Stampin' Up! All That's New

Welcome to the Remarkably Creative All that's New Blog Hop

I am super happy to be joining this Blog Hop hosted by Janet Wakeland and featuring 27 incredibly  talented stampers from all over the world. We will be featuring new products and new colors from the just released Stampin' Up ! 2018 Annual Catalog 

   I have two cards for you today because with so many new products to feature it's impossible to choose just one. I am showing off some of our beautiful new Designer Series Paper(DSP) with fun fold cards.

The card on the top is a gate fold card and the card on the bottom is a drapery fold.  Both cards feature the gorgeous Designer Series Paper(DSP) from the Share What You Love DSP pack. I love these papers. The  color combos are beautiful and some of them have been pearlized.This DSP is a little thicker than many of our DSP's which makes them perfect for making boxes.

For my drapery fold card, I used Blackberry Bliss for the card base. I am so excited that this former In-Color has returned to our core color collection as part of the recent color revamp.  I added some of the new velvet ribbon,Artisan Pearles, and a pearlized doily 

This paper pleats beautifully but because it is thicker you need to use a stronger adhesive. I used Tear and Tape between the pleats and to adhere the DSP to the card base.

Measurements for the Drapery fold card:

The card base is 5 1/2 by 8 1/2, scored at 4 1/4.  For the DSP, cut 4 x 11-1/2, then score at 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, and 10.  Cut from the 3″ score to approx 1-3/4″ down from top right corner to make the diagonal.  After you score the DSP then you pleat the paper.

My second card is a gate fold. I used the DSP from the same collection and a Mossy Meadow card base. Mossy Meadow is another color that I am very happy to see returning to our collection.

 The images are from the Various Vases stamp set which  has a coordinating punch.

I used the new 2018-20120 In-color Grapefruit Grove to color the flowers and then used a touch of Wink of Stella . 

Measurement for the gate fold card:
Card base 4 1/4 by 11
Score at 2 3/4 and 8 1/4
For the front panels 4 by 2 1/2 

If you have never made a Gate Fold card this video will show you how easy it is.

There is a complete products list for both cards at the end of the post after the blog roll.
