Happy World Cardmaking Day 2017 :)

What will you be doing today?


What will you be doing to celebrate World Card Making Day 2017.  I have travelled to the adorable village of Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Village Paper & Ink. An adorable shop owned and run by the equally adorable Gina K..  She is hosting The Coloring Challenge Roadtrip so I get the added fun of spending the day with the wonderful Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker blog.  I'm so excited and this post will be short because I gotta run :)  Let me know if you have any plans?  I would love to hear :)

Have a great weekend :)

Fall Tea Cup Pop Up Card Featuring Hero Arts Infinity Dies

I love Hero Arts, how about you? :)

 I had so much fun creating this card this week.  It started with Hero Arts Infinity Dies and my love of anything to do with Tea and ended with my quest to make a stand up card that someone would want to display and not be so ready to throw away.   There is a video below showing how I created this pop up card, a diagram below that for what I like to call my paper spring, and below that handy links to all of the products I used to make this cutie :) 

 

This weekend I'm heading to Greendale, Wisconsin to visit Gina and her lovely shop.  One of my happy places.  See you soon Gina :)  Is everyone getting ready for the holidays....I'm starting to itch to make Christmas cards.  I'm guessing I will start at Village Paper and Ink this weekend.

YouTube Tutorial

Check out this quick little video to help you recreate it :)  I would love to see what this card inspires you to make.  If you happen to post them on Instagram tag #perkypennypapers so I will have a heads up to check it out :)  Bare with me in the video it was a little difficult to describe :/





I am attempting to create videos that are short and sweet and to the point.  We are all busy and my intention is for you to get as much information and ideas for a project in as short a period of time as possible.  This weeks video is a double feature:)  Let me know what you think in the comments below and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel.  It is much appreciated :)

Here is a diagram of my paper spring.  I hope they are as fun for you as they are for me.  Please comment if you have any questions and I will do my best to help you :)

Baby Cards w/ Sunny Studios Quilted Hexagons Stamps and Distress Oxide Inks

Welcome it's great to see you :)

I am not often in the need of baby cards so this weeks card is particularly excited for several reasons. First I am waiting for the birth of a new little niece or nephew (and I am guessing the last one).  I will be traveling to Minnesota for the birth....Yay!


On the way I will be stopping in Greendale, WI to visit Gina K. and Kathy Racoosin and participate in The Coloring Challenge Road Trip.  So much fun :)  Because I will be traveling I took the opportunity to make these adorable baby cards so that I would have them on hand for the special arrival.


I had this super cool set that came out in July from Sunny Studio Stamps called Quilted Hexagons.

My grandma was a huge quilter and I have many friends who enjoy it as well.  But me, I'm a stamper, so this set is perfect.  The idea of actually quilting raises my anxiety about 3000% but stamps are my happy place.  This particular set has so many elements to create anything from and old fashioned traditional quilt to a super funky modern design and everything in between.  I decided to use it to create the quilt for my little bassinet cards.  A match made in stamping heaven :)

My blog post today also happens to coincide with Sunny Studio Stamps release of their new Fall Stamps, their 2nd birthday and a SALE!!!!!!  Which means you can get these wonderful stamps at a discount and as a special bonus they are also offering a pre-sale on the new release with the
discount :)  I bet you can guess what I will be doing after I am done with this blog post :)  To check out the blog hop and get the sale code click here.
