Quite Curvy Cards with Artistry Blooms


Welcome to the STAMPING INKspirations BLOG HOP for January 2021.  This month we are focusing on celebrating ANYTHING NEW! So first and foremost, I want to thank Angie McKenzie for organizing us all and hosting this BLOG HOP!  We have a large group of paper crafters who really enjoy blog hopping together. I applaud the group as a whole for our creativity that is shared.  But also a special thank you for Angie who keeps us all together.

So our theme is ANYTHING NEW!  Which opens up the opportunity to craft any project we are inspired to create.  NEW can be different for all of us… it might be that we are celebrating the NEW YEAR.  Or maybe we have a new stamp set or stamping technique we want to experiment with and create a project to share with all of you. 

Today, I have a project that features the NEW Quite Curvy Bundle from the Spring Mini Catalog from Stampin’ Up!  I also adjusted my card design to use my patterned paper to its fullest potential and reduce scraps.  I did film a Stampin’ Show & Tell video to share, so enjoy the demonstration.



My project could easily be CASED, that means Copy And Selectively Edit, with the same products or other similar ones.  I share the full tutorial with you down below in the post, so if you need the materials & measures they are easily found.  You can make your very own projects following this idea, all you need is:

  • Cardstock

  • Patterned paper

  • Paper cutting die to create an edged design

  • Sentiment stamp

  • Embellishments

Now that you have visited with me, and I hope my project may have inspired you, it’s time to send you along to the next blog with JoAnn Pollock .  Please leave me and the other paper crafters comments on our posts.  We just love to know what you think of our ideas.

Misc - 



  • Card Base 11 x 4 [scored at 5 ½]
  • Patterned Paper 4 x 4
  • Die Cut Front 4 x 3   [die cut to remain at least 4 x 2 ¼ inches]


Die Cut Layer

  • Using the curved edge die, trim the 4 x 3 cardstock in the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine.  Be sure to have the finished cut layer at least 2 ¼ inches long.

Stamp your Greeting

  • Stamp your greeting with Versamark ink.

  • Then dust with Heat & Emboss powder.

  • Use your Heat Tool to set the powder.

  • If you don’t want to heat emboss,  you can simple stamp your greeting with coordinating ink of your choice.

Add the Patterned Paper

  • With adhesive of your choice, add the patterned paper section 4 x 4 to the card front.

  • Line up the bottom and side edges.

  • Since the card base is 4 inches across, it should cover it completely.

Add the Ribbon Embellishment

  • Measure and Cut a section of ribbon about 6 inches in length.

  • Add adhesive to the back of the die-cut cardstock.

  • Wrap & tack the ends of the ribbon around the front of the cardstock and adhere to the back.

  • Now add Dimensionals to the back of the layer for mounting.

  • Now add this layer to the card front.

  • For a bow, cut another section of ribbon about 5 inches in length.

  • Tuck it under the ribbon band and tie a simple knot bow.

  • Trim the ends by bringing them together and trimming at the same time.
