Stockings Full of Cheers


Nancy Hill for the Frantic Stamper Design Team and I want to share with you three Christmas stockings using the new Frantic Stamper Winter dies and stamp sets along with a few other Frantic Stamper dies and stamps.  

Don't you love the coordinating dies and stamp sets from Frantic Stamper.  What beautiful collections for all of your Christmas paper projects for this 2017 year.

I used a stocking template and used a variety of Frantic Stamper dies and stamps sets in the winter and Christmas 2017 collections to make these stocking pocket holders for gift cards, jewelry or treats like this hot chocolate package.  I will hang these stockings on my Christmas tree and give them to guest and family on Christmas eve and morning.

I used the Frantic Stamper Pinprick Snow Flake Background die on the metallic cardstock on each stocking before adding the embellishments, dies and stamps.  I used a light brown Copic marker for parts of the Frantic Stamper Cup of Cocoa die set of marsh mellows and the whip cream on the hot cocoa cup to bring out the gorgeous die cut.  I also colored the adorable Frantic Stamper Sweet Holly Snowman with Copic markers and added a plaid ribbon behind the scarf.  

Two of the stockings, I cut out the Frantic Stamper Snowflake Border, added a rhinestone to the center of each snowflake and adhered it to the stocking.  On one stocking, the sentiment was stamped on the gorgeous Frantic Stamper Elemental Petal #19 die.

Now is your turn to use your imagination and creativity to design your own Christmas stocking pocket holders using the coordinating dies and stamps from Frantic Stamper on-line store and have fun personalizing it and putting some goodies in the mug for that special person. 




Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Hudler's First birthday doggie card

Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team and sharing with you a card that I made today.  Loads of fun making a birthday card for my son and daughter-in-laws doggie's first birthday.  They gave him a birthday party.  



I have had so much fun with the Heartfelt Creations My Pampered Pooch coordinating paper, dies and stamp collections that I got from The Rubber Buggy.  I started with poster board cut 6 1/4" x 21" and scored it every six inches.  

The fun begins picking out papers and stamps for the little pet.  The gate is in a different Heartfelt Creations collection.  The gate opens up to another scene with several dogs.  I call it the birthday party of friends scene.  

I used the Heartfelt Creations Delightful Daisy stamp and die set and glued the daisies across the gate.  The daisy's petal in the corner of the gate is holding the gate shut until someone opens it up.  The daisies were colored with Copic markers and Mini Heart Gold Prills were glued in the center.  I added additional glue to the center again and added more Prills to bring out the center of the daisies.

I added the dog to the front of the gate and colored with Copic markers.  I cut out the same dog and colored with Copic markers and cut parts of the dog and glued to the back of the gate.  (See photo below).  I used gray and light brown Copic markers to color parts of the gate.

I love the bone stamp and die set and the variety of adorable pet sentiments in this collection.  I stamp some of these sentiments in the bones.

Frantic Stamper Mugs and Kisses

 Frantic Stamper.com has these amazing coordinating stamps and dies and also carries top-named brand paper craft items, dies and stamps from other companies.  Frantic Stamper has great customer service and fast delivery.   I am sharing this tutorial and new dies and stamps from the Frantic Stamper Winter Theme found in October's folder.

Once a week, a couple groups of my friends and I go out for coffee and tea at coffee shop.  We celebrate birthdays and holidays at that time.  

I designed this paper coffee mug to hold an envelope full of chocolate, coffee or tea besides holding a gift certificate or card.  After having so much fun making the first one, you will not want to stop making more.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial that I created for you.

 1)  MUG:   Cut 4 ” x 9 1/2” cardstock.  If you are wanting to emboss or stamp the mug, it is best to do this after cutting this rectangle out before assembling the mug.  





2) Measure ½” on both sides on bottom of folded cardstock and mark.  Draw a line from the top to the ½” mark below.  Cut  bottom mark to corner of top on each side.  

3)  Cut two 2” x 4 3/4” cardstock and score every 
½” length.  Fold each score mark.
                        
4)  Using double-sided tape, Scor-Tape preferred, on both ends of the scored cardstock, insert each side on the sides of the mug. 
This may be tricky about the edges sticking just perfectly but  the cup sleeve will hide most of the imperfections.  Also, if the the sides of the mug hang over of the mug or visa versus, just cut some of the top with the sides together so that the the sides and mugs are aligned.

 5)  LID:   Cut cardstock at 2 ½” x 4 3/4” and score in center at 1 1/4" and fold.  

6)  Mark ¼” on the top of the fold line on each side and cut from mark to corner of bottom on each side.  Glue a thin line the side edges and stick together.
7)  Side of Lid:  Cut two strips measuring 1/2" x 4 3/4".  Using two-sided tape, tape one strip on front and back of lid.



8) CUP SLEEVE:   Cut 1 ½” x 3 ½ and optional to emboss or stamp the cup sleeve.  Glue to the front and if you want the back to match the front, repeat these steps.  After glueing the cup sleeve on the mug, cut any part of the cup sleeve extending over the edge of the mug to make it fit the mug better.  






Now is your turn to use your imagination and creativity to design your own paper mug and have fun personalizing it and putting some goodies in the mug for that special person. 



I can't wait to see the possibilities that you will create making a coffee or tea mug from the coordinating dies and stamps from Frantic Stamper on-line store.  


Enjoy and Happy Crafting!

Special Hugs for You


Nancy Hill for The Rubber Buggy Design Team.  I love working with collections of coordinating paper, dies and stamp sets of the Heartfelt Creations collections.  The Rubber Buggy carries the Heartfelt Creations collections that went into my card.  The Rubber Buggy carries name-brand craft products and has wonderful customer service and nice fast delivery right to your door step. 

Isn't the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia collection of coordinating paper, dies and stamp sets gorgeous.  I stamped the Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Bouquet stamp on white cardstock and used the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die set as the background of this stamp.  The bouquet was colored with colored pencils and Copic markers.  The Heartfelt Creations Classic Small Petunia flowers stamp was on white cardstock and inked with Ranger Archival Deep Purple before cutting out with the Heartfelt Creations Classic Small Petunia die set.

 I just love the doves found in the Heartfelt Creations Dogwood collection.  This dove came from the Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood and Dove stamp and Heartfelt Creations Flowering Dogwood and Dove die set.  I used light blue Copic markers for the shadows on the dove.  The patterned paper is from the Heartfelt Creations Class Petunia Paper.

 I applied the NUVO Crystal Drops Gloss White  in the center of the petunias and on the right top corner.  I added a May Arts 1 1/2" wide White ribbon tied into a bow and added a pearl/rhinestone slider buckle in the center of the bow.  I always use Scor-Tape to adhere ribbons to my cards.  
Inside of Card:  Heartfelt Creations Class Petunia Paper was used as the background. Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Oval die  cut out with white cardstock, Heartfelt Creations Wishes stamp set stamped in Ranger Black in.Heartfelt Creations Classic Petunia Bouquet stamp in a purple but used as a watermark behind the sentiment.
