Diamond Fold Easter Card

Diamond Fold Easter Card

Falling In Love DSP

When trying to use products in another way then presented in the catalog, I came up with using the Falling in Love DSP as a backdrop for this Easter card.  The star of the show is the way that the card is folded.  It fits in a standard A2 envelope.  The sentiment is from the Suite Sentiments stamp set. Stampin UP Suite Sentiments stamp set

Timeless Tags Thank You Gift

Thank you gift made with Timeless Tags

Fun Thank You Gift

These fun little thank you gifts were for the people that placed an order with me last month.  I used the That’s the Tag Stamp set to highlight the cut out shape from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Die.  It was stamped on the lace paper from the Falling In Love Designer Series paper.  I ended up cutting three separate layers.

The first layer was the lace paper stamped with the oval dots image and cut with the butterfly die.  The second layer was an oval cut with the pink and tan bokeh paper and the third layer had the To: and From: sentiment stamped on the back.  I layered the three together with the Tombow glue lining up the hole at the top.

I finished it up with a bit of the Very Vanilla 1/4″ Satin Ribbon and one of the Falling In Love embellishment flowers.

Timeless Tags Stained Glass Paper Flower

Image of Timeless Tags Stained Glass effect flower

Stained Glass Technique

This card demonstrates that paper piecing can definitely have the feel of stained glass.  For this card, I cut the flower tag from the Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies three times. One using basic black cardstock, and one each of the sugarplum glimmer paper and the mint macaron glimmer paper.

Using an oval cut with the Stitched Framelit dies as my base, I attached the black flower outline to the oval first and filled in the missing pieces with glimmer paper.   It is like putting the puzzle back together so to speak.

I hope you try out this technique. Let me know what you think in the comments section. I love hearing from you.

Nailed It Bundle

Nailed It Tools Card Image

Masculine Card

At times, it can seem like there are really limited options out there for making a masculine looking card.  Stampin’ UP has done a great job by creating this bundle of products to do just that.  Appropriately named the Nailed It Bundle, this stamp set and coordinating framelits make this task simple.

Pair it with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Embossing Folder and you have a great looking card with minimal effort.  But no one else will guess that!

A Great Tip

Here is a great tip to get a good impression from the embossing folder.  Before running the silver foil paper piece through the Big Shot in the dynamic embossing folder, spritz the white paper backing with a little water using the Stampin’ Spritzer. It will soften the paper enough so it won’t crack.

Remember that the sandwich for the Big Shot requires one less clear plate as the folder is a lot thicker.

I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from this set for the tool card.

Life Looks Beautiful On You

Cupcakes & Carousels DSP Stack

This super simple card is using the fabulous Cupcakes & Carousels DSP paper stack.  I am loving the colors in this DSP.  It can be used in so many ways.

Today’s technique is simply to stamp the dancing girl image from the Beautiful You stamp set on very vanilla cardstock and the DSP.  I used early espresso ink for this.  I cut around the dress and hat with my paper snips on the DSP piece. Then you simply glue that piece on to the very vanilla piece to get the colorful dress image.  Then cut it out with the stitched shapes framelit and layer it with the Sale-a-bration glimmer paper in Bermuda Bay and another piece of the matching DSP cut in the square shape.  Pop them all up on dimensionals.

Carousel Birthday Wish

Image of Carousel Birthday Card

Color Palette

Featuring the new Occasions catalog Carousel Birthday stamp set from Stampin’ UP and the matching DSP paper stack, this handmade card makes for a special birthday. The colors in the Cupcakes & Carousels DSP stack inspired the color palette for the card.

Sentiments

The Carousel Birthday stamp set features two lovely old fashioned sentiments that go with the whimsical stamps in this set.  The inside of the card featured the second sentiment.

Image of Carousel Birthday Card Inside

The banners on the front of the card are hand cut.  The horse and the circus tent were fussy cut using paper snips and popped up on dimensionals. The ferris wheel image is stamp directly on the DSP using early espresso ink.

I hope you enjoy making today’s project.  If you currently do not have a demonstrator, I would love to earn your business.
