Fun Fold card

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Treats, Toil and Trouble for the Amy’ Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop!

Good mornin’, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month we’re doing Halloween Fun!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

Before I get going – let’s just acknowledge the historical import of this day in the history of our Country.  I know I will always remember that day – where I was, what we were doing, what I felt as I raced to work – hoping my boss/friend hadn’t already gotten on an airplane and that the folks I knew were in D.C weren’t at the Pentagon.  I know y’all remember it as well.  As we must.  We must never – ever – forget.

So – okay.  On with the card.

I pulled out the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and bundled Cauldron Framelits – paired them with some Toil & Trouble DSP and some Spooky Bats Punch shapes.  Take a look-see at the Double Easel Fun Fold that I created with them!

What I love about Double-Easels is that – with just an extra piece or two of card stock and a few extra score-and-folds, you’ve got a WOW card!

I started with the Double Easel in Basic Black.  I cut a piece at 4″ x 10 1/4″ and scored and folded it at 5 1/4″ x 7 3/4″.  Then I matted three pieces of new Toil & Trouble DSP on Granny Apple Green and adhered them to the easel.

I cut a piece of Copper Glimmer Paper from the Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper Pack with my Circle Layering Framelits and adhered it to the front “mountain” fold with Liquid Glue on just the bottom portion.

I stamped the sweet little witch from Cauldron Bubble in Tuxedo Black on a piece of Whisper White and colored her with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Highland Heather, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green, Pumpkin Pie and Pineapple Punch Stampin’ Blends.  Then I cut her out with the matching die in the Cauldron Framelits.  I also cut a cauldron and a kitty from one of the pieces of Toil & Trouble DSP (how cool is that?!).

I scooped up a little Shimmery White Embossing Paste and colored it with a drop of Granny Apple Green Ink Refill – then I sort of piled it onto the “stuff” pouring out the top of the cauldron – I used a toothpick to build it up!

From some Black Foil, I cut a spider web from a Cauldron Thinlit and a few Spooky Bats punched shapes.

I used Liquid Glue to build the little “scene”.  Yep – no dimensionals….yet! 😉

I removed the “hangar” from a Spider Trinket and adhered him with a Glue Dot to the Black Foil spider web.  The sentiment, from Cauldron Bubble is stamped in Highland Heather on Whisper White and snipped out.  I used a Glue Dot to adhere two of the words to the bubbly stuff.

Across the large panel, I adhered a length of new Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon, using a couple of Glue Dots to adhere it to the back of the panel.  Then I added a new Snowflakes & Stars Wire Element with a Glue Dot and another Spooky Bat with some Liquid Glue.  A bow, adhered with a Glue Dot, finished it off.

On the inside, I stamped the cauldron from Cauldron Bubble in Tuxedo Black on a Whisper White panel, then I colored it with my Light and Dark Smoky Slate, Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody and Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends.  I added the rest of the fussy cut sentiment words with Liquid Glue and stamped the second Cauldron Bubble sentiment underneath in Tuxedo Black.

I matted the panel on Granny Apple Green and Basic Black with Liquid Glue and then adhered the panel into my Highland Heather card base, popped the double-easel card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Cauldron on the front….

…and some more star-strewn Toil & Trouble DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  Now – it appears there are a lot of steps here – and there sort of are.  But – those are “cake decorating” steps.  The “cake” itself (the actual double-easel) is easy peasy.  I just sort of got carried away with all the fun goodies in the Cauldron Bubble bundle and the spooky-cool Toil & Trouble DSP!  You can make your double-easel as simple or complex as you like.  Just….MAKE a double-easel!  Hope you like!

Now that you’ve seen my card, I hope you’ll take a little time to jump thru all the other projects we have to share. Click any name below, or you can use the Previous Blog button to jump to Julie’s page or the Next Blog button to see what Karen’s been up to!

Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Bubble PeekABoo Fun Fold Card

Well – it’s back.

Monday, that is! Bleh!

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for the week.

Don’t suppose it really matters if you’re NOT ready, cuz…

Yep.  It’s gonna happen!

If you were able to join me last night for my FB live video – thanks for spending part of your weekend with me!  We had a good time, I think!  If you weren’t able to be with us, but would like to see how to make today’s Fun Fold, here’s the link to the Memorex version on YouTube!

The Peekaboo fun fold is kind of all over Pinterest and YouTube right now – lots of videos to watch. Which I did!  And then I made my own!

I’ve actually made two now, both with the new Cauldron Bubble stamp set and some fun DSP from the Toil & Trouble DSP in the 2018 Holiday Catalog.  Take a look-see.

This is the one I gave you the sneak peek of yesterday morning – all Black and Highland Heather and Smoky Slate!

Then I changed up the DSP and the color scheme in the video.

For both of them – I did some tone-on-tone stamping on the front with the cat or ghost image from Cauldron Bubble – Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie or Highland Heather on Highland Heather!

This kind of card is a lot easier to ‘splain in a video (which I do!) – so I’ll just share a few more pictures – and the card cuts are all down below!

