wash

I have a gorgeous card to share with you today!  I didn't use a single die, this card is basically just ink and paper.  If you want to try your hand at more watercolor techniques this is a good one to start with.  I used my Water Painters and some watercolor paper to make my background.  Before you add ink to your watercolor paper make sure you use a clean brush and prime the paper with water.  This step may not sound like much but it will help your ink move.  To add the ink I inked up an empty block and picked up the color with my Water Painter.  I started on the top and worked my way down.  Every time I picked up more ink I started on the top.  This way the top stays the darkest and the color gets lighter as it goes down the paper.  Love this ombre look!  Once it was dry I used my Tahitian Tide Stampin' Blends and splattered some ink onto the background.   

stampin up, wonderful world

For my image I used the Wonderful World Set, this is a Sale-a-Bration item you can only earn free with a qualifying $100 order.  I stamped my image in Pacific Point Ink.  Because I'm stamping onto watercolor paper which is very textured I used my Stamparatus and had to stamp it 2 or 3 times to get a full complete image.  This is again another extra step but the results speak for themselves.  I added a greeting with the Artistically Inked Set and layered it all up onto a Tahitian Tide card base with some Metallic Mesh Ribbon and Tahitian Tide Twine.  I finshed the card with some clear Elegant Gems.  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for these products in my Online Store.

Sale-a-Bration Sunday-Amazing Phrasing Fun Fold Card-VIDEO

Today's Sale-a-Bration Sunday is one of my favorite sets!  We're using the Amazing Phrasing Set.  I love a good word set and I especially love a good word set with different fonts and sets that you can build and customize greetings.  With these type of word sets there are endless possibilities for what you can say on/in your card.  They're my favorite type of word sets so when I saw this one in the Sale-a-Bration Catalog I was so excited!  

stampin up, amazing phrasing, hand penned petals

This set can be earned free during Sale-a-Bration with a $100 qualifying order.  Because this is a word only set there are no images in the set.  Can you make a set with only words-ABSOLUTELY!  Can you pair it with other sets and images-ABSOLUTELY!  Today I'm pairing up the Amazing Phrasing Set with the Hand Penned Petals Set.  This is one of my favorite floral sets.  

stampin up, amazing phrasing, hand penned petals

I have a super fun fancy fold for you today.  This one is easy to make and can easily be used with so many different stamp sets!  I received a card with a similar fun fold years and years ago from a swap at a Stampin' Up! event.  It's always been one of my favorite fun folds and I've copied it over and over again throughout the years.  

stampin up, amazing phrasing, hand penned petals

This fun fold is easy to modify to fit your stamps too, my measurements are below but you can modify them if you have larger/smaller stamps.  I started with the card base from the Tea Boutique Cards and Envelopes.  If you start with a pre-done card base simply trim off 1 1/4" from the front and back of the card base.  If you're just using cardstock you'll start with a card base that is 6" x 5 1/2".  Either will work.  

Card Base 6" x 5 1/2" score long side at 3"
Top Card 3" x 8 1/2" score long side at 4 1/4"
Cardstock layers
Outside 4" x 2 3/4"
Inside 3" x 2 1/2"
Basic White layers
Outside 3 3/4" x 2 1/2"
Inside 2 3/4" x 2 1/4"

stampin up, amazing phrasing, hand penned petals

For my block letter greetings I fussy cut them out.  If you don't like fussy cutting that's ok!  Modify your card design so you can stamp it directly onto your white piece.  I love fussy cutting the letters because you can fussy cut individual letters and spell all new words, further expanding the value of the set.  I love doing this!  Check out my 'yay' below.  I stamped the 'hey' greeting twice for two y's and the 'amazing' greeting for one of the a's.  

stampin up, amazing phrasing, hand penned petals

You can easily see with a change up of a few of the greetings the same card can be modified from an encouragement card to a birthday card!  I have all the details in my video plus a third version of this card not pictured on my blog.  Make sure you subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you never miss a video.  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for these products in my Online Store.
