Do you ever need to make a card in a hurry? I admit I’ve had to make my share of cards right before going out the door. Today’s card is quick & easy and I bet you can create it in 10 minutes or less!
The key to this card is the Dainty Flowers 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper. (Spend $50 or more to get this exclusive Sale-A-Bration item for FREE!) Just look at these pretty prints!
Can you pick out which patterns I used today? It’s the 5th and 6th across the top.
Here’s a tip for cutting this pattern for card fronts- *Cut the DSP across at 5 1/2″ from the top and 5 1/2″bottom. This leaves a 1″ x 12″ plain strip (from the middle) which you can use to stamp (and die cut) sentiments from. (I like that my sentiment layer has the same textured background color as the DSP.)
Old Olive Cardbase: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and 5 1/4″, scrap for sentiment layer
Dainty Flowers DSP: 7/8″ x 5 1/2″ , 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, 3/8″ x 4 3/8″ (envelope), leftover plain strip to stamp sentiment
Basic White: 3″ x 4″ (inside card)
The sentiment is from the Charming Sentiments Bundle which is perfect for creating cards all year long. The Charming Sentiments Bundle includes the Charming Sentiments Stamp Set and the Sentiment Silhouettes Dies. The open dies coordinate directly with the all-occasion sentiments included in the stamp set.
The finishing touch was adding a few enamel dots and old olive ribbon. Then I created a simple bookmark to coordinate.
Have a great day!

Yesterday I shared a Sweet Strawberry berry basket. Today’s flavor is a blueberry version.
If you missed yesterday’s post all about the Sweet Strawberry basket you can view it HERE. Today I’m focusing on the blueberry basket which holds some delicious blueberry jam.
I used the Berry Blessings Bundle from Sale-A-Bration. This is My Favorite Sale-A-Bration item! You get the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper for FREE with an online order of $100 or more.
I have been creating so many fun projects with this bundle. I love the juicy paper designs and “wishing you the berry best” sentiment I used on the coordinating card.
The gift card is a 3 x 6 piece of Pacific Point scored at 3″. I cut a 2 3/4 Basic White square and stamped the sentiment along the bottom with Pacific Point ink. I added a 2 3/4″ x 2″ piece of the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper and wrapped some navy ribbon (from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack) around and tied a bow. I adhered this layer to the card base. This little gift card can fit in the basket with the jam.
I made a coordinating card for the strawberry version as well.
The dimensions for the strawberry card are the same except I added a 1/2 x 2 3/4 strip of DSP along with a punched flower like the tag on the jar of jam. Are you wondering where I got the twine? It’s actually white and is found in the Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack. Here’s today’s TIP…Use Stampin’ Blends to color the white twine any color you want! I used the Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blend to color it to coordinate. I am thrilled Stampin’ Up! brought the twine back. Now you can make any color you want with some white twine and Stampin’ Blends!
As promised, here’s the details to make the berry basket:
Berry Basket Tutorial
Cardstock Base: 3 x 9 and 2 3/4 x 9 – score each at 3 and 6.
Cardstock rim: 1 x 9 and 1 x 4 1/4 – score each down the middle at 1/2
DSP (Berry Delightful)): cut 2 pieces 3 x 3, cut 2 pieces 2 3/4 x 3
Fold and burnish the cardstock pieces.
Layer the 2 3/4 x 9 piece across the middle of the 3 x 9 piece to form a cross. Adhere with Liquid Glue in the center.
Turn over and adhere designer series paper to each panel. *Make sure the pattern is facing the right direction when the sides are pulled up.
Use a bone folder to curl the strips to break up the fibers. Add liquid glue on each side of the score line.
Start in the back and using the smaller strip fold over the back piece and join the two sides together leaving a little gap between.
Use the long strip and start along the side overlapping the back piece and adhere the front and side pieces to form the basket.
*This basket was made to fit the Stonewall Kitchen jars. You can alter the dimensions for any size jar. The Wild Maine Blueberry Jam from Stonewall Kitchen is the closest to homemade I’ve found!
This gift set is for a friend of mine who loves blueberry jam on her morning bagel! Prior to the pandemic she would come visit often and stay a few days each time. I always had this blueberry jam for her. I really miss her visits and wanted to let her know I’m thinking of her!
Which is your favorite flavor, strawberry or blueberry?
Have a great day! Stay safe! Stay well!
