This time we will be using the Foam Brayer to put the color onto the Folder Winter Snow, then spritz with the Alcohol/Champagne Mist. Second, you will die cut out the window & Snowflakes using the dies that comes from the Snowflake Wishes Bundle. Thirdly, you will stamp your sentiment. And Last you will put them all together to make this awesome shaker card!

Are kid cards hard for you to make? I am challenged with kid and masculine cards……not sure why, Stampin’ Up! makes it easy, I guess it’s because I am not drawn to kid stamps. But, the Wiggle Worm bundle really called to me! They are just so stinkin’ cute! Don’t you think?
With this in mind, looking at the stamp set and dies, the Bugs are super cute, add in the grass and mushrooms and this card practically made itself! Don’t you love the clouds too?! There is ONE problem that I have with this card, the bare space towards the bottom right is bugging me! Ha! Pun not intended! Would you add something more? For the inside I used the little flying bugs, and thought of adding one to that space, but am afraid that I will over do it.
Speaking of the inside here it is!
For the class on the 3rd Wednesday (of every month at 1:00) at our local Senior Enrichment Center, the subject is ‘kids’, so I decided to do this one! Would you add one of the little bugs to the front? Or are you like me and say ‘less is more’ and let it shine on it’s own? Please let me know what you think!
As always, here are the specifics for this card:
Stamps: Wiggle Worm
Inks: Memento Black Versamark Merry Merlot Blends: Highland Heather combo, Balmy Blue Lt
Paper: Highland Heather 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ Merry Merlot 5 1/4″ x 4″ scraps for mushrooms Balmy Blue 5″ x 3 3/4″ Whisper White 5″ x 3 3/4″, scraps for sentiment Garden Green scraps for grass
Misc: Chalk Marker White Embossing Powder Heat tool Wink of Stella Dimensionals
So, what do you think? Do you agree with me? That these bugs are just too cute!? My favorite part is the Mushrooms! They just make me smile.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Come back later in week to see what ELSE I am making in the Kid class! Keep in mind that I’m not always talking about ‘little’ kids! My Granddaughter will LOVE the one I’ll show you later! Am I a stinker trying to entice you to come back?! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! If you are looking for a Demo in the United States, I will do whatever I can do to help you make your own creations! Below you will see all the supplies in picture form, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store! For every order you make from $35 + you will receive from me 2 sets of Tutorials of over 45 just as my thank you!

I was perusing Pinterest seeing what I could make, and I found a Z fold card by Karen Watts and loved her scene! Of course I had to start making my own! And being me, I HAD to add to what I saw on her card AND put in my NEW stamp sets that I just got from the NEW catalog by Stampin’ Up!
I wanted to use the Bike Ride, have the bike going along the beach, and since I had a beach I HAD (again) to use High Tide for the water! High Tide is the greatest stamp set for making water! And since I was using the water I also used the grass, birds on the beach and the birds that are flying! Birds!! For those that know me everytime I use the word/stamp birds, I think of Bambi and say it like Flower said it……..BIRD! 🙂
I also wanted to pull in Seasonal Layers with their Beach Chair! That is such a fun set! Ok, I admit it…….Stampin’ Up! has waaaaaaay too many cute sets! They are fun to play with and BOY they are great for making a story!
Here is my card closed:
Here is the card partially open:
There’s the chair! And now open all the way:
I LOVE how it came out, don’t you!? Not sure what sentiment to put on, or if it needs one……what do you think? Sometimes when I send out my greeting cards, I don’t put a greeting on it, since I want to say what I want to say and let the card speak for itself! Do you ever do that?
Bermuda Bay: 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 8 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 11, scored in the same places (when you put on card, the folds are opposite)
Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4 (x’s 2), 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 2 1/2″ x 1 1/4″ (xs 2) and scraps for stamping and chair.
I used a post it for the sun, JUST be sure and cut the circle in HALF before you sponge sun! LOL For some reason my mind couldn’t fathom that when I stamped the ocean that it would cover the circle….kind of hard when I didn’t take off the circle when I stamped the ocean OVER the circle! Let me tell you, for some reason (though I’ve done it before) it didn’t dawn on me to cut the circle in half since I was ONLY using half of it to mask the sun. Sheesh!! I’m sure I am the ONLY one that happens to!
Now, on to my Blog Candy!!

Today the mail came and inside was my framelits for Bike Ride from Stampin’ Up! Of course I had to give it a try!
I wanted mountains in my picture so I tore some Post-It notes and stuck them to the top of my card:
I then sponged lightly Dapper Denim at the top, making the part closer to the Sticky Notes darker, and then fading the color away.
I ran the cardstock that I was using through the Big Shot with the bumpy rock thinlit under the paper, then ran it though. This gave the Cardstock the bumps! They look like rocks so I sponged over them using Soft Suede, this highlighted the rocks! I was so tickled by this! Normally you put your thinlit OVER your cardstock to cut it out, but this time I wanted the impression. Came out pretty didn’t it!?
I stamped the Bike in Fresh Fig, SU’s NEW In Color! I also stamped the basket in it! The dog’s scarf is Fresh Fig too!
Here is the card:
The thinlits I used are the bike frame, dog, basket, flowers and butterflies. Oh! And my favorite the rocks!
The butterflies are cut out of the Designer Series Paper Birthday Memories:
I LOVE this thinlit! Just cut out the butterfly and it has the antenna, wings and ALL! I HAD to add Dazzling Diamonds to make them look even prettier!
The Measurements are the normal card size with the Base being in Fresh Fig 8 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, scored at the 5 1/2″ line to make the card.
The Whisper White is 4″ x 5 1/4″ And scraps for all the cut outs! This was a really fun card to make!! I love how you can make so many different things be on the bike! Just change out your background and the stamp set can be for sooooo many different occasions!
I hope you enjoyed your visit today! I have more Blog Candy to give away on here tomorrow!! Be sure and visit so you can be in the drawing to win!

Last Friday, I had my Catalog Launch Party and I had two Prizes that those who attended could win!
The first one uses the Birthday Delivery bundle! LOVE this bundle, it is so much fun to play with! Did you know that the thinlits not only fit the STAMPED images, but also fits the images on the Designer Series Paper (aka DSP)?! It’s so versatile and you KNOW I love to get more from my stamping dollars!
I LOVE how the Chef has his can that will spray out the words “It’s your big day!” Isn’t that so cute! The balloons are fun to add, I had to ‘fussy cut’ the bear but it was super simple. I’m sorry to say that I gave this away BEFORE I measured it! I ‘think’ it was 8″ x 10″. I made it on Thursday and I had a winner for it on Friday! For the grass I sponged using Old Olive with a mask giving it that great wavy look!
For my other Prize I did a take on a card I made in another post:
I loved how this came out, and decided to see how it would look framed with all the seasons! I have to admit I was soooooo excited when I was done, and a little disappointed that I had to GIVE IT AWAY! LOL I used Dazzling Diamonds to make the water sparkle, especially on the winter one to make the water look icy! Here is a closer look at each Season:
The water is icy and the chair is sparkly with Dazzling Diamonds!
The trees are just budding with leaves and the Chair is in Pristine condition!
Summer time! The sun is shining! The blooms are out! The chair is a ‘little’ dirty, but we have that iced drink so we don’t care!!
Fall is here! The leaves are changing! The chair is almost ready to be cleaned for the end of the season!
Here is the full view! Notice the Dazzling Diamonds background paper? The measurements for this beauty is 11″ x 14″………..which is why I had to add the strips of Bermuda Bay. Can’t have a place that has a seam! There’s only ONE seam, but for symmetry I put two strips in!
For this Colorful Seasons framed art, I took off with the given name of the set……..Colorful SEASONS! I chose to make four scenes but having the scene stay the same but change it up to see the Seasons! I had a blast making this! I used Lovely as a Tree to be my backdrop, and the best thing is that you can make this stamp set look different just by using markers!
Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper #135315, 12″ x 11″ and 12″ x 2″
Bermuda Bay ( Brights Cardstock pack) #145409, 1/2″ x 11″ x’s 2
Basic Black #124267, 12″ x 9″
Bermuda Bay (see # above), 11 3/4″ x 8 3/4″
Pool Party (Winter) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Pink Pirouette (Spring) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Berry Burst (Summer) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
Cherry Cobbler (Fall) 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″
All Seasons are on Whisper White cardstock 4″ x 5 1/4″, ‘frame’ is Pool Party 5 1/4″ x 4″ with a 1/2″ cut out on inside all around.
Water is Soft Sky and Bermuda Bay for all seasons except winter which is Soft Sky and Whisper White.
Trees are colored with markers: Tree trunk is all Early Espresso, Leaves are Old Olive (spring and summer), Fall is Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry.
For the water I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen to make the water sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds on top.
For the winter tree branch thinlit I used the White Gel pen (retired) to make snow on the top, with Dazzling Diamonds over it to make the branches be snowy!
That’s it for the Dimensions!
I hope you like this post! This took me a couple days to create but only because I had to think it up! Once started, it took a couple of hours.
I will be making one for myself as soon as I am able! I will probably take this to the winner on Monday so will have to make one before then, just in case I need a life size reference!!
I have my Blog Candy to give away TOMORROW!! Wow, that went fast! You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page and I will put your name down each and every time you comment!

I have finished my FIRST YouTube video in quite a while! It’s been years! I was doing two videos every Tuesday for 3 years! They are over on Vimeo. But you can check out my video for this card here.
There are THREE things that I used differently, I’ll put a number by the line where they are, just in case you don’t want to read everything!
I did quite a few things with several products, but switched up their USUAL purpose! I LOVE coming up with new ideas, especially finding more than one way to use something!! That just means more bang for our BUCK!
For this card I used the Hardwood stamp set as a ‘door’ for my keyhole to look authentic. For the Keyhole, I put two framelits together. The 2nd from the outside of the Lots of Labels and the snowman from Snow Friends.
BUT for a keyhole I turned it upside down! Plus, on the card, I put the sentiment over the bottom of the keyhole to ‘hide’ the snowman! I hope you can see the keyhole and NOT the snowman!!
Then I cut out out the middle of the white cardstock so you can ‘peek’ inside! For that I used the 3rd framelit from outside in the Lots of Labels so the ‘keyhole’ can stack flat and still be adhered to the front.
2. For the screws on the front of the door around the keyhole I used the screws from the Urban Underground Embellishments (in the Occasions mini), BUT I colored them with the Gold Wink of Stella and immediately embossed with clear, since the color would just wipe off otherwise. This way I am all coordinating!! I also used the gold embossing powder to emboss the key so you (hopefully) will figure out that it’s a key hole!! Here is close up of the screws being all gold:
The sentiment is from Balloon Adventure and it says: Open Me Already! hahahaha I got such a kick out of making this card! Can you tell?
I attached (after fussy cutting the key) the gold sequin ribbon to the key and popped it up on the front of the card!!
3. To make the Gold line under the Sentiment I used the Tear & Tape under, made sure it was stuck down well, then tore off top, poured Gold Embossing Powder on it, and heat it! And it embossed! Didn’t know that would happen! Just thought I would try it. LOVE it, so glad I tried!
Ok, for the inside, I stamped the girl from Beautiful You, lining her up so she would peek through in the front. I stamped her with Early Espresso, then embossed with Clear EP (I tend to do that with SU! ink) because it stays wet long enough so I can do it! And it adds so much texture to your card!
For her dress I stamped it with versamark, then poured Heat & Stick onto the Versamark, heat it only until it gets shiny NO LONGER, or it will loose it’s stickiness! Once that is done, I poured Gold Glitter onto the Heat & Stick, shook off excess, then heat it ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS! This way it really adheres to it! Watch the video you will see how I rub on it and it stays!! I don’t use Heat & Stick very often, but I really love how great it works, think I’ll use it more often now! Here is the inside of the card:
I ran some of the Tear & Tape along bottom and put some more Gold Embossing Powder on it and heat it! Love how it really adds some shine to the card! Stamped my two inside sentiments ‘It’s your Birthday’ at the top and ‘Let’s celebrate!’ at the bottom, both in Early Espresso and embossed with clear!
