Multi Fold Card

I have a CASE today of a card I received in Charlotte at OnStage from a sweet friend.  Vicki Townsend’s card was different in decorations and the sentiments, but the fold idea came from her swap card.

 

Stampin' Up!, A Big Thank You, Painted Glass, Jackie Beers, All My Love

The card was a bit difficult to photograph because of the folds, so I finally took the picture with it laying flat.  It was well worth the trouble though.  I love this fold.  If you follow my blog, you know that folds are my favorite thing to add to a card!

You also know that I occasionally do DSP scrap cards.  Well, here is another one!  It is great for the leftover pieces.  I have all of the meaasurments further down in the post.

Here is the open card.

 

 

You can see that there are two places on this card that you could write.  Or you can place another DSP piece on the smaller white space and use the larger one to sign on.  I almost stamped onto the white panel, but had cut two Crumb Cake circles by mistake.  I saw that as a subconscious need to add both of the circles to the card. LOL!!    I like the layered circle as opposed to simply stamping on the card stock.  It gives a bit more dimension to the card.

 

Measurements and Directions:

  • Card base is 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
  • Crumb Cake layer is 3 1/4 X 4 1/2
  • Multi fold white piece is 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 1 1/2, 3, 5 1/2, 8.  Fold and burnish and then make mountain valley folds
  • DSP layers are 4 X 1 1/4, 4 X 2 1/4, 4 X 2 3/4

Made With Love

I have another new stamp set (bundle) I am breaking out for you today.  It is the set It Starts With Art!  It is adorable in every way.  This set would work for almost any crafter.  I love flexibility.

 

Stampin' Up!, It Starts With Art, Jackie Beers, Follow Your Art

I fell in love with this sheet of the Designer Series Paper.  It is named Follow Your Art DSP, and has everything in it that is in the stamp set.  This piece just screamed out to me.  I love the bold strokes of color!!

Other than the bright colors I chose, the card is pretty simple.  I stamped the stack of ribbon and colored each one with Stampin’ Blend Markers.  I had to add some Wink of Stella to make them Sparkle! , since that is what the sentiment says.  How cute is that??

Did you notice the little charm hanging from the paperclip?  Those are both from the Follow Your Art Embellishment Kit.  I normally am not too excited about the embellishment kits.  I tend to stick to ribbon and bling.  These were just too cute to do without.  I ran a piece of White Baker’s Twine through the loop of the charm to tie it to the paperclip.  Just for good measure, I added a glue dot beneath the charm to keep it from moving around.

Thank you for stopping by today and always!  I hope you will return next week for some more ideas.

You’re The Best

I am mixing old products with some new pieces in today’s card.  I love doing that.  It is sort of a “one last spin” with some of the retiring products.

 

I wish I could say that I did something to create that gorgeous lace layer!!  But I cannot.  It is a FABULOUS set of cards and envelopes that are all cut for you.  They are just waiting for you to choose the color of card stock or designer series paper to place behind the lace look.  It also comes in a gorgeous metal tin.  It is named the Bird Ballad Laser Cut Cards In A Tin.  The envelope is shown here.  I should have shown the back flap of the envelope.  It is a pretty scalloped flap.

I chose Coastal Cabana for the color to show through the lace.  I used a rolled up glue dot in each corner to adhere it to the laser cut front.  The Flirty Flamingo Doily is part of a pack of 4 colors of doilies.  Perfectly named Colored Doilies!!  They are retiring at the end of the month.  I thought it worked wonderfully here though.

I also used the retiring 1 1/4″ Circle Punch to punch out the sentiment from Very Vanilla card stock.  I failed to mention that the cards and envelopes are Very Vanilla.  Sorry about that.

To adhere the doily, I placed a glue dot in the center of the lace layer, then placed the doily over top.  The sentiment is layered with Stampin’ Dimensionals to raise it.  The dimensional also help in adhering the doily.  I topped it off with three Share What You Love Artisan Pearls, another retiring product.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I really appreciate it.  Please come back tomorrow for another new sneak peek of products.

