Card Folds

How To: Card Fold with Stampin Up's Broadway Birthday Stamp Set

I made this super sparkly, bright, happy birthday card for a card swap that I host with other Stampin Up Demonstrators all over the country IMG_3141

I love this vintage style, cool and funky stamp set. This set has coordinating dies called Broadway Lights that work so perfectly for that marque look.

This card has a unique fold in front. Its super easy too!

 I used the Broadway Bound designer paper as well as basic black, lovely lipstick, lemon lime twist, gold foil and gold glimmer paper. I stamped the greeting in granny apple green. I used the Birthday Backgrounds stamp set and stamped it onto the lovely lipstick cardstock in the same color ink for a tone on tone look.

I have a full list of supplies listed below for you.

IMG_3144

Here's a peek at the inside. I used the candles from the Broadway Birthday set as well.

IMG_3142

For the card I used a basic black card size 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 when folded. ( the size before folding in half is 4 1/4 x 11.  I then took the top right corner and folded it down to evenly line up with the bottom of the card.

Open it back up and apply adhesive really well so that the flap stays down.

I used the Layering Circle Framelits for the scallop circle as well as the lovely lipstick circle and attached them on the front flap.

For the sizes of the designer paper: the polka dot is cut a 4 x 1" and for the stripes I took a piece cut at 4x4. Next line the opposite points up on the cutting line of your Stampin Trimmer and cut - you will have 2 triangles. Save one for another card. :)

Heres a whole bunch of them!

All kinds of fun patterns in the Broadway Bound designer paper pack!

So super shiny and sparkly. I liked it so much that I even made one for my bff for her birthday.

IMG_3152

This was a lot of glimmer and glitz going into my mailbox!

I hope you enjoyed the quick tutorial - you should give it a try. I'm pretty sure that we will be making this one at my next card class too!

Stampin' Up Barn Door Stamps and Dies

I have some fun cards to share with you today, made with the new Stampin' Up Barn Door Bundle.

Its such a fun set to play with. I've created 3 different designs and one of them we will make at Card Class this week. Yay!

The first card is also made with the " This Little Piggy" stamp set. I thought it would be fun to put the piggy in the barn. It works perfectly with this set. I will post a Stampin' Up video below, showing just how to make a barn door card with the Barn Door Bundle. So scroll to the bottom of this post to see it.

The cardstock that I used is whisper white and basic black and also the Woodgrain Designer Series paper. The inks are smoky slate, crumb cake, pink pirouette, and the memento black pad.

IMG_0714

I colored in the pig with the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I used both the smoky slate and pink pirouette sets of markers.

If you watch the video below, you will also get a list of the "behind the scenes" items that were used to put this card together. I will also post the supply list below.

IMG_0715

I used the Stampin Write water based markers to color directly on the wreath stamp in crumb cake, pink pirouette and basic black.

How cool is this? The door slides back and forth to reveal the message. The whisper white piece that has the pig/message stamped on it is 41/4" x 2 1/2". The card base is 5 1/2 x 4 1/4.  The door is cut out with a framelit from the barn door set.

IMG_0716

IMG_0719

This is the card that we will be making at Card Class this week:

IMG_0710

I hope the card class girls like it!

IMG_0709

The colors are whisper white, crumb cake and basic black- same for the inks as well as cherry cobbler. I also used the Hardwood Background stamp for the card base. Same measurements as above.

IMG_0713

I colored the wreath, the same way as above... using the early espresso and cherry cobbler Stampin' Write markers.

IMG_0707

IMG_0712

It's so fun to slide the door back and forth!

IMG_0708

Here are both cards:

IMG_0720

And slide...

IMG_0721

One last quick card that I made while I had extra pieces to use up...

IMG_E0802

The inks on the sign, greeting and flowers are dapper denim, calyso coral and marina mist.

Valentine with a fun Surprise inside

Another valentine card made and ready to be given to someone sweet. I used the Heart Happiness stamp set and coordinating Sweet and Sassy framelits. Because, as you know, I LOVE Valentines and hearts and pretty paper!

