Corner Flip Card

Front Flip Card, Fancy Fold, Fun Fold, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop, May 2021, Stampin' Up!, SU

With so many Fancy Folds to choose from, I really didn’t have a favourite. However, I chose a simple design with a creative opening. The Corner Flip Card is so easy to make and involves two slits that form an L shape which, when flipped, create the interesting corner.

I’m making this card on my weekly Creative Escape tonight and it will be up on my YouTube channel tomorrow. I will post the link on here so you can see how it’s made.

I used the beautiful Pansy suite to create this card. The Vellum doily has been coloured with Light Soft Suede Stampin’ Blends to coordinate.

Neverending Card

Part of this challenge was to create a Fancy Fold which we had never tried before. Now, I have seen several Neverending or Infinity Cards but it has been on my ‘must try’ list. So this was the ideal opportunity. I got so carried away with the Snail Mail Suite that I forgot I needed to use In-Colours! Oh well…I hope you enjoy it anyway!

This card is made with 4 panels of cardstock 7cm x 14cm. Each one is scored on the long side at 3.5cm on either side. The diagram below shows the assembly of the panels. Once you glue all the panels together, you will have a 14cm x 14cm square.

The card then keeps flipping outwards to reveal many layers and surprises.

Esad Blog Hop – Farewell to the 2020 Annual Catalogue

Hello and welcome to Stamping Flair in Melbourne. I’m glad you are here and if it’s your first time here, I hope you find lots of inspiration to keep you coming back.

Today,I’m blog hopping with my demonstrator friends from the ESAD Facebook Group. We are sharing projects which will be farewelling products from the 2020-2021 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue.

ESAD Blog Hop, Farewell 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue, What is ESAD?

I’ve chosen the Seaside Notions stamp set and combined it with retiring and current product to create this beachy card. Every time there is a nautical or beachy stamp set, I always ‘need that’. So I’ve collected these stamp sets (a bit like collecting shells!).

The centre label was die cut with the Stitched Nested Labels Dies from one of the note cards in the Sweet Little Valentines Cards & More. This is one of the hidden gems in the current Mini Catalogue. The cards are printed on the front and back so you can stretch this out by cutting them in half to get more . You can see some other cards I made using this mini card pack here.

I stamped the sea horse and shells in Saddle Brown Stazon ink on Fluid 100 Watercolour paper. Then using Water Painters, they were coloured with Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral.

For the background I used the Emboss Resist Technique, heat embossing some of the coral with White Embossing Powder. Then I lightly blended some Coastal Cabana and Calypso Coral over this, rubbing back over the image with a tissue to show up the embossing.

The sentiment was stamped on the other half of the notecard in the pack.

New at su Blog Hop – Ride the Range

Welcome to our New at SU Blog Hop where pur projects are featuring products from the January – June Mini Catalogue.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

I have opened a new bundle for this blog hop – Ride the Range. When I first saw this in the catalogue I knew I had to have it. I just love all the farm, country style stamps. However, with so many beautiful products to play with, I’ve not had a chance to enjoy this set.

Ride the Range stamp set, Stampin' Up!, SU

I started by scoring a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock at 1/2″ and 1″ intervals. Then flipped the cardstock over so the opposite side of the scored lines were showing. Using my Cinnamon Cider ink pad, I ran the ink pad directly down the cardstock to create some wood-look streaks.

I used a combination of greens with Blending Brushes to create the grass which I adhered to a piece of Pool Party cardstock. This was then die cut with the circle die.

Now, I don’t use Cinnamon Cider as a card base much, as I find it a little heavy but I love the combination with Pool Party. I think everything works with Pool Party, don’t you? I stamped the sentiment on a piece of leftover cardstock from the grass which created a lovely ombre look.

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 2

LAST 2 DAYS TO GET A FREE PRODUCT WITH EVERY $90 ORDER

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.
