A recap on how this monthly class works…

So this is my new latest idea (I’m not the first to do this and won’t be the last) as a relatively new Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator! – A Monthly Card Making Lesson by Post! I would love to help you with your card making journey, and for you to share my Stampin’Up! journey too!

  2. If the class interests you, you will be required to book via email to smithscraftycreations@gmail.com
  3. Payment is required by the 15th of the month (payment via paypal only) and details of how to pay will be sent in a confirmation email once you have booked.
  4. You will be sent your pack which includes all products required (consumables only – not stamps, these would be additional cost) within 5 working days of payment being made.
  5. A private YouTube tutorial* will be sent to you via email on how to make the project as soon as payment is made.

Stampin’Up! Tutorial – Gorgeous Petal Promenade themed gift – Intermediate Level Crafting

Well this is a super cute project make is it not? How sweet – a lovely 5 x 2″ cellophane bag made to look very pretty holding these cute pencils, and decorated with the lovely lovely Petal Promenade Suite Designer Series Paper and co-ordinating Cardstock and ink.

photocollage_20181120225956718.jpg

  • Place your pencils into the cellophane bag
  • Cut your A4 cardstock (from shorter edge) to 1 7/8″ x 7 13/16″ and place in bag behind your pencils
  • Cut a piece of DSP (use scraps if you can) to 1 1/2″ x 4″ and punch (centrally) using the triple banner punch and adhere to bottom of bag with glue dots (so’s not to cover the sentiments on your pencils)
  • Using the same colour of cardstock, and the co-ordinating ink,  stamp a sentiment of your choice, size enough that you can punch it out with the 1 3/4″ circle punch
  • Dab edges of punched sentiment with the co-ordinating ink (to remove any plainness)
  • Attach sentiment circle to banner section (leave enough gap at top for your ribbon) using dimensionals

#SimpleStamping, Stampin' Up!, Tutorial

#SimpleStamping Card Tutorial for new, intermediate and advanced styles of crafting

#SimpleStamping Card Tutorial for the new, intermediate and advanced styles of crafters using the very pretty and lush Petal Promenade Suite. This blog is geared towards the more basic crafter or new crafters with the more advanced options in brackets :).  All materials used today as well as any tools required to help make your crafting journey easier will be highlighted throughout and also detailed below.  All available to purchase online from my Stampin’Up! shop!

Step 1 – Making your card base (All Levels)

20181108_201623.jpg
Using a ruler and scissors cut your A4 Cardstock into two strips measuring 11 1/2″ x 4 1/8″. Fold each strip in half and press down the crease – you now have two blank card bases.  (More experienced crafters would use a Stampin’ Up! Trimmer with built-in scorer.)

Step 2 – Add your first layer to your card (All Levels)

Cut a piece of DSP (Designer Series Paper) to 5 1/2″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere centrally on your card base with wet glue. It would be at this point you would add your stamped sentiment, if you have any, or a preprinted/cut sticker embellishment. (More experienced crafters may use double-sided tape to adhere the first layer or a snail adhesive to make things that little bit quicker – I always use wet glue as its easier to reposition your layered section if placed squint)

Petal_Promenade_Card1 (3)

Intermediate (Casual)

Now the more experienced crafter, before stamping their sentiment, would layer up a piece of DSP onto Cardstock using, for example, the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch and the 2″ Circle Punch. They would then stamp using selected sentiment from their stamp set direct onto the top layer (stamping layer) of the card in the coordinating ink     using a stamping block.

Petal_Promenade_Card1 (2)
Advanced (Avid)

Once you start your crafting journey it won’t be long before you are at this level (this is by no means the most complicated of card but it does contain various elements and extras).  With this card an additional decorative label section has been added. This section was achieved by cutting a 2″ piece of card and chomping off the end with the banner triple punch to make it look so much more professional.

The layered sentiment section has then been added (using dimensional foam pads), this time using white card stock as the stamping layer to give it some additional contrast.

Finally, embellishments of clear epoxy droplets, coordinating thread and ribbon were added to finish the project.

Petal_Promenade_Card1 (1)

So… you don’t need any experience, you only need someone to help you start what will be an amazing crafting journey (we all started somewhere and are still learning along the way!).  Check out my monthly card making club blog to find out how you can make cards like these on a budget 🙂

Happy Crafting!
