Simple Expressions Cards

I hope you enjoyed seeing the new Expressions In Ink products and the fun card I shared on Wednesday. Today I’m sharing some super simple cards that I made with four of the patterned papers in this Expressions in Ink designer paper pack, images from the Create With Friends Stamp Set, and some 2021-23 In Color Jewels.

Each 12″ x 12″ designer paper can be cut similarly to the one shown below…into three 4″ wide strips. Then you can cut two 4″ x 5-1/4″ layers from each of those, stamp them, and add them to your card bases. 

The Expressions In Ink Designer Paper paired with images from the Create With Friends Stamp Set and some 2021-23 In Color Jewels make it super easy to put together beautiful cards quickly. I’ve created four to share with you. Access more photos, measurements, directions, and a supply list by clicking here. Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And even though all the papers are quite beautiful, only four of the twelve designs in this pack have white space areas like this sheet making them perfect for creating quick and simple cards. (FYI…the paper patterns shown in the online store are slightly different than those on page 131 in the catalog. Those in the catalog show the pattens accurately.) Two of those four designs are back-to-back, though. So you’ll have to pick and choose which side to use. But altogether you can make 24 cards from one pack of this designer paper and still be left with a half pack (six other sheets) to use in other ways.

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

Measurements for each card…

  • Basic White Thick or Basic Black Cardstock
    • 4-1/4” x 11” scored parallel to short side at 5-1/2”
    • 4″ x 5-1/4″ (for the inside if the card base is black)
  • Expressions In Ink Designer Paper
    • 4″ x 5-1/4″

Directions 

  • Stamp the words in two colors onto the designer paper.
  • Add to the folded card base piece using a Dimensional in each corner. 
  • Add the jewels.
  • Add the inside white layer if the card base is black. 

That’s it! Yep…the designer paper is so beautiful, there is no need to add much more if you are in a hurry or just feel like making a quick card or two (or more!). Here are close-ups of the four cards I made.

This pattern is filled a bit more with color than the other three, but there is still space to stamp.

Expressions In Ink Hidden Pop-Up Flap Fold

I saw a fun fold card on Pinterest made by fellow demonstrator, Karin Hobelsberger from Germany. She was sharing it in the A4 size with metric measurements. So I adapted the measurements and came up a version for Letter size cardstock using inches. I shared that version of this card with my Stampers With ART group last month during our Online Team Event. And then afterwards team member, Vicki Spicer shared a link to Dawn Griffith’s version of this with me AND I saw team member, Vy Tran’s version of it with a pop-up piece added! So I made a few improvements.

`I just showed live on YouTube about an hour ago step-by-step directions for creating this Hidden Pop-Up Flap Fold Card using products from the beautiful new Expressions In Ink Suite: Artistically Inked Stamp Set, Artistic Dies and Expressions In Ink 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, 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).

So Cool Bit Popsicle Card

Today is the last day to sign up (or have an active subscription) for Paper Pumpkin so you get in on this month’s May kit (see details below). So I thought I’d share one more card that I put together with some of my leftovers from last month’s So Cool kit.

I added in some cardstock, Rainbow Glimmer Paper, and sequins. And I used a die to make the bite in the popsicle, but a scallop circle punch would work. Isn’t it a fun card?

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

Measurements…

  • Basic White Cardstock
    • 4-1/4″ x 5-7/16″
  • Basic Black Cardstock
    • 2-3/4″ x 11″ scored parallel to the short end at 5-1/2″
  • Rainbow Glimmer Paper
    • Two pieces that are 3/8″ x 5-1/2″

After prepping all your pieces above, die-cut the popsicle with the small scallop circle to create a bite mark.

Wrap the Basic Black around to the back (don’t attach yet), then open the front, position the popsicle stickers adding them only to the white and not the black cardstock. Then pull the black away and trim off the tops of the stickers and set aside.

Wrap the black cardstock around again and attach the back to the back side of the white layer. Open up the card and add the sticker tops so the stickers are a small distance away leaving room for the fold in the black cardstock.

