Window Flip Card with Painted Harvest

Hi Stampers,

Yes, I reached for my Painted Harvest stamp set AGAIN!!! LOL This time I actually made a sunflower with it and used the Window Flip Card Technique. The sentiments I used are from the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set.

I used the new Everyday Label  punch and attached a scrap piece of cardstock to the piece I punched out back  into the punch to make it smaller.

This is the inside of the card:

This is the backside of the card:

Window Flip Card Instructions:

There are three main pieces of cardstock on this card:

  • 4-1/4" x 5-3/8" Crushed Curry cardstock
  • 3-1/2" x 5-3/8" Whisper White cardstock
  • 3" x 11" Garden Green cardstock, scored at 5-1/2"

Make sure you use a strong adhesive like Fast Fuse or Sticky Strip to adhere the flap behind the card. I used the green tombow glue on mine.

Punch a 2" circle from the front of the Garden Green cardstock. I ran my through the Big Shot with the petal burst embosssing folder.

Be sure to add the Painted Harvest Bundle to your shopping bag!

Triple Time Stamping with Painted Harvest

Hi Stampers,

I used the triple time stamping technique with the new Painted Harvest stamp set. This time I stamped with colors of pink. For this card I used Sweet Sugarplum and Rich Razzleberry on Very Vanilla cardstock. I used some retired ribbon in Rich Razzleberry. The sentiment is stamped with the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set. I used the stitched oval framelits to cut out the sentiment.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #232-Happy Celebrations

#232

Hi Stampers,

What a colorful combo we have this week for our DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. I finally got to ink up a new set that was in the Occasions catalog and will be carried over to the new on June 1. I am always in need of birthday cards so that is what I went with.

You emboss first with the coordinating embossing folder and then stamp with the inks. They emboss quite deep. I noticed I did use a little too much pressure on my stamps and the ink got inside the grooves of the debossed area. Oh well. I'm still happy with it.

Don't forget you only have 6 more days to order from the Occasions catalog!!! Place your order now!!!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the STARS:


Oh So Succulent

Hi Stampers,

Well as much as I tried to convince myself I did not need the Oh So Succulent Bundle, somehow it ended up at my house **wink**. I'm sad that Stampin' Up! is retiring this set. I thought this set would be so popular. Succulents are so popular right now and EVERYWHERE!!! I always seem to jump on the bandwagon when I see that "I might not be able to order that" and go into an instant panic. Before you know it, it's at my house.

I am so glad I ordered this bundle. There are SO MANY beautiful cards on Pinterest made with this bundle. I will definitely be playing with this set a lot.

My card is based on the layout of a card I received from my upline, Dawn Olchefske. I just changed the sentiment and stamp set.

Let's CASE!!!

Hi Stampers,

Have you ever CASE'D? someone? CASE stands for copy and share everything/copy and steal everything.....I've heard many different variations.. It really makes cardmaking or scrapbooking easier. For instance, my upline, Dawn Olchefske, posted this adorable card on her blog-

Dawn

I chose to use the hexagon "shape" and used a different sentiment to make this card "my own". Easy, peasy, right?

Just changing things up a little bit makes this YOUR creation with using THEIR card as your inspiration. What will you CASE today now that you know the definition? Happy Stamping!!!

Happy 17th Birthday Connor!!!

Hi Stampers,

Babyconnor

Our oldest grandson, Connor, turned 17 a little over a week ago and we celebrated this past weekend. As with boys his age, what is one of the things they like best? If you said video games, you got it right. I googled a game controller and printed out an outline. I also traced inside for the liner. I even uploaded one for you!!!

Download Game-controller

For the controls I used the 1-1/4" circle and 1" circle punches. For the tiny ones, I used the balloon, star and 1/4" circle punches. I also used the classic  label punch when the card was folded to cut out the "center". I just placed the punch a smidgeon down. I hope this makes sense.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #211-All Wrapped Up

Hi Stampers,

Yes, I have been missing in action for 3 weeks!!! I apologize but the holidays just kind of engulfed me and I was overwhelmed (to say the least) lol. Now that they are over, I hope to be back to posting  a lot more!!!! The Stars took off the week of Christmas so we are back with a sketch challenge this week.

#211

I love the sketch pad challenges!!! Grab your stamp set, paper and GO!!!

DSCN0012

How versatile is this stamp set? I mean, really, using a Christmas stamp set for birthdays? Genuis idea!!  This card is the kind of card you would have to hand deliver because of the "ribbon" attached to the top. I suppose, though, you could have adhered the card closed around the outside and made this a pocket card.

Paper: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pop of Pink DSP

Double Z Fold Stylized Happy Birthday!!!

 I have been wanting to make the double Z fold card for awhile now. They are all over Pinterest. Some are SO HIGHLY DETAILED and just gorgeous!!! I am always in need of birthday cards (who isn't?) so I thought I would start there.

They are really quite easy to make. Cut cardstock 4-1/4" x 5-1/2". Fold in half and then fold one side back to the center fold. The strip is actually cut 1" x 11" and scored at 2-3/4" and 5"1/2 inches. EASY PEASY!!! I attached the balloons with a small strip of window sheet with a glue dot.
