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.

And here is the video tutorial:

Stampin’Up! Label Me Pretty Powder Pink card

Stampin’Up! Label Me Pretty Powder Pink card

Stampin'Up! Label Me Pretty Powder Pink card

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!

And here’s the video tutorial:

Colorful Seasons Bundle tent fold card

Colorful Seasons Bundle tent fold card

Colorful Seasons Bundle tent fold card

I love this Colorful Seasons Bundle tent fold card!  The bundle is so amazing and has so many possibilities!  

I made this as an A2 card size, just start with a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  Score and fold at 2.75″ and 5.5″ this creates the folds.  The very vanilla cardstock layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ for the inside.  and for the card front cut it at 4″ x 2.5″.  

The chair and 2 branches are cut using soft suede cardstock.  I glued the 2 branches together and covered up the spot with a flower.  Cut each flower in vanilla and bermuda bay, layer then attach.  Make sure not to glue the branches down to the top half of the card, that way they can stand freely when the tent is open.  The tent holds open using a popped up flower.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!
