Birthday shaker card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the new Amazing Life Bundle from the 2019 Occasions Catalog! What’s amazing about this bundle?? The Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies of course! lol But seriously, these dies make making a “shaker card” an absolute breeze! With the layering circle, square, and oval dies, you had to line up two of the dies (and hope and pray they don’t move) in order to complete the “frame”. Now with the rectangle dies, they do it in one easy step!

The dies feature stitching on the inside and outside of the frame, so when you are done, you have two pieces that feature the stitching! As you can see, there are 13 dies and they layer together beautifully. The possibilities with this set are enormous!

To create today’s card, start with a card base in So Saffron cardstock,
4 ¼” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

The base layer is Soft Sea Foam cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ½” and is embossed with the Subtle Dynamic TIEF, which I inked up first with Soft Sea Foam ink:

The next layer is this design from the Garden Impressions 6″ x 6″ DSP, cut at 4 ½” x 3″:

To create the frame for the shaker card, I cut a piece of Powder Pink cardstock, cut at 2 ¼”  x 3 5/8″, and I used the 3rd smallest rectangle die to cut out the middle:

For the rest of the card, you will need a piece of Window sheet and Whisper White cardstock (cut at 2 ¼” x 3 5/8″), the sentiment from Amazing Life stamp set stamped in Powder Pink ink, Iridescent Sequins, and 2 small and 2 large balloons cut out of Champagne Foil sheet with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, tying Whisper White Bakers Twine around the bottom of the balloon:

To create the shaker part of the card, I first glued the window sheet to the frame using the Fine Tip Glue Pen. I also glued a couple of the sequins to the stamped cardstock with the Fine Tip Glue Pen and the Take Your Pick tool:

I used the Foam Adhesive Strips around the edge of the frame and then placed some of the sequins in the middle:

I removed the backing off the foam strips and placed the stamped cardstock image on top:

To assemble the front of the card, I adhered the base layer to the card base and then adhered the the DSP on top at a slight angle:

The shaker piece is then adhered on top, I recommend a strong adhesive:

I then adhered two of the balloons to the front, one to the frame and the other with a dimensional:

For the inside sentiment, use a piece of 4” x 5 ½” piece of Whisper White cardstock, the cake is stamped in Soft Sea Foam ink, the sentiment is in Powder Pink ink, and the bottom image is stamped in So Saffron ink. I adhered the two remaining balloons to the side:

Wasn’t that way easier to make than before? If you have never made a shaker card before because you found it just too difficult, give these dies a try! Just simply cut a piece of cardstock, that is going to be the frame, slightly larger so you have enough room for the foam strips. Wondering how I got the baker’s twine so curly? I simply used my bone folder, just like you would so for curling ribbon with a pair of scissors!

Mmmm….cake!!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which features the new Amazing Life stamp set from the 2019 Occasions Catalog! This stamp set is actually part of a bundle, which includes the Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies!! What?? Rectangle dies?? They feature stitching on the inside and outside the frame, so you can use either size! I won’t be using these today, however, but will share with you a quick and easy card using the stamp set.

To start, use Bermuda Bay cardstock for the card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2fcf

The base layer is Pool Party cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and is embossed with the Striped Scallops TIEF:

fullsizeoutput_2fd2

For the card front, you will use the Balloon Bouquet Punch on a piece of Champagne Foil Sheet, use Whisper White Baker’s Twine to tie around the end, on a piece of Whisper White cardstock, you will stamp the background stamp from Artisan Textures stamp set in Pool Party ink, stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink, and the cut out using the largest scalloped square from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies:

fullsizeoutput_2fd5

I first adhered the balloons directly to the card base and then adhered the sentiment with dimensionals. I felt this needed a little something else added, so I opted for the Glitter Enamel Dots in Coastal Cabana:

fullsizeoutput_2fd8fullsizeoutput_2fdb

The inside sentiment is on a piece of 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Bermuda Bay ink, and I used a Blender Pen with Pool Party ink to color in the cake. The best part about this inside sentiment is that I was able to use my Stamparatus to position the stamps and stamp them all at the same time!

fullsizeoutput_2fde

Wasn’t that quick and easy?? I chose to use the scalloped square and the Striped Scallops TIEF for this card because I thought the combination of the two tied well together. I also chose Bermuda Bay and Pool Party for the color combo because I haven’t created with these colors in so long and wanted some fun colors for this card! I hope you like it!!

