Elegant Friendship Cased Card

 Hi friends!

I hope this finds you all well and enjoying your week.

On Monday during my live stamping in my facebook VIP Group, I shared how to create this card ...

I cased it from Jamie Barbazy because I just LOVE it!  I did change it a little bit to make it my own.

It uses the Simply Elegant Specialty Designer Paper from page 133 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.

Here's what that gorgeous paper looks like ...


Every sheet has foiling on one side, either Gold, Silver or Copper or a combination of them. It is simply stunning.  When you use this paper, you don't need to add a lot to complete the card.

Here's the recipe:

Thick Very Vanilla 8-1/2 x 5-1/2

Very Vanilla 5-1/2 x 4-1/4 and 5-1/4 x 4

Simply Elegant Specialty DSP 1 x 5-1/2, 1/2 x 5-1/2 and some hand cut flowers

Copper Foil 5-1/2 x 1/2

Basic Black 2 x 3

Beauty of Friendship stamp set, Forever Blossoms stamp set

Ink: Smoky Slate, Versamark

Black Twine 19"

Silver Embossing Powder

Clear & Silver Epoxy Essentials

Tasteful Textiles embossing folder

Painted Labels Dies

Friday Collaboration Card - A Chicken Combo!

 Hi Friends!

Last Friday's Late Night Stamping Collaboration took me so far outside my comfort zone!  But the card came together, finally, and the end result is a truly fun and colourful interactive card!

During this creative experience, the viewers get to tell me how to make the card, and my hands do the work.

This time it started out with my suggestion of the Hey Chick and Hey Birthday Chick bundles.

Viewers requested Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape.

What do you think?  Do you like it?  Is it inside your comfort zone?

Here's the video on the creative collaboration. You can also see how I created the embossed background with trees at the top and "stones" at the bottom!  Yup so easy to do.  Then see the secret to stopping the background from sagging! No saggy cards in my craft room.

The fun interactive part is done using the Give It A Whirl Dies on page 163 of the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue.


I hope you enjoy the video and please consider subscribing to my YouTube Channel so you don't miss any of my videos, tutorials or Live Stamping on Tuesday mornings!

Quiet Meadow Fun Fold And Cased Card

Hi Friends!

I received the front of this card in a Canadian Swap I participated in from Joanne McTavish.

I liked it and decided to create it and change it up a bit. When I started I had Fun Fold pop into my mind. I don't usually come up with fun fold ideas on my own, and to be honest I don't know if this has been done before or not.

But I carried on and crated this fun fold that has 2 cards in one. 

The Front is basically as Joanne did it:

Then I opened it and used the same layout as the swap card ...

But, one more flip and this is where the magic happens!  Yup it has an inside as well!  

It is basically two cards folded into one, with some flipping and flapping involved. 

 If you like this card, check out my video below. I shared how to create it during my Thursday Drop In Live Stamping in my facebook VIP Group last Thursday.

CLICK HERE to join my VIP Group. It's FREE and available wherever you live.

Here's the video on how to create it, you can also watch it on my YouTube Channel along with hundreds of other videos as well.

I hope you enjoy the video and the card. Thanks for watching.

Stampin' Smiles!
