Inspire.Create.Challenge 057 | Christmas Time Fancy Fold

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is Fancy Folds! I LOVE a fancy fold project, and cannot wait to see what everyone creates…. particularly as I’m in a bit of a creative rut at the moment, and could really do with a fast injection of inspiration to make my Christmas Cards!

Fancy Fold Christmas Card using Most Wonderful Time from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

The Most Wonderful Time Suite is just stunning, and comes all together in one complete kit (you just need to add Card Stock and Ink!), and it makes really cute and quick cards.

I’ve also added a Stitched Oval from the Stitched Shapes Dies as a simple background for that lovely tree stamp.

I finished the card with 5 of the self adhesive stars that comes in the Most Wonderful Time suite, and a simple sentiment

Four All Seasons Joy Fold Birthday Card

Hello! Can you believe we are almost at the end of Sale-a-bration 2019… in fact we only have another few days as the fabulous offers end on Sunday night!

To see what Sale-a-bration is all about check my earlier blog post HERE!

Today’s card is a card I made a few weeks ago for one of my Sister-in-Law’s birthdays. I needed something a little bit special, because with my current Baby Brain actually getting around to buying her a present didn’t happen (she did get a gift card though so she can treat herself to something), and so I reached for the very lovely Painted Seasons stamp set, Designer Series Paper and coordinating dies.

Joy Fold birthday card using Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up! with StampinByHannah

I have been loving using these stamps and the Designer Series Paper which you can get as a bundle for FREE with a £90 order, and then the dies that match are just a must have!

This is a really easy Fancy fold card to put together. You can find all the measurements on THIS blog post from a couple of years ago.

Then on the inside I made a little Designer Series Paper pocket to hold the gift card, simply by measuring the gift card and chopping a bit off the top. I did use a 2″ circle punch to notch the top of the pocket and make retrieving the gift a little easier too!

There isn’t a whole heap of stamping on this one really, as the paper says everything! But I did add a few succulents in coordinating Lemon Lime Twist and Pool Party along with the Berry Burst Sentiment taken from Needle and Thread.

Don’t forget to check out the last few bits of Sale-a-bration goodness, or think about taking up that fabulous Joining Offer before its too late!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #006 | Painted Harvest Fancy Fold

Inspire.Create.Challenge How to make a Fancy Fold card using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #006 Painted Harvest Fancy Fold

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a theme… Now, I don’t really know what I was doing when I set this challenge. I also managed to complete forget about it, so when I was planning on Saturday afternoon and I suddenly realised that I needed to make a Fancy Fold card for this week’s challenge even I panicked! But, I turned to an old friend, and I think it turned out ok!

Inspire.Create.Challenges Theme Challenge Fancy Fold Cards

I do LOVE a good fancy fold. I have a heap of Fancy Fold video tutorials over on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Theme Challenge Fancy Fold Cards Double Diamond Fold using Painted Autumn from Stampin' Up!

This is a Double Diamond fold card. They are super simple to put together…. the trick is all in the scoring! I have made these a couple of times now, and you can find the video tutorial for it HERE. This version uses Crushed Curry card stock for the base, with layers of Early Espresso card stock and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

To create the perfect layers I used the Layering Squares Framelits dies.

Measurements:

Card base – Crushed Curry Card Stock – 4 x 10″ (10 x 25 cm)

Score on the long side at; 2, 4, 6 and 8″ (5, 10, 15 and 20 cm)

Score on the short side at; 2″ (5 cm)

Rotate the card stock back so that the long side is at the top, and then make two marks along the horizontal score line at 3 and 7″ ( 7.5 and 17.5 cm)

Inspire.Create.Challenges Double Diamond Fold Card using Painted Autumn from Stampin' Up!

The biggest issue when it comes to sending Fancy Fold card is of course the envelope! Stampin’ Up! have this covered with the Envelope Punch Board… Fully coordinating, perfectly sized envelopes in flash!

Measurements:

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper : 7-7/8 x 7-7/8″ (I tend to stick to imperial measurements with the Envelope Punch Board, just feels easier!)

Punch and Score using the Envelope Punch Board at 3-3/8″ and then follow the score lines to punch and score on each side.
