For today’s video I brought out an older card design that I haven’t made for sometime. I was reminded of it recently when I was going through some old cards.
It’s a Zig-Zag style card and I have used the lovely Delicate Dahlias stamp set available as a Free choice for Sale-A-Bration with orders over $180 AUD. I have all the measurements below but check the video to see how to put it together.
Here is the card from different angles.
This is the back of the card.
Check the video out.

Today for our Video I have put together some ideas for you to drag out some of that stashed paper that you are storing up for a special occasion and actually use it. Friday Flicks is showing 5 Ways to use your Pretty Paper!
I will share the cards and general measurements below the video. If you are receiving this update by email and the video is not showing then head to the Blog Post or it is now on Youtube as well.

Below is the Flower and Field Strips card that was featured in the video.
The measurements are below.
White Mat – 13.8cm x 9.5cm 5 x 3 3/4″
Strip 1 – 13.4cm x 4.3cm 4 7/8″ x 1 3/4″
Strip 2 – 13.4cm x 3cm 4 7/8″ x 1 1/8″
Strip 3 – 13.4cm x 1.5cm 4 7/8″ x 5/8″
Card 2. Turn and Flip (Inspired by a card by Klompen stampers)
The sizes for cutting can be any measurements. These are my suggestions.
Cut paper to 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
Cut the paper at 7cm 3″
Turn anti-clockwise and cut each paper at 8.4cm approximately 4″. Flip over 2 of the pieces and adhere straight to the card front.
Card 3: Paper Blocks (Inspired by a card by Lisa Pretto)
Cut 2 pieces of paper. They can be the same piece but reverse one side – 1) 8cm x 9.5 3 1/8″ x 3 3/4″ 2) 8cm x 7cm 3 1/8″ x 2 3/4″
Card 4: Half piece
14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″ Cut the piece in half and flip one.
Card 5: This works well with a large flower print.
Fussy cut the flowers leaving an edge around the flowers. Raise up off the card with Dimensionals. Use a different pattern print for the card front. TIP: Use vellum between the pieces to break the elements up.
5 Cards and there are so many other ways too which I will share soon.
Hope you like this video and ideas.
Have a great day,
In Australia? I would love if you were to shop with me. Head to my store -> HERE.
There hasn’t been a lot I have seen with this stamp set. I think the sentiments are really lovely though for those “hard to do” cards. The occasions that we struggle with.
The Heal Your Heart stamp set would be just the right set.
These projects below are created by Stampin’ Up! Artists.
Create a little gift box for some special treats. The flowers are created with the Dandy Wishes Dies.
And a soft delicate card created with the Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper. What a beautiful saying this is. Add some vellum behind your sentiment to soften the paper if you feel it is too busy. It helps separate the paper and sentiment so it stands out more.
Hopefully they are not cards you need to make too often but it’s nice to have a stamp just for that occasion.
The Heal Your Heart set is a Free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your qualifying orders over $90.
Sale-A-Bration ends THIS SUNDAY FEB 28.
Don’t delay. Whether you choose this set or there are some other great stamps and pretty papers to choose.
Check them out in my store -> HERE. You can order there directly if you are in Australia orcontact me directly on 0439 844574. Don’t wait too long though.

Have you seen the lovely Flower and Field Designer Series Paper?? One side has some great flower patterns and the other side has more plain prints.
For the card I am sharing today I have used 2 of the papers. I love how they work together. And, the card is oh so easy to put together!
The flowers were fussy cut from one of the prints and I love how it contrasted so well with the stripey print. I added the Vellum rectangle, cut from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies, to help highlight the flowers so they don’t get so lost among the stripes. A simple sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set and cut with the Messages Die.
You can grab this Flower and Field Designer Series Paper Free with your orders over $90 for Sale-A-Bration. Or choose any of the other sets. Less than 2 weeks left!

I get asked a lot about the products and what people should get. Of course, everyone wants the best value for their money – and of course why not!
When it comes to Stampin’ Up! do you know what THE best value is??
It is … to join the Stampin’ Up! family.
Why is that such a great value??
You get more for your money in the beginning (and you don’t pay shipping on that first order). And then you get a minimum discount of 20%. That’s pretty good right??
What more do you get for that?
Of course, a fun crafting community in a team group or with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.
Access to the products early. YAY!

Joining in on my JEN’s INK team get togethers and sharing with them.
AND… There is no expectation to “sell” or “Demonstrate”. Just enjoy the discount for yourself BUT if you choose to you can “sell” to family and friends and new-found crafting friends. No pressure though.

Most of my team members are “hobbyists”. I think we are all Hobbyists as we love our “hobby” of crafting. Some just take it a little further and may “sell” to family and friends and others. There is no obligation. I welcome all types of crafters.
I look forward to welcoming you to my team.

I’m loving the paper for Sale-A-Bration. Are you??
Today’s card uses the lovely Flower and Field Designer Series Paper. It can seem dark and heavy but the trick is to use small pieces – and to add some pops of colour. For this card I added some Daffodil Delight and have a Granny Apple Green card base.
I used the Daisy print for this one and added some daisies with the Medium Daisy Punch. I saw that idea on a card on Pinterest. It never occurred to me to use that before with the paper. The sentiment is from the So Sentimental stamp set and diecut with the Stitched So Sweetly Die.
Less than 3 weeks left for Sale-A-Bration. Don’t miss out. Check all the pretty papers and choices -> HERE
