Fun Favors and a Freebie!

I have been getting ready for my daughters’ birthday party all week and today I want to share the favor boxes and cupcake wrapper I made. I used the Pretty Favor SVG and the Alice ATC collage sheet sets which are both 30% off thru Friday along with everything else at Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff:

I cut the favor box, banner and cupcake wrapper with my cricut, to see the entire banner please check out yesterdays post.

The favor boxes were cut with my Cricut MAchine and SCAL software (on sale $15 off!) using the SVG file in the Pretty Favor Kit (printable versions are included in the kit too if you don’t have a cricut) and they were so quick to make!

The best thing about these boxes is that they cut quickly. I get two 4"x5"x1.5" boxes from a 12"x12" paper. A bit of hot glue and the box is done!

I simply cut out and assembled the boxes, added fringe or flowers made from crepe paper party streamers and images from the Alice ATC collage sheet kit. This project qualifies for the following challenges: Crafty calendar (blue and flowers-the gift bag in the tip photo),   Our Creative Corner6 (fun with folds-folded, pleated, fringed crepe paper), Paper Take Weekly (inspiration-top photo), Pocket Full of Poises (flowers), Practical Scrappers (buttons), Scrappekammeret and Southern  Girls Challenge (anything goes), Scrappy Frogs (make your own flowers-on the gift bags in the 2nd photo)

When the kids got home from school I let them fill the boxes with candy and favors!

Here is a look at the kits I used:

And now for your freebie, a quick to cut cupcake wrapper, enjoy! Click the preview to download.

Fun Favors & a Freebie!

I can’t get enough of die-cut boxes! I designed a new set this week called Fun Favors and used them in this set. I’ve had Christmas on the brain lately (maybe due to the warm weather we are having, I must really want to cool off:) so I also made a card with the Warm Winter digistamps from Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff.

I colored the snowman with my prismacolor markers, since so much of it is white it was really quick (you could easily make a batch of these) and the “noel” label is from the pepermint holiday collection at Lettering Delights. I like to print up a sheet of sentiments and cut them apart as I need them, I used scraps leftover from making the boxes to decorate the card.

This set qualifies for the following challenges: Our Creative Corner, Stamp Something (Christmas), Penny’s Paper Crafty(anything goes), TCP (use die cuts) and the sketch from a crafty little place.

Here is a look at my new Fun Favors template set, you can cut them with a cricut and SCAL software or print them out (JPG) and cut them by hand, best of all both versions are re-sizable!

Now here is your freebie, a cute milk carton! Tip: seal one end (of the top) but leave the other unglued so the box can be opened and shut without ripping. Click the pic to download.

Yay! New SCAL Update!

Did you hear? There is a new update available for sure cut a lot software! if you have scal 2 just go to the craftedge website and click download now and pick the version (mac or windows) that you have and download. The new version still lets you cut your SVG files and computer fonts with your Cricut machine but now you can draw directly on the scal mat and load fonts in scal without installing them! It is so easy too and if you don’t have scal 2 yet you can save 10% until tomorrow with coupon code: 8774959! Here I printed a pretty frame then cut it with scal2:

I converted clip art to a cutting file in scal and cut it after I printed it!

The frame is by Cheri Wenger and you can find that at MyGrafico. Be sure to stop by tomorrow, we will have details about the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff Hop, Shop & Crop! Til then happy crafting!

Lets Crop!

I have met so many cool crafters over the years online and I wished we could all get together for a craft night, well now we can! Next week in Celebration of the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff 1 year Anniversary I am having my first ever virtual crop and I hope you will join me:

All you need to do, if you havent already, is join the MyGrafico Community then when accepted you can join the crop room {a virtual classroom} and you can crop with me next week! It is free of course and you can win fabulous prizes so what are you waiting for, sign up now :)

Digital Stamps: Lindsay's stamp Stuff, Rubber stamps: SU!, Inkadinkado, Paper: DCVW, Sketch: 2s4y

I was looking for some inspiration this morning so I popped over to 2 sketches 4 you and mad 2 cards using both Laura’s sketch #49 and the bonus sketch. This card uses the bonus sketch and the “Baby” theme from Caardvarks:

The chick digi is from the cute easter stamp set from Lindsay's stamp stuff. See stamping tip at the end of this post :)

There are some fun techniques on this card. I stitched 4 pieces of 2″x7″ tissie paper together, fringed  and crinkled it (I got that tip from Johanna on Leah Fung’s blog) and hot glued it to my card, fun! Also I embossed the little dots on the scallop circle with my Crop-a-dial just by placing my paper in the eyelet setter part and giving a squeeze.

All of the die cuts were done with Sure Cuts a Lot  (SCAL) software using fonts! You can save 10% on scal until the 14th with coupon code: 8774959 SCAL lets you cut fonts from your computer with your Cricut machine, cool huh!

I colored the scissors from the Sew Pretty set with copics.

Here is another cool tip from Johanna, look at the little bow, all you do is fold a scrap of ribbon in 3 and tie it with thread, saves time, money and look how cute!

