Oh my goodness, what has happened to February! I cannot believe that it is already time for the InspireINK blog hop… I LOVE hopping with these girls, they always come up with some fabulous projects and I am sure this month will be no exception. Don’t forget to click the NEXT button at the end of this blog post to see the rest of the creations.

This month’s theme is ‘Fancy Folds’. Now, I have made more than may share of Fancy Fold cards over the past few years, but I was totally stumped by this. Probably because I had far too many idea to choose from, however, new stamps had just arrived in my craft room and so I turned to them first!

InspireINK Blog Hop Z Fold Card using Blossoming Basket from Stampin' Up! Sale-a-bration

The Blossoming Basket Bundle is available for free during Sale-a-bration. It comes with the Blossoming Basket stamp set and the Basket Weave Embossing Folder (that we know is going to carry over in the new Annual catalogue!), and I am totally in love with both! I’ve kept things quite simple today, but I have some fabulous cards coming soon with this stamp set!

The card itself is a basic Z Fold, I love this type of card, I think because you then have more ‘front’ to play with!

Card Base; Crumb cake – 29.7 x 10.5 cm, scored on the long side at 7.4 and 14.8 cm

Fancy Fold Friday | Double Front Card

Fancy Fold Friday Double Front Card Featuring Gifts of Love from Stampin' Up! UK

Fancy Fold Friday

Hello! Welcome to Fancy Fold Friday! I am loving the card this week. Whilst I was scanning through Pinterest a few weeks ago I spotted this style of card, something I hadn’t come across before, and I love it! I’ve kept it super simple for the video tutorial but I can see all kinds of fancy things happening with this fold.

One first glance this card doesn’t look like much….

Fancy Fold Friday Gifts of Love Stampin' Up! Video Tutorial

Until you open it!

This card is super simple to create, You know I don’t do anything overly complicated! (one of the reasons why I’m a papercrafter and not a knitter, or a sew-er – that and I’m terrified of a sewing machine, but that’s a different story!)

So, this card uses the Gifts of Love stamp set from the new 2016 Annual catalogue. This is one of the stamp sets that is exclusive to Hostesses, or those who place orders of over £150 Online. This years hostess stamp sets are just fabulous, definitely worth spending that extra £ for. Oh, while I’m waffling about getting free stamps, Stampin’ Up! has a great offer this month when you spend £250, you get at least £55 of Stampin’ Rewards to spend on Hostess stamp sets or anything else you choose from the catalogue! how awesome is that!

Fancy fold friday video tutorial split panel card using birthday blooms from Stampin' Up!

Fancy Fold Friday

Now, I will admit that this week I am pushing the boundary’s of ‘fancy fold’ but I keep seeing this style of card on Pinterest, and just HAD to give it a go!

Fancy fold friday video tutorial split panel card using birthday blooms from Stampin' Up!I am not going to waffle too much today, I do plenty of that in the video tutorial. This card really is simple to create, it really just comes down to cutting and sticking in the right places!

I wanted to keep this card simple – seeing as it is a simple faux fancy fold – and so sticking to one colour and one stamp set were the way to go for me! I am still loving finding new ways to use Birthday Blooms, an absolute MUST OWN set! and it is carrying over in the new catalogue too!

Before I finish with the measurements of this card, I just want to remind you that the current catalogues both end on the 31st May! don’t forget to check out the retiring list before your favourite stamps leave us forever!

Fancy Fold Friday | Corner Fold Card

Fancy Fold Friday Video Tutorial Corner Fold Card featuring Number of Years from Stampin' Up! UK

Fancy Fold Friday

When I first made this card last year it took me ages to work out the cutting and scoring, I had found a tutorial from an awesome American fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator and just had to make this card, but the US don’t use A4 card stock, so I had to convert the measurements. It has taken me so long to revisit this style of card after the trauma of that day, but following my own instructions I had the card finished in a flash!

Fancy Fold Friday Video Tutorial Corner Fold Card featuring Number of Years from Stampin' Up! UK

I love the fact that this card has its own level of dimension, although you could really burnish the fold lines to get the card to be flatter. I have also seen this style of fancy fold embossed with an embossing folder after the fold has been created which looks awesome! but I opted for tone on tone stamping today

This card features the Number of Years stamps and dies – which is currently available as a 15% bundle, but the bundle retired on the 31st May, although the stamps and dies will still be available they will cost more – grab them today for a bargain!

Fancy Fold Friday Corner Fold Card featuring Number of years from Stampin' Up! Uk

Have you spotted my colour combination inspiration today? Yes, this card is made in my blog colours; Soft Sky, Marina Mist and Melon Mambo!

Measurements:

Card Base – Marina Mist – Half A4, folded in half (14.8 x 21, scored on the long side at 10.5 cm)

Insert you card base into your Stampin’ Trimmer with the long side at the top, line up the left hand edge at 13 cm –  using the measurements printed on the cutting arm of the Stampin’ Trimmer cut from 2 cm down to 8 cm.

