3D projects, cards, Catalogues, Challenges, Stampin' Up!


I have wanted to make a Bendi card for some time.  I had actually forgotten about it until I saw it on Splitcoaststampers last week.  I thought this would be a great idea for this week’s Colour Inkspirations Challenge #07 and Carousel Birthday set might just work well for it. Why not use it too when it will be leaving us very soon. Boo Hoo!

So here are the colours for this week.

And here is my card…

Can’t you just hear that Carnival music playing. 🙂

If you would like to make your own Bendi card then you can find the tutorial HERE on Splitcoaststampers.com.

Just a tip with the tutorial:  I spent a lot of time stressing about where to line the slits up and how long the tabs should be.  Don’t worry too much about it though.  If you mark the pencil lines as it say on the tutorial. Mark the tabs in first that will slide in your slits. Make them how wide or the angle you want then cut the tabs.  Then line up the tabs on the pencil line where the slit is to be and mark the widest part of the tab in pencil on the line.  I then cut the slits with my Stampin’ Trimmer.

Have fun making your own,

  1. LOVE THIS! The 2017 Occasions Catalog is my all time SU favorite catalog, to this very day! I live EVERYTHING in it! I’m going to give this a try! I have all the discontinued items and my soon to be 7y. old granddaughter loves carousels and her Grandma’ cards! It’s a win win for me! Thanks for sharing and keeping it available to use.

    1. Glad you like it so much Martha. I do love this set still. I’m sad I sold it. I’m sure your granddaughter will love the card. Glad you found the project to make. Happy creating!


      1. Have made two more since. I did discover adding an extra inch to the length of the left inside 2 1/4” wide swinging tab piece (making it 6 1/2” long) helped the tab stay perfectly in the base slot without slipping out; a problem that occurred after adding all the decorations. The longer replacement piece needs to be cut from a separate piece of cardstock, since all the other pieces in the layout are cut at 5 1/2” Easy enough! Live and Learn!
