The first idea that came to mind was a shaker card when I saw the #tgifc342 sketch, and the second idea was that it would be lovely in the #gdp317 color challenge:
I am participating in Stampin’ Up!’s virtual convention #onstageathome so as I was listening to a class, I had time to put my ideas to paper, so to speak!
I used Faux Snow from Dollar Tree inside my shaker and colored the white seam binding ribbon with my dark Mint Macaron Stampin’ Blend marker. Sometimes you have to pull pieces from multiple stamp sets to create what you imagined in your head, so the. sentiment is from the Banner Year stamp set (all supplies listed below) and stars came from the beloved Seasons of Fun set (remember to choose it as part of your host rewards when your order is over $150).
A heartfelt THANK YOU to all my stamping friends who have supported my business. I earned the following awards this year and it’s all courtesy of your friendship and loyalty. YOU are the best reward I could ever ask for!
Combining unique techniques to create a one-of-a-kind card is so gratifying– This is one I shared on my Facebook Lunchtime Live Crafting a few Mondays ago and I finally edited the video tutorial to share with you!
It’s a Split Panel card with a Mason Jar Shaker Dome and you can make it in many colors~ I used the 2020-2022 In Colors.
You may have noticed the second one ISN’T a shaker card…I gave the one from the video away!
You can watch and follow along in the video to create your own:
You can order all the supplies to create this card from my Stampin’ Store. Let me know if you try it and how you love it!
Over on the Friday Mashup today, the challenge was to create a shaker card with an animal. The Owl Punch is still one of my favorite punches, so out he popped for a cameo appearance on this birthday card, along with a sentiment from the Good Greetings stamp set, which you can get FREE when you host a qualifying party before October 31st !
Welcome to another edition of “5 Ways on Fridays” where you will learn unique and different ways to use a Stampin’ Up! product!
Today we are talking about Fringe Scissors Certain projects are easier when you have the right tools and this is one of those tools: Every time you squeeze the handles of your fringe scissors together, you are cutting not once, not twice, but FIVE TIMES! Talk about conserving energy 🙂
“What can I do with them besides making grass?” you may be asking yourself. You’ve come to the right place!
1. Fringe scissors make Ombre Fringe cards and tags in a jiffy! For this tag, I used Soft Sky, Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Island Indigo card stock, along with the new Tag Topper punch:
While you are “fringing”, check out this adorable Fringe Chandeliermade by Lauren Elise for the Knotty Bride:
2. Create a crepe paper garland! This tutorial from Yesterday on Tuesday shows a few different styles and hello! This is super fast with your fringe scissors:
3.Flowers or “pom poms” are adorable accents to any project.
Lisa Brown from inkandinspirations shows you how fun and easy these are to make using Stampin’ Up! Crepe Filter Paper:
4. If you cut across your fringe the opposite way, you end up with CONFETTI!
At Stampin’ Up! Leadership last month, Shelli demonstrated how to create a shaker card using the confetti made with fringe scissors: Cut the corner of a clear envelope to the size you need (in this case, just a smidge taller than the photo frame die cut). Stamp image on top of clear envelope with Stazon, then seal the confetti in with a thin strip of sticky strip. Place behind the die cut and voila! Shake away!
5. A strip of fringe from Designer Series Paper or crepe paper is easy to adhere around a curved object like a basket or hat brim:
For these medallions, I just punched two circles and cut in from the edge. I used two because when you cut into the circle, some of the pieces fall off and it’s not perfectly round, so layering them gives the illusion they are still circles 🙂
At just $9.95, these scissors are an awesome addition to your crafting toolbox! Order your Fringe Scissors in my Stampin’ Up! store today and start living on the edge 🙂
