Earlier this week I shared a card I mass produced using the Today’s Tile stamp set. Well I went all out and did a stepped up version in a Facebook live, and then went down a rabbit hole from there to make some other versions as well! Take a look at the post here for the video and more photos: https://www.thecraftymedic.com/2020/10/todays-tiles.html #todaystile #steppedupcards #stamparatus #facebooklive #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies

Today's Tiles

So earlier this week I showed you this card I created en masse some customer thank you cards.


Then yesterday I did a Facebook live video showing a stepped up version of this card and how I used the Stamparatus to line everything up!



Well that led me down the rabbit hole because I got some great suggestions for jumping off points! I created these two more holiday style versions based on reds...


So which do you like best of my variations? Or maybe the original is your favourite?

Trimming The Town Blog Hop


This blog hop is all about the Trimming The Town suite! I actually only used the dies for this card, which has a special secret...


When you push on the bow, the house lights up! I love this extra little 'spark' on a card, and it's actually easier than you'd think. Check out my Instagram to see it light up, I couldn't figure out how to do it here. Stay tuned for a class coming up which will feature some of these bright creations (puns totally intended).

I did make a second card as well, this one features a bit more of the designer series paper, and yes, this one lights up too! This one I wanted to showcase some of the multilingual sentiments included in the paper, and the houses reminded me of the glow of the first snow in my neighbourhood...



Take a look at the other projects by clicking through the list below! Don't forget to subscribe to my email newsletter so that you don't miss out on the light up card class when it's announced.

Another quick tip is to make sure your ink pads are juicy and refill them when they start to get dry! You'll notice that your images start to fade and then it's past time to reink. As a bonus tip, whenever you buy an ink pad, buy a refill too, then you'll never get stuck in a lurch! #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies #tipsandtricks #quicktip #stampsinkandpaper #inkrefill

A quick tip for stamping as many cards as I often make... The stamparatus is great, but for simpler things you can just line everything up and stamp in a row! Minimizing movements is how you save time, and you do this by clustering your tasks together. #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies #quicktip #tipsandtricks #stampinghack

It's that time of month again! Earlier this week I made a pile of these thank you cards to send out to customers, team members, and friends. The stamparatus is an invaluable tool for lining up images like the ones from "Today's Tile" and mass production, I couldn't have made this card without it! Stay tuned for more tips from this creation... #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies #todaystiles #stamparatus

For the card I posted earlier I had to do some sentiment surgery to get what I wanted. Don't be afraid to cut your sentiments apart to get what you need! You can always put them back together on a block when you want to use the original. #stampingdiversity #tipsandtricks #stamphack #crafthack #stampinup #stampinupdemonstrator #cardmaking #stamping

Today is National Coming Out Day (well in the US anyway, but I'll dig it!) so I thought I would revisit the sentiment I used for Pride and change up the look a little! I love how it turned out, the photos just don't do it justice! #nationalcomingoutday #pride #lgbtq2+ #stampingdiversity #stampinup #stampinupdemonstrator #cardmaking #queercard

I hope you've enjoyed my vintage cards these past few days, leave me a comment telling me which is your favourite! #vintagecard #distresstechnique #whichcard #craftymediccreativechallenge #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies

One of my favorite craft hacks is to use adhesive sheets on the back of cardstock for die cuts. It turns your cardstock into a sticker you can die cut, stamp, punch, and generally do whatever you want with! You can watch the video of the whole thing over on my YouTube channel too! #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies #worldcardmakingday2020 #vintagecard #stitchedlace #crafthack #paperhack

Another favourite detail to add to vintage and distressed cards is a scrunched up corner! This one actually happened naturally when I was a bit too forceful with my sponging! Don't forget to check out the video on my YouTube or Facebook to see how the rest of this card comes together. #vintagecard #distresstechniques #craftymediccreativechallenge #CraftyMedic #StampinUp #StampinUpCanada #StampinUpDemo #StampinUpDemonstrator #cardmaking #handmadecards #scrapbooking #papercrafts #craftsupplies
