PCCCS 115: Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set

Welcome back for the Wednesday posting of the latest Paper Craft Crew Challenge!  I've go another fun card for you featuring the Stampin' Up! Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set.   We invite you to come play along as this challenge starts today and ends on Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 11:55 PM EST.

 

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 115

 

Kinda Eclectic Thank You

This weeks sketch with the Paper Craft Crew features a design I use often for scrapbooking but just sized down for a square shaped card!  My card this week deviates from a holiday themed card as I opted to use the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set along with Blackberry Bliss and Hellow Honey color scheme.  The card really did turn out gorgeous and I just love the richness of the colors together.

The card base is Whisper White Cardstock with a layer of Blackberry Bliss then another top layer of Whisper White and the Park Lane Designer Series Paper.  In the upper righthand corner of the Whisper White I used the Gorgeous Grunge stamp set to stamp the background with the Hello Honey Classic Ink.  Following along with the sketch, I added some Hello Honey 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon then I added the rectangles of Whisper White with Blackberry Bliss border which are angled to create a fun focal point.  The top rectangle is stamped with the "sun" image and leaf image from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set.  The butterflies are also from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set with the larger butterfly stamped with the Blackberry Bliss Classic ink and for the smaller butterfly I used the Hello Honey Classic Ink.  To "lighten" the color I used a technique called "Stamping Off."  Finally, I assembled the card based on the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch.

 

Sunny Girl Scraps Tips & Tricks:

  • A great way to create a stamped image that is lighter but coordinates with your card is to use the "Stamping Off" technique.  You ink your stamp then lightly stamp off some of the ink before stamping your image.
  • Create interest by adding elements such as multiple butterflies of different sizes
  • Stampin' Dimensionals are your best friend and great for adding depth to your cards.
  • Think outside the box when you see a sketch… Sometimes a great Scrapbooking Sketch can be used as inspiration for a card!
  • Missing something on your card or does your card feel incomplete? Originally, my card only had one large butterfly and one small butterfly but at the very end, I added the 2nd large butterfly in the top left corner.  It helped "balance" the card especially with the sentiment and other large butterfly otherwise the card felt "bottom heavy" with all the elements in the bottom left corner.

Here is the sketch for this weeks Paper Craft Crew challenge.  To see additional samples, visit the Paper Craft Crew Blog and check out the samples created by the other members of the Design Team.  Now, why not join us and create a card based off of this weeks card sketch and post it to the blog!

Paper Craft Crew Card Challenge 114 – Festival of Trees

Guess what! It is time for another challenge with the Paper Craft Crew.  We invite you to come play along as this challenge starts today and ends on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at 11:55 PM EST. 

 

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 114

 

Festival of Trees

 

This weeks sketch with the Paper Craft Crew is lots of fun featuring a "window" or polaroid type feature!  This weeks card features the Festival of Trees, Tree Punch and Star Framelits.  The card also uses the Work of Art stamp set to create a background.  With this card, I've created more of a traditional Christmas scene use traditional Christmas colors.

Sunny Girl Scraps Tips & Tricks:

  • To create the background, I used the Work of Art stamp set using Soft Sky Classic Ink then I used the Festival of Trees stamp set to stamp the "stars" using the Silver Encore Stamp Pad.  I love this look and how this sets the scene for an outdoorsy feel to the card.  
  • The three larger stars were created using the Star Framelit.  To create the largest star with the center cut out, I just took the two star framelits that were closest in size and placed the smallest framelit on the inside to create the star outline.
  • For a little added interest, I used the Gold Foil paper for three of the stars then the Gold Glimmer cardstock for the star that anchors the Merry & Bright sentiment.  This sentiment comes from the Good Greetings Stamp Set which is currently FREE to hostesses that either purchase $300.00 or more in product or have a workshop that is over $300.  This special is available until October 28th – so, if you want the Good Greetings stamp set you need to order $300.00 in product yourself or get together with a few friends!

Here is the sketch for this weeks Paper Craft Crew challenge.  To see additional samples, visit the Paper Craft Crew Blog and check out the samples created by the other members of the Design Team.  Now, why not join us and create a card based off of this weeks card sketch and post it to the blog!

Pinworthy Blog Tour

 

Mingle All The Way with this Years Winter Holidays

 

I'm so excited to be sharing some fun projects featuring product from the 2014 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. There are two projects that I'll be sharing with you today as I feature a card and a coordinating gift box with a tag.  The card I created features the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper along with the Mingle All The Way Stamp Set.  The coordinating Gift Box and Tag also feature the All Is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper and Mingle All The Way Stamp Set. 

 

Project #1 – Mingle All The Way Card

 

Mingle All The Way Card created by Pam Staples for the RemARKables Pinworthy Blog Tour.

This Mingle All The Way card continues my current crafting theme of using Soft Sky, Lost Lagoon and Basic Gray along with the All Is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I just LOVE Christmas Cards that have silver and blue on them.  When I look at this card, I think about the holidays and the cool days of Winter.  