New Years Blog Hop!

fullsizeoutput_2f15

Hello and welcome to the Stamp It Group’s New Year’s Theme Blog Hop! My name is Christina Miller, I’m an independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia, and you are visiting my blog, Christina’s Creative Corner! Whether this is your first stop on the blog hop or you have hopped on over from another site, thank you for letting me share my creation today! So, let’s get started!

While we send or give out cards for Christmas, what about New Year’s? Whether you are attending a New Year’s get-together, hosting a get-together, or maybe have other needs for a New Year’s card, what better way than to make one with shine and bling?

To start, use Thick Whisper White cardstock for your card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2f00

You will need two pieces of Basic Black cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, one for the card front base layer and the other for the inside base layer:

fullsizeoutput_2f03

From the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series, you will use this design, cut at 3 ¾” x 5”:

fullsizeoutput_2f06

For the front of the card, you will use the celebrate from the Celebrate You Thinlits to cut out one piece in Gold Glimmer Paper and another piece in Basic Black cardstock (you can use either of the base layers for this). The two balloons are punched out using the Balloon Bouquet Punch (smaller balloon) in Basic Black and Gold Foil Paper. I used the balloon fill-in stamp from Happy Birthday Gorgeous to heat emboss Black Emboss Powder on the gold balloon and Gold Emboss Powder on the black balloon. The gold balloon is tied off with Basic Black Baker’s Twine and the black balloon is tied off with Whisper White Baker’s Twine. I used the pennant from the Playful Pennants Framelits Dies in Basic Black cardstock and used the numbers from the Pick A Pennant stamp set, which are heat embossed in Gold Emboss Powder (I created a template for my Stamparatus to make stamping easier). The tassels from the framelits, which are cut out in Gold Foil Paper:

fullsizeoutput_2f09fullsizeoutput_2efd

To assemble the front of the card, adhere the two base layers to the card base, use your Fine Tip Glue Pen to layer the Basic Black celebrate to the back of the Gold Glimmer celebrate, and then adhere to the DSP.  I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the tassels to the pennant, trimming the ends, and then used Mini Dimensionals to adhere to the DSP. The balloons are then adhered with Dimensionals:

fullsizeoutput_2f0c

For the inside sentiment, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 3 ¾” x 5”, the sentiment from the Warm Hearted stamp set is stamped in Memento ink, and the accent stamps from the set are heat embossed in Gold Emboss Powder. This piece is adhered to the other piece of Basic Black cardstock and then adhered to the card base:

fullsizeoutput_2f0f

What do you think?? Isn’t this a pretty easy card to make? Another great use for a New Year’s card, is that if you hand out cards to the service professionals in your life and maybe you aren’t going to see someone until after Christmas, well here you go! This would also come in handy if you need a non-traditional holiday card!

Fun and easy Birthday card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy birthday card made with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and the Celebrate You Thinlits Dies. In case you have overlooked the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set, it also coordinates with the Balloon Bouquet Punch, the Classic Label Punch, and the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies! Having so many options with a stamp set makes it super easy to create with!

Before I created this card, I first started with the Brights 6” x 6” DSP, decided to use the Melon Mambo striped paper, chose my color combination, and went from there!

