Tutorial Medley Anything But a Card Candy Bar Sleeve

It's Tutorial Medley Time!  Each month a group of us demonstrators each come up with a project and a tutorial to go along with it.  We put them together and usually end up with about 16 of them.  I send the tutorials out each month to my customers and to my Luv 2 Create Team.  The theme for this month is Anything But a Card.  As I'm writing this for you, I haven't seen but a few of the projects.  I can't wait to see all of them.

I have a sleeve that goes around a candy bar.  I'll also show you in the tutorial how to measure and make a
for any size of candy bar.

You can see that I used a Ferrero Rocher White Hazelnut candy bar.

The tutorial has plenty of pictures for you.  Download Country Birdhouse - May 2024 (1)

There you go!  I love using the Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder on the sleeve.  It's neat that part of the box is
and the other part is debossed.  You choose which is on front!

Let's Take to the Sky!

When it comes to Stampin' Up! I want it all!  Don't you!  Well, guess what, I just can't have it all.  For today's card I have used the Take to the Sky Designer Series Paper.  I did not use the Adventurous Sky bundle.  I think that I made a beautiful card with the paper alone.

Take to the Sky DSP Book Fold  Perennial Postage dies  Industrial Trinkets  Basic Gray and Smoky Slate Pearls  2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I cannot take credit for using the Perennial Postage dies to make the stamps.  I saw a card using 6 of them and immediately thought about the Book Fold and how pretty 4 of the stamps would look.  I did a quick search of Pinterest and couldn't find that card again.  I'm so sorry about that.  I have found it.  Go to stampitupwithjamie.com.

The Book Fold is my favorite fold.  It's perfect if you want a square surface area.  My base is Copper Clay 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 5 1/2 and 6 3/4.  Fold in half and then fold back at the next score line.

I used a Night of Navy backing for my designer paper for one reason only.  I wanted my sky paper to measure 4 x 4 in order to save paper in case we made this card in a class.  Oh, I guess I do have a second reason.  I love thin borders!  The Night of Navy piece for the large square is 4 1/8 x 4 1/8.  The navy for the side is 1 1/8 x 4 1/8.

For the large square, the designer paper is 4 x 4.  The paper for the side piece is 1 x 4.  Glue the pieces together and to the card base.

Let's talk about the side piece.  I used the 2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim.  Personally I feel this trim is too bulky so I divided it into strands.  I took two of the strands and tied them around the side area and into a knot.  Now glue the side piece shut.  If you wish you can tie the trim around the navy and DSP layer before you glue it down.  I think that's what I did for the sample.

Take to the Sky DSP  Perennial Postage dies  Industrial Trinkets  Basic Gray and Smoky Slate Pearls  2023-2025 In Color Jute Trim  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Take the smaller square die from the Perennial Postage dies and cut four different scenes from the designer paper.  I also used one inside.  The Night of Navy background is 2 7/8 x 2 7/8.  Glue the papers so that the open spaces meet to make them look like stamps.  Add dimensionals or Foam Adhesive Sheets to the back and add to the center of the square area.

The saying is from the Thoughtful Wishes stamp set.  I used a long piece of Basic White because it made me think of airplanes that sometimes have signs after them.  Stamp in Night of Navy.

Embellish with Industrial Trinkets and with the Basic Gray & Smoky Slate Pearls.  These embellishments are big.  That's why I placed them on the flat area of the card.

Here's the inside of the card.  Night of Navy 4 1/8 x 4 1/8.  Basic White 4 x 4.  This saying is also from Thoughtful Wishes.

It's hard for me to make masculine cards, but I think this card could go either way.  It turned out just the way I wanted it!  I hope this card has inspired you!  It's one of those that might look a wow, but isn't that hard to make.  I take the time to write out directions and hints because I want to find that kind of post.  It does take time.  I'm not sure that it is read by many, but it's here for those who want it.  I do sell Stampin' Up! supplies and would love to help you in that way as well.  Now go stamp something!

Seaside Wishes So Simple

Today I'm using the Seaside Wishes bundle.  I've had several sea sets and at first I didn't think I needed this one.  But take a closer look.  This set has a hybrid embossing folder!  What does that mean?  You can emboss, or you can cut and emboss at the same time.  You can also just cut.  Hybrid Embossing Folders are the best!  Image at Stampin' Up!  

Seaside Wishes Bundle (English)

 

I didn't use the folder for my card today.  I wanted to keep this card very simple.  We'll mainly use the Seaside Wishes stamp set.

Seaside Wishes Simple  Linen Thread  Deckled Rectangles  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

 

The  base of this card is Basic Beige.  This is a brand new color for us!  It measures 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and fold in the middle.   I used another piece of Crumb Cake 4 x 5 1/4 for stamping.  Now you'll simply stamp over the front of the card making your own designer paper.  Start with the large sand dollar and stamp it with Crumb Cake.  Three are probably enough.  Now stamp the smaller sand dollars still in Crumb Cake.  I used three of these as well.  If you go over the sides, the card looks more realistic.

Now take the large starfish and stamp it in Calypso Coral.  Stamp off on your scrap paper first to soften the look.  Make three of these.  Make sure these are near the edges so they will be seen beyond the center layer.

Stamp the dots all over in Crumb Cake.  Glue the layer to the front of the card.

The center layer is cut from Basic White using the Deckled Rectangle dies.  Use the die that is approximately 2 1/2 x 4.  Again, stamp the background using the same stamps and colors.  Use one large sand dollar and 2 small ones.  Stamp off  this time.  Stamp the saying in the middle in Calypso Coral ink.  Now add the little starfish stamping them off first.

