Happiest of Birthdays

Happy Saturday!!! I am so happy to share this card with you today. This card was created for a triple purpose. It follows a sketch from the Freshly Made weekly challenge, I created it as part of my Online Workshop ( you can see the full video there and you could win this card and two others by entering my prize draw in my online workshop between now and Monday morning), and the prototype of this card will be sent out to a friend this month for her birthday!❀😊

Below is the full list of supplies to create this card and remember that for every $60 order you place this month you earn a $6 coupon to use in August. In addition if you use my host code (A2FBP9W9) before Monday morning I will also send you the card paper bits and embellishments to create the 3 cards I made in my online workshop today.

Nothing Better Than

I created this card as a thank you to my teaching partner. We have worked together for 15 years at two different schools and through many life events. She is the best partner and great to team teach with when we get the opportunity. She is perhaps even better than cocktails because I don’t get a hangover the next day after teaching with her. πŸ™‚

This stamp and die set is actually offered as a bundle at 10% off the individual pricing. You can view it on pg. 91 of the Annual Stampin Up! Catalogue. Contact me (leahdixon41@gmail.com) if you need a copy of this catty.

You can view a video of how I made the card on FB or You Tube.

Lovely You catalogue case

Hello everyone!!

It has been a while since I posted – life got hectic with the return to in person school. I finally got a chance to play with some new Stampin Up! products today. The card I created is a case ( with a colour twist) of the Mango Melody and Misty Moonlight card on pg. 22 of the new catalogue.

The Lovely You bundle is a gorgeous stamp set and a very versatile ( 6 in 1) punch. I love being able to layer labels!

To colour the ribbon, I simply took a Dark Calypso Coral Stampin’ Blend and coloured a piece of Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding. This technique is fast, relatively clean, and allows you to literally have ribbon of ANY colour.

If you love this set, grab it now by contacting me to place an order – or you can get it for FREE when you sign up for your own Stampin Up! Starter Kit ( best deal in the catalogue).

Here is a full list of supplies to create this card. If you want to see how I created the whole card you can check out the video on my You Tube channel.

West Coast Creators Blog Hop

Hi! Thanks for hopping by. My name is Leah Dixon and I am an Independent Demonstrator for Stampin’ Up! I am a mom, teacher, and avid crafter. I’m so excited to be a part of the WCC Last Chance Blog Hop!

I chose to create a Pop-out card using one of my favourite stamp sets – Everything Amazing. It is great for birthdays, friendship, graduation and other achievements.

To achieve the pop-out look you can follow these instructions:

1. Card Base: I started with a regular card base 11” x4-¼” and score at the 5-½” mark.
2. Then I cut a window in the front of the card base using Stitched Nested Label dies.
3. Inside Fold: I started with a 10-½” x 4” piece of cardstock. On the 10-½” side, I scored at the 5-¼” and 7-7/8” marks. Then I folded the piece into a Z fold.
4. I stamped a balloon image on the largest section of the inside fold and adhered the Z fold to the inside of the card leaving 1/8” space around all the edges.
5. I stamped the Amazing image and extra words onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with the next smallest Stitched Nested Label die. I then cut another Stitched Nested die using Calypso Coral CS ( in the same size as the origianl die cut and glued my stamped image to this piece.
6. Then I closed the card with the Z fold tucked inside.
7. I put Tear and Tape through the window on the right side and adhered the shape in the window and pressed down on the right side. When the card opens the shape should be adhered to the Z fold.

To decorate the remainder of the card, I stamped the balloon image using Night of Navy on the front of the card, Punched out Balloon Punches using Bonanza Buddies DSP ( I punched two of each balloon so I could have the same DSP deisgn showing inside and outside of the card) and silver thread and embellished with Self-Adhesive Sequins.
