Easter Egg Tree Card with Sheltering Tree, Stampin’ Up!

Sheltering Tree & Basket Bunch Bundle, Stampin' Up Easter card

An Easter card for you!

During my mother/daughter Easter card classes, we made this adorable Easter egg tree card using Sheltering Tree stamp set and the Basket Bunch Bundle.  Everyone loved coloring in the little eggs and “hanging” them in the Easter tree!

A tree for any season…

Sheltering Tree is easily made into seasonal trees simply by changing the color of the leaves (which are pink on this card).  The set includes a rake for autumn cards, a swing and bike for summer cards, flowers for springtime cards and snowflakes for winter.

The tree trunk and branches are stamped in Tip Top Taupe, with Pink Pirouette for the leaves.  The ground is stamped with Pear Pizzazz in both first and second generation ink, resulting in two tones of green.

If only Easter eggs grew on trees…(especially the chocolate variety!!).  Hey, a girl can dream, can’t she?

Shadow Stenciling Technique & Tutorial with Timeless Tags and Everyday Hero

Everyday Hero and Timeless Tags Thinlits

If you thought I was done showing off cards that feature Timeless Tags, well you were wrong!  I actually thought I was ready to move on, but then realized that I hadn’t shared this card with you yet.  We made this during my Technique Classes in February and I have instructions for you below.  But first, some of the details…

I stamped the super hero using Everyday Hero stamp set and colored him with PrismaColor Pencils.  After a quick fussy cut with scissors, I then placed him on a tag made with Timeless Tags.  I rather thought that the sunburst-y tag looked good with the little guy!  I didn’t have any Pacific Point ribbon, so I cut a very thin strip of card stock and tied that through the tag hole.  That’s my go-to trick for when I don’t’ have ribbon in the right color!!  Works every time.


Shadow Stenciling Technique & Tutorial with Timeless Tags and Everyday Hero, www.regalstamping.com

Here’s the tutorial…

This is a simple shadowing technique that creates an interesting background!  Let me show you how I did it…

Shadow Stenciling Technique & Tutorial

Lay a stencil over your card stock panel. In this case we’re using the stars stencil, (which is from the Hearts & Stars Decorative Masks set, shown below in the product section) over a Tip Top Taupe panel measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.

If you feel the need, you can secure both the card stock and the stencil with tape to prevent it from moving while you work.

Use a sponge dauber with Whisper White Pigment Ink and sponge through each of the stencil openings, transferring the ink to the Tip Top Taupe panel.

Shadow Stenciling Technique & Tutorial

Allow to dry or use a heat gun to speed up the process.

Clean the white ink off of the stencil.

Once the white ink has dried and you have cleaned off the stencil, realign stencil over panel.

Slightly off-set the stencil to the right or left of the previously sponged stars. You’ll see most of each white star, but you’ll have a “slice” of Tip Top Taupe showing through as well.

Secure stencil in place if desired.

Shadow Stenciling Technique & Tutorial

Use a different sponge dauber with Pacific Point ink and sponge through all of the stencil openings. You will be sponging over the white and the “slice” of Tip Top Taupe that is showing in each star.

Timeless Tags for Graduation Card

Graduation Card using Timeless Tags and Suite Sentiments, by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies are turning out to be one of my 2017 Occasions Catalog favorites.  If you’ve been following along with my blog this past week, you’ve already seen several ideas for this fun little bundle!

Timeless Tags for Graduation Card

It’s soon going to be that time of year again, when our kids are graduating from schools all across the country, and I always like to have a few cards ready to go.  Today as I was playing in my craft room, I chose to make this star tag out of Night of Navy and Marina Mist using the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies.  “Congratulations Graduate” is from Suite Sentiments, which has some really nice sayings in it.

For the curly ribbon on the tag, I used very thin strips of Night of Navy card stock and curled them around a little paint brush handle before taping them to the back of the tag.  It gives the whole card a playful, celebratory feel, don’t you think?

That’s the Tag, Patriotic Card

That's the Tag & Timeless Tags Thinlits Patriotic Card by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

Today I made this patriotic card that would be perfect to send to someone serving in the military.  I know they love to get mail from home and we need to let them know how much we appreciate their sacrifices and service.

I glued 1/2″ strips of white card stock to a red panel and then attached the tag, made with That’s the Tag which is shown below in the product list.   The stars are cut out of the Night of Navy tag which is attached to a white tag.  The Godspeed stamp is from a retired set called “For Your Country”.

That’s the Tag Inset Flower Card

That’s the Tag, Round Two

Thank you for coming back today to see another of my cards made with  That’s the Tag Bundle!  This time I used the flower tag, cutting it out of black and then gluing it to a solid tag also cut from black.  That left “holes” into which I glued the flower pieces.

Timeless Tag Flower Inset by Krista Thomas, www.regalstamping.com

A puzzle made simple…

The colors are Watermelon Wonder, So Saffron and Old Olive.  I find that this technique can be quicker if the flower tags are cut out on top of 8 layers of new dryer sheets, like Bounce, which causes the “puzzle pieces” to stick and stay put.  I can then use tweezers to pick up the particular pieces and place them in the right spot on the tag. (And if you don’t want a headache, I recommend using unscented dryer sheets!)

The sentiment is from Badges & Banners stamp set and is punched out with the Duet Banner Punch.  I used the Fluttering Embossing Folder on the background panel.

I hope you’ll join me for Round 3 of “That’s the Tag”, coming soon!

That’s the Tag Workshop Project

A workshop Make & Take…

Yesterday I had a workshop where I featured Timeless Tags Thinlit Dies and the coordinating stamp set, That’s the Tag.  Available separately or as a bundle (order #144725), these tags offer so many variables and are fun to work with.

That's the Tag Bundle, Stampin' Up Occasions 2017,www. regalstamping.com by Krista Thomas

It is really a lovely set because the tag can be die cut and then stamped on, or you can lay one of the smaller dies on the tag and cut out butterflies, stars or leaves.  You get a 2-tone effect by placing another colored tag behind the top one.

In the case of the butterfly tag above, I made two vanilla tags and cut the butterflies out of one of them.  Then the two tags were layered together.  Finally, I cut butterflies out of Flirty Flamingo, Melon Mambo and Peekaboo Peach & then inset them.

Workshop attendees each got to make their own butterfly tag and they loved it!  Here is a card that I made with a similar tag made from Crumb Cake card stock.  The Melon Mambo background panel is embossed with Fluttering Embossing Folder.

I will be sharing some more cards made with this bundle over the next few days.  I hope that you’ll come back to see them!


Hello Dear Friend

Today I am sharing a card that I made with two different challenges in mind.  The first challenge is for Global Design Project, challenge #GDP075…which requires a winged creature(s) on the card.

The second challenge came from The Paper Players, Clean & Simple Challenge #332, having the sentiment as the focal point of the card.

To combine this card into two challenges, I started with some 1/2″ strips of Rich Razzleberry, Night of Navy and Delightful Dijon card stock, gluing them diagonally across a 2″x 4″ piece of Very Vanilla.

Next, I used a die from the Timeless Tags Thinlits and cut out the tiny little butterflies which are glued to the striped background.  “Hello” was cut using the Hello You Thinlits and Gold Glimmer Paper.  The stamped sentiment is from Birthday Blooms stamp set.

The butterflies are small enough so as not to steal the show, leaving the sentiment “hello, dear friend” as the focal point of my card.  I hope you like it!
