Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card

I absolutely love this Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms Falling leaves card, it’s just one of those that makes my heart happy!

Start with a Mint Macaron cardstock cut at 11″ x 4.25″.  Score and fold at 5.5″ to create a portrait card.  Cut the Very Vanilla layer at 5.25″ x 4″. Stamp your leaves onto this layer. I like to start with the lightest color in triple step stamping.  For the single leaves in between I used the two lightest colors and stamped off first! See the video tutorial below!

Once the stamping is done wrap the vanilla ribbon around and attach to the base.  Stamp the sentiment onto Very Vanilla and punch out.  Punch out another piece in Mint and cut that one in half lengthwise to create a frame.  Pop up and add a knot.  Remember, make the envelope pretty!

Stampin’Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card

Stampin'Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card

This Stampin’Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card is super easy to create.  And using a stamp set like Bunch of Blossoms works particularly well for this!

Probably one of the easiest ways to create this layered look is to start with a bottom layer of Cardstock (or DSP) cut at 5.5″ x 4.25″.  And, the next layer would be the stamping layer cut at 5.25″ x 4″, followed by another layer of the same cardstock (or DSP) cut at 4.5″ x 3.25″.  The 4th layer is the stamping layer cut at 4.25″ x 3″, then another layer of Cardstock (or DSP) cut at 3.5″ x 2.25″.  Also, the last stamping layer is cut at 3.25″ x 2″.

Finally, take the three stamping layers (5.25″ x 4″, 4.25″ x 3″, and 2.25″ x 2″ and use a temporary adhesive to layer them evenly to do the stamping. Remember, bold images really help to hold the design together.

Assembling the Stampin’Up! Triple Layer Stamping technique friend card

After the stamping is done take each stamped layer and attach it to the cardstock (or DSP) layer that is .25″ larger.  Finally, you will end up with 3 stamped layers with a border.  Finally put dimensionals on the back of each layer if desired and use ribbon and a knot to embellish.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Stampin'Up! Bunch of Blossoms pretty fish card

I simply love this Stampin’Up! Bunch of Blossoms pretty fish card using the emerald envy Moroccan DSP for the background.  The fish are popped up for added dimension!

This stamp set ended up being perfect for an aquatic themed card.  The flower petals make great coral along the bottom.  Mix leaves and flowers in Orange and punch out for a perfect fish.  And the dots for the center of flowers make great bubbles… lol…   I added some googly eyes for fun!

Start with an A2 cardbase in very vanilla cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold at 4.25″.  Cut a piece of the Emerald Envy Moroccan DSP at 5.5″ x 4.25″ and attach the the front.  The second very vanilla layer of cardstock is cut at approximately 5″ x 3.75″.

Stampin'Up! Rad Dad Build it Framelits card

This Stampin’Up! Rad Dad Build it Framelits card uses the super awesome Urban Underground Designer Series Paper.  Love it!  We designed a series of cards around this wonderful paper!

For this masculine card I started with a basic A2 card base in Smokey Slate cardstock.  Then embossed a layer of Basic Gay cut at 4″ x 5.25″ using the Hexagon Dynamic embossing folder.  Next I cut a piece of the DSP at 2.25″ x 4″ and attached the bottom.

I absolutely loved making the tools with the Build it Framelits and included a short video on how I added some extra definition to the tools to add dimension.

Stampin'Up! Perfectly Wrapped Project Kit

Here’s a view of all the parts, you can see how much is actually pre-done for you!  This makes stamping and assembly a breeze!  I really love almost all the Stampin’Up! kits and after putting this one together I absolutely love it!!

I don’t do very many kit videos, however, this one allowed me to show some tips and ideas that I wanted to share.  Think using a quilling tool for wrapping the center flower strip with ease!  Also I show a way to make the small clear treat boxes work with a removable strip of paper instead of being attached directly to the box!  On the video I also show alternative stamp sets to use.

And here is the video:

Because this covers all four projects inside the kit the video is a bit longer than I normally like to do.  However I wanted to show some tips and alternative ideas that I used 🙂  I love the  project kits from Stampin’Up! they are beautiful and make creating so easy!!

Stampin'Up! Hey Chick Twist & Pop Sale A Bration card

I love this Stampin’Up! Hey Chick Twist & Pop Sale A Bration card!  I made a couple changes to make the card easier to make for me.  Hope this is helpful to someone else too!!

Stampin'Up! Hey Chick Twist & Pop Sale A Bration card 2

Here is the inside of the Stampin’Up! Hey Chick Twist & Pop Sale A Bration card.

Start with an 8.5″ x 10.75″ piece of cardstock.  Score along the short side at 2.25″, 4.25″, and 6.25″.  Turn paper 1/4 turn and score along the long side at 3 7/8″, 5 3/8″, and 6 7/8″.  Cut away the outside 4 rectangles.  Using a bonefolder to hold your center point fold the left arm over at an angle matching up score lines.  Do the same on the other arm.  

To create the center pop up section start with a 2.75″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.  Score at 2.75″, 5.5″, and 8.25″.  This creates the four panels.  Cut out 4 pieces of cardstock cut at 2.5″ x 2.5″ to create the stamped focal points.

See the video to see how I attached the arms to the pop out center and created the liner for the inside designer series paper.
