Graduation Tent Card

Grad Card

   Needed a few graduation cards. It’s that time of year already. Time sure is flying by.  I thought I would start out with a simple card . It’s called a tent card. I made the vertical version of a tent card and wanted it to be masculine. All I did is punch out a square to stamp the Congrats using the Stampin’ Up! stamp set Four Square #111632 The  paper used is Stampin’ Up! Whisper White , Brilliant Blue, And Basic Black. Ink is Classic brilliant blue. I used a brad. Then made my own tassle with some dmc floss. 

It’s a quick card to make and I like the tent card. I found an easy turtorial on this wonderful blog right here. There is a tutorial for both the vertical as well as horizontal tent card. She did a great job with her tutorial and it’s easy to follow.

Stampin’ Up! Has there LAST CHANCE LIST out as well as Stamps sets we have to say goodbye to. You’ll find the information right here . Place an on line order with me and you’ll receive the Stampin’ Up! 2010-2011 Idea book and catalog for free from me once they are released.

Cute Bunny And Yellow Peeps




 You’ll find the template here box template

And for the pizza box I found an easy tutorial here

You can use both of them for so many different things. They are fast and fun to make. I may have to make a few more and really embellish them up!

I bought some peeps and raisinets. I wanted to use the rasinets as bunny droppings . I made the box and stamped the bunny with versamark and chocolate chip ink. Then embossed the bunny with clear embossing powder so it would appear to have that glossy look. looks like chocolate to me. yummmmmm I used the Stampin’ Up! Sending Love SpecialtyDesigner Series Paper. #117153,  Chocolate Bunny rubber stamp #11698 and the Eggcoutrements clear mount rubber stamp set #118556. They can be found in our Occasions mini catalog until April 30, 2010

Oldie But Goodie Waterfall Card

Thought I’d bring back the waterfall card. I just love what you can do with them. This one is for a friend. I left the bottom blank so I can write a note on it. But you could also stamp a fun greeting in that spot. Another idea is to make the water fall card with pictures of loved ones. There’s many themes in which this card would be perfect for.

Waterfall-Card Directions

I also made a cute MatchBox Bottom and Sleeve  to hold a truffle. I used the stampin’ Up! heart punch to punch out the top so it’s see through and added some acetate. quick and simple!

I used the free sale-a-bration set Whimsical Words.Using the stamp-a-ma-jig I inked up a few words at a time to get a few on each square using my stampin’ write real red marker.

Shop on my on line web store . Spend $ 50.00 and you can receive the whimsical words stamp set or another product of your choice from the sale-a-bration brochure

 I found a video tutorial on line at You tube that will make it easy for you to follow along and make your own waterfall card.  So just click here to get started if you’ve never made your own waterfall card.

Thanks for looking ! If you have any questions contact me and I’ll be happy to help you.





New Double Pocket Card Tutorial

This is the correct tutorial for the Double Pocket CARD. Yesterday I posted the double pocket pouch  tutorial by mistake.

The card I made for the Basic Note Card Kit With A Pocket was not the pouch it was the double pocket card. So I thought I better make a new tutorial and post it. I don’t want anyone to use the other tutorial and wonder why their card doesn’t open .

If you only want the Pocket Pouch yesterday’s post will work. sorry for any confusion I may have caused.










Double Pocket Pouch Tutorial

Okay. Here’s the tutorial  for the double pocket pouch.

Start with a double-sided 8 1/2 x 11 piece of Paper. I chose Fancy Pant’s paper since it matched the box for the card kit I was making. I didn’t know how the card box would turn out. So I didn’t want to put my Stampin Up designer series paper at risk lol


Place the side that you want to be on the front of the card up. Fold the cardstock in half vertically and open, then fold horizontally and open.



Cut the left horizontal fold to the center of the paper.


Now fold the right bottom corner up to the center


Next Fold the top left hand corner down approximately 2- 3/4  inches I should have held them down because the bottom one looks crooked. It isn’t though : ) I’m sure you can get the general idea.


next you’ll want to fold the top left quarter on top of the right quarter


Fold the left bottom quarter underneath the bottom right quarter


Fold the bottom right corner up to meet the middle horizontal fold


Fold the bottom quarter onto the top quarter to finish. And then you’ll need to use adhesive to close the edges.


My Sister In Law Karen Walsh taught this to me quite a while back and I thought I would resurrect it!


Happy Stampin!
