Card Folds

Awesome Swaps from our Team Meeting

I want to share a few of the swaps that members of my team made for our #1 Stampers Meeting Swap. The theme for this swap was unique folds. The girls came up with some great designs, as you will see.

The photo quality isnt the best. I took the pictures in a hurry, before they were swapped out. But they are still pretty awesome.

Here's the first one, made by Sue Brennan

Bonus Card- Cool Treats

This was the Bonus Card at my most recent Card Class last week. Its so colorful and fun, with lots and lots of embellishments.

I'm pretty sure this was everyone's favorite card of the night and almost everyone had to purchase the stamp set and/or all the matching Tasty Treat accessories!

This is one of my absolute favorite stamp sets in the Occasions catalog. I got this card idea and layout from Patty Bennett. She shared it on Instagram and I immediately had to make it!

What do you think? Do you like it as much as we all do? There's a lot going on, like sprinkles and washi and designer paper, but its all so fun and super colorful!

Here's the inside... To make this fold, I cut a piece of whisper white at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" then folded it in half and cut 1" off the front flap of the card. Super easy. The banner is a 2" piece of pool party cardstock and I used the Triple Banner punch to make the "tail."

Here's a close up of all the details. I love all the special embellishments that coordinate with the Cool Treats stamp set! The detail on the cone as well as the ice cream scoops were made with the coordinating, Frozen Treats dies.

I hope you enjoyed this fun, colorful, textured, amazingly embellished ice cream card. I thank Patty for the inspiration as well!

I appreciate you stopping by today.

Until the next time...

Creative Card Fold : Dutch Door Fold- using the Carousel Birthday set

I have a fun card fold to share with you today. I was visiting my friend Linda Bauwin, in Ohio a few weeks ago and I saw this fun and simple fold she had done on one of her class cards. I was surprised at how easy it was to make. Linda always has great card fold ideas and I always love visiting with her to see all of her fun creations.

So, I had create a Dutch Door card fold of my own. I thought the Carousel Birthday stamp set would work perfectly for this card idea.

Plus, I had to create a card for a swap that I host with other demonstrators across the country that have served on the Stampin' Up Advisory Board. These girls are top notch, so I wanted to share something that they could easily use in their own classes and workshops.

The bottom of the card opens like a "dutch door." How clever is that? I used all the coordinating accessories from the Carousel Birthday suite. The Cupcakes and Carousel designer paper is so perfect for this carnival card. I love how the Layering Oval framlits work together. I used both the smooth edge and scallop edge ovals for this card. There are 15 ovals in the set, so there are lots to choose from!

Here's what it looks like on the inside.

I think it came together really well. I love all the fun colors in this suite.

Here's a few more samples... same card, different patterns from the Cupcakes and Carousel designer paper.
