Happy Easter! Friends & Flowers Bunny Pop-Up Card

My stampers have created lots of Easter cards the last couple of weeks.  This is one of my favorites.  It is a Pop-Up Corner Card with a fun fold design using the Friends & Flowers stamp set.

My customers liked this one so much I knew it was the card to share with some of our 7th-grade crafters during a Nite Owl Madness event this month.  The cards were a big hit with this age group too!

Welcome, 2016!

The new year is upon us.  2015 had many happy moments, and who knows what is in store for 2016.

2016 SAB COUNTDOWN 4 DAYS

 

One thing I already know about 2016 – is that my customers are going to LOVE the new Sale-A-Bration catalog!  One of the free stamp sets you can earn when you spend $50 or more is Flowering Fields.  I love the simple coloring you can do with this stamp set and the variety of wildflowers and plants in the set.  I took the phrase “BECAUSE YOU’RE SO NICE” from the new Botanicals for You stamp set (also one of the free Sale-A-Bration stamp sets) and omitted the “BECAUSE” for this card.  My color combination is Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow, Basic Black, and Pear Pizzazz.  The Botanical Gardens DSP is from the new Occasions catalog.

Secret Garden Simple Friends Card

Have you guessed I love our Secret Garden stamp set?  This is a swap card I made for one of my online swap groups last spring.  I love the simplicity and the color combination.

Secret Garden Calypso Coral Card

This is a new color combination for me – Calypso Coral and Wild Wasabi.  The Stripes embossing folder adds a little depth to the card too.  Sweet and simple – hope you like it!

Secret Garden Watermisting Card

I love our watercolor paper – it is so thick and absorbs watercoloring techniques so well.  Here is a card made using the Secret Garden stamp set and the Water Misting x2 technique.

Secret Garden Square Lattice Card

Secret Garden is another stamp set carried over from the Occasions Mini Catalog that I love!  The bold images have such a tropical feel.  Not quite enough to bring out my coconut bra, but I do hear the Hawaiian guitars strumming in the background when I use this set.

I used the Square Lattice embossing folder after I stamped the images.  I doubled up on the butterfly punch and attached the top, folded one with a glue dot.  My stampers never used the ticket punch before – it is perfect for some of our smaller phrases (this phrase is from Sweet Essentials)!  Now that I look again at the card, I need to add some gems to the centers of the butterflies.  They need a little sparkle!

Saying Goodbye to…Just Believe Stamp Set

The Just Believe stamp set has been a staple of my stamping room table for several years.  I loved the phrases and the images with this set.  I've made many swap cards, class projects, and personal cards with these beautiful images.  My first sample is one of the Technique Tuesday cards from last month:

Framelit Mask-Just Believe

The card features the Framelit Mask technique.  There are little pearls inside the flowers, but the camera didn't pick them up.

Here are some of the other cards I've made with this set throughout the years.  You can still get this stamp set through JUNE 3rd.  Be sure to order from my website – www.stampwithjane.stampinup.net .  It is available in clear mount for $25.95 (120543) or wood mount for $33.95 (116948)

Bright Blossoms Tulip Embossing Folder Card

The best way to get out of a card-making rut is to challenge yourself to use a different color combination.  Here is a card I made using Wisteria Wonder, Early Espresso, and Gumball Green…
