Hello, Friends!  This Stamperia Casa Granada Card Kit Reveal is the next best thing to a summer kitchen in Spain!  Oh, the rich colors, terra cotta tiles and gorgeous vintage images in this beautiful paper collection!  They captured my imagination, and the minute I saw them, I knew this had to be our Button Farm Club Summer Card Kit!

Stamperia Casa Granada Loaded Pocket Cards by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Pomegranates, crockery bowls, vibrant poppies and an adorable little snail inspired these loaded pocket cards.

Each pocket has a little post card, tags and the cutest little accordion tag folio!  It’s a gift all on its own, but there’s room to tuck in a gift card or a tea bag and honey stick if you are so inclined.

This is one of the images that made me swoon!  You’ll have to watch the video to see the surprise on the inside!

And we  have not one, but TWO slimline shaker card folios in this kit.  These are perfect for gift-giving, as the inside is not your ordinary card.

There’s a fun kinetic waterfall feature, a little hidden side pocket, and a tag folio pocket, too.  You’ll even find room for a photo or two on the inside.

Old World Charm

This cutaway card is oozing with Old World charm.  Cracked tiles, chippy crockery and an old tea pot filled with posies lends lots of charm.

And you’ll find lots of kinetic surprises inside these pretty cards, too.

Like pop-up features?  We got that!

Belly Bands?  And fancy folds?  Check!

These double gatefold cards even have a little bookmark action on the inside.

Flip Folio

In addition to the 9 cards in this kit, we also managed to squeeze in a mighty sweet little flip folio!

Here’s a peek at the cover without that fabulous dimensional belly band.

And I promise you…there are some very fun features tucked inside this wonderful design!

Slimline Butterfly Garden Birthday Cake

Asuka Time to Celebrate Butterfly Birthday Cake Slimline Card Reneabouquets by Kathy Clement Photo 01

Slimline Butterfly Garden Birthday Cake for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Friends!  Today’s Slimline Butterfly Garden Birthday Cake card kicks off Birthday Season in the Clement household!  Between June-September, we celebrate 10 birthdays!  All of them call for cards, of course.  But they also call for cake!  So I’ve featured this pretty Butterfly Garden Cake.  The whole thing is tied together with a bodacious Island Blue Diamond Satin  Bow from the Really Reasonable Ribbon  June Ribbon Club Assortment.

Your card will always take the cake if you follow some simple designer tips & tricks:

  • First, anchor your card base with a ribbon border.  Before you add your card front to the card base, wrap it with 1/2″ Scor-Tape and a length of Island Blue Satin Ribbon.
  • Next, tie a bodacious double loop bow with a little help from the Bow-it-All Tool.
  • Now, top that bow with an Iridescent string bow to add a bit of birthday sparkle.
  • Then tuck a few birthday candles behind the bow, just for fun.
  • Finally, glue a white chrysanthemum to the top of the bow.
Sweet Details

You might think that growing a year older is the best reason to have a birthday.  But I happen to think that cake is the better excuse!  Here’s how I dressed up this sweet birthday cake.

  • First, heat emboss a Reneabouquets Small Butterflies and Roses Chip with Opaque White Embossing Powder.
  • Next, fussy cut the birthday cake from a 3×4 card.  Back it with foam tape and adhere between the bow and the chipboard.
  • Now, cluster up some roses and mulberry flowers around the base of the cake plate.
  • Then scatter some beautiful beads around the flower cluster.
  • Finally, adorn the cake and the card with lots of tiny butterflies! (linked below)
A Peek Inside

Add a sweet pocket and gift card wallet inside the card.  This paper is sooo pretty, I didn’t want to cover it up, so I kept the inside pretty simple.

The gift card wallet is decorated on the inside and has a stripey pocket for a gift card or other small treat.

Do you have a birthday season in your family?  Getting this card made leaves me with just 9 more to go!  Better get busy!

