Stampers Showcase Blog Hop - Fancy Folds


The lovely crew from the Stampers Showcase Blog Hop have been busy creating Fancy Folds for you this month. We have some amazing creations from the crew.

For my Fancy Fold I have made a triple fold card. I have made it in inches as I felt the card would look better wider and shorter. So I have made it in US letter size. 

  1. Start with a Thick Basic White card base measuring 11" x 5 1/2" 
  2. Score along the long side at 1 3/4", 5 1/2", 9 3/4".Fold the first score line to the left and back, the second score line is the centre fold of the card and the third to the left and back

  3. Cut a Belly Band in Basic White card stock to measure 1 1/2" x 10 1/2". Use the scallop die from the Hand Penned Petals Dies to create a scallop edge along both the 10 1/2" sides. You will need to place the scallop side of the die close to the edge and cut each side twice

  4. Cut two pieces of the floral Hand Penned DSP to measure 31/2" x 5 1/4" and 1' x 5 1/4". Cut one of the striped DSP to measure 1 1/2" x 5 1/4" 

  5. Glue the largest piece to the front of the card once folded in half. Pay attention to the direction of the DSP before gluing
  6. Glue the striped piece to the first flap folded back and the last floral piece to the last flap. Pay attention to the direction of the DSP before Gluing  Fold the card as seen in the second image below before proceeding

  7. Die cut a piece of Vellum Card Stock with the third largest circles
  8. Die cut the delicate floral image from the Hand Penned Petals Dies in Basic White card stock
  9. Fold the belly band around the card securing with Seal+ at the back. Stamp the sentiment on the right hand side of the front of the belly band in Misty Moonlight ink
  10. Glue the vellum circle to the right hand side of the belly band at the front. Glue the detailed die cut to the centre of the vellum circle
  11. Arrange three of the Pale Papaya Genial Gems on the front of the card

Colour INKspiration #108

Hello and welcome to my Colour INKspration blog post for the #108 Challenge.

This challenge we have a fun inspiration photo chosen by lovely crew member Rose Packer. 

Our guest designer for this challenge is Jessica Hart to make sure you head over at our Facebook Challenge Page to check out her beautiful project here. All the crews creations will be there too.

I decided to have some fun with the gorgeous colour palette and have created a Christmas Card for this challenge. I have made the card in inches to suit the large die cut.

  1. Start with a Coastal Cabana card base that measures 5 1/2 " x 4 1/2" scored and folded in half.
  2. Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to measure 5 6/18" x 4" and emboss this with the Merriest Frames Hybrid Embossing Folder
  3. Emboss and die cut another piece of Basic White card stock to measure 5 6/18" x 4" with the hybrid embossing folder and coordinating die
  4. Stamp the Sentiment in Coastal Cabana ink in the centre of the embossed and die cut piece
  5. Stamp the flower in Fresh Freesia with a Daffodil Delight centre, the two leaf sprigs in Daffodil Delight and Balmy Blue. Die cut with the coordinating dies and secure to the front of the embossed die cut layer using dimensionals
  6. Tie a 12cm piece of the Gold trim around the centre of the 5 6/18" x 4" embossed piece and secure to the back with glue dots. Tie another piece of gold trim in a bow on the right hand side of card front. Glue this layer to the Coastal Cabana card front
  7. Secure the die cut layer with the sentiment and die cut elements to the card front using dimensionals
