Funny Friday: Creating a Box Card

Welcome everyone! I’ve got a fun box card idea for you featuring an adorable Gramma surfing on her ironing board from the Art Impressions “Loads of Fun” clear stamps set. 

The box card allows you to use your focal point image on the inside but also remains clearly visible from the outside. In this case, it looks like Gramma has abandoned her iron for some fun! 

I cut and scored the box card (template below) then die cut a 3.5″ circle on the front section. I stamped Gramma on the inside flap and colored her with some bright Copic Markers. I also stamped the iron off the edge of the circle and once again on scrap cardstock. Then I colored and cut out the iron and used a bit of foam tape for a little lift. 

Box Card Template

The beauty of this card is that it folds completely flat and fits inside a regular A2 envelope. A win-win!! A cute Surfing Gramma, a Fun Fold, perfect for Funny Friday!!! Enjoy!!

Throwback Thursday – STAMPtember® Edition!

Throwback Thursday Simon Says Stamp

Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday—a trip back in time! For each throwback, we’ll be spotlighting fantastic cards and projects using products from previous releases. The new stuff is always SO fun, but think about all of those great products you’ve collected and set aside. They are STILL AWESOME! And we want to inspire you with fantastic inspiration from our creative archives.

Oh my goodness! We are on the veritable BRINK of STAMPtember®, and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s seriously like Christmas and our birthday all rolled into one with the addition of the biggest crafty celebration on the planet! We hope you are STOKED, because WE sure are!

To whet your appetite, we’re throwing it back to STAMPtember® 2018, and sharing inspiration from last year’s extravaganza. Our  STAMPtember® release is always huge, and you might remember some pretty spectacular products from last year’s STAMPtember® collection. In celebration of the upcoming month of stampy happiness, let’s take a look at some glorious cards created with goodies from our 2018 STAMPtember® release!

First up is this beautiful project from Nichol Spohr:

Nichol Spohr Simon Says Stamp August 2019 Throwback Thursday Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set and Thinking of You die

Alcohol Pearl Inks, Yupo paper, and Alcohol Lift Ink were all a part of the magic that Nichol created with this gorgeous design. The backbone is of course the Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set that was released last STAMPtember®. You can watch her create this card on YouTube HERE, and you can see Nichol’s original post HERE.

Next, let’s throw it back to this clean and graphic design from Kristina Werner:

Kristina Werner Simon Says Stamp August 2019 Throwback Thursday Birthday Numbers stamp set

No matter the number of years (birthday or anniversary or whatnot), the Birthday Numbers stamp set and coordinating dies are perfect for creating custom cards. I love how Kristina added balloons, a party hat, a bow tie, and a smile to this adorable number five. You can find Kristina’s original blog post HERE, and you can see this card come together on YouTube HERE.

And let’s not forget this totally spooky design from Jessica Frost-Ballas:

Jessica Frost-Ballas Simon Says Stamp August 2019 Throwback Thursday Bwahaha stamp set and coordinating dies

Super cool ink blending spritzed with water and glow in the dark embossing powder are all a part of the eerie Halloween design that Jessica scared up using the Bwahaha stamp set and coordinating dies released last STAMPtember®! That sparkly haunted house is unreal! You can find a link to Jessica’s original blog post HERE, and you can also see her create this card on YouTube HERE.

And finally this cutie pie card from Heather Ruwe:

Heather Ruwe Simon Says Stamp August 2019 Throwback Thursday Right Meow stamp set and coordinating dies

Heather admits that she’s not a cat person, but who can resist the Right Meow stamp set? These cool kitties look so cute frolicking about in the Repeating Circles die. I think I need a scarf like the feline in the top left! You can check out Heather’s original blog post HERE.
