It Starts With Art Handmade Card Tutorial Stampin' Up! 2019

Free online handmade card step by step tutorial using the follow your art suite 


This is a really easy way to make a handmade card using both stamping technique and making using of the DSP –  made by Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Tricia Smith, based in Fife, Scotland, UK



Hello and welcome to another project tutorial. Today I decided to make a bright, fun and colourful handmade card using the Follow Your Art Suite.

I started off with Pacific Point Card stock I then added a section of DSP which has lots of lovely pen and pencil images on it. There are so many co-ordinating colours that match this suite that the possibilities are endless.

I then stamped some images in whisper white along the section of the card not covered by the DSP.

I stamped some images, coloured them with blends, adhered them to a circle layer then embossed those three circles with the co-ordinating button button embossing folder. I then layered each circle up on to co-ordinating cardstock. I changed the bottom right circle last minute and replaced it with a sentiment and image stamped in pacific point and blushing bride 🙂

Finally, I added some of the calypso coral bakers twine to make a bow embellishment and added some wink of stella (my fav!).

Oh – I also added an insert to this card and stamped a banner of images down the left side, and added a final sentiment in the middle. Finito!

My card base measures 5 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
DSP layer measures 5 7/8″” x 3″
I used the 1 3/4 and 2 inch circles punches.

Here is a closer look…. I hope you enjoy the tutorial 🙂
