Divinity Designs July Release

Divinity Designs has some really great new products for the month of July!  I have 3 cards today, and then I'll be sharing more throughout the month, but you can see the whole release here.

My first card was alot of fun to make!  These dinosaurs popping up out of the grass are so cute!  But what is new about this card is the FUN FOLD!  This card uses a new die called Surprise Box Card with Layers die!  I also used some paper from one of three new paper pads.  So much fun and versatile for many occasions - you can check out what my teammies created using this card fold die on the blog!

When you open the card, it has a pop up box with "floating" balloons!  

I went with 5 dinos, 5 candles and 5 balloons - fun for a boy turning 5 ☺


My 2nd card uses the new Flip Flops Layering Combo Dies - they are so fun to mix colors and aren't they so CUTE?!  I also used some paper from one of three new paper pads called Pretty Patterns 1 (slimline sized 6" x 9").  I tore the bottom of the blue paper to reveal the white underneath to resemble water up on the sand, and then layered some yellow from the same pad for the horizon.  The sentiment and birds were from the April Blessings Box (Beach Silhouettes and Maholo Stamp/Die Duo).

And for my 3rd card I used the new foiling plate called Leaf Background Foiling Plate.  I also hot foiled the sentiment from the Bold Blessings Foil/Die Duo, and I also foiled a regular die from the Butterfly Trio dies!  How cool to be able to foil an outline of your regular dies!  Such a beautiful and professional look to see the foiling on a handmade card!


Here's a look at the NEW products I used.

A wonderful release Kris, and I do love the projects you have created - that pop-up box card is amazing, and I think the flip flop dies are fabulous!

I'm sure your 5 y.o. will love that and hopefully will treat it gingerly. Cool flip flop card and lovely foiled card. I'm not getting into the foiling plates, too much stuff and not enough space or time. xoxo

Multi-Tiered Pop Up Penguins

 Welcome friends!  I had a great time last night on a Zoom call with my SU! upline and 8 others in her downline group - so fun to "meet" them and put faces to names and craft together - for 3 hours!  :)  We all worked on our own projects and they were so diverse, love it!   For my zoom project, I created a multi-tiered pop up box card --- no surprise there, right guys?!  BUT, this one was on a much larger scale and needs a 6 1/8" square envelope, which I had to make myself, but with the help of my nifty envelope punch board , it was pretty easy... PRETTY being the operative word as I used some the same Whimsy & Wonder dsp from SU! as I used on my card!   I will include the measurements for making this card below my photos, so keep scrolling :)  The Whimsy & Wonder dsp has holographic striped paper that I used on the sides of my box.   These cute penguins and matching punch are bundled in the new Holiday Catalog, July - Dec. 2021, and so is the Whimsy & Wond

Multi-Layered Cube Card

Ok y'all, those who know me know I love a card challenge - especially fancy folds!  So when I saw this gorgeous card of Lavonne Schwendeman's I had to try it.  And as impressive as this style of card is, I prolly won't make another of these for a long while as it took me quite a long time to make.  But it was worth it for my daughter who's birthday is in a couple of weeks!  Maybe I'll make a (fall/winter) one for my other daughter who's birthday is next May, LOL!     I love how the sentiment and larger butterflies actually POP OUT away from the card base!   Here's a view from the top-ish.... The "Lovely Wishes" foam words are pink foiled on the front and are shiney when the light hits.  They are attached to clear window sheets that are then glued to the cardstock in front of them.   The flourishes were pretty flimsy, so I cut out 3 of each and glued together to make them more sturdy. Each size of butterfly is embossed with a different texture - th

Tutorial - Origami 4-Drawer Easel Card

 Happy Sunday crafty friends!  I was asked for instructions after posting pictures of this box card on a FB group, so here it is!   While I am not the original creator of the 4-drawer easel card that were all the rage 10 years ago, I thought of a way to create the drawers from designer paper ,  when others were creating it using cardstock.  Some had dies that cut the drawers and others were clever enough to come up with the correct measurements to cut and score and tape, but I couldn't wait to find what I was looking for so I just made a simple origami fold box for the drawers and wha-la!  It worked ... and is prettier than plain cardstock IMO.  :)   So I'm here to share it with y'all again, this time using Stampin' Up!'s Ornate Garden Suite (stamps, dies and paper!)   Supplies Needed: - (4) 6-inch pieces of designer series paper - (2) 4 ¾” coordinating designer paper (or can use same   as 6” pcs.) - (3) 8 ½ x 11” sheets of cardstock – can be same or different color

Tutorial - Box Cards W/O Dies

 Hello again!  I'm back with 2 more box cards using some brand new stamps and dies from the upcoming SU! Holiday mini catalog & SAB and a tutorial on how you can make these without using special dies! First I'll show you a card that uses special dies that make it super quick & easy to create the basic box base to showcase all your fun images, and then I will show you how you can make a very similar card without using the dies.  This is a fun new stamp set featured in the upcoming SU! Holiday Mini Catalog called "Penguin Place" - I bought the bundle, so it has a punch that goes with it to punch out the sitting/standing penguin outline, the white inner piece, and the feet.  I had to fussy cut the trees, gifts, hats & scarves and the sliding penguin.  This is one set I wish they had made a die set to match for all those smaller pieces.   The Box base is created with dies by  My Favorite Things  called " Outside the Box Level Up Die-namics ".  My
