Label Flip Card

Stampin' Up! unveiled the flip card die collections at our annual convention in July along with some sweet ideas for using them. This card is my version of one of them using the Label flip card die.

The Labels framelits are a perfect to use with this collection.

The Boutique Details embellishment holds the card closed by overlapping the label on the card front.
When opened some cute little die cuts, included in the collection, hang from a length of twine.

The heart die is from the Circle flip card collection. Some of them are embossed, and all of them are different on each side.

Some tips for making this card.

-cut card stock 6 in. X 8-1/4 and score at 2-3/8
-fold and crease on the score line
-place the card stock on the magnetic platform and position the framelit die over it with the crease inside the cutting edge
-fold on the score lines
-apply Sizzix adhesive sheet to silver glimmer card stock
-cut the silver glimmer card stock with a die and the Big Shot
-peel the die cut off the backing paper and adhere it to the card
-pierce the label through the small heart punch
-thread the end of the twine through the hole
-adhere the end of the twine to the back of the label
-adhere the label inside the card
-apply an adhesive foam dot to the embellishment and adhere it to the front of the card over the edge of the front label.

Circle Flip Card

I finally got around to using Stampin' Up!'s new Thinlits flip card dies. Such FUN!

This card is CASEd almost exactly from one made by Michelle Reynolds. Check out her blog Her idea to use this stamp with a punch art vinyl album is genius!

Not only do you get the die for the card, but the collection includes lots of other embellishment dies including the star I used here.
When you pull the card the circle flips over to the other side.

I used a marker to ink parts of the sentiment and stamp them separately.

Memo Medley Paper Pumpkin

The October '13 Paper Pumpkin is just too cute! As soon as I opened the box I dropped everything (we had left-overs) and enjoyed my paper crafting escape. Of course, I had to customize it.

I used the ink spots from previous kits to stamp the images from this kit.

With the extra twine I added an unused button from last month's kit.

The pen isn't included in the kit, but at my house it's a good idea to attach one where you'll need it.

-cut a rectangle of paper from the printed roll
-roll the paper around the pen refill and insert it into the barrel

Wahoo! Paper Pumpkin

My September Paper Pumpkin arrived and I have to admit I was excited to see the creative surprise it contained.

Poof! Disappointment. (Flimsy card stock, so-so design...) I knew it would happen, but so soon?

Not to worry, there is a happy ending.

I called Stampin' Up! and Voila! They assured me that I could get a refund or product of equal value.

Since I received such great customer service, I decided to try to do something with the kit. And, here's the result.

By joining the envelopes together and making covers from the chipboard packing sheets I made a mini-album. Cut the cards up to make the mats. Then add photos and journalling.

-pierce holes in the front cover mat and attach the button with twine
-a needle threader is my favourite tool for getting the twine through pierced holes
-tie a length of twine around the twine holding the button to the mat and wrap it around the album
