Santa’s Sleigh Z Fold

Today’s card is a sparkly  Z Fold Santa’s Sleigh card, another from my White Christmas card class.

I had a lot of fun putting it together but cutting for a class was quite a different matter – lol.   Glitter all over the desk after cutting the reindeer, trees and sleigh.  I love the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP and incorporated the sheet with the snowflakes onto the card.  There are so many other beautiful sheets in this Designer Series Paper package that I’m looking forward to using.

I cut some Silver Foil snowflakes using the snowflake thinlit from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  I love working with the foil paper as they cut like butter and they added a little extra punch to the card.

Z Fold cards are very easy to make and they so impressive!   Cut the card stock 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.  Cut the band 1 1/2″ x 11″ and also score at 2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″.  The base card has the long side face up.  Just reverse the band so that the long side is at the back of the card.

The rest of the layers are cut:

  • 5 1/4″ x 4″, 2 1/2″ x 4″ (2 x) (Silver Foil)
  • 5″ x 3 3/4″, 2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″ (2 x) (Year of Cheer DSP)
  • 5 1/4″ x 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 2″ (2x) (Silver Foil)
  • 5″ x 1″, 2 1/4″ x 1″ (2X) Year of Cheer DSP

You can purchase the items to make this card at my online store HERE.

SUPPLIES:

  • Paper:  Whisper White, Silver Foil, Year of Cheer Specialty DSP, Gold Glimmer Paper, Silver Glimmer Paper
  • Accessories:  Santa’s Sleigh Thinlits, Seasonal Layers Thinlits; Silver Cord (retired) – optional, Glue Dots, Tombow Liquid Glue or Fine Tip Glue Pen

Naturally Eclectic CD Mini Album

If you’ve been a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for a number of years, do you recall when we made some altered albums using this CD album cover?

We bought them from ULine and in the case there must have been either 100 or 500 of them and while we shared among the demonstrators, I still have a bunch left even though I’ve had a couple of classes with them.

It was time to have another class and for this class, I added some pages with inserts, a waterfall etc.   We used the Naturally Eclectic DSP and the Eclectic Layers thinlits.

My sample used the Lemon Lime colors.

The ladies could choose the Lemon Lime color combo or the Berry Burst/Fresh Figs combo.

Here’s Pauline’s cover.

Carole and Janet chose the Berry Burst/Fresh Figs colors.

 I didn’t get a chance to take a picture of Diane’s but she chose the Lemon Lime colors for her album.  I’ll share with you some of the pages in the next few days.

Thanks for stopping by and happy stamping – still hot and muggy – ugh!

Colorful Seasons Bundle

Another very cool bundle coming on June 1 is the Colorful Seasons Bundle.  Colorful Seasons stamp set and the Season Layers Thinlits dies make up this neat bundle.  Only 11 days away before the new catty is live!   But who’s counting?

Also co-ordinating with this bundle is the Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack and today’s card uses all three of the items.

The card base is Dapper Denim cut 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at  5 1/2″.  I trimmed down one of the sheets of the Color Theory DSP Paper Stack to 3″ x 4 1/2″ and adhered it to a Basic Black mat cut 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″.

On the DSP I used a mask to sponge the sun with Daffodil Delight classic ink.  The birds are from High Tide stamped with Black Archival ink.  I used the Season Layers thinlits to cut the chair as well as the cool drink of lemonade.  The sentiment is also from Colorful Seasons.  I love the peaceful image of the card.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps:  Colorful Seasons (available June 1), High Tide
  • Paper:  Dapper Denim, Basic Black, Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack (available June 1), Daffodil Delight
  • Ink:  Black Archival, Daffodil Delight

Lovely Friends Stamp Set and Lovely Laurels Thinlits

A preview of a fantastic bundle coming on June 1 is the Lovely Friends and Lovely Laurels Thinlits.  Do you like pop-ups?   Then you will love this bundle!

Here’s today’s card.

I started with a Whisper White base cut 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.  The Lemon Lime Twist layer is cut 5″ x 3 3/4″ and the Whisper White focal layer is cut 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″.  I inked up the large sentiment with Lemon Lime Twist classic ink and then tapped the Tranquil Tide classic ink stamp pad on an angle over the sentiment randomly.

The flowers are stamped in Peekaboo Peach and Daffodil Delight and the leaves are cut out with one of the thinlits from the Lovely Laurels Thinlits in Old Olive.  I added some Wink of Stella over the flowers and finished them with a pearl.

The Lovely Laurels Thinlits have these pop up pieces to make a laurel wreath and banners.  I cut out the laurel with Lemon Lime Twist card stock and the banner with Tranquil Tide card stock.  There is also another sentiment banner thinlit and after stamping the sentiment on Lemon Lime Twist card stock using Tranquil Tide classic ink, I ran it through the Big Shot.

Here’s a closer view of the inside of the card.The Lovely Friends bundle, Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide card stock and classic ink pads will all be available on June 1.   But before it starts, don’t forget to the retiring products will be leaving on May 31!

Happy Valentine’s Day – Sneak Peek

LoveHappy Valentine’s Day!

My Valentine’s card uses one of the soon to be released Sale-A-Bration items available starting February 21.


Glimmer Paper! 12 sheets of 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper in Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron and Sweet Sugarplum – I love them and this Bermuda Bay glimmer paper is absolutely gorgeous!

I used the “line” thinlit from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits to cut out the portion at the top of the Whisper White. Added some of the glimmer paper behind it and attached it back into the card. The hearts were made with the Sweet & Sassy Framelits and the sentiment is from Love Sparkles.

There will be two other stamp sets in the second release of Sale-A-Bration being offered and I’m sure you will love them.

Sale-A-bration ends on March 31 and while it seems a way off, trust me, time flies and if you don’t want to be disappointed in choosing your Sale-A-Bration items, be sure to place your qualifying orders ($60 exclusive of tax and shipping) to ensure that you’ll get the items you want.
