Pals Blog Hop: Wicked Folds

Welcome to the Pals October, 2018 Blog Hop. It’s a spooky time of year so watch out for “Wicked Folds” while you hop from blog to blog. We promise not to be too scary.

You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

The creation of a fold should not be difficult, should not be laborious and shouldn’t take too much time (LOL). That’s my story and I’m sticking to it with my fold today.  I promise you my card is super easy peasy!  It literally has only four folds with stamping directly on the base of the card, which measures 12″ x 5-1/2″.  It is scored at 2″, 4″, 8″ and 10″.  You will see in the images below how it’s folded.


Easy right?  To create the heart-shaped cut out I used the heart from the Puzzle Pieces thinlits in the middle of each folder at the 2″ & 8″ folds.  To stamp the image directly in the center of the heart, I used the Stamparatus to line up the stamp and the open hearts created with the thinlits.  I did use our 12″ x 12″ cardstock and cut it at 5-1/2″,  but you can also use a 8-12″ x 11″ sheet by cutting two sheets at  5-1/2″ x 8″ and score them both at 2″ and 4″.  Then you simply glue together the 4″ sides on top of the other (overlapping it).

Now it’s time to use the Blog Hop Line-up below to see what the rest of my Pals have created to inspire you.. Don’t forget to show us some love by commenting on our creations.

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, November 14, 2018 for the next Pals Blog Hop. November is time for “Anything But a Card” where the Pals will feature creations suitable for holiday gifting. Don’t miss the fun.

Timeless Tidings Project Kit for Christmas Cards

Right now is the perfect time to start your own handmade Christmas cards.  This kit makes 20 cards: 5 each of 4 designs and they measure 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.

When you buy this kit with the Clear Mount Stamp Set (it costs much less than wood), I will send you the acrylic blocks needed for FREE!  Everything you need to buy to get started is in the link below:

If you want to purchase additional adhesive refills, it’s always an option:

Celebrate You with Garden Impressions

A handmade card should NOT be stressful to put together!  Today’s card was put together in-between my elliptical work-outs (LOL).  I did a quick 20-minute cardio followed by a 10 minute rest period than another 20 minutes repeated four times.  What! A rest period?  Yes, a rest period!  I had to be very careful about not letting sweat beads drip on the paper (LOL).

Here’s how the card was put together in 10 minutes (or less):

  1. Cut one sheet of Powder Pink cardstock in half.  It doesn’t matter if it’s the 8-1/2″ or 11″ side.  After it’s been cut,  fold & crease one of the halves in half.  It’s best if the paper is scored and if you have a Stampin’ Trimmer, even better!  Press it down with a bone folder.
  2. Take a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and cut it 1/4 inch smaller than the Powder Pink card base so it measures 4″ x 5-1/4″.
  3. Trim down the Garden Impression designer series paper (6″ x 6″) to 1/4″ inch smaller than the Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ x 5″).
  4. Use a scrap of Basic Black & scrap of Basic White to cut out the words from the thinlits. Use Multipurpose Liquid glue to adhere it and use a few Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals on “YOU” to give it a slight pop.  Dress up the word with three of the tiny Rhinestones.
*I love Multipurpose Liquid Glue because it allows you to position the paper perfectly before it dries.  Especially if you use the eye-ball method to put the card layers together (LOL).