I had a bit of trouble stamping the “it’s a girl” on the tall card, the ink kept beading up on the cheap-o clear stamp so I scuffed it with an emery board (fingernail file) and now it works so well:

Use a fingernail file or fine grit sandpaper to improve a cheap clear stamp! Please note, this if for the silicone cheapos that you find in the craft store (like the dollar stamps) high quality clear stamp will not need this step. Stamp first, scuff later:)

Boy that was a lot to get through! Thanks for sticking with me and til next time happy crafting!

Sew Pretty and a Freebie!

Hello folks, it is Thursday again and time to find out what has been happening in the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff shop.  I decided to use my Sewing Stuff stamp and this weeks sketch from 2sketches4you and the challenge to use lace over at Caardvarks to make this card:

In addition to the real lace I used a Cornelli lace wheel stamp for a touch of homespun charm:)

I am very happy how the card turned out. I cut one of Penny Duncan’s “Nesties” for the sentiment using my Cricut and SCAL software (save 10% on SCAL with coupon code: 8774959) then I used a tradional rubber stamp (SU) for the verse. I poked holes around the edges and drew on my “stitches” with a pen ;)

I have been drawing up a storm this week and I have a few new sets out, on of which cooranates with the Sewing Stuff set, it is called Sew Pretty.

Here are two more new sets in the shop, Puddle fun and Teariffic:

and now for the freebie, a pretty frame made of ribbon, click on the image to download :)

More “Scrap-pile” Cards!

I recently found a blog that have a challenge every week called “Scrap pile Saturday” and  was all over that. Whenever I can I dip in to my paper scraps to build a card (I have to cut into a full sheet of paper) and I have quite a stash of scraps. This weeks challenge was to use 3 pattern paper scraps to make a card:

Everything I used here was from the scrap bin! The House Mouse stamps were colored in at my Mom's house when I fist got my Copics on Paper Co. Paper, I was going to toss them but I just love the mice! I'm glad I kept them cuz these are pretty cute I think:)

This card also qualifies for the House Mouse Monday challenge which is Easter! I do love those cute little mice, My mom has a great collection so I often stamp out a bunch when I visit, I have many too which my kids stamp and color more than I do! I sent this card to my mom:

Stamps: House Mouse (of course) and the sentiments are from Studio G (those lovely dollar sets!) paper is MME and DCWV

My Sister prefers the House Mouse bunnies so this one I sent to her:

Even the card bases are from the scrap pile, they were half sheets of cardstock (DCWV premium glitter stack) that were left over from some die cut projects I did last week!

Well, this was fun, I did both cards in 20 minutes (A house cleaning break LOL) and since it was all scraps the cards were free to make! If you like the envelop in the first picture it is available in printable or SVG (a file to cut with your Cricut if you have SCAL software, use coupon 8774959 to save 10% on SCAL) in the Envelope Bonanza template pack:

7 svg templates and 8 printable templates for only $4!

Thanks for stopping by, til next time happy crafting!

Die Cuttin’ & Airbrushin’

Boy oh boy, between my die cutting machine, new Copic markers and rediscovering my airbrush I am a happy crafty camper!

Stamps: House Mouse, MSE!, PP: DCWV, CArdstock: Bazzil, Punch: Martha Stewart

I cut and embossed the mat for this card using Penny Duncan’s nesting file. Then I stamped this cute house mouse stamp with Memento Tuxedo Black (my new favorite ink!) and colored it with my Copics. then I stamped the mouse again on a post it note and placed it over the colored image. Then I used my Paasche airbrush to spray alcohol ink (Piniata red + denatured alcohol) around the edges of the mat. By covering the image with a post it I can be sure no stray ink is sprayed on my image. The photo corners are a freebie from Thursday’s post. I cut them and the mat with my Cricut and scal software. If you don’t have SCAL yet there is a coupon for 10% off til the 28th (Sunday) so grab it quick: 4190114

Speaking of Die cutting  Micki wanted me to share a photo of my “die cutting center” so here it is, enjoy:

Everything is in arms reach, there is plenty of room in front and behind the cricut without taking up much counter space. I store my mats on the box under the machine.

Here is the inside of the box, I installed a power strip inside for my overhead light, cricut and laptop. When I am done cutting for the day I turn one switch off, easy!

A place for everything!

Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

Asian Thanks

I had time (while waiting for paint to dry) to make a quick card using layout #59 from Oriental Stamp Art. Since I am being a good little stamper I made an envelope to match (template below) and since good things come in 3′s I made an altered paperclip too:

Stamps: About Art Accents, PP: American Crafts, Tool: Cricut/SCAL software

Stamps: About Art Accents

The stamps are from About Art Accents. I stamped and embossed the coin rectangle (size d) then cut it into 3 squares and matted them on cream cardstock. I used a black ultra fine bic mark it to go over the “thank you” so it would stand out, The cute mat was cut and embossed using Penny Duncan free svg file from her blog (thanks Penny!)  If you like the square petal envelope I made you can download the template here for free:

Here is the square petal envelope SVG (for Cricut/SCAL users).  Save 10% on scal til the 28th with coupon: 4190114

Here is  a cut file for design studio users with the George cartridge.

If you don’t have a cricut you can make the same envelope with a circle cutter, see my tutorial here.
