Showcasing the NEW In-Colors with a Simple Layout

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am thrilled to share the fabulous NEW In-Colors with you today. The new 2022-2024 In-Colors are fun and will coordinate not only with each other but will coordinate beautifully with our core colors as well. I demonstrated a simple layouts in my video (a replay of last nights Facebook LIVE) that is perfect for those of you who make multiple cards at a time … very quick & easy.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

Here is the card that I demonstrated in the video … I believe this is my very favorite but the others are pretty awesome! I’m having a hard time picking a favorite in this group.

Let me introduce you to Starry Sky ….

How It’s Made  

  • Cut a 4-1/4 x 8-1/2″ piece of Basic White cardstock for the card base. Score at 4-1/4.  Crease fold and set aside for assembly.
  • Cut a 2 x 2-1/2″ piece of Basic White to stamp image onto and a 2-1/4″ x 2-3/4″ for a double mat. 
  • Cut a 2-1/8″ x 2-5/8″ piece of the In-Color as the mat behind the stamped image, and a 4″ x 5-1/4″ to be stamped and layered onto the card base.
  • The stamped image will be layered and popped up onto your card front.

The next card is the beautiful Orchid Oasis …

Here is the bright and bold Parakeet Party … this color is anything but shy!

If you have a taste for the shades of red you will fall in love with Sweet Sorbet. The color reminds me of watermelon but it sure is a tasty shade of fun.

The last of this years In-Colors but most definitely not the least is the beautiful Tahitian Tide just waiting to take you someplace warm and sunny. The color reminds me of our old Tempting Turquoise which we loved and missed … this will easily fit the bill.

I hope you enjoyed my showcase into the fun and playful new In-Colors … can’t wait to share even more with you!

Book Binder Fun Fold: Two Layouts

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am thrilled to share this Quick & Easy Fun Fold with you today. Super simple to make yet it adds a fun twist to your cards. I demonstrated two different layouts in my video (a replay of last nights Facebook LIVE) and then I’ll have another layout that you can create as well.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

Book Binder Fun Fold … Super Simple!

HORIZONTAL PROFILE (Above) How It’s Made  

  • Cut a 4-1/4 x 11″ piece of Soft Succulent cardstock for the card base. Score at 5-1/2 and 4-1/4.  Crease folds and add adhesive to the inside of the two scored lines.  The 4-1/4″ score line should be facing out on the front of the card. 
  • Cut a 4 x 4″ piece of Designer Paper (or cardstock) and adhere to card front. 
  • Cut a 1″ x 4″ strip from the tulip design designer series paper and adhere to the left side margin on the card front.

PORTRAIT PROFILE (Above) How It’s Made  

  • Cut a 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ piece of Evening Evergreen cardstock for the card base. Score at 4-1/4” and 5-1/4”.  Crease folds and add adhesive to the inside of the two scored lines… You can add your ribbon at this time.
  • To layer card front; cut Basic White 5-1/4” x 3” (Cut 2: one for inside and one for mat on front)  Cut Designer paper to 5” x 2-3/4” to layer on top of white.
  • Binder area is cut in Basic White at 5-1/4” x 3/4” and I embossed with “Brick” embossing folder for some texture.

Cool … right! Now, let me share another layout you can use when creating the Book Binder Fun Fold. It’s another portrait however the card stock is cut at the usual 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ and it is scored at the 4-1/4″ and 5-1/4″ … now you will just position your “binder” to the “TOP” of your card.

The designer paper is cut at the same dimensions as well … however, you need to make sure you are “cutting” to the designer of the paper. On this card, my “binder” actually has the same designer paper, I just flipped it over. The greeting also comes from the Flowing Flowers stamp set, same as we used on our first card.

Enjoy making this fun fold … it’s really easy, and you’re going to have a blast creating with all your beautiful designer papers. Don’t forget, you can add in your embossing folders, die cuts or hand stamped items!

Faux Step Card with a Twist

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am back today with the “FAUX” Step Card that I changed up a bit … and I’m going through step by step with dimensions on how to recreate this card. Today I’m using the Hand Penned Petals bundle… and I love the way this card turned out. I have this all on video for you to view.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

Dimensions:

  • Card Base: Basic Black: 9” x 4-1/4” then Score at 1-1/4”, 2-1/2” and 5-3/4”
  • Cardstock #2: Basic Black Center Step: 8-1/2” x 2-1/4” then Score and fold at 5-1/2”
  • Cardstock #3: Basic White 3″ x 4″ for inside of card / Scrap of white for greeting and Highland Heather as a mat (Cut with the Layering Circle Dies)
  • Designer Paper #1: Hand Penned Petals (Mint Macaron) for Center Step 2″ x 5-1/4″ and Floral Design paper is 3″ x 4″ and 1″ x 4″.

