But – we’ve got a week!  So – let’s start it with a super fun fun-fold, shall we?  If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video to see how I made this – thanks for spending part of your weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to see the instant-ish replay – here ’tis!

Stampin’ Up! Magical Mermaid Tranquil Textures Fun Fold Card

Good morning, y’all!  And – even though it’s Monday, it’s REALLY still the weekend – so….it really is a HAPPY MONDAY!

If you were able to join me last night on my Facebook Live video, I sure appreciate you spending part of your holiday weekend with me.  If not – but would like to see how to make this fun-fold card – here’s the video for you on YouTube!

Fair warning – my directions in this blog post aren’t going to be terribly detailed – it’s a heckuva lot easier to show this kind of card than to tell you how to do it!

Which makes you think it’s hard.

But it isn’t.

Just doesn’t lend itself too efficiently to the written directions format! 🙂

So – this is a bridge card that I made with the Magical Mermaid stamp set (carrying over) and the goodies in the new Tranquil Textures Suite – specifically the Sea of Textures stamp set and bundled Under the Sea Framelits, plus the gorgeous Tranquil Textures DSP.  Take a look-see:

Bleh bleh bleh!!  Yes, I’m happy to be home, but…I’d like a month of weekends, please!  And no work.  And no specter of future travel to places in Utah….I say again. BLEH BLEH BLEEEEEHHHHH!!

Okay – my self-blehing pity party is over.

Thank you for listening!

Stampin’ Up! Pop-Up Daisy Video Sneak Peek!

Happy Sunday, y’all!  Hope your weekend is going well!

We spent Saturday….gardening.  I unpacked a little.  Gave Wayne a haircut.  Did some more brushing on the fur-bucket.  Took a little nap or two.     It was a nice day – punctuated with a solid rain/thunderstorm mid-afternoon, so it was even a little cooler when it was time to feed in the evening!

So – I figure you’ve come to expect that my Sunday post will contain a little sneak peek of what I’m going to be working on in my Sunday evening Facebook Live video.  And – today is no exception!

I know you can see a daisy there…so you know we’ll be playing with that cool Daisy Punch!  It’ll be back on the 31st – and this will be a fun card to be all ready to make when you get it in your hot little hands!  It’s a fun-fold card – and…we’re going to hope I can make it again while on camera!  Fingers crossed!   Continue reading

Stampin’ Up! Colorful Seasonal Layers Centerfold Card

Hey y’all – good morning!  I’m really sorry I wasn’t able to do the FB live video last night – we got off work later than I’d planned.  And I had to be back early this morning.  I hope you’ll understand!

I’ll try to be back on next Sunday – and we’ll do this card, or a different one!  It’ll be a surprise! 🙂  Let me know if you want to see how to do this one – or a different one entirely!!

I saw a pretty card on another blog-site (seriously can’t remember which one – is it Christmas?  Tuesday?  Don’t know if I’m coming or going!!) that was a centerfold card using the Delightful Daisy bundle.  I decided to try one with the Colorful Seasons bundle.  And some Whole Lot of Lovely DSP.  Take a look-see:

These are a lot like a regular gate card – but the “gates” are narrower – so you can see the inside of the card!

I started with a piece of Basic Black card stock – cut to 5 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.  I scored and folded it twice – at 1 5/8″ from each end, along the long side.

The gate panels are two pieces of Whole Lot of Lovely DSP, matted on Tangerine Tango card stock, and adhered with some Liquid Glue to the front of the gates.

The inner liner is a piece of Whisper White, matted on Tangerine Tango.  I laid it inside the card, where I planned to adhere it.  Then, I closed the gate panels and, using the sentiment from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, added that in Basic Black Archival ink.  I let the closed gate panels give me the “spot” that the sentiment wanted to go.

To decorate the outside of the card, I cut three branches from Basic Black card stock, using the die in the Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  I also cut one from Pear Pizzazz card stock.  I stacked them all up, adhering them with Liquid Glue and then I added it to the “top” gate panel.  I made the branch so thick in order to give it a little protection, since it extends over the edge of the gate.

I used a few flower dies from Seasonal Layers to cut some from Pool Party, Tangerine Tango and Powder Pink card stock, plus some in Whisper White. I adhered them together with Liquid Glue, smushed the middles in lightly with a stylus, and stuck them on the branch with – yes! – Liquid Glue! A few Glitter Enamel Dots for the flower centers finished that embellishment off.

Using the adirondack chair die in Seasonal Layers, I cut two chairs – one in Basic Black and one in Pool Party.  I adhered them together and then to the “bottom” gate with Liquid Glue.  And that was it for the front of the card.

Going back inside, using Sticky Notes to protect the Tangerine Tango mat, I stamped two branches in Soft Suede, using the image in the Colorful Seasons stamp set.  Then I added some flowers in Pool Party and Powder Pink.  The Pool Party flowers are two-step images.

I SNAILd the panel inside the card base, and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got another Colorful Seasons branch and flowers – in Soft Suede and Powder Pink – on the front…they look just like cherry blossoms, don’t you think??

…and another piece of Whole Lot of Lovely DSP on the envelope flap.

Et Voila!  This is really a super easy fun-fold card to make – and I love how the die cuts extend into the opening created by the gate panels.  I think the Colorful Seasons Bundle works perfectly for it, don’t you?  Hope you like!
