Adhesive Tips – Tutorial Video and PDF File for your Reference

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Do you ever wonder which adhesive to use?  Or how to use it?

Stampin’ Up! offers a range of adhesives, and each has its advantages and purpose. I’ve created two resources that I hope will be of use to all adhesive users:

  1.  A video tutorial on how to use each of the STampin’ Up! adhesives.   I admit it – I’m a bit OCD and I want you to get the best value out of your resources.  I held an event recently and was surprised to find all three pairs of my scissors absolutely stuck shut by improper use of adhesives. I hope this video will answer a few questions and help you get more value out of your products:

 

 

 

2. I’ve also created a downloadable PDF file all about Adhesives. Here I’ve detailed out the pros and cons of each as well as provided a chart with suggestions for “best use” situations for each adhesive.   Of course, this list is not 100% comprehensive, but I think will cover the general paper crafter’s questions:

Stampin’ Up! Adhesive Reference Sheet

 

I hope you find both of those resources useful and helpful!   I do keep my ears open when I am teaching.  I want to know what you want to know!  If there is a resource you’d like to see, please feel free to let me know and I will put it on the list.

 

Thanks for stopping in to see me today!    If you need any adhesives, you can order them at any time by emailing me or by using my Online Shop.

P.S. Tomorrow I am heading over to Tauranga for an Egg Carton Box Class – I have 3 spots that could be filled. Please join us!mailto:mail@stamphappy.co.nz

P.P.S. This weekend is our big OnStage training days. This is where Stampin’ Up! corporate offers training and new product introduction for the upcoming catalogue in June!  We are all so excited to see what’s coming – can’t wait to share with you when we are allowed to share publicly!

Cake Crazy Birthday Card Club – Kits Available and Video Tutorial!

Everyone loves a fun, happy birthday card that is quick to put together!   I loved this Cake Crazy stamp set from the moment it was introduced to us at our Stampin’ Up! OnStage training last November.

Today I want to share with you a bright birthday card that I think just about anyone at any age would enjoy:

 

Oh how fun it was to build up that cake in different colours!   I had several goes at it – all of which look great, but this version is my favorite for now.

The Cake Crazy cake layers are designed to be on a lean, so you can create your cake to be somewhat straight or go deliberately on a lean.  It definitely has a Dr. Seuss look to it.

I chose to go bright and rainbow, but of course,  this project could be done in more subdued colours to create an entirely different look. I think I will give that a go soon.

 

Please watch and enjoy the video below!  This is just me stamping at home sharing with my fans!

I have made up some packs for kits which include the card base, the whisper white panels, the basic black panels, the strips of black and white paper (may be some different prints too), black twine, and the black sequins. You need to provide the stamps and the inks (or order them).

I do hope you enjoy!  Happy creating!

Cool Treats DEBossed Birthday Card + Tutorial Video!

Happy Wednesday!  Today I want to share with you a project I’ve wanted to try for a while now – a debossed card using one of my favorite stamp sets: Cool Treats.

I love how fun and fresh these images are!

This project starts out using the Celebrations Duo Embossing Folders to create a valley on the Whisper White cardstock.  On this sample I’ve used Pear Pizzazz, So Saffron, and Pool Party.

I did a few different colour versions to show that this can be done for either gender or any age.  For someone more sophisticated, I’d choose very soft colours, for example.   But who doesn’t like ice blocks or at least have warm memories eating one?

 

This colour combination is So Saffron, Pool Party, and Watermelon Wonder.  I’ve also switched the card base to Pool Party.

All the images are from the Cool Treats stamp set.  This can also be bundled with the dies for a discount, which are very useful for future projects.

This project is March’s Birthday Club project – purchase kits of this project, pre-cut and ready to go!  You can purchase just the kits or with the stamps, dies, and folder!

 

And please enjoy this video tutorial!

Check Out My Pants!

Tricksofthetrade

As promised, here are the pants (trousers!) I stamped over the summer.  It was a lot of fun and very cool to alter the fabric like this.   For this project, I used the large flourish stamp from Baroque Motifs.

Stampin-up-stamping-on-fabr
Unfortunately, although I drafted up the pattern to fit me, I drew it up last October when I was about to compete. So, I will have to give myself another month or so before I can get my bottom into this pair. Not so clever of me.

Stampin-up-pants-pocket
 It was a little tricky to get these two patterns to match with the pocket, but it's a patch pocket, so I had a little play.

Stampin-up-antique-brad-but
It took me a couple days of pondering to figure out how I could use those fabulous Antique Brads as a button.  In the end, I cut the legs of Brad and hot glued him to a an existing button shank.  I'll have to be gentle with it, but it will work great.  So no cookies when I'm wearing these.

Stampin-up-pants-yoke

I love how the back turned out!  I'm glad I stamped on the yoke bit, too. 

Stampin-up-pants-back-pocke
I used my bedazzler (I know, very 80's) and blinged up the flourish a bit.  Who doesn't love a few rhinestones on their bottom?

To see how to stamp on fabric, check out my video tutorial!

Hope you enjoyed and feel inspired to try your stamps on something new!

This is a very very cute project taken from a swap from convention.  The swap is not mine, so I don't have a name to give credit (If someone does, please add a comment), but it's darn cute.  Thanks so much for creating this!
