Wednesday’s WOW! #126 – Create 4 cards from one sheet of white card.

This is a fun twist on the one sheet wonder style of cards. And it is SO EASY! This is great if you need some cards in a hurry.

For this version I haven’t stamped over the entire sheet of card. To make it easier first make a mark in pencil on the halfway point on each side. That can help you visually where to stamp.

I have used the Sale-A-Bration set Delicate Dahlias for this one and used the new 2021-2023 Incolors – Fresh Freesia, Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen.

Start roughly in the centre of the card and stamp outwards from there. Using the different images and different colours. Don’t completely stamp the full card.

Then cut the card in quarters.

You will need to trim down the stamped card pieces for the front of the card. Trim off 4mm or 1/8″ on the width and the length. If you want to add another card mat under the stamped piece you will need to trim an additional 4mm or 1/8″. I just kept these cards simple.

The sentiment is diecut with the Tasteful Labels Dies. A silver banner is diecut from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper also available as a Sale-A-Bration choice. I added bling of course with the In Color Jewels.

These cards are going out to new team members this month. Do you want one?? Come and join in with my JEN’s INK Team. It doesn’t matter if you don’t want to “demonstrate” but I know you would love the discount on your stamping supplies and you will enjoy the fun we have. 🙂

It’s awesome value this month and in September with Sale-A-Bration. You pick an additional free bundle on top of the already great value.


Have a great day,

    For our Friday Flicks today I show you how to create a Pinwheel Tower Card.

    You might have seen these around. I have been fascinated with them and wanted to have a go. They are so easy – and they look so cool. You will want to try one yourself.

    I have used the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle.

    Here are each of the other panels.

    It can easily fold flat. This particular size is too large for a standard envelope but you can create your own OR cut the panels 2cm (3/4″) thinner and it should work.

    I have the video below for you or it is now on Youtube to view. I give the measurements for them in Metric and Imperial but don’t stress I have the measurements below.


    There are a number of versions around. This one was based on Karen’s card -> HERE.

    Tower Base – 17cm x 14.8cm 7″ x 6″ Scored at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm (1″, 2″, 3″, 4″)

    Panels – 3 @ 7cm x 14.8cm 3″ x 6″

    Designer Series Paper Pieces – 4 @ 14.4cm x 6.6cm 5 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

    – 4 @ 14.4cm x 4.1cm 5 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

    Hope you get to make one yourself.

    The Tidings of Christmas paper is one that is reduced at the moment in the Paper Sale. This finishes on Monday. So not long to save 15% on it.

    You can find it in my store -> HERE.

    Have a great day,

    They are a great set to colour with the Watercolor Pencils or your inkpads.

    You still have a chance to get this set with your $90 order but don’t leave it too long.  Friday is the end. That’s it and these chicks then head home. 😉

    At our South Pacific Convention back in May I had a play with this set ‘Bountiful Border’ in our Product Playground Area.  Now I will say I think this set can get overlooked in the Catalogue (p120 $30). I think it is a bit hard to work out all the parts of the stamps.  I had a play and stamped the images and brought the piece home – and then it sat on my table. I finally put it together last week and thought I would show you.


    I first stamped the stem in Mossy Meadow and then inked up the petals in Blackberry Bliss.  Being a photopolymer set you can easily see to line up the petals on to the stem.  It might take a little playing around to get used to it.  When inking the dots in the set I found it easier to leave the stamp on the desk face up and very lightly touch the stamp with the inkpad.  I gently stamped it off first before stamping on the card.  I repeated this a couple of times around the flower stem.  I added some Burlap Ribbon and the Razzleberry Cotton Ribbon.  It matches in quite well I think.  The greeting is from ‘Wetlands’ and was punched out with the Large Oval punch.  I added some gold sequins around the card to finish.  I find glue dots the easiest way to adhere these to card.

    So what do you think??  I am pleased with the final result.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    I am getting excited. I am going away for the weekend for some fun stamping time with my buddies.  Stamping 24/7!!! Well maybe we have to have a “little” sleep and there will be lots of chatter.  I can’t wait to show you some of the projects we made next week.

    Have a great weekend.


    3D projects, Stampin' Up!


    When I was at the South Pacific Convention back in late April (yes that long ago!!), I had a play with the Gift Bag Punch Board.  This is a new punch board in the catalogue.  I am sure by now you have seen lots of fun bags and boxes using this new tool.  I haven’t got one but I recently assembled the bag I made. I wasn’t sure how I was going to finish it off I guess that is why it took so long. 🙂 I thought I would show you the finished result.

    I used my favourite set ‘Awesomely Artistic’.  Check it out!


    I stamped the blossoms and the “dotty” strip in Soft Sky on to the Soft Sky Bag base.  The sentiment frame was stamped in Smoky Slate on Smoky Slate card with the greeting stamped in Tangerine Tango.  This was cut with the Project Life Framelits.  The dragonfly was stamped in Tangerine Tango and fussy cut.  I had to add some Silver Metallic Thread loops.  I only just received that thread THAT DAY! Whoop!  I tied off the bag with the White Cotton Ribbon.

    Check out a close-up of the thread loops.


    Hope you like it?  If you do a quick search for the Gift Bag Punch Board you can find lots of different ways of using this board.  If you check out on Pinterest there will be LOTS more ideas. 🙂  Check out the Stampin’ Up! Youtube video below to see how easy it is to use.  (If you receive this blog post by email you might need to go directly to my blog post to view the video.  Sorry.  Sometimes the video links get missed)

    Thanks for checking out my ‘Awesomely Artistic’ bag.

    Have a great day,
