With the Halloween around the corner, I am sure we all need to have ideas on how to make Halloween treat holders. Am I wrong? Is it just me? Hope not.. 🙂

Also Today I am participating on the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop with a lovely group of demonstrators around the globe. We will be showcasing different 3D items, so I know you are in for a treat!! Make sure you follow us along the Blog Hop. I know you will enjoy visiting all the blogs participating in today’s hop, not to mention that you will get so much inspiration!! 

Halloween Treat Holders made easy!

Halloween Treat Holder #1

Learn how to make this cute Halloween treat holder!

The first Halloween Treat holder I am going to be sharing with you is super simple to make. You need to have  a sheet of card stock of Gray Granite that is 4″ x 8 1/2″. Stamp this piece of card stock with the jar images from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle from Stampin’ Up! I stamped in Gray Granite, as I wanted a tone on tone look.

Then score the piece of card stock on the long side at 2″, 4″, 6″ and 8″, and then turn it and score at 1/2″ and at 2 1/2″. You can see the following video, where I go over how to make the box. This was part of my FB live so scroll to around minute 14 to see exactly how to assemble the box.

To embellish this treat holder, I die cut one of the frames from the Spooktacular Bash Bundle. I used an image from the Monster Bash designer series paper (patterned paper).

I love that this paper pack has two sheets of the frame images, as you can easily cut them and have them ready for other Halloween treat holders or even cards! The process will go even faster if you cut these images ahead of the time.  

Also the dies on this bundle are not really related to Halloween. You can use them for any occasion with any sentiment stamp set you already have! You can see how I used it here on a Christmas card. Believe me you want to add the Spooktacular Bash Bundle to your collection!

To finish this Halloween treat holder, I added the little closure to the top of the box, this is a great way close boxes as the recipient can open the treat holder without having to rip the box!  

I also added the eye balls from the Monster Bash enamel shapes! these really made a difference as they added dimension!.. give it a try!

Halloween Treat Holder #2

Learn how to make a cute Halloween Treat Holder that will get you ready for Halloween!

The Halloween treat holder is a little pocket that holds Gummy bears, I know my little Oliver loves gummy bears, so I think his friends at day care will too!

Anyway for this pocket I used a piece of Basic Black card stock that is 8 1/2″ x 5″. It is scored on the long side at 2 1/4″ on both ends, and then on the short side you need to score at 3/4″ on one side and 1″ on the other side. You can watch this video to see how I made this card in more detail, this was as well made during the same FB live where I made the first Halloween treat holder, but you can scroll to around minute 25 to see how to put together the gummy bear holder. 

I must confess that I am a very visual person, I rather video than words. I know I am not the best at explaining how to put together these cute Halloween treat holder with words, but I can show you in a video! And for this reason I recommend  to watch this video. You can see step by step how to put them together!

Supplies needed for the Halloween Treat Holders

These Halloween treat holders use the collection of products from the Monster Bash Suite, which you can see HERE. You can scroll down to the bottom of this post and see all the specific products I use with the links to my store where you can purchase them.

Make a quick & easy Halloween card using sketches

Hello there!  Today I am going to show you how to make a quick and easy card using sketches, and over the next few days I will sharing other Halloween projects. This will help you get ready for Halloween in no time!  Come back to this blog to check out the new projects!  

As you can see, I am participating in a monthly Blog Hop with Kylie. Be sure to check the other blogs participating in this blog hop. You will get tons of inspiration as you hop around with us.  🙂  Let’s get ready!

Quick and Easy – Halloween Card using Sketches

 

What do you need to get started?

Excellent question! When I come up with quick and easy cards with sketches, I try to see if I have designer series paper (patterned paper) that has big images that can be either cut, punch, or die cut. These will really help you in making your projects go super easy and in no time. 

Why do I start with an image that I can cut?  fair question. The reason is because when you start looking for a sketch to make your card, you can use this image as main element of your card, so it is easier to see what type of sketch you need when you have selected that image.

Since this card is for Halloween, lets make sure you look for paper that has cute pumpkins, witches, monsters, or any other related image that you can cut.  And while you are already looking for Halloween themed patterned paper, look for another sheet of designer series paper (patterned paper) that could go well with the images you have cut. 

Stampin’ Up! does great when it comes to patterned paper, as they have a collection of sheets on each pack that works pretty well together. You cannot go wrong when choosing two sheets from the same pack! The card, I am showcasing today, uses the Monster Bash Designer series paper!  

Once you have selected the patterned paper, then see which colors will coordinate with those images. You can pick the card stock for the card base, sentiments, as well as the ink colors that you will be using.

Finally you need to pick embellishments! you can pick ribbon, rhinestones, stickers, etc. This should color coordinate with the colors selected on the previous step. 

I have the supplies, now what?

The next step in putting your card together is to come up with an sketch. I recommend going into Pinterest and look really quick for a sketch that catches your eye! but notice I said REALLY QUICK! lol cause I know you can easily fall into that rabbit hole where you start looking for something in Pinterest and three hours later you are still looking for that idea or inspiration 😀  Believe me I know!! 

One of the things to look for in a sketch, is for it to be simple without many layers, specially if you are new to using sketches. This will also help if you want to come up with quick and easy cards that you can make in no time. The truth is, simpler sketches are so much easier to follow and to put together. 

Also, keep in mind the image you selected on the previous step when selecting a sketch. In my project I have a Witch frame that is a circle, so that helps me visualize what kind of sketch I need to use.   

Do not use complex sketches. Complex sketches tend to confuse or overwhelm people, because you need to interchange the pieces on the sketch with real paper, and people get frustrated trying to come up with 4 or more colors and paper that can go together. I try to only use 2 to 3 patterns or colors, and so if the sketch has 2 to 3 elements it is easy to substitute these element when making your card. 

To help you get in and out of Pinterest without falling into the rabbit hole, I have created a board on my Pinterest account that you can see HERE

On this board I have save sketches that I consider to be easy to follow, to make sure you don’t get overwhelmed. You can go in and out really quick from Pinterest and grab a sketch that will work for you! 😀

I have chosen a sketch, what is next? 

Once you have the supplies you want to use, and have chosen your sketch then the fun begins!! It is time to put your card together! 

Let me show you what I did here on my card! You can see the sketch I used on the left, and on the right you can see the actual card using elements from the sketch. 

If You pay attention to the card, you will notice that I altered a little bit the sketch by adding a few things, for instance I added a scalloped circle behind the Witch, and I added ribbon under the scalloped circle as well as some rhinestones on the side of the card.

You see, that is the secret to using simple sketches! They have room for you to add more things to embellish and your card looks even better. Don’t you think?

Use this sketch to come up with quick and easy cards!     Learn how to do a quick and easy Halloween card using sketches!

 Specifics on this card! 

Now that you saw the behind the scenes of how you make quick and easy Halloween cards cards using sketches! Let’s talk about this card in specific.  

As I mentioned before I used the Monster Bash designer series paper. I love that this pack includes two sheets of frames with monsters, as you can cut all of these in one afternoon. Cutting these images ahead of time, makes it super easy to put all your Halloween projects in no time! No kidding! You just need to put paper and card stock together, add the cut images to your project and you are 90% done.

I am using the Witch frame image from the designer series paper, but I decided I wanted to add a scalloped circle under it to pop up the Crushed Curry (yellow) from the Witch image. The scalloped circle is from the Layering circles! This set includes multiple sizes for circles and coordinating scalloped circles, so it is a great set to have!

Following the sketch, I used two different sheets of patterned paper that goes well with the witch frame I had cut. Since these came from the same designer series paper pack, they color coordinate really nice. I glued down these paper. Please note that the banner ends on the strip was cut using the Tailored Tag Punch. This punch has became my favorite ever! You need to have this one on your collection!

I stamped the sentiment from the Spooktacular Bash stamp set, and punched it out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.

As for the ribbon, I have a GREAT tip!!! you can color the metallic edge ribbon using the Stampin’ Blends! WHAT??? you read it well!!! you can color your ribbon with alcohol markers and get any color that you want! Is this not the coolest tip?  Again You are welcome! ha ha ha!

So now that we have all the elements ready, I glue everything together following the sketch.

Watch the Video tutorial on Facebook  or YouTube!

  IF you want to see how this card was created, you can watch the video HERE!  – I will upload this as well on YouTube, and once this is completed I will add it here, but in the meantime you can watch the video on this post from my Facebook page  – Update – the video is uploaded in the YouTube and on this post! .

