Color Caddy Storage Tip

Do you store your ink pads in the Stampin’ Up! Color Caddy?  Do you love having all your supplies right at your fingertips?  Today I’ve got a quick tip for you that I got from another demostrator (networking is awesome for sharing of ideas).  Here’s a way to keep your ink pads and your Stampin’ Write markers right next to each other for easy access.

 Stampin-Up!-Ink-Caddy-Markers-Storage-#StampAfterSunriseHere’s the Tip

Move your ink pads over just a wee bit and you’ll have room to slide your marker right next to them.  Voila!  No need for one of those fancy-schmancy (and expensive) all-in-one type ink and marker holders.  Your Color Caddy can do it all!

That is, if you HAVE a Color Caddy!  What?  You don’t?  Well, now is a great time to invest in this great tool!  You can even use one of those fabulous $5 Bonus Bucks you earned last month! I just love how you can store all your ink refills on top as well!

Need Markers?

While you’re ordering  the Color Caddy, check to see if you need more markers. Grab those while you’re ordering!

Happy Birthday Gorgeous

It’s Monday!  What better way to start (or end) what’s usually considered the worse day of the week than by stamping.  It’s time for a “Make It Monday!” using one of my favorite new stamps – Happy Birthday Gorgeous!      I’m excited to bring you this gorgeous card from our project sheet co-op group!  It’s easy to make…and it incorporates a little technique too!

StampinUp Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Lemon Lime Twist, Fresh Florals Designer Paper Stack ,#StampAfterSunrise, DYI cards, paper crafts

I’m excited not only because it’s such a pretty card, but because we get to use the *new* Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets!  Have you tried these sheets yet?  They’re such a time saver!

SaA Few Tips:

  • Adhere the Lemon Lime Twist card stock (love this new In Color!) to the adhesive sheet then run through the Big Shot using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Die.  Peel off the adhesive sheet and adhere the Happy Birthday to a Whisper White Scallop Circle Framelits (used by cutting with the Big Shot).

Now let’s do a little assembly!

  • Start with your Lemon Lime Twist card base.  Layer on top of that with a slightly smaller piece of Whisper White.
  • On top of that you’ll adhere 2 pieces of 2 different designs of the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper.
  • Now you’ll take your Happy Birthday scallop circle and adhere it with Stampin’ Dimensionals in the center of the card.

Easy enough!

Next, we’re going to use the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set to stamp the sentiment on scrap  Whisper White card stock and punch out using the Classic Label Punch.  We’ll adhere this under the “happy birthday” using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Of course, you can always stamp a sentiment on additional Whisper White card stock and adhere it inside the card as well.  This stamp set has so many great sentiments to choose from!  If you haven’t invested in the Happy Birthday Gorgeous Bundle yet, you might want to reconsider.  In fact, add a couple more items to make it $50 and earn those July Bonus Days coupons!  Here’s a great $50 bundle idea:
