Tropical Wishes #1…!


Hi Folks!

Welcome Back for Today’s Step Card!

From ‘the Paper Cut’ Company…’Outer Stair Step Die’

I know this cut as the side step card!

Here is the Die!


The apertures on the die are for lining up on either side of the Card!


Here is the Card I made!


The Tropical Oasis Bundle is on back order, sad face!

I fussy cut ALL the flowers from the Tropical Oasis DSP!


I used Soft Suede Cardstock for mats!


I ran all the Soft Suede mats through the Big Shot in the ‘NEW’

Coastal Weave Embossing Folder!


Here is the Card, opened up!


I hand measured and cut the Whisper White piece and the Soft Suede mat.

I am not giving measurements, they can change, depends on where you place the die!

Hello Friends!

Thanks for peeking back Today!

I am taking a wee break from the Ministry Cards.

Last Week, my friend Gisele and I were online for a

Stamp & Scrapbook Event, put on by some of the Venders from the

Stamp & Scrapbook Expo, we attend in Chantilly, VA about the end of June!

Just a peek at some of what the Venders were highlighting!

Offerings of Coupon Codes for discounts too!

It was fun!

One Vender I bought from, demonstrated dies for

2 Center Step Cards and on Side Step Card!

Oh Yea!

The name of the Company is

The Paper Cut!

There were four different  ‘Step Card’ Dies to choose from,

I bought 3 of the Dies!

The Coupon Code afforded me 25% off!!!!


Here is the First Die I used!


The directions are included in each packet!


Here is the Card I made!


I did have to measure each area and figure out the mat sizes and DSP sizes!


Here is a side view of the step card!


I die cut the critters from the Birthday Bonanza DSP.

I stamped the Koala inside!


Here is how I completed the inside of the Card!


I think the Flash failed on the Camera, that is why it’s ‘blue’ looking!

Grapefruit Grove: one pennant

Whisper White: greeting banner and inside panel

Ministry Cards #5…!

Hello Everyone!

Thanks for peeking in for Today’s Cards!

Awhile back I made some Magnolia Ministry Cards,

I used a Challenge to aid in a layout for them…

Here is that Card!

These turned out beautiful!

The Cardstock is from Michael’s.

It is called Kraft card stock.

I do like the Kraft, but I do feel limited with it.

I wanted to make a real feminine Card, Voila!

I made 10 of these Magnolia Cards for the Card Ministry at Church!

I had another 10 blank card bases in Kraft

I decided to go masculine on these!


Here is the Card!


Yes! Nautical!


Here is the inside of the Card!


So peaceful!

Stamp Sets:

Sailing Home- greeting, lighthouse, anchor, sailboat inside

Wishing You Well- inside sentiment


Night of Navy- greeting, lighthouse, inside sentiment and sailboat


Kraft- card base from Michaels

Very Vanilla- inside panel, and quarter cardstock sheet to stamp and die cut lighthouse, anchor, greeting banner

Poppy Parade- ships wheel

Big Shot- die-cutting machine

Sailing Home Dies- lighthouse, anchor, greeting banner, ships wheel

I used a mini silver brad for ships wheel center


Here is the Card, again!


Sometimes, less is more!


Until the next Post…Blessings to you ALL!

Ministry Cards #3…!

Hello All!

Welcome Back for a peek

at another batch of Ministry Cards!

The Card bases and envelopes were given to me,

 I have added my Stampin’Up! Cardstock and Stamps

to decorate and embellish these Cards!

This batch  is 2 each of 8 colors, making 16 Cards!


Here are the Cards! One of each!


These are all 8 Cards together! (I did make 2 of each color!)

All the Cards are stamped with:

Positive Thoughts stamp set-greeting/inside sentiment

Memento Tuxedo Black Ink- greeting/inside sentiment

Time For Tea stamp set-flourishes above and below the oval cut outs

Pear Pizzazz Ink- flourishes on front and inside,

over and under the oval die cuts!

With my Big Shot I die cut the front oval,

With the Layering Ovals Dies,

From each of the colors,

I die-cut the oval/scallop oval frames.

I used the Scallop oval frames on the front.

With the punched out oval from making the frames,

I adhered to the inside of the cards!

For the greeting/sentiment to peek out!

From the leftover pieces from die cutting the oval/scallop oval frames,

with 2 small punches, I punched out many different colored flowers!

With a 1/8″ Circle Punch, I punched out the little black circles for use

as the flower centers and the butterfly’s bodies!
