Cards - All Occasions

Three CASED Cards from the Catalog with Lights Aglow Suite

The Lights Aglow Suite has just about everything you need to make beautiful Chirstmas cards - two gorgeous bundles, ribbon, special papers and gems - yum!

Tonight I shared three cards with this suite that I CASED (Copy and share everywhere or something like that ha ha) from the catalog. These cards are on page 30 of the Mini Catalog (July-December). The third card has a bit of a twist at the end that might surprise you!

Aren't they pretty?

I really like the effect of using the Diorama Layering Dies to frame the tree on this card:

Lights aglow tree card2

Also, did you notice the gems on the tree? I used the Elegant Faceted Gems to finish decorating the tree.

The second card has a layer of embossed snowflakes behind the sentiment:

The Real Red Mini Ruffled Ribbon adds just the right color accent. 

The third card is really a pocket card/gift card holder. Using kraft paper as the base with an attached belly band, you can slide the pocket in and out of it.  DSP is from the Celebrate Everything DSP pack, which is only available as a hostess item.

Snowflakes are die cut from the gold Glimmer Specialty Paper. The layers on the belly band add dimension and interest to the pocket card.

Slider Gift Card Holders

We all need gift card holders this time of year and this one is so much fun to make and to give!  Thanks to Susan Campfield for sharing this on her YouTube channel.

I also used the Gnomes designer series paper. It's wonderful with the gnome figures, animals and shades of blue and winter! It's retiring, so grab it now while you can! The Fine Sparkle Gems that I used are 60 percent off right now!

Here's a pic of the cards:

Here's a pic of several cards made with the same layout with the Boughs of Holly DSP:

The layout is simple, yet the cards are so pretty!

POP UP CARD AND MORE WITH CHRISTMAS SCOTTIE BUNDLE

I just love the Christmas Scottie Bundle! It's soooo CUTE and makes it so easy to make cute projects!  I have some fun ones for you! You will find a PDF with the supplies and measurements below, as well as a link to the YouTube FB replay.

The first of the three projects is a snack holder - easy peasy origami fold that you can use to dress up a lot of different treats.

Christmas scottie snack holder2

I have a beef stick in this one, but how about a doggie treat for your neighbor or family member that has a dog?

The tag base is die cut with one of the dies from the Celebrations Tags Die Set. The Scottie dog is layered on top, and then a banner with dog talk for "yum" - "woof woof!"

Watch the video tutorial to see how to do this easy origami fold.

The next project is a cute card with blocks of layers show casing DSP (designer series paper). I've used the Sweetest Christmas DSP which is on back order now, but will be available Oct. 24th or around there.

Christmas Scottie green and white card2

I used the Stamp-A-Ratus to stamp the Scottie in the lower right corner. When stamping such a large image it's a good idea to use that tool. Again, will find the measurements for this card in the free PDF link below.

And here is the Pop-Up-Card.  What a fun card to give and to receive!

When the card is opened these two cuties pop up inside!

Fond of Autumn Cards and Tea Light Card

Send some cheer with these lovely cards featuring the Fond of Autumn Bundle. Fall flowers and foliage with sweet sentiments make this bundle a go-to for Fall cards.

I love the die that makes this detailed die cut featured on this card front:

Fond of autumn cajun card2

Then there's the die that cuts the large stamp into four small stamps.  I used one on the card above and two on the card below. These die cuts are from the same large image:

Fond of autumn garden green card 2

The large floral image is shown on the card below (yep, this is the image you can die cut into four pieces).

One Basic Fun Fold, Three Different Layouts with the Season of Chic Bundle

I want to share three different cards with you that are based on one fundamental fun fold. There are pictures for each of the cards and a PDF to download with all of the measurements. You can also watch my YouTube video for more details (link below).

One thing I love about the Season of Chic Bundle is that you can use it for all of the seasons.  The Texture Chic Specialty DSP also includes paper for all of the seasons. I'm showing a Fall, Christmas, and Summer card.

