Stitched Stockings, Punch Art & Peekaboo Frames

Stitched Stocking Punch Art

What do you get when you combine the Stitched Stocking Stamp Set, Stampin' Up! Punch Art and Stampin' Up! Peek-a-Boo Windows?  Answer: A Beautiful, Bouncing Baby Card.

This bouncing baby card was inspired by the news from Texas that our son, Jeremiah, and his wife, Bethany, are expecting a beautiful baby boy early next spring.  Congratulations Jeremiah & Bethany!

  •  Stitched Stockings
  • Hobby Horse Punch Art
  • Start with the Stampin' Up! Stitched Stocking stamp set.  Stamp the your stocking using Soft Suede Classic Ink, then Punch using the Stocking Builder Punch.
  • Stamp the Stitched toe, heel & cuff using Soft Suede Classic Ink, then punch using the Stocking Builder Punch.
  • Adhere "heel" to stocking to make an ear for your Hobby Horse.
  • Add a Brad eye to your hobby horse
  • Give him a harness using the 1/8" Marina Mist Ribbon and another brad.
  • To make the mane, clip a piece of Soft Suede Taffeta Ribbon.  With your paper & craft scissors make a fringe from the ribbon.
  • His riding sticking was punched with the Word Window Punch.


Scallop Square Card Base

The Card Base was cut with the Scallop Square Die.  Click Here for video tutorial using the the Scallop Square die to make a card base.

Peek-a-Boo window

Stampin' Up! Peekaboo Card

I love that the Peekaboo Frames die give me 5 different peek-a-boo frames from which to choose.

Today I chose to use one of the smaller peekaboo frames to make my window.

The sentiment inside is from the Occasions Alphabet Stamp set.

Stamp the image and frame it with your Peekaboo frame.

Tent Topper Card Part 2


Today we are going to do the design work on our Tent Topper Card that we started earlier in the week.  The I Dig You Stamp set is great for making Masculine cards and Scrapbook Pages. Click Here to view the Tent Topper Card Video Part 1.

Stampin' Up! Marker Tips

  • The Stampin' Write Markers are Dual Tip markers.  The brush tip end or wide end is great for coloring larger areas such as the stamps in this video tutorial.  The Fine Tip end is great for writing and for getting into tight places.
  • Get the most out of your Dual Tip Markers.  Store them horizontally or on their sides so that the ink can flow evenly from end to end.  Clear-Mount stamp Stamp cases (#119105) are perfect for marker storage and they are fun to decorate.  Each case will hold 10 Marvelous Markers, a complete Color Collection!
  • It's tempting to store your markers in cute little jars, but storing them vertically causes one end to dry out.

Did you know that the Stampin' Write markers come in every Stampin' Up! Color making it easy to have color coordinated projects?  40 Color Collection Markers (10 in each collection), 10 In Color Markers & the Blush Blossom Marker #100037 for flesh tones
