Stampin’ Up! Fun Fold Friday

Happy Friday everyone! It’s a fun fold kind of day :O) and I’m doing one I haven’t done before. It isn’t difficult but it does demand preciseness in scoring and cutting. It’s called an Arrow Fold… and here it is. No wonder it’s called an arrow fold, right?

Arrow Fold w/ Nature’s Harvest

Besides the fun fold, what makes this stand out are two things: the Harvest Meadow DSP & the gorgeous flowers which I am calling Coneflowers. Love the contrast of the color on the flowers with the Misty Moonlight paper! When I was researching this fold, there are lots of videos making this a fairly large 6×6 card, but I didn’t want something that big. The process is still the same, despite the size. The difference is in the scoring and where that second score it. Let’s get to it, shall we?

Basic – step 1

  • Cut the card base 4 1/4 x 11 (Misty Moonlight for this card), scored at 5 1/2
  • Cut two panels of Basic White 4 1/8 x 5 3/8 + one square at1 7/8″
  • Cut one panel of DSP (Harvest Meadow) 4 x 5 1/4 + one 1 3/4″ square (this is a contrasting DSP that is best non-directional, no stripe either)

Scoring & cutting – step 2

  • Card base:
    • Lay the card base full open with the front of the card facing you. Mark the center point at the bottom front (2 1/4″)
    • Score from the top right corner of the 5 1/2″ score line (the fold as it were) to the center mark.
    • Now score from the top left corner (at the fold line) to the same center point
    • With the front of the card base still facing you, mark 2″ up from the bottom front on both long sides
    • Score from the 2″ mark to the center point (same point as before)
    • Now the card front looks as though it has two ‘V’ score lines – four score lines total, all meeting at the same center point.
    • FOLD the score lines ~ first the corner to center point scores fold to the inside (burnish well), THEN the two other scores are folded outward (burnish well)
  • Panels
    • Basic White panels… Mark the center of each of the two Basic White panels – on the short side on the bottom. (2 1/16) Cut from the top right corner to the bottom center point, then cut from the top left corner to the same center point. Do this to both Basic White panels.
    • DSP panel… Mark the center point at the bottom (2″) and cut from the top right corner to the center point. Now cut from the top left corner to the same center point
    • Squares, both the Basic White square & the DSP square… cut in half on the diagonal, from one corner to the other.

Adhere appropriate panels together. There will be extra Basic White panels that have no DSP – that’s OK! Before adhering panels to the card, we need to use some liquid glue to hold the arrow on the card front in place.

  • On the card front, fold in one of the long score areas (from corner to center) and add a light layer of liquid glue; hold in place until it is secure. Fold in the other long score area (corner to point) and adhere it in the same way. The other scored area is just loose at this point.
  • Add the square pieces to the loose score points. Fold the last scored area, adhere a light bit of glue and hold in place.
Inside front panel of the Arrow Fold Card

This is the inside of another Arrow Fold card. The Misty Moonlight card may overlap somewhat.

Now adhere the panels to the card in this manner:

  • Inside of card, two side panels first… wait to add the center panel until it has been stamped.
  • Center fron panel

Decorate the front… Here I took a Stitched Triangle and cut from a Basic White piece. I stamped a splotch from Gorgeous Leaves stamp set in Sahara Sand ink. On another piece of Basic White I stamped the Coneflowers image in Memento Black ink using the Nature’s Harvest stamp set. I colored the leaves & stems in Smoky Slate Stampin’ Blends and the flowers in Calypso Coral & Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends I die cut the flower image with the Harvest Dies, put several dimensionals on the back and adhered it to the Stitched Triangle piece. I added a double bow of Linen Thread with a glue dot, then attached the triangle to the card front.

Arrow Fold w/ Nature’s Harvest, inside

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from Nature’s Harvest stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink, then stamped the small floral image in Memento Black ink – also from Nature’s Harvest stamp set. I colored it with the same Stampin’ Blends: Smoky Slate for the stems/ leaves, Calypso Coral & Cajun Craze for the flowers. I attached this piece with liquid glue in between the two DSP panels, making certain the areas were as even as possible. Voila! Love this!!!

