Folding Cards

Pop of Petals Wreath Panel Card

Often I get asked where I get my inspiration from.  There are several answers to that question.  However for today's Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card, the inspiration came directly from Stampin' Up!. 

Four times a year, Stampin' Up! demonstrators receive a Stampin' Success magazine filled with creative and business inspiration.  I fold over the corners of the pages that inspire me and CASE those projects for my classes and clubs.  Why not, right?   I appreciate that Stampin' Up! provides samples for us to copy.  Just a little something to make my "job" easier.

Stampin' Up!  Pop of Petals panel card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals #birthdaycards

Today's card is an example of a Stampin' Success project, that I used for my Stamping Club Class last month.  I left most everything the same with the exception of the greeting.  Other changes I made,  the white piece opens (like a "mini card"),  with a 1/4 sheet card base panel.   (Yes - I like panel cards!)

How'd She DO That? tips for Pop of Petals Wreath Panel card:

  • Stamps:  Pop of Petals, Itty Bitty Birthdays
  • Paper:
    • Soft Sea Foam (4-1/4 x 5-1/2" card base and 5/8" x 4" sentiment)
    • Whisper White (3-1/2" x 5-1/2" score at 4-1/4", and 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" for border punch)
    • Petal Pink (scraps for flowers)
  • Ink:  Soft Sea Foam, Mossy Meadow, Petal Pink
  • Other:  4-Petal Flower Punch, 2-1/4" Circle Punch (for wreath template),  Gold Faceted Gems, Linen Thread, Glue Dots, & Stampin' Dimensionals

Tips for creating a wreath using Pop of Petals stamp set from Stampin' up! - by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #popofpetals

DOstamping Tips:

  1. On 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of Soft Sea Foam - stamp "flower group" with same ink in upper left and lower right corners
  2. Fold 3-1/2" x 8-1/2" Whisper White cardstock in half (to create a mini card)
  3. Creating the stamped wreath:
    • Cut a circle template with 2-1/4" Circle Punch. 
    • Place on front of folded "mini card" and use a pencil to draw around the circle.  
    • Stamp leaf image around circle with Mossy Meadow ink (the line will be the center of the leaf).  Stamp one leaf, then before reinking, stamp again (moving around the circle). 
    • Repeat until the wreath is complete.
  4. Cut 1-1/2" x 4-1/2" strip of Whisper White with Decorative Ribbon Border Punch and adhere to back of folded white piece.  Then adhere stamped mini card to stamped Soft Sea Foam panel.
  5. Stamp greeting on 4" x 5-/8" strip (towards right edge), and adhere over wreath.
  6. Stamp (3) flowers on Petal Pink scrap with Petal Pink ink.  Cut out with Four-Petal Flower Punch.  Adhere to card with Glue Dots.  Attach Gold Faceted Gems to flower centers.
  7. Tie (2) 10" lengths of twine in a bow, adhere with a Glue Dot

Fun Fold with my Favorite Rewards Set: Soft Spring

Have you checked out the new Stampin' Rewards/Host Sets for this year?  They are fabulous and it's a little hard to pick my favorite.  Though, I kept coming back to the Soft Spring stamp set (149429).

Check out the new Stampin' Rewards set, Soft Spring, along with Garden Lane Designer Series Paper.  From Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #thinkingofyou

Don't you just love the signs of spring when plants push make their way through the cold earth and their beautiful flowers bloom? 

Right now my Irises and Mini Irises are actually started to fade.  But they really made me smile while they were blooming.  The Soft Spring Rewards Stamp Set floral images reminds of those days of spring.

DOstamping Tips:

    • Flowers = Balmy Blue (stamp off first)
    • Brush on Clear Wink of Stella over flowers - it will also move the color around a little.
  • For dragonfly:  stamp in Pretty Peacock, then brush on Clear Wink of Stella to move color around a little.

  • Coordinating colors: Garden Green, Mint Macaron, Mossy Meadow, Pear Pizzazz, Soft Sea Foam, Whisper White
  • At first glance, you might not think any other colors would coordinate very well.  But with a closer look, I found Pretty Peacock and Balmy Blue coordinated nicely.
  • In fact, I found a couple patterns that worked nicely with that color combo

Stamping with the STARS #316: Above The Clouds Bridge Fun Fold Card

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts316.  Today we're showcasing Bridge Fun Fold Cards. 

Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamperSTARS #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold


Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

Bridge cards are a fun fold style of card, named for the piece that "bridges the two sides together.  It's surprisingly easy to make and fun to decorate.

How'd She DO That? Above the Clouds Bridge card:

  • Bundle:  Above the Clouds Bundle (save 10% on stamp set and matching Hot Air Balloon Punch),
  • Paper:
    • Whisper White Thick (4-1/4" x 8" card base, score at  1-1/4" & 2-1/2" from each end)
    • Whisper White Thick (scraps for punching)
    • Coastal Cabana (5-1/2" x 1-1/4")
    • Designer Series Paper ( 1-1/8"  x 4-1/4 strips - two of blue and two of "colored stripes", 5-1/2" x 1-1/8")  )
  • Ink: Coastal Cabana, Calypso Coral, Pacific Point, Basic Gray
  • Other:  1-1/2" Circle Punch, SNAIL, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals and Tear & Tape.

Bridge Fun Fold card using Stampin' Up! Above the Clouds Bundle.  Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the Stars #DOswts316 #dostamping #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #funfold

DOstamping Tips:

  • Start with the card base (largest piece).  Complete the scoring, folding, stamping and decorating.
  • Then create and decorate the "bridge" piece.
  • Note:  For the "balloons solid shape" - stamp off the Coastal Cabana balloon image once.  Stamp-off the Calypso Coral balloon twice.
  • I recommend using Tear & Tape to adhere the "bridge" to the card base  (on the end panels only).
  • To see a video demonstration of  making a Bridge Fun Fold card, be sure to check out my How'd She DO That? video from last year.

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Day 2: #DOswts314 Collar Fold

The DOstamperSTARS are excited to bring you another Inspiration Hop #DOswts314.  This week we're showcasing Collar Fun Fold cards! 

Stamping with the STARS Collar Fun Fold inspiration hop #DOswts314 #dostamperstars #papercrafting #stamping #cardmaking #funfolds Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

I knew right away I would be using the Everything is Rosy Product Medley for today's challenge. 

Immediately I was drawn to the light pink paper with small flower bunches.  It reminded of the dresses I used to put my daughters in when they were little.  I thought it might be fun to decorate the collar area to give the impression of a dress.

How'd She DO That? Everything is Rosy Collar Fun Fold card:

  • Product Medley: Everything is Rosy (stamp set, dies, DSP, mirror embellishments)
  • Paper:
    • Balmy Blue (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
    • Whisper White (scraps for stamping & die cutting)
    • Designer Series Paper (4" x 5-1/4")
  • Ink: Night of Navy, Melon  Mambo
  • Other:  Big Shot, Pearlized Doilies & Stampin' Dimensionals

Everything is Rosy Product Medley Collar Fun Fold card shared by Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup  #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting, #DOswts314 #funfold #dostamperstars

Collar Fun Fold Tips:

  • At the middle of a long edge of 4" x 5-1/4" DSP, use scissors to cut in towards center about 2"  (experiment on scrap paper as needed)
  • Fold each side away from the cut edge.  I kept about a 3/4" edge at the top of each side (again, experiment as needed)
  • Adhere to folded card base, and stamp greeting.
  • Cut a doily in half, adhere under each "flap".  Then adhere each flap down with a Stampin' Dimensional.
  • Decorate with flower die cuts

DOstamping Tips:

  • On Whisper White cardstock, stamp large flower with Melon Mambo and large leaf with Night of Navy.
  • Ink smaller flower with Melon Mambo, stamp off on scratch paper, then onto Whisper White.  Repeat.  Stamp small dots with Night of Night.
  • Die cut all images with matching shapes.  
  • Arrange around collar and adhere with Stampin' Dimensionals and glue dots.
  • Finish off with mirror embellishment

I had so much fun with the Collar Fun Fold.  I know I'll be trying it again.  Have fun creating your own Collar Fun Fold cards and playing with the Everything is Rosy Product Medley!

