Video: Interlocking Squares Quilt Card

Hi all!

A quick note for those that ordered the accessory shares from me last month – the BEE trinkets are back in stock!
I received them today and I’ll mail them out to you all on Monday!

On to my video this week….

Sadly the Well Suited Paper has been sold out!
I had already filmed this video but thought I’d still share as you can substitute lots of other papers and styles!
And many of you have the paper so here is an idea for you

Sometimes you just need a few little scraps and it turns into a card!

These are 6 squares from the Well Suited Designer paper (retiring at the end of the month)
Each one is cut 1-3/4″ x 1-3/4″
Watch how easy this goes together!





Thanks for stopping by!

Video: Using the In Color Shimmer Vellum

Hi All!

I had a request this week from Maria in Nebraska to come up with some projects using the new In Color Shimmer Vellum.
It’s fun to get a request to give me a little push using something new and play a bit!  (and little old school with some dry embossing with a stylus on the vellum brought back great memories)

Look at all that shimmer on the vellum!  It really is pretty, embossed or just plain.

Here’s my video this week using the shimmery vellum 2 ways and also a little Show & Share of some old vellum projects I found.
The recipe PDF Link for both cards is under the video

Video: Triangle Accent Layout

Someone asked me the other day about the Stitched Triangle dies and how much I used them.  Honestly, I hadn’t used them since I tried the Arrow Fold card with the goats (you can see that video HERE)

but then…

I needed an ‘anchor’ for some simpler, easy card layouts.  Of course I love a fun fold and cards that can do a back flip but there are times like this week I needed nice cards but not so involved it took days to get them done.
So the Triangle dies came to mind and I ended up really having fun with them.
(Watch the video for how to easily make without the dies also)



Here are the Triangle dies – there was a coordinating stamp set last year for them but it retired. Really they are great on their own for quilt cards and just an accent piece like I used them.

This one sent to me by Trish N:)

What is a hybrid embossing folder?
It’s really cool!  Cuts and embossing in ONE pass thru the machine.  Yep.

5 Tree Cards using new Canopy Dies

Trees are so wonderfully versatile, aren’t they?
I didn’t even realize I had made 5 cards til I went to film my video!

View/Print Recipe with Measurements PDF HERE

This is from the new bundle called Inspired Thoughts.
It’s on page 52 of the Stampin’ Up Annual Catalog

I love the all occasion sentiments !

Here are the 5 cards shown in my video:

It’s so sparkly in person!

In the video I said I needed to find a bird! I found one in the Curvy bundle!

I popped up the black trees and now they look blurry!  But it’s just an illusion

Here are a few more ideas from the home office:

The bunny is from the Nature’s Beauty on page 53

Clever the way the artist used the foliage as flowers on this one!
