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

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!

Well Suited in 2 Styles!

Take a look at two styles of masculine cards I created with the Well Suited Suite by Stampin' Up! One card is created using several coordinating papers from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper pack. The other card is a fun fold card and features one piece of the Well Suited Designer Series Paper but showcases BOTH sides of it. Take a look at my video replay below of a recent Facebook Live I did. You'll get all the dimensions you need plus some tips for successful card making as you view my video demonstration of these two masculine cards. Of course, these layouts are perfect for any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers. 

 

I absolutely LOVE this Well Suited Suite but most especially its Designer Series Paper. It's perfect for making masculine cards to celebrate the special men and boys in your life. It's bright. It's bold. It's fun. I created two a great cards featuring this fabulous Well Suited Designer Series Paper.

This card layout is awesome for any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers.

Look at all the details, in addition to the many pieces of DSP, I used on this card to make it fun and interesting! Twine in Basic Gray & Night of Navy, Matte Black Dots, and card stock punched with the Double Oval Punch. They're all great separately, but together, they're a party celebrating your special guy!
Well Suited Suite by Stampin' Up!

 

The card below features one of my new favorite fun folds because I love being able to feature BOTH sides of my favorite Designer Series Papers as often as I can. This is another great card layout that will work with any and all of your favorite Designer Series Papers by Stampin' Up!

Yes, you can add multiple colors to a single stamp image. I colored on the butterfly and hummingbird solid stamps with Stampin' Write Markers.

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.

This sweet strawberry hello card was created using the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch. Punch out 4 pieces of DSP and flip 2 over so everyone can enjoy both sides of this cheery DSP.

True Love Happy Anniversary Card

Black and white with a pop of color! That's what this card featuring the True Love Designer Series Paper is all about. The True Love Designer Series Paper features floral prints and geometric patterns in black and white making it versatile enough to use for just about any reason or occasion. Add a pop of color to it, and it's even more amazing to create with.

For today's card, I combined the True Love Designer Series Paper and Always in My Heart Bundle. Pops of color were added with Sponge Daubers and ink pads in Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Highland Heather. Tearing the DSP and popping up the curvy Happy Anniversary banner with Stampin' Dimensionals are two ways of adding even more detail and interest to this pretty card celebrating love.

I hope you like this card. If you'd like to re-create this one or create one of your own similar to this, I've prepared a Free Project Sheet for you.

Sand & Sea Memory Pages

It's pretty cold in central Ohio this week and a snowstorm is on its way. Fortunately, my plan is to stay in and work and craft the weekend away. I'll even have a couple friends here for crafting. While I do enjoy a beautiful snowfall, I do dream of days by the beach with sunny skies, warm breezes, and shelling. Our Stampin' Up! Sand & Sea Suite make creating beach themed paper crafts easy and fun. Today's post shows a 2-page scrapbook layout featuring the fun beach and seashell products from the Sand & Sea Suite. My Facebook Live video replay below shows you just how I made this layout and includes and couple of different ways you can add color to the beautiful Pearlescent Paper I used for the seashells. I hope you'll take a look at the video and be inspired by my demonstration.

An alternate use for these scrapbook pages would be to frame and display them with your favorite beach day memories. They make wonderful gifts too.

I love the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper used as the sky and beach for this layout.

Friends Are Like Seashells

It's true. Friends are like seashells, each unique and amazing and beautiful in their own way. Like seashells, we collect these friends through our life's journey and treasure them and the memories that brought us together through the years. There is so much to love about the Sand & Sea Suite in our January - June Mini Catalog but my favorite parts of it are the Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle and Pearlescent Specialty Paper. These products combined with Sahara Sand card stock and foil sheets helped me create simple yet stunning cards, each slightly different. 

Please enjoy this video replay of my January 21st Facebook Live. I hope you will be inspired to create and perhaps even learn something new as you view this video. 

Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

This first card couldn't be anymore simple. I cut a piece of Pearlescent Specialty Paper 5 1/4" x 4" and embossed it with my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine and Seashells 3D Embossing Folder and adhered it to my Sahara Sand card base. The card really shows off the details of this embossing folder. Simple and so very elegant.
Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

The two cards below show a side-by-side comparison of my first card and my second card. Again, I started with a piece of Pearlescent Specialty Paper, this time cutting it to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I then die cut it using my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine with the large Seaside Seashells Die. Next, I placed my die cut paper into the Seashells 3D Embossing Folder (matching up the shells,etc) and ran it through the Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine again. I then used my Stampin' Dimensionals to adhere the die cut & embossed Pearlescent Paper to a piece of 5 1/4" x 4" Sahara Sand Foil. Layers were then adhered to a Sahara Sand card base. I used Basic White card stock cut to 5 1/4" x 4" on the inside of the card.

Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

Just love this sentiments. What a wonderful analogy.
Friends Are Like Seashells Bundle & Pearlescent Specialty Paper by Stampin' Up!

Do you see the difference in each of the following 3 cards. The difference is the stamping. The first card (center front) was not stamped at all. On the second card (upper left), I "stamped off" each of the seashells with Sahara Sand ink. One the third card (upper right), I stamped each of the seashells in Sahara Sand ink at full strength. TIP:  For the 2nd and 3rd cards, you want to die cut, then stamp shells, set ink with Heat Tool, and then emboss with 3d Seashells Embossing Folder.

Mercury Glass Designer Acetate - How to use it?

The Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate is one of those products that intrigues me yet intimidates me at the same time. I'm guessing that I am not the only one who feels this way. I figure, therefore, that it is time for me to step out of my comfort zone and play with this Mercury Glass Designer Acetate and see what I can come up. I hope showing you how I used it to make 3 different cards through the video replay below of my January 13th Facebook Live inspires you to do some creating with the fun new Hydrangea Hill Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. Give it a try. I think you'll find it is a lot of fun to create with.