Ice Cream Corner All Star Blog Hop May 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 Ice Cream Corner Suite

I’m pretty passionate about most of Stampin’ Up!’s designer papers. And that’s how I feel about the Ice Cream Corner pack. The images and colors are rich, cheerful and fun. Three of the designs in particular really have been really fun to play with because they were created for the coordinating Ice Cream Builder punch.

After punching several ice cream scoops from these sheets, and then experiencing a bit of loss from seeing wasted space between the areas made for punching, I decided to make some of my own designer paper with Blending Brushes, inks, and water. I punched my scoops and made a card to share with you. Actually, I made a few variations of this card to show a few options.

A few hours ago I shared live on YouTube step-by-step directions for making this special paper and the details for making all the card variations. I messed up a bit while recording that live. And afterwards I re-recorded. So you can either watch the long one with all the mistake, the short one which is much more efficient and covers things I forgot to share in the live, or both so you can get your fill of me! hahaha Watch the first video by clicking here or watch “take two” by clicking here (or you can just click on either of these images below if you are already on my blog post). Then 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.

Video one – the LIVE one…

Video two – the re-recorded one with less mistakes…

I hope you enjoyed what I shared. Below are measurements, 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).

Come see what I share on my blog… #stampyourartout - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Today I’m sharing some simple cards I put together with the new Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack. They were super easy and quick to make when I paired the supplies in this pack with the Assorted Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. I made ten 3″ x 4″ cards and still have LOTS of pieces left in this pack.

The Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack. Perfect for memory keeping…fits into Photo Pocket Pages but also works well for traditional scrapbook pages. Perfect for card making, too…simply layer onto any of card bases from Memories & More Cards & Envelopes packs. - 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.

These are the first four. I didn’t do anything fancy to the envelopes, because the card layers themselves had such beautiful designs.

Perfect for card making, too…simply layer onto any of card bases from Memories & More Cards & Envelopes packs. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

I stamped a couple sentiment images from the Hand-Penned Petals Stamp Set onto two blank labels in the pack, lifted all the sentiment layers up on Dimensionals, and added some Genial Gems for a bit of sparkle.

Here are the next two. This time I stamped floral images on the envelopes.

I really didn’t do much the the cards. I stamped the word “Thanks” on the green one. But otherwise I only added a couple Genial Gems to each.

I went a little further with these next two, because I stamped the insides of the cards.

Are you giggling. I know, right? These cards are NOT any more difficult. In fact I did nothing to the card front layers except add some gems.

In fact, that’s the same story with these last two.

So if you are looking for quick cards (and we are all in need of those when we find ourselves in a time crunch), I highly recommend this Hand-Penned Memories & More Card Pack and the coordinating products I’ve mentioned.

The last couple days were a bit busy here. And I forgot to share the latest Stamp-n-Storage news. My apologies. Yesterday kicked off their SPRING SALE! So if you you are in the market for some craft room organizational products, be sure to click here and begin shopping.

  • 15% OFF Storewide PLUS Free Shipping on orders over $100. (No coupon code needed)
  • Sale starts 6:00am CT, Monday, May 3
  • Sale ends 11:59pm CT, Thursday, May 6

I’ve got a ton of these storage pieces in my crafting space. In fact my latest products are these Blending Brushes holders. I’m in the process of painting them to match my room décor. As with all my other pieces, I’m starting with a couple layers of spray paint to seal them. Since the weather is nice now, I’m able to do so. After the spray paint dries, I’ll be adding the latex paint to get the black and white to match completely.

Stamp-n-Storage has some great options for holding Blending Brushes. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Thanks for stopping by to see what I had to share today.

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 added a layered sentiment piece with Basic White (1-1/4″ x 3-1/2″) and Basic Black Cardstock (1-3/8″ x 3-5/8″), Rhinestones and a stamped sentiment from the kit in Tuxedo Black ink.

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.

I have 16 cards ready to personalize with party information on the inside. Now I just need to set a date and have the boys give me their guest list so we can enjoy and celebrate together outside when school is out.
