Vintage Vertical Greetings Gift Voucher Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

I’m back with another project using the Vertical Greetings stamp set!  This time I went to something quite different and chose a softer colour combination:

 

I’ve used Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum, and Rose Red along with Crumb Cake.  I also got out Always Artichoke, a colour I am starting to really like again.

 

This fun design opens up to two pockets – one for a notecard and the other for a photo or a voucher or anything slim!

I’ve used the Floral Affection folder here for a bit of trim.

 

One of the great things about this set is you can mix and match the pots with the “greenery” to fit the project.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the last couple of posts featuring the Vertical Greetings stamp set!  If you’d like to order your own set, email me or click below to order online!

Don’t forget – any order of $110 receives a FREE SaleABration product of your choice – no limit!

Vertical Greetings Double Front Acetate Window Card

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Happy Monday!  I’ve gotten so much done today – everything on my list except head to the gym!  LOL

Today’s share is a window card featuring the Vertical Greetings stamp set.  This is one of the six card kits I gifted to my team this year for Christmas, too:

 

I love the Vertical Greetings stamp set.  I like how the words are vertical and the clean nature of the topiary images.

 

This card design has an extra layer to create the acetate window feature on the front.   Simple fold two A5 cards in half and insert one into the other!

 

You can create the mulitple coloured images by simply using the Stampin’ Write Markers in place of an ink pad.   Not sure which markers and ink pads you need?  Download my free Inventory Checklist!

In This World in Vintage Z Fold

Like
Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

Happy New Year!

One of the class kits I gifted my team for Christmas centered around the In This World stamp set.  This is something of an eclectic set and fun to use:

 

I used one of the samples in the catalogue as inspiration for this one, but changed up the size, a few elements, and made it a z fold card.  I thought the sample was just beautiful.

 

It’s one of those projects that takes a little bravery, but following just a few techniques, you let the ink run where it may and create a unique piece each time.

 

To create the Z fold, simply score a strip of cardstock into thirds (or approximately thirds), and adhere between two panels.  So easy and fun!

Tomorrow is a big day in Stampin’ Up! world with the release of the new Occasions catalogue and the start of the SaleABration period.  Check back tomorrow for all the details!  (If you want to order In This World, best to do it after 4 Jan).

In addition, I will be sending out my January Customer Newsletter tomorrow, in the which will be an “newsletter only” embellishment bundle offer. If you aren’t receiving my newsletters, please sign up below:

Totally Trees Pop-Up Card + Last Day for the Online Extravaganza Savings!

We had such a great day on Saturday at the Stamp-A-Stack here in my studio!  Lots of laughing, eating, and crafting.  Everyone left with a pile of various card projects – a nice stash for both sending and inspiration.

My share today with you is a pop up card I taught at the Creative Inker’s Christmas Extravaganzas.   I wanted to make something that had a more tropical feel for the holidays.

The Totally Trees set is perfect; it has such a variety of tree images.

These pop up cards are actually an easy concept, and it was such fun for me to see the delight on so many faces when they realized they could make something so awesome with ease!!  Experiences like that make this “job” so fulfilling.

The colours here are Soft Sky, Sweet Sugarplum, Pear Pizzazz, and Early Espresso.  I wanted a fresh colour combination to reflect our New Zealand summer.

The Festive Embossing Folder used here is on discount, too – but through the end of today (Monday) only!

Christmas isn’t too far away, and I know many people are now starting to think about Christmas cards, tags, and gifts.  You will probably never see a green and red Christmas card here on this blog (it’s not that I don’t like it, I just think why choose predictable), and today’s share caters for those particularly in the South Pacific area who enjoy a warm Christmas holiday.

You may recognize this is another colour version of the project I posted a few days ago.  Both samples use the Floral Phrases bundle, a great set of stamps and dies for general crafting.

This project features a gorgeous pocket, perfect for wedding invitations, gift vouchers, photos, and small gifts.  Make this pocket in no time using the Florals Thinlits.

I’ve used the Christmas Pines stamp set here for the words and the This Christmas Paper for the background.

I also made a Cherry Cobbler Version for those wanting a bit more traditional colours.

I’m back on board!  After four fun days at the Hamilton Quilt & Craft Show, it’s taken me a day or so to unpack and get back into routine.  I have so many projects backlogged to publish, so let’s get started with one today!

Today’s share features the new Weather Together stamp set and die bundle – something cute a bit different to flowers.

I’m liking making swing cards at the moment, and this little umbrella is perfect for this style.

I’ve used Sweet Sugarplum, Dapper Denim (two current favorite colours) with Mint Macaron.

The background is embossed with the ever-popular Softly Falling embossing folder.  This one has got to be my all time favorite . . . so far.

It was my pleasure to share this vintage Best Birds Hanging Frame Card at the recent Extravaganzas.  I kept them all really busy, but the result was worth it!

Inspired by a swap from the Mediterranean Cruise by my Australian friend, Jennie Cass:

This project folds up easily and handily to fit into a 5×5 envelope:

We used the Best Birds bundle for that fun background image, as well as all the birds and greenery.

I heard many positive remarks about this design, particularly noted that they enjoyed that this project could be put on display for a while.
