I’ve seen quite a few of these cards and I really wanted to try one. My friend Jeanne showed me how and they are not nearly as complicated as they look. I used Just Add Text for the greeting, the gorgeous Layered Leaves Textured Impressions Embossing Folder for the background, and Flower Shop for the images. I was really pleased with the color combination as well: Dapper Denim, Pear Pizzazz, and So Saffron. Don’t wait as long as I did to try this layout!

This card is so quick and easy! The Happy Birthday Thinlit does all the work for you! I used the Foil Frenzy Specialty Designer Series Paper with just a peek of the Lemon Lime Twist card stock. I added a bit of interest with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder and then the gorgeous Basic Black ⅜” Shimmer Ribbon finished it off.

I also shared a way of labeling Washi Tape. If you haven’t noticed, I love having the product name, item number, page number, and coordinating colors (or products) on everything. My little labels seemed to fall off the Washi Tape. I’ve been hanging my Washi Tape on a chain… some people use large library rings. Suddenly it occurred to me that I could add a label to the chain. Problem solved!

17-18 Washi Labels

The shutter card is one of those fancy fold cards that look really complicated. It’s not really. It goes together really easy.

I recorded this video in early May and hoped to post it while you could still get the products. I was overjoyed that Cool Treats and Frozen Treats Framelits are in the new catalog. I am providing the directions as originally designed and with products you can currently order.

OnStage is a Stampin’ Up! convention where we see new products and get inspired with new techniques. It’s very exciting! And it’s also so very fun to see demonstrators we’ve met at previous events. And we also trade cards (or just card fronts) and other projects and those are called Swaps. I’m using these as my “Swaps” for OnStage Local in San Diego. I thought it would be fun to have the dragonfly fluttering in front of these dreamy and serene backgrounds. I think you would enjoy making this card too.

And if a Stampin’ Up! event sounds fun, and if you like saving money and learning and getting your hands on new products before they’re available, click here to find out how.

This is a quick gift that would look lovely on your Easter table or just a little treat gift. I used the That’s the Tag bundle. That’s the Tag has greetings for weddings, Mother’s Day, new babies, birthday, congratulations, thinking of you, and thanks. But I wanted it for Easter, so I used Teeny Tiny Wishes. That set has a greeting for just about everything!

This card is simple on the front, but used the Balloon Pop-Up Thinlits for the surprise inside. The Thinlits does all the work for you! So fun.
