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! 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! 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! Merriest Moments Layered

Hello Crafters… well, I did it, my first Facebook Live. Whew. And it wasn’t so bad. I didn’t shake throughout as I was afraid I might. I WAS crooked, so that’s something I must fix. All in all, a positive experience and I’m thankful & grateful to have been asked to participate in the Inkin’ Krew World Card-Making Day. Today’s post gives all the details about yesterday’s card and some particulars about the Merriest Moments Bundle. It’s confusing to some as it includes a Hybrid Embossing Folder. And what that means is it die cuts & embosses at the same time. What seems to confuse folks is what plates to use. We’ll start with that…

Embossing AND die cutting with Hybrid Embossing Folders: three ‘steps’

  1. Emboss as you normally would using the #1 base plate & #4 Specialty Plate used with 3D embossing folders.
  2. Cut & emboss with the outline die & hybrid folder: the die lies easily in the hybrid folder with the cutting blade facing you and the die in the side with the SU! logo. Place the card stock against it (at least a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 sheet), close the folder. Use the #1 base plate & the #4 Specialty Plate… the embossing folder is sandwiched between… and roll it through the cut & emboss machine.
  3. Cut & emboss with the detail die and the hybrid folder: the detail die lies easily in the hybrid folder as did the outline die… cutting blade toward you & lying in the SU! logo side of the hybrid folder, place a piece of card stock in the folder (at least 4 1/4 x 5 1/2), close the folder. Use the #1 base plate & the #2 die plate & run it through the machine. Remove the card stock & the detail die, replace the detailed cut piece into the embossing folder & run it through as if embossing (#1 base plate & #4 Specialty Plate). This reinforces the embossing and gives the piece more detail embossing. With the detail die, it is really a two-step process but it gives a beautiful look.

And here’s my finished card.

Merriest Moments Layered.1

Cherry Cobbler card stock is the base (card cuts at the end of this post) with a layer of Cherry Cobbler run through the Merriest Moments Hybrid Embossing Folder, adhered directly to the base. The next layer is the Silver Foil run through the same Hybrid Folder but with the outline die included when running it through the machine. (see step 2 above). This was adhered to the card front with liquid glue just in the center portion of the cut & embossed piece. Then, with Shimmer Paper/ Pearlescent Paper card stock, I ran this through the machine as in step 3 (with the detail die) above PLUS I included the rectangular die also, removing the center portion of the piece.I embossed this center rectangle with silver embossing powder (stamp with versamark first, then sprinkle with embossing powder & heat set)using this fun sentiment from the Merriest Moments stamp set. I adhered this right onto the silver foil, using liquid glue. (you could use Stampin’ Seal). Add Foam Adhesive Strips along the border of the rectangle (back side of course) of this stunning Shimmer Paper/ Pearlescent Paper piece. Adhere to the card front, aligning the pattern just so. What is so nice about this is the way the silver foil peeks through, and how the Shimmer Paper/ Pearlescent Paper piece is raised and gives the sentiment more focus.

I could have stopped there, but didn’t. 😏 I stamped these very nice 2 sizes of flower petals (they look like poinsettia petals to me) in Blushing Bride ink on scraps of Shimmer Paper/ Pearlescent Paper, and die cut them. I also die cut three itty bitty petals just in the Shimmer Paper/ Pearlescent Paper. I layered the two Blushing Bride petals together, adhered the smaller to the larger with a mini dimensional and added a Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the center. This was glued (liquid glue) to the card front in the corner. I then added Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the mini Shimmer Paper/ Pearlescent Paper petals and adhered two of them as you see in the photo. Love, love, love.

Merriest Moments Layered.2

OOPS! This is sideways – blast. Imagine it straight :O)

To a Basic White panel, I stamped the pine frond with VersaMark ink, sprinkled it with silver embossing powder and heat set it. I added the very last Shimmer Paper/ Pearlescent Paper mini petal to the frond with liquid glue, adhered the panel to the inside of the card and the inside was done. In fact, the whole card was done.

The envelope got a panel of Whimsy & Wonder SDSP trimmed to fit & voila! I love how this
SDSP coordinates with the silver foil on the card. And another Christmas card to my card stash for mailing Dec 1! Gosh, now that I think about it, I could begin addressing these :O)

Merriest Moments Layered.3

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)

NOTHING BEATS A HANDMADE CARD!

Stampin’ Up! Picture This Christmas

about.LAST DAY OF SALE-A-BRATION!!! Can you believe it? It has gone by f-a-s-t… And, if you didn’t get all those free items, today is the last day for it. Do you need help in deciding to purchase – – or to join as a demonstrator? Let’s talk if you do… send me a message and I will do my best to answer your questions. And if I don’t know, I’ll find out.

Today’s card is, well, different. It’s a bit ‘fussy’ with bows. Don’t ask how I decided to do this, I just did. I started playing and this is the result. I have to say, it puts a smile on my face, it’s cheery. Are you full of suspence?