Here’s another Arrow Fold card with slightly different score lines.

This card was made just a bit differently… the panel on the inside of the card was a solid one with the white panel adhered over the top. I don’t like it as much done that way. I used the Layering Circle Dies with basic White, Real Red & Vellum then a Wonderful Snowflake on top with a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the center. The stamp set was Snowman Season for the images & sentiments and of course the Peaceful Prints DSP which was a FREE item during Sale-a-bration. The side marking was 2 3/4 in lieu of 2″. And let’s see, I also used the Banners Pick a Punch to create the banner for the front. Oh, and I added Red Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the banner.

Stampin’ Up! Emboss Resist for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello ! It’s that time of week for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop.

The challenge is a sketch challenge for this week and I’ve chosen to work with Eden’s Garden Bundle (available to customers Nov 2) and use it to create an emboss resist technique. Here’s the challenge, and next to it is my card.

May be an image of text that says 'Happy Inkin Thursday Blog Hop Dctober 14 Sketch Challenge'
Emboss Resist w/ Eden’s Garden

How to do this emboss resist is really super simply: stamp in VersaMark ink, sprinkle with embossing powder of choice (I used white embossing powder here), heat set, then once cool with a blending Brush add color going over the embossing. Here I used a variety of the leaves from Eden’s Garden stamp set, white embossing powder and Soft Succulent ink after heat setting and allowing to cool. I adhered this piece to a Soft Succulent panel with liquid glue. Once that step was done I took a length of Open Weave Ribbon in soft Succulent and wrapped it around the two panels, securing it in back with Stampin’ Seal+. I die cut this interesting banner using the Eden Dies and Very Vanilla card stock. I also die cut three leaf sprays: two from Gold Foil and a third from Evening Evergreen. I adhered the banner over the ribbon with dimensionals, then tucked the leaf sprays behind it with liquid glue. I added the pretty bow out of Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent with a glue dot. I put dimensionals on the back of the panel and attached it to a thick Very Vanilla card base.

Emboss Resist w/ Eden’s Garden, inside

For the inside I took the edge die from Eden Dies and a panel of Very Vanilla card stock and ran it through the die cutting machine. I adhered this to a panel of Soft Succulent card stock then into the inside of the card. With this gorgeous edge I didn’t think anything else was necessary.

Emboss Resist w/ Eden’s Garden

For the envelope I stamped one of the leaf images from Eden’s Garden stamp set in Soft Succulent ink and covered the flap in Ever Eden SDSP. And this is ready to send… simple, elegant and easy.

Stampin’ Up! Using Retired Products

Happy Wednesday! It’s mid-week and I hope it’s all going well with you… Yesterday was such a full day – no opportunity to play/create 😦 therefore, today I’m going to share several cards made with the Beautifully Penned DSP and a few current stamps & dies that I made over the weekend. They are a gift for someone who doesn’t care if the products used are current ones – so there you have it 👍

Aren’t these fun? Additional products include Scalloped Contour Dies for all three cards., Color & Contour stamp set, Seasonal Labels Dies, Loose Flower Flourishes, Pale Papaya & White Ribbon, Highland Heather Grosgrain Ribbon, Gorgeous Grape card stock, Magenta Madness card stock and Calypso Coral card stock. Love how these turned out!

After tying everything together with a pretty ribbon, this is the tag I made to go with it…

Tailor Made Tag & Pierced Blooms Dies

This was a very fun little gift to give someone who didn’t expect it and who appreciates handmade! I really mixed the colors for these blooms but love the bright cheerful look.

