CPC Falling in Love with Card Candy


Today's Craft Project Central project is designed by Buffy Cooper.

Whether you need a gift for a crafty friend, want to help a new crafter get started with card making, or need to make a quick card yourself, this tote full of card candy is the answer. Using the Falling in Love suite from the 2017 Stampin’ Up! Occasions Catalog, you’ll create several sheets of sentiments and embellishments that can easily be added to a card base to create a beautiful card in minutes. The adorable purse is perfect to hold the card candy and can be used as a gift bag later. An added bonus is a greeting card using some of the candy so the recipient can see how simple it is to create a card. This would make a lovely hostess gift or a fun class or stamp camp.


If you would like to see the complete project, and learn how to make it, you'll want to subscribe for the month of January. With your subscription, you'll get illustrated, step-by-step instructions for five wonderful projects for only $10! You can find out how to gain access to a bonus sixth project over at Craft Project Central.

Cool Treats CPC67 Card


This is the first card I've made with this wonderful Cool Treats Bundle! It's so much fun! I used this month's Creating Pretty Cards Sketch #67 at Craft Project Central. If you play along with this card sketch, you could win a free month subscription to Craft Project Central! Click Here to find out how!

As you can see, I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits on this card. I have GREAT NEWS about these dies. They'll be available to order again VERY SOON! Stay tuned! 😊


Dimensions:
  • Pear Pizzazz:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base)
  • Crumb Cake:  5-1/4" x 4" (base layer)
  • Pool Party:  5" x 1-3/4" (bottom layer)
  • Irresistibly Floral Specialty DSP:  5-1/4" x 2" (circles paper)
  • Watermelon Wonder:  3-3/4" x 2-3/4" (scallop oval)
  • Whisper White:  5" x 3" (stitched oval and ice cream cone)
Card Instructions:
  1. Fold the Pear Pizzazz card base piece in half. Attach the Crumb Cake base layer to the top of the card base.
  2. Attach the Pool Party bottom layer piece to the bottom of the card, making sure the Crumb Cake mat is the same width on the sides and the bottom.
  3. Sponge ink from the Peekaboo Peach Classic Stampin' Pad all over the Designer Series Paper (DSP) piece. Once it's completely covered, wipe the embossed circles with a tissue to remove any excess ink.
  4. Put the popsicle tape from the Tasty Treats Designer Washi Tape across the bottom of the DSP piece. Attach the whole thing to the top of the card, making sure the Crumb Cake mat is the same width on the sides and the top. The sides of the Pool Party piece and the DSP piece should also line up.
  5. Die-cut the Watermelon Wonder piece with the largest scallop oval die from the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies. Die-cut the left side of the Whisper White piece with the largest oval die from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
  6. Stamp the "You're" stamp from the Cool Treats Stamp Set on the left side of the Whisper White oval  using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the "Sweet" stamp underneath "You're" using the Watermelon Wonder Classic Stampin' Pad.
  7. Stamp the tall, soft-serve ice cream base stamp onto the remaining Whisper White piece using the Peekaboo Peach Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the coordinating swirls stamp on top of the ice cream using the Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the waffle cone stamp onto the same Whisper White piece using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut these two images with their coordinating dies from the Frozen Treats Framelits Dies.
  8. Attach the ice cream and cone to the right side of the white oval. Attach this oval to the Watermelon Wonder scallop oval.
  9. Attach a few Sprinkles Embellishments on top of the ice cream using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen. Tip:  I put a little dot of glue where I want a sprinkle to go. Then, I lay the sprinkle onto the glue, and press the sprinkle down with the glue bottle lid to secure it. If you use your finger, the sprinkle tends to stick to your finger...it doesn't stick the lid. 😊
  10. Attach the whole thing to the right, center of the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Tasty Trucks Camp Card


Here's the last card that will be made at my Sale-A-Bration Stamp Camp next week. This card features the super cute Sale-A-Bration (SAB) stamp set, Tasty Trucks. There are a few other items to add to the little window in the truck, too. So cute and fun to play with! I colored it in with our new Watercolor Pencils, too. I LOVE them!


Dimensions:
  • Melon Mambo:  5-1/2" x 8-1/2" (card base)
  • Bermuda Bay:  5-1/4" x 4" (embossed layer)
  • Pumpkin Pie:  3-1/4" x 2-1/2" (main image mat)
  • Whisper White:  3" x 2-1/4" (main image)
  • Melon Mambo:  3" x 1/2" (greeting)
  • Festive Birthday Designer Series Paper (DSP):  2" x 4"
Instructions:
  1. Fold the Melon Mambo card base piece in half. Emboss the Bermuda Bay piece using the Sparkle Textured Impression Embossing Folder. Attach the DSP piece to the left side of the embossed piece, and then attach the whole thing to the card base.
  2. Stamp the truck stamp from the Tasty Trucks Stamp Set onto the center of the Whisper White piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Stamp the cupcake stamp three times across the large truck window using the same ink pad.
  3. Color the image using Watercolor Pencils and then brushing over the pencil coloring with a Blender Pen to smooth out the lines. You don't need to color the areas in the image completely with the Watercolor Pencils. The Blender Pen will spread the color out. I used the following pencils:  Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Bermuda Bay, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Real Red, and Chocolate Chip.
  4. Once the coloring is finished, attach the piece to the Pumpkin Pie piece. Then, attach it to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals (see picture for placement).
  5. Stamp the "You're the sweetest" stamp onto the small Melon Mambo piece using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad. Trim the right end of the piece at an angle (see picture). Attach it underneath the stamped image, and to the right of the DSP. Attach a Pumpkin Pie enamel heart from the Brights Enamel Shapes.

