Ribbon of Courage Z fold swap card

 

Last month our Luv 2 Stamp group of demonstrators joined another group lead by Gina Cardera and we had a wonderful, informative day-long event featuring new Stampin' UP! products, business tips, lunch, make & take projects, and more!!  One of the fun parts of a demonstrator gathering is a card swap.   A card swap means you make several of one card (usually with a particular theme), and you bring them and "swap" with other demonstrators.  It's a great way to go home with a ton of new ideas!

The theme for our July event card swap was using any NEW products in the new 2017-2018 Stampin' Up! catalog, so I elected to use the Ribbon of Courage set and Support Ribbon framelit bundle.  See MORE about this bundle HERE.

I couldn't decide if I liked the Powder Pink ribbon on the side of the card or not... ultimately I made the cards without the ribbon... what's your preference?

I made a Z fold card using thick whisper white cardstock, Blushing Bride cardstock, Flirty Flamingo, Calypso Coral and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock, and the Fresh Florals paper stack.  See below in this post for the cutting and scoring instructions.

Each flower center has a Clear Faceted Gem.. the perfect touch to give this card a little glitz!

Congrats to Luv 2 Stamp Group Demonstrator Promotions!

 

Each month I recognize the title advancements (promotions) for my Luv 2 Stamp Group team of demonstrators.  I send a card and little Stampin' UP! product goody to each person.  I'm a little behind in sharing these but these are the Congrats cards I created with the Stampin' UP! Sunshine Wishes framelit dies for the demonstrators who promoted in May.

I know these are really bold and bright but the new 2017-2018 Stampin' UP! In Colors are just so fun to work with and I can't seem to put them down!!  So, I used a peppy combo of Lemon Lime Twist, Berry Burst, Black and White on these cards!

Each Luv 2 Stamp Group demonstrator with a promotion in May received one of the cards with a Gold Striped Treat bag and the Gold Faceted Gems and Metallic enamel shapes.  I tied them up with the gorgeous gold Metallic-Edge Ribbon.  SO PRETTY!

 Join my Team!

Read all the details about the EXTRA $72 in free product in your Starter Kit HERE!

For the flowers, I die cut Berry Burst cardstock with the flower shape in the Support Ribbon framelit set, and the leaf in Lemon Lime Twist from the same framelit set.  I was putting the green Glitter Enamel Shapes in the flower centers, and then I thought black might look fun and dramatic, so I colored some White Perfect Accents with my black Sharpie marker.  I like them both!

 

Color the White Perfect Accent enamel dots with any color Sharpie marker to match your crafty DIY project!

 

CRAFTY TIP!

Do you love tips that make life easier in the craft room!? 

OK, then try this... use the Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets, and put the adhesive on the back of your cardstock BEFORE you die cut your shapes... then you can peel the die cuts off the sheet and adhere them right to your project!  No Messy or time-consuming glue to deal with!!

 

Use Stampin' Up! Adhesive Sheets on the back of your cardstock BEFORE die cutting images, then easily apply to your crafting project.

Details & Dimensions:

  • Card Base: 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" Thick Whisper White cardstock
  • Lemon Lime Twist: 5-1/4" x 2-1/2" Fresh Florals Paper Stack

I had fun playing with a few different color combos for the stamped Stitched Shape oval, and then layering them onto one of the new 2017-2019 Stampin' Up! In Colors, die cut with a Layering Oval Scallop.  All colors are noted below each of the cards in this post, and all supplies are available in my online Stampin' Up! Store.

Video tutorial for Stamping on Glossy Paper - Adirondak Chair Beach Card

 

I was super excited to see Glossy paper come back to the Stampin' Up! catalog this year! (missed it? it's on pg 194, #144240).  I started stamping on glossy paper about 30 years ago.. it was such a hot trend with bold stamps and Marvy Markers, it's come and gone over the years as a trend, and now it's fun to explore the many uses for it in my craft room once again!

Today I am sharing a video tutorial to show you how to create this beach scene card with glossy paper, Stampin' UP! ink pads, stamps and accessories!

Enjoy the VIDEO TUTORIAL BELOW, and create one of these cards with me!

The darling red beach chair is die cut from the Seasonal Layers framelits. This adirondak chair framelit die is so popular, and I can see why!!  I stamped the palms and grass using the Fabulous Flamingo stamp set, and the little red flowers are from the Hello Friend set.  All of these supplies as well as the glossy paper, ink pads, stamps and accessories are available in my online Stampin' Up! store.  Click any of the product links at the bottom of this blog post to go directly to my store online. Please leave a comment or email me if you have any questions.

 As shown in the video, here is the Stampin' Up! Color combo I used for this project:

If you watched the video above, you'll see how easy this card really is.  Here is a visual reminder of the steps I demonstrated in the video:

 As usual, I could not decide on just one greeting for this card, so I made several and used 3 different greetings. 

Live Laugh Love and Enjoy the Little Things are both found in the Layering Love stamp set (pg 46 in the current catalog) and the Hello Friend stamp is found in the Hello Friend stamp set, pg 17.

Each greeting is stamped with Island Indigo ink to coordinate with the Island Indigo card bases.
