Double Z Template - Fun Fold Tutorial

Hello my stamping friends.

Ready for another project featured for my Fun Fold Template classes?  This is the second tutorial for November.  It’s never too late to join the fun, get on my list for next month, or request this month’s edition in the mail.  Quick Links are on the sidebar here on the blog.

Okay, so today we are going to create a Double Z Fold Card.  If you signed up for my class in the mail, you already have a premade template to refer to.  You also have a pre-cut kit to do a practice card with.  So now you are ready to follow the tutorial video and get busy making your own cards.

Okay so I have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video for you to follow along with.  If you don’t have the mail from me, you can certainly take the time to cut your own supplies and make a template of your own.  Remember, you can subscribe to my YT Channel when you are watching the video so you will be notified when I share more projects.

Color | CAS for Inkspirations Blog Hop Nov 2022

Whimsical Wonderland for

Color | CAS Challenge for Inkspirations Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends.

Welcome to the Inkspirations Blog Hop for November!  This month we were challenged with a green theme and/or CAS.  Here is a look at the color options given and what CAS stands for.

COLORS:

  • Granny Apple Green

  • Soft Sea Foam

  • Pear Pizzazz

  • Garden Green

  • Evening Evergreen

  • Soft Succulent

  • The Neutral Color Family 

CAS : Clean And Simple

So first I thought about creating a CAS card, keeping the sketch simple with some layers and maybe a tag.  Then I decided I really wanted to use the Whimsical Woodland EF again. I really love the images, but have not used it often enough! So then I decided to just use two of the greens and I choose Garden Green and Soft Sea Foam.  So here is my simple sketch project!

But, then I really started to play with the project and ended up making five versions of the card!  I review them all in my Stampin’ Show & Tell Video Demonstration, while just making one of the versions in the video.  I hope you will take a peek and see them all, please give me a thumbs up on the Youtube video!  And you are welcome to subscribe to the channel as well.

So, what did you think?  Is it Clean And Simple (CAS)?  I would love to know what you think of the different versions of the project.  You can leave me a comment below here on the blog.  I also have the different card techniques in the Photo Tutorial below.

Okay, so it’s Blog Hopping time… please use this link to go visit Vickie Littlewood and then on to all the rest of the fun paper crafters that joined into the project making fun this month.  The full list of crafters and links are here as well.  Until next time, happy stamping.

CASE A Demo - Stamping with Friends Blog Hop

Art Gallery - CASE A DEMO!

Stamping with Friends Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends.

Today we have another Stamping with Friends Blog Hop and this time we were asked to CASE another Demo who has inspired us!  I immediately thought of Angie McKenzie, a  fellow blog hopper with this group.  Her projects always get me want to try something new and different from what I have done before or at least recently.  After nearly 20 years of crafting with Stampin’ Up! and being a demo for over 16 years, I’ve done a lot!  So new or renewed inspiration is always fun.

Okay, so today the project basically breaks down to stamping your own DSP or patterned paper.  But here are the twists for this project:

  • Starting with an 8 ½ x 11 piece of cardstock

    • (I usually think of patterned paper as 12 x 12).

  • Leaving open white space on the cardstock

    • I usually think to fill the whole sheet, maybe leaving open space between images, but not much!

  • Stamp similar but not identical patterns with your stamps.

    • Shoot for unique instead of repeated patterns.

  • Cut that 8 ½ x 11 sheet of cardstock into 5 card fronts!

    • Awesome idea!!!! Create unique but similar projects.

    • Great for a set of giftable cards!

Okay, so this is the post that Angie shared with the Blog Hop last month.  You can visit it with this link to see the way she breaks it all down! https://www.naturesinkspirations.com/2022/10/stamping-with-friends-christmas-card-blog-hop.html  Here are a couple of the photos.

5 unique but similar cards!

 

Stamped 8 ½ x 11 sheet of cardstock.

Okay, so here is my project for today’s blog hop!  Ready?   

5 unique but similar cards!

Stamped 8 ½ x 11 sheet of cardstock

Here is my Stampin’ Show & Tell video.  I take you through the stamping of the project and how I divided it all up to craft the 5 cards.  Then I show off the first set of 5 cards that I finished with sentiments, embellishments and stamped center panels.

Below you will see all the projects in photos if you are interested in more details or specific samples.  Just keep scrolling down past the NEXT BLOG section of this post. Hope you enjoy this video and then enjoy the rest of the Blog Hop projects today as well.

Hinge Template - Fun Fold Tutorial

Hello my stamping friends.

And so it begins… the Fun Fold Template classes I have started to offer either on a month by month basis or a 6 month subscription.  This month I am hosting two templates, this one today, the HINGE TEMPLATE and then another to follow with the DOUBLE Z TEMPLATE.

The idea of the class is that you receive a premade template with all the measurements and a printed tutorial in the mail.  Along with a pre-cut practice kit of supplies.  Then you watch the tutorial video and follow along and make your practice kit.  It’s nice to have a premade template so you can open and fold and look at the way it will all come together.

If you are interested in joining the fun, and would like to receive a class kit in the mail, just contact me by email and we can get you started.  And yes, you can request previous editions of the class for templates.

Okay so I have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video for you to follow along with.  If you don’t have the mail from me, you can certainly take the time to cut your own supplies and make a template of your own.  Remember, you can subscribe to my YT Channel when you are watching the video so you will be notified when I share more projects.

Christmas Pinecones for FMS 561

Christmas Pinecones for FMS 561

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I was inspired to play along with the Freshly Made Sketch Challenge after seeing a sample project shared by a demo on their design team, Jennifer Brum.  Here is the sketch that the blog shared as their challenge and then also Jennifer’s project.  Both can link to the original posts.

BLOG LINK - CHALLENGE

Shared by Jennifer Brum

 So I happen to have this DSP - Painted Christmas and it is one of my favorites. I am so happy it returned from last year's holiday catalog.  And I have the Christmas Pinecone Dies set that I just have not used enough. So I am going to CASE Jennifer’s project but use the pinecones as my focal point!

I use the DSP pattern that features the pinecones images and create the greenery and die-cuts using coordinating colors.  Here is my Stampin’ Show & Tell video for you to follow along as I craft the card.