I used the new and oh-so-cool Black 5/8″ Glittered Organdy Ribbon and some Black Foil on both cards, as well as the adorable (and not even a little bit scary!) Spider Trinkets!

You can see that the layout is the same…

…as is the technique to make the mechanism work!

As usual, I decorated my Whisper White Medium Envelopes with images that coordinate with my cards…

…and I added the matching Toil & Trouble DSP to the envelope flaps!

Et Voila!  So – this is SUCH a fun card – with a surprise for your recipient when they open it up!  And – since it’s really pretty easy to make – you NEED to do one for yourself!  The video shows you how to “make the cake” – and I’ve used Halloween themed images from Cauldron Bubble and the Toil & Trouble DSP to “decorate the cake”.  But – you can make your cake and decorate it however you like – Thanksgiving!  Christmas!  Just-cuz-it’s Tuesday!!  Have fun with it.  Hope you like!

We cut and chopped shares this weekend!

The men in my life (well…two of the four men in my life!) dealt with the work quite…differently.

Guess which one is going to Greece with me next year?!?

Just sayin’!

Stampin’ Up! Cauldron Bubble Fun Fold Sneak Peek

Happy Sunday!  Hope you’re having a great weekend!

We did some share chopping yesterday – got most of the paper shares in the mail.  Today is ribbon winding and chopping – and, when we get done, maybe a trip to Costco?  Time will tell!

Tonight we’ll be making a card together – at least, I HOPE all y’all will be able to join me – on my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page.  It’s a Fun Fun-fold (which I suppose would be an F3Card?).  And it may or may not be THIS exact card – the fun fold will be the same, but…we may do Thanksgiving.  Or…Christmas!  Take a Sneaky Peek!

It’ll all depend on my mood as we approach 8pm eastern!

Only time will tell.

I do hope you can join me!  8pm.  Eastern.  Here!

I’m not really going to say much about today’s picture.

Other than to, perhaps, wax eloquent on the extraordinary sweetness of this face.

Yes – he’s got his feet up on my lap.  He’s got his collar in his mouth – because…why NOT hold your collar?  And he’s giving me “the eyes.”

He can have pretty much whatever he wants from me.  And he totally knows it.

I’m a goner.

Stampin’ Up! Frosted Floral Fun-Fold Shutter Card!

Good Monday, y’all!  And – since it’s a Holiday, it truly is an actual GOOD Monday! 🙂

If you were able to join me last night for my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending part of your long-weekend with me (and for being patient in the middle of my network difficulties!).  If not, but you’d like to see the replay, here it is on YouTube.  Be aware that it starts a little disjointedly – my network dropped us near the beginning of the video – but you’ll get to see the whole card being made!

The card we made last night – a Shutter Fun Fold – uses paper from the 2018 Holiday Catalog called Frosted Floral Specialty DSP.  And it is gorgeous!  I pulled some goodies from the Annual Catalog, too – the Hello Kitty stamp set and the fun Cat Punch.  Take a look-see:

The front was inspired by this week’s TGIF challenge!  I went straight down the right side column!

A Shutter Card looks just like a regular Gate Card from the outside – complete with a decorated belly band.

In this case, I used a couple of Stitched Shapes Framelits circles – a Whisper White and Frosted Floral DSP circle – atop a Mint Macaron scalloped circle.  The sentiment is from Pretty Kitty, stamped in Blackberry Bliss on Sea Foam card stock and cut with the Classic Label Punch.  It’s all adhered to a 1″ wide Soft Sea Foam belly band.

The fun of a Shutter Card really gets going when you open it up!

This fold looks way more complicated than it is – and the video will show you just how easy it is to cut and assemble – so I hope you’ll give it a watch!  Th sentiment, from Pretty Kitty, is stamped in Blackberry Bliss.  Over that, I added one of the sweet kitty images from the set – in stamped-off-once Soft Sea Foam.

I added the same cute image from Pretty Kitty to the front of the Whisper White Envelope…

…and, as usual, gave the flap a little more of the Frosted Floral DSP!

Et Voila!  This is an easy fold to make, y’all – and you can decorate it however you wish! So watch the tutorial and try one for yourself! Hope you like!

Labor Day.

The very name invokes….bar-b-que!  Corn on the cob!  Baked Beans!  Watermelon!

Of those – only ONE is Finn-Friendly.

To be fair – he’d EAT all of them.

And…we’d ALL regret that later.

But.  There’s ONE…

A little watermelon on a hot summer day.  Yum!!

Stampin’ Up! Joyous Dashing Deer Sneak Peek Fun Fold!

Good morning, my peeps!

Well – I made a dent in my crafting spot yesterday.  Sorta got distracted by alphabetizing all my stamps and getting them back in their spot.  And rainbow-izing my Stampin’ Blends.

Don’t judge – these are very important organizing necessities!

