Submarine Life Inverted Book Fold Card

I'm so glad you have joined me today.  We'll be using the Submarine Life stamp set and Submarine Life Builder Punch to make our Inverted Book Fold Card.  I have no idea what the name of this card is so I made one up for it.  Let me know if there is a name.

Submarine Life Inverted Book Fold Fun fold  Blending Brush  Submarine Life Bundle  Card Front with Hand  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

The Submarine Life bundle is on page 52 of the January-April Mini.  I love that it has a punch.  It punches the submarine, the propeller, and the periscope.  My son-in-law loves the Beatles and therefore, so do my granddaughters.  I had to make a yellow submarine card.

This is one of those sets with lots of stamps.  It even has sea life wearing a diving mask and a snorkel.  This gives you an opportunity to use lots of colors.

This is the inside of the fun fold.  It does allow the card to stand for display.

The base for this card is Pool Party measuring 4 1/4 x 11.  Score at 4, 5 1/2, and 7.  The middle fold is a mountain fold and the other two folds will be valley folds.

Measurements:

3 Daffodil Delight panels 3 3/4 x 4.

2 Daffodil Delight panels 1 1/2 x 4

3 Basic White panels 3 1/2 x 3 3/4

2 Basic White panels 1 1/4 x 3 3/4

Basic White for the submarine, propeller, periscope, and saying.

Use a Blending Brush and Pool Party ink to add color to all of the white panels.  This does not need to be perfect.  The ocean has fluctuations in its color.

Next comes all the stamping.

For the submarine, make sure your ink pad has a good amount of ink.  It did stamp well.  Before stamping the sub, propeller, and periscope check the punch to check which way you might want to stamp.

And the outside.  I do have a video showing all of the stamping and how to put everything together.

The saying on the outside is actually one long stamp.  I just cut the words apart and added them to the card with glue dots.  The glue dots do give just a little extra height to the words.

Here is another version of this card using a piece of the Sunny Day Designer Series Paper.  That's a paper from Sale-a-Bration.   You'll need to add a little something to the Submarine Life bundle and you'll qualify to earn the paper for free!  I cut the plants from Garden Green using the Notes of Nature and the Wild Fern die sets.  I also fussy cut the fish and other sea animals.

I hope you'll take a look at the video and that you'll try the Submarine Life bundle.

Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop November 2023 - Embossing

Welcome to the Luv 2 Stamp Group’s 2023 Blog Hop! We are excited to share projects with you again for the third year. This year we are shaking things up and bringing you all new monthly themes to inspire your next project!
 
Once you are done with each post, scroll down to the bottom and you will see a list of Blog Hop participants, you can click on their name to go to their post, or you can click the next button to go to the next post in line. Happy crafting!
This month’s theme is Embossing.  
No photo description available.
There are several types of embossing.  So you might see embossing folders, embossing paste, and powder embossing on this hop.  I'll be showing some powder embossing today.
 
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop Embossing Card  Pic White Background  Snowflake Magic Specialty  Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack  Joseph's Coat Technique  Sparkling Snowflakes  Silver and White Sheer Ribbon  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create
The technique I'll be sharing is called Joseph's Coat Technique.  It's been around for a long time, but I haven't used it in a while.  I do have a video on this post.
 
My base is Thick Basic White 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score at 4 1/4 and use a Bone Folder to get a good crisp fold.
 
For the background of the card, I used the Snowflake Magic Specialty Paper.  Cut to 4 1/8 x 5 3/8.  Glue to the card front.
 
You'll also need a piece of the Bubble Bath from the Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack.  This piece measures 3 1/4 x 4 1/2.
Wait to add this piece to the card because we'll be adding a ribbon around it later.
 
We'll  be making the focal layer on a piece of Basic White 3 x 4 1/4.
 
I used Pool Party and Fresh Freesia ink for this project.  Add color over the white cardstock piece with Blending Brushes.  Add the color  in spaces here and there.  It's ok to leave a little white, but you'll want to cover most of the surface.  Start with a little color and build on it until you get the color you want.  If you have time, it might help to let this ink dry a little or run your heat tool over it.  I did not show doing that, but when I make the card again, I will.
 
