Club Scrap HOMESTEAD Blog Hop!

HOMESTEAD BLOG HOP!!

Good morning bloggers!!  Have you seen Club Scraps' new Homestead kit?  It is flipping AWESOME!!  I totally LOVE this kit!

So this month I decided to combine a couple of techniques.  I love these stamps and creating sunsets, but then decided to use the same idea but within a stencil.  These are fast and easy.


Supplies needed:
Club Scrap "Homestead" GTG Kit
Stencils
Inks
Sponge applicator
Removable painter's tape
Adhesive

 Instructions:
1.  Start by punching a small circle out of a scrap piece of card stock.  This will be used for the sun.  You can use the entire circle for a full sun, or cut a section off of the sun, to create a setting sun.

2.  Next take the white cardstock and place a stencil on it, using the removable painter's tape, tape the cardstock and stencil down.
3.  If you want the sun yellow, sponge on yellow where you are going to place the sun, otherwise you can let the sun be white.  Place the circle cardstock, where you want the sun. You can temporarily adhere if you the right kind of adhesive, otherwise just use your finger and hold it in place.  Using a sponge, ink neon orange on the rest of the visible cardstock.  Using sponge, ink darker orange on the outer 3/4-1 in. edge of the stencil.  Now you can sponge some red on the very outer edges of the stencil.

4.  You can remove the stencil now - this is what it will look like:
I just love the graduated change in colors.

5.  Using black ink, stamp the Windmill image and sentiment.  Mat card front and adhere to card back.




Stencils used are from Club Scrap kits from July 09 Memoirs, May 2011 Papillon, and October 2004

Well I hope this inspires you to get crafty and make something fun!  Thanks for visiting my blog during the Club Scrap Blog Hop!!

Sunset on the farm card


 I love these stamps from ClubScrap's Homestead kit with creating sunset backgrounds.

Use a circle punched out of cardstock to mask off the sun.  Sponge ink around it.  I did orange and yellow on this card and left the sun the color of the base cardstock.

Windmill Halloween Card.

Halloween Card

Anyone who has gotten to know my sis and I at retreat *knows* how much we love Halloween - many years at retreat, we manage to squeeze in a trip to the local haunted houses as part of the fun of the weekend...so when this months' kit arrived, I was anxious to make a Halloween card.


This is a pretty easy and fast card.

1.  Start by cutting a large circle out of a piece of scrap cardstock.  Temporarily tape down over white cardstock.
2.  Sponge yellow ink onto cardstock.  Remove mask.  Sponge on orange ink as shown:
3. Using black ink, stamp Windmill and weeds images as shown, then sponge on ink around the edge of the card front.
4.  Stamp "Happy Halloween" in black ink, mat and adhere onto card back.

Club Scrap "Blue Prints" Blog hop!



Good morning bloggers!!  Welcome to another month of the best scrapbook company kit ever!!!  Well I am happy to say the kids are back in school and we are back to a fairly decent routine!

So this month, using BluePrints as my inspiration, I created a fun house-shaped wall hanging.  I made it all from scratch with mat board and cardstock.

Supplies needed:
Mat board
Cardstock "Blue prints" Club Scrap kit
Adhesive
Modge Podge
Embellishments (buttons, charms, flowers, stickers, etc)

Instructions:
Start by cutting a bunch of strips of mat board 1.5inches wide
2.  Cut 4 strips 7.5 inches long - for the walls and floors of the house.
3.  Cut 2 strips 5.25 inches long - for the roof.
4.  Using modge podge, cover the strips of mat board with patterned cardstock.  I only covered 1 side of each of the mat board, the white side, the other side was a charcoal color and I left as is.  I cut the patterned paper larger than the matboard, so that I could use the extra flap and adhere that to the other pieces, making a more stable project.

This is the two roof pieces of mat board with yellow flaps that I will adhere to the house base.
 
 Here is the stages of covering the walls and floor pieces:
 
 
 
5.  Cut a house base that is 7.5x7.5 with roof as shown:
Cut a piece of cardstock the same shape and using modge podge cover the matboard with cardstock:

6..  Once you have the walls and floor covered with their little flappies, adhere to the house.  Adhere the roof to the house.
7.  Once you have the base of the house, create as many shelves, cubbies, frames, etc as you like.  Here you can see I covered some matboard pieces and adhered to the walls:


8.  Once you have all the cubbies you desire, then embellish away!!  I covered some matboard flowers with patterned cardstock, added paper flowers and buttons.  I stamped butterflies using the Pappilion kit in green on green paper in kit and embellished butterflies with stickles and gems.  I used various stickers from my stash and some awesome metal charms that I picked up at retreat last year.  Here are some close ups of the house.



Well I hope this inspires you to get crafty and make something fun!  Thanks for visiting my blog during the Club Scrap Blog Hop!!

3.Mat stamped cardstock onto maroon cardstock.  Cut a piece of patterned cardstock and mat on cardback.  Adhere all as shown:
