Canvas Corp Brands - 7Gypsies Epicurean Collection

Hello, Vintage Crafters! Welcome to another Canvas Corp Brands blog post! I am one of the Vintage Market Contributors for the Canvas Corp Crew and they asked me to create a project with the 7Gypsies Epicurean Collection!


No matter your background, heritage or country of origin, the Epicurean Collection has the images you need to create a foodie inspired project.

Food often means comfort to us as we dream of our favorite meals prepared by our mom, grandmother, sister, or father. Our food memories are often some of our strongest and sweetest memories. In this electronic age, with millions of recipes and hundreds of food blogs at the click of a button, we still love hand printed recipe cards, recipe books, and food journals.

  
I have created the perfect gift to give to a new bride, to hand out at recipe swaps, or to share with a child moving away from home. This recipe envelope is decorated in vintage images and stuffed full of recipe cards!


I used a 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" kraft envelope for my project base. I lined the envelope with Epicurean Hoagie paper. (I secretly love the name of this paper because I grew up calling foot-long sandwiches "hoagies." I started to call them "subs" when I was in college because no one knew what I was talking about when I called them hoagies!) I trimmed a strip of Epicurean Pomodoro checked paper and added it to the lower portion of the envelope. I topped the paper with a strip of canvas trimmed from one of the 12" x 12" canvas sheets. 



I layered images trimmed from the various Epicurean papers with the images from the Epicurean Mini Ephemera pack. I trimmed out "favorite recipes" and "yum" from the Farmhouse Kitchen Stripe paper. The focal point of the envelope is the large Route 66 sign topped by the Antique Silver Cutlery. In the "old days," the cafes and diners along Route 66 were a huge part of American food culture. I wanted to celebrate that on this project! 



I stuffed the envelope with recipe cards. To give this as a gift, you could write out your favorite recipes for the gift recipient. For a shower gift, you could take blank cards to the party and allow all the guests to fill out a recipe card.


I added one of the min ephemera, which looks like one of grandma's handwritten recipes, by clipping it to the project with a mini clothespin. 



I used one of the Recipe Tags (Gypsy Moments Collection) as the gift card for the project. One of the small clothespins is perfect for clipping the tag to the project. Plus, it allows for the addition of one of the Kitchen Charms. It would be fun to ask other folks to also give the gift recipient a charm, and then she would have the start of a sweet charm bracelet as a memento of the party!

Social Media Makes My Head Hurt

Good day, Blogger Peeps! I have to admit, I am FAR behind the times when it comes to current technology, especially social media. I am trying to play a bit of catch-up, mostly to make things easier for YOU. 

If you wish to FOLLOW ME, there are several ways to do so in the left sidebar:

Join this Site: this option allows you to see my posts from your Blogger Dashboard. I am not signed up with Google+ yet, long story. Actually, I am signed up, but I ignore it. Longer story. {grin} Baby steps, people.

Follow Me on Bloglovin': this option allows you to follow the blog via Bloglovin'. 

Follow Me on Pinterest: this button takes you to my Pinterest Board, where you can FOLLOW any or all of my boards.

Follow by Email: this option allows Blogger to email you whenever I post to the blog.

Networked Blogs: this option allows you to receive a notice from Networked Blogs whenever I post. This option used to automatically publish the blog to my Facebook Page, but it no longer does that. I think you can still use this option to get post notifications.

Visit my Facebook Fan Page: this button takes you to my Facebook Fan Page, where you can LIKE the page in order to see what I post there. I try to keep my regular Facebook Page for people I know or people I work with, which means if you are a Reader or Fan of this blog, please LIKE the Fan Page instead of sending me a Facebook Friend Request. I use the Fan Page to post a photo and link of EVERY project I share here on the blog.

Subscribe To: This is another option for following the blog. You can subscribe to Posts or Comments via the Blogger features shown.

YouTube: I also have a YouTube Channel where I post video tutorials. I don't have many, but there are a few there for you to see. There is a link to my channel in the Tab section at the top of the blog. Once on YouTube, there are options for following my channel. I have a second channel under my name, but that is NOT the one you want. You want the Gloria Stengel Creations channel

At this time, I do NOT have Twitter or Instagram accounts. Since I do not have a Smartphone, there is no reason for me to have either of these options. {In my not so humble opinion.} My cell phone is so dumb, it wears a dunce cap! 

You can also see that I have added a Contact Form to the sidebar. I used to have my email on here, but lately I have been getting some rather annoying emails, so I thought this would be a better option. Feel free to contact me with all legitimate questions or concerns. I try to answer promptly. 

I have also added a HOVER button to my photos. Look at the photo below:


If you hover your cursor over the photo, a set of SHARE options will appear in the upper right corner of the photo. This allows you to share via: Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, and Crosspost by Symphony. If you choose the Pinterest option, you will be prompted to select a pin board. Use this option to pin any projects you see. I have decided against the other type of Pin Button because I find it super annoying! And it requires me to edit my HTML blog code, and I don't wanna. 

Last, but not least. You can see some GALLERY options on the bottom of the left sidebar. These have not been updated in ages. I just have not found the time, and with Pinterest being so popular, I have not felt the urgent need. But, you can see some of my old stuff in there. I also have a TUTORIAL button in the Tabs at the top of the blog. This is sadly out of date as well. Since most of my blog posts are tutorials, I just cannot keep posting them twice. I will clean this up at some point (probably), but for now, use the SEARCH THIS BLOG feature if you are looking for something specific. 

If you scroll down the left sidebar, I also have a TRANSLATE THIS BLOG pull-down. If you need a language other than English in order to read my ramblings, this is for you. It is sort of fun to read my blog in French. {grin}

And that, my dears, concludes today's Public Service Announcement. Back to your regularly scheduled Internet Surfing! Have a happy day!

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Thinking of You

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! I am sharing more of the NEW Cascading Fuchsia collection today. I was experimenting with various Copic coloring techniques, and decided to try a soft color palette, with a lighter color of stamping ink. It worked out beautifully!


I am not sure fuchsias actually come in this pale, lavender-gray shade, but it sure looks fantastic on the card, right?! Monochromatic colors can lend elegance to a project. I used gray and white with pops of green and black. 

To make this card, create a 5 1/4" x 7 1/4", top-fold card by cutting two pieces of black cardstock to 5 1/4" x 7 1/4". Score one piece of the black cardstock at 1/2" from the top, on the long side. Place double-sided adhesive above the score line and attach the second piece of cardstock to the scored tab. (The front panel will be 5 1/4" x 7 1/4". The inside panel will be 5 1/4" x 6 3/4" to allow for the "hinge" at the top of the card.) 

Cut gray print paper from the Cascading Fuchsia Paper Collection to 5 1/8" x 7 1/8". Sponge the edges with peeled paint distress ink and attach the panel to the card front. Use the Spellbinders Fanciful Lattice die template to cut the lattice shape from black print Romantique Garden paper. Use foam adhesive to attach the lattice shape to the front of the card. 

Use the Decorative Oval Die to cut two of the oval shapes from white cardstock. Trim one of the oval shapes in half on the long side. Glue half of the decorative oval to the left side of the card and the other half to the right side, centering the shape onto the lattice die cut. Trim approximately 2" from the top and the bottom of the second decorative oval. Glue the trimmed sections to the top and bottom of the card front, creating the illusion of a larger decorative oval shape. 



Stamp the image from the Fuchsia Clusters Cling Stamp Set onto white cardstock with brown ink. (The brown ink will give a softer look to the flowers once they are colored.) Color the image with Copic markers. Trim the image to approximately 3" x 5" and sponge the edges with gray chalk ink. Mat the image with black cardstock cut to 3 1/8" x 5 1/8". 

Cut green paper from the Cascading Fuchsia Paper Collection to 3 1/4" x 5 1/4". Attach the matted image to the green paper with foam adhesive. Attach the matted panel to the center of the card front with foam adhesive, making sure to cover the open spaces where you spliced the decorative oval together. 



Create a bow from gray plaid ribbon and glue to the top of the image as shown. Stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments Cling Stamp Set onto white cardstock with black ink. Trim out the sentiment and sponge the edges with gray chalk ink. Mat the sentiment with black cardstock and attach it to the right edge of the card with foam adhesive 



Decorate the inside of the card by first trimming a gray panel from the Cascading Fuchsia Paper Collection to 5 1/8" x 6 1/2". Sponge the edges with peeled paint distress ink and attach the panel to the inside of the card. Trim white cardstock to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and attach the panel to the inside of the card.

Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop

If you are looking for my Heartfelt Creations Wednesday May Release post, 
please click HERE.


Good morning, Blogger Peeps! I am guest designing for Really Reasonable Ribbon again! It is time for the May Blog Hop, which starts at the RRR Blog! I know that it probably seems like I am the guest who won't go home! I am always quick to say YES! when Bonnie asks me to guest for the monthly hop! I love seeing the new ribbon clubs, and let's fact it, I love to share my projects using the fabulous ribbon! When Bonnie told me what colors were in the May Assortment, I naturally said, "Gimme gimme gimme!"

You should be coming to my blog from the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog. (For the complete blog list, scroll to the bottom of the post.) After visiting me, hop over to Ginny's Blog next! Ginny ALWAYS has something fantastic to share, so don't miss out!

Here is a peeky at the RRR May Ribbon Club Assortment


I LOVE patriotic-themed items! I especially love patriotic themed ribbon! And by patriotic, I mean in the colors of the good ol' US of A! You cannot go wrong with red, white, and blue! 


I created this card using an amazing image that I found online (somewhere). I found a whole bunch of these seed catalog images! This one is from 1898 or 1899. It's marvelous! I love the colors and the gent with the flag. I printed it out at approximately 3 7/8" x 5 1/8". It is a bit large, but I did not want to waste the cardstock or the ink, so I decided to use the image in the large size. Since the image is so large, I needed a large card! This bad boy is 5 1/4" x 7 1/4". Y'all know my preference for top-fold cards, and you also know that paper does not come in 14" lengths, so let's get creative! To make a top-fold card in this size, I cut two panels at 5 1/4" x 7 1/4" and scored one at 1/2" from the top to make a tab. I glued the front panel to the tab on the back panel and ta-da, now I have a 7 1/4" tall card!

Please do not send me hate mail about this odd-sized card! {grin} It may fit into an envelope made for 5" x 7" cards, or you my need to look for another size. Since I tend to make lumpy cards, I try to find padded or cardboard mailers in a variety of sizes for mailing. If I cannot find an envelope in the correct size, I cut down a larger envelope, use a box, or make my own envelope. My opinion is, if a person is special enough to warrant a handmade card, they are also special enough that I can do some extra work to provide an envelope! 



I used the fabulous RRR Patriotic Plaid Ribbon from the May Ribbon Club for my bow. This ribbon is so pretty! I tied a triple bow and then added a star pin to the top.


I placed the Poppy Red Diamond Satin, topped with the Tiny Poppy Red Stars on White Grosgrain ribbon (that is a mouthful) along the left side of the card . I used the Tiny Electric Blue Stars on White Grosgrain on the center panel. I rubbed the star ribbons with Ranger Distress Antique Linen ink to "tone down" the white just a bit. 



I used a bit more of the plaid on the inside of the card.



I added some dimensional flowers and a vintage postage image to the card front. Some of the flowers on the image were pink, so I covered them up! I hope you enjoyed this patriotic card!

Now, hop over to Ginny's Blog next!

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - May Release - Cascading Fuchsia!

If you are looking for the Really Reasonable Ribbon May Blog Hop, 
please click HERE.

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! It is once again RELEASE DAY! We are introducing the Cascading Fuchsia Collection! This collection comes with one 12" x 12" paper pad, six stamp sets, two dies, and a card kit. Get it all in the "I Want it All" option, until June 5th (or supplies last).


I have to tell you folks, the stamps in this collection are GORGEOUS! All I wanted to do was sit and color them! (So, I did!!!) My mom always had baskets of fuchsias hanging from our front porch at our home in Pennsylvania. Hanging baskets of fuchsias were a staple of every country home in the summer. I tried to grow them when I lived in North Carolina, but the heat and my lack of attention...well, let's just say, I am not much of a gardener! I have not seen fuchsias since moving to California, so I Googled them before I started to color the images. I was only familiar with the traditional colors of fuchsia and dark purple. There are TONS of color options available! Who knew?! I decided to color this image with a deep maroon red and pink.

Here is how I made the card:

Create a 5 1/2" x 6", top-fold card by cutting black cardstock to 5 1/2" x 12" and scoring at 6" on the long side. Cut maroon print paper from the Cascading Fuchsia Paper Collection to 5 3/8" x 5 7/8". Set aside. Cut gray print paper to 2" x 5 3/4" and attach to the left side of the maroon paper, leaving a 1/16" border on the edges. Cut green print paper to 3 1/2" x 5 3/4" and attach to the right side of the maroon paper, leaving a 1/16" border on the edges. 

Wrap a 7" length of maroon velvet ribbon around the panel to cover the seam where the gray and green paper is overlapping. Secure the ribbon at the back of the maroon panel. Attach the panel to the card front with dimensional tape.



Stamp the image from the Fuchsia Clusters Cling Stamp Set onto white cardstock with black ink. Color the image with Copic markers. Use the Spellbinders Grand Oval die template to cut out the image. Sponge the edges of the oval with gray chalk ink. Trim the Spellbinders Labels Ten die cut from black paper. Attach the image to the label die cut with foam adhesive. Attach the matted image to the right side of the card front with foam adhesive. 

Glue three green pearls to the bottom of the Labels Ten die cut as shown. Create a bow from green satin ribbon and glue to the top of the image as shown. Stamp the sentiment from the Heartfelt Sentiments Cling Stamp Set onto white cardstock with black ink. Trim out the sentiment using the label strip die template from the Cut Mat Create 1B Die. Sponge the edges of the sentiment strip with gray chalk ink and attach it to the left edge of the card with foam adhesive, tucking one edge under the oval. 



Decorate the inside of the card by first trimming a maroon panel from the Cascading Fuchsia Paper Collection to 5 3/8" x 5 7/8". Attach the panel to the inside of the card. Trim white cardstock to 5 1/2" x 5 3/4". Stamp the small image from the Fuchsia Bouquet Cling Stamp Set onto the upper right and lower left corners of the white cardstock using Merlot pigment ink. Attach the panel to the inside of the card.

Heartfelt Creations Wednesday - Notepad Holder

Welcome to another Heartfelt Creations Wednesday! I am sharing an altered notepad holder with you today. I have seen many versions of these over the years, and I have made my fair share. When I started to work on this project, I noticed that I had a large tag on my table and decided it would make a GREAT notepad holder!


I love to make notepad holders and fancy gift card holders. It makes giving small gifts such a joy, both for me and for the recipient. These notepad holders are also great gifts for teachers and coaches, or easy "bulk gifts" to make for a group of scrapbook or stamping pals. 



The inside cover has a pocket for a gift card, or you could slip in a movie ticket or some good old American cash! And then there is space for a sticky notepad. (I wish I had some sticky notes in a color other than that horrid yellow! Why do they not come in cream or ivory?)

Come along, let's make the project!


We will create a 4 3/4" x 4 x 1/2" notepad holder which will fit a standard 3" x 3" sticky notepad. The tag is a Graphic45 Large Kraft Tag and measures approximately 3 7/8" x 8 3/4".  

Score the tag on the long side a 3 1/2" and 4".


Fold on the score lines and burnish with a bone folder. Sponge tag edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink.



Unfold the tag with the grommet end to the left (with the outside of the tag facing up) and attach Everyday Heroes paper to the outside of the tag notepad holder as follows. Trim black and ivory dot paper to 3 7/8" x 3 3/4" and round the left top and bottom corners. Sponge edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink and attach the paper to the left side of the tag. 

Trim a strip of black and ivory dot paper to 3/8" x 3 3/4" and sponge edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink. Attach the paper to the center section (the spine) of the notepad holder. 

Trim a third piece of black and ivory dot paper to 3 3/8" x 3 3/4" and round the right upper and lower corners. Sponge edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink and attach the paper to the right side of the tag.



Flip the tag over so that the grommet end is on the right. Decorate the inside of the notepad holder as follows. Trim notebook print Everyday Heroes paper to 3 3/8" x 3 3/4" and round the left top and bottom corners. Sponge edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink and attach the paper to the left side of the tag. 