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop Embossing  Snowflake Magic Specialty  Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack  Joseph's Coat Technique  Sparkling Snowflakes  Silver and White Sheer Ribbon  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create
 
Place all of the snowflakes from the Sparkling Snowflakes on a large clear block together.  Place them close to each other.  This picture is not that clear, but hopefully you can see on the video if you wish.  Stamp with Versamark ink.  Turn the pad upside down and stamp on the block as you see it.
Make sure to use an embossing buddy over the entire piece of paper first.  This also helps make sure the ink is dry.  Stamp the block of snowflakes over the paper.
Add clear embossing powder, from the Basics Embossing Powder pack, over the paper.  Flick off the extra powder and heat with your heat tool.  This is all a little hard to see since everything is clear, but it's so worth it.
 
Now comes that part that makes the show stopper.  Take a Boho Blue ink pad and run it over the embossed paper until the entire surface is covered.  This is a ink resist technique.  The clear embossing will not accept the ink.  Take a paper towel and wipe off the excess ink on the snowflakes.  It's magic!  I have mostly seen this technique using black or navy or espresso.  I think the Boho ink works well.
 
Luv 2 Stamp Blog Hop Embossing  Close Up of Ribbon and Tag  Snowflake Magic Specialty  Soft Shimmer Paper Combo Pack  Joseph's Coat Technique  Sparkling Snowflakes  Silver and White Sheer Ribbon  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Glue the panel to the Bubble Bath Soft Shimmer paper.
 
Run Silver & White Sheer Ribbon around this layer and tie into a bow.  This ribbon looks so pretty with the silver in the Snowflake Magic Specialty Paper.
 
For the tag, I used the Tailor Made Tags dies.  First rub your white scrap with the embossing buddy.  Stamp the saying from So Sincere in Versamark.  Add silver embossing powder from the Metallics Embossing Powders.  Heat with a Heat Tool.  Cut out using one of the smallest tags centering around the saying.  I made the tag shorter.  Simply add the die about an inch or so above the bottom.  You can feel the tie kind of pop into place into the dots already there.  Tape if you wish to hold it all in place and cut again.  This is in the video.  Tie on the tag with silver trim from the Simply Elegant Trims.
 
Glue the panel to the center of the card.
 
Complete the card with embellishments.  I used Adhesive-Backed Sparkle Gems on one of the cards and Adhesive-Backed Glitter Sequins on the other.  Both look great!
 
Here's the video!
 


 
Thanks so much for joining me on the hop today.  I know you will be inspired by all of the stops on our hop.  I hope you enjoy!

Festive Tags Kit: 5 Tag Designs and 5, Yes 5, Cards You Can Make

Hello to you today. 

DEMO_MKTL_SQR

There's a new kit in town called the Festive Tags Kit!  I'll be talking about this kit today.  I must mention first, though, that all of the kits in Kits Collection are on sale during the whole month of August.  Kits are 10, 20, or 30% off.  You need to visit my online store here to see what is available.  Look at the Kits Collection.  These are while supplies last.  Some sold out kits may reappear if it says not currently available.

CUST_LPG1_FESTIVE_TAGS_KIT_US_0823

The Festive Tags Kit has all the supplies to make 15 Christmas tags.  You make 3 each of 5 designs.  The kit has everything that you need.  There is no stamping.  This kit is beautiful, fast, and easy peasy.  Here is an example of each tag.

Tag Kit  Kits Collection  Made As Directed

After making these tags, I decided to turn the tag making supplies into cards.  I have a video to show you 5 cards made from this kit with a few additional Stampin' Up! supplies.  Here goes.

 

I love these cards and they can easily be changed to go with supplies that you might already have at home.  Of course, ordering is good too!

Tag Kit  Kits Collection  Brights 6 x 6 DSP  Gold Foil  Sparkle Snowflakes  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card is on a Coastal Cabana  base 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  There is a strip of Coastal Cabana stripe cut from the Brights 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper.  The size is 2 x 4 1/4.  Add a 1/4 inch strip of Gold Foil butted up against the designer paper.  I punched a hole in the ornament with a 1/8 inch circle punch (retired).  The gold ribbon is from the Gold & Silver Trim Combo Pack from the Online Exclusives.  I used a brand new stamp set coming up in the mini called Sparling Snowflakes.  Stamp in Coastal Cabana.

Tag Kit  Kits Collection  Zany Zoo dies  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card has a base of Thick Basic White same as above.  Cut the larger trees from the Zany Zoo dies.  I used 7.  Watch the video to see about spacing.  In the sample above, I used the Tailor Made Tags.  In the sample I made on the video I used a left over tag for this.  Which do you like best?  The ribbon is Garden Green and can be found in the annual catalog called Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack.

