Double Pocket Card with Front Flap

In planning our club meeting, I've had fun casing some cards for samples. SO much inspiration out there - just not enough days in an hour to accomplish everything.

Hee's a little "plant pot" I made for treats!!

Here's a card we did as a make and take at the club meeting.



And here's the tutorial on how to do this technique.

Stamp Set: It's Beautiful Stampin Around Wheel, Many Happy Returns
Card Stock: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Regal Rose
Embellishments: Pretty in Pink Grosgrain Ribbon
Punches: 1 1/4" 1" and 1/2" Circle Punches; Double Rectangle

I used a piece of copy paper and cut it 8 1/2" x 3" - then scored 1/2" on each long side. I then punched the center with the circle punches. I attached Whisper White Card Stock to the back of the copy paper with dotto adhesive and rolled the It's Beautiful Stampin' Around Wheel down the center with Rose Red. I then sponged each circle with a dauber in Regal Rose classic ink. When I took off the copy paper, there was a beautiful layout of circles with flowers in them!! I rolled the Pretty in Pink card stock with the It's Beautiful Stampin Around Wheel also. Easy way to make your OWN design prints!!

And...until April 30th you can order the Stitched Exotics stamp set on page 83 of the Spring and Summer Idea Book 2008 and you receive the It's Beautiful Stampin Around Wheel absolutely FREE ($8.50 value). Contact me to place your order before April 30th. You can view other free wheels by click on the link in the right column under "Free Wheelin" offer.

Here's a Mother's Day Card Catherine did as a make 'n take. Isn't it stunning?



Stamp Set: Live Your Dream, All Holidays
Card Stock: Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi, Groovy Guava, Whisper White, Afternoon Tea Designer Paper
Ink: Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Chocolate Chip, Glorious Green Stampin' Write Markers
Punches: Ticket Corner

Catherine used the stampin' write markers to color this flower and the sentiment. It really turned out beautiful - very vibrant.

Carousel Notes

There are SO many beautiful cards made with the Carousel Notes that are offered in the Occasions Mini Catalog (check them out on page 7). These come 12 to a package in Soft Sky, Groovy Guava and Wild Wasabi and have 12 Chocolate Chip Envelopes so they can be mailed.

Card Stock: Soft Sky Carousel Note, Chocolate Chip, Afternoon Tea Designer Paper
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft Ink, Clear Embossing Powder

One tip I found: You can use a CD to cut out the matching cardstock - works great!!

This is such an easy card and SO cute. Perfect for a little girl - or for a BIG girl!! Another inspiration from SCS



Stamp Set: Short & Sweet
Card Stock: Rose Red Textured Card Stock, Regal Rose, Whisper White, Rose Red Designer Prints
Ink: Rose Red
Embellishments: Rich Regals Brads
Punches: Round Tab Punch, Small and Large Oval Punches

I punched out the Rose Red Designer Print with the round tab punch - folded it over to make the darling little purse. I cut a small triangle for the flap and added the brad. For the handle, I punched out a small oval in rose red and then lined up the large punch over the small oval cutout and punched. A nice handle (cut the punch out in half)

After doing the cool double pocket cards I then found another one that I just had to try. This one actually has a front flap. I added a little extra cardstock to the front and think they turned out really cute!! Click here the tutorial on making these cards with the double pockets and front flap demonstrated by Barb Mullikin. Thanks Barb for the great inspiration!

Beautiful inspiring cards - love the colours you've used - especially that blue - we don't have that yet in the UK. Could you share the template with me please?
