New at SU! ~ Papaya, Peaches & Pockets

New Stampin’ Year, NEW IN COLORS! Welcome to our May 2021 New at SU! Blog Hop where we are sharing the 2021-2023 In Colors with you in a fresh new way: by sharing Fun Fold Cards to try in your own craft studio! You’ll want to PIN all these terrific card ideas, so let’s get hopping around the world with our design team so you can give it a try sooner than later!

I chose to focus on the Pale Papaya color because it happens to match my favorite Designer Series Paper, “You’re a Peach” and I started with the In Color Vellum – which is shimmery on one side, and oh, so pretty!

On to my project, a Vellum Slide-Out-Pocket gift card holder:

My card was inspired by fellow demonstrator Rachel Tessman

What a PEACHY way to give a gift card!

Here are the pieces you need to make this card:

  1. Pale Papaya Vellum: 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 2-1/4 from one end and 3-1/4″ from the opposite end.
  2. Designer Series Paper: 7-3/8″ x 3-1/2″. If your paper has a direction, you’ll want to score at 2-5/8″ from the top (so your pattern will go the correct way on the pocket) and 3/8″ from the bottom. When you assemble the pocket, the 3/8″ edge will actually adhere toward the top of the card (see image 3)
  3. Basic White card stock: 3-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ plus scraps to stamp on
  4. Pear Pizzazz card stock: 3-3/8″ x 2-3/8″
  5. Pale Papaya ribbon: 18″

I embossed the Pear Pizzazz card stock with the lovely Stitched Greenery die, then stamped and die cut my peach images (TIP: Ink up your peach stamp with Pale Papaya ink, then use a sponge dauber to lightly add a bit of Polished Pink ink to the edges)

Then follow these steps to assemble your card:

There is only Tear & Tape adhesive on the edges of the Designer Series Paper pocket and the 3/8″ top edge of the pocket, and then on the same spot on TOP of the vellum to adhere the card stock panel to the front of the card. No other adhesive is necessary!

I stamped “Happy BIrthday” on the back side of the front panel before assembling the card so it shows through when you open it.

Products used are listed below, and I appreciate your comments! Then jump over the pond to our Columbian in Germany~ Ximena’s post to find another fancy fold card featuring the In Colors:

Pot of Tulips to Help You Heal

How I love a punch that coordinates with a stamp set! And tulips! And teaching you a fun fold card! It all comes together with my pot of tulips to brighten the day of someone who is recovering from a health challenge:

tulippotloni

The flowers pull out so you can write a message below, and still fits inside an envelope:tuliploni

Tip: As you are adding the tulips to the top of your white card stock, lay it on top of an envelope so you adhere the flowers within the dimensions of the sides of the envelope.

When placing an order in my Stampin’ Store, please don’t select “no contact”: I want to send you a hand-stamped thank you card and can only do that if I can see who ordered!

Crazy for Daisies: Get 3 Free Cards!

Did you know:

  1. Daisies are found on every continent except Antarctica?
  2. Daisy leaves are edible (they are high in vitamin C and can be added to a salad)?
  3. Daisies represent purity and innocence
  4. They are actually 2 flowers in one: The (usually) white petals count as one flower and the cluster of (usually) tiny yellow disc petals that form the ‘eye’ is technically another.

The beauty of stamping a daisy is that you can make them ANY color and with the addition of the Daisy Lane bundle to the Stampin’ Up! catalog, we now have 2 sizes of Daisy punches to play with…and they look fabulous in layers, as I demonstrated today on my Facebook Lunchtime Crafting LIVE:

Watermarked4(2019-06-17-1504)

This card opens like an overlapping gate and the 3-D flower curls back onto the card, making it feel ALIVE.

SPECIAL OFFER: 3 Free Cards!

I know you’ll love playing with the bundle (stamps + punch = save 10%) so I’m offering a BONUS to my customers: Order the Daisy Lane bundle from my Stampin’ Store (through July 22, 2019) , I’ll send you the supplies* and instructions to make 3 cards!

*Card stock and embellishments included. Ink pads and adhesive NOT included. You may use any colors, but the coordinating ink pads are Daffodil Delight, Highland Heather, Granny Apple Green and Night of Navy if you would like to add them to your order.

Here’s a sneak peek:

 

So go CRAZY for daisies and get ready to make some beautiful cards!

Product List

Beautiful Peacock & Stamparatus

Often Sale-a-Bration speeds by before I have a chance to play with all the terrific products I earn free, so I’m just sliding into the end-zone with this one!

Watermarked1(2018-02-27-2121)

This is called a “Double Z-fold” card and is super simple to create. The sentiment comes from the Picture Perfect Birthday stamp set, but all the other stamps are from the Beautiful Peacock Sale-a-Bration set (which is one of the items you could choose free with a $50 order by March 31, 2018).

Watermarked3(2018-02-27-2121)

  • The Emerald Envy card base is 11″ x 4-1/4″ scored at 2-3/4″ and 5-1/2″.
  • The Flirty Flamingo layer is 9″ x 3-1/4″ scored at 3″ and 6″.
  • I embossed the Layered Leaves on the 2-3/4″ end.
  • The Crinkled Seam Binding ribbon is my FAVORITE and I hope it carries over to the next catalog! It’s luscious to work with.
  • Both Emerald Envy and Flirty Flamingo are part of the In-Colors will be retiring in May: Make sure you have stocked up on card stock, ink refills and accessories A.S.A.P.  because they will only be **while supplies last** once the retiring list comes out in April!

I wanted to show you how to use the Stamparatus (available in my store June 2018!). It’s such a cool tool and this is just the basic way to use it (but there are MANY MORE):

If you would like a reminder when the Stamparatus is available to order, Email me!

One hint on assembling this card: On the Flirty Flamingo layer, only put adhesive above and JUST BELOW the ribbon on the back because you are adhering only the top half of that piece to the top of the Emerald card. Once that is secured where you want it, smash the Flamingo Z fold flat, turn it over and apply adhesive on the back side of the end with the peacock and close your Emerald card over on top to put it in exactly the right spot. Easy-peasy!

There is only one week of Sale-a-Bration left: Don’t miss it!
