Gather Together Bundle with Inside Mountain Valley Fold Fun Fold Glitter Queen Hop

Gather Together Bundle with Inside Mountain Valley Fold Fun Fold Glitter Queen Hop

Hi Everyone! Welcome to another Glitter Queen Hop! It’s a Fall Fun-Fold Fantastic Hop theme!

I’m excited to share with you this easy to add Mountain Valley fold to the inside of any card.

I like it horizontal on the inside and I’m sure you could make it vertically too!

To make the mountain valley fold component, take a 1″ x 11″ strip of cardstock and score at 2-3/4″, 5-1/2″ and 8-1/2″. The mountain fold is the center fold at 5-1/2″ and the other 2 scores are the valley folds.

Cardbase: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored in half at 5-1/2″
3 sets of layering sections: 4-1/” x 5-3/8″ cardstock & 4″ x 5-1/4″ Designer Paper
Mountain Valley insert as stated above: 1″ x 11″ strip of cardstock and score at 2-3/4″, 5-1/2″ and 8-1/2″. The mountain fold is the center fold at 5-1/2″ and the other 2 scores are the valley folds.
For layering squares: (4) 2″ x 2″ Whisper White & (3) 1-7/8″ x 1-7/8″ Designer Paper

General Instructions:

  • Add layering sections to front and inside of card.
  •  Add the Mountain Valley fold strip to the inside of the card as shown. Either end of the strip (think 1st section and the last 4th section) get glued down completely. the 2 center folds are not adhered.
  •  Stamp images on the plain whisper white cardstock square.
  • Layer Designer Paper Squares unto the whisper white squares. Add all four squares to the inside of the card
  • Using Gather Together Bundle, create elements for the Stitched Nested Labels Die. Adhere to front of card.
  • After toothbrush splatter, add Shimmery Crystal Effects to the pumpkins.

The copper shimmer paint is on the clearance rack at the time of the post! and perfect for all accents. I used a dedicated toothbrush to splatter the paint on the front and inside of the card.

What’s Up Wednesdays – Fall Cards with Stand Alone Stamps

What’s Up Wednesdays – Fall Cards with Stand Alone Stamps

Hi Everyone! Today’s What’s Up Wednesdays is about stamps that are not part of a bundle. Meaning they do not come with coordinating dies or punches.

I confess to gravitating toward the bundles when a new catalog is launched! But then go back and look at the possibilities of other stamps! And the background stamps or stamp sets add interest to your cards or projects!

So here are 2 cards using Non-Bundled, stand alone stamp sets that you many enjoy as much as I do! These cards are what we are making at my in-person classes this week.

General Instructions for Many Blessings Card Above: – Run Crumb Cake Cardstock layer and Pumpkin Pie Scallop thru the Subtle embossing folder. Stamp pumpkins as shown.  Layer crumb cake onto card base. Use the Detailed Trio Punch to punch ribbon holes at top. Color using Stampin’ Blends. Add linen thread and chicken wire element to card base and add pumpkin embellishment. I had some retired twine in my stash to use as my ribbon. Color rhinestones with Blends and add to the card.

General Instructions for Country Home Below: Stamp Buffalo Check using Crushed Curry ink. Stamp Gallery Grunge image in Soft Sea Foam ink. Layer unto Crushed Curry Cardstock then unto Very Vanilla card base. Add chicken wire element. Stamp images from Country Home then die cut using Layering Ovals. Color using Stampin’ Blends. Add to card. Add linen thread and rhinestones.

Swirly Squiggles Pumpkin with Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper

Swirly Scribbles Pumpkin

Hi Everyone! Swirly Squiggles Thinlits Die was top of my list when the 2016-2017 Stampin' UP! Catalog came out. BUT I hadn't dreamed of the other shapes we are all creating. This card will be used in my local card class next week. They can sub out the sentiment but I wanted to show an "adult" Halloween card option!

How good is the PUMPKIN PIE GLIMMER Paper for Fall? So good! Great for Halloween and Fall bling on our cards and projects. PLUS image if your school colors had orange in it…Awesome!

The leaves are from last month's promotion Thoughtful Branches. Stampin' UP! still has some bundles available but now they are while supplies last.


General Instructions:
Using the Big Shot Precision Plate – die cut the pumpkin from Swirly Squiggles and the leaf from Thoughtful Branches. Stamp images from Thoughtful Branches and sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes. Using Gold Wink of Stella – spatter gold flecks.

Funky Pumpkins using Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Paper

Pumpkin Punch ArtHi Everyone! Todays card was inspired by some funky pumpkins I got over the weekend. I love the crazy looking ones. So I thought why not make a funky pumpkin out of the Petals & Paisleys Specialty Designer Series Paper out of the Holiday Catalog! Below is this card in mass production mode! It will be used in an upcoming swap. What's great is that it doesn't take a lot of paper and it was fun to mix and match the patterns within the Designer Paper to put together all kinds of funky pumpkins!.

DSCN6152I can't officially call it punch art because I used the Layering Oval Framelits. So I guess it's die cut art! Ink around the edges to make each section pop.

DSCN6151General Instructions – Die cut the ovals. Ink around the edges with a sponge dauber and Cajun Craze Classic Ink. Glue ovals together. Free hand cut stem and vine. Glue in the back. Run Very Vanilla Cardstock through the Big Shot using Pretty Paisley Embossing Folder. Ink raised images. Stamp and punch sentiment. Add Gold Thread and Linen Tread behind.

Rich Razzelberry Cardstock 8-1/2 x 5-1/2
Very Vanilla Cardstock 4 x 5-1/4
Scraps of Cajun Craze and Mint Macroon Cardstock
