I am at #TelfordOnStage2019

Hi everyone and I hope you are enjoying your Saturday so far – if you are reading this then you will see that I am actually in Telford this weekend at OnStage2019 which is a Stampin’ Up! Local Event for Demonstrators.

I will get to see the new 2019 – 20 catalogue which is due out on June 3rd, preview new products and take part in project makes with the new products whilst finally meeting all of my new team mates from #teamscrimpy and one from my own team #teamsmithy.

I thought I’d prepare in advance and do a quick blog and video to show you what swaps I have made for my colleagues. It is traditional at OnStage to swap a handmade item with other demonstrators as long as it’s Stampin’ Up! and as long as its a current catalogue item.

And here they are:

#MakeitMonday Episode 6 – Yankee Candle Carton Box

Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to #MakeitMonday. In this episode, episode 6, I am making a super cute yankee candle holder in the form of a carton style box made from a piece of 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″ DSP.

I have used the Petal Promonade DSP as it is such a gorgeous paper with lots of beautiful printed images in the pack.  I stamped the sentiment Thank you for caring from the label me pretty stamp set.

PhotoCollage_1554293559328[1].jpg

 

Isn’t this just a beautiful elegant DSP?

 

Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper

 

Instructions:

  1. Start with a piece of paper measuring 7 ½“ x 7 ½ “ (Metric 19cm x 19cm)
  2. Score at 1 ¾”, 3 ½”, 5 ¼” and 7” (Metric = 4 ½ cm, 9cm, 13 ½ cm, 18cm)
  3. Turn and score at 1 ¾” and 6 ½” (Metric 4 ½ cm and16 ½ cm)
  4. Burnish the four first score lines, turn over and burnish the score line closest to the edge over the opposite way because that is the top of the box
  5. Cut out the longest skinny rectangle completely then cut up the remaining score lines x3
  6. Fold over and stick the top part over, reinforce score lines if required.
  7. Run adhesive down the smallest side tab (same section than you cut rectangle from).
  8. Fold and adhere the bottom of the box.
  9. Insert Yankee or other candle and push top together like a milk carton.
  10. Punch a hole and feed through a piece of ribbon or use a clip to secure.

#SimpleStamping Episode 6 – Masking Technique Motivation Card

Welcome to Episode 6 of #SimpleStamping with smithscraftycreations.com

Today I have incorporated a little masking type technique using a post it note as the masked layer.  I used basic grey as the card base and whisper white as the stamping layer.  The ink colours I used were basic grey and mango melody – my two all time favourites just now.

How pretty is this card?!

PhotoCollage_1554445569570

 

Isn’t this just a beautiful end outcome:

 

IMG_20190405_072812.jpg

Look at the detail achieved using a very simple process

Instructions:

  1. Start with a piece of grey card stock measuring 8 2/8″ x 4 1/8″ and with longest side to the top, score at 4 1/8″
  2. Cut a piece of whisper white cardstock down to 4″ x 4″ for your stamping layer
  3. Cut a post it note down to 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ and place centrally on your whisper white
  4. Randomly (or mirror image type) stamp your images around the card using either two different colours or one colour but stamp off on scrap paper first to obtain a lighter shade.
  5. Remove Post-it note and stamp sentiment of choice in the centre. I used the lovely label me pretty set.
  6. Adhere stamped layer to card base and  that is it done – as simple as that!
