Fancy Fold Friday – Halloween Card in a Box!

Happy Halloween!

and Happy Fancy Fold Friday!

This week I thought I would knock things up a gear and give you a card in a box!

I love these cards! When I’ve made them for people, everyone is always stunned by them!

Stampin' Up! UK Card in a Box Halloween

Isnt it fab!

Ok, So the measurements for this fab project:

Cardstock = 9 x 5 inches (23 x 13 cm) and two pieces measuring 3 x 2″ (8 x 5cm)

DSP = 4 3/4 x 1 7/8″ (12 x 4 1/2cm), 4 pieces that measure 2 x 2 1/8″ (5 x 5.2cm) and 3 pieces that measure 2 x 2 5/8″ (5 x 6.5cm)

Score the Cardstock on the short edge at 2 3/4″ (7cm) and on the long side at 2 1/8″, 4 1/4″, 6 3/8″ and 8 1/2″ (thats every 5.2cm!)

I’ve used Tangelo Twist (I LOVE that orange!) and Flashback DSP for this box, and have fussy cut the images from the Tee-Hee-Hee stamp set for the embellishments! (how cute are those bats!) All the stamping is done using Staz-on Ink

Check the video for full instructions!

 

DISCLAIMER – I work in Inches, all metric measurements are approximate!

The sentiment used on this card is from Good Greetings – which is still available for FREE with an qualifying order placed before the end of October!

Happy Halloween!

Well, almost!

I have a card for you today! and something slightly different – a 6 x 6″ square card!

Stampin' Up! UK Halloween Card thick bakers twine pom pom

Ok, So, this card is made from half a sheet of 12×12 Whisper White cardstock, folded to make a 6 x 6 card base.

The DSP (Motley Monsters!) is cut to 5 3/4 x 5 3/4″, with that lovely Burmuda Bay star print piece cut to 5 3/4 x 2″. I have then stamped the Bats from Tee-Hee-Hee and the sentiment from Good Greetings in Staz-on Ink – to get that true Black!

Then we get to the “pom pom”. Now, I followed a YouTube tutorial to make a Bakers Twine pom pom for this – but really, its nothing like a pom pom! I dont know if I just didnt have enough twine, or if I’ve make some sort of mistake along the way, but this is what I have! I actually quite like it! It means though, that this is definitely a ‘hand deliver’ sort of card!

To create the ‘Pom Pom’:

I took a length of Thick Bakers Twine (this one is White and Tangerine Tango!) and wrapped it around 3 of my fingers. Tied the middle together with white bakers twine, and snipped all the ends. I’ve attached it to the card with some more Thick Bakers Twine, and covered the tied middle with a fussy cut Bat!

Hope you like the card for today – check out the blog of Friday for a super cool Fancy Fold Friday Halloween Card!

Fancy Fold Friday – Zig Zag Fold

Hello! Welcome to the second in my series of ‘fancy fold’ cards!

This week, I’ve made a Zig-Zag fold card, using Real Red and Flashback DSP.

I do love designer series paper – I love patterns, and colour, and really I’m just a stationary geek! (yes, I love staples and paperclips too!), but I really struggle to use DSP on cards! I love using it for scrapbooking, I use masses of 12×12 papers on layouts and in Project Life, but on cards, I get a little stuck!

Stampin' Up! UK Zig Zag fold card Flashback DSP

This card, although it looks complex, is really simple to create. The cardbase is cut at 8 1/4 by 5 3/4, then (and this is the only complicated bit!) you need to line one corner of the cardstock up with the top corner of your papertrimmer, then line the corner diagonally opposite to it up with the 4″ line on your trimmer – this will create the slopping angle to the top of the card. The card is then embellished with the Flashback DSP cut the same as the cardbase, before trimming 1/2″ from the bottom edge, and cut into 2 1/2″ strips.

FFF - zig zag 1

The card was then completed with three punched flowers, stamped using the Something to Say stamp set, and punched using the Itty Bitty Accents punch pack. The sentiment is only available until the end of October, place an order (or host a party) of over £200, and earn this stamp set for FREE! its so super cute, and has some lovely sentiments for Christmas and Halloween crafting.

See you again next week

World Card Making Day 2014 – Rosey Papillon

As we continue our journey through 12 cards in 12 hours for World Card Making Day 2014, I thought I would just remind you that all the products used for all the cards cost less than £130, and so could form your Stampin’ Up! Started Kit! message me HERE for more information about joining Stampin’ Up!

Stampin' Up! UK Rose Red Papillon Potpourri

This card uses not only that gorgeous Papillon Potpourri stamp set, and a piece of DSP!

The butterflies are mutli-colour stamped using the Stampin’ Write Markers! (I love these. Not only are they great for journalling, but the brush tip allows you to colour your stamps, meaning that you can create multi-coloured stamped images like these butterflies!)

The cardbase is Rose Red, and the DSP is Blushing Bride from the Subtles DSP stack!

World Card Making Day 2014 – Punched Papillon

Welcome to the 4th card I’ve made for World Card Making Day 2014!

Stampin' Up! UK Papillon Potpourri Label punch

I recent got the Elegant Butterfly punch (Yes, once again I’m late to the party!). One of the first things I do when I get new product is check out what other people have done with it, generally on Pinterest! This card is inspired by THIS one by Julie Davison.

I used the Elegant Butterfly Punch, and the Decorative Label out of Whisper White cardstock, and layered the Subtles Designer Series Paper Stack behind. The card base is So Saffron, and the DSP is in So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, and Pool Party!

I love this card, its super cute! as as per usual my photos dont do it justice! more practice needed I’m sure!

 

Love the DSP! check out our latest Stampin’ Up! Joining offer – get a Pack of Paper every month of 6 months!

Just a little DSP….

We all have scraps dont we?! the scraps of DSP were starting to take over in my craftroom, so while I was trying to tidy up…. a card was born!

Stampin Up UK Moonlight Designer Series Paper DSP

This card uses Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Moonlight DSP Stack. It features the new In Colours: Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, and Blackberry Bliss, with Sahara Sand and Whisper White. This card also a scrap of the Flashback DSP. Its a Very Vanilla card base, and I’ve stamped the sentiment from Something to Say in Memento Tuxedo Black.

This card is pretty simple really, I love using scraps of DSP like this, making little banners or strips on a card, with a cute sentiment.

To finish I used the Project Life by Stampin’ Up! Corner Rounder to round the two outside corners, and that the card done!
