Back Home from our Stampin’ Retreat

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I am so full of gratitude for the amazing weekend we had for our Annual Spring Stamping Retreat! The weather was windy and rainy but it always seemed to clear when we had to go outside … a true sign if you ask me!

I have a peek into our stamping retreat for you … I will share a bit more in the coming days as well. I will begin with the door tags … Each guest has a name tag on their door so they know which room the will be staying in and they are free to take it home with them. They can easily pop the name off and turn it into a card!

This was created using the Heart and Home Suite of products … The “theme” for our retreat. The Heart and Home designer paper, Flowers Of Home Dies, Heart & Home Doilies in Basic Grey, the White 3/4″ Frayed Ribbon which comes from the Artfully Composed suite (pg.32 in Mini), the 1/8″ Cotton Ribbon in Petal Pink which is layered over and the Petal Pink cardstock embossed with the Thanks & Hello Embossing Folders all layered onto a Basic Grey base. I printed each guest’s name onto Basic White Cardtock (from my computer) and punched it out using the Tailored Tag Punch (retiring today).

The cup is a food safe cup that has retired from the Stampin’ Up! catalog … I decorated it with the Heart and Home Designer Series paper … to do this, I took apart one of the cups, and traced the outside onto designer paper and cut it out to make my wrap!! They were so cute!

The cover was created using Evening Evergreen cardstock, die cut with the Layering Circle Dies and embossed with the NEW 3-D Fern Embossing Folder. My “greeting” to my guests comes from the NEW Nature’s Prints Stamp set from our Sun Prints Suite … pg. 90 & 91. WOW!!

As my guests come into the dining room, over the fireplace …. they find what I call my Mantle Gifts! Each retreat I decorate the mantle with a hand crafted gift that they get to take home at the end of the retreat. These are actual “pocket cards” and a seed packet was tucked inside to they have a “living” remembrance of our retreat. Each seed packet is adorned with a flower … which is actual chocolate! We all know how good chocolate and stamping go together!

Here is a closer look ….

The card was created from one sheet of Very Vanilla … I created my own pattern for this. From the left over piece of vanilla, I stamped and punched (Label Me Lovely Punch) my greeting which come from one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets: Peaceful Moments. The pretty die cut flowers come from the Hand-Penned Petals bundle.

The “sentiments” on my gifts are carefully picked to show my thoughts and gratitude to my guests for choosing to spend their time with me at my Annual Retreats … I want to create an atmosphere of fun, relaxation and camaraderie. (noun: camaraderie: mutual trust and friendship among people who spend a lot of time together.)

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.

FUN FOLD: Faux Step Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

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.

Fun Fold Window Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m going to share the second card from my LIVE on Tuesday …. I’m highlighting the Friendly Hello Stamp Set and Designer Paper that is in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

Yesterday I shared the “Side Fold” version of this Fun Fold ….

Today I’m going to show you the “Top Fold” version … the inside is exactly the same! It’s just the outside card base that is either folds down from the top, or over from the side. Isn’t that cool 🙂

Measurements:  

  • Petal Pink Cardbase: 11″ x 4-1/4″ … Score & Fold at 5-1/2″
  • Friendly Hello Designer Paper for Front: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Use Circle Dies to Die Cut the “Window” in Front of your card (Save Designer Paper Circle)
  • Basic White Inside Cardstock: 5-1/4″ x8″ … Score at 4″ and 6″ / A scrap piece to die cut smaller circle for your stamped image.

We begin with the Petal Pink Cardbase cut to 11″ x 4-1/4″ and then score & fold at 5-1/2″. If you want to stamp directly onto your designer paper, now is the time. Using your favorite adhesive (around the edges only and NOT in the center) secure your designer paper to the front. The next step is to die cut the circle …. save both the cardstock and designer paper circles. The next step is to secure the “fun fold” into your cardbase …. the scored side will go to the right side of your card.

Put adhesive onto the back of the 5-1/4″ x 4″ section of the white folded piece and secure it inside the card. The first score (at the edge) is folded to the right and the second score if folded back upon itself…. burnish with your bone folder and close the card.

The Basic White cardstock fold is now exposed so it’s time to secure the Petal Pink circle to the fun fold …. this will be done while the top flap is down. Apply adhesive on the one section of the flap … that is why I close my card, it makes it so easy to remember exactly where to put the adhesive to attach your circle. Once you have stamped your image onto the white circle and color it, you can attach it to the pink.

