Stampin’ Up! Big Wild Cats Triple-Twisted Easel Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Well – the weekend is upon us again!  Do you have something fun planned for Father’s Day on Sunday?  Did you remember that it was Father’s Day on Sunday?? 😉

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this fun fold card, here ’tis!

I first saw this Triple-Twisted Easel Fun fold on my Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team page – one of my talented team mates had posted it and…I loved it!  So – I shamelessly “stole” the fun fold and went out and did some looking around on the interwebs to figure out how to make the base.  I found a good video from MayMay Made It Crafts – and that became the basis for my card.  🙂

I decided to use the cool Wild Cats bundle with the Big Cats Dies and some In The Wild DSP to create a 3-D jungle scene.  Take a look-see:

And – it fits nicely with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge which is all about occasions! 🙂

I started by cutting an Early Evergreen cardbase – it’s 5 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ (a little shy of the “normal” size – so you may see this called an A2-ish sized card!).  I scored it at 4 1/4″ (as usual) – then used my Paper Trimmer to cut along the short side at 1 3/4″ and again at 3 1/2″.

Then I used the score blade to score three diagonal lines on the resulting strips.

I cut six 1 1/2″ x 4″ strips of In the Wild DSP – three each of two different designs, then used the Trimmer to create triangles.  Tip: take your time here and be sure that you’re cutting the triangles in the correct orientation (it matters!)  The video ‘splains how to do that a little better!

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the triangles to the card base.

I stamped several tropical plant images from Wild Cats in Evening Evergreen and a few in Soft Succulent (a couple full strength and one in stamped-off-once strength).  I cut them with the matching die in the Big Cats Die Set.  I also cut some cats from the In The Wild DSP and a few grasses in Crushed Curry and Merry Merlot.

The next step was to stamp the Wild Cats foliage in Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent on a Basic White panel. I matted the panel on Soft Succulent and adhered it to the inside of the card with Liquid Glue.

For the easel “stops”, I used Bumblebee Trinkets popped up on Mini Black Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I figured out where to put the trinkets by setting each “easel” how I wanted it and then adhering the trinkets on the inner liner.

Then it was time to decorate the front!  I used Liquid Glue to adhere all the die cut parts.  Tip:  be sure your die cuts don’t extend outside the bounds of your card front when the card is laying flat (like when you’re getting ready to put it in your Medium envelope)…

…And only use adhesive on the “front” facing triangles – otherwise…your easels won’t stand up!

Here’s a fun way to make the sentiment.  I stamped the Wild Cats sentiment in Crushed Curry on Basic White and cut it with a Tasteful Labels die.  At the same time, I cut the label a second time from the Basic White panel.  I cut a little strip of Window Sheet (or….use one of the saved sheets from one of your new photopolymer stamp sets – like…Wild Cats!).  I sandwiched this strip between the two die cut labels using Liquid Glue – then used that to tuck the sentiment into the scene.  That means it….”floats”!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got a stamped Wild Cat – his body is Crushed Curry and his stripes and face are Cajun Craze (these are three different stamps in the set).  Then I added some Evening Evergreen foliage…

…and a little more In The Wild DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  So…. Triple Twisted Easel – in A2-ish size!  What do you think??  I sort of LOVE IT!  I love having all that pop-y-up real estate to decorate and create a scene – like this tropical one from the Wild Cats stamp set and bundled Big Cats dies.  Also lots of space to showcase our gorgeous In The Wild DSP – or…whatever DSP suits YOUR pretty scene!!

I hope you like – and will try this fun fold soon!

Stampin’ Up! Hand-Penned Memories No-Stamp Cards!

Happy Tuesday, y’all!  Hope your week is going well!

I’ve got a no-inky-fingers card – well, actually TWO cards! – for you today!  Yep – I used the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and some Hand-Penned DSP to create two quick and easy cards for you – neither of which needs ANY ink!  Take a look-see:

The layout is loosely based on the sketch portion of the Inspired By challenge this week.

And the no-inky-fingers is thanks to the Just Us Girls Trend Week challenge.

Both cards start with a piece of Hand-Penned DSP matted on Evening Evergreen for the card front.

