We created these fabulous fun fold gift card holders for this week's Stamp with Me Tuesday. They have a circle at the top where you can stamp a sentiment or an image and a top flap that folds over the circle. Then, when you open the fun fold card, there is a place inside to tuck a gift card.
Using patterned paper like the Hues of Happiness, Abigail Rose or Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!® makes these fun fold cards easy to make! However, you could also stamp images or add additional decoration like I did with the cards using the Sweet Songbirds and Happiness Abounds stamp sets.
If you missed my live demonstration, you can watch the replay to see exactly how to make this card. You'll also find a FREE Quick-Reference Guide with all of the cutting dimensions for this fun fold design at the bottom of this post, so be sure to read all the way through. And of course there are links to all of the supply lists for these cards.
It's hard to believe that it is already the middle of May! Before you know it, Father's Day will be here. The He's the Man suite from Stampin' Up!® is perfect for creating Father's Day cards or other masculine cards. It has you covered! Birthday, anniversary, congratulations - whatever handmade cards you need to make for guys, the He's All That stamp set is perfect. I used it to create a variety of slim line cards.
The suite has the He's All That Stamp set, coordinating dies, Rustic Metallic Dots, and the He's the Man patterned paper. This Designer Series Paper pack is unique because it has 2 sheets of already die-cut images that just pop out. You don't even need the stamps to create great cards. (You can check out a no-stamping card that I made with the paper over here.) This patterned paper will also be amazing for scrapbookers!
I've got lots of samples, supply lists, and dimensions for you below. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Are you scared of watercoloring? Does it look like it's too difficult and only for "real" artists? With the right tools, watercoloring is much easier than it seems, especially with rubber stamps!
I used the new Happiness Abounds stamp set and the Perfectly Penciled patterned paper from Stampin' Up!® to create some easy watercolored cards.
If you want to see exactly how I did the watercoloring, be sure to watch the replay of the YouTube live that I did. I show you step by step how I colored the flowers for both of these handmade cards.
These new stamps and patterned paper are from the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. If you don't have one yet, be sure to pop over to my catalog page and request one. It's so gorgeous and filled with fabulous ideas!
I've got cutting dimensions and supply lists for you below, so, on y go! Let's get stamping.
This week's Mystery Stamping was based on a simple card sketch. I love card sketches for quick card making! These samples use the Garden Greenhouse, Ocean of Inspiration, Cactus Cuties, and Happiness Abounds stamp sets from Stampin' Up!® You'll find the cutting dimensions and supply lists below.
I hope you'll join me next Tuesday night at 8pm Eastern for my next Mystery Stamping event either on YouTube or in the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook group. I'll post the first clue on Monday evening with the cutting dimensions to create a card. You dig in your stash and prepare your supplies. Then, during the live card making event, I'll give you step-by-step instructions to create a handmade card.
