Halloween Theme for 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

Halloween Theme for 3rd Thurs Blog Hop

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I have a Halloween project to share with you for the October 3rd Thursday Blog Hop!  It is also a fun fold pop-up box card that really lets me show off the Halloween themed DSP from the Celebrate Everything DSP package that is currently a hostess item in the Fall Mini Catalog.  And before you ask, the die-cut sentiment came from the Word Wishes Dies which is retired! But I really wanted to use them.

Below is a full photo tutorial to show you the steps to create the box pop-up card.  And all the items I used to create it.  So take a peek and then leave me a quick comment on my project. Let me know if you like it or have any questions.  Then use this link to go visit the next paper crafter’s project. I’m sending you off to Kimberley enjoy!

Susan Webster - YOU ARE HERE!

 

Here’s a simple breakdown of the parts and pieces.  Don’t get stuck on my specific colors, or selections of papers and die-cuts.  Switch it up and make your own project with your favorite items.

Once you have your sections all prepared and ready you start to craft the base of the card which has a box fold element. Here are the steps to follow with the photos.

Next we need to attach the second box element to the top of the base.  It’s really half a box if you think of it, you are going to adhere the two ends to the base you've already formed.

Okay, now I did some coloring with my Blend markers to add some pop of color to the DSP, and die-cut my sentiments and add them to the project.

So, it’s a bit of work and paper folding with the section, but it really is a manageable fun fold project.  Is it something you will try yourself? Let me know.

And if fun-fold is something you are interested in learning more about take a look at my new Class in Mail offering that is completely focused on building and practicing fun-folds each month.  Here is the link for more information on that!

Leaf Fall - You Make My Life Happier

Leaf Fall - You Make My Life Happier

Hello my stamping friends.

You may remember that a few weeks ago I shared a Catalog CASE project with you from the CASE-ing Tuesday FB Group.  I really liked the layout, so I am using it again! I had lots of extra embellishments that I had previously cut from the Twigs & Sprigs Hybrid Embossing Folder, so I decided to pair them with the new Leaf Label elements and pull another fall card together.

Okay so here's the sketch breakdown again. You can see from my project, I kept it really close to the sketch.  I have a slightly larger sentiment label to fit my chosen sentiment.  And I used lots of die-cuts to fill in my background instead of using the 5 ½” x 2 ½” piece. Here is my full project breakdown for you.

Look closely, you will see that I dry embossed the card faze and the leaf label elements with the Leaf Fall Embossing Folder before I started.

I used the sentiment from the Very Best Occasion  stamp set, that is currently available in the Fall Mini Catalog.

Let me know what you think! Leave me a comment, ask a question or subscribe to my newsletter to see more of my projects.  Thanks for visiting my project today.

Happy Stampin,

Sketch Challenge - Inspirations Blog Hop Oct 2022

Sketch Challenge

Inspirations Blog Hop Oct 2022

Hello my stamping friends.

I’m so happy to be back and blog hopping with the Inspirations Blog Hop this month.  We have been presented with a sketch challenge, so there will be lots of variations shared as you hop along to all the paper crafters today.  Let’s start with looking at the sketch!

So when I look at a sketch, I think about how I can create a project that will follow the idea presented.  This one has three distinct sections in the background.  For me I decided to use DSP to create these sections.  Then we have the circle embellishment, for me I will use a circle die and then lastly an added sentiment on a banner. Here’s my take on this sketch!

Here’s my project, I am featuring the Celebrating Everything DSP that is the current Fall Mini Catalog Host Item.  So with a qualifying purchase you can add to your order with the earned hostess dollars. It certainly does have images and colors for all types of celebrations to craft with.  I used the Leaf Fall EF to dress up my die-cut circle element, and the Stylish Shapes Dies to create the sentiment banner.  The “hello “ comes from the Biggest Wish Stamp Set.  My cardstock and ink color match the Granny Apple Green in the DSP I selected.

Okay, here’s the full breakdown of the project.

Okay now it’s time to leave me a comment below, let me know what you think of this bright and cheery fall themed card for our sketch challenge today. So leave me a comment (it’s like getting a gold star for participation), feel free to ask a question, and you are also welcome to subscribe to my newsletter to see more of my projects.  

Then continue on your way to the next paper crafter in the blog hop today.  I will send you along to  Karen Henderson , and the full list of  crafters is here as well.  Enjoy the hop today and do some fun stamping of your own.

Awash with Beauty - Book Binding Fold

Awash with Beauty - Book Binding Fold

Hello my stamping friends.

Today we are going to create a simple Fancy Fold card with the Book Binding Template.  This is a cute and simple template to use, it is a standard size card and really just requires a second score line to create.  Check out the template.

Last week I used the Awash with Beauty DSP and found a design I really wanted to craft with, so today I am using that print.  I love the Merry Merlot blooms paired with the Calypso Coral blooms.  Then I decided to use the Designer Tags Dies to create my sentiment and embellishments. I love this quilted patterned tag die!  A little dyed ribbon with my Blend market and twine and I was ready to pull it all together.

I have a Stampin’ Show & Tell video you can view.  Watch me pull it all together for you and take you through the Book Binding Template as well.

Okay here is the sketch breakdown and the supplies I used.  Please consider placing an order with me either for stamping supplies in my Online Store or check out My Little Shop of Cards for actual cards I have made and have available.  Your support is greatly appreciated.

Rustic Harvest - Stand Up Fun Fold

Rustic Harvest - Stand Up Fun Fold

Hello my stamping friends.

Today I am sharing a fun fold card design with you and once again I am featuring the Rustic Harvest DSP. This card design was recently shared by Jackie Bolhuis in her monthly template tutorial class. I will share all the details with you for this one design in my blog today.  

First let me share the basic Fun Fold Design.  As you can see it is a standard sized card base with four score lines.  They are noted at the bottom of the photo here.  But if you score the 2” line and the 3 ⅛” line from one end, and then flip your base over and do the opposite end with the same measures you get the same result!  The score lines then get folded so that the center section is pushed out and the end sections are tucked behind.

So here is where I started and the steps I completed before I assembled the final project.

Start by scoring your card base with the template.  For my side panel I opted for embossed cardstock instead of more DSP panels, so I embossed a 3 ½” x 5 ¼” piece of Mossy Meadow in the Leaf Fall 3D embossing folder and then cut it into two panels to fit my card.

For the sentiment, I did something a little different, I made a prize ribbon!  I cut the standard wide banner die from the Stylish Shapes Dies in half and then added it to my circle sentiment label.

Once those steps were completed I just had to adhere it all together. I used the Mono-adhesive to add all the DSP and embossed panels, then dimensionals to add the sentiment ribbon.

So, let me know what you think! Leave me a comment, ask a question or subscribe to my newsletter to stay on top of the projects I am sharing.  Thanks for visiting my blog today.
