And One More Fancy Fold

Hi!  Back today with another Fancy Fold featuring the other sheet of Designer Series Paper in the bulk package.

Fancy Fold, Magnolia Lane, DSP, #2020Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Forever Blossoms, Here's a Card

This fold, like the one on Wednesday, allows you to see both sides of the Designer Series Paper as well.  New for me, the use of Designer Series Paper as the base of the card.

For this card, I used a 5 1/2″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper.  On the 12″ side, score at 1 3/4″, 4 3/4″, and 7 3/4″.   The measurements for the layers are:

Inside Whisper White Layer – 3 3/4″ x 5″
Mossy Meadow Mat – 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
Front Whisper White Panel – 2 3/4″ x 4″

The sentiment panels are die cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies.

The leaves are from the Forever Blossom stamp set and stamped in Mossy Meadow.

The two cards featured in posts this week are shown in this video from my Tuesday night Facebook Live:

Don’t forget, every $50 order (prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item!

Double Sided View

Hi!  Today I have a quick and easy fun fold that allows you to see both sides of our gorgeous Designer Series Papers!

Fun Fold, Magnolia Lane, DSP, #2020Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Isn’t this paper gorgeous?  Did you know you can purchase a pack of Magnolia Lane bulk Designer Series Paper – it features two of the sheets that come in the normal Designer Series Paper pack – but you get 10 of each sheet!  This is great for mass producing cards!

Ok, so, for this card, I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 4″ x 5 1/4″.  On the 5 1/4″ side, I made a 1 1/2″ cut at  2 5/8″ (this is the center of 5 1/4″).  Then I scored from the upper right and lower right corners to the end of the cut line.  Fold back on those score lines and this is what you get!  The base of the card is Petal Pink – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ folded in half.

The butterfly is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set and is stamped in Petal Pink ink.  The coordinating dies will be available on Feb 4 – while supplies last and are called Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Moments stamp set and is stamped in Mossy Meadow.

The sweet thing about this layout – it works with all of your Designer Series Papers!  Just pick your favorite and whip up some quick cards to have on hand!

I’ll share a video of how I made this card in a few days!

….and the Hive

Hi!  Back today with another project featuring the Honey Bee Suite!  This time, it is paired with the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box!

Bees, Hive, Mini Curvy Keepsake, Honey Bee, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

Aren’t these adorable?  I got this idea from Demonstrator Doris Pichler and just had to make some!  The hive fits perfectly on the sides of the Mini Curvy Keepsake Box!  Cute, right?

Just stamp the hive on all 4 sides of the box before you assemble!  The big bee on top is cut in half and attached with a glue dot on each side of the handle so that the recipient can still open the box.

The hive is stamped with Crushed Curry ink.  The bees are stamped with Memento Black Ink and colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Blend.  Three Hershey Nuggets or 5 Hershey Kisses fit inside.  I am sure Bit ‘o Honeys will fit as well, but I didn’t have any on hand.

Oh, and yes, the Mini Curvy Keepsake Dies – which debuted in the Holiday Catalog ARE STILL available for purchase!  Sweet, right?!

Just click on the product below to order your own set!

Don’t forget, a $50 purchase (prior to S/H and tax) earns you a FREE Sale-A-Bration item – like the Golden Honey Specialty Designer Series Paper.

If you have a long wish list, consider joining my Demonstrator Team – for just $99+tax you get the $125 in merchandise (you choose!)  PLUS – during Sale-A-Bration you also get a mini paper cutter, 48 6″x6″ pieces of Designer Series Paper from different Occasion packs, and any stamp set of your choosing!  (Hostess sets and Sale-A-Bration sets excluded).  PLUS – you will get a FREE Paper Pumpkin as well!   Oh, and did I mention there is NO OBLIGATION and NO REQUIREMENT to make another purchase!  This is an awesome deal that is only available during Sale-A-Bration!  So join my team today!  Join the Fun

For the Love of Honey

Hi!  Welcome to the New Occasions Catalog!  I LOVE this catalog!  So many great products and loaded with inspiration!

I’ll admit, I wasn’t in love with this suite when I first skimmed through the catalog, but after seeing a few creations, I knew I had to get it.  On Tuesday, I shared this bundle in my Facebook Live for these two cards.

Bees, Hello, Honey Bee, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

This layout may look familiar as I did share it last year during Sale-A-Bration featuring the Butterfly Designer Series Paper.  I couldn’t resist, since I had a few scraps laying on my table to make it again with this new suite.  The Designer Series Paper is a Sale-A-Bration item that you can earn FREE when making a $50 minimum purchase (prior to S/H and tax) in my on-line store.  The Bee is stamped in StaZon Jet Black ink and die cut using the coordinating dies.  I used Daffodil Delight Dard Stampin’ Blend to color the bee and then Wink of Stella Clear on the wings.  The sentiment is from the set as well – and punched using the Classic Label Punch.

Bees, Honey Bees, Thinking of You, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2020Occasions

For this card, I used a few more of the dies to cut the honeycomb, hive and bees.  Crushed Curry Ink, JetBlack StaZon and the Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend are my colors.

You will find both cards in this video:

If you purchase the bundle and add in cardstock or the Stampin’ Blends, you can select the Golden Honeycomb Designer Series Paper FREE!

Let It Snow Tag

Hi!  Today I have a darling tag for you made with the Let It Snow suite.

