Video Tutorial: Angle Cut Cards

This week’s Stampin’ Sunday video will show you how to get four cards from one sheet of 6×6″ Designer Series Paper. If you’re like me, and trying to use up lots of 12×12″ DSP at this time of year, you can get sixteen cards from one 12×12″ sheet! And these cards don’t need a lot of extra supplies, either, so they are great for using up your stash.

You’ll need:

Four cardbases: 5.5 x 8.5”, scored in the centre
Four pieces white/vanilla cardstock, 4 x 5.25″
One piece contrasting cardstock, 6.25 x 6.25″
One piece of Designer Series Paper, 6 x 6″

Once you’ve made your own angle cut cards, be sure to share a photo in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Happy Stampin’!

Product Spotlight: Ice Cream Corner

I scream, you scream, we all scream to make adorable cards with items from the Ice Cream Corner suite!!

I am definitely a huge fan of ice cream, and so this stamp set and in fact the whole Ice Cream Corner suite jumped out at me right away. But I don’t think I’m biased when I say this stamp set and co-ordinating punch are SO fun for a huge variety of cards! Birthday cards for all ages and genders, thank you cards, a gift tag or gift card holder, and more – this bundle has you covered! For even more fun and creativity, add the co-ordinating Designer Series Paper, and your projects will really pop!

With summer just around the corner, I’ve decided Sweet Ice Cream will be the featured stamp set for the June Creativity to Go class. Register for the class and you’ll receive this stamp set PLUS all the supplies and tutorials to make five cards with your new stamp set – so, you’ll be all set for summer birthdays and other sweet occasions! You’ll also get access to an optional Zoom crafting class where we’ll meet and assemble the cards. Anyone in Canada is welcome to subscribe by following this link – the registration deadline is June 10th.

As soon as I bought these items, I used them right away to make a very special birthday card for my daughter, Gwen, who turned 13 last month. She shares my love of ice cream, plus like the card says she is SO cool (she is a teenager after all!) so I knew this card would be perfect for her. You can learn how to make this fun pocket card right here on my blog.

This fun and fabulous card also doubles as a gift card holder! I learned how to make it from a tutorial by Catherine Brown. The tutorial, along with 37 others, was part of a tutorial bundle created by demonstrators all over the world, using products from the Spring Mini catalogue. If you’d like to receive this tutorial bundle or a similar one for free, all you need to do is place an order with me!

One of the things I love about the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper is that it includes papers printed with ice cream cone patterns and swirly ice creamy shapes. In the card above, I’ve punched the cone and the ice cream scoops from the DSP with the Ice Cream Builder punch – no stamping required! In the card below, I stamped the scoops and the sprinkles in a variety of colours. Which look do you prefer?

Another way to create fun ice cream scoops is to punch them out of Rainbow Glimmer Paper! How gorgeous are these sparkly scoops?

Now that you’ve seen a few projects with this wonderful stamp set, I hope you’ll join me for the June Creativity to Go class. Remember, for just $29 you’ll receive the stamp set and prepared supplies and tutorials to make five sweet cards!

Happy Stampin’!

Tutorial: Pocket Card

My teammate Dianna showed us all how to make this wonderful card at a recent Mystery Stamping night. (If you haven’t joined us for Mystery Stamping yet, please check out the details here!) I had a fun time playing with the Ice Cream Corner suite to create this card.

Here are the measurements:

2 pieces of 4.25 x 11″ cardstock (same colour)
Another piece of cardstock (can be same or different): 3.75 x 5.25″
White cardstock: 3.5 x 5″
Designer Series Paper:
4 x 5″
12 x 1.5″, scored at 5-5/8 and 11.25″

If you wish, use a corner rounder punch on the top two corners of your white cardstock and your cardstock mat.

For each of your large cardstock pieces, you are going to cut diagonally from the centre score line to one corner. I’ve scored these lines below so you can see where I’m going to cut.

Once you’ve cut these two lines, here are the shapes you’re left with.

Use adhesive to attach the two pieces together, overlapping the rectangular panels in the centre. Now your cardbase looks like this.

Cut your piece of DSP diagonally, corner to corner.

Attach each DSP triangle to one of the flaps of your card. Now the hard part: Deciding which flap will go in front.

Run adhesive along the bottom of your centre panel and fold closed the flap you DON’T want in the front, attaching it.

Now apply adhesive in a triangle as below, to the front of the closed flap. Fold closed the other flap – and you’ve created a pocket!

Stamp and decorate your white cardstock, which will go in the pocket of your card. If you like, it’s fun to put something that sticks up above the top edge – this will be a ‘handle’ for the recipient to pull this piece out of the pocket.

Mat the white piece on your other cardstock, and insert it into the pocket.

Fold, attach, and decorate your DSP belly band strip as desired.

I’m really pleased with how the finished card turned out! I’m going to give it to my daughter, who is turning 13 (!!!) in a few weeks.

Here’s another example of a pocket card, this time using the Forevery Greenery suite. Note that this one does not have a ‘pull tab’ on the top edge of the card; you can choose to add one, or not.