Stamp the dots over this layer as well.  No need to stamp these off first.

tie linen thread around this layer winding it around two times.  Tie into a knot.  If there is extra thread on the front, pull it to the back and tape it down so that the thread is tight. 

Add dimensionals to the back of the layer and add to the center of the card front.

Embellish with some of the Adhesive Backed Swirl Dots.

For the inside just add a saying from Seaside Wishes and more of the stamps.

Unbounded Love and Stippled Roses Together

I just can't seem to stop using our new Petunia Pop.  Ask anyone, I'm not a pink person, but maybe it's time I gave pink a chance.  After all there are two shades of pink in our new In Colors.

Unbounded Love bundle Card  Unbounded Beauty DSP  2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots  Petunia Pop Bordered Ribbon  Stippled Roses  Torn Paper  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card begins with Petunia Pop measuring 4 1/4 x 11, score at 5 1/2 and fold.  Burnish with a Bone Folder.

We'll be using the Unbounded Beauty Designer Series Paper.  I'm using three designs, but one of them is back to back.  All are cut to a length of 4 1/4, the same as our card size.  The first is a Petunia Pop stripe.  The width is 1 3/4.  Tear away at one side.  Tear toward you so that some of the white shows.  Run this piece through the Cut & Emboss Machine with the Distressed Tile Embossing Folder.  The second two prints as I said are back to back.  Cut two strips about 1 inch.  The piece with the Summer Splash color is directional.  Take that into account.  Tear a small strip from each of these.  Again, tear toward you.  Glue these three strips together making sure they are alighned along the top and bottom.  Glue to the card front.

Unbounded Love bundle  Unbounded Beauty DSP  2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots  Petunia Pop Bordered Ribbon  Stippled Roses  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create


Run a length of the Petunia Pop Bordered Ribbon around the card front and tie it into a knot.  By the way, this ribbon is wonderful.  I thought that it looked bulky and thick, but took a chance.  This ribbon is just delightful and ties so nicely.  I recommend it!

Stamp the large flower stamp from the Stippled Roses stamp set to the right of the card in Petunia Pop.  That's such a pretty image!

The label uses both the Unbounded Love stamp set and the Unbounded Love dies.  You will definitely want the bundle!  The saying is stamped in Petunia Pop on Basic White.  Isn't this a beautiful die?  It's new and unexpected.

Finish up using the 2024-2026 In Color Resin Dots.

Here's the inside of the card.  Stamp the large flower again down in the corner.  The saying is again from Unbounded Love.  I hate to admit it, but I made a mistake.  This gives me a great reason to show off this die from Unbounded Love.  It makes two parts so you can use it with or without the frame.

Country Birdhouse and Country Flowers

I hope you are enjoying your new Stampin' Up! catalog.  There's a mega suite located on pages 48-51 called the Country Woods Suite Collection.  The Suite consists of the Country Birdhouse bundle, the Country Flowers bundle, the Country Woods Designer Series Paper, the Country Lace Designer Series Paper, Basic Gray & Smoky Slate Pearls, Petal Pink & White Diagonal Trim Combo, and the Eyelet 3D Embossing Folder.  That's a lot of coordination going on!  I purchased the entire suite.  Not all items are being used in my card today, but there's a lot of cuteness going on!  Usually you can order the suite with one order number and that is so conveniet, but, you may see when ordering that the suite is not available right now.  Don't be deterred.  Right now the Petal Pink & White ribbon is not available.  The other parts of the suite are available!  Estimates are that the ribbon will return around June 10th, but by then something else might be out.  Order what you can if you really want it!  That is my lesson.

Country Birdhouse bundle  Country Flowers dies  Country Woods DSP  Country Lace DSP  Blends  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Now isn't that so cute!  We made this card in my classes last week, or a close version of it.  I think everyone enjoyed it.

The base is Thick Basic White 4 1/4 x 11, score and fold at 5 1/2.  Use a Bone Folder to burnish the fold.  The designer paper on the background is from the Country Lane 12 x 12 DSP.  I love the subtle eyelet lace of this paper.  It measures 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.  Glue to the center of the card front.

The designer paper for the birdhouse and the roof and bottom of the birdhouse is from the Country Woods 12 x 12 DSP.  Stamp the birdhouse on the Pool Party and wood paper in Early Espresso.  Cut this out with the Country Birdhouse dies.  Color the hole on the birdhouse with a  dark blend.  The roof and bottom are cut from a wood grain paper from the Country Woods paper.  The scalloped part of the roof is cut from Basic White.  Let me say here that there is another thin roof part that goes between the wooden roof and the white scallop.  Just to simplify the house a little, I left that part off.  The scalloped part does still cover that scalloped stamped part of the birdhouse.

Country Birdhouse bundle  Country Flowers dies  Country Woods DSP  Country Lace DSP  Blends  Close Up  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Stamp the bird with Memento Black and color with the Pool Party and the Balmy Blue Combo Packs Blends.  I colored the beak and feet with a Peach Pie Stampin' Write Marker.  Use the bullet end.  Cut out the bird with the dies.

Stamp the saying from the Country Birdhouse stamp set in Early Espresso and fussy cut around it with Paper Snips.  Add the saying with dimensionals.

The leaves and flowers are cut using the Country Flowers dies.  The leaves are in Soft Sea Foam and the flowers are in Petal Pink.  Glue near the bottom of the card.  Color in the center of the flowers with Wink of Stella.

Add the bird with dimensionals

Cut the birdhouse holder from Early Espresso and add to the top of the card.  You might have to trim the bottom just a little.

For the inside, a saying from Country Birdhouse and another flower down in the corner.

The birdhouse is as cute as it can be, but if I were you, I'd take a look at the suite.
