Dandy Garden Gate Fold Card

Spring is nearly here, and I can hardly wait. I've been looking forward to warmer, sunnier days, blossoming trees and new life. And of course, it won't be long before we see dandelions popping up everywhere. While they are a weed and considered a nuisance, they can bring beauty to our days with their bright yellow flowers. Plus it's fun to make a wish and blow on one that is ready to spread its seed pods and make a wish. Either way, we can look for the good in this bit of nature. I can even remember back decades ago when I was teaching elementary school, being gifted a bouquet (or two or three) of yellow flowers. Oh, they smelled yucky especially in a hot classroom, but I always made a fuss over how excited I was to receive such a thoughtful gift. Any teachers reading this can relate, I am sure.

The video posted below is from a recent Facebook Live. In it, you'll find a demonstration of the Gate Fold Card. These are truly as easy as they are fun to make. So take a look, then give the Gate Fold Card a try. I think you'll be glad you did!

On this second Gate Fold Card, I wrapped Bumblebee ribbon around the card and tied a bow in the front before adhering my layer card stock and DSP layers to my gate fold panels.

Make 6 Hydrangea cards fast!

I love making one of a kind cards, but sometimes I need several cards at once or for a particular occasion. That can take a lot of time. But here's a solution to help you make 6 beautiful cards fast with Designer Series Paper and simple stamping. Enjoy this video replay of a recent Facebook Live. I hope you'll find it helpful and inspiring, so much so that you'll be motivated to make your own 6 cards, quickly and easily.

Card Dimensions: 

  • Highland Heather Card Base = 5 1/2" x 8 1/2", score at 4 1/4" on long side, fold in half.
  • Gorgeous Grape layer = 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
  • DSP = 5 1/4" x 4"
  • Basic White for inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"

 

I made these 6 cards fast with 1 sheet of Hydrangea Hill Designer Series Paper! I love everything about the Hydrangea Hill Suite! It is gorgeous and screams warm days and sunshine too.

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.

So Lucky to Know You

In today's post I have a video replay of a recent Facebook Live in which I demonstrate an easy-to-make Fun Fold Card and show you how to create shamrocks with the Heart Punch Pack. The Old Olive with metallic gold paper is from the Ornate garden Suite and makes these St. Patrick's Day cards elegant. And whether you're Irish or not, these cards are a nice way to express love and gratitude to those we are so lucky to know.
