Today, I have another fun fold card idea for you that is easy to make. For last night's Mystery Stamping event, we created Bridge Fold cards. I love this card because it has so much dimension to it. It fits in a regular sized envelope, but will pop out to stand nicely on someone's mantel or windowsill. Today's samples use three different stamp sets and packs of patterned paper. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Valentine's Card Idea
My first card sample for this bridge fold card uses the Snail Mail patterned paper and the new Punch Party stamp set. This stamp set is available FREE during Sale-A-Bration when you host a class or party with at least $350 in sales. I would love to help you earn it, be sure to check out the different types of events you could host and send me an email!
Directions for Creating a Bridge Card
I just couldn't stop ink blending with the new blending brushes from Stampin' Up! They are just too much fun! If you missed it, be sure to check out yesterday's post where I shared lots of samples using ink blended backgrounds as well as a video on how to do ink blending. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
Pretty Perennials Lots of Happy Card Idea
Like yesterday, I used the new Pretty Perennials stamp set and dies from the 2021 January-June Mini Catalog. For today's card, I wanted some warm sunny colors, so I turned to Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, and Poppy Parade. I created the ombre ink blended card front using blending brushes and then spritzed it with water to create the water spots. When it was dry, I added stenciled polka dots in the upper left and lower right corners using poppy parade ink and a blending brush. I added the die-cut black flowers over the stencil with a small rhinestone in the center of each. I stamped the greeting with Poppy Parade and Jet Black Stazon ink.
Stampin' Up!'s new Blending Brushes might be the new item from the January-June Mini Catalog that I am most excited about. If you remember, a few months ago, I shared how to do ink blending using make-up brushes. These new blending brushes are so much better! So, I had to make a new video to show you some of the fun things you can do with them. Plus I have lots of sample cards! So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
