A Fabulous Fun Fold Card With Butterfly Brilliance Bundle

It's great to have a fun fold card recipe that's easy to make and impressive to look at.  I think this fun fold is one of those cards. Add to that the lovely Butterfly Brilliance Bundle, and you have a winner! By the way, the Butterfly Brilliance Bundle is not carrying over to the new catalog, but you will still be able to purchase the stamp set and dies separately. So, if you want to save 10 percent on the bundle, now is the time to purchase it! You have until the end of May 3rd when the new Annual Catalog goes live.

Well, here are the three cards I made - each with different dsp and colors:

Butterfly brilliance farm fresh three cards2

Which one do you prefer? I'm kinda partial to the one on the bottom made with the Waves of the Ocean designer series paper.  I love that Calypso Coral color and the touch of  black.

Butterfly brilliance farm fresh coral2

I like them all though.  I used upcoming and new DSP - Hues of Happiness on the middle card which I made during Farm Fresh Cards FB live.  

Butterfly brilliance farm fresh blue2

And here's what the inside looks like:

Butterfly brilliance farm fresh blue inside2

The Brilliance dies are fabulous.  There are dies to cut the solid butterfly and also dies to cut that intricate top layer on the butterflies.

Here are the measurements for this card:

Card base: 4 1/4 x 8 1/4" scored at 2 3/4"

Card base for small card: 8 1/4 x 3" scored at 4 1/8"

DSP: 3 7/8 x 2 3/4"; 2 1/2 x 4"; 5 1/4 x 4", 

White card stock for layers: 2 5/8 x 4 1/8"; 4 x 2 7/8"; 2 3/4 x 4" for inside sentiment in small card.

Gorgeous Cards With Hues of Happiness Suite

Oh my - I'm loving the Hues of Happiness Suite and can't wait to share it with my you! The paper is fabulous - gorgeous, rich, colors, and beautiful roses to boot. The stamps - ah - lovely floral images with that elegant font! The dies - use them to die cut those gorgeous flowers (and more). This suite is only available to demonstrators right now.  It will be available for purchase on May 3rd when the new catalog goes live. (Do you need a new Annual Catalog? - email me at vernastamps@gmail.com)

I used one sketch to make all of these cards:

Make Quick Mini Pop-Out Cards

You can make these adorable pop-out cards in a jiffy and they are a great way to use up retiring designer series paper! And who doesn't need a cute little card for a gift, gift bag, or just to say "hello?" Inspiration for this card is from a YouTube video by the gal at Stampin' Savvy.

MIni explosion cards2

All of the dsp I used for these cards is retiring - Bloom Where You're Planted, Sweet Symmetry and Pansy Petals. Now is a great time to scoop up the retiring paper - some of it's at a discounted price! 

I've started with a 6 x 6 piece of DSP and scored it at 3" each way, and then one way on the diagonal. This creates 4 sections on the paper.

Here's a pic of the Plentiful Plants open after it's been folded and then opened:

Watch my video tutorial here for all of the details to make these cards (I'm live on FB every Wednesday at 4:00 pm EST).

Measurements:

6 x 6 dsp

Score on each side at 3"

Score diagonally once.

2 3/4 x 2 3/4" Basic White for inside sentiment

One Card Sketch, Three Cards With New Cup of Tea Stamp Set

Oh it's tea time with the lovely Tea Boutique Suite! The "flavors" of this set are "bright", and "sweet" with high "floral" notes! The three cards I made today use the Cup of Tea Bundle and Tea Boutique Designer Series Paper. It is beautiful, bright and cheerful! Step into all of the beauty of tea time with this suite that will be released for purchase May 3rd. Want it sooner?  Purchase the starter kit ($125.00 of product for $99.00) and add it to your kit! Email me for more information on that.  

Here are the three lovely cards:

Cup of Tea 3 Cards

They are each so different, yet made using the same card sketch.

For this card I used one of the Heart and Home doilies (turned it around and used the white side) with the Tea Boutique designer series paper.

Cup of tea doily card2

The 2nd card is portrait and I've used two of the sentiment panels in the background. The tea cup is on a "platter" (small oval from the Double Oval Punch). I really love the designer series paper the cup is die cut from - and of course it's from the Tea Boutique DSP along with the other DSP on the card. Make sure you check out the tea bag - it's so cute!

Cup of Tea tea bag card2

And here is the card I made during Mystery Stamping featuring Fresh Freesia card stock with the Tea Boutique DSP. Same layout but landscape. Again, same card sketch:

Cup of Tea Freesia card2

Measurements for this sketch:

Card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2" scored at 4 1/4"

Card stock layer - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8"

Card stock layers - 1 5/8 x 3 3/4" (3 of these)

Make a DSP Wallet Fun Fold Card

This was sooo much fun to make and I couldn't wait to share it tonight.  I saw Ronda Wade make one of these cards on YouTube and just had to try it. It's a fabulous way to use up designer series paper, and boy do we have a lot of dsp retiring right now!

DSP Wallet Fun Fold Card Sailing 2

 

 

I used Waves of the Ocean dsp for this card. This paper is not carrying over to the new catalog, but is only available while supplies last. Lots of rich splashy color!

Here's the inside - a pocket on the left and a pull-out card on the right end:

DSP Wallet FunFold Card Sailing inside2

The bottom card is the card that pulls out of the DSP wallet - right side. Love the sail boat which is punched out with the Sail Boat Builder Punch. I used Waves of the Ocean DSP for the boat too. I think this card will make a great graduation card.

Here's one made with the Garden Greenhouse stamp set. Love the pink! 

DSP Wallet Fun Fold Garden Greenhouse2

I added a loop on the end of the pull-out card.

DSP Wallet Fund Fold Garden Greenhouse inside2

And one more - this one is elegant!

DSP Wallet Fun Fold Elegantly Said2

I've used the Elegantly Said stamp set and DSP.  The sentiments are embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. The doily is from the Heart and Home Suite.  Here's the inside:

Dsp wallet fun fold Elegantly Said open2

Measurements for this card:

12 x 12" DSP. Cut 1" off one end so the dsp is 12 x 11"

Score the 12" side at 4 1/4 and 8 1/2"; score the 11" side at 5 1/2"

Basic White card stock - 3 x 4" (two of these); 5 x 3 3/4" for pull out card.

Colored card stock or dsp for front layer - 4 1/4 x 3 1/4"

Colored card stock for pull out card - 5 1/4 x 4"

Kylie's International Blog Hop

I used the "Let's Set Sail" stamp set and Sailboat Builder Punch for my thank you cards. I also used the Waves of the Ocean DSP, which is only available while supplies last. This DSP is not only beautiful, but is so easy to use with many different stamps.

Let's set sail dsp card2

What's cool about this card recipe is that it uses a lot of designer series paper. I don't know about you, but I have a large stash, and as you can see in the picture below dsp is a huge feature of this card design.

Let's set sail dsp card open2

Technically, it doesn't say "thank you" but it's the time of year when my customers can use it for something else like graduation.  

Measurements for this card:

6 x 5 1/2" Basic White card base scored at 4 1/4"

Pacific Point Layers - 5 1/4 x 1 1/2 for front panel; 5 1/4 x 4 for inside of card
