How to CASE a card

Beautiful You with Pop of PinkToday I am going to share with you my strategy on how to CASE a card.   So a couple of weeks ago, one of my downlines and I challenged each other to make a card with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You stamp set and the Pop of Pink Designer Series paper.  This is the card that Jeanne made.

The dimensions on this card are:

1.  Card base:  Basic Black card stock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″

2.  Next Layer:  Melon Mambo card stock cut to 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″ layered with a piece of 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Whisper White card stock.

3.  Top Layer:  Melon Mambo card stock but to 3 5/8″ x 2 5/8″ layered with a piece of Whisper White cut to 3 1/2″ x 2 1/2″.

The Lady is stamped with Basic Black Archival ink on the Whisper White and again on the Pop of Pink DSP with the polka dot design.  You cut out just inside the lines of the dress on the Designer paper and attach that to your card.  The hat is stamped  on a scrap of Melon Mambo card stock, cut out and layered onto the card.  Then “Celebrate…” is stamped on the bottom.  This layer is attached with dimensionals on an angle to the card.
Beautiful You with Pop of pink
Here is my version of the card.

I used Basic Gray card stock for my card base.  Then I layered a piece of the Herringbone striped paper from the Pop of Pink Designer paper pack.  This layer is cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. 

Next is a piece of Melon Mambo card stock and a layer of the white and triangle design Pop of Pink DSP. 

Last I stamped the lady on the small polka dot pattern of the DSP and the hat on a scrap of Melon Mambo cardstock.

NOTE:  Stampin’ Up!’s paper snips are a must for making this card with all the fine detailed cutting.

This technique is called Paper piecing since you are cutting the images out and piecing them together.

And here is a 3rd card that one of my customers made after seeing these two cards:

Beautiful You with Pop of Pink




She also used the Basic Gray cardstock and the Herringbone pattern for her card base. 

She changed the second layer to a piece of Whisper White since she chose a very strong Melon Mambo patterned diagonal Stripped paper for her 2nd layer. 

The third layer is a piece of Basic Black cardstock which I think makes the herringbone pattern stand out a little more.  She stamped her message on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock.  She cut the message out with the small oval framelit and then cut a layer out of Melon Mambo with the Scalloped oval framelit.  She used a dimensional so the message pops!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone!  Today I am sharing on oldie but goodie that I made a few years ago with the TotallyTess stamp set from Stampin’ Up!.  The message “Happy St. Patrick’s Day” is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

Since  I live in Boston i will pass on a little Boston history!  When I first moved to Boston in 1991 (yes, 26 years ago) I was in awe of the history and all of the historical sites that I was seeing every day!  I was working in Charlestown in the Navy Yard and saw the ship the Constitution every day.  I was driving by Bunker Hill every day.  I learned that I love to learn about the history of our country and the areas of Boston. 

My biggest shock was when I found that St. Patrick’s Day is a State Holiday!  Not because it is St. Patrick’s Day but because it is evacuation Day.  Do you know what Evacuation day is?  If you live in Massachusetts, you know..

It is the day that the British evacuated Boston following the end of the Revolutionary War!

Have a great day today and enjoy your St. Patrick’s Day with a little green beer!

And Happy Stamping!

More Z Fold Cards

Dragonfly Z Fold CardToday I am posting a video that I made showing how to make a Z Fold Card.  These cards have been really popular lately and can be made with virtually any stamp set.  Here are 3 examples!

This top example is a card that is made using the Dragaonfly Dreams stamp set (designed by one of my customers).  It uses the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper combined with a piece of the Falling in Love Designer Series Paper, both from the current Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog.

Both the Dragonfly Dreams and Oh So Succulent Stamp sets are used to create the stamped images for this card.

Life me Up Z fold card
This second card is made using the Lift Me Up stamp set with the Carried Away Designer paper from the Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogs from this spring.