The card base on this card is Soft Sky layered with Basic Gray and Whisper White.  On the Whisper White layer, I stamped a background using Gorgeous Grunge and Lost Lagoon Classic Ink.  Then I created a layered accent using the All Is Calm Specialty DSP featuring the Silver Foil design with a layer of Soft Sky and a Tea Doily layered behind.  The Mingle All the Way is stamped with the Lost Lagoon Classic Ink and punched out using the 2" Circle punch then the layer is Lost Lagoon Cardstock cut out with the Circle Framelits then attached to the card front overlapping the Stamped background and Tea Doily.  Next, I added a little Lost Lagoon banner in the upper righthand corner with a Soft Sky star attached.  In the bottom lefthand corner, I added three stars as a counter-balance to the star placed on the Banner.  The final touch was adding the Silver Sequins which I randomly placed on the card front keeping in mind that I wanted to "connect" the Banner with the elements in the bottom lefthand corner.

I just LOVE how this card came together with the elements of Silver, Basic Gray and the two shades of BLUE!  A totally "cool" card perfect for the Winter Holidays!

Project #2 – All Is Calm Box & Tag

 

Handmade Gift Box and Tag created by Pam Staples featuring the Box Punch Board

I just love this second project that I'm sharing today featuring the All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper and the Mingle All The Way Stamp Set.  Confession time… I'm totally in love with the All Is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper (as if you couldn't guess that already)!  For the Box, I used the Box Punch Board and created a 4" x 4" x 2 1/2" box. The Box Punch Board makes it SO easy to create AWESOME and Adhesive FREE Boxes!  

On the tag, I've selected Lost Lagoon and Soft Sky as the primary colors with a touch of Silver from the Rhinestones.  The tag base is Lost Lagoon and to create the tag, I used the Scallop Tag Punch then layered a Tea Doily on the front of the tag.  The next layer features the Deco Label which is cut from Soft Sky then the Mingle All the Way stamped image punched out with the 2" Circle Punch is layered onto the Deco Label.  To complete the Tag, I added two snowflakes.  The Snowflakes are Whisper White and Lost Lagoon which were created using the Snowflake Card Thinlits Dies.  The Whisper White Snowflake was placed under the Deco Label and the smaller snowflake is placed on top of the Deco Label.  The rhinestones were placed last to add that touch of sparkle.

PCCCS 113 – Mingle All The Way

Guess what! It is time for another challenge with the Paper Craft Crew.  We invite you to come play along as this challenge starts today and ends on Tuesday, October 14, 2014 at 11:55 PM EST.

 

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 113

 

Mingle All The Way

 

This weeks sketch with the Paper Craft Crew is lots of fun and a fairly quick sketch to work with!  The card that I created features the Mingle All the Way Stamp Set, Star Framelits

and All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I have to admit that I just love Christmas Cards that consist of a blue and silver color scheme.  

Sunny Girl Scraps Tips & Tricks:

 
  • Layer complementing blues to create subtle contrast.  On this card, I started with a Card Base of Lost Lagoon with a top layer of Soft Sky then the All Is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper.  For additional contrast and to highlight the silver background, I pulled in the Basic Gray as a layer to the stamped image.
  • Create interest by adding elements such as multiple stars of different sizes, snowflakes and sequins.  Based on the sketch, I added the stars featuring two different sizes of the Star Framelits which are cut out from Soft Sky cardstock and layered on the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • I added additional accents by randomly adding the sequins from the Frosted Sequins embellishments.

Here is the sketch for this weeks Paper Craft Crew challenge.  To see additional samples, visit the Paper Craft Crew Blog and check out the samples created by the other members of the Design Team.  Now, why not join us and create a card based off of this weeks card sketch and post it to the blog!

Pinworthy Blog Tour

 

Scary Fun

I'm so excited to be sharing some fun projects.  I had to get creative with this challenge because the one stamp set I REALLY wanted to use STILL has not arrived at my home and is stuck somewhere between North Carolina and Utah through the Mail Innovations.  OK, so with the knowledge that the one stamp set was NOT going to arrive before this post I decided to focus on the Halloween Themed Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper for the handmade card I created and the cute box features the one stamp set I have received called Merry Everything that just happens to have one Halloween themed stamp.  Well, I hope you enjoy the projects I have for you this month and on that note…  Here we go!

 

Project #1 – Good To the Last Bite Box

 

The Box is created using the Gift Box Punch Board and is 3.25" x 3.25" x 1.75" so it is a decent sized box!  Then I created a belly band using the Back to Black Designer Series Paper.  The tag features the Merry Everything Stamp Set and is punched our using the Note Tag Punch which coordinates with the stamp set.  To attach the tag, I used Linen Thread wrapped around the belly band a few times then tied a bow and added the Basic Black Chevron Ribbon for additional contrast.  This really is a fun, quick and easy project.