Hey, Chick Stamp Camp Card


Today's card is another card that will be made at my Sale-A-Bration (SAB) Stamp Camp next week. I used the cute SAB stamp set, Hey, Chick. You can get this stamp set by placing a $50 order (before shipping & tax) by March 31, and pick it out as your free SAB item. I CASEd this one from one that Michele Jutrisa made. I love her card, and just had to make one, too!


Dimensions:

  • Real Red:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Early Espresso:  4" x 5-1/4" (base layer)
  • Crumb Cake - 3-7/8" x 5-1/8" (stamped layer)
  • Real Red:  3" x 4" (scallop oval)
  • Early Espresso:  2-3/4" x 3-3/4" (brown oval)
  • Whisper White:  2-1/2" x 3-1/2" (white oval)
  • Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack:  5" and 4" (Real Red ribbon)
Instructions:
  1. Fold the Real Red card base piece in half. Attach the Early Espresso base layer to the top of the card front.
  2. Stamp all three chicken stamps from the Hey, Chick Stamp Set all over the Crumb Cake layer using the Crumb Cake Classic Stampin' Pad. Wrap the 5" Real Red ribbon from the Sending Love Ribbon Combo Pack around the lower part of the Crumb Cake piece, and attach the ribbon ends to the back with SNAIL Adhesive. Attach the Crumb Cake layer to the center of the Early Espresso layer. Tie the 4" piece of Real Red ribbon to the left side of the attached ribbon using a single knot.
  3. Die-cut the smaller Real Red piece with the largest scallop oval die in the Layering Ovals Framelits. Die- cut the smaller Early Espresso piece with the second largest oval die. Attach it to the center of the Real Red scallop oval.
  4. Stamp the chicken looking back stamp onto the middle of the Whisper White piece using the Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the "hey, chick" stamp below the chicken using the same ink pad.
  5. Color the chicken in by brushing a Blender Pen across the stamped image. This will make the ink bleed, and color it in so it looks light brown. Color the feathers on the head with a Blender Pen and a Real Red Classic Stampin' Pad. Color the beak and feet with the Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Pen. Then, color little spots all over the chicken's feathers to make it shine (it's hard to see it glitter from the pictures, but it sure does in person 😊)
  6. Die-cut the chicken out with the third largest oval die. Attach it to the center of the Early Espresso oval. Then, attach it all to the bottom, right of the card using the Stampin' Dimensionals.

Lift Me Up! Meets Carried Away DSP


Today's card is another card that will be made at my Sale-A-Bration Stamp Camp next week. It features the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure, and the Lift Me Up! Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalog. I CASEd this one from one that Angela McKay made. I changed the colors around, used a different DSP design, and used a different greeting, but that's all I changed.



Dimensions:
  • Mint Macaron:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" (card base)
  • Night of Navy:  2-1/4"  4-1/4" (DSP mat)
  • Smoky Slate:  2-3/4" x 3-3/4" (balloon overlay)
  • Night of Navy:  2-3/4" x 1-1/2" (balloon sections)
  • Watermelon Wonder:  2-3/4" x 2" (balloon sections)
  • Peekaboo Peach:  2-3/4" x 2" (balloon sections)
  • Peekaboo Peach:  3-1/4" x 1" (greeting banner)
  • Whisper White:  4-1/4" x 1" (clouds)
  • Carried Away DSP - 2" x 4" (balloon/Whisper White background paper)
Instructions:
  1. Fold the card base in half. Stamp the largest cloud stamp from the Lift Me Up! Stamp Set all over the card front using the Mint Macaron Classic Stampin' Pad.
  2. Attach the DSP to the Night Of Navy mat. Then, Attach it to the right, center of the card.
  3. Die-cut the largest hot-air balloon detail die from the Up & Away Thinlits Die once from the Smoky Slate piece. I suggest using the Precision Base Plate when die-cutting. Use the following sandwich - (starting from the bottom) Big Shot Platform with thin-die adapter, Precision Base Plate, cardstock, die, and Standard Cutting Pad. Keeping the cardstock in the die, run the Die Brush over the die to get all of the little pieces out, and then remove from the die.
  4. Die-cut the first (top), hot balloon stripe die and the squarish die out of the Night of Navy balloon sections piece.
  5. Die-cut the second and fourth balloon stripe dies (begin counting from the top) out of the Watermelon Wonder balloon sections piece.
  6. Die-cut the third and fifth balloon stripe dies out of the Peekaboo Peach balloon sections piece.
  7. Put glue from the Fine-Tip Glue Pen onto the back of the Smoky Slate hot-air balloon die-cut. I put the glue on one section at a time. Attach the coordinating die-cut strips to the balloon. See picture for placement. Turn the balloon back over, and attach it to the left, center of the card.
  8. Punch the left end of the Peekaboo Peach greeting banner with the Banner Triple Punch. Stamp the greeting to the center of the banner using the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Attach it to the bottom of the DSP piece. The right side of the banner should line-up with the right edge of the card base.
  9. Stamp the largest cloud stamp three times onto the Whisper White Cardstock using the Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. Die-cut the clouds out with the coordinating cloud die. Attach them to the card using Stampin' Dimensionals. See pictures for placement.
  10. Put seven of the smallest rhinestones from the Rhinestone Basic Jewels across the hot-air balloon. See picture for placement.
