Hot Dog Make In Minutes Monday Card

Hot Dog Stampin' Up!

How to Make a Card with Stamps, Ink, and Paper

Hello Friends,

During these very uncertain times, everybody misses somebody.  So for today's Make It In Minutes Monday Card, I designed a Miss You Card using the Hot Dog stamp set from the January-June 2021 Stampin' Up! Mini Catalog.  Bonus, make this adorable handmade card with just stamps, ink, and paper!


Hot Dog Stampin' Up!

I love to stamp when I am stressed.  There's something magic about stamping.  Ink up your stamp and press it onto your paper then watch your paper come to life.  Just those few simple steps and BAM, you look like an artist!

Below I have Two Card Stamping Tips that will almost certainly ensure a successful Card Making Experience.


Hot Dog Stampin' Up!

The Stamparatus Stamp Positioning Tool covers a multitude of mistakes.  For today's card, I used it to stamp my White Ink on Poppy Parade Card Stock.  Because I used my Stamparatus I was able to stamp twice for a clear crisp stamped image.  I also used my Stamparatus to stamp my 2 dogs, bones, and my hi bubble.  This is especially important for getting the solid black inside the hi bubble.  I used acrylic blocks for stamping the rest of my images, but you could use the Stamparatus for all your stamping if you prefer.  

Here's a Quick Video Tutorial for using the Stamparatus.

Tip #2, if you do miss a little line when stamping it is possible to fix your mistake with a marker.  For instance, bet you would never know that my envelope up in the corner of my card wasn't perfect.  I made a quick fix on a missed line with my marker.

Made In Minutes Let It Snow Card

2Sis7QhfTm2qJUSz4viEfg

Hello Friends,

"Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow", wow, I have the Let It Snow song by Dean Martin stuck in my head.  This morning I woke up to big beautiful snowflakes!  I know that just saying that makes some people cringe, but I love snow especially after a weekend of turkey and stuffing, family fun, Christmas Trees, and Christmas music.  We had it all. This morning's snow is just the icing on the cake.  So naturally, today's Make It In Minutes Monday Card is a Let It Snow Card stamped with  Snowman Season stamps.

 

Snowman Season Stampin' Up!

Psst! Snowmen Are Some of the Easiest Things to Color!

Seriously, snowmen are mostly white so what's left to color?  Answer:  Very Little

So even though today's card involves coloring, it so minimal that it still fits in the Make It In Minutes Card Category.  Plus, there are so many different ways that you could color this adorable snowman from the Snowman Season Stamp Set. Let the card supplies you have on hand determine how you will color him.

  1. Have a set of watercolor pencils?  Color him with watercolor pencils.  See page 144 of your 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog. 
  2. Still new to the whole card making scene and you only own a few ink pads?  No problem.  Dip a Stampin' Blend (102845) into your into your ink pad to pick up a bit of color to add to your snowman.
  3. Or, try coloring his little details with a pack of Stampin' Write Markers (page 144 of your 2020-2021 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog
  4. If you are lucky enough to own some of the Stampin' Blends, color away with your blends.
  5. Bonus Tip!  Make your snowman sparkle.  Brush him with a Wink of Stella Glitter Brush (141897)

Game On Cubed Pop-Up Card

Game On Cubed Pop-Up Card

Hello Friends,

I had so much fun making the Game On Cubed Pop-Up Card for my Grandson Connor.  I love all the personal touches.  Can you guess how old he is?  The "So smart, so fun, so sweet and so wonderful!  We must be related" is actually the inside of the card.  The tag tucks down inside the tallest cube.  The sentiment is from the A Grand Kid stamp set.

For today's Cubed Pop Up Card I used Real Red Card Stock (Connor's favorite color) an In Good Taste Designer Paper (wood grains).

To personalize his birthday card to say "12"  I used the Playful Alphabet Dies.

I colored the Chess pieces and the dots on the die using Soft Suede and Real Red Markers.

All the game pieces were stamped with the Game On Stamp Set by Stampin' Up!.
