Timeless Tulips Fun Fold Card

Are you counting the days 'til spring? I am. Everyday on my walk, I find little signs of spring - birds singing, buds on trees, geese flying back to the neighborhood ponds, green leaves and stems poking through the cold dirt. The days continue to get a little warmer and a little longer. All beautiful signs of spring and new life. Today's blog post features some of my favorite springtime products, the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set and coordinating Tulip Builder Punch along with the Brights Designer Series Paper Pack. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I demonstrate for a you a Fun Fold Card that is very easy to make and can be used for so many occasions. With the sentiments from the Timeless Tulips Stamp Set, I made one sympathy card and one birthday card, both featuring the same products and same fun fold card layout. Take a look, then give this fun fold card layout a try. I think you're going to love it. 

Card Dimensions:

  • Card Base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2" on long side, then cut off 2 3/4" on one end only.
  • Designer Series Paper = 2 1/2" x 4" for front flap and 2 3/4" x 4" for inside.
  • Basic White = Cut 2 pieces 2 1/2" x 4".

Teacher Appreciation Day is May 4th

As a former teacher and mom who made sure our family showed our appreciation for our children's teachers, school employees, and bus drivers,  I can say a little token of appreciation goes a long way in helping people enjoy their jobs and stay motivated to do and be the best they can be. Tuesday, May 4th is Teacher Appreciation Day. I kept that day in mind when planning my April 28th Facebook Live projects. I created 2 sets of cards and a fun 3D gift tag that you can make quickly and easily and with limited supplies. All projects feature one of my favorite punches, the Apple Builder Punch. If you don't have it yet, I think you're going to want it after seeing this video demonstration. AND you'll want to order it quickly as this item is retiring on May 3rd and is only available while supplies last. AND if you can believe it, it is on sale for just $7.20 (originally $18.00). It doesn't get better than that. 

The projects you're about to see in this video are not only great for Teacher Appreciation Day, but for other reasons as well. How about as a Back to School gift, a hostess gift, fall harvest notes, a co-worker gift, or simply to surprise someone with a little pick me up or gift of cheer? How about using these apple cards to send notes and gifts to the "apples of your eyes" - grandchildren or students on summer break?

I used Real Red DSP from the 2020-2021 Regals Paper Pack for these card sets.

In the following sets of cards, I used the NEW 2021-2022 Regals Paper Pack Collection. I LOVE the tone-on-tone patterns of the new 6" x 6" DSP's in Brights, Neutrals, Regals, Subtles, and 2021-2023 In Colors. These will be available for all to order on Tuesday, May 4th with the launch of our brand new Annual Catalog.Apple Builder Punch by Stampin' Up!

Who knew that a simple $3.50 product could give so much dimension to an otherwise flat shape? That's exactly what our White Stampin' Chalk Marker does for these apples. It's my best $3.50 investment ever! It also works great for coloring the center of small flowers and so much more. Trust me when I say, "Everyone needs one".

Pretty Peony Parasols

Take a look at my Pretty Peony Parasol cards featuring the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set and Umbrella Builder Punch. I used the beautiful Peony Garden Designer Series Paper to give my cards an elegant, sophisticated look. I love the subtle tones of color and elegant images and patterns of the Peony Garden Designer Series Paper. And it won't be long now before we'll start to see peonies blooming in flower gardens across the midwest.

Easy Punch Art

I love punches. How about you? And I'm always intrigued when I see punches used in unique ways, in ways other than they are intended for. In the following Facebook Live video replay, I demonstrate making 2 different cards featuring some of my favorite retiring punches - Balloon Bouquet, Story Label, and Small Bloom. I also show you how to use a couple of these to make "vases" for our small blooms punched from Designer Series Paper. You are going to love these springtime cards!

Flowers for Every Season Diagonal Cuts

I'm excited to show you to make 3 cards with 3 pieces of Designer Series Paper with 2 Diagonal Cuts. It's really easy and so fun to mix and match colors and patterns just as I did with Stampin' Up!'s Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper. Rich, vibrant colors and floral images make these cards perfect for springtime card giving and a variety of occasion and reasons. Enjoy this April 2nd Facebook Live video replay, then start mix and matching your Designer Series Papers for a fun time of card making.



Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set & Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

Start your cards by choosing 3 coordinating pieces of Designer Series Paper each measuring 5" x 3 3/4". Stack the 3 pieces of card stock. With DSP stack in vertical/portrait position, mark off 2" from top and bottom on right side and 1 1/4" from top and bottom of left side. Cut stack diagonally from top left pencil mark to top right pencil mark. Then cut stack diagonally from bottom left pencil mark to bottom right pencil mark. Sort stacks so that you have 1 of each DSP for 3 cards. DSP pieces will be adhered to Basic White card stock measuring 5 1/4" x 4", then adhered to card bases.

The Stampin' Up! products may be the same. The card layout may be the same. But embellishing the cards is where you can make each card unique as I did on these three cards.

Under My Umbrella

Spring weather is upon us here in central Ohio - warm and sunny with light breezes one day and cold, rainy, and blustery the next. But we take the bad with the good because we all know that March and April showers bring May flowers and make our summers beautiful. 

I can't help but think of spring when I look at the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set & Umbrella Builder Punch. (And those rain boots are too cute.) The Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper I used with these two products sure made for pretty spring cards. Take a look and be inspired. 

Please note that if you love these 3 products featured in this card making demonstration, you need to purchase them quickly as they are retiring soon. The stamp set is guaranteed through April 23rd, however, the punch and Designer Series Paper are only available while supplies last. The punch and DSP are being sold at discounted prices! Get them before they're gone to avoid disappointment.

I stamped rain boots on to Ornate Garden DSP, cut them out, and adhered them to the inside of each card for a bit of added interest.

Spring Treat Bag

In today's video demonstration, I show you how to make a cute party favor or treat bag perfect for your spring occasions - St. Patrick's Day, Easter, birthdays, bridal shower & weddings, and so much more. Or how about decorating one of these treat bags for a teacher or graduate and enclosing a gift card? No matter the occasion, people are going to love receiving one of these sweet treat bags. What occasion will you create these party favors for? What Stampin' Up! products will you use in making them? Let your creativity shine, then share what you create.

 

I've chosen 2 beautiful papers from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper for these two spring party favors. The stamped image is part of the Oval Occasions Bundle and is absolutely perfect for celebrating Easter and Spring.
Oval Occasions Stamp Set & Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper

This favor is actually a bag with a tent-like band that slides over the closed bag. The bag can hold chocolates and other sweets, a gift card, and even a piece of jewelry. I'm sure you can think of many other items to put inside these favors.

Here is a St. Patrick's Day party favor also made with Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper. The gold metallic accents make this paper truly elegant and rich. The Gold Foil Shamrock was created using the Heart Punch Pack.
