Stampin’ Up Buckle Card Video Tutorial with Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper

September 11, 2019

I finally cut into the gorgeous Mosaic Mood Designer Series Paper!

I made a Fun fold called a Buckle Card because of the way the card closes- a belt slides into a buckle:)
Here is a video showing how to make one:

The beautiful hummingbirds with the clear embossed texture on the DSP were easy to fussy cut with my Stampin’ Up Paper Snips. I made two different variations depending on how the hummingbird was facing.

The Stampin’ Up Here’s a Card stamp set had a great sentiment that fit the card wonderfully.

Measurements:
Card Base is 4-1/4″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 5-1/2″ on 8-1/2″ side.
The Leaves DSP is  2-3/4″ x 4″ and the belt DSP is 1-1/2″ x 3″.
The Belt is 1-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ scored at 5-1/4″ so there is a 1/4″ flap to attach to the card base.
The embossed circle is 2-1/4″, the bordering circle is 2-1/2″. Inside panel is 4″ x 5-1/4″.

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

Stampin’ Up You Always Deliver Gift Card Holder

August 19, 2019

 

I just loved the Stampin’ Up You Always Deliver stamp set when I first saw it
since I have been known to tell my UPS driver that he is one of my favorite people!
However, I made him a USPS carrier fo this card:)

I made a gift card holder simply by scoring a 4-1/4″ x 9-3/4″ piece of cardstock
at 4-1/4″ and 8-1/2″ on the 9-3/4″ side and folding up the edge at 8-1/2″ to create a pocket.

Of course, you know I cut my oval scallops out of the Crumb Cake panel on the front;)

Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

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 Rustic Retreat

August 5, 2019

I thought it was about time for a masculine card…
but then my sister-in-law would love this buck come November!

Did you notice the custom sizes of the Stitched Rectangle Dies? In the past, I have made some of my dies sand punches cut in different sizes by just lining up the cutting edge of the dies on an already cut piece of cardstock. But, this was the first time I did it with my Stitched Rectangles…oh my gosh…it was so easy because the stitches on the die fall right into the already cut stitches! So there you have it…those Stitched Rectangles have just grown even more versatile!!!

Some great images in the Stampin’ Up Rustic Retreat stamp set:
