Favorite Occasions Catalog Item for Kylie’s International Blog Hop

I’m excited to be a part of Kylie’s International Blog Highlight today, where you’ll be seeing lots of favorites from the Occasions & Sale-a-Bration Catalogs!    Here’s the Designer Series Paper I can’t get enough of…Painted With Love.  It’s just gorgeous!  Shiny with beautiful textures throughout!

I’ve decided to try a new Fun Fold, called a Wiper Card.  It’s actually pretty simple- there’s just a flap inside that pops up when the card is opened.  Cute!  The first time I saw this card was when I swapped at On Stage in Salt Lake City with Audra Monk, who’s on my Inspire, Create, Share Blog Hoppin’ Team.  Thanks Audra!

I used Stitched Shapes Framelits to cut out the square.  Did you notice the pretty vellum leaves?  That’s from Sweet Soiree Embellishment Kit.  All products listed at the bottom of this post, and it’s a great time to shop!  Sale-a-Bration Time!  That means you get a FREE item for every $50 you spend!

I would love if you could take the time to vote for my card at Kylie Bertucci’s host page for this blog highlight.  The top ten winners will get to be part of an international blog hop so please vote for my project (#6)!   To vote, click on the button below, go to the gallery, then hover over the picture of the card until the little heart turns red.  You can vote by clicking on the icon below:

Spring Fever SSINK April Blog Hop!

The Stylin’ Stampin’ INKspriation team has Spring Fever!  Thanks for joining us today to see what says “Spring” to all of us!

Spring had me reaching for the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper, which is covered with gorgeous floral designs.  The best thing about it is the colors!  You’ve got the pinks & purples and then there’s the blues & greens.  Today I’ll be playing around with the blue/green papers.Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper

I made a Double Gate Fold Card, which shows off this paper beautifully!

I just love it!!  I added that small circle with the flower on the right & stuck it on using a Dimensional.  It’s meant to tuck the large circle underneath to secure it.

There’s a coordinating Stamp Set (of course!) called Blooms & Wishes.  I love how Stampin’ Up! has papers, stamps, and colors that all coordinate!!

Here’s another version I made that steps it up a bit:

Can you find the difference?  No wasted DSP here!  And look when it’s opened!

Here’s some basic directions for the Double Gate Fold Card:

  • Card Base: 5 1/2″ x 12″ piece of Designer Paper (easier if you use paper without “up & down”
  • Score at 2″, 4″, 8″, & 10
  • With a ruler make a mark up the 5 1/2″ side of the paper at 2 3/4″ on both sides
  • Cut from this mark to the second score line on both sides
  • Flip the cut off triangle over and adhere on the bottom of the card, allowing you to see both sides of the beautiful paper
  • Inside: Cut Card stock 5 ¼ X 3 ¾ & top with Whisper White 5 X 3 ½