Stamping Around the World – October 2019


Today is the Stamping Around the World Blog Hop!! And you are in for a treat, as you will get inspired by the amazing group of demonstrators in this design team!!
Make sure you go thru all the blogs participating, as I am sure you will enjoy seeing all the projects included in this blog hop! – All links are at the bottom of the post! so make sure to check them out 🙂

So for today I want to share with you some tips to help you get ready for your Holiday cards!!! If you like sending cards around the holidays then continue reading today’s post as I will be sharing some of my tips to get ready for this task. 😉

How to make your Christmas cards in time and still enjoy it!

Create beautiful Christmas cards in no time!

You see usually making cards for Christmas can easily overwhelm you as typically one makes a lot of cards, some years I have made as many as 150 cards, and it can get overwhelming, so starting sooner rather than later is always a good thing, but also trying to have a beautiful card that it is easy to make can make a difference.

How to decide how many designs to make?

I remember a few years ago, I was making multiples of cards with a friend and while these were gorgeous, I am not going to lie, it was so time consuming that I didn’t enjoy making that many of the same card, I resented the last few ones and it was so tiring and boring, so I decided that it was best to break it down into multiple designs. This not only helped me to do the task but would excite me again as I knew I was making different designs.

Now, you do want to make multiple of several designs rather than one of’s, and the reason is that sometimes it can be as well very overwhelming trying to do a different card for each recipient.. it gets tiring trying to figure out that many designs, unless you are making a few of them, like 5-10 cards, but if you are making 60-100 cards you can clearly see that you would get really overwhelmed, right?

My rule of thumb is about 20-25 cards per design, that seems to be the magic range for me between enjoying making multiples of the same versus getting bored or tired of the same design over and over.  So divide the number of total cards you want to create by 20 or 25 and that would give you the number of designs that you would need.  So if I were making 60 cards, I would design 3 cards and then do 20 of each. Hope this helps you in figuring out how many cards to design. 

What is next after deciding how many designs

The next thing I would do after deciding how many designs I need to have, is to look for designs that might use kind of the same tools or paper, that way I can batch produce as much as possible, for instance on  the cards I am showcasing today, you can easily break down some of the elements and do them in batches, like die cutting or punching in one day, cutting all the card bases as well as any designer series paper in another day, embossing in another session, making bows in another day, etc. you get the picture? 

 

 

 

 

 

In the cards I am showing above, you can see I used the Perfectly Plaid suite, so I could easily prepare for 60 cards without any trouble, as a lot of the elements are the same. 

Another thing that I could do to add interest, is that while I am doing multiples of the same card I could change out the designer series paper pattern, I would still use the same pack but I would change the pattern, so they feel like unique cards even though I am making the same design, this always helps to keep you excited about making multiples of the same card rather than feeling bored with it.  

The Key is in the design!

As you can see the designing part is key. Having a design that you can easily break down into different steps is key, but the card design should also be beautiful and easy to make, as having a more complex card can be overwhelming. It doesn’t matter in how many steps or tasks you can break it down, it still has to be easy to put together or you will still burn out with the task at hand. 

Try to look for cards that have an easy sketch to follow, believe me less is more in a lot of instances, and when you are doing 20-25 of the same card you want to be able to enjoy putting together the cards without thinking too much about it. I know what I am telling you! a lot of the times I turned the TV on at night and just ensemble my cards, since there is not much to think about the task is easy enough that I can enjoy watching my favorite show while I am enjoying putting together the cards. 

Give it a try! I know you will enjoy the process

  • Decide how many cards you want to make
  • Divide this number by 20 or 25 to come up with the number of designs you need to create
  • Chose a design that can be easily break down into simple tasks 
  • Prepare all the elements of your cards in multiple days
  • Have a date with yourself and your TV to put together your cards
  • Enjoy putting together your Christmas cards!!!

I hope you have enjoyed the tips provided on this post! I would love hearing from you, share with me other tips you have when putting together your Christmas cards, do you have a process for this? if so, share it here, so we all can learn from each other!

Stamping Around the World Blog Hop

 

 
Hi there! I hope you are having a great day! Today the Stamping Around the World team is doing and blog hop, and I am sharing THREE cards using the stamp set that I featured on the tutorial bundle for March, which is the So Hoppy Together!! 
 
