Cut It Up!


Welcome to the Pals Blog Hop for August 2016.  We are thankful you stopped by to take a look at our new 2016 Blog Hop monthly themes.  This month we are featuring projects using our favorite Stampin’ Up! cutting tools. There are so many wonderful punches, framelits and edgelits available that help make papercrafting more detailed and fun! We hope to provide you with lots of ideas and that you enjoy our creations.

You may just be starting the Blog Hop or may have come from the previous link from the Line-up on the Pals Blog Hop listing shown below.  The full lineup will help you move along from blog to blog so you may see all the projects.

StampinUp CAS All Occassion Card made with Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper (DSP), Butterflies Thinlits, andYou're So Sweet and Rose Wonder stamp sets , designed by demo Lynn Tague. See more cards and gifts ideas at #BeyondBeachesandBlessings #PalsBlogHop

We have so many great punches, thinlits, framelits, and edgelits it’s difficult to choose just one!  This card is a diagonal easel-style card on a base of Whisper White cardstock; a design inspired by a homemade card I received last week from my mother.

To create this card, I used paper from the Blooms & Bliss Designer Series Paper pack along with Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Don’t let this card fool you!  It was quick and easy to make.  For the sentiment and shaker, I used the You’re So Sweet and Mini Treat Bag Thinlits.  For the butterfly embelishment, I used the Watercolor Wings stamp sets along with the Butterflies thinlits, using Rich Razzellberry, Sweet Sugarplum and Blushing Bride Classic Ink Pads.  For the shaker material I used Clear Mica Flakes, which I am pleased to share will be returning in the new Holiday catalog (a little sneak peek, for you).

When you open this card, it folds into an easel as shown in the picture below.

The Rich Razzleberry sentiment on the inside of the card and the outline around the sentiment are from the Rose Wonder stamp set and the frame was cut from the Rose Garden Thinlits.  If you don’t have the Rose Wonder stamp set, I encourage you to add it to your collection of card-making supplies; this set has many great sentiments in beautiful fonts.

Well, what do you think of today’s “Cut It Up!” card?  Please leave me some feedback.  If you liked this card, wait until you see the alternate versions I created using this same design to show off some of our other SU!

    Love your card. At first look, it looks like a straight forward pretty but traditional card. Then on opening it, it becomes a butterfly from a cocoon. I have seen these designs before, but have never made one. Now I’ll have to try it. I’ve signed up for your blog to get your alternate color combos of this design and other creations you make. Glad I found you. TFS

    Love all your versions of this easel card. Do you have the directions to recreate this style? It’s a perfect fun fold idea to show my Hostess club. Thanks in advance.
