Making a Fancy Fold Card using Stampin’ Up!® Products

Hello Everyone,

I’m not usually one for fancy fold cards, but thought I’d try something different to show you all today!

I call this a stepper card. There are a number of ways to make them with different score lines to create different sized panels.

I made my partial score lines at 1¼ and 2½ inches and cut at ¾ inches….

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

I used Misty Moonlight as the card base with the beautiful Hand Penned Designer Series Paper….

This is my original sample using some left over DSP from the recent Sale-a-bration event….

I fancied doing some colouring today, so I pulled out the Free as a Bird stamp set.

These are coloured to resemble Robins using Calypso Coral, Smoky Slate, Bronze and Ivory.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Here’s the original sample with the little birds coloured to resemble blue tits. For these I used Balmy Blue, Old Olive and So Saffron.

Simple Stamping with the In Bloom Stamp Set

Hello Everyone,

I’m using some favourites from the annual catalogue today for some simple stamping.

The beauty of this technique is that you can create the right background for your project!

I picked colours from the same colour family to work with. These are all from the Subtles! I’ve also pulled out my favourite Stitched So Sweetly dies too.

You can see how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Here’s the original sample using Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo and Daffodil Delight, all from the Brights family!

Stamping the sentiment a number of times with the Stamparatus intensifies the colour helping it to stand out from the background.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
