Cubed Pop Up Card Tutorial

Cubed Pop Up Card Cookie Monster

Hello Friends,

Cookies make me think of Cookie Monster.  Depending on who's in the car with me, it can be fun to let Cookie Monster lead the way on my Waze App.  If Joe is with me skip the Cookie Monster voice.  If grandkids are with me, Cookie Monster is good for an adventure.  When I first saw the cookie stamps from the Nothing's Better Than stamp set, I knew that I would eventually need to make Cookie Monster Card complete with cookies.  Such a fun-loving guy deserves a Pop Up Card in his honor, right?  Of course, once I discovered just how fun Cubed Pop Up Cards are to make, I couldn't stop at just one card.   This is a Fancy Fold Card that you will want to make again and again.

Keep going for more Cubed Pop Up Card ideas and a tutorial.

3 Nothing's Better Than and Beautiful Autumn Projects

Beautiful Autumn/Nothing's Better Than Stampin' Up!


Hello Friends,

It looks like this week's binge bundle is the Nothing's Better Than Bundle.  Today, I paired the Nothing's Better Than Bundle with the Beautiful Autumn Bundle to make 2 cards and 1 bookmark.  Yesterday, I paired the Nothing's Better Than Bundle with the Jar of Flowers Bundle to make this Gift Box.  Stay Tuned, Friday's Card Tutorial will make you hungry.  Yum! Yum!

Nothing's Better Than Stampin' Up!

Colors for today's projects are Merry Merlot, Soft Sea Foam, Gray Granite, Mossy Meadow, Early Espresso, and Rococo Rose.  Note:  The Rococo Rose Ink was too dark for my cup, so I stamped off once for the perfect cup and saucer color.  You may also want to stamp off the Mossy Meadow Ink for the acorn cap.

Beautiful Autumn Stampin' Up!

I'm lovin' the little retro cup and saucer from the Nothing's Better Than Bundle.  Paired with the Beautiful Autumn Bundle, it makes a quick and easy bookmark.  Note:  The sentiment was originally one long sentiment.  I snipped it into smaller segments to fit the whimsical bookmark style.

Beautiful Autumn/Nothing's Better Than Stampin' Up!

My final card started with a precut and scored Note Card and Envelope.  All I had to do was stamp and punch to make this adorable smaller card.
