I’m showcasing another Arrow Fold card today as I have a card c lass tomorrow that is going to make this as a 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 card, but will also make a 4 1/4 x 11 size card with this fun fold. I posted the other card a few days ago and you can see that card here, with all it’s dimensions and glory. Today’s card though…

Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.1

This card was made with a retired DSP from the recent Sale-a-bration as a FREE product with a $50 purchase. It is called Peaceful Prints. I need lots of Christmas cards and this was a perfect use for this paper. :O) But you may use lots of other Designer Series Papers. Here are details:

Step 1 – Cutting & scoring

  • Card base: Basic Black 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 scored at 4 1/4 for this card. Score on the front panel from the right corner score line to the center point (2 3/4″). Do the same from the score at the left top corner to the center point. Mark 2″ up from the bottom on the short side of the front on both short sides. Score again from the 2″ mark to the center point on both sides of the front panel. Burnish well.
  • Layer 1: Basic White 5 3/8 x 4 1/8,(cut 2) Mark center on the long side on both panels at 2 1/16″. CUT from right corner to center point. Do the same from the left corner to the point. Do this to both Basic White panels. I strongly encourage marking on the back side of the center triangle the top of the triangle for both triangular panels.
  • Layer 2: DSP – Peaceful Prints 5 1/4 x 4. Mark the center point on the bottom of the DSP @ 2″. CUT from the right upper corner to the center point. Do the same from the upper left corner to the center point.

Step 2 ~ Adhering

  • Adhere DSP to correct panels. There will be a Basic White triangular panel for the inside of the card to stamp. There will be an extra set of Basic White corner panels that will not be used.
  • Add corner panels to the INSIDE of the card.
  • Turn in the front corner scores and adhere. See photo…
  • Turn the second score line (the 2″ score) and mark a line to indicate where the glue should be placed. Refer to 1st photo above. Adhere these score lines outward.
  • Add center panels to the FRONT of the card.

Step 3 ~ Decorate Front

  • Cut a 3″ square of Basic White and die cut a scalloped circle.
  • Cut a 2 3/4″ square of Garden Green and die cut a circle. Adhere together.
  • Cut a 2 1/2″ square of Vellum and die cut a circle.
  • Adhere with dimensionals, a Wonderful snowflake to the center of the Vellum circle.
  • Adhere Vellum piece with a bit of glue in the center, to the Garden Green circles.
  • Adhere this Wonderful Snowflake/ circle to the triangle on the front of the card as shown, allowing room for a sentiment banner.
  • Stamp with Garden Green ink the sentiment on a 5/8″ wide strip. The sentiment comes from Snowman Season stamp set. Trim ends with Pick a Banner Punch. Add banner to the front of the card with dimensionals on the extended panels.
Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2

Step 4 ~ Decorate the inside

  • With the remaining Basic White triangular panel (note the top mark on the back!), stamp the sentiment from Snowman Season in Garden Green ink.
  • Stamp snowflakes from Snowman Season stamp set in Memento Black ink
  • Adhere triangular panel to the inside of the card – and the card is done!
Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, inside

Step 5 ~ the Envelope

  • Stamp the front of the envelope with the very cute dancing snowman in Memento Black ink from the Snowman Season stamp set.
  • Adhere a 2 14 x 6 panel of coordinating Peaceful Prints DSP to the flap, trim to fit & voila… another Christmas Card.
Arrow Fold 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, completed

Isn’t this a fun fold, AND a fun, happy Christmas card? I’m very please with it and think this will make a hit at our card class tomorrow. Maybe we’ll take some photos of their completed cards :O)

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! 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.

Birthday w/ Gorgeous Leaves.4

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
Leaves.3

This card is being entered into two challenges: the Color Fusers Blog Hop – October

Stampin’ Up! Trees, Trees, Trees

Welcome to MONDAY! It’s the beginning of a new week, new challenges, various obligations. I hope yours goes well! Today’s post is a rather different & fun card using the Stitched Triangles Dies and various widths of Christmas paper scraps, along with acrylic sheets. I strongly recommend having grid paper under the acrylic sheet to keep papers straight!

