W is for Waterfall Card

Stampin Up Waterfall Fun Fold Birthday card using This Little Piggy stamp set. For more fun fold card ideas visit www.juststampin.com

Welcome back to my ABC with Fun Folds series. Today’s card is a Waterfall card…It’s raining Pigs!  I absolutely love “This Little Piggy” stamp set and thought I would have some fun with them on today’s card. You will be amazed how easy this card is to create and whoever receives it (if you can part with it) will have tons of fun pulling the tab and seeing what comes next!

Here’s the details to make this fun waterfall card…

I started with a piece of 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 Flirty Flamingo for my card base. I adhered a piece of DSP that measures 4 x 5 1/4 piece to the base. The pull tab measures 2 x 8 1/2 and is scored at 1 3/4, 2 3/4, and 3 3/4.  Fold the score lines facing you. Punch the long end with the Tag Topper Punch.

The images are stamped on 3 pieces of 1 3/4 x 2 pieces of Shimmery White using the Basic Black Archival Ink and colored using an Aqua Painter. These are layered on 2 x 2 1/4 pieces of Flirty Flamingo cardstock and adhered to the pull tab with sticky strip. Attach the sticky strip against the folded edge.

Adhere pull tab to a 1 x 4 1/4 strip with Tear & Tape. Attach Tear & Tape to the ends of the strip and center on the card front.

Fold a piece of 5″ ribbon through the tab for to pull the waterfall. These little piggies are so stinkin’ cute! I stamped the front of my envelope to match and used the same DSP on the flap. Fun and Done!

K is for Kite Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series.  Today I have a fun fold Kite card for you. This would be a great kids card.  I remember when my daughter was turning 3 we had a Winnie the Pooh birthday party.  We made kite shaped invitations and delivered them to her friends. This would make a cute invitation or birthday card.  This card reminds me of my son, he LOVED dinosaurs!

I admit I had no idea what I was going to do for a fun fold for K.  I was thrilled when I found this tutorial by Brenda Quintana (QbeesQuest.com). I followed her tutorial and put it together in no time!

Kite Card Tutorial


Step One

1. Start with a piece of card stock 10” x 4”. On the long side, score at 5”.


Step Two

2. On BOTH long sides, make a mark on the edge at 3” and 7”.


Step Three

3. On BOTH short sides, make a mark on the edge at 2”.


Step Four

4. Score from the 3” mark on one long side to the 7” mark on the other side. This will be a diagonal score, which runs across the 5” score line. Hint: I darkened the groove of my 6” score line with a permanent black fine tip Sharpie marker. This line makes it easier to align points for diagonal scoring.


Step Five

5. Score from the opposite 3” mark to the other 7” mark. You should now have score lines in the shape of an ‘X’ that cross the 5” score line in the center.


Step Six

6. Using a cutter or scissors, cut off the four corners of the card stock from the 3” marks on the long sides to the 2” marks on the short sides.


Step Seven

7. Fold the card in half on the 5” score line.


Step Eight

8. Tuck in the corner of the card along the score lines.


Step Nine

9. Tuck in the other corner.


Step Ten

10. Decorate card as desired.

I used Emerald Envy cardstock for my card base and the DSP is from the new catalog (available June 1), called Pick a Pattern.  (I used the flower print from this paper pack on yesterday’s Joy Fold Card. ) There is a wide variety of patterns in this paper pack.

DSP Pick a Pattern

 I cut the DSP 4 3/4 x 3 3/4 and scored it at 1 7/8 on each side.  

 

Then I cut the 4 corners off from where the score lines meet the edge to where the other score line meets the edge.  I cut along the score lines and adhered the pieces to the front of the card.

 

I did the same for my Whisper White piece on the inside except I didn’t cut it apart.  I stamped my sentiment from the Lift Me Up Stamp Set with Emerald Envy Ink and stamped the clouds in Soft Sky. I attached a piece of Emerald Envy ribbon with a glue dot on the inside then adhered my sentiment layer on top.

 

I couldn’t help but sing “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” from Mary Poppins as I was making this card! This would this be a fun card to give with a new kite for a kids birthday party or anytime. You could make a custom envelope or it fits in a note card envelope.

J is for Joy Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series.  Today I have a Joy fold card for you. The joy fold is basically a card within a card.  It is all about the layers and a fun focal point.  This Little Piggy is the most adorable stamp set!  It will be available June 1st.  I’ve been waiting for her big debut until it was closer to when you could order…I didn’t want to tease you any longer than necessary.  I couldn’t resist giving her center stage on my card today.

Stampin Up This Little Piggy fun fold card idea - Jeanie Stark StampinUp

Isn’t she stinkin’ cute?! I used my aqua painter to bring her to life.  I gave my Shimmery White cardstock a quick wash with Soft Sky then I stamped Little Piggy with Basic Black ink. I used Flirty Flamingo and Sahara Sand inks with the aqua painter.  It was so fast & easy…just a quick wash with the brush.  No need to overthink it…she’s a pig…she likes to be dirty and handles imperfection with pride! She has several friends in her stamp set too!

I have lots of photos and measurements for you today so you can make one of these on your own.  The card base is Sahara Sand cut at 8 1/2 x 4 1/4 and scored at 5 1/2. Now let’s start layering…

The Flirty Flamingo Layer measures 4 x 5 1/4.  The Polka Dot pattern is from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack (retiring) but you could easily use the same patterned paper as the front.  This layer measures 3 3/4 x 5.  Now for the front layers…

Fun Fold card idea - for ideas and inspiration visit juststampin.com Jeanie Stark StampinUp The Flirty Flamingo layer measures 2 3/4 x 4.  The DSP is from the new Pick a Pattern Designer Series Paper. It measures 2 1/2 x 3 3/4.  There are many fun patterns in this pack.

The Little Piggy sits on a Sahara Sand card base measuring 8 x 3 and scored at 4.  The Flirty Flamingo layer measures 2 3/4 x 3 3/4 and my Shimmery White layer measures 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. I adhered this inside the card making sure to center it.

The inside layers for this are Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White and are the same measurements as the front. I stamped the sentiment in Basic Black.
