FUN FOLD FRIDAY

I saved this idea that I saw earlier on Pinterest.  The original creating and my inspiration came from Kelly Acheson.  This is a very easy fold to do and can be used for anything.


Here are the dimensions:
Base (Balmy Blue) 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
Balmy Blue strip 4 1/4 x 1, scored at 1 1/2
DSP strips (retired) 5 1/2 x 1/2.  You can cut these to be 1/4 instead of 1/2 if you want.  
Whisper White 2 7/8 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.
Scraps for message

Stamps: Healing Hugs, Painted Glass (message), Amazing Artisan
Ink:  Flirty Flamingo, Balmy Blue, Pear Pizzazz
Stitched Framelits, Layering Ovals

Glue your DSP strips to the sides of the card.
Glue the back of the white strip to the base.
Put adhesive on the small folded end of the Balmy Blue strip, bring around to the front and add your Big Shot pieces with the message.

WEDNESDAY

Today I am sharing another card using the new Embossing Mat, using the Petal Palette stamp set and matching thinlits.

In the corner I did just the embossing as I did in Monday's card.  Today I did the leaves by cutting first with the Big Shot and then embossing.  Follow Monday's video link to show how to put the sandwich together to do both steps.  

Here is a close up of the leaves.  When you cut and then emboss, you get all the little spaces that are not popped up by just cutting.  Such a cool effect.  I will be trying more of these with different framelits/thinlits.
Supplies for the card:
Sea foam (new) background card stock, Garden Green, Balmy Blue (new).
Petal Palette and Painted Window (for words) stamp sets.
Garden Green and Momento ink pads.
Retired doilies and black jewel

MONDAY

I wanted to play with the new Embossing Mat today so here is a simple card using the new product.


If you look closely you can see the embossed outline of the flowers and then the embossing at the bottom.  I used the Petal Palette stamp set and thinlits to do this technique. the message is from the Rooted in Nature set.

At the end of this post is a link to the Stampin' Up video for using your new Embossing Mat.  You can use it several ways which is always a plus!

I stamped my flowers first and then I laid the matching framelit around the flowers, secured with a little Washi Tape to keep it in place.
Turn this upside down on your Big shot platform following the directions in the video. This picture shows you what it looks like after it has gone through the Big Shot.  Sorry for the blur, but I think you get the picture.
I colored it with Stampin' Blends, which will soon be coming to the Stampin' Up warehouse - there has been a little delay. 
To get the embossing at the bottom of the card, lay your framelit under your card stock, cutting edge up, and follow the platform sequence directions.
I love how this turned out - very easy.

Here is the link to the video.  
There are also other videos on Pinterest produced by fellow demonstrators.  I will show you a couple more samples later in the week.

FUN FOLD FRIDAY

Finally sharing the corner fold card I did for our stamp fest last weekend.  Using Rooted in Nature once again.  Can't wait to get a few more new stamps on Monday.

Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Shaded Spruce card stock; Shaded Spruce and Night of Navy Ink; Rooted in Nature stamp set and framelits; Dazzling Diamonds; retired Enamel Shapes.

Although it seems like this fold would be hard, it is not.  Here is a video by Sage Kimble, the Mad Stamper, that shows you exactly how to make your cuts - really very easy.

WEDNESDAY

Trying to get back in gear and regular Mon, Wed and Fri posts.  Things have just been busy. I don't have a lot of new stamp sets, but I was still playing with the Rooted In Nature set.  Here is another simple card I came up with.

Supplies:  Vanilla, Night of Navy, Crumb Cake card stock, Triple Banner Punch, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Crumb Cake and Shaded Spruce (NEW) ink, Metallic Pearls, Layering Ovals Framelits.
I stamped off the double tree in the background and then stamped the single tree and cut it out with the matching framelit.  I also stamped off the log rings in the background.

The new catalog is amazing!  Let me know if you need one and I will be sure to get one to you. I will include a wish list sheet because you are going to want it all, and a coupon for a FREE pack of Metallic pearls with a $50 order by July 31. There are a lot of new colors, some of our old favorites returning.  Here is a link to the new and returning colors and the reorganization of the color families.
If you don't want to wait until you get your catalog you can go here and download the catalog so you can see how the wonderful products.

MONDAY

I have been working on the card that I am designing for the June 9th Stamp Fest.  Here is the first one I came up with.  I like the simplicity.

I used the Rooted in Nature stamp set and matching Framelits from the new catalog.  We will be highlighting lots of new products at the stamp fest.  I also used the new Shaded Spruce ink pad.  I love the rich green color.  Other products used were the Stitched Framelits, Navy Blue Twine, Banner Triple Punch, Navy Blue Ink, and Navy Blue, Shaded Spruce and Vanilla card stock.
This was not the card that my fellow demonstrators chose as their favorite from the samples I made, so I will show you the final one on Friday since it is a fun fold.

WEDNESDAY

The count down is on for getting your retiring stamps and accessories.  I will be showcasing cards using retiring stamps.  Stamps will continue to be produced until May 25th and then they will be on a "while supplies last" status.  I will be sharing cards that I have made or ones I have seen on Pinterest.

The two cards today use the Grown With Love stamp set and matching framelit dies.

This card was created by Holly Pederson.


This card is by Rosanne Mulhern.
