3 Cards Using Butterfly Fold-It Die from The Stamps of Life

Today on my blog I am sharing three cards that I made using the Butterfly Fold-It die set from The Stamps of Life. For the first card, I used the die set to make a fold-it card. For the second card, I used the die set to incorporate the butterfly on the front of the card. For the third card, I used the butterfly on the inside of the card. I also have a video tutorial for the cardmaking process below.

Handmade Mini Album Tutorial Using Graphic 45 Album Cover

Today on my blog is a handmade album that I made for my niece who is getting married. I have been wanting to dive into making an album as I have never made one from scratch. I have watched numerous YouTube videos on how to make the chipboard album, but wanted to start with something much simpler. Therefore, I decided to purchase a chipboard album that was already made. All I had to do was pick out some pretty paper, cut, and adhere the paper and embellishments. Therefore, if you are like me and want to make an album that is EASY, below is a YouTube tutorial on how I made this album.

Supplies:

Cardstock Measurements:

Front Cover: Pink and Cream Pattern Paper 5 3/4″ x 7 1/2″, Diamond Pattern Paper 2″ x 7 1/4″, Black card stock 2 1/4″ x 7 1/2″

Back Cover: Pattern Paper 5 3/4″ x 7 1/2″

Inside Front Cover: 7 3/4″ x 5 3/4″
Inside Back Cover: 7 3/4″ x 5 3/4″

24 full pages: Patterned paper cut to 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″ (Can use 24 pieces of patterned paper or you can mix patterned paper and solid card stock to make 24 pieces all cut to 5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″).  Optional: If you want to have some pages with pockets on the left or right side, then cut a piece of patterned paper to 4 3/4″ x 7 1/4″ and another piece to 1 1/2″ x 7 1/4″ inches for the pocket. Decide how many of these pocket pages you want to have.

12 pieces to cover the pockets:  2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″

12 pieces to cover the tops of the pages that are above the pockets: 4 1/4″ x 5 1/4″

Tags:  3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ and round corners

Photo mats: Black card stock cut to 3 1/4″ x 8 1/2 and then fold in half. Cut patterned paper 3″ x 4″ and adhere to black card stock.

Love Heart Fold-It

 

heart fold it front finalHello!

On my blog today is another Valentine’s Day card using The Stamps of Life products. I made this card using the Sizzix Scallop Heart Fold-it and cranberry card stock. First, I die cut the heart fold-it card base. Next, I die cut the large solid heart (the one that shows as the watercolored background) using the Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Smooth Paper Pad and then used Spectrum Sparkle pens (Moonstone, Cosmos, and Rose Quartz) to watercolor the background using the same watercoloring technique that I used in my Love Heart Card. I cut the top layering piece of the heart out of the same cranberry card stock that I used for the card base. Before die cutting. I put double sided adhesive on the back of the card stock before running it through the die cut machine. This helped tremendously when adhering the piece to the front of the card.

To create the love sentiment, I used the Moonlight Spectrum Sparkle pen to watercolor a piece of the Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper and then die cut the word “Love” using the Love Statement Set. I used the same Cranberry card stock for the shadow layer.

Using a yellow ribbon from my stash, I tied a bow on the side of the heart.

For the inside of the card, I used the large solid heart die from the Sizzix Scallop Heart Fold-it to die cut a heart using white card stock and then adhered it to the inside of the card. Using the Onyx Black Versa Fine ink pad, I stamped the sentiment from the Love Statement Set.

Love Heart Card

Love Card with Heart Final

Hello!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day or just to say “I love you,” this card is so beautiful with its vibrant colors.

First, I die cut the heart shape from the heart die in the Heart Background – Limited Edition die set from The Stamps of Life. I die cut it using Strathmore 300 Series Bristol Smooth Paper Pad.

Step 1

Next, I water colored the heart using Spectrum Sparkle markers. The colors I used were solar red, emerald green, and blue topaz. After I put some color down, I used a paint brush with a small amount of water to spread the color on the heart.

Step 2

Next, I used the center heart die cut and layered it inside of the big heart and die cut it onto white card stock. Before die cutting, I put double-sided adhesive on the opposite side of the card stock. This made it easier to adhere cut piece in the next step.

Step 4

Next, I peeled the heart away from the adhesive and adhered it onto the colored heart.

Using the same water color method as described above, I colored with the solar red Spectrum Sparkle marker onto the Bristol Smooth paper and spread the color onto the paper using a water brush. Next, I die cut the shadow layer of the Love die from the Love Statement Set from The Stamps of Life.

Next, I used the Love word die and die cut using white card stock. Before die cutting, I put double-sided adhesive onto the back of the white card stock which made it easier to adhere to the shadow layer. (Note: In case you are wondering, the shadow layer of the Love die cut in the picture below is a slightly darker pink than the one on the finished card because I actually die cut the Love piece twice to create two identical pieces for two cards. It shows darker here because for this die cut, I applied more ink onto the paper.)

Using Ocean card stock from The Stamps of Life, I cut an A2 size card base. Next, using the Hooray patterned paper pad from The Stamps of Life, I die cut a piece of patterned paper using the large stitched rectangle die.

Step 3

I adhered the stitched rectangle piece of patterned paper to the front of the card base. Next, I adhered the heart on top of the rectangle piece and then I adhered the Love statement to the bottom right corner and ended with a pink bow at the top of the card.

 

Love Card with Heart Final

 

For the inside of the card, I die cut a large stitched rectangle from Candy card stock and stamped the sentiment from the Love Statement Set.
