Trifold Miura Card | Heron Habitat

The Great White Heron and the Great Blue Heron are common visitors near our home, so it’s no surprise that the Heron Habitat Bundle immediately caught my eye. This beautiful stamp set creates wonderful masculine cards as well.

I used a technique using Sponge Daubers to add multi-colors to the heron and the greenery. It’s the perfect way to add several colors to one stamp image without using dye-based markers!

The Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper is quickly becoming my favorite. The gold foil accents provide the perfect amount of shimmer making it perfect for any occasion card!

Trifold Miura Card | Happier Than Happy

Gina loves all things whimsical and the Happier Than Happy Bundle was the first thing on her new catalog Wish List. And she wasted no time using it! She’s paired the Bundle with the coordinating Happy Forest Friends Designer Series Paper for this precious baby card.

Just like the heron, Gina added color to the owl using a Sponge Dauber. Not only does this provide the two-tone effect, it’s a great way to add texture to a solid image.

One of the highlights of these images is the Stampin’ Up! patent design called Distinktive. Distinktive stamps have a photographic appearance with amazing details that are easily accomplished by just inking the stamp!


And is this trifold card wasn’t enough, Gina added a pocket to the front panel to hold a gift card. Great for a baby shower but also perfect for bridal showers, birthdays and holidays. The project sheet includes all the cutting dimensions.

You can’t resist smiling when you see the cheerful Butterfly Kisses Designer Paper. This abundant pack of 6″x6″ double-sided patterns are terrific, not only for it’s coordinating Best Butterflies Bundle, but for cards year round.

Consider highlighting the pattern of the designer paper with a row of matte dots. I tipped the butterfly to mimic the angle of the designer paper so the matte dots stand out.


I opted to stamp the greeting on the angle of this fold for added interest. The font and size of these words are perfect for this layout!

Glad We’re Friends

The Corgi image in this stamp set sold me! The image is perfect for a myriad of greetings and again, easily paired with all kinds of designer papers.

I used the Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the image and heat embossed the greeting to emphasize the white card base. Cotton ribbon provides a little added texture to this overall simple card.