Stampin’ Up! Sparkle of the Season for Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

The theme for this months blog hop is ‘giving thanks’ and there are so many ways of doing that. I’ve chosen to use the Sparkle of the Season Bundle with the coordinating dies and have had great fun putting this together. I worked a bit outside my comfort zone, which is a good thing to do! Be sure you visit everyone’s post in order to see the fabulous creations by this Krew :O)

Sparkle of the Season Thankful.1

You can see I’ve used several products to create the wreath(die cut with the Seasonal Swirls Dies): Crumb Cake card stock, Cork paper & Gold & Rose Gold 6×6 that I colored with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends. I die cut some leaves using the Seasonal Swirls Dies and some card stock that I had created with Blending Brushes and several ink colors. Those tiny leaves I adhered over some of the leaves on the Crumb Cake die cut wreath. Here’s some of the paper left over from that project.

Blending Brush created paper on left, using re-inking technique on right

I interwove the three die cut wreaths, one at a time & did some minor dots of glue to hold them together. Once they were together I did cut a circle with the Layering Circles Dies from Very Vanilla card stock, then stamped it with a sentiment from Sparkle of the Season stamp set. I used Stazon Saddle Brown ink for the sentiment. It has some gold tones in it and I really like how it blended with the wreath colors. I adhered the wreath to the circle and set that aside to work on the rest of the card.

I decided to pull out a piece of the Harvest Meadow DSP and die cut a panel with a Stitched Rectangle Die. I die cut a second panel of the same size from Very Vanilla card stock and adhered it to the Harvest Meadow for strength. I adhered the wreath to this panel with liquid glue, then put dimensionals on the panel and set it aside.

To a Very vanilla card base, I adhered Early Espresso card stock, then a panel of Cork paper over that. I adhered the wreath panel to this with dimensionals as mentioned before. I wrapped a length of Linen Thread around two fingers about five times, twisted it and then tied it tight with another piece of Linen Thread for a full, fluffy bow. I adhered this to the wreath with a glue dot – and the front was done.

Sparkle of the Season Thankful.2

For the inside of the card, I took a Very Vanilla panel and stamped these very cute tiny leaves using the re-inking technique shown on the right above. The tiny leaves come from Sparkle of the Season Stamp set. Re-inking technique: place drops of re-inkers on a baby wipe that is on an acrylic block. In this case I used Mango Melody, Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze – about two drops of each onto the baby wipe. The ink spreads & use that as the stamping pad. (easy- peasy) I also stamped the leaf on a branch using the same process and it is from Sparkle of the Season stamp set. The sentiment is stamped in Stazon Saddle Brown ink and is from the Love of Leaves stamp set. I added a strip of the same Harvest Meadow DSP to the bottom of the panel then added the panel to an Early espresso piece & into the inside of the card. 🙂 done!

Sparkle of the Season Thankful, inside

For the envelope I added the same Harvest Meadow DSP pattern to the flap & trimmed it to fit. On the front of the envelope I used the re-inking technique with the same leaf & branch stamp from Sparkle of the Season stamp set. And that was it. Card stock cuts may be found at the end of this post.

Stampin’ Up! Eden Garden Sending Hugs

Hello Everyone! Did you have a great weekend? Sunday was lots of rain… getting from the car to the house got me thoroughly wet 🙂 It was only 1/2″ but it came down hard at times, then just drizzle the rest of the time. We need it, so there it is. Rain provides me the perfect opportunity to play in my craft room ~ and I played with a new product call Eden Garden. Golly, the papers are gorgeous! But I played with the dies and only a couple of the stamps. This product will be available for customer purchase Nov 2. Here’s the stamp set, dies & a snippit of the Ever Eden’s Specialty DSP. Eden’s Garden is a premier of an item in the Jan-Jun 2022 Mini Catalog. This SDSP is gorgeous and will be available to customers only Nov 2 – Jan 3. Plan to get yours ASAP! Or… you could JOIN MY TEAM here and order it now. 😘

Here’s my creation…

Eden’s Garden Sending Hugs.1

Can you tell there is Wink of Stella on the top layer of leaves? In person it is noticeable. And how do you like the rectangular wreath? Pretty isn’t it? I die cut two layers with the Eden Dies, one in Evening Evergreen and the other in Soft Succulent, then layered them together with dabs of liquid glue here & there. I then die cut with Gold Foil five individual sprigs and adhered them to the back of the wreath with glue dots. I put dimensionals on the back of the wreath and set it aside to do the rest of the card. Here’s a picture of the wreath with all the cut in half dimensionals.

