Ribbon of courage card

At some stage during our life we are likely to know a family member or friend affected by cancer.  I made this card for a friend and instead of using the traditional colours, thought I'd use some of her favourite colours to lift her day.

To make the card I started with a Stampin' Up! Thick Whisper White card base and layered some Fresh Fig card stock and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper on top.

I then created the centre focal piece.  I stamped the sentiment from the Ribbon of Courage stamp set in Fresh Fig ink.  I also stamped the large floral ribbon onto some Whisper White card stock and die cut it using the Support Ribbon framelits.  I layered the Whisper White sentiment piece over some Lemon Lime Twist card stock and adhered it to the centre of the card.  I added the diecut Ribbon along with a diecut heart and leaves also from the Support Ribbon framelits set to complete the card.

If you're interested in making a card with the traditional cancer ribbon colours, here's the chart.

To help raise funds for Cancer Council Australia, I will donate $5 for every Ribbon of Courage stamp set/Support Ribbon framelits bundle purchased from me between now and 31 October 2017.  So who's going to get this bundle and help support the fight against cancer?

Daisy birthday card

When I first bought the Stampin' Up! Daisy Punch and co-ordinating Daisy Delight stamp set, I couldn't stop making cards and gift packaging featuring the punched daisy (love it!) - so I challenged myself to make a card using just stamp set only and here it is.



I started with a Stampin' Up! Night of Navy card base.  I then diecut and adhered the Daffodil Delight edge borders which had been made using the Flourish Thinlits border die.  A layer of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper was then adhered on top.

To create the centre focal piece I first punched some Daffodil Delight card stock with the Banner Triple punch and adhered it to the card.  I stamped the Happy Birthday in Night of Navy ink and covered it with a mask before stamping the flowers/stems. This piece was diecut using the Lots of Labels framelits die set and then adhered to the card.  A Daffodil Delight bow completed the card.

Leafy sympathy card

It's never the right time to make sympathy cards.  Not long ago, I had several friends for whom I needed to make these cards.

Stampin' Up! Thoughts & Prayers sympathy card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts

To create these cards I used a Stampin' Up! Whisper White card base and embossed the front of the card with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I then stamped the floral branch from the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set in both Wisteria Wonder and Pear Pizzazz ink onto Whisper White card stock before adhering it onto Wisteria Wonder card stock and the card front.

The sentiment panel is from the Rose Wonder stamp & Rose Garden Thinlits sets and sentiments are from the same stamp set or the Thoughts & Prayers stamp set.  Some Pear Pizzazz Shimmer Ribbon completes the card.

Born to be loved card

Spring is in the air and a couple of friends are due to have their babies soon.  I made this card in readiness for the arrival of one of the babies.

Stampin' Up! Born to be loved card by Angela Lovel, Angela's PaperArts
Angela's PaperArts - Born to be loved card

This card is a U fold card also known as a Bridge card and folds flat for posting in a C6 sized envelope.  This style of card has a real impact but is simple to make and can be used for any occasion - birthdays, weddings, Christmas etc.

Instructions
To create the U fold card:
  1. Cut a card base 27 x 15 cm and the bridge strip at the bottom of the card 21 x 3.5cm
  2. Score the card base long side at 6cm, 9cm, 18cm and 21cm and fold along the scorelines to create the recessed 'U' shape (6cm & 21cm scorelines = mountain fold, 9cm & 18cm scorelines = valley fold).
  3. Decorate the card to suit the occasion.
  4. Optional: If you want to add an additional layer of embellishments between the front and the back of the centre U part of the card, add an extra support bar across the U space.  This support piece is 12cm x 1.5cm, scored long side at 1.5cm and 10.5cm.  Adhere the two 1.5cm scored end pieces (mountain folded) to the inside of the U for extra support and to hold more embellishments.  I've added some diecut flowers & hearts/stars on window sheet onto this layer.
  5. Adhere the 21 x 3.5cm bridge strip across the front of the card, from edge to edge to connect the two sides.
  6. I've added my message to the new parents on the back of the U part of the card.
  7. To fold flat for posting, press down both sides flat in the same direction (e.g. push the two sides to the right).

For my card I've featured the Stampin' Up! Born to be Loved and Moon Baby stamp sets and the Bundle of Love Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I've used the Stampin' Up! Gold Embossing Powder to keep with the Gold and Very Vanilla colour scheme.  All supplies used can be found at the end of this post.
