April 3D Tutorial & Blog Hop

It’s a new month and to kick it off, we have the April 3D Tutorial Bundle!  In addition to the April 3D Tutorial Bundle, the team is featuring a blog hop.  We’re each sharing a project created to coordinate with our tutorial project.  The theme for this month is Mother’s Day and more Spring Celebrations.  

Remember, the projects designed for the 3D tutorial bundle aren’t available elsewhere online.  Therefore, you’ll receive EXCLUSIVE projects in the tutorial bundle.  In addition, you’ll receive both Imperial and Metric project measurements.

Here’s a Sneak Peek of the April 3D projects…

You’re going to love the projects featured in this month’s tutorial! 

The card to coordinate with my 3D project is for Mother’s Day but the sentiment can easily be changed to use for a variety of occasions.  Be sure to scroll below the card photo for card details and the Design Sketch.

The card design utilizes the sketch below:Card Details:
  • To create the card base, cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Seaside Spray cardstock and score/fold at 5-1/2″.
  • Next, make the second layer using a piece of 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ Whisper White cardstock.  With the “splotch” stamp from the Delightful Day stamp set and Seaside Spray Classic Stampin’ pad, stamp a background on the Whisper White cardstock.  TIP: stamp off once before stamping onto the cardstock to create a light background. 
  • After stamping the background, emboss the second layer using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. 
  • With the large Stitched Shapes circle die, cut the Seaside Spray gingham print from the 6″ x 6″ In-Color Designer Series Paper.  Referring to the design sketch, cut the right side portion of the circle and attach to the Whisper White cardstock layer.  Add to card base.
  • Using the Daisy Lane stamp set & Seaside Spray Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp six medium daisies onto Whisper White cardstock.  With coordinating Daisy Punch, cut the daisies.  Then, layer two daisies together, adhering at the center with mini glue dots.
  • Cut four leaves from Old Olive cardstock using the Lovely Leaves Dies.  Optional: sponge the edge of the leaves with Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad ink.
  • Next, add leaves to daisies with mini-glue dots and attach to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For an added touch, cut 2″-3″ strips of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and tuck among daisies using adhesive.
  • Using the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment in the Dressed to Impress Stamp Set, to stamp sentiment onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut into a banner shape using the Merry Christmas Dies.  Sponge along the edge of the banner with the Seaside Spray ink. Then, add the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • To complete the card front, add a Clear Faceted Gem to the center of each daisy.
The Mother’s Day card along with the 3D project was lots of fun to create.  Utilizing a Design Sketch when making a card is also a fun challenge.

Here’s a Sneak Peek of the March 3D projects…March 3D Tutorial Bundle

For my coordinating project, I designed an Easter card by combining several stamp sets.  Don’t you agree the “little chick” from the Full of Happiness Stamp Set is cute and makes you think of Easter? Want to use the card for another Spring celebration?   Just change out the sentiment.  Easter Card

Card Details:
  • Create card base using a 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock.  Score at 4-1/4″ and fold along score line.
  • Use a 5-1/4″ x 4″ piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock for the second layer.  Attach to the card base with adhesive.
  • Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock 5″ x 3-3/4″.  On the right side of the cardstock, stamp the chick from the Full of Happiness stamp set.  Use Daffodil Delight Classic Stampin’ Pad for the body, Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ Pad for the feet and beak and Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad for the eyes.
  • On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the egg shell outline using Sahara Sand Classic Stampin’ Pad.  If desired, add the speckles using the same color.  Cut using the coordinating Dino Dies. 
  • Use the egg shell as a guide to determine where to stamp the greenery vines from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set (this is a Sale-a-Bration Stamp Set, you can get it free with a $50 order!).  Remove the egg shell and stamp the vine using Granny Apple Green Classic Stampin’ Pad.  Also, stamp part of the vine below the chick’s feet.  Stamp small flowers on the vine using Gorgeous Grape Classic Stampin’ Pad.  
  • Stamp “Easter Greetings” sentiment from Fable Friends Stamp Set on the card using the Gorgeous Grape Classic Stampin’ Pad. 
  • With adhesive, add to the Granny Apple Green layer.
  • Adhere the egg shell to the card front.  
  • With the Small Bloom Punch (Sale-a-Bration brochure offering), cut 5 flowers from the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper.  
  • Using the open leaves dies in the Detailed Bands Dies, cut 2 sets of leaves.  Snip into pieces to length desired.  Add to the card front using Mini Glue Dots.  
  • Next, position the 5 flower blooms so they are cascading from the egg shell and attach using Mini Glue Dots.  Lastly, complete the card by adding Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of each flower.

