Sign up for Stamp Camp and Make an Outhouse

I do have a project to share with you today, a cute little outhouse (yep, that’s what I said) but first I want to tell you about my upcoming Stamp Camp. I’m very excited about it. You’ll have 8 hours with no kids, no pets, no job, no worries – just stamping and shopping with friends!

Stamp Camp

Saturday, June 3, 2017, 9am-5pm

Candy’s Stampin’ Studio in Atlanta, GA

Register here by May 20. Prepayment is necessary to make sure I have enough of everything on hand. Space is limited so register soon. Also, the earlier you register, the more prize drawing tickets you will receive at the door!

Click here for all the details.

And now, todays project. I made a bunch of products for the OnStage display board using the new Wood Textures Suite. When I saw the crescent moon shaped die, I knew I had to make an outhouse. I mean, isn’t that the first thing that came to your mind? No? Just me? Well anyway, check it out. I thinks it’s cute as can be.

Here’s what I made:

Die cut using the Home Sweet Home Thinlits:

  • 2 pieces of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper (DSP) with the house die
  • 1 piece of scrap card stock (CS) with the house die

Die cut using the Wood Crate Framelits:

  • moon out of one DSP door

Created a template for the inside:

  • cut the door off of the CS piece, then cut off the top half of the door
  • traced around the bottom part of the door on another piece of scrap CS
  • measured and used a ruler to draw the rest of the template: sides, top, and bottom
  • cut another piece of the DSP with my Paper Snips, using the template
  • cut the hole for the “seat” with the 3/4″ Circle Punch

This is the template for the inner part of the outhouse - Wood Textures DSP, Wood Crate Framelits, Home Sweet Home Thinlits, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Made the grass for around the outhouse:

  • cut pieces of Old Olive CS to fit around the bottom of the house
  • used Paper Snips to cut cut cut all the grass blades, being sure not to cut all the way through to the other edge
  • crumpled the blades with my fingers

Made the toilet paper:

  • I used a scrap of Whisper White CS (approximately 1/2″ x 8″)
  • used a Smoky Slate Stampin’ Write Marker to draw tiny “perforations” along about 1-1/2″ or so of one end
  • put a tiny bead of glue down the side without perforations, leaving about 3/4″ at the end without glue
  • roll up with your fingers (you might find it helpful to wrap it around a wooden skewer to get it started) leaving the “perforated” end free

Assembled the outhouse:

  • two DSP die cuts glued together to make the house, leaving open the side that has the moon
  • insert folded into shape and glued inside the house
  • toilet paper roll glued to the seat
  • grass pieces glued to the sides of the house

Jar of Love Bundle For You

I’ve been playing with the Jar of Love Bundle quite a bit lately. It’s really versatile. It consists of the Jar of Love stamp set and the Everyday Jars Framelits Dies – bundled together to save you 10%! For today’s For You card, I used the bundle along with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch, Ruched Ribbon, and Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper. It looks more complicated and time consuming than it is. The dies and Big Shot make quick work of all that cutting.

 

Here’s what I made:

Sweet For You card made with Jar of Love Bundle by Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Night of Navy card stock (CS) to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Affectionately Yours Designer Series Paper (DSP) to 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • Whisper White CS to 2″ x 5-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for inside

Use Scalloped Tag Topper Punch:

  • one end of 2″ Whisper White CS (if it is longer than you’d like, trim off some from the other end with your Stampin’ Trimmer)

Stamped with the Jar of Love stamp set:

  • medium sized jar in Basic Gray ink onto Window Sheet
  • medium sized jar in Smoky Slate ink onto 2″ Whisper White tag
  • burlap in Delightful Dijon ink onto Whisper White CS scrap
  • sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto burlap image
  • two-step flowers in Flirty Flamingo and Watermelon Wonder inks onto Whisper White CS
  • stems in Pear Pizzazz ink onto Pear Pizzazz CS

Die cut using the Everyday Jars Framelits:

  • jar stamped on Window Sheet
  • flowers and stems

Fussy cut with Paper Snips:

  • burlap label image

Assembled the card:

  • stems and flowers glued onto tag, using Smoky Slate jar image as a guide
  • adhered clear jar over jar stamped on tag, using Fast Fuse around bottom and side edges
  • adhered burlap image to clear jar using Fast Fuse
  • tied a piece of Flirty Flamingo 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon through the hole in the tag
  • tag glued to DSP
  • DSP glued to front of card base
  • Whisper White CS glued to inside of card base
