Child’s Owl Birthday Card

Make this fun Child’s Birthday Card for an Owl Lover.  Owls are quite trendy with both children and adults.  This card can be given to anyone who loves Owls.  This Owl Card is going to my 3 year-old grandson.
Elijah's Owl Birthday Card 2014

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  Itty Bitty Banners w#132022  c#126257
Ink:  Bermuda Bay
Basic Black Marker
Card Stock:  Bermuda Bay
Gumball Green
Whisper White
Baked Brown Sugar
Whisper White
Pumpkin Pie
Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper #130145
Big Shot:  Designer Frames #123130
Bitty Banner Framelits #129267
Punches:  Owl  #118074
1-1/4″ Scallop Circle #127811
Other:  Fringe Scissors #133325
Paper Snips #103579
Simply Scored #122334
Baker’s Twine or Ribbon (I used some from the 2014 Sale-a-bration Sweet Sorbet Accessory Pack #133522 FREE with a $50 purchase until March 31, 2014.)
Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue
Sticky Strip

INSTRUCTIONS:
Note:  This card is going to a 3 year-old so I am adhering everything with Tombow Glue.  You can use the adhesive of your choice.
1.
 Let’s put together our Owl first.
~Punch your Owl and 1-1/4″ Scallop Circle from Baked Brown Sugar card stock.  Cut your Scallop Circle in half to use for the wings.  Trim off the feet.
~Punch the lower part of the Owl body from Pumpkin Pie.  You need just enough body to attach behind the Owl to allow the feet to stick out.
~Punch the Vest out of Gumball Green card stock.  Use your Simply Scored Tool and score lines across the vest at 1/8″ intervals-every line.  Glue onto Owl Body.
~Cut a small Pumpkin Pie triangle for your Owl Beak.  Glue it on above the “V” in the vest.
~Punch two Whisper White eyes.  I used the medium circles on the Owl Punch.  Glue onto your Owl face, lapping over the Beak if necessary.  Color the eyes with Black Marker so your Owl is looking in the direction you want him to.
~Now glue your wings to the back of your Owl in the desired position.  (You can also wait and do this later if desired.)
2.  Emboss your Designer Frame in Bermuda Bay card stock.  Trim around the edges with Scissors or Paper Snips.
3.  Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock at 1-7/16″ x 2″ and glue inside your Designer Frame.
4.  Now let’s glue our Owl onto the Whisper White inside the Designer Frame.  Add the wings now if you haven’t.  You can also cut a Party Hat from the Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper for your Owl to wear.
5.  Cut your Bermuda Bay card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.  Cut your Birthday Basics Designer Series Paper (I chose the Balloon design) at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Adhere the Balloon paper to the card base.
6. Cut a strip of 1″ x 5-1/2″ of Gumball Green. Use your Fringe Scissors to cut grass leaving about 1/4″ at the bottom that is not cut.  I place the tips of my scissors about 1/4″ from the bottom, then cut.  Put Sticky Strip along the back of the 1/4″ uncut grass.  Since this card is going to a 3 year-old, I also put a strip of Sticky Strip on the card front so the upper edge was just lower than 1″ from the bottom edge so the grass will hopefully not break off.  Adhere your grass to your card front.
7.  Now stamp the desired sentiment from the Itty Bitty Banners stamp set in Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out the Banner with the large Bitty Banner Framelit.  Then glue it onto a scrap of Bermuda Bay card stock and trim so there is about a 1/8″ Bermuda Bay border on your Banner.
8.  Now lay your framed Owl and your Banner in the desired positions.  Glue down the Frame first.  Add your Baker’s Twine or Ribbon on top of your Owl’s Wing and glue it down so it goes to the back of your Banner.  Glue your Banner down. Ooops! My Banner sticks off the card a little. 🙂

Happy Owl Making!

Paper Pumpkin Album

This Scrapbook Album is another Paper Pumpkin project.  It comes with 8 wooden people, 3 Binder Rings, chipboard front and back covers, 4 solid color tabbed dividers,  8 pages in 4 different patterned papers, and 1 memorbilia bag.  All pages and covers have 3 punched holes.  The front cover has the words “Real Life” that you can easily punch out if desired.
Paper Pumpkin Real Life Scrapbook Album
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE FRONT COVER:
1.  I did not want a plain chipboard cover so I use the Watercolor Wonder Designer Series Paper #132994 to put on the front cut to 5″ x 8″.  I put it behind the cover and traced the letters with a pen.  I cut the letters out with Paper Snips.  I used Tombow Multipurpose Glue to adhere the Designer Series Paper to the front cover putting thin glue lines around the edges, holes, and letters, and some in the center.
2.  I chose a wood person for each of my grandchildren.  I used the word bubble stamp that came with the Kit to stamp 3 word bubbles each in Strawberry Slush and Island Indigo.  I then wrote each child’s name in the coordinating Marker.  I used Tombow to adhere the wood people and the word bubbles.
3.  I will be adding pictures of my grandchildren taken since November to the pages.  I will use 1 Tab per month for November, December, January, and February.  There are lots of die cuts with sayings and stickers on to embellish the pages.  The back of each patterned page has lines on for Journaling.

I am behind in posting some of my Paper Pumpkin projects.  Here is one that was meant for Christmas.  The other side of the big Tag says “Noel”.  Since I just made these cards Saturday, I did not keep with the Christmas theme and used some of my other stamps and tools.  There were plenty of Dimensionals included in the Kit for me to be my usual “Dimensional Queen” self!  I will let you know above each card the extra things I used that were not in the Kit.  Yes, the little stars came stitched together already.  A Real Red Stampin’ Spot (1″ ink pad) came with the Kit.  I did use Glue Dots to attach a few of the stars in each strand.

Note:  Sale-a-bration items are FREE until March 31, 2014 with a $50 purchase from My Online Store.  Sale-a-bration item numbers can only be used after your product total reaches $50.  Choose ONE Sale-a-bration item for each $50.  HERE is a Sale-a-bration PDF so you can see all your choices.  The Bundles at the front are suggested to help you reach your $50 product totals.  The FREE Choices start on page 12.

Other:  Big Shot Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets #120805
Dimensionals

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut Your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
*2.  Watch the Video below for this step.  Cut your Cherry Cobbler card stock at 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.  Cut a piece of Multipurpose Adhesive sheet the same size. Peel off the words on the Adhesive Sheet and adhere it to your Cherry Cobbler card stock.  Run though your Big Shot using this sandwich:  Magnetic OR Multipurpose Platform (all tabs closed), cutting plate, card stock with adhesive side touching cutting plate, Wax Paper, Hexagon Hive Thinlit, and your top cutting plate.  Poke out the hexagons that are cut.  Not all of them will come out-they are not supposed to!  Set aside the hexagon stickers for another project.  Peel off the adhesive backing and adhere to your card front.
3.  Stamp your Banner Blast Hearts in Real Red ink inside each full hexagon.  Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig if you want them perfectly placed, or just try to stamp in the center like I did.
4.  Stamp your “Love” and “When I thing of YOU I can’t STOP SMILING” sentiments in Real Red in on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out the “SMILING” sentiment with the coordinating Chalk Talk Framelit.  Hand cut your “Love” .  Put Dimensionals on the back of both sentiments.
5.  Cut your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart out with the desired size Heart Framelit.  I used the third one from the center.  Use your Small Heart Punch to punch out your Red Glimmer Paper Heart.  Put Dimensionals on the back of both Hearts.
6.  Position the “LOVE” and Small Red Glimmer Paper Heart on top of the Silver Glimmer Paper Heart.  Adhere in the desired positions with the Dimensionals.  Position your Silver Glimmer Paper Heart and your “Smiling” sentiment in the desired positions on your card front.  Adhere.
7.  You can use some of the Hexagon Stickers you made to decorate the corners inside your card and on the outside of your envelope.  I have not yet tested to see how well they make it through the mail on the outside of an envelope.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Twisty Treat Bag-Sale-a-bration

SUPPLIES:
Kit:  Twisty Treats Kit #133513
Ink & Card Stock:  Tempting Turquoise
Stamps:  Love You More  w#131850  c#131853  (available while supplies last)
Punch:  Small Heart #117193
Adhesives:  Glue Dots
SNAIL Adhesive

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Decorate your tag or tags as desired.
1a.  I chose the White side of a Hexagon Tag and stamped using Island Indigo ink.
1b.  I used one of the larger striped Tags and added one of the Silver Glimmer Paper Hearts with a Tempting Turquoise mat underneath.  To make the Mat:  Punch 2 Tempting Turquoise Hearts.  Cut one in half length-wise and one in half width-wise.  Use a Glue Dot on each piece to help them stick to the back of the Silver Glimmer Paper Heart.
1c.  Now position your Tags and Heart as desired.  Adhere.
2.  Fill your Treat Bag.  Twist around your bag 1-2 twists-enough to keep it closed.  Now thread one side of the Twist Tie through the hole in your Tag and twist again.
3.  There are 12 bags in the Kit so you can experiment with different ways to decorate your bags.

Happy Treat Giving!

Sale-a-bration Q&A and Good as Gold Card Kit

This fun Good as Gold Card Kit with the Metallic Gold Foil Accents is FREE with a $50 purchase starting tomorrow, January 28, 2014.
Good As Gold Sale-a-bration 2014 Card Kit
Here are some answers to questions you might have about Sale-a-bration.
Question:  What is Sale-a-bration?
Answer:  Sale-a-bration is Stampin’ Up’s FAVORITE time of year!!  There are THREE ways to Sale-a-brate!
1.  Customers:  Choose 1 Sale-a-bration product for every $50 in merchandise you buy.
2.  Host a Party:  Schedule a Party date with me.  Invite your friends to Stamp and place orders.  If all your orders total at least $300 you will get $30 more Hostess Dollars to spend on anything in the catalog!
3.  Join Stampin’ Up!:  Start YOUR OwN Stampin’ Up! business for just $99 and get $150 dollars (regular $125) in merchandise to start your business!

