Welcome to our All Star Tutorial group blog hop! Did you get your hands on this month’s set of tutorials featuring the Peony Garden Suite?! These tutorials are designed by twelve Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world. They are exclusive to those who earn them or purchase them. And they are complete with photos, video directions, supply lists and measurements in both imperial and metric.
And here is a larger peek of the project tutorial I contributed. It’s a fun fold card.
Our hop today will give you MORE ideas than what we are offering in our bundle. See what I have to share. Then to follow the hop and see other creative project ideas featuring the Peony Garden Suite, simply scroll down and click on the names of other hop participants in our tutorial team. (If you are receiving this blog post by email, click HERE to see links and follow the hop.)
My project idea that I’m sharing today is a Center Step fun-fold card. I shared how to make a vertical/portrait version of this fold with my Box of Sunshine Paper Pumpkin kit on June 20th. And today I’m sharing how to make a horizontal/landscape version with several products from this beautiful Peony Garden Suite: Prized Peony Stamp Set, Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, Elegant Faceted Gems, and Square Vellum Doilies.
The directions are best explained in a video. So I shared the details during my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday (yesterday). I uploaded the recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) and shared it here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video by clicking here (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, close-up photos, and a product list for the cards I demonstrated and shared.
Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store.
- Night of Navy Cardstock
- 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” scored according to the directions in the video
- Whisper White Cardstock
- 3-1/8” x 3-5/8” (two pieces)
- Granny Apple Green Cardstock
- 3-1/4” x 3-3/4” (two pieces)
- Scrap for punching 1-1/2” Circle
- Silver Foil Sheets
- ¾” x 3” (two pieces)
Here is the one I demonstrated. This embossing folder is so amazing! Right? And I love the look of the Elegant Faceted Gems on these cards. This first one includes the clear gems.
This second one includes the pink gems with a flower colored in with the Petal Pink and Calypso Coral Blends Markers.
Isn’t the Champagne Foil amazing?
And then I used the Flirty Flamingo Blends and white gems on this last one.
I’l love to hear which color combo is YOUR favorite.
I hope you enjoyed this fun fold card idea and are now inspired to give it a go!
We are so excited to share our tutorial with you! And we thank you for visiting our blog hop!
