Birthday Card and Coordinating Gift Bag with Stampin' Up! Ride with Me

Birthday-card-gift-bagWe took a fun "ride" yesterday afternoon on Facebook Live with the Stampin' Up! Ride With Me Bundle [151106].

This great bundle and it's versatile, too!  It's not only great for birthdays but also fall-themed and Christmas cards!  Here's a Christmas card sample from my Christmas in July series.

Birthday-card-ride-with-meThe birthday card above was simply stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends. You'll have to watch the video to see my reason for choosing this particular color.

Gift-bag-ride-with-meThe gift bag above shows an alternative use of the truck die and was inspired by a project in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

In the Facebook Live recording below, I mention a special guest that teams up with me in a recorded video of the making the 3D truck.  You will have to tune back in tomorrow to see that! 

Here's the recording for these two projects.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!

This one comes to you early in the season so you can have it ready when it's time to decorate.

Let's take a look at the first in a series of Halloween projects for 2019.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Banner pieces are cut from Crumb cs and measure 4" x 5-1/2".  The banner end is hand-cut with Paper Snips as seen in the video.  You'll need about 1/2 sheet of cc to die cut the letters.
  • Cajun Craze cs is cut 1" x 4" for strips along the top of the banner.  You'll need about 1/2 sheet of Cc to punch the Starbursts.
  • You'll need about 1/2 sheet of Bb to punch the 2" circles.

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies used for this project. Just click the links to read more or to shop.

Make A Card To Send Your Thoughts

Stampin-up-thinking-of-you-card-very-versailleIt's always the right time to send a card to let someone know they are in your thoughts, right? 

We don't need a special reason to send a note of kindness.  I sent cards just like this one to both of my daughters this week.  Who can you send a card one day soon?

This card idea was made with a beautiful stamp set from the Stampin' Up! annual catalog. It's the  Very Versailles Cling Stamp Set [149275].

Just look at the beautiful images in this set!

And, this beautiful Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper [149500] is a must-have! It is amazing!

When I first started cardmaking, most of my cards were of this particular style and it's still one of my favorites.  Here's a quick video of the process.

Make An Easy Candy Pocket

Make-an-easy-candy-pocketToday's fun 3D project is this easy candy pocket featuring the Over The Moon Cling Stamp Set [149331] from Stampin' Up!
