Around the World on Wednesdays | Fancy Folds




Hello and welcome to my blog post for the Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop!

You may have hopped here from my friend Jan Clothier!

Each month this wonderful group brings you gorgeous projects to help spark your creativity. The participants live all over the world and love to get together each month for this fun blog hop.

This months theme is Fancy Folds! 

I have chosen the stunning Pansy Petals Designer Series Paper to create my Fancy Fold Card. This paper is just so beautiful, I could not resist using it for this months project. There are the most beautiful pansies on one side and gingham, stripes and polkadots on the reverse side. And this is just the Designer Series Paper.....wait until you see the Pansy Punch Bundle!!



  1. Start with a Polished Pink card base measuring 10.5 cm x 29.7cm. Score at 14.9cm then cut 7.5cm off the front of the card. The fold should be on the left hand side of the card
  2. Cut a piece of the DSP to measure 10cm x 14.3cm and glue to the back of the inside of the card
  3. Cut another 2 pieces of DSP to measure 10cm x 7cm and glue one to the front of the card. The other will get glued to the opening inside layer of the card as displayed below in image
  4. Cut another piece of Polished Pink card stock to measure 21cm x 7.5cm. Score and fold in half
  5. Using Tear n  Tape attach a long piece of Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon to the back of the card stock above ensuring that a 10cm end is on the left hand side of the  card stock
  6. Glue this Polished Pink layer on the back of the card with the fold on the right hand side
  7. Cut two pieces of Basic White card stock to measure 10cm x 7cm. Emboss one with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and glue to the front of the Polished Pink right hand opening layer and the plain piece of Basic White to the inside of the card as shown below
  8. Fussy cut the Pansy with stem and glue to the Basic White plain card stock inside the card
  9. Fussy cut the Pansy and leaf images from the DSP and arrange on the embossed layer and secure with dimensionals
  10. Stamp the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set in Versamark™ ink on Basic Black card stock then sprinkle White Embossing Powder over the top and set with the Heat Tool. Die cut with the Messages Die. Use dimensionals to secure to the bottom right hand side of Pansies
  11. Secure three of the In Colour Polished Pink Jewels around the Pansies
  12. Tie the ribbon in bow to close the card

  3. Stamp the images from the Enjoy The Moment stamp set in Smokey Slate, Soft Suede, Mint Macaron and Just Jade on a Piece of Basic White card stock then use the Stitched Rectangle die to cut three rectangles. Then fussy cut two of the images out to place above the sentiment. Glue the rectangles to the left hand side of the Smokey Slate 10cm x 14.3cm piece of card stock
  4. Run a piece of White Twine across the front of the card and secure at the back with Tear n Tape

The Stamping INKspirations Blog Hop Group love to hop together each month to inspire your creativity and showcase the wonderful products available from Stampin' Up!®. We are from all over the globe and love to connect each month for this blog hop!

This months theme is All Things Floral!

I have chosen the Timeless Tropical Bundle for my project this month. I really love the Hibiscus flower and wanted to use the new In Colour Pale Papaya for my Hibiscus flower. It is such a versatile colour and it is such a perfect addition to my Stampin' Blends collection. I have used a sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set but one from the Timeless Tropics stamp set would work perfectly too!

  2. Cut a piece of Crumb Cake card stock to measure 10cm x 14.3cm 
  3. Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 9.6cm x 14.5cm and emboss this with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and glue this to the Crumb Cake matt layer and then to the Pale Papaya card base
  4. Stamp the Hibiscus in Pale Papaya ink on Basic White card Stock. Colour in with Real Red, Calypso Coral and Pale Papaya Stampin Blends. Colour the stamen in with Mango Melody Stampin' Blends. Die cut using the coordinating die
  5. Stamp the three leaves in Old Olive ink on Basic White card stock and colour with Old Olive Stampin' Blends. Die cut using the coordinating die
  6. Stamp the sentiment from the Many Messages stamp set in Versamark™ ink on Basic Black card stock then sprinkle White Embossing Powder over the top and set with the Heat Tool. Die cut with the Messages Die. Use dimensionals to secure to the bottom right hand side of flower
  7. Arrange the leaves and Hibiscus on the bottom left of the card front and secure with dimensionals
  8. Select three of the Pale Papaya In Colour Jewels and place them around the flower