If you want to add the die cut designer paper into the inside of your card like I did …. flip up the top, open the fold and then drop the top back down and one you have adhesive on your designer paper circle, fit it directly into the opening and then everything will line up perfect!

I think you are going to have so much fun making these cards… fun and easy is the way.

Thank you for hanging out with me today, have a great one!

Sunshine & Rainbows Window Fun Fold Card

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’m excited to share today’s card with you!! It is a fun fold card that I first shared at my Holiday Stampin’ Retreat … so I updated it with the Rainbows of Happiness bundle and the Sunshine & Rainbows Designer paper that you will find in the Sale-a-bration Catalog.

I also will share the video created from last nights Facebook LIVE ….

Measurements:  

  • Bermuda Bay Cardbase: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″ … Score & Fold at 4-1/4″
  • Sunshine & Rainbows Designer Paper for Front: 5-1/4″ x 4″
  • Use Circle Dies to Die Cut the “Window” in Front of your card
  • Basic White Inside Cardstock: 5-1/4″ x8″ … Score at 4″ and 6″

This card is so cute and easy to make … Just think of all the different stamp sets/bundles you could use … you saw 2 additional fun folds in the video!!

This is the “side fold” card and when they open it … it’s a “fun” surprise on the inside. Remember to attach the inside layer with the score lines to your right so you can fold them into the card.

And ONLY apply adhesive on the one section of the flap … that is why I close my card, it makes it so easy to remember exactly where to put the adhesive to attach your circle. Have a blast making this Fun Fold card!!

I’ll share the “Friendly Hello” Top Fold Card with you tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.

Halloween POP UP Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Enter if you Dare!! Today, I’m sharing the a Fun & Functional Halloween Card … The fun is the POP UP – inside the card a haunted cabin pops up to give you a 3-D effect complete with ghosts!! The functional is the my card serves as a “GIFT CARD” too!

Let’s start with the front of the card … I used the “Cute Halloween” Designer Series paper and Black & White Gingham Ribbon dyed with my Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends Marker.

The inside of the card is created with the “Peaceful Cabin” bundle and the magic of our Blending Brushes … this is illustrated in the video below.

You’ll also see that I used another pattern of the Cute Halloween Designer Paper which creates the pocket you can put your Gift Card into.

In this photo, you will notice I “did not” line the back of my cabin as I showed in the video … I wanted you to see the difference. Here you can see the purples through the cabin … kind of spooky!

Enjoy the video and please let me know if you have any questions …

This fun card is very easy to make … three simple components, the front, the pop up & background and the base in which you can tuck in a Gift Card. Your ghouls and goblins are going to flip for this card!!

The dimensions for the “pop up” section of the card is 3″ by 2-1/4″ … score in 1/2″ incriminates: Score at 1/2″ – 1″ – 1-1/2″ and 2″ … then CUT at 2-1/4″. The 1/4″ edge will be your glue flap that secures the pop up together.

Here is the Fall Special I talked about in my video. Please message me if you have any question. Thank you!!

Thank you for stopping by and spending a part of your day with me. I hope the rest of your day is wonderful ~

Flippin’ for Waterfall Cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today, I’m sharing the fabulous flippin’ Waterfall card with you … this fun is just that, FUN!! I have three cards and a short video for you today.

Let’s start with the first card I created using the Beautifully Penned Designer paper from our Sale-a-bration catalog (FREE with a $50 purchase / before Ship&Handling)

I gave the flowers a hint of color using my Flirty Flamingo ink pad and Sponge Daubers. I then went over the flowers with the Wink of Stella.

The second card was created with the Cute Halloween Designer paper … you can find this adorable paper in the Mini Catalog.

The background paper comes from the Pattern Party Designer paper which is one of our Hostess Gifts!! You’ll see in the video how I embellished the paper with a pop of color….

You will want to watch the video as it shows you how simple the cards are to create, and how budget friendly this layout truly is. I even talk about how you break down the costs.

Enjoy the video and please let me know if you have any questions …

The crucial dimensions you need for your Waterfall card is the Waterfall itself: 9-1/4″ x 2″ … Punch one end and flip to score other side: Score at 2″ … 2-3/4″ … 3-1/2″ and 4-1/4″. Then you will need your “band” which hold down the sliding part of your card: 4-1/4″ x 3/4″.

