Here's another view of the card from the top:

You can see why it's called a Flying Seagull Fun Fold because it looks like a bird with it's wings spread to fly!

The card is made with two long pieces of cardstock of the same color and one square adhered to the center.  There are also lots of layers on this card - mats for each panel plus two on the back in the center. And then the designer series paper is adhered on top of the panels.  I used Mango Melody for the Mat layers on this card.

Easter Cards with Rejoice in Him Stamp Set and Daffodil Daydream Bundle

Easter is less than a month away, and now is the time to make some cards to send to family and friends.  Last week I shared cards with the Easter Bunny Stamp Set and this week I will show you how to make Easter cards with the Rejoice in Him Stamp Set and Daffodil Daydream Bundle.  I'm also using the Delicate Desert Designer Series paper for all of the cards. 

You can get the kits for these cards (2 of each card) and PDF tutorial for free by placing an order of $35.00 or more in my online store this week using host code HVP3MPM9 at checkout, or use this link to shop: SHOP HERE   If your order is $50.00 or more I will send you a pack of the Irridescent Gems as .a thank you.  If your order is $150.00 or more please don't use the host code so you get the rewards.  Any die cuts that aren't in the Daffodil Die set will be pre-cut for you.  DSP and cardstock will be pre-cut for you, and envelopes are included. This offer is good this week until March 27, 2023.

The first card might be my favorite.  I've embossed a piece of our Vellum Cardstock with white embossing powder and then colored it with Stampin' Blends Markers.  The sentiment is Inked up in Soft Succulent and then I added Clear Embossing Powder over it to give it that shiny raised look.

Soft Succulent is the star color for the second card. The Palm leaves stamp is in the Rejoice in Him Stamp Set and the Daffodil is from the Daffodil Daydreams Stamp set. The little bit of Daffodil Delight color on the flower stands out on this monotone card. The tag is die cut from the Fancy Sentiments Dies.

The third card has the beautiful die cuts that make the gorgeous Daffodil. This card has a layer of the     paper that is die cut with one of the Split Textures Dies. Watch my video tutorial to see how to put the daffodil together.

All-Occasion Cards with the Easter Bunny Stamp Set

Here in the Northeast it sure feels like the looong winter. More snow, high winds, and cold are on the way! How about a little springtime? How about some all-occasion cards with the Easter Bunny stamp set? Not only can you use this set for Easter cards, but it makes adorable baby cards, birthday cards, or just a "hi." 


I paired these cards with the Country Gingham Designer Series Paper.  It gives the cards a beautiful country look! 

This first card is a baby card. I've used the red gingham patterend paper for one of the layers and then added touches of it to the rabbit. It's kind of retro:

The sentiment is from the Celebrating You Stamp Set.

The second card is an Easter Card. I've used the Framed Florets Dies on the front to show off that cute bunny.

I love the soft pastel gingham colors together.

This card is another baby card. The Basic White layer is embossed with the Cane Weave Embossing Folder and then I brushed Crumb Cake Ink on it with one of the small blending brushes.  The large circle and tag also have Crumb Cake Ink brushed on them.

This last card is so cute with touches of Petal Pink and So Saffron. It's a birthday card that I can't wait to give ot a friend!

I think something bright and cheerful is needed for a thank you this month, after all, it's almost Springtime, but it's still cold, windy, and snowing! How about flitting bright butterflies even if they are paper. I'm using Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper and Build a Butterfly Dies for my thank you cards.

Best butterflies thank you edited

I traced the die cut butterfly wings on Parakeet Party Cardstock and then cut it out to layer behind the wings to add some bright popping color.  I added a couple of Parkeet Party Dots along the top of the butterfly. The "Clothesline" of paper banners is held with Night of Navy Bordered Ribbon topped off with a piece of Pumpkin Pie Twine from the Three Twine Combo Pack.  The "Thank You" from Go-To Greetings is stamped in Starry Sky Ink.

The banners are 3 1/4" x 1" (2) and 3 1/4" x 1 1/4" (2).

The dsp for the second card has touches of Orchid Oasis (my favorite SU color)! I love the little blossoms that are punched with the  Petal Park Builder Punch.

There's such a wide variety of colors in this designer series paper. The third card features touches of Evening Evergreen and Crumb Cake with the Stitched Crumb Cake Ribbon. I colored some of the gems with my Mossy Meadow Stampin' Blend Marker to coordinate with the colors.  I love this birthday sentiment:

And then the Fun Fold Accordian Card has a different color palette! Petal Pink, Calypso Coral and touches of Daffodil Delight. I used the Country Gingham Designer Series paper with the Fancy Flora Designer Series Paper for this card. I love the die cut designs on the tag.  This is done with a small die you can add to the tag die when you cut it.

I think you will just love this new bundle Irresitible Blooms and the Coordinating Designer Series Paper - Hello Irresistible! This set has beautiful floral images and font and some unique dies! It's being released as one of the first new products in Stampin' Ups! online exclusinve products.  These products will be released online only throughout the year and not in a catalog. You can view them here - Download Online exclusives march 2023

With this first card I show how to make a 3D rose using three stamped images of the large bloom.  It also has the long ribbon-like die cut on the left side. I'm thinking of it as a trellis. The Hello Irresistible Designer Series Paper actually has leaves and roses that you can die cut out of the paper to use.  The roses are stamped but the leaves are fromt he designer series paper.

This second card features some of the DSP with beautiful floral rose images on it. (It's soooo easy to make beautiful cards with this DSP!)

Touches of White And Crumb Cake enhance the card. The tags are cut with the Tailored Tags Dies and the white leaves are cut with dies from the set.

The third card features a couple of the blooms from the designer series paper, crinkle ribbon and an embossed "hello" on black cardstock.

I love the deisgner series paper on the card base - ooo la la!
