Artistic Thanks

Before I get to today’s card I have to share with you, I want to mention again my Paper Share for the upcoming Mini Catalog and Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper.  You would receive a sample of all of the new DSP in the Mini Catalog, as well as SAB catalog.  It does not include the returning favorites.  This is my first time doing a Paper Share, so I hope you will sign up.  You can see all of the information and the sign up form by Clicking HERE.

Now, on to the card for today.  This is another one using the Expressions In Ink Designer Series Paper.  You all are probably familiar with how gorgeous this paper is.  It does so much of the work by itself.

The Paper

As I mentioned at the top, this DSP is so beautiful that it is a wonderful card all by itself.  There are a couple of sheets like this one with white running through the middle.  I love being able to cut the paper to use the sheets like this one without covering up any of the color and the gold.

Of course I chose the other colors based on the DSP.  The green is Soft Succulent and was chosen as a soft pairing for the Magenta Madness of the rose.  The paper has both Magenta Madness and Polished Pink.  I used the softer Polished Pink as the cardstock layers.

 

Stamps and Dies

The stamps used for the flower, leaves, and sentiment are from the Artistically Inked stamp set.  I used the matching Artistic Dies for the stamped leaves and flower, and also for the DSP cut small flower above the Thanks.  You can save 10% by purchasing the stamp and dies as a bundle.

The little flower cut from the DSP does not show the shape as well as I thought it would in the photo.  But you cannot miss the great gold running through it.  To finish the card I added a gold gem from the Genial Gems to the center of large flower.  Gold is always a good choice!!!

Earth Beauty Corner Tuck Card

I have found another Fun Fold card to share.  You may have seen this design from fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Sue Campfield.  She has a couple of posts and videos on it.  I fell in love immediately and had to give it a try.

Stampin' Up!, Perfectly Plaid, Beauty of the Earth, Beauty of Friendship, Painted Labels, Jackie Beers

 

Corner Tuck Fun Fold

As I said at the top of the post, this card is from Susan Campfield and she has a video.  I used her basic measurements and added a little bit.  The inside of her card did not have an extra layer.  To add a bit of carry through, I stamped the Misty Moonlight layer with the stamped tree images.  These are from the Perfectly Plaid stamp set.  I thought they worked perfectly with the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper.

The other thing I added was the layer of cardstock behind the DSP strip on the left side of the front.  It seemed the DSP sort of bled into the base color.  I also used that strip to anchor the front square focal layer.  I centered and placed the square layer right up against that left strip.  That allowed me to better center everything.  You can see from the photo that the layer tucks underneath the corner but is still fairly centered on the card.

Here is the view of the open card.

Stamps and Paper

The star of this card, besides the fun fold, is the DSP.  I mentioned above that it it the Beauty of The Earth Designer Series Paper.  This is what most people would think of as the back side.  You know how I love using the back side!!  And I love that the corner piece and the other two containing the trees are all from the same sheet of paper.  The corner piece is from the top of the paper.

In trying to add some texture and detail to the inside of the card, I decided some matching trees would be the perfect thing.  By finding this similar tree in the Perfectly Plaid set, it seemed just meant to be.  It is a carryover from the last two holiday catalogs and a favorite of mine.  I love the small tree images that work for various seasons and needs.

The sentiments are from the Beauty of Friendship stamp set.  These are perfect for any time.  We should let people know whenever they inspire us in some way.  The mix of fonts are always something that draws me to a sentiment.  The front sentiment is cut using a die from the Painted Labels Dies.  It is finished off with a Glitter Ribbon to ground it.

Measurements and My Directions

  • Card base of Night of Navy is cut 4 1/4 X 8 and scored at 2 1/2
  • Inside layer of Misty Moonlight is cut to 5 1/4 X 4 1/8
  • Front left Misty Moonlight layer is cut to 1 X 4
  • Front left DSP layer is cut to 7/8 X 3 7/8
  • Center Misty Moonlight layer is cut to 3 1/8 X 3 1/8
  • Center DSP layer is cut to 3 X 3
  • Inside White layer is cut to 3 X 3
  • The right corner is Night of Navy cardstock and a piece of DSP. Both are cut to 3 X 3 and then each is cut on the diagonal.  Save one half piece from each paper for later.
  • Glue the triangle of DSP and cardstock together to make a stronger corner.  Add dimensionals to each corner.
  • Stamp the tree image on the Misty Moonlight inside layer using Misty Moonlight Ink that you stamp off first.
  • Adhere this layer to the inside of the card.
  • Adhere the corner piece flush against the corners of the inside.
  • Test fold the front flap and make sure it clears the point of the corner layer.  You may need to trim just a fraction off of that end.
  • Layer and add the Left side strip to the left edge of the front flap.  Space it evenly at top, bottom, and left side.
  • Add the focal layer right up against strip.
  • Place the White inside sentiment in the center of the inside and it should be hidden by the front flap.