The last card that I shared in the video was the Christmas Card that I created using the Penguin Pals designer paper … another Sale-a-bration item!! I want to remind you that our Sale-a-bration promotion ends in about 2 weeks … wow, that time sure flew by!

Thank you for stopping by and spending a part of your day with me. I hope the rest of your day is wonderful ~

Simply Sunday: Fun Fold Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Who said fun folds can’t be easy … Today’s fun fold is not a card fun fold but a Designer Series paper fun fold. You can do this technique with any of our designer papers and it is so beautiful when using the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper from Stampin’ Up!

The Beauty of the Earth is part of the Designer Series paper sale in which you can save 15% off select paper packs. This sale ends August 2nd … so only 2 days left to get in on this deal!

Today’s card showcases the “Peek-a-boo” Fun Fold …

You begin with an easy layout but the fun part is adding the 4 fold backs on the designer paper. The four designer paper pieces all measure 1-7/8″ x 2-1/2″.

Each piece of designer paper will be measured to 1″ from the “corner” that will be folded back, on each side of corner. (See Photo) I put a little “tick” mark at the 1″ point and then score from 1″ tick mark to the other 1″ tick mark. You won’t see the pencil marks because you are folding the corner back, but you can erase it if it bothers you.

Once you have all 4 of your designer paper pieces scored … secure the flap down, and then secure your pieces onto your mat. I used Basic White for my mat and it measures 4″ x 5-1/4″. The white allows me to stamp my greeting in the center and easily seen.

The “Happy Birthday” comes from the Peaceful Moments Stamp set … I actually just used this on my Starburst cards I shared the other day! I wanted to add some texture so I used the new In Color Square Gems in Misty Moonlight.

I think the Beauty of the Earth has so many fun patterns that can be used for this technique, and it’s gender neutral!! Yes, this little beauty would work wonderfully for a man or a women. The colors are stunning and the “gems” are not girly at all with the square, or should I say diamond shape!

Here are the Measurements for today’s card:

Card Base Night of Navy: 4 1/4″ X 11″ folded in half
Basic White: 4″ X 5 1/4″
Beauty of the Earth Designer Series paper: (4) 1 7/8″ x 2 1/2″. Score at 1″ and fold as shown above.

Thank you for joining me this Sunday. I hope the rest of your weekend is fun and relaxing. I am off with my daughter to see how much of Door County we can explore in one day!!

Drapery Fold Technique: Pansy Petals

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’ve got so much to share with you today! First, one of my favorite “Fold” techniques with two cards and a video! Plus, I’m using the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper that goes on sale tomorrow.

But before that starts I have one last reminder …. TODAY is the Last Day to purchase from the Jan – June Mini Catalog. CLICK HERE TO VIEW Save up to 50% on select items.

Sometimes we forget about Fun Folds or Techniques we used years ago but I have no problem bringing back the great ones, and the Drapery Fold card is one of those, and I’ve combined it with the Pansy Petals Designer Series paper ….

There are different dimensions for this fold out in the crafting world (I’ll share another with you tomorrow) Today I’m going to share the “full card” dimensions for the drapery fold. You’ll begin with a 11-1/2″ x 4″ piece of designer paper, then score at 3″ – 4″ – 6″ – 7″ – 9″ and 10″.

You will “cut” your paper from the bottom of the 3″ score line to approximately 1″ from the top of the right side of your designer paper. Your adhesive goes on 1″ folds (as shown in the video). DON’T throw away that piece you cut off …. because I’ll show you how to make a card with it ….

The layout of your drapery fold for the piece you cut off depends on the design … we had to make sure our daisies were facing the proper direction. With that being said, I added my adhesive and mounted it onto a piece of 3″ x 3″ white piece of cardstock… the Evening Evergreen mat is 3-1/8″ x 3-1/8″.

The pretty stripped background paper also comes from the Pansy Petals designer series paper, as does the cute little pansy I used to embellish my card. Now let’s check out that video ….

The video is from my Facebook LIVE last night … I hope you join me next Tuesday at 6:30 pm Central Time. It’s so much fun sharing; I just loved Beth’s idea of turning the small leftover piece into a gift tag! We learn more when we share our ideas, and my stampin’ friends inspire me all the time.

Just a few reminders before I go … Tomorrow is the LAST DAY for the Mini Catalog and then our Designer Paper Sale begins on Thursday, July 1st!

Thank you so much for hanging out with me today, and checking out my blog.

Have a wonderful day ~
