Category: All Occasion, Thinking of you, & Hello cards
The all occasion, thinking of you, & hello cards category is a catch all for those Stampin Up cards that can be very general in scope. This is perfect when you want to create multiple cards and be able to use them for many occasions. This is one of the broadest categories, with good reason. It is so easy to create all occasion cards ahead of time with the idea that when you need a card, it will fit almost any occasion. Even a birthday card can have a cover “hello” sentiment…or a “thinking of you” on your birthday (inside) lol…
Stampin’Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial
I made this Stampin’Up! Coffee Cafe Mini treat bag video tutorial for my 3D swap for Thailand with Stampin’Up! What an amazing experience! Be sure to check out my CreatingForGrace demo FB page for some photos I shared.
I started with the mini treat framelit bag cut in Early Espresso paper and assembled using the Tear & Tape adhesive. This is stronger and holds together 3D items very well. The white cardstock is cut at 2″ x 4″ and stamped using the Timeless Texture stamp set.
Next stamp the cup and lid and use the Coffee Cafe framelits to cut them out. Add the green mini chevron ribbon and attach the stamped white cardstock. Pop up the coffee cup with dimensionals and attach. Use a glue dot and some linen thread to attach the corrugated elements tag.
This Dragonfly Dreams Gold Embossed card was from one of our weekly color challenges. It was quite a mix of colors and the gold just called out for heat embossing! The Dragonfly Dreams stamp set was a great way to get my colors in!
Simply start with a Very vanilla thick cardstock cut for an A2 card, finished size 5.5″ x 4.25″. The Old Olive layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″. and the inside very vanilla layer is cut at 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″. Emboss the top of the card using the Hexagon emboss folder. The inner Old Olive layer is 3.5″ square. And the inner heat embossed Vanilla layer is 3 3/8″ square.
See the video tutorial below for details on heat embossing, and remember to make your envelope pretty!
I had fun making this Stampin’Up! Crafting Forever Gate fold card. Since I really enjoy coloring, and things with depth and dimension, and moving parts… LOL… so the gate fold card was so fun for me to make a card tutorial on. Start with a base of 8.5″ x 5.5″, score and fold 2 1/8″ in from EACH END. the panels on the front are 5.25″ x 1 7/8″. Although I used our Stampin Up watercolor pencils, I did not blend, I just simply shaded using ONLY the pencils. Easy!
This Stampin’Up! Tranquil Tide Enjoy Today card was another from the Eastern Palace series of cards. We always do 5 cards at the live event and then I have been including another 5 projects exclusively available on the PDF instruction sheet.
I started with an A2 landscape card base cut at 5.5″ x 8.5″. Score and fold at 4.25″. I cut about a 2″ width of the Gold and Cream DSP. Just fussy cut along the bottom scallop and use the Tranquil Tide ribbon around the top.
Stamp and die cut the Medallion then add the gold sticker. Stamp the sentiment and die cut the circle. layer this on the medallion. Voila! Just add the Tassel and the knot, easy!
Remember to make your envelope pretty it adds such a great touch!
I love this Colorful Seasons Bundle tent fold card! The bundle is so amazing and has so many possibilities!
I made this as an A2 card size, just start with a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock. Score and fold at 2.75″ and 5.5″ this creates the folds. The very vanilla cardstock layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″ for the inside. and for the card front cut it at 4″ x 2.5″.
The chair and 2 branches are cut using soft suede cardstock. I glued the 2 branches together and covered up the spot with a flower. Cut each flower in vanilla and bermuda bay, layer then attach. Make sure not to glue the branches down to the top half of the card, that way they can stand freely when the tent is open. The tent holds open using a popped up flower.
For my color challenge I chose the Stampin’Up! Jar of Love Kindness card. I thought it was fun to do in the new bright and cheery in colors!
I started with Lemon Lime Twist cardstock cut at 5.5″ x 8.5″, score and fold at 4.25″. Add a layer of Fresh Fig cut at 5.25″ x 4″, and then a layer of white cut at 5″ x 3.75″.
Center and stamp the mason jar in black Momento ink and the flower stems in Lemon Lime Twist. I stamped the pool party layer of the flowers next and then added the Tranquil Tide centers. Finally, sprinkle a few Fresh fig spatters.
Stamp the bow in Fresh Fig and cut out with a framelit. Pop up with a dimensional, and remember to make your envelope pretty!
