Card Ideas using the Fine Art Floral Suite!

A lot of times I hear from others they find it hard to come up with card ideas. They love the products but once they have them, they just don’t know what to do or where to start.

With this in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to share with you the process I use to come up with card ideas when using a suite. 

So here is the process:

  1. Select a suite that you want to use. 
    • If you don’t have a full suite then select a paper pack, a ribbon spool that would coordinate, as well as some gems or rhinestones and a stamp set!
  2. Pick a sheet from the paper pack you want to use 
  3. Look for color combinations from the patterned paper you selected in step #2
  4. Pull cardstock in the colors you selected for your color combo 
  5. Think of what you will use as your focal point 
    • In my cards you will see that I wanted to highlight the stamped images as I wanted to showcase some stamping techniques, but this can be die cuts, stickers, etc.
  6. Look for sketches that will fit best your focal point
  7. Have fun putting together your cards!

You can see how easy this process is! believe me, try it out and let me know what you think.. I promise you that if you ever struggled coming up with card ideas this process will help a ton! 

If you to want to get even more details on how to come up with your own card ideas every single time, with ease and confidence then you might want to join my Card Making 101 program.

Three Easy Fall Cards to make!

With Fall upon us, I know we all need to have easy Fall cards to make during this season! Don’t you agree? 

So with that in mind today I wanted to share with you Three easy Fall cards you can make in no time. Plus I will share with you a few tips on how to maximize your designer series paper to get more cards out of it! 

Let’s get started, shall we???

Three Easy Fall Cards to Make 

The cards I am showing today are all made using the the Tidings Plaid designer series paper.  And what is cool about it is that I only use one 6 x 6 sheet of paper from that pack to make all three cards.. I also coordinated these cards with some scraps I had from the Regals DSP pack. However you can easily change them for cardstock if you don’t have this paper pack.  Below the cards! 

Easy Fall cards using designer series paper

 

As you can imagine you can made these cards in any color combination available in the pack, all three cards are very simple to change the theme, if you don’t want to make Fall cards. Just change the sentiment and the pumpkins for some other shape and your are ready to go. 

The Color Combination 

You are probably tired of hearing this, however, the designer series paper is how I get all my color combinations and this was not the exception. I followed the main designer series paper to pick up the colors I wanted to use for this card. 

If you are ever struggling with colors, just follow this tip and I promise you, you will be golden.  No need to get all fancy with color theories and all that jazz.. you can just see your paper and pay attention to the colors you like in a pattern and go from there.. trust me you will see how easy it gets the more you do this.    

Sketches and other details 

As I mentioned in the intro, these Fall cards are super easy to make, and they maximize your paper, meaning you can make a lot of cards from just one sheet of 6 x 6 DSP. 

In this case I used a strip of 2″ for the first card and the for the second I used what was left, the key for the third card was to die cut the rectangle from the piece that I was using on card #2 so I could use that portion on card #3. 

This tip is a great one, specially is you are covering it with another element. After all no one will even notice it! And you get three cards instead of two! how cool is that!! right? 

Bellow the sketches and the cards in more detail in an effort to help you see better the elements and to make it easier for you to case. I have also provided below the video tutorial for you to see step by spec how to make these cards.

A few other tips for you:

  • The pumpkin was stamped with Early Espresso on a Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then added color with the stampin’ blends a.k.a. alcohol markers. This makes it easy to add dimension to our element without too much effort. 
  • The ribbon was colored using the stampin’ blends. So if you are ever thinking you don’t have the perfect ribbon for your project, think again and color with your alcohol markers. Even better, using the stampin’ blends make them color coordinate 100% with your project.

Three tips to make Easy Fun Fold Cards

One of the questions I get a lot is how to make Easy Fun Fold Cards, so today I wanted to take some time to share with you some of my tips.. you will see that these three cards are easy to make and easy to change to incorporate any paper collection you have! 

So let’s get started! 

How to make Three Easy Fun Fold Cards 

When thinking of fun folds, we picture complex cards, and fear that these will be super hard to make. It can get a bit intimidating.. 

However, Fun Fold cards can be super easy and still have that “WOW” factor that we all love. Specially when we want to add a little bit of interaction in our cards, and make them even more special for the person opening one of these cards. 

On the cards I am showing you below, you will see that these all look as regular cards, but it is when you open them that you see that “WOW” factor.  So here are a few tips to consider when coming up with your own fun folds.

