Daffodil Pop-Up Box Fold

Daffodil Pop-Up Box Fold

Let’s create our own field of daffodils. The pop-up box fold is a fabulous way to show off all those 3D daffodils. This card was created for my WOW Team Card Swap.

Because I chose the pop-up box fold, I was able to add multiples of the daffodils and butterflies to fill my scene.

My color palette of Very Vanilla, Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Pear Pizzazz was inspired by the designer series paper. That’s an easy way to get those creative juices flowing.

With the pop-up box fold, there’s an entire panel on the back for your message and more stamped images.

The new Brushed Brass Butterflies (say that fast 3x) in the new January-June Mini Catalog are my favorite new embellishment. They are shiny, lightweight, self-adhesive and don’t add bulk to your cards. Now that’s what I call a card maker’s dream.

Don’t forget to dress up those envelopes. For this one, I’ve stamped and colored, with my blends on the front. Then I just couldn’t resist adding a liner with the beautiful paper. I think it’s a showstopper. Ready to learn how to create my pop-up box fold?  Visit my YouTube Channel where I’ve posted the free video tutorial.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox Fancy Fold

Grassy Grove Shadowbox Fancy Fold

My Dad is about to celebrate his 91st birthday. Time for a special card, don’t you think? My Grassy Grove Shadowbox Fancy Fold is so Dad. He loves everything outdoors and nature inspired. A farmer his whole life, there’s no big surprise about that.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

My color combination for today’s project is a bit Fall inspired. We’ve got Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, Old Olive and Basic White. To achieve both the detailed trees and the blue sky background, I’ve used the fabulous new Sale-a-Bration item, Simply Marvelous DSP. 

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Even if you don’t want to kick it up a notch with the Grassy Grove  shadowbox, you can create this lovely card front and have a fabulous masculine card design. But, as you know, you’re only 91 once. And Dad loves it when I create interactive cards for him.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

By using my handy Stampin’ Write Markers in Old Olive and Cinnamon Cider, I was able to ink up the tree stamp. That way, I could easily achieve two colors in the image.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Is that die cut not gorgeous? I love the way the deers are nestled up behind the trees. It looks like they are taking a walk in the forest.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Because I used all but one die from the set, this card gives you a true feel for what you can create when you purchase this new bundle.

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

That lovely sentiment is from another new Jan-June Mini Catalog offering. The Flowering Tulips Bundle is another great set. When I saw that sentiment, I knew I wanted to use it in Dad’s card. 

Grassy Grove Shadowbox, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

The Grassy Grove Bundle can be found on page 47. It’s a 9-piece cling stamp set with a 10-piece coordinating die set. Not only for masculine card designs, I can see this one used in your Christmas card making too!

Inside Fancy Spinner Card

Inside Fancy Spinner Card

My sweet sister’s birthday is fast approaching. Since she too, is a nature girl, I’ve created an inside fancy spinner card showcasing lots of nature inspired elements. 

Inside Fancy Spinner Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Right off the bat, I just have to sing the praises of that gorgeous designer series paper. The Simply Elegant Specialty DSP is filled with copper, gold and silver foiling. You can find that one in our Annual Catalog on page 133. Be sure to scoop up a couple packs. I’ll bet you thank me later.

Because I fussy cut a few of the flowers from the paper, I was able to create quick and easy embellishments for my focal image. And don’t you just love those sweet little bees? I think they were just the right touch.

Are you ready to open up this beauty? In the still photos, you’ll see all the detail, but be sure to watch the video tutorial to see the magic truly happen.

Inside Fancy Spinner Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

To cut the intricate image to house the butterfly for my inside fancy spinner, I turned to the Birds & More die set. How pretty is that? You could cut a plain circle, but why when you have a die like this.

Inside Fancy Spinner Card, Susan Levasseur, WOW NOLA Creations, Stampin' Up!

Did you know we have Gold Vellum? Oh yes we do and it’s shimmery at that. That’s what I’ve used on the butterfly. Not only will it spin, but it will sparkle as well.