Enjoy~Dawn O

    • This way each color layer is completely dry before another layer of color. 
    • Start with the lightest and worked up to the darkest color.
  • For Double Z card:
    • Score and fold Mango Melody card base, and then adhere Designer Series Paper (as shown)
    • Score and fold Real Red strip.  Adhere smallest area of the strip to the right edge of the card. 
    • Fold strip and card closed at the same time, and then adhere left edge of strip to left edge of card.

Chevron Fold Technique using Stampin' Up! Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper from Dawn Olchefske #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting #chevronfolding #birthdaycards

I'm using the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper The minute I saw the paper, I was drawn to the butterfly and stitched pattern.  It works perfectly for today's Chevron Fold.

How'd She DO That? measurements for Needlepoint Nook Chevron card:

  • Night of Navy (8-1/2" x 5-1/2" card base) 
  • Whisper White (5-1/4"  x  3-3/4")
  • Balmy Blue (5-1/4" x 4")
  • Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper (five of 1" x 2-1/2")

DOstamping Chevron Folding Tips

  • Cut 5 pieces of Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper to 1" x 2-1/2"
  • For 3 pieces, fold left corner over, squaring it off with the opposite edge.  Turn and repeat on the other end.
  • For 2 pieces, fold right corners over
  • Arrange pieces on a panel that is 5-1/4" long by whatever width you desire.  Start with a left corner fold, then alternate every other piece.
  • Once satisfied with the layout, adhere in place.

As you can see, Chevron Folding is not only fun, but easy!  Be sure to give it a try!  

And...if you like this cute butterfly stitched pattern from the Needlepoint Nook Designer Series Paper, you'll want to add it to your shopping bag.

Enjoy~Dawn O

Stamping With The Stars Inspiration Hop: Pop up Diorama Fun Fold cards

I've heard from many of you that you've been missing the DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenges.  We took a break from them during the holidays.  Then decided we wanted to change it up. 

Stamping with the STARS inspiration hop #dostamperstars #stampinup #dostamping

I'm excited to introduce...Stamping with the STARS!   

We'll now be sharing inspiration on Saturdays, twice a month.   Not only will you be able to see creations shared on our inspiration hops, but you will also be able to see inspiration shared on Facebook via hashtags.  This week's hash tag is #DOswts308.  

NOTE:  as this is the first time we've added Facebook to our sharing, it may take a couple months to get up and running on that platform (as more STARS join in).  But we're excited to give you another option to see our creations!

This week we're sharing ideas made using the Pop-up Diorama Fun Fold card!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

There are lots of tutorials out there with different measurements.  I used the Splitcoaststampers Tutorial, that was done by my friend, Julie Davison.  See measurements, scoring and tips below.

How'd She DO That? tips for Sweetest Thing card:

  • Stamps:  Sweetest Thing

    • Gorgeous Grape (10-1/2" x 5-1/2" - score at 3-1/2, 6-1/2, 7" and 10") 
    • Gorgeous Grape (1/2" x 3-1/4", 1/2" x 2-3/4")
    • Whisper White (2-3/4" x 5-1/4", scraps for labels
    • How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper (5-1/4" x 6-1/2", 2-3/4" x 1", and scraps for die cutting jars)

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

DOstamping Tips:

  • Score card, then fold on all score lines.  Then fold flat, it into thirds, to make sure everything lines up.   
  • Then burnish the edges with a Bone Folder.
  • Before adhering together, cut opening with a punch or die shape.  (this is important to do in the right order...how do I know?  ha!)
  • To adhere, fold it flat again, into thirds, allowing the adhesive to naturally adhere where it needs to go.  
  • Burnish the adhesive area, then open it up and voila!

Did you know?

  • Some of the shapes on the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper match the shape of the coordinating Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies.
  • How sweet!!

Stampin' Up! Sweetest Thing Pop Up Diorama Card by Dawn Olchefske for Stamping with the STARS #dostamping #howdshedothat #stampinup #handmade #cardmaking #stamping #papercrafting  #DOswts308 #funfold  #birthdaycards

  • When you use a darker color for your card, you'll want to add a white layer to the left inside panel. 
  • Then there will be a place to sign your card.

I had SO much fun putting this card together.  The Pop-Up Diorama card is not only a fun fold, but it's an easy fold!  Give it a try...I think you'll like it.

In addition, the How Sweet It Is Suite of products was also fun to play with.   Add it to your shopping bag today!  

Enjoy~Dawn O
