How about a Long Card? Video!

This card is 15-3/4″ x 4-1/4″! It’s pretty easy to make!

The CEO of Stampin’ Up! made a long card a few months ago. I loved the idea so I came up with one of my own! There’s a PDF with the measurements- I’ll give you the link to it the end of the post.

Here’s the video of making it! It’s really easy!



Here’s the card I made during the video- all supplies are the same!

In the video, you’ll see the four other Reach for the Stars/Stargazing cards I made that I won’t share. You can purchase the PDF Tutorial that has pictures, measurements, supplies and step by step instructions. I have other PDF Tutorials! Check them out here!

Here’s the link for all my instruction PDFs, this one is the last one shown: “Long Card”:

Shuttle Taking Off in the Daytime!

Growing up in Central Florida on the East Coast, I saw lots of shuttles take off. Some during the day, some at night. Since I’ve made so many cards with Reach for the Stars/Stargazing, I wanted to make one that doesn’t use the planets, stars, etc.

I stamped the shuttle with Memento on Basic White and die cut.

I die cut the flames with the Stargazing DSP. I cut four of them.

The sun is a die from the Hey Chuck dies. I die cut with Basic White, then used a blending brush with Lemon Lolly ink to give it a little color.

The hill was made with the Basic Border dies. Old Olive cardstock.

The grass is from the Playing in the Rain dies. Old Olive.

For the background I had a 5-3/8″ x 4-1/8″ of Basic White. Using Blending Brushes, I used Misty Moonlight and Old Olive inks.

I looked through my stamp sets and wanted to find a perfect sentiment. When I saw “look at you go” in the Fun on Wheels stamp set, I thought that would be perfect. A congratulations card!

Don’t forget- I have PDF Tutorials for different cards- Reach for the Stars in one of them! You can see them here

Side Step Card with Fish!

I had fun making this card! Side Step is kind of “old school” but it can work with so many stamps and dies/punches.

Here’s a video of me making this card (and something new from me!):

And here’s the PDF with measurements:


Ok, what I’m most excited about is that I have made 4 other cards using the Gone Fishing bundle/suite. I won’t share these cards, but you can buy the PDF Tutorial that gives you pictures, measurements, step by step instructions and all products used! I plan to make lots of PDF Tutorials for other products- check back soon!

Skating Chucks!

I wanted to use every chuck on this card. To fit them all, I had to make a slimline card. I’ll have the dimensions and colors used below.

Slimline cards are 8-1/2″ x 7″. The 7″ side is scored at 3-1/2″. For the card front, my size is 8-3/8″ x 3-3/8″. SU doesn’t sell envelopes for these anymore, but these cards do fit in a #10 envelopes- the usual size for regular mail. They are 4-1/8″ x 9-1/2″.

Enough math! 🤣 Let’s talk about the coloring.

The only paper used on this card is Basic White. I colored the card front with Azure Afternoon with a Blending Brush.

For the hills, I used the Basic Borders dies and cut two pieces with Basic White. I colored them with Lemon Lime Twist ink with a Blending Brush. I slightly layered one over the over and adhered at the bottom of the card.

For the chucks, I colored them with Blends. Main parts of them are Lemon Lolly, Balmy Blue, Granny Apple Green and Calypso Coral. For their eyelids, I used Crumb Cake. For their beaks, I used Petal Pink. For the wattles and the one tongue, I used Cajun Craze.

Their skateboards are Balmy, Lemon, Granny, and Calypso. The bottoms and the wheels are Smoky Slate.

Cakes are Balmy, Lemon, Granny, and Calypso.

The sun was die cut with Basic White and I colored with Lemon Lolly with a Blending Brush. I made it very light.

A very bright card- perfect for a kid!
