Fun Fold Cards

Flip Up & Flip Out Fun Fold

This is a fun fold card that we made last night during our Virtual Mystery Card Night!

I was determined to find a way to keep connected back in March when the lockdown was in place. My teammate and I started these virtual classes via Zoom and they have been a great addition to the classes I offer! It is great to see people that are far away or need to be more careful about where they go for personal reasons. If you are looking for an engaging and silly group of ladies to craft with virtually, we are here for YOU!

What is a Mystery Card Night? I make a card-so far they have been fun folds-and then I craft up a Power Point to share with everyone. You use your ink, paper, stamps, and embellishments that you have on hand. (doesn’t have to be current or SU) I send the Zoom meeting ID and the suggested items to have on hand to those that RSVP. I love seeing what everyone creates by the end of the class! We have a contest on my Laura’s Creative Corner FB page for a fun prize! Check my list of events for the next one! (usually once a month) We would love to have you join us!

This was a Flip Up & Flip Out fun fold that I found on On Y Go! Stamping! I loved how simple it was to follow her tutorial and how everyone would have items at home to create this for our class! The following are from her blog-why reinvent the wheel? She did a great job with these visuals!

After scoring and cutting the 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock-the rest is really just coordinating your patterned DSP with your other items. Here are the measurements I sent to the ladies that join us Friday.

Card Base: The base will be an 8 ½” x 11” piece of cardstock

Insert: light color to write on; cut one 4” x 5 ¼ ”

Card Front: Pick a color that coordinates with your DSP; cut to 4” x 5 ½ ”

DSP:  (2) pieces of one design cut 1 7/8” x 5 ½” & (2) pieces of another coordinating design cut to 1 7/8” x 5 ½”

Other pieces:  Scraps for sentiment, labels, little extras

•One set or two stamp sets •Embellishments, dies, punches, and inks of your choice •Tape, glue, dimensionals, scissors etc.

Here is a quick peek inside my card that I made! I love this Gilded Autumn Suite! The Gilded Autumn DSP has the most beautiful colors and metallic pops of color! It also includes the elegant Beautiful Autumn stamp set, coordinating Autumn Punch Pack, super sweet Acorn Trinkets, and coordinating Basket Weave & Metallic Ribbon combo pack!

Quilt Cards Made Easy

I was inspired by Patty Bennet’s Postage Stamp punch cards a few days ago! I grabbed my Postage Stamp punch and started punching DSP! I laid it out on a 3 3/4″ x 4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the NEW Stamp-Cut-Emboss machine (SCEM) with the Dainty Diamonds Embossing folder! The finished product reminded me of a quilt! This is going to be our technique for stamp club for September!!

TIPS:

  1. Center your punched shapes first and then arrange the others around it.
  2. Let some of the shape over-hang- you can always trim it with your Paper Snips.
  3. Adhere the shapes to the Whisper White base before running it through the die cutting machine.
  4. Use a glue dot to hold down your knot before you finish your bow.

Here is a close up of the detail that the Dainty Diamond Embossing folder makes after you run the whole piece through! I cut a piece of Gold Foil using the small scalloped die from the Little Treat Box Dies. I stamped the saying from the Wrapped in Christmas set and punched it out with the 1 1/2″ circle punch.

Card Dimensions:

Garden Green cut a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″ (A2 size); Real Red 4″x 4 1/4″; Whisper White 3 3/4″ x 4 1/4″; Gold foil scrap; Whisper White scrap; Tis’ the Season 6×6 pack (3 designs)

This is a super quick and great card to make multiples of for Christmas Cards! Click on the products below to order your own! Be sure to get this month’s Free Card Kit with the purchase of the Nothing Better Than Bundle! Read all about it here!

Is your wish list too long?? Consider signing up for our Crafter’s Corner team! No need for classes or events (though I provide Zoom meetings for those that want to take it to the next level). Just use it for the discount! And this month there are extra perks that Stampin’ Up! has added!

This is on top of the $125 in the product of your choice!! Just $99 plus tax!

In addition to the regular starter kit (for $99 USD, new recruits choose $125 USD-worth of products) new recruit will also receive enough cardstock pieces to make 16 cards, a pack of Rhinestone Basic Jewels, the So Much Love stamp set, and the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set—all for their first event. (I am here to help with that as well! Or use it for your own personal use!)

