Paper Pumpkin kit video

When I was making the video, I didn’t realized that some of the measurements were a tiny bit off. The measurements down below are correct though.


  • Card base is one piece of white cardstock measuring 11″ x 4-1/4″
  • In the video, I used a piece measuring 11″ x 4-1/8″, which made it super easy for the layering, but when I placed the piece on the card base there was a little bit extra on the end. See picture below. It didn’t affect the card at all. So, I am giving the measurements for both options 🙂 and you can choose which one to make.
  • Option 1
    • A piece of white cardstock measuring 11″ x 4-1/8″, scored at 2-3/4″ and at 5-1/2″
    • 1 piece measuring 4″ x 5-3/8″
    • 2 pieces measuring 4″ x 2-3/8″
  • Option 2
  • A piece of white cardstock measuring 10-3/4″ x 4-1/8″. Scored at 2-11/16″ (this is the mark just before the 2-3/4″) and 5-3/8“.
  • 1 piece measuring 4″ x 5-1/4″
  • 2 pieces measuring 4″ x 2-9/16″ (which is the mark right after 2-1/2″) If you don’t like to use 16th of an inch, you can use the 2-5/8″ , but the margin for the layer will be too small. I would rather use the 2-1/2″.

Happy Stamping!!!

As usual, you will find the video tutorial and the instructions down below in a free PDF tutorial.

Triple easel Christmas Card 

Hello, hello! I want to share with you a card I made today. This card is fun! I am using the Sweet Stockings Suite, which is quickly turning into one of my favorite collections from the Stampin’Up Mini Catalog. I used mostly the Designer Series paper, also called Sweet Stockings, but I did used some of the stamps and dies. Just remember that if you buy a suite or a bundle you save 10%.

The triple easel card is much simpler than you would expect. I have included the instructions in my Crafting Corner and you can find my video tutorial in my Youtube channel.

The Sweet Stockings DSP is definitely for the animal lovers about there. It has dogs, cats, mice, parrots and fish, yeap we have them all.  I fuzzy cut some of the animals from our designer paper and stamped and used them in the cards as main focal points. I also stamped and die-cut a few gifts from the suite stamp set and colored with alcohol markers.