The basic fold is an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" piece of card stock scored on the 8 1/2" side at 4 1/4" and 7"(pictured below).

Basic fun fold 2

For the first card, I am layering the front panels with Texture Chic Specialty DSP and also using one large piece to become the left side of the inside of the card. 

One fun fold pumpkin card 2

The inside looks like this:

The second card is a gift card or cocoa pouch holder. It is created similar to the first card, but horizontally and without the large piece of DSP. Again, find the links to the PDF and video tutorial below.

The third card uses the same base for a z-fold card:

Three Fall Flower Garden Cards

When we think of Fall, we think of pumpkins, gourds and squash, but there are beautiful Fall flowers too!

I created three lovely cards with that in mind that feature Echinacea, Ranunculus and Mums (or daisies) - all beautiful flowers that are glorious in Fall array.

Fall Flower Garden Cards2

Each card features something unique and different.

On the Ranunculas card I used the Water Color Pencils and then blended the colors together with the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Early Espresso Card Base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" and die cut with long Contour Scallop die on end (about 3/4" in).

Gingham Cottage DSP – 3 x 5 ½”; 1 ¾ x 5 ½”(inside)

Crumb Cake for Die Cut Scalloped Rectangle

Very Vanilla – 2 5/8 x 3 7/8 for front stamped piece; 2 ¼ x 5 ½” for inside sentiment piece.

Fall flower garden cards ranunculus2

The card below features a flower bouquet and foliage from the Harvest Dies with the Vintage Bottle Shaker Dome. I also die water colored the flowers with our Water Color Pencils and the Blending Pen.

Measurements for this card:

Basic Black Card Stock 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Gingham Cottage DSP - 5 1/4 x 4"

Scrap piece of Very Vanilla for flowers

Scrap piece of Crumb Cake for grasses

Basic White 5 1/4 x 4" for inside sentiment

Fall flower garden card nature's harvest2

The third card is my favorite. I used the Daisy Garden stamp and Gold Embossing Powder to create this card along with the Distressed Gold Paper to make the pumpkin.

Measurements:

Thick Very Vanilla - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Blackberry Bliss - 5 1/4 x 4"

Make a Kraft Gift Box into a Shaker Box!

Did you know Stampin' Up's Kraft Gift Boxes are in the weekly sale this week? Not only are these boxes sturdy, but they have a beautiful window in them. You can easily turn them into an even more beautiful gift box by making them a shaker gift box! I will show you how.

Here is a picture of the one I made tonight in my live:

Kraft gift box wreath shaker background2

I began by sponging the front with Soft Suede to give it a rustic look. I also did that on this one featuring the Christmas Tree dies from the Christmas Lights Bundle:

Kraft gift box tree shaker2

This is the first one I made with sponging  but no background dsp:

Kraft gift boxes shaker wreath2

And this gift box has the lovely Specialty Vellum in the background.  The beautiful snowflake is die cut using the snowflake die from Twinkling Lights Dies with the Rose paper from the Gold & Rose Metallic Specialty Paper.

Kraft gift boxes shaker snowflake (1)2

When you make this you need a piece of Kraft card stock that is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" and a piece of background paper that is the same size - 5 1/2 x 4 1/4".

Watch the replay of the video here:

Cards with Apple Harvest Stamp Set and Layered Strips Card Base

This card recipe is a great way to use up left over strips of paper in a beautiful way! The strips are layered diagonally on the front of the card base which creates a back drop of color and interest. Other layers include vellum, a Basic White circle and the beautiful stamped image from Apple Harvest Stamp Set. I love a card with lots of layers!

Apple harvest cards FB live22

As you can see, there are two cards.  One is a little more stepped up (the one on the left). I'm not sure which one I like better. How about you?

Here is the simpler card:

Apple harvest card paper strips2

Isn't it pretty? I love how the black embossed sentiment compliments the other colors.

Here is the other card. Extras include white embossed flowers and the Mini Ruffled Ribbon.
