Camper Christmas with Stampin Up

       Hi Everyone!!   Continuing the Christmas Spirit  this July,  I have a new card using a camper.  My parents went camping this week, so I felt inspired.   This set is in the Annual Catalog carried over from the last years Holiday Catalog.   It is a great set to use for the whole year.  It has sentiments for all season long.  Plus comes in handy for your favorite camper,  we know who that will be in my family, so guess who this card is going to?
       Well getting to it.  This card is the typical A2 size card.  There is a video below for you to watch, and also a supply list below with a  to my stampin up link open 24/7 days week.   If you have any questions or would like a catalog  feel free to email me at www.shanasweetsblog@yahoo.com
        So keeping with Christmas Spirit we start with a piece of thick Whisper White 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 folded in half 4 1/4,  it is easier to score this because it is so thick, but defiantly use your bone folder to get a good crease.   Then layer your Cherry cobbler which I used a thinner layer this time,  4 1/8 x 5 3/8. Then the Garden Green layer on top of this will be my typical 4 x 5 1/4 layer,  I really like that extra pop of color under the layer.   Now before I go placing our Flags on Ifind it easier to stamp our little Christmas tree and snow man in the lower left hand corner of the green corner.  Then you can punch your angles out of the pieces of designer paper that are cut 1, 1 1/4, 1 1/2, in wide, approx 4 in long.  These all are placed to the right of our stamp images in corner.  And our large camper image will be stamped on a piece of thick whisper white 3 1/2 x 2 1/2 paper, and  will be place over the top portion of the card.  I chose to color my image with watercolor pencils and used a blender pen to smooth out.  You can use the water pen, but you are better off with watercolor paper if you do that.  Also if you using watercolor paper you can using ink pap and water pen.  You can color with just markers.  Lastly I stamped out the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler and punched out the the classic label punch and placed at bottom.   I hope you enjoy, this card.

Chefy Birthday with Birthday Delivery

Happy Fathers Day!  Hope everyone is relaxing today, pampering your dads.  I am playing with one of my favorite sets today " Birthday Delivery". I just love the nostalgic nature of these images.   The paper line is fun and bright.  Although I am not using them today you can get the framlits for the stampset and the exciting thing about this set of framelits. They will cut out images in the paper also!

I have a video below for my card if you want to follow along.   Also the supply list below and the link directly to my Stampin Up .  If you have any questions feel free to ask!




I am using whisper white card base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded at 4 1/4.   Crumb cake layer on top is 5 1/4 x 4.  Then striped layer is 3 3/4 x 5,  with smaller designer layer 3 3/4 x 2  1/4  toward the top.  My stamping is being done with Early Espresso ink.  I used largest stitched circle in crumb cake in which I stamped the chef on , and a scalloped circle from layering circles framelits in whisper white.   Now I used a chalk marker and colored in the hat and scarf on the chef, and some balloons on the designer paper, to accent things.  I stamped surprise at the bottom of my striped paper on the card, I added the circles to the card with dimensional.   Stamped happy birthday on the inside, and there I had it a finished card!

Nail It for Fathers Day

Well with Father's Day fast approaching I am working on some Fathers Day Cards and Treats for an upcoming Craft Show.   Really love the Nail It set I bought specifically for Father's Day.  So I am making the most of it. 

Below will be a video tutorial for the card, but I wanted to include the picture above because I had put away the candy bar and had not realized it until the end of the video. 


So the card is an A2 card.  Starts with a Vanilla base 8.5 x 5.5  folded in half.   paper comes from Urban Undergound Designer Series paper, you can check the retiring list to see if any still available. Bottom layer is 4 x 5.25,  with 2 x 5.25  smaller section to go along the bottom. I did use the framelits and   cut out the ruler to use as a border along the top edge.  I picked out various tools to place on the front.  You can fussy cut these if you are just now getting this set.  As I don't believe the framelits are available anymore.  But if you hurry you can still get the stamp set.  But you better hurry as it wont be available for long.

May Sweet Treats Jar of Love

Sorry I am late putting this post out.  Hopefully you follow me on YouTube.  The video has been posted for the last few days.  It will be listed  below also if you haven't seen it.  Please follow.  I will occasional post videos that don't get blog post.  This is the last month to get items from the current Stampin Up.  The items that aren't caring over to the new catalog are listed on the retiring list.  This includes all the designer papers and ribbons!  There are still a some left if you act quickly.  Lots of items are marked down!!!!  Stamps are guaranteed to keep making until May 22, then will be until sold out.




This months Sweet Treat Features JARS OF LOVE.  This is a lovely stamp set that is being carried over to the new catalog and is very versatile.  And what is great you can make shaker cards with the thinlits.  I have included in the sweet treat, but you are going to want to invest in this your self.  It is so much fun!!!    Now the sweet treat is using some dsp that was still available when I typed this but there is some great papers coming out, but trust me you want the paper that on sale too!!   I will link it below if I can.    Oh there is a bonus,  I went to Onstage in April and received a Special Upcoming Stamp and You will receive a Tag made by Me with this Cute Little Piggy On it!




Watermelon Wonder Shaker Card:   Base 8 1/2 x 5  1/2, fold in half at 4 1/4.  Secure window sheet to backside of designer paper. Glue the jar lid to the front of the designer paper.  Stamp the large jar onto window sheet from the front of the designer paper(3 3/4 x 5).  Make sure to use archival ink, and stamp gingerly, not to wiggle it can smudge easily.   Then you can pick any greeting that fits in the jar, I used Hello.  I carefully lined up this layer to the white layer(4 x 5 1/4) to see where I could stamp the fish, if you need to place a dot or something in pencil you can or eyeball it.  Then when you know all the black ink is dry place foam strips on the back of the designer paper.  Place your sequins on the white base.  Then attach your designer paper.  Wrap the ribbon around the bottom and tie a bow in he front.  Then attach this to the card base.




Mint Maccaroon Card: Base 8 1/2 x 5  1/2, fold in half at 4 1/4.  Layer designer paper to card base 5 1/4 x 4. Attach white strip at bottom, (5 x 1 1/2) then layer designer strip on top of white paper, (4 3/4 x 1 1/4).  Stamp medium jar stamp to jar cut out, I used smokey slate ink, then attached it to card.  I stamped leaf stems to jar.  Then I picked the colors I wanted for flower blooms, stamp off first for the solid image then the die cut to get a lighter color, then stamp the accent pieces without stamping it off.  Then Pick a greeting for the banner, I used watermelon wonder for the cardstock , so I used the same ink to stamp in. also to stamp the bow to further accent the bow.  I also used a marker to add more to the jar like the ribbon was going around the jar. This completes the second Jar.
