Sale-a-bration ends tomorrow – Monday Feb 28th. You don’t want to miss out on receiving some great FREE products just for shopping. Check out the SAB catalogue (you can find the link on the side bar) or contact me directly today.

This whole card was created using the Friendly Hello Sale-a-bration bundle. It is free with a $120 purchase. The beautiful DSP coordinates fabulously with the stamp set. The image was coloured with our Stampin’ Blends.

Friendly Hello- SAB stamp set and DSP bundle FREE with $120cdn purchase
Misty Moonlight Blends to colour the bird ( and ink for the sentiment) are retiring soon.

Here is a view of the card from above to give you a sense of how to attach it all. The main piece of DSP is 5-1/4″ X 11″, scored at 1-3/4″, 3-1/2″, 5-1/4″ and 7″. Then fold it like an accordion and attach it to the card base. The front piece of cardstock is 3-1/2″ X7″, scored at 3-1/2″.

To learn all the details of this fancy fold and to see how the inside of this card gets decorated, watch my video below.

New Horizons DSP Cards

This week I am featuring the absolutely stunning and versatile New Horizons 6X6 DSP. This paper really does steal the show – just add a sentiment and you have a gorgeous card in a jiffy!

I embossed a sentiment from the FREE SAB Stamp Set – Special Moments on a label created using the soon to be released Waves Dies. To add some interest to the cardstock on the card front I used blending brushes and a mask to add a bit of subtle colour on colour design.

I even used the mask to decorate the inside of the card and the envelope. To see how I created this card watch my video below.

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.


Versamark Pad
$13.00
Paper Trimmer
$34.00

If you need a bit more of a visual about how to put this card together – you can check out my video of this butterfly card being created (it is a different stamp set, but the same layout).

Right now there are so many perks to ordering. You get SAB rewards (free items for every $60 or $120 cdn you spend), AND for any order over $65cdn I am also emailing out an amazing 28 card Tutorial Bundle. Just use the host code below.

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.
