It's A Guy Thing - June 2024 ICS Blog Hop


Hello everyone! I've got a spectacular fun fold card to share with you today.  It's part of the Inspire, Create, Share "It's a Guy Thing" blog hop.  That means you're gonna get lots of great masculine project ideas today. YAY!!

My project is a really cool fun fold design that I found (somewhere) online. I tweaked the layout and made it my own using the Take To The Sky suite of products.  I absolutely LOVE the Adventurous Sky Stamp & Die Bundle with all the old airplanes and fabulous fonts! And, the coordinating Designer Series Paper (DSP) is just PERFECT for this kind of card! 

Are you ready to see it? 


Right away, the seriously COOL thing about this card is the depth created by the fun fold design and mechanisms. There are THREE amazing depths to this card!!  


Here are the supply list & measurements if you'd like to make your own: 

* Card Base: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" (This is just a 1/4 sheet of cardstock)
                * Layer #1 Cardstock: (cut 2) 1 3/8" x 4 1/8", (cut 1) 2 3/8" x 4 1/8"
                * Layer #2 DSP: (cut 2) 1 1/4" x 4", (cut 1) 2 1/4" x 4"
* Card Front: 4 1/2" x 4 1/4" Cardstock (scored at 2 1/4" on the longer side)
                * Layer #1 Cardstock: (cut 2) 2 1/8" x 4 1/8"
                * Layer #2 DSP: (cut 2) 2" x 4" 
* Mechanism between the two panels: 10" x 1 1/2" Cardstock, scored at every 1 1/4" mark across
* Window Sheet Floating strip: 6" x 3/4" (you can do 6" x 1/2" if you like, or even 6" x 1". The width of the strip should be relative to the size of the things you're attaching to it. But the length will stay 6".)


Begin by adhering layers 1 & 2 together.  On the card base, you can attach the two skinny strips to the outer edges directly.  Before attaching the middle section to the base, slide the mechanism strip behind it.  The two center sections of the mechanism will remain flat and fit behind the center section securely.  Once you've attached that, it'll look like this...... 


To attach the card front to the base, use a little multipurpose liquid glue on a tab of the mechanism and then center the back of the front to the base lining up the fold with the edge of the mechanism.  


Fold the front over onto the mechanism and add glue to the other end of mechanism and attach the remaining section of the card front.  Now, your card front should "bobble" over the card base. :-D Fun!!!

Before attaching the layers to the card front, you'll need to attach one end of the Window Sheet strip to the outer edge of each layer. And then stick it to the card front. This will sandwich the ends of the window sheet and cause the strip to curve or "float" over the front of the card. This creates the third layer of depth to the card! Anything you want to look like it's forward on the card, goes here. 

Here's another card I did, using the "Beauty Of The Deep" and "Sea Turtle" stamp sets.  It was so much fun to make the sea turtle look like he's swimming through the ocean!  Don't you think?

Hello my crafty friends!!! Today I bring you the FRESH and NEW 2024-2026 In Color Club! The club includes the five new 2024-2026 InColor Collection, and friends, they are ADORABLE!!! 

Take a look at the beautifully pastel colors here: 


Wonderful, right?  You know it!  I'm so excited to spend some time getting to know these colors better!

Well, we all want ALL THE THINGS, don't we?  But sometimes its a bit much to order all the things at once.  

Introducing my In-Color Club!  

What is the In-Color Club you ask? It's a 5 month commitment to receive products in each color of the collection.  You'll get all the things in that color for that month, PLUS a beautiful handmade card from me. It's an affordable way to get ALL THE THINGS without paying a fortune up front. 


In each month's club kit, you will receive: 
* 16 - 6x6" sheets of Cardstock 
* 8 - 6x6" sheets of Designer Series Paper
* 4 - 6x6" sheets of Specialty Glimmer Paper
* 1 roll of Ribbon
* 1 Ink Pad
* 1 Ink Refill
* 1 Stampin' Write Marker
* A handmade card featuring that month's color!

All of this will be bundled together for you and the cost is $43.00

You can also ADD ON the matching Stampin' Blends Marker Combo Pack for $11.  I'll even throw in the tax and shipping for the Blends!


At the end of the 5 months, you'll also receive the 2024-2026 Adhesive Backed Resin Dots (pictured above) as my FREE GIFT to you for being a part of my in-color club!! YAYAYA!!

As you can see, this is a terrific way to get all the things without having to buy it all at once! 

Not local to me? No worries! I'll package everything up in a Flat Rate Padded Mailer and ship it to your door (US CUSTOMERS ONLY)!  Just click that option on the form below.
