Welcome to our May TEAM Blog Hop!  I am excited about this month's theme - Everything Masculine - because we can all use a masculine card, especially with Father's Day just around the corner.

I have a special project for you.  A Double Opening Card!  Let's take a look...

  • mask your scored line with Post-It notes
  • Stamp man in chair in Memento Ink on right flap
  • Stamp man in chair on a Post-It note then fussy cut him out.  Cut around his legs so you can get coloring under chair
  • Using Blending Brushes, sponge Pale Papaya at top then work down with So Saffron, Balmy Blue then Crumb Cake
  • Stamp "sand" speckles at bottom in Crumb Cake
  • Color man with Stampin' Blends Alcohol Markers (Light Night of Navy for hat, dark Daffodil Delight for shirt, Light Misty Moonlight for shorts, dark Mint Macaron for chair, and Light Petal Pink for skin)

You can now adhere your Very Vanilla folded card to the piece of Soft Suede and then add that to the Coastal Cabana card base.

World of Good Pop-Up Book Card

There is something about a great product suite that is not only masculine, but old world, has lots of foils and is just easy to work with.  Well, this New product suite called World of Good offers all of that! 

So I bit the bullet ladies.... I held my first Zoom card class.  I have been a guest on many Zoom meetings but I had not hosted my own meeting.  So I took a leap of faith and said, just go for it an see what happens.  Luckily, I think it went pretty well.  I wanted to be able to connect and stamp with others so I offered a free creative fold class.  

Everyone picked out there own designer series paper with two or three designs and some coordinating card stock.  I walked them through how to make this really cool pop-up book card. 

For my card, I chose to use the World of Good product suite and I absolutely love how it came out.   I highly recommend the Stampin' Up! Paper Trimmer for this card!

Here's the front of the card...

So as you can see, how I designed mine, there is no space for you to write anything or sign it.  Here are 2 options to work around that:

  • as a piece of Very Vanilla card stock to the back of the card for your final sentiment and writing/signing the card
  • or... my two Very Vanilla pieces on the inside pop-up, use one of those for your writing/signing

Note:  as I was not able to pre-order the Coordinating Brass Foil Sheets, I used with Gold Foil.  I included the Brass Foil Sheets in my Supply list below

I ended up turning this card into a Father's Day Card.  I did not take a photo for sentimental reasons, but I used words from the "A Good Man" stamp set which was a nice touch.

Swing Fold Card with Poppies

So I waited a few weeks to post this card project on my blog.  My Video has been out for a few weeks now on My YouTube channel.  I would completely appreciate your following so be sure to subscribe. 

It seemed like all my current projects have been with the Peaceful Poppies Suite so I have been trying to go to some other great things in my stash.  Well, let me tell you... I keep reaching for them!  Must mean I really like the suite, and well, I do.  Everything coordinates just so, you can make some quick and easy projects or really doc them up into intricate pieces of art. 

For this project I show you how to make a SWING FOLD CARD.

Noble Peacock in 3 Colors

PicsArt_04-09-09.22.08

Guys, I have no idea what I have been waiting for!  I do not know why I have neglected this really cool stamp set, dies, and the BEST foil papers!  The Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper AND Noble Peacock Foil Sheets are just stunning.  I love that fact that they coordinate together.  

I have to laugh at myself... every time I look at the tail feathers, all I can think of is a Vegas Showgirl costume.  LOL!

Anyway, here are three monochromatic cards I did in Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay. Yes!  Bermuda Bay... I think this is a BONUS coordinating color with the Specialty DSP, don't you?  The catalog and packaging says Pretty Peacock but I think you can use either one.

DIMS:  

  • Card base is standard 8-1/2 x 5-1/2"
  • Specialty DSP is 5-1/4 x 4"
  • Mat under white measures 5-1/4 x 2-3/4"
  • Whisper White is 5-1/4 x 3"

Stamp Colors... there is a stamp to add detail to the Peacock's feathers and here is what I used:

  • Blueberry Bushel with tail feather accent color in Old Olive
  • Old Olive with tail feather accent color in Bermuda Bay
  • Bermuda Bay with tail feather accent color in Pretty Peacock
  • The Stamparatus helps align the details feather stamp

Try mixing and matching different color combinations and see how it turns out!

Well, the 2019-2020 Annual Catalog is here so I better get on the ball and start sharing some great new items and projects.  Seriously, there are some really beautiful papers, stamps, embellishments, and more.  I think this is my favorite catalog out of the last few years.

Using Designer Series Paper

Using Designer Series Paper (DSP) is a great way to dress up a card and to use up scrap pieces, like I did for the reindeer card.  

All Is Bright DSP is so beautiful with life-like images on some of the sheets, like these ornaments.  The card is also featuring the Dashing Deer Bundle.  The leaping deer is cut out of Gold Glimmer paper.  Have you tried our New Glimmer Papers that came out in the June Annual Catalog?  It is the best out there... no glitter everywhere when you cut, die cut or punch out! 

Dashing Deer Creative Fold:  8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base Score at 1" and 4-1/4"

Full Supply List Below

 Next, the Frosted Florals DSP is absolutely gorgeous!  The paper is frosted with shimmer (hard to capture in a photo).  I coordinated with the First Frost Bundle (stamp set & thinlit dies) to create a little bouquet of flowers and leaves (done in Pear Pizzazz, Vellum, & Galvanized Foil papers).  The main colors are Blackberry Bliss and Pear Pizzazz with a Frosted Epoxy Droplet.  

 Creative Fold:  card base is 11" x 4-1/4"  and scored at 2-3/4" and 5-1/2" (mats are 2-1/2" x 4" and 5-1/4" x 4")

Inner folded case stock:  3" x 9" and scored at 3" and 6" (mats 2-3/4" squares)

Remember:    when adhering down the top square of inner front piece (front with flowers), make sure to only put adhesive on the top half.