Loyal & True

This week is National Police Week.  The Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington DC is the center of the ceremonies that will be held.  Sadly there will be way too many names added to the memorial wall again this year.

Today’s card is a simple card to honor all Law Enforcement Officers.

 

 

I am sad to see this Loyal & True stamp set and the military stamp set retire this catalog.  It will stay with me however.

For today’s card I kept it very simple and clean.  The base is Night of Navy card stock and the Blue Line is Blueberry Bushel.  Other than the main piece, I just added the Loyal & True along with the My Hero.  The only thing raised is the center blue heart.  I fussy cut it and raised it with a dimensional.  I used the Crushed Curry and Blueberry Bushel Stampin’ Write Markers to color the badge.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great beginning to your week and will return tomorrow.

Double Pocket Fold for Pals May Hop

 

Welcome to the Pals’ May  Blog Hop. We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects with “More Than One Score.” You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

My “more than one score” card is a Double Pocket Card.  It has a few scores and a few folds, but it needs very little adhesive to hold it together.  The added bonus is that it can be made in quite a few sizes.  I made mine today to hold a tea bag and a note card.  Of course, I used the retiring Tea Room Designer Series Paper to go with the tea bag!

 

Stampin' Up!, Jackie Beers, Tea Room, Frosted Bouquet, Free As A Bird

Tea Room Designer Series Paper, 146894

 

I mixed and match with my products used.  I have the Tea Room DSP, which is retiring, the Frosted Bouquet Framelits, which are carrying over, and the Free As A Bird stamp set, which is new for the upcoming catalog.  One of the best about Stampin’ Up! products is that they mix and match so well.

I got this inspiration from a Splitcoast tutorial from Claudia Rosa.  It was from several years ago.  I played around with paper size until I got what actually fit the tea bag.  For an unknown reason, that was my original idea for it!

Here is the card pulled out.  I used the Detailed Trio Punch to make the ribbon hole.  It is just the perfect size!

 

 

I should have mentioned above that my card is 4 X 4.  So with the tea bag adding some thickness, it would still fit into a regular size envelope.  At the bottom of my post, along with the supply list, I will add the directions on how to fold this.  It is super easy, and I have some photos to go along.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 12, 2019 when our Hoppin’ Pals share their “Anything with Wings” projects. Don’t miss the fun!

  • 8 X 8 piece of card stock or DSP, scored at 4″ on two sides with your desired pattern facing up
  • Fold and burnish, then lay flat, again with your desired pattern facing up
  • Cut along the left side score into the center intersection
  • Take the top left corner and fold it approximately 3/4 of the way down, but keep straight with the score lines
  • Take the bottom right section and fold it up along the score lines, so that it is now a triangle
  • Fold the top left over on top of the top right
  • Fold the bottom left underneath the bottom right
  • Fold the now bottom right corner up over top of the fold that is on top of it
  • Burnish all of your folds
  • Finally, fold the bottom section up and on top of the top section

Animal Expedition

I have been finishing my swap cards and 3D swaps for OnStage in Charlotte this weekend.  Whooo!! I have been really far behind on all of that.  But I am down to just putting the boxes together.  They will get worked on during the ride up there tomorrow.  I will share that project with you next week.

Before I get to  my card, I snapped a picture of my gorgeous azalea bush that has decided to pop out in the last couple of days.  Here it is.

 

For todays card I have a really quick and sweet card.  I have been using some Annual Catalog stamps this week and today continues that theme.  I went with the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  It is so adorable!  And the Label Me Pretty stamp set for the little sentiment.

 

The only stamping on this card is the sentiment.  The sweet animals were punched from the Animal Expedition Designer Series Paper.  How easy is that!!!  I paired it with another piece of DSP from the same package.  The base colors are Lemon Lime Twist and Berry Burst.  They are both on the soon to be retiring list.  They are in the 2017-2019 In Colors.  So we have known they would be leaving us.  I really do wish the Lemon Lime Twist could stay.

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I will share my swaps next week.  Please Like my FaceBook page, Blue Line Stamping, and you may get to see some sneak peeks at new products coming soon.
