I have just unpacked my box of new products and with so much choice I picked this cute turtle to create this Fancy Fold Easel card. The Turtle Friends bundle which is on Page 56 of the Annual Catalogue includes a fun stamp set and coordinating punch. Punches enable quick creations and that’s always a good thing when I’m in need of a card in a hurry.

Yes, I’m a cardmaker but I can be very slack with sending cards out on time. How cute is this card for those times when you miss a special someone’s birthday?

Easel Fold Measurements

Cardstock 21cm x 14.8cm (score at 5.2cm and 10.5cm on the long side)
DSP panels – 9.9cm x 7.1cm (2 pieces), 9.9cm x 14.2cm (for the inside)
Mountain Fold the score lines
The sentiment is propped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals so the card can sit up.

I stamped the turtle outline in Early Espresso. The shell was inked up in Old Olive and then I added some Evening Evergreen around the edges of the stamp using a sponge dauber. This gave the shell some nice variation in colour. Once I stamped the image, I coloured around the turtle with a combination of Old Olive and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Blends.

For the inside of the card, I fussy cut the pot and leaves from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP, adding a slit with my Paper Snips so the leaves could fit inside the pot. I added some extra shading with Gray Granite Stampin’ Blends. These 2 sentiments are one stamp which I cut in half to give me more ways to use them. It’s really easy to do and once you cut the first one … the possibilities are endless!

Bird Ballad Scalloped Note Card Set

I’ve got a note card set for you today using a lovely set of Scalloped Note Cards and Envelopes from the new cataloue.

Both the envelopes and note cards have a dainty scalloped edging and there are 5 each of Balmy Blue, Old Olive, Light Pink and Terracotta Tile. This gives you 20 note cards and envelopes for $14.00 which makes it .70 cents a set. 

Decorating these were easy with the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper. The colours were just perfect for these note cards. I used the same simple layout on all the cards. 

The other day I spent a bit of time fussy cutting several images from these papers. I mixed and matched the birds with my cards today. 

Create a set of handmade cards with bird

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits to die cut my frames. For the bottom layer I first tried Basic Black but felt that was too harsh so opted for Basic Gray and liked this much better as it was a softer look.

First card is Old Olive and I’ve added the lovely floral paper on the base. 

This is the Light Pink card and for my die cut square I used Petal Pink which coordinated with the paper I had used for the background. Are you loving the designs on the paper as much as I am?

Terracotta Tile card base but I did my die cut square in Calypso Coral. Can you tell? Someone didn’t read the back of the pack very well!

A Balmy Blue card with a pretty blue bird to match. 

The Gingham Gala sequins came in just the right colours to embellish these 4 cards. Stampin’ Up! are spot on for coordination. I used the Itty Bitty Birthdays and Detailed with Love (retired but I had missed moving it out of my currents) stamp sets for the sentiments to cover a variety of occasions.
