*Exclusivity to the video on YouTube will be 6 weeks, I then reserve the right to change to a public video. This will allow me to grow my YouTube online presence.

*I reserve the right to substitute items if absolutely necessary. This would be due to a shortage of items from Stampin’ Up!

*Per Stampin’ Up! Compliance I am unable to stamp and images in your kits. So Stamp Sets must be purchased if you wish to create your cards exactly like mine. Of course many times you can easily substitute your own stamps and inks etc. So feel free to purchase a smaller priced class or just PDF & Card Kits.

*For the Blueberry card. You will not be able to create this card without purchasing the FULL bundle due to the stamp set is a free Sale A Bration item. If you purchase a smaller priced option I can substitute the papers to make it work with the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.

Thank you for considering my classes. I just want to offer creativity even during the Pandemic. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. melaniestamps@yahoo.com I will be happy to assist you.

Happy Stampin’

Happy New Years & Best Wishes To All!

 

Today begins a fresh chapter in our lives. A New Year and hopefully one filled with love, creativity, and a great amount of healing for our country. I am also starting a new chapter of my life by offering online classes. My first class will debut NEXT WEEK so make sure to sign up to receiving email updates so you do not miss that big announcement. I am also going to begin each month off with a hostess code. A hostess code allows me to earn a small amount of Stampin’ Rewards. This does not cost you anything so not to worry. It just allows me to earn a little extra to help cover the cost of paper or embellishments. If your order is over $150 please do not use the hostess code as you will qualify yourself for the Stampin’ Rewards.

JAN 2021 Hostess Code IS: UQZ6PQ7M

Now for today’s project. It is a card that just kind of fell together. A happy accident I guess you can say. I am using the BRAND NEW Fine Art Floral Designer series paper. That along with some Calypso Coral and Very Vanilla card stocks and the Stitched so Sweetly Die set (A Must Have). Lets take a look….

The frame was made from an embossed ( Painted Texture 3D embossing folder) piece of Very Vanilla card stock and is elevated using lots of Stampin’ Dimensionals to give it a beautiful raised look.

As you can see above, it does not take much else to give this card it’s beauty. I have simply added a sponged foliage leaves from the “A Touch of ink” FREE Sale A Bration item. This double stamp set will be FREE with a $100 during Sale A Bration which begins January 5th So check back then for the kick off of this amazing 2 month Sale!!!!

Last but not least….ohhhh my goodnesssssss are these little Ladybug Trinkets not the most adorable thing ever? QUICK TIP: they hook perfectly to your project with one mini glue dot so make sure to add those to your order if you don’t already have them. These are going to be available in the NEW Spring Mini Catalog which also kicks off January 5th. If you have not received a copy of the two new catalogs please email me at melaniestamps@yahoo.com with your name and address. I will send one out to you ASAP!

As always thank you for stopping by. I am so excited about the upcoming two months. I will have two class offerings, numerous YouTube videos, along with at least 2 posts a week here on my blog. So if you are not already registered I would be honored to serve you. Simply pop your email into the sidebar of the website here. Thank you so much for your support and Happy 2021 my friends!!!!!!

Fun Fold Card ~ Birthday Gift Card Holder

___________________________________________

Welcome back for my third simple fold card this week. This card was saved for last in the series because it is a little bit more detailed than the previous two. I hope I can explain this project and that you will be able to create your own.

This card has two basic folds. The top “yellow” panel folds up and the “bottom” panel folds down. Then when both are opened it reveals a pocked which holds a gift card.

Cutting & Scoring Measurements:

Base Card 8 1/4″ x4 1/4″ ~ Scored at 2 3/4″ ~ Real Red

Inner Solid Card Stock 8 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ ~ Scored at 4 1/4″ ~ Daffodil Delight

Designer Series Paper  5 1/4″ x4″ ~ Red & White Patterned Paper

Designer Series Paper 2 1/2 x 4″ ~ Striped Patterned Paper

Designer Series Paper ~ 3″ x 4″ ~ Blue Polka Dot Paper

 

This photo above shows the top flapped lifted up (Daffodil Delight). This reveals the pocket for the gift card. It slides in where the top of the blue paper touches the yellow paper. The blue Polka Dot paper is the actual pocket. This was really hard to photograph so if you have questions please let me know

CAS Wednesday ~ Magical Mermaid!


Want to get a card complete super quick? Then check in with me each Wednesday (Hump day) for a quick and easy card that can be made in moments. We all have those days we are busy in yet we so want to be creative too. Mid week here at Melanie Stamps is the place to be. Make sure to add your email address in along the side bar so you will get a mid week reminder when the new posts are published!

This card was designed and shared with me by Michelle T. who is also a Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator. I love how she used the designer series paper to really bring this card alive. The glimmer paper is also part of this suite along with the glitter washi tape which I shared with you on Monday. Check out the tiny sea horse she stamped in the bottom right corner… So sweet! She even added a little Wink of Stella to the mermaids tail after coloring with her markers. Thank you for sharing this card with all of us Michelle.

 

On Friday I will be sharing a unique shaped card with all of you. See you then! Melanie