I find it easiest to lay the card base out flat when attaching the designer paper, as shown in the video.

What a fun twist to the card … placing your “center step” either on the right or the left side of the card. It gives you a totally different look. For my card, I choose to put my center step to the right to balance out the greeting which I let “hang over” the left side … that gives it another dimension to the card.

I love the way this card turned out! Don’t you just love that feeling when you’re done creating something that turned out sooo cool!

I hope you enjoyed the quick coloring technique as well …. it was fun and easy to recreate the watercolor look that you find on the Hand Penned Petals designer paper.

Enjoy making this fun fold … it’s really easy, and I love the twist of placing the “step” off to the side.

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Oh my gosh … this video is perfect for those of us who need to make a quick last minute card! I will share some great tips to make your card making a bit easier, the Foam Adhesive sheet. Grab a cup of coffee and join me for a spell.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

  • Basic Black Card front Embossed: 4″ x 5-1/4″ (Scrap to die cut letters out: HELLO)
  • Foam Adhesive Sheet: 4″ x 1-3/4”

This card was so fun to create … a great way to use up some of those scraps and the result is a bold, fun and colorful card!

Don’t we all that some scrap designer paper left over as well, so cut your Foam Adhesive sheet the size of your Designer Paper (Mine was 3″ x 3″) and adhere it to the card front you just embossed. Finish off your card with a cute greeting ….

There are so many ways to use these foam adhesive sheets, but I think that “Use Your Scraps Up” Card is my favorite!!

Have fun creating and thank you for hanging out with me today.

Tulips & Stitched Greenery Die Video

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am happy to share an amazing die that I have fallen in love with along with two cards highlighting the cool look that you get… It’s the Stitched Greenery die. I’m teaming it up with the beautiful Flowering Tulips bundle. I’m having quite a bit of fun playing with this bundle.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

Dimensions:

  • Card Base / Basic Black : 8-1/2” x 5-1/2” then Score at 4-1/4” and Mat: 4-1/8″ x 2-7/8″
  • Cardstock #2: Pear Pizzazz: 4″ x 5-1/4”
  • Cardstock #3: Basic White 4″ x 2-3/4″

The depth and detail of the Stitiched Greenery die is nothing short of stunning, and with all of the beautiful floral stamp sets and bundles, I believe this to be a staple in anyone’s stamping room.

You can just run it through your die cutting & emboss machine and leave it as is … or you can add a touch of color directly to the die as I did on my next card ….

On this card I patted the Evening Evergreen ink pad onto the die and then ran it through the Die cutting & embossing machine. It is a very subtle touch of color but still adds the texture as before. I’m hooked!!

Stop back tomorrow and the next couple of days as I share even more ideas on how you can maximize the use of this die. I know once you get it … YOU will love it! I have the link for you below.

Have fun creating and thank you for hanging out with me today.

I am excited to share the “FAUX” Step Card that I shared with my Stamp Club in February. I have my Facebook LIVE video to share with you so you can see how easy it is to create this FUN FOLD card. I’m also sharing the dimensions with you.

Let’s take a look at the video now …

Dimensions:

  • Card Base: Old Olive: 9” x 4-1/4” then Score at 1-1/4”, 2-1/2” and 5-3/4”
  • Cardstock #2: Old Olive Center Step: 8-1/2” x 2-1/4” then Score and fold at 5-1/2”
  • Cardstock #3: Basic White 3″ x 4″ for inside of card / Scrap of white for greeting
  • Designer Paper #1: Expressions in Ink for Center Step 2″ x 5-1/4″ and Striped paper 4″ x 4″ cut off 1″ from bottom so it aligns during assembly

I find it easiest to lay the card base out flat when attaching the designer paper, as shown in the video. Then use your favorite adhesive to attach the center flap … you’ll want to make sure to center and align the front flap to the bottom, then attach to the back.

.

Ahhh … Don’t you just love making quick & easy cards that look like you spent all day cutting and creating!! lol No one has to know that … right! Just image all the different designer papers or dies that you can use with this Fun Fold Faux Step Card.

Have fun creating and thank you for hanging out with me today.
