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….

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.

Ink Stamp Share – September Colour Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my blog this afternoon… Today I’m hopping with a whole host of crafters from all over the world.

Please be sure to pay them all a visit and leave some encouraging comments!

How can I resist a colour challenge! The hop this month is challenging creators to use this gorgeous palette!

I decided to work with florals. One of favourite bundles this year is Flowers of Friendship… Perfect for this challenge.

The subtle Petal Pink and Soft Sea Foam provided a soft back drop to the deeper colours I used as the focal point of the card.

Wink of Stella glitter and basic rhinestones add some sparkle too.

This was my original sample as another idea of how these colours can be used together.

I’ve made a simple set of Halloween greeting cards using the Cute Halloween designer series paper.

The monochromatic design allows some freedom to add some fun colours as accents.

In this case I’ve used Highland Heather to stamp the greeting and little bats from the Little Delights Stamp Set.

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

The Highland Heather ribbon adds texture and helps tie together the overall design.

I made these samples with the other multi coloured side to the papers.

This time I stamped the sentiment in Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive and used the black and white gingham ribbon.

I hope you enjoyed this project.
