6" x 6" DSP for 4 Cards

Let me show you a fun way to make 4 cards from one piece of 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. I featured the In The Wild DSP in my Facebook Live video replay below. I hope you'll find this video helpful and inspiring as you go about creating handmade cards. 

 

Here's another set of cards I made in the same way but with different papers.

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities The Adventure Begins

6a01b8d1640c2c970c026bdec61288200c-500wi

 

Stampin' Up!'s introductory video to the July The Adventure Begins Paper Pumpkin Kit:

WELCOME to another Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop. The July The Adventure Begins Paper Pumpkin Kit is full of creative elements waiting to be played with. My oldest daughter recently got engaged when she in her boyfriend spent a weekend in Hocking Hills. I chose to make a 2-page scrapbook layout with my kit. I'll add pictures Andrea and Jon took on their special engagement weekend.

The Adventure Begins - July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

 

I used Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for the two 12" x 12" pages. I think these sky and woodgrain prints coordinate nicely with all the elements of The Adventure Begins Kit. I'm really pleased with how nice these pages turned out.

The Adventure Begins - July 2021 Paper Pumpkin Kit

I cut apart 1 of each of the 3 fun fold cards included in the kit, then layered the two pieces of printed paper for each with Stampin' Dimensionals. The white center panel of each fun fold card, I cut down to 5 1/4" x 4" and mounted them on 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" Garden Green card stock to place photos on.

Take An Adventure In The Wild

Let's take an adventure into the wild as I show and tell you what CASEing is. CASE is a term you may have heard me say often. CASE stands for Create And Share Everything. So as we all create and share our projects on social media, we are inviting others in the stamping and paper crafting community to draw inspiration from our projects. We can CASE card layouts, scrapbook layouts, color combinations, stamping techniques, and more. I would encourage all of you then to share what you make. For it is in sharing that we all grow and learn. That is what I love most about being a part of Stampin' Up! and the paper crafting community. We all have something to share, and we all have jf to learn, and together we can enjoy stamping and paper crafting for years to come. 

The Christmas card in the photo below is the one I CASEd to make my two In The Wild birthday cards pictured.Tidings of Christmas Suite & In The Wild Suite by Stampin' Up!

Click here for supply list and cutting dimensions to make the Tidings of Christmas card below.
Tidings of Christmas Suite by Stampin' Up!

As you can see in the photos below, I kept the same basic layout for each of the two birthday cards but changed up the Designer Series Paper, color combination, die cut label for the sentiments, and added embellishments.

A Lovely Engagement Card

In case you haven't heard...there's going to be a wedding in my family. Andrea said yes to Jon's proposal on July 10th. I'm so excited for this couple. I've never seen my daughter as happy as she has been the last year and a half since she met Jon, and I'm happy to have Jon as a son-in-law. 

Andrea & Jon's engagement

Here is the card I made for Andrea and Jon congratulating them on their engagement. I used 2 brand new products from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog launching August 3rd - the Strong of Heart Stamp Set and Timeworn Type 3D Embossing Folder. I love the silver heat embossed imaged colored with Flirty Flamingo and Granny Apple Green Stampin' Blends.

How blessed I am to be Mom to Andrea and her sister Emily, and now I get to welcome Jon to our family. I'm looking forward to lots of love and laughter as we plan for Andrea and Jon's wedding. 2022 will be a BIG year with the wedding and Emily's graduation as a Doctor of Physical Therapy.

Wishing you a day filled with love and laughter. Thanks for visiting stampinpeace.com.

PS. We have a wedding date and venue! 


Stamping with Friends Blog Hop - Sneak Peeks

212049622_10219719043708496_5893127899089061058_n

The Stamping with Friends Blog Hop Challenge for today was to showcase a new product from the 2021 Holiday Mini Catalog which launches on August 3rd. By viewing all the blogs in this blog hop, you'll get lots of Sneak Peeks of wonderful new products to come and great samples too.

My card below features 3 brand new products coming in our Holiday Mini Catalog - the Thinking Thanks & Peace Stamp Set, Silver Foil Specialty Paper, and White Glittered Organdy Ribbon. I stamped with VersaMark Ink, added Silver Embossing Powder, then applied heat with our Heat Tool. The dove was colored with Clear Wink of Stella for a little shimmer. To me, this card shows the same simplicity and beauty as the Peace on Earth message itself.