One of the things that I love about this card is using the design of the Carried Away Designer Series Paper in the design.  I cut out the mountains out of the Designer paper and used those on the 3D center portion of the card along with the map.

My son is moving to Canada next week for a new project with his job.  What a great card for him – moving onto new adventures!


A few weeks ago I posted this card for Valentine’s Day using the Sending love Designer Series Paper with the Sealed with Love Bundle.   This was actually the first Z Fold Card that I made.

Beautiful You and Watercoloring

Today I have been working with the Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Stamp set with Watercolor paper and the new Watercolor pencils.  I love the backgrounds that you can make with the Watercolor pencils.  I have put together a Watercolor class using the pencils and the Beautiful You stamp set!
Beautiful You Watercolor
This is a card that was inspired by one of my downlines on the Stamping New England Design Team, Margaret Galvez.  I love this card!

So the details on this card:

This 3D Frame is made by scoring a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Night of Navy Cardstock at 5″, 5 1/2″ & 10 1/2″.  Then cut out a window on the front panel by cutting 1/2″ in on each side of the card leaving a 1/2″ window.  Cut a 4 1/4″ x 1″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock.  Score down the middle at 1/2″  Fold in half and attach to inside of frame with Tear & Tape to hold the frame together.

The actual image in the frame is a 4 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of Watercolor paper.  I used the Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo pencils and scribbled on the Watercolor paper from the top to 2/3 of the way down the paper. Next I used an aqua painter filled with water to spread and blend the color from the pencils.  I used a fair  amount of water to make a lighter image.  You can use less water if you want a deeper image. Then I colored the bottom of the paper with the tempting turquoise pencil and again used the aqua painter to blend the pencil.  Set this aside to dry.

In the meantime – stamp the dancing lady from the Beautiful You stamp set on a scrap of Whisper White cardstock with Black Archival ink.  Use the pencils to color in this image and cut the lady out.  Ink up the top half of the lady and stamp on a scrap of dazzling diamonds glimmer paper to make just the top of the dress.  Cut this out.  Attach to the dancing lady image that you cut out.

After the watercolor paper has dried, stamp the dancing lady image again lining up the bottom of the foot with the line between the pink and blue of the background.  Use dimensionals on the back of your dancing lady that you have cut out.  Attach over the stamped image on the watercolor background.  Attach the background to the inside of the frame.

Stamp the phrase “Life Looks Beautiful on You”  with the black archival ink on a scrap of Whisper White.  Cut out with the layering oval framelits.  Cut an oval scallop one size larger from a scrap of Soft Sky cardstock.

To add a little dimension to the frame, I used a Wink of Stella pen to outline the inside edge of the frame.  It adds just enough pizazz to pull your eye to the card.

I hope you have enjoyed my card today!

Happy Stamping!

Red Hat meets Beautiful You Stamp set

Today I am sharing a card designed with the new Stampin’ Up! Beautiful You Stamp set to make a Red Hat card. This card was designed by one of my Downlines, Margaret.

This is a quick and simple card made with Elegant Eggplant cardstock cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″ to form the card base.  The card base is embossed with the Softly Falling Embossing folder to add a little dimension.

And of course since Red Hat Colors are Red and Purple there is a layer of Real Red cardstock cut to 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″.  Next is a layer of Basic Black cut to 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ and a layer of Whisper white cut 3 1/8″ x 4 3/8″.

The image is stamped with Black Archival ink on the Whisper White cardstock.   The lady is stamped a second time on a scrap of Elegant Eggplant cardstock and cut out to piece the dress on the lady.  The hat is stamped a second time on Real Red cardstock and cut and pieced to the hat.

When designing cards there are several common measurements to use for layering.  A common layer is 1/4″ between pieces of cardstock.  On this card, a narrow 1/8″ layer is used to mat the focal piece of Whisper white cardstock.  Then a wider layer of 1/4″ is used between the Basic black and Real Red cardstock.   I like the framed look that the difference in layers gives the folcal point of the card.

