SINGLE STEP CARD WITH BUTTERFLY BRILLIANCE + VIDEO!

Today’s Friday Flicks is a Fun Fold creating a Single Step card. I couldn’t help but use the new Butterfly Brilliance bundle – Oh! and the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper.

I have made this fold before quite some time ago. It is still re-pinned so many times on Pinterest and many people head back to my blog to see it. I thought it would be good to freshen it up. You can see the original card -> HERE.

Check out the card. It is a bit hard to capture it in photos. It folds up easily to mail too.

I have the measurements for the card and all the different pieces further below. They are available in Metric and Imperial.

Here is the video which is now on Youtube. (Have you subscribed to my channel yet?)

HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK POP OUT SWING CARD + VIDEO!

Friday Flicks. I have a fun card for you in today’s video. This video is a replay from my Facebook Live on Wednesday. I created a Pop Out Swing Card with the Hey Birthday Chick Bundle. I have made a few of these over the years and I love making them. It has been a while so thought I would pull it out again and freshen it up.

Here is the card for you first.

Hey Chick Pop Out Swing Card _ Inside

Check it out on the video. (If you are receiving this via email then the video may not show. Head to the blog post by clicking on the title above or head to Youtube).

It is now also uploaded to Youtube -> HERE. (Have you subscribed to my Youtube channel yet. I’m shooting for 200 subscribers by the end of the month so head on over there) 🙂

MAKE YOUR OWN POP OUT SWING CARD

The video will show you the details. I will give you general details and measurements below.

Base card is a standard size card. Designer Series paper is 4mm (1/8″) smaller. I used the Balmy Blue pattern in the Subtles pack New demonstrators receive free in Sale-A-Bration. (They will receive a pack from each Colour Collection. 200 6″x6″ in total valued at $100)

I used the Layering Squares Dies for the window cut-out. You can use a circle or rectangle also if you wish.

The inside White card measures. 15.2cm x 12.8cm (6″ x 5″). Score at 5cm and 10cm. (2″ and 4″). Adhere to the inside of the card with the white card in the folded position. ONLY place adhesive on the back of the right hand section. Centre it inside the card to the right and at the top and bottom. Close up the card and adhere the square panel in through the window to adhere to the white bi-folded card. Only place adhesive on the back on the right hand section.

Check out the Hey Chick or the Hey Birthday Chick Bundles. They both have the cute chicks and dies that co-ordinate with each one.

In Australia? You can now order them in my store -> HERE. Please use the Host code: DMT9KWPQ

Hope you get to make a Pull Out Swing Card. They are fun.

Pull the tab and it opens to another sweet donkey.

All the donkeys were stamped in Black Memento ink and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends.

The Designer Series Paper panel on the front is from the Flower and Field pack also a free choice for Sale-A-Bration.

Want to make one of these cards yourself?

I will add the measurements just below in Metric and Imperial. Rather than recreating a video of putting the card together you can check out Lisa’s video here. She explains it so well. View it -> HERE.

TEAM DAY SWAPS!

Last week we had a Team Recognition Day for the Inky Fingers Team I am in. It was a lovely day of creating together especially as we hadn’t been able to meet together for so long. We chatted and created and were recognised for our achievements this year.

This was all the lovelies in our team who attended the day.

Clare our DDM (Demonstrator Manager for Australia) was there. It is always so lovely to see her bubbly self. 🙂 This is also with Sarah one of my team members who came along too. It was so great to share that with her.

Vanessa our team leader gave some of us a little gift. There were particular requirements to attend the day and those who achieved the requirements TWICE received this gift box with some special ribbon and embellishments. I was so honoured to receive one.

The boxes are the Mini Paper Pumpkin boxes. Isn’t it gorgeous!

Below are the swaps I received. I didn’t make any swaps. We only found out the day before and I really didn’t have time to get anything together but people were so lovely to share some of their swaps with me.

This is a little bar of soap in the little cellophane bags. It is a lovely idea instead of chocolate.

This one is created with the Dove of Hope stamp set with the World Map Dies. I love how these co-ordinate together.

