Large Card Box featuring Pumpkin Spice

 

After creating a wonderful set of 16 cards, I decided to pull out my Large Card Box tutorial and make a matching box to hold them.  

They all fit inside perfectly too, even along with their 16 envelopes.

Wouldn't it make a perfect last minute gift for someone?








If you are interested in getting my instructions for my Large Card Box Tutorial, you can send $4 CAD through PayPal (or eTransfer if you are in Canada) to me at vwizniuk@gmail.com, and I will email you the instructions.


Happy creating!


Pumpkin Spice Cards with Vicki's 2 Sheet Wonder

 

Hi everyone!

Hope you are well.


I'm back today to show you another sampling of fun cards I created with my NEW Two Sheet Wonder instructions, this time using papers from the very recent Pumpkin Spice paper pack.





Here's a better look at the cards...










The sweater stamp I used on my cards is from an old retired set called Ugly Sweater.  But there currently is a CTMH set that you can still get called Pumpkin Spice - Scrapbooking which even comes with matching dies.


The sentiments I used are all from one great set called For All Occassions.  A perfect addition to anyone's stamp collection.


I personally love how these cards turned out.  I hope you like them too.  ;)

If you wish to purchase a copy of my Two Sheet Wonder instructions, you can find the info here.


I also created a matching card box to hold all of these cards, using my Large Card Box Tutorial.  (I am going to create a seperate post showing it, so please look for that.)


Happy creating!

A NEW Cutting Template in the Works...

I will let you know when it is ready.

3 Different Pleated Cards

 Hello friends!  It feels so good to be back playing with my paper and inks, albeit these are all long retired now.

But still worthy of a share!  

Besides, I know you all have a huge stash of older papers and stamps like I do, unless you are just newly getting into papercrafts.

I used retired CTMH Jingle papers for these cards, and the sentiment came from a retired CTMH set called Just To Say.




I will share the sizing and scoring measurements for the patterned papers I used on my cards.

If you need more information on how to create one, you can easily search pleated cards on Pinterest.  There are lots of how-to videos on there.


This first card is a basic side pleated card.



(Please excuse my individual card photos, as it is dark out right now and I have no natural light to take photos, so I just cropped my original picture I took yesterday.)


NOTE:  when making these cards, it is easiest to adhere everything to
the card front before adhering the card front onto the card base.

Patterned paper:  4" x 9 7/8"

Score at:  1 1/2", 2 1/2", 4 1/2", 5 1/2", 7 1/2" and 8 1/2"

Measure up 1" from the bottom on the right side and mark with a pencil.

Cut from the 1" mark on an angle to the bottom of the farthest score line (the 1 1/2" score line).



My second card is a full pleated card.





Patterned paper:  3" x 11"

Score at:  1 1/2", 2", 3", 3 1/2", 4 1/2", 5", 6", 6 1/2", 7 1/2", 8", 9" and 9 1/2"

Measure up on both short sides and mark at 1 1/2" with a pencil.

Cut from the 1 1/2" mark (on the left) on an angle to the 5" score line.

Cut from the 1 1/2" mark (on the right) on an angle to the 6" score line.

After it is attached, trim off excess that hangs over sides.






My third card is a peek-a-boo pleated card.

You get to use some fun patterned papers underneath that peek out behind the pleated paper. 




Patterned paper:  3 1/2" x 8"

I didn't score this one the way I did the above cards.  There were no measurement instructions on the inspiration card I saw on Pintrest, only an image.  And on this one you will not be cutting an angle off.  So bear with me while I do my best to explain what I did for these folds.... lol

Using my fingers to pleat, I pleated at approx 1" in from the top right and 1 5/8" in from the bottom right. 

Then, again using my fingers, I pleated at 1 1/8" in from my first pleated line (at the top) and 1 1/2" in from the first pleated line (at the bottom).

I then used a bone folder to make my pleats nice and crisp.

Adhere this piece onto your 4" x 5 1/4" patterened paper, with the excess on the left side.  Trim excess off before adhering onto your card base.

Lastly, I used my scissors to trim a little of the overhang on the right side, so it would be able to fit into an envelope.




I hope you like my cards and that maybe I inpired you to pull out some of your papers and stamps that you may not have looked at for a while.

If you make some, tag me.  I'd love to see them!


Happy creating!

Using a OSW to create a TSW set of cards

 Hi everyone!  I wanted to pop in to let you all know I've started creating again.

AND that I just signed back up with CTMH! 


Since I'm back on here, I thought I would share how I used a One Sheet Wonder (OSW) found on Pinterest HERE, and then how I changed it up to a Two Sheet Wonder (TSW), which not only doubles the amount of cards you make, but it turns them from some simple cards, to looking like they are not so simple.  But either way you choose to create them, they are beautiful!


These are the OSW cards I created using the template.



And these are the cards I created using two different coordinating sheets of patterned papers, what I'm calling a Two Sheet Wonder (TSW).



To make it easy, I put both sheets of paper together when cutting the template.


Note:  All products used are retired CTMH.

With Heartfelt Sympathy - Know That I Care Stamp Set


I created this card with the CTMH Know That I Care stamp set.

The little heart is from the I Heart Us Cardmaking stamp set.

And I stamped the images onto the darker side of Linen cardstock with Intense Black ink, then coloured them in with Copic markers.








Happy creating!  :)
