Peek-a-Boo to Someone New!


Really had fun making this card today after being inspired by a video from Jan B.  I added the Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper, the bow paper clip.  The stamp sets I used were Suite Sayings and Friends and Flowers.  It will make a very cute card for a new baby.

  • The base of my card is Blushing Bride card stock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4" in the middle.
  • The second layer is Whisper White card stock cut at 4" x 3-3/4".
  • The third layer is Birthday Bouquet DSP from the 2016 Occasions Catalog which I cut out an oval using the Ovals Collection Framelit Dies.
  • I cut out another oval from the new Blushing Bride Glimmer Paper using the Ovals Collection Framelit Dies using the 3rd and 5th from the center.
  • The bunnies were stamped with Basic Gray ink.  Their ears were punched out with the Festive Flowers Builder Punch.  Their heads were punched out with the 1-3/8" Circle Punch.  Two of the bunnies have Blushing Bride card stock ear inserts that I fussy cut with the Paper Snips.  The middle bunny has the Blushing Bride Glimmer ear inserts also fussy cut.
  • Their mouth and whiskers are highlighted with the Blushing Bride marker.
  • The middle bunny also has a Bow Paper Clip.
  • The sentiment "Peek-a-boo to someone new"" is from the Suite Sayings stamp set and I used Basic Black Archival ink.  
  • I punched it out with the Washi Tape Punch as well as two ends of Glimmer Paper and attached it all with Dimensionals.

In the Meadow and Sky's the Limit

Have you ever made a spinner card?  It is made by putting a Dimensional between two pennies.
This one doesn't exactly spin, but more or less soars across the sky.



To create this spinner card you will need the Word Window punch.  I put several layers of cardstock on the front which allow for the spin or movement of the plane. Here are the cutting dimensions:
Sahara Sand cardstock base is cut 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
Basic Black cardstock layer is cut 5-1/4" x 4"
Sahara Sand cardstock Paper is cut 3-3/4" x 5"

  • The base of the card is Sahara Sand cut at 5½” x 8½” and scored at 4¼” in the middle.
  • Stamp the mountains from the In the Meadow stamp set with Basic Black Archival ink at the bottom of the 3¾” x 5” Sahara Sand cardstock.  Adhere the small Sahara Sand cardstock to the Basic Black cardstock. Use the Word Window punch and slide it in as far as it will go and punch.  Overlap the first punched area and punch again, creating a track across the front of the card.   
  • Stamp the airplane in Archival Basic Black and use the Sahara Sand marker to color it in.   The propeller is punched out of vellum with the Itty Bitty Accents Flower Punch and attached with 1/8” Silver Mini Brad.
  • You will need 2 pennies to create the spinner portion.  Place one Dimensional between two pennies.  Place another Dimensional on top to attach the airplane.
  • Insert into the opening where the Word Window Punch was used.
  • Ink up “You Send Me Soaring” with Basic Black Archival ink and stamp on the top right of the card and ink up clouds with Black Archival ink to stamp randomly above the mountains. 
  • Put several Dimensionals on the back to attach to the front of the card.

Birthday Blooms with Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper

Just love the new Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper on this card and the Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon.  The flower is from the stamp set Birthday Blooms in the 2016 Occasions catalog.

  • The base of the card is Pool Party card stock cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4".
  • The second layer is Whisper White card stock cut at 5-1/4" x 4".
  • At the bottom of the Whisper White, is the Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper cut at 2" x 5-1/4" and attached with Snail Adhesive.
  • Tear and Tape was put on the back of the Pool Party 3/8" Glitter Ribbon and applied it to middle of the card where the Whisper White and Designer Paper meet.
  • The small flower is stamped with Archival Black on 2" x 3" Whisper White, colored in with markers of Soft Sky, Pool Party, Pear Pizzazz and Mossy Meadow.
  • It is layered onto Pool Party card stock cut at 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". Then it is attached to the right side of the card.  
  • The sentiment "Happiest of Birthdays to You" is stamped with Black Archival ink pad.
