Step Out Fun Fold card

Hello Crafters,

Now here is something different and it was inspired by LeeAnn Greff.

This card folds flat and fits into a card size envelope as the base is A5 in size.

The colours used here are Raspberry Ripple, Midnight Muse & Primrose Petals with White.


and here it is opened up



And this is what it looks like standing up, cool huh?!!!


I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to make all the score lines and the cuts for this card, before decorating with Simple Stems stamp set (wood or clear).

Here are the measurements:


I just love the layering of the punches behind the sentiment!

Flower Pot Card

Morning Crafters,

Here is my take on the Flower Pot card which has been around for years, but this is my first time creating one ~ I don’t know why it took me so long, when it was so simple!

I have used Soft Suede cardstock 9″ x 3-1/2″ then scored it at 3-1/2″ & 7″.

Fold in a zigzag and using a border punch, create the edge on the flower pot.

Measure in 1/2″ from each side at the bottom of the pot and mark with a pencil. Holding up the flap, draw a line from the pencil mark to the top corner to create the pot shape. Cut along each of these lines through the double thickness of cardstock.

Take some ribbon and tie it around the top of the flower pot (as shown). This holds the card together without any gluing!!!

Take a piece of soft suede card measured at 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ and a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock of 2-1/4″ x 4-1/4″.

Layer these on top of each other. This creates the section for your written message and slides into the pot.

Once you have this in the pot, decorate as desired, ensuring you cover the top part of the card and that some of the images sit in front of the pot.

HANDY TIP: It is also a good idea to lay this onto an envelope so as not to add too much height that it won’t fit into a standard size envelope!!!!

I have used Real Red, Coastal Cabana and the Fresh Prints Designer Series paper stack, along with the Simple Stems Stamp set and the coordinating Secret Garden Framelits. This stamp set and DSP are available from 28th January during Sale-a-bration!

Be sure to let me know what you think of my take on the Flower Pot card!

Simple Stems, part 2

Hello Stampers,

A couple of days ago I showcased some samples using the Simple Stems Stamp Set which is in the new Occasions Catalogue, available for purchase from 28th January. 

Here is another sample using that same stamp set, although a different type of flower from that set.

I have used Gumball Green and Raspberry Ripple in this card. The flowers remind me so much of our family holiday to Thailand last year, although they were more red that Raspberry Ripple, but I just love this colour combination.

I also added a Simply Pressed Clay flower embellishment and coloured it with the Gumball Green Stampin’ Write Marker.

Simple Stems, part 1

Hello Stampers,

As you know, I am having loads of fun playing with my new supplies from the Sale-a-bration brochure & Occasions catalogue.

Here are some more lovely samples using the Simple Stems Stamp Set which is in the new Occasions Catalogue, available for purchase from 28th January. Just let me know if you would like a copy of the catalogues mailed to you prior to the sale starting!

The gorgeous background papers are delightful and I am finding it really hard to choose between the different packs, so I got a pack of each!!!

Sweet Sorbet is from the Sale-a-bration brochure which if you place an order of $90 or more, you can get a packet for free!

Water Colour Wonder is in the soon to be released Occasions Catalogue and is to die for.

The stamp set, Simple Stems, also has two of its images that coordinate with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies.

Okay, so now for some samples ~ In this first card I used the Water Colour Wonder DSP and stamped the images in Pistachio Pudding and Crisp Canteloupe.
