One Sheet Wonder Series - Cards E & F

Hello.  Welcome back to my Saturday card series.  This week I am featuring two more cards using my One Sheet Wonder Template

I have done all the measuring for you and have prepared cutting diagrams to help you get the most from your cardstock and DSP.  If you want to work ahead, you can cut the cardstock and DSP and label them with the letter on the diagram.  Then sort them by letter so you have all the pieces you need for assembling each card.  I also have some general directions for all cards as well as specific directions for each card - including the folding technique.

Here are the cards:

Card E - Tent Card

Card base:

1.  Start with a card base cut 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"
2.  Score at 4 1/4"
3.  Fold in half on the score line.
4.  Cut a second piece measuring 3 1/4" x 4 1/2".
5.  Using the piece cut in Step 4, apply adhesive to the lower half of the layer attach to the card base.  Tip:  When adhering this layer to the card base, check that the overall height of the card does not exceed 5 1/2".  This will allow the card to fit in a standard envelope.



Card F - Standard Side Fold
Card base:

1.  Start with a card base cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
2.  Score at 4 1/4"
3.  Fold in half on the score line.
4.  Embellish!

DOstamper STARS #103 - Joy Fold Card

Hello.  Welcome to another DOstamper STARS Challenge.  This week is a Sketch Pad challenge.


Two weeks ago, I started a Saturday card series featuring a One Sheet Wonder template that I created, combined with fun folds, to create 15 different cards.  If you have not seen it yet, check out this link.  One of the folding techniques is the Joy Fold card.  This fold is easier than its look and adds such as an impact to your card.


Here are the folding instructions: 
  1. Cut card base to 4 1/4" x 8 1/2"
  2. Score:  5 1/2"
  3. Cut second pieces of card stock to 3" x 8"
  4. Score:  4"
  5. Adhere 4" x 5 1/4" piece of DSP to inside of card.
  6. Add adhesive to the back of the smaller card base and adhere to the main card base.  Make sure the fold of the smaller card is opening to the right.
  7. See tutorial if you need more information:


Hope you will try this technique.  Visit my fellow STARS for more inspiration.

One Sheet Wonder Series - Cards C & D

Welcome back to my Saturday Card Series.  I am currently featuring a One Sheet Wonder template that I created to work with 10 different folding techniques.  How fun is that?  My original cards featured the Park Lane DSP from the Stampin' Up! 2014-15 Annual Catalog.  Here is the link to that post.  Today, I am showing you a variation that is more masculine.   The cutting and folding instructions are the same.  These cards feature the hexagon pattern from Confetti Celebration combined with Tangelo Twist and Basic Gray.

I changed up the embellishments a bit (no bows for the guys).  I used the Whisper White cotton ribbon and just tied a simple knot in the ribbon before it was adhered to the card layer.  Some cards feature the Basic Gray Bakers Twine, Silver Buttons and/or the Essentials Hardware Clips from Stampin' Up!.  Here are the cards from last week in this color way:

Cards A&B - Gate Fold and Standard Side Fold

 
This week, I am again featuring a Standard Side Fold Card as well as an Easel Card.  I have done all the measuring for you and have prepared cutting diagrams to help you get the most from your cardstock and DSP.  If you want to work ahead, you can cut the cardstock and DSP and label them with the letter on the diagram.  Then sort them by letter so you have all the pieces you need for assembling each card.  I also have some general directions for all cards as well as specific directions for each card - including the folding technique.

Card C - Standard Side Fold

Card base:

1.  Start with a card base cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"
2.  Score at 4 1/4"
3.  Fold in half on the score line.
4.  Embellish!


 
 
Card D - Easel Card

Card base:

1.  Start with a card base cut 4 1/4" x 11"
2.  Score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2"
3.  Fold on both score lines.  See photos.
4.  Add a sentiment/layer to the inside of the card using dimensional adhesive. This is what holds the easel in place when open.



 

I hope you are enjoying this series.  Stop back again next Saturday for more great cards.

DOstamper STARS #102

Happy Thursday.  Welcome to another DOstamper STARS challenge.  This week is a Color My World challenge.


I have to admit, I really had to think about how to use these colors. I do love them all (especially Blackberry Bliss), but how to use them together?  Here is what I came up with.  I recently purchased the Another Thank You stamp set and wanted to try the largest "thank you".  I love the way it looks in Blackberry Bliss.

 
The swirls from the Everything Eleanor stamp set were stamped in Old Olive.  I stamped them twice, with most of the image off the page.  I love how the swirl looks with the sentiment.  I added three Petite Petal flowers stamped in Island Indigo.  The centers are accented with rhinestones.

 
Thanks for stopping by today.  Find even more inspiration from my fellow STARS.
