Incredible All-In-One Trifold Card made from ONE piece of Card Stock. Stampin' Up! Australia.

How adorable is this card! I was playing with an idea for a tri-fold card that didn't require any hinges to make it work, and I came up with this design using the Window Frames Collection Framelit Dies. You just need ONE piece of card stock to make the card base. How cool is that! ....very pleased with self obviously.....There is a video tutorial for this card on my Youtube channel:
You could use any stamps and papers you like to create this card. I have chosen some sneak peek items from the new catalogue, which is due to be released very soon (only 6 more sleeps!). I know you will enjoy the gorgeous new stamp sets and papers. I am having fun playing with all the new goodies!

6 Cards Nature Set with a Belly Band

Stampin' Up! Australia.
Start with a whisper white card base 14cm x 19.5cm, and fold in half. Using the Magnificent Maple #131868, stamp images in Summer Starfruit, Elegant Eggplant and Cajun Craze. 
On a scrap piece of whisper white card stock, stamp sentiments from the Petite Pairs stamp set in Cajun Craze, then punch out using the oval punch. 
Layer onto Elegant Eggplant card stock punched out with the scalloped oval punch. 
Adhere to the centre of each card using dimensionals (I used different sentiments to make these cards all ocassion ).
Team with the medium envelopes in crumb cake, then using a strip of Whisper white card stock measuring 6.5cm x 30cm, stamp the leaf image again and wrap around the stack of cards and secure with Sticky Strip. 
These cards make a thoughtful gift.

Memories of My Fave Papers...soon to be gone! Stampin' Up!

                                                    Stampin' Up! Australia
Would you believe I made a video of this darling card, then had to delete it because the soundtrack was totally out of sync! Gaaaa! Never mind, I am still giving you the photo inspiration and I will now proceed to tell you what went into the construction process LOL!

Start with your gorgeous Watercolour Designer Series Paper, cut a Daffodil Delight Card base, then cut a layer of Crisp Cantaloupe 1/4" smaller, then cut a DSP piece 1/4" smaller again. Do not adhere, because we are adding a layer of Daffodil Delight ribbon (I attached it to the back of the DSP piece using good ol' Scotch tape).
Punch out a piece of DD with the petite petals punch, then stamp 2 flowers on whisper white, one in DD and one in CC (ie Crisp Cantaloupe) then punch them out as well. For the Sentiment, I used Loving Thoughts, then cut it out using the Apothecary Accents die, and sponged some more CC around the edge for definition.  
I popped on some candy dots from the Brights Pack, then added an inside layer which looks just like the envelope, in that I stamped a Petite Petal in Daffodil Delight, then in Crisp Cantaloupe, then, without re-inking I stamped again (stamped off) to form the 3rd flower.
Hope you like the finished card. Leave a comment, and share the love :)
Now I'm going back to my movie editor and finding out how to fix the sync problem.   !!!!

Floating Locket Gift box. Australia and New Zealand..

Are you looking for a good template for a necklace (or earrings would work here too)?
I wanted a bespoke box for one of my lockets so I came up with this design.
For those of you who follow me, you will know that I love jewellery and I was thrilled to find out I could buy Floating lockets in Australia. They are like wearable works of art, and no two are the same....they are totally customizable.
 There is a link below the video over on Youtube if you want to find out more, but I see many more jewellery box templates in the future....ta dah!