No risk! No penalties! Just give it a test drive! We would love to have you join our circle of friends!

Blessings,

Laura

Sweet & Simple Christmas Coffee Card

I am a Starbucks addict-and I mean to the point that I’m friends with my baristas on Facebook! So you can imagine my excitement when I saw the new Press On stamp set in the Holiday Catalog! To add to this adorable set, there is also the Heartwarming Hugs suite! This suite has mini coffee cups & carriers, sweet adornments, gorgeous DSP, 2 stamp sets, and coordinating dies! The Warm Wraps dies help you create a variety of coffee cup wraps! I have seen some cute cups and cards embellishments created with the Festive Felt Sheets that are in the Holiday Catalog! (Sorry, this is my favorite season and I get a little giddy seeing all bright shinny things!)

So to create this card, I used a layout in the Holiday catalog and changed up the paper, stamp set, and colors. It’s a great way to get out of a creator’s block! I used a Crumb Cake card base and then ran a 2 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ piece of Real Red through the Stamp-Cut-Emboss Machine with the Wrapped In Texture Embossing folders. The patterned paper is from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP and is cut a to 3″ x 4 1/2″. I then cut a banner edge to create some visual interest.

I stamped the coffee cups on a 1 1/2″ x 4″ Whisper White piece with Memento Black and used my Blends to color in the cups. There is a Red Rhinestone in the center of the heart on the center cup. (Blends used: Real Red combo, Old Olive combo, and Crumb Cake combo) I stamped the sentiment from the Warm Hugs stamp set on a scrap of Crumb Cake and used the Classic Label punch to create the shape. I loved the stitching from the ribbon that is from the Playful Pets Trim combo.

There is still time left to use this month’s host code to grab some goodies to create with! Shop now by clicking the button below!

Have a blessed week and thanks for stopping by!

A Guide to the Peony Dies

When I saw the Annual Catalog for the first time back in May, I immediately was drawn to the Prized Peony Suite! The colors are soft, the flowers are so elegant, and the embellishments finish off your projects in a snap! Who wants easy coordination when they are creating their cards or pages??

A couple girls and I went to a retreat in July and I made at least 10 of these peony flowers! But, I admit that I was intimidated by the dies when I pulled them out. Once they came together, I decided to share how to make them! They are really easy and very addictive!

Check out the detail in this up close picture of the flower that I made! To create a more distressed flower, you just take your Water Spritzer and dampen your cardstock a little. Then crumple it into a ball and then flatten out. You can now run this cardstock through the Stamp Cut and Emboss machine and continue making your flowers!

I hope you enjoyed the video and will subscribe to my channel for more exciting, unique, and intriguing techniques!

Fun with Embossing Paste &Masks

This is one of those cards you just start to play with something new and then the pieces just come together! I made this when we were on our retreat in July! (small group and we had plenty of room between us)

It started with the Embossing Paste and Basic Pattern Decorative Masks. To create the color in the Embossing Paste, I used Highland Heather ink refill. The Palette Knives help scoop, mix, and spread your new colored Embossing Paste onto your project! Spreading the paste on to a piece Whisper White Thick card stock helped due to the weight of the paste.

I distressed the sides of the Whisper White with Highland Heather ink and a
sponge to help blend the layers.

TIP: Be sure to have a small pan of water ready to place your masks and tools into immediately. I helps the paste clean right off before it has a chance to dry.

I also played with the new Prized Peony Bundle! OMGEEEE! I LOVE the Peony Dies!! I spritzed my paper with a Stampin’ Spritzer and water to moisten the paper fibers. Next, I crumpled the paper and flattened it back out before I ran it through the Stamp, Cut, & Emboss Machine (SCEM). (yes—-Mine arrived yesterday!! SOO happy! I plan on doing a FB live about it this week!)

I then took a sponge and some Highland Heather ink to distress each petal piece before I assembled them.

I had cut out some sunflowers from the Sunflower dies to create other projects. I had 2 Whisper White ones left and a center cut out, so I decided to distress them a little bit with the Highland Heather. To finish off this card, I added a Gold Foil cut out from the Birds and More dies.

