I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend!  Today, I’m sharing an adorable cupcake card.

For this card, I used a new die set.  It is a Sizzix die designed by Stephanie Barnard called the Cupcake Fold-it die set, and I think it is just the cutest!  This is the second card I’ve made with it since I got the set about a week ago.  It is perfect for birthdays, congratulatory notes, or just to brighten someone’s day.  For the card base, I used Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I used it for the card front as well. The way this die is designed, you can create either a top-folding or a side-folding card with it.  However, you will be missing a small portion of the die cut because of the fold in the card, so you do need to cut an additional card front unless the missing piece doesn’t bother you.  The cupcake liner is cut from some scraps of blue and grey paper, but that delicious chocolate-y frosting is cut from the equally delicious brown bag kraft paper.

Hello, I hope you are enjoying your Saturday!

For today’s card, I’m sharing one of my favorite styles of card – a Flip-It!  I think they are just a lot of fun, and I know my nieces and nephew enjoy receiving them because they have moving parts.  I couldn’t resist the sheep image… March goes in like a lion and out like a lamb, right??  It sure did for us this year!

For the card base, I used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.  It is nice and heavy, and the score lines create nice, clean creases.  I also used Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock for the sheep, which is stamped with Tuxedo Black ink, die cut, and colored with Copics.  For an accent, the strip along the side of the card is cut from Epic Black cardstock.  The green paper on the sides of the card is some origami paper from my stash, and the yellow textured cardstock is from my stash as well.

The stamps and dies I used are new for me.  They are by Stephanie Barnard, one of Sizzix’s designers, called Sheep2Stamp and the matching Sheep2Stamp die set.  Inside the card, I also used the Elegant Labels framelit dies to cut out solid shapes for the other side and stamped “Just for Ewe.”  The flip-it card die set is the Elegant Flip-it Card Set and I used it in conjunction with the Elegant Labels framelits.

Life’s been crazy around here lately, so my mojo has been on hiatus.  I hope it comes back soon – and in full force!  This little girl was too cute, and I am happy with how this flip it card turned out for From the Heart’s progressive challenge.

For this card, I used Stephanie Barnard’s Ornate Flip It’s #2 Card die, and I cut it out of 130 pound Richeson watercolor paper, which I love because it is super heavy.  It makes the card flip with ease. I cut out the adorable image of the Pumpkin Patch Girl using my circle Spellbinders die after coloring her with the following Copic markers:  B000, B32, B41, B45, E00, E04, E08, E11, E19, E29, E49, E50, G20, YG61, YG63, YR02, YR04, and YR09.

The designer paper, which I cut using the same dies as previously mentioned, are from the K&Company Sleepy Tree paper pack.  I think they are perfect for a Fall card.

Flip It Birthday Card September 19, 2015

I’ve been having so much fun lately playing with Stephanie Barnard’s Flip It dies… with what we call “Birthday Season” starting soon in my family, I’m getting a jump start on some birthday cards.

For this card, I used the Decorative Flip-Its die.  This is a Bigz die, and I ran it through my Big Shot using Neenah Solar White 110# cardstock.  If you use this particular die, you will need to use a very sturdy cardstock, otherwise the card will not want to stand up and flip very easily.  It benefits from a nice, thick cardstock.  Since I didn’t have the coordinating die cuts for this particular card, I hand cut the side and center pieces out of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock and Lapis Lazuli Mica/Metallic.

It is difficult to see, but I stamped a birthday cake and candles on the Lapis Lazuli Mica/Metallic.  The stamp is from the My Sentiments Exactly Cupcake B-day set.  It is embossed using Ranger’s holographic embossing powder.  The happy birthday sentiment is from the My Favorite Things Die-Namics First Place Award Ribbon set, embossed using Ranger’s clear embossing powder.

The inside of the flip portion is stamped using Nautical Blue Memento ink and a sentiment from the Jillibean Handwritten Sentiments stamp set.
