Stampin' Up! Happy Birthday Gorgeous Z- Fold Card





I made this beautiful card this past weekend at the North Carolina Stampin' Up! Demonstrators Meeting. It was designed by Carol Snow, and taught by her daughter, Cheryl Snow. We did 6 different projects during the event, and I also did a card swap, so I have a lot to share with you.

The pretty designer paper is called Foil Frenzy. I never paid much attention to it until now. It is just gorgeous. The stamp set is Happy Birthday Gorgeous. It was so easy to put together, but you'd never know it by looking at it.

You can find a great tutorial for this card HERE.

Spooky Gatefold Halloween Card




I used the Spooky Cat Stamp Set, along with the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper for this card. It's a Gatefold Card. I stamped the owl directly on one of the panels from the paper set. The sentiment will fit directly on the owl, and has the eyes on it, but I just wanted the words. To do that, I inked up the image then added a sticky note to the designer paper where the eyes were. Omitting things like that open you up to more possibilities.

The Basic Black 3/8" Shimmer Ribbon is so pretty. It sparkles like glitter, and really adds a nice touch. I also added two of the new Black Rhinestones to her eyes...so cute! Speaking of the Black Rhinestones:

Painted Harvest Card




Hello, and welcome! I copied these cards directly from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog. There are several projects called "You Can Make It" that list the supplies you need to replicate them. You can also find many in the main catalog.

I changed the Early Espresso color suggestion to Chocolate Chip. It didn't make a big difference, but I liked it better. If you notice, the card on the right is a bit different. I put the panel on upside down, but it still looks great. A happy accident! Although it's not listed in the supplies, I used Thick Very Vanilla Cardstock for the card base. I also used Stampin' Dimensionals on the back of the sentiment, and the first card layer. It was quick & easy just as it says in the catalog. I plan on copying many more of the projects. You should try it too!
