Fancy Fold Friday – Waterfall card

Welcome to another Fancy Fold Friday here at StampinByHannah!

I love doing these fancy fold posts for you all, but I have to say, I need some inspiration, so, would you please be so kind as to leave a comment below with a fancy fold that you would like to see me tackle!

This card is a request from my lovely friend Kathryn.

Stampin' Up! UK Waterfall card Indescribable Gift

Usually a Waterfall card is vertical, but I had to change it up a bit, and so decided to make it sideways, I think it works.

This card uses the Brushed Silver cardstock and Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack, I love neutral colours at the moment – probably something to do with still being in winter mode – its been so very cold here!

The stamp set I have used it Indescribable Gift, one of the Easter themed sets from the Spring/Summer catalogue. I know that it has been designed with the Blendabilities in mind, but I just think it is the most beautiful line image I can’t bring myself to colour it in! Here I have stamped it in Smokey Slate onto Whisper White, and the sentiment from the same set is stamped in Momento Black (my Favourite black ink!)

Measurements:

Cardbase – cut a piece of A4 length ways – put the cardstock into your trimmer with the short side at the top and cut at 10.5 cm (4 1/8″)

Designer Series Paper – 10 x 14.2 cm (3 7/8″ x 5 1/2″)

Then there are a series of smaller pieces of cardstock –

1 piece – 2.5 x 10.5cm (1 x 4 1/8″)

4 pieces – 5 x 5 cm (2 x 2″)

Cut a piece of Whisper White to 4.5 x 18 cm (1 3/4 x 7″) and stamp along the length, then cut this piece into 4 measuring 4.5 x 4.5 cm (1 3/4 x 1 3/4″)

Cut a piece of Basic Grey cardstock to 5 x 24 cm (2 x 9 1/2″) and score at 5, 7, 9, and 11 cm (2, 2 3/4, 3 1/2, and 4 1/4″) punch the end with the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch

How to get 6 (metric) cards from one sheet of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper!

I love 12 x 12 paper! I admit, I am a little addicted, and I don’t actually use it as often as I should!

When I received the Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper I knew I was going to struggle to cut into it, its a gorgeous collection of floral themed papers all hand painted – it is stunning! But I knew I had to use this one particular piece in as large pieces as I could, and making 6 cards from one sheet of DSP was the way to do this.

I know a few US demo’s have made similar videos, but they use slightly different measurements to fit 8 1.2 x 11″ cardstock, rather than our A4

I just love the look of these cards, all different but definitely a set together!

And I couldn’t bear to split them up so, I’m going to give them away to you – to win these 6 cards all you have to do is place an order with me before midnight on the 28th of February 2015 – and I will select one random winner! awesome!

Stampin' Up! UK Painted Bloom Petals 6 cards from one DSP

But, how do you make them! well, I have a video for that!

Measurements:

For these cards you will need 3 sheets for A4 cardstock cut in half and folded to make 6 cards, and a sheet of 12 x 12 Designer Series Paper

Cut 1.8 cm (3/4″) from the bottom of the 12 x 12 DSP

Cut your DSP in half at 14.3 cm (5 13/16″)

Then cut each piece into 10 cm (3 7/8″) pieces, you will have two little slivers of DSP left over
