A Few Fun Folds

Say that a few times quick!  Today I have the cards I shared in my Facebook Live this past week featuring the Come to Gather Suite.   Being a big lover of fall, this set is perfect for me!

First up, we have this fun fold called the Joy Fold Card.

Joy Fold, Fun Folds, Come To Gather, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019HolidayCatalog

I just love the colors in the Come To Gather Designer Series Paper and used that for my color pallet on this card.

Here are the dimensions for each of the layers:

  • Base: Mint Macaron – 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ – score at 5 1/2″
  • Flap: Pretty Peacock – 3″ x 8″ – score at 4″
  • DSP 1:  5 1/4 ” x 4″
  • DSP 2: 2 3/4″ x  4″
  • Whisper White: 3 3/4″ x 2 3/4″ – need 2

Here is the card opened up:

The second card features the Overlay Fold:

Overlay Fold, Fun Fold, Come to Gather, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019HolidayCatalog

I had a lot of fun with the leaves in this card – I dipped the die itself onto the ink pad before running it through the Big Shot!

Here are the dimensions for these layers:

  • Base: Early Espresso – 5 1/2″ x 5 1/4″ – score the 5 1/4″ side at 1″
  • Overlay Panel: Early Espresso – 4″ x 4 3/16″
  • DSP: Come to Gather – 3 3/4″ x 3″
  • Whisper White: 5 1/4″ x 4″
  • Optional (not used in this card) for front: 3 1/2″ x 2 3/4″
  • Scraps: Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, Whisper White

Here is the video showcasing how both cards are made:

Hope you enjoyed these 2 fun folds today!

I Get By

with a little help from my friends.  Ok – did you sing it like I did?  LOL.  Couldn’t help it.  I saw this little guy in the Annual Catalog and he looked like he could use a little help.   Finally had a chance to play with him and wanted to share.

Back on Your Feet, Foil Embossing, Stampin' Up!, SU! #2019AnnualCatalog

Doesn’t he look like he could use a little help getting back on his feet?  I have a friend who underwent a heart transplant last week and thought this little guy might just cheer him up.    The turtle and sentiment are from the Back on Your Feet stamp set.

The background is the Noble Peacock Foil sheet measuring 3 3/4″ x 5″,  embossed with he Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder.  Isn’t that just perfect for this turtle?   Thank you to Gloria Plunkett for the great idea!

The turtle is stamped in Black StaZon ink and colored using Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen.  The Granny Apple Green and Garden Green pencils matched pretty well with the Old Olive Foil.

These are layered on Early Espresso card stock measuring 4″ x 5 1/4″.  The base is Thick Whisper White measuring 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″ and folded.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card!

I Am Over The Moon

to be back!  Sorry for the hiatus, but life was a bit crazy over the summer and I had to take a break from blogging.

Have you seen these cows? I am also Over the Moon for them!!  They are just adorable and so fun to play with!  Here’s a cute treat holder – thank you Kim Quade of Kim Plays with Paper for the adorable idea!

Treat Holder, Over the Moon, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019annualcatalog

And these Cow Tail candies are the perfect treat to go with this adorable guy!  The cow is stamped in Jet Black StaZon ink and the spots are colored with a Basic Black Marker.  To go with the candy, I added Pumpkin Pie for his bell, tail and the little tuft of hair on the top of his head.

The sentiment is stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink on Whisper White card stock and punched with the Classic Label punch.  This is layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock.   The topper itself is a 3 x 4 1/4″ piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock scored at 2 1/8″ and folded in half.

The treats are placed in a 3″ x 6″ Gusseted Cellophane bag.   These little guys are headed to a craft fair next weekend.
