Stampin' Dreams - Scraps





Time for another Stampin' Dreams Blog Hop!  Our theme this month is Scraps.  I created this card as part of a sketch challenge.  It's a great way to use up your scraps - in this case I'm using scraps of the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper.  This is one of my favourites in the Mini catalogue and the colour combination of Evening Evergreen and Mango Melody is definitely a favourite.

What do you think?


Instructions

  1. Cut Evening Evergreen card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold on the score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Mango Melody card stock 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to the card base.
  3. Cut Evening Evergreen card stock 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
  4. Emboss using the Gingham embossing folder.
  5. Adhere to the card base.
  6. Cut strips of Designer Series Paper - 4 pieces 1/2" x 3 1/2" and 2 pieces 3/4" x 3"
  7. Adhere the strips randomly to card base - overlapping and at different angles.  You can reverse paper and have different patterns.
  8. Cut Basic White card stock 1" x 3"
  9. Stamp sentiment using Evening Evergreen ink.
  10. Adhere to the card base using Dimensionals.
  11. Adhere Brass Butterflies
  12. Tie a small bow from ribbon
  13. Adhere to the card base.
  14. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  15. Stamp tulip in bottom right using Mango Melody ink for flower and Evening Evergreen in for stem and leaf.
  16. Adhere to the inside of the card.

Tutorial Bundle for the Ukraine

In response to the ongoing crisis, the Creativity Abounds Team has decided to create a Ukraine Fundraising Card Making Tutorial Bundle. 



Who Are we?

The Creativity Abounds Design Team is a group of 13 Independent Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world. We come together every month to create a Tutorial Bundle, hold a blog hop and also host regular online Stamp Camps.

All 13 members of the Creativity Abounds Design Team quickly expressed their interest in helping to bring together this special, additional Tutorial Bundle. As this newsletter is sent, work is underway around the world to get cards designed and tutorials written and compiled.

We didn’t want to wait to start raising money though, because this is timely and help is needed now. Therefore the bundle is up for sale now. You can start to order and pay for yours and the tutorial will follow as quickly as we can bring it together. We envision it will be with you by the week beginning 21st March!

The theme for the projects is blue/yellow. I am excited to see what ideas everyone comes up with. I know they are all going to inspire you in your card making – and of course you will be able to change the colour of the projects to suit other occasions.

All the proceeds from the sale of these tutorials will be donated to the International Committee of the Red Cross as a contribution from the crafting community to the work they are carrying out with the people of Ukraine.

Stampin’ Up’s Statement of the Heart reads:

To LOVE what we do and SHARE what we love.
As we help others enjoy creativity and worthwhile accomplishments.
In this we MAKE A Difference.

The Creativity Abounds Design Team hope that in sharing what we love with you, together we might make a small difference. 

How Can I Help?

Purchase your Tutorial Bundle now and we will deliver it to your in box as soon as it is available. We hope you enjoy all the projects inside.
Don’t hesitate to email me if I can help with your purchases, or if you have a crafty question.