Easy Fun Folds to try

 

Tips when making Fun Folds:

Here are a few of my best tips when it comes to making fun fold cards in an easy way! 

1.- Think of alternative ways you can fold the card base

Whether you have an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ or an 11″ x 4 1/4″ card base, you know that the card front should end up measuring 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.  So think of different combinations of folds that can result in this final measurement. 

A few examples of this could be:

  • Card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ – Regular fold is at 4 1/4″ 
    • Score at 2 1/8″ and at 6 3/8″ and you will get a gate fold card
  • Card base 11″ x 4 1/4″ – Regular fold is at 5 1/2″
    • Score at 3″ and at 8 1/2″ –  this is the type I made in card #1 (below)

Click here to see another example of Fun Fold on this post where you play with the measurements of the card base. 

Easy Fun Folds to try    Easy Fun Folds to try   Easy Fun Folds to try

 

2.- Fold in Half Twice the card base

This is by far one of my favorite ways to make Fun Folds! Similar to the tip above, you can do this with an 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ or an 11″ x 4 1/4″ card base.

This is the easiest and you don’t have to remember scoring marks, though you can make score marks if you want. You can see that I used this method on card #2. 

One thing to consider with this type of fun fold is that you could use the inside of your card, so always put a smaller piece in the inside than the piece you are adding to the front to decorate.  Also always glue the inside first and then glue the layer on the top, that way you ensure you cover the inside of your card.  

If you want the measurements to score, here you go:

  • Card base 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ – Regular fold is at 4 1/4″ 
    • Score at 2 1/8″ and at 4 1/4″ 
  • Card base 11″ x 4 1/4″ – Regular fold is at 5 1/2″
    • Score at 2 3/4″ and at 5 1/2″ –  this is the type I made in card #2 (below)

Click here to see other examples of this type of fun fold using a different suite.

Easy Fun Folds to try   Easy Fun Folds to try   Easy Fun Folds to try

 

3.- See your sketch and think which piece can be added as a fold

This tip is a bit more advanced, but not hard at all, you just need to see which piece in a sketch can be added as the fold.

To help you pick which piece in a sketch can be added as a fold, think of the layer that is positioned towards the edge or the borders of your card. This will allow you to add a tab to make the fun fold.  

Your card base in this case is a quarter of a sheet (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) and when you add the piece you selected from your sketch, you cut it 1/2″ larger (on the side that goes toward the edge) to make a tab that you can fold and glue it to the front. To cover this tab you glue another cardstock or a piece of designer series paper so the tab is in between the card base and the DSP or second layer of cardstock. 

Similar to the card above make sure that you glue the inside of your card before and then glue the top layer, to ensure you cover the inside of your card.

You can see exactly what I mean in the video tutorial as this is how I made card #3 (below)

The Video Tutorial 

And as usual, you can watch the video tutorial below where I show step by step how to make these cards. I think that the video will clarify a lot more what I explain above.. I am a firm believer that a visual always helps.. If you have any questions by all means leave me a comment and I will answer any question you might have regarding these fun fold cards!

 

Finally, I have a question for you. If you could have a private conversation with me, what two questions would you like to ask me? – I’m really serious – go ahead and send me an email me at allie@creatingwithallie.com and tell me your question. What do you need help with? – Until next week..

Cute Halloween Cards to make with Have a Hoot bundle

Blog hop banner

Are you looking for cute Halloween cards to make? if so, you are in for a treat! As today I am sharing with you three cute Halloween cards that you can make using the Have a Hoot bundle from Stampin’ Up! 

Also, Today I am participating in a blog hop with other demonstrators around the world and the theme as you can guess is Halloween, so if you are looking for inspiration for your Halloween projects, you are in the right place! 

Make sure you visit all the participating blogs! I am sure you will enjoy hopping with us. 

Ok, so without further ado, so let’s get started! 

How to make Cute Halloween Cards

As I was mentioning in the introduction, for these Halloween cards I wanted to use the Have a Hoot Bundle from Stampin’ Up!.

This set has different sets of little owls, all super cute. And even better, these owls can be used for so many occasions. So check it out, I am sure you will love it. 

As usual, once I selected the stamp set to use, I looked for designer series paper to get the idea of colors I wanted to use for my projects. And once I had selected the color combo, then it was just matter of selecting sketches to make cards. 

This process makes it easy to come up with card ideas every single time. Give it a try and you will see.

