It All Started Out So Innocently


I've had July 4th on my mind lately. I dug back in my photos and pulled these out from 2006. We were spending time just hanging out in the yard. It all started out so innocently ... and the rest of the silly story is in my journaling box. 

Supplies:

Well Worn Designer Series paper *retired

Directions:

  • My photos are sized to 3 x 3 inches.
  • Early Espresso card stock mat is cut  9 1/2 X 6 1/2.
  • Mount photos leaving space for a long journaling block.
  • Natural Ivory card stock is cut 3 x 6.
  • Using Early Espresso ink largest background stamp in Clockworks stamp set, randomly stamp background. When stamping in the middle be sure to stamp off first before stamping to keep the image light enough so that you can read the journaling.
  • Write journaling.
  • Adhere block to matting.
  • Adhere matting to background paper.

Fast Card Friday - Summer Starfruit


One of our new "In Colors" is Summer Starfruit. It's an interesting color that works with many darker shades, which would be prefect for those difficult male oriented cards. However, today's card is light and summery and FAST.

Tip: I have a TERRIBLE time getting the notch in my banners centered and even. What I've done is made a template for myself using a piece of light weight cardboard and the Pennant punch. I punched a triangular pennant out and use the tip on my banner, mark the spot (on the back of my paper) and trim by hand. So much faster and much better results!


To make a card that looks like mine, you’ll need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.

Supplies:

Patio Party Designer Series paper (the piece with all the different patterns in stripes)
paper trimmer

Directions:

  • Card base is standard size
  • Using a paper trimmer, cut out the strips that are Summer Starfruit colors from the Patio Party DSP piece of paper that is all pattern strips.
  • Using Paper Snip scissors, notch out the banner end on the stripes and cut to desired length.
  • Run a piece of Whisper White card stock (4 x 5 1/4) through the Big Shot in the Fancy Fan embossing folder.
  • Adhere embossed piece to card base.
  • Using a scrap of Whisper White stamp "Live in the sunshine" from the Pursuit of Happiness set using Summer Starfruit ink, punch out with large oval punch.
  • Use the scalloped oval punch to punch out a Summer Starfruit mat.
  • Adhere stamping to mat.
  • To get your banners straight on the top: take a small strip of Whisper White, run a strip of Snail on it. Arrange and adhere banners onto the strip, lining the top edges of  the banners to the top edge of the strip.
  • Adhere banner strip to top left edge of embossed mat.
  • Adhere scalloped oval piece to embossed mat.

Scrapbooking in Rich Razzleberry

Happy Saturday! I sure hope the temperatures where you live are more comfy than here. We're expected to reach into the triple digits this weekend. I have two things to say about that: 1) Please God, don't let us have a repeat of last summer's heat, and 2) I'm staying inside and playing with paper!

Today's scrapbook page came about in an interesting fashion. My daughter & I took her girls out for a photo shoot so we could have some up to date photos of the girls for Father's Day gifts. We went out in the heat & humidity of an Oklahoma summer afternoon and went to a park. While I was using my fancy-pants camera (thanks again sweet Hubby! I love it!), my daughter was using her phone and a cool app called Retro to shoot some photos.

Later while reviewing photos I decide I wanted to scrapbook a great number of them. However, the 4 that I wanted to use didn't all go together. See 1 had the cool retro edging around it and the other 3 were just normal. I didn't have any cool edging brushes for Photoshop and I didn't feel like spending $$$ on something I wasn't sure I'd use again. So I did what any modern scrapbook would do, I went to Google and looked for a free photo editing program on-line that had retro style edges! Found one too: piZap. You can upload your photos, edit and then download again to your computer - for FREE!!! Soooo cool!

After that long winded opening - here's today's page.


To make a page that looks like mine, you’ll need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.

Supplies:



The layout is fairly straight forward.
Photos are 3x3.
Frame was hand cut 8.5 x 8.5 outer frame size.
The frame is a 1/2 inch border on all sides.
Trim edge of Top Note die.
Top Note die was cut out of Whisper White and sponged using Old Olive first in the interior areas and Rich Razzleberry on the outer edges, making sure to ink the edge heavily.
Flowers were punched with the Blossom punch.
Flower edges were inked with coordinating ink.
Flower centers were punched out of Whisper White using the Boho Blossoms punch.
Flower centers were then inked the same as the Top Note die.
Insert brads.
Punch bird out of Rich Razzleberry.
Ink edges of bird in coordination ink.
Adhere assembled bird to inside of Old Olive flower with a dimensional.
Mount flowers with dimensionals.
Write journaling and mount Top Note die over the top of the frame on the right side.


