It’s the Sentiment that Counts – September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Pals’ Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “It’s the Sentiment That Counts”  – showcasing new or favorite sentiments as the focal point of our projects.  

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal and see a great line up of projects!

For my project, I wanted to showcase the “Here’s a Card” stamp set.  It is a sentiment stamp set that has verses for both the front and the inside of cards!  I’m always looking for new and different sentiments, so this stamp set was at the top of my list when the new catalog was released in June.

Stampin-Up-Heres-a-Card-Stitched-Nested-Labels-Come-to-Gather-Designer-Series-Paper-sympathy-card-fancy fold - trifold - shutter card -Debra-Simonis-Stampinup

Stamp Set – Here’s a Card
Ink – Pretty Peacock
Cardstock – Basic Black, Soft Suede, Pretty Peacock. Whisper White, Come to Gather Designer Series Paper
Accessories – Stitched Nested Labels Dies, Leaves Trinkets, 1/4″ Copper Trim

At first glance this looks like an ordinary card.  But when the card is opened up, you can see that it is a Tri-Fold Shutter Card.


Below you can see the inside sentiment for this card.  To view all of the sentiments included in the Here’s a Card stamp set, scroll to the bottom of this post.

When the card is layed out flat, you can see how I positioned the papers to be symmetrical.

Instructions for creating the Tri-Fold Shutter Card can be found here.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-Up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created!

Gather Together & Embedded Embossing

Autumn is almost here, the leaves are starting to turn colors and this card captures the essense of the season.


Stamp Set – Gather Together
Ink – Merry Merlot
Cardstock – Merry Merlot, Pretty Peacock, Cajun Craze, Mint Macaron, Whisper White, Copper Foil
Accessories – Stitched Nested Labels, 1/4″ Copper Trim,  Gathered Leaves Dies, Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Snail Adhesive

Stamping Tip:  Adhere the leaves to the Pretty Peacock cardstock and then emboss with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.  This results in the “embedded embossing technique”.

Did you know that you can stretch the 1/4″ Copper Trim?  It changes the look and gives you additional options to try on your cards/projects.  Now that’s a versatile product…
