VIDEO: Stampin' Up! Flowering Zinnias Pleated Paper Card (aka Curtain Fold)

I brought back an old favorite when Mom and I featured the Online Exclusives Flowering Zinnias Suite in a recent episode of Sunday Stamping with Susan & Julie. Have you tried the Pleated Paper technique? I created two versions: one using the detailed dies and one using the stamped images from the Simply Zinnias bundle. Which one do you prefer?

Stampin' Up! Colors: Highland Heather, Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, 
Mossy Meadow, Pumpkin Pie, and Lemon Lolly

I used Highland Heather and Old Olive Stampin' Blends to color the stamped image on the second card. I used a little Lemon Lolly in the flower center and added some of the Shiny Sequins, just like I did with the die cut flower above.

VIDEO: Stampin' Up! Ice Cream Swirl Gift Box + Bonus Project Ideas

What is your favorite flavor of ice cream? We always had ice cream with birthday cake when I was growing up. When I think of ice cream, I think of special celebrations with my family. The Ice Cream Swirl stamp set and coordinating dies are perfectly for celebrating those same occasions on paper -- whether you're creating cards, banners, scrapbook pages, or gift packaging -- the images in this bundle have you covered!
 
I designed this small gift box for a recent episode of Sunday Stamping with Susan & Julie. I wanted to highlight the unique die in the Ice Cream Swirl Dies that makes it quick and easy to create a tag. The cone-shaped die has a fold line in the middle. Just add a scoop (or two) with the stamped image or detailed die cuts!

Here are the measurements that I used. Change up the size of the paper or the scoring measurements for the sides to adjust the box to fit your needs.
 
Project Measurements:
  • 6" x 6" Lighter Than Air Designer Paper, scored at 1" on all sides
  • 5-15/16" x 5-15/16" Flirty Flamingo Cardstock, scored at 1" on all sides
  • 3" x 3" Lemon Lolly Cardstock
  • Flirty Flamingo, Bubble Bath, and Pecan Pie Cardstock to Die Cut
  • 1-3/4" Basic White cardstock
  • 1-1/2" Cello Bag or Clear Envelope
