Ornate Thanks

Hi!  Today I am playing along with Kylie’s International Blog Highlights!  I had so much fun last month and decided to play along this month.

Our theme is once again Thanks.  With everything going on in the world today, it is extremely important that we show appreciation to those around us.

  Thanks, Oranate Garden, #2020AnnualCatalog, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #internationalbloghighlights

I first shared this style of fold back in August 2018.  I hadn’t used it since, and decided that this new suite (available now and debuting in the 2020 Annual Catalog) was perfect!

I love the Designer Series Paper and felt it made the perfect background for my card.   The flower is stamped with Early Espresso ink and colored with So Saffron and Old Olive markers.  The sentiment is stamped in Terracotta Tile ink.

The cardstock dimensions are:

  • Base:  Terracotta Tile – 4 1/4″ x 11″
  • Base Layers:
    • Early Espresso – 4″ x 5 1/4″ – need 2 (one for the front and one for the back)
    • Whisper White – 4″ x 5 1/4″ – (for the back)
    • Designer Series Paper – 4″ x 5 1/4″
    • Early Espresso – 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
  • Pop-out: Early Espresso – 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″
  • Pop-out Layers –
    • Terracotta Tile –  2 1/2″ x 3 1/4″
    • Whisper White – 2 1/4″ x 3″
  • Scraps for second part of sentiment and flowers

For the Base, score the 4 1/4″ x  11″ at 1/2″, 2″, 4″ and 5 1/2″

For the Pop-out, score the  2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ at 1/2″ and 2″ on the 5 1/2″ side

Here is the video (it is the second card) on how to put it all together.

A Daisy For You

or maybe two!  This past week in my Tuesday with Teresa segment on Facebook, I shared how to make these two fun Daisy cards.

Friend, Daisy Lane, Stampin' Up!, SU!, #2019AnnualCatalog, Fun Fold

First up is this fun front using Mint Macaron as my card base.  The Birch stamp gives a fun backdrop for my daisy and is stamped in Crumb Cake ink.  The Daisy is stamped on Whisper White scrap and die cut with the Stitched Square.  A second daisy is stamped on another scrap and punched with the Large Daisy punch.  The bee is from the Honey Bee bundle found in the Occasion catalog.  A little Wink of Stella on the flower center and the bee finish it off.

The second card is a design I came across by demonstrator Wendy Cranford.  This is called the Triple Flap Fold:

Birthday, Daisy Lane, Fun Fold, #2019AnnualCatalog, Stampin' Up!, SU!

I like different folds and openings and this definitely fit the bill.  The colors for this card are Early Espresso, Night of Navy and Soft Sea Foam.

I’ve created this PDF for the dimensions for both cards.

Here is the video where I make both:

And One More Fancy Fold

Hi!  Back today with another Fancy Fold featuring the other sheet of Designer Series Paper in the bulk package.

Fancy Fold, Magnolia Lane, DSP, #2020Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!, Forever Blossoms, Here's a Card

This fold, like the one on Wednesday, allows you to see both sides of the Designer Series Paper as well.  New for me, the use of Designer Series Paper as the base of the card.

For this card, I used a 5 1/2″ x 12″ piece of Designer Series Paper.  On the 12″ side, score at 1 3/4″, 4 3/4″, and 7 3/4″.   The measurements for the layers are:

Inside Whisper White Layer – 3 3/4″ x 5″
Mossy Meadow Mat – 2 7/8″ x 4 1/8″
Front Whisper White Panel – 2 3/4″ x 4″

The sentiment panels are die cut with the Stitched Rectangle dies.

The leaves are from the Forever Blossom stamp set and stamped in Mossy Meadow.

The two cards featured in posts this week are shown in this video from my Tuesday night Facebook Live:

Double Sided View

Hi!  Today I have a quick and easy fun fold that allows you to see both sides of our gorgeous Designer Series Papers!

Fun Fold, Magnolia Lane, DSP, #2020Occasions, Stampin' Up!, SU!

Isn’t this paper gorgeous?  Did you know you can purchase a pack of Magnolia Lane bulk Designer Series Paper – it features two of the sheets that come in the normal Designer Series Paper pack – but you get 10 of each sheet!  This is great for mass producing cards!

Ok, so, for this card, I cut a piece of Designer Series Paper 4″ x 5 1/4″.  On the 5 1/4″ side, I made a 1 1/2″ cut at  2 5/8″ (this is the center of 5 1/4″).  Then I scored from the upper right and lower right corners to the end of the cut line.  Fold back on those score lines and this is what you get!  The base of the card is Petal Pink – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ folded in half.

The butterfly is from the Positive Thoughts stamp set and is stamped in Petal Pink ink.  The coordinating dies will be available on Feb 4 – while supplies last and are called Nature’s Thoughts Dies.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Moments stamp set and is stamped in Mossy Meadow.

The sweet thing about this layout – it works with all of your Designer Series Papers!  Just pick your favorite and whip up some quick cards to have on hand!

I’ll share a video of how I made this card in a few days!
