SU! Guilded Autumn Specialty DSP, Double Z Fold

Hello… Today is Fun Fold Friday – at least for today anyway. Fun Folds can be complicated or easy, This one is pretty easy: it’s as though you are creating two cards, one smaller, and putting together. Let’s take a look…

 

Guilded Autumn Specialty DSP, Double z Fold #1

Is that fun or what? And beautiful? SU! has done it again with their gorgeous coordinating papers. These papers come from the Guilded Autumn Specialty DSP pack in the August ~ December 2020 Mini Catalog. If you want to know how to get your pack of these papers, contact me and we’ll connect!

Now let’s talk about how to put this card together:

  • Crumb Cake  is our card base 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4 on the long side; cut another piece for the smaller portion 3 3/4 x 6 1/4, score at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4 along the long side
  • Cut Early Espresso (2) 2 x 5 3/8  and 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 for the card base; for the smaller card cut Early Espresso (3) 1 7/8 x 3 5/8
  • Cut Specialty DSP (2) 1 7/8 x 5 1/4, 4 x 5 1/4; for the smaller card cut Specialty DSP (2) 1 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Cut Very Vanilla 1 3/4 x 3 1/2
  • Stamp the sentiment on Very Vanilla using Early Espresso ink ~ mine is from Path of Petals stamp set
  • Adhere all Specialty DSP to the appropriate size Early Espresso.
  • Adhere these panels to their respective card bases, including the Very Vanilla sentiment panel
  • Adhere these to their respective card bases EXCEPT THE LARGEST PANEL.
  • Wrap a ribbon around the right edge of this largest panel and tie as knot. Adhere in back with glue dots and also under the knot. My ribbon is from the Guilded Autumn Suite and it is called Mint Macaron 1/2″ Basketweave Ribbon. It comes in a combo pack called the Basketweave Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack. Gorgeous! Now adhere this large panel into your card base.

Now it is time to adhere the two cards together.. I find it helpful to use my grid paper for placement.. This NOT difficult… place the smaller card in the center of the larger panel and adhere with liquid glue. TIP: I find it helpful to use my grid paper for centering.

Now close the card with the smaller, loose card flap coming over the top of the base card. Keeping the base card closed, adhere the loose panel with liquid glue. Bingo…

I used my Oval Dies to cut a scalloped oval out of Early espresso. Stamp the appropriate sentiment in Early Espresso ink on a panel of Very vanilla (mine is from Good Morning Magnolia stamp set) then die cut with another plain Oval Die. Adhere together with liquid glue. Put dimensionals on the back and attach to the small front card. YAY! Your card is complete and wonderful and ready to send. Mine is going to a family that I have worked with over the last 30 plus years that has done printing for me. The woman died after a very short illness. UGH! Loss is so hard, especially during these physically distant times….

Anyway, back to the card…  for the envelope I adhered a strip of Early Espresso then the additional Specialty DSP to the envelope flap and nothing else. I hope you try making this fun fold. I like all the layering… it adds a ton of elegance to the card.

SU! Daisy Lane, Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper

Hello again… can you believe it is Thursday already? My goodness this week has flown ~ at least for me. Today’s card is full of bright colors and just says ‘happy” all over it. I’m excited no share it with you… it uses some products from last years catalog and some from this years 2020-2021 Annual Catalog.

Daisy Lane stamp set
Large and Medium Daisy Punch
Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper and 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP
#1

Bright, cheerful, it is just F-U-N. Created on the Note Cards/ Envelopes pack, this card is smaller than a regular size card. Finished it measures 3 1/2 x 5, a perfect size.

  • Layer Magenta Madness 3 3/8 x 4 7/8 onto the note card front
  • Layer the Magenta Madness 2020-2022 In Color 6×6 DSP 3 1/4 x 4 3/4
  • Layer one of the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty DSP, but on the white side. Adhere with Stampin Seal
  • Stamp two large daisies with Bumblebee from the Daisy Lane stamp set and punch with the large daisy punch.
  • Do the same with the Medium daisy: stamp 2 in Bumblebee, punch 2
  • Gently curl the petals with a bone folder, going up
  • Adhere together with liquid glue
  • Adhere to the Forever Gold Laser-
  • Cut Specialty Paper with two glue dots. Put Basic Pearls in the center ~ I used five
  • Tie a bow using the 1/4″ Gingham Ribbon in Bumblebee and adhere with a glue dot. Your card front is complete.

