Good morning everyone and welcome to the Fun Folds Blog Hop for Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators! We’ve got a talented line-up and…I think you’re going to like what you see! This’ll be a once-a-month hop and…all our cards will be fun folds!! Whoo-hoo!
At our retreat last weekend, my friend Karen Ksenzakovic gave us all adorable little sticky notepad holders – that are ALSO easel folds! I loved it so much that I asked for her permission to make my own to share with you – and she said yes! Thanks, Karen K!
Mine features the available-soon Framed & Festive stamp set, plus the Fitting Florets DSP. I actually made three different versions using the entire new suite – including the Framed Florets Bundle! Here’s the first one I made – it’s perfect for Christmas!
The fold is really quick and easy – so you can really have fun with your decorating!
It starts with a 3 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock for the base. Using my Simply Scored Score Tool, I scored along the long side at 4 1/4″ and 6 3/8″. Folding both score lines in the same direction creates the easel base.
I use Liquid Glue to adhere a piece of Fitting Florets DSP to a Polished Pink mat – and then to a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Night of Navy cardstock. That’s the easel panel itself!
Using the oval die in the new Framed Florets die set (part of the bundle of the same name – and available on 1 Nov. Or…you know…TODAY!! 😉 ) I cut out a Basic White oval and popped it onto the front of the easel panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used the large leaf die in the Framed Florets set to cut out a Balmy Blue leaf and adhered it to the oval with Liquid Glue.
Then I cut out two small leaves from gold Glimmer 12″ x 12″ Specialty Paper – and adhered one over the Balmy Blue leaf.
On a piece of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the pretty floral from the Framed Florets set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink – then cut it out with the coordinating die from the set. I colored the flowers and leaves using my Polished Pink and Soft Succulent Stampin’ Blends.
I adhered the die cut flowers to the oval with Liquid Glue – then slid the second small Glimmer leaf under the right side of the die cut, adhering it with Liquid Glue.
I stamped the Framed & Festive sentiment in Polished Pink on a narrow strip of Basic White, snipped banner ends and popped it in place with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
A few of the Gold Adhesive-backed Swirls embellishments – part of the new suite! – on the front of the easel finished it off.
I adhered the completed panel to the lower panel of the easel base using Liquid Glue – and the front/easel was done!
I used Stampin’ Seal + to adhere a sticky note pad on the inside and this one was done!
I mentioned that I’d made a couple more. They go together EXACTLY the same way. Check it.
