Birthday Card, Fun fold, Mini Albums

Mini album card, #1

Want to learn how to make a mini album card? These cards are spectacular and and they are a wonderful gift on itself, but you can adapt to have a gift card holder, hidden messages, pictures, even a little calendar. As usual, you will find a video tutorial and a FREE PDF tutorial, that you can download, for convenience.

If you don’t already have a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and are interested in Stampin’ Up! supplies, I’d love to send you complimentary copies of the annual and/or the mini catologs. Simply email me HERE to let me know which catalogs you’re interested in. Please, include your mailing address in the email. You can access our digital Annual Catalog here.

Have you seen the Happy Forest friends Suite? Let’s be honest, I am a sucker for anything forest/mountain related and whimsical stamps… so, this suite was one of those I chose to get right away! Stampin’Up! did a wonderful job at creating this designer series paper. It feels like it all matches so perfectly! The cute stamp set is just adorable and I absolutely love the dies as well. I am also using the Charming Sentiments Bundle. Remember that these are better as a bundle, as you will save 10%, and really who wants one without the other?

This card has a lot of steps, but in itself, it is not hard to make. Pretty straight forward pieces to be added to the card…

This is one of those bundles that is retiring and the dies are on sale, so run over to my online store and get them, better yet get the bundle, as one really needs the other! Unfortunately a the time of this post, the paper had sold out and is not longer available. ( I am so sorry for that). Of course, I have made several versions of this card, just for your inspiration and to show you how versatile this card can be.

Center Step card

Another week, another cards! And what a card. Step cards are very versatile and super easy to use for different occasions. The versions I made are quite feminine, but as I was making them, I kept thinking of the possibilities. How about using the Peekaboo farm animals (see previous post), or the Majestic Mountains. I created a video tutorial that I think will make it easier for you to recreate the card. I have also created a template that will be available in the PDF tutorial that you will find below.

Isn’t this stunning? I am using the Abstract Beauty designer series paper, which has some of the combinations, I love the most: pinks and blues, pink and golds and I can keep going. Do check them out. They will be a great addition to your paper collection.

I am also using the Artistically Inked stamp and die set. Remember, if you buy the bundle, you save 10%., and who doesn’t like to save?

Although, this seems like a complicated cars, it really is not, especially when you use Stampin’Up trimmer. This trimmer is created with the user in mind, and who knows better what the user needs, than those who also love creating?

I decided to decorate the back, instead of creating an “inside” of the card… to be honest it was kind of an accident. When I was finished with the front, I realized that the back really looked unfinished. So, I decided to include another center panel on the back and, I couldn’t open the card, LOL LOL. Anyway, I think the back looks gorgeous and I kinda feel in love with the idea. What do you think?

For this card, you will need:

  • For the base: cardstock in Night of Navy that measure 7″ x 10″
  • Front:
    • Gold foil:
      • 2 pieces measuring 2 1/8″ x 4 7/8″, for the side panels
      • 2 piece measuring 7/8″ x 2 3/8, for the initial “step” and the back of the step
      • 2 pieces measuring 2 1/4″ x 2 3/8″, for the second step
      • 1 piece measuring 4 7/8″ x 2 3/8″, for the third step.
      • For a complete different look, you can leave the steps with their regular height, instead of making longer panels, like I did. 🙂
    • 2 pieces of designer series paper, measuring 2″ x 4 3/4″. Abstract Beauty is the stunning paper I used for this card.
    • 1 piece of designer series paper, measuring 2 1/4″ x 3/4″
    • White cardstock:
      • 1 piece measuring 2 1/4″ x 2 1/8″
      • 1 piece measuring 2 1/4 x 4 3/4″
  • Back:

Want to see other cards with the same technique? I love this card! The color palette is so soft and inviting. I used the Expressions in Ink paper and the Artistically Inked Bundle. The paper is retiring and is such a shame because it is gorgeous. So snatched it before it’s gone.
