Stampin Up Colorful Seasons Z Card Fold

I've got another triple Z fold card to share with you today. I posted one last week made with a birthday stamp set, and today I'm using the Colorful Seasons Bundle to make a fall card.

I used the beautiful leaves from the Colorful Seasons stamp set. This stamp set is a two step stamp set- which means the stamps are layered on top of each other in different colors to create shading and dimension.

If you'd like the measurements and a quick tutorial on how to make this fold- refer back to the card from last week - click here

 A tip when stamping the large leaves- stamp the outline image first and then the solid image. I used pumpkin pie, rich razzleberry and pear pizzaz inks on this card.

I added some fun embellishments too! Gold faceted gems, enamel shapes and gold metallic shapes.

 I wanted to give the card the look of tree bark, so I added the Pinewood Plank emboss folder to add some detailed woodgrain dimesion to the top flap of the card. I love how it turned out.

Its officially fall and I think this card is a perfect greeting for the season.

Happy Fall y'all and thanks for stopping by!

Until the next time...

How to Card Fold Tutorial : Triple Z Fold with Happiest of Days Birthday Stamp Set

I spent most of the weekend cleaning and organizing my stamp room. What a huge job that was! I am so happy to have that finished and behind me now.

So, this morning, I couldn't wait to get into my stamp room and play. I wanted to try a card fold that I haven't done before. I decided on a birthday set, called Happiest of Days to be the focal point of this unique Triple Z card fold.

I started with a 4 1/4" x 11 piece of flirty flamingo as the card base. It is folded in half and the front flap is folded in half again so that the bottom edge is touching the top fold of the card. (or you can score the front flap at 2 3/4")

The inside/outside scored piece of basic grey is cut 9" x 3 1/4"

The whisper white pieces are 2 3/4" x 3"

I scored the basic grey at 3" and 6"

To add color and shimmer to the flowers, I used a Wink of Stella brush in clear and dipped it into drops in ink refills (or you can press the lid of your inkpad into the actual inkpad itself to pick up some color on the lid and dip your brush into it)

I used flirty flamingo and melon mambo for the flower and wild wasabi for the leaves.

I love the soft shimmer that the Wink of Stella clear brush gives the flowers and leaves.

When attaching the basic grey cardstock to the flirty flamingo card base, I centered it on the card so that there was about 

1 1/4" inches left at the top and the bottom of the flirty flamingo basecard. Here's a side view.

The top flap is embossed with the Layered Leaves embossing folder. Its looks perfect on this soft and pretty birthday card.

I finished it off with a few rhinestone jewels, enamel shapes and Smoky Slate Gingham Ribbon.

I hope you'll give this unique fold a try. Thanks for stopping by!

Daisy Delight - Super Colorful and Fun

This card that I am sharing today was made with the Daisy Delight bundle. The bundle comes with the stamp set and the coordinating Daisy Punch. One thing that I want to mention is that only the stamp set is available right now. The Bundle and the Punch will be available on June 26th.

This is a great set to play around with. And it looks great in any color that you pair it with. I decided to go with melon mambo, calypso coral and lemon lime twist. I love bright colors, so this was so fun to create and it makes me happy to use all these super colorful inks and cardstocks.

IMG_5400

On this card, I used the Stampin white chalk marker to make stitched lines around the basic black cardstock. Makes it pop a little bit.

IMG_5406

Here's a close up of the detail- the black metallic thread and the new Clear Fauceted Gems. I also used the Brushstrokes background stamp in Lemon Lime Twist ink. I am a big fan of background stamps and I own every one that we carrry!

IMG_5404

This stamp set has so many darling images, I had to try to use them all. So, of course I added some fun stamping on the inside of the card. As you can see I used the basic black cardstock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 as the base of the card and used the whisper white (10 1/2 x 4) as the actual card. Kind of a neat variation to the basic card.

IMG_5407

This one I used the basic black bakers twine instead of the black metallic thread, behind the flower image.

IMG_5403

Here's the whole fabulous bunch. The brighter the colors, the happier it makes me!

Wood Words Variation

I have a quick post on a simple variation of the Wood Words stamp set that I used on my previous blog post. I used the same card fold and colors as well as the same two stamp sets, Wood Words and Label Me Pretty.

I only changed a few things to make this card look a little different.

IMG_5435

I added the beautiful cluster of flowers from the Wood Words set in crumb cake ink and I also used the new Wood Textures designer paper stack.

IMG_5436

The same simple Z fold- you can check out the blog post previous to this one for the measurements and tips.

IMG_5437

I also used very vanilla cardstock on the inside of this one.

IMG_5434

Thought I'd share this one with you, as you can basically use all the same supplies.

I just received my box full of more new Stampin Up stamps and accessories, so I will be playing with my goodies tonight.

Stay tuned for some new creations coming soon!

Thanks again for stopping by.

Until the next time...

Rooster Note from the Wood Words stamp set

The card I am sharing today is a simple Z fold card made with the Wood Words stamp set. I think this set should be called Farm Fresh, because its all the things that we would see on a farm, including a rooster!

I wanted the card to look very rustic and earthy. So, I used the colors, early espresso, crumb cake, cherry cobbler and whisper white.

IMG_5310

 The Z fold on this card is very simple and easy. I folded the card base (11" x 4 1/4") in half, then I simply folded the front flap of the card up to meet the fold on top.

IMG_5313

The Hardwood background stamp was used to give the card that rustic bark look. I also used the new Label Me Pretty stamp set along with the Pretty Label Punch to give this card an interesting element on the flap.

IMG_5312

A little bit of burlap ribbon adds to the perfect rustic farm look.

IMG_5311

I also used the Stitched Shapes framelits in the oval shape on the early espresso cardstock. This pulls the card together quite nicely.

IMG_5314

Got to love a card with a cherry cobbler rooster on it, for sure :)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Until the next time...

It's Here!! The New Stampin' Up! Catalog debuts today!

It's such an exciting day in the stampin' world today. The release of the Stampin' Up! 2017-2018 Annual Catalog!

Ordering starts at 2:00 PM EST today. So get your wish lists ready! I've got mine ready to go and I cannot wait to get more of the new stamps and amazing accessories in my hands.

In honor of the new catalog release, I have a special creative card to share with you today. The stamp set that I used is called "Crafting Forever."

This is the perfect set for me, and all of you stampers and crafters out there as well. I made this card using the Dutch Door Fold. If you missed the video on this fold, last month, I will attach it again, at the end of this post.

IMG_4425

I received this stamp set at the On Stage Event in April. All Stampin' Up! Leaders received this as a special gift. I actually made this card way back in April, so I'm very excited to share it today.

IMG_4426

I used watercolor paper and stamped the image in basic black archival ink. I colored it in with an aqua painter and squeezed the lids of the inkpads into the actual pad and used the ink that was deposited in the lid to color with. Check out the new Glitter Dots- they are gorgeous!

IMG_4424

The designer series paper is from the "Birthday Memories" 12 x 12 pack.

I think my new favorite "in color" is the Lemon Lime Twist, which I used here for the card, scallop oval and the color of the pot.

Here's a view of the Dutch Door Fold.

IMG_4423

And the inside...gotta love that sentiment :)

As I mentioned, the video for this fold is attached below.
