Easy Fun Fold with the Cottage Rose Bundle

My friend Jean sent me a really pretty card with a fold I hadn't seen before.  I wanted to give it a try.  Jean's card used the Happiness Abounds Bundle with the Hues of Happiness Designer Series Paper.  I'll show Jean's card at the end of the post.  I decided that I would try the Cottage Rose Bundle with the Abigail Rose Designer Series Paper.  Here's the card.

The triangle of designer paper is actually a square folded in half diagonally.  Cut 4 x 4.

For the Crumb Cake card stock cut it to 5 1/4 x 8.  Score at 4.  Fold the Crumb Cake like a card.  Glue half of the folded designer paper behind the card.  The rest of the designer paper will fold over the closed card.  There is a tiny corner that will stick out beyond the closed card.  Clip that off even with the card.

Here is a picture of the card with the flap open.  Go ahead and close the flap.  Cut a piece of Early Espresso card stock 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Glue the back of the card down to the base.  This will cover the back of the designer paper.  With the flap open the actual card will now open to the left instead of the right.

Here is the card opened all the way.  The saying is from the Cottage Rose stamp set.  I got mine crooked the first time.  I just stamped it again on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso.  I cut it out with the Stylish Shapes dies and glued it down.  The leaf stem was only stamped on the espresso pad about half way.  I didn't want it to stick out below the flower.  The flower was stamped on Crumb Cake in Early Espresso.  I ended up just putting a drop or two of the White Craft inker on a block and using a Blender Pen.  You'll need lots of layers of the ink.  Fussy cut the flower and glue inside the card.

Close the card.  We'll work on the outside.  In order for the card to close the Abigail Rose designer paper must slip under the flowers on the front of the card.

The Cottage Flowers dies have two stems that are outlines of flowers, a larger one and a smaller one.  Add some of the Adhesive Sheets to a piece of Early Espresso card. Turn over the paper and cut out the two flowers.  Remove the backing and turn the flowers into stickers.  Glue as seen on the card front.

Stamp the largest flower stamp from Cottage Rose onto Crumb Cake.  Color the flower just as we did for the flower on the inside.  Cut this out using the Cottage Flowers dies.

Here is the trick.  Add the cut out with dimensionals.  They must be placed so that the triangle of designer paper can slip under without getting caught on the dimensionals.

The saying on the front is from Cottage Rose stamped in Early Espresso.

Embellish with some of the new Heart Pearls.  They are just precious!

That's it!  Here is a picture with the card that Jean made and my card.  I'm sure that Jean was inspired by someone but I don't know who.  I can just tell you that Jean inspired me.  Thanks!  And thank you for joining me today.  I hope everything made sense to you.  Ask me if you have any questions.

Sending Smiles and Just a Little Stamping

My card today features the Sending Smiles stamp set.  This card is just stamping.  Oh, I did add a couple little butterflies.

The card base is Gorgeous Grape 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4.

The next layer is Fresh Freesia cut to 4 x 5 1/4.

Next up is a layer of Basic White.  Here's where we do the stamping.

Add the sending stamp to the Stamparatus so that it will stamp in the center of the white paper.  Ink and stamp in Gorgeous Grape.  I used the Stamparatus just in case my image wasn't as good as it should be.  I only had to stamp it once, but you never know.  Stamp the little saying underneath in Grape.

I started stamping with the words, but it really doesn't matter.  I added the stems in Granny Apple Green.  I did stamp off for those.  Next I added the Grape flowers and then the Freesia ones.  Add the center of the flowers with Daffodil Delight.  I added some little flower clusters in Freesia.  If I do the card again, I'll probably used the Gorgeous Grape for that.

Cut out the butterflies using Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia card stock.  I used the Brilliant Wings dies.  Embellish with the Glossy Dots Assortment.

So here is the inside of the card.  It's really just a simplified version of the outside.

Sometimes you need simple.  Sometimes you just want to sit down and stamp.  This is that set!

Sweet Songbirds Bundle For a Birthday

Stampin' Up!  has come up with an adorable bird bundle called the Sweet Songbirds with the Songbird Builder punch.  We all love punches.  My friend Kaye had a birthday recently and I made this card for her.

It's a simple fun fold.  Here is a picture of the open card.

Kaye loves purple so I made the card for her in shades of purple.  The base is Highland Heather cut to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score it at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4.  Fold in the center as a usual card.  The smaller flap is folded back away from the card.  

The patterned paper for this card is from the Butterfly Kisses Designer Series Paper.  The piece for the folded back flap is cut to 2 x 5 1/2.  Place this in the center of this flap.  It goes all the way from top to bottom.  The piece for the inside of the card measures 2 1/4 x 5 1/2.  Place it showing just a little of the Highland Heather base.  This makes it similar to the front.  The Basic White piece for the inside measures 1 3/4 x 5 1/2.  Butt it up next the the designer paper.  I recommend that you so your stamping for the inside first.

The saying for the inside was too long for my space.  I stamped in Memento Black.  I inked from the edge of the pad only the part of the stamp without the last word.  Clean super well and then ink just the last word.  OK, I admit that to cleaned my stamp by stamping it over and over again on scrap paper until there was no more ink.  That worked.  Stamp the musical notes down in the corner.

For the panel in the front I used the Seasonal Labels dies.  They aren't just for Christmas.  Those labels are great!  Cut from Basic White card stock.  Punch the bird from Fresh Freesia and from Highland Heather card stock.  The beak is from Daffodil Delight.  Assemble the parts as seen on the card.  I used the smallest Classic Matte Dots in black for the eyes.  I added a little dot of white using the now retired Chalk Marker.

On white stamp the branch in Early Espresso and  a bunch of the leaves in Parakeet Party, one of our new In Colors.  Fussy cut the branch and leaves.  I did cut the leaves in their groups of two and three.  Add everything with dimensionals.  Stamp notes and the saying in Memento Black.

When you adhere this panel to the front remember that you only need adhesive on one side.  You don't want to glue your card shut, do you!

This was my first card using this bundle, but I see many more in my future.  How about you?