Cute Halloween cards to make

The color combo

Selecting the colors for my cards is always very easy when I based it on the patterned paper I want to use.. this always ensure that I have a cohesive project and that they look color coordinated.

For these cards, I decided on the following color combo.

One thing you will note is that the Gorgeous Grape was not part of the designer series paper. Instead, this was my own addition. Mainly because I knew this color would pop up even more the cape on the owl. 

So, try to see if you can add a highlight color to your color combo… sometimes that adds a lot to the card.. 

Sketches & Details 

Below you will see the sketches I used for each of the cards you are seeing in this post and the corresponding card, as well as some of the details.

If you want to learn how to make these cards step by step, then make sure you watch the video tutorial below. I also show you in detail how to color using the stampin’ blends a.k.a. alcohol markers.   

Handmade Card #1

sketches to play     Cute Halloween cards to make

For this first card I loved the cluster of die cuts together to build up the card. Having a small owl as the image for my card, kinda forced me to think of ways to make it stand out, and having a small cluster of die cuts helped a lot. 

I also added some rhinestones that I colored with the basic black stampin’ blend. You can do this with ribbons and gems to get embellishments in any color that you need. Plus when you use Stampin’ Up! you will get embellishments that color coordinate perfectly. 

Handmade Card #2

sketches to play     Cute Halloween cards to make

For the second card I added a punched diamond made with the tailored tag, and to add a second layer I added two more diamonds punched in basic black. Note that I glue them where a you can see only a little border. you can do this to add mats to the little pieces.

I particularly liked the ribbon underneath the white diamond. This is the first time I have done this, and I am not gonna lie I think I will be doing this again soon as I really like how it looked. 

Also having the ribbon and the diamond gave a great layout to add the little owl as the focal point. 

Handmade Card #3

sketches to play     Cute Halloween cards to make

And finally on this card, I loved the layout in general. Not sure if you can tell, but I have added a layer of basic black on top of the basic black card base, but the top layer has a texture from the Tasteful Textile #D embossing folder. This makes this layer pop up. 

I have really enjoying adding texture with the embossing folders. These add a lot of wow factor to your cards with really not much work. So give it a try!

How to make Cheerful Birthday Cards

Hey friend, Today I am sharing with you an easy way to make cheerful birthday cards using the Zany Zebras. This set is soon becoming a favorite of mine as these little zebras are easy to color and have so much personality!  So let’s get started, shall we!!

How to make Cheerful Birthday Cards 

One of the things that help me when making cards is thinking about the feeling I want them to have. In this case I wanted to have Cheerful Birthday Cards and with that in mind I thought of bright colors. 

Once I have the emotion defined then it is easy to look for paper that inspire me that sentiment. 

When looking for the patterned paper, the stripe pattern from the Flowers for all seasons DSP called my attention immediately, as it is bright, and cheerful. 

Cheerful Birthday cards to make

The Color Combination 

As usual, I picked the color combination for my cards from the designer series paper. I love doing this as a lot of the times I can get new color combinations that I would not have come up otherwise! 

Honestly I would have never picked these colors on my own, however when I saw the patterned paper, I knew this was the color combo I wanted to try! 

Most of the times I don’t think of red and pinks together, but it worked really well. I loved that all the colors are so bright and they shout happy at me! Don’t you think? 

Card Details and Sketches

Once I have figure out the paper, the set and the color combination, I then proceed to find sketches for the cards.. I love doing this, as I can get super fun looks on my cards. Sketches are truly what sparks my imagination and creativity every single time! believe me!! 

Below you will see the sketches I used with the corresponding card, so that you get an idea of what you can do when using sketches! 

Handmade Card #1

 Sketches to play     Cheerful Birthday cards to make

One thing that I did on all these cards was fussy cutting the zebras as well as their party hat, that way I could use them in all the cards as if they were embellishments. 

Additionally for the sentiments I actually die cut the banner shape with the tasteful labels, that way I had matching stitched marks in the circle and the sentiment. I honestly think that this added a little of flair to this card. 

And finally, I added ribbon and the enamel dots, which are my most favorite embellishments to add to cards. I think that just adding a bow and gems to any card will make it look amazing.  

Do you have embellishments that you tend to use a lot when making cards? if so are what are your favorite embellishments? which are the ones that need to be in every card you make? Let me know in the comments below.. 

Handmade Card #2 

 Sketches to play     Cheerful Birthday cards to make

For this card, I used two sizes of circles, but you could use the same size if you want to. Just play with it and see what you like best. 