Eden’s Garden Sending Hugs,
back of wreath

I began by stamping on a panel of Basic White, the sentiment from Eden’s Garden stamp set using VersaMark ink, sprinkling it with Gold embossing Powder and heat set it. It’s a very delicate font. I then ran this through the Timeworn Words 3D embossing folder. I adhered this to a Soft Succulent piece with liquid glue then directly to the card base of Evening Evergreen. I attached the wreath with the dimensionals I mentioned earlier then added three Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels. The final step was to cover the top layer of the wreath with Wink of Stella – and the card front was complete! Here the Wink of Stella really shows. TIP: If you want/ need extra ‘Wink” on your card. squeeze an amount on an acrylic block and use the ‘wink’ brush to add to the necessary piece. It goes on a bit heavier and is therefore more sparkly. 🙂

For the inside, I decided a single ‘spray’ using one of the stamps from Eden’s Garden stamp set would be just the thing. I stamped it in VersaMark ink on a Basic White panel, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder & heat set it.

Eden’s Garden Sending Hugs, inside

I adhered the Basic White panel to a Soft Succulent piece, then directly to the inside of the card base.

For the envelope, I stamped the same ‘spray’ in VersaMark ink on the lower left front, sprinkled it with Gold Embossing Powder & heat set it. I added a piece of the gorgeous Eden’s Garden Specialty DSP to the flap, trimmed it to fit & voila!

Stampin’ Up! Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves

Good Saturday morning! It’s a beaut here ~ 65 degrees and a bit breezy. The day is new & fresh :O) I just recently posted (Thurs) a card with a fun centerpiece created w/ Blending Brushes & several colors. Because there was some card stock left over I decided to put it to use and created today’s card. Because of the sentiments used, it can so easily be used as a ‘thinking of you card’ as well.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.1

The three squares are some of what’s remaining of the original coloring, and it’s been backed by Brushed Metallic card stock in a coppery look. The leaves were die cut from Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 using the gold (you can see I left some of the pieces in the leaves – intentionally), Gold foil sheet and a stamped leaf in stamped off Mango Melody. The dies used are Intricate Leaves Dies which coordinates with the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set. The Cajun Craze card stock was run through the Timeworn Word 3D embossing folder and adhered to a Very Vanilla panel and attached to the Cajun craze card base with dimensionals. The sentiment is from the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set and stamped on a Very Vanilla scrap with Pumpkin Pie ink then fussy cut & also adhered with dimensionals. The three leaves were glued in place and a glue dot was used to adhere a double strand bow of Linen Thread.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.2

For the inside…. I used stamped off Pumpkin Pie ink for the leaves, sometimes third generation. The splotch was made with Mango Melody ink ~ both from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set on a panel of Very Vanilla. The sentiment is again from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, stamped in Pumpkin Pie…. and the card was done! Kinda nice having left-over pieces to create a card. :O)

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.3


For the envelope I used the same process as the inside of the card… stamped off Pumpkin Pie for the leaves and Mango Melody ink for the splotch – both on a Very Vanilla envelope.

Here is a photo of the ink colors used to create the original panel with the Blending Brushes.

Stampin’ Up! Stitched Triangles Part 2

Hi Everyone, it’s FRIDAY! We have a beautiful day here on the East Coast – cool temps and hav e to say the trees are turning color. Fall is such a beautiful time of year… ah, but to today’s card. :O) We had a card class here yesterday and made a couple of cards using the Stitched Triangles Dies. A couple of days ago I posted a tree design with the Stitched Triangles and we created one of those. We also created one similar to what I posted some time ago (photo below), this time with some different DSP and yes, from just-ended Sale-a-bration. I shouldn’t do this… but the card turned out so very cute, I just had to share. :O)

Tree post may be found here.

