Make two cards in a snap with the Angle Fold card!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a fun and easy way to create two cards at the same time with the Angle Fold card! With the holiday’s quickly approaching, finding cards that are easy to make and make multiples of, can be a time saver! When it comes to the Angle Fold card, you really have to make two cards at the same time with cutting the DSP and cardstock. When creating today’s card, I stamped, cut, die cut, and punched enough to make two cards.

First start with this design from the Come to Gather DSP for the base layer, you will make your first cut at 4”, turn the DSP to make your second and third cut at 5 ¼”, and you will have a 1 ½” x 4” piece of scrap, cut this in half, which will give you two pieces at ¾” x 4”(This is if you are cutting a new piece of DSP). For the two pieces of DSP measuring 4” x 5 ¼”, you will cut them both diagonally, but in different directions. The reason for this, is that since you are using one design of DSP, but both sides, flipping one side over will not fit the cardstock card base:

The cardstock card base is Crumb Cake cardstock and you will use a full sheet. First you will SCORE in half along the 8 ½” side and the 11” side (4 ¼” and 5 ½”). Then you will have to line the cardstock DIAGONALLY in your trimmer, so that each end (or tip) of the cardstock is lined up in the track, you will have to remove your scoring blade to get the cardstock to fit. I used the new trimmer for this and the trimmer left an “indentation” at each end from pressing the arm down to cut, however, I used my bone folder to burnish the ends flat. Do not burnish the score lines on the cardstock until you place your DSP, one card will open one way and the other will open the other way. I used liquid glue to adhere the DSP, this gave time to adjust the DSP if needed:

For the card front: 

1. I used a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink on the tree trunk stamp, used another sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the edge of the stamp, and stamped this on Whisper White cardstock. I fussy cut the tree trunk out, heat embossed the sentiment in White Emboss Powder, and used the sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the edge of the cardstock. I did this process twice so I would have two of these.

2. I used the Sprig Punch to cut out of Silver Foil Sheet and cut the sprig in half. I did this twice.

3. I used the Crumb Cake Twine to make a bow, one for each card.

4. I used the Silvery Shimmer Metallic ink to stamp the large and small leaves on Pretty Peacock, Mint Macaron, and Crumb Cake cardstocks. The leaves are then cut out with the coordinating dies.

5. I used the small leaf die from Beautiful Layers to cut out of Silver Foil Sheets, two for each card. This DSP reminded me of this die:

Since the tree trunk is the center focal point, you only want to adhere one half to the DSP. I adhered the two sprig pieces to the back of the tree trunk and then adhered the lower half to the DSP:

Use two of the leaves to help as a “closure”, but they need to be placed on the opposite side of the tree trunk. I adhered the leaves with a dimensional, so they acted as a tab to fold the tree trunk under:

I used glue dots to adhere the twine bow and the two foil leaves to complete the card front:

For the inside, on a 4” x 5 ¼” Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink, the small leaf in Silvery Shimmer Metallic ink, adhere one of the leaves, and adhere one of the ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

Here are my completed two cards:

Isn’t this a fun card?? I just love it when you can make two cards at once, especially for the holidays!! When you make this card, you just need to keep in mind what you are going to use for tabs, whether it’s circles, ovals, squares, or like I used, leaves.

Heat embossing with All Wired Up!

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a quick and easy heat embossing card with the All Wired Up background stamp and Rooted in Nature stamp set! When I first say the All Wired Up stamp in the new annual catalog, I just had to have it! I have a few ideas for this background stamp, but I thought my first card would be to heat emboss and I just love the Copper and Terracotta Tile combination! 