The best part about this card is that the inside could be absolutely anything you wanted it to be: get well, thinking of you, you got this, just about anything. Since a shower card was requested, that’s what I did… made it a shower card.

Cute, right?

  • Stamp the umbrella in Magenta Madness.
  • Stamp the flowers in Bumblebee
  • Now go back and stamp the sentiment

SU! Gilded Autumn Suite

Hi Everyone – so excited to share today’s card. It is hot as blazes here on the East coast and just thinking fall makes me feel cooler… so here ya go…

Autumn Greetings stamp set
Autumn Punch Pack
#1

SU! does such a great job of coordinating and this product line is no exception. The Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP is gorgeous AND there are a couple of papers in that pack that have these fun images of leaves and acorns. I used the Autumn Punch Pack to punch out a bunch of them. I also used a die set from last years catalog that is still available called Gathered Leaves Dies. They were used to die cut three leaves out of Mint Macaron that forms the beginning point of my wreath.

I’ll back up just a bit… Whisper White cs 4 x 5 1/4; die cut a circle with the Circle framelits (I used second to largest). This is your basis for the wreath! While I didn’t do it this time, I would suggest running this panel through the Subtle embossing folder to create a wonderful textured background. Then simply begin layering, beginning with those three die cut leaves. I used liquid glue to adhere all these, curling each one a bit as I went along. Once I completed the wreath, I made a fun bow with Linen Thread and attached that very sweet Acorn Trinket from the suite.  Next I took a piece of the Gilded Autumn Specialty DSP and cut it to fit behind the open circle. I stamped the sentiment in Early Espresso using the Autumn Greeting stamp set and adhered that panel with liquid glue. This was glued to a piece of Early espresso 4 1/8 x 5 3/8, then adhered to the Terracotta Tile card front (4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2). I adhered two Early Espresso strips to the card front and trimmed the ends. These were simply in my stash.

For the inside, I took a 3 3/4 x 5 panel of Whisper White and Mint Macaron ink to stamp the sweet leaves from the Autumn Greetings stamp set. This was adhered to another panel of Early Espresso cs 4 x 5 1/4 and glued in place to complete the card.

The envelope got the same treatment of leaves for the card front and the flap got special detail. I ran the Early Espresso 2 1/4 x 6 through the Greenery embossing folder, glued in place on the flap and trimmed it to fit. Voila! Obviously I’m not mailing this one just yet… out of season. But it’s ready to send to someone special.

I couldn’t help myself – got working and made 4 cards! I wanted to do a One Sheet Wonder with  6×6 paper, so the ‘Tis the Season 6×6 DSP in this suite was perfect for that. Here are the four cards…

Wonder of the Season Suite

Here are the measurements I used for the One Sheet Wonder:

  • 1 1/2 x 5 1/2
  • 3 x 3
  • 3 x 1 (three of these cut directly under the 3 x 3)
  • that leaves a strip 1 1/2 wide… make four 1 1/2″ squares ~ bingo, four cards!

Card #1

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies #1

I used the 3 x 1 strips adhered to a panel of Cherry Cobbler 3 1/4 x 3 1/2. Additional papers used were Garden Green and Shaded Spruce for the pines, Gold foil for the stag, 3/4″ x about 5″ Cherry Cobbler for the sentiment banner (the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch was used after heat embossing the sentiment), Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack using the Gold trim, and let’s see, Cherry Cobbler ink for the circle element. This stag is stunning!

Card #2

Cherish The Season stamp set
Sounds of the Season Dies
#2

For this card, the obvious is the 1 1/2″ x 5″ strip adhered to Cherry Cobbler 1 5/8″ x 5 1/2″. The pines were stamped in Garden Green, bells die cut rom Gold Foil sheet, pine die cuts from Shaded Spruce, ribbon is Real Red Sheer 3/8″ and finally Red Rhinestone Gems. I think this is my favorite card of the four – love those bells!

