Smoky Slate Blog Hop ~ Double Pop Up Gatefold card

CCS Logo 2021-22

Each week some of the Art With Heart team are joining the Colour Creations Blog Hop to bring you creative inspiration to showcase our range of 50+ gorgeous Stampin’ Up! colours.

Week 43 – Smoky Slate

Tonight’s fancy fold design has been around for a while now, and I’ve finally had a go creating one! I am using the What’s Cookin’ Bundle (soon to retire 😢) so if you want it buy it, be sure to do so asap.

I started with a Smoky Slate card base for my Double Pop Up Gatefold design. Now that my card has a baking theme, and it is something I love doing with my girls, I thought it appropriate to use the heart pattern (Sweet Talk designer paper) from the 2022 Jan-June Mini catalogue. Real Red is one of the colours in these papers, so that is what I have used for my matt layers.

Firstly, I folded and glued the mechanisms into the card, one at top left and one at bottom right.

Once I had all the cardstock layers cut (you can find the measurements below), I stamped the images in Smoky Slate and Real Red ink and die cut some out with the coordinating Cookin’ dies, before gluing all the layers together and placing them onto my card.

I love how these stamps have that distinctive look to them!

Today’s project is a Pop Out Swing card inspired by Rose Coleman, in Canada. I slightly altered the measurements to fit the South Pacific (Metric) market and you can find these below.
