Congratulations 3D House Easel Card. Crafty Collaborations Share it Sunday Blog Hop. October 2021

Good Afternoon Everyone,

I'm taking part in the Crafty Collaborations Share it Sunday blog hop. We do this once a month and it's an opportunity for us to show anything we want to - there's no set theme to follow for this one!

I started following Iced Images over on Youtube recently and she makes the most incredible projects - there's a lot of fancy folds, and when I say Fancy - they can be really fancy! I came across a tutorial for a 3D House Easel Card and I was blown away, I just knew I had to give it a go. I have never seen this before and do you know what, it wasnt that difficult to do. Thats what I love about her Tutorials.

Basic White Card Stock 

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

Window - 2pc 7/8" x 1/2"

Scrap for the sentiment 

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

Take the Gray Granite base piece and score on the long side at 2 1/2", 4", 5 1/2" & 8". All the folds are mountain, make sure you fold straight and burnish well. 

Create the door and window by adding the basic white to the Gray Granite and popping a matt black gem as a door handle.

Add the DSP to the panels as follows (here'sthe front and back)...



Add the door and window to what will be the front of the house.



Now score the Roof piece of Gray Granite and score on the short side at 2". Add the two piece of DSP, the fold and burnish well.



Add adhesive to the small gray granite panel on the base, next to where your front piece is and add the roof. Only stick this front piece of the roof down, otherwise it won't fold flat to go into your envelope.

Stamp the sentiment from All for Baby and trim it so you are left with just the Congratulations. Position this on the inner edge of the Garden strip with dimensionals, then the rest of the card can fold round from the back and tuck under there to stay in place.

 I hope you enjoyed my project today and will have a go yourself - I had so much fun creating it. Please take a look at the list below and continue through the hop to see what everyone else has been making today

Shaded Summer Monochrome Blue Happy Birthday Card. Share it on a Sunday

 Good Morning Everyone,

It's Share it on a Sunday and this week we are going MONOCHROME. I decided on Blue as my colour and using several shades and DSP from the In Good Taste Paper Pack I managed to create a lovely - quick and very striking card - this could easily be changed up to whichever colour way you would prefer, but I think it looks ace in Blue.



Measurements

Pacific Point Card Stock

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

1pc - 3 5/8" x 2 3/4"

Basic White Card Stock

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

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

In Good Taste DSP

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

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

Take your Pacific Point card Stock and Fold along the score line to create your card base.

Add the In Good Taste DSP to the card front.

Stamp the flower images to cover a small portion at the bottom of the  larger piece of basic white and then add this to the inside of the card.

On the smaller piece, add the sentiment to the top right hand corner and the flower cluster below, to fill the rest of the space. Once the ink is dry, take your blends and colour the flowers and leaves in.

Add the pacific point card stock to the card front in the centre, but at an angle. Then place the stamped piece over the top, but straight, so that you can see 'triangles' of the Pacific point card showing from underneath.

Colour in three rhinestones with a night of navy blend and then add to the card.

I hope you enjoyed today's card. Please pop over to see what Donna and Karen have also made for this theme.

Celebrate with Pretty Flowers Happy Birthday Card. Stampin' Birds Blog Hop. October 2021

 Good Morning Everyone,

Today I am hopping with the Stampin Birds Team which is always fun.

Each week we have a challenge within the team and this week it is DRY EMBOSSING, so I thought I would use that theme and create something for the hop as well. Win Win!!








Measurements

Old Olive Card Stock

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

Fresh Freesia Card Stock

2pc - 3" x 5 3/4"

1pc - 7/8" x 5 3/4"

Basic White Card Stock

2pc - 2 7/8" x 5 5/8"

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

scraps

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

Take the Old Olive card stock a fold along the score line to create a standard card base, then trim off 1" from the right hand side. Make sure you only cut this from the card front otherwise you will just end up with a shorter card!

Run one of the larger pieces of basic white card stock and the Pretty Flowers Embossing folder through the Cut & Emboss machine and add this to the coordinating piece of Fresh Freesia and add the the shortened card front.

On the Thin piece of basic white, stamp the sentiment into the centre and then ad a flower top and bottom. I stamped the outline in Fresh Freesia, then added the solid infill with Fresh Freesia again, but 2nd Generation (stamped off once) for a lighter shade. Add this to the Fresh Freesia card stock strip and adhere to the card base, onto the back panel - so it shows evenly and centrally when the card is closed. 

Add the remaining piece of basic white to the remaining fresh freesia and add this to the inside of the card.

Stamp 12 flowers as you did above onto scrap basic white and fussy cut - add 6 in the opposite corners in a neat cluster - I used both liquid glue and dimensionals to give some depth.

All done, it's a pretty simple card, but the style and those extra little details like the embossing really do add some lovely interest.

I hope you enjoyed today's card, please do continue through the hop and see what the other Birds have created. Donna is up next - go on, click the next button to pop on over.....

Garden Birdhouses Beauty of the Earth Birthday Card. Crafty Collaborations Sketch Challenge Blog Hop. October 2021

 Good Afternoon Everyone,

Today I'm Blog Hopping with the amazing Crafty Collaborators and we are all following a sketch layout. 

I love sketch layouts because they can help guide you but as only provides a basic design you can really go to town with how you interpret it. 

I've stayed pretty close the the original sketch as I loved the format and thought that it worked well.





So, here's the original sketch and you can see that I've pretty much kept all the elements the same, only negating the thin banner strip for the sentiment.




Measurements

Old Olive Card Stock

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

Beauty of the Earth DSP

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

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

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

Basic White Card Stock

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

1pc - 2 1/4" x 3"

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

Take the Old Olive Card Stock and fold along the score line to create your card base. Add the lager piece of Basic White to the inside.

Add the woodgrain patterned DSP to the card front. The add the thinner blue strip across the middle.

On the smaller piece of basic white stamp the birdhouse scene add this to the card front on top of the remaining piece of DSP and offset them at an angle. 

Stamp the Birthday Wishes sentiment onto the wood grain DSP and the other sentiment onto the strip of blue.

Super Quick and easy card and just a really nice card that you can literally give to anyone!

I hope you have enjoyed today's card. Please take a look at the list below and check out all the other ways that this sketch layout has been interpreted.
