2013 Birthday Class-5

First up today is the fifth and final card for my Birthday Card Class held on the weekend.  It was scheduled to post Friday morning but I had an unexpected visitor come by and my to-do list flew out the window. 

This visitor is pretty bald, perfectly chubby and has a smile that melts my heart.

9 weeks old

Little Camden is 10 weeks old this week.  It’s kind of dangerous to have a grandchild in the same city as me, not to mention, one that lives only 5 minutes away.  My to-do list has no authority when Camden is around.  I just can’t take my eyes off of him!

So now that Friday’s post is finally up, let’s get on to today’s card:

By the Tide set sampler-4

This gorgeous “hunk” of a card has really served me well this month.  I’m not one to pump out masculine cards on a regular basis, so I got as many uses out of this design as I could!  One of my hostesses chose the By the Tide stamp set as her stamp club set choice and everyone loved it so much, I chose it as a last minute, unexpected entry into my Birthday Card Class on the weekend as well where it was equally adored.

Supplies used:

Stamps- By the Tide, Perfectly Penned

Ink & Paper – Midnight Muse, Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Early Espresso

Accessories – baker’s twine, Pop Tops, Crystal Effects, 1 3/8″ square punch, sponges

 

Camden is coming over today again – I promise I’ll try to stay on track! 🙂 TTFN!

Baby Quilt

This week, I’ve had to move aside my adhesive, scissors and stamps to make room for fabric.  Why?

This grandma has grandson #2 arriving anyday now and I have to get his quilt finished before he makes his grand appearance!!  One more full day and it should be ready to wrap around his sweet little frame!!  I can’t wait to see him but I know my daughter is more ansy than I am!! LOL

BUT – I didn’t forget that I’ve promised many of you the instructions and cutting dimensions for this wrapped chocolate case that I took with me to the Stampin’ Up! Leadership conference last month!

Leadership 2013 friend gifts-1

Thanks for patiently waiting for these instructions -they are long overdue:

1.  Folder – cut cardstock at 6″ x 6 7/8″ (I used Pool Party).  Score the 6 7/8″ side at 3 1/4″ and 3 5/8″.

2.  Decorate the front panel as desired.

3.  Pockets – cut 3 pieces at 1 3/4″ x 3 3/4″.  Score three sides (1 long and both short sides) at 3/8″ and 3/4″.  Cut out unnecessary corner boxes created by scoring on each pocket as shown in photo below:

4.  On all 3 pockets, fold on all score lines and fold up securing tabs with glue dots creating open-backed pockets.

5.  Wrap chocolates using strips of DSP cut at 7/8″ x 4 1/2″.  I used these chocolates found at Costco:

6.  Attach pockets to inside of folder and insert two chocolates into each pocket.  Adhere the chocolates in highest pocket with glue dots so they don’t slip out.

7.  Punch 1 hole in front panel and 1 hole in back panel and thread ribbon through holes and tie closed.

You’re all done – happy crafting!

Supplies used:

Stamps – Tea Shoppe, Apothecary Art

Ink & Paper – Sycamore Street DSP, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White

Accessories – Big Shot & Label Collection Framelits, Boho Blossoms punch, silver brads, Sycamore Street ribbon pack, 1/8?hole punch

TTFN!

The hostess for stamp club tonight didn’t really have an opinion on which stamp set she wanted to work with, but she sure had a color in mind!

I was asked to create fun girly projects using the color PURPLE!

Do you realize how many shades of purple Stampin’Up! offers???  It was a fun challenge to use them all!  Lets take a closer look at all this purple:

 

I teamed the new In Color, Wisteria Wonder with an older In Color, Concord Crush

Supplies used:

Stamps – Oval All

Ink & Paper – Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush, Vellum cardstock

Accessories – a whole lotta Big Shot!  & stripes embossing folder, Flower Garden folder, Beautiful Wings embosslit, large & scallop oval punches, dimensionals, organza ribbon

 

My favorite card of the night and another purple combo – Perfect Plum & Elegant Eggplant

Supplies used:

Stamps – Bordering on Romance, Petit Pairs

Ink & Paper – Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Pear Pizzazz, Very Vanilla, Subtles DSP pack

Accessories – Big Shot & Adorning Accents Edgelits, Dots embossing folder, circle and scallop circle punches, dimensionals, pearl accents, blender pens

 

This card is a replica of one I received from my Leadership roommate Connie Collins at Constantly Stamping.  I love looking at the one she made in Island Indigo, but decided to try a Rich Razzleberry finish just for my hostess- pretty cute!

Supplies used:

Stamps – Fresh Vintage, Apothecary Art

Ink & Paper – Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Brights DSP pack (Daffodil Delight)

I have used this set, Apothecary Art, for a few cards now – I was happy to use it a different way, other than watercoloring all those tiny flowers!  I love the “softness” of the colors on this card.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Apothecary Art

Ink & Paper – Twitterpated DSP, Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler

Accessories – Big Shot & Labels Framelits & Adorning Accents Edgelits, 1/8″ hole punch, pleated ribbon, crystal rhinestone brads

TTFN!
