Jar of Love Note Card

It's Minute Monday time!! For the second week in a row, I've chosen the Jar of Love stamp set for a quick and easy card. I chose to make this card with a love theme, but you could easily substitute the greetings "friend", "thanks" or "hello", all included in the same set. I'll show you my tips and tricks in my video tutorial above.

Foxy Friends Flip Card

My downline Susan inspired me to design this card. She wanted to create a flip/swing card using the layering circle framelits and I couldn't find a tutorial to show her, so I created my own. This flip card has been specifically designed so that the tree stump from Foxy Friends can fit underneath the flip area. If you want to learn how to make it just watch the video tutorial above.

I love how this card is very simple and unassuming on the outside, but when you open it up, it's got a surprise. I tried to create a lot of energy using bright colors, but you can choose whatever colors you like for the inside fox, the balloons and confetti. Doesn't the fox look like he's having fun?

Happy Stamping!!

Quick Reference
  • Card Base: Cut a 6-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Thick Whisper White Card Stock.
  • On the 6-1/4" side, draw pencil lines at 2-1/2" and 3-1/2" marks.
  • Place 2nd largest Layering Circle Framelit centered on the 2-1/2" line, about 3/8" from the top (see photo above).
  • Place the edge of the top cutting plate along the 3-1/2" pencil line and run through Big Shot.
  • Rotate the card stock piece 180 degrees. Place the edge of the top cutting plate along the 2-1/2" pencil line and run through Big Shot a second time.
  • Erase the pencil lines.
  • Score along the 2-1/2" and 3-1/2" lines, omitting the circle.
  • Fold along the score lines and stamp as desired.

Swirly Bird Sailboat Card (CASE-ing Tuesday #52)

It's CASE-ing Tuesday again. Today's card is on page 22 of the Stampin' Up 2016-2017 catalog. Catalina and I pick a card to CASE each week. Then we share them on our blogs and invite you to play along on our Facebook group. To check out Catalina's CASE-ing Tuesday card see HERE!

Would you like to CASE along with us? Join our CASE-ing Tuesday Facebook Group and you will be able to play along. I hope you will join us.

What is CASE-ing? The acronym CASE stands for Copy And Share Everything. When you CASE you can change nothing, a few things, or sometimes the card you are CASE-ing turns out looking completely different than the original.

For this CASE-ing challenge I added the Swirly Bird Stamp Set and used the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set only for the greeting. I also changed the color scheme from Sweet Sugarplum to Dapper Denim. I love how this card turned out and I think this layout would work well for other images. If you want to see how I made the card from start to finish, just click on the video (the first photo in this blog post).
