Let's Get Moving

Hello Stamping Friends,

Welcome! I hope you had a fantastic week and that you are planning on having an even better weekend. This week at the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing cards that move with you. It's always fun to receive and interactive card, but you know what? It's just as fun to make it. 

I decided to make a suspension card. The main image is suspended in the punched out front. It's even cooler because it doesn't just hang in there, but it can spin.  I love this type of card because it is relatively easy to make. Not a ton of steps or complicated directions. That's awesome, right?

You punch a circle (or any other shape you want) in the front of  your card. If you are layering, put your layers together (not glued down yet) and then punch so it will all be lined up. Then your focal image is stamped and punched on a smaller insert piece. Place a piece of string on the back of the stamped image. You'll actually need two stamped punched pieces to sandwich the string in between. Adhere the top and bottom of the string to the base of the card and then adhere your other layers accordingly. For my focal image, I actually used another circle punch to layer between the stamped images to give it a more finished look.

And of course, you need to finish off the inside a little to surprise the recipient a little more. The scrap piece of designer paper from cutting the front to size is perfect to finish it. 

This card, in all honesty, didn't take long to make at all. However, the impact is great when opened. Wouldn't you love to be surprised when you open this card?

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for even more fun cards that move.

Stampers Dozen Holiday Preview Blog Hop

Hello Stamping Friends,

It feels so good to be sharing with you twice in one day. I know I have been a bit sporadic in my sharing ideas with you, but I hope you understand. I thank you for being patient with me. Tonight's post is the monthly blog hop with the Stampers Dozen ladies. There is so much talent in this group and I'm so honored to be a part of it. I hope you enjoy the hop as much as I do.
This month we are sharing with you projects made using new goodies from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog (aka the Holiday Catalog). This catalog is jam-packed with so many awesome new products. If you haven't made your shopping list yet, I don't know what you are waiting for.

I used the Beautiful Autumn bundle for this card. The bundle is the stamp set and a great mini punch set (3 punches). It really is a simple card to make but the metallic elements in both the cardstock and the designer series paper makes it so elegant. It is sometimes difficult to capture the beauty on camera, but I promise you in person this card is gorgeous.

I just stamped a simple thank you on the inside of the card. You can certainly leave that off and send the card for whatever occasion you need a card for. Isn't that really the case with most cards?

Again, I just took a strip of the designer series paper and put it inside to bring the whole look together.  Keep Scrolling down and be sure to keep hopping. You won't want to miss this hop.

Thanks for stopping. See you soon.

Hello Stamping Friends,

I'm so happy to have you visiting today. I hope you find inspiration. This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing cards focusing on using the bundles that are currently available. You know that when you buy a bundle you save? Who wouldn't want to save while getting great coordinating products? The bundles include a stamp set and either coordinating dies or a punch. This coordination makes creating beautiful works of art so simplified.

I used the Coming Home bundle which includes the Coming Home stamp set and coordinating dies. This card is a great card to give to someone who just moved. What a great way to say welcome to the neighborhood or just a simple congratulations on your recent move.

I like bringing the outside of the card inside if possible to just complete the look. This was so simple to do with this card by just adding a piece of the plaid designer series paper to the bottom. It really finishes it off nicely.

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping to see the other great cards that were made using current bundles.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon. Real soon, tonight there will be a post with the Stampers Dozen Blog Hop. Again, always another great source of inspiration.
