Another Stampin’ Up Band Together with Bloom and Grow Cut Front Panel Card

August 16, 2019

I used up some scraps leftover from my experimenting with the Cut Front Panel Technique card.
You can see it HERE.

I started with this design but made my split straight across the card.
And since I had a few different panels from experimenting I made another one with a black card base.

I like how the additional black card base really finishes the card, what do you think?

If you didn’t catch the video on Wednesday, take a look now HERE.

Hope your weekend involves a little bit of crafting!

Stampin’ Up Band Together with Bloom and Grow Cut Front Panel Video Tutorial

August 14, 2019


Here is a simple way to put a WOW on your card front. Simply cut out a section of the front panel on the card.
I used the large bloom from the Band Together stamp set along with the pretty sentiment from the Bloom and Grow stamp set.
The Birch Background stamp is a great way to jazz up the background in a subtle way.

How did I do it?

On the card below, I placed the cut panel flat on the front. It gives a different look than just adding a sentiment banner across the front.

On the next card below, I placed fun foam under the cut panels on the front. A great look, don’t you think?

I stamped the bloom on the inside with the fantastic font in the Bloom and Grow stamp set.

Stampin’ Up We’ll Walrus Be Friends

August 12, 2019

I keep saying the name of this stamp set…and I get it, but then, I don’t know…
it’s kinda hard to say to get the pun!
But one thing I do know, the walruses are just so darn cute!

I did mask off the “hi” to make it flow with the “It’s your Birthday!”


Since I used my Stampin’ Blends to color the cuties, I cut out the inside one  and adhered it to  the inside since it would bleed onto the back of the card base if I had colored on the card base.

Stampin’ Up Beautiful Friendship Double Z-Fold Fun Fold

August 9, 2019

Here is another card I made at a Shoebox Swap a few weeks ago. It is called a Double Z-Fold Fun Fold Card.

My friend, Sarah Rigby, created a card for us at the Shoebox Swap that had variations of  stamping off and with more layers with Purple Posy cardstock. It is lovely.  I just simplified it a bit and used black as my Z-Fold to highlight the black ink on the sentiment. I loved the White Polka Dot tulle she used on her card.

You can see how to make one of these Double Z-Fold Fun Fold Cards on my Post HERE with the SU Bird Banter.

The Highland Heather cardstock is 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″ on the 11″ side

The Basic Black folded section is 3-1/4″ x 10″ scored at 2- 3/4″ and 5-1/2″

The Whisper White panels are 2-1/2″ x 3 (x2) and 3″ x 4-1/4″

Stampin’ Up Praiseworthy Prose Bundle Shimmer Black Embossed Fun Foam Letters Video

August 7, 2019

Watch this video to see how I popped up the Hand Lettered Prose Dies with fun foam!

And I embossed them with Shimmer Black Emboss powder.

The popped up letters make all the difference on this card…it looks so cool especially against the trendy geometric See a Silhouette Designer Series Paper.

Below you can see how the Glitter Fun Foam letters look compared to the Shimmer Black Embossed ones…both look super.
