Bubble Over & Team Fun

Last week I gathered with my fellow team members to share, learn and create – I really enjoy this time together and always learn something new. This month our newest team member offered to share a fun pop up card with us.

So while she shared the technique I designed the card – don’t you LOVE team work! Want to see what we came up with?

I am loving the Bubble Over bundle from the Occasions Catalog and the coordinating Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration offerings, so that’s what I started with. And since the brick wall in the background kind of made this feel like teenage grunge I also reached for the Epic Celebrations stamp set to decorate the inside.

So what do you think? Great for a teen’s special day? I just love the bold bright colors that our Stampin’ Blends give us. I thought it was a perfect coloring option to go with the bold patterns on the Bubble & Fizz Designer Series Paper.

Stop back by tomorrow when I’ll be sharing our team swaps with you along with a fun box too that was shared.

Picture Perfect Birthday Tutorial

Today’s card is one that we used the new Stamparatus to create at my Team Retreat over the weekend – but no worries if you don’t have yours yet you can still make the card. (The Stamparatus just makes things faster since you only have to do the placement once.)

It’s got a fun fold and I think perfect for any age with its bright cheerful colors.

This card uses the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper so it gives you lots of wonderful patterns to choose from!

Hot Diggity Dog! On Stage – Tampa

This past Saturday I was able to get together with other Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators in Tampa for an On Stage presentation by Stampin’ Up! What can I say I love these events, after all what could be better than getting together with others who love stamping as much as you do?

Today’s card is another one that uses the Folded Frame Technique that I shared with you on Friday. Click HERE to see my Folded Frame Video Tutorial.  I designed this card for the On Stage event so I could do some swapping on the floor before it started and I got some great cards in return that I look forward to sharing with you over the next few weeks.

Folded Frames Tutorial & On Stage

As I’m typing this up I’m  getting ready for my Shoe box swap and the first ever Stampin’ Up! On Stage event. Whoo hoo! There isn’t anything I enjoy more than getting together with other stampers and stamping. And this event is sure to be a ton of fun!

Would you like to see what I’ll be sharing at my Shoe box Swap? This card highlights the Folded Frame technique and while it looks difficult it really isn’t – which is always the type of technique I love!

From Land to Sea Folded Frame OnStage Sherrie Shoebox Swap 2015

This card was created using our From Land to Sea stamp set (138720/139361) found on page 83 in the Annual Catalog. I love anything water and turtles so that is where I started when creating this card. (Remember those pet turtles that we had and the little plastic dish with the palm tree to keep them in? Oops I’m probably dating myself, oh well my love affair with turtles started with my first pet turtle.)

Double Fold Gate Card

I love to try new things and so recently fell in love with making these cards using the Double Fold Gate technique and the Layered Labels stamp set. It’s a lot of fun to see all the different combinations that you can come up with.

This card in particular that I’m showing you today uses one of my favorite NEW stamps sets from the 2012-2013 Catalog, Layered Labels. First I love it because of the sentiments and secondly because of the fact it has a matching set of Framelits Dies that coordinate with it making it quick and easy to use. After all who doesn’t love their Big Shot? And with all the new goodies in the 2012-2013 Catalog the Big Shot options are endless!

Double Fold Card Tutorial front

I’ve used the Floral District Designer Series Paper for this Double Fold Gate card. The Floral Districts DSP seems to be a DSP that I reach for most often right now– so much so I need to order my 3rd package of it already! I really like the bold, fun colors and patterns it contains.

I think these Double Fold Gate Cards are so much fun to make that I wanted to share with you the Double Fold Gate Card tutorial that I made for it. Grab your favorite pack of Designer Series Paper and see what combinations you can come up with – warning these can become addictive!

Double Fold Gate Card Tutorial

Supplies:

Simply Scored Scoring Tool

Stampin Trimmer

Bone Folder

Lay a 12″ x 5 ½” piece of Designer Series Paper on the Simply Scored Board with longest edge at the top. (I used our new Floral District Designer Series Paper.)

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 1

Score at 2″, 4″, 8″ and 10″ marks

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 2

Turn Designer Series Paper and make a small mark each short end at the 2 ¾” mark

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 3Use the bone folder and fold in the two ends on the 4″ and 8″ score lines. (This allows you to see your score lines easier for when you line up your DSP to cut.)

Decide which side is the top of your card and then using the Stampin’ Trimmer to cut a diagonal line on each side. Line up the 2 ¾” mark on the grove where your blade travels. You can hold this in place with your index finger if you would like.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 4

Then “swing” the top edge of your 4″ score line on the DSP until it is lined up on the grove too.

Cut.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 5

Repeat on the other side Lining up the 8″ score line and your

2 ¾” mark.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 6

Double Fold Card Tutorial 7

You should have three pieces that look like this.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 8

Flip over the piece and adhere to the bottom of card as shown. Repeat on the other side.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 9

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 10

Using the bone folder you can fold the card on the 4″ and 8″ score lines (if you didn’t fold and score before cutting off the corners.)

Double Fold card Tutorial step 11

Using Bone Folder, fold on the 2″ score line in the opposite direction to create Z fold.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 12

Repeat on the other side Using Bone Folder, fold on the 10″ score line folding in the opposite direction to create Z fold.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 13

Your card should like this.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 14

Adhere pieces of card stock to the inside and decorate front as desired. I used a piece of 3 ½” x 5″ Rich Razzleberry card stock with a layer of 3 ¼” x 4 ¾” Whisper White card stock. I used the Betsy’s Blossoms stamp set and stamped the flower image in Rich Razzleberry.

Double Fold Card Tutorial step 15

For the outside image I used our NEW Layered Labels stamp set and the coordinating Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies – Adhering the image only on the one side so that the card opens easily.

And here is the finished card.
