Panda Waterfall Card

Hello Stampers!  We are freezing here in Southern California – it’s been in the 50’s and 60’s and as low as 30’s and 40’s  in the morning…brrr. Hope you are warm and healthy. We are just not accustomed to this cold weather!

I have a very cute card for you today. It’s the Waterfall Card some of you are familiar with and our Sale-A-Bration Pandas. 

See the little white tab at the bottom?  Just give that a little tug and the next Panda will appear.

Sorry about the smudge…Tip: If you use Archival Basic Black be sure to let it dry thoroughly.

Here’s the next one.

And the next…

We made this card in my classes and at first the ladies thought they would never be able to do it. In the end…EVERYONE was successful! 

You want directions…right! Here you go.

Card Stock:  Base – 4″ x 5 1/4″; Strip – 1″ x 4″; (cut 4) 2″ x 2″

DSP:  3 3/4″ x 5″

Whisper White:  2″ x 9″ (score at 2″, 2 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 4 1/4″); (cut 4) 1 3/4″ x 1 3/4″; (optional – 3 3/4″ x 5″ for back of card)

  1.  Adhere the DSP to base and optional Whisper White to back, using 1 1/4″ Circle Punch – punch a half circle at the bottom in the center
  2. Stamp the Whisper White squares and adhere to the cardstock squares
  3. Stamp the sentiment onto the 2″ x 9″ Whisper White strip at least 1/2″ from 1st score mark and leave at least 3/4″ from bottom of this strip
  4. Fold on score lines all in one direction (curving toward the sentiment)
  5. Adhere the 1″ x 4″ strip ONLY on sides to the base about 1″ from the bottom of base
  6. Adhere the squares (adhesive ONLY on the top of square) starting at the midway fold ON THE BACK SIDE of the sentiment along the score lines and work your way up putting a square along each fold
  7. Slide the Whisper White (WW) strip with squares attached through the cardstock strip, center it and line up with bottom, put adhesive on strip but be sure to stay within the boundaries of the WW strip, fold the top half of WW strip (with the squares) over the adhesive laying flat and press.
  8. You’re finished!

It may sound daunting but it really isn’t. Give it a try…if you have any problems…contact me.

Friend Flip Fold Card

Hi Stampers.

Since today is the Fourth of July I’d like to wish you all a Happy Fourth! Shock…I do not have a red, white and blue card for you. 🙂 Instead, I have a little different twist on a greeting card. Got the inspiration from Dawn Griffith. She has so many great ideas so “why invent the wheel”!

Instead of the normal card this one has a single piece of 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ and then you build from there.

I used the new In Color – Fresh Fig and the Fresh Florals DSP. Those new In Colors are great.

The Blushing Bride is adhered to the Fresh Fig and then there is a small fold in the DSP which adheres over the Blushing Bride. Whisper White is then centered with the back of the DSP onto the Blushing Bride. It’s quite different and I do like unique folds and cards.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Set – Bunch of Blossoms

Ink – Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Fresh Fig, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Silver Glimmer, Fresh Florals DSP

Accessories – Laying Circles Framelits, White Satin Ribbon (R), 1 1/4″ Circle Punch, 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, 2″ Circle Punch

 

This is such a fun card to make and I can see it made with all the new In Colors. It would make a great gift set of Thank You cards in a cute little box!  Hmm…just might do that!

Here are the measurements I used:

Fresh Fig – 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″;  Blushing Bride – 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″;  Whisper White – 3 1/4″ x 5 1/2″;  DSP – 3 1/4″ x 6″, score on the 3 1/4″ side at

5 9/16″.

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White and then punched it out with the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. Punch out a 1 3/4″ circle from Fresh Fig, and a 2″ circle from Silver Glimmer. Glue them together. (Might want to use your Fast Fuse especially on the Glimmer paper.)     Using the 2 1/8″ Circle Framelit cut out a circle in the DSP, then use that die and the 2 1/2″ Scallop die together to make the frame. Glue it together and add the ribbon and you’ve got an awesome card.

Give this card a try and send me a photo…I’ll highlight you as my guest stamper!
