Bron's B'day Blog Hop - Fancy Fold


Hello and welcome,

My name is Vicki Boucher and I'm from Melbourne, Australia. Tonight, I'll be blog hopping along with other stamping friends that are celebrating Bron's 60th Birthday in 2022 with six blog hops, over six months with six different themes. This month is all about Fancy Folds.

Bronwyn Eastley of Addinktive  Designs creates the most amazing 3D projects and has set up this blog hop for her birthday. I'm so excited to see everyone's amazing Fancy Folds projects and I'm so glad I could join in the fun with everyone. Whether you just came from Leonie Stuart's blog or are just starting here, be sure to continue on through the rest of the blog hop by clicking the navigation buttons at the end of this post. I'll pop the next link at the end of my blog.

Tree Lot Dies (159938)

Tonight's Fancy Fold is a fun fold card using the very cute, FREE! Saleabration item, Tree Lot Dies (159938) which is on page 12 of the Sale-A-Bration Catalogue. The dies coordinates with the Trees for Sale Stamp Set (159785) which is on page 39 of the July - Dec Mini Stampin' Up! Catalogue. You can earn the dies for FREE with a qualifying purchase of $180 AUD from now until 31st August 2022 or until while supplies last. I've seen some amazing creations using both the dies and stamp set, so be quick before they go!

Another Stampin' Up! item I've used is the Charming Landscapes Embossing Folders (159593) which can be found in the Mini Catalogue on page 17. I thought this would be great to use for my 3D project, I've used the snowy mountain tops, creating an outdoorsy type of landscape with the caravan. 

Charming Landscapes Embossing Folders (159593)

The fun fold can open and close and fits inside a normal size envelope. Dimensions for cutting and scoring are listed below. This fun fold I've used a number of times and it stands up really well.


 Starry Sky Card Base 

- Cut at 21cm x 14.9cm

- Score and fold at 5.5cm, 8.5cm, 12.5 and 15.5cm

Basic White Cardstock 

- Cut two Basic White at 14.4cm x 5cm each

- Cut one middle piece Basic White at 14.4cm x 3.5cm

Emboss all three panels using the snowy landscape embossing folder from Charming Landscapes Embossing Folders.

Main front panel

Stitched Rectangle Die - Use 10.4 x 6.9cm in Basic White 

Emboss die-cut piece using the snowy landscape embossing folder from Charming Landscapes Embossing Folders.

To create the illusion of a midnight sky and blue mountains for the embossed panels and stitched die-cut front panel. I embossed another piece of Basic White Cardstock and the snowy landscape embossing folder and fussy cut around the mountains. 

Holding the cut embossed piece over the panel to create a mask, use Blending Brush and apply using different shades of inks. I used Orchid Oasis, Starry Sky and Night of Navy Classic Stampin' Pad. I also used the mountain top to keep white and coloured in the mountain with the Blending Brush.

I wanted to create different shades of blues for the trees and also to keep with the theme of blue. I used coloured cardstock in Night of Navy and Orchid Oasis, using the Blending Brush to add more depth with the same colour to the tree. Then using Basic White cardstock and the detailed die to create snowy trees.

I always love red, white and blue together so I just had to use Real Red as part of my caravan and silver makes it look even more special. Shiny too! I used Vellum Cardstock for one of the layers for the curtains and the other is Basic White, coloured in with Starry Sky ink.

I hardly did any stamping for tonight's card which is not like me at all. I used the Trees for Sale Stamp Set for the sentiment and the cute "Trees for Sale" sign in Real Red ink.
