Wheelbarrow Full of Boo with Stampin’ Up! Tags Tags Tags for the Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inkin’ Krew Monthly Blog Hop! This month the Inkin’ Krew team theme is “Halloween Fun.” I hope the tiny pumpkins on this card make you smile, too!

My card features the Tags, Tags, Tags Photopolymer Stamp Set and the coordinating Trio of Tags Dies from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog. The wheelbarrow is from the Autumn Goodness Bundle from the Stampin’ Up! August-December 2020 Mini Catalog. There are also 3 Rectangle Stitched Dies. This is the most used die set in my collection….a must have.

The Paper Cuts

  • Basic Black Cardstock: 5 1/2″ x 8″ (scored at 4 1/4″), 3rd largest die from Rectangle Stitched Dies, and 2″ x 1 1/2″ for the inside sentiment.
  • Pumpkin Pie Designer Series Paper: 6″ x 6″ for the largest die from Rectangle Stitched Dies and the envelope flap.
  • Pumpkin Pie Cardstock: 3″ x 5″ for dies.
  • Whisper White Cardstock: 6″ x 2″ for dies and a 5″ x 3 3/4″ panel.
  • Whisper White Medium Envelope

The Creating

  • On the Whisper White Cardstock, stamp the wheelbarrow, the wheel and the two bottom images of the Tags, Tags, Tags stamp with Tuxedo Black Ink. Tip: use a D Block to center the 2 tags and wrap the extra one around the side. It will stick and make it easy to ink and stamp just the ones you want.
  • Color the wheelbarrow and wheel with the Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends. Color a 16″ Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon with the Dark Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends.
  • Cut out the inside sentiment (Happy Boo) with the Paper Trimmer or Paper Snips. You want to trim on the inside of the tag outline so you just get the sentiment.
  • Die cut the wheelbarrow, wheel and remaining sentiment. Tip:
    To avoid getting the tag hole, run the die half way through (you’ll feel the edge clear), turn the die around and run the other half through.
  • From the Paper Pumpkin Cardstock, die cut the smallest Rectangle Stitched Die and 14 pumpkins (7 runs, the die cuts 2 each time).

The Assembly

  • Use Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the wheel to the wheelbarrow. Add Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back. Also add them to the front sentiment tag (Sending a Halloween Hello).
  • Tie the ribbon in a bow around the bottom of the black rectangle stitched die.
  • Adhere the DSP to the card base. Top with the black rectangle stitched die. Add the wheelbarrow in the lower left corner. Use the Fine Tip Glue Pen to adhere 12 pumpkins, tucking the lowest level slightly under the wheelbarrow edge. Add the sentiment label.
  • Adhere the two remaining pumpkins to the inside sentiment. Adhere the remaining layers to the inside of the card base.
  • Apply glue to the envelope flap and apply the remaining DSP with the stitched edge on the bottom. Use scissors to fussy cut the excess DSP and envelope that shows.

Stampin’ Up! Honey Bee Workshop Takes

Next week I am hosting a Stampin’ Workshop for a group of stamping friends and customers. I am featuring cards from the Peaceful Poppies Suite and the Honey Bee Bundle. Here are a few takeaways I’ve been preparing for the participants.

  • The Name Tag is layered using a Stitched So Sweetly Die topped with an oval from Stitched Shapes Dies (that’s a piece cardstock covering the last name for confidentiality). The Honey Bee is mounted on a dimensional after using a bone folder to curl his wings. The base of the tag is laminated to allow me to reuse them and to change the accent to match the theme of the workshop.
  • I used the Stamparatus to expedite stamping in two steps (Crushed Curry and Black). I inserted a half piece of the heavy weight cardboard into the bag to ensure even stamping and prevent bleed through. The identification tag is cut using the Trio of Tags Dies. Participants can keep track of their projects without getting them confused and can up-cycle the bag for gift giving later.
  • The water bottle tag flowers and hello were stamped on a single block to make that go quickly. The dimensions are 2″ x 8″ scored along the 8″ side at 2 1/4″ and 6 1/4″. The hole is made with a 1 1/4″ punch. I laid the pocket front against the palm of my hand (before gluing the sides) and ran my bone folder across to bend the fibers a little to prepare room for the drink mix to easily insert. I think I will purchase some lemonade flavor drink mix to coordinate with the paper better.
  • The packet on the easel holds three (3) Merci chocolates. The bee is die cut from the DSP and mounted with a dimensional. The sentiment is stamped on another Stitched So Sweetly Die. The Gold Shimmer ribbon is tied to the front flap only and the box secured with velcro dots. It is CASEd from The Paper Pixie. You can find the dimensions here.
  • At the time I schedule the workshop and issued the projects, the Golden Honey Specialty DSP from Sale-A-Bration was not sold out. Fortunately, I had chosen a 2nd package earlier. I am happily sharing it in 6×6 cuts with my guest for their future use. And luckily, the majority of our projects use the Peaceful Poppies Suite.

It is so nice to be able to coordinate a theme. It’s one of the perks of stamping and Stampin’ Up!’s coordinating products.

If you happen to be in the Huntsville, Alabama area and would like to attend workshops, just drop me an email (stampdabbles@gmail.com) and I’ll add you to the distribution (bcc for confidentiality). I’d love to meet you and have more stampin’ friends.

Please let me know if you have any questions. If you do not have a demonstrator I would love to send you the new catalog and Sale-a-bration Two Brochure as well as the other catalogs. Just email me at stampdabbles@gmail.com.
