#StampinUp - Multicoloured Seasonally Scattered

Hi Everybody!

This tutorial is from Stampin Up Sam Donalds blog www.pootles.co.uk .
It is one of my favorites blogs.

I'm going to order this stamps from ebay or Amazon as soon they are available!

Ah, the season of Autumn will be upon us soon. It brings chilly nights and warm fires and cosying up in thick jumpers, but it also brings those beautiful colours that just seem to shout Autumn!

I used my Stampin’ Write Markers to get the colours all over the stamp set, and they just look so pretty!

My base is Cherry Cobbler and that’s what I sponged up with, but like my alliteration card from a week or so back, I’ve used a variety of colours, but this time included Crushed Curry which I’d forgotten before….

And then I embellished with the new Autumn Wooden Embellishments.  They’re such a cool product aren’t they?!?!?

So what do you think?  I love the other 2 stamps in the set and reckon they’ll get a fair amount of use this year!

kuvertkortstutorial - Envelope #Tutorial

Det kan då kännas allt för självklart för den som skapar beskrivningen, men för den som ska läsa sig till resultatet via beskrivningen och aldrig har gjort det innan kan det som känns naturligt bli till ett mindre mysterium ;)
Så här kommer en mer utförlig beskrivning ♥

Beskrivning/Tutorial:
1. Välj ett enfärgat papper (cardstock = CS) och ett valfritt mönstrat papper.
2. Börja med det enfärgade pappret. Gör små markeringar på mitten av alla fyra sidor.
3. Lägg en linjal på två markeringar och biga/markera där det ska vikas.
4. Så här ser det ut när alla fyra hörn ha fått sina "linjer".
5. Vänd nu på ditt CS så att baksidan visas uppåt.
6. Ta bort etiketten (sånt som jag personligen glömmer och får pilla med efteråt)
7. Börja vika alla hörn in mot mitten. Ju mer noggrann man är här desto bättre blir slutresultatet.
8. Resultatet bör nu se ut såhär. På de invikta flikarna syns ny den strukturerade framsidan.
9. Vik nu på mitten
10. Försök att få det så jämnt som möjligt.
11. Vik ihop och se till att det blir rakt innan du fortsätter.
12. Pressa nu nederkanten så att det blir en platt vikt kant nertill.
13. Ta nu toppfliken från baksidan och fäll den rakt upp som på bilden.
14. vik den över "kuvertlocket på framsidan.
15. Nu finns två "lock" på framsidan av kuvertet. (låt det vara så. limma inte ännu)
16. När man öppnar kortet så ser det ut så här på "insidan".

17. Ta nu ditt mönstrade papper. Obs: om ditt papper har mönster där det syns vad som är upp och ner så se till att uppåt på ditt papper ligger såsom på bilden. Mitt finger pekar på ovankanten av mitt mönstrade papper.
Nu kan du antingen skära din framsida exakt lika stor som kuvertet eller så som jag valt att göra: Lite mindre än själva kuvertet så att det blir en liten ram bakom ditt mönstrade papper.
Mina mått: 4 inch x 8 1/4 inch.
18. Avskuren remsa 4 inch (x 12 inch)
19. Skär av remsan så att längden blir 8,25 inch (8 och 1/4 inch)
20. Skär till en likadan remsa till (som sen blir din baksida) 
21. Lägg Den ena remsan uppepå kuvertet och gör en liten markering i mitten (där spetsen på kuvertlocket är)
22. Skär från mitten ut mot ett av hörnen. Jag har lagt en linjal där skärlinjen kommer att hamna för att det ska synas tydligare.
23. Dags att skära.
24. Gör nu likadant på andra sidan. (nästa bild visar hur det blir)
25. Du har nu tre bitar till framsidan och en till baksidan.
26. För säkerhets skull, lägg bitarna på plats och dubbelkolla att dom passar.
(har man skurit lite snett så är det lättare att fixa nu innan dom sitter på plats)
27. Välkomna fram stansar och edgescraper.
28. Jag skarpade alla kanter runt om. (såklart valfritt ;))

