Cat Silhouette Sympathy Card

I’ve been in need of sympathy cards for friends and family members who have lost their cats lately. It’s so sad to lose loved ones. Pets have such a special place in our hearts.

So I started creating a few days ago and came up with a layout that is simple and sweet using a silhouette of a cat. I feel that using a black silhouette and refraining from using the more detailed cat stamp image is best for a sympathy card, because one can imagine their own cat within that shape. Plus I feel like the silhouette sort of symbolizes a feline friend that has passed on.

Rather than writing out all the details & directions for this card design, I shared that information in this Facebook Live broadcast. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and products list below (for the card I demonstrated), scroll through the close-up photos of all three versions of this card, and then let me know if you have any questions.

I hope you enjoyed this video! Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate the card I demonstrated.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” scored at 4-1/4” and folded in half
  • Botanical Butterfly Designer Paper (FREE SAB pick)
    • 2-3/4” x 4”
  • Basic Black Cardstock

Here are close-up photos of the Calypso Coral card.

Garden Impressions Birthday Cards

I needed to make a bunch of Springtime birthday cards and realized I had a TON of this beautiful Garden Impressions 6×6 designer paper on hand. So I started cutting into it and came up with 3 designs that I’m excited to share with you today.

I made some colorful and festive birthday cards with the Garden Impressions designer paper, images from the Perennial Birthday stamp set, sequins, and some fun colors from the 2018-20 In Color collection. Click here for directions, more photos, measurments, and a complete list of Stampin’ Up!® products linked to where you can find them in my online store. #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The designer paper includes colors from the 2018-20 In Color Collection, so I was able to match the ribbons on all three layouts.

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

Measurements…

  • Base Color Cardstock:
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
  • Garden Impressions Designer Paper:
    • 3″ (or 2-1/2″ on the blue card to accommodate the larger tag) x 5-1/2″
    • 2-3/4″ x 1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″
  • Sparkle Glimmer Paper:
    • 5-1/2″ x 1/2″
    • 2-3/4″ x 1/2″
  • Ribbon:
    • 7″

Directions…

  • Adhere designer paper to glimmer paper using Glue Dots so that the glimmer paper shows just slightly. Then use SNAIL Adhesive to add the larger designer paper/glimmer paper combo to the front of the card and the smaller designer paper/glimmer paper combo to the 2-3/4″ x 4-1/4″ Whisper White Cardstock.
  • Attach the Whisper White layer to the inside of the card.
  • Stamp the sentiments: on the Whisper White layer inside and on the tag.
  • Insert the brad and add the tag to the front of the card using Dimensionals.
  • Tie a small bow and add it to the front of the card over the tag using a Glue Dot.
  • Then add sequins. (The Gingham Gala Sequins are adhesive-backed, but the Iridescent are not. So those would need to be added with Fine Tip Glue.)

I used the larger tag for this blue card, so I made the designer paper on the front a little narrower. I think this one is my favorite.

This was the first card I made, and then I got smart and used the adhesive backed sequins for most of my other cards. But I have to say that the colors in the Iridescent Sequins coordinate better with the paper.

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop March 2019: Pop Out Gate-Fold

Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Welcome to the March 2019 Greek Isles Achievers Blog Hop! Follow along and check out all the other blogs in the hop (click on the names of other participants in the list below my signature) so you can see some fabulous cards and projects created by other demonstrators who also earned the Stampin’ Up!® Greek Isles incentive trip that will take place this July 2019. (I’m so excited! This is my dream trip come true!!) This month’s hop features 2019 Sale-a-Bration and Occasions Catalog products.

I’ve been playing around with pop out gate-fold cards lately (see what I shared March 8 and February 6). And I came up with one more that I think you’ll enjoy.

The belly band holds it shut. When you take off the band and open it up in the middle, the back panel pops forward to reveal to focal point of the design.

I loved the boldness of the Lovely Lipstick and the Flirty Flamingo colors together in the striped pattern of the All My Love Designer Paper and knew those colors would look yummy together as frosting on a cake. So I paired up the All My Love Designer Paper with images from the Piece of Cake Stamp Set to create this fun wedding (or anniversary) card.