Tag Kit  Kits Collection  Black and White Gingham Ribbon  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

I used the Sparkling Snowflakes stamp set with this card.  Colors of the snowflakes are Lost Lagoon, Fresh Freesia, and Pool Party.  Pull in the Black & White Gingham Ribbon.

Tag Kit  Snowflake EF  Red and Green Ribbon combo  JO Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

This card is on a base of Lost Lagoon.  I used a new embossing folder called Snowflake Sky 3D.  This time I used the Real Red ribbon from the annual catalog Real Red & Garden Green Ribbon Combo Pack.  I moved the wreath to the red tag background.

Tag Kit  Kits Collection  Simply Elegant Trim  Jo Anne Hewins

I think this is my favorite.  I changed the flower to the pink tag background.  I think that's Flirty Flamingo.  I added silver trim.  This is from the annual catalog and is called Simply Elegant Trim.  On the sample in the video I did not put the trim around the card, but still behind the flowers.  I used another new stamp set here called Magical Meadow.  I thought the stems went along with that set.  They are stamped in Lost Lagoon and Garden Green.

So there you have it.

Tag Kit  Kits Collection  Cards from Kit Components

Here are all of the cards.  So you could just make tags and have 15 total.  You could just make cards and have 15 total.  You can mix and match.  I hope you'll go take a look at the Festive Tags kit.  You can't beat the price!

Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper Gift Card Holder

I want to thank my friend Jera Coleman for the design of the gift card holder I'm using today.  Jera gave me a card using the Easter Bunny punch back in January at one of the NC Demo Quarterly meetings in Raleigh.   I knew that I would make one.  I took her holder apart and took all the measurements to copy her design.  I made a gift card holder using the Zoo Crew Designer Series Paper.  By the way, this paper and select others are 15% off during the month of June.  To see a brochure, go here.

Zoo Crew Gift Card Holder  Pool Party  Stylish Shapes  Duo Ribbon Combo Pack  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Isn't this cute!  I have a video for this post.  Look for it if you need a little more clarification than I can write.

The base of the gift card holder is Pool Party card stock.  It measures 4 1/4 x 9.  Score at 1/2 down each long side.  Turn and score at 4 1/4.  Burnish the folds with your Bone Folder.

Looking at the card stock, one end is longer than the other.  Cut off the 1/2 from each side on the long end.  Angle the 1/2 inch piece on the shorter side at the top and bottom and on each side.

Fold in the sides and add adhesive to the top.  Tear & Tape would work fine.  I used the Multipurpose Glue.  Use the glue sparingly.  You don't want to glue the card shut!  Fold the card to the long side and make sure all is straight.  The glue does give you a little wiggle room.

Cut a piece of Basic Black card stock to 3 1/8 x 4 1/8.  I used scraps of the Zoo Crew designer paper to cover this card stock.  There's really no set measurement for this.  Cut a rectangle strip big enough to cover across the black paper.  Angle one side.  Glue the strips butted up to each other and covering over the edges.  Reverse the sides for the wider ends.  When done, turn over the black and trim the designer paper along the edges. 

Run a piece of the Duo Ribbon Combo Pack (the Petal Pink) around the layer and tie into a bow.  Glue to the front of the gift card holder.

Cut a circle from Basic Black card stock using the Stylish Shapes dies.  Punch out the juggling bear with a 2 1/4 inch punch.  I think this Punch might be retired.

The saying is from the Zany Zoo stamp set.  Stamp in Versamark on Basic Black and then emboss in white from the Basics Emboss Powders.  Cut apart and add to the front with pieces of a Foam Adhesive Sheet.

Zoo Crew Gift Card Holder  Pool Party  Jo Anne Hewins  Luv 2 Create

Cut a piece of Basic White card stock to 3 x 5 1/2.  Score this at 1 along the short side.  Burnish upward.  Cut a strip of the black and white Zoo Crew paper 1/2 inch.  This needs to fit around the front of the fold and along to the back.  Piece in the back to match.  Take a piece of the left over strip and cut to 2 1/2.  Fold in half.  Glue to the top putting part of the strip on top and part on the back. This strip should extend over to make a pull tab.

The gift card fits into the fold.
