Welcome to June's Control Freak Blog Hop!! We're so excited to share our new catalog projects with you!
You may have started here or maybe you've arrived from Cindy's blog. Either way, click on the icon at the bottom of each post to see it all.
Both of my projects feature the new Varied Vases bundle; I think it's super fun and full of a variety of images to play with.
This first one was inspired by my friend Susie Wood; she made a fantastic card with this color combination and Vases bundle. I changed it up to be a unique fun fold card for my June Card Clubs.
The colors are Pineapple Punch with Black and White; a striking combo! Our new Pineapple Punch is a bright and happy yellow.
I'm not sure how I came up with this unique fold but it seems familiar ....maybe I've done it in the past?!! It has two flaps that open to reveal the inside; one folds to the side and one vertical. Interactive cards are just plain fun; for us to make and for the recipient!
I think the new Tulle polka dot ribbon coordinates beautifully with the In Color Designer Paper I used here.
I've created a quick video on how to make this card, along with a great tip for these stamps and Vases Builder punch. You can stamp once and punch once! I'll post it later this week so stop back in!
Here's a photo of how I lined up my stamps to match the punch.
Tip: Use your punch on a piece of card stock. Then lay that over your clear block. Position the stamps under the card stock, lining the punched areas up with the stamps. It might take a bit of adjusting but it works! (My stamps have been used all month in Black Memento ink so they're a bit stained now.)
- Pineapple Punch 4 1/4" X 5 1/2", 2 1/4" circle
- Black 3 1/4" X 11" scored at 5 1/2", Black square 2 3/8", 1" X 3 1/2" strip, scored at 1 1/2"
- White inside 2 3/4 X 5" plus 2" starburst circle punch & scraps for punched vases
- Designer paper 2 3/4" square
Here's another fun fold card. Can you tell I like to make them? In fact each month my card clubs make one fun fold card and I always share the how to video.
The back of this card is simply a quarter sheet or 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". It's the black piece that actually opens to reveal the inside greeting. I chose my color combination of Mango Melody, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo with Black and White from the new Garden Impressions designer paper stack. It pairs wonderfully with the Varied Vases bundle!
- Melon Mambo 4 1/4" X 5 1/4"
- Black 3" X 8 1/2", scored at 4 1/4"
- White inside and front 2 1/2" X 3 3/4" plus scraps for vases
- Mango Melody banner is 1 3/4" X 5 1/4" & front layer 2 5/8" X 3 7/8"
- Garden Impressions banners - 1"X 5"
