Brewed For You Angled Gate Fold Card

While looking for inspiration for my August 7th Facebook Live, I discovered that it was National Beer Lovers Day. SO, I decided to pay tribute to all those who enjoy a cold brew by using the Brewed For You Stamp Set & coordinating Brewed Dies. AND, I also wanted to demonstrate how to make an Angled Gate Fold Card at the request of one of my Stampin' Peace followers. I love the fun fold card I came up with this for this Facebook Live and am sharing the Video Replay of the demonstration for you here. I hope this demonstration inspires you to make an Angled Gate Fold Card (or a few) and perhaps, add the Brewed For You Bundle to your next order. I was thinking in the demonstration as you will hear, that you could easily make a frosty mug of root beer by changing out the Crushed Curry ink to Early Espresso ink thus making this bundle a bit more versatile. Either way, it's fun to create with.

Fresh Cut Flowers Fun Fold Card

Z-Fold Cards are one of the easiest Fun Fold Cards to make. In this Video Replay of my September 2, 2022, Facebook Live, I show how to make a variation of the traditional Z-Fold card. It's easy and fun, and I think you're going to love it. The card features the beautiful Fresh Cut Flowers Stamp Set and coordinating Fresh Cut Stems Dies. I hope this video demonstration and information below inspires you to make a card using this layout and/or the Fresh Cut Flowers Bundle.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Card base = 4 1/4" x 11", score at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2" on long side, fold opposite directions on score lines.
  • Basic White for card front and inside of card = 5 1/4" x 4"

Splendid Thoughts Fun Fold Cards

Card swaps are a great way to be inspired and get new project ideas and card layouts. In my August 19th Facebook Live, I demonstrated a Fun Fold Card I learned from a swap card created by fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and friend, Renee Kohnke. I love it and think you will too. This fun fold is similar to a Side-Step Card but much easier. Enjoy this Facebook Live Replay, then plan to make a few of this new-to-me Fun Fold Card. Perhaps, it's new to you too. My cards feature the Splendid Day Suite with its gorgeous Specialty Designer Series Paper and stamp set & dies.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Large Z-Fold card base = 5 1/2" x 8" (not 8 1/2"), scored at 1", 2", 5" on long side
  • Card front panel = 3" x 6", scored at 4 1/4" on long side
  • Basic White inside card = 5 1/4" x 2 3/4"
  • DSP 1 = 5 1/4" x 2 3/4" and 5 1/4" x 3/4"
  • DSP 2 = 4" x 2 3/4"

The following card is very similar to the one above, however, I used the reverse side of each piece of the Splendid Day Designer Series Paper, decorated the card front differently and without a sentiment, and have the front panel left of center.

He's the Man Gift Box with Hinged Lid

I love to create fun gift bags and boxes. Today, I'm exited to share one of those with you. I received this Gift Box with Hinged Lid from my friend and SU! team member at a recent girls' craft weekend. I immediately thought of ways I could make and use more of these. The possibilities are endless!

Stampin' Up! - Mary Knabe (6)
Stampin' Up! - Mary Knabe (6)

 

Enjoy this this Replay of my August 15th Facebook Live then make note of or print the template so you can make these fabulous gift boxes on your own. What a great way to package little gifts or gift cards!

 

Templates for Gift Box with Hinged Lid

  • You'll want to make the bottom of the box first, then the top. Be sure to watch video to see how the box is put together once you've cut and scored your card stock and designer series paper.

Below are a few of the gift boxes I made with the He's The Man Designer Series Paper.

Remember that mistake I made in the Live demonstration? Yep, I had my template upside down when I glanced over at it. Ever do something like that? Well, it happens. BUT, look what I did here? I used the opposite side of the DSP and was able to make it work for another gift box.

With a new school year starting for many, the thought of using this gift box with hinged lid for teacher appreciation gifts. Chocolates, gift cards, paper clips & office supplies are just a few of the many items you can put in these for your favorite teachers, classroom aides, and school staff. The Apple Harvest Stamp Set and Gingham Cottage Designer Series Paper were used to make the gift box below.

Easy-to-make Envelopes for Slimline Cards

I've demonstrated making Slimline Cards many times in the past. My most recent Slimline Cards feature the Hippest Hippos Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set and coordinating Hippest Hippos as shown in the photo below. (If you missed this, you can see the video demonstration and blog post with this link: https://bit.ly/3aNWpn0.

I'm often asked what kind of envelopes do I mail my Slimline Cards in. These cards fit in a standard business or letter size envelope or in a Slimline Envelope from Stampin' Up! or you can make your own with an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of card stock or Designer Series Paper that coordinates with your Slimline Card. Below is a video demonstration followed by a template and cutting and scoring dimensions.

Cutting & Scoring Dimensions:

  • Start with 8 1/2" x 11" card stock or DSP.
  • With card stock in horizontal position, score at 2 1/2" on one side and 2" on the opposite side.
  • Turn card stock to vertical position, score at 3/4" on one end and 1 1/4" on opposite end.
  • Cut away corners as shown. (TIP:  Cut corners at angles so envelope folds more easily.)
  • Fold on score lines.
  • Adhere long sides.
  • Adhere small end flap.

Awash in Beauty Tent Cards

It wedding rehearsal day! Yay! Andrea's immediate family is here in Columbus. Jon's family came to town yesterday. The two families are looking forward to getting together with the bridal party and a few extra guests for the rehearsal and a casual dinner. The weather is looking iffy at best for Sunday's wedding, so it is likely that the ceremony will now be indoors. As my neighbor told me, though, no matter the weather, Sunday will be a beautiful day filled with joy. I look forward to sharing pictures with you as soon as I can.

In today's post, you'll enjoy a video demonstration of "tent cards" featuring the Awash in Beauty Suite used 3 different ways. The Awash in Beauty Suite is my favorite floral suite in the 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. The Designer Series Paper is GORGEOUS! I love the rich colors and pretty prints and patterns. The new Iridescent Pearls are just as lovely, so much so that I'm on my second pack of them. And the True Beauty Bundle is lovely and so versatile as you'll see in this video.