Let's make it easier for our families to enjoy the wonderful photos that we all take. Get them off the computer, out of the boxes in the closet or off the photo card that's sitting in your camera. Make some fun scrapbook pages for your family. They'll love them.

A little something for the 4th

No Fast Card Friday today, instead I'm going to show you a little something for the 4th.




To make a card that looks like mine, you’ll need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.


Supplies needed:
Top Note Die
Perfect Polka-Dots embossing folder
Square Lattice embossing folder
Big Shot
Boho blossoms punch
Sticky Strip
Basic Jewels Rhinestones - I used some star shaped ones that I had on hand
Whisper White card stock
Real Red card stock
Night of Navy card stock
Snail Adhesive

I took a scrap of paper and ran it through the Big Shot and used the negative space to create a template so I'd know the placement for each piece.
Real Red & Whisper White were cut the size of the embossing folder and run through the Big Shot with the Perfect Polka-Dots folder.
Once both pieces were embossed, I cut the strips at just a touch over 1/2".
The Night of Navy piece was cut at approx. 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 and run through the Big Shot in the Square Lattice embossing folder.
Using scrap Whisper White, I cut a couple of plane strips and put Snail Adhesive on one side. On to this I placed my Real Red & Whisper White strips, alternating colors. 
I used my negative of the Top Note Die to see where to place the Night of Navy piece to my liking.
Using a ton of Snail I adhered that in place.
I placed the whole thing carefully on the Top Note Die and ran it through the Big Shot. (the strips of scrap Whisper White on the back held it all in place.
Then, using Sticky Strip on the back in areas that were not secured with the scrap strips, I adhered the piece to a standard card.
Punching out 5 of the smallest flowers on the Boho Blossom punch, I adhered those to in the Night of Navy section and then added my rhinestones.

This was may look a little intimidating, but it really isn't. Take your time and read the directions carefully and it's pretty easy.

Take some time to make something today.

Sponged Sunset


Today's card is pretty simple & straight forward. 
I punched a circle out of a large post-it note using the 2 1/2" circle punch.
Placing the hole from the circle in the center of the Whisper White card stock, I started sponging inside the circle opening. 
Sponge from light colors to dark colors. Remember you can always add more to make a color darker but you can't take away to make it lighter.
Once I was happy with the colors I removed the Post-It Note and stamped the image in Basic Black ink.
When I was sure it was all dry, I mounted the Whisper White on to Cajun Craze.

To make a card that looks like mine, you’ll need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.

Fold Out Gift Card holder

Happy Tuesday! Still working on getting all the cards & gift cards out that need to be in the hands of those celebrating things this month. Here's one of the things I've been working on.

Card closed - obviously not the kind of card to go into a regular envelope for mailing.

Sitting up - you can see the card holder hiding in the background.



All the way open. See how the butterflies extend up to cover part of the area and draw your eye upward?

Another view

To make a card that looks like mine, you’ll need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.


Supplies:
Real Red card stock
Whisper White card stock
scrap Old Olive card stock
Beautiful Wings embosslit
Floral Frames framelits
Apothecary Accents framelits
Create a Cupcake stamp set
Basic Black stamp pad
Bird Punch
Rhinestone brad *retired
white floral wire *local big box craft store
glue dots
hot glue gun
1 /16 hold punch
Sticky tape
Big Shot
Paper Piercer 

Card base is cut 4 1/4 x 11.
Score at 5 1/2 and again at 8 1/4.
Valley fold at 5 1/2
Mountain fold at 8 1/4
ON the mountain fold at 8 1/4, punch 2 small holes
Cut 2 sections of white floral wire to your desired length. Wrap these around a pencil or pen a couple of times and set aside.
After using Whisper White card stock and the Beautiful Wings embosslit to create the number of butterflies that you want, warm up your glue gun. Take 2 of the largest butterflies using hot glue adhere the wire between the butterflies. Do the same for the second wire.
Slide the wires into the holes, adjust the height and angle. Adhere the wires down with a strip Sticky tape. Cover the wires and visible sticky tape with a strip of Real Red card stock using more sticky tape on the back of the cover piece if needed.

