Fancy Fold card with Lots of Labels

Hello Crafters,

Today I am featuring the Lots of Labels framelits to create this Fancy Fold card inspired by Dawn Griffith. I love to try different fancy folds and this one we did in my class on Saturday and the ladies loved it, although at first took fright wondering if it was going to be difficult to create!

I’m also using my favourite Designer Series paper, Delightful Daisy. #cutitnothoardit

I added a piece of ribbon to the left of the label die, which is an addition to the original creator. I just thought it helped show that is where to pull to open this style of card.

Posy of Gerberas with Stampin’ Up! Daisy Delight

Dear Crafters,

Today I have a gorgeous posy of flowers made out of paper, yes paper, and if you come along to my class tomorrow, I’ll show you how to make them!

I had my mum call in yesterday and she couldn’t believe that they weren’t real flowers!

You know when you walk into a florist to buy a bunch of flowers and you nearly fall over at the price of them? Well, this Daisy Delight bundle is a great bargain for $54.75 which is probably what many spend on buying a bunch of flowers that will die in a weeks time, but these ones you can keep for a lifetime and enjoy making many more for all your friends for their birthdays!!!! Wouldn’t that be such a wonderful gift to receive?!!!

Daisy Delight by Kate Morgan, Independent Stampin Up Demonstrator, Rowville 3D

Each flower is made up of 3 stamped and punched flowers and offset when glued together. I also used my bone folder to turn the ends of the petals down.

The stems of the flowers are made using cheap plastic drinking straws that I had in the kitchen cupboard, and I covered them with florists tape.

This is the back of the flower. You can see that the straw has been cut 5 times about 1/2cm down and opened up. This was glued with Tombo Multipurpose glue to the back of the flower. It didn’t look aesthetically pleasing, so I then cut a ring using the 3/8″ and 3/4″ circle punches to cover it and also make it more sturdy!

The greenery was something I have had for many years and it goes so well with these gerberas!

What do you think? These are just so bright and cheery and I reckon they would make the perfect gifts for anyone to brighten their day!

Foxy, Peekaboo Peach

Dear Crafters,

Today I have challenged myself to make a card using the new In Color, Peekaboo Peach. Now I have to tell you, it was my least favourite of the 2016-2018 in colors, but after completing this card, I think differently of it, lol. It just works so well for the colour of the fox!

I am so happy that this stamp set is carrying over into the new annual catalogue 🙂

I haven’t added a sentiment to this card, because I want to add a “number” when the time comes, to give it to someone with their birthday year!!!!

Dear Crafters,

I just love this technique of using dies to embossing without cutting!

I stamped the flamingo in Flirty Flamingo and Berry Blast ink, however I think I need to go a bit lighter in my colours next time. But hey, it still gives some great effect of maybe a flamingo in the evening! lol
