Using patterned paper scraps in cards!

blog hop banner

Do you often think of ways of using patterned paper scraps in cards?  You know, when you use your patterned paper in card making the first few cards are easy, but as you start getting little strips it gets harder. Don’t you agree? 

And I don’t know about you, but I never feel like I just throw away the patterned paper scraps! I am always thinking, what if  I can incorporate it in a card later on? and so I end up with lots of little scraps. 

This is why, today I got very excited when I saw the challenge from Stefanie Pletscher, a fellow demonstrator in Canada. She gave us a sketch to use for the challenge, and you have been following me for a while, you know I heartfully believe in sketches to make your cardmaking process easier!

But I got even more excited, as the sketch is perfect for little scraps!!  you can see it below! 

Sketch to play

Using Sketches for Cardmaking

One of the thinks I love about sketches is that these give a framework to play with, but you can always change something about them that will make them unique. 

For instance as you are going to see in my card below, I changed the orientation, and while the original sketch is for portrait, I went for landscape. 

I also changed the heart for another rectangle and I used it for my sentiment rather than adding a banner as the sketch calls for.

So little changes like this, will always help make your card unique.

To exemplify my point above, I have another sample for this sketch with small changes as well, you can check that one here. On this card I followed the same orientation as the sketch, however instead of a heart I used the cute turtle punch and moved it to the side rather than the center.

So always feel free to changes things up and your will see how your cards will look unique every single time, even though you are using the same sketch over and over.  

Friendship Card using Patterned Paper Scraps!

For my version of this sketch, I used the Blackberry Beauty designer series paper, which is one of my favorite. 

I love the fall colors and the patterns. 

Using patterned paper scraps in your cards

For the rectangles, I actually used the rectangular postage stamp punch and cut four of them from my scraps, and when I glue these pieces I used both sides of the patterned paper, that way, it looks like I have two patterns, however it is actually both sides of the same designer series paper.

The sentiment comes from Little Delights stamp set, which has fun fonts for various occasions sentiments, so this one is a great set to have in your collection for sure!

And to finish off my card I added a bow and some gilded gems to pop up the gold foil from the designer series paper

Below you can find the full supply list for all the products I used for this card.  If you want to get any of these items just click on the pictures and these will take you to my online store.  I really appreciate your support 🥰

Color Combination 

As usual I used the colors from the designer series paper to get the color combination for my card. This is always the easiest way to come up with color combinations, and I am always surprised at how well this works. 

Also this generally helps you get out of your comfort zone and let you play with color combinations that you might have never put together. 

For instance the color combo from today, is probably a color combo that I would have never thought of.  See below the colors I picked.

Thank you card ideas using the Turtle Friends Bundle

Blog Hop banner

Are you looking for Thank you card ideas? If so, you are in for a treat!!  As today I am going to be sharing with you three cute Thank you cards that you will surely want to  make.

But before we start, let me tell you that  today I am participating in a blog hop where the team of the projects we are sharing is Thank you card ideas! So make sure you check all the participating blogs. I am sure you will get lots and lots of ideas that you will want to case right away! 

So let’s get started! 

Three Cute Thank You Card Ideas 

As you can see in the picture below, this time I used the Turtle friends bundle from the Annual Catalog with the You are Peach Designer Series Paper (DSP). 

These Thank You card ideas turned out really cute, and I loved how well the DSP coordinated with the cute Turtle Friends bundle from Stampin’ Up! 

Three cute Thank you cards using the turtle friends bundle from Stampin' Up!

Color Combination 

As usual I got my color combination from the DSP, and while this particular DSP is all about peaches, you can see that it looks really well with the Turtle set! 

Below you can see the color combination I picked for this paper pack 

I know I say this all the time, but it truly is the easiest way to get color combos for your cards, just pick a few colors and then pull everything you have in those colors to start playing with them! 

Thank You Card Ideas Details 

Fancy Fold Thank you card #1 

sketches to play   Fancy Fold - cute Thank you card ideas using the Turtle friends bundle from Stampin; Up!

Fancy Fold - cute Thank you card ideas using the Turtle friends bundle from Stampin; Up!

For this first card, as you can see it is a fun easy fun fold that you can make in no time! 

You just need to fold the card base in half and then the card front again in half, then it is just matter of embellishing the front. 

Just make sure you pay attention to where you are add adhesive when gluing the elements on your cards, as these have to be glued on the left side of the card front to not close your card shut. 

And to make this card even cuter, I added another scalloped rectangle for the inside and add the white cardstock and a piece of designer series paper to match the front. 

I love adding a small piece of white cardstock, whether it is this decorated, or just plain white cardstock for the area to write my message. This helps me not get overwhelmed so I can quickly address it without feeling like I have to write a novel. I noticed that just doing this small change helped me in mailing cards more frequently.  

 Thank You Card #2

sketches to play   Cute Thank you card ideas using the Turtle friends bundle from Stampin; Up!

This sketch is a great one for you to use scraps of designer series paper as you just need to punch out the rectangles using the postage stamp punch and mix and match the patterns, so if you have a lot of little scraps this is a great sketch to use. 