Trim a strip of black and ivory dot paper to 3/8" x 3 3/4" and sponge edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink. Attach the paper to the center section (the spine) of the notepad holder. 

Trim a piece of tan and black dot paper to 3 7/8" x 3 3/4" and round the right upper and lower corners. Sponge edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink and attach the paper to the right side of the tag.


Using strong double-sided adhesive, attach a 3" x 3" sticky-note pad to the right side of the notepad holder. 


Create a pocket, suitable for holding a gift card, from black and ivory dot paper. Trim the paper to 1 1/2" x 3 3/4". Round both left corners and use a circle punch to create a notch in the center of the right edge. Sponge the edges with creamy brown Chalk Ink. Add 1/8" double-sided tape to the top, left, and bottom edges of the pocket and attach it to the left edge of the tag. 

Stamp the "better place" sentiment from the Everyday Hero Cling Stamp Set onto the center of the first sticky-note with black ink.



A standard gift card will fit into the pocket as shown.


Trim canvas ribbon to 5 1/2" x 1/2" and knot one end. Thread the canvas ribbon through the grommet so that the knot is on the back of the tag. (This cotton blend ribbon is 2 1/2" wide. I cut it down to the width I needed and frayed the edges for that rustic look.)

Trim a second piece of canvas ribbon to 7 1/2" x 1/2" and glue one end to the center of the notepad holder's front cover.


Tie a loose knot with the ribbon ends to close the notepad holder.

Stamp the Vintage Morning Background Cling Stamp Set onto ivory cardstock with dark brown ink. Color the image with creamy brown chalk ink. Cut out the flowers with the Majestic Blooms Die. Shape the flowers and create blooms by gluing two flowers together, one larger then the other. (I confess, I have not used much of the Majestic Morning Collection, which came out in January 2014, simply because the colors are not "up my alley." But once I created the flowers in this rustic scheme, I fell in love with the stamps and matching die!) 


Create three blooms of various sizes. Use Glossy Accents to add tiny beads to the flower centers. Glue the flowers to the front of the notepad holder as shown, making sure to overlap the canvas ribbon.

On a side note, I create "bead blobs" by mixing the micro beads with Glossy Accents. If I create too many, I place the blobs on a non-stick craft sheet until the glue is dry. Then, I place the bead blobs into a bag to use for a later project! No waste!  


Use the Luggage and Tags Die to trim the "just a note" sentiment from the Everyday Heroes paper. Attach the sentiment to the lower left of the notepad holder using foam adhesive.

Graphic 45 - Time to Flourish - April

I am sharing the Graphic 45 Time to Flourish April class project sheet with you today. (Graphic 45 shared on their blog HERE.)


Each class in this series contains two cards and two tags (three tags this month) using the matching monthly papers from Time to Flourish! Click HERE to print your step-by-step directions for these five projects! For the April class, we are using the April Flourish and Cut Apart sheets from Time to Flourish, as well as the Decorative Stickers sheet. Our Staples item this month is Antique Metal Door Pulls, which come two to a package. The techniques this month are "what's hidden?" as we make use of hidden panels, and fussy cutting!


For the first card, I flipped the door pull upside down and used it as a "vase" for the flowers and postage images. The fussy cut images are so pretty when layered.


I created a hidden panel on the front of the card, which is also a pocket! 


The front of card two not only contains a little hidden booklet, tied closed with twine, but this style of card is a fun way to use up scraps!


The tags this month are the Ivory Artist Trading Tags. Since these tags are small, we will make THREE! 


Tag one contains the second door pull and more fussy cut flowers.


For tag two, I used some of the fun sticker elements from the sticker sheet.

Tag three is another example of fussy cutting that pretty paper! 

To print the step-by-step project sheets for all the available months, click each link below.


Remember, these project sheets are released to the Retail Stores the second week of each month. The Consumer's get to see these on the blog on the first week of the following month - which gives the stores time to teach the classes locally. That means you get to see the May set in the beginning of June. For the seasonal projects that are coming to you "late" just think of it as making your cards and tags for next year! It never hurts to get ahead!
