Inkyfingers Papercrafting

Posts Tagged ‘bird ballad

I love using Stampin’ Up! products to make and send cards to all my special friends and family, but there are so many other creative projects I can make as well! Using cardstock, ink, and paper to create beautiful 3D gift items is super fun, and terrifically useful as the holidays approach (hello stocking stuffers!).

On Saturday, August 24th I am offering a special class where we will create six small gift items. The $35 workshop fee includes a pack of 12 x 12” Designer Series Paper of your choice, which I will cut, score, and prepare for you so you are ready to create all these fabulous items at the class. You will also get to take home a full-colour tutorial package so you can recreate all these projects on your own! The registration deadline is Thursday, August 8th, so sign up today!

This post-it note holder is a great item to have on hand in your purse, your car, your backpack – always ready for you to jot down a quick note, shopping list, or phone number.

The self-closing box is a fun and creative way to package a small gift! The box and lid are attached, which makes the whole project quite sturdy.

I love this adorable little star-shaped treat holder, the perfect size for a Ferrero Rocher or other round chocolate!

The DSP mini-purse is one I just had to create, as I find them so adorable and versatile. These could hold a whole cellophane bag full of goodies!

This triangle treat box is a really fun and simple design, with no cutting necessary. Perfect for chocolate nuggets or other small treats!

This square chocolate treat holder is one I often give to my workshop attendees or party guests, who have asked for it to be included in our workshop. It’s the perfect size to hold a Ghiradelli chocolate square!

These items are great for hostess gifts, table favours, stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, craft fairs, and more. I hope you’ll join me at the class – but if you can’t attend, don’t worry! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements!

I learned how to make this lovely card at a recent demonstrator meeting, where my friend Carolyn encouraged us to “let the DSP do the talking” for this simple yet striking design. The only hard part about this project is figuring out which Designer Series Paper to use; Carolyn used Perennial Essence for her project, and I’ve chosen Bird Ballad.

(Note: If you prefer video tutorials, click here! If you prefer written tutorials, read on!)

Cardstock: 5-1/2 x 7-1/4″; score at 3″
DSP: 2-3/8 x 4-7/8″
White frame for DSP: 2-3/4 x 5-1/4″

White insert for inside card: 4 x 5-1/4″; stamp a simple design on the right side of this piece. It will be visible whether the card is open or closed!

The finishing touch is to add a stamped sentiment on the front panel. I chose one from the Free as a Bird stamp set, and used the 2″ Circle punch to cut it out, adding a 2-1/4″ circle punched from the same colour as my cardstock base to frame it.

This week’s Stampin’ Sunday video will show you how to make a peekaboo card. This is a great way to “let your DSP do the talking,” as my friend and fellow demonstrator Carolyn says!

You’ll need:

Cardbase: 5-1/2 x 7-1/4″; score at 3″
DSP: 2-3/8 x 4-7/8″
Cardstock frame for DSP: 2-3/4 x 5-1/4″
White insert: 4 x 5-1/4″

Scrap + colured cardstock to add sentiment

A few weeks ago, I received this card in a swap from another demonstrator, Tanya Sousa. I had seen this fold on Pinterest, etc. but wasn’t too fussed about it … then I saw it in person and immediately fell in love (of course, it doesn’t hurt that Tanya used one of my favourite new DSPs, Bird Ballad!) One of the cool things about this layout is that it gives you a really easy way to show both sides of the gorgeous paper. Here’s how to make it!

Tanya

Cut your DSP to card front size (4 x 5.25″).

Line it up in your trimmer at 2-5/8″. Cut from 1-1/2″ to the edge.

bird3

Fold back both sides and crease with your bone folder.

bird2

Decorate your card as desired.

How simple is that?!
