Pinterest Inspiration

Image
Do you ever have those days when you are stuck waiting for the timer to go off on the oven so you pass the time looking at random ideas on Pinterest? That happened to me today while baking a crustless pumpkin pie.

I came across a card on Pinterest and decided to use it for inspiration for my friend's upcoming birthday. I tried to follow the links back to the original card, and the best I can figure out is that my inspiration card is by www.stampstodiefor.com . I certainly want to be sure to give credit to the original designer, even though I modified my design from the one seen on Pinterest.

Normally I give you my "recipe" for my card, but in all honesty, I used assorted supplies I have in my stash, some of which I don't remember where I bought them, so instead let me simply show you what I gathered together to work with and I will provide links to those items I know the source of.


First I cut the light pink cardstock to use as my base card, 4.25" x 11". I…

CTMH Technique Blog Hop - In Love with Vellum

Image
Welcome to my blog, Paper Crafting With Rebecca! If you just popped in from Sarah Devendorf's blog then you are in the right place. A blog hop is a friendly circle of artists challenged to design a paper craft using a monthly designated theme or product. Once we create our paper craft using that particular theme/product we then blog post our resulting creations. The next step is to visit each other's blogs so we can see what other’s have designed and created using that same theme/product. Even if you aren't entering a creation in this month's blog hop you are very welcome to join into the "hopping" and be sure to leave comments!
This month we are featuring Vellum! I love using vellum in my paper crafting because it can be used to add elegance and/or texture to a project. As you are seeing in this blog hop, the uses of vellum are many!

Here is my entry for this month:



At this point, you can either continue the blog hop by going straight over to Catherine Nowak&#…

Easy Washi Tape Card

Image
I've heard people say they like the look and color variety of Washi tape, but they don't really know what they would use it for. I use Washi tape fairly often. Here is one idea you might like for using Washi tape... a card background!

First I used my Cuttlebug to die cut my sentiment for the front of the card.


Then I simply took a white piece of cardstock, cut to 4" x 5.25" and covered it with a couple of different designs of Washi tape. (By the way, here is a Limeade Washi Pack and a Sugar Rush Washi Pack that are a steal!)


Next I selected a complimentary color of cardstock (in this case green) and cut a piece 4.25" x 11" for my card base. I used my Scor-Pal Scor-Buddy Mini Scoring Board to score a fold line at 5.5".


Lastly, I glued it all together, added some sequins for bling, and my card was ready for my personal note and then off it goes in the mail. This one is a simple design, but it still shows you cared enough to make a unique handmade card f…

Technique: Envelopes, Bows, Boxes

Image
I had a friend over and she was looking around in my craft room a few weeks ago and she stumbled across my American Crafts We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board and asked me to show her what I could do with it. She had never seen one, or seen how it worked, and she thought it was a delightful invention. I use my punch board all the time and I hadn't realized it might be a novelty to some people. So, on the off chance you haven't seen one, I am dedicating this blog posting to some of the fun things this crafty tool can do.

The American Crafts We R Memory Keepers 123 Punch Board has three main crafting functions: it is used to make envelopes, bows, and boxes. I most often use it to make envelopes, but I also appreciate the bows and boxes functions, too! This punch board also comes with instructions to make envelope liners, string tie boxes, coin envelopes, and file folder cards.

Envelopes: I find it handy that I can easily make envelopes of various sizes/textures/weights/colors us…
