Easy Accent Fold for Handmade Cards

Splendid-thoughts-fun-fold-frontToday's project features an easy accent fold for your handmade cards.  This design was created for our monthly Stars Team Meeting for a Mystery Stamping session.  Although simple in design, it's a sweet alternative to a traditional fold for a card. 

Here is the recipe and the only details that were given to the Stars Team before our virtual gathering on Zoom:

Base: Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Cardstock [159276] or Very Vanilla 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
Designer Paper: Two pieces- 1 x 4 and 1 x 5-1/2
Punch or Label and Stamp set/bundle (Splendid Thoughts Bundle (English) [159677])
 
Now let's take a look to see how it's all put together.

Lisa's Inklings:

Here's another version with a different color scheme...

Splendid-thoughts-fun-foldTry overlapping images especially if outline images like on this card.  These from the Splendid Thoughts Bundle (English) [159677] are so pretty.

Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home Gift Idea

Honeybee-home-stampin-up-gift-ideaToday's project is a Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home gift idea.  This one has been in my "pocket" for a while and life has been so busy, that it is delayed here on the blog.

If you have been following me for a while, you know that this is a favorite gift idea of mine and this crafter is always on the lookout for cute tea towels or kitchen towels that coordinate with our stamps and dies.  Stampin' Up! is fabulous at staying on trend so these usually are very easy to find!

Here are a couple more of my favorite "fancied-up" towels...
This one includes a cute and simple gift box as part of the presentation.

Did you see this one with the non-traditional colored rainbow?

Here's the quick video how-to for today's gift project...

Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home Gift Idea

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Cut your paper for your "tag" so that it complements the towel.  On this one, the patterned paper is cut 3-1/4 " square, and the coordinating card stock is 3-1/2" square.
  • You can use ribbon, twine, or jute to thread through the punched holes. 
  • Notice how the flowers extend beyond the tag?  You are not confined to that space.  Think outside of the box!

Here are the supplies that are currently available used on this project...

Product List

Honeybee-home-towel-diy-giftThere are so many ways to use your paper crafting supplies to make a simple gift extra special.  Use this Stampin' Up! Honeybee Home gift idea as inspiration to create your own DIY gift idea then share it with us over on Ink and Inspirations Stampers on Facebook!

Masculine Birthday Cards with Stampin' Up! He's the Man

YouTube Thumbnail-Magic(1)Last week's Premiere featured two masculine birthday cards with the new Stampin' Up! Here's the Man Suite. You will love this group of products and if you struggle with masculine-themed cards, this is for you!

The die-cuts in the He's The Man 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper [159068] are fantastic for making quick cards!  It was hard to stop creating once getting started with these.

Here's the recording of the video from the Premiere.

Masculine Birthday Cards with Stampin' Up! He's the Man

Lisa's Inklings:
-For the diagonal cut on the He's The Man 12" X 12" Specialty Designer Series Paper [159068], upper left to the lower right of two prints.  It's easiest if one of the prints does not have specific directionality.
-For the fun fold, cut your card stock 4-1/4 x 11.  Score at 5-1/2 and cut 3" off of what will be the front of the card.

Masculine-birthday-card-hes-the-manFour dies were used on the card above. The two Crushed Curry Cardstock [131199] banners are cut with one die!

Classic-cars-birthday-card-hes-the-man

Keep in mind that you don't always have to stamp on neutral card stock.  On this card, Early Espresso Classic Stampin' Pad [147114] was used on Soft Succulent 8 1/2" X 11" Cardstock [155776].

Masculine-birthday-card-stampin-up-hes-the-manThe inside of the card has a simple strip of leftover designer paper on a Basic White Cardstock [159276] layer.

Bbq-masculine-birthday-cardWhat an easy fun fold card!  Just change the orientation of a piece cut from the front.

Handmade-masculine-birthday-card-fun-foldThe card front covers the inside layer of the card.  Here, two scrap strips of patterned paper were used on the Basic White piece.

Masculine-fun-fold-card-hes-the-manThis sentiment could be used for a birthday card, congratulatory card, or graduation card.  There is no sentiment stamped on the inside so that it can be customized later for the occasion.

Here are the supplies used for these cards...

Each time you place an order through my online store, it supports my business and allows me to continue sharing!  If you do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I would be honored and grateful to serve as yours.

On Friday February 11, 2022, my dear friend's (Alicia) 16 year old son, Carlos, went into the ER for abdominal pain and after a CT scan showing swollen lymph nodes and abnormal lab work, he was transferred to Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. 

After a biopsy, bone marrow biopsies and lumbar puncture, Carlos was diagnosed with Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma.  He has overcome many hurdles and is doing better but he has been at Texas Children’s since that day in February. 

During the month of June, I will be donating the proceeds from my Stampin’ Up! sales to the Rodriguez family. Please know that with each order you place from me, you are helping this sweet family during this very difficult time. Thank you so much!

Makeover Magic #4 - Mini Gift Bag or Gift Card Holder for the 2022 Graduate

YouTube Thumbnail-Magic(3)This 4th edition of Makeover Magic is a Gift Bag or Gift Card Holder for your 2022 Graduate.  The original was made for a thank you gift but the size is just right for cash, gift cards, or a little gift.

Mini-bag-gift-card-holder-graduate-2022The makeover version uses the beautiful new Texture Chic 12" X 12"  Specialty Designer Series Paper [158808] from the new annual catalog along with the dies from All That Dies [159078] and the sentiment from Celebrating You Cling Stamp Set (English) [158028].  There wasn't one piece of gold foil in my stash so the punched stems are gold embossed to coordinate with the other elements of the bag.

Let's take a look at the video so you can make one today!

Mini Gift Bag or Gift Card Holder for the 2022 Graduate

Lisa's Inklings:
Texture Chic Specialty Designer Series Paper [158808] is cut 6 x 8-1/2.
8-1/2" side is scored at 3,4,7, and 8.
6" side is scored at 1, 4-1/2, 5-1/2. 
The 1" will be the bottom of the bag.
Petal Pink Cardstock [146985] is cut 3x 3 to die-cut.
Basic White Cardstock [159276] is cut 4 x 5 for die-cut for sentiment and punched pieces.

Gift-card-holder-graduate-2022A little color was added to the sentiment with a Petal Pink Stampin' Blends Combo Pack [154893]

Here are the supplies used for today's project.   I would be happy to have you pick up this stamp set and other supplies from me! Just simply click on any image below to have it shipped to your home right away! Thank you so much for choosing me as your Stampin' Up! Demonstrator!

Gift-card-holder-bag-graduate-2022Don't you love the simplicity of this little bag?  And, by switching up the patterned paper and sentiment, you can use it for almost any occasion when giving a small gift, cash, or gift cards.

Comment below with how you will use your bag and thank you so much for tuning in today for this version of Makeover Magic and a mini gift bag or gift card holder for the 2022 Graduate.


Artfully Layered Card with Vellum Tip

Artfully-layered-card-with-vellumHere's a birthday card made with the Artfully Layered Bundle and a vellum tip.  The summery, tropical feel of this card is nice for late spring and summer birthdays here in North America.

When using vellum, you have to be a little sneaky with your adhesive so that it doesn't show through the other side.  In this short video on YouTube, you can see how the placement of the greenery hides the adhesive.
