For Mystery Stamping last night we made another fun fold card. It was a little tricky to explain in words, but when you see it put together and you have the cutting dimensions, it's easy to put together. If you'd like to join us next week for Mystery Stamping, be sure to join the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook group. For these sample cards, I used the Sending Sunshine, You Are Amazing, and Field of Flowers stamp sets as well as the Artistry Blooms, Playing with Patterns, and Butterfly Bijou patterned papers. All of the supplies are from Stampin' Up! You'll find the cutting dimensions and supply lists below, so on y go! Let's get stamping.
Last night was the December Card Class & Game Night. On the last Tuesday of each month, I offer a virtual card class in the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook Group. (If you'd like to join us for the January class, register here.) I choose a different stamp set or two each month and for December, I chose the So Much Happy stamp set and dies. This is a fabulous all-around stamp set for making birthday cards as well as other celebratory cards. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Get New Papers when you Join Stampin' Up!
I remade the last card using Pacific Point and Granny Apple Green instead of Melon Mambo and Gorgeous Grape. For the patterned paper, I used the new 6" x 6" patterned paper that will be available in the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog. You can get these awesome patterns now when you purchase the Stampin' Up! Starter Kit!
Have you seen the Zany Zebra stamp set? This is a perfect stamp set for beginners with a variety of sentiments and a little easy coloring. But, it's also a fabulous stamp set for experienced stampers as well. Today, I have two cards to share using the Zany Zebras stamp set, one has a definitely zany zebra and the other has a zebra who's a little more straight laced. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
I embossed the happy birthday sentiment with white embossing powder on Basic Black cardstock. I tied a bow of black bakers twine and placed it under the sentiment. I pulled the black baker's twine from a past Paper Pumpkin box. (One of the awesome things about getting Paper Pumpkin in the mail is getting embellishments that aren't available in the catalogs!)

Wild & Crazy Zebra Card Idea
My second zebra is a kind of a punk zebra with his rainbow mohawk and stripes. All he needs is an earring. I stamped this zebra with Tuxedo Black Memento ink as well and colored it with Stampin' Blends alcohol markers in a rainbow of colors - Poppy Parade, Pumpkin Pie, Mango Melody, Daffodil Delight, Granny Apple Green, Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay, and Highland Heather. I added a little Gray Granite in the white areas of the zebra.