Project #1 Supply List:

Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black (132708)

Cardstock:  Whisper White (100730), Tangerine Tango (111349)

Designer Series Paper:  Back to Black (133700)

Accessories:  Linen Thread (104199); 3/4" Basic Black Chevron Ribbon (130010)

Tools: Gift Box Punch Board (135863); Note Tag Punch (135860); 1/16" Circle Handheld Punch (134363)

Stamp Sets:  Merry Everything (w: 135068; c: 135071)

 

Project #2 – Boo Ghoulish Greetings

 

This is such a fun card and a great way to feature Designer Series Paper especially when you don't have the Stamp Set you were HOPING and PLANNING to use!  I just have to say… I really do love this adorable card!

For this card, I used the Motley Monsters Designer Series Paper as the focal point then using the Little Letters I cut out the "BOO" then placed a background behind the Motley Monsters for some nice contrast.  To quickly finish off the card, I add the tag which uses the Ghoulish Greetings Stamp Set topped off with a button and Tangerine Tango Baker's Twine.

It's totally amazing how you can create such a cute, Ghoulish card even when you don' have the stamp set you originally wanted!

Project #2 Supply List:

Ink:  Tangerine Tango (126946)

Cardstock:  Whisper White (100730); Tangerine Tango  (111349)

Designer Series Paper:  Motley Monsters DSP (135819)

Accessories:  Designer Buttons – Brights (130028); Tangerine Tango Baker's Twine (134578)

Paper Craft Crew #109 – Ray of Sunshine

It's a NEW Week with the Paper Craft Crew and we have another fun card sketch.  I had lots of fun with this weeks Card Sketch with lots of details.   We invite you to come play along as this challenge starts today and ends on Tuesday, September 16 at 11:55 PM EST.

 

Paper Craft Crew #109

 

A Ray of Sunshine

 

If you haven't guessed, I love all things related to the "sun" and "sunshine" thus my nickname!  When I was going through my Thyroid Cancer treatment, scrapbooking and stamping was one of the things I really enjoyed doing to keep me focused on anything but the Cancer.  Many of my friends gave me the nickname "Sunny" because of my disposition.  This card is really a reflection of me.  

I love how the Gold paper shimmers and gives off some light and the "postage stamp" is just my 2 cents on how I feel.  Of course, I needed to make this card because of all the rain we had Monday and I was ready for some sun!

 

Here is this weeks Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch #109!  I hope you come and play along.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch

 

Flower Patch Stamp Set

 

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 106 by Pam Staples #papercraftcrew #stampinup #pamstaples #sunnygirlscraps

I really love the way this card turned out!  The card sketch for this weeks challenge is lots of fun and a great way to feature Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper or a great stamp set.  The Paper Craft Crew Design Team has some really great and diverse samples this week.  Hey… Did you know that when you join my Stampin' Up! Team you are automatically welcome to JOIN the Paper Craft Crew Design Team (although you must ASK to join).  

SunnyGirlScraps Tips & Tricks:

  • The angled background features the Gold Soiree SPECIALTY Designer Series Paper.  I really felt that this card sketch is perfect for highlighting the Designer Series Paper.
  • The Gold Soiree SPECIALTY Designer Series Paper Features a Metallic Gold Ink!  I absolutely LOVE the feel of this Specialty Designer Series Paper.
  • When stamping with the Flower Patch Stamp Set, place a piercing mat under the paper you are stamping on for a crisp, clean image.
  • Use the coordinating Flower Fair Framelits to cut out your flower image and then layer the designs for flowers with dimension.
  • The Flower Patch and Flower Fair Framlits can CURRENTLY be purchased as a bundle meaning you save 15% on the two products.  ALSO… Now is a GREAT time to buy a Big Shot with the Stampin' Up! Big Shot Promotion.
  • Use the 1" Square Punch for a quick, easy banner!
  • The Background is created using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with Smoky Slate.
  • Consider creating a SQUARE card – yes, they are more expensive to mail – BUT, they are fun to make.
  • Don't forget to add the finishing touches to your card!  On my card, I used the Candy Dots to add a little accent in the upper left corner then one Candy Dot in the center of my card.

Project #2 – Teacher Treat Fry Box 

 

School Days Fry Box celebrating New Beginnings with the RemARKables created by Pam Staples, Sunnygirlscraps

How great would it be to have your son or daughter bring in a treat for their new teacher and telling them that "You Make the World a better Place?"  Can we say "Teacher's Pet?"   Well, it can at least help the New School year get started on the right foot.  The Fry Box is created using the Fry Box Bigz Die with Crisp Cantaloupe Card Stock.  The stamped image is from the Starburst Sayings Stamp Set using the Tangerine Tango Classic Ink and cut out using the coordinating Framelit.  To add a little extra detail but still keeping it simple, I tied the Baked Brown Sugar Thick Baker's Twine around the Fry Box.  This is a QUICK, fun and great Teacher Gift for the new school year.  Now… I would normally use a Cello Bag filled with treats and tied with a cute bow but since I'm traveling I didn't bring those items with me so no treats to share at this time but here is a lake photo of Me holding my Son, Caleb, driving Grandpa's Pontoon boat for you to enjoy…
