Free Stampin’ UP! Catalog Information:
Before I show you my card for today, I just wanted to check and make sure you have a current catalog. I have eight catalogs that are ready to send out and I will send them Priority. There are three ways that you can receive a catalog from me in the next three days (unless you live in Alaska!). The first way is to place an online order for $25.00 or more. After you place your order be sure to email me and request your free catalog and all updates through January 1, 2017. I am only able to mail to the United States, thank you.
The second way is to pay $5.00 for shipping and when you receive your catalog there will be coupon good for $10 off your first order with me!
The third way is to place orders that total $50 or more in a calendar year and you will receive all new catalogs FREE as soon as their available.
Now on to the card for today.
Welcome back, are you yearning for just one cool day? I surely am. I love cold weather, the colder the better and this 90 something is just way to hot for my liking. A good time to hunker down in the craft room and make cards, don’t you agree? Here is my offering for today. I love this DSP. It was so hard to choose which patterns I wanted to use. There are four perfectly coordinated patterns in this Floral Boutique DSP. Love that it is just two colors: Whisper White and Night of Navy. I love the ‘summery’ feeling of Navy and White. Next I want to see how this paper pops yellow! Love Navy and Yellow as well.
This is a Joy Fold Card. I love the creative challenge inherent in the Joy Fold. So many surfaces to embellish, so much fun to plan and finish. There is a super tutorial on Joy Fold Cards on Splitcoaststampers. Click on the name and you will be taken directly to the tutorial.
It looks challenging but it is fairly easy if you follow the tutorial. The card is actually two cards, one inside the other. Hope that makes it easier for you to follow. The base of the card is Night of Navy Card Stock with Floral Boutique DSP pattern adhered to the inside base using SNAIL. The left flap of the front is then finished using the DSP in a coordinating pattern. The inside card and the very front are next decorated.
The inside of the second card is finished by first stamping the sentiment using Night of Navy on Whisper White Card Stock. The Sentiment if from the Tin of Cards Stamp Set. The little border at the bottom is from the Floral Phrases Stamp Set stamped in Night of Navy. The inside flap is then covered with the third coordinating pattern from Floral Boutique DSP.
The front of the card is then finished by adhering a piece of the Floral Boutique DSP using Snail. Then the flower from Floral Phrases Stamp Set is stamped in Night of Navy on a piece of Whisper White. The flower is then die cut using one of the Layering Oval Thinlet dies. Then choosing the next size up I die cut another layer from Night of Navy Card Stock. The Whisper White is adhered to the Night of Navy Layer using SNAIL. The finished piece is adhered to the front of the card using Stampin’ Dimensionals to give the flower some definition. Three Rhinestone Basic Jewels were added to the front panel.
The card needed some kind of fastener or something to hold the front card stock in place. What to do?? I decided to try an experiment, so I looked through my thinnest and framelits and came up with a combination of two dies the put together made a pretty little kind of flower and would do perfectly for the fastener job. I used the five petal very small die from the May Flowers Framelits dies and die cut it from Night of Navy Card Stock. The top of the fastener is a die from the Flourish Thinlets set die cut in the Floral Boutique DSP. Adhering the two together I used a glue dot and placed a Rhinestone Basic Jewel in the middle for some Bling. The little fastener was then positioned and adhered to the card front using a Stampin’ Dimensional to give it enough room to tuck the edge of the card under to hold it. I just noticed that a couple of these pictures have kind of a yellow shadow on the side. I’m working with a new photo light box and still learning how to adjust the lights to cut down on the shadows. On Thursday I will post the Lightbox and how I made it.
