Another Fun Fold- Diamond Fold Card with a Toy Story Flair

Mia-toy-story-dressToday's fun fold/diamond fold card was inspired by this Toy Story themed dress that I made for our granddaughter, Mia.  The photo above is from her trip to Disney in March 2020...pre-pandemic.  With wanting to mimic the cow-hide print of the dress, I decided to make my own patterned paper as shown below.

Cow-hide-print-1Basic Black Combo Pack Stampin' Blends [147942]were used to create the abstract pattern for the cow-hide pieces. 

Cow-hide-print-2Three pieces of the Whisper White  Cardstock [100730] were created with this pattern.  Measurements for all cuts and scores are listed below.

Fun-fold-diamond-fold-cardHere's the finished card.  The horse (which I hope somewhat resembles Woody's horse, Bullseye) was stamped and die cut using the Hippo Happiness Bundle (English) [154080].

Here are the details for this card so you can make your own. Any Toy Story fans out there?

You can see a video for another card with this diamond fold HERE.

Let Your Faith Be Bigger Than Your Fear

IMG_4110Let your faith be bigger than your fear...a statement so fitting for these times. 

This sentiment is one from the Ridiculously Awesome Cling Stamp Set [152512] from Stampin' Up! and is highlighted by the beautiful Rainbow Glimmer Paper [153056].  And, who remembers this technique?  It's so much fun and super easy!  The scrappy scrip technique is a great way to get a very "stand out" background. See more samples and the video tutorial HERE.

Here are the measurements for this card:

2020 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card - Fun Fold with Gnome for Christmas

Stampin- up-fun-fold-christmas-card-gnomeToday's project features a fun fold idea with Gnome for the Holidays for this 2020 Stampin' Up! Christmas Card.

The video tutorial is a recording from yesterday's Facebook Live, Craft and Chat on Ink and Inspirations with Lisa Brown.  As usual, it IS a little chatty but we have fun and made a really cute Christmas card.

Gnome for the Holidays is a precious stamp set.  You can see how the conversion of one to a Halloween gnome HERE.

Here's the recording of the LIVE broadcast.  Have a look then read on for some details that will be helpful to you! 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Base is cut 10-1/2 x 5-1/2. Score at 3-1/2 and 7. Score folds as seen on video (1-7/8").
  • Strip for belly band is cut 1 x 11.
  • DSP - 2 pieces cut at 5-1/8 x 3-1/4. Cut corners diagonally at 1-7/8" on inner side of each piece as seen in video. Cut off 1/2" of each flat end of diagonal piece.
  • Whisper White is cut at 5-1/8 x 3-1/4. Cut diagonally at top and bottom as seen in video; again measuring to 1-7/8".

IMG_4251This fun and fancy fold is called a miura fold...origami.  The back and forth folding helps with the overall completed look but it confuses me at times as you saw in the video! ;)

Also in the video, the sentiment had to be "re-worked" but this is the version I prefer.  Next go around, it might be good for me to try stamping the sentiment first.

IMG_4252The colors in this designer series paper are beautiful.  Don't you love the Highland Heather mixed with those Stampin' Up! blues?

You know you'd love to try this fun fold!  Here is a listing of supplies so you can re-create this one.
