Broadway Birthday, The Crafty Carrot Co


I'm so glad the Broadway Birthday stamp set and coordinating dies are sticking around for another Stampin' Up! Catalogue year. Every cardmaker needs a versatile birthday set in their collection.

Throughout June, The Crafty Carrot Co can't wait to show you just how well-rounded this stamp set really is!  We are pairing it with patterned papers (new and old) to create unique looks and variations to make any of your loved ones feel like a star on their birthday!

For my card today, I decided to cut up those busy Broadway Bound papers and share a quick and easy layout idea. It was a great opportunity to feature the bold Lemon Lime twist tone that retires this month.

Favourite Colouring Technique, Let's Get Hopping #20


The Let's Get Hopping crew are sharing colouring techniques with you today.

When I was first introduced to the Stampin' Up! Blender Pen, I was like

"Wait... you're telling me I can use this pen to colour with ink from my inkpads?  That this one little marker can become ANY colour and then cleans off on scrap paper ready for the next tone?  SOLD!"

I'm super thrifty, so a pen that can double purpose my ink collection and can be cleaned and reused used over and over again just makes sense!


I love the soft ombre tones you can achieve with this marker. I feel like I have more control over the colour than I might have with some other colouring mediums as it's easy to collect as little, or as much ink, as you like to get the effect you want.

Granted, I find it suits adding colour to smaller images best.  It was certainly perfect for adding the Grapefruit Grove and Call Me Clover tones to the florals in the stamping on this gift bag project.

This is an alternate design of a gift bag set I featured *here* on my blog last week. Learn how to hack your Gift Bag Punch Board to create gift bags this size (perfect for handmade cards) in my Tutorial Bundle for this tool.  This full colour, step-by-step printable pdf includes three alternate project ideas and at just $3US it's an absolute steal!

For Family, Fancy Friday Blog Hop


Hello!  Today, I'm joining the Fancy Friday blog hop as we share projects created especially for family.  This theme was perfect for creating a class around!

When I made this gift bag, it was not my intention to create a full set of projects.  We have been featuring the Gift Bag Punch Board in class these past few months.  I wanted to show class participants how the tool could be used to create an extra large gift bag that would fit their handmade cards in.  Who else loves giving packs of their own handmade cards as gifts?


Once I cut the 12"x 12" designer series patterned paper pieces for this project, I was left with two panels that were perfect for matching cards - and so a set was born!


Each participant enjoyed choosing one piece of 12" x 12" paper to work with and pairing it with whatever sentiment they liked.  Popular choices were Easter, birthday and Mother's Day.

Supplies for the cards 
Stamps: Touches of Texture plus a sentiment, here I've used Itty Bitty Greetings and Best Bunny
Card: Whisper White, Gray Granite
Paper: Neutrals Designer Series Paper (this particular pattern is retired but you could easily substitute with ANY paper that calls to you)
Ink: Granite Gray, Call Me Clover, Grapefruit Grove, Petal Pink, VersaMark
Accessories & Tools:  White embossing powder, Heat Tool, Blender Pen, Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker
Adhesives: Tear'n'Tape, Dimensionals, Multipurpose Glue


Bonus gift box
The class was held in the week before Easter, so it seemed fitting to squeeze in this little bonus Easter gift box.  Another example of a different idea for the Gift Bag Punch Board.


Do you have the Gift Bag Punch Board at home?  Make the most out of this tool and pick up a copy of my tutorial bundle today.  It includes three alternate project ideas and at just $3US it's an absolute steal!


 Includes a 12 page, full-colour PDF with step-by-step photos and instructions in both A4 and Letter format.  Just $3US