She is so pretty in the gold dress!! I hope you liked my Unconventional ways of using product! Please leave me some feedback on what you think!
And just in case you didn’t get a good picture of the card, here it is again:
I really enjoyed doing this card, I saw the framelits put together like this on Pinterest, but she was making a Snowman Shaker Card. I saw it, and immediately saw the keyhole and not the snowman! That’s so weird. I guess my mind works in mysterious ways!! LOL
I hope to be making more blog posts and videos, so subscribe and hopefully you’ll catch them!
If you just came from Pam’s page, welcome to my page! If you started at mine, click on the names below to see what others have done for the Holidays! Enjoy!
Today I am showing you how I go about doing a Scrapbook Page by showing that you can make ANY size page depending what you like. I started off making a 6 X 6 page:
The red block is for putting your picture in. I LOVE handmade scrapbook pages! And the Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Christmas Magic is one of my FAVES! It’s so pretty and versatile! I made tags too with the sets I used for this page, check it out at the end of this post!
For the next part of the page I made an 8 1/2″ x 11″ page and placed the 6 x 6 on that one.
The White under the Santa and next to the snowman is where You put the picture on this part! I used the Santa from the Stamp set Cookie Cutter Christmas. This was so much fun to do! I stamped it on Vellum using Black ink and embossed it with clear. I then turned it over and colored the back, making sure I shadowed it. I put it on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and with my embossing tool from the Simply Scored Scoring Tool upside down (embossed side down) and rubbed the embossing tool over all the white pieces. This raises the vellum and makes it white. REALLY WHITE! It is so much fun to do this technique and looks great on sails and other stamped images that need to be white and fluffy.
This is what it looks like before you turn it over.
Once you turn it over you can really see the white is white! I did NOT use ANY ink on the white parts, that is all because the vellum changes to white when you press on it with the embossing tool.
Now, here is the finished page on 12 x 12 :
I die cut the ‘Merry’ from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits. I also stamped the bells from the Christmas Magic stamp set and embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder, then using my blender pen colored in Smoky Slate to ‘look like’ silver. But first I stamped the Swirl from Star of Light and ‘hung’ my bells from that.
If you notice under the snowman, I have three bells on white bakers twine, this is so they won’t fall off (my daughter is going to frame this with her Christmas pictures on the wall), and I wanted to make sure that no matter what they wouldn’t fall off. I made the white twine go through the paper and I tied a knot in the back.
This page, in person, is so pretty!! Have you ever made something and are impressed with how much better it came out than you thought it would when you started?!! That’s how I feel, I hope you like it too!!
Now, here are the tags that I made to go along with this gift:
I love the simple yet elegant feel of these! Which is perfect for something that you will want to make a lot of! I used the Scallop Tag Topper for all of these, the middle one is just a little bit shorter than the other two.
Here is the details that you might want to know!

So? That is what I am presenting for you on this blog hop! I hope you love them as much as I do! I would love to hear from you!!
I am having a Stampin’ Up! Sheltering Tree Class next month. We will be making framed Seasons art (this has a biblical verse inside, you can include it or not), four handmade cards with decorated envelopes inside and out AND the cost of the class covers YOU getting the stamp set and the Envelope Liner paper to take home with you along with the cards and Art!!
You get the class, cards, stamp set and liner paper, and what do you pay? Only $38!!
IF you already have the stamp set, just buy a stamp that is equal to the price!
Here are pictures of the cards and framed art. Psssssst! I even teach you how to make a mixture for the trees in the Winter Season!!
You can click on each photo and see them closer. Notice the hand stamped Winter card, hopefully you can see the shimmer! This uses my own concoction from SU! materials!
This is a Pre-Pay class, I want to have the class by the middle of September so the latest you can register is the first week in September!
This was really fun to make, I plan on giving this away for a present!
I can also do a video for each card, if anyone wants to do a class to go, and orders the same amount. This way even if you don’t live near-by or can’t make it to class, you can still enjoy making it at home in your own time!
Hope to hear from you soon!!
Learn how to make cards that won't end up in the trash!