Next, I selected four smaller panels from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and matted them all on Evening Evergreen.  As you can see – one is the Portrait orientation and the other is in Landscape! 😉

Using Liquid Glue – I adhered the panels to each of the card fronts as shown.

I considered adding some bling – and decided against it.  Let the pretty paper do all the work! 🙂

For the inside of each card, I simply matted a strip of the Hand-Penned DSP on Evening Evergreen and added it to the bottom of a Basic White panel.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panels to Evening Evergreen mats and then into my corresponding Mint Macaron or Pale Papaya card bases and the cards were done!

My Basic White Medium Envelopes got one of the pretty stickers from the Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack on the fronts…

…and then more of the Hand-Penned DSP on the envelope flaps.

Et Voila!  Wow.  The entire Hand-Penned Suite simply does not disappoint!  From the gorgeous DSP to the oh-so-handy-and-lovely Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack – there is so much you can do to make stunning projects.  And that’s without even OPENING the Penned Flowers stamp set and Penned-Petals Dies!  And not an inky finger to be found!

I hope you like!

When you go to Tractor Supply AND you’re a VERY good boy…sometimes Mom and Dad will get you a new toy!

So – it’s always best to carry it out of the store yourself – that’s what big boys do.  😉

We’re waiting for Dad to bring the van up – Mom said it might be too hot on the pavement for my feets!

Stampin’ Up! Sea Life Seascape Box Card Fun Fold with Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – how’s the week been?  It’s managed to rain nearly every day this week – some pretty heavy, too.  We had the shoer here on Wednesday and we were grateful for a covered aisle, concrete floor and a big ole fan to help us stay cool.  Cuz…rain + GA Summer Heat = SAUNA!! 👀👀👀

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your day with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this fun-fold box card, here ’tis!

I’ve been seeing this Box Card around – several of my talented Critters-N-Creatin’ Team members have been posting them on our team FB page – and I figured…better late than never, right?!  So…I looked around and found a good tutorial from Dawn Griffin and then…made it my own with the Seascape stamp set and bundled Sea Life dies!  I used Beauty of the Earth DSP for my “ocean”.  Take a look-see:

And – I think this is a perfect depiction of summer (at least it’s mine!) so…I played along with the theme challenge over at The Paper Players!

The card base itself is a piece of Mango Melody cardstock, cut at 8 1/2″ x 10″.  Then it’s scored at 2″, 3 1/2″, 6 1/2″ and 8″ along the long side.  Then I turned it 90degrees and scored at 1 1/2″ and 7″ along the short side.

Then I cut along the score lines from the short edge to remove the outer rectangles.

Next, I made a mark at the 1 1/2″ point on the long edge (between the 3 1/2″ and 6 1/2″ score lines) and used my Paper Trimmer to score diagonal lines on bothe edges.

At this point, my cardstock looked like this.  Only…you know, in Mango Melody. 😉

Then I added Tear & Tape Adhesive to the outside of the small tabs, then trimmed the tabs down – making them shorter and angled.

At this point, I made the inside of the box.

I used a piece of Misty Moonlight paper from the Beauty of the Earth DSP and stamped a Seascape sentiment in Night of Navy in the middle.  Then I added the coral image in Granny Apple Green, some fish in Calypso Coral and some awesome bubbles in Misty Moonlight.  I love those bubbles!

I matted the panel on Granny Apple Green and adhered it to the inside of the yet-to-be-folded card base with Liquid Glue.

I folded and burnished all the scored lines and adhered the card together with the Tear & Tape – as shown in the video – gently pushing the top in, using the diagonal score lines to create the fold!

For the front, I cut another piece of the Beauty of the Earth DSP and stamped the coral and fishes and bubbles – then I cut it in half and adhered both pieces to Granny Apple Green mats and then to the front panels of the card.

 

I used the dies in the Sea Life die set to cut a seahorse and a coral from a piece of Rainbow Glimmer Paper and a second coral from a piece of Mango Melody Ombre Specialty Paper.

I created a belly-band with a narrow strip of Granny Apple Green that I wrapped sort of loosely around and secured at the front with Liquid Glue.

Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the die cut seahorse and coral to the bellyband – being careful to NOT get any glue on the card front!

