Step Card Sealed with Love

Another card I created using Stampin' Up!'s Sealed With Love stamp set.  I love making fancy fold cards and this one is no exception. Lots of little details which I love and you can find on most of my cards!

The Magic Begins With Stampin’ Up! Best Birds Card

This is a card I made using Stampin' Up!'s Best Birds stamp set.  We have been watching the birds at our feeder and have seen the usually wrens, chickadees, finches, and blue jays.  I was hoping that with warmer weather we would start to see some robins – ain't going to happen for a while!
Mother Nature has decided to give us all the snow we didn't get so far this winter in February.  We received 6 snowstorms in 10 days! Over 60" of snow in some areas. So what else could I do? Produce a little magic – card, that is.

The magic begins:

Every time I see the "magic" I smile.  You can find instructions for making this type og card by searching the web or YouTube for magic card instructions.

Happy 3rd Anniversary to the Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop

3rd Anniversary Celebration Banner

 

Wow, time does fly!  I was honored to be invited to join the Watercooler Blog Hop for it's 3rd Anniversary.  I was one of the original blog hoppers for that very first Watercooler Blog Hop and we are all back celebrating our three years of "hopping" together. We have all moved in different directions from that very first hop, however, one thing is consistent, our customers love seeing different styles of cards and projects which a blog hop provides.

My first project is an Anniversary card, using Stampin' Up!'s One Wild Ride stamp set and Banners for You stamp set.. This is my first time using this set and I loved how my idea for this card came together. Being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator can be "one wild ride", however, as the inside says "life's a journey enjoy the ride". So let us celebrate all demonstrators sharing their talent on blog hops.

My next project features one of the stamp sets that has survived since being introduced in 2013, Stampin' Up!'s Wetlands!  It is very vesatile and can be used for any type of card, I love it.  For this card I will give basic directions that you can use on most bendi (or bendy) cards.

 

 

Jeannine Tarrio Wetlands Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop


1.  Stamp background on 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" neutral cardstock.  
2.  Sponge background to create sky, water, sand, etc.

3.  Using your background as a guide, decide and then stamp the foreground pieces that you will trim to create the 3-D scene.
4.  Sponge these pieces.
5.  Create your tab by using a ruler to draw a line 1/2" from the end opposite the 1/2" score line. Make sure the tab is tapered a little to make it easier to insert.  Erase pencil marks.
6.  Adhere side pieces to card back.

7.  Figure out how much bend you want on the middle piece, hold it in place and mark where your slit needs to be cut. Open up piece and cut slit and check size.  Remember you can always make the slit longer, you can't make it shorter.
8. Repeat with other piece marking where the slit will go on the bend of the middle piece and mark with pencil. Open and cut slit.

You’ve Got This Corner Flip Card

This is another project I made for our Maine Stampers Team June meeting and my Hostess Appreciation party.  I used Stampin' Up!'s You've Got This stamp set with a fancy fold called a Corner Flip card.  I would like to thank Stampin' Up! demonstrator Dawn Olchefske for a great You Tube video on how to create this fold.
