Trifold Birthday Card

Have you ever had this happen to you?  You see a card in a store, you really like it, and you know you can make this card using Stampin' Up products.

This card had a special fold, so it took me a while searching Pinterest and You Tube to find the exact fold I was looking for.  I finally found several versions of what was referred to as the Trifold card.  Thi is my version.

The card is made using a 12 by 12" piece of Whisper White card stock, which ends up making 4
 of these cards

Score the 12 by 12 card stock at 4 and 8"; Turn  and cut the card stock at the 6" mark (cutting the paper in half). Each half makes 2 cards.

Take one of  the halves and put the other aside.

With the 6" side facing up, measure 1" in from the left outside edge of the top and make a small pencil mark.  Do the same at the bottom, making a mark 1" in from the right outside lower edge

Line up both marks on the trimmer (at an angle) and cut into 2 pieces..


Taking a 12 by 12" piece of Sweet Soiree DSP I trimmed off 1/8" from each end , and using the above directions I made a "liner" trifold - and adhered it to  the Whisper White base.

The back of the card with stamped with the Distressed Dot background stamp using Marina Mist ink.

The trim on the top was made by punching Blushing Bride card stock using the Decorative Edge punch,

Decoration on the inside was done using the Sweet Soiree Memories & more card pack as well as images from Color Me Happy coloured with Stampin' Blendabilities. Close up pictures are below.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Color Me Happy, Perfect Happenings (retired), Distressed Dot Background
Inks:  Black Memento, Stampin Blendabilities
Papers:  Whisper White, Sweet Soiree DSP, Sweet Soiree Memories and More Card Pack, Blushing Bride
Accessories:  Decorative Edge punch, 2 1/2" circle punch,  1 3/8" circle punch. dimensionals, scoring tool, stampin up trimmer.

I will make a tutorial ( pictoral) on my Tutorial blog in the next couple of days.  Leave me a comment if you would like to see one.

A Token of Love - Hand Stamped Sentiments # 283

I'm sorting my stamps for a Stamp Sale next month and came across this cute little non SU stamp set of a young lad presenting a girl with some flowers for Easter.  It seemed perfect to use with the sketch challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments here

I used the Stamparatus to stamp this cute little image and then coloured it with Stampin' Blendabilites and watercolor pencils. After trimming this art piece to 2 3/4 by 2 1/2" it was matted with Marina Mist and added it to the card front with dimensionals.

The card base is Marina Mist, layered with Whisper White which has the "dots" from the retired stamp set "Gorgeous Grunge" stamped on it with Marina Mist ink.

On the left side a 1 1/4 by 5 1/4" piece of Sweet Soiree DSP edged on one side with a small strip of Marina Mist was added  to the card front. Some 3/8" silver metallic edge ribbon was attached around this strip and a bow made with this ribbon added at the top of  the art piece.

The Word Window punch was used to punch the sentiment which was matted with some Marina Mist punched with the Modern Word Label punch.

Tiny flowers were added to the art piece with tiny pearls in the center.

I added some glitter to the flowers and ribbon in her hair.

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  A Token of Love for You (Rubberstamps), Gorgeous Grunge, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Inks:  Black memento, Stampin' Blendabilites, Watercolor pencils
Papers:  Marina Mist, Whisper White, Sweet Soiree DSP
Accessories:  3/8" Silver Edge Ribbon, Dimensionals, pearls, Word Label Punch, Modern Word Label Punch, gold glitter.

Apron of Love Treat Holder

This stamp set makes a perfect little treat holder.  I used two of the inserts from the Sweet Soiree Memories and Card Making  Pack to die cut the Apron front and back.

The box insert was made using Rich Razzelberry card stock, as was the apron pocket.
Old Olive card stock was used to die cut the scissors and hand cut the leaves to the yellow flowers , which were fussy cut from the remainder of the Sweet Soiree Memories and More card pack  These were added to the pocket with dimensionals.

No treats in the box yet -give it time. This is my prototype.
My plan is to make one more like Easter
