Creative Circle Design Team- Never Ending Cube!

img_4251

 

Hello there Crafty Friends!

Today we are showcasing the amazing project- The Never Ending Cube, designed by our awesome leader- Liz Holloway! And, today we welcome our newest Designer- Kate Creasey, who is a real pro with her Silhouette machine (I am still learning all the features of my machine). Welcome Kate! So glad you joined our group!

Today’s project is the “Never-Ending Cube”, which uses 8 cubes that are 2″x 2″.  Liz sent all of us a copy of the file for our Silhouette machines, as well as a video on how to assemble it. I used clear packing tape to put my cube together, as my duct tape was hot pink and I was afraid it would be visible on the edges. I decided early on that I wanted my cube to feature all our new Christmas stamp sets, and boy-it was so much fun! This is my first time making a never-ending cube, and let me tell you- the possibilities are endless! I can see using photos to make this into a wonderful photo cube (great gift idea!). Don’t have a Silhouette? No problem, there is a PDF file and you can easily cut them by hand. Let me know if you would like this pattern, I am able to give it away to customers who place a $20 order (or more) in my online store this month. Just remember to use Hostess Code:  KXTUSMXP (and please don’t click “No contact” so I will know who to email the pattern to!) Let me know if you have any questions. Without further ado, here is my version of the Never-Ending Cube.

Stampin Friends Blog Hop- Thank You!

SFblog

 

Welcome to our October Blog Hop!! This month our theme is Thanks, Thanksgiving, and Thankfulness. I have needed a lot of Thank You cards lately, and I wanted to showcase a card and project that might inspire you too! As always, everything is available in my online store, and I’m happy to help you if you need anything, let me know!

As you know, I am involved in four blog hops with four different groups of stampers. Today it just so happens that two of the hops coincide- I worried about this happening…. but if you want to see more on this theme, come back tonight at 9 PM eastern time and you’ll see some more projects!

Everyone knows how much I love owls, right? Well, today’s projects feature my beloved owls.

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!
The card is made with the new hostess set from the 2016 Holiday Catalog called “Cozy Critters”. I pulled in the tree stump from Foxy  Friends so my little fox would have someplace to sit. Guess what I used for the owl’s eyes? The 1/8″ hand-held punch worked perfectly for the smallest pieces. (The scarves on both the owl and fox were hand-cut).  And the greeting is from “Acorny Thank You” that carried over from last year.

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!
I wanted my little owl house to be cute and woodsy, I started by just stamping the door on my piece with the hardwood background stamp in Early Espresso ink on my crumb cake cardstock. (First I cut the two pieces from Home Sweet Home thinlits dies. Use post-it notes to mask off so ink doesn’t get on the house).

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!
Use our wonderful Tear-n-Tape to assemble your little houses, you don’t want them popping open or falling apart. Love our heavy duty double sided Tear-n-Tape for projects like this!! I made a custom roof so it would look more rustic.

by Lynn Streifert www.Lynnzcrafters.com ©Stampin' Up!
The August  Paper Pumpkin kit had these adorable wooden accent pieces, I thought they added a nice touch to my little fall project, what do you think?

It’s a little retro-Vintage looking, do you agree?

Don’t forget to enter the contest for our Mystery Giveaway- be sure to leave me a comment. I love to hear from you!

Creative Circle Design Team Pop-Up Card… October 2016

cclogo

 

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for joining our blog hop today! I’m so excited about our newest Designer to join our team- the uber talented Michelle Suit! You are going to love her awesome punch art and Disney creations I’m sure. Today on the blog hop, we are showcasing the very fun Pop-Up Card! It has taken the paper crafting world and Pinterest by storm, and our amazing leader, Liz Holloway, came up with a Silhouette file and sent it to us to create our own versions of a Pop-Up Card! I can’t wait to see what everyone came up with! I decided to use all  new products from the 2016 Holiday Catalog by Stampin’ Up! (if you don’t have a demonstrator and need a catalog, let me know- I’d love to mail you one!)

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

Here is the outside of my card.. does it look spooky?

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

Here is the view of the card as I took off the belly band, you can see the folded insert- it is going to POP-Up…

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

It’s hard to get a full view of the card as it is sooooo big when it is open….

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

Close up of the right side.

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

 

I stamped all the images in Versamark ink, then used black embossing powder and my handy dandy heat tool to emboss all the images. It made coloring, sponging and shading so much easier!

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

 

I used Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Smoky Slate, and Soft Sky inks to sponge and color in the images and backgrounds (to match the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper).

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

 

Did you know if you want a “softer look”, you can just put some ink from our awesome Stampin’ Markers directly onto a clear block, then pull the color off with our blender pens and you can create a softer, lighter tone while coloring. I love that you can accomplish great shading with our markers and inks and blender pens!

img_7610

I thought the whisper white paper was too stark, and sponged smokey slate ink directly on my 2 1/2″ squares to give them some spooky effects.

 

img_7603

This is what my piece of 12″ x 12″ basic black card stock looked like after I cut it on the Silhouette Cameo machine with Liz’s file.

img_7604

Decided to use the specialty piece as my card base, can you see the silver embossing on the spider web? It’s amazing! (cut it 4 1/4″ x 11″)

img_7605

I traced the pop-up portion directly onto my grid paper, cut it out to use as a stencil, then shaved 1/8″ off all 5 sides for my two inserts.

