Teamie Tuesday – Lift Me Up

For today’s Teamie Tuesday Challenge I gave everyone (on my Stampin’ Up! Team) a card sketch that I had found on Pinterest, we could use anything in our stash, I choose to use the sketch as a base but changed it quite a bit. You can view the process video HERE!

Teamie Tuesday!

Stampin’ Up! Really is for all levels of crafter and the products can be used in a variety of ways! In my little team we have scrapbookers, smashbookers, card makers, mixed media artists and many more talents. To showcase these to you I came up with “Teamie Tuesday” each week I will set a challenge and my team will interpret that anyway they wish and will make a project to show on their blogs and social media. This week, as some  are very new and have only just received their kit, I set the challenge of just making anything from their kit!

Due to the workshop this weekend I haven’t really had time to craft much but I have been making bows!! Yup bows haha!

I actually forgot how much I love my envelope punch board and every scrap of paper gets turned into a bow (and then stolen by one of my daughters the cheeky monkeys).


When I first purchased the envelope punch board I made lots of these in various sizes and attatched them to paperclips for my planners, here’s how to make them;

Cut 3 lengths of DSP at; 6″X1″ , 3.5″ x 1″ , .25″ x 1.25″


Take your biggest strip and place a corner in the centre of the punch:


Punch!

Do that for all 4 corners:


Place one end of the DSP at 3″ and punch, then flip and do the other side:


Use the bone folder that comes with the board and gently run over the back of the paper so that it bend in.


Take your glue (I use glue dots) and glue each end to the centre:


Set that to one side!

Take the middle piece of paper and punch on the short sides:


And then at 1.75″ on both of the long sides:


Pop your glue dot on the centre and attatched the bow:


You can use a pen to round the bow and give it dimension or flatten it to use on projects like scrapbooking. I like to use double sided papers and revers the pattern for the bottom and smallest piece as it gives a nice contrast, they also look amazing in black and gold.

To purchase any of the above products you can visit my shop HERE… don’t forget to use the hostes code 7TY39NVG for a free gift from me with a spend over £20!

Quick cards – from a non card maker!!

Although I’m a paper crafter I’ve never really got into card making but it’s so hard to stay away from when the catalogue is packed with lots of amazing inspiration.

I had 20 minutes to spare and a few bits of offcuts from a recent project so I decided to make some super quick and colourful cards to have on hand as I have some birthdays coming up.

This was the result, I made a few rookie errors and I really need to get the hang of adding the ink to the stamp and not pressing the stamp in the ink… to watch the quick process video click HERE!

For these cards I used the Birthday Fiesta range which you can find HERE! Don’t forget to use this months (Marc 2017) Hostess code 7TY39NVG and any order over £20 will receive a free gift from me!
