New Pocket Card for You

Check out this awesome Fun Fold Card I received from my Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and friend Sue Thomas. This pocket card layout is new to me. I love it, and would like to share it with others too.

In this video replay below of my February 26th Facebook Live, I'll show you how to make this style of fun fold card by CASEing the lovely card above that Sue sent me. I chose to use the same Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite she did. You'll see, however, that while we both used many of the same products with the same card layout, our cards are each unique and different. I hope you enjoy watching this video and find it inspiring and helpful in creating beautiful cards of your own.


Sand & Sea Suite by Stampin' Up!

Pocket cards are always fun to make and are a fun surprise for those who are lucky enough to receive one.

Ice Cream Corner Gift Card Holder

"I scream. You scream. We all scream for ICE CREAM." Yes, even in winter, I LOVE ice cream. Today's blog post features the video replay of a Facebook Live from last month. In it, I showcase the colorful and fun Ice Cream Corner Suite by Stampin' Up! This suite of coordinating products had me reminiscing about trips to the local ice cream parlor as a kid and later in life making those trips with my own children. I hope you enjoy my demonstration of these fun fold gift card holders as much as I enjoyed creating them. What a fun way to package a gift card to one's favorite ice cream shop for a delightful treat any time of year.

I remade the same fun fold gift card holder as above but used different paper and colors from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.

Darling Donkeys Pop-Up Card

I love this card. I had so much fun making it and sharing it on my February 8, 2021, Facebook Live in my Stampin' Peace VIP Group. I love it, first of all, because it is a fun fold card, more specifically, a POP-UP card! I promise you that after watching my video demonstration, you will see that making pop-up cards really is fun and really is easy. And everyone loves getting a pop-up card!

The second reason I love this card so much is that I made a picket fence using the Banners Pick A Punch. I was inspired to include a picket fence on this Darling Donkeys card by a card I saw created by one of my Merry Stampers Team Members, Avis Anderson. I thought it was so clever. I'm looking forward to making more picket fences on my cards and scrapbook pages thanks to Avis!

 

These are the cards created by Merry Stampers Teammate Avis Anderson that inspired me to make my own picket fence cards. I was so excited when the idea to combine the Darling Donkeys Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set with a white picket fence. Thanks for inspiring me, Avis! I see more picket fences in my future.139215981_10224065457814220_3557180751810801166_n

3 Ways to Showcase BOTH sides of your favorite DSP

Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers - I just can't get enough of them. So many choices of DSP collections in an array of themes, images, colors, and patterns. Don't even ask me to name my favorite. I can't choose just one as my favorite. AND, yet, there is a common problem when I use my Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers. Often times, I like many of you I'm sure, find it difficult to decide which side of the Designer Series Paper to use on my card or project. What's a paper crafter to do??? Well, in today's video, I have 3 solutions. 3 card layouts you can use to showcase BOTH sides of your Designer Series Paper. Yes, I said BOTH sides of the DSP. You don't have to choose. Hooray!

Please enjoy watching this video replay of a recent Facebook Live, then start creating with your favorite Stampin' Up! Designer Series Papers. And, if you come up with your own unique ways to showcase both sides of your DSP, be sure to share them!

 

Sweet raspberries in shades of Rich Razzleberry and a "book binding" fold make showcasing both sides of this paper easy and fun.

I snipped a 2" line from the center of the right edge to the middle of my DSP and folded back the corners to create this fun fold showing off both sides of my paper. It's unexpected, clever, and so easy!

Berry Blessings Stamp Set & Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper

I used a 3/4" x 4" strip of coordinating Designer Series Paper for an added touch to the inside of the card.

Sweet, Sweet Strawberry!

While I love a pretty winter snow (which is not happening in central Ohio this week), the gray days can be long and make me wish for warmer, sunnier days. Today's Sweet Strawberry birthday cards remind me of warm days and bright sunshine. I enjoyed making these cards and combining the Sweet Strawberry Stamp Set & Strawberry Builder Punch in the January - June Mini Catalog with the Berry Delightful DSP from the Sale-A-Bration Brochure. What a great combination of products. The Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green colors work so sweetly with them as well to create these bright, cheery cards sure to make anyone smile warmly.

Sending Happy Thoughts

There are so many reasons I love card making. I get to use amazing coordinating products in an array of fabulous colors and themes too numerous to name or count. I get to belong to a community of creative people who understand my love for stamping and paper crafting and inspire me to keep on stamping and creating. I get to express myself creatively and add my own personal touch to my correspondences. I get to inspire and teach others to enjoy stamping and paper crafting like I do. Best of all, card making keeps me spreading love, kindness, and happy thoughts in challenging times by sending the hand stamped cards I've made.

I made this beautiful set of cards to let friends and family they are thought of and loved. They feature the Hydrangea Hill Suite and Happy Thoughts Stamp Set - 2 of my favorite new products in the new January - June Mini Catalog. I hope you love these cards as much as I do. If so, you can download the Free Project Sheet I created for you.

Enjoy the Moments

Enjoy the Moments with simple stamping and with fun new ways to color your stamps. In the following video replay from my January 6th Facebook Live on Stampin' Peace with Mary Knabe, I'll show you an example of simple stamping with the Enjoy the Moments Stamp Set. Plus, I'll show you 2 ways to add multiple colors to a single stamp to make a big impact on your Corner Bouquet cards. I think you'll enjoy both styles of stamping and give them both a try.

I created the following 2 cards with 2 different techniques for adding multiple ink colors to a single stamp. Be sure to view the video above for technique demonstrations. They're fun and easy to do and make a big impact!

I colored my rubber stamp with Stampin' Write Markers in Melon Mambo, Bumblebee, Highland Heather, Soft Suede, and Shaded Spruce. Then I "huffed" on the stamp to remoisten the inks and stamped on Basic White card stock.

I used a different stamping technique to add multiple ink colors to my Corner Bouquet stamp for this card. This technique used Sponge Daubers and Ink Pads to add the various colors to my rubber stamp. Be sure to "huff" or breathe heavily on the inked stamp to remoisten the inks before stamping on Basic White card stock.

For a simple change, I used Bumblebee card stock to back the Basic White card stock on this card.
