Stampin’ Up! Fancy Fold – Colorful Seasons

Every Wednesday night at 7:30 pm EST, I do a Facebook Live Tutorial.

This week I wanted to showcase a fun fancy fold card.

I took the original idea from Ann’s Paper Works and adapted it to a smaller size.

I do these tutorials every week and in case you miss one, you can always check them out on my YouTube channel.

Here are the instructions for today’s card and this week’s Facebook Live video:

Stampin’ Up! Lemon Zest Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a sketch challenge.  Happy hopping!

For today’s card I decided to pull out the Lemon Zest Stamp Set & Punch.  I started off with Peekaboo Peach cardstock which I embossed using the Pinewood Planks embossing folder.

I took a pattern from the Tutti-Frutti Designer Series Paper and matted it on Whisper White cardstock next.  I then stamped the sentiment from the Lemon Zest Stamp Set in Old Olive ink on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out using the Stitched Shapes Framelits.

I then stamped the lemons in Daffodil Delight ink on Whisper White cardstock and fussy cut out the sliced lemon and used the punch for the whole lemon.  I also cut out some leaves using the punch from Old Olive cardstock.  Before adhering the lemons down, I tucked behind everything a small banner of Old Olive cardstock.

I stamped the inside with the second part of the sentiment in Old Olive ink and added a whole lemon too.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Blossoming Basket – You Are Loved

I’m in denial that this is the last week of Sale-a-bration.  Sniff. Sniff.

You still have *4* days to earn FREE product with qualifying orders.  There is tons of product to choose from and once Sale-a-bration is done, they’ll be gone for good (except for the Basket Weave TIEF and Celebrate You framelits, phew).

You can also still join as a demonstrator.  Whether you want to do parties or not, and whether you want to build a business or just enjoy the discount for yourself…Sale-a-bration is the best time to join!!!  Don’t wait!

My card today starts off with Marina Mist cardstock.  I then took a panel of Soft Sky cardstock, embossed it with the Basket Weave embossing folder, and matted it on Whisper White cardstock.

I then took a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and stamped the basket from the Blossoming Basket Stamp Set in Versamark Ink.  I sprinkled it with white embossing powder and heat set it.  I colored it in with an Aqua Painter and Marina Mist, Emerald Envy, Daffodil Delight, Soft Sky, and Sweet Sugarplum inks.  I cut out it out using the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits and trimmed off the end.

I cut out a banner from Marina Mist and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock and wrapped around some Silver Baker’s Twine in a bow.  Lastly I stamped the sentiment from the Blossoming Basket Stamp Set in Sweet Sugarplum ink.

Enjoy!


Today’s card was inspired by challenges this week at Sunday Stamps; Stamp, Ink, Paper; and The Paper Players.

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card

So I am super-duper over the moon excited to announce that I’ve been picked to be part of the design team for the Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge.

The challenge is every other week and alternates sketch, color, and inspiration challenges.  I am so excited!!

Don’t forget to play along with this week’s sketch challenge!

Ready for this?!  My card takes all of 5 minutes to make.  Why? Because the patterned paper all comes from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack!

Add some cardstock and a nice sentiment and it comes together so quickly!

I started with a piece of Powder Pink cardstock.  I then adhered over it the flower pattern from the Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack.

I took another pattern from the card pack and wrapped a Linen Thread ribbon around it and then adhered it to the card front.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment from the Cake Soirre Stamp Set (covering the little line with washi tape) in Versamark Ink on Rich Razzleberry cardstock, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Picnic With You Card

I am so, so excited to share today’s card with you.

I had my eye on the Picnic with You Bundle from the beginning of the Occasions Catalog.  I just recently got it and I knew I had to get some ink on those stamps!

I think this will be a great stamp set & framelits for scrapbooking too – I think it’d be great for spring pictures or even Easter pictures (think eggs in the basket 😉

My card starts off with Soft Suede Cardstock.  I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock, matted it on Old Olive cardstock and adhered it to the card.  I used the Picnic with You Bundle (stamp set and matching framelits combined for a 10% discount) to create my scene.  I first stamped the images and then cut them out with the framelits using the Big Shot.

