Cupcake Wishes Triangle Fold Card!

Hey friends! I'm over on the Gerda Steiner Designs Blog today to share a cute cupcake birthday card with you all using the Let's Eat Cupcake digital stamp. This little guy is currently FREE so you'll definitely want to grab him! I brought out my Copic Markers and coloured him up with a fun and yummy cupcake - perfect for a birthday card. I used the Mama Elephant Birthday Messages Stamp Set to add the 'cupcake wishes' sentiment and the inside sentiment as well that says 'have a sweet birthday'. These fun papers are by Doodlebug Design and were included with the August SCT Sampler Pack. Of course I had to add some pretty SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins!

This is a triangle fold card, which is super easy - basically, you are scoring an 8 1/2"x11" piece of cardstock at 5 1/2" on the long edge and 4 1/4" on the short edge and then cutting it from corner to corner. The flaps then fold in to create your card front. You'll get two cards front one sheet of cardstock.

The Good Stuff Fall Layout with Video!

Hey there! Well, since it's September I thought I'd jump right into fall with a pretty autumn layout that I'm sharing on the Southern Ridge Trading Company Blog! I love customizing all the gorgeous chipboard and today I'm using Fall Leaves and Abstract Frame Set chipboard pieces along with the medium Fence Stencil from the SRTC Shop and using Distress Oxide Inks to pull everything together. I based this layout on the August Sketch in the SCT 365 - 2019 Layout Class and added some pretty SpiegelMom Scraps Sequins (use code KARLA15 to save 15% off at the SMS Shop!)


Here's a look at the video where I am sharing my process for colouring the chipboard and customizing this layout. I would love for you to like and subscribe in YouTube  💘

Many Thanks Teacher Card!

Hello! Today I'm sharing another back to school card over on the Scrap Shotz Blog using images and sentiments from Hello Bluebird Just Sayin'Mama Elephant Mini Everyday Messages and Lawn Fawn So Owlsome stamp sets. I love how fun combining stamp sets can be! I grabbed a watercolour background from my stash and layered on a border diecut from Your Next Stamp. I'm sure one of my girls teachers is going to love it!


Inside, I stamped a sentiment and this cute tiny ruler using the Studio Katia Kobi Loves School stamp set.

Die Cuttin' Divas Guest Designer... Ch #435 Thinking Of You

Hello friends! I am so super excited to be joining the fabulous Die Cuttin' Divas this week for Challenge # 435 Thinking Of You!! You will find so much amazing inspiration using diecuts - and you can enter with whatever diecutting method you choose! This is the perfect opportunity to get out any of your electronic or manual diecutting machines and play around. I just love the theme this week... I think we can all use more thinking of you cards, so I decided to cut this one using a premade project in Cricut Design Space. I changed the colours and used Kaisercraft patterned paper to create a soft, watercolour card. You can find the link to the project in Design Space HERE.


I layered on each of the diecuts and glued them using Tacky Glue and foam tape to create dimension. I love using the premade projects in Design Space and then customizing them to fit my style.


I used Nuvo Crystal Drops in pink and silver to add flower centers and as embellishments to the card. A bit of Distress Oxide Inks add some shading to the edge of the flowers, and the marbled paper in the background adds just a subtle colour variation. 


Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to head over to the Die Cuttin' Divas Blog to see what all the other designers have come up with for this challenge, and link your own Thinking Of You project! We love to see all the amazing inspiration 💜