29. Tog en spillbit och stansade runt kanterna.
30. Kollar för säkerhets skull att biten passar mitt kuvert.
31. Dags att fästa första bandet. Vik upp översta fliken och fäst bandet på den undre med tejp eller lim.
32. Limma/tejpa ihop lockdelarna med den stansade delen i mitten.
33. Dags att limma på det mönstrade pappret.
34. Jag valde att ta spillbitarna och stansa ut en liten etikett.
35. Limmar sen en bit enfärgat papper på baksidan av mitt mönstrade papper för att kunna skriva på lite lättare sen.
36. Kollar av att den passar i kuvertet.
Efter detta klistrar jag sen på mitt mönstrade papper på baksidan. Men först fäster jag band nummer två på mitten på baksidan. Sen det mönstrade pappret ovanpå. Se till att banden kommer på samma ställe så att du sen kan knyta ihop dem till en rosett.
37. Jag väljer att ha min mönstrade sida synlig istället.
~Nu tid att dekorera~
Självklart väljer man sina dekorationer precis som man vill efter smak och tycke.
Jag valde att dekorera med bla liljorrosorpinsglasgrenar och bling.

Hoppas nu att denna tutorial fungerar att följa för den som vill :)
Jag avslutar med att önska er alla en fortsatt fin, kreativ och underbar dag!


Happy Creation;) Anki J

#Spellbinders Dove of Peace

Flowers, Ribbons and Pearls: Dove of Peace: Hi Everybody, This little card is created from   Spellbinders Labels Four     which is an older die. But there is a  video tutorial tha...

Duct tape #tutorial

Hi Everybody,

So here´s a little tutorial on how to make the inspirational duct tape card for the tape challenge at The Flying Unicorn.


Use a 2 inch wide duct tape that you taped on two pieces of aquarelle paper (2×6).


Ran the two pieces through your die-cutter, using the Scrollwork die from Tim Holtz. Make sure you get the two patterns opposite each other.




Then ran them through an embossing folder (Sizzix texture fades collection).




Use alcohol ink Lettuce and Copper mixative, or at your choise.


Add some colour to the alcohol ink applicator. Note. This is NOT the same as an ink blending tool. The tool itself is the same, but the ink applicator uses felt while the ink blending tool uses foam. Shake your mixative well and add some mixative to the applicator.


Then add some ink blending solution and start apply the colours to the die.




Cut three pieces of paper, one black 6×12 (fold into 6×6), one white 5.75×5.75 and one black 5.5×5.5.


Stampe a little cocky text with a Tim Holtz stamp and add copper eyelets in the corners.


I assembled everything on the 5.5×5.5 paper. Unfortunately I can´t show you how I made the wheels since they´ve been in a drawer for some time now. But I remember how I made them, so here´s a short explanation… Unfortunately I can´t show you how I made the wheels since they´ve been in a drawer for some time now. But I remember how I made them, so here´s a short explanation…



Spray Glimmer Mist English Ivy on parts of the wheels and the rest of it with Glimmer Mist Coffee Shop. Add clear Utee powder while it´s still wet and heat with an embossing tool. I made mine “roll” away from the heat on purpose to make it look like they are wet. I didn´t want the powder to look like regular embossing powder.

Tea light #card – Maja Design #tutorial

Hi Everybody!

I’ve promised you a tea light card tutorial for quite some time now. I’m sorry that
I’ve kept you waiting, but here it finally is.
Today I’m going to give you a detailed walk through on
how to make this card using the Maja Design Vintage Winter collection.


Inside


Tea light cards are really fun to make and make great gifts. You can make them all year around and put candy in them instead of tea lights. If you have a 6×6 patterned paper pad you’ll definitely have a great afternoon.
 
You will need…
Cardstock
        9 9/16 x 6 (24,3 x 15,3 cm)
        7 7/8 x 8 5/8 (20×22 cm)
Patterned paper (I’ve used Vintage Winter 6×6 pad by Maja Design for this tutorial)
Scoring board (or use your trimmer to score, works just as fine)
Spellbinder dies or similar
Ribbon
6 tealights
Distress Ink or similar to chalk the edges
Stamps (all stamps in this tutorial are from the Vintage Winter collection by Maja Design)
Decorations (flowers etc)
Edge punch (optional)

So let’s get going!

Start on the largest piece of cardstock (9 9/16 x 6) to make the cover. Score it by 4 5/8 (11 cm) from each side. I have used an edge punch (Martha Stewart Stars) for the border.


