Stampin' Up's Build a Birthday Cake with New In Colours: Sneak PeeksTime!

 I have another card today using the Build a Birthday and it's kind of a half cake ;-) Not the kind I like in real life!! Lol! This cake was made up using a mixture of stamping and washi tape...
 I heat embossed the little flags with gold powder.
  I used the 1/8" hole punch to hold the twine in place and to prevent it from making the bottom of this card being unstable. 
This yummy twine is from the Painted Blooms set and finishes on the 2nd June so if you want need some please order yours by this date :-) 
Also, I have a little video sharing this technique using the slightly smaller 1/16" hole punch HERE
 I stamped the bottom layer in new In Colour Tip Top Taupe then heat embossed in gold the sentiment included in this cute set. The rest of the cake is Wash tape :-)
 See, I raised the panel on dimensionals too 
 and a top view to finish today!
Well, I hope you have enjoyed this little peek at what's coming soon in the brand spanking NEW CATTY. If you want your very own copy please SEE HERE for how to get your sticky mitts on one - really soon!!
Thanks for looking today

TMT: Video Tutorial Make a File Box for your SU! Notecards

*Edit to say: So, last night I waited and waited... and waited for this video to upload but, after 5 long hours and at a very late hour, I finally conceded defeat! As such this weeks video has been pushed to Wednesday :-( Massive apologies but I really hope you enjoy it after all the waiting! *mwah**
I'm here today with another Video Tutorial for you. It's a nice long video for you this week which is why it's taken about 4 hours to upload to YouTube so far tonight! 
In this weeks video I share with you how I designed and made a file folder box for your SU! note cards. I forgot I made an A5 size file a couple of years ago so I'll make that into a video for you as well in the coming weeks ;-)
So, first up I'll share the photographs with you :-)
Here are the files- a side view!
 The front of the files,
 I added DSP to the rear too. this is a new paper called Cherry on Top available after 2nd June 2015.
 and next to each other

As promised in the video here are all the measurements for you if you didn't get them down quick enough during the film! Although they will make a lot more sense once you watch it ;-)
Cut your card to 23cm (9+1/16") on the long side and 13.5 (5+5/16") on the short, score at 10cm (3+15/16") and 13cm (5+1/8")
Take one of the off cuts and trim to 17.8cm (7") by 5cm (1+31/32"). Score round three sides (2 long, one short) at 1cm in (3/8") then along from the smallest 1cm line score again at 10.8cm (4+14").

OK, here's the video to go with all those numbers...

I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial and if it works for you please remember to share it with me :-)
Thanks for looking today,

Stampin' Up! Ronald McDonald Charity Stamp Set 2015/16- Sprinkles of Life

Happy Bank Holiday Monday to youu!
I have an extensive stint in my craft room planned for today- well this afternoon as it's getting on now, but I have gotten all my house jobs done already so I can craft guilt free this afternoon, whoop :-)
Oh, how I love this new stamp set, Sprinkles Of Life! It's this years charity stamp set designed by SU! and supporting the Ronald McDonald House charities. There are so many reasons to love this set - it's just so pretty! and it has a super duper matching punch too!!
So, here is a super quick card I made with this set...
(not the best pictures as I took them at night before I gave it away)
 I added some of the new Cherry on Top Washi tape across the bottom
I stamped the cake top then coloured in using a blender pen and just a touch of ink from the lid of the ink pad 
 and a top view to finish, cute huh?
OK, so that's me for now, I'm off to make some cards for class, film a video and finish up a couple of commission cards for Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. Then we have a cricket BBQ this evening before I go to work tonight so I think I had better get cracking ;-)
Thanks for stopping by today, enjoy your bank holiday Monday whatever you have planned

Adventure Bound DSP Stack with Heat Embossed Sentiment.

I have another card today using the very lovely Adventure Bound paper stack. Please remember this stack is only available 'till the 1st June so if you need it... you know what to do right? It's a fab paper stack ;-)
OK, lets take a little look at the card. 
 I added these little wooden leaves on a nest of linen thread for a bit of something extra ;-)
They just add a little extra diemension to the bottom corner. I do love this paper though don't you?
 As you know (if you've been here before) I love to heat emboss sentiments directly onto this DSP and this one is from the "Really Good Greetings" set which just FYI is retiring late on the 1st June also. 
I then went over it using espresso ink and a sponge to make it pop.
 And a top view to finish today.
So that was today's card. I hope you liked it?
 I'll be back tomorrow with another one for you,
Stampin' Hugs,
