Cards

Zany Zebras

Hello and welcome! I am so happy to have had some time to play with my new products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue… especially these Zany Zebras!

Tell me you aren’t smiling about how super cute these little guys are!! With this stamp set you can create fun birthday cards very easily. Today I have three to share with you!

Here are my Zany Zebras creations

Zany Zebra Birthday Card

This card uses all three of the zebra images. Each of them is stamped in a 1.5″ square and matted together to look like a photo booth print. I added the different colours with the use of my Watercolor Pencils and had some fun matching the Zebras to the patterned paper. After all who says a Zebra can’t have different coloured stripes?!?

The Designer Series Paper that I used on all three of these cards is from the Playing With Patterns 6″x6″ pack. The patterns, colours and design of these papers just seem so perfect for birthday cards.

Secondly I made this card showing the zebras wearing the adorable little party hats!! Using a combination of three sentiment stamps I created a great birthday message on the front of the card. These Zebras are ready to party and send some birthday wishes to your loved ones! These little guys are coloured in using my Stampin’ Blends and this time I stayed a little more traditional with the colour.

The last card I created to share with you came together seamlessly. Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Crushed Curry make a great colour combination! I used the Tasteful Labels dies and dimensionals to layer up the Birthday Greeting. Stamped the sole Zany Zebra in Night of Navy and centered the whole thing atop of the playful DSP.

I had a blast designing these cards and can not wait to send them to family and friends!

Cards, My Creations

Flowers For Every Season

Hello and welcome! Today I am sharing with you the beautiful Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue. This stunning 6″ x 6″ paper collection has floral imagery for all four seasons and is super fun to use.

Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper by Stampin' Up!

One of the things that I love most about this paper is that you don’t need to add a lot to make a very pretty card. Today I created two cards both using the same layout but swapping out the DSP and cardstock. This simple card design was seen on a fellow Demonstrator’s site thepaperpapillion.com and I fell in love with it.

I have posted a tutorial on making this card on my YouTube Channel and will include the steps and measurements here for you as well.

Let’s Make the Card

To begin you’ll need a Just Jade card base cut at 4-1/4″ x 11″ and scored in half at 5-1/2″. Next have a piece of Misty Moonlight cardstock cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″. Emboss this piece using the Ornate Floral 3D Embossing Folder. This layer can be adhered directly on to your card base.

Next you will need a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 3-1/2″ x 4-1/4″ and three strips of DSP each 4″ x 1″.

Wrap a piece of Just Jade gingham ribbon around and attach it to the back of the Whisper White cardstock. Next you will attach this piece to the embossed layer using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Flowers For Every Season Designer series paper Stampin' Up!

Tie bows and attach the ribbon layers as explained in the video tutorial. I used the So Sentimental stamp set and the Sending Healing Hugs greeting for my card. This is stamped with Misty Moonlight ink onto a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock. Using the Label Me Lovely punch I cut it out and adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I also decorated the inside of the card to add a bit of fun in there too. I did this with a layers of cardstock; Misty Moonlight 4″ x 5-1/4″ and Whisper White 3-3/4″ x 5″. Then added a strip of coordinating DSP cut at 1″ x 3-3/4″.

Like I said before, I love this simple layout and the Flowers For Every Season DSP.