I stamped a second Seascape sentiment in Night of Navy on another piece of the same Beauty of the Earth DSP and added some Misty Moonlight bubbles.  Then I cut it with a die from the Hippo & Friends Die set.

I adhered the sentiment to the belly-band decorations with Liquid Glue.

I pulled out the Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins and added some to the sentiment and the card front – and to the inner liner, too – and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got the coral, fishes and bubbles from Seascape on the front…

…and more of the Beauty of the Earth DSP – complete with bubbles! – on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this such a fun…fold?  I love that it makes a little box – big enough for a gift card or some cold, hard cash! 😉  Box Cards have sort of been making the rounds on Facebook and Pinterest, so I hope you’re going to give it a go.  And if you do – I think this combination of Beauty of the Earth DSP and the Seascape bundle is a perfect decoration to make a cool underwater ocean scene!

I hope you like!

Well.  The Battle of the Mats was borne – and lost – on Wednesday.

He went pretty bravely – I mean, a ride’s a ride, right??

…but it went down the tubes pretty fast.

The mats were pretty much impervious to all our potions and combing and thinning.  We spa-day’d him for almost an hour and a half.

We were ALL over it at that point and so I let him get down and we dried him off.

In the end, he was squeaky, shiny clean.  The top of him looks all good and silky!

…and he’s as beautiful and handsome as ever…

…but when you pet him it’s abundantly clear that….the mats won.  Big time.

And – he’s a more convinced than ever that humans are goofy.  I mean….MOM gets all excited when it’s spa day – like she loves it or something!

He’s not seeing the appeal. 😉

Stampin’ Up! Smooth Sailing Home with Video Tutorial

Hey, y’all – how’s the weekend going?  We had rain yesterday – which we rather desperately needed.  And it cooled it down for a bit – sort of like a swamp cooler does – cooler AND more humid! 🙂  But the plants and veggies were all mostly glad for a drink – and I was glad they got one that I didn’t have to give them!

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my Facebook Live, I sure appreciate you spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay to see how to make this card, here ’tis! Oh – and I DID also share some sneak peeks of the goodies from the Jul – Dec 2021 Mini Catalog that I got while we were in Maui.  Just sayin’!

Stampin’ Up! Elegantly Said Butterfly Sneak Peek for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a theme challenge to work with today and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

When I saw the theme, I took it as tacit permission to pull out one of my favorite new bundles – the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle!  And – I also wanted to play with a new stamp set coming on 4 May in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – called Elegantly Said.  Take a look-see:

And – here’s our theme challenge!

And I pulled my layout from this week’s FabFriday challenge, too!

I started with a piece of the pretty Peony Garden DSP (retiring soon and on SALE!!) that I adhered with Liquid Glue to the front of a Petal Pink card base.

Next, I matted another design from Peony Garden on Evening Evergreen cardstock (this is one of our new 2021-2023 In Colors and will be available to you on 4 May!) using Liquid Glue – then I adhered that to the card front.

On a smaller piece of Natural Touch Specialty Paper (available ONLY until 3 May!) I stamped the large corner image from the Elegantly Said stamp set (coming on 4 May!) in Evening Evergreen.  I stamped it once in one corner then turned it and stamped it in the opposite corner.  Hint: ink takes a hot second to dry on this Specialty Paper – so…go get a drink and a snack.  Or…pull out your Heat Tool and wield it on the low setting like I did to speed it along! 😉

Once it was all dry, I matted that panel on Evening Evergreen and then adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the Elegantly Said sentiment in Petal Pink on Basic White and cut it with the smaller oval in the Double Oval Punch.  I used the scalloped oval to punch an Evening Evergreen mat.  I popped the sentiment onto the mat with Stampin’ Dimensionals, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

With two pieces of gold Simply Elegant trim (part of the Simply Elegant suite and coming on 4 May), I tied a big loopy bow and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I stamped one of the butterflies from Butterfly Elegance (remember – a while back I told you that I’d cut the large butterfly image apart so that I can stamp just one at a time!) in Evening Evergreen on a piece of the Peony Garden DSP.  Then I cut it with the large die in the Brilliant Wings Die set.

I cut the same-size detailed Brilliant Wings butterfly from Vellum cardstock and adhered it to the solid butterfly with a Glue Dot.  Then I added some Genial Gems (new in the 2021-2022 AC!) down the body of the butterfly.

