Hi everyone and welcome to the June edition of the Ink & Share Blog Hop. This month we are featuring summer cards.
I decided to use a stamp set that I had received during the April OnStage. All demonstrators were given this stamp set and I thought it would be a great set to highlight during this hop. The set is called Animal Outings and whats great about this set is that there is a matching set for your big shot. It’s available as a bundle or individually.
To make the folded designer paper background:
- You’ll need a piece of designer series paper cut to 5-1/4″ x 10″.
- On both ends of the short side of the paper mark at 2-1/8″ and at 3-1/8″.
- On both top and bottom of the long side of the paper, mark at 4-1/2″ and 5-1/2″.
- Cut on the diagonal, using the marks as your guide.
- Score across the short side of the paper at 1″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/2″, 3″, 4″, 4-1/2″, 5-1/2″, 6″, 7″, 7-1/2″, 8-1/2″, and 9″.
- Using your bone folder fold the designer series paper in an accordian fashion starting from the outside in.
- Secure to your card base using tear tape or the adhesive of your preference.

What did you think of my card? Leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts.
I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring projects that are patriotic to the country the demonstrator lives in. Fellow demonstrators from all over Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and United States are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from Ginger’s blog. She had a fabulous project!
I decided to use Colorful Seasons stamp set for it’s maple leaf and the Happy Birthday thinlet. Combining the Labeler Alphabet stamp set with the Bunch of Banners framelits allowed me to customize the card to specifically feature Canada and reaching it’s 151st year of commemoration.
A helpful note** It almost looks like ghosting on some of the letters and after making three banners trying to be very careful, I finally looked on the stamp case and realized that that is actually how the stamps are. Note to self — intentional imperfections are perfect and that’s just fine!
The multi-purpose adhesive sheets made it a snap to get the Happy Birthday out and stick it to the card. Those sheets may become my new “go-to” for adhering shapes run through the Big-Shot!
I also LOVE the new glitter shimmer paper – no getting covered in glitter which was awesome and ran through the Big-Shot with no issues as all! I’ve stayed away from the glitter papers in the past just because I end up wearing more of it than I want but not anymore! They are back in my favourites 🙂
My photography skills need a little work and this card is really lovely, “lipstick lovely” in person 🙂 Please add a comment and let me know what you liked about my design.

Hi everyone! Here is a list of the supplies I used for my sneak peek card yesterday. Pick A Pennant is a new stamp set that will be coming out in June (Item 146499.) It’s also going to be sold as a bundle with the matching Playful Pennants framelits – unfortunately I don’t have those yet so I had to fussy-cut the banners… luckily, it wasn’t that fussy and took no time at all!
This was a fast and simple card to make. The stamp set wasn’t a favourite of mine and had I not received it at OnStage, I’m not sure I would have purchased it. However, after plying with it for this card, I’ve changed my mind! I’m really grateful that I have it and can see a lot of opportunities to make some wonderful, personalized cards.
