Ink. Stamp. Share Monthly Blog Hop – Fancy Fold Cards

Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. I’m so glad you have stopped by my blog today. We’ve got lots of fun inspiration with our Fancy Fold theme.

I’ve got a lovely Fancy Fold card to share with you. It’s easy to create and looks great. We’re saying goodbye to Sale-A-Bration today so I gave the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper a grand send off on this card.

As soon as I saw this Fancy Fold on Satomi Wellard’s blog I knew I wanted to recreate it. It’s a variation of a Gatefold Card and so pretty.

Measurements

A4 Card base – 29.6cm x 21cm
Score at 7cm and 14cm from left and right (on the long side)
DSP 6.6cm x 20.6cm – 6 pieces (4 pieces in 1 design and 2 pieces in a coordinating design)

Once you get all your folds it’s a matter of adding Designer Series Paper as you like to decorate it. The Paper Blooms DSP is a free product which you can earn with a $90 order – but this offer ends today!

To attach the centre image which holds the ‘gates’ together, I added 3 Stampin’ Dimensionals right in the centre Seaside Spray panel (the part not covered by DSP). This allows the folds to tuck in nicely under the circle. The inner circle and leaves were die cut from one of the sheets of DSP which has circles on it (I did tell you I made maximum use of the DSP). I have just got the Pierced Blooms bundle and I’m loving the detail on it.

One thing you do need to pay attention to when adding all the beautiful flowers and leaves, that you only attach it to the circle. I got caught up in decorating and attached it to the flap and realized just in time that this wouldn’t allow the card to open!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this Fancy Fold and give it a try. I’d love to hear how you like it in the comments.

Ten Day Countdown to End of Sale-A-Bration – Day 1

It’s nearly over! Tomorrow is the last day to get in on the amazing offers Sale-A-Bration has.

I’ve created a card for sad occasions when there are just no words. Although not easy to create these, we need sympathy cards on hand to share our love with those who have lost loved ones.

The Oh So Ombre Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper has been die cut with the Stitched with Whimsy Dies to create a beautiful outline. Then I stamped the background with the leaf from the Corner Bouquet stamp set. This stamp set keeps giving and each time I find more creative ways to use it. I love a white background and the Parisian Flourish embossing folder, sponged with a light touch of Shaded Spruce creates a lovely soft background for the brighter DSP.

Beautiful Designer Series Paper that we all love – what do you do with all those scraps? I’ve got a fun card layout that uses Designer Series Paper scraps and creates beautiful cards. I’m using the gorgeous Berry Delightful DSP on my cards today. This paper is part of the Berry Blessings bundle and you can only earn it free with a $180 order until 28th February.

You need 4 pieces of 4cm x 4cm squares. That’s nice and easy 4x4x4! Then round 2 of the corners with the Detailed Trio punch. I mounted each of these pieces onto the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

An embossed white panel creates a simple and effective background for our quick and easy card. The sentiment from the Itty Bitty Birthdays stamp set has been punched out with the Classic Label Punch which is one of my favourites for creating really quick sentiments.