If you haven’t heard the news, I have partnered with an amazing team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world to bring you a Tutorial bundle that you can get for FREE (yes you heard it right! FREE) when you place a $50 order with me!! Believe me these ladies do fantastic job on the tutorials!! I am absolutely sure that you will enjoy getting these tutorials month after month!! if you want to learn more about this tutorial bundle you can read more about this ordering incentive here
 
Here is a sneak peek of the projects included on the March Tutorial!
 
The So Hoppy Together is a cute stamp set that you can get FREE with a $50 order! as this is one of the stamp sets available during Sale-A-Bration. This stamp set features some cute little frogs that are perfect for coloring using the Stampin’ blends or watercolor pencils or aqua painters.. As you can imagine I went with the Stampin’ Blends that more and more have become my favorite way to color stamped images as it is super easy to color. I love these alcohol markers as you don’t see the strokes you make as you color and you can do some blending with the colors, so your projects look so professional with little effort! (win-win right?)
 
For these cards I used the Tropical Escape designer series paper (DSP), and I actually used this pack for color inspiration. I can tell you that this is one of my favorite tips when it comes to designing cards! Using the color combinations from the sheets on the designer series paper! Believe me, use this tip and you will see how the rest is so easy with Stampin’ Up! products as everything color coordinate, so the design process goes really smooth!
 
Usually I start with the color combination, then I will take the same colors for the cardstock, so in this case, I pulled out the shaded spruce, blushing bride, and Granny Apple Green and Whisper White as a neutral color. Since this sheet in particular had more of the Granny Apple Green I decided to use that one as my card base, but I could have used any of the other colors on this sheet.
 
Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make a three cute card very easy!! You‘ll love how quick and easy these are to make! www.creatingwithallie.com #stampinup #alejandragomez #creatingwithallie #videotutorial #cardmaking #papercrafts #handmadegreetingcards #fun #creativity #makeacard #sendacard #stampingisfun #sharewhatyoulove #handmadecards #friendshipcards
 
I did die cut some elements with the other colors as you can see, to pop up the colors on the DSP, so you can see a little flower on Blushing Bride and the leave on Shaded Spruce.
 
The little frog was stamped and die cut as well, and it was colored with the Granny Apple Green and Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends, you can see that everything color coordinate perfectly.
Because I am coloring with alcohol markers it is important to note that you need to stamp your image with memento ink pad as this is a die base ink pad so this work perfectly when coloring with alcohol markers, PLEASE DO NOT use Stazon as this is alcohol based ink pad, so when you color using Stampin’ Blends it will pick up the black of the stamped images and it will mud your coloring! 
 
 Note that I did add some cheeks with the light color of the Flirty Flamingo. I really think that this makes the critters look even cuter, Don’t you agree?? and finally I went ahead and added googling eyes!! Is this not the cutest frog???!!! 
 
Below is a close up of this card. BTW did you see that I added Wink of Stella to the flower and some spots of the frog? this little trick highlight some areas of your card! This is another quick tip to add a little something-something!! this doesn’t add any bulkiness to the card and it makes it look shinning and stunning!!! give it a try and you will fall in love with the results! Let me tell you this dandy super cool tool makes wonders on your card!!!  
 
Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make a three cute card very easy!!

Here is the second card with this stamp set! this is as well very simple to make and as mentioned before I went with the color combination from the sheets on this DSP, in this case I focused on the clean look from the whisper white DSP with basic black lines and I used the Shaded Spruce and Granny Apple Green to add color to this card.
 
Check out the video tutorial showing you how to make a three cute card very easy!!

For this card as you can see I did a technique with the little frog!!! I colored with Shaded Spruce, but then I went back with the color lifter and added spots with this marker!! and this cool super easy technique gave this frog some texture! 
 
Below is the close up picture of this card! Did you notice those glitter enamel dots?? they color coordinate perfectly as well as these are in Granny Apple Green! I cannot get tired to repeat that I love how everything color coordinate perfectly and this is one of the most important features that you would love from Stampin’ Up! products!! It really makes it super easy to design cards or any paper craft project for that matter.  Just pick the colors and bring out the embellishments in the same colors and you will see that this will also help with the flow of ideas on how to make a card.