I used Soft Suede (basket), Real Red (blanket and apple), Daffodil Delight (cheese), Rich Razzleberry (bottle), Crumb Cake (bread), and Peekaboo Peach (butterflies) inks.  I stamped the sentiment in Real Red ink.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Picture Perfect Birthday Card

Today’s card is a clean and simple birthday card.

Sometimes you just need to throw together a card quick.  My go-to in those times is always Designer Series Paper.  It fills a page while still bringing the “awe” factor.

Add some ribbon and a nice sentiment and voila – quick and simple!

Today’s card starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then took a pattern from the Picture Perfect Birthday DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock, and then on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  I wrapped around some Lemon Lime Twist ribbon and adhered everything to the card.

I stamped the sentiment from the Picture Perfect Stamp Set in Bermuda Bay ink on Whisper White cardstock and added a Lemon Lime Twist banner behind it.

Quick.  Simple.  Pretty.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Eastern Palace – For You Card

This week’s Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop is a color challenge.  Happy hopping!

When I saw the colors this week, I knew that I was going to use the Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper.

With the Annual Catalog, looming (well, sorta) around the corner, I always feel this mad dash to use up the old DSP.  It’s time to use it up and make room for all the new pretties!

My card today starts off with Dapper Denim cardstock.  I then took two patterns from the Eastern Palace DSP and matted one on Whisper White cardstock and the other on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and adhered the cardsTock offset from one another on the card.  I wound a piece of Shimmer Basic Gray ribbon (free during Sale-a-bration) around the cardstock and adhered everything down.

I cut out a circle using the Layering Circles Framelits.  I dyed some Embossing Paste with a Lemon Lime Twist reinker and used one of the masks from the Pattern Party Decorative Masks and a Palette Knife to create the image on the circle.

I stamped the sentiment from the Happy Wishes Stamp Set (free during Sale-a-bration) in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with white embossing powder, and heat set it.  I adhered it down with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Sunshine & Rainbows Birthday

Happy spring!

What more says spring than Rainbows!

Well, first you need rain, and not snow, for rainbows which we have yet to have in Upstate New York, but soon enough we’ll have Sunshine & Rainbows, which is the bundle I used for today’s card.

My card starts off with Thick Whisper White cardstock.

Note: This thick cardstock is perfect when you’re using Whisper White as the base to your card.  It holds up much better and is able to “stand up” unlike the regular Whisper White.

I took Pool Party ink and a brayer to create the inked look behind my rainbow.

I then took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Sunshine & Rainbows Stamp Set in Rich Razzleberry ink in the bottom corner.  I added a piece of white sparkly washi tape from the Myths & Magic Specialty Washi Tape on either side of it.

I created my rainbow using the Rainbow Builder  Framelits and Berry Burst, Peekaboo Peach, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Island Indigo, Rich Razzlberry, and Sweet Sugarplum cardstock.  I cut the two clouds out of Whisper White cardstock and added a few Clear Epoxy Shapes around the card to finish it off.

Enjoy!

Stampin’ Up! Bird Banter Birthday

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times.  I’m such a sucker for punny sentiments.

It’s for that reason that Bird Banter Stamp Set immediately caught my eye in the Occasions Catalog!

My card today starts off with Calypso Coral cardstock which I layered with a pattern from the Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper, which is FREE and available right now through March 31st with a qualifying order!

I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the branch, leaves, bird, and balloon from the Bird Banter Stamp Set in Memento Black ink.  I colored them in using the Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, and Calypso Coral Stampin Blends Markers.  I adhered this on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock and then onto the card front.

I stamped the balloon on a separate piece of Whisper White, colored it in using Calypso Coral Stampin Blends, fussy cut it out, and adhered it using Stampi Dimensionals.  I stamped the sentiment (which I LOVE) on a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock in Memento Black ink and adhered it using Stampin Dimensionals.

Enjoy!
