Extravaganza Altered Gift Bag – Dragonfly Dreams

This is the altered gift bag that I made for each of my guests who came to the Auckland Extravaganza event last weekend. Each Extravaganza I enjoy coming up with a new design to decorate my guests’ kraft gift bag.  For this design, I decided to keep it similar to the card our team taught at the event.  I used the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set and dies, Falling in Love Designer Series Paper and Lace Dollies to decorate the bag.

March Extravaganza Altered Gift Bag with Dragonfly

 

Here is a close up the main decorated part of the gift bag:

Thursday’s Tip: How To Stamp Large Background Stamps

Large background stamps are to great to use to stamp a full background on something, but as they are so big, sometimes they can be a bit more difficult to stamp with.  Today’s tip is a video showing you how to best stamp with these large background stamps.

Video: How to stamp large background stamps

Here is the Hardwood stamp that I used.

large background stamps, Hardwood

Yesterday I shared with you an Easter Basket and I used this Hardwood stamp to decorate the outside of the basket.  Can you see the Hardwood stamp on the outside of the basket below?  If you missed out on seeing the post, you may like to check it out here and learn how I made the basket.

If you would like to look for other background stamps, go to the Online  Store and type in “background” in the search box and you will see a variety of them.  Some are big like this.  Others are smaller and require stamping a few times over the background.

Each week on Thursday I will share a new tip with you.  Please come and visit and check them out.  If you missed seeing last week’s tip, How to use the extra thick dynamic embossing folder in your Big Shot,  why not check that out too.  It includes a short video as well.  If you would like to see lots of other tips, go to the “Categories” which is on the right hand side of my blog page and click on “Tips and Tricks”.

Is there something that you would like to learn how to do?  Please let me know and I will try and include it as one of my tips.  Or do you have a tip that you find useful, please share it with me and perhaps I could share  your tip with others, giving you credit for it.

Thanks for visiting and watching the video for this week’s tip, how to stamp large background stamps.

Video Tutorial For Easter Basket Made With Window Box Dies

This Easter Basket is made using the Window Box Thinlits Dies.  It was the table gift for my customers who came along to the Auckland Extravaganza event on Saturday.  It is a project that I designed myself and I was quite pleased with it.  I hope my customers were too.

Easter Basket front view

I used the 12″ x 12″ Kraft cardstock which is a slightly heavier cardstock compared to the other standard coloured Stampin’ Up! cardstock. I thought it would be better to use stronger cardstock, especially as it has slits cut out on the front and back.   Once I cut the window box die out and then stamped it with the Hardwood stamp to create more of a wood look.  To make the basket, you only need one die cut piece, but you do need to later cut it in a special way, so that you can make the basket.  The video below shows you how to do this.

After adding the handle, to finish the box off, I shredded some brown paper – I just cut it with scissors.  I put this in the basket and added the treats on top.

Easter Basket - top view

There aren’t too many supplies needed to make this basket and it is fairly simple to make.  Check out this video below showing you how to make it.

 A video showing you how to make Easter Basket:

I would love to hear what you think of this basket.  I am till fairly new to making videos so also feel free to leave any feedback or constructive criticism.  If you enjoyed it, please subscribe to my You Tube Channel, Stamp with Angela.

Easter Basket Supplies:

Auckland Extravaganza Elegant Dragonfly Tunnel Card

The Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies are a main feature in this dragonfly Tunnel Card.  This is a card that I designed for the Auckland Extravaganza event on Saturday.  It was one of the five projects the ladies who came on Saturday got to make.

Dragonfly Tunnel Card Front

The dragonfly was cut out of Copper Foil Sheets and it has some Copper Metallic Thread behind it too.  The Designer Series Paper on the front of the card is the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper.  It has some lovely soft, subtle colours.  The Lace Dollies are Very Vanilla on one side and Whisper White on the other, so when you are using them on your cards and projects you can choose either colour.  That way you will know that it will coordinate with your card!

Here is the inside of the card:
Dragonfly Dreams Tunnel Card Inside

The cluster of dragonflies are also cut out of the Copper Foil Sheets.

Dragonfly Tunnel Card Supplies:

Stamps: Dragonfly Dreams*

Inks: Crumb Cake, Memento Tuxedo Black

Cardstock/Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Copper Foil Sheets, Falling in Love Designer Series Paper 

Other: Big Shot, Precision Plate, Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies*, Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies, Big Shot Die Brush, Metallic Copper Thread, Lace Doilies (half), Sponges (optional), Liquid Multipurpose Adhesive, Tear & Tape Adhesive, Dimensionals

I love this Dragonfly Dreams bundle and I have made some other cards using it too and also with a copper dragonfly.  You can see one of these here.

Over the next few days I will share with you the gift I made for my customers who came along, as well as the other four projects. Make sure you come back and see these too!

I hope you enjoyed seeing this Dragonfly Tunnel Card from the Auckland Extravaganza event.

Thursday’s Tip: How To Use The Extra Thick Dynamic Embossing Folder In Your Big Shot

A great way to add texture to your card is by using an embossing folder and you can give an even deeper texture with a dynamic embossing folder.   The new Hexagon Dynamics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder is one of these extra thick embossing folders which I have used on today’s card.  I also have a video to share with you on how to use this embossing folder in your Big Shot.

Close up of the Hexagon dynamic embossing folder

I made some note cards using the Hexagon Dynamics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder with my Big Shot as well as one of the Sale-A-Bration stamp sets, Avant Garden.

Here are two cards made with the Hexagon Dynamics Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  There is a subtle difference between these two cards.  See if you can see the subtle difference?

Two similar cards featuring the Hexagon dynamic embossing folder

Did you notice the difference?  If not, look more towards the outside of the card.  I will let you know the difference towards the end of the post.

And here is a third card, with another difference.  Maybe more noticeable?  What do you think?

With a sponged edge and metallic thread

This card was cased from BJ Peters, but as you do with casing, I changed it a little.

Supplies:

Stamp Sets: Avant Garden (SAB stamp set)

Ink: Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Real Red,

Paper & Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Whisper White

Other: Whisper White Note Cards, Big Shot, Hexagons Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Sponges, Stampin’ Trimmer,  Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Dimensionals

Here is a video on how to use a Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder in your Big Shot:

Did you figure out the difference between the two note cards above?  The one on the left had sponging around the outside edge of the note card and on the edge of the embossed Daffodil Delight cardstock too.  The one on the right didn’t.

How about the next card featured. Did you work out what was different about that one?  It had some gold metallic thread which you could see around the edge of the stamped circle image.

Overall which is your favourite card?  Please comment and let me know.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s post, the cards featured and the video.  You would have been able to see benefits of adding some texture to you cards with a dynamic embossing folder and also how easy it is to do!  I hope you will give it ago too!

Card in a Box with Blooms & Bliss and Flower Shop

Today I am sharing with you a card in a box.  This is made with the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper, Flower Shop and Petite Petals Stamp Sets.  It is a card that is just that little bit extra special and it will wow the recipient.

card in a box front

This was a card I taught a few years ago and one of my class members said they would like to be reminded how to make it.  It was one of the cards I taught at my Favourites Revisited Class yesterday.

I love the Rich Razzleberry colour which I have used for the card base, along with Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum and Mint Macaron.

I also added a few Rhinestones just to add some sparkle to the card!

Here are some more photos of the card in a box!

Elegant Tall Gift Box Made With Window Box Thinlits Dies

This lovely tall gift box is made with the Window Box Thinlits Dies.  This is one of the projects that us Demonstrators were taught how to make at Stamp Camp last month.  This project was taught to us by Narelle.   Isn’t it a lovely box that would make a beautiful gift.

tall gift box

We cut two Window Box Thinlits Dies as usual and some extra panel pieces so we could extend the box to make it taller.   I filled it up with some treat sized chocolates, but this sized box would also be perfect for a large candle.  I am sure anyone would love to receive a gift like this.  Wouldn’t you?

The colours we used were Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum (one of my favourites) and Crumb Cake.  I have since made this same box in Wisteria Wonder, Sweet Sugarplum and Crumb Cake and it also looks lovely.  I took some photos before I gave it to the recipients, but unfortunately they photos were too blurry and I didn’t realise until after I had given it to them.  So today’s post only shows photos of the one I learnt how to make at camp.

Around the outside of the box is decorated with the Hexagon Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.   This was the first time I used this embossing folder.  It is an extra thick embossing folder and gives a lovely deep impression.  I will be sharing how to use this folder this week on Thursday for this week’s tip.

We also made out own flowers for the top.  Would you believe they were made from the Balloon Bouquet Punch as well as the Pansy Punch!  It was a very clever idea, and a way to create a flower big enough for the top.

Thursday’s Tip: How To Best Cut And Score Your A4 Cardstock

How to best cut and score your A4 cardstock is my tip for today as I bring back my weekly Thursday’s Tip blog post.  I had this weekly feature last year and then I took a break over the Christmas and New Year period.  Now it is time to bring it back with a new tip each Thursday.

cut and score

Here is the South Pacific and England, and I am sure other countries too, we use A4 cardstock and metric measurements.  I have a video to share with you showing you how to score and cut your cardstock so you get two cards from one sheet and a tip to get it done more efficiently.

Here is the video:

Do you usually cut, then score?  Will you do it the other way around now?

I hope you find this video useful with some tips on how to cut and score your A4 cardstock.

Remember to come back each Thursday for a new tip or check out some of the ones from last year.