Some of those who have seen the Sale-a-bration 2014 Catalog have asked me a question.
Question:  Do I have to purchase one of the Bundles shown in the Sale-a-bration catalog to earn the FREE products or can I buy anything?
Answer:  You can buy any Stampin’ Up! products that total $50 in merchandise or more (before shipping and tax).  The Bundles in the Sale-a-bration catalog are just suggestions to make it easier for you as there is only 1 item number.
Questions:  What if I want more than 1 FREE product?
Answer:  You get to choose 1 item for every $50 in merchandise you spend.  For example, buy $100 of products and choose 2 items.  The merchandise must be in increments of $50 or more.  If your merchandise is $99 you will just get to choose 1 FREE item so get some Dimensionals or a SNAIL Refill to put you over $100.  There is NO LIMIT to the amount of FREE merchandise you can earn-Except your budget 🙁
Question:  How long does Sale-a-bration last?
Answer:  January 28-March 31, 2014.
Please email me If you have additional questions.  My email address is:  nendy@nendyscreativecorner.com.

SUPPLIES:
Kit:  Good As Gold Card Kit #133512  (8 cards, envelopes, and embellishments)
Adhesives:  Glue Dots
Dimensionals
Other:  Scissors

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Fold a card in half.  Choose a Sentiment Banner, a long thing banner, a Gold Banner, a piece of Baker’s Twine, and a piece of Gold cord.
2.  You can assemble them any way you would like.  I will tell you how to copy my first one.  Lay out the Banners in the position you want them.  Adhere the sentiment banner with Dimensionals.  Punch out the Gold Star from the Gold Foil Banner.  Adhere the Gold Star with a Glue Dot.
3.  Use some of the Gold cord to wrap around your Long Thin Banner.  It will help if you have 2-3 Glue Dots on the back to help the cord stay in place.  Use additional Glue Dots to adhere to card front.
4.  Tie some Gold Cord in the Star Hole on the Gold Foil Banner.  Adhere Banner with Glue Dots.
5. Take a piece of Baker’s Twine and wrap it around 2-4 fingers.  Tie a knot in the center.  Trip off the ends.  Adhere in desired position with a Glue Dot or two.
6.  Take the Envelope and the Gold Foil Envelope Liner.  Put some SNAIL adhesive along the top, rounded part of the Envelope Liner.  Slide the Envelope Liner inside the Envelope.  Adjust the position of the Envelope Liner and press the top, rounded part to adhere the SNAIL to the Envelope flap.  Fold the Envelope flap down to crease the Go;d Foil Liner.
7.  Admire your Metallic, trendy card!  You can now make the other seven cards either doing them the same or making each one different.
8.  Admire your cards.  Give a set to someone or give them away individually.

Happy Card Making!

So Very Grateful

I don’t know about you, but I am in the mood for some Spring Flowers!  The So Very Grateful stamp set has the beautiful Flowers I have been looking for!  I even got to watercolor them with my blender pen!  Enjoy!!
So Very Grateful Spring Flowers

SUPPLIES:
Stamps:  So Very Grateful  w#133050  c#133053
Ink:  StayzOn Black
Markers:  Pacific Point
Pool Party
Blushing Bride
Wild Wasabi
Garden Green
Blender Pen #102845
Card Stock:  Pacific Point
Tempting Turquoise
Whisper White
Big Shot:  Window Frames Collection Framelits #129021
Adorning Accents Edgelits #125595
Bitty Banners Framelits#129267
Other:  Dimensionals
SNAIL Adhesive

INSTRUCTIONS:
1.  Cut your Pacific Point card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″.  Score and fold at 4-1/4″.
2.  Cut your Tempting Turquoise at 4-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.  Cut two opposite sides using your Adorning Accents Edgelits.  Make sure the “bump out” is in the same place on each side.  This is where having two comes in nicely!
3.  Stamp your Flower image on Whisper White card stock with StazOn Black Ink.  I colored with the Marker brush tip in the spot on the flowers I wanted to be darker.  I then used the Blender Pen to blend the color in the white area.  Be careful and gentle as too much pressure or working in an area too long will cause the paper to start coming apart.  I did the center flower and medium rose in Pacific Point.  I did the smaller blueish flowers in Pool Party.  The small pink flowers were in Blushing Bride.  (I think.)  I just colored the leaves without using the Blender Pen.
4.  When finished coloring, cut out the Flowers with the desired Window Frames Framelit.  Also cut TWO of the same size Framelit from Pacific Point card stock.
5.  Take the two Pacific Point Window Frames and cut them in half.  Then trim straight down from the outside of the points.  Adhere one at a time to the back of your stamped Whisper White Window Frame leaving the desired mat around the White.  Continue until all four pieces are adhered to the back.  HERE is a link showing the same technique with the Top Note die.
6.  Stamp your sentiment In Pacific Point ink on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with the coordinating Bitty Banners Framelit.
7.  Position all pieces as desired and adhere them to the card front.
8.  Enjoy your brightly colored Spring Flowers card!

Happy Stamping!