Take out the second piece of cardstock (7 7/8 x 8 5/8) and score the longest side on 3 1/4, 3 15/16, 7 1/16, 7 7/8. (8, 10, 18, 20 cm.)


Score the short side of the paper by 3/4,  1 9/16, 6 5/16, 7 1/16. (2, 4, 16, 18 cm)


Cut away the extra paper in the corners.


Cut the flips.


Distress all the visible edges. I’ve used Distress Ink Walnut Stain.


We are now going to make a hole in the box to make the tea lights visible. There are several ways to do this, I’m going to show how I’m doing it with my Cuttlebug.


First I make a cross on the backside to get the middle of the paper where the hole will be. I put my Nestabililties die on the paper and fasten it with some tape.


I take my A and C plate and put them upon the backside of the box.


I gently fold the box over the A and C plate so I get the die visible.


Then I add my B plate on top of it and run the whole package through my Cuttlebug. In that way I get a perfect hole, even though the paper is larger then the plates.

You can use a die as a template and draw on the inside of the box and then use scissors to cut out the hole if you want to. If you don’t have a die cutting machine you can use whatever shape you like as a template and draw on the inside and then cut it out with scissors as well.

If you want to you can add the patterned paper to the box before you make the cutting and get a perfect hole in that too. I prefer to make the cardstock a bit visible and therefor use two different dies for the hole. One oval for the cardstock and one scalloped oval for the patterned paper.

You’ll need the following patterned papers for the box
3×4.5 (7,5 x 11,5 cm)
2 pieces of 0.5×4.5 (1,5 x 11,5 cm)
2 pieces of 0.5×3 (1,5 x 7,5 cm)
You can fit them all into one piece of 6×6 patterned paper.


Add a piece of 3×4.5 overhead paper on the inside of the box to make a window.This will prevent the tea lights from falling out. You can also use at gelatine leaf, it’s a bit more decorative.

Tip! Don’t throw away the cut out pieces from the window. They make an excellent decoration on the cover. I’ve used them on the cover on this particular tea light card.

Glue the long side of the flap so you can fold it to a box with two openings.


Now it’s time to fix the inside and cover of the box. The sizes of the patterned papers depends on what kind of punch you’ve used, or if you’ve used any at all. The sizes that I’ve used are based on the Martha Stewart Stars punch.

You will need the following patterned papers for the inside of the cover
2 pieces of  3 5/8 x 5 5/8 (9,2 x14,3 cm). 4 1/8 x 5 5/8 (10,5 x 14,3 cm) if you haven’t used an edge punch.
1 piece of 13/16 x 5 5/8 (2 x 14,3 cm)


For the pocket on the left side you will need…

Cardstock 3.5 x 3 5/8 (8,9 x 9,2 cm)
Patterned paper 3.25 x 3 3/8 (8,3 x 8,6 cm)
Some paper for the tag. I have cut out one of the postcards from the 12×12 die cut sheet (Vintage Winter collection).


You will need the following patterned papers for the outside of the cover
2 pieces of  3 5/8 x 5 5/8  (9,2 x14,3 cm) 4 1/8 x 5 5/8 (10,5 x 14,3 cm) if you haven’t used an edge punch.
1 piece of 13/16 x 5 5/8 (2 x 14,3 cm)

Attach a ribbon (I used about 0,8 yd or 75 cm) before gluing the patterned papers.


Now it’s time to attach the box. I recommend that you use a strong glue for this since it is quite heavy. I’ve used the same amount of ribbon that I put under the box before gluing it.

All that is left now is decorating the box. Here’s how my turned out… Once again…

I’ve used 3D foam for the stars to get a more dimensional effect.


I’ve used the following decorations…

Distress Markers for colourizing the Maja stamp
Antique Linen
Brushed Corduroy 
Vintage Photo
Walnut Stain  
Pumice Stone
Weathered Wood
Stormy Sky
Wild Honey
Fired Brick

Stars have been cut out from the 6×6 Vintage Winter pad. 
All flowers by Wild Orchid Crafts.
All ovals are Nestabilities dies.

Here are some other examples of tea light cards I’ve made in the past, just for inspiration…






I hope you got inspired!
