Spinning Penguin Card!

Today, I wanted to share the cutest card ever and a quick video.  I made this card last Friday night at my friend Jeanne's stamp night.  This idea blossomed from a video I saw Connie Stewart doing on a spinning snowflake card.  Click on her name to watch that video too!



Here are the products you will need to make this card:


Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog



Creating the Spinning Penguin Card  

1. Card base – Tempting Turquoise – A2 size 8.5 by 5.5, scored at 4.25 
2. Emboss top half of turquoise with the softly falling folder 
3. Real Red Layer is cut at 4.5  by 3.25 
4. Whisper White is cut at 3 by 4.25 – punch the 1” circle in the lower right corner of white 
5. Now you can adhere the white to the real red (Note: Do Not adhere red to turquoise yet) 
6. Stamp penguin in black onto a scratch piece of Whisper White, color in beak and feet with Tangelo marker. 
Then cut your penguin out using your framelit.
7. Cut about 12” of turquoise baker’s twine 
a. On one end place twine between 2 dimensionals – kind of spread it out between sticky dimensionals (do not remove outside paper on dimensionals) 
b. On other end place twine between the 2 – ½” red circles you punched 
c. Place brad down between middle of the 2 dimensional side 
d. Now place brad through the middle of circle and real red.  Do not tighten brad too much or penguin won’t spin. 
e. Adhere your real red layer now to the turquoise embossed cover 
8. Now you need to adhere the penguin on top of double dimensional surface 
9. Wrap twine gently around penguin and pull gently. 
10. He should spin!!!!  

Note: Just be patient sometimes the sticky dimensionals or adhesive you used on penguin get him stuck a bit.  The more you play with it the better it gets.  I also found that it brad is too tight on back of real red you may need to loosen it a bit.

Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions.
Happy Stampin!

Winter Pillow Box Video!!

Happy Day!!! I'm so excited to share this project with you!  I know I will be doing a lot of these over the holiday season.  Why? Because who doesn't love gift cards!  Shopping for others is not my forte but listening and knowing what they love is!  Which means I know exactly where to get them a gift card or certificate where they can pick out whatever they love.  Hmmm, which means I should probably leave a hint here for my kiddos and hubby..stamp n storage gift card please ;) I digress. 

Pool Party - I think I may be addicted. :)  I am loving this color with everything lately.  This pillow box can be used all year long - it is so versatile.  So, to show you how versatile it can be - check out my 2 pillow boxes below.  Totally different colors but both look great and actually this box would work in any color.

Flurry of Wishes Card!

Hello!  Today I have a winter card to share and a video.  Now some of you may say, this card looks familiar...well that's because I shared a picture of this same card earlier in the month but in a different color.  This time I used Pool Party versus Elegant Eggplant the first time.  I actually can't decide which one I like best :)  What do you think?

Fall Card!

Happy Monday! Today, I have a video for you.  Yay!  I know it took me a while but my camera was giving me trouble.  I finally ordered a new battery so hopefully that will do the trick. Today's project features Stampin' Up! Sheltering Tree stamp set. This is by far one of my favorite sets.  It is so versatile and can be used with many color combinations.  Not to mention I love the font on the sentiments.  I hope you enjoy the video and the project.  This is only my 2nd video ever so I'm still learning but I will share another Winter Video later this week.



Here is a list of the products I used in this project.

October Paper Pumpkin!!

My October Paper Pumpkin kit came in the mail yesterday.  I just love getting these surprise boxes in the mail every month.  This month, Stampin' Up! showed support to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation by donating a $1 for every new paper pumpkin subscriber.  I can't wait to hear how much was donated.  It is such a great cause!  Unfortunately, my video camera battery died so I wasn't able to do a video for you this month.  So, the next best thing - pictures :)  This month's kit was called Blissful Bouquet and included 9 cards with envelopes.  It came with the new basic grey stampin spot and a cute stamp set which included floral images and sentiments.  Here are the 3 cards I made quickly last night.

More Stamp Night Cards!

