These are the cards have the WOW factor, but are sometimes quite easy to make even though they look complicated. We have 13 ideas for this occasion. Our blog hop each month is a project along the theme of the tutorial, but is a different design from the tutorial project.

I demonstrated this card at a virtual event last weekend using a different sheet of the Favored Flowers DSP.

Below is the replay of my Facebook live. Apologies in advance for the poor quality of the video. Facebook has decided that it will only allow me to download my videos in low quality. I have a fix foe next time, but unfortunately I didn’t know this until I downloaded the presentation!

Stampin’ creative Blog Hop – Season Of Chic

Thank you for joining us for this month’s Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this is Wow Cards!

This is my card for today, it is a simple fun fold, and the wow comes in when it starts to open

This is a really easy card to make. Start with a piece of card stock 21.0 x 21.0 cm
(8 1/4 x 8 1/4in). Score along the top and the left side at 7.0 cm (2 3/4 in) measure and mark 14cm (5.5 in) right and down from the top left corner. Score diagonally from one mark to the other. Fold and burnish the score lines pushing the diagonal lines towards each other. If these instructions aren’t making sense, join me for my Facebook live on Sunday morning at 10:00 am (Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time – daylight savings come in on Sunday morning at 2:00am) and I will show you how it all comes together.

Diagonal Easel Fold Kits In The Mail

The new annual catalogue goes live today!! Do you have your wish list ready? I have been working with 11 other demonstrators, and we have started a new collaboration which will start this month. Each month we are creating a new fun fold tutorial. The tutorial has instructions to make the card, and examples of 12 different versions of that card.

I am going to make up kits which can be purchased (in Australia) for $12 per month (including postage). Each kit will contain the card stock and embellishments to make 2 cards. You will also get the PDF of the tutorial and a link to an unlisted video demonstrating how to make up your kit.

The tutorial this month is for a diagonal easel card.

The cards this month are all featuring pansies. The kit contains the card stock and DSP for 2 cards. There are 8 pansies and 6 leaves (assorted colours) and a strip of iridescent rhinestones. I used the Pansy patch stamp set (you can use any sentiments that you have on hand). If you want to make more of these cards you can stamp the pansies and cut them out with the coordinating Pansy dies. You will need ink pads, Stampin’ Dimensionals and adhesive to complete the cards. Click here to order these products from my online store. You can add additional items to the cart or remove ones that you already have on hand. Please remember to use the host code on the side when you place your order. The products can be ordered directly from Stampin’ Up!, but the order for the kit needs to be placed directly with me. Please send me an email at TraceOfCreativity@outlook.com to place your order.

If you live don’t love in Australia and you would like to purchase a kit, feel free to shoot me an email and I will put you onto one of the demonstrators in your market. Please be aware that the cards in the kit won’t be the same, but the tutorial will.

I am looking forward to sharing these amazing tutorials with you.

Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop – Let’s Set Sail

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Blog-Hop-Header.jpg

Thank you for joining us for this Stampin’ Creative blog hop. The theme for this month is “Masculine Makes” We all seem to find masculine cards a bit more challenging. There are so many beautiful floral stamp sets, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to making feminine cards, but we battle to make cards for the men in our lives. Fortunately, there are some lovely masculines stamp sets that are available at the moment. One of my favourites is Let’s Set Sail. As an added bonus, you can bundle it with the Sailboat Builder punch.

This is a faux step card and look like this from the side

I have had a crazy couple of weeks, so things aren’t as up to date as I would like them to be. Check back here on Sunday, and I will have instructions on how to make this card posted.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Below is the list of all the hop participants. Be sure to visit them all to see what they have created. We love hearing from you, so please leave us comments to let us know what you think about our projects
