cards, Stampin' Up!, Techniques, Tutorials


OK, last one in this series of 5 Ways with Paper.  Have you been inspired by them?  Hope so anyway. 🙂

Today’s card in inspired by this card from Julie’s Stamping Spot.

I liked the strips and having the contrast card on it.  I changed mine around a little.  I think I will use this idea more often.  I do love that Tranquil Tide colour though too.

The Crumb cake strip is embossed with one of the Petal Pair embossing folders. The sentiment is from the Southern Serenade.


You can make the strips any size but I will tell you the measurements of mine.  I like the different widths of the strips.

Whisper White card mat is 9.5cm x 13.8cm (3 3/4″ x 5 3/8″)

Strips measure: Left – 4.5cm x 13.4cm (1 3/4″ x 5 1/4″)

Centre – 3cm x 13.4cm (1 1/9″ x 5 1/4′)

Right – 1.5cm x 13.4cm (5/8″ x 5 1/4″)

I shared a card with the Peaceful Reflection set the other day.  It was a nice, soft look with heat embossing. (Head back a couple of posts if you missed it).  For this card today we are going for a different feel.  We are going funky. 🙂

Are they butterflies or flowers?? You be the judge.  Pretty funky though do you think?? Can you see that with this set?

Colours are Rich Razzleberry and Flirty Flamingo with some Lemon Lime Twist.  The Lemon Lime Twist card was embossed with the Petal Pair Embossing Folder.  The sentiment is from Color Me Happy stamp set which is now retired.  I had made this card before the retirement list was out.

I made another card similar which I will show you tomorrow.
