Dear Crafters,

Today’s card is a double Z fold card which you will find all over the internet, on Pinterest, YouTube, everywhere!!!

They are really quite simple to create once you know how. It’s just a matter of having a card measuring 4-1/8″ x 11-5/8″, scored on the long edge at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″.

Then I took a 1″ x 11-5/8″ piece of card and scored it at 2-3/4″ & 5-1/2″ then added a piece of DSP the same length, but 3/4″ wide. Glue this strip onto the card.

The bear is stamped and fussy cut and added to the 1″ strip with tombo glue. Check out his cute little glimmer bow!

I haven’t added any sentiments to this card as yet, as I don’t have anyone to give it to, but I was thinking of maybe adding a brand new babies name to the front panel. I think that would look very cute!

Just Add “S”

Dear Crafters,

It has been quite a few months since I have entered any challenges, but today I enter the Just Add Ink challenge, “Just Add S” to your project (#318).

So I have chosen to add a Sunburst!

I love making this style of card, not only does it showcase so many of the wonderful Stampin’ Up! papers, but it can also use up some smaller scraps left over from previous projects.

I also adore this new Baby Bear stamp set. Isn’t it just adorable? I have stamped it with Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Soft Suede, as it is a two-step stamp, although there are 3 parts to it, hence the 3 colours!

I also wanted to show you some cards with the new Affectionately Yours DSP using the same Sunburst technique. They are so bright and cheery. This time the little cat is created using the Foxy Friends bundle (purchase both items together to save $$).

Baby Bear

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a card that I couldn’t wait to create using the brand new Baby Bear stamp set. Check him out, how cute is he?

Baby Bear, DIY, #stampinup, Handmade card, Stampin Up 2016, Layered Square Framelits

I started by embossing the background of the card using the new Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Next I stamped the baby bear 3 times starting with Sahara Sand ink, Crumb Cake and then Soft Suede for the final layer.

I used the largest of the plain squares from the new Layered Squares framelits to cut the white layer and then the largest of the scallop squares in Island Indigo card and joined them together with dimensionals.

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set. Isn’t this just the most adorable baby bear?!
