Celebrate Sunflowers Double Pocket Card

Every Wednesday morning I go live on FB and You Tube to create something using the Stampin’ Up! product that I am featuring that week. Today I focused on the beautiful Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and Sunflower Dies. The base of the card is made from the Heart & Home 12X12 DSP found in the Stampin’ Up! Jan – June 2022 Mini Catalogue.

The card base is actually made of DSP and is folded in such a way that it creates a sturdy card with 2 pockets. I put a Tailor Made Tag in the front pouch and plan to use the inside one for a gift card.

Check out my video below to find out how I created this Double Pocket Card. I learned this fold from a 2012 Patty Bennett video – this fold is an oldie, but a goodie. I also have a supply list below.

If you enjoyed this video, please leave a comment below and share the video with fellow stampers. Thanks!

Below is the full list of supplies I used:

**NOTE the 2021-2023 In Color Shimmer Vellum is on sale for $13 CDN and is retiring May 2nd, 2022! Grab this and other retiring items ASAP!

Paper Pumpkin – April 2022 – Change is Beautiful

The April Paper Pumpkin is all about celebrating change – whether that is graduation, new baby, new job, weight loss etc… We have all those awkward and exciting moments of change in our lives that deserve some recognition or maybe even some encouraging words to get through the tough parts. These cards are perfect for these occasions. Check out my video below and see my 3 (and a half) alternatives below.

Here are the 3 original kit cards – 2 of them pull open in a fun Z fold.

My first two alternatives use one of the kit card bases added onto some Thick Basic White Cardstock to create two new cards. I cut the front layers using the largest Stitched Rectangle shape – but you can also just trim it down to 4 X 5-1/4″.

My last alternative card(s) also use a Thick Basic White cardstock base and some fun repetitive stamping to create a black and white background.

This card uses the colourful butterfly from the kit.
When you run out of big butterflies – you can stamp the butterfly from the kit stamp set onto a circle and sponge the edges to make it pop.

I hope you enjoyed those cards – I’d love to see your alternative creations. Feel free to post them in the comments of this blog or in the video comments. Don’t forget to subscribe to my You Tube channel so you can catch me live next month.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge # 387 – Colour Challenge

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #387 is a gorgeous Colour Challenge. Take a look at all the calm, cool cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

As soon as I saw this colour combo I thought of the fantastic Waves of Inspiration stamp set that Stampin’ Up! just released. I paired it up with the limited time only Waves of the Ocean 12X12 DSP and since the beautiful Waves Rhinestones are sold out – I used my dark Bermuda Bay Stampin’ Blends to colour some of our Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

I love the way those coloured rhinestones sparkle on the card front.

Although you can find the Waves of Inspiration stamp set in our up coming Annual catalogue – the DSP is limited edition and will be going away on May 2nd! Make sure to grab yours now!

You can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.

Here are the products I used (except for the not yet released Stylish Shapes Dies – 159183)

I have also created a handy printable recipe card for you.

When you use my host code on an order over $65 I will also send you the link to this fabulous 35 card Tutorial Bundle as a thank you!
