Old Style Case Storage

New Style for 2018

You do not need to invest lots of money to keep your stamp space tidy. This stamp pad storage costs pennies… 1/2 sheet of card stock for each stamp pad plus a sheet of foam core board for strength and separation and a bit of time. You can arrange your stamp pads any way that makes sense to you. I now have mine sitting on my window sill with a shelf over it keeps my stamp pads handy but off of my limited counter space. I could move them back to the cabinet where I had them before, but that cabinet is now filled with stamps, punches, and all those other supplies I keep in stamp cases. My entire stamp storage is 56 1/2″ wide and 3 1/2″ high. Another arrangement could be the In Colors on a 5th row and the specialty inks on the end.

I’ve been meaning to try this Bridge Fold layout. I think it’s very clever. I have seen some with a bridge that can fold down to make a kind of table. It’s great for a barbecue, kitchen stove, dresser, or that kind of thing. I went simple with just a vine. I used Animal Outing. I just love all the animals in this set! I thought the giraffe worked best, looking over the vine bridge.

My friend thought this card was going to be a lot of work. She imagined we’d be tearing and pasting all the little red (Cajun Craze) dots, but the Framelits did all the work for us. If you don’t have a Big Shot, you could substitute a bit of the coordinating Designer Series Paper over the side and bridge panels and just cut out the giraffe’s head with Snips.

Mix Detailed with Love, Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, and the Stamparatus, and you’ve got yourself a beautiful card. I actually changed the design up a bit for the video. My original is shown on the left and the one I did for the video is on the right. I have seen some gorgeous cards using the Stamparatus Hinge Step where the image faded from the top to the bottom. But those images were bigger and bolder, so there was only room for stamping three times. It works a lot better with just three.

The watercolor technique is perfect with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I used the colors in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. I think this card would work for just about any event and the sentiments in Another Wonderful year give you lots of options.

I designed this card with the new stamper in mind, but I couldn’t help myself. I had to add a bit more texture with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder. The pattern is so subtle, it’s difficult to photograph. Stampin’ Up! used to sell plain and textured card stock and this folder adds a similar texture. Of course, using the embossing folder means you will need a Big Shot, something the new stamper may not own. You could certainly use Watercolor Paper instead of the regular Whisper White Card Stock I used. That would give you the texture without the Big Shot.

Click here for the Cutting Plans and measurements for layers including 1/8″ increments.

Scraps? What scraps? I don’t have scraps, I have card bases and layers ready and waiting.

The basic card bases are 1/2 sheet of card stock, folded in half, resulting in a 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ card that fits in our medium envelopes. That gives you four options depending on which way you cut the card stock and which direction you put the fold. The vast majority of cards are one of the four. Add one more fold and you can make z-fold cards (Lots of Lavender, Star of Night, or Sharing Sweet Thoughts) or easel cards (Jar of Love or Bear Hugs). And of course, any of these cards can have any number and arrangements of layers. I think if you scroll my projects, you’ll recognize these basic cards. One of my most popular posts and YouTube videos has been my Basic Card Bases and Layers. I did that 4 years ago and I thought it was time to update it.

The video and detailed directions show how to cut your card stock and have them ready for creating a card in minutes. You can even have your local office supply store cut a stack of card stock for just a few dollars. These resources are perfect for not only card bases and layers, but they’re also just right for cutting pieces with the Big Shot.

I cut all scraps down to the basic layers and store each color in pouches. I didn’t explain in the video where I got the pouches. I cut my heavy duty recloseable bags down to 4 1/2″ high. (I think you could use quart-size freezer bags.) I added a piece of card stock, 6 5/8″ x 4 3/4″ and trimmed that down with the Envelope Punch Board to make file tabs. I have room for all the Stampin’ Up! colors in two photo boxes and there’s even room for envelopes in the boxes. Yes, I do keep full-size sheets on hand as well. Sometimes you just need larger sheets.

I think Rooted in Nature is one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2018-2019 catalog. It has all the qualities of the beloved Lovely as a Tree with the added benefits of coordinating Framelits. It’s great for masculine cards. It can be used for Christmas and really any season. I shared a similar card a while ago, but hadn’t made a video. I made it at my in-house SIP Together, so it was time to make the video.
