As per my post yesterday, I made this card for a customer thank you and had leftover strips that I used on my card for Simple Stamping Techniques DT Blog post.
This morphed out of nowhere! I was playing around with the Scalloped Notecards (149610 pg 168)..had lots of ideas but wanted to do a traditional card. These notecards are for simple stamping use unless you step it up like Ive done.
I wanted to include some new In Colors and the gorgeous new In Color ribbon.
I just love this ribbon that comes in each of the new In Colors for 2019/2020..I used Terracotta Tile and Seaside Spray for this card.
My favourite Embossing Folder at the moment is the Lace 3D Embossing folder. Please note these carrying over 3D embossing folders are currently being reconfigured with the new manufacturer so not available at the moment. I will let you know when they are available. ALL of the New ones in this new catalogue are available. There is a red N (new) against the folders that are new.
So here’s my idea ..I used the front of the notecard on the outside, the back on the inside and the envelope on the inside as a gift voucher pocket.
Thanks for checking up on me ..been sick the last week with a cold and only able to craft yesterday and today.
This months Online Tutorial is now live and we are also blog hopping with a bonus project using the Bird Ballad suite! You can find this suite in our new Annual catalogue on pages 90-92.
For my tutorial I have done a Scrapbooking Layout but for this blog hop, I have done a fancy fold card. Here is the other sneak peek of the other tutorials.
I just love all of the elements of this suite so I got the lot!
So easy to purchase the whole lot too as there is a Product number for them all (152190).
This card is called a Dutch Door card. I got the template from one of team members but you can find a similar one here.
I made an envelope using the envelope punch board to match. I used the centre of a Bird Ballad laser cut card (149595) on my tutorial project so I was determined to not let this beautiful laser cut card go to waste. You can see what I did below.
Our tutorial bundle is available for free if you spend over $37 NZD with me or equivalent in the other currencies with the other members of the team. There are 6 amazing tutorials! If you are in NZ, you can also purchase the tutorials from me for $10.25 NZD. Email me for details!
Off we go on a blog hop…click on the little blue frog to check out the other Stamping Society Design Team members blogs.
This month the scrapbooking global blog hop is all about Masculine! Here is my Layout using a new DSP that will be available next month in the 2019/2020 Annual Catalogue (Wovens Threads DSP). I just love this DSP as it is vintage, feminine and masculine!
Heres my LO.
I also used Over the Moon Stamp set, Woven Heirlooms, Stitched Nested Labels dies and used a mask from the Pattern Party Decorative masks (144103)

Wow I have been busy with blog post after blog post lately.
This month the Simple Stamping Techniques Design Team are playing with Easel cards.
Now I needed a couple of customer gifts so I made these little easel cards using some Memories and More packs…first I used the Big Plans Card Pack (pg 196 AC 146863). I have just loved this kit. I did no stamping …all of the sticker elements were easy to layer and on a couple I mounted them onto each other or onto another card from the pack and cut out using punches or my trimmer…so this might be an idea for someone new to card making!
The other one I used was the Tea Room Memories and More Cards pack (pg 195 AC 147035) This coordinates with the Tea Room Suite on pages 14-15). For this project, I used the Treat Time set (pg 35 AC 146626) for all of the stamping and then embellished with the stickers in the pack. So quick and easy to do!
The cards are 4×6″ so all you need to do is score them at 1 1/2″ and 3″…fold over! Add another 3×4″ card to the first 1 1/2″ panel and voila your easel card is done.
All I did then was add a stopper down the bottom and I was done.
The envelopes are just half cut down normal Whisper White envelopes which I decorated. You could also make your own envelopes for these using the envelope punch board (pg 209 AC).
I tied them all up with some coordinating ribbon and popped them into a Half wide stamp case (pg 206 AC 127552). I love these cases for storage of a huge range of accessories…eg reinkers and embellishments.
Here’s a few more pics of the easel cards.
