Let's Make Cute Fridge Magnet with What's Cooking and Measure of Love Stamp Sets

Do you have an assortment of magnets all over your refrigerator? I have a dozen or so, but what I'm sharing today takes the grand prize as it is approximately 7" square.

I was inspired by Melissa Davies creation in the Facebook Group I'm a part of called, Dollar Store Stampin' Up! Style. Her magnet was more cooking-themed and mine is more baking-themed.

 I hustled down to my local Dollar Tree #dollartreediy and found a couple "Kitchen Play Sets" in the children's toy section that I could use. Here's the closest image I could find off the Dollar Tree website. My skillet came with two slices of bread and a piece of swiss cheese, along with the tools shown.

One of my long-time friends and team members was visiting last week, so I shared this idea with her.  We both made a skillet magnet using the Measure of Love stamp set and the What's Cookin' stamp set that is part of Stampin' Up!s 2021 Annual catalog. Our skillets turned out a little differently, but both are very cute! #creative #craft

Here are the products I used in this project:

What's Cookin' Dies

Retired Circles Collection Framelits
Possibly available on Ebay or Etsy

Retired Timeless Label Punch
Possibly available on Ebay or Etsy

You could substitute the current Label Me Fancy Punch possibly

Real Red cardstock

Basic White cardstock

Silver Foil 12"x12" Specialty Pack (for whisk die cut)

The Black and White gingham Designer Series Paper was one I had in my leftovers stash, 
so don't remember where that came from. I rounded the edges to match the circle die cut. Use whatever Designer Series Paper you have that looks cute to you.

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink

Real Red Classic Ink

Pale Papaya Classic Ink
(Touch the tag edges to the ink pad for hint of color)

Pale Papaya Stampin' Blends
(Used Dark Blend to color the bowl)

Gray Granite Stampin' Blends
(Used the Light Blend to color the spatula handle, wooden spool and measuring cups)

Bronze and Ivory Stampin' Blends
(Used Bronze Blend for the Rolling Pin)

Black and White Gingham Ribbon

Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack

The rest of the ribbons used on the skillet handle was from my stash of retired ribbons. I tried to go small with 1/8" and 1/4" width ribbons. I even added mini silver and black sequins that came off a spool that I had.  I also had some Black Baker's Twine leftover from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit that I used to tie the slotted spatula to the back of the skillet handle. The toy knife was attached with the 1/2" glue dot to the front of the handle. I used a rolled-up mini glue dot to attach the blade to the skillet side.

Resin Hearts Embellishments - Retired
Possibly available on Ebay or Etsy

Mini Glue Dots

Mini Dimensionals

Other tools needed - Clear Stamp Block D will do for all, Simply Shammy (to clean your stamps), Paper Snips, Take Your Pick tool, and regular size Cut and Emboss Machine.

Suggested Magnets - Amazon 
I attached three to skillet base in a triangle pattern with the half-inch glue dots.

Half Inch Glue Dots - Amazon

Now that you have this long shopping list, I'm sure your own version of this cute fridge magnet will be just as darling or even better! Have fun creating yours!

Make Delightful Fun Flag Card with Textures and Frames set

Do you love FREE stuff? Here's a great choice that's available right now during Stampin' Up!s second Sale-a- Bration available until September 30. This stamp set is called Textures and Frames. 

You can receive it for free by placing a $50 order before tax and shipping.  But wait, you say, I have to spend money to get this? Yes, but if you love stamping as I do, I'm sure you have a wish list or resupply list always hanging around for the right time to order. Now's a good time!

Here's a very easy card design you can make with this set. It seems very timely right now, but for all time. It is a great patriotic card for a variety of national holidays throughout the year, like Memorial Day, Patriot's Day, or Veterans Day. It could also be changed to be a Birthday card, Sympathy card, Welcome Home card, Encouragement card, and more I haven't even thought of yet.

This card design would also lend itself to being one of those cards where you have a bunch on hand, then just add a pre-stamped label from your label collection for whatever occasion you need it for.

Here's the products I used to make this card:

Night of Navy card base - 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4", tent style with fold on top

Basic White card stock inner layer - 4" x 5-1/4"

Real Red card stock layer - 3-3/4 x 5"

Basic White card stock layer 3-1/4" x 4-1/2"

Scrap of Basic White for Tag

Textures and Frames stamp set

Peaceful Moments stamp set

Night of Navy Ink and Real Red Ink

Retired Word Window Punch (HINT: to get the inked edge on the tag, I gently touch the sides and ends to the ink pad to get this effect.)

Very Retired Heart and Star Night of Navy Enamel Shapes

I hope you can see many uses for this Sale-a-Bration stamp set.

Silver Blog Hop with Fall Mini Catalog

Welcome to the Silver to Silver Elite August Blog Hop

Sharing a Holiday Card from products in the August to December 2021 Mini Catalog

Since I love Christmas, it was easy to design a Christmas card for this Blog Hop. I used products from the Painted Christmas Suite on pages 16-19.

I'm calling this design a Fixed Double Point Layout.

Tent style vertical card design

To create this card you'll need the following products and use as directed:

Real Red Cardstock for card base, cut 4-1/4" x 11", scored at 5-1/2"

Soft Succulent Cardstock layer, cut 4" x 5-1/4" and embossed with the 
Tasteful Textures Embossing Folder (Do not adhere to card front yet!)

