Welcome to the March 2020 Maui Achievers Blog Hop!

Maui Achievers Blog Hop! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Follow along and check out all the other blogs in the hop (click on the names of the participants in the list below my signature) so you can see some fabulous cards and projects created by other demonstrators who also earned the Stampin’ Up!® Maui incentive trip coming up in July of 2020 – hopefully…depending on COVID-19. (If you are receiving this blog post by email, click HERE to see the hop.)

I have some twisted gatefold cards to share today that were my Stampers With ART team make-n-takes last month. They feature the Under My Umbrella Stamp Set and Umbrella Builder Punch. One is made with the Lily Impressions Designer Paper (a free Sale-a-Bration pick that is still available hopefully through the end of March), and one is made with the Follow Your Art Designer Paper. Both of these papers look awesome with the umbrella images.

Measurements…

  • Whisper White Cardstock: 4-1/4” x 7-1/2” scored parallel to short end at 2-1/2” and 5” then diagonally scored on the outside two panels and scraps as shown… for stamping and punching umbrella top, umbrella handle and flower bunch
  • Coastal Cabana Cardstock: Scrap for punching 2″ Circle
  • Silver Foil Sheet: Scrap for punching Starburst
  • Follow Your Art Designer Paper: Four pieces that are 2-1/4” x 4”

Directions

  • Stamp, color and punch umbrella top. Stamp and punch handle. Stamp, color and fussy-cut flower bunch.
  • Stamp raindrops on punched out Coastal Cabana circle, mount onto the Silver Foil Starburst, add handle, then add the umbrella top with Dimensionals.
  • Cut the two colorful pieces of designer paper diagonally from upper left to lower right. Add to the outer two card base panels. Cut one light blue designer paper diagonally from upper right to lower left. Add to the diagonal sections that appear behind the front panels when the card is closed. Stamp sentiment on other light blue piece of designer paper, and add to the inside middle area of the card base.
  • Attach the flower bunch to the inside. Close the card and attach the umbrella layered piece with Dimensionals so it’s just attached to the left section. The umbrella will rotate a bit as the card opens and closes. So keep that in mind.

  • Silver Foil Sheet: Scrap for punching Starburst
  • Lily Impressions Designer Paper: Three pieces that are 2-1/4” x 4” (two printed with the small lilies and one Grapefruit Grove)…and scraps for punching 2″ Circle (Garden Green) and for stamping and cutting umbella top (Bermuda Bay)

Directions

  • On Whisper White Cardstock Scraps stamp and punch umbrella top and handle. Stamp, color and fussy-cut flower bunch.
  • Stamp umbrella top and cut it out. Layer onto the punched umbella top.
  • Layer the 2” designer paper circle onto the Silver Foil Starburst. Add handle. Then add the umbrella top and flower bunch with Dimensionals.
  • Cut the two lily printed pieces of designer paper diagonally from upper left to lower right. Add to the outer two card base panels. Cut Grapefruit Grove designer paper diagonally from upper right to lower left. Add to the diagonal sections that appear behind the front panels when the card is closed.
  • Stamp sentiment and smaller flower bunch on the inside middle area of the card base.
  • Close the card and attach the umbrella layered piece with Dimensionals so it’s just attached to the left section. The umbrella will rotate a bit as the card opens and closes. So keep that in mind.

 

I also have a video where I shared step-by-step how to make this type of fun-fold card. So if you’d like to watch that, click here.
In the video I mention that I should rework the measurements so that this card can fit into an A4 size envelope. But guess what?…Though these measurements were made for letter size envelopes, with a straight conversion to metric (if you wish) this card WILL fit into an A4 size envelope, too! Yay! So those of you outside the US, no need to make anything narrower or taller.

I hope you enjoyed what I shared today. Have fun on the hop! And enjoy seeing all those inspiring ideas made by fellow trip achievers!
