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:

March 2022 Online Workshop Cards

This month for my FREE Online Workshop I am playing around with a fun technique I learned from watching Melody Hyde.

It is a way to use decorative masks with a water spritzer to add some detail to solid stamps. So fun! Grab some ink, decorative masks, water spritzer and paper towel and start creating with me.

This weekend only ( until Monday, March 14 – 5pm pacific time) I am offering a door prize draw and ordering special. If you live in Canada and place a $60 order using my host code you will also receive the make’n’take packet to make these 3 cards and a free pack of spritzers. Shop here: https://www.stampinup.ca?hostcode=RA9VCDQ9

My door prize draw to win these 3 cards that I created will take place Monday evening. Enter here!

I created 3 different cards using this fun technique.

For the first two I stamped solid images using the Hello Beautiful stamps.

For the Daffodil Delight card I created a template using the hexagons from the Beautiful Shapes dies then applied my ink pad directly to the card layer.

Once I had my solid images stamped, I cover the layer with a decorative mask, spritzed with water, dabbed off the excess with a paper towel and set aside to dry.

The key to this technique is using Shimmery White Paper instead of regular card stock. Watch my video below to see how I spritzed the layers to achieve the fun patterns.

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

The dimensions for the card pieces are:

Thick Basic White card base – 5-1/2″ X 8-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″

Shimmery White Cardstock – 4-1/2″ X 3-1/2″

Basic Black Cardstock – size dependent on the label you will be die cutting

Here is the full list of supplies I used:


I have another perk to ordering with me in the month of March – any order over $65cdn, I am also emailing out an amazing 37 card Tutorial Bundle. Just use the host code below.

The Hello Beautiful bundle pairs nicely with our Savings in Bloom promotion as well.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge #381 – Colour Challenge

This week’s Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge is an awesome Colour Challenge. Take a look at all the beautiful cards created by our design team and then join the challenge.

I used the Flowering Tulips Bundle and a great gift card holder design by Erica Cerwin.

To create the basic card base I used Petal Pink Cardstock: 5-1/2″ X 11″, score the long side at 3-3/8″ from each end, then cut out the top corners leaving a 3″ tall door at the bottom.

Next I die cut the tulip petals out of Petal Pink and Basic White cardstock and used a Blending Brush to add Pumpkin Pie Ink to the flowers.

I put the tulip petal pieces together using Dimensionals and Mini Glue Dots. I stamped some stems using Soft Sea Foam on a 2″ X 3-1/4″ piece of Basic White cardstock and attached the tulips above them.

The tulips and the sentiment were attached to the front flap using Dimensionals. The Basic White rectangle, DSP layer and the blank cardstock to write on were attached with Tear and Tape afterwards so they could be lined up to create a border around the tulips.

When I attached the cloud layer I used Tear and Tape around the edges only to create a pocket for a gift card.

The finished card fits nicely in a regular Medium Basic White Envelope and perfectly hides the gift card inside.

All of the supplies I used are listed below. You can place an order by contacting me directly or clicking on the image(s) below.

Paper Trimmer

Catching Butterflies – Sale-a-bration Gift Card Holder

Sale-a-bration is the BEST time of year since you can earn FREE stamp sets and Designer Series Paper ( DSP) with every purchase of $60CAD (subtotal). This season the selection of stamps and DSP are sooo cute!

Today I created using the FREE sale-a-bration item Catching Butterflies stamp set.

Here are the dimensions of the materials I used. See the video for exactly how to cut and assemble.

Pool Party Cardstock: 5-1/2″ X 11″, score the long side at 3-3/8″ from each end. (then see video for how to cut the barn doors)

Pool Party Stitched Rectangle : 3″ X 4-3/8″

Pool Party pocket: 4″ X 3″ (die cut with basic borders clouds)

Heart & Home DSP (woodgrain): 4″ X 5-1/4″

Heart & Home DSP (green leaves): (x2) 2-3/4″ X 3-1/8″

Basic White Stitched Rectangles: (X2) 2-1/4″ X 3-5/8″

Basic White scrap to stamp girl with net

The Butterfly layer and the girl were attached to the front flap using Dimensionals. The Pool party REctangle and the sentiment layer were attached with Tear and Tape afterwards so they could be lined up to create a border aroudn the girl and butterflies.

When I attached the cloud layer I used Tear and Tape around the edges only to create a pocket for a gift card.

The finished card fits nicely in a regular Medium Basic White Envelope and perfectly hides the gift card inside.

Christmas Season – Gift Card Holders

This week I am featuring different gift card holders. I love this one since it uses DSP and is so quick and easy to make.

This design can also be easily modified for any time of the year. I love these for Teacher thank you gifts and teen birthdays.

Each gift card is created using a 4″ X 11″ piece of DSP, scored at 3″, 6″, 9″. Then you round the small end to create a nice flap.

Add tear and tape to sides of the end piece that is 3″. Then cut out the card slot and glue the end shut.

Add a piece of white cardstock inside to write on.

Next, fold it all closed, wrap a strip of coordinating 3/4″ X 8-1/2″ cardstock around the closed DSP and tape it together. Finally decorate the cardstock strip.

To see exactly how I created these – checkout the video below.

West Coast Creators Blog Hop – October 2021

It’s the 14th of the month – time for another West Coast Creators Blog Hop!  This one features fun folds!!  Hop around see all the amazing cards created by our team members!  Leave a little love and then come back to see us again on the 14th next month!

My card uses a fold whose name I don’t even know. Here are a few photos to help explain how I folded it though.

Start with a regular card, 8-1/2″ X 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″. The flip it over and score again at 2-1/8″ so that it folds in the opposite direction.

Put a liner inside if you are going to have one and then close the card and hole punch through both (or all 3 layers) using the round bit on the Trio Punch.

It will look like this – punched all the way through.

Next you want to add a piece of DSP – cut at 2″ X 5-1/4″ – right along the center fold line.

Next attach the ribbon by running it through the holes on the closed card.

Then tie the ribbon around the front and back the card – creating a bow on the right hand side.

Next, create a piece to go on the front ( whatever design you want – I used the Frosted Gingerbread bundle to create mine in Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape). The inside will look like this after you attach the front panel over top of the ribbon and DSP.

That is the finished card! Have fun making your own creations with this fold!

Live in Canada, don’t have a demonstrator? Contact me to get a catalogue or find out why right now is the best time to join our team. Here is a full list of supplies I used to create his card, you can add these directly to your Starter Kit. You can also click to order items or contact me directly if you would like to grab a few items.
