Travel Stand Up Card

Here's my final card that I made with this months Creative Cafe kit of the month from the Rubber Cafe'!  

This months kit is all about travel and with the My Mind' Eye- 6x6 pad hello world!  and our very own exclusive stamp set, Grand Adventure.  We think you'll be very inspired!  

Today, I made a fun Easel Card with the kit.

To make this card I started with a 8 1/2" x 4 1/4" panel of cardstock.
I used my Scor-Pal to score the panel at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4".

Then I folded the card on the 4 1/4" score and adhered patterned paper to the front with  Scrap Happy Glue.

I tied a ribbon from the kit around the score line.

I stamped the sentiment on a white panel with Memento Nautical Blue ink and adhered it and a puffy sticker from the kit to the top front portion of the card with Scrap Happy Glue.

For the inside I adhered a panel of patterned paper to a slightly larger teal panel with Scrap Happy Glue.  I stamped the "hello" and the "heart" on the panel with Memento Nautical Blue ink and then adhered it to the bottom inside of the card with 3D Foam.

Then when you Fold the front of the card on the score line it will stay open.

I stamped the scooter with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored with Copic Markers.
Then I backed the panel with Scallop edge die cut circle panels.

I glued the panel to the card base as shown below with Scrap Happy Glue

When it's flat and ready to mail it looks like this.

That's it!  Easy Peasy fun fold card that the recipient will love to receive!

I hope you'll give it a try!

Hello My Friend

Did you see the awesome new Sizzix Dies that Stephanie released this week?

I LOVE them all!

Here are some cards that I made with two of the new dies.

First I used the new Large Rectangle Dies.
These Dies allow you to create the perfect layers for your A2 cards.
On this card the Ocean Cardstock Layer and the Patterned paper layer were cut with these dies.

The second new die is that beautiful "Hello My Friend" circle die.
The patterned paper is from the Blessings Collection by TSOL.

I love how this Large Circle Flip it Card turned out.
The "Hello My Friend" circle die fits in the circle part perfectly!

Here's one final card that I made with the new "Hello My Friend" circle die.

All the paper, ribbons, and embellishments are from The Stamps of Life!

Thanks for stopping by!

Dreamin' of a Picnic

I have a fun stand up picnic card to share with you today.

It features Cupcake Ant from Stampendous.

I started by cutting a square stand up card base out of red cardstock.
When it dried I turned it and pasted it again.

I was trying to create a "picnic blanket".

I colored the image with colored pencils.
I used my Picasso shield to create the clouds.

For the inside of the card I used Picnic Ants and a sentiment from the Say it Today Perfectly Clear Stamp Set.
