If you've had a chance to look at the new Stampin' Up catalogue you'll notice a few samples of open ended envelopes like this one. They're very simple to make and you can follow this formula to make one any size you need. It's a great way to use up that retired DSP. Multiply the with of your card by 2 and add 1-1/2". This is how wide your DSP or card stock needs to be. For an envelope with 1" flaps measure the length of your card and add 2-1/4". This is how long your DSP or card stock needs to be. Score 1" across the top and bottom as well as 1/8" on each side of the card. If this is as clear as mud I've included a video tutorial.
I really dislike altering items for other people. It's way too much pressure. If it's my own and I ruin it I can throw it out and pretend it never happened. My cousin asked me to personalize this guest book for her parents' anniversary. Do you know how difficult it is to put lettering on satin after it's already been made into a book? After I experimented on this poor book for several hours I cut a sheet of glimmer paper large enough to hide my mess. I cut a window sheet down and ran it through my printer to get the lettering. It came out perfect. I stamped on the 60th with Black Stazon, cut the window sheet the same size as the glimmer paper and attached it with Big Shot adhesive (LOVE that stuff!!!). The Big Shot Adhesive covers the entire piece of glimmer paper so the adhesive doesn't show at all because there's no variation. I slid the whole thing under the ribbon, attached it to the guest book with some crystal effects and said "NEVER AGAIN!!!"
Oh and BTW I used Red Glimmer paper because my cousin told me the stone for the 60th anniversary is Ruby. It's not. I looked it up after I finished the guest book. The stone is diamonds so I'll just keep my mouth shut and no one will know that's what I was going for.
I LOVE this DSP!!! This print in particular is my favorite. I used the Itty Bitty Punch Pack Flower to punch flowers in the 1" squares. I backed the squares with card stock scraps in a variety of colors then attached them to the card with dimensionals. I coated the flowers with Crystal Effects and added a banner and some rhinestones.
WOOHOO! It’s time for another PUNCH ART CLASS!!! I’ve been planning some all occasion punch art cards to coincide with the release of the new 2013-2014 Stampin’ Up Catalogue. The main focus of this class is on the 4 new punches; the Hexagon, Pansy, Mosaic and Artisan Label. All of punches for the class will be available in the new catalogue
You’ll get instructions to make 22 Punch Art Cards that you can use throughout the year. There’s a card to suit every sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set. Since the sentiments are stamped on punched pieces and not on the card itself the sentiments are interchangeable. You can wait to add the sentiment when you use the card or leave it blank.
Here are the details
For those of you who like videos I’ve included a video tutorial for each card.
If you like keeping it quick and simple I’ve included a cheat sheet and card sample for each Punch Art card right in with the step by step written instructions.
The step by step instructions also include a list of suggested sentiments, a supply list, punching instructions and card stock measurements.
The cost of this class is $25 CAD (at today’s exchange rate that's approximately $23.73 USD)
Please note: This class is available to everyone. Although I design my classes with Stampin' Up demonstrators in mind you don't need to be a demonstrator to order it. And the class is online so it doesn't matter where you live.

Here's the new Stampin' Up punch that everyone is most excited about. We have a Hexagon!!! Or at least we will on May 31 when the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up Catalogue goes live. Here are a couple of ideas for the Hexagon Punch. These two samples are from my All Occasions Punch Art Class coming May 22. They were so quick and easy I'm going to use them for some of my convention swaps.
One of the other new punches that will be coming out in the 2013-2014 Stampin' Up Catalogue is the Artisan Label Punch. Not only does it coordinate with some of the new stamps it's a great shape for punch art too. Here are a couple more cards from my upcoming All Occasions Punch Art Class. These two punch art cards use the Artisan Label Punch.
I LOVE NEW PUNCHES!!! I can't wait to show you my latest Online Punch Art class; All Occasions Punch Art Class featuring the four new punches from Stampin' Up’s 2013-2014 annual catalogue. Don’t worry, the class features lots of old favorites too but if you’re looking for some ideas for the Hexagon,Pansy, Mosaic and Artisan Label Punches join me May 22. Here’s a sneak peak at a couple of punch art cards using the Mosaic Punch. I’ll be posting more samples and details about the class over the next few of days.
I have the best Dad ever! Look what he made me for mother's day. Wasn't that sweet? I have a space at the back of my shelf so he made ink pad holders to hang down the back which means I can move them around if I need to. On the top there's a spot to hold my reinkers which can be displayed on 3 levels making it easy to see the labels. Do I have the best Dad ever or what?
Here's another Simply Pressed Clay creation. I used one of the framelits from Secret Garden to make this flower. I placed the framelit on my silicone pad, presseed the clay inside the framelit as if it were a mold then put it in the freezer for 30 minutes. When I took the flower out of the framelit I set in the lid of a water bottle to dry so it wouldn't be flat. The button is colored with a So Saffron marker.
