Twist Fold Fun Card

This is card features a pocket on the front and back making it perfect to tuck a gift card inside. I gave my customers a choice of which design they wanted from the Sycamore Street DSP.  Then they chose the coordinating colors and buttons for their embellishment.  I guess this is where the “Fun” comes in to play in its name.

The Stampin’ Trimmer makes it easy to score and cut the precise measurements for this card.

Winter Flower

Even though the holidays are almost behind us, snowflakes are still relevant for the winter season.  I used this ensemble of punches and die cuts to create a Winter Flower.  The silver glimmer paper makes the flower glisten.  I will be sending this to my peep, Mary Taylor for her birthday.  

I’m also going to crop out the flower and use it as my Facebook badge for January.

Get Well Wishes

Seems like I never have a get well card handy when I need one.  Glad that doesn’t happen often.  But I was thinking it might be a good idea to have some handy.  So along with have a few in my stash, we will also be making this card today at my stamp camp.


These cheerful colors will surely brighten someone’s day.

Just for You

I used this card with a different color palate (Calypso Coral & Basis Black) for my swap at a recent demonstrator event. Since I used all of my Calypso Coral brads for the swap, I  changed the color palate for my stamp camp.  I love the way the Modern Label Punch fits so nicely with the Blossum Punch.  Another reason why Stampin’ UP! is the greatest at coordinating products.

Everyday Enchantment

This card was made with the Sale-a-Bration Everyday Enchantment Designer Series Paper and Ribbon & Brad Pack.  It features the new Adorning Accents Edgelit Die and Embossing Folder.  Stampin’ Up’s Grid Paper, a clear Big Shot cutting pad and small pieces of removable tape are essential to make the learning curve a cinch.  Take your cutting pad to the grid paper, line up the edgelit onto the paper and tape it down.  Then take your cutting  pad to the Big Shot.  Make sure to place the tape on the part of the paper that will be unused.  The results of this embossed decorative edge gives this card the WOW factor.  I was squealing with delight!!!
