Tri-fold Card for a Special Someone

This week, a special person celebrated their birthday, my mom.  I wanted to come up with something fun and, for anyone that knows my mom, it HAD to be purple.  I buzzed around Pinterest and came across some lovely ideas.  By the way, I LOVE Pinterest!

I found several Tri-fold cards that were very interesting and it was a style I had never made before so I decided to give it a go. 


Here is what you need to recreate this card:

Stamp Set:  Mixed Bunch (Wood Mount 125535, Clear Mount 125537)
Paper:  Wisteria Wonder 12 x 12 (124328), Whisper White (100730)
Ink:  Wisteria Wonder (126985), Island Indigo (126986), Lucky Limeade (126984), Calypso Coral (126983)
Tools:  Blossom Punch (125603), 1" Circle Punch (119868), 3/4" Circle Punch (119873), Bird Builder Punch (117191)
Embellishments and such:  Stampin' Dimensionals (104430), 2-Way Glue Pen (100425)

Although the card may look quite complicated, it came together quite quickly.  I hope you enjoyed today's Sunday Sampler!

Simple Handmade Card with "Oh, Hello"

I am still learning this Blogger thing and haven't quite perfected the "scheduled publish" part.  I had this ready to go while I was out of town for the weekend and was saddened to realize that I have not mastered this technique!  I hope that since this is only my third post as a blogger that you will forgive me :)


As a gift for my birthday last week, my wonderful husband sent me on a little crafty trip to the Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference in Orlando. Being fairly new to Stampin' Up! I didn't know what to expect, I just hoped that I came home with new ideas. Boy did I ever!

My head has been spinning with projects galore and I look forward to taking those ideas from my head, the projects that I photographed and the 50 card swap samples that I came home with, and creating fun new cards to share with you!

One perk of going to a Stampin' Up! event is that they are very generous with gifts! Our first gift, given when we picked up our registration packet, was a stamp set out of the new Spring Catalog called "Oh, Hello". I wanted some simple, clean Thank You cards and this is what I came up with:

Here is what you need to recreate this simple card:

Stamp Set:  Oh, Hello (Wood Mount 130730, Clear Mount 130733)
Paper:  Midnight Muse (126843), Whisper White (100730)
Ink:  Cherry Cobbler (126966), Midnight Muse (126860), Old Olive (126953), Summer Starfruit (126991) 
Tools:  1 1/4 Inch Square Punch (119865)
Embellishments and such:  Cherry Cobbler Bakers Twine (123125), Stampin' Dimensionals (104430), Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue (110755)

For those of you that know me well, you know that I love to make things.  More than making just anything, I have come to truly enjoy making greeting cards and other paper craft items. Being that this is the very first entry in the Her Crafty Intentions blog, I thought I would share with you some of my favorite projects from 2012:

Because of this love for paper crafting, I recently became reintroduced to Stampin’ Up!  If you haven’t heard of them or used their products before, it is truly high quality.  My very favorite part, everything MATCHES and COORDINATES!  It just makes life easier.  I am now a Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrator and most of my projects are made with Stampin’ Up! card stock, ink, stamps, die-cuts, paper punches and embellishments.

I hope you enjoyed this quick flashback to 2012.  Please leave a comment!
