Flip Flap Card!

Hi Everyone! Today I am honored to be the guest tutorial writer at SplitcoastStampers! I love this site! They have a vast resource for paper craft techniques and an amazing gallery of card photos, alphabetized by stamp set name, for years of stamps from Stampin' Up!   You can search for cards made with Lovely as a  Tree, for example, and find over 10000 cards (I'm not kidding, I checked) of cards made with this set.   I was asked to make a tutorial for a card I made a year or so back that I called the Flip Flap card.  Here is what I made! Fun right! I love that when you pull on the ribbon, the door opens up and there is a silly little cow saying "Cow's it going?"  I send one to a friend who was recouping, I hope it brought a smile.  Here is a link to the written tutorial: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/flipflapcard and the video I made.






I made a few other versions. The first is with the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set.



And this next card uses the A Little Lace stamp set.  It would be a fun one to send your friend for no reason at all, just for fun.

 I made a few cards with this technique a while ago, back in 2017.  You can see that post here: http://bethrush-bethspapercuts.blogspot.com/2017/04/grateful-bunch-flip-flap-card.html


















And a couple more here: http://bethrush-bethspapercuts.blogspot.com/2017/02/flip-flap-card.html

I hope that you will give this technique a try.  If you do, please share it with me!  You can upload your card to the Splitcoaststampers gallery.  You can also show it to me on my Facebook group page called "Beth's Paper Cuts Idea Sharing Group"  I hope you will join my group and share with me. It is nice to get ideas and share them too!

Parcels and Petals Video Hop



Hi Everyone! I am participating in my first ever Blog and Video hop! We are linking our blogs and videos to showcase one of my favorite new bundles the Parcels and Petals bundle.   I really like the stamps in this set, the sentiments are great for many occasions and I love the watercolor look of the flowers.
Each of the blogs and videos will show a card and a box made with this fun bundle.  Here is what I came up with. I wanted to use the tag topper die that comes with the bundle, as something other than a tag topper, just to show you other uses. I made a Belly Band with it and decorated both a box and a card.


 The colors I used were Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Night of Navy and Granny Apple Green.  I colored the ribbon using Markers.

 I added splatters of Wink of Stella to the outside of the card.  I wish it showed up better in the photo because it looks really pretty.
The dies in this collection are really great. I think you will get a lot of use out of them even with out the box.  I love the little labels, I  have already used them many times.  The pretty lacy detail is nice for a variety of things and the stitching and eyelets are super fun for backgrounds. 


Here is the video that shows you how to make these projects.  It's a little on the long side, but it is two projects, one of them a box.  You can skip forward to the parts you need to see :)    I hope you find some inspiration and some tips and tricks for coloring ribbon.   I hope you will hop onto the next blog and see what they have made and watch their how to video.  Click on to the next blog here.

 You can see another video I have made on how to elongate the box here.



If you purchase the Parcels and Petals bundle this month, I will send you a pdf tutorial on making these three projects shown.  And, when you spend $50 in July, you will also get a $5 coupon to use in August as part of Bonus Days.

Beautiful Friendship

Hi Everyone! Today I want to share another new Stamp set with you.  It is called 'Beautiful Friendship' and it was released just this month in the new Annual Catalog.   This card is simple yet it really looks great, especially in person where you can see the details in the flowers and the scattered sequins that mimic the tiny flowers in the Hydrangea.







The stamp set includes beautiful loose floral images and a few sentiments that I am sure you will get a lot of use out of.