Valentine’s Z Fold Card

Happy Valentine’s Day!  Today I am sharing a Double Z Fold Card that I made for a Valentine’s Day class that I was teaching.  This card uses the Sending Love Suite of Products from Stampin’ up!

The stamp set is Sealed with Love from Stampin’ Up! which is part of the Sealed with Love Bundle (144705).  Don’t forget that you save 10% by purchasing the stamp set and coordinating famelits together!

The Designer paper is the Sending Love Designer paper (142733) which coordinates with Real Red and Whisper White cardstock.

So the details on this Z fold card…  Warning that this card is not a quick card.  There are a lot of moving parts and it does take some time to assemble.  But they are beautiful when they are done!

The card base is a piece of Real Red cardstock cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 3″ and 5 1/2″.  The first panel has a 2 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Sending Love Designer paper layered on a 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″ piece of whisper white cardstock.  The middle panel is a different piece of the designer paper cut to 2 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.  The 3rd panel is cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ layered on a piece of whisper white cardstock cut to 4 1/8″x 5 3/8″.

The piece that makes this card fun is the front piece that makes the Z Fold.  This is a piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 1″ x 11″ scored at 3″ and 5 1/2″.  The key to this piece is you fold it in the same Z pattern but attach it in the opposite direction.  The end of the 5 1/2″ piece is attached to the front 3″ panel and the 3″ piece is attached to the 5 1/2″ panel.  Warning:  Make sure to fold your card before you go any further to make sure the fold works correctly.

The front panel is decorated with a couple of 7/8″ pieces of the Sending Love Designer paper.  Now the fun part!  Stamping all the embellishments and you can go crazy with this!  I used Real Red ink with Whisper White cardstock to stamp the Happy Valentine’s Day message on the 3rd panel.  This is cut out with a circle from the Layering Circles framelits and is layered on a larger scallop circle cut from Real Red cardstock.  These Love Notes framelits are so much fun.  There are a lot of pieces to this set!  I cut the cupid’s arrows from scraps of Real Red cardstock and used these to enhance the Happy Valentine’s day message.  

Other embellishments are rows of hearts that I stamped with real red ink on whisper white cardstock and cut out to line the Z panel.  The 3D Heart Flowers were stamped with real red ink on whisper white and with white craft ink on Real red cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.  The Heart flowers are cut out with the die that makes them 3D and attached to a 1/8″ strip of cardstock to make a “stem”.  These are attached to a 1/2″ x 4″  piece of cardstock that is run from the card base to the front strip so the hearts can pop when the card opens.  Also included with this framelit set is two small envelopes that you can add Love Notes to.  

The envelope is a scrap of whisper white cardstock cut using the envelope die.  The little love note is a piece of whisper white that I stamped the string of hearts on and cut out with the love note die.   The heart on the outside of the envelope is a scrap of blushing bride cardstock with a single heart stamped and cut out with the dies.  I added a second envelope in Real Red cardstock with a another love note to the middle panel.  This die set is a great way to use up lots of scraps!  I made other embellishments from scraps of Red Glimmer paper.  This is my favorite Valentine stamp set that Stampin’ Up! has made in several years!  Such a great versatile set!  I think that I will make a couple of Wedding and Anniversary cards with this set.

Stay tuned for my video which is being edited that shows the details of this card.

Succulent Garden Ideas

Today I am sharing a card that I made with the Stampin’ Up! Succulent Garden suite of products.  All I can say is WOW!!  I love flowers and floral papers.  This is my new favorite floral set!  This set allows you to make beautiful 3D flowers.  Warning, it takes some time to cut all the pieces for these flowers.  So this is not a Stamp set that you would go to for quick cards.  Although that might be a good challenge.  Design some quick and easy cards with this set.