Rustic Sunflower Shaker Card

Heartfelt Creations Rustic Sunflower Shaker Card Elegant Pocket Accents by Kathy Clement PHoto 01

Sunflowers are blooming everywhere in North Carolina, so I felt inspired to dig out my Rustic Sunflower goodies to make this cheery shaker card.

  • First, trim a 6×6 card front to measure 5 1/2″ square. Stitch around the yellow border on the 6×6 card front.
  • Now, die cut the center image from a 6×6 card front in the Rustic Sunflower Paper Pad.  This is easy to do if you use the largest Basic Circles Die. Adhere the image to a 5 3/4″ panel of bright yellow cardstock so that it lines up with the opening in the frame.
  • Next, adhere clear cardstock to the back side to create the shaker window and place 3 layers of foam tape around the edges.
  • Place your shaker elements in the center of the die cut circle image. Remove the liner from the foam tape.  Now carefully center the frame over the image and press in place.
  • Use the Rustic Sunflower dies to cut flowers from the paper pad.  Brush with Wild Honey Distress Ink, spritz lightly with water and run through the shaping mold.
  • Now layer flowers together.  Fill the centers with hot glue and glass beads.
  • Die cut the Elegant Pocket Accent from cream cardstock,  Then die cut just the frame from turquoise paper.  Layer the accent piece over the turquoise base and adhere on the top of the card.
  • Arrange flowers, tags, and embellishments as seen in the photo.
A Peek Inside

I like to turn my cards into gifts by adding a pocket and some sweet tuck ins.

Here’s a little tea/gift card wallet and bookmark/tag to sweeten up the inside of this card.

There’s room to write a note inside, too.  Don’t forget to tuck in a honey stick to sweeten the tea!

July Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial

Photoplay Year with My Gnomies July Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

July Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial with Photoplay Year with My Gnomies Collection

Hello, Friends!  Wowsers…it’s already time to share our July Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial!  How can we be half way through 2022?  This month’s folio is all about the red, white and blue.  We’ve got cook out gnomes, stars, stripes, rosettes and all the festive elements that go along with Independence Day celebrations. If you’re new to this monthly series on the blog, you can get caught up on the previous 6 months HERE.

July Gnome of the Month: How to Make a Star Shaker Embellishment

July Gnome of the Month Folio Tutorial by Kathy Clement Photoplay Year with My Gnomies

What could be more perfect than a star shaped shaker element on a 4th of July folio?  If you have a basic set of nested star dies, you can make your own by following these simple steps.

  • First, die cut the largest star from a piece of heavy weight cardstock.  (I used Navy to go with the color palette of my project.)
  • Next, select the patterned paper you wish to use as the frame of your star.
  • Now place a small piece of easy release tape (like painter’s tape) on the edge of the largest star die to secure it in place on the patterned paper.
  • Then center the next smallest star die inside the large one and secure with tape.
  • Run the die through your die cutting machine using the sandwich that your machine recommends.
  • Now you will have a large frame and a smaller star.  Adhere the small star in the center of the Navy cardstock star.  This is the backer for your shaker element.
  • Next, die cut clear cardstock (acetate) with the largest star die and adhere to the back of the frame. This is the frame or the front of your shaker element.
  • Then place 3 rows of 1/8″ foam strips on the back of the star frame.
  • Now fill the center of the shaker back with your shaker elements.
  • Finally, press the frame over the shaker back.

Here is a side view of the shaker frame.  I colored the sides of my foam tape with a red sharpie pen so that it would blend in better.

A Peek Inside

The inside of this adorable folio follows the same simple layout as the preceding months. Keeping the design the same each month saves time, which is always a good thing!

A cute tag pocket is hidden behind the front flap.  The large center pocket gives you plenty of room to add journaling cards, tags and photos.

I really like the images this month…especially the watermelon and ice cream treats!  That’s a a great way to cool off during the summer heat wave so many of us are experiencing.
