Fun Folds

He's All That! Twisted Gate Fold Card

Today I have a twisted gate fold featuring the He's All That stamp set and the He's the Man Designer Series Paper.  I love a paper with small images and this DSP answers the bill!  It's a great overall man paper but probably it's not just for men.  It's appeal could be wider of course.

He's All That  Twisted Gate Fold  He's the Man DSP  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card is smaller than the usual card.  You might wonder about mailing it.  It will fit in the normal A2 card that we use in the USA.  

Start with a base of Early Espresso that measures 4 1/4 x 7 1/2.  Score at 2 1/2 and again at 5.  There is some diagonal scoring as well.  I do have a video below showing how to do the scoring.  For each of the end segments the diagonal goes in the same direction.  At the left start in the upper left corner and end in the lower right.  At the right start at the upper left as well and end in the right corner.  Use the cutting well on the Stampin' Trimmer.  Refer to the video.

The end sections will be folded with mountain folds.  At the left fold back and on the right fold down.

Now we have the basic fold.  Easier than it looks.  You will need 2 pieces of the He's the Man Designer Series Paper.  They measure 2 1/4 x 3 7/8.  Cut the paper diagonally.  For the paper with directionality start at the upper right and cut down to the corner.  It will go on the card behind the flaps if that helps with a visual.  The other paper has no direction.  You can cut it either way.

Glue all the pieces into place.

Use the  Stylish Shapes dies to cut the largest circle in Early Espresso and the next largest circle in Sahara Sand.  I used the Stamparatus to mount the stamp from He's All That.  I traced around the circle on my grid paper.  (I made this in a class.)  I wanted to make sure that the image was good and dark.  Glue the circles together.  Add a knot of Early Espresso Faux Suede Trim and use the Rustic Metallic Adhesive Backed Dots.

Be careful when using dimensionals to add the circle label.  You don't want to adhere the whole card so it won't open.  Lay the label on your card to determine where dimensionals should go on the flap.

The inside of the card is Sahara Sand measuring 2 1/4 x 4.  The saying is in the He's All That stamp set.

I realize that this is a different kind of fold.  I did enjoy making it.  Here's the video.  I hope you enjoy it.

Happiness Abounds Explosion Card Fun Fold

2022-2023 Annual Catalog Cover

The 2022-2023 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog is live.  Go to my online store here.  You are going to love it!

Download the catalog here.

Hello to you!  Today I have a card using brand new products!  The annual catalog is live May 3rd!  As a demonstrator happiness does abound when we have new products.  We are using the Happiness Abounds stamp set and the Pretty Prints Designer Series Paper.

Happiness Abounds Explosion Card  Pretty Prings DSP  White Crinkled Seam Binding  Stylish Shapes dies  Blends  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Happiness Abounds Explosion Card Open  Pretty Prings DSP  White Crinkled Seam Binding  Calypso Coral  Stylish Shapes dies  Blends  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I have a video to go with my post today.  I apologize that I had a little difficulty with the fold.  Hopefully I got the point across and you'll be able to get it done.  Sometimes I'm a little directionally challenged.

The base of this card is Calypso Coral card stock cut at 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 4 1/4 and 5 1/2.  Fold like a usual  card and then fold back the next fold.  Glue down the small area to make a book fold.

The designer series paper is called Pretty Prints.  Cut a piece that is 4 x 5 1/8.  Turn paper to the side and cut a piece 1 1/8 inches off.  Notice how the patterns meet on this.  You'll want to line it up when you adhere them to the card front.  Place the small piece close to the fold but centered elsewhere.  Center the other piece.

Tie a piece of the White Seam Binding around the card and tie into a bow.

Use the Stylish Shapes  squares for the front and insides.  You'll need 3 of the largest squares in Calypso Coral and 3 of the next smallest squares in Basic White. 

Stamp the smallest flower from the Happiness Abounds stamp set to one side of the white in Memento Black.  Make a mask using a sticky note and stamp another flower.  There is a new product in the annual catalog called Masking Paper #155480.  We couldn't order it until now.  It's on my list.  I'll let you know all about it later after I know!  Use Pale Papaya Combo, Light Calypso Coral and Light Parakeet Party Blends to color.  The saying is from the Ranunculus Romance stamp set.  Add the layers to each other and then add to the front of the card.

The inside of the card uses a piece of the Pretty Prints 6 x 6.  Fold from the center matching corners, turn around and fold again.  Now fold on one diagonal, turn around and fold on the other diagonal.  Watch the video and see how to fold this in and how to add to the inside of the card.  

One set of the orange and white squares is just for writing.  The other set has the big flower from Happiness Abounds.  Color with the same blends.  The saying will go on the diagonal.  It's also from Ranunculus Romance.  Unfold and look at how all of this will fit and adhere these layers in the correct spot.  Pay attention to how you place the folded insert in the card.  Put glue on one side and adhere centered.  Put glue on the other side, close the card, and press.

Hopefully this is not as clear as mud.

Facebook Live 9.29.2021 Two Fall Latch Fun Fold Cards

We made 2 great Latch Fun Fold cards on my Facebook Live on Wednesday.  Both are great for fall.  I think you'll like them.  I've got the video to post and all the measurements.  Here are the cards.

So I'm going to put the video here.  

 

We made the card on the right first. For the cards I'll put the measurements and supplies used.

Cajun Craze is the base of this one.  You'll need one that measures 5 1/2 x 6 1/2 and score at 4 1/4.  The other Cajun Craze piece measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2.  Score this at 1/2 on the shorter side.

Measurements for the Basic White card stock are 2 1/8 x 5 3/8, 2 5/8 x 3 3/8, and 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.

I used the Love of Leaves and the Quiet Meadow stamp sets.  Colors used are Cajun Craze, Merry Merlot, Old Olive, Crushed Curry, and Soft Suede.

The circles were made using the Layering Circles dies.  Embellishments are made with Wink of Stella and the Bumblebee Gingham Ribbon.

The latch part comes when the layer on the right fits under the circle label and over the left fold.

Here's the inside of the card.

The second card we made had a base of Early Espresso.  The first piece is 5 1/2 x 6 1/2, score at 4 1/4.  The second piece is 3 1/2 x 4 1/2, score on the 3 1/2 inch side at 1/2.

I used the Beauty of the Earth Designer Series Paper for this card.  Measurements are 2 1/8 x 5 3/8 for one and 2 7/8 x 4 3/8 for the other using the multicolor fall paper.  I also used the sky paper for the inside of the card.  It measures 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  I like a thin border around my card.  If you want to get more use of your DSP, then you might want to lower all the measurements by 1/8.

I used the tree from the Beautiful Trees dies.  You'll need two of them.  Cut from Early Espresso.  Put some of the Adhesive Sheets on the back of the card stock.  This will turn your trees into stickers.

Use the Layering Circles dies for the circles.  The sentiment is from the Inspired Thoughts stamp set.

For the inside of the card, use the Happiest of Birthdays stamp set.  Place the stamp on the Stamparatus to make sure you get a dark image.

Use the video for the directions.

I think this should give you what you need to know.  You can adjust the latch part of the card to the design you want to use.  On the second card I adjusted the size to fit my tree.
