Mermaid Fun

Seriously, how could summer be almost over? I want more pool days and sunny rays over here. This Mermaid card reminds me of all those summer vibes and that’s why I wanted to share it today.

This mermaid card is actually a Book Binding Card! Have you seen that before? Using your Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer, Cut a Cardstock base to 11″ x 4 1/4″ and score at 4 1/4″ and at 5 1/2″. Fold the card in half then fold the front flap back again. Use some Stampin’ Seal+ to seal the card shut in the 1 1/4″ space by the main fold, and you have a book binding card! Decorate as desired.

Of course you need the adorable Pirates & Mermaids Stamp Set to make the adorable mermaid card. My friend Christine made this card, and she colored the mermaid with a few Stampin’ Blends markers and then used the Wink of Stella Glitter Pen on top. There are a few different dies used to complete the look!

I hope you all get at least one more trip to the pool/beach/ocean before mermaid season ends! Then, we can at least stamp pretty mermaids! Hope you enjoyed learning how to make a Book Binding card!

Maui Memories

Today I was reminiscing about our awesome Stampin’ Up! trip to Maui this year. When I scrolled pics, I saw two tiny pineapples:

I sent out bunches of these cards to the people who helped and supported me to get on the trip to Maui: my Queens of the Stamp Age team directs, and customers who ordered while I was in Maui. They received some little goodies I collected on the trip, too.

The was the 17th trip Stampin’ Up! has sent us on. It’s for me and a guest, everything is completely free, and they roll out the red carpet. I could have never been to all these places if it weren’t for Stampin’ Up!, and I’m so thankful. Every dollar purchased through me, and everything my team does to sell and share stamps, all helps us earn our next dream vacation!

Ahh… memory lane! Thank you for reading! xoxo

Fun Designer Paper Layout

For my recent trip to Maui, I made swap cards to trade with the other demonstrators. I love all the fun variety of cards I got! Here is the card I created:

This is an awesome layout because it is so simple! Here is how to do it:

  • Cut your card base to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″. (Mine is Basic Gray.)
  • Cut another layer the same color as your card base to 4″ x 5 1/4″. (Attach with dimensionals.)
  • Using any Designer Paper, cut three coordinating pieces to 3 3/4″ x 1 5/8″. Adhere using Seal+ across card front.
  • Embellish as desired!

I used the new Color & Contour bundle to cut a black scalloped label, and stamped/embossed one of the greetings in white powder. I finished with a twine bow and a few gems. Easy Peasy! Here are a few more views of the card:

Hope you enjoyed seeing my Maui card swap! Here is the supply list so you you can re-create it.
