New at su Blog Hop – Fun Fold

Welcome to our New at SU Blog Hop where we are showcasing new In-Colours through Fun Fold cards. Two days running I’ve had this theme in a blog hop. Quite a coincidence. So you’re getting heaps of Fancy Fold inspiration.

New at Su Blog Hop Header

I tried a Double Fan Fold Fancy Fold card for the first time, following a tutorial by Tina Shaw. Although it looks complicated, it all comes down to some nifty scoring.

New In-Colours of Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Pale Papaya were used on this card. The Hand Penned Designer Series Paper works well with our new colours.

Although this card looks quite complicated, it all comes down to some nifty scoring.

Get your fingers round the Mountain and Valley Folds and it’s really an easy card to make.

I used the beautiful Hand Penned suite, including a piece of card from the Memories & More Cards and Envelopes as a border.

The flowers were coloured in a combination of Stampin’ Blends.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Please leave me a comment and I hope to see you back very soon.

Make sure you stop by all the other blog hop participants for lots of ideas on your next fancy fold card. Next on our hop is the talented Annette Elias.

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!

Neverending Card, Infinity Card, Around the World on Wednesday Blog Hop, Awow Blog Hop, May 2021, Snail Mail Suite, Stampin' Up!, SU

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.

Ink. Stamp. Share Blog Hop – Thinking of You Card

It’s time for the Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop with my favourite – a sketch challenge for this month.. By having a sketch, it takes away you having to work out a design style. You can then have fun picking out all your paper and embellishments to suite the sketch. For this blog hop, a few changes could be made while the basic layout remained the same.

Ink Stamp Share Monthly Blog Hop Header

For my card, I wanted to use some of our retiring products. Retiring products are available while stocks last. You can find available products here.

I’ve chosen the Flowers for Every Season Memories & More cards which offer options for scrapbookers as well as cardmakers.

Flowers for Every Season Memories & More Card Pack

I flipped the sketch so it was vertical and added my sentiment to the label.

Ink Stamp Share Blog Hop, April 2021, Sketch Challenge

To start off with, I embossed a panel of Just Jade Cardstock with the Subtle 3D Embosssing Folder which is retiring. This is going to stay in my stash as I love the simple texture of it.

The Under my Umbrella stamp set offers cute images and these galoshes have got to be my favourite in the set. I stamped 2 pairs on True Love Designer Series Paper and coloured them with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends.

Then I heat embossed the images with Clear Embossing Powder 3 times. I suggest heat embossing before fussy cutting as this gives you a larger piece of paper to hold onto when using the Heat Tool. The second shoe was layered for dimension.

The label was punched out 3 times – Memories & More card, Just Jade and Bumblebee Cardstock – and layered by cutting in half and attaching to the back.

New at su Blog Hop – Techniques with Retiring Stamps

It’s technique time at the New at SU Blog Hop and our projects will feature retiring stamp sets to showcase our chosen technique. I’m sharing the Reverse Masking technique which is an easy technique and lots of fun to create.

New at SU Blog Hop, Header

For instructions on how to create this please click here. I used my Blending Brushes to colour the centre with Granny Apple Green and Coastal Cabana. Keeping the mask in place, I placed one of our Decorative Masks over die cut space. I added Coastal Cabana over this to create a pattern within the blended space.

Colour Combo Blog Hop – Silhouette Scenes

Welcome to our March Colour Combo Blog Hop. As I saw this colour palette, I was reminded of a sunset and I wanted to recreate on my card for this hop.

The Silhouette Scenes stamp set and coordinating Sweet Silhouette Dies immediately came to mind for the backdrop I had envisioned. I used my Blending Brushes to blend a background on Basic White cardstock with Mango Melody, Petal Pink and Terracotta Tile.

If you haven’t tried the Blending Brushes, I highly recommend them as they blend so beautifully and seamlessly. They are soft to touch and sturdy. For $21 you get 3 brushes so they are really great value. You can rinse them under warm water, air dry and use them again.

The idea was to emboss the little girl on the swing directly onto my blended background. However, things didn’t quite go to plan as my embossing refused to cooperate. So I worked around it. I cut a strip of blended piece of cardstock as I didn’t want to waste it. The beautiful Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper has a sheet which blended with the colours of this challenge and that provided the background for my strip of blended cardstock.

The girl on the swing was inked up in Versamark ink then immediately in Tuxedo Black ink. Then I stamped the image on the DSP. Clear Embossing Powder was added over this and heat set. I really love this nostalgic image and the sentiment that goes with it.

All Dressed Up

Over the years we’ve had the maxi, the midi, the mini, floral, plain, straight cut, flared, dresses in every style. Do you have a favourite dress style? National Dress Day was today and it seemed like the ideal time for me to dress these ladies from the Hey Girlfriend stamp set.

They are so much fun to colour in and I’ve had a bit of fun trying to come up with different skin tones. I was trying to match the first girl’s skin tone with mine! I reckon I came pretty close with a combination of Ivory, Light and Dark Crumb Cake and Light Cinnamon Cider Stampin’ Blends.


Her hair was a combination of Dark Crumb Cake and Bronze.

The next girl’s skin tone is Ivory and for her hair I combined So Saffron, Bronze and some Dark Crumb Cake.

I gave them some sparkly shoes with Champagne Shimmer Mist using a Blender Pen. Elements from the Love You Always suite add some contrast and focal elements to these cards.

This stamp set is perfect for sharing some love with your girlfriends. Orders can be placed online or by calling me or texting me on Ph: 0404 255 001. Get a free pack of Butterfly Gems with orders placed until 7th March over $100. For a simplified ‘one click’ process, click on the button below.
