Birthday Bonanza Shaker Card ~ Video Tutorial

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Shaker Cards are such a lot of fun, especially for children but I am sure an adult would enjoy one as well!  It was our youngest granddaughters birthday last week so I thought a fun card would be just perfect, particularly as she will not be having a party with friends and extended family this year.

We later found out that she wanted an ‘elephant’ cake for her birthday – which her talented parents made for her – so the Birthday Bonanza DSP, with the cute animals, I used for her card turned out to be in the right theme!

Peaceful Poppy Customer Thank You

Welcome back to my corner of the world

The other day I shared a little treat holder thank you for my customers who shopped for their SU goodies with me during March and April.  It was not practical for me to mail them to my on-line customera so today’s card is one I designed and sent to them.

It is an easy ‘Z’ fold and I used the lovely Poppy Moments Dies with the Peaceful Poppies Designer Series Paper with Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive and Purple Posy for my color palette.

Peaceful Poppies Spinner Card

Welcome back to my corner of the world

Interactive cards are a lot of fun to make and receive.  I was reminded of this style of card when I got a Christmas card  from my sister last year.  Basically the front of the card has a large hole in it where another panel is attached using Bakers Twine.  You turn  the panel so the twine is twisted then put the card in the envelope  when the recipient gets the card and opens it the front panel twirls around!

I used the Peaceful Poppies DSP and Poppy Moments Dies to decorate my card – but it would work for any of our decorative papers and dies – can you imagine a child receiving this style of card?

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! 🙂