You will start with a card base in Smoky Slate cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

fullsizeoutput_2caa

The base layer is Powder Pink cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Striped Scallops TIEF:

fullsizeoutput_2cad

For the front of the card, you will first cut 1 ½” piece from the 6” x 6” DSP (it will be 1 ½” x 6”) and then cut the remaining 4 ½” x 6 at 3”, so you will then have to pieces measuring 3” x 4 ½”. You will use a piece of Silver Foil Sheet and Smokey Slate cardstock for the Celebrate Thinlit and use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere the two pieces together, sliding it slightly so the Smokey Slate cardstock is showing underneath. For the balloons, I used the balloon stamp from the set to stamp in Smokey Slate and Powder Pink inks on a piece of Whisper White cardstock and punched out. The bigger balloon is punched out of a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock. The sentiment is stamped in Smokey Slate and Melon Mambo inks on Whisper White cardstock and then punched out with the Classic Label Punch. For the balloon ribbon, I used some Silver and Whisper White Baker’s Twine that I tied in a knot:

fullsizeoutput_2cb0

To assemble the front, I adhered the DSP to the embossed base layer and then adhered to the card base. I cut Mini Dimensionals in half to adhere the Celebrate on the DSP and then used Dimensionals for the balloons and sentiments:

fullsizeoutput_2cb3

The inside sentiment is stamped in Smoky Slate ink and the flowers are stamped in Powder Pink, Melon Mambo, and Granny Apple Green inks. I cut the 1 ½” piece of DSP in half (¾” x 6”), adhered along the bottom, and then trimmed the excess off:

fullsizeoutput_2cb6

Wasn’t that fun and easy?? I just love it when a seemingly “complicated” card is easy to make and with these instructions you can make two cards at once!

Birthday Card in a Box!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a special Birthday Card in a Box that I made for my younger son’s birthday! He only had two requests for his birthday: 1) I make him a super cool card and 2) send him some baked goodies (he is currently stationed in Hawaii). I thought making him a Card in a Box would be perfect! I’ve made these in the past, however, I always struggled with the inside of the box and adhering the pieces straight and I thought someone out there in the crafting universe had to have come up with a template for the inside that is one piece and not 3. So off to Pinterest I went searching and luckily did not have to go far, thanks to Deb Valder (stampladee.com) who created a super easy template that I CASE’d and are sharing with you today!

The box base for this card is Basic Black cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and you will score at 2 ¾” on the 5 ½” side of the cardstock. Turn the cardstock to the 8 ½” side and at 2”, 4”, 6”, and 8” you will use your Stampin’ Trimmer to score to the middle score line and then cut the rest of the way down. This will give you a ½” piece which you will create the flap for the card, trimming part of the cardstock off:

fullsizeoutput_2574

The insert for the box is a piece of Basic Black cardstock, cut at 2 ¾” x 8” and scored at ½”, 2 ½”, 3”, 5”, 5 ½”, and 7 ½” (I used my Simply Scored Scoring Tool). You will then fold the cardstock into a “Z”:

fullsizeoutput_256afullsizeoutput_2577

For your layering pieces, you are going to need one piece for the back of the box (sentiment) cut at 1 7/8” x 5 3/8” and if you are going to have a two piece layer, then the second piece is 1 ¾” x 5 ¼”. For the small panels, you will need 10 pieces of each: cardstock 1 7/8” x 2 5/8” and DSP 1 ¾” x 2 ½” for all 10 panels:

fullsizeoutput_257afullsizeoutput_257d

For the balloons, I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch to cut out Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, Basic Black cardstock, Gold Foil Sheet, and Gold Glimmer Paper, punching each color twice. I used Black and Whisper White Baker’s Twine for the balloon string, tying it around the front of the balloon and then securing it to the back with a glue dot, a ¾” piece of Window Sheet is adhered with a glue dot and then the second balloon piece is also adhered with glue dots. This will give you 4 large and 4 small balloons for the box:

The numbers are cut out of Gold Glimmer Paper using the Large Numbers Framelits (retired) and the spirals I created from Gold Foil, Gold Glimmer, and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock with the 1 ¾” punch, cutting around (like a spiral) with scissors:

fullsizeoutput_258c

I used Tear & Tape Adhesive for the inside card flap (you want to use a strong adhesive for this) and then folded over to make the box:

fullsizeoutput_258ffullsizeoutput_2592

I then adhered all of the panels to the box:

