This is a gatefold card but with a twist. The big coffee cup is popped up and hold the side gates in place. It unfolds showing several panels.
Folded the card measures 4×5.5 inches and will fit in an A2 size envelope. To make this card you need a piece of cardstock that is 11×5.5 inches. On the 11 inch side score on the following marks 1.75, 3.5, 5.25, 5.75, 7.5, 9.25. I cut panels for each section a quarter of an inch smaller than the one before so they nest inside of each other. The large coffee cup is from the Sweet N Sassy Stamps I Like Big Cups stamp set. I fussy cut the cup out then layered the cup with stamps from the Delightfully Delicate Background stamp and the Typewriter Text Background stamp.
The sentiment on the cup is from the Fill Me Up Clear set and the Love Wordfetti set. I only used a “you are” from the Love Wordfetti set to complete my sentiment.
I think this a fun “guy coffee card”! Thank you so much for visiting me today!

Do you know anyone who needs a little encouragement? I think we all do. 2020 has been a different and a tough year for most. So I made a card that I can give to remind someone that God loves them more than they can imagine or know.
This card is pretty easy to make. The back ground XO paper is from a Valentine’s paper pad in my stash. I created the main panel by using the same Love stamp over and over. It’s from the Much Love Stamp set, which is also the stamp set of the month. It’s free with a $75 purchase for December
Once I added all the stamping in a pale pink, I stamped over the top in black my main sentiment, Love You More. I then added the dash with a black marker and added the God after it using the Marker Alpha set.
Lastly the heart came from the Forever and Always stamp set.
Ok, so now you’ve seen my latest card, here is the list of where to hop. Don’t for get to leave a comment on each blog to be eligible to win the $25 prize!

Whether you need some tissue because it’s allergy season or just because things are a little tough, it’s a great time to give tissue cards.
These little cuties hold a travel tissue packet . They also open and close so you can write a message and access the tissue. These are a cute little pick me up to give your friends and family or even a total stranger. Here are the items I used to make them and how to put them together.
To form the base you will need a piece of cardstock that is 9.75×4.25. Next you will need to score your base going left to right at 2.25 inches, 3.25, 5.5, 6.5, 8.75. This will fit most travel tissue packets. Then you will want to die cut an oval or rectangle out of the panel that is 2.25 inches wide, the one in the center. Burnish all your score lines and and adhere the last 1 inch section to the 1st one inch section. If you plan on stamping a pattern on your card stock like I did, then stamp before you burnish and glue the score lines, so your base is still flat. Once your base is finished, add some double sided tape to the back of the tissue packet and insert and stick it to the bottom of the holder you made. This will keep the tissue from sliding out, so your card will be portable. Make sure to open the tissue packet so the tissue can pop out of your opening and be easy to pull out.
Below are close ups of each tissue card and the stamps I used. All stamps are from Fun Stampers Journey, which is sold on the Spellbinder’s web site.
For this card I used the Spread Happiness Stamp and die set for the front of the card and the background stamping. The sentiment from the inside is from the Backyard Blooms Stamp set. I colored the flowers with Color Splash pencils, which are water color pencils. The base is Pineapple Smoothie cardstock with Lavender Fusion Gingham ribbon.
This tissue card has a base in Bubble Gum Cardstock. I stamped the background with the ATS stamp Ornate Blooms (no longer available). The front and inside sentiments are from the Divatude Stamp set. Black ribbon is from my stash.
I used Lavender Fusion cardstock for the base. The hydrangea and sentiments come from the Bloom Burst stamp set (no longer available). I used Huckleberry ink on the flower and Lemongrass on the leaves. The ribbon is from my stash.
I used Tin Pail cardstock, which is a really soft grey. I stamped it with the Flannel Life Background Stamp in Riverstone Ink. The critters are from the It’s Cold Outside stamp and die set. Inside sentiment is from Backyard Blooms. Ribbon is from my stash.

I have been having so much fun making envelope journals. I had never made these before and had no idea how easy they are and how much fun! I posted one on social media and was asked several times for a tutorial. So I have a Youtube video for you on the process. All the stamped images on these journals are from Sweet n Sassy Stamps. Below is an affiliate link that will take you to their site and will provide me with a small commission.
If you want to create along with me, you will need 6 envelopes and 6 matching card bases.

I love how digi stamps are instant gratification! No waiting for shipping or even leaving your house. Graciellie Designs has some beautiful images and recently I sat down and played with Ice Cream Bouquet.
I made 3 cards using the same image. The card in the front is a traditional A2 size, 4.25×5.5 inches. The 2 in the back are business envelop size, known as slim line cards.
For this card, I sized the image to fit an A2 size card. That’s one of the great things about digi stamps, is they can be any size you need! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers. I fussy cut the image out and then used foam squares to pop it up on the card panel. The card panel is actually a gel press print that I had in my stash. I added a sentiment from the Ice Cream Bouquet digi stamp set and used foam squares to pop it up.
Here are the slim line cards. I enlarged the image to almost fill an 8.5×11 inch piece of cardstock. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir alcohol ink markers and then cut it in half. It was a little scary to cut the paper in half after I spent all that time coloring! But it worked out ok. I mounted each on a piece of printed cardstock and then a black piece of cardstock and then mounted them to a card base. I did fussy cut the image and mounted them on foam squares. These cards will fit in a standard business envelop. The sentiments are from the Ice Cream Bouquet stamp set also.

I’m so excited, I am a guest designer for Sweet n Sassy Stamps for April 2020! I had the chance to play with 2 brand new stamp sets before their launch. So today I will show you one of the cards I made.
I think it came out so cute! I used the new Country Garden Stamp set, the existing Fur-ever Friends stamp set and the Tea for Two set, both illustrated by Jennifer Nilsson. Here are the sets.
To make the card I used water color paper and did a quick background using my Jane Davenport water color paints. I colored the all the images with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Ink Markers and popped them up on foam squares. I did fussy cut the cute bunny to layer behind the wheel barrow. I used printed paper from my stash and a scallop rectangle die from my stash. I added blue and pink sequins to finish.