I only used one ink pad on this card- calypso coral. It looks like the heart has more than one color, but that is because of the unique carving of this beautiful stamp.

IMG_2648

The cardstock used is whisper white, pink pirouette and melon mambo. I also used the gorgeous Painted with Love designer paper and Gold Glimmer paper.

IMG_2644

I used the new gold tinsel trim to make a bow and attached an Enamel Glitter Dot over the knot in the ribbon.

IMG_2649

So, do you want to see what's inside?

IMG_2645

A cute little "pop up" heart <3

I can't get enough of this beautiful designer paper..

The verse is borrowed from the Painted Palette stamp set.

I hope you are having fun making your valentines for next month.

Valentine Card in 3-D

I'm going to share a pretty simple Valentine, (love, wedding or anniversary) card with you today. There's not much stamping going on, just some simple die cuts and folds.

I used the Sweet and Sassy heart framelit dies, the Diagonal Stripe Background stamp, berry burst metalic edge ribbon, sweet sugarplum cardstock, powder pink cardstock and rich razzleberry ink for this 3 dimensional valentine.

IMG_2672

This is the card from the top, looking down on it.

IMG_2674

And here it is from the side.

IMG_2673

I cut 8 of the largest hearts in the Sweet and Sassy framelit set. And then scored them down the middle with the Simply Scored tool. This photo shows 3 of the 8 hearts.

IMG_2650

Next, I attached them back to back on only one side of the heart.

IMG_2651

I did this with all 8 hearts.

IMG_2653

The back will end up like this. This will be what you will adhere to the card. NOTE: the hearts in these photos are smaller than the hearts on the card. But still the same technique was used.

IMG_2654

This is what the front of all the hearts looks like, once you have all 8 attached to each other.

IMG_2655

After you attach the 3 D heart to the front of the card- fluff it out. The hearts actually lay flat inside an envelope and pop up once taken out of the envelope, so its easy to send in the mail!

IMG_2672

I hope you give this 3 D pop up a try. It really is simple, but packs a punch!

Thanks for visiting today.

Until the next time...

Fun Fold - Gift Card Holder

I used the super cute, Smitten Mitten set to make this awesome gift card holder for Christmas.

The small mittens hold the flap closed and when opened, it exposes the little pocket inside to hold a special gift card.

I used the Christmas Quilt designer paper from the Stampin Up Holiday Catalog as well as a touch of red glimmer paper to make the gift card holder sparkle.

IMG_1965

The card is 4 1/4" x 11. I scored the card at 4 1/4" then 9 3/4". The bottom flap folds up and I attached the two die cut mittens with mini dimensionals. The top flap tucks in under the mittens to hold the card closed.

Here's the inside. I used tear tape on the far edges of the bottom flap, so that a gift card can be easily tucked inside.

IMG_1966

Did you notice the red rhinestone gems? I colored our basic rhinestone with the Stampin' Blends cherry cobbler marker. These markers are permanent and can be used on non porous surfaces. SO cool!

IMG_1967

We made this card at this months Card Class and the ladies loved it!

You should give it a try!

Until the next time...

My Talented Team and their Fabulous Swaps and 3-D Creations

I want to share my teams swaps from our Christmas Party with you. The theme was gift packaging. Some of the girls made boxes and others did gift card holders. They were all very cute!

This adorable little gift box was made by Sue Brennan. She used the "Bella and Friends" stamp set to decorate the front of the box.

IMG_E2085

This gift card holder was made by Tauni Caylor- its got a little surprise inside... wait for it...

IMG_E2089

Birthday packages that I made with the new Silver Gable boxes from the upcoming Occasions Catalog 2018.

IMG_2019

This is the coolest gift card holder... Its a "zipper card" made by Lori Wiest. Pull the tab and it unzips the card to reveal a gift card inside. I don't have instructions, but I'm sure it can be "googled."