Well I am digressing.  So here are the details for this card.  This project uses the Succulent Garden Suite of products from Stampin’ Up!.  That is the Oh So Succulent Bundle with the stamp set and coordinating Framelits.  The paper is the Succulent Garden Designer Series Paper.

First you want to start by cutting out the 5 layers of the solid image flower using the framelits.  Stamp the tips of the larger layers with Sweet Sugarplum ink and the small stamp that highlights the tip of the flower.  I used glue dots to assemble the layers of the flower together.  I suggest that while you are cutting, cut out extra pieces so you can make the flowers to have on hand for cards…  I made a stack of flowers using a lot of colors including, Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron, Mint Macaroon, Perfect plum and Wisteria Wonder and of course Whisper White.

The card base is a 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ layer of Sweet Sugarplum cardstock scored at 4 1/4″.  Next is a 5 1/4″ x 4″ layer of Whisper White cardstock and a 3 3/4″ x 5″ layer of the Sweet Sugarplum checker pattern paper from the Succulent Garden DSP.  Adhere the designer paper to the Whisper White layer.  Add a piece of Sweet Sugarplum ribbon around the top left corner of the card.

Next is a 3″ x 3 1/2″ piece of Sweet Sugarplum layered with a 2 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ piece of the flowered pattern of Succulent Garden DSP.  Then a 2 1/8″ x 3 3/8″ piece of Old Olive cardstock layered with a 2″ x 3 1/4″ piece of Old Olive patterned paper from the Succulent Garden DSP.

Last, I added the flower at the intersection of the two DSP layers.  I love the look of this package of Designer Paper.

Valentine’s 3D Candy Box

Today I am sharing a 3D Valentine’s box for this week’s Global Design Team Challenge.  I made this box from a pattern that one of my team members on the Stamping New England Team, Margaret Galvez created.  She is a very creative and talented person and a great asset to my team! 










So the details on this project. The box is made from a 4 1/4″ x 9 1/4″  piece of Real Red Cardstock.  Score the piece at 3, 3 1/2″ , 6 1/2″, 7″.  Score the two long sides at 1/4″ x 5/8″.  Fold along the score lines and then cut out tabs along the top and bottom flaps. 

The two flaps are decorated with pieces of the Sending Love Designer Series Paper Stack from the Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog!   The tricky part with this box is the arrow on the top.  Margaret used the Heart framelit from the Love Notes Framelits die which has two sides that fold up.  She cut an arrow on the top  of the box and fed the sides of the heart thru the arrow to make a closoure.  When you fold the sides of the heart down, it makes a heart on top of the box.  I used Red Foil to cut the heart for the closure.




This box holds 6 of the Hershey nuggets.  You can wrap the nuggets in 1″ x 3″ pieces of Sending Love Designer paper – perfect for using up the scraps!

I love this cute little box!

Perfect for a small Valentine’s gift for a friend or teacher!
Here are the items that were used for this box:

How to make a Masculine Card

Today I am going to show you how I took a Valentine’s card that I made a couple of days ago and transformed that card into a Masculine card.  One of my customers asked me “How to make a Masculine card” using the Stampin’ Up! Warmth and Cheer Designer paper from the Holiday catalog.  She specifically wanted to use this paper for a Masculine Valentine’s card. This paper has a very masculine look with plaids that look like flannel shirts or masculine sweaters.

The card base is Cherry Cobbler cardstock cut the long way at 4 1/4″ x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Next is a layer of whisper white cardstock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  The third layer is a piece of Warmth and Cheer Designer Series Paper cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. 

The band on this card is a crumb cake version of the same pattern of Warmth and Cheer DSP cut to 1 1/2″  x 5 1/4″.  I like the modern images of this DSP and I especially love the fact that Stampin’ Up! Designer papers always coordinate with Stampin’ up! cardstocks.  There are several shades of red and each Designer paper has the colors listed so It makes it so easy to match colors when crafting.  You always know that the colors listed on the DSP will coordinate with the rest of your project!