Many blessings to you and yours!

Laura

NEW! Monthly Virtual Class-Whale Done

I have been brainstorming ideas that can satisfy our creative outlet without risking getting too many people together. I tailored this class from my Zoom Mystery Classes that have been a hit! And a more simplified club type of class that I usually hold here in my home.

My goal was to have you choose if you want to use your papers/inks/embellishments OR add some items to your bundle order. I was keeping the cost factor in mind as well. I will make a power point and a PDF on how to make the cards.

During our class, I will share the screen so everyone can see the instructions. Plus I will be right there to help out as well!

Class size is limited to 8 on Zoom (I can always add another date)

Creating Card Backgrounds with Salt

My son camp home with the most stunning art project on canvas! They used salt and water to create a whimsical background! Well you know I had to try it for my card club technique! I included a video for this to help you create your own background!

I did a few test pieces on the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. The first one I followed the directions from a video on SCS. It does make a nice background, but I was looking for more motion in my background. I knew I was going to use the Whale Done bundle, so a sea bed with a sense of waves was perfect! I used more water on mine after I applied the sea salt.

I love the Shear Pool Party Ribbon!

I am SOOOOO excited about the new Water Painters! There are 3 differnt sized brushes in each pack! Small tip, broad tip, and and brush tip! It makes these water color washes so much easier to create! I used a acrylic block to drop my re-inkers on to like a mini palette. The Stampin’ Spritzers are wonderful because their spray comes out a fine mist.

Be sure to subscribe so you get notified on all my tutorials!

Simple Peony Card

The NEW Prized Peony suite is just gorgeous! The Peony dies make realistic peony paper flowers with ease. The Prized Peony set has simple sentiments, detailed stamps, and a touch of background whimsy! The colors in the suite are create a soft feel- Petal Pink, Whisper White, Gray Granite, and Basic Gray.

To make this super easy card, you will fold a piece of Gray Granite (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) card stock and crease it with your Bone Folder. Next, stamp the grunge diamond pattern randomly with Gray Granite ink (stamped off once) onto your card stock base. Then stamp the larger peony on a piece of Whisper White (4 1/4″ x 3 1/2″) using Petal Pink ink. There is a scalloped border in the Peony Dies set that I used to cut the Whisper White piece at the bottom. Then take a piece of the Peony Garden DSP cut @ 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ and adhere that to your card base. Place Dimensionals on the back of the Whisper White piece that has the peony stamped on it and adhere that on the card base. Next, you will fold a 4″ piece of the Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Striped Ribbon in half and adhere to the card with Glue Dots. Chose your sentiment and shape to finish off your card! I used the die from the Perfect Parcel to cut out a sentiment in this set.

This is the LAST week to get your Bonus Days coupons! (July 31st) For every $50 you spend, Stampin’ Up! will email you a coupon code to use in August! You can’t go wrong-the Holiday Catalog starts August 4th!!

How to Make a Beautiful Background using Bubbles

I have seen the Bubble Background Technique before and I saved it to a private board-a few years ago! So, I finally decided to give it a whirl! This was so much fun, and a little messy! I really did feel the enjoyment of my childhood when we would blow bubbles outside!

I made a video for you to learn how to create these whimsical backgrounds for your cards or pages! (excuse this one, it’s with my new equipment, I was a little giddy! And the video is not centered. Eh, whatcha gonna do?)

This is one of those sets that you need to keep so you always have accents at your fingertips! I can see home décor, scrapbook pages, cards, kids project, and so much more!

A few quick tips:

1. Dish soap and water do not yield great results.

2. I used a bendy straw so I didn’t accidentally blow on the wrong end and have inky lips.

3. Be sure to keep the paper away from the top of your container-it will leave a circle.

4. The lighter your ink color, the more drops you will need.

The Gold Cord in the Forever Greenery ribbon combo pack frays simply! Love the light touch!

I would love to see your creations! You can purchase the items used to make this card from the list below. It’s Bonus Days through the end of July! For every $50 you spend, you will get an email from Stampin’ Up! with a $5 off your purchase in August. I have 8 already-crazy!

Many blessings to you and your family!