Thank You Card #3 

sketches to play   Cute Thank you card ideas using the Turtle friends bundle from Stampin; Up!

I love this layout a lot and I think I have been using it a lot lately! I this this is a great one for you combine patterns from the paper pack of your choice. 

Also did you noticed that the turtle is stamped in the Soft Sea Foam and then just added little details with the stampin’ bends?  this is an easy way to put together this cute little turtle. You can see exactly how this one is colored and assembled as I popped out the shell with dimensionals. So make sure you watch the video tutorial for these cards.

Saleabration is back!

Did you know that Saleabration is back?? If you did not, oh my goodness!!!  you are going to love it!!

This is the best promotion we have in the Stampin’ Up! world!, as you get FREE products every time you place an order of $50. 

But it gets even better, if your order $100 then you get more FREE products, and if you spend $150 then you get even more FREE products plus host rewards, so it gets better and better the more you spend!..

In summary for every $50 increment, you get to select items for FREE.. there are NO limits on this promotion.. and this promo runs between August 3rd and September 30th!

So if you want to check out the Saleabration broachure you can do so HERE to see what you can get for FREE when you purchase with me! 

Saleabration Details 

One thing to know, is that there are 2 levels of products you can get for FREE. You can identify them by looking at the icons that says “FREE with $50 purchase” or “FREE with $100 purchase”. 

As an example if you order $100, you can pick 2 items from the “FREE with $50 purchase” OR 1 item from the “FREE with $100 purchase”. 

FREE Saleabration items with $50 purchase

FREE Saleabration items with $100 purchase

And finally, another thing to note is that these items are while supply last! So get first the items that you know we don’t manufacture, like paper, or dies.  As we know that once those items are gone are gone for good.  

With Stamps I would think we are safer, as we manufacture those items in the states!

Another Saleabration Perk 

One of the best perks that you need know is that during Saleabration you get even more bang for your money when you get the starter kit, and this time is really good! 

If you have a long wishlist (which I am sure you do, since we just launched our new July-Dec Mini Catalog) then getting the starter kit is the best way to go and here are the reasons:

  • You select $125 worth of products from your wish list and only pay $99 + tax
  • There is NO Shipping cost (so this is 10% additional savings)
  • You get a FREE past Paper Pumpkin kit in your Starter kit
  • All you subsequent orders are AT LEAST 20% discount
  • During Saleabration you get a FREE Bundle from the ones listed in the picture below!

Get a FREE bundle from this list when you purchase the Starter kit during Saleabration

Soooo goooood, right??

I mean you can get up to $60.25 on a FREE bundle, in addition to the $125 of products that you selected in your kit, and still only pay $99 + tax and NO Shipping..

You just cannot get wrong.. 

But you might be thinking, there might be some funny business here..  The reality is there is not.. 

When you get the starter kit:

  • There is not obligation to do this as a business, the option is always there if you want to pursue it later on
  • There is no pressure at all, from either me, my team or Stampin’ Up! 
  • If just get the starter kit because it is a good deal you can do so! 
  • There are no penalties if you decide not to purchase anything after getting your kit, though you might want to, as you get at least a 20% discount on your crafting supplies
  • You get the same perks as when you are a customer on top of your discount, like host rewards, discounts, etc
  • Early access to Stampin’ Up! products and catalogs, so you can preorder new products before anyone else
  • Access to exclusive Stampin’ Up! events (live or virtual)

But without further ado, lets show our Saleabration project for the day!!

Penguin Playmates – Christmas Cards 

I know the introduction about Saleabration was too long, but I wanted to make sure knew all about it!! 

I also know you want to see the projects for this blog hop featuring one of the cutest items from the Saleabration Offering! and this is the Penguin Playmates Designer Series Paper!!! 

Get these cute cards kit featuring Saleabration items when you place an order using Host code V4F43HJK

Are these not the cutest penguins and friends?? I just love everything about this designer series paper (DSP)! 

If you took place on my DSP Challenge last month, you know now that this type of paper pack is the BEST, as you can cut out images to use as embellishments in your cards (like I did in these). But also there are patterns in the paper pack that you can use easily for backgrounds in your cards.. 

So you can use this DSP to create the cutest cards ever! 

Color Combination

As usual I used the colors in the DSP to come up with the inspiration for my cards. This is the easiest way to pick up colors to create your cards, so if you ever struggle with color combinations, give it a try to get a few colors from the paper pack!

I promise you, it will be super easy! 

Is this color combination amazing or what? I mean, I might be biased since it has purple and I love Purple! 

Card Details 

And here you will see in more details the cards from this set.  And if interested below you will see the video tutorial for these cards. 

Christmas Card #1 – Fun Fold

As you can see this DSP coordinated beautifully with the brand new Penguin Place Bundle, and in this card I actually stamped the bow tie from this set onto this cute little penguin. also this penguin coordinates with the punch, so you can punch this image rather than cutting it with your scissors. 

The sentiment is from the penguin place stamp set, and the labels are from the Stitched So sweetly dies. 