And – with it all organized (for a half-a-second!) I can get back to card making! 🙂

Fortunately, I made a card last week before I left Cali – so…here we go!  I’m using the pretty new Dashing Deer bundle in the 2018 Holiday Catalog and I made it into an Easel Fun Fold card!  Take a look-see:

The layout for the front of my easel is from this week’s MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge!

And – since it’s a Fun Fold…so I played along with the Paper Craft Crew Challenge!

Finally – I’m pretty sure Christmas is an “Occasion”, so….boom – playing along with Helen at the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!

This is one of my favorite fun-folds, and it’s so darned easy!

I started with a piece of Gray Granite card stock, cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ – and I scored and folded it at 5 1/2″ and then again at 8 3/8″ – to make the easel card base.

For the card front, I used my Pretty Pines pine bough and pinecone dies, and the new Big Shot Embossing Pads, to emboss a Whisper White panel with pine-y goodness.  Then I adhered the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat with Liquid Glue.

 

I cut a piece of Joyous Noel Specialty DSP and matted it on Tranquil Tide, then adhered it to the card front with Liquid Glue.

For the art, I cut a Stitched Shapes Framelits circle and embossed it in the Pinewood Planks Dynamic TIEF, then popped it onto the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The Detailed Deer is cut from a piece of Copper paper in the new Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper – then I stuck him on the embossed circle with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the Dashing Deer sentiment in Merry Merlot onto a piece of Whisper White and cut it out with the label die in the new Night Owl Thinlits (coming on 5 Sept in the Holiday Catalog).  Then I used a little Liquid Glue under the left end and a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right side to adhere it.  See how I so cleverly tucked the sentiment under the deer’s front leg?

Yes – I’m an artistic genius. 😉

While I had the Night Owl Thinlits out, I cut a bunch of snowflake-y stars out of the Merry Merlot Joyous Noel 6″ x 6″ Glimmer Paper and adhered them with Liquid Glue hither and thither about the card front – and that was it!

I made the easel “stop” by matting a little more Joyous Noel Specialty DSP on Tranquil Tide and adhering it to a Whisper White panel.  I colored a new Festive Farmhouse Elements by pressing it into my Merry Merlot ink pad, then I adhered it to the DSP strip with Liquid Glue.

I stamped a second Dashing Deer sentiment in Merry Merlot.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Tranquil Tide mat and into the Gray Granite card base.  Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere the smaller flap of the card front to the lower part of the card front – that’s how the easel is formed!  And that was it for the card!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got a smaller Gold-embossed Dashing Deer on the front – I inked the image in Versamark, stamped the envelope and sprinkled it with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, then heated it up with my Heat Tool…oooh – now you can really see the embossed pine cones…. 🙂

…then I added some more of the Joyous Noel Specialty DSP to the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  The easel fold gives what is really a basic card a whole ‘nuther level of “WOW”, does it not?!  And it doesn’t hurt to have beautiful Dashing Deer and Detailed Deer leaping all about, either!  Especially with the added benefit of some gorgeous Joyous Noel Specialty DSP.  Hope you like!

We had a little…Man-scaping to do when I got home.  The Menfolk had been playing in the sticker grass (apparently) AND not doing a super-good job with the brush.

And ya just can’t do that when you wear a skirt and leggings and pantaloonies!!

So – Mom got after it!

Still got some more to do – but a Man can only be -scaped for so long before he starts to get antsy!  And worried about the status of his Man-card!

Stampin’ Up! Little Twinkle Double-Easel Fun Fold

Good Saturday morning, y’all!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend planned!  I’ll be working AND it’s supposed to be 110F!  YIKES!

If you were able to join me last night for my sort of “pop-up” Facebook Live video – thank you so much!  If not – but you’d like to see how to make today’s fun-fold…check the instant replay right here!

I’ve seen some Double Easel cards around in the blog-i-sphere in the past couple of weeks and I love a “regular” single-easel card, so…figuring TWO must be twice as good, I decided to do one of my own!  I made mine with the Little Twinkle stamp set and coordinating Twinkle Twinkle DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Little Twinkle Fun Fold Video Sneak Peek

Hey folks!  It’s Friday!  But for me – that doesn’t mean it’s almost the weekend.

Well.  It DOES – it just doesn’t mean I’ll be off work!

We’re headed into long days and few days off as we get spun up, so…

I realized the other day that doing a Facebook Live Video on Sunday may be…problematic…

So – I decided to try to do it tonight.  This is definitely the last video tutorial until after I get back from the cruise.  I’ll do some videos ON the cruise for you – not necessarily at set times, so be sure you’ve liked my Stamps-N-Lingers FB page so that you’re notified!  I hope to share the ship and maybe some glaciers and whales with you while we’re gone!

But – I digress.  Tonight, we’ll try to get together for that last time – I hope to be back to the hotel by 5 (8 eastern), but…you might watch.  I’ll try to post an update if we’re going to be late.

And what will we be making?  I’m going to share a new-to-me fun fold and it’ll feature the new Twinkle Twinkle Suite of goodies!  Take a sneaky peek!