I stamped the sentiment “Love – Note” with Cherry Cobbler ink on a 3/4″ x 3″ piece of Sahara Sand cardstock.  I cut the end to look like a tail. and added a few of the enamel shapes to the end of the tail.

Next I stamped the String of hearts with real red ink on whisper white cardstock and cut out the strings of hearts using the matching thinlit dies! 

Last I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ to the inside of the card.  I stamped “Happy Valentine’s Day” with a string of hearts along the bottom.  A quick and simple card! 

So the lesson here is if you see a card that you really like but need to change the tone of the card, just change the Designer Series paper!  Stampin’ UP! products make that easy.  All the Designer papers are labeled with all the colors included in each paper pattern.  

Happy Stamping!

This is a quick and simple card made from the following sketch.  It only requires a couple of ingredients:  Real Red Ink, Real Red cardstock, Whisper White cardstock and the Sending Love DSP and coordinating Sealed with Stamp set  from the Occasions catalog.

The card base is Real Red cardstock cut the long way at 4 1/4″ x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Next is a layer of whisper white cardstock cut to 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″.  The third layer is a piece of Sending Love Designer Series Paper cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. 

The band on this card is a second pattern of the Sending Love DSP cut to 1 1/2″  x 5 1/4″.  I like the modern images of this DSP and I especially love the fact that Stampin’ Up! Designer papers always coordinate with the cardstocks.  It makes it so easy to craft.  You always know that the colors listed on the DSP will coordinate with the rest of your project!

I stamped the sentiment “Love – Note” with Real Red ink on a 3/4″ x 3″ piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the end to look like a tail. and added a few rhinestone jewels to the end of the tail.

Next I stamped the String of hearts with real red ink on whisper white cardstock and cut out the strings of hearts using the matching thinlit dies! 

Last I added a layer of Whisper White cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″ to the inside of the card.  I stamped “Happy Valentine’s Day” with a string of hearts along the bottom.  A quick and simple card!

Dragonfly Dreams CASE

If you have been following the crafting world, you may have heard the word CASE.  So what is a CASE?   CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything. A great compliment to fellow card designers since that means that someone really likes your card or project.  So I am going to show you how I CASED a card that one of my friend’s made this weekend at a stamping event.

Well today my card is inspired by two things – a card that my fellow Stamping Up!  BFF Angela made this weekend using the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp set and second, this week’s color challenge from the Global Design Team!









And here is Angela’s card.

So I used the technique and layout that Angela used on her card and changed the colors for this week’s GDP.  Here are the Details for my card:

The card base is Whisper White cut to 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  The next layer is a piece of Delightful Dijon cardstock cut to 5 1/4″ x 4″.  Then the 3rd layer is a second piece of Whisper White cardstock cut to 3 3/4″ x 5″. 

On the top layer of Whisper White, I stamped the polka dot background stamp from the Dragonfly Dreams stamp set with Silver ink and embossed it with Silver embossing powder.  Next I used the coordinating Detailed Dragonfly framelits and cut the large dragonfly from the center of the card.  I inserted a Dragonfly that I cut with the same framelit with Silver Foil cardstock.  NOTE:  I used glue dots on the center of the body so the wings are loose and you can bend them to give the card a little dimension.  Next I cut a detailed dragonfly from a piece of Dazzling Details Glimmer Paper which I layered over the Silver Foil Dragonfly.

Then I cut a string of the little dragonflies from a scrap of a Delightful Dijon cardstock.  I cut apart a string of two dragonflies and a single dragonfly.  I colored the dragonflies with the Clear Wink of Stella Pen to add a little glitter to the dragonflies.  Then – don’t forget to stamp your sentiment to the card.  I used Delightful Dijon ink to stamp the sentiment.

And of course, I used a bling with Rhinestone jewels on the bodies of the dragonflies.

Here are the supplies that I used to make this card:
