A Card For A Different Occasion

















Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project for the month. Can you believe we are in the middle of July already? I hope you all are enjoying your summer.

I made these cards a while ago because I was trying to build up my items to open an Etsy store, but, I realized that you really have to have a lot of stock and I don't really have a lot of time to do that now. At least I have some cards on hand. The Designer series paper is from Stampin' Up. I added them to A2 size cards which are black card stock. I added a piece of white card stock inside. I used the scraps to cut banners by hand. I ordered the punch later :) I used twine to wrap around the DSP before I adhered it and tied a bow, then I adhered the banners on top of the twine. I punched out a scallop in black and a circle in white, then stamped the sentiments.

The sentiments are from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set also from Stampin' Up. The sentiments are, thank you, I'm so sorry, thinking of you, With Sympathy, get well wishes, and just for you.

Thanks for stopping by. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Thanks Sheila for having me for another month.

Butterfly Bag and Card


















Hi Everyone,

I friend at work is retiring, so I made her this darling bag and matching card. I put Hershey kisses in the bag but some of us chipped in and got her a gift certificate to a nice restaurant.

Aren't these butterflies gorgeous? They are the thinlits from Stampin' Up. I just love them. I added pearls to them. The card is embossed. The bag has doilies on each side and I used the oval punch for handles. I put a piece of white card stock across so that the butterfly would stand out. After the fact, I should have embossed it the same as the card, but that's ok. I tied a piece of jute ribbon with hemp. I added a tiny pearl to the i on the sentiment.

Father's Day Card from a Sketch






















Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project. I joined a sketch challenge and decided that I would post my finished card for my project. I thought I would make mine a Father's Day card, seeing that it is Sunday.

For my card, which is a 3 1/2" x 5" base in whisper white card stock, I embossed a piece of chocolate card stock which is cut at 3" x 4" and the patterned paper which is cut at 2 3/8" x 3 1/2". The tag was made using the scallop tag punch. The ribbon is Early Espresso and the sentiments are from Sheltering Tree and Teeny Tiny Wishes. All the products used are from Stampin' Up.

I'm so glad that we are in the "KISS" (Keep it simple sassy) season because I am finding it hard to get creative. 

Thank you so much Sheila for having me and thank you all for stopping by. Have a wonderful weekend.

Card Party Cards

Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for another post this month. Thank you Sheila :) I went to my very first card party and I wanted to share the cards that I made. It was fun and I know that everyone does the parties different. At this party, the hostess made all the cards ahead of time, then gave us all the supplies, one at a time to make from her samples. I know Sheila has card parties and does them another way :)
We each got to make 5 cards, she also gave us the envelopes. Some people decorated them their way.
I think they are all very pretty cards and I would re-make them to give away.






















Thanks for stopping by. See you soon :)

Mother's Day Card and Box
















Hello Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here posting my project for the month. I made a box and a card for my mom for mother's day. I put a little candle in the box. On the card, I used white card stock for the base of the card. I took another piece as a layer and used the butterfly thinlits from Stampin' Up and cut out the butterfly. I adhered that to the card. I used a glue stick on the cut out and added dazzling diamonds to give it shimmer. I then cut out two more butterflies, one with a piece of white card stock and one with patterned paper. I used glue dots on the white butterfly and adhered that down, then I used dimensionals on the patterned butterfly and attached that to the white one.
I cut out two labels with a punch, one white and one patterned, and layered them. I used dimensionals to pop it up. The sentiment is from Mom You Rock from Creative Time For Me. Finally, I added some rhinestones.



 Isn't the dimension of the butterfly awesome? So pretty.

On the box, I used the same patterned paper. On the lid I used white card stock, the scallop punch from Stampin' Up was used to make a border. I adhered each section to the inside.

On the top, I stamped an image from Butterfly Basics, I cut out one butterfly in white and stamped the other butterfly, then cut it out and adhered it to the first one. I added some twine and rhinestones. The image is from Teeny Tiny Wishes, that was punched out with the word window punch. I just love how this set came out. That's my project for you. Thanks for stopping by and thanks again Sheila for having me.

Screen Divider Card with Envelope


























Hello my fellow scrappers,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share another project for the month. I saw this card on Dawn's site and fell in love with it. I love cards that are different and this card can be made for so many different occasions. I made it for a friend's birthday.

It starts off with card stock measured at 5 1/2" x 11". You need to cut 4 each of layers of colors of your choice, the card stock, I used blue, for the layers, I used white, measured at 2 1/8" x 4", yellow, measured at 2 3/8" x 4 1/4" and black, measured at 2 1/2" x 4 3/8".

The base of the card, score it on the landscape side, (the 11" side,) at 2 3/4", 5 1/2", and 8 1/4". Fold the card in half and put a pencil mark at the bottom of the score line to use as a guide for punching a border. I used a scallop border. Then you can fold the card, mountain and valley folds. On the bottom, the decorative label punch was used to create "feet" for the card to stand.

Then you decorate the top layer of each panel and adhere them together and then to the base and you have this darling card. I just love it. "Thanks Dawn" :)

The envelope was made on the envelope punch board, starting out with a piece of card stock measured at 9 1/4" x 9 1/4", the first score will be at 4 3/8" then you just score each corner from there. I also rounded off the corners. I stamped a cupcake and a sentiment on the envelope.

Well, there you have it, a sweet card and envelope to match. Thanks for stopping by and thanks Sheila for having me for another month :)

How to do 3 step stamping




















Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to show you my project for this month. I decided that I haven't been good at posting pictures of the process of my projects, so I figured that I would show you how I do my 3 step stamping. I'm sure most of you know how to do it, but, I just wanted to show how I do it.

I used The Sweet Life stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. The roses are gorgeous, they have dies so that you can cut them out using a cuttlebug or a Big Shot, but I decided that I would just stamp. Another stamp set I used is Butterfly Basics from Stampin' Up. I used the background stamp to cover the base of the card to give it texture. I used Lavender Lace for that. The sentiment, the butterfly and the fern are also from Butterfly Basics. I stamped the butterfly twice with Soft Suede. The first one was stamped on the card, then the second one was cut out and adhered to the stamped image. I folded the wings up a little to give it dimension. I just inked the top of the fern with Pear Pizzazz to stamp it at the bottom.

The inks I used for the rose are Lavender Lace, Perfect Plum and Blackberry Bliss all from Stampin' Up. The trick is to use 3 of the same color family, light, medium, dark. Or you could use the darkest ink and stamp off between layers.















Here are the three stamps.















The first step, I used the lightest color, Lavender Lace for the base stamp.















The second step, the medium color, Perfect Plum was used. Now the rose comes to life.















The third and final step, I used the darkest color, Blackberry Bliss.




























Isn't it pretty? For the leaves, it's two steps, the first color, I used Pear Pizzazz, which is green ,and for the layer, I used Soft Suede, which is brown.
















That's my project :) I hope you find it useful if you are new to three step stamping. Thanks Sheila for having me and I hope you give this a try.
