Ornate Garden Gatefold Card

I used the Tasteful Touches stamp set and Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper to create today’s Gate Fold card. 

Gatefold Card Stampin Up

 

I began with a piece of Old Olive cardstock and scored it on both ends (I scored it on end, flipped it over to the other side and scored again) which created the gatefold (you can find all the measurements below the Supply List).

I added panels of Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series paper to both sides of the card base and added a panel of Whisper White cardstock to the inside.

Gatefold Card

 

It isn’t necessary to add a belly band (mine was made with one of our New In Colors – Bumblebee) but it does help to keep the card closed. The width of the belly band can be any size and mine is 3/4″.  I tried a 1″ width but preferred the smaller size for this card. I scored it in two places and wrapped it around the card, securing the two ends with a small amount of Multipurpose Glue. I added two Stampin’ Dimensionals to the the belly band and then placed the sentiment piece on top of it. 

 

Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper

 

The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock with Old Olive ink using the stamp set Tasteful Touches. It was cut out using Stitched Shapes Dies and a die-cutting machine.  The Bumblebee and Old Olive scalloped ovals were cut out using the Layering Ovals dies which coordinate beautifully with the Stitched Shapes Dies.

Stampin’ Up! Springtime Impressions

Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper

 

Today’s card features the Springtime Impressions Dies. This set of dies is on the Retiring List and on sale for a great price! 

 

 

Tropical Oasis Designer Series Paper, which debuted in the Mini Catalog, is also retiring. I love all the vibrant colors and tropical feel of this paper.

Springtime Impressions Dies

 

This gate-fold card is really quick and easy to make.  The base of the card is a single piece of Old Olive cardstock.  To create the gate, the So Saffron cardstock is scored in two places (you can find all the measurements below the supply list).

The butterfly has one Mini Stampin’ Dimensional down its center and is positioned so that it covers both sides of the fold.  The sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White cardstock using Old Olive ink and was cut out using the Ornate Frames Dies.  These dies debuted in the Holiday Mini Catalog and currently can’t be found in a catalog but are available for purchase here. They will be carrying over into the new Annual Catalog which debuts on June 3rd.

Fun Fold Card with Painted Poppies

Forever Lovely Stamp Set

 

Today’s card is a fun fold that features the Painted Poppies stamp set and the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder.  If you’d like to give it a try, I have a video showing how to make it!

 

Forever Lovely Stamp Set

 

I used Poppy Parade and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends to color the poppies and the flower inside the card but first I stamped the images using Memento Ink.  When using alcohol based pens such as Stampin’ Blends, the type of ink you use is important.  Because Memento Ink is a water-based dye ink, it’s perfect for use with Stampin’ Blends.

 

 

All the supplies I used can be found below in the supply list.

Tuesday Tutorial and Happy Birthday to You

Tracy's Tuesday Tutorial

 

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up

 

It’s Tutorial Tuesday and I have a quick and easy card for you! I shared this card last week and you can access the tutorial today by clicking the link below the Supply List.

Unfortunately the Happy Birthday Dies, used to create today’s card, have sold out! They were part of a while supplies last promotion and they are now gone. But the good news is that the Happy Birthday to You stamp set, one of our Sale-a-Bration gifts IS still available and the flower image can simply be cut out or stamped directly onto the Whisper White cardstock

The stamp set I used for the sentiment on my card, Fable Friends, is currently on the Low Inventory List.  It’s a great set for Easter so if you’ve been thinking of purchasing it, my recommendation is to grab it while it’s still in stock.

Stampin’ Up! Birthday Dies

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up

 

Today’s card features the Stampin’ Up! Happy Birthday to You stamp set, a free gift during Sale-a-Bration with a $50 order and the coordinating Birthday Dies. This stamp set is only available during Sale-a-Bration and only while supplies last! 

 

Happy Birthday to You Stamp Set

 

Happy Birthday to You Stampin Up

 

To get the beautiful texture on my Purple Posy cardstock, I used the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and my die-cutting machine. I recommend using Multipurpose Glue to adhere the embossed pieces to the Thick Whisper White card base. 

After stamping the flower images using Memento Ink, I colored them with Purple Posy & Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends. It was so easy cutting the flowers out with the Birthday Dies! I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back and adhered them to a circle of Whisper White cardstock that was cut out using the Layering Circles Dies.  The sentiment is from the stamp set, Fable Friends, and was inked up with Memento ink. A scalloped circle was cut out of Granny Apple Green cardstock, again using the Layering Circles Dies, and the Whisper White circle was adhered to this. Stampin’ Dimensionals were added to the back (only on the right hand side) before adhering it to the front of the card.
