Do you have a box of scraps?

I was having a little rummage through my scrap box, offcuts of paper, bits of ribbon and then the mojo bit me!  Here is a little tag, just using up some scraps.   Oh, the jingle bells, that is cut from the scrap of merry music paper.  I did add a bit of bling with the jewels.  That’s all, a short and sweet post and hopefully you will now go and check through your scraps box.

Tutorial twist and pop up card

I’ve made a few of these cards, I love the way they have a little surprise when the recipient opens it.  You can find tutorials on youtube, but, I like the step by step in front of me and therefore, I’ve done this little guide for anyone who is like me!

You are going to need three pieces of cardstock, and ideally a scoreboard as there is a little bit of scoring involved in this project.

Your pieces of cardstock measure: 26 x 9cm  /  20 x 9cm  and 30 x 10cm.  The 30×10 piece is the card base.

Step 1 – using the piece that is 26 x 9cm, score at 6.5cm, 13cm and 19.5cm.  Put this piece to one side.

Step 2 – using the 20 x 9cm piece, using a pencil, mark at 5.5cm in at each end.  You are going to score an ‘X’ scoring diagonally.  Then score the piece in half along the long edge.

Give the folds a good crease using your bone folder. It is going to fold so it looks like a little house!  I’ve taken some pictures of the folds and hope it helps when you come to this part.

Step 3 – taking your 30×10 piece, score this in half.  It is up to you, but I decorate the inside of this piece. I decorate just one part of the inside, what would be the top, so that I can write on the bottom part.

The technical part.  

With the card open, on the fold, mark the centre.  Taking the folded cardstock from step 2, you are going to glue the triangle and then stick this into the card at the centre point.  I find the easiest way is to glue the ‘triangle’ and then fold the card down.  You are then going to repeat this with the other ‘triangle’.

You should end up with this.

The next stage is to add in the 26×9 piece of cardstock.

Mark the centre of the insert (the 20×9 piece).
Taking the 26×9 piece, place the centre fold, at the centre mark you have just made.

Fold over the outside flaps and glue the parts marked with an ‘x’.

After following these steps, I hope that you have ended up with what I have in the little video and all you need to do now is to decorate it.

The 2018 Petal Passion Suite

This is a set that is has to go on the shopping list.  The petal palette stamp sets is a two stamp set, with 15 stamps.  I love the  bird and it has a mix of sentiments.  The stamps are coming to you with coordinating framelits, you can get them separately, or grab a bundle.

At the Stampin’ Up! On Stage, we got to play withe some of the petal passion suite.  Sorry this image is a bit blurry, I was zooming around the display area.  As you can see we have some black and white papers – great for adding your own colour – Stampin’ Up! make it so easy for coordinating products.

You’ll see that we also have a petal passion memories and more card pack.  Great for scrapbooking and also using them as card fronts.

This is the little sample pack we got to play with, I stamped a bird and the sentiment onto the cardstock supplied.  You don’t need a lot to get creative.

And here is my finished card.