Creating the flower:

Using several sizes of framelits from the Fun Flowers framelit set and Whisper White card stock, run through the Big Shot.
Take each flower cut out and round edges using a bone folder, the edge of ruler or even rolling on a pen.
After each flower cut out had been rounded, take the back end of a pen or marker, with the flower cupped in your palm and gently push the center of the flower down into your cupped palm. This helps hold the shape and creates a "well" for the flower pieced to fit into each other. Do this for each flower piece.
Stack the flowers building from largest to smallest.
Pierce the center with the Paper Piercer.
Secure flower with a brad.
Adhere flower using glue dots.
Punch 4 bird wings using Old Olive card stock and Bird punch.
Adhere wings like leaves around base of flower.

Adhere several small butterflies up the right hand edge of of the card using glue dots.

Creating the gift card pocket:


Cut a piece of  Real Red card stock  4 1/2 x 3.
Score at 1/4 along 3 sides.
Crease the score lines and remove the "square" that is created at the corners.
Notch the corners of the "flaps" where the "square" has been removed. This allows for the piece to fold easier and lay flatter.
Along the one long side that IS NOT SCORED, use the 1" circle punch centered along the edge, but only about 1/2 way in, punch a half circle for a space to reach in for the gift card.
With Tombo glue, glue down the "flaps" inside the card up a bit from the mountain fold, being sure to keep the piece centered.

Stamp verse from Create a Cupcake using Basic Black ink on Whisper White card stock.
Center Apothecary Accents label framelit over sentiment, run through Big Shot.
Adhere label with verse to gift card holder.


Insert your gift card and present to the recipient.

Take some time to make something special today.

It's a Guy Thing - review of items from class

Hope you all enjoyed Father's Day!

The focus was on Father's Day and the men in our lives in my class last Thursday. Here's a taste of what we made.


We used some new products and some not so new products.



We also made this cute bag/box.



The bag opens up to reveal a little box inside. The box is small but fits lots of gift items, from candy to gift cards to .... It's only limited by your imagination.

Use It Up!

I needed a gift for my Dad for Father's Day. This guy has everything ... I mean everything! What to do? I was sitting at my desk and my eyes fell on some photos that I was going to scrapbook and a bell went off in my head. Dad doesn't usually get the scrapbookie things I make, those usually go to my Mom. He needed is own little photo goodie that he could show around. So this is what I came up with:

Flip book closed with a belly band.
Items used to create the belly band are all from my stash.

Inside - first flap (left) opened.

Inside - second flap (right) opened.

Inside - third flap (center top) opened.

Inside - last flap (center bottom) opened.

This was a lot of fun to make. I hope he likes it. All the pattern papers are from my stash. I'm working hard to use up my stash! The solid paper is Basic Black card stock from Stampin' Up!

I'll be teaching this as a class in August. Watch for dates!

Your turn to make something fun today!

Product Focus - new firm foam stamp pads


FIRM FOAM STAMPIN' PADS


With the introduction of the 2012-2013 annual catalog, we have made a very big change to our Stampin’ Pads.
Introducing firm foam pads! They change your stamping experience for the better.
We know you’re going to love these new Stampin’ Pads—just look at all the exciting benefits listed below:
  • Provide better ink coverage for your stamps!
  • Light-tap stamping produces flawless images!
In addition, our new Stampin’ Pads
  • Create wonderfully solid images. The Firm Foam releases more ink onto your rubber stamp than the felt pads. When using the Firm Foam pad, your stamp will get an even, solid covering of ink that you may not have been able to achieve with the felt pads. Please note: if you are using the ink pad frequently you may need to re-ink your Firm Foam pad more often.
  • Have a crisply printed, glossy label on the top of the pad that is easier to read and that will not fade or chip off!
  • Come with color name labels in all four languages (English, Spanish, French, and German)--just choose your language, peel it off the back, and add it to the side of the pad for easy identification! 
  • Use the same patented flip-top case design that stores the inking surface upside down, so the pad surface stays moist!
  • Are available in all colors, including our exclusive In Colors!
Let your customers know about these exciting changes to our Stampin’ Pads. Be sure to have at least one on hand so your customers can see and experience for themselves the improved quality of our Stampin’ Up! Stampin’ Pads.
Please note: Five ink colors have undergone formula changes to improve functionality and color stability with the new firm foam pads. These colors are
  • Basic Black
  • Basic Gray
  • Marina Mist
  • Perfect Plum
  • Tempting Turquoise
All five colors of the reformulated inks have been fully tested and approved. While using the new ink formula in the old Stampin’ Pads is fine, we do not recommend using the old ink formula for these five colors in the new firm foam pads. Any refills purchased after April 30, 2012, will contain the new formulated ink.

