Saturday Sharing! New Video Tutorial sharing Inlaid Die Cutting Technique

As requested I have made a new video for you today sharing how to do this Inlaid Die Cutting Technique. It's quite a long video, but not complicated, and the results are really lovely so I hope you have a chance to give it a go but first lets take a look at the card I made during the video shall we?
 I used the Butterflies Thinlits dies again with the Greetings Thinlits and changed up the colours to Mint Macaron and Black instead of Watermelon and Black, you can see that (original) version HERE.
 Nice and flat, perfect for posting! ;-)
 And a top view! So which is your favourite colour combo??
So, lets take a look at this video!!
Well, I hope you enjoyed this extra Saturday treat? 
Please feel free to Pin this picture so you can easily find this tutorial again. 
And please remember to link back here if you have a go so others can find this tutorial too! 
Thanks as ever for visiting today and I'll be back tomorrow with a new card for you again :-)
Have a fab day and
Happy Stamping!

Mini Pop Up Card in a Box using Stampin' Up's Guy Greetings

This post is all about Guy Greetings again, this is such a great stamp set for men's cards :-) 
Today's card is the one I made for my FiL for Father's Day and I forgot to share with you at the time! I love these mini pop up cards and I have lots of fun ideas to use them so lets start with this men's design, (you could easily change out the fathers day sentiment for a birthday one) and I also decorated a matching bag to go with it...
*Note: You can see how to make these pop up cards in my VIDEO TUTORIAL HERE*
 I added Washi around the outside to decorate the box, as before
 Stamped the top of the box
 and this is how it unfolded
 The card as it was pulled out. Notice the little spots? They aren't in Guy Greetings so do you know where they are from?? Yep, they are from the Sweet Stack stamp set!!
and of course I stamped the bag to match too...
I sure hope boys like ribbon too ;-) 
Well, Dad said he did anyway! lol
So, I hope you've enjoyed today's post and this different version of a mini pop up card? 
'Till tomorrow,
Stampin' Hugs,

Inlaid Die Cutting Technique with Stampin' Up's Bold Butterflies and Pretty Petals DSP Stack.

Apologies as I didn't manage to blog yesterday. This was because I had a sewing day here at home. I'm making (have nearly finished actually) a new picnic blanket. A few things I have learnt (for me) about sewing this last few weeks: I make my own life harder by over complicating things ;-), sewing takes a lot longer than you think it will, it takes over the whole house and the mess! Let's not even go there!! I do enjoy it though but it's definitely going to continue be a once in a while hobby for me. I prefer the speed and accuracy of card and paper if I'm honest. That said I have some lovely new fabric coming my way so I will have to play with that soon ;-)
CLASS NEWS: I have added a last minute All Day Card Class for the 18th, 20th or 21st July. More details can be found HERE.
OK, So onto todays card. Is it OK to say I adore this card? I know, it's probably not very right and proper to say that about one of your own cards but every once in a while a card just comes out exactly as I thought it would, if not better! Part of the love for this card is the colours. I love Watermelon Wonder teamed with White and Black (see these cards too), it's perfectly retro with a modern twist. Take a look...
 This card uses the inlaid die cutting technique teamed with the gorgeous Pretty Petals DSP stack.
 Making it completely flat! 
I was thinking I might do a little video sharing this technique? 
If you would like that please do let me know!
 I added Crystal Effects to the greetings thinlit word and a few white Perfect Accents
 *Sigh* and a top view to finish today :-)
Well, that's all from me for today.
Ill be back tomorrow with another card and I'll try to get a photo of my pretty Picnic Blanket if I can get it finished and if it stops showering long enough of course ;-)
Thanks for looking today,
Stampin' Hugs,
