Making Stampin’Up! Video Tutorials for CreatingForGrace is one of my favorite things! Stampin’ video basics here we come! Recently I sent out an email to my friends asking about what kinds of things they would like a tutorial on. I received many ideas and am looking forward to doing a video basics series in the near future! I started out slowly. Since then have been trying to create a video for any cards or projects that simply needed more explanation. However, the written directions can only go so far in some cases. Believe me I’ve been stumped many times on how to accurately provide instructions in an easy to understand manner!
Here’s my Stampin’Up! Thanks a bouquet bunch card and video. Other than the framelits this would definitely qualify as a quick and easy card! Very minimal stamping… lol…
Start with a whisper white cardstock base cut at 8.5″ X 5.5″. Score and fold inhalf at 4.25″. The Wild Wasabi layer is cat at 5.25″ X 4″. The top whisper white layer is cut at 5″ x 3.75″. Use the bouquet stem framelit on this layer then attach.
Run two sets of twine and four sets of small flower bunches through the bigshot. Then run four sets of bigger flower bunches through the bigshot. Arrange them on your page and use tombow liquid glue to attach them.
Stamp the sentiment in Garden Green ink and remember to make your envelope pretty!
Stampin’Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial
I made this Stampin’Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial for my 3D swap for Thailand with Stampin’Up! What an amazing experience! Be sure to check out my CreatingForGrace demo FB page for some photos I shared.
I started with the mini treat framelit bag cut in Early Espresso paper and assembled using the Tear & Tape adhesive. This is stronger and holds together 3D items very well. The white cardstock is cut at 2″ x 4″ and stamped using the Timeless Texture stamp set.
Next stamp the cup and lid and use the Coffee Cafe framelits to cut them out. Add the green mini chevron ribbon and attach the stamped white cardstock. Pop up the coffee cup with dimensionals and attach. Use a glue dot and some linen thread to attach the corrugated elements tag.
This Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card was from one of our weekly color challenges. It was quite a mix of colors and the gold just called out for heat embossing! The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was a great way to get my colors in!
Simply start with a Very vanilla thick cardstock cut for an A2 card, finished size 5.5″ x 4.25″. The Old Olive layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″. and the inside very vanilla layer is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″. Emboss the top of the card using the Hexagon emboss folder. The inner Old Olive layer is 3.5″ square. And the inner heat embossed Vanilla layer is 3 3/8″ square.
See the video tutorial below for details on heat embossing, and remember to make your envelope pretty!
Had so much fun making this Stampin’ Up! Cool Treats Waterfall Card. Fun bold summer colors in a waterfall card? Yes please! This technique came up in conversation at our last Stamp Club meeting, and I had requests to teach the technique again. Loving the Cool Treats stamp set for this motion card!
Here is the motion picture:
Start with an A2 card base. Some people only use the card front, but I actually like the full card to write in! However it’s nice to know your options!
The Melon Mambo layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″. And the Lemon Lime Twist strip is cut at 1″ x 4.25″. Next the white pull strip is cut at 2 1/4″ x 9″. Score at 2″, 2.75″, 3.5″, and 4.25″. The Melon Mambo mats are 2.25″ square, and the white stamped layers are 2″ square. See the tutorial below for full assembly.
This Stampin’Up! Label Me Pretty Powder Pink card is a very Clean and Simple card. Quick and easy, and I show an easy way to make sure your pretty ribbon from a double strand knot stays on tops where it shows pretty!
Start with an A2 cardbase in Powder Pink cut at 11″ x 4.25″. Score and fold at 5.5″. The Very Vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ and embossed using the Cable Knit textured impressions embossing folder.
Stamp the sentiment and punch using the Pretty Label punch, punch another out of Powder Pink cardstock. Cut the pink one in half and use to border the sentiment. Pop up using dimensionals.
There’s a simple trick to keep decorative ribbon laying flat on top when making a double strand knot, see the video below!
I had fun making this Stampin’Up! Crafting Forever Gate fold card. Since I really enjoy coloring, and things with depth and dimension, and moving parts… LOL… so the gate fold card was so fun for me to make a card tutorial on. Start with a base of 8.5″ x 5.5″, score and fold 2 1/8″ in from EACH END. the panels on the front are 5.25″ x 1 7/8″. Although I used our Stampin Up watercolor pencils, I did not blend, I just simply shaded using ONLY the pencils. Easy!
