Stampin' Up! fancy fold Share What You Love suite card

Hello crafters. Happy Monday!

Today I have a fancy fold card for you. I was inspired to make this card when I saw a lovely sample my team member Ros Davidson shared on our team forum.

Stampin Up fancy fold 2018 Share What You Love suite card by Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

When the belly band comes off, the card opens to an area you can write your greeting.

The Share What You Love Designer Series Paper is perfect for this fancy fold, because it is cardstock weight. It also has beautiful patterns and lots of coordinating colours which makes it super versatile. The actual fold is super simple. Here is what I did:

  1. I started with a piece of DSP 12" x 6"
  2. I scored at 2", 4", 8" and 10" on the long side.
  3. I marked a spot with a pencil at the halfway mark of the shortest side (3")
  4. I cut on the diagonal from that spot on the left hand edge, to the top of the 4" score line, and from the top of the 8" score line to the half way spot on the right hand edge.
  5. Then just fold as shown. So easy!

I love the matching embellishments in the suite as well, because this makes getting a coordinated finish really easy.

Art With Heart Stampin' Up! Team New 2018 InColour Blog Hop

31369730_10215971459101948_1773093019549958144_n

 

Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects featuring Stampin' Up! In Colours. Check out the new 2018 - 2020 in colors and lets not forget the current 2017 - 2019 in colors. If you would like a copy of the 2018-2019 annual catalogue, contact any of the girls on the blog hop and we will get in touch with you.

You may have started here, or may have come here from the link on my lovely friend and team member Sharon Davern's blog.

For today's project I have made a set of 5 thank you cards using the new 2018-20 In Colours.  Left to right on the back row we have Blueberry Bushel, Pineapple Punch and Lovely Lipstick. On the front row (laying down) we have Call Me Clover on the left and Grapefruit Grove on the right.

Here's a closer look at the cards. The base card is a standard C6 sized Whisper White card (thick cardstock). The next layer is 9cm x 13.5cm piece of standard weight Whisper White, and I have adhered a 2.5cm x 13.5 cm piece of the InColour Designer Series Paper on the left hand side. I LOVE how we have 6x6" paper packs in each of the 2 InColour groups and each core colour group this year. I use these papers so much and they will be high on my shopping list.

I embossed (with the Lovely Floral 3D Embossing Folder) the whole second layer piece once the InColour paper was attached, and I really like how that turned out. I have used some of the coordinating InColour 1/8" Grosgrain Ribbon over the join of the paper and cardstock.

For my greeting, I stamped the 'thank you' greeting from the Stampin' Up! Love What You Do Stamp Set in each coordinating ink colour. This is die cut with the second smallest oval Stitched Shape Framelit. I also stamped one of the floral images in the Love What You Do stamp set on the front of each accompanying envelope.

The cards could be enclosed in an acetate or handmade card box to gift to the lucky recipient, but for these ones I just tied them together with some of our beautiful new 5/8" Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon (available in the new catalogue in Whisper White and Very Vanilla, but I have used Whisper White here).

Stampin' Up! Flying Home Stamp Set with Stampin' Blends

Today's shares feature some coloured images from the new Flying Home stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue. This is a super cute set of line drawn images which are just perfect for colouring.

Stampin Up Flying Home stamp set #occassions2018

I stamped my images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, onto Thick Whisper White cardstock as I planned to colour with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers. I used Light Old Olive, Light and Dark Crumb Cake, Light Pink Pirouette, Light and Dark Pool Party and Light Calypso Coral.

I did two different designs, with the coloured images cut out either with the circle or square Stitched Shape Framelits.

The diecut I have used is from the Petals and More Thinlit Dies.  I tried it in Soft Sky and Crumb Cake, but I think I like the Soft Sky versions best.

I did a bit of a watercolour wash in Soft Sky around the coloured image to soften some of the white space.

I wanted the coloured images to be the focus of these cards, so I just went for a really small simple greeting from the At Home With You stamp set. I love the font in the greetings in this set.

Stampin' Up! All Inclusive Lots of Happy Cardmaking Kit

All inclusive kits are one of the first things I always seem to be attracted to in new catalogues, and the lots of Happy Kit in the Stampin' Up! 2018 Occasions Catalogue is no exception. I think I love the kits because I can grab them and sit at the kitchen table, or even the lounge coffee table and have everything I need in the cute little box, rather than sitting away from the family while I craft. I also love the simplicity and the variety in the kits.

This kit contains everything you need to make 20 cards (envelopes included too) with 4 each of 5 designs. There is a full colour leaflet showing how each card is put together. It even includes the pencils for the colouring. You can also buy refills for the kits too.

Stampin' Up! Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - BigShot sandwich and tips.

Hello friends. Today I have a quick and easy card for you as I wanted to show you how amazing and  multidimensional the beautiful new Layered Leaves Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing folder is. You can find this folder on page 211 of Stampin' Up!'s new 2017 Annual Catalogue, or HERE in my Online Stampin' Up! Store.

  Stampin Up Layered Leaves Embossing folder and Label Me Pretty. 2017 Annual Catalogue. Claire Daly Stampin Up Demonstrator Melbourne Australia.

These folders are thicker than our standard embossing folders (to accommodate the extra dimension), so here are a few tips to get a great result:

  • Just use one sheet of cardstock and spritz each side lightly with water before you put it into the folder.
  • Set up your BigShot sandwich with the BigShot base plate on the bottom, the folder next (with the spine going into the BigShot first), and then just one acrylic plate on top.
  • Roll the folder through the BigShot one way, and then while the very end of the folder is still under the pressure of the BigShot roller, roll back the other way and out.
  • If you are inpatient like me, you can dry any remaining damp spots on the cardstock with your heat gun.

Stampin' Up! have got a great video on how to use these folders:

 

I love the variation in depth of impression this Layered Leaves folder gives and can see I will be using it on lots of projects. Doesn't it look amazing in the new Incolour Lemon Lime Twist?

I have used a few other of my favourite new Stampin' Up! products on this card too. The new Berry Burst ink and cardstock, the beautiful new Lemon Lime Twist ombre ribbon, the new Pretty Label Punch and the coordinating Label Me Pretty stamp set. You can link to all of these products in the online store using the individual links at the end of my post.

The Pretty Label punch and matching stamp set comes in a bundle too, so that you can save 10% on the combined individual price. There are a massive 23 bundles in this years catalogue - find them all HERE in the bundles section of the online store.