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

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and then at 2-3/4″ from each end
    • Scrap for punching out 2″ Circle piece
    • Scrap for stamping and punching out 1-1/4″ Circle piece
    • Scrap for punching two 3/4″ Circles
  • Flirty Flamingo Cardstock:
    • Scrap for stamping and punching out 2″ Circle piece
    • Scrap for stamping and punching out cake
  • Lovely Lipstick Cardstock:
    • Scrap for punching out Starburst piece
    • Scrap for punching out 1-3/8″ Scallop Circle piece
  • Silver Foil Sheets:
    • Scrap for punching out Starburst piece
    • Scrap for punching out cake plate piece
    • 12″ x 1-1/8″ strip
  • All My Love Designer Paper:
    • Lovely Lipstick stripes on Flirty Flamingo pattern: 1″ x 12″
    • Lovely Lipstick stripes on Flirty Flamingo pattern: Two pieces cut to 2-1/2″ x 4″
    • Tiny pink and white hearts pattern: Two pieces cut to 2-1/2″ x 4″

Directions…

  • After preparing all pieces above (cutting, scoring, stamping, punching, etc.), stamp inside message with Lovely Lipstick ink about 1″ from the top and centered.
  • Adhere 2-1/2″ x 4″ designer paper layers to the outer inside flaps and the front of the card (the opposite side of the outer inside flaps).
  • Fold 3/4″ Whisper White circles in half. Then open up the card.
  • Use Glue Dots and attach half of one 3/4″ Circle to the right side of the middle fold so the score line of the circle is lined up with the score line of the middle of the card. Use Glue Dots and attach half of the other circle to the left side of the middle fold so the score line of the circle is lined up with the score line of the middle of the card. Then attach the Lovely Lipstick Starburst piece to the other halves of those circles using Glue Dots. Make sure it is centered.

  • Attach the designer strip with SNAIL down the middle of the Silver Foil strip.
  • Close the card and wrap the belly band around the card so the ends meet in the front middle. Secure with Glue Dots. Make sure the belly band can slip off and on the card easily but that it’s not too loose.

Petal Promenade Ori Base Fold Card

I have another unique card to share with you! It’s a basic fun-fold inspired by the traditional Origami Square Base. It’s like an explosion card but without an extra layer of cardstock to encase it. Instead I use a belly band to hold it shut. The Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and the Petal Promenade Designer Paper really bring it all together for a fun and stunning birthday card that’s sure to make anyone feel special.

Rather than writing out all the details & directions to make this fun-fold, I shared that information in this Facebook Live broadcast. Then I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and full products list below, scroll through the close-up photos of what I created, and then let me know if you have any questions.
By the way…I spent a bit of time at the beginning talking about the struggles of trying to broadcast when it was originally scheduled. Just scroll forward to skip that if you don’t to listen to me jabber. I also said it was Friday, March 14th that I recorded this, but it was Friday, March 15th…oops! And if you were wondering what kind of envelope to use, these cards will fit into our Medium Whisper White Envelopes,

Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate this card.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Cardstock
    • 8-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored at 4-1/4”…in the opposite direction at 4-1/4”…and then diagonally corner to corner (just once)
    • Scraps for stamping and punching 2” Circles
  • Petal Promenade Designer Paper
    • 4” x 4”
    • Two more 4” x 4” pieces also cut diagonally corner to corner
  • Blushing Bride (or Soft Sea Foam) Cardstock
    • ¾” x 4-1/4”
    • Scrap for stamping & punching small balloon
    • Scrap for punching a set of leaves
  • Melon Mambo (or Blackberry Bliss) Cardstock
    • 1” x 11”
    • Scrap for punching large balloon
    • Scrap for punching 2-1/4” Circle
    • Scrap for punching a set of leaves

 

Here are close-up photos of the Ori Base Fold Cards I shared in the video.

