Tri-fold for extra signature space

 

Did you ever need a card that was going to be from a lot of people? a "From All Of Us" card?  I needed several last week.  I was asked to make tags and cards for some gift baskets that our church was putting together for First Responders on September 11th.  I decided on this simple tri-fold center that would give us twice the signature space so that everyone could sign the card.  We put together 6 baskets in all.  I forgot to take photos of all the cards and tags.  You might be able to see the banner, made from the Alphabest bundle.

                                                   Here is a quick how to for this card fold.

I used the Biggest Wish stamp set for the background. This is a fun set and so easy to use and line up the words because it is a clear photopolymer stamp. 

I also used Inspired Thoughts for the sentiment. 

The cardstock is Starry Sky, a new color.  I used the Label Me Fancy punch for the sentiment, which is embossed on Sweet Sorbet cardstock. 








I decided to make another card using the same format, but this time for Christmas.  I used the Caroling Mice stamp set.  I stamped the images with Memento Black ink and colored them with Stampin' Blends.



The Caroling Mice stamp set is a Host stamp set, which means that you can get free with a purchase of $150 or more using Stampin' Rewards. You can also use my Frequent Buyer Rewards to earn this stamp too!  This set is a limited time set.

Speedy Recovery Stamp Set

 Hi Everyone!  I just realized that I didn't share a couple cards from the last Card Buffet.  This one is a Get Well card that uses the Speedy Recovery stamp set. 

I paired the get well idea with some paper from the Tea Boutique Designer Series paper. A little lemon in my tea always makes me feel better when I am a little sick. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 The stamp set definetly has a get well vibe but you can also use the cup for a fellow coffee enthusiast or to suggest a get together. The bouquet of flowers can be for so many occasions as well.

Bewitching stamp and punch bundle

 

It might be a little early for Halloween but this set is so cute and I thought it would be fun to use it today!  Holidays have a habit of sneaking up on me too, so getting ahead of the game is never a bad idea for me anyway. 

 I'm using some bright colors on my card: Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, and Gorgeous Grape. After creating the card I found out that the ribbon and Black Glimmer paper has retired. If you wanted to recreate the card, you can use a black patterened paper or white glimmer paper and ribbon that is died black with a spritzer filled with black ink or a black ink pad.



 

The Bewitching stamp set is super cute with three different hats and those fun legs and shoes! I love it. 

 

 

 

 

 



 Here is a cute sample from Stampin' Up!



I think these hats will be really cute on some Halloween treat packaging.  My daughter was a witch for Halloween a few years back and I may have to make a scrapbook page with this set too!

 

 

 

 I made a quick how to video for this card.

Stampin' Up! soft pastels with Apple Harvest Stamp set

 

I still had the Apple Harvest stamp set on my desk and as I was cleaning up I thought I would do one more card with it using the Soft Pastels, but this time as a Back to School type card.  One card turned into 2 as I first made the white card with a splattered graffiti look to the Brick and Mortar embossing folder on the background. Then I thought about real brick and made the Cajun Craze version with the bricks distressed with the pastels.  These were super fun to make. 


This first card has the apple mounted onto Tahitian Tide. The Brick and Mortar embossed piece is splattered with Tahitian Tide and Parakeet Party ink. 

I stamped the Welcome Back stamps in black onto Parakeet Party cardstock and added a fun Baker's Twine bow behind. Some In-Color matte dots add a little more fun. 

The Welcome Back sentiment is from the Garden Birdhouses stamp set. 








On this second version I decided to go for a more realistic brick color with Cajun Craze.  We have a lot of red/orange brick in the Chicago area. I distressed the brick using the Soft Pastels. 

The bricks are mounted onto Smokey Slate. 






I made a video for this card, which you can see here:
