Handmade Card Making & Paper Crafting Trends - Global Stampin' Video Hop July 2021 - Stampin' Up!

Today is another tutorial for the Global Stampin’ Video Hop on YouTube. Each month on the fourth Friday other Stampin’ Up Demonstrators from around the world come together and share their projects based on a monthly theme. July’s Theme is Card Making Trends.


Did you know that many paper crafting trends come from home d├ęcor or fashion trends? It just takes a couple years to move from one area to another. So, if you want to be a trend setter, take a look at what is trending in other areas and most likely it will also show up in paper crafting. When thinking about my favorite things that are trending I gravitated to four different things. 1- blending, 2- warm color palette, 3- texture, & 4- house plants (love them!). I have used all 4 trends on the card I am sharing with you today. I hope this card inspires you to create something fun with one or more of your favorite trends.


Make sure to check out what everyone makes for this monthly Video Hop. You can start with my video, I have linked it below. You can find the next video at the top of the video’s description on YouTube. Have fun!

1- On 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Basic White Cardstock create an angled blended background using a blending brush and Cinnamon Cider & Cajun Craze. Blend so them meet together from the bottom left corner to the top right corner.


2- Add one Paper Lattice in the center and spread Shimmery White Embossing Paste with a Palette Knife. Spread over as much of the lattice as you want, then remove the lattice as soon as you finish so it doesn’t stick. Then clean the palette knife with soap and water. Let dry.


3- Once the embossing paste has dried trim ¼” from each side of the cardstock. Then stamp enough plants and planters to create three house plants. One large, medium, & small. Add them to the bottom right corner. Here are the combinations I used:






Large: Large Pot – Smoky Slate, Large Plant in Garden Green layered behind a Pear Pizzazz plant. Add with glue dots.

Medium: Large Pot – Cajun Craze, “V” Shape Plant in Evening Evergreen in front of the same plant in Garden Green cut in half and added at different angles. Add with dimensionals.

Small: Small Pot – Cinnamon Cider, Snake Plate – Soft Succulent Add with dimensionals.


4- Wrap 24” of White Bakers Twine around the bottom twice and tie a bow in front of the Cajun Craze pot.


5- Stamp your greeting in Evening Evergreen. Cut out with a label die from the Ornate Labels. Use the small stylus from the Take Your Pick Tool and emboss the edges of the label. Add over the bow and below the House Plants with dimensionals.


6- Add your choice of pattern from the Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP to the front of the cardbase. Then add the main piece to the center. Add some Champagne Color Elegant Faceted Gems.

All Done!

Here are the dimensions and pieces you will need to create these cards:

From the Kit:

Camper Cardbase

Large Tree Die Cut

Small Tree Label

Extra Cardstock:

Basic White Cardstock – Cardbase 5 ½” x 9 ¼”

White Cardstock for stamping or you can use the white back panel from the cardbase.

Window Sheet – ¾” x 3 ½” | ¾” x 2 ¼”



Here is a list of the supplies I used to make the cards:

Basic White Cardstock 159276 $9.75

Window Sheets 142314 $5.00

Garden Green Ink Pad 147089 $7.50

Granny Apple Green Ink Pad 147095 $7.50

Paper Trimmer 152392 $25.00

Simply Shammy 147042 $8.00

Stampin’ Seal Adhesive 152813 $8.00

Multipurpose Liquid Glue 110755 $4.00

Tear & Tape Adhesive 138995 $7.00

Dimensionals 104430 $4.00

Bone Folder 102300 $7.00

Stampin' Pierce Mat 126199 $5.00

Take Your Pick Tool 144107 $10.00


1- Score 5 times in ½” intervals on each side of the 5 ½” x 9 ¼” cardbase. Start on ½”, then 1”, 1 ½”, 2”, & 2 ½”. Then flip the cardbase and repeat. You should also have a black space about 4 ¼” wide. Accordion Fold each section starting with #5 folding towards the front of the card, repeat on other side. 

See template.


Print Template Here:

2- Remove the front Camper section of the cardbase at 4 ¼”. Remove the Plant pattern section of the cardbase along the fold line. Tip: Use a sharp blade and start your cut in the middle of the cardstock. Add the Plant pattern to the 4 ¼” blank section of the Shadow Box Cardbase.


3- Remove the Camper from the cardbase. I did cut around the tire to make a full circle and colored in the green area with a Black Watercolor Pencil. This is a personal preference. Attach it to the right side of the 3 ½” Window Sheet strip with glue dots.


4- Stamp the Line Detail image over the Large Tree Die cut in Garden Green Ink. Remove the Small Tree from the Label and stamp the Detail image on top in Garden Green Ink as well. Connect the two trees together with the smaller on the left and centered with the large tree. Add these to the left side of the 2 ¼” Window Sheet strip with glue dots.


