G is for Glimmer Paper

Welcome to my ABC “Sale-A-Bration” Series! This series features products from the 2018 Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration brochures. Today I’m showcasing the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (and more). This is a no-mess way to add glitter accents! This paper is embedded with small pieces of glitter. Glitter won’t brush off or flake off so there’s no clean up. You get 24 6×6 glittered sheets: 8 each of 3 colors (Iridescent, light green, turquoise)

This paper is so much fun to add accents for a little touch of sparkle to any project.  I punched balloons to go with the Party Pandas for this fun fold birthday card inspired by a card Linda Heller shared that was designed by Janet Munden.

I love these adorable pandas! They remind me of Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei. I live in Maryland just an hour outside Washington D.C. where you can visit the giant pandas at the National Zoo.   My Pre-K students and I even watch these giant pandas right in our classroom through Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s Panda Cams. Click on the link below if you want to see what Tian Tian, Mei Xiang and Bei Bei are up to today. (Be forewarned this could get addictive!)

Earlier today I snapped these photos as I watched them eat their lunch. (Now you know how I really spend my day.  LOL)

I love how this card opens for an upright version of a Double Z-Fold card.

Here’s what it looks like from the side. You can see how it gets it’s Double Z-Fold name.

This is a fun card to make.  It is a little wider than others I have shared so here’s the measurements:

Lemon Lime Twist: 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2 and 8 1/4.

Basic Black: 3 1/4 x 10, scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2.

Whisper White: 3 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.

Bubbles & Fizz DSP: 1 x 4 1/4 for top piece, (2) 1 x 2 1/2 for bottom pieces.

You can click HERE to see another Double Z-Fold card I shared with a photo tutorial how to assemble.

Did you notice the colors of my balloons? Are you wondering where I got the Calypso Coral Glimmer Paper? Here’s a cool tip…You can make any color glimmer paper you want with the Iridescent Glimmer Paper, reinkers, and an Aqua Painter.  Just add a few drops of reinker in the lid of your ink pad and use the Aqua Painter to color the Iridescent Glimmer Paper. (*You never want to pick up ink directly from your pad using the Aqua Painter or Blender Pens.) You want to make sure to go in one direction so you don’t ruin the bristles on your Aqua Painter.  Let it dry before cutting or punching.  Now you can add a little glimmer to any project!

Here’s another look at today’s card and matching envelope.

A Birthday Fun Fold for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #8

Fun fold birthday card using Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper and Stylized Birthday Stamp Set from Stampin Up. For inspiration, directions, and products visit my blog www.juststampin.com.

I am excited to share my card for this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge. This week’s board was designed by my talented friend, Susan Itell.

img_4051

It’s all about shapes for me this week. I chose the far left row going down: rectangle, circle, square. I created this fun fold birthday card.

Fun fold birthday card using Eastern Palace Designer Series Paper and Stylized Birthday Stamp Set from Stampin Up. For inspiration, directions, and products visit my blog www.juststampin.com.

I made a square card. The DSP has circle designs which I used to cut a rectangle to layer on the front.  The sentiment is stamped on a square piece of cardstock cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. How easy it that to pick 3 and play along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge?! I hope you will join the fun!

This fun fold is a double Z fold design.  Here’s how I made it…

I started with 2 strips of cardstock. The base piece is cut at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 and scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4. The top strip with the sentiment is cut at 7 x 2 3/4 and scored at 2 1/8 and 4 1/4. The DSP layers for the base measure 1 7/8 x 4 (on front) and 4 x 4 (back right). The senitments are stamped on a 2 1/2″ square and  1 7/8 x 2 1/2.  The last piece of DSP measures 1 7/8 x 2 1/2.

Apply glue to the back of the smaller strip (behind the DSP section only) and adhere to the center of the DSP on the card base.

Open the smaller Z fold to the right and close the front of the card base with the DSP panel. Apply glue just along the edges as shown and fold to close and adhere.

I added a bow from the 2017-2019 In Color Bitty Bows and some Pearl Basic Jewels.

The DSP from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper coordinates together nicely.  Here’s a view of what the opened card looks like from above. I like this fun fold!

Maryann really stepped it up on her card with the lovely layers, candy dots, and popped up sentiment. This card really “looks beautiful”!

I love making fun fold cards. The Double Z fold looks hard but it really just takes a few simple scores to make.  For directions and to see two of the Z fold cards I shared previously click HERE and HERE.

Please leave a comment below to let Maryann know how much you love her fun fold creation (especially if you are the lucky person who received this in the swap). Thanks again to everyone who participated!  It was so much fun getting “Happy Mail”! Check back tomorrow for another fun fold swap card. I plan to showcase all of the cards while I am away on vacation so you will continue to be inspired!

Did you know that yesterday was National Ice Cream Day? I just had to celebrate and honor this special day with some delicious homemade ice cream after a day on the beach.