Happy Wednesday! I just wanted to share a quick post today with the cards I made last Friday night. We created a Thanksgiving card and 2 Christmas cards. Have you ever seen a purple Christmas card? Well I have not but I think I'm in love! What do you think? I have to admit I wasn't sure when I started but by the time I got home, that purple Christmas card was definitely my favorite. I apologize for the lighting in these pictures but I hope you like them. It has been very gloomy here in Chicago.
If you have not seen the holiday catalog, it is worth a look here.
As always, feel free to email me with any questions you may have. Happy Stampin!

Stamp Night Cards

I have been attending a Stamp Night once a month and am having a blast!  I really enjoy making 15 cards/3 designs in 3 hours with a great group of people.  One day, I hope to host my own Stamp Night.  Until then, I thought I would share our creations.  The host comes up with the 3 designs but if you are familiar with the Stampin Up! annual and holiday catalogs, you can easily see where she got her inspiration.  I also wanted to mention my new favorite trick - stamping the envelope!

My First Video! September Paper Pumpkin

Happy Wednesday! Today, I have my very first video ever. Yikes!!! I have been trying to get a video up for what seems like weeks...no kidding. This video making stuff is sooo much harder than it seems. I know I am my own worst critic - so I finally decided to just bite the bullet as they say. It is definitely a work in progress and a skill I need to perfect.  However, I would love some feedback. That's the only way to learn, right.

 Here's a quick picture of the project too.
 Happy Stampin! Hope to see you real soon.

Flower Patch Card

Today, I have a beautiful card which I basically stole from page 77 of the current Stampin Up! annual catalog. From the second I saw it - I knew I had to make it! The only difference I see is the orientation of how the card opens. What do you think? Do you agree? Here's a picture from the catalog and a picture of mine :)
I personally love it! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Tuesday!!

Today, I have a quick and pretty card for you all. The card is a standard A2 size. I'm actually making a set of these cards to give as a gift. The dimensions for the card base are 8.5 x 5.5, scored at 4.25. I used Whisper White as a base layer on the front of the card. This simple card only used a handful of products and came out super cute!

Stamp Night Cards

Happy Thursday!! I attended a stamp night last Friday, a friend of mine hosted and wanted to share the 3 cards we created. Since I'm a newbie to Stampin' Up! this was a great experience for me.  I was able to see how she hosted and organized the event but also learned a new technique - watercoloring! Double bonus for me :)  I can't wait to watercolor some more when my aqua painters come in. Each card was made with current products available in the catalog. I have shared some of the supplies used below.  I hope these inspire you to get creative!

Last Day to Order the July Paper Pumpkin Kit!

Today is the last day to order the July Paper Pumpkin Kit from ©Stampin' Up!.  I have been a member for 1 month and am super excited to see what the July kit will be!  When I signed up as a demonstrator, I was surprised with a paper pumpkin kit in my starter kit.  

What's so great about these kits are they arrive with everything you need to complete the project - stamps, ink, paper, embellishments and any pre-cut designs you may need.  How easy is that?!  The best part....it's a surprise in your mailbox each month.

Here are a few pictures from my June kit - super cute!!!!  The kit comes in the cutest packaging ever...and had all the materials to create 6 cards!  You get an instruction booklet which shows you how to create cards step by step or just can just be creative and do what makes you happy :)  

To order your kit visit: Paper Pumpkin  You can either order month by month or order for the year...also you can cancel anytime with no penalty.

My First Stampin' Up! Card Swap

As promised I wanted to share my first card made with Stampin' Up! products. I joined Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator under Robyn C (aka MyPinkStamper.com). We have a huge group of new demonstrators who have joined Robyn's team so she suggested we do a card swap. Such a great idea, right!!

Especially for us newbies who have to build up their product stock and learn new techniques.  I can't wait to see what everyone created.  I'm sure all of the cards I receive back will be awesome.  Seeing everyone's work will be so inspiring!   

Here's what I came up with from my starter kit. Start your adventure for just $99 and receive $125 worth of products you choose from the current catalog.  Visit my website http://theirishscrapper.stampinup.net and click on Join the Fun!