5- Temporally place the Window Frame section over the Plant section and mark where you want the Camper and Trees to be placed in sections #2 (see template). I placed the Camper just slightly higher than the bottom of the window and the Trees at the top of the window. Remove the Window Frame section.


6- Add Tear & Tape Adhesive to all of section #2. Attach the Window Strips where you indicated. Add another piece of Tear & Tape over the Window Strip and close section #3 over #2. Repeat of the other side.


7- Add the Window Frame section to the front of the cardbase by adding Tear & Tape to section #5. Make sure it is on the top of the section when the sides are all folded together. Start with top right corner and slowly match the edge all the way down to the bottom right corner. Then try to fold both sides down and as you press the card closed attach the other side at the same time. This is a little tricky, but ensures that the card will fold flat. See video below for more details.


8- Add more trees and bushes to the front of the card. Stamp the Large Tree image in Garden Green and add the Detail in Garden Green as well. Fussy cut out. Add to the left of the cardbase and trim any overhang.


9- To create a Bush - Place the Small Scatter Lines image with the flat side out so your stamping a solid image. Ink in Garden Green and stamp two times to get two images, one dark & one light. Clean and repeat with Granny Apple Green ink. Clean and flip the stamp over and add the Scatter Lines inside each “bush” with full strength matching ink. Fussy Cut Out. Add these to the right of the tree, make sure one is covering the “dip” left from the tire.


10- Cut the rectangle from the Small Tree Label at ½” and stamp the greeting in Garden Green Ink. Add a faux bow with 8” of Black Twine to the back and adhere to the center of the card with dimensionals.

All Done!

From the Kit:

½ Banner Label – 2nd piece from alternative card #1

Sequins

Extra Cardstock:

Stampin’ Seal Adhesive 152813 $8.00

Bone Folder 102300 $7.00

Stampin' Pierce Mat 126199 $5.00

Take Your Pick Tool 144107 $10.00


1- Remove the landscape inside flap from the cardbase. Cut along the folded line. TIP – use a sharp blade and start in the center of the cardstock, then cut to each edge.


2- Adhere Foam Adhesive Strips to the left & right edges on the back of the circle side of the cardbase. Make sure they are close to the edge. Leave a small gap about ½” from the top. Add a small piece at the bottom to keep the inside panel from falling out.


3- Measure the width of the circle, it should be about 3 ¾”. On the landscape panel remove about ¼” from each side stopping ½” from the bottom, you are creating an upside-down T shape. Remove the trimmed strip with a pair of Paper Snips. The width at the top of this panel should be 3 ¾” and should cover the whole circle.

SIMPLIFY – To make this easier; measure the space between the Foam Strips, then cut the whole landscape panel to slide in and out of this space with no stopper. This would mean this panel could be fully removed. Skip step 4 & 5


4- Measure the widest space between your Foam Strips. Mine was 3 7/8”. This is the size you need to trim the bottom ½” area to. Make sure to remove the same amount from both sides to keep it even. I removed 1/16” from each side, leaving about 1/16” larger on each side than the top. This is the stopper and will keep the panel from coming out of the card.


5- Place the inside panel in between the Foam Strips. At the top of the cardstock where the ½” gap is between the top edge and Foam Strips, add a small piece of Foam Strip horizontally making sure the edge of the Strip touches the side of the inside panel. Repeat on the other side. The larger part of the panel at the bottom will catch on these when pulled, to create the stopper to keep the panel inside the card.

6- Make sure the panel moves easily up and down within the Foam Strips. If not make any necessary changes.


7- With the landscape panel in place between the Foam Strips. Remove the paper backing on the Foam Strips and close the back panel over the top. If you want you can cut along the fold before or after folding it closed.


8- Stamp a tree in Garden Green in on to scrap paper, then on the extra white cardstock from the circle cut out. Then stamp the details in Garden Green ink. Fussy cut out. Add this to the front of the card to the right of the larger tree and below the circle opening with adhesive only on the bottom of the tree.


9- Stamp the greeting on the 2nd half of the Banner Die Cut in Garden Green ink. Trim the flat side to match the angled side. Add some adhesive to the left side and attach a faux box with 8” of Black Twine. Add below the tree with dimensionals.


10- Punch a decorative label punch (Label Me Fancy Punch) from Basic White Cardstock. Remove ½” from each side. Attach them to the top of the inside panel, one of the front & back. Cut or draw a small arrow (Give It A Whirl Dies, Black Cardstock, Adhesive Sheets) on to the center of the tab.


11- Stamp a greeting or write your message on the white inside area of the circle when the panel is pull up. Add some rhinestones around the card.

All Done!
