5 Minute Monday ~ May 02, 2022

 And it's Monday again...

Plus... it's also May!! 

End of one month and beginning of new month can be extremely busy for me, especially when you are getting ready to launch all new material with the release of the New Annual Stampin' Up Catalogue 2022 -23. 

New month also means a new newsletter for the "Paper Adventures" VIP club (you'll find the sign up for that to the right๐Ÿ‘‰ and up๐Ÿ‘† ), new exclusive tutorials ( we have a few going out this month ), as well as the new content for this blog. 

Today's card is quite basic, it's pretty much your classic card fold. I did however create 3 cards using different images to show you how easy is to create a beautiful card using pretty much any stamp set. 

I chose today's first card using my Pinterest stats. I have recreated the card that has had the most pins this spring. When a card has thousands of saves on a Pinterest post why not create it again using different designer series paper. Perhaps a new paper coming on May 3! !

This card uses the "Happy Hedgehogs" Bundle from the original card that I created for Pinterest. 

This card uses a traditional card base of  5 1/2 x 8 1/2 in Granny Apple Green, scored @ 4 1/4.
I cut a piece of designer series paper from the New Tea Boutique paper pack at 4 x 5 1/4 and attached it to the card front. 
I used Scalloped Contour Dies to create a scalloped rectangle cut in Basic White. 
I stamped a branch and the little bird in the top right corner of the white rectangle layer. 
Colored the bird and teeny flower. 
Stamped the words from a New Bundle ~ Sweet Songbirds, on the white rectangle layer.
I stamped the hedgehog on scrap of basic White using Memento Ink and colored him using Soft Suede Stampin' Blends markers.
Stamped a little grass to ground the hedgehog on, then attached the hedgehog to the white layer. 
Using dimensionals on the back of the white layer I attached it to the card front. 
Every card needs a little bling, so I used a few blue rhinestones to add a little sparkle. 
I stamped the inside card panel with my desired sentiment on a piece of Basic White cardstock cut at 4 x 5 1/4 and attached it to the card inside. 

That's it! That easy! 

I created 2 other card examples below. 

This card used an adorable new stamp set and punch called "Sweet Songbirds" & "Tea Boutique" designer series paper,  available to order on May 3, 2022. 

This card was created with the current " Flowering Rainboots" Bundle, paired with the new "Tea Boutique" designer series paper.