Card #3

Wishes & Wonder stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies
#3

This ribbon makes the most awesome bows! It is part of the Suite – Ribbon Combo Pack in Shaded Spruce; it’s called Argyle Stain Ribbon. Cherry Cobbler is cut 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, also the banner under the sleigh is 3/4″ by probably 4 1/2″ before using the new Banners Pick A Punch to trim the ends. The sleigh is stamped in Cherry Cobbler and I added Wonderful Gems in Real Red. Also is the Gold 1/8″ cord from the same Ribbon Combo Pack. I wanted it to look like reins!

Card #4

Wonder * Wishes stamp set
North Pole Wonder Dies
stag from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack
#4

This card uses the four  1 1/2″ squares, more of the 1″ Argyle Satin Ribbon, stamped circle using Cherry Cobbler ink and the North Pole Wonder Dies to cut out. The stag is a sticker – yes, a sticker… from the Wonder of The Season Memories & More Card Pack. The background is a Whisper White panel run through the Tasteful Textile embossing folder. I really like this embossing folder!

SU! Boho Indigo Product Medley Spanner Card

Hello… Happy Fourth!!! Woohoo… We are so used to being ‘out and about’ for  this holiday, attending a picnic or two – with the pandemic life is very different… Enjoy your day whatever you are doing. Go0d Bless America… Now, on to the card for today…

I was on Pinterest the other day and found this fun idea for a card and of course I HAD to try it myself… it’s called a spanner card. I rather like a good challenge, something new ~ here is what I created using the Boho Indigo Product Medley

Boho Indigo Product Medley
Spanner Card
#1

It was fairly easy but did take several steps to make. Let’s get started in the telling…

Begin with an 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Misty Moonlight cs, scored at 4 1/4. Using your paper trimmer, cut the front panel on each side 1 1/4″  from the edge TO THE SCORE LINE.  Cut a piece of window sheet 1 1/4″ x 3 1/2 and adhere to the card front at the bottom. (I used Tear n Tape for the window sheet) This creates the ‘span’ to hold the two front panels together 😏. Cut 2 panels of Very Vanilla 1 1/8 x 4 1/8 and one.panel 1 1/4 x 3 1/8. Cut panels of Boho Indigo cs: 2 at 1 x 4 and 2 at 1 x 3. Adhere the Very Vanilla to the side front panels and one covering the window sheet. Then adhere the Boho Indigo panels over these. Do not adhere the the last 1x 3 Boho Indigo strip yet.

This product medley has these fabulous green leaves and I adhered three of these to the card front. The largest was attached with a glue dot, the palm leaf is on dimensionals and the smallest frond is adhered to the window sheet ON THE BACK SIDE OF THE CARD FRONT.  This creates wonderful dimension. Now cover the back side of the window sheet with that last 1 x 3 strip. Here’s what it looks like from the inside…

Boho Indigo Product Medley

#2

The only thing left to do for the front is the sentiment banner. Cut a 3/4 x about 2 1/2 strip of Very Vanilla. Trim one end by using the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Stamp the sentiment in Garden green from the Bloom and Grow stamp set. Add Gilded Gems from the Ornate Garden Suite of products. Put dimensionals on the back and adhere to the card front.

For the inside… there are two sections really: one is the rest of the card front… cut a panel of the embossed Very Vanilla from the Boho Indigo Product Medley (gorgeous papers!) 3 x 4 1/8 and adhere to that cut front panel. The above picture shows that embossed piece clearly.

Now let’s complete the real inside of the card… cut a Very Vanilla 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere with liquid glue. Cut two strips of the Boho Indigo cs 1 x 3 3/4 and adhere with liquid glue. I added no sentiment as this will be a handwritten card, a friendly uplift to a dear person.

Boho Indigo Product Medley

#3

Your card is now complete. Let’s do the envelope… Cut a panel of the Boho Indigo cs 2 1/4 x 6 and adhere to the flap. Trim to fit. Remember those punch-out leaves from this product medley? I took the punched piece and ‘taped’ around it with post-it notes leaving just the leaf I wanted open, and sponged it with a sponge dauber and Garden Green. Then I took my Light Soft Suede Blends marker and made the lines on the palm leaf. I stamped the hello sentiment from the …. Bloom and Grow stamp set and my envelope was complete. TIP: slip a scrap piece of cs into your envelope when using a blends marker. This keeps it from bleeding through the envelope!

