Hello Harvest Fun Fold Card

This month’s kit-to go features the Hello Harvest Bundle and the Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper from the Stampin’ Up! July-December 2022 Mini Catalog.  One of the cards is this Hello Harvest Fun Fold card.  The fun fold is the book binding fold variation has been rotated so that it opens from bottom to top.  Since I choose one of the black and white designer series papers as my base layer, I decided to keep the pumpkin white and bring in additional color by coloring the floral spray for the top of the pumpkin.  I think it was a great choice! What do you think?

Windmill Side Panel Step Card

This week, I am sharing another card from the recent All About Tulips Class.  It’s a Windmill Side Panel Step card.  This is a fun card to make and though it looks complicated, it’s not.  The only stamping is the sentiment.  The remainder of design elements include the Flowering Fields Designer Series Paper and die cuts!  You’ll find all the components for the windmill in the Windmill Fields Dies. After prepping the materials, the assembly only takes a few minutes so it’s one of those projects where you can plan to make card multiples.  Just cut the extra pieces and have everything ready to assemble at once.  You’ll find the assembly video for the Windmill Side Panel Step Card and the project material dimensions below.

Plentiful Plants Fun Fold Card

Are you a plant lover?  I am but unfortunately I do not have a “green thumb”.  Thankful my husband keeps our houseplants alive!  But Stampin’ Up! offers me the chance to create plants that don’t need watering or the right amount of light to survive (LOL).  This week, I have a fun fold card featuring the Plentiful Plants Bundle.  It also features the Bloom Where You’re Planted Designer Series Paper which coordinates with the stamp bundle. What’s great is the Perfect Plants Dies from the bundle will cut some of the images found in the designer series paper.  This is especially helpful when you need to create a card quickly.  As you’ll notice on the stamped envelope below, the plant and pot have shading.  Thanks to the Plentiful Plants Stamp Set containing Distinktive stamps which create beautiful shaded images.

The materials, measurements and assembly details are located below the card photo.
