Special Fold Card using the Retiring set Beach Happy

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that has a special Fold.  I used the Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Beach Happy.  This is retiring at the end of the month, so if you want to get it, don’t dilly dally!!

I really love this set…….I don’t usually hang onto my retiring stamps but this one I am not letting go!  🙂

Here is my card:

The white Sentiment is really a tab that sticks into the other side of the card and it holds the card closed.

Here you can see how it looks partially open.

Isn’t this is so pretty!!? I got this idea from Debbie Naylor, you can see her card here.  Debbie’s is a little different, she adhered her flap to the back, I wanted mine to open up fully.

I LOVE palms, seeing them makes me happy! Probably because I took them for granted while growing up in SoCal I never appreciated them until I don’t have them everywhere!  My hubby has some in our yard to bring me joy!

Here are the specifics for this card:

HedgeHog Cutie

Hey Guys!

I made a Hedgehog with a flower stamp!  I’ve seen this done over a year ago, and FINALLY decided to make one.  These are so cute it was always on my list to make one.  So happy with how it came out! Here is my card:

I thought that embossing the Tree Rings on Soft Suede using Gold Embossing Powder would be really pretty. This is so stunning in person!  This is a card we’ll be doing in my kid card class. This, in my opinion, would be great for a teen girl.  I would love getting this, wouldn’t you!?

Show-Off Frog

Hey Guys!

I have always loved frogs.  As a Child I had an Aunt who made a HUGE deal everytime I tried showing her a frog in my hand……I would say “Guess what I have” she would not be able to guess so I opened my hands and there was a frog.  She would run away and act scared!  No matter how many times I would ask her she NEVER could guess what was in my hands!  LOL  Looking back of COURSE she knew what was in there, she was the BEST Aunt and I have VERY fond memories of her!

Here is my card:

 

So, when I saw this So Hoppy Together stamp set by Stampin’ Up! it brought back these fun memories and this was first on my list to get for free!  Free?!  What?!  Yes, for the first three months every year SU! has a Sale a Bration catalog that you can earn FREE stamps! But, time is almost out, you can only get this stamp set while supplies last or the end of March.  Go check out Pinterest and see how many ideas you can get using this set!

I love how it looks like this frog is almost falling off this bike and his buddy is cheering him on.  This is for my Kids card class coming up!  Too cute!

Here are the specifics for this card:

High Tide Close Up

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that I HAD to make!  I saw it on YouTube by Esther-Stampin Star Creations.  THIS card was so much fun to make and I LOVE Black and White cards!

The ONLY thing I changed up from Esthers’ card is I added the Baker’s Twine on the bottom.  I also think my white is smaller than the one she used, I didn’t notice it was smaller until after I cut it! So there it stayed.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets

High Tide

Paper
Whisper White Thick 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ (x2)
black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Inks
Memento black
Basic Gray
Accessories
Layering Circles (2nd biggest)
Dimensionals
Black Bakers Twine
Sponges

When you look at this card, it looks like it would difficult. Or time consuming.  It’s neither!  Sponging is the main effect and that is easy to do!   I absolutely fell in love with this card and when that happens I HAVE  to make it right away!  I was done for the day, put on a video on YouTube and saw this one while I ate dinner. Normally I would plan on making it the next day, but this called to me and now that I have made it……..I LOVE it!  Thank you Esther!

If you are looking for a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love it if you could choose me!  I also have a YouTube Channel, and if you check me out and like the style of cards I make, we could make a great team!

Below are pictures of the supplies that I used, click on any of them and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me I will send you a small token of my appreciation!