I used some Liquid Glue on top of the bow – and a double-stack of Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere the butterfly over the bow.

I added a final Genial Gem to the sentiment oval and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped a second Elegantly Said sentiment in Petal Pink on a Basic White mat.  I also added the pretty flower image from the set a few times in Evening Evergreen.  Serious – how pretty is that flower!?? 🙂

I added a Genial Gem then used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to an Evening Evergreen mat and into the Petal Pink card base and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more of the Elegantly Said flowers in Evening Evergreen on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Butterfly Brilliance is…brilliant!!  And the bundled and gorgeous Brilliant Wings just makes it like a thousand times more amazing!  I am loving the beautiful sentiments and decorative images (that FLOWER!!) in the new Elegantly Said stamp set, too – and know you’re going to love it, too, when you get your hands on it in May!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Playful Timeless Tropical Birthday Card with Video Tutorial

Good morning!  It’s Weekend-Eve!  Whoo-hoo!  Hope your plans are all made and that you’re going to be doing something fun! 🙂  I’ll be attending our virtual “On Tour” Event in the morning and then it’ll be out to the garden!!  Unless it’s raining.  Then that second part might have to adjust.  Flexibility is key!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube Live, I appreciate you spending part of your day with me.  If not – but you’d like to take a peek at the replay, here ’tis on YouTube!

For this one – a slimline card – I used a few goodies that are carrying over in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog – the Timeless Tropical stamp set with the coordinating In The Tropics die set.  Plus – check out the Playful Alphabet dies sentiment!  Take a look-see:

The layout was inspired by this week’s Sunday Stamps challenge.

And the tropical theme….from the Cupcake Inspiration photo challenge!

I started with a piece of the wonderful In Good Taste DSP  (Yes! This IS carrying over into the next catalog – whoohooo!!!) that I matted on Soft Suede for the card front.

Next, I matted a piece of Very Vanilla on Soft Suede and adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I used the Playful Alphabet dies to cut the letters from a second (darker) piece of In Good Taste.  Then I adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On Very Vanilla, I stamped the smaller flower from Timeless Tropical in Poppy Parade and two leaves in Old Olive.  I used a Blender Pen to “pull” ink to shade the flowers and leaves – then cut them out with their In The Tropics dies.

I also used a couple of the In The Tropics dies from Old Olive and Mossy Meadow card stock.  Then it was time to adhere the leaves to the card front – using Liquid Glue.  I popped the flowers on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a few more small flowers from Mango Melody and adhered them with Liquid Glue.

I added some Opal Rounds to the middle of the stamped flowers and some Pearl Basic Jewels that I’d colored with my Dark Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blend to the middle of the small die cut flowers – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I stamped the small Timeless Tropical flower in Poppy Parade in the corner of a Very Vanilla panel.  I stamped the flower onto a sticky note and fussy cut it to make a mask – and placed that over the stamped flower.  Then I stamped the leaf image in Old Olive.  I removed the mask and “pulled” the ink with my Blender Pen.  I added an Opal Round to the middle of the flower, then added a sentiment from Timeless Tropical in Soft Suede.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Soft Suede mat and into my Old Olive card base – popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

I pulled out a basic business-sized envelope and added the Timeless Tropical flower and leaves on the front…

…and a little more In Good Taste DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Are you ready to head to the tropics for a birthday celebration now?  Timeless Tropical and the In The Tropics die set will make you crave sand and palm trees!  And the Playful Alphabet dies gives you virtually unlimited sentiment possibilities!  In Good Taste – THANK YOU Stampin’ Up! for carrying this gorgeous DSP to the next Catalog!!

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Prized Peony Garden Love & Thanks for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is For the Girls/Ladies!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I thought “pretty flowers” when I saw the challenge – and the Prized Peony Bundle came to mind right away!  I combined it with some lovely Peony Garden DSP.  Take a look-see:

I used the sketch side of the FUSION challenge for my layout on this one.

The Just Add Ink challenge fits perfectly.  It’s pretty obvious which two I chose!

Finally, the Tic-Tac-Toe challenge comes into play. I used Pattern Paper – Free – Embellishment (although why the heck I didn’t add a new Bee Trinket is beyond me! 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️)

I started with a piece of Gray Granite paper from the Peony Garden DSP that I matted on Gray Granite for the card front.

Next up, I took a second – flower-strewn piece – and cut the scalloped edge with the die in the Peony Die set.  Then I adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

I wrapped some Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim twice around the panel, securing it in the back with Glue Dots.

I stamped the large Prized Peony image in Gray Granite on Basic White, then I cut it with the matching die in the Peony Die set.

I colored the flower with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blend and Light Mossy Meadow Blend – using the stamped blending markings in the image – which means it’s super easy to color!

I popped the flower onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the Prized Peony sentiment in Gray Granite on a piece of Petal Pink cardstock and cut it with the next-to-smallest rectangle in the Stitched So Sweetly Die set.

I popped the sentiment over the flower and trim with more Dimensionals.

I tied a simple bow using two pieces of the Mossy Meadow 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

Some Champagne Rhinestones here and there finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped another sentiment from Prized Peony in Gray Granite on a Basic White panel.  Over it, in stamped-off-once Petal Pink, I added the geometric image from the set a few times.  In the corner, I stamped another Prized Peony image and colored it with my Blends.  Then I popped on one more Champagne Rhinestone.  Cuz I could! 😉

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Gray Granite mat and into my Mossy Meadow card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done.

My Basic White Medium Envelope got another Prized Peony flower on the front…

…and more of the Peony Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This gorgeous Prized Peony stamp set and bundled Peony Dies are coming back in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog.  Whoo-hoo!!  BUT – the bundle pricing (10% off!) is GOING AWAY – So…if you don’t have this beauty yet, get it before the current catalog ends on 3 May!  But – the Peony Garden DSP will NOT be back – so…get it right now (and…it’s just $9.20 right now – that’s a 20% savings!)

I hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Curvy Ornate Garden Thanks & Clearance Rack Update!

Good Monday morning, y’all!  Did you have a good weekend?  Even though we didn’t get the fence up and painted, we DID get all the veggies in the ground and our little teesy lavenders transplanted into bigger pots to see if they will….not die! 😉  And Sunday – the weather was so gorgeous it was…amazing!  AND – the pollen count was low enough that we had the windows and doors open all day.  Heaven!

And – not for nuthin! – Stampin’ Up! also announced that there will be a Clearance Rack update tomorrow!  The details are below!

My card today is another try at clean-and-simple.  It’s for a sketch challenge that is all about clean-and-simple, so I really tried to fill the bill!  I used some pretty Ornate Garden Specialty DSP (y’all – this is retiring soon and you can get a pack for just $6.00! – WOW!).  And I brought out the Ornate Thanks and Ornate Style stamp sets (this one is retiring, too!).  Plus…the Curvy Dies played a big part – take a look-see:

And here’s that sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.

I started with a piece of Ornate Garden DSP that I matted on Terracotta Tile cardstock for the card front.

Next, I took a piece of Basic White cardstock and cut it in half with one of the Curvy Dies.

I stampd the fleur-de-do corner image from Ornate Style in Terracotta Tile in two corners and then popped both pieces on with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Using Stampin’ Seal, I adhered a length of Terracotta Tile ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack (this is retiring and you can get this two-roll pack for just $2.80!!).

I stamped an Ornate Thanks sentiment (THIS one is sticking around, y’all!) in Old Olive on a strip of Basic White.  Then I snipped banner ends and popped it over the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals – and the card front was done!

On the inside, I added a second Ornate Thanks sentiment in Old Olive on a piece of Basic White.  Then I stamped the Ornate Style fleur-de-do’s again in Terracotta Tile.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Terracotta Tile mat and into my Old Olive card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Basic White Medium Envelope got more fluer-de-do’s on the front…

…and more of the Ornate Garden DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Isn’t this Ornate Garden DSP pretty, y’all!?  And – at SUCH a great price – be sure you’ve got some in your stash!  We’ll see Ornate Thanks and the Curvy Dies in the next catalog, but…if you love the Ornate Style set (and why WOULDN’T you?!?) – then you need to get it now!  It’ll be gone before you know it!

I hope you like!

If you’d like to recreate this card, all the products and card cuts are listed below!
