Bloom Where You’re Planted Vertical Z-fold Card

I’m bringing in another Vertical Z-fold card similar to the one I shared last week. I needed more team birthday cards and ran out of the Hand-Penned paper that I was using. So here is my second version that would appeal to maybe a few more people (I could see giving this card to a female OR a male).

  • 2021-23 In Color Shimmer Vellum (Evening Evergreen): Scrap for punching sprig
  • Evening Evergreen Chevron Weave Ribbon: 4-1/2” & 2-1/2”

Directions:

  • Stamp “happy” on small white piece, then emboss & add a small Rhinestone that has been colored with the Dark Cinnamon Cider Blends Marker.
  • Stamp “HAPPY” (with stamped-off/second generation Cinnamon Cider ink) and “birthday” on larger white piece.
  • Fold card base into a Z as shown below. Then add the large white piece, the thinest green leaves designer paper piece, and the brick designer paper piece in that order to the inside area first tucking the punched Sprig under the upper left edge of the brick layer. There will be an overlap of the white & striped piece.
  • Fold the card shut. Line up the 4” x 4” potted plant piece so that it fills the front folded flap & covers the layers underneath.
  • Cut a notch in the end of the smaller ribbon and adhere it to the embossed piece (trim off excess). Attach the other green leaves designer paper piece to the longer ribbon (trim off the excess). Open the card fully and attach this piece under the potted plants section. Close the card and attach the embossed white piece at the top but also tucked under the front flap a bit.
  • Open the card and add a green Holiday Rhinestone to dot the i in birthday.

Spinning Sunshine Rays Birthday Card

The new Give It a Whirl Dies are so much fun! Have you seen them yet? I’ve been inspired by many and have been pinning some of these creations on my 2021-22 Annual Catalog Pinterest board. But I’ve been most inspired by team member, Vy Tran’s spinner card variations. She does a great job making interactive cards! Click here to see her card that led me in the direction of my Spinning Sunshine Rays birthday card that I’ve just put together this weekend.

Shell-ebrating Turtle Z-Fold Card

The new Turtle Friends Stamp Set has some adorable images. I purchased it along with the Turtle Punch, because buying them bundled together saved me 10%. But I didn’t use the punch on today’s card. Take a look at what I came up with.

The new Turtle Friends Stamp Set has so many great images (words, cute turtles, and more). There is even a coordinating punch you can get. I made this adorable “shell-ebrate” birthday card with this set, the Expressions and Ink paper, and the Gold Metallic Specialty paper. Access directions, more photos, measurements, and links to the products so you can make this yourself. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Measurements

  • Early Espresso Cardstock
    • 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored parallel to short side at 1-1/4″ and 4-1/4”
    • 2-1/4″ x 2-7/8″
  • Basic White Cardstock
    • 2-7/8″ x 5-1/4″
    • 2″ x 2-1/2″
  • Pale Papaya Cardstock
    • Scrap for stamping and fussy-cutting large turtle shell
  • Expressions in Ink Designer Paper
    • 2-7/8″ x 5-1/4″
    • 1″ x 5-1/4″
  • Gold Specialty Metallic Specialty Paper
    • 1″ x 5-1/4″
    • 3/8″ x 2″

Directions 

  • Stamp the large turtle onto the small white piece and onto the Pale Papaya scrap. Stamp the shell shaped sentiment inside the shell of the Pale Papaya turtle, then cut it out.
  • Emboss the Pale Papaya shell and the larger gold strip. Adhere the shell to the large, stamped turtle (this is called “paper piecing”).
  • Fold the card base. Add the 1″ wide strips so that the designer paper one is centered in the 1-1/4″ wide section of the Early Espresso card base and the gold one is about 1/8″ away from the right side when the card base is open.
  • Stamp the words and small turtle on the larger white piece, then add to the left of the gold strip so that its left edge is close to (but not touching) the middle score line. You want to be able to fold the card shut, and if the white is too far over, it won’t. You also want to make sure that when the front of the card is folded over that the white piece disappears.

  • Add the larger designer paper so it looks balanced between the designer paper strip and the white piece.
  • Add the small gold strip to the small Early Espresso piece, then add the small white piece. Open the card all the way and add this layered turtle piece with Dimensionals to the card so it’s lined up with the imagery on the larger white piece AND so it’s centered on the 1″ wide designer paper section.
  • Close the card and add the gold pearls.

The new Turtle Friends Stamp Set has so many great images (words, cute turtles, and more). There is even a coordinating punch you can get. I made this adorable “shell-ebrate” birthday card with this set, the Expressions and Ink paper, and the Gold Metallic Specialty paper. Access directions, more photos, measurements, and links to the products so you can make this yourself. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Sand & Sea All Star Blog Hop June 2021

All Star Tutorial Bundle monthly hop - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Welcome to our All Star Tutorial monthly blog hop for the Sand & Sea Suite!

I received an amazing fun fold card from Sara Douglass & Shelli Gardner earlier this month. When I messaged them to thank them, I said it was the most “wowest” card I have ever seen! Seriously…this thing is incredible. (Click here to check it out.) And so of course as an addict to fun fold cards and math, I just had to recreate it (in a slightly more simplified version) and share it with all of you.

So a few hours ago I shared live on YouTube step-by-step directions for creating my version of this card using products from the Sand & Sea Suite: Friends Are Like Seashells Stamp Set, the Seaside Seashells Dies, the Seashells Embossing Folder, the Opal Rounds, and the Sand & Sea Designer Paper. And now I’m sharing that video here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements (sorry there are no metric measurements this time), close-up photos, and a product list for what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel so you can get updates when I share and go live).

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Come see what I share on my blog…www.stampyourartout.com

The gift pouches are super easy to make. All I did was cut my envelopes from the kit in half. Then I trimmed off the sides to open them up.

I filled my sample one with some odd but colorful treats (I was laughing when all I could find in the house was Kool Aid and a pack of Craisins. hahahaha). I guess if I was having a cool treats themed summer party, I’ll probably put a $5 gift card to an ice cream shop and a pack of Pop Rocks in there instead.

Here is what I did to make the invites.

First I stamped the popsicle images all over a piece of cardstock that I colored with multiple ink colors using the Blending Brushes. Click here, click on the video, and then scroll to the 21 minute mark to see how I colored that cardstock and added droplet images. I then fussy cut those popsicle tops.

Next I pulled out my Stamparatus and easily & quickly stamped 16 note cards with two stamp images at the same time.

I added a 1″ x 5″ strip of the envelope liner paper (you can get 4 from each envelope) and a 5″ length of Black Glittered Organdy Ribbon to the bottom of each card front, added a colored popsicle top with Dimensionals, stamped the splatter image in matching ink colors, and added Rhinestones.