Best Catch in a Country Floral Lake

My boys have a vacation from school March 8-17. So to start off their Spring Break, I brought them 4 hours up north to my parents’ place. Isn’t this view of the frozen lake from their living room amazing?!

Early March 2019 Spring Break fun at the cabin! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

We left for the lake Thursday and are heading back home this evening. But we’ve had a wonderful time: waffles with whipped cream and berries,…

Early March 2019 Spring Break fun at the cabin! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

…trips into town for snacks, sleeping in the bunk bed room, watching movies, and of course outdoor fun! I know many of us in Minnesota are getting tired of the incredible amounts of snow we’ve gotten this year. (I feel sorry for those that don’t own a snow blower.) But my boys and I have loved all the sledding we’ve been able to do. And we we were in heaven at the cabin because the snow banks were high, the temps were super comfortable, and the long steep hill (their driveway in) was perfect!

Early March 2019 Spring Break fun at the cabin! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

My brother and his family were also up at the cabin. 4-1/2″ year-old cousin Yvette is always a ton of giggles and fun. And she “worships” her older cousins who adore her greatly.

Early March 2019 Spring Break fun at the cabin! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

The project I have to share with you today is the perfect cabin/lake card. I created it with the Best Catch Stamp Set, Catch of the Day Thinlits, and the Country Floral Embossing Folder (a free Sale-a-Bration Level one pick). I didn’t even intend for it to end up this way. I was going to use the floral embossed background to create an all floral card. But then my already colored-in fisherman fell on top of the Mint Macaron section while I was moving things around in my work space, and it looked like he was fly fishing on a misty morning! I added the fish and the “water droplets” above, and the rest of the layers came easily. I really love how it turned out.

The Country Floral Embossing Folder that just debuted on February 15, 2019 as a new Sale-a-Bration Level 1 free pick has been stunning on so many cards and projects! I used it on the front of this fishing card that I created with the Best Catch stamp set and Catch of the Day Thinlits. Click here to learn more and get the details for recreating this card! #stampyourartout #stampinup - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Measurements…

  • Mint Macaron Cardstock:
    • 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ and folded in half for the card base
  • Soft Suede Cardstock:
    • Two pieces that are 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″
    • Scrap for punching out 2″ Circle piece
  • Delightfully Detailed Mint Macaron Note Card Front:
    • 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
  • Whisper White Cardstock:
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting fisherman and fish pieces
    • 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″
    • Scrap for punching out 1-3/4″ Circle piece

Products I Used…  See below for a full list of supplies linked to where you can find them in my online store.

Directions…

  • Emboss the Delightfully Detailed Mint Macaron Note Card piece. Then lightly sand it with sandpaper to expose the white core on a few of the raised floral areas.
  • Stamp the sentiment, then punch it out with the 1-3/4″ Circle Punch so the words are far off to the left. Attach this piece to the Soft Suede 2″ Circle. Then attach this to the embossed layer, and trim off the excess.
  • Add the Soft Suede 4-7/8″ x 3-5/8″ layers on the front and inside. Add the embossed layer to the front of the card.
  • Stamp the fly on the 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White. Stamp the fish and the fisherman onto the Whisper White scraps. Use Blends to color in the images.
  • Die cut the fisherman and the fish.
  • Add the 4-3/4″ x 3-1/2″ Whisper White to the inside of the card.
  • Add the fisherman and the fish (on Dimensionals) to the front of the card.
  • Embellish with Clear Epoxy Droplets.

Jar of Sweets Pop Out Gate-Fold Cards

I put together two more pop out gate-fold cards using products from the How Sweet It Is suite, Pearlized Doilies (available for purchase, but ALSO available in a two-pack as a freebie during Sale-a-Bration), and Glitter Enamel Dots. You may recall that I shared how to make this style fun fold with the Floral Romance products in my February 6, 2019 post. And the card in THAT post was inspired by the make-n-take we made at Demos Galore that I shared in my February 4, 2019 post. So I hope you like these. Same fun fold…totally different look.

Here is the first one.