Turn your card base so the short edge is at the top, line up the left hand edge of your card stock at 8 cm, and cut again from 2cm to 8 cm – you should have created a corner cut in the middle of your card front.

Then fold the top right hand edge of the card front down, ensure that you don’t fold the centre square that will appear, burnish this score line well to ensure you card front sits flat.

Fancy Fold Friday | Simple Easel Card

Fancy Fold Friday Easel Card Video Tutorial using Stampin' Up! UK products

Fancy Fold Friday

Welcome to Fancy Fold Friday! Today I thought I would share my most commonly made Fancy Fold Card! A Simply Easel – I love doing a twist on the Easel card but today I’m heading back to basics and keeping it simple!

Fancy Fold Friday Easel Card Video Tutorial using Stampin' Up! UK products

I am still totally in love with this stamp set too! Awesomely Artistic is a great layering stamp set, and you can see me layer these stamps in the video tutorial below!

Easel cards are super simple, but require one very key component – the stopper! This is the part of the card that makes the card front stand up. Here I have used the Decorative Label punch to create my stopper, popping my punched out sentiment on a dimensional.

Measurements:

Card Base: Mint Macaron – 21 x 14.8 cm, Scored on the long side at 10.5 cm and 5.2 cm

Card Layers: Tip Top Taupe – 10 x 14.2 cm and Whisper White – 9.5 x 13.8 cm

Don’t forget that you will also need a scrap of Mint Macaron card stock for the stopper.

Fancy Fold Friday | Diagonal Double Pocket Planner Insert

Fancy Fold Friday Diagonal Double Pocket Fold Planner Insert

Fancy Fold Friday

I am loving being back with my Fancy Fold Fridays! I hope you are too!

I am not going to limit myself though just to cards, I know I love a fancy fold card as much as the next crazy paper lady however I am going to include some other folding projects too, and this is one of those.

Fancy Fold Friday Diagonal Double Pocket Fold Planner Insert

Pinterest has a LOT to answer for here! I have a whole board of fancy fold ideas, and this popped up one day, I love the idea but the measurements are for 8 1/2 x 11″ card stock AKA: American sized paper! which when you live an A4 sized world is really annoying. But I chopped down a piece of 12×12 Designer Series Paper to give it ago anyway, and chucked it into my planner – I store heaps of cards and ideas in my planner including prototypes – and I had an epiphany, what an AWESOME planner insert! Plus, trying to cut a piece of 12×12 Designer Series Paper down to A4 is a bit of a nuisance.

I use an Erin Condren Life Planner (LOVE!) but you could totally fit these into other types planners just by punching the appropriate holes. They are a great place to store tickets, receipts, business cards and other important bits of paper.

Diagonal Double Pocket Planner Insert Erin Condren Planner using Stampin' Up! UK Designer Series Paper

The insert I am currently using uses the retiring English Garden Designer Series Paper which is so super pretty, but the one in the video uses a piece of the Neutrals Designer Series Paper stack, which includes pieces of Gold and Silver (so lovely) that would make gorgeous planner inserts!

Fancy Fold Friday – Screen Divider Card

Welcome to another Fancy Fold Friday! Each Friday here at StampinByHannah and over on my YouTube, we look at a different Fancy Fold card. I will be putting them all together, probably on a YouTube Playlist at some point, just haven’t quite managed it yet!

This week during my hunt through Pinterest this style of card caught my eye, an interesting use of a punch!

Stampin' Up! UK screen divider card fancy fold butterfly basics

I just love this stamp set! Butter Fly Basics. The combinations of flowers, ferns, and butterflies is just so pretty, and then when you add the accent stamps and sentiments – its great for any occasion!

Here I have used Marina Mist, Pear Pizzazz and Sahara Sand to create this layered stamped effect.

Stampin' Up! UK screen divider card

The Screen Divider card is so simple to put together, as it only requires one piece of cardstock and a punch. The trick with this card is using those 4 screens!

Measurements:

Cardstock – 5 3/4 x 11″ (14.8 x 28 cm)

Score on the long side at 2 /34, 5 1/2 and 8 1/4″ (7, 14, and 21 cm)

Fold your cardstock into a W shape, then take one side of the W and pinch them together. Insert this into your Decorative Label punch, lining the edge of the cardstock up with the middle of the punch shape. Punch, then use the punched piece as a guide to help line up the other sides of the card

Designer Series Paper (or cardstock) – 4 pieces measuring 2 1/2 x 4 3/4″ (6.5 x 12 cm)

To create the stamped effect above I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 10 1/4 x 4 3/4″ (26 x 12 cm) and stamped my images, before cutting into 4 equal pieces
