Stampin’ Up! Book Fold w/ Easel

Hello Sunday! Oh golly – our out of state family arrives today!!! So excited, ‘cuz it’s been a while. I’ve pulled out more DSP to share – from Awash in Beauty and more Hues of Happiness. And I’ve used them on a book fold with an easel. Such a fun and easy fold to do. Plus it adds a special touch with the easel. :O)

Book Fold Easel Card.1

Photo 1 shows the card flat. Photo 2 shows the card w/ the easel. What makes it a book fold is the left part that is adhered together (see the panel?). The easel is the ‘stand-uppy’ part. :O)

Book Fold Easel Card.2

How fun is that??? I like to cut all my pieces and add them to the layering card stock, then add to the card base. So, cut the Awash in Beauty 12 x 12 DSP for the card front and adhere to the Polished Pink layer. The card base is Thick Basic White, scored at 5 1/2 then scored again at 6 3/4. Turn the card and score the right panel from corner to corner diagonally. Burnish the score lines: the 6 3/4 becomes a valley and the diagonal score becomes a mountain – as you see in photo 2. What makes it a book fold is adhering the narrow strip to itself (from the 5 1/2 to the 6 3/4 – that 1 1/4 area is adhered to the back of the card base. Now adhere the Polished Pink panels to the coordinating panels on the card base. (all card cuts are listed at the bottom of this post BTW.) With the Blossoming Happiness Dies and the Hues of Happiness 12 x 12 DSP, die cut leaves and the large rose and small rose for the inside. The Happiness Abounds Bundle (10% less when purchased as a bundle) coordinates with the Hues of Happiness DSP – intentionally, for this very purpose. It makes it so easy to add dimension and loveliness to a card. I fussy cut the blue flowers from Awash in Beauty DSP, adhered it to the back of the large rose, keeping in mind, the fold. I did the same with the die cut leaves – added them with liquid glue to the back of the rose. The rose got dimensionals just where it would attach to the easel fold, primarily the bottom half of the rose, then added it to the easel. VOILA!

The inside is quick… adhere the Basic White panel to the Polished Pink piece, then to the inside of the card. The Rose, die cut from Hues of Happiness DSP, is attached with a couple of dimensionals so it’s raised a bit and holds the fold in place. The final touch was adding three Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels to the card: flower center + two more just to the left of the rose. Easy peasy, right?! Here’s another show of the easel fold.

Book Fold Easel Card.4

Ok, envelope… I embossed a Polished Pink panel with the super fun Stripes & Splatters 3D embossing folder and adhered it to the flap. Of course – I used the Splatters, as you can see. And for the envelope front, a fussy cut flower from the Awash in Beauty DSP adhered with liquid glue.

Stampin’ Up! True Beauty is here!

Hi folks – Friday I received another package from SU! – more bundles from the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog! YAY! I decided to play with the True Beauty bundle – why I didn’t get this first off, I have no idea.

L-O-V-E… One of my favorites is the lattice die – oh my goodness… so delicate and beautiful. Here’s my card.

True Beauty.1

I’ve used several SU! products to make this card – and it’s all worth it (at least to me): Thick Basic White for the card base with a layer of Awash In Beauty 12 x 12 DSP adhered directly.; Lovely Layers Vellum just slightly smaller came next and was attached with Stampin’ Seal in the middle where I wanted to place the circle.; the lattice was die cut from Basic White using one of the dies in the True Beauty Bundle (Organic Beauty Dies). I added it with dabs of liquid glue around the edges and some in the cross places. The next layer is a circle cut with the largest of the Layering Circles Dies from a Basic White piece, then run through the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder for … you know, more texture :O) I stamped the flower itself using Sweet Sorbet ink stamped off once or twice then die cut with the Organic Beauty Dies. The leaves were stamped on Basic White and die cut with the Organic Beauty Dies.Both were adhered over the circle with dimensionals. I used a sentiment from the True Beauty stamp set and stamped in Memento ink, die cut with the Beautiful Shapes Dies. You KNOW this coordinates with Hello Beautiful stamp set, right??? This also was added with dimensionals. I tied a double bow with the Metallic Woven Ribbon in Parakeet Party and adhered it with a glue dot. If the bow wasn’t enough for glam, I added three Iridescent Rhinestones Basic Jewels. And the card front was done…

True Beauty 1, inside

For the inside, I stamped this wonderful design in Pear Pizzazz ink on yet another Basic White piece. I wanted a bit more texture so scored two lines on the left side, avoiding the stamped design. What do you think? Like it? I adhered this panel to the inside with liquid glue.

True Beauty 1. 3

Envelope… Some of the same Awash In Beauty 12 x 12 DSP on the flap. For the front, another of the same stamp in Pear Pizzazz ink as the same as inside the card.

Love the femininity of this card – and the colors too. This bundle is quickly becoming a favorite. Hope you like!

Stampin’ Up! Congrats with Happiness Abounds

It’s Saturday! What this means for us is… we rehearse with the orchestra this morning for our patriotic concert tomorrow afternoon. Oh so excited! Having an orchestra just adds so much to the music. Sometimes I want to just listen to them and I forget we’re supposed to come in 😦 So, what are your plans for the day? I hope it’s something you enjoy – such as playing in your craft room, or getting together with a couple of friends to do something fun together. For now, let me show you this latest card.

Congrats w/ Happiness Abounds.1

This is some of the new Designer Series Paper called Textile Chic Specialty Paper. It’s gorgeous! Rather modern looking. Interesting color combos. Because of the fun shapes on the paper I also used the fabulous Beautiful Shapes Dies to add more pattern. Fun, right? The sentiment of course, is from the Happiness Abounds stamp set and I embossed that in gold. And then – the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots add a shiny touch. Here’s the scoop…

  • Card base is Thick Basic White: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4
  • Texture Chic Specialty DSP: 4 x 5 1/4; 2 x a bit more than 3 1/2 (create banner tip); 3/4 x 4 + banner tip
  • Pool Party: 2 1/4 x 3 3/4 + scraps
  • Basic White: 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 (for sentiment panel on front); 4 x 5 1/4

This card is so quick and easy to create: the Texture Chic Specialty Paper is adhered directly to the card base with liquid glue. Next layer is the Pool Party Panel adhered directly, then the Texture Chic Specialty banner also adhered directly. I used an embossing buddy to clear the Basic White piece of any static, stamped the sentiment from Happiness Abounds in VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder and heat set with the Heat Tool. I die cut the piece with the second largest of this hexagon shape die from the Beautiful Shapes Dies and adhered it with dimensionals. I die cut the additional pieces from Pool Party scraps using more of the Beautiful Shapes Dies. Some were adhered with liquid glue and the rest with dimensionals. The final touch was the Brushed Metallic Adhesive-Backed Dots and the card front was done.

Congrats w/ Happiness Abounds.inside

On the Basic White panel I stamped the sentiment in Memento ink from the Happiness Abounds stamp set. I added the banner tip which I had saved 😏 with liquid glue underneath. And finally I added a 3/4″ strip of the Texture Chic Specialty Paper at the bottom. Finis!

Congrats w/ Happiness Abounds.3

For the envelope, more of the Texture Chic Specialty Paper for the flap and that was it. Now let me tell you… a friend had asked for a card to be given to a family moving, purchasing their first home. I didn’t have anything like that on hand – that’s a pretty specific need. So I began looking at sentiments and thought – I like this! My inspiration for the card layout came from page 98 of the new 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. Do you have one of those yet? If not, and you do not have a demonstrator, I would be glad to send you one.
