TWO Fancy Fold Christmas Cards

Hey Guys!

On my YouTube live video from today the 10th of December, I showed you two Christmas Cards that have a Fancy Fold! I LOVE cards that have something added to them that makes them more interesting and different folds definitely make them interesting!

First, I am going to show you the one that I am absolutely over the moon happy with!!

One of my Two Christmas cards with a Fancy Fold

Did you notice that other than the fold, this card isn’t all that detailed? Furthermore you only have to stamp Two images! Even though it doesn’t take a lot of stamps, it is STUNNING! Sitting here in my stamp room, I love to look at this card! Subsequently this will have to go to someone special who will really appreciate it!

As always here are the ingredients to make this card:

  • Stamps:
  • In The Pines
  • Wrapped in Christmas
  • Inks:
  • Old Olive
  • Crumb Cake
  • Markers: Pretty Peacock & Real Red
  • Paper:
  • Pretty Peacock: 11″ x 6 1/2″, scored @ 2 3/4″, 5 1/2″ & 8 1/4″ (Landscape), Turn to portrait: Score @ 1″ on BOTH sides. Cut while in portrait Place on 1″ mark then cut from 1 1/2″ to 9 1/2″, do this cut on BOTH sides!! Place back in so it is Landscape place cardstock to 1 1/2″ and score BETWEEN the cuts, flip and do the same on other side.
  • Copper: 2 1/2″ x 7/8″ (x4), 4 3/8″ x 2 5/8″ (x2), scrap for Deer
  • Brightly Gleaming Specialty DSP: 4 3/8″ x 1 3/8″ (x4….2 designs)

  • Greenery folder

Now onto the Second card in my Live YouTube video! Incidentally this one is a peek-a-boo card. As with the first card this one also uses minimal stamps. Furthermore, this card is very striking even though it doesn’t have the folds the first card has.

How to copy a card and make it your own.

Hey Guys!,

First off, I got this idea from the Holiday Catalog from Stampin’ Up! I like to get ideas and then change them up to make them my own design. Next, we will take a walk through my thought process! As usual, here is a video showing you how to make this card. Finally, this card on page 43 is the card I wanted to make my own:

The card on the right is the one I am going to make into my own design!

Generally, when looking for a project to do, I first look in Pinterest, but this time I looked at the SU! catalog! Consequently it ended up being an awesome place to get an idea! Furthermore, I wanted to use the In The Pines Bundle and this would work with an idea I had in my head. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the circle that is on the card above. However, I did have the die from the Painted Labels that let me cut out a circle design that would take it’s place! Also, I wanted to use the trees singularly from the stamp set but die cut to have more detail. Likewise, instead of the ribbon that comes out the side of the circle I used gold foil cut into two strips. By the way, I DID use the acorns for my card, here is what I made:

I replaced some things to make this design my own creation!

Usually, I like to have layers on my cards and this time is no exception! Likewise, I love to sponge the edges of my cards and I did that with Crumb Cake and then Early Espresso to add a dark edge that makes the card pop! As a rule, I like to have my insides go with the front using the same layers, this (to me) seems to make the card look more professional.

Notice how the inside mirrors the front?

Finally, here are the details for this card:

Stamps:
In the Pines Bundle
For Unto Us
Inks:
Crumb Cake
Early Espresso
Old Olive
Paper:
Crumb Cake 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", 5" x 3 3/4" (x2)
Old Olive 5 1/4" x 4" (x2), scraps for trees
Gold Foil
Misc: 
Wonder of The Season OR Forever Greenery combo
Jingle Bells OR Acorn Trinkets
Glue Dots
MultiPurpose Liquid Glue
Mini Dimensionals
Painted Labels Dies
Banners Pick a Punch

As always, below will be the same supplies listed in picture form, click on any of them to be taken to my On Line Store! Subsequently, any purchase over $35 you will get from me a PDF with 16 project ideas that include pictures and step by step instructions! So then, this is a thank you from me!

