Friends are Like Seashels

 Hello, my stamping friend.

Back in November I attended a Stampin Up Onstage virtual event. Even so it was not in person, I and my friend Michealle had opportunity to get together, watch the event and stamp! It was so much fun. We saw upcoming catalog. I love flipping through the pages and see what set will capture my attention. Sand and Sea Suite of products was my number one choice. Not sure why, but I just loved the set and dies and embossing folder! It was a first what I ordered and had opportunity to use it for a swap.

This card was great for mass production. I embossed 4 x 5 1/4” of whisper white and adhered to the card base. DSp is 1 1/2 x 5 1/4. And I used 3 different patterns. Seals are stamped on white and fussy cut. Then I put them inside of emoting folder and embossed.  Sand dollar was stamped on new pearalized paper. 

The catalog is live now and you can order new goodies.

What is your favorite set from this catalog? Let me know!

Happy Stamping!

Sweetest Time Step Cards - 2 for 1

 Hello, my stamping friend.

Today I want to share another funky fold card featuring Sweetest Times bundle.


I saw this fold before and watched videos, but it seemed a little complicated with all scoring and cutting. So I decided to find an easier way. 

Here is the video how to make it in 2 different orientations:


Portrait Card 

  • Card stock: 4 1/4 x 11”; cut on 1 “ side from 1” to 6 1/2”; score to the cut line on both sides 1; 2; 6 1/2”; score middle section at 5 1/2” 
  • DSP: (2) 7/8 x 4 3/8 (sides); 2 1/x x 4 3/8 (middle). 7/8 x 4 1/8 (bottom) 

Landscape Card 

  • Cardstock: 5 1/2 x 1 8 1/2”; cut on 1 “ side from 1” to 5 1/4”;  score to the cut line on both sides 1; 2; 5 1/4”; score middle section at 4 1/4” 
  • DSP: (2) 7/8 x 3 1/8 (sides); 3 3/8 x 3 1/8 (middle). 7/8 x 5 3/8 (bottom) 

Here is how landscape card should look like:



Landscape card in my opinion gives you more space to decorate.
