Oval Lock Gate Fold

Hello Stampers!  Hope this post finds you all in good health and warm. Here in San Diego we are having a cold spell (for us) and lots of rain (hooray). The weather is crazy all over. Stay warm and dry and healthy!

Today I have a really neat version of the Gate Fold. I got the idea from Dawn Griffith. We made this card in one of my classes and it was a hit because it is so different.

Here are some photos…

Here is the card semi closed.

 

Starting to open the card up.

 

Open all the way to view the inside sentiment.

 

I love the way this card turned out and it’s so unique.

Here are the measurements:

Base – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 score at 2 1/8 on one side and fold the other side to meet; also one piece 3 x 4 to cut out the oval frame

Whisper White – 4 1/8 x 5 3/8; (2) 2 x 5 3/8; 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 for oval

DSP – (2) 1 3/4 x 5

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

I hope you’ll try this fold and there are so many beautiful new colors and DSP sheets I know the possibilities are endless.

Enjoy and have fun making this card. Until my next post…Happy Stamping!     Donna

Twist Gate Fold – Get Well

Hello Stampers,

With the summer vacation and extreme heat we are experiencing it’s been difficult to sit down and prep my posts. But, today here’s a card that is very unique. Warning…it looks smaller than the normal size card but the way it’s made makes it just fit into an envelope. 

 

You can see that the diagonal is just long enough to fit into an envelope. This card is great for using up all that leftover DSP you have sitting around. Just find two complimentary designs and you are all set.

 

Here it is opening up to find a lovely greeting inside. 

I got the idea for this fold from Julie Davison.

It looks complicated but it isn’t really. I used this fold for cards in one of my classes and it was a hit.

 

Open all the way!

Daisy Field Thank You

Hello stampers!  Today I have a delightful card for you. I made it as a Thank You card but it would be a great Birthday card as well. I love daisies and this combo of the Daisy Delight Stamp Set and Daisy Punch make my day.

I’m pretty sure I was influenced by a card I saw somewhere on line but can’t remember where or who influenced me. This happens to all of us I’m sure…we view so many cards and subconsciously one or more stick in our memory banks. I apologize to the person who originally made this design or something similar.

 

The inside has a simple sentiment and leaves room for a lovely personal note.

 

 

 

I try to switch it up as to the direction in which a card opens…I think I’m partial to the vertical. 

 

Stampin’ Up! Products used to make this card:

Stamp Set – Daisy Delight

Ink – Pool Party, Peekaboo Peach, Wild Wasabi, Cajun Craze

Paper – Peekaboo Peach, Whisper White, Pool Party, Cajon Craze 

Accessories – 1/2″ Circle Punch, Gold Faceted Gems, Daisy Punch, Corner Rounder Punch

 

This is a fun card to make and it is quite versatile. Try it out and have some fun stamping time!

 

I’ll once again highlight my granddaughter’s card making in my next blog. She spent a week with us and LOVES to make cards.

Until next time…Happy Stamping!      Donna 🙂

 

Lemon Lime Twist Corner Fold Card

Hello Stampers!

Today I’m featuring three things. First this card is for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge #6 using the row with Shadow – Layers – Square. Then I’ve brought back a fold I used in the past (but I love it) – the Corner Fold.  Lastly I’m using one of our NEW In Color cardstock colors – Lemon Lime Twist.

 

I’m really getting to like this Lemon Lime Twist more each time I use it. In person the Daffodil Delight butterfly looks so much better. Also, I apologize again for the bit of blur in the photo. I’m still working on the correct settings. This camera just isn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

Measurements for the Corner Fold:  Card base – 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/2″; Black Cardstock – 2 3/4″ square, 1 1/4″ x 4″ strip, 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece for inside; Whisper White – 2 1/2″ square, 1 ” x 3 3/4″ strip, 3 3/4″ x 5″ for inside.

To make the Corner Fold:  Place the card at the 3″ mark on your Stampin’ Trimmer, place the blade at 2 1/2″ and cut from 2 1/2″ to 4 7/8″, turn your card one quarter turn clockwise and place the blade at 3″ and cut from 3″ to 5/8″.  Fold the corner down carefully making sure the corner is positioned evenly.

 

Stampin’ Up! Products Used:

Stamp Sets – Colorful Seasons, Daisy Delight

Ink – Daffodil Delight, Memento Tuxedo Black

Paper – Lemon Lime Twist, Black, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight

Accessories – Bold Butterfly Framelits, Butterflies Thinlits, Candy Dots (R)

 

 

 

I liked this card so much I decided to use it in my July classes. So, if you are attending class on either July 19th or 22nd you will be making this card!

I promise my next post will be using the Early Release Carols of Christmas bundle. The Thinlits in that bundle are awesome!  Until then…

Happy Stamping!
