SNEAK PEEK Here are some beautiful projects created by our Stampin’ Up! Artisan Team, just to give you a little inspiration for using these gorgeous and fun projects!
Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created “Birthday Bonanza” projects to inspire you to make for all of your family and friends. We hope you enjoy and are inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments because we all love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
One of my goals this last year has been to send more birthday cards. I have fun going through the birthdays of my friends in my address book and on Facebook, and sending handcrafted cards in the mail. I made a Creative Swing Card, the instructions of which I gleaned from a video at Connie Stewart’s Simply Simple Stamping. HERE is the link for the video she presents. This card is a really fun creative fold, where the inside sentiment, located on the Stitched Nested Label die, ‘flips’ when you open the card.
I started with a 8 1/2″ by 5 1/2″ card base, scored on the long side at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″. I really wanted to feature the beautiful papers of the Fine Arts Floral Designer Series papers. I cut three panels of Designer Series Paper, according to the measurements below. The trickiest part of the card is accomplished using a Stitched Nested Die, but only cutting HALF of the die into your cardstock. A picture is worth a thousand words, they say, so just take a look at Connie’s video! It’s really easy!
The back of the Stitched Nesting Die sentiment area has its own stamping area when the card is opened:
Here are the measurements in a nutshell:
Base – 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 2 ⅛” and 4 ¼”
Panels (stamped cardstock or Designer Paper) -1 ⅞” x 5 ¼” and 4″ x 5 ¼”
Basic White – 5 ½” x 8 ½” – cut Stitched Labels dies
To decorate my cards, I used the Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder to emboss a panel of scrap cardstock, and then punched out some butterflies with my Butterfly Duet punch. I went over the butterflies with Wink of Stella to give them a nice sparkle, although it’s hard to tell from the photograph.
Such a fun fold to try — I highly recommend it! Who wouldn’t want a BIRTHDAY HUG in the mail using these beautiful Stampin’ Up! products?
I created a ‘sister’ card with a spring theme, using a sentiment from the Springtime Joy stamp set. These papers are so luscious – it’s easy to just keep on making cards!
More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on March 10th when our theme will be “Cute Critters” where the design team will be sharing projects that will feature critters of all sorts to inspire you. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room.
Never underestimate the power of a handmade card and the difference it can make in someone’s life! Sadly, there is heartache, hardship, and hopelessness in the world all around us.

Every year, I create 5 X 7 panels for my daughter Katie’s desk. It started with a Stampin’ Up! kit a number of years ago, one that included an easel for the desktop, so replacing the panels is something I look forward to each year.

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team created projects featuring “Sale-A-Bration Products.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments. We love hearing from you! At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
My card starts with the Sweet Strawberry bundle from the new January-June Mini Catalog. Stampin’ Up!’s Designer Series Papers are the prettiest in the business, and my project utilizes a set of DSP from the Sale-A-Bration rewards brochure. A punch bundle is the BEST, don’t you agree? It’s time saving, and yet adds some detail and dimension to the card. I grab up every one that comes out from Stampin’ Up! How fun is this bundle going to be — all through spring and summer! And check out the beautiful fonts on the sentiments. L-O-V-E.
My project starts with a card base of 4 1/4″ by 11″, and a panel of cardstock (Granny Apple Green) that measures 4″ by 5 1/4″ that I ran through my Cut and Emboss machine with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder.
Next, I used one of the patterned sheets of DSP from the Berry Blessing bundle – a stamp set and a set of Designer Series Paper – available through Sale-A-Bration with a $100 purchase. I loooooove this bundle and how it coordinates with the Sweet Strawberry bundle from the new Mini Catalog – a perfect combination!
Here’s a fun way to cut your beautiful DSP that allows you to make many cards with just one sheet of 12″ by 12″ paper. I love the way this technique adds these fun patterns and goes a long way! I got this angled cutting tip from Susan Campfield at https://www.suestampfield.com/blog/.
Start with a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP, and make a small pencil mark at 1 1/2″, then turn clockwise and make the same 1 1/2″ tick mark on each side of the paper.
Then line up two pencil tick marks from opposite sides of the paper, and cut from one side straight down to the opposite side. Keeping the paper intact after the cut, turn the paper clockwise, and cut from the other tick mark to the opposite side of the paper.
This method leaves you with four angled cuts that you can use for four different cards! Just match a corner of your card base with the correct angled piece and adhere! You can make four cards with a 6 by 6″ panel of DSP!
I adhered one of the angled cuts as an additional layer on the card. From there, I used a Stitched Shapes circle diecut and stamped a sentiment from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set onto the circle. I then stamped three strawberries (in two steps with Poppy Parade ink) onto a scrap of Basic White cardstock. I stamped three leaves for the strawberries with Garden Green. I punched out all the shapes with my new coordinating punch, and positioned them on the card. I topped off the card with some Elegant Faceted Gems.
The Sweet Strawberry bundle and the Sale-A-Bration coordinated bundle Berry Blessings are going to be SO popular!
Here is another project I made using a different piece of the DSP, and a Rich Razzleberry/Garden Green combination. See how this angled panel comes from the bottom right of the card instead of the top left? And don’t forget — four cards out of a 6″ by 6″ square of paper!
I hope you enjoyed seeing my two projects from the new Sweet Strawberry and Berry Blessings Bundles from Sale-A-Bration! I know these bundles will be getting a LOT of use in the new months of spring and summer!
