cards, Stampin' Up!, Techniques, Videos


For today’s video I wanted to create some Recessed Panel cards to share with you. In the video I show you how to make one version but I have some other variations to share too. Have you tried this technique? It’s a great way to showcase some beautiful papers.

Check the video. I have the other cards to share with you too.

This is the card created in the video. I think when I looked at it after I should have cut the top curve higher to showcase more of the paper. You just don’t think of that in the middle of filming. 🙂

This one is the same version using a different print of the Pansy Petals paper. I used the Basic Borders Dies to create the curves in both of them.

Instead of curves you could make straight cuts in the card. For a difference though cut the card vertically. This one uses the Hand-Penned paper.

What about adding the pretty papers on top of the recess. This is a great way of showing that beautiful paper. This one uses the Art Gallery Designer Series Paper. For this I cut 2 angle cuts in the bottom right corner of the paper and added strips of the Poppy Parade card behind to highlight it.

I hope you get to create these soon. Choose whatever way you like to.

Happy Stamping,


cards, Catalogues, Stampin' Up!


Today’s card I have used the gorgeous A Touch Of Ink Stamp set. I think the flowers team well with the Art Gallery Designer Series Paper.

I wasn’t sure about this card. I kept coming back and stamping more on it and adding a ribbon knot. I even asked on my Facebook page the other day for what people thought showing the 2 different options without the knot and then with the knot.

So now I have updated the card. It was suggested to move the knot down and I trimmed the tails of the knot. So here is the final card. I am much happier with it now. Sometimes we all need to ask for ideas and suggestions. I know I always second guess myself.

The flowers from A Touch Of Ink stamp set were stamped down the side of the white card and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. I added some of the gorgeous Art Gallery Paper and some Art Gallery Ribbon. I added the knot of ribbon as it seemed to miss something.

I have loved using the A Touch Of Ink stamp set. It’s available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with an order over $180. I don’t want you missing out on it. I have an added bonus for you this week when you order.