For the insert you will need to use strong adhesive on the “mountain” part of the cardstock on each side (I ran out of Tear & Tape and used Sticky Strip-yes, I still have some left! Lol). Put the insert into the middle, with the ½” ends towards a front and back corner, and then “fold” the box over so the two middle pieces will adhere and will fold over when you put it in an envelope:

fullsizeoutput_25a1

fullsizeoutput_25a4

For the decorating part, I used glue dots secure the balloons, stars (retired punch), and spirals. I punched out some more stars, adhered those to the inside flaps, and the sentiment from the Number of Years stamp set (retired) is heat embossed in Gold Embossing Powder on Whisper White cardstock:

fullsizeoutput_25a8

I do apologize for using some retired items that you may not have, however, since I used the Broadway Bound Specialty Paper for this, you could substitute other items from the Broadway Bound Suite!

I hope you enjoyed this card in a box tutorial as much as I know my son will enjoy receiving it!!

Broadway Bound One Sheet Wonder-Part 3

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are another “one sheet wonder” from a 12” x 12” Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper! If you’ve been following along, the previous two posts feature cards made from layouts on Pinterest, but today I made my own layout. I tried looking for something that had a combination of vertical and horizontal cuts, along with not very many little cuts, but didn’t find one that I liked, so I figured I would give it a try! It really wasn’t that difficult and I was able to make 8 cards out it!

Below is a picture of the sheet of DSP that I used and the template that I made. Wondering what the template is? Would you believe that it is the cardboard that is from the Foil Sheets?! These are slightly bigger than 12” x 12”, so I mark the cardboard when making the measurements. This can also be cut down to make smaller templates!

Broadway Bound One Sheet Wonder-Part 2

Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are another “one sheet wonder” from a 12” x 12” Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper! On Monday I shared one template that made 7 cards from a single sheet of DSP and today I am sharing another template that I was able to make 8 cards and 1 invitation! I chose this particular design of paper because I wanted to see what other colors that I could use to make these, aside from the coordinating Lemon Lime Twist and Lovely Lipstick.

Today’s template is courtesy of Elizabeth Jeanne Thatcher that I found on Pinterest! Below is the DSP and the template for cutting:

fullsizeoutput_2332fullsizeoutput_2335

I wanted to make a template that I could easily refer back to and not try to remember where I found it at. Below is a picture of each card I made, inside and out, with a brief description:

The card base is Flirty Flamingo cardstock, 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”

I used the Celebrate Thinlit Die to cut out once on Champagne Foil and twice on Whisper White Cardstock, glued layers together, and then adhered with mini dimensionals

fullsizeoutput_233efullsizeoutput_2341

This is an invitation, the base is Blueberry Bushel cardstock, 4 ¼” x 5 ¾”

The “invitation” is on a 3 ½” x 4 ¾” piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamped in Blueberry Bushel ink with the Balloon Celebrations and Pick a Pennant stamp sets

I punched out two of the larger balloons in Gold Foil with the Balloon Banquet Punch, heat embossed in Black Embossing Powder on one balloon “Birthday” and “Party” from the Tabs for Everything Stamp set, and then then adhered the balloons to the cardstock to create a tab pull for the cardstock

The front sentiment is using the Pick a Pennant stamp set, the Playful Pennants Framelits Dies, and heat embossed Gold Embossing Powder

I layered the 1 ¾” x 4” DSP on a piece of 2” x 4” Gold Foil

I used the last two pieces of DSP and punched them with the Banner Triple Punch

The sentiment is from Picture Perfect Birthday on Whisper White cardstock in Petal Pink and Gorgeous Grape inks, punched out with the 1 ½” Circle Punch, and layered on Gold Foil punched out with the 1 ¾” Circle Punch

Gold Faceted Gems are used to accent the front

The inside sentiment is stamped in Gorgeous Grape and Petal Pink inks

WHEW!! I didn’t realize until I was completely done that I had made so many from ONE sheet of DSP!! So, I have made a total of 15 cards and 1 invitation from TWO sheets of DSP so far and I will be sharing another version in my next post! Stay Tuned!!
