Fun Fold Cards with 2024-26 Colors & Kit Special

I’m absolutely in love with Stampin’ Up!’s new 2024-26 In Color Collection! These trending colors debuted in the 2024-25 Annual Catalog and in the Online Store on May 1st. But many of us demonstrators/reps for the company were able to get our hands on these colors much earlier. So I showed them off in a Live video on March 19th. Did you view it? Click here (or below) to see that color reveal and color comparison presentation.

To make this month of May even more exciting for those wanting to add these new In Color products to their collection, Stampin’ Up! is currently offering $82 worth of these 2024-26 In Color products (the ink pads, markers, assorted cardstock, and designer paper) for FREE with the purchase of the Starter Kit. Purchasing the Starter Kit gets you on the demonstrator side of things. And then after getting the kit, you could choose to sell Stampin’ Up! products to others or not worry about any of that and just enjoy being a discount shopper. You would also be a part of my exclusive Stampers With ART Community.

So today I thought I’d show you some fun fold cards featuring these products paired with the new Friends For Life Bundle. You can make versions of these cards with any colors or with other stamps and dies. But I wanted to feature these new colors AND I chose this bundle because is has a variety of sentiments and the leaf imagery coordinates great with one of the designer paper patterns.

I also thought I’d show off one of my favorite cards I received in a recent swap. This card (designed by fellow demonstrator, Virginie Julien) features all these new colors in a beautiful watercolor design. (She is planning to share how to make her card soon…possibly even this Wednesday! Here is a link to her Facebook page. And here is a link to her YouTube channel.)

I’ve inserted a link to my how-to video which is happening OR has happened (depending on when you are reading this) at 11 AM Central Time. Be sure to watch the video to get directions, tips, and tricks (or you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog post), scroll through the close-up photos that follow, check out the measurements & 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 what I demonstrated. (Please subscribe to my YouTube channel or tune into my events on my Facebook Page so you can get updates when I share and go live). A big thank you to Tricia and Lisa for taking extra time this weekend to help me as my moderators!

Country Woods Birdhouse Accordion Card Converted to Scrapbook Page Layout

I mentioned in my May 8th Live after demonstrating my Country Woods Birdhouse Mini Accordion Card for all of you that I was going to convert the card I demonstrated into a scrapbook page layout. This was the original card…

Visit my 5/8/24 blog post for details on making this adorable Mini Accordion Birdhouse Card card featuring the Country Woods suite, AND see other great ideas with this suite shared by our creative All Star group by following our hop! - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

And here is the result! Yay!

Page making can be done with similar tips, tricks, and techniques as card making. Visit my 5/17/24 blog post to see how I converted my Mini Accordion Birdhouse Card card featuring the Country Woods suite into a 12x12 scrapbook page layout. - Stampin’ Up!® - Stamp Your Art Out! www.stampyourartout.com

Products I used… See below for a complete list of products linked to where you can find them in my online store. These are the same products used on my card that I shared on 5/8/24 with the addition of Blending Brushes, a few more ink pad colors, and some 12×12 cardstock (Early Espresso 12×12 from the Neutrals pack and Wood Textured Specialty Paper).

Additional Measurements (these are in addition to those to make the card I shared on 5/8/24)…

  • Early Espresso Cardstock
    • (6) 4-1/8” x 5-1/2”
    • A portion of a sheet of 12″ x 12″ for cutting two 1-1/4″ wide diagonal strips
  • Wood Textured Specialty Paper
    • 12” x 12”
  • Country Woods Designer Paper (light wood)
    • 12” x 12″
  • Country Woods Designer Paper (colored wood)
    • A portion of a sheet of 12″ x 12″ for cutting two 1″ wide diagonal strips
  • Basic White Cardstock
    • Scraps for die-cutting all five flowers
    • Scrap for stamping and die-cutting the bird
  • Summer Splash Cardstock
    • Scraps for die-cutting all the single and double leaves twice

The slightly “tilted” colored wood plank strips are made by cutting diagonally from the 12×12 papers. Cutting straight strips and then angling on the page wouldn’t give you enough length to reach the top and bottom edges of the base layer completely.

To cut the strips as I did position the paper/cardstock in the trimmer so the top and bottom cuts are angled with a 1/2″ difference. (This photo shows my initial angled cuts.) Then just make sure the next cut to form the strip is parallel to the angled first cut.

I did adjust the first two birdhouse layers of the card to make them fit better on the left page…I brought them closer to each other. I added a bird (and the outline image of the house when I demonstrated this card in my Live) to the third one. And I added some color (Pool Party, Lemon Lolly & Petal Pink ink) behind the first two houses with Blending Brushes.

Extra flowers, leaves & Brushed Brass Butterflies embellish the rest of the page layout.
