Stampin'Up! Picture Frames Layering Squares card

This Stampin’Up! Picture Frames Layering Squares card was one of my favorite quick & easy to do cards!  I love the texture that the stitched framelits adds to everything you create!

This starts with an A2 card base of Whisper White cut at 5.5″ x 8.5″ and then scored and folded at 4.25″.  The Eastern Palace DSP paper is cut at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and the smaller Whisper White seaside embossed layer is cut at 4.75″ x 3.5″.

The DSP square stitch framelit die is 2 5/8″, and simply layer a quare framelit die inside.  You can run it through the bigshot at the same time and this creates a frame.  Use the 2 5/8″ square framelit for the pacific point square as well.  For this one, since the frame is smaller you will need to do the inside cut afterwards.  The oval stitched framelit is the 2.75″ one in length.

Pop up the frames and sentiment using dimesionals and attach the Fresh Fig Ribbon knot with a glue dot.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Crafting Forever Masculine Card

The perfect touch for this Crafting Forever Masculine Card is added by the copper heat embossing, copper foil paper, and Stampin write markers.

Simply start with a Night of Navy A2 card base, cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The second layer is Early Espresso cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, and the very vanilla layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  

Stamp the pen set ( which I love!) on the left and right sides of the base centered.  Also stamp the envelope at this time!  Clean the stamp free of ink.

Heat emboss the focal point with copper powder and colored with a night of navy stampin’ write marker.  Finally, the vanilla focal is cut at 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″, the copper is cut at 2 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, and the final night of navy layer is 3″ x 3″.

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.

And here is the video tutorial:
