Margie V. recently asked me to make a cheat sheet for the Envelope Punch Board like I’m made for the Gift Bag Punch Board.  I’d made that one because I found the directions very confusing and I needed the cheat sheet to figure it out. Honestly, I think the hardest thing about the Envelope Punch Board is understanding you only need to measure for that very first “Punch and Score” step. After that it’s just a matter of turning and lining up the score line with the pointer. But the directions are covered up when you’re working with the punch board, so here’s the cheat sheet. If you print it on card stock, you can stand it up while you’re working. Then slip the cheat sheet under the pointer for storage.

Click here for the Envelope Punch Board Cheat Sheet. This seems to show up as a thumbnail, but if you click the image, it should show up as a full size file. You can then print or download. If you decide to print, you may want to make sure it prints in landscape.

The back side of the cheat sheet has directions for using the Envelope Punch Board to make boxes. I will post a video for that next week.

The Blended Seasons stamp set is a large set that comes in two cases. There seasonal stamps that make this set great to use all year. I’ve made cards coloring in the flowers with Stampin’ Blends and the Watercolor pencils, but I did a different technique for this card, stamping Whisper White card stock randomly with a stamp from Timeless Textures. I think the pattern really goes well with the curlicue pieces in the coordinating Stitched Seasons Framelits. Did you see the stitching on those Framelits? Yep! These dies put stitching on both sides of the cut, so whether you’re cutting out an opening, a layering piece, or an open frame like I did here, you will have stitching. I sure hope to see that show up in upcoming Framelits!!

We have a pond in our backyard and I love it! I love the peaceful sound of the waterfall. Right now the surface is covered with waterlilies in pink, yellow, and white. We have had herons and egrets who also love the pond for a totally different reason! Thankfully there are lots of places for the fish to hide!

I pulled out my shaving cream for the background. I love this technique and I think it’s perfect for this card. And there is a sneak peek of the Take Your Pick tool that is in the Holiday catalog. You’re definitely going to want one!!!

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.

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!