Before I go, I wanted to tell you that I have another card that you can see here that I took from the catalog and made it my own (see page 38). As you can see I like to get ideas and then change them up to make them my own design.

In Conclusion, thank you so much for coming to visit me! Together, we can make things we see into our creations!

Day of Service

Hey Guys!

Yesterday we had a Day of Service with Stampin’ Up! Our CEO Sara Douglass was online and she sent out the pdf that will help us make Beautiful handmade cards fast and easy!

THIS was extremely helpful and made my cardmaking go quickly!

I mailed out all the cards today, wanna see what I sent? Keep in mind that I used retiring product, but YOU still have time to get that DSP, Noble Peacock Rhinestones & Ribbon if they are still available go to my OnLine Store now!

Below I am showing you each one!

Card 1

Sorry the Sentiment is light, it says “I changed out of my NIGHT Pajamas into my DAY pajamas to send you this card” All the insides say “Sending you a paper hug”.
Card 2, Sending Hugs
Card 3, sentiment is the same on most of them…Wanted to get a lot done!
Card 4, Smile! LOVE this one!
Card 5, same sentiment about pajamas
Card 6
Card 7
Card 8

So, I made 20 cards, multiples of the ones above. I am NOT a ‘go quick’ crafting kind of girl! But, this was eye opening for me!! Not only are these beautiful, but I got them done and out in 1 day! THAT is unheard of for me! I also used the Spread Sunshine pdf available here, that you can download, print out and make your own cards! ALL proceeds go to helping with Covid 19!

Below you can see the supplies used in picture form. to get the measurements for the cards see the first picture. The only thing I added was a piece of Old Olive at 5 1/4″ x 4″. Do a card without layers?! Not me! My eyes are wide open, and know this about myself. But I really love how these came out, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by, give this a try!!

Ornate Garden Quilt Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card where I have used the Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper (DSP), cutting it up with Square dies to make a Quilt card! Also included in the Quilt part is Gold Foil!

Hard to see, but I have ruffled ribbon on the bottom of the focal piece.

Starting out, I cut the Ornate Garden DSP and Gold Foil using the Stitched Shapes Dies (Squares). Then, I cut each square in half, lay them opposite each other until I had a pattern that made me happy. Once I had that done, I cut a piece of Whisper White to fit under and glued them into the desired Quilt shape I wanted. There are so many ways to manipulate the squares, but this is the way I liked it the most.

For the border on the top and bottom, I used the Ornate Borders Dies also using the Gold Foil. But first, I layered the quilt pattern onto Old Olive, to make it pop! Once I had all that done, I used some Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon along the bottom and ‘scalloped’ it so it had a ruffled edge. This turned out so pretty!! It’s very subtle in the picture but in real life it stands out!

After more white cardstock and Gold Foil, my Quilt card is almost done! I needed a sentiment to add to the front so I used ‘my friend’ from the Stamp set Ornate Thanks from Stampin’ Up! NOT sure if you have noticed by now but I LOVE SU! This company has added so much fun/creativity and Friends to my life, not sure what I would do if I didn’t have Stampin’ Up! in my life!

Of course I had to top off my card with some bling! I chose Gilded Gems to add that final touch. So? What do you think? Could it be for a wedding, birthday, pick me up or all of the above!?

As usual, here are all the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Ornate Thanks

Inks:
Versamark

Paper:
Whisper White Thick 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White 5 1/8″ x 3 3/4″, 4 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ (for under Quilt)
Gold Foil 5 1/4″ x 4″, 5″ x 3/4″ (x2) for border, scraps for squares
Ornate Garden DSP scraps for squares

Misc:
Ornate Borders Dies
Ornate Frames Dies
Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (white)
Gilded Gems
Dimensionals
Gold Embossing Powder
Embossing Buddy
Heat tool
Subtle 3D Folder
