Sweet Symmetry Tailored Tag Thank You card. Share it on a Sunday Tic Tac Toe Challenge

 Good Morning Everyone,

Today We are following a Tic Tac Toe board for our Share it on a Sunday theme, and here's the card I made - choosing Punch, Patterned Paper &  Ribbon.




What's a Tic Tac Toe board I Hear you ask? Well here is the board we had to follow -




It's pretty simple really, you choose a line and create a project making sure you incorporate the three chosen elements. It's a great way to push yourself into creating out of your comfort zone, and maybe mixing some elements you wouldn't have ordinarily thought to put together.

Measurements

Night of Navy Card Stock

1pc - 5 7/8" x 8 1/4", scored at 4 1/8"

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

Scraps

Sweet Symmetry DSP

Scraps of all different designs and patterns

---------------

Take the larger piece of Night of Navy card stock and fold along the score line to create the card base. Add the basic white panel to the inside.

Cut out one shape using the tailored tag punch in basic white, and a selection of punch outs from the sweet symmetry DSP. Stamp the sentiment and cut out using the punch as well - but put this to one side for now.

First place the plain white cut out onto your card, where you would like your sentiment to finally sit on the remaining piece of Night of Navy card stock. Now, cover the rest of the card with the DSP cut outs making sure you mix up the patterns and designs. Trim off any over hanging pieces and make sure the card stock is has straight edges. So it looks like this...



Take three lengths of the bumblebee gingham and wrap them around the panel. I lined the centre piece up with the points on the white punch out, then added one either side. 



Adhere this panel to the card front. Then bring in the sentiment you did earlier and add this to the card front directly over the other white punch out.

Ahoy There Matey! Flip Front Birthday Card. Stampin' Birds Showcase Blog Hop July 2021

 Good Morning Everyone,

It's the last Saturday of the month, so that means we have our Stampin Birds Showcase Blog Hop. As usual we don't have a particular theme - we are just showing off some of our wonderful projects!

I've used the Pirates & Mermaid stamp set and a fab Flip Front Fold to create this very different Birthday card I'll be sending out too my friends little boy on his birthday! 

Funnily, I'd asked Karen & Donna in our little chat group what the name of this fold along with a very poor description followed by an equally poor quick mock up. I knew what I wanted to do - just couldn't find it, then on the day I sat down to work it - so thank you Donna, I took your measurements hehe... 








Measurements

Smoky Slate Card Stock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 5 3/4"

1pc - 8 1/4" x 3", scored at 4 1/8"

Brights 6x6" DSP Pack

Pacific Point

2pc - 3 7/8" x 1 1/4"

1pc - 3 7/8" x 2 3/4"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 3 7/8" x 2 3/4"


Take the larger piece of Smoky slate and the two this strips of DSP. Add the DSP to either short end making sure you are evenly spaced, like so...



Now take the other piece of Smoky Slate and fold along the score line, burnish well so you have a really nice crisp fold. Add the remaining piece onto the front, and the basic white piece to the inside.

 Add glue to the back of this piece and add it to the other piece of making sure that the fold is towards the top and it's all lined up evenly and straight in between the two piece of DSP.



On some scraps of basic white, stamp a pirate and the sentiments in versamark, and 6 treasure chests in early espresso ink.  

Colour these in with a selection of blends and then fussy cut. Add three chests to thin strips of DSP, and on the Flip panel, add the sentiments and the Pirate.

Expressions in Ink Happy Birthday Card. Scrapbusting Challenge

Good Morning Everyone,

Woo Hoo - It's Friday Folks. Hope this week has been good to you and you all have some wonderful plans for the weekend?

Today I'm doing a little scrap busting and I wanted to share this card with you. It takes such a small amount of product - but because the DSP is so amazing, it really does pack a punch!





Measurements

Evening Evergreen Cardstock

1pc - 4 1/8" x 11 3/4", scored at 5 7/8"

Basic White Cardstock

1pc - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8"

1pc - 1" x 3 1/4"

Pale Papaya Cardstock

4pc - 1 3/4" x 1 3/4"

1pc - 1 1/4" x 3 1/2"

Polished Pink Cardstock

4pc - 1 5/8" x 1 5/8"

1pc - 1 1/8" x 3 3/8"


Take the Evening Evergreen card stock and fold along the score line to create the card base. Add the large basic white panel to the inside.

Round two opposite corners on all the pieces of DSP, the top right and the bottom left. This is key if the DSP is is directional. Also pay attention if your DSP creates a picture like mine.

Round the same corners on the square card stock pieces and layer these all together DSP, Polished Pink and then Pale Papaya.

On the this strip of basic white stamp the sentiment into the centre, round the corners along with the card stock, layer and add this along with the squares to the card front.

Colour in a couple of the larger pearls with the ivory blends. This just softens the colours slightly. Add these to the sentiment banner.

Hand Penned Thank You for all the Little Things Double Z Fold Card.

  Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all well. Today I have a fab card to share with you. Now you will look at the list of supplies below and the sizing and kind of think, what that a lot - but I managed to make this with a lot from my scrap pile, and once you have everything cut everything come together really quickly.

I have taken the measurements from my friend Karen of Crafty Karen Designs who is the absolute Queen of Fancy Folds. She did an Epic series on all sorts of fold - what she doesn't know isn't worth knowing haha!!

Anyway, back to my card.....





Measurements

Misty Moonlight Card Stock

1pc - 11" x 4 3/4" - scored at 2 3/4" & 5 1/2"

1pc - 10" x 2 3/4" - scored at 4 3/4" & 7 1/2"

Basic White Card Stock

1pc - 5 1/2" x 4"

1pc - 3" x 1 1/2"

Hand Penned DSP

1pc - 5 1/4" x 4"

2pc - 2 1/2" x 4"

1pc - 4 1/2" x 2 1/2"

1pc - 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"

1pc - 2 1/2" x 2 1/4"


Fold and burnish both pieces of Misty Moonlight card stock, making sure you create a Z shape ( fold in half and then back on itself).

Now add all the DSP  and white card to the bases. Put the basic white onto the back of the card, and then you will find that all the rest just fit in one place so it's pretty easy to find their homes. Stamp the sentiment onto the smallest piece of Basic White., adding this piece to the larger panel on the smaller piece of card stock

Adhere the smaller z fold to the larger one, the larger piece has the bigger back panel to the right, the smaller piece leads with the larger panel. Add liquid glue to the back of the smallest panel on the small z fold piece and adhere to the centre of the larger back panel.

Now, fold all the pieces down, don't worry some to the edges will overlap - then add adhesive to the front piece of the smaller z, making sure you only add adhesive to the section that will be stuck to the other piece, otherwise you will just make a mess and stick it all closed!!