Finally this is the third card using the Hoppy Together stamp set! same as the previous two cards, I used the Tropical Escape DSP as inspiration for the color combos! so again, see how easy it is to come up with cards using this method of using the color combinations from the paper packs.

For this card I used the Shaded Spruce as the card base and I enhanced this card using the Blushing Bride for the banners and then the Granny Apple Green for the scallop circle under the whisper white die cut circle. 
 
The little frog was colored exactly as the one in the first card, however I did not use goggling eyes as it would cover the lenses, but I added Wink of Stella to the glasses! Below a close up of this card.

Same as last month we are doing this blog hop to show you a second project using the same stamp set we used for the tutorial bundle, so you can get more ideas for the sets that we used and hopefully get you inspired to do some papercrafting! exciting right??


My project used the Birthday Cheer stamp set!! and I can tell this is a fantastic addition to your stamp collection as it has big sentiments and though this set is meant to be used for Birthday celebrations, you can see on the image below that it can be used for multiple celebrations!!  you can easily use this stamp set for graduations, retirement cards, a special day for your loved ones, a promotion, you name it!! it also contains images that are great for coloring!! and for this you can use watercolor pencils, stampin’ blends, aqua painters, etc.  So this stamp set gives you lots and lots of possibilities!! 



For the card that I am showcasing in this blog hop, I wanted to make a simple yet really cute celebration card, so I paired this stamp set with the “How Sweet it is” designer series paper!! this paper pack has great, bright colors that just yells happiness all over. Also this paper pack has some sheets with big elements that can be cut out and make great embellishments, which is exactly what I did for this card!

I decided to fussy cut the cupcake and candies from one of the sheets on the How Sweet it is designer series paper and add them as a way to embellish this card. These cute elements go really well with the sentiment and they are so easy to add.. I always recommend that if you are fussy cutting one afternoon, to do multiple images at that time, so that next time you are crafting you can ensemble many more cards easily.

Another little embellishment on this card is the glitter enamel dots on the sentiment, this cute little element go so well with this collection of products!! the colors on the glitter enamel dots are a perfect pair as these are also bright colors. 


In addition to the dots, I used as well a little of the Pineapple Punch grosgrain ribbon. I chose that color to pop up one of the colors on the designer series paper from the background. I honestly think that this makes the card look fantastic. What do you think??


From the pictures above you can see that this card is really easy to put together and with the products I list on the supply list below I am sure you can make so many cards. Note that with just one paper pack you can make lots and lots of celebration cards!!

Hello there! If you remember earlier this month I mentioned that I am partnering with an amazing team of demonstrators around the world in putting together a tutorial bundle for our customers! see this blog post
Since we are a brand new team being formed we decided it would be great to do a blog hop to let you know more about each of the designers from the Stamping Around the World Team, plus we would showcase the stamp set that we used on the tutorial that each of us created for the tutorial bundle!
 
I am sure you will get lots of inspiration just going thru the hop, plus you will see which sets are being included on the tutorial bundle 🙂
 
About Allie (me): I am originally from Mexico City, and moved here with a chemical company for which I have been working 16 years. I have been in United States – Texas for about 13 years, and while I miss dearly my family, friends and the food, I am not positive we would go back to Mexico. 
 
I have been a demonstrator for 11 years (this April) and I have not regretted the decision to join Stampin’ Up!, I love their stamps and the color coordination on all their products, I honestly think that this is what makes the designing of projects go so easy!
 
I am married to Edmundo for 12yrs and we have two little kids Oliver (2yrs) & Addison (4 mo) and a little 3 lbs yorkie Aitty. All of them keep me busy for sure 😉 but I would not have it differently! I love my family and they are my reason to keep going. 
 
 
The card I am showing you today features the Incredible Like You stamp set!! this is one of my favorite sets from the new occasion catalog!! I love that you can get so many looks with the same set, the fonts and sentiments on this set are also great for friendship cards.

The designer series paper that I used is the All my love. I can tell you that all the designs on this paper pack are fantastic and a lot of them can be used for valentine’s!! 
 
As you can see on the picture below, I used the flax ribbon, which is really soft! I thought this would be very similar in texture as the burlap ribbon, but I was wrong, this ribbon bends smoothly and has a soft texture. For this card I decided to cut it in half to have a thinner version and have the zigzag made with the ribbon under the whisper white circle.
