INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Shaded Spruce card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Cur your Copper Foil Sheet at 4″ x 4″. Center the square Tropical Thinlit and cut out with your Big Shot.
NOTE: If you want to keep your Copper Foil Sheet shiny and smooth, use this Big Shot Sandwich:
~Big Shot Platform with Thin Die Adapter (Or Multipurpose Platform with all tabs closed)
~Bottom Cutting Plate
~Copper Foil Sheet shiny side up
~Printer Paper touching shiny side of Copper Foil and Thinlit
~Top Cutting Plate
If you want a distressed Copper Foil look, leave out the Printer Paper and use your “well-loved” cutting plates. 3. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of your Copper Foil square. Cut some Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals in half and put behind the leaves in the die cut. 4. Rub the front of your card with your Embossing Buddy to prevent random specks of embossing powder on your project.
~Lay your card base on a piece of clean printer paper.
~Lay your Copper Foil square on your card front to help determine where to stamp your sentiment. I usually pay attention to the distance the bottom of the stamp is from the bottom of the card.
~Remove the Copper Foil square
~Stamp in VersaMark ink
~Dump Copper Embossing Powder over the stamped image area. Dump the Embossing Powder back into the container. Flick the back of your card front a couple of times to remove excess embossing powder.
~Melt the embossing powder with your Heat Tool until all the embossing powder is melted and shiny. 5. Remove the backing from all the Stampin’ Dimensionals and attach your Copper Foil square to your card front.
Your Card is finished.

Choose a Scallop Circle Framlit larger than your Whisper White circle and cut it from Night of Navy cardstock. Layer them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. 4. Lay your layered circles on your embossed card front. Decide where you want to tie your bow. Wrap the ribbon around your card front and tie the bow where you want it. Watch this Video on attaching ribbon if you need help. 5. Attach your layered circles to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Your Card is finished. 6. Optional Envelope. Emboss the envelope flap with the Striped Scallops embossing folder. Watch this Video for instructions.

Run through your Big Shot with the Petal Burst embossing folder. Glue to your card base. 3. Stamp all three pandas on Whisper White cardstock leaving plenty of room to punch them out with the Starburst Punch.

My guys don’t seem to mind the Copper Trim as it looks borwnish and metallic.
~Attach the Oval sentiment to the Snowflake with the Stampin’ Dimensionals. Now put Glue Dots on the back of the Snowflak behind the Oval die cut. Attach to card front. Trim ribbon ends if necessary.

This is a quick Birthday Card and uses the NEW Happy Birthday Thinlit and your choice of patterned paper. The one I used is retired-sorry. But it is perfect for my daughter whose birthday is coming up soon.

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Flirty Flamingo card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. 2. Choose the two Framelits you will use as your cut out and frame. 3. Cut your Card front pieces:
~Whisper White at 4″ x 5-1/4″.
~Patterned Paper at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Cut out the window using the smaller Framelit.
~Window Sheet at 3-3/4″ x 5″
~Flirty Flamingo Window Frame: Put both Framelits on the card stock on your Big Shot Platform. Make sure the card stock showing between them is even. Cut.
~Stamp your Ice Cream with Flirty Flamingo ink on Whisper White card stock with the solid Ice Cream stamps. Stamp the Ice Cream layers with Watermelon Wonder ink on the solid Ice Cream piece. Cut out with the coordinating Ice Cream Framelit.
~Cut out both the solid and the detailed Thinlit Ice Cream cone pieces from Crumb Cake card stock. Attach together with Tombow Glue and sponge wedge on your Silicone Craft Sheet. Glue the Ice Cream to the top.
~Stamp Happiest Birthday or other words in Watermelon Wonder ink on a Whisper White card stock strip. Punch the end with the Banner Triple Punch. 4. Assemble Card Front.
~Glue the Flirty Flamingo Frame around the Window on your patterned paper using Tombow Glue because it has a little wiggle room so you can use your fingers in the window hole to line up both pieces.
~Glue the Window Sheet on the back of the card front. You just need glue around the edges of the Window Sheet.
~Attach the Happiest Birthday Banner with the adhesive of your choice.
~Attach the Ice Cream Cone with half Stampin’ Dimensionals 5. Make the Shaker Card.
~Put your Foam Adhesive strips on the back of your card front within about 1/4″ from the window cut-out making sure there are no small gaps for your Sprinkles to escape through. Rub the part of the Foam Adhesive Strip that is in the center where the sprinkles will be with your Embossing Buddy to remove all the sticky from the sides. This will help prevent your Sprinkles from sticking to the Foam. If you look closely, you can see I forgot this step.
~Also put some Foam Adhesive Strips about 1/4″ from the edge of the back side of the card front.
~Optional: Line up the Whisper White 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece with the completed card front to get an idea of where to place some of the Sprinkles with Glue Dots. Attach a few Sprinkles on the Whisper White piece with Glue Dots. Cut away the excess Glue Dot that sticks out beyone the Sprinkle if you want a smaller glob of Sprinkles to collect on the Glue Dot. I just left the Glue Dot as is of all but one of the added Sprinkles.
~Put the desired amount of Sprinkles on the back of the card front inside the Foam Window. Match up the sides of the Whisper White piece and the card front and attach.
~Attach your Shaker card front to your card base. 6. Yippee! You are finished!