This is a little treat bag. Another lovely gift. It’s a great size for a mini chocolate.

This card below was created by my friend Leonie. It’s the cutest mini Pop-Up card using the Warm and Toasty stamp set. The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Christmas.

The little tree inside is from the Most Wonderful Time stamp set.

Stop by tomorrow and I will share the cutest little gift box and mini cards we made as our projects.

Have a great day,

Jenny

STAND UP SEASIDE NOTIONS EASEL CARD

Last post I shared a fun Easel Card for the World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop. I said that I would tell you how it was made so you can make your own. So … Here it is.

Firstly, here is the card again for you. It’s a Stand Up Easel Card.

The original idea I found on Connie’s blog -> HERE.

I will give you the measurements in Metric and Imperial.

STAND UP EASEL CARD

Base Card:

Card – 10.5cm x 28cm (4 1/4″ x 11″) Score at 7cm and 14cm (2 3/4″ and 5 1/2″). Fold on score line.

Piece of Designer Series Paper 10.1cm x 13.6cm. (4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″)

Bottom piece of Designer Series Paper 10.1cm x 6.6cm (4 1/8″ x 2 5/8″)

Front Flap:

Card – 9cm x 23cm (3 1/2″ x 9″) Score at 11 1/2cm (4 1/2″). Fold on score lines.

For Inside of Front Flap: One piece of white card 8.5cm x 10.9cm (3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″)

Piece of Designer Series Paper 2.5cm x 8.5cm (1″ x 3 1/4″)

For outside of Front Flap: Card mat 8.6cm x 11.1cm (3 3/8″ x 4 3/8″)

White card for Front 8.1cm x 10.6cm (3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″)

Piece of Designer Series Paper 8.1cm x 2.5cm (3 1/4″ x 1″)

Decorate the card as you like. You will need an element on the bottom of the base card on the front to be able to tuck the flap in to for it to stand. This can be anything you like to use.

Have fun with it.

WORLD CARDMAKING DAY BLOGHOP!

It’s World Cardmaking Day.  How great is it that there is a date that we celebrate all things cardmaking whether it be creating the cards and the pleasure it brings or in  sharing the joy of giving the cards.

Today to celebrate we have a Blog Hop with lots of Demonstrators from around the world.  The theme today is sharing a corner of your world.

For me,  I live on the East coast of Australia just south of Sydney.  I live about 200 metres (1/4 mile) from the beach. I spend a lot of my time at the beach all year around.  It’s my happy place, my place to escape and leave the worries of the day behind.

This is my local beach.  We have so many beaches up and down the coast though which I do visit too.

So of course since the beach is a big part of my life I had to create a card for that.  I chose to use the Seaside Notions stamp set.

I love different folds too so wanted to make something a little different.  This is a type of Easel card.

Front on.

Side view you can see the fold and the flaps.

Don’t forget to decorate the inside.

See it open.

This was a fun card to make.  To save time I won’t share how to make it today.  Come back and visit me again tomorrow and I will give you the details.  Be sure to PIN one of the images to Pinterest so you know how to head back here.

You can now continue on the hop by heading to the link below where it says Click here.

MOUNTAIN AIR – CARD IN A BOX!

I had been playing with the Mountain Air Bundle recently. Before I move on to sharing projects with new products I thought I would share this card with you.  It’s a Card In A Box.  I love making these and I hadn’t made one in a while.

This bundle works so well with these style boxes.  You have lots of different images and can build up your scene.

To create the Card In A Box I have teamed it with the Country Club Designer Series Paper (retiring).

The sentiment is from the Peaceful Moments stamp set (carrying over).

The template for making the Card In A Box can be found on Di’s blog -> HERE.

I’m glad to see that this will be carrying over in to the new catalogue.  It gives me some more time to play with it later.

You can grab it now in store though -> HERE.

I have started playing with new products so I’m excited to be sharing some new projects with you starting next week.  EEK! New Catalogue!!!! 🙂

Have a great weekend,

Jenny