Additionally, I added another pattern to the circles as you can see from the picture. If you don’t have another coordinating pattern you could always use cardstock and add texture or stamps on it, to add some interest.. 

Handmade Card #4

 Sketches to play     Cheerful Birthday cards to make

For my third card, I just loved this sketch!! I think this one is a really cute and easy one to do and some how it calls my attention a lot more.. maybe it is the ribbon around the top layer.. I don’t know, but by far this was my favorite. 

By the way if you are interested to see how to make all the cards, I have you covered my friend! I have a full video tutorial for you to see step by step how to make these cheerful birthday cards! 

Cheerful Birthday cards to make  And by the way, I wanted to share with you what you can do to the inside of your cards. I did this for all my cards. 

I just stamped a zebra into a piece of whisper white, I colored it and then add it to the card. 

One thing to share here is that more and more I make these little inserts which are 3″ x 4 1/4″. I really love this size as it is large enough to not feel overwhelm when addressing the cards. 

I have implemented these smaller inserts on my cards, as I felt in the past that having a full size ( 4″ x 5 1/4″) would make me feel like I have to write too much and sometimes I don’t have too much to say.. Once I change this size it became easier for me to send cards. 

If you struggle with the same, then give it a try! I specially love this for Christmas cards for instance where I send a gazillion of cards and I know I will not be sending long written letters. 

The Video Tutorial 

And as promised here is the video tutorial where you can learn how to make these cheerful birthday cards cards step by step. I go over all the supplies, as well as all the measurements.

How to Make Masculine cards with Stamps and Die Cuts

On today’s post I want to share with you an easy way to make masculine cards with stamps and die cuts. I feel like more often than not, I need masculine cards. So when I saw the stamp set Loyal Leaves, I got super excited as I knew this would be a great set for masculine cards..

At the same time, I thought this stamp set would be gorgeous if paired with the Love of Leaves bundle. And in specific with the die set, as it has the large leaves that you can add as embellishments. 

Having stand along die cuts, like these leaves, is awesome as you can make your own embellishments. Therefore these will coordinate perfectly with any of your projects! You can see below how these leaves add the perfect touch to these masculine cards. 

How to make three easy Masculine cards using stamps and dies

Color Combination 

For these masculine cards I wanted to use a nature’s look focusing on the wood pattern from the designer series paper, so I went with browns and the metallic brushed card stock. 

Masculine Cards using stamps and die cuts

Sketches and Details 

A quick tip when making these masculine cards with stamps and dies is to have the die cuts ready, I actually die cut several of them in the colors I thought would go well, so in my case this was int eh metallic brushed card stock as well as the early espresso. 

This always helps to have a visual as you are putting the card together as you can be switching the leaves and see which one you like the best before gluing it onto the card. 

If you have extra leaves at the end, no worries, you can save them in a baggie and used them in a future project. 😉

Masculine Card #1

Sketches to play        How to make three easy Masculine cards using stamps and dies

As usual I used sketches to come up with the card ideas. I always recommend using sketches as these really helps in coming up with card ideas. You can so many variations to a sketch, that you can have an endless list of card designs at your fingertips. 

Believe me, give it a try and you will see how your creativity flows. 

In fact last week we had a challenge on my FB Group and from one simple sketch we made 16 cards!! all looking great and unique!! it was such a great challenge to teach others how to kick-start their creativity!  So definitely give it a try to sketches!

For this card, I wanted to add a partial stamping to the background of the card, and then a simple sentiment.  you can see that then I just embellish the card using the leaves and then a few of the gilded gems. 

Masculine Card #2

Sketches to play        How to make three easy Masculine cards using stamps and dies

On this second card I wanted to make a full stamped background. I used the largest leave from the Loyal Leaves stamp set and then stamped it with Soft Suede.

The tip here is that you need to stamp in three different tones of the same color, and the way you can achieve that is by stamping off on a separate paper and then onto the whisper white card stock, that way you get different tones of the same color. By doing this you will add depth to your background which makes it look even prettier. 

You can watch the video tutorial below to see exactly how to get this look when stamping.

Masculine Card #3

Sketches to play        How to make three easy Masculine cards using stamps and dies

Finally for this masculine card I wanted to get a simpler look and so the background of the cards is a piece of designer series paper without any stamping. and on the focal point I added the leaves.

To add more interest to the card, I stamped the sentiment onto the smaller circle and then added a banner under it. And similar to the last two cards, I added three gilded gems as embellishments.
