Diagonal Stripes on a card!

I have created several cards using 1/2″ scraps before but never like the card shown today. A video was even created to show the steps to create your own card. I definitely want to make another one with a different color palette.  Let’s look at the diagonal stripes on a card!


Diagonal Stripes on a card!


The Details:

Grab your trimmer!

  • cut card base 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
  • score at 4 1/4″
  • cut layering piece 4″ x 5 1/4″
  • cut Very Vanilla 3 3/4″ x 5″
  • make several 1/2″ strips of card stock to create diagonal stripe on card
  • cut a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper and then cut it on a diagonal to make two triangles
  • using the Stitched Labels Dies, die cut your brackets for the sentiment
  • taking the triangle, place it on your trimmer (all this is available on video) then line up the scrap strip on a diagonal and cut
  • watch the video for placement
  • once the strips are complete, add ribbon
  • stamp sentiment as shown


The sentiment!

I used two of the sentiments to create my focal point. I stamped in Cherry Cobbler and then used Crumb Cake to stamp along the edges.

A video!

I will be the first to admit it, I am rusty! However, I am committed to doing a project every Sunday so I can get better and share something with you! Watch today’s video to create your own card!

The Designer Series Paper Sale!

Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Paper is a favorite item of mine. The artists create some amazing patterns and the colors are to die for! I love when they run a paper sale because I stock up! What about a paper split? Even better priced when the items are 15% off. The paper split is a great way to have a sample of all the paper and it you decided you like a certain packet, you can take advantage of the sale!

The price for the paper split is $40!  Please contact me if you are interested as I am placing an order tomorrow to get started!  I love doing paper splits.



Lots to do!

Yes, there is always something to be done.  I have so many ideas in my head to create but sometimes I need inspiration and motivation! Do you ever have that issue?  What do you want to create? Is there a particular stamp set that you want to see samples created with? Let me know, I love a challenge!

Happy Stampin’
