Twisted Fun Fold Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I do like to make fun fold cards – it stretches my imagination and allows me to make use of all the lovely Stampin’ UP! goodies in my stash.  I have used the Very Versailles stamp set along with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper.

I think it is so much easier to show you than to explain in words so the Twisted Fun Fold Card I am sharing today has a video as well as a downloadable PDF recipe for you.

Pop Out Gatefold Fun Fold Card for Birthday and Valentine ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I have a card class every month where I share fun/fancy folds and techniques, mainly cards with the occasional 3D project. I work hard to create projects that I hope will be fun and interesting to the ladies who faithfully join me each month.

Today’s post is a bit of a ‘bumper bundle’ as it shows the fun fold from my January class where there was a birthday and a valentine option – both using product from the 2020 Mini Catalog from Stampin’ UP!  I have included a video and my ‘recipe’ for you.

Pressed Petals Easel Card with Sticky Notes

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card is all about my 200th video!  I chose an Easel card fun fold that has a calendar and a pad of sticky notes, so this will sit on your desk for a whole year!

I also used one of the 2020 Sale-a-bration items, the Small Bloom Punch and Here’s a Card Stamp set, that is in the 2020 Mini Catalog as well.  The Pressed Petal Specialty Designer Paper is so very pretty and I have added to the prettines with flowers, leaves, pearls and the very delicate Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon.  If you love the fold but don’t want to add the calendar and sticky notes I have included an idea for just making the card.   So enjoy………………………………

Botanical Bliss Birthday

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Today’s card showcases all three of the purples in the Stampin’ UP! family of colors, Gorgeous Grape, Highland Heather and Purple Posy – it also gave me the chance to show off the 3/8 Tricolor Ribbon which also has the same three colors.

I chose to use a simple Z fold for my base and the Highland Heather ink for all my stamping which was done with the Botanical Bliss Stamp set.

Come to Gather Pocket Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

I hope you all had a peaceful Christmas, we spent some time ‘Face-timing’ with family in the UK with the grandchildren excitedly sharing what Father Christmas (Santa Claus) bought them for Christmas –  technology and the internet is a wonderful thing, especially at this time of year.

Today I have a fun fold to share – I used the Come to Gather Suite of products but change out the greetings and you could have a perfect birthday or thank you card. I have added video to show you how all the pieces go together…… so enjoy!

Perfectly Plaid Magic Slider Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

A little bit of Christmas magic for today’s card, a fun fold slider card that reveals its little secret when you pull the tab on the top.  This has a regular card base for writing your message and will fit into a regular envelope, the slider is the embellishment on the front.

I used the Christmas Gleaming and Itty Bitty Christmas Stamp Sets, then used Gold Foil and Gold 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon to pick out the gold foil in the Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper.  As is often the case with fancy fold cards the supply list is quite long but oh so worth it! 🙂

Gather Together Box Card ~ Video Tutorial

welcome back to my corner of the world.

I love to do fancy folds so when one of my lovely customers asked if we could do a ‘box’ card at a future class it gave me a chance to reach  back into my archives and find one I had done some 6 – 7 years ago.

I have bought it up to date with the beautiful Come Together Suite of products, choosing the  Pretty Peacock and Pear Pizzazz colors from this suite.

Happy Halloween!  hard to believe we are at that time of year again – later today we will have the ‘littlies’ come knocking at the door to collect their candy (sweeties)  We just love to see them in their costumes.  It is due to be a cold evening so we shall be wrapped up ourselves waiting for them to come by.
