Beauty Abounds Never Ending Card Tutorial

Today’s card is a fancy fold. This past month one of my team mates, Sue shared the way you can make this card with the rest of us. I couldn’t resist giving it a try with the Beauty Abounds stamp set and our lovely Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper that you can earn for FREE this month.

Here is what I came up with. There are 4 sides to this card so you have Never Ending options. LOL!

You can earn this Sale-a-bration product when you place a minimum purchase for the supplies I used to make this card, or for that matter and purchases. How great is that?

Here we go

Side one:


two:

three:

and four – which contains the final sentiment piece.

This card is sure to impress!

Want to see how I made it now? I’ve tweaked a few things that Sue showed us since I found it easier for me to put it together this way. So here is my video tutorial for you.

So why not give it a try?

This card can seem pretty complex until you break it down one side at a time – and of course the more you “work it” by opening all four sides in order the easier it gets, since the card will kind of have a “memory” of its movement.

And it’s a special sized card, so it won’t fit in a standard envelope; so you can make your own envelope for it using the Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper and the Envelope Punch Board (133774). Making it extra special for that special person who receives it!

Just a tip: For a more complicated card like this I like to keep a “pattern” that I’ve made with scratch paper or card stock with the directions – so the next time I want to make one I have a reference to look at too.

Enjoy!

And stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing some of the wonderful projects my team members brought to the March meeting to share.

#simplestamping with Paper Pumpkin

Today’s project is one that I created using the February Paper Pumpkin stamp set, Blooming with Kindness. I LOVE these kits it makes stamping so quick and easy since everything is in the kit it’s definitely #onestopstamping and perfect for taking with you or giving as a gift because everything you need is included including adhesive. It’s great for all ages too.

After putting my kit projects together I was itching to get started on this little note card.

I wanted to the cup to look delicate like china so I reached for my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends since I like teaming this color up with Mint Macaron which I knew I wanted to use for the succulent. Petal Pink is soft and feminine too which was the look I was going for.

So what do you think? I really like the way this note card turned out and knew I could make a bunch more since the Note Cards come in sets of 20 AND the note cards include the envelopes too! A great budget friendly option at just $6.50.

If you haven’t already used them Stampin’ Blends are sooooo easy to work with check out my video to see just how easy they are! And I love building my collection of Blends by choosing my colors to work with the stamp set I’ve already have. I know that I’ll use them right away that way too.

Home to Roost – March Thank You Card

Today’s card uses another FREE Sale-a-bration stamp set that you can earn when placing a qualifying order. Home to roost has this image of a wonderful rooster – I couldn’t resist reaching for my Stampin’ Blends to create a bold image for today’s project.

If you haven’t tried our Stampin’ Blends yet, you’ll want to be sure to do so. They are so easy to use, weather doing some blending with the two shades or just coloring with the one tone you’ll end up feeling accomplished – and it is so easy. Check out my quick video tutorial for this card and you’ll see just how easy they are to use!

And make sure you have our Memento Tuxedo Black Ink Pad – you’ll need this pad when you uses our Stampin’ Blends since the StazOn won’t work with the Alcohol markers.

Home to Roost Card Video Tutorial

A funny story I had some help on this card during my last team craft time – it took 3 of us putting our heads together for the perfect rooster colors. LOL I’d was having so much fun making the roosters a bit different. Sue’s suggestion of the Subtle Embossing Folder background added just the right touch. She’s right it is a great folder. I love to craft with friends and share ideas, how about you?

Here is a PDF tutorial so you can have a printed version to go along with the video in case you’d like to make some of thee cards which will be mailed out today kicking off my March Thank You cards.

#imbringingbirthdaysback with Painted Seasons

I love sending birthday cards to family and friends and today’s card is my March birthday card that I’ve created using the NEW Sale-a-bration option, Painted Seasons. While this stamp set is bundled with a fantastic Designer Series Paper I wanted to create something with just the stamps for this project and here is what I came up with.

Bright and cheerful – it uses a favorite color of mine Berry Burst that has been teamed up with Granny Apple Green. And I used Basic Gray instead of black for the sentiment to give this card a “softer” feel.

This card uses our Rectangle Stitched Framelits Dies a must have if you love the stitch look that so on trend and it makes creating this card so easy. I’ve whipped up a quick video for you, so why not check it out?

And of course I love a printable PDF so I’ve got that for you too with all the measurements and supplies.

Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book & More

Today’s project is one that we did as last Weekend’s Peak Princess event. What is that you ask? This event is a special one for those on my team who qualify for it. It’s an afternoon of pampering – filled with games, prizes, and a special project and best of all time together.

Want to see some photos? This first one is of the class room, ready to go – the little skinny notepads that I shared with you yesterday are at everyone’s seats.

And of course there has to be some goodies, right?

One of the dishes I served was a delicious Black Bean Salsa that Sara Douglas shared with us on her face book page, sorry I can’t find it again to link it for you. She gave approximate measurements since she doesn’t measure the chopped ingredients – so I’m giving you what I did below. You can tweak it to fit your tastes.

Black Bean Salsa

Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up! CEO

2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed

2 cans of corn, drained and rinsed

1 bunch green onion, chopped

½ purple onion, chopped

1-2 cups red, orange, yellow and green peppers, chopped

Cilantro, leaves pulled and chopped

2 tsp olive oil

2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar

2 tsp. Lime juice

¼ tsp. Garlic powder, salt and pepper (to taste)

Mix and serve. This makes a big bowl, the picture below is just half of what it made. So if you want the recipe can be cut in half.

Serve with corn chips – I used blue ones.


We played bingo – my daughter was home on break so she called Bingo for us (She thought it would be great practice for her upcoming band fundraiser too. Yes, believe it or not she is a Band Director. This is her second year of teaching now!)

Here are just a couple of the prize winners – we played 5 games

And of course we crafted together

And this February’s project was such a hit I thought I’d share it with you today in case you’d like to make some too. It’s a book that holds your cards – it includes a perpetual calendar for you too. It’s a great item that I’ve been using myself for years!

I really love the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and it’s beautiful pearl finish that some of the sheets have so I started there. I think the fact that this Designer Series Paper is a bit heavier will help it hold up for years to come.

Here is the video I did for you.

Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book Video Tutorial

I’ve also created a pdf for you with the step by step directions and supply list.

Share What You Love Perpetual Calendar Card Book PDF

And here is the link for the Calendar pages for you. I simply printed them off onto Whisper White card stock.

Perpetual Calendar Pages PDF

I think these are going to make great gifts, so I’ll be getting a few more packages of this DSP so I can start my holiday gifts now and earn FREE Sale-a-bration items too! This pack of Designer Series Paper has 24 sheets in it so you can make several per pack of DSP and then use the extra sheets to create cards to go with the book!

Love the project but don’t have a binding machine? That’s not a problem – check with your local Office Supply Store. They normally can bind things for you or allow you to use their machine when you purchase the combs from them.

Enjoy!

And if you think this might be something you may enjoy – why not consider joining my team?

Bloom by Bloom Calendar Card

I had some more calendars that I wanted to use so I made this bright and cheerful Bloom by Bloom Calendar Card to send out. I know it’s almost the end of January but I think they will still bring a smile to the recipients face.

I’ve created a PDF Tutorial for this card and if you would like to see my earlier video tutorial that I shared with you showing you how I made these calendar bases for my Forever Lovely Calendar Card CLICK HERE.

Just a note: the video has been notated that I said the wrong measurement for the base on the video, but please know that the PDF is correct. Sometimes my mouth gets ahead of my brain. Ever have that happen? lol. But know that you start with a standard card base that is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.