Evening Evergreen Cardstock - 3-1/2" x 4" piece for die cut from the Seasonal Labels Die set

Basic White Cardstock, two pieces:
Inner layer, cut 4" x 5-1/4"
Seasonal Label Die Cut tag 3" square

Painted Christmas Designer Series Paper - two pieces cut 4" wide x 3" tall. Pay attention to directionality. Score at 1" on the 3" side

To make the pointed sections as shown on the card face, you will fold up the 1" scored section and crease with bone folder, then unfold. Then you will fold each upper corner inward to make the triangle section as shown.  Add a little adhesive to hold the folded triangles in place.

Run adhesive on the one inch section and place it on the backside of the embossed Soft Succulent layer. Those triangles are meant to be sandwiched between the Real Red card base and the embossed layer.

Christmas Season Stamp Set - I used the little tiny dots in the bottom center stamped in Real Red ink on the inner Basic White card layer.

Christmas to Remember Stamp Set for the greeting stamped in Real Red Ink.

3/8" Mini Real Red Ruffled Ribbon for Bow, attached with Glue Dots.

Lastly, embellish the Basic White tag with three Red Rhinestones. Adhere the inner Basic White layer. Cut a 2-3/8" x 6" piece of the matching Designer Series Paper to cover the Basic White envelope flap for an extra coordinated look.

Looks fabulous! This design will go together quickly and you'll be able to make several Christmas cards of this design for your holiday sending or giving.

August Stamp and Chat Class Cards #6

Did you know Stampin' Up! Demonstrators get to order new products one month ahead of the general public? That's a great perk of being a demonstrator! I love making my wish list early! As I was flipping through both the Fall Mini Catalog and the Second Sale-a-Bration brochure, I stopped at these darling sheep! They are just so cheerful. However, I noticed these sheep needed eyelashes! So I added them! Aren't they darling? 

Products used to create this card:

Counting Sheep Sale-a-Bration cling stamp set and Sale-a-Bration Sheep Dies are free with a $100 USD order before shipping and tax now through Sept. 30, 2021

Mint Macaron card base 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Crushed Curry cardstock 2-1/2" x 5-1/2"

Retired - It's My Party Designer Series Paper (DSP) from 2016 - one piece 2" x 5-1/2, then split at 1" so the paper's pattern will carry from one strip to the other. (I'm sure you'll be able to find a cute piece of  DSP that will work well.)

Basic White cardstock for the sheep and stamp the three sheep with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink then die cut them out with your die cutting machine
Color using Light and Dark Gray Granite Stampin' Blends pens (but be careful not to color the "whites" of two sheep's eyes) for the legs, hooves, and faces

Basic Black Stampin' Write marker to draw eyelashes with the fine tip end
Mount the sheep on the card front as shown in the photo. One sheep is "balancing" on the back of the other!

Crushed Curry and Melon Mambo cardstock scraps for balloon die cuts, add rhinestone jewels after mounting on card front with mini dimensionals and glue dots

Small strip of Basic White to stamp the greeting in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Run stamped white strip through die cut machine with Tasteful Label die, then adhere
Small strip of Melon Mambo to fussy cut around after mounting white tag
Adhere tag to card front
All done!

If you have children or grandchildren in your life, this birthday card would be perfect for them. Make several to give!

Have a wonderful day!

August Stamp and Chat Card #5

Wanna get a head start on your Christmas Card Making? Here's a great idea for you!

The Sale-a-Bration reward Peaceful Prints Designer Series Paper makes the easiest Christmas cards with just a few supplies. All you have to do is go to your Stampin' Up! wish list that you have made from either the Annual Catalog and/or the Fall Mini Catalog and order $50 USD before shipping and tax and you can select this darling paper for FREE! It's an $11.50 value!

 Cased from Wendie Waldman with a few minor additions.

Products needed to make these Cards:

Basic White Thick cardstock cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
Basic White cardstock strip cut 1/2" x 4"

From the Peaceful Print Designer Series Paper (DSP) - cut a row of deer at a height of 2-1/8", then square up the deer as shown in the photo. 

Using the Christmas to Remember stamp set and Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the greeting. (HINT- I cut the stamp in two so each word was separate.)

Mount the deer on a 2-3/8" square of Basic Black cardstock

From your choice of the DSP cut two 4" x 5-1/4" vertical pieces
Slice those pieces horizontally at 3-1/4"

Mix and match the pieces to look similar to the photo. Adhere to the card base. Add the Basic White 1/2" strip to hide the seam. Then raise the deer up on dimensionals. Add red rhinestones for embellishment and a small black and white gingham bow with glue dots. Wasn't that fast?

You'll be able to mass product at least a dozen of these cards from the DSP pretty quickly. Give it a try.

August Stamp and Chat Class Cards #4

Here's a quick and easy idea for you that is only stamps, ink and paper! Combine two stamp sets - Watercolor Shapes and Biggest Wish and you can create any combination of shapes and greetings you can imagine! I recommend you use Thick Basic White cardstock for a solid result.

Have fun experimenting with different ink color combinations with each card you make! This idea can work well for a masculine birthday depending on colors used.

To purchase both these stamp sets, just click the yellow link below.

Have a colorful day!