Joy

Today’s card is another sneak peek from the upcoming Mini Catalog.  I have not really thought of Christmas cards yet, except for one I did for a blog hop.  But after playing with this stamp set, it has given me some wonderful ideas.  I hope it inspires you as well.

 

 

Stamp Set

As I said, this set is from the upcoming Mini Catalog, so I do not have the photo of it to add to the supply list.  But it is the Whimsical Trees set.  It also has matching Dies, DSP, and a Ribbon in the Suite.  All of them are amazing!!!!

All of the stamps used here are included in the stamp set.  This is probably my favorite of the trees.  And it stamps wonderfully!  Even though it is red rubber, the ornaments (or lights if you prefer) fit perfectly over top of the stamped tree image.  So it is very easy to line it up so lights are not off in the white space.

I love the trio of hanging ornaments.  The stamp includes the trio all in one.  You could always add more of the ornaments across the top of the card.  They remind me of some of the ornaments from my childhood.  Coloring them was really quick and easy with the Stampin’ Blends.  I will say that I tried stamping them in Memento Black and it was too dark for the smaller image.  Basic Gray is what I ended up using.

Layout

I wanted this to be one of the “Clean” cards that I see so often.  Sadly, I struggle to do this type.  I like layers!!  But I controlled myself and only did the stamped layer and the base layer.  By stamping directly onto the layer I am always afraid I will make a mistake.  Luckily that did not happen this time.

The “Joy” focal point was the only added layers.  I used the smallest of the Layering Circles Dies to get this look.  To finish it off I added a single Rhinestone for some bling!

Yummy Treats

The card I am sharing with you today has a bit of an “old fashioned” look to it.  At least it does to me.  That look aside, I love the card and the stamp set it is from.

 

Stampin' Up!, Sweets & Treats, Pattern Party, Jackie Beers

 

Stamp Set

I hope you think this card is as cute as I do.  Since I am in an older age group, LOL, I remember when there were pies sitting out to cool or waiting to be cut.  This stamp set is the Sweets & Treats stamp set.  (I do not have the photo of the stamp set in my supply list because it is not available yet)  It is in the upcoming Mini Catalog.  The catalog goes live on the 3rd of August.  So just a week away!!

Here is a view of the inside with another fun stamp from the set.

 

I could not resist adding that candied apple to the inside.  Of course since I used Granny Apple Green as one of the colors, I had to make it a Granny Smith Apple!  Both of the sentiments are from the stamp set as well.

Colors

When I decided on the apple pie, I immediately had the “old fashioned” thought.  So I looked for a DSP that fit the bill.  It was located in the Host Rewards DSP of Pattern Party.  This is an amazing pack of paper, and the price makes it even better!

All of the Designer Series Paper comes from the Pattern Party pack.  And the other colors used are pulled from the paper as well.  The Cajun Craze is a bit darker than the Calypso Coral in the paper but works perfectly.

Layout and Measurements

The fun fold was chosen to highlight the Designer Series Paper that is on the inside of the card.  I thought it looked like old time wallpaper.  The image ended up being a bit larger than I had planned, but still enough of the DSP shows.

  • The card base is Cajun Craze cut to 5 1/2 X 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4, then cut 2 1/4 off front
  • The Inside DSP is cut to 5 1/4 X 4
  • The front DSP is cut to 1 3/4 X 5 1/4
  • The Cajun Craze front layer is cut to 3 3/4 X 3 3/4
  • The front stamped White layer is cut to 3 1/2 X 3 1/2
  • The inside stamped White layer is cut to 3 1/2 X 3 1/2

Interlocking Gate Fold

I have made this same Interlocking Gate Fold card previously.  Today is simply using different DSP and a different stamp set.  This version is using the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper along with the In Symmetry stamp set.

 

Stampin' Up!, In Symmetry, Sweet Symmetry, Jackie Beers

 

Here is a view of how it opens.

 

Fun Fold

The Interlocking Gate Fold, that is what I call it, is a fun and easy card to make.  The only difficulty is aligning the bars across the front to be equal distance apart.  The top and bottom bars are connected by one that is hidden.  The flower is attached to the hidden bar.  These two are attached to the card on the left side.  The center bar is by itself and is attached on the right side.

Products

The In Symmetry stamp set and the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series paper are two of the four products in the Sweet Symmetry Suite of products.  I did not use the punch which Bundles with the stamp set, or the matching Flirty Flamingo ribbon.

To make the flower, I stamped the large flower stamp twice.  It is a photopolymer stamp set.  I inked and stamped onto a square of Basic White cardstock.  The first time I had the flower in the straight up, normal position.  For the second stamping, I re-inked and turned it upside down.  Because it is photopolymer, I could see pretty clearly the bottom of the first stamping.  So lining them up was pretty simple.  Then all I needed were my handy Paper Snips to fussy cut the flower out.  The final touch was adding a Blue Adhesive Gem to the center of the flower.

Previous version with directions
