Special Delivery Corner Flip Card

Special Delivery Corner Flip Card

xDSC_3861

One die set, 5 different card designs…

I recently purchased the Circle Flip Die from Creek Bank Creations after watching a few of their videos on YouTube where the versatility of this die set was illustrated.  (Hard to believe I had never even heard of this company until recently!)  I own several flip dies from other companies, but what I like about this one is that the die to create the “flip” part of the card is a separate piece.  This allows you to place it wherever you want on a standard card base which is how it can be used to create a corner flip card as I did here.  I have several card variations made with this die set (including a traditional flip card) to share in the coming days.

In case anyone is interested, Creek Bank Creations is currently offering 15% off with coupon code RAINBOW, and shipping is free with $50 order.  (I believe this coupon is good until October 31, 2020.)

Here is a better photo of what the corner looks like:

I’ve made corner flip cards “from scratch” before, but using the dies from the Circle Flip Die set made the card base construction super easy!   Here is a video showing how to do it.

This cute baby image is a cling stamp from a set I’ve had for years.  I no longer have the original packaging, but I think it’s called “Baby” (#227909) by Recollections.  I stamped it on the white circle die cut with Gina K Designs Story Sky ink and colored the baby’s head with Copic marker E000.

All of the patterned paper came from the 6×6 “Special Delivery” paper pad by pebbles.  In addition to using it for the decorative panels, I also stamped the image again on a scrap, fussy cut the blanket and bow, and paper pieced it back onto the white panel which tied the background colors in with the focal panel nicely and added a little dimension to the stamped image.

The inside sentiment is from the “Cuddles & Kisses” set from Stampin’ Up (retired).

Birthday Wishes – Slimline Center Step Card

Birthday Wishes – Slimline Center Step Card

I must admit the whole “slimline card craze” has me a bit intimidated as there is so much card to decorate, but this step card design allowed me to focus on an area closer to the size with which I am used to working. (The center area is 6 x 4 inches.) Baby steps – lol!

The “Birthday Wishes” die is a Die-namics die from My Favorite Things. I also used the “Star Blast Edgelits” die from Stampin’ Up (retired?).

The striped paper is from a digital paper file by TheMockupLoft that I purchased on Etsy. The teal patterned paper is American Crafts (#320388). I also used Recollections heavy weight black, white, and Tranquil Teal from Gina K Designs.

Here is the template for creating my card base:

Start with an 8 1/2 x 8 inch panel.

The finished card is 8 1/2″ x 4″ that folds flat for mailing. It fits in a standard business envelope. (If you wish to create your own envelope with the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board, start with a 10 1/8 inch square, and make your first punch/score line at 3 1/2 inches.)

That wasn’t so scary after all!!

Autumn Triangle Gatefold Card

Autumn Triangle Gatefold Card

This card base was made with the “Triangle Gatefold” die set from Creek Bank Creations.  Also included in this set are the stitched triangles to decorate the flaps and the two stitched hexagons.  The framed leaf die is by Mosaic Moments. I created a belly band to go around the card, but the hexagon panel could have been adhered directly to one of the triangle flaps.

The inside sentiment is from the birthday “Stamp & Cut Lot 6249A” set from Firefly/Momenta. I stamped it up on the panel a bit to leave room to sign the card.

Since this card does not stand up on its own, I created a stand with the Card Stand Die from Creek Bank Creations.

To create the handmade patterned papers, I use a gel plate, a brayer, Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide inks, spritzes of water, the Stampendous! Decor Cling Leaves Rubber Stamp – DCR101, and the French Script background stamp from Stampin’ Up (retired?).  I started with a stack of heavy weight white card stock and had a ball inking, rolling, spritzing, stamping, and layering the inks using the techniques I briefly described in this post. I ended up with a BUNCH of panels, and ultimately chose two from the pile to use for this card.  (Lots of panels left for other cards!)

The card stock used was from the Recollections Nostalgia Pack along with Bazzill Butter Mints.

Congratulations On Your Sweet New Arrival

Congratulations On Your Sweet New Arrival

This card features stamps from the “Baby Talk” set by Stampin’ Up (retired).  I masked off the greeting that was part of the carriage image stamp, and I cut the greeting stamp I actually used in half so I could use the two lines separately.  Nothing like a little stamp surgery to get your heart racing – lol!! (I almost always take my rubber stamps off their wood blocks and remount them on cling foam so I can use them with my stamp positioner; I occasionally cut the stamps themselves, although I usually have to work myself up to that!!)

The joy fold card base and decorative panels were cut with (my trimmer and) the “Angel Side Circle Card Die” set which is by Creek Bank Creations.

The inside sentiment is from the “Cuddles and Kisses” stamp set by Stampin’ Up (retired).

The card stand (that will be included with the card) was cut with the “Card Stand Die” which is also by Creek Bank Creations.  The faux ribbon was cut with Poppystamp’s “Grosgrain Ribbon” die.

Graduation Bridge Card

Graduation Bridge Card

zDSC_3615

My Nephew is graduating from high school today – Congratulations, Tim!!  This is the card I made for him.

The “Celebrate Edger” die (CEDPC1069) from Creative Expressions was used for the bridge.

I wanted to create the illusion of a group of graduates in the background, and Taylored Expression’s “Graduation Border” die is great for that.   (Unfortunately, real groups of graduates are not possible at this time; like most, Tim’s graduation ceremony is virtual.  I think his school is trying for a modified “in person” ceremony of some sort later in the summer.)

The side panels were embossed with the “Graduation Hat Background” embossing folder by Darice.

The “Class of 2020” panel was a digital file from geographics.com that I sized and printed from my Silhouette software.  It was cut with an pierced rectangle die (unbranded).

The stamp on the back is the “Culmination Graduation Greeting” stamp from DRS Designs.

The base for this bridge card was made with a 10 1/2 x 5 inch piece of heavyweight card stock that was scored at 1 3/4, 3 1/2, 7, and 8 3/4.  When folded flat, this card measures 5 x 7 inches and fits in an A7 size envelope.
