Monster Father’s Day Card: Stampin’ Up!

Monsters Inc Father's Day Card tutorial and instructions at StampinFool.com
It’s almost Father’s Day and since I always find myself in a crunch, I am sharing a few extra projects this week that you can throw together on short notice.

Yesterday, I posted a Father’s Day Questionnaire that you can print and fill out with your children and then frame it and give it to dad.

Today, Monsters Inc is the theme.  These quick and easy handprint/footprints are a great way to show dad some love and save the kids’ prints. I have listed the supplies below needed to stamp these prints.

Directions:

  1. Ink foot in Bermuda Bay and pick up your kiddo, slowly lower them onto the paper or have them stomp once.  Stamp hand (but not middle finger) in Cucumber Crush ink.  I pressed the ink pad directly to the foot and hand making sure to cover it well.  I used tape to cover the middle finger, then removed it before pressing it onto the White paper cardstock.
  2.  Punch 1″ white circle, 1/2″ soft sky circle and make Mike’s eye.  Color with Black marker and draw smile.  Draw face on Sully.
  3. Using Rich Razzleberry ink, use index finger to add purple spots to Sully.
  4. Cut out and adhere monsters to white card stock.
  5. Write Happy Father’s Day on the card stock.

3 Easy Steps to a Beautiful Hummingbird Themed Gift

 3 Easy step tutorial to make a Hummingbird Gift Bag using the Stampin Up  Picture Perfect Stamp Set from the Occasions 2016 Catalog at StampinFool.com
When I first saw the Picture Perfect stamp set at Stampin Up’s On Stage Local demonstrator event, I squealed. It is beautiful. I fell in love with the hummingbird stamp instantly. He colors were so vivid and bold.

Now around here things have been crazy busy and I haven’t had a chance to play with it until now.

Instead of stamping on paper, I knew I wanted to do something a little different. I had a small pack of mini Muslim bags left and they will do the trick.

I’ll show you the finished hand stamped hummingbird gift bag, then I’ll provide the specific directions, step by step photos and a supply list so that you can easily make this gorgeous gift bag.

How beautiful is that? Do you love it?!? I do. I just can’t stop staring at it.

Let me give you a few tips for prep work to make things go smoothly. In order to get very clear stamping on the muslin bag, you’ll need a hard surface to stamp on and a spongy surface as well. Contradictory, I know. You’ll want your foam Stampin’ mat on the bottom, then you’ll want to cut a piece of chipboard or cardboard backing to fit inside the bag (see it sticking out). I also used push pins to tack down the bag so it was taunt and did not move while I was stamping.

While you are setting up, grab a small baby washcloth or old tshirt scrap and dampen it. You will use it to carefully wipe any ink residue from the border of the stamps.

Directions

1. Set up and prep your space.

Stamps: Picture Perfect

Ink used: Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush, Garden Green

2. Stamp from lightest to darkest, following the numbers on the clear sheet that comes with the stamp set. Mint Macaron (body), Watermelon Wonder (chest), Cucumber Crush, and finally Garden Green.

Make sure to wipe any excess ink from the stamp border or inside parts. Stamp firmly on the bag, making sure the birds are lined up and facing the same direction.

3. Add the sentiment You are Made of Wonderful. (In Watermelon Wonder ink). You can now loosen the bag from the foam mat and remove the cardboard.

4. Die cut two heart with treat bag framelits, Watermelon and Gold.

5. Cut Mint Macaron twine to wrap around the bag 4 times and tie in a bow.

6. Attach the heard with Gold Cording. I poked the hole with the push pins used to hold down the bag.
