FAREWELL ‘CELEBRATE TODAY’!

Since there is just over one week left of this  current catalogue and our retiring list I thought I would say a last Farewell to some of the products.

Today it is the Celebrate Today stamp set.

I have made lots of fun cards with this set but here are some favourites.

This one has been very popular and has been repinned on Pinterest nearly 650 times.  Check the original post HERE. 

What about a Fold Flat card? Check the original post HERE. 

It’s a great one for Christmas too.  This one we made at a Stamp A Stack a few years ago.  See how versatile it is!

This stamp set is reduced on the retiring list too.  Grab the Photopolymer set for $38.25 AUS.  Here in store.  Don’t forget the matching framelits too you can grab for $29 AUS.

Have a happy day,

SKY IS THE LIMIT 3D CARD!

I shared the Fold Flat (3D) cards the other day.  I have made one of these cards using some great Sale-A-Bration products. (Only 5 sleeps to go until Sale-A-Bration begins!).  You will love this year’s offerings for Sale-A-Bration.  There are so many fantastic products.  It will be hard to choose believe me. 🙂

Here is the card but you can see how to make them in the earlier post HERE.

Don’t you love that swirly paper?? It makes the plane look like it is flying over the ocean!  This paper is the ‘Perfectly Artistic’ Designer Series paper and comes in 12 sheets of 12″x12″ and available in so many gorgeous colours in the pack.  This one is Tempting Turquoise.  The stamp set is ‘Sky is the Limit’  A great one for those male cards!

On the front panel I stamped the clouds on the white card and stamped the plane in Basic Gray.  I stamped the plane again on scrap white and cut it out and raised it up with Dimensionals.  The greetings which come in the set are stamped in Basic Gray on Crushed Curry card and cut with the ‘Lots of Labels’ Framelits.  They were raised up with Dimensionals too.  The little loops are from the Burlap Ribbon.  I cut off the edge of the Burlap and then pulled off a couple of threads and looped them around.  I adhered them onto the back of the label with glue dots.  These give a little wavy look rather than than using the Linen Thread this time.  I added a Turquoise Candy Dot to finish but I am still not convinced of that but it is there now. 🙂

There you have it.  Now I know you are going to want to grab this set.  This set and the paper are only available until February 15 and then some new products will be offered so be quick.

Thanks for stopping by,

Jenny

FOLD FLAT CARDS!

How was your Christmas??  Our’s was a little quiet on the day but then celebrating with different family members for the last 3 days.  It’s all done now for another year.  I have packed up my Christmas stamps and cards and ready to move on to some different creating.  I haven’t had a lot of chance to create with the new products from the upcoming Occasions and Sale-A-Bration so I am looking forward to getting them inky.

I have had these projects for a while now and with all the excitement of the Holiday Catalogue they got put aside so I thought it was time to share these before we move on.  These are called Fold-Flat (or 3D) Cards.  You might have seen them around blogland.

This one below uses ‘Celebrate Today’ we made this in a class a few months ago.  The original instructions were from HERE. You can follow along in that post.  They are available in English too. I have used the ‘Bohemian’ DSP.

This is a side view.  This folds flat so you can post it.  I did find this quite large so later I made one smaller so it can fit in a standard size envelope.

This one uses the set ‘Something For Baby’.

A side-view for you.

On the back you can adhere some Whisper White card so you can add the message.

I will share my measurements for the smaller one.  Putting it together is the same as the large one so you can follow along in the above link.  It is very simple though.  Just a matter of folding on the scored lines and adhering.  There is a little trick to adhering the front piece so I will tell you that further down.

FOLD FLAT CARDS (Smaller version).

Base: Cut card 10.5cm x 27cm. (4 1/8″ x 10 5/8″).  Score at 15cm, 18cm, 23cm and 26cm.  (6″, 7 1/8″, 9″ and 10 1/4″).

Designer Series Paper strips.    TOP PIECE – 10.1 cm x 9.6cm (4″ x 3 3/4″)                     BOTTOM PIECE – 10.1 cm x 4.6cm (4″ x 1  7/8″)

Back: Cut Whisper White 10.1cm x 14.6cm (4″ x 5 3/4″)

 

Front Panel: Cut Card 7.5cm x 15cm (3″ x 6″).  Score at 1cm and 4cm.  (1/2″ x 1 9/16 – I hope that measurement is right?? It doesn’t seem right)  🙂

Card Mat: Whisper White – 7.1cm x 10.6cm (2 3/4″ x 4 3/16″).

ASSEMBLING (If you are having trouble following this, head to the link I added above for photos.  I didn’t think I would repeat the photo steps).

For the Base piece.  Add Adhesive to the smaller tab (on the back as it is lying down on the table) and fold up to adhere to the front.  (I added the DSP first so I could line up the fold just below the DSP).

Fold the front Panel on the score lines.  Add adhesive to the small scored section at the top.  Before sticking down the tab fold this under carefully and line up the second score line with the top edge of the base card and then press down on the small tab to adhere this to the base card lower down.  If you are not sure then check the tutorial link above to see the image. Add adhesive to the back of the front panel and then adhere to the folded section of the base card near the bottom.

I hope this all makes sense.  I loved making these and since I had the instructions out still to share these with you I decided to make one of these cards using some new Sale-A-Bration products.   I will post that card next post so come and visit again.
