Card Class

Filed under: Projects — July 21, 2021 @ 3:17 pm

We had a great time at the July Card Class – both online and in-person garage stamping. All the pdfs and videos are posted in my customer/team private page for you to enjoy. Contact me through my Stampin’ Up! website to purchase the class kit for these 3 cards (while supplies last).

July Card Class:  Favorite Layout, Pinwheel Tower Fun Fold, Seascape Diorama Card

As you can see, I have been playing a lot with Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper (DSP). It’s always my favorite product, but especially this month as we have 9 different papers that are on sale. One of my favorites is the Hand-Penned DSP which we used in class for a Pinwheel Tower Fun Fold Card (above center). I also used it in my previous post to make 14 “Pick 6 Wonder” cards using a fun template.

I often cut my DSP in 5-1/4 x 4″ pieces, as they are so easy to layer onto cards (#loveitchopit). Here’s an easy tearing technique that you can do in either portrait or landscape orientation. Just add a bit of ribbon and a stamped sentiment.

Here’s another tearing technique card with the Pansy Petals paper. Another easy way to use these #loveitchopit pieces is to simple fold over a corner. I always love it when you can see some of the opposite side of the beautiful Stampin’ Up! paper.

Did you notice the sentiments on several of these cards? They were stamped and diecut with Many Happenings and the Messages die. This is a large background stamp and matching die that cuts out 19 sentiments at once! They and the coordinating Many Messages are perfect for your card making tool kit.

You can see a peek of the Message die in the above photo. I also used the Stitched Greenery Die and the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle for a stepped up card with the Hand-Penned paper. I used the paper as the actual folded piece for this card. It is 10-1/2 x 4 folded at 5-1/4″ adhered to a quarter sheet of Highland Heather Cardstock (5-1/2 x 4-1/4″) The Daffodil Delight piece is 5 x 3-3/4″ and was first run through to cut out the butterflies and then to cut the stitched leaves. the butterflies were then placed back in their places. So fun!

Above is the inside of my butterfly card along with some other fun combinations for the Many Happenings stamp and messages die. I wish I had used the Highland Heather side for the card front and the flower side for the inside!

I’ll share more Designer Paper ideas next time, but for now –

Happy crafting,

Kim Wilson