Also, please note that this card is an easy fun fold, but it always has a wow factor.. and talking about a wow factor did you notice that iridescence snowflake?? this is from the Wonderful Snowflakes pack! and as you can see, it adds so much to your card.. so definitely a must have if you ask me. 

The ribbon I used for this card is the one from the Expressions in Ink suite, and it is the Just Jade & Gold Braided Ribbon. It just color coordinate perfect with this DSP, don’t you think?

Christmas card #2 – Gift Card Holder

This second card, is actually a gift card holder, you can see the pocket on the second picture. This is as well very simple to put together, so if curious, you can watch the video tutorial below.. 

For the labels I used the scalloped contours dies, which are becoming a favorite of mine to be honest!  And if you look closely you will see that I embossed the soft sea foam cardstock using the brand new Timber 3D embossing folder.

Christmas Card #3 – Friendship card

This super cute card uses the Wintry 3D embossing folder for the background! and thought you can’t really see it in the picture I added a light hand of Fresh Freesia ink with the blending brushes. This helped a lot in popping up the snowflakes in the background. 

An if you look closer I used the opal rounds as snow balls in the Polar bear!

Thank You Cards 

As I was mentioning in the beginning I decided to use the You’re a Peach suite for my thank you cards as this suite goes really well for Summer. 

And since I need to be sending the thank you cards during this time, it made so much sense for me.. Do you do your thank you cards based on the time of the season you are going to send them?

You're a Peach Suite

The colors in this suite are so beautiful, and the designer series paper and the bundle coordinates really well together. This is one of the things I love from Stampin’ Up! in all honesty.. All their products coordinate really nice making it easy to create cards in a breeze.

See below!

If you ever find yourself struggling with color combinations, give this a try!

You will see how easy it is to get color combos from DSP.

Christmas Card Details & Tips!

For this card I wanted to get lots of layers and dimension, so I added several layers and texture in each layer as you can see in more detail in the below picture. 

If you look closer you will see that the basic white cardstock was embossed used the macramé 3D folder. 

Easy and Quick Christmas card idea in july using the Tidings of Christmas suite from Stampin' Up!

The scalloped rectangle came from the dies from the scalloped contours dies and the labels for the sentiment came from  the Hippo & Friends dies! 

One tip I want to share with to maximize your paper is to cut out the different layers from the same cardstock piece. This is very handy when you have other papers in between the layers. 

You can see what I mean in the pics below.

Maximize you paper by cutting the different labels from the same piece of paper       Maximize you paper by cutting the different labels from the same piece of paper

Also for the stocking, there are two stockings images in this set. One stocking is more like a bold image and the other is a line image.  And while I love how they both look, i thought it would look even better when you cut the top on one and add it to the other one as you can see in the next set of pictures.

Christmas Cards for 2021

blog hop banner

Have you started working on your Christmas cards already? if you are still trying to get ideas or have not decided yet on what to do this year, then you are going to be in for a treat! As today we are going to share with you Christmas cards to help you get ready for the holidays!!  

So hop with us and visit all participating blogs! I am sure you’ll get lots of ideas and inspiration to get you going! 

Let’s get started!

Christmas Card

Since we are featuring Christmas projects for this blog hop, I decided to showcase the Tidings of Christmas Suite from the Annual Catalog. This suite has an elegant designer series paper (DSP) and a super cute bundle called Tidings & Trimmings. 

The die set in this bundle has a great set of stars that can get die cut and use as a standalone piece or as the focal point in your cards! And this is exactly how I used it on my card today as you can see below. 

Learn how to make an easy Christmas card using the Tidings of Christmas suite from Stampin' Up!

Color Combination 

As usual, I followed the DSP to pick a color combo. This has been by far one of the easiest ways to get color combinations for your cards. 

So if you ever struggle with color ideas give this a try! Pick a DSP pack and then pay with the colors included in the pack! 

By the way, if you have not heard yet, there is an awesome promotion during July where selected pattern papers are at 15% discount! And the Tidings of Christmas DSP is part of that promotion, so if you have thinking about this paper pack, this month is perfect to add it to your collection! 

Think about it, if you get the Tidings of Christmas DSP, you could start making your Christmas cards right away! 😉 Ready to get your favorites DSP? then go to my store and put them in your cart.

Christmas Card Details & Other Information 

Below you can see the inside of this card, as you can see this is an easy fancy fold. 

For this fancy fold you just need to fold the card base in half and then the front in half again and you are done!  super easy right?

Also as you can see for the inside of this card I stamped the star and the sentiment. The star is with the Soft Sea Foam, mainly because I wanted a light color under the sentiment.  And the sentiment is in Early Expresso. 

For the sentiment in the front I used Evening Green and then punched it with the dual oval. 

One thing to note is that the detail star in the front can be glue down two ways:

  • Add adhesive sheets to the back of the Cherry Cobbler Cardstock and then die cut – this will create a sticker so it is easy to glue it to the green star. 
  • Or you can due cut the Cherry Cobbler star and then add it using the fine tip glue pen, which is what I did on this one 

Both ways will work perfectly, so just pick the one that is easiest for you!

Also beneath the green star I added the elegant trim to pop a bit of gold in the card.
