Love and Affection Double Z-Fold Card

Remember the Double-Z Fold card we made back on one of my previous posts found HERE? I wanted to make one with the set 'Love and Affection' using the coordinating Designer Series Paper.
I love the clean look of this card. Simple yet elegant, don't you think?

3D Thursday - Card in a Box

My uncle in Australia is turning 70 towards the end of the month so I wanted to make him a cool card because 70, that's a big deal! Sadly if I was to mail it yesterday, I'm not sure it would get to him in time. Better late than never they say.

I found my old tutorial back from a couple years ago HERE

Obviously I wanted to make it look somewhat manly, although I do admit using some 'Wink of Stella' glitter on the balloons. The Designer Series Paper is from the 'Have a Cuppa' paper stack. Other colours used were Whisper White, Basic Grey and Bermuda Bay.

The products I used are listed below. Click on an image to be taken directly to my Online store for ordering.

Off to the Post Office I go to give this guy wings. Happy 70th Birthday Uncle Barry.

NEW Catalog Sneak Peek #4 - Love and Affection

One thing I love about Stampin' Up! is the ease of making a card and getting things to go together. Ink pads, markers and cardstock all come in the same colours! Boy. That makes life easier. And then, once in a while you get a Stamp Set that has matching Designer Series Paper AND Washi Tape. 
This is the case with this wonderful set called 'Love and Affection' which will be available in the NEW Catalog June 1st.

NEW Catalog Sneak Peek #2 - Painter's Palette

I love this set, however I admit that it took some playing around until I made a card that I was truly happy with. It happens sometimes. Somedays creativity and inspiration overflows and other days.... Nothing. Ha. I am happy with this one though. I think the side step card helps to really show off the easel.
For this card I teamed up NEW set 'Painter's Palette' with 'Work of Art' featuring NEW In Color 'Sweet Sugarplum'.

NEW Catalog Sneak Peek #1 - Perfectly Wrapped

I love many things about being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator but being able to pre-order new product has got to be one of my favourites.
Here are a couple cards from the new set 'Perfectly Wrapped'. And yes! Both cards feature NEW In Colours. Pretty aren't they? The NEW Catalog launches June 1st.

Z Fold Card with a Floating Strip

How fun is this fold?! I love the floating strip. It just adds a little extra. 
It's also a quick and simple fold and you can make the card as simple or intricate as you like.
Today I was playing around with the set 'A Grateful Bunch'. I thought these could make for some good Mother's Day cards. Pssst. It's Mother's Day next weekend.

To make this fold all you need is a card base. 11" X 4 1/4" scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".
Floating strip is 11" x 1' scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".
The card folds flat and fits perfectly into a size A2 envelope, Easy right?!