 

img_7606

Our fantastic Tear-n-Tape is the perfect choice to assemble this card, and ensure nothing comes off (I’m sure this card is going to get opened a hundred times)… just strategically place the tear-n-tape on the non-moving parts. (the two pieces that look like arrows need NO adhesive, or the card won’t open).

img_7607

Assembling the card…

img_7608

The four panel pop-up card insert gets strategically placed and I used more tear-n-tape to adhere them to the pop-up card base. Liz’s video makes this so easy, sorry my photo doesn’t show this step very clearly.

Lynn Streifert ©Stampin’ Up! www.Lynnzcrafters.com

So there it is, my first Pop-Up Card, what do you think?? I treasure your comments, and can’t wait to hear what you think of my Halloween Pop-Up Card! (Comment field is all the way at the bottom of this post).

Ready to go hop over to see what Michelle has created for us? I’m so excited too! Click the image below:   http://www.suitablystamped.com/2016/10/creative-circle-design-team-october.html

Thank you all for visiting my blog today, thank you for your kind words and prayers for my family, we’ve certainly been challenged these past two months… we appreciate all the love and prayers. My sweet mother is teaching me so many lessons about courage and faith. Her battle with cancer is exhausting her, and we are struggling with her suffering. The fundraiser that I started for my dear sister-in-law, Kathy Streifert, has just reached the half-way point. Kathy has had a 22 year battle with Crohn’s disease, and is out of work indefinitely. As a waitress in a local restaurant with no sick days, or paid time off, and astronomical hospital bills and deductibles, I started the “Go Fund Me” campaign. You can read about it, and/or donate here, thank you!

We Create Blog Hop October 2016

WCBH2016

 

Hello there crafty friends,

October 1st sure rolled around pretty quickly and snuck up on me. Today’s offering is a quick post, the format for this hop is usually one project and then a “stepped up” version of the same project. Forgive me, but with everything going on with my family- I decided to share with you my four Make-and-Take projects for my Stampin’ Up! Bingo night last night. I hope you like these offerings, and don’t mind that I didn’t stick to the formula this month. (Sometimes priorities conflict with my time to craft and blog).

So here you go:

It was s “Fall Theme” bingo night.

Basket of Wishes is a fun set to watercolor, and doesn’t it just pop on the shimmer white paper?

Cookie-cutter Halloween is one of my favorite stamp sets in this holiday catalog.


I pulled out the vintage leaves stamps at and matching framelits-it’s a great card for the fall, don’t you think?

I have to admit that I finished these cards on our retreat last weekend and I had some inspiration from another demonstrator -thanks to Debbie Henderson for the awesome inspiration! I love her work and style, and just tweaked two of her cards to fit into my plans for my bingo night.

 

Also, since today is October 1st, and the Official Celebration of “World Card Making Day”- Stampin’ Up! is kicking off this event with some specials:

I’m Sorry….

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted in a while, the past 3 weeks have been difficult as my sweet mother was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer that has spread to her stomach. During her week long hospital stay, in addition to biopsies, she had a chemo power port put in and today started her weekly chemo treatments. My family and I are so thankful for the wonderful doctors, nurses, friends and family who have been so positive and helpful.  I needed to cancel several card classes, swaps, blog hops and team get togethers these past 3 weeks so I could spend time with my family. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I know it will be a long and challenging road, but with our faith, family and each other, we will travel this path together. I have had no real desire (up until today) to even go in my craft room. But after talking to my mom about how chemo went today, she was full of funny stories and no side effects (yet). So tonight I made some cards, planned my club for this weekend, and decided to write a blog post.

I went online to the Stampin’ Up! website today to catch up on some updates and wanted to pass on some news to you:

pp_bogo_customer-blog-post-headeraa3e1a583795661a8962ff0000f7f0e6

Paper Pumpkin is a monthly subscription service by Stampin’ Up! that delivers all the stamps, ink, and paper you need to create a papercrafting project. Everything is cut and ready to go so you can skip to the fun!

If you subscribe with the promo code between now and September 10, you will pay full price for the September kit and get the October kit free.

If you subscribe between September 11 and October 10, your first kit will be the October kit and you will get the November kit free.

  • After the first two months, the subscription will continue for $19.95 + tax per month (shipping included) unless cancelled or suspended. Ends October 10, 2016.
  • This offer is open to first-time subscribers only (This is tracked by the email account you sign up with, if you have a different email from one you used previously, then this deal could work for you.)
  • Not valid on prepaid subscriptions.
  • Ends October 10, 2016 (the last day to subscribe and get the October kit).
  • Offer invalid if subscription is suspended or cancelled during the first two months. In other words, subscribers cannot cancel or suspend their subscription during their first two months—if they do, the offer is void. You can’t put your subscription on hold or cancel until after the first two full months.
  • After you enter your shipping address and credit card info, be sure to type in my name Lynn Streifert as your demonstrator, so I will get credit for your order.