Celebrating Birthdays with Monthly 3D Tutorial Bundle

Welcome to February! Today, the team is celebrating birthdays with a blog hop!  In addition to the blog hop, the  3D Tutorial Bundle is available.  We’re each sharing a project created using the same stamp set or bundle that has been used in our Tutorial Bundle Project.  The theme for this month is celebrating birthdays.

The projects designed for the 3D tutorial bundle aren’t available elsewhere online.  Therefore, you’ll receive EXCLUSIVE projects in the tutorial bundle.  In addition, you’ll receive both Imperial and Metric project measurements.

Check out the amazing line up of project designers. Yes, they are pretty amazing and talented Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators!

Now for a Sneak Peek of the projects…

Since we’re celebrating birthdays, a birthday card design to coordinate with my 3D project design is needed.  The card uses the Peaceful Poppies Suite which includes the Painted Poppies Bundle and the Peaceful Moments Bundle.  Also, featured is the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper.  I choose to use a special fold by using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies to create a closure flap.  

Card Details:
  • Blackberry Bliss cardstock: card base  5-1/2″ x 7″ score at 4-1/4″; 5″ x 3″ for panel overlay; 2-1/4″ square for poppy 
  • Whisper White cardstock: 4″ x 5-1/4″ for inside panel; 2-3/4″ x 4-1/2″ for panel overlay layer
  • Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper: 5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ for front card panel; 5-1/4″ x 1-1/2″ for inside card panel; 2-1/4″ square for poppy 
  • Attach Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper to the card front and the card interior.  
  • Stamp interior sentiment using Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Pad.  Additionally, stamp a poppy with Blackberry Bliss and Memento Tuxedo Black ink to the interior panel.  
  • With the 2nd largest Stitched Nested Labels Die, cut the Blackberry Bliss cardstock panel overlay.  Score one side of the panel where the “flag” end starts.  Adhere along the score line and fold flap to the interior Whisper White cardstock panel. (refer to photos below)
  • Using the 3rd largest Stitched Nested Labels Die, cut the Whisper White panel overlay layer.  Cut and remove one “flag” end.  Referring to the card photo for placement, stamp the sentiment using Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Pad.  Attach to the Blackberry Bliss panel overlay. (refer to photos below)
  • Cut the poppy components from the Blackberry Bliss and the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper using the Peaceful Moments dies.
  • Cut two leaves from Old Olive cardstock and two leaves from Vellum cardstock using the Peaceful Moments Dies.  Use a splatter stamp from the Painted Poppies Stamp set and Old Olive Stampin’ Pad to add dimension to the Old Olive leaves. 
  • Layer leaves and Poppy on the Whisper White panel beside the sentiment.
  • Use Blackberry Bliss Stampin’ Blend to color three Basic Rhinestone Jewels and a 6″ strip of Whisper White 1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.   When dry, add rhinestones and a small bow to the card front.

Pack & Play Craft Escape

Hi everyone!  I’ve been MIA the past two weeks and am finally am catching up.  Seems time literally flies!  Last weekend, Stampin’ Up! hosted OnStage events for demonstrators.  Basically it’s mini-conventions held in various locations.  One of the highlights of the event is the release of the January-June mini catalog.  I’ll be sharing projects from it starting in a couple of weeks. 

For me, the Atlanta event location was close so prior the official Stampin’ Up! event, I hosted a one-day Pack & Play Craft Escape for 60 demonstrators. As it was a large undertaken, Joni, one of my Playtime with Paper team members, co-hosted with me.  Plus several other team members were able to help assemble the make ‘n take kits prior to the event.  The event was definitely worth the extra effort and teamwork as the day was a blast!  The Pack & Play Craft Escape provided attendees with eight make ‘n takes.  In addition, three guest speakers offered training and additional project ideas.  

Below is a photo of the make ‘n takes.   

 

If you would like detailed instructions on making these projects, I have a tutorial available for you to purchase.  It includes instructions for 2 cards, 2 gift cards, a wine tag, a hand sanitizer holder, a 3-D mini cup and an embellished Baker’s Box.  The cost for the PDF tutorial is $15.00 (US).  Email me at creativestampingwithMargaret@gmail.com to purchase the tutorial and I will send you the PayPal payment link.  Once payment is received, I’ll email you the PDFs.  

Or if you’d like to receive the tutorial for FREE, place an online order for $50 or more between now and December 10th.  The order must be placed through my online store. When I receive confirmation of your order, I will email you the tutorial.  This is a $15.00 value.

Below are a few photos from the Pack & Play Craft Escape.  

It was a fun filled day and I look forward to hosting another Pack & Play Craft Escape!

Thanks for stopping by.  I’m back on schedule and will be posting project ideas again this week so check in again.