Graduation Gift Card holders

It's that time of year - graduations, baby showers, weddings and of course birthdays. We've got a little of everything going on here at the Inky Pinky household. We have 2 young cousins that are graduating high school. So I whipped these up to hold the gift cards we're sending.



To make a card that looks like mine, you’ll need the following supplies. Remember, if you need any of these supplies, just click on the name of the item and it will take you directly to my shop.


Supplies:
Layered Labels stamp set (* I used Clear Mount stamps and a Clear Mount Block)
Scrap of white computer paper.
Thread to match vest & cap

Card:

Card base is Basic Black card stock cut at 4 1/2 x 6 1/2, scored at 2 /14.
Punch out owl using Basic Black card stock.
Punch out wings from the Bird Builder punch using Basic Black card stock.
Punch out vest in whichever color you choose.
Cut graduation cap 3/4 x 3/4
Build owl according to photo.
Adhere to scalloped circle and adhere to card.

Cap:

Using Paper Piercer, make hole in center of cap.
Take a small short strip of Basic Black card stock and "fringe" most of it leaving a tiny part that is not. This part needs to be large enough to hold glue.
Take a black brad, place it in the hole in the center, placing the "fringed" piece of black card stock so it sits just under the brad. This creates the tassel. 
Place a dimensional on the back of the cap and set on owl according to the photo.

Stamp Happy Graduation using from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set in black ink on Whisper White card stock.
Using the Modern Label Punch, punch a mat for the sentiment to match the vest & cap.
Adhere these to the card.

Inside of card:

Using Whisper White card stock and ink to match your owl's outfit, stamp "For You" from the Layered Labels stamp set.
Using the Apothecary Accents Framelit that matches the "For You" shape, lay this on the stamped image, being sure that it is centered and covers the stamped image. Run through the Big Shot.
Using the same framelit cut one more piece out of Whisper White for your signature.
Sign and adhere signature piece.

Creating the gift card pocket:

Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock 4 1/2 x 3.
Score at 1/4 along 3 sides.
Crease the score lines and remove the "square" that is created at the corners. 
Notch the corners of the "flaps" where the "square" has been removed. This allows for the piece to fold easier and lay flatter. 
Along the one long side that IS NOT SCORED, use the 1" circle punch centered along the edge, but only about 1/2 way in, punch a half circle for a space to reach in for the gift card.
With Tombo glue, glue down the "flaps" to the inside of the card being sure to keep the piece centered.
Adhere the "For You" shape.

Diploma:

Using a scrap strip of white computer paper, wrap around a small object like a tooth pick. Wrapping tightly. I like to put a tiny bit of adhesive at the beginning edge and then wrap so it doesn't flop around and a bit at the end so it stays shut. Then use a coordinating piece of thread to tie it. Adhere using a bit of Tombow glue.


This really took longer to write than it did to create! LOL Naturally this can be adapted to met your needs using different colors or dressing your owl to met the occasion. 

Take some time to make something today.

Life Gets Busy

We've had a busy time over here at the Inky Pinky household. We held a HUGE garage sale over the weekend with our daughter. What a lot of work, but it did pay off. We did reallllllllly well. Now we're just tired and trying to put the house in some sort of order after cleaning out closets.

I've also gotten to spend quite a bit of time with my daughter and granddaughters. (YAY!) Love doing that. My daughter can be so hysterically fun and who doesn't like too laugh? My granddaughters love to pose for Grandma. So when they are around I usually grab my Nikon and do some photo shoots with the girls.
Here's one from over the weekend that just cracks me up!


Just love the "sincerity" of those "air kisses". LOL 

I've got some cards & things to post for the rest of the week. So check back and see what I made in between the bits & pieces of life.
