I’ve been meaning to try this Bridge Fold layout. I think it’s very clever. I have seen some with a bridge that can fold down to make a kind of table. It’s great for a barbecue, kitchen stove, dresser, or that kind of thing. I went simple with just a vine. I used Animal Outing. I just love all the animals in this set! I thought the giraffe worked best, looking over the vine bridge.

My friend thought this card was going to be a lot of work. She imagined we’d be tearing and pasting all the little red (Cajun Craze) dots, but the Framelits did all the work for us. If you don’t have a Big Shot, you could substitute a bit of the coordinating Designer Series Paper over the side and bridge panels and just cut out the giraffe’s head with Snips.

Mix Detailed with Love, Graceful Glass Designer Vellum, and the Stamparatus, and you’ve got yourself a beautiful card. I actually changed the design up a bit for the video. My original is shown on the left and the one I did for the video is on the right. I have seen some gorgeous cards using the Stamparatus Hinge Step where the image faded from the top to the bottom. But those images were bigger and bolder, so there was only room for stamping three times. It works a lot better with just three.

The watercolor technique is perfect with the Touches of Texture stamp set. I used the colors in the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper. I think this card would work for just about any event and the sentiments in Another Wonderful year give you lots of options.

I designed this card with the new stamper in mind, but I couldn’t help myself. I had to add a bit more texture with the Subtle Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder. The pattern is so subtle, it’s difficult to photograph. Stampin’ Up! used to sell plain and textured card stock and this folder adds a similar texture. Of course, using the embossing folder means you will need a Big Shot, something the new stamper may not own. You could certainly use Watercolor Paper instead of the regular Whisper White Card Stock I used. That would give you the texture without the Big Shot.

I think Rooted in Nature is one of my favorite stamp sets in the 2018-2019 catalog. It has all the qualities of the beloved Lovely as a Tree with the added benefits of coordinating Framelits. It’s great for masculine cards. It can be used for Christmas and really any season. I shared a similar card a while ago, but hadn’t made a video. I made it at my in-house SIP Together, so it was time to make the video.

Cake Soirée is such a beautiful stamp set and the coordinating Thinlits mean no “fussy cutting” for this card. Add a few extra score lines to the card base, add the layers in a different way, and you’ve got a fancy fold card! But it’s no more difficult than that. I love the Share What You Love Specialty Designer Series Paper too. The paper and the Pearlized Doilies add a subtle sparkle that will make any birthday happy!
