Fun Fold Cards – Avid Inkers Team Meeting

At the end of June, members of the Avid Inkers Team met after a long break. It happened to be one of the member’s 50th birthday. She said she couldn’t think of a nicer way to celebrate her special day. That’s a lot to live up to but we had serious fun, including a rainbow birthday cake. It’s great that my team is also part of a bigger team which meets periodically.

We made two mystery projects, both fun fold cards, which were led by Vicki and Karen.

Vicki led the the project to create a Trifold Spanner Panel card. These are the landscape shaped cards. Karen led a projects to create a Pop Out Swing Card, which are portrait shaped. The pic above shows everyone’s cards. We had so much fun making them and they were all gorgeous (and FLORAL!)

This pic shows my version of Vicki’s Trifold Spanner Panel Card.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps: –Hand Penned (Front of Card Image) Art Gallery (greeting on second layer), Celebrate with Flowers (greeting on bottom layer)
  • Inks: – Highland Heather, Bumble Bee, Mossy Meadow, Memento Black,
  • Card: – Highland Heather, Bumble Bee, Whisper White, Window Sheet, Pansy Petals DSP
  • Tools: – Paper Trimmer, Paper Snips, aquapen

This pic shows my take on Karen’s Pop Out Swing Card. Notice that it has a panel stuck to the inside of the card front, which makes it operate much more smoothly than the traditional design of this card fold.

SUPPLIES:

  • Stamps: – Art Gallery, (front image ), Enjoy the Moment, (front greeting), Celebrate with Flowers (dragonflies and inside greeting- worked so well being vertical),
  • Inks: – Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Bumble Bee
  • Card: – Merry Merlot, Whisper White, Beauty of the Earth DSP
  • Tools: – Floral Gallery Dies, Banners Pick-A-Punch, Blending Brushes

Nettys Inkers Team Projects for June

EnjoytheMomentCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan25062021

I have really fallen behind with my posts but wanted to share the great cards we all made at our Team meet in June. This was a one of the projects I led which we all made. The faux ripped paper technique. I’ve always loved this technique and I cased this card straight from the current Annual Catalogue. I used the Enjoy the Moment Stamp Set, which is great for techniques, Misty Moonlight card and ink, Mint Macaroon, Crumb Cake and Memento Black inks.

HeyBirthdayChickCardStampinUpAnnetteMcMillan25062021

My swap – I couldn’t resist the Hey Birthday Chick Bundle. It just makes me chuckle every time I see a card made with it.

Karen used a bleaching technique and the Fancy Phrases Stamp Set to create her swap card.

Vicki used the new Celebrate with Flowers Stamp Set and cased the catalogue, switching out the colour for one of the new In Colors, Soft Succulent. Love the white-embossed vellum.

Anne used A Good Man Stamp Set, with lovely colouring and layering.

I led another project using an old technique with shaving cream and reinkers to create our own patterned card. We used the results to create swaps for our next meet in July.

I hope you are inspired by the projects I have shared here. I would love to have you join my small, enthusiastic team. And, during the SaleABration promotion, you can earn even more rewards for joining my team. see link below.
