Craft Roulette #140 - SIT STAY RELAX Spanner Card


Hello, and welcome! I created this card for Craft Roulette Episode #140. I used the cute Host Set, SIT STAY RELAX from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

You can watch the replay HERE.

The parameters for this week were:

1. Spanner Card

2. Vintage Colors

3. Outside

4. Textile

Although I've made a Spanner Card before, I had to look it up to remind me how to make one. There are several tutorials, and these cards can be made in many different ways.

I started with a Night of Navy A2 Card Base. To make the sides, you cut 1 1/4" from the bottom of the front to the middle fold on both sides. Add designer paper strips to both sides, then add a 1 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece across the back of each split layer. This piece can be added anywhere. 

My image was colored with Stampin' Blends, and is cut out with one of the So Sweetly dies.. I added some Vellum, and Mossy Meadow leaves punched out with the Bough Punch. The sentiment from SIT STAY RELAX is cut out with the small oval die from the Mini Pocket Envelope Die Set. 

This was a fun card to make! I hope you will give a Spanner Card a try.

Square Bottom Treat Bags

Stampin' Up! shared this great treat bag pattern on their Facebook Page a while back, so I thought I would share it with you all. It is by one of the talented designers on the Artisan Team, but I don't remember which one.

I made two following the design. One is vertical, and will sit on the bottom square, and the other one is horizontal. Both tags were die cut using the Tailor Made Tags Die Set. I used products from the Storybook Gnome Collection for the one below. The little gnomes are fussy cut from the designer paper. These products are retiring January 4, 2023.

I used some lovely, new products from the Fitting Florets collection for the next treat bag. These goodies will be available in the new Mini Catalog that goes live January 5, 2023.

As you can see, these treat bags can be made with any pretty papers for any occasion. I hope you will give them a try. Thanks for stopping by!

Textured Chic And Rustic Harvest Loaded Envelopes

I'm sharing two Loaded Envelopes today. I used the beautiful Textured Chic paper for the first one, and Rustic Harvest for the second. They are so fun to make, fill, and gift! I followed a video by the Posh Paper Lady on YouTube.
Since making these these, I have seen many more Loaded Envelope videos that are even more simple. Just search Loaded Envelope in YouTube.

These envelopes only take one piece of double sided 12" x 12" designer paper. They make great gifts for any season, any reason. I hope you'll give one a try!

Thanks for stopping by!

Craft Roulette #139 - Enjoy Your Day

Hello, and welcome! I made this Clean & Simple card for last Friday's, November 18th, Episode #139 of the Craft Roulette Show on You Tube. You can watch the replay HERE.

The parameters for this week were:

1. Birthday Card

2. Three Bright and Cheery Colors

3. Pots, Pans, or Bowls

4. Blocks

I used several stamp sets for this card. The flowers are from Flowers of Friendship, the little tag from Amazing Year, and the flower pot from Simply Succulents. I colored the flowers, and pot with Stampin' Blends. The paper strip is a Tahitian Tide scrap from the 6" x 6", 2022 - 2024 In Color Paper Pack. 

The was such a quick, and easy card to make, but I love the results.

Hues Of Happiness 2023 Calendars

Hello, and welcome. I am starting off early making my 2023 Calendars. Today I am sharing a few I made with the beautiful Hues Of Happiness Designer Series Paper. The sentiment is from the Dragonfly Garden Stamp Set, cut out with a Layering Circles Die, then attached to a Label Me Lovely Punched piece. 

I added a few sprigs to each one using the Bough Punch, and finished with some Brass Butterfly Embellishments, and Bumblebee Trinkets. The mini tear-off calendars are from Tailored Expressions.

These calendars are fairly easy to make. Start with a piece of card stock that measures 4 1/4" x 11". Score at 5 1/2", and fold in half just like making a regular A2 Size Card. Use a piece of 4" x 4" card stock for the stand. Score it at 1/2", 2", and 3 1/2". Mountain fold the middle, and Valley fold the ends. Add Tear & Tape to the 1/2"  ends, and attach to the middle bottom of the card. 

Decorate as desired. I used a  piece of 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" of Hues Of Happiness Designer Series Paper on mine, but you could certainly use and size to fit your base. 

Thank you for joining me today! I will be back with more calendar designs soon.
