With your subscription, you'll get illustrated, step-by-step instructions for 10 wonderful projects for only $10!

Short & Sweet Saturday - Swirly Bird


This week's Short & Sweet Saturday card features the fun stamp set, Swirly Bird and the greeting stamp set, Designer Tin of Cards. Don't you just love the font? I can't believe how fast this card came together. It's definitely one that can be made many times in no time!

All of my Short & Sweet Saturday (S&SS) cards are quick and easy to make, so they're perfect if you need to make a card last minute. I always include complete instructions on how to make my Short & Sweet cards, too.


Card Instructions:
  1. Fold a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Peekaboo Peach Cardstock in half to form the card base. Attach a 5-1/2" x 2"' piece of multi-color brick paper from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack to the bottom half of the card base. It should be about a 1/4" above the bottom edge of the card base.
  2. Stamp the "Celebrate your day" stamp from the Designer Tin of Cards Stamp Set onto the upper, right corner of a 4-1/4" x 3" piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock using the Tuxedo Black Memento Pad.
  3. Using the Swirly Bird Stamp Set, stamp the swirly flowers and leaves onto bottom and left-side of the Very Vanilla Cardstock. The large swirly flower stamp is stamped with the Peekaboo Peach Classic Stampin' Pad, the medium-sized swirly flower stamp is stamped with the Blushing Bride Classic Stampin' Pad, the small swirly flower stamp is stamped with the Sweet Sugarplum Classic Stampin' Pad, and both leaf stamps are stamped with the Emerald Envy Classic Stampin' Pad. See pictures for placement of flowers and leaves.
  4. Attach the stamped piece to the center of a 4-3/8" x 3-1/8" piece of Basic Black Cardstock, and then attach it to the center of the card base.

Thoughtful Branches Thank You Card


Today's card is the card that my Technique Stamp Club is making this week. I'm teaching them the Baby Wipe Technique. I used the technique on the leaves of the trees, and the single leaf.

This card features the exclusive Thoughtful Branches Bundle that is available until August 31, or while supplies last. If you purchase this bundle from me, you can get my illustrated, step-by-step tutorial for four cards that feature this bundle, and get the consumable supplies to make them FREE. Scroll down past the supplies list in this post or CLICK HERE to find out more.

I also used a new designer paper that is coming out in the 2016 Holiday Catalog, and it's called Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). You won't find it in the supplies list right now, but I'll add it after September 1 when it becomes available.

I CASEd this card from one that Julie Davison made, and she CASEd it from a card on p. 48 in the upcoming Holiday Catalog. I love the layout!


Since this card is a perk for my Technique Club, I'm not going to share the complete instructions out of fairness to them. I will give you the dimensions of the pieces, though. Beginning from the card base up:

Cardstock Dimensions:
  1. Cajun Craze:  4-1/4" x 11"
  2. Soft Suede:  2-3/4" x 4-3/4"
  3. Very Vanilla:  2-1/2" & 3"
  4. Petals & Paisleys Specialty DSP:  2-1/2" x 1-1/2"
  5. 5/8" Burlap Ribbon:  5"
  6. Mint Macaron:  4" x 1"
  7. Copper Metallic Thread:  Enough to wrap around three fingers three times.
  8. Very Vanilla (leaf):  1-1/2" x 1-1/2"