Wasn’t that fun? A new type of card for me and I like it – a spanner card…

SU! Playful Alphabet Dies and Z Fold

Hello… last baby card I promise! Made with the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP and the Playful Alphabet Dies, this is another fun fold card. Here ’tis…

Playful Alphabet Dies
Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP
#1

The card base is Purple Posy 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. Burnish the 5 1/2 as though the card were going flat, then fold back the 2 3/4 scored panel – this makes a z – therefore… ta da… a Z Fold Card. Cut a panel of Coastal Cabana 2 3/8 x 4. Adhere a panel of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP cut to 2 x 3 7/8. Wrap a length of the Silver/ Misty Moonlight ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack three times around and tie in knot. Hold in place on the back with tape. Put dimesnionals on this panel back and set aside.

Adhere Foam Adhesive Sheet strip (about 1 x 2 1/2) to a piece of coordinating DSP then die cut the letters B-O-Y using the Playful Alphabet Dies. Adhere to the card front by simply removing the backing on the Foam Adhesive strip! Now adhere this completed panel to the front of your Z-Fold. Add three 2020-2022 In Color Enamel Dots – these are Just Jade.

For the inside… Coastal Cabana 4 x 5 1/4 then Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5, then add a coordinating strip 1/4″ from right end. Voila! The envelope got the same DSP adhered to the flap. Baby card #5 is done…

SU!Tasteful Labels Dies, Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP

Hello again… baby card #4. So different from the other three and still from the very same DSP! Love this… and this may be my favorite so far…

Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP
Tasteful Labels Dies
#1

I love how this turned out, maybe because it’s bright, cheerful and has several coordinating colors. The base of the card is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2. Cut a panel of Purple Posy 4 x 5 1/4 and run through your die cutting/ embossing folder using the gorgeous and very versatile Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. Adhere with Stampin Seal to the card front. TIP: When adhering embossed panels I find it helpful to use Stampin Seal. I find it covers better somehow and I just prefer the way it holds the panel. 

The next layer is Coastal Cabana 4 1/4 x 3 1/4. Then cut three panels of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP that coordinate and compliment each other. These are cut 1 1/2 x 3, 1 x 3, and 1 1/4 x 3. TIP: Adhere the two end pieces first and the center one last. This allows for perfect centering of all panels. Cut a length of Night of Navy 1/2″ Frayed Grosgrain Ribbon from the Boho Indigo Product Medley. (This gorgeous ribbon – just sayin’) Know where you want the ribbon to end and adhere that section with Stampin Seal. Then wrap the end of the ribbon to the back of the card creating a loop. Adhere to the back with Stampin Seal. I love the way this looks, as though it is creating a banner :O). Put dimensionals on this panel and set aside.

Die cut a circle from Coastal Cabana with the Layering Circles Dies. Die cut another circle using the Tasteful Labels Dies (there is such a collections of cool labels in this die set!) from Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment with Night of Navy from the Best Year stamp set. Adhere this to the Coastal Cabana circle with liquid glue. Add three Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins. Put dimensionals on this circle duo (top and bottom only) and adhere over the ribbon.

Take this Coastal Cabana panel and attach to the card front about 1/2″ from the right edge. Your card front is now complete. Again, the inside is super duper easy: layer Purple Posey 4 x 5 1/4 and Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5; add a strip of coordinating DSP; adhere to the card inside and the card is done. The envelope gets a strip 2 1/4 x 6 adhered to the flap and trimmed. Done, done, done.

Not for nothin’… today, Jul 2, SU! Demonstrators around the world will be ordering from the Aug- Dec Mini Catalog. This used to be called the Holiday catalog but SU! decided to have a longer sales period for this cattie and renamed it. Smart, right? Anyway – I can’t share anything just yet, but will soon! Keep your eyes peeled 😜 for more new stuff!

