Good Friday morning, y’all!! Another week – done! Did it feel shorter (and hence…better!) with the Monday holiday??
If you were able to join me for my YouTube Live Video yesterday – I appreciate you spending some of your day with me! If not, but you’d like to see the replay on YouTube…here ’tis!
I saw this Double Flip-Fold card on France Martin’s blog and thought it was so fun and easy….which it totally is! I decided to use the Peaceful Moments Bundle and Painted Poppy stamp set – combined with gorgeous Parisian Blossom Specialty DSP. Take a look-see:
The front of the card was already close to the FUSION sketch challenge this week – I simply modified the position of the flip portion (sliding it to the rigth instead of centered like a “normal” double-flip). That gave me more room to collagify!
I started with the “first” card base – Basic Black at 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/2″. The “Flip” is Basic Black, 3″ x 8 1/2″, scored and folded at 4 1/4″.
I used the gorgeous Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the front short panel of the first card base and on the inside back – both pieces are matted on Pool Party and adhered with Liquid Glue.
On the flip card base, I used my Stamparatus to stamp the sentiments from Peaceful Moments in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on two Whisper White panels. On the inside panel, I also stamped two of the flowers from the Painted Poppies stamp set in Basic Gray – then I colored them with my Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Combo. I matted each on Pool Party and adhered them inside the smaller flip card base.
Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the small card inside the larger card base.
For my collage, I used multiple dies from the Poppy Moments Die set to cut my flower and a bevy of leaf parts. The flower has a solid piece of Petal Pink (I used a Sponge Dauber to ink the edges with Petal Pink ink) then I adhered a Basic Gray detailed flower with Liquid Glue. I cut a large flower center from Champagne Foil and adhered it with Liquid Glue, then I popped a smaller Black Foil center on top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the leaves, I cut solid and detailed leaves in Pool Party and Champagne Foil, and also in Pool Party vellum from the So Very Vellum Specialty DSP (coming on 3 March in the second Sale-A-Bration Release!). I glued the leaf parts together and then…started doing my dry-fit on the front of the card (which is the front of the smaller flip card base!
When I was happy – I took a picture with my phone…
Then I picked up the flower and took a second picture.
I adhered all the leaves with Liquid Glue.
Using Whisper White Solid Baker’s Twine, I made a loose double-loop figure-eight (I show this in the video!) and stuck it in the middle of the leaves with a couple of Glue Dots. Then I popped the flower over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I added a Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewel – and the card was done!
My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Painted Poppies flower in Basic Gray and Petal Pink on the front…
…and a little more Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! This Double-Flip Fun Fold is crazy easy so I hope you’ll try it soon! I also wanted you to see how well the Peaceful Moments and Painted Poppies Bundles work with other papers like this Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP! The Peaceful Poppies DSP is gorgeous but…don’t be afraid to mix-and-match! I hope you like! 🙂

On Wednesday, we picked up a new toilet.
Yes – the life of a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator is glamourous, indeed.
We’ve needed a new toilet for a minute – in our second bathroom.
By minute, I mean…well. A MINUTE!
FINALLY broke down and paid for a “special order” toilet. Meaning – we wanted it in bone. Seriously?!? BONE is a “special order”?!?
Why yes. Yes it is.
Anywho – we finally got it.
So the menfolk put it in on Wednesday evening.
Gettin’ that old one out’s gonna be a booger, Dad. You’re prolly gonna get wet!
Wiggle it, Dad – you gotta get it down on that wax thingy!
Doya need a tool or anything?? I’m a little thirsty…..how much longer were ya thinkin’??
Hmmm. Those’r some complicated directions. Why we reading directions?? We MEN! Don’t need no stinkin’ directions!
Mary’s note: that last picture is probably Pulitzer worthy. Rare sighting of y-chromosomes reading instructions!