Picture This Christmas.1

The Whimsy & Wonder SDSP is really special. This silver and white stripe has the dark Mossy Meadow with dots on the opposite side. So when I die cut the silver & white, at first I didn’t know what to do with the cut-outs. I had no intention of using them, but you can see I DID. I sy cut the packages, put dimensionals on the back and attached them to the circles.Of course this needed a backing… Polished Pink card stock to the rescue – it brightens the whole piece. Next, what to do in the smaller circles… I had fussy cut some other items from a different sheet of the SDSP, but didn’t like them. I tied the Open Weave Polished Pink bow and liked it, then the Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon was next. I wanted to incorporate silver somehow but the Simply Elegant Trim by itself wasn’t enough – so, I colored a length of the Crinkled Seam Binding with Blushing Bride ink, let it dry, and combined the two: Crinkled Seam Binding and the Simply Elegant Trim in Silver. Each of these is attached with a glue dot. I cut another piece of the Whimsy & Wonder SDSP and adhered it to Mint Macaron card stock, then added that to the Thick Basic White card base. The Polished Pink panel got dimensionals and was added to the card front & voila! done.

Picture This Christmas.2

For the inside I stamped the sentiment from the Whimsical Trees stamp set in Mint Macaron ink. Since I had several fussy cut pieces on the desk, I decided an ornament would be fun. But first I took the Mint Macaron Marker & drew a ‘string’ for hanging, then added the bauble with liquid glue. This was adhered to the inside of the card and voila! done again. :O)

Picture This Christmas.3


For the envelope, I stamped the tree on the front – Mint Macaron ink using the Whimsical Trees stamp set. Then on the flap I added a different pattern of the Whimsy & Wonder SDSP. Can you see where the ornament came from on the inside of the card? Fun card, different. This will have to go to someone special – the card looks better in real life – just sayin’.

Ok, what’s next – oh yes… you want to know all the products, right? Here goes…

Stampin’ Up! You’re a Peach Birthday

Now is the perfect time… $99 to sign up but $125 worth of products PLUS a FREE BUNDLE ~ then as long as you are a demonstrator 20% (or more) off your purchasing price. The list of possible bundles to choose from is at the end of this post. Buy now ~ join now. 👍 you may do that here.

Today’s post is a birthday card – ordered by our daughter. She said she was down to one, could you send some more please? This is the first of the batch.

You’re A Peach Birthday.1

The DSP is You’re a Peach DSP layered on Pale Papaya, then Calypso Coral that was die cut with Stitched Rectangles Dies. And that beautiful spray? It comes from Artistic Dies and Gold/ Rose Gold 6×6 DSP. Isn’t it absolutely gorgeous – the spray & the Gold? I keep forgetting I have it. I kept the card pretty simple – so mailing would be a single stamp. Postage is increasing and that’s a consideration when I make cards for an order. The Calypso Coral panel is on dimensionals. The sentiment comes from Art Gallery stamp set and was stamped in Calypso Coral ink. I added three Metallic Pearls in gold for the final touch.

You’re A Peach Birthday.2

The inside… a background layer of Calypso Coral, then the Basic White stamped layer. Since I had the Art Gallery stamp set available, I stamped the sentiment then a couple of the small flowers, stamped off Calypso Coral for the larger stamp and Pale Papaya for the second or filler stamp. I took a Micron pen and inked around the flower to give it a bit of definition. I like the added touch. I adered the Basic White panel and the card was done!

You’re A Peach Birthday.3

For the envelope, I added a panel of the same You’re a Peach DSP to the flap & trimmed it to fit – and that was it. This is a bright cheery card and puts a smile on my face ~ I hope it does yours as well. I’ll give the product list, then I’ll share the list of bundles you can get – for FREE is you join up now as a demonstrator. I would love to have you on my team 😁

Stampin’ Up! Simply Elegant and Wonderful Snowflakes

Hi everyone… a bit late today… it’s Monday and a sailing day and silly me didn’t get this written & scheduled last night… but here I am. Today’s card is made with the Simply Elegant DSP, Gold Shimmer Vellum (from the Jul-Dec Mini 2021 Catalog and Encircled in Beauty Dies plus one or two other items. I hadn’t broken open the Encircled in Beauty Dies and am so disappointed I haven’t used them more – they are, well, beautiful :O]

Simply Elegant DSP w/ Wonderful Snowflakes.1

This is such an easy layout to ‘change up’. Besides the Simply Elegant DSP which is a major focus, there is also the Wonderful Snowflake and the background for it is a die cut from Gold Shimmer Vellum using one of the Encircled in Beauty Dies. Another addition is 7/8″ wide Textured Ribbon in Smoky Slate – lots of grays & golds going on here. The special touch is the Silver Embossing Powder for the sentiment. To me, that really brings it all together. The sentiment comes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set. Card cuts will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Simply Elegant DSP &
Wonderful Snowflakes.2

For the inside, more snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set stamped n a Basic White panel with VersaMark ink, covered with Silver Embossing Powder and heat set. The snowflakes add a finishing touch to the inside – and I didn’t feel another sentiment was necessary, but it would be easy enough to do. Adhere panel to the inside of the card and that’s it!

Simply Elegant DSP & Wonderful Snowflakes.3

The flap got more of the same Simply Elegant DSP trimmed to fit. The front of the envelope got more of the snowflakes from Snowflake Wishes stamp set… stamped w/ VersaMark, covered with Silver Embossing Powder & heat set. And it’s ready for Christmas mailing 😁 This puts me at 31 Christmas cards… more to make with a goal of 100! I’m not good at mass producing, meaning… I don’t like to do it. I certainly can and may have to resort to it, but not yet.