SU! Playful Alphabet Dies Fun Fold

Hi Y’all… I’m on a roll here with the baby cards AND the Playful Alphabet Dies AND the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. My goal is five cards with papers all from the same stash but totally different style, fold, etc. So far I think I have been successful. Here is today’s card ~ a Gate Fold

Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP
Playful Alphabet Dies
Gaten Fold
#1

After looking at it (again and again!), I think it needs another layer behind the banner ~ may have to do that… For the time being, here’s how this card is made…

Calypso Coral cs cut to 4 1/4 x 11 then scored at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4. Add a layer of Coastal Cabana cs to each front panel, 2 5/8 x 4 1/8. (You could easily make this 2 1/2 x 4). Cut two additional panels, this time in Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. These two panels were each 2 x 4. Adhere, centering, to the side panels. Cut a label using the Tasteful Labels Dies. (Gosh, I use these so much – they are very versatile). With the Playful Alphabet Dies cut the letters B-O-Y from Whisper White and adhere to the label with liquid glue.Adhere the Coastal Cabana label only on the left front panel. Add five Playing with Patterns Resin Dots and your card front is done.

Gatefold

The inside is easy peasy… Coastal Cabana layer 4 x 5 1/4, then Whisper White 3 3/4 x 5. Add a strip of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP that coordinates and bingo, the card is complete!

The envelope…  Simply adhere a 2 14 x 6 panel of the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. Voila! Card #3 in this ‘baby bundle’ for our daughter to give as a gift to the new mother. In case you missed the last two posts, here are photos of those…

SU! Waterfall Card with Playful Alphabet Dies

Hi Everyone! Yesterday I told you my task is to create several baby cards for my daughter’s girlfriend.Today’s card is another to add to that gift set and it uses the Playful Alphabet Dies AND the Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. I did absolutely no stamping on this project but it is a new fun type card I haven’t made before. It’s called a waterfall card ~ here ’tis…

Playful Alphabet Dies
#1

This is pretty easy and I’ll talk you through it then do a very short video of how it works. The card base is Purple Posey 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. Cut Misty Moonlight 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 and adhere to the card front. Cut a panel of Playing with Patterns DSP 4 x 5 1/4 and adhere to the Misty Moonlight. Cut a Misty Moonlight strip 1 1/2 x 8 and score at 1 1/2, 2 1/4, 3, and 3 3/4. Burnish.  Cut four (4) 1 1/2 squares out of Bumblebee cs. Cut three (3)  1 3/8 squares out of coordinating Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. Cut one (1) 1 3/8 square out of Whisper White. With your Playful Alphabet Dies, die cut the letters B-O-Y out of that Whisper White Square.  This was a tight squeeze but it did work. Adhere this Whisper White to one of the yellow squares. From the die cuts, I chose to adhere the letter B, the middle of the O and left the Y to show through. Adhere this panel to the square on the 1 1/2 x 8 strip, JUST UNDER THE FOLD LINE (not on it!).Place a strip of Tear n Tape to the bottom of this panel on the back side of the Misty moonlight. Adhere the next Bumblebee square with Tear n Tape JUST UNDER THE NEXT SCORE LINE.  Continue adhering the last two squares in this same manner.

The purpose of adhering the squares just under the score line is to allow them to ‘fall’ into place as you pull the strip. Make sense?  Here are individual pictures of the placement.

Take a peek at this video. to watch it unfold.

Cut a strip of Misty Moonlight 1/2 x 4 and a coordinating 3/8 x 4 strip of Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP. Adhere the DSP to the Misty moonlight. Remember the Tear n Tape at the bottom of the panel with the word B-O-Y? Adhere to the front of this strip, in the center,  and bottom of the strip. Now lay flat on your card but do not yet adhere. Take a peek at this picture… the long blue section is UNDERNEATH the strip while the B-O-Y piece is adhered to the bottom of the cross strip. Get it?

Waterfall card
Playful Alphabet Dies
#2

Once you determine the correct placement of the waterfall/ cross strip, adhere Tear n Tape to the cross strip but not across the waterfall strip. The waterfall needs to slide through the opening smoothly but there should not be too much room for sideways movement. Punch a hole about 1/4″ up from the bottom of the pull strip and insert a length of ribbon  – probably 7″  before folding in half.  This becomes your cute “pull” for the waterfall. I used Daffodil Delight 1/4″ as I forgot I had Bumblebee 1/4″, but it worked!

Now do the inside… super simple… Misty Moonlight 4 x 5 1/4, Whisper White 3 7/8 x 5 3/8. A
dd a strip of coordinating  Playing with Patterns 6×6 DSP and adhere to the inside.

#6

The envelope flap has coordinating Playing with Patterns DSP and that’s it! Voila! Such a FUN CARD to make. I hope you try it…