At our Upline Meeting at Sharon’s House she had us do a basic single layer card (Stamping 101), then add some elements with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the card some Pop (Stamping 102). The purpose of this was to help us help teach beginning stampers to design their own cards – which are usually stamped on the card base, then step it up with a few simple additions. It was a fun experience. Try it for yourself and have some fun! It took us about 1-1/2 hours to make the two versions. We did just use our Stamping 101 card and added to it.
We started out with a NEW Stamp set in front of us. I even got to assemble it for her since it was Wood Mount. She had all the NEW In Color ink pads, card stock, and the NEW Ruched Ribbon. There was also Whisper White card stock, the NEW Duet Banners Punch, and the NEW Layered Squares Framelits.
STAMPING 101 CARD INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Whisper White card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. Watch this Video if you need help making a card base. 2. Lay your card base in the landscape position – with the fold at the top. 3. Stamp your words in the center of the frame in Emerald Envy ink. Use your Stamp-a-ma-jig if you want. Watch this Video to learn how to use your Stamp-a-ma-jig. 4. Choose the ink stamps and the ink color for each stamp. Stamp each stamp diagonally in the same direction in at least two places. Fill in any large spaces with the smaller stamps. Yes, one stamp will look like it is going backwards. No one will notice unless you tell them. Remember to stamp straight down and straight up to avoid getting “Ring around the Rubber”. 5. Your basic Stamping 101 card is finished!
STAMPING 102 CARD INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Follow all the steps for the Stamping 101 card. You do NOT need to stamp the words in the center as you will be covering them up. 2. Stamp the following on a scrap of Whisper White card stock.
~Stamp the Painter’s Easel two times in Dapper Denim ink.
~Stamp the words in Emerald Envy inside one of the Frames of a Painter’s Easel.
~Stamp “A Little Expression of Love” In Emerald Envy ink. 3. Use your Paper Snips to cut out around one of your stamped Painter’s Easels. Only the two feet and the top will be showing so cut those pieces extra well and the frame will be covered up. Attach to the center of your card with either SNAIL, Fast Fuse, or Tombow Glue. 4. Choose the Layered Square Framelit you like best to cut the Frame out of the other stamped Painter’s Easel. I chose a Scallop one that was slightly larger than the Frame. Cut it out with your Big Shot. Sponge around the Scallop edges with a Stamping Sponge wedge and Dapper Denim ink. Attach over the Frame of your Painter’s Easel which is on your card front. 5. Punch out the “A Little Expression…” with the Duet Banner Punch. Put your card stock in the punch so you can see the stamped words through the Banner holes in the bottom of the punch. Line up the words so they are in the position you like and punch. Sponge some Emerald Envy ink around the edges of the punched banner. Put some Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of your punched banner. Attach it to the upper left corner of your card front. 6. Tie a bow with the Ruched Ribbon. If you have trouble tying a bow, just tie a knot with about 1-1/2″ on one end and then cut off the other end to match. Attach to your Painter’s Easel on the upper right corner with Glue Dots. 7. A few extra steps can take your card from cute and nice to impressive.
Have fun making a Stamping 101 Card and then adding some layers to it for your Stamping 102 card!

INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Emerald Green card base at 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Score and fold at 4-1/4″. Watch this Video if you want more instructions on making a card base. 2. Cut your Whisper White card stock at 4″ x 5-1/4″. Get your embossing folder. Find the smooth side where the parts to be embossed are lower than the flat part. Use your Emerald Envy ink pad to ink up this side of your embossing folder. Don’t worry about keeping the center oval clean as it will be covered up. Put your Whisper White card stock on the UNINKED side of the embossing folder and get it in the position you want – with the Oval in the center. Close your embossing folder and run through your Big Shot. Set aside to dry. Clean your embossing folder with running water from your sink. 3. Stamp “Hooray” and “Happy Birthday” in Emerald Envy ink on Whisper White card stock. Punch out the Hooray with a 2″ Circle Punch. Cut out the Happy Birthday with the Banner Framelit from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits set. Put Stampin’ Dimensionals on the back of both pieces. 4. Choose the Oval Framelit that fits best inside the Oval on the embossing folder and cut it out of Emerald Envy card stock. 5. Now it is time to put everything together and turn it into a card.
~Use Tombow Glue to attach your embossed card stock to your card base. Center it so the card base shows equally around your embossed piece.
~Add your cut out Oval over the Oval space on your embossed piece. I used Tombow Glue.
~Decide the position of your “Hooray” and “Happy Birthday”. Remove the Stampin’ Dimensional backs and attach. 6. If you are like me and did not leave enough room on both sides of your Happy Birthday so it could be in the center when you cut it out, then you can punch out a few Stars from the Confetti Stars Punch and glue them to your Happy Birthday Banner. 😉

NOTE: You can change the card stock colors, patterned paper, and ink colors to make each card your own! You can also color your Pop-Ups or cut outs with markers.
INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Cut your Mint Macaron card base
~No Pop-Up: 5-1/2” x 8-1/2”. Score and fold at 4-1/4”.
~With Pop-Up: 4-1/4” x 11” and fold and score at 5-1/2”. 1a. Complete Pop-Up Instructions as shown in the Video above before working on card front. Stamp the inside now if desired. 2. Cut your patterned paper at 4” x 5-1/4”. Attach to front of card base. 3. Flat Pop-Up Thinlit cutting instructions. Just cut out of a piece of card stock with no fold line. Cut at the end of the letters and the cake plate.
Cut out your Happy Birthday from a piece of Bermuda Bay card stock using the Precision Base Plate and a FLAT Cutting Plate. Since this is NOT a Pop-Up you don’t have to pay attention to the arrows on the Thinlit. Separate the card stock from the Thinlit using the Big Shot Die Brush. Attach to card front with Fine Tip Glue Pen.
