Project Share Project Blog Hop – Fancy Fold Card

Good Morning Everybody,

Welcome to this month’s Project Share Project blog hop.

Links the other Project Share Project Fancy Folds are below, or use the next button at the bottom of this post!

Gez Carpenter: Nigezza Creates

Heather Forgan: Stamp With Nellie

Jill Chapman: Paper Daisy Crafting

This month’s theme really got me thinking….. Many of you will know I’m not one for anything fancy, but nevertheless, I have managed to make this card!

Measurements (inches):

Whisper White Base card 5-7/8 x 6-1/4 scored on long side at 4-1/8

DSP 5-3/4 x 4 and 2 pieces 5-3/4 x 2

Whisper White Inner card 5-3/8 x 7-1/4 scored on long side at 3-5/8

DSP 3 pieces 5-1/4 x 3-1/2

If you are using the Stitched So Sweetly dies to add panels, you will also need to cut 4 pieces of DSP 3-5/8 x 2-1/2

You can see how to make this card in my video tutorial….

I love how the different designer series papers work together!

The inside portion folds out. Leave a panel blank for your own handwritten message!

The little bit of extra stamping around the main greeting adds interest without adding bulk.

Do More with Designer Series Paper

Hello Everyone,

Let me ask you… Have you got Designer Series Paper in your stash that you just don’t like? I mean, I know it’s rare but maybe it’s just not your favourite colour.

Have you considered stamping on it? Or even heat embossing it like I have today?

This simple modification has turned what could have been a very plain card in to something more interesting.

See the whole process in my video tutorial….

The Artistry Blooms sequins tone in to the colour of the paper beautifully.

Here are the original samples. The blue version used clear embossing powder, but I felt it didn’t have as much impact as the white.

I’d love to know if you give this a try!

Monochromatic Cards featuring the Lovely You stamp set

Hello Everyone,

Today’s project demonstrates that beautiful cards can be made with limited supplies.

Monochromatic designs can still have depth and interest by using second generation ink, blending and layering.

The stamped border has been heat embossed to add texture, but this step could be left out!

See how I made this card in my video tutorial….

Here is my sample made with Just Jade.

The sentiment could be punched or cut down with a paper trimmer.

Tell me which is your favourite and if you try this I’d love to see them!

Hello Everyone,

I made this card ages ago and completely forgot to share it!

I have to different ink blending methods to create this project.

I also used the amazing Tropic Chic stamp set which is sadly retiring. To achieve the gradient colour on the leaves, I used the Stamparatus tool, inking and stamping each image twice.

Beautiful Bouquet vs Colourful Seasons

Hello Everyone,

Today is the final day of my doubling up week, I hope you have liked what I have sharing with you.

For this post I am using the same colour combo with two different stamp sets!

The first uses Beautiful Bouquet and the coordinating dies.

I started with a Grapefruit Grove card base and added layers of Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White card stock.

Flowers and leaves were stamped and die cut ready to add to the card. The sentiment was stamped with Soft Suede ink and die cut using the Stitched So Sweetly die set.

The elements were adhered to the card with dimensionals and a small bow was added.

My second card uses the same colours, but uses the Colourful Seasons stamp set instead. I do use the coordinating dies too but these are no longer available.

See how I created this card as it happened in the video below:

Peacock Duo

Hello Everyone,

This week I’m doubling up! Two cards each day with the same or similar products!

Today, it’s the Royal Peacock stamp set and matching dies with Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel retiring In Colours.

For the first card, the peacock was stamped with the assistance of the Stamparatus, first with Blueberry Bushel for the head and body and Call Me Clover for the tail.

The details were heat embossed with copper powder, (also retiring), and then die cut.

Some additional feathers were die cut to embellish the sentiment. This was stamped with Blueberry Bushel ink and cut with the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

The second card is completely different!

Four large feathers were die cut from Blueberry Bushel card stock and adhered together to form an oval-ish shape.

Stitched Square dies were used to cut the green frame and the stamped sentiment.

A few rhinestones added some extra interest to the background.

With Deepest Sympathy

Hello Everyone,

It is a sad reality that not all the cards we make and send are for happy events. There is comfort however, that even at these sad times, a beautiful handmade card can be created.

I used a simple layout, starting by stamping a Whisper White card panel with an image from the Verdant Garden stamp set and Smoky Slate ink.

The panel was layered with Basic Grey card stock and some Polka Dot Tulle was wrapped around the middle. This was adhered to a white card base with dimensionals.

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments set and was stamped with Smoky Slate ink. This was then die cut and also added to the card with dimensionals.

I hope you enjoyed this project. The supplies used are listed and linked to the online store below.

Blue Tiles

Hello Everyone,

Photopolymer stamp sets are so easy to use, especially when lining up images like this.

Here I have used the Verdant Garden stamp set to create this tile effect.

Again, j am using up some remaining Blueberry Bushel card stock for the card base.

Balmy Blue ink was used first, stamping the image across a white layer. Blueberry Bushel ink was used fill in the gaps with the compliment image from the set.

Polka Dot Tulle, (not retiring!), was added around the layer before adhering it to the card base.

The sentiment was taken from the Honey Bee stamp set and cut with the smallest Stitched So Sweetly die, (also staying!).

I hope you enjoyed this project.
