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)

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.

Inspire.Create.Challenges #005 | Season’s Greetings

Inspire.Create.Challenges Sketch Challenge using Year of Cheer from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenges #005 | Season’s Greetings

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is my personal favourite, we are using a Sketch this week! I LOVE a sketch, partly because I LOVE moving all the elements around and making something that looks nothing like the sketch at all, and partly because I love seeing what other people do with them!

I haven’t altered the sketch very much this week because I needed a quick card because I was away at Stampin’ Up! OnStage last weekend time hasn’t been my friend.

Inspire Create Challenges Stampin' Up! sketch challenge

As the challenge coordinator for Inspire.Create.Challenges I have been aiming to keep our sketches nice and simple. One so that it’s not a lot of work for the AWESOME Design Team, but also to make sure they aren’t too complex for a new card maker to follow along with. I LOVE this sketch, you guys know how much I use my circle dies… and this sketch just gave me another excuse to get them out (not that I needed one!)

Silver Christmas Card for Inspire.Create.Challenges using Year of Cheer from Stampin' Up!

This card uses the lovely Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper (Can you tell I’m in love with this a bit at the moment, it was on my Christmas Countdown project last week too!). The paper does come in Whisper White, with Metallic foiling (Yum!), but I have added colour here with a Sponge Brayer. So, I had intended for the added colour to be Smoky Slate to match the card base, but apparently my Sponger Brayer wasn’t quite as clean as I thought I was! I made 8 of these, and some of them have more than a hint of Tranquil Tide about them!

Measurements:

Card Base – Smoky Slate – 21 x 14.85 cm, scored on the long edge at 10.5 cm

Whisper White Layer – 14.3 x 10 cm

Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper – 9.5 x 4.7 cm

Inspire.Create.Challenges Sketch Challenge using Year of Cheer from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment circle is taken from the Cheers to the Year stamp set. I decided to embrace the Tranquil Tide and go with some stamping and card stock in the same colour, while the sentiment picks up on the hint of metallic from the Designer Series Paper and is Heat Embossed in Gold.

I thought that was going to be the card finished, but it just looked a little bare. So, I hit my ribbon draw and came up with this really pretty 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon in Whisper White for some cute bows.

I cannot wait to see what you make with this sketch! Don’t forget to join in over at Inspire.Create.Challenges.

Inspire.Create.Challenges #004 | Your Kindness Means So Much…

Inspire Create Challenges Kindness Card Colour Combination Challenge using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

I cannot believe it is already the 4th Inspire.Create.Challenge…. I hope that you are having as much fun with these challenges as I am!

I have a pretty simple card for you today, but the stamps on this one do ALL the talking!

Inspire Create Challenges Stampin' Up! Colour Combination using Island Indigo Soft Sky Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White

This colour combination was totally inspired by a swap group at a recent team training I attended. You might remember THIS card I made with the same colours! Actually this card has two sources of inspiration…. because I made it quite quickly after making THIS rainbow creation too…. Do you find that, when your making a few cards at once they seam to use the same stamp set, or have a similar layout? I certainly do! I actually made this card before our first challenge…. and it has been sat on my desk waiting for its moment for WEEKS!

Inspire Create Challenges Kindness Card Colour Combination Challenge using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

Can you guess what Stamp set I have used here? It’s Painted Harvest! I know…. a Painted Harvest card without a sunflower?! This stamp set has the most amazing leaves (don’t tell, but I love the leaves more than the flower!!!) and although they are designed to be stamped one on top of the other (2-step stamping) I really like the look of the more detailed stamps on their own.

Here the leaves have been stamped around the card stock in Island Indigo and Soft Sky. With that cute little dot stamp added in Flirty Flamingo.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black… I almost went for Island Indigo, but just felt it would be lost and that a slight variation in colour would help it stand out.

Don’t forget to click over to the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created with this fun colour combination!

Mr. and Mrs. for Inspire.Create.Challenges #001

Inspire.Create.Challenge Wedding Card Colour Challenge using Year of Cheer from Stampin' Up!

Hello! Oh I am so excited … and a little nervous about today’s project! Today marks the start of something brand new here at StampinByHannah! Today is the launch of the Inspire.Create.Challenge Papercraft challenge blog… of which I am a Design Team Member and challenge coordinator! Every other Wednesday I will be sharing a project based around the challenge here on my blog… but I would LOVE you to join in too! You can find a heap of inspiration and ideas over on the Inspire.Create.Challenge Blog, as well as how to enter!

Inspire Create Challenge Colour Challenge #001

Our first challenge uses our challenge colours! I cannot wait to see what the other ladies have made using this slightly unusual colour combo!

Year of Cheer Wedding Card using Stampin' Up! products

I have used the Cheers to the Year Stamp set here to create a fun, yet simple wedding card. I love that swirly circle stamp… when I saw it in the catalogue it reminded me of THESE cards I made last year with a different stamp set. I have stamped the circles with Calypso Coral ink, and added the heart stamp from the same Cheers to the Year stamp set in Basic Grey.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Wedding Card Colour Challenge using Year of Cheer from Stampin' Up!

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and has been heat embossed in White on a strip of Calypso Coral card stock.

This card is finished with scattering of White Perfect Accents that I have pealed the backing off of because the stamped layer is Shimmery White Card stock and is just slightly off white. However, the camera hasn’t pick up on these particularly well.

Do go over to Inspire.Create.Challenges to see what the other lovely members of the Design Team have created…