The base layer is Terracotta Tile cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I actually used my Stamparatus to stamp onto the cardstock, then this way if I didn’t get a part of the stamp inked up very well with the VersaMark stamp, I was easily able to ink and stamp again. I sprinkled Copper Emboss Powder and set with my heat tool:

The rest of the card front is very simple, one of the Leaf Trinkets in Copper, the Crumb Cake twine, the sentiment heat embossed in Copper on Very Vanilla cardstock and cut out with the “square rectangle” from the Rectangle Stitched Framelits, and the tree is inked with a sponge dauber in Mossy Meadow ink and the trunk is with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker on Very Vanilla cardstock, cut out with the largest oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits:

I used enough of the twine to twist around the back of the oval tree piece, adhering with snail, and then placing dimensionals on top to keep in place and adhere to the embossed base layer. The copper leaf is adhered with glue dots to the sentiment and then this is adhered to the corner of the embossed base layer:

This completed piece is adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

The inside sentiment is on Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, in Terracotta Tile ink, the small leaf is also in Terracotta Tile ink, and the large leaf is in Crumb Cake ink, each leaf stamped three times so you have from dark to light images:

Pretty quick and easy to make! I can tell that Terracotta Tile is going to be a new fall favorite! This is a fun alternative card to make for the Rooted in Nature stamp set and if you were lucky to get the Home to Roost stamp set from this year’s Sale-A-Bration, this would pair perfectly with it too!!

Thinking of you with Rooted in Nature

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a great card featuring the Nature’s Poem Suite! This really is a perfect greeting for just about any occasion. I am happy to say that except for the Designer Series Paper and the cardstock pack, this suite is carrying over to the new catalog! This really is beautiful and versatile designer series paper and I will be sad to see it go at the end of this catalog! 

One of my favorite things to do with the tree trunk from the stamp set is to color it with daubers and then fussy cut it out. I first use a sponge dauber with Crumb Cake ink and color it all over, I then use another sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink around the outside of the tree trunk, and finally use my snips to cut out. After this, I use the sponge dauber with Soft Suede ink and go around the edge, which not only blends into the stamped image, but hides any mistakes you made. For today’s card, I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and heat embossed White Embossing Powder:

Additionally for the front of the card, you will need this design from the DSP cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, a 1” x 4” piece of Copper Foil Sheet embossed with the Climbing Vine TIEF, one of the copper Leaves Trinkets, and I created this little “knot” with the Nature’s Twine by “folding” the twine over about three times, tied the end piece around the middle into a knot, cut the end piece apart, and then then just used my finger tips to fray the ends:

To assemble the card front, I first adhered the embossed Copper Foil Sheet, adhered the sentiment piece with dimensionals, adhered the knotted twine and the trinket with glue dots:

This piece is then adhered to a 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scored at 4 ¼”, Tranquil Tide cardstock card base:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼” and then I adhered a ¾” x 4” piece of the DSP along the side. Typically, when you cut DSP you will have a 1 ½” x 4” piece left over and I will cut that in half so I have two pieces to use for the inside of my card:

Wasn’t this a fun and easy card to make? I chose to leave the inside blank, then this way I can use it for any reason, just have to stamp the sentiment! As I am writing, the DSP and cardstock pack are still available from my online store, but this will be only while supplies last since they are on the retirement list. The stamp set, dies, twine, and trinkets are carrying over into the new catalog, however, the discounted bundle for the stamp and dies are not.

Hello and welcome to today’s card, featuring the Nature’s Poem Suite, located on pages 142-144 in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog. This is a great card that is quick and simple to make AND uses that leftover Designer Series Paper! I have some 3” x 3” squares left over from the card swap I participated in, so this is what I started with to create this card. If you have multiple cards that you need to make, cutting your Designer Series Paper into smaller pieces will also make it go farther!

The card base is Thick Very Vanilla cardstock, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”. The card front is embossed using the Pinewood Planks Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder:

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the trunk image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Soft Suede ink, stamping off first. Then using the sentiment from this stamp set, heat emboss in White Embossing Powder. The image on the right is embossed first and stamped second. I like the result on the left!

I used the Detailed Trio Punch to round the edges of the card base and the base layer DSP and then adhered the layers to the card base:

I cut a piece of the Burlap Ribbon, adhered that across, and then cut a piece of Nature’s Twine in Grapefruit Grove, working the strands apart on the ends:

fullsizeoutput_1f82fullsizeoutput_1f85

You can use dimensionals to keep the twine in place:

The sentiment is placed on top of the dimensionals, I used one of the leaves from the Leaves Trinkets, tying a doubled piece of Linen Thread in a knot, and used a glue dot to adhere:
