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.

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.

July InKing Royalty Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s July Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature Christmas! I hope you are in a Holiday mood because there is a lot of Christmas fun headed your way. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
Christmas is my favorite time of year for card making.  I am very excited to share with you a card using two of the Christmas sets in the upcoming Mini Catalog.

Stampin' Up!, stockings dies, whimsical trees, tidings of christmas, Jackie Beers

 

Stockings

The stockings are so darn cute!!  They are from the Stockings Dies as part of the Sweet Stockings Suite of products.  For this card I only used the stockings from the suite.  I wanted them to be the star of the show.  Instead of stamping the design stocking, I used the Greenery Embossing Folder to give them the knitted looking texture.  The toe layer is part of the dies as is the front banner looking lever holding the stockings.

I added just a simple sentiment of “Joy” by going with a third stocking.  This one is cut from the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper.  I then used Cherry Cobbler Ink to stamp the Joy.  The Joy and the inside sentiment are both from the Whimsical Trees stamp set.  That is another great set!

Colors

The color choices all came from the gorgeous DSP.  As mentioned above, it is the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper from the Annual Catalog.  I fell in love with this piece immediately.  For a different look to my card, I went with Pool Party as the base color.  It is not a listed color of the paper stack but works perfectly.

The Sahara Sand also works perfectly with this sheet of paper.  I used it to separate the base and DSP.  The lever on the front has a little strip of another sheet from the DSP pack.  To bring out the Real Red / Cherry Cobbler of the paper, I added that strip to hang the stockings from.  And to also stamp the Joy on the center stocking.

Layout and Measurements

This card is one I have seen several times lately.  I think of it as an offset gate fold card.  I have already played with a variety of different sizes of the folds.  Here are the measurements for this one.

  • Base of Pool Party is cut to 4 1/4 X 11 and scored at 4 & 9 1/2
  • Sahara Sand is cut to 4 X 3 3/4 and 4 X 1 1/4
  • DSP is cut to 3 7/8 X 3 5/8 and 3 7/8 X 1 18
  • Inside White layer is 4 X 5 1/4

 

Here is a view of the open card.  I added an extra stocking there as well.

 

Reminder that the stockings and sentiments are from the Stockings Dies and the Whimsical Trees (sentiments) stamp set.  These products are in the Mini Catalog that goes live on August 3rd.

Pals July Blog Hop

 

Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is “Wonderful Cards/Projects from the Garden” where our design team showcase projects from things found in a garden, such as flowers, vegetables, fruits, or even a garden scene. We really hope that you enjoy and will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. Once you finish here, you will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I have to say that I LOVE flowers, but somewhere along the way I lost my green thumb!  That being said, I think it makes me appreciate and love the Stampin’ Up! beautiful Designer Series Paper even more.   Of course, the paper is the star of the card I have to share with you.  And I have added a bit of a Fun Fold for good measure.

 

Stampin' Up!, Hand Penned, fun fold, Jackie Beers

 

I am calling this card a Standing Double Easel Card.  Instead of making the front easel section on a quarter piece of cardstock, I added it to the front of a regular size top folded card.  This gives a much easier way to personalize and write a note to the recipient without trying to add that to the fun fold sections.

Paper

Since this is a garden theme, I chose my favorite of the flower papers currently available.  The Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper is such a pretty “hand drawn” looking paper.  The colors from the DSP created the additional colors I chose.  The Cinnamon Cider is a bit unexpected at first, but them is very appropriate with the garden thinking.

Folded Card View

 

 

Folded, the card fits easily into a regular A2 envelope.  The front folded section is Basic White and DSP, so not very much thickness is added.

Stamps

The Hand-Penned Petals stamp set matches the DSP extremely well.  So much so that after I colored the stamped images with Stampin’ Blends, it almost blended in to the DSP!  There are two different large images included in the stamp set.  I stamped one of each image on the two focal layers using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and then colored them similar to the flowers of the DSP.

The only sentiment showing is on the front of the inside section of the easel.  A simple Thanks is all that was needed.  It is stamped using the Cinnamon Cider Ink.

Finishing

To complete the card, I added one of the upcoming Mini Catalog Brushed Metallic Dots to the large front flower.  These dots are fabulous!!  When adhering the front stamped image, I found it best to lay the card flat and press  the folds flat.  The front stamped layer is the same size as the inside stamped layer.  I lined up the front image directly over top of the inside one and then added adhesive to the bottom section only.

Measurements 

  • The base card of Cinnamon Cider is a top fold cut to 4 1/4 X 11
  • The Basic White layer is cut to 4 X 9 3/4 and scored at 2 1/4 & 4 1/2
  • The large DSP piece is cut to 3 3/4 X 5
  • The two small DSP pieces are cut to 3 3/4 X 2, there is one on the front and one on the inside of the fold
  • The Mint Macaroon layer is cut to 2 1/2 X 4 1/4
  • The two Basic White stamped pieces are cut to 2 1/4 X 4

 

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team, because the Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on August 11th. Our theme will be “My Happiest Season” when our Design Team creates a project showcase projects inspired by their favorite season of the year. Until then, have fun in your craft space.

Waterfall Card

I have a Waterfall Card to share today.  To be honest, I had not made one of these in many years.  But I had a request for a class I was doing for a group of ladies.  They all loved it.  I hope you will as well.

 

Waterfall Cards are so much fun to play with.  However, there are several steps to getting them to work properly.  The first thing you need is stamps that all work together.  My preference has always been animal stamp sets.  Having the same type animal in different positions and expressions is perfect.  With that in mind, I chose the Way To Goat stamp set.  These goats are so adorable to play with and are wonderfully drawn by the Stampin’ Up! Artists.

 

Stamps and Paper

I chose the Way To Goat because of the adorable little goats.  I chose the DSP because of this pin stripe piece from the Well Suited Designer Series Paper.  Goats are not at all sophisticated, but the color worked perfectly with the gray outline and white cardstock.   But the more I looked at the card, the more I thought it was a perfect match!

The yellow was for a touch of contrast with all of the gray.  And it matches the flower the first goat you see is ready to eat.  The tip of the pull end was punched using the Delightful Tag Topper Punch .

Measurements and Instructions

This was my first time adding a PDF to the post.  It did not go as well as planned. I will improve before I add the next one!!!  If you have any questions, please contact me.

Balloon Chicks for Royal Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s February Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature balloons, so you are in for a celebratory treat. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

I believe balloons are a definite Fun item.  Anything that makes me Smile is fun.  So I have combined the smile inducing, adorable, Happy Birthday Chick stamp set with a Fun Fold to share for this Blog Hop Challenge.

 

Stampin' Up!, Hey birthday chick bundle, ice cream corner, jackie beers

 

This is the first time I have made this Fun Fold.   There are a couple of names that I have seen in looking for it on various card sites.  So I chose to call it the Corner Fold.  It worked perfectly to show off the balloons.  And since the little chicks are shouting Happy Birthday, the balloons are appropriate.

Here is the inside view and you can see the fold as well.

 

 

I LOVE the chick with the balloon hanging off her tail!  You can see the corner pieces under the chick and above her.  Those fold inside the card when it is closed.  I positioned the chick to lay down with the fold and not be seen when the card is closed.  The three balloons from the closed card are attached on the back side of the fold.

The chicks are all stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink and colored with the Stampin’ Blends.  All of the colors will be listed in the supply list.  They are all cut out using the matching Dies in the bundle.  The Happy Birthday from the front is stamped and punched out using the Classic Label Punch.

I chose to have a background for the balloons as the strings are not really sturdy.  I used the 2″ Circle Punch for this.  All of the DSP is from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Series Paper.  I think it worked perfectly for this birthday card.

Hearts for Royal Blog Hop

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s January Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are having fun with our stamping favorites – our favorite themes for seasonal cards and projects. This month’s projects feature hearts, so prepare yourself for lots and lots of love. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

There are so many “heart” stamps to choose from!  I had narrowed it down to about three, when I ran across a set still on my desk.  I knew this was the perfect one, even though a tad out of the norm when you think about hearts.  Or at least the way I was originally thinking.

 

Stampin' Up!, Treasures of life, artistry blooms, stitched be mine, Jackie Beers

 

The center heart is the one that caught my eye and made me decide on this direction!  It is from the new to the Mini Catalog Treasures of Life stamp set.  Oh My!  I am not a parent or grandparent, (except for 4 legged varieties)  but I still fell in love with this set.  And luckily I have friends who have recently become first time grandparents.

The DSP is the unexpected Artistry Blooms Designer Series Paper.  I pulled the other colors from that paper.  To cut the hearts I used the Be Mine Stitched Dies.  The main hearts as well as the ones on the bottom are from the die set.

Here is a view of the inside.  I cut around the negative to give a frame to the sentiment.  I decided one more heart was needed.  This also shows another view of the Fun Fold.

 

 

I cased this Fun Fold from fellow demonstrator Susie Wood.  If you follow me at all, you know I love fun folds.  This one is a keeper.

Measurements:

  • Base of Coastal Cabana is 4 1/4 X 9 scored at 5 1/2
  • Base layers are Highland Heather cut 4 X 4, and 1 5/8 X 4
  • DSP is cut 3 7/8 X 3 7/8 and 1 1/2 X 3 7/8
  • White inside layer is 3 1/2 X 4
