Kangaroo & Company Easel Card

Hi there papercrafters.

I have been playng with the stamp set that is in our new mini catalog. Products are available January thru June 2021. If you love animal cards you are going to certainly have fun creating with this stamps set and coordinating dies. There is even a baby kangaroo, or Joey as they’re known. The best part is the die cut for the kangaroo has a slit at the pouch and little Joey sits right inside. Fabulous for a new baby card and fun for anything else.

Here is the project

There are several Diamond Fold Easel Cards out there but this one is unique. The typical design requires a 6″ square envelope, which is harder to find or make and also requires extra postage.So I created this revised version that will fit in a standard A2 size card envellope. Here is a picture that compares the two sizes when completed.

For my version today you will need to cut the following:

Bermuda Bay card stock – 8 1/2″ X 4 1/4″. Score along the 8 1/2″ side at 2 1/8″ and 4 1/4″.

White card stock – A cut two pieces 2″ X 4, two squares cut at 2 7/8″ and one square cut at 2″. The smaller /2″ square will be cut in half diagonally. The diagonal pieces and one of the 2″ X 4″ pieces will be run through an embossing folder, I used the Greenery folder.

From Designer Series Paper (DSP) you will cut two squares 3″.

On the 8 1/2″ X 4 1/4″ piece you will mark with a pencil a tick mark along the 4 1/4″ edge at 2 1/8″. While the card is folder you will put it into your Stampin Trimmer at the pencil mark and cut up to the 2 1/8″ score line on both thicknesses.

Adhere the embossed 2″ X 4″ piece on the front between the two score lines.

Layer the white card stock and the DSP. Place on the two layers at the tip. Adhere the front one only with adhesive on the bottom half, so that it will stand up when opened.

Adhere the two embossed triangle pieces to the inside above the square. The 2″ X 4″ piece that is not embossed will go on the inside between the two score lines. This is where you can add a sentiment if desired.

Stamp the Kangaroo, the baby kangaroo, or Joey as it’s called and the floral bouquet. I colored these in with my Stamp and Blend alcohol markers so that I could shade them. After coloring use the coordinating die cuts to cut out.

Use the Double Oval Punch to cut out a white scalloped oval and a solid oval in Bermuda Bay. Adhere together and then add the bouquet using a Dimensional. Adhere the kangaroo with Dimensionals also. Be careful not to put a Dimensional at the kangatroo’s pouch. There is a slit and that is where the Joey will fit in.

Isn’t this just the cutest? I love it and have made several already. It will make a great baby card.

Approaching Perfection

Feb. 17,2021

As of today there is only 11 days left to shop and earn free rewards with our wonderful Stampin Up Sale-A-Bration(SAB). This SAB catalogs ends February 28,2021.

When I first saw this set I didn’t particularly care for it; however I had reward points so I figured I’d get it. Well, was I ever surprised when I started playing with it. I grabbed some old DSP from my stash and decided to give it a try. OMG – as the kids say – The sentiments are so fun and as you can see within less than an hour I created these 5 cards. The sentiments truly inspired me.

This card uses the beautiful Celebrate Sunflowers Stamp
I love when I can create my own DSP with stamps. These bright and cheery colors are great.

Don’t you just love the sentiments?

If you need a catalog or if you need help placing your order please dont hesitate to contact me.

Happy Stampin

The package includes everything to create four beautiful cards. You just use your adhesive of choice and then decide who’s day you would like to brighten with a handmade card.

Here are the photographs of these projects:

This is a window card with the adorable birds showing through, sorry the picture has glare from the window sheet.

Card # 2 is:

This card uses a patchwork technique with the addition of texture created with your embossing folder of choice. On this example I used the tufted embossing folder.

This is the cutes shaker card I have ever seen. We are debuting the molded jar shape and coordinating punch to make this card.

Card # 4:

This card features some of the gorgeous DSP paper from the brand new backgrounds packet and the Forever Fern die cuts.

The fee for this workshop is $15.00 and you can pay via PayPal, cash, or check. If you need additional information please call me (708) 373-9779.

The second option is to join me for a Facebook Live event and create these beautiful cards:
