FITTING FLORETS PANEL FOLD CARD + VIDEO!

You have probably seen the Fitting Florets Suite around now. It is all so gorgeous. I had to play with it. And I pulled out an old fold that I haven’t done in a while – A Panel Fold Card.

Here it is for you.

And it folds flat for you to post.

You can catch how to create one on the video below. (If you are receiving this blog update by email and the video is not showing, head to the blog post and view it there).

The Fitting Florets Suite will be available to order in November. The Framed Florets Bundle (Stamps and Dies) will be carried over in to the January-June Mini Catalogue but the gorgeous Fitting Florets paper and the Gold Swirl Gems won’t be so you will want to grab that early. I will tell you more about this soon.

But … You could get this earlier. As Demonstrators we can order it now. And if you have considered joining Stampin’ Up! what better way than joining now (also with the extra bonus you get this month) AND you can order it now. Because we can’t wait for these things right. 🙂

Here are the measurements.

WATERCOLOURING WITH PAINTED POPPIES + VIDEO!

Did you know it’s World Watercolouring Month?? A month of celebrating and sharing all things watercolouring.

I’m no expert at watercolouring. But I have picked up some tips along the way. And practice makes perfect right. 🙂

There are lots of different ways to watercolour and different mediums to use. I shared a video recently on using Watercolor Pencils. In today’s video I’m using the Ink Pads and Water Painters to create a watercolour wash and more detailed watercolouring.

I pulled out the Painted Poppies Stamp Set. I haven’t used this in a while.

Check out the video below.

This card was inspired by one in the current Annual Catalogue on Page 29.

I hope you pull out your inkpads and Painters and get watercolouring.

Have a great day,

Jenny

A CARD WITH A POCKET + A VIDEO!

Today’s video is a fun card I think. It’s a Pocket Front card.

It’s a standard size card and with a little folding and scoring creates a pocket in the front. Just the size for a tea bag, Gift Card or even a small chocolate.

I have a video to show you how to make it but also have the measurements below for you so you can recreate your own.

Here is the card for you. We have some different angles so you get an idea of it.

I used the Tea Boutique Collection for this card. Quite an appropriate one to include a Tea Bag in the pocket.

Below is the view from the front with the card standing up. It can stand well just on the point.

Lying flat.

Inside. I added a piece of white card so there is room to write.

Check the video out below.

The original idea came from Splitcoaststampers website -> HERE.

CREATE YOUR OWN POCKET FRONT CARD

Follow along with the video to see the scoring and folding of the card.

Base card 14.8cm x 21cm Score on the long side at 10.5cm

5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Score on the long side at 4 1/4″

On the long side place the left hand edge at the 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ point on the Paper Trimmer. Mark in pencil at the little channel on the Trimmer. Alternatively use a ruler to measure in 7.4cm or 2 3/4″ from the left hand edge and mark the point.

Turn card clockwise 1/4 turn. Mark halfway on this side which will be 7.4cm or 2 3/4″.

Score an angled line from the centre mark on the short side to the mark on the long side. Repeat the angled line from the centre to the mark on the other long side.

Fold on the score lines and fold in at the angles. Adhere to 2 angled folds down with tape.

Cut Designer Series Paper to 10cm x 10cm 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.

Cut the piece at an angle from one corner to the other. Keep one triangle as a large piece. Cut the other triangle in 2 to have 2 half triangles.

Adhere the large piece to the front of the card.

White card for inside measures 14.4cm x 10.1cm 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″.

Adhere the 2 smaller triangles on each of the bottom corners. Adhere the white card inside the base card.

Decorate as you wish to.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know how you go.

Have a great day,