The Poinsettia Stitched Triangle card may be found here.

Each of these was created using the Stitched Triangles and I had so much fun – as did those in the card class. The bears, penguins & fox are just so friendly & light-hearted.

  • card base is Soft Sea Foam 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2
  • triangle bases are die cut from Fresh Freesia 3 1/2 x 4
  • DSP triangles are cut from various sizes from Penguin Playmates DSP
  • the sentiment was stamped in Just Jade ink using the Snowman Season stamp set (the font seemed perfect!)
  • animals were fussy cut and attached with dimensionals
  • Pastel Pearls were added to make it look as though the fox is chasing them 😉

Notice the Fresh Freesia triangles are off-set just a bit, adhered together with liquid glue then adhered to the card base with liquid glue. I used the Stamparatus to place the sentiment after attaching the triangles. The Stamparatus is perfect for this!

The inside – uber easy…

Stitched Triangles Part 2, inside

Oh goodness this looks fuzzy ~ yikes! On a Basic White panel add the two Stitched Triangles as above. Two squares of paper cut 2″ is ample for each triangle. I didn’t want more of a sentiment on this card, so called it done. Love it! Just know this could be done with many different Designer Papers and made into a Thanks or Birthday or Thinking of you. It would make a fantastic masculine card – oh I do have to make one of THOSE!

Stampin’ Up! Leaves

It’s Tuesday, rainy & 64 degrees here on the East coast of the US ~ very fall-ish kind of weather. What are YOU up to today? Once the rain stops, our plan is to pick up some firewood from a friend. It’s been covered so will be dry. It will b e the first of the firewood we stash… we order a full cord and use it all during the winter. If all the acorns that have been falling are any indication, this may be a cold winter. uCard today… I love the simplicity of it. It has a hint of sparkle on the die cut leaf – as it was cut from the Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 Metallic paper. This is gorgeous paper, and I’ve colored this piece with Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends using both the light and dark. I love how it turned out!

Leaves.1

More particulars about this card…

  • run a panel of Very Vanilla card stock through the die cutting machine using the Stitched Leaves Dies, making this fun design on the left side of the panel. This die doesn’t actually cut the paper so much as emboss the design – love it!
  • die cut a circle using the second largest in the Layering Circles dies – from Very Vanilla card stock.
  • die cut the leaf from the Intricate Leaves Dies (found in the Jul-Dec 2021 Mini Catalog) from the
    Rose Gold paper in the Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 Metallic Paper pack. Color it with the Light Cajun Craze, then add highlights with the Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend.
  • Adhere the leaf to the circle with just dots of liquid glue
  • Place the circle but do not adhere… stamp the sentiment with VersaMark ink from Very
    Versailles stamp set, then sprinkle with Copper Embossing powder & heat set.
  • Add the Open Weave Ribbon in Soft Succulent to the back of the circle with Stampin’ Seal+
  • Put dimensionals on the back of the circle and add to the card front.
  • Attach this Very Vanilla panel to the Evening Evergreen card base & voila!, the card front is done
Leaves.2

For the inside…

  • Stamp the sentiment from Very Versailles on a panel of Very Vanilla using VersaMark ink, sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder & heat set.
  • Stamp the beautiful leaf stamp from the Gorgeous Leaves stamp set with Just Jade ink, stampin off once, then stamping again without re-inking. Do this several times – to your satisfaction.
  • Adhere the Very Vanilla panel to a Just Jade piece, slightly larger, then into the Evening Evergreen card base.

For the envelope…

  • Do the same process on the front of the envelope with Just Jade ink, Gorgeous Leaves stamp set.
  • Emboss with the Stitches Leaves Dies on the envelope flap
