Pansy Dutch Door Fold

Hello Stampers!

Today is a simple fun fold for you using the gorgeous Pansy Petals suite. Check out that pretty new In-Color too! It's called Polished Pink. I love it! It's so bright and bold! The Pansy Petals DSP (designer series paper) really steals the show here. The colors are so vibrant! I stamped a couple of pansies using Fresh Freesia (another pretty new In-Color) and Blackberry Bliss at the top of the inside of the card so they'd show through to the front when the card is closed. 

The front panel of the card was made from the other half of the "dutch door". We just cut a slit down the middle of the front of the card then cut it off at the score line. Easy Peasy!

And there you have it! A quick and simple card for your Thursday!

Ice Cream Corner Suite

Hello there!

Everyday we're getting closer to Summer and one of my favorite things about Summer is....Ice Cream! 

Today I'm featuring the Ice Cream Corner Suite. With one product number (#155984) you can get the Sweet Ice Cream Bundle (stamp set + punch @ 10% off!), the Ice Cream Corner DSP (Designer Series Paper), Blackberry Bliss striped ribbon and the Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles. 

All 3 of these cards use the suite, Basic White & Blackberry Bliss Cardstock - plain and simple. The card on the left, I added the use of the Layering Circle Dies. That's it! The Stamp Set and Punch has rolled over to the new catalog, but the DSP, ribbon and sprinkles did not, so be sure to get them now before the 1st part of June or they'll be gone for good!

By the way...I'm in love with that ribbon!!! I'm super sad to see it going away. It ties such beautiful bows and it's just so pretty. 😭

Don't you think it's time to get YOUR non-fattening Ice Cream here???!!!

May Stampin Stray Ducklings Blog Waddle- Cap & Gown card/money holder


I share my passion for stamps, ink & paper with a special flock of ladies called the "Stampin' Stray Ducklings". Whenever we're together, feathers fly because of all the fun we have! This month, my feathered (or notsomuch! LOL) friends & I are featuring Dad or Grad cards. 

This theme is perfect for me since my most favorite young man of all time is graduating high school this year. My nephew, Sam, who's been my partner-in-crime on lots of horse camping trips and riding adventures is off to college. 
Where in the heck did time go? I couldn't be more proud of him and I can't wait to celebrate with him on the 22nd. 

Without further ado, here is his card. I CASEd it from Rhonda Griffin but I changed the measurements so it would fit in a regular Stampin' Up medium envelope. Sam's high school colors are maroon and white so I used Blackberry Bliss CS for the base of his card. 
Congratulations is heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The tassle is a retired embellishment from the Dressed to Impress suite, but you could just as easily make a tassle with our white twine. The Gold Gilded Gems work perfectly for the top of the cap!

I added a little money pocket to the inside of his gown to and the sentiments from A Grand Kid stamp set were PERFECT for this card :) 

I used the Stitched Triangle die cuts to make the top of the gown and added some gray granite shimmer ribbon with tear tape below the triangles. 
 The Playful Alphabet dies were used for the numbers.

Et Viola! It fits nicely inside our medium white envelopes! 

I sure hope Sam enjoys his personalized card. I know for certain he'll enjoy the president inside it! 😉
Here are the measurements: 
Blackberry Bliss- 3¼ x 8½ scored at 2⅛ from each end (gown)
                                 - 3x3 (cap)
                                 - 2x2 scored at 1" on one side (cap holder)
                                 - 1½ x 1¾ punched using ½" circle punch on 1¾ side (money holder)

Basic White- 3x4 (inside)
                         - 2x2 (triangles) 
                         - 1x3 (numbers)
And there you have it! Please make sure to check in with the rest of my duckling friends. Next up is Sue Boerner or you're welcome to waddle back to visit Debbie Widener
