May Your Season Sparkle Fun Fold

I saw someone’s Building Block Fun Fold card on the Mixed Up Crafters Facebook Group and I went to find Sam’s tutorial on how to make it. She made it as a 5″ x 7″ card and I converted it to a 4″ x 5 1/2″ card.

I cut my cardstock to 5 1/2″ x 8″. Score along to long edge at 2″, 3″, 4″, and 5″. Between the 3″ and 5″ scores, cut at 1″, 1 1/2″, 2 1/2″, 3″, 4″, and 4 1/2″ from the top. (see photo)

Bundles – Snowflake Splendor Suite, Snowflake Wishes
Stamp Sets – Snowflake Wishes

Thank You Snow Much

I really love snowflake stamps and dies, I almost buy every set that I see. So, obviously, I had to have the Snowflake Splendor Suite.

Over the weekend some demonstrators in my area put on a Facebook gathering showcasing the new August – December 2020 mini catalog products. Usually this event is in person but COVID. I signed up to make cards as prizes and this is what I came up with.

I knew I wanted to use the Winter Snow embossing folder on vellum because I thought it would be so pretty. I also love the combination of Balmy Blue and Highland Heather for a snowflake scene so I chose the card-base to be Highland Heather with splatters of Balmy Blue, especially the glitter paper. I attached the vellum with glue dots behind some of the snowflakes and Stampin’ SEAL behind the label.

Supplies:
Bundles – Snowflake Splendor Suite, Snowflake Wishes Bundle
Stamp Sets – Snowflake Wishes
Die Cutting & Embossing – So Many Snowflakes dies, Stitched Nested Labels dies, Winter Snow embossing folder

Say Goodbye to the Magnolia Lane Memories & More Card Pack

The Magnolia Lane card pack coordinates with the Magnolia Lane Large Specialty Memories & More Cards & Envelopes and makes these cards so quick and easy to put together. Most of the cards are made with just the 3″ x 4″ card on the front popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals. On the insides I used the 4″ x 6″ cards.

Say Goodbye to the Come Sail Away Memories & More Cards

I love to buy the Memories & More card packs but I forget to use them. I recently sent a make & take using these Memories & More cards along with paper from the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper. Each card will be a little different because there are only two of each design in the card pack. Here was my example card for them.

Very Versailles Recessed Panel Card

I’ve posted a recessed panel card before but I thought it would work well with this stamp set and a torn edge.

I stamped the script background on Very Vanilla, tore about an inch off, and then inked the edges with Crumb Cake. I put a piece of the Pressed Petals DSP on the cardbase for the background in the recess and popped the panels up. The flowers come from Beautiful Bouquet stamp set and cut out with the Bouquet Bunch dies. The leaves are from the Leaf Punch and I used the Banner Triple Punch on the sentiment. For the larger flowers, I stamped using Rocco Rose, used the dauber to put Merry Merlot on the edges and stamped again.

Very Versailles Love

This card was inspired by a Jennifer McGuire video where she was stenciling and masking. I die cut a heart out of Very Vanilla cardstock, masked off the all but the heart on the front of my card, then stamped. I’d recommend using the largest heart die from the Stitched Be Mine dies and not the one that just does stitches like I did. 🙂 I used a craft knife to finish cutting out the heart. I stamped the words, frame, leaves, and a heart inside the heart before inking with Crumb Cake. Then I put the heart in place, removed the outside, and inked around with Soft Sea Foam. That didn’t set off the heart well enough so I stamped the leaves and added the heart frame. I finished it off with the sentiment on dimensionals. I was trying to make a one layer card, maybe next time. 🙂

Shabby Chic with Very Versailles

When I first saw this stamp set, I thought it would be perfect for a shabby chic or collage style card with lots of inking. For this card, I stamped the script background a few times on a piece of Thick Very Vanilla in Crumb Cake and then added more ink to the background using a make up brush. The leaf image was stamped with Early Espresso. I die cut the frame using one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies and popped it up. For a final touch, I die cut the large flourish from the Flourish dies out of the Petal Pink vellum. I embellished the sides with the Woven Threads Trim and popped up the middle panel. To get just the tassels from the trim, pull out the thread holding them together.