Trees, Trees w/ Stitched Triangles.1

First, choose your papers and cut in various widths. I chose Peaceful Prints DSP and the strips range in width from from 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″ and even one is 3/4″ in width. Hold the acrylic sheet in place on the grid paper with tape of some sort. Place papers as desired & hold them in place on the acrylic sheet. Adhere with Stampin’ Seal or liquid glue, depending on width of paper. Place the Stitched Triangle Die over top, move to die cutting machine & cut. Voila – perfect trees! Add a ‘trunk’ to the large tree ~ mine is in Sahara Sand 1/2″ square. You could do the same for the other trees, just make them smaller.

Now create the rest of the card… card base is Real Red. Run a panel of Evening Evergreen card stock through the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and adhere to a slightly larger Basic White panel. Add dimensionals to the back of the Basic White and adhere to the card front. Now add dimensionals to the back of trees making certain they do not show through where strips are separated. Also keep in mind the placement of the trees and if overlap, pay special attention to where the dimensionals are placed. Stamp the sentiment from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set in Evening Evergreen and fussy cut. Put dimensionals on the back and place. Add Gilded Gems to the tree tops.

Trees, Trees w/ Stitched Triangles.2

For the inside… Again I used the Heartfelt Wishes stamp set, again in Evening Evergreen ink on a Basic White panel. Adhere the panel to the inside of the card – and done!

Trees, Tress w/ Stitched Triangles, 3

The envelope, I still had several strips so used them to cover the flap and trimmed to fit. For the front, I stamped the sentiment from Heartfelt Wishes stamp set in Evening Evergreen ink. Another for my Christmas stash! This design was inspired by another demonstrator and found on Pinterest ~ whose name I forget! My sincerest apologies… 😳 Card cuts are listed at the bottom of the post.

Stampin’ Up! Reflected in Nature – Breathe

Whoa – it’s Oct 1! Oh my how the time has flown…. less than 90 days before Christmas. I’m stunned… and it’s chilly outside. It got down to 45 last night – definite sweater weather. Which b rings me to today’s card – a campsite, maybe fall, maybe winter with some snow. I love the scene! Today’s card is about being in the present, the now. The stamp is called Reflected in Nature. I’ve done it in two tones: Night of Navy and Balmy Blue.

Reflected in Nature – Breathe.1

My Night of Navy is very inky and I had to play with this a bit to get it as I wanted. The picture itself is quite nice and I wanted to be able to see it readily.. inked full strength it was too heavy. This is a single stamp, so in order to do the upper in one color and the lower in another, it was necessary to use a post-it note to cover one side to ink, remove the note then stamp, and follow the same procedure on the other side. This is best done with the Stamparatus. With the stamp in place it is easy to re-stamp if necessary and it’s on a Very Vanilla panel. You can see the background on the card has gone through an embossing folder – Timber 3D to be exact – perfect for the stamp. And that’s Balmy Blue card stock layered on a panel of Night of Navy. And I fussy cut around the inked picture, layered it on a strip of Night of Navy that I had torn the edges to make it look worn – to go with the natural scene. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, Reflected in Nature, and stamped in Night of Navy ink on a Very Vanilla panel. I die cut it with a label die from Harvest Dies. It was added to the card front with dimensionals. Did I mention the cabin stamp is also on dimensionals? I added three Holiday Rhinestone Jewels in navy.

Reflected in Nature – Breathe.2

On the inside Very Vanilla panel I stamped the sentiment – again from Reflected in Nature in Balmy Blue ink, then added the bird stamp in Night of Navy ink. It is really soaring! It is layered on a Night of Navy panel then adhered directly to the inside of the card.

Reflected in Nature – Breathe.3

For the envelope I ran the Night of Navy piece through the Timber 3D embossing folder then adhered it to the flap and trimmed to fit. On the front I stamped another sentiment in Night of Navy ink from Reflected in Nature stamp set. And this card is ready for someone special. It’s tailored, so easily can be masculine. I’ve another one of these I’m working on, in shades of gray.

I’ll do the product list, then I want to share something special about tomorrow – World Card Making Day and what our team is doing to celebrate it :O)