Snowman,Let it Snow, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

As you probably guessed, I am having tons of fun with this suite!  These tags are cute and simple and leave plenty of room on the back for a message if needed.

The snowman is stamped in Jet Black Stazon Ink and colored with markers – Basic Grey, Real Red, Garden Green and Pumpkin Pie.  his arms were punched from Soft Suede cardstock.

The tag itself is Coastal Cabana and the top is created using the Delightful Tag punch – this is a fun punch – as you can get 3 different looks on the top depending on the width of your paper.  A scrap of Designer Series Paper is layered near the bottom from the Let it Snow Specialty Paper pack.

Here’s a look at the back of the tag:

Let It Snow, Snowmen, Tags, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

For the sentiment, I stamped in Real Red ink and punched opposite corners with the Detailed Trio Punch.   The Real Red braided ribbon finishes it off.

I hope you have enjoyed this week’s Let It Snow Suite projects.  I do have more – but I will move on to something different next time!

Thanks for stopping by!

A Little Winter Inspiration

Hi! This week I am featuring the Let It Snow Suite in the Holiday Catalog!  I hope you enjoy it!

To kick it off, I have this adorable Kisses Gift Card Holder for you!

Gift Card Holder, Kisses, Snowmen, Let it Snow, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

I truly fell in love with this suite in the Holiday Catalog and I believe you will, too!  Who couldn’t use a cute way to present a gift card!  (And a little chocolate!)

The snowmen are from the Let it Snow Designer Series Specialty Paper.  The sentiment and snowflakes are from the Snowman Season Stamp Set.  The beauty of this bundle – it comes complete with stamp set, punch, specialty paper, and embellishments!  So many uses for this suite with the upcoming holidays.

The base of this project measure 6 3/4 x 9 3/4″.  Here’s where to score:

On the 9 3/4″ side, score at 2 3/4″, 5 1/4″, 6 1/4″, 7 1/4″, 8 1/4″, and 9 1/4″

On the 6 3/4″ side, score at 1″ and 5 3/4″.

Cut off the sides from the top to the 5 1/4″ score line.

Cut off the two small bottom tabs.

Cut in on the 6 1/4, 7 1/4 and 8 1/4″ score lines.

Here’s a template to show you what your card stock should look like when you are done, and the placement of the Tear & Tape to make the box:

Kisses Gift Card Template, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

And here is a video showing how I made this project.  It is the second project – the first is a card that will coordinate with this adorable gift card holder:

Happy Birthday Deer

Hi!  How are you!  Hope your weekend is going well!  Today I have a card for you featuring the Nature’s Beauty Stamp Set.

Birthday, Masculine, Deer, Natures Beauty, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #Holiday2019

Did you know that for every set sold, Stampin’ Up! is donating $3 to Mental Illness organizations around the world?  Here in the US, the funds raised will support the National Association of Mental Illness (NAMI).    During the month of October, I was matching that amount and have decided to continue to match it through the end of the year.   So, if you purchase this set through my on-line store, $6 of your $21 purchase will be donated to NAMI!

Ok – on to the card.  I used Crumb Cake Cardstock for my base.  The trees from the set are stamped in Jet Black Stazon ink.  I used Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze and Old Olive inks to lightly sponge on color.

For the deer, I once again used Jet Black Stazon ink.  I then used Watercolor Pencils – Early Espresso and Cajun Craze along with a Blender Pen to color him.  A touch of Old Olive for the grass finished off the panel.

The Stitched Nested Label framelits were used to cut the deer and Early Espresso  mat behind it.

The card is finished by stamping the sentiment  from the Here’s A Card Stamp Set in Jet Black Stazon ink.

If you would like to help me reach my goal of raising $75 for NAMI by the end of December, simply click on this link to purchase the Nature’s Beauty stamp set.

Have You Seen Snow?

The temperatures are starting to drop and today’s high will be 32.  While I have yet to see snowflakes (my daughter has), they are not far behind and I know that some areas have already seen the fluffy white stuff.   So, today, I am sharing the first card I made with the Let It Snow suite of products:

Snowman, Christmas, Let It Snow, #Holiday2019, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I love snowmen – they are adorable!  So I couldn’t resist the Let It Snow Suite in the Holiday Catalog.  This year’s snowman set comes with a coordinating snowman builder punch, so you can accessorize as you like

The snowman is stamped with Jet Black StaZon Ink.  His nose is colored with a Pumpkin Pie marker.  The hat is stamped in Jet Black StaZon as well – and is colored with Basic Gray, Garden Green and Real Red markers.  The arms are punched from Soft Suede cardstock.

The “Snowfall” is from the Let it Snow Designer Series Paper Pack and is a great background for him.  This is mounted on a piece of Basic Black cardstock.  The base of the card is our Thick Whisper White.

  • Base:  Whisper White – 4 1/4″ x 11″ – score at  5 1/2″ and fold.
  • Basic Black:  3 3/16″ x 3 3/16″
  • Let it Snow Designer Series Paper: 3″ x 3″

The sentiment is stamped in Coastal Cabana ink.

This is a quick card that would be easy to mass produce if you are looking for a design.  There are at least 2 different “snowfall” patterns in the Let It Snow Designer Series Paper pack that would allow you to make 64 cards similar to this from the suite.

I hope you enjoyed today’s project!
