RemARKable Stampers Pinworthy Blog Tour: Shape Up!

Welcome to the RemARKable Stampers Pinworthy Blog Tour!  This month's theme is "Shape Up!"  All of my projects today will feature different shapes:  circles, triangles, squares, hexagons, and rectangles. There are several fun stamp sets that feature these shapes in the 2014-2015 Stampin' Up! catalog.

My first card is a Double Z-Fold card.  The card base is 12 x 5 1/2" that is scored at 2", 4", 8", and 10".  I used Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Bermuda Bay, and Tangerine Tango ink to stamp fun and funky shapes on Whisper White panels.  The shapes are from the Geometrical stamp set and the What's Your Type stamp set.

I closed the card with a belly band, and added 2 rhinestones to the word Hooray.  You could also add candy buttons instead of rhinestones, if you would like.

My second project features a funky fold -- a triangle easel fold.

"Mild-mannered" regular-looking card......

...transforms into a fun easel card!
This card is easy to make.  Start with a 4 1/4 x 11" card base scored at 5 1/2".  Place the front panel of the card in your paper trimmer, and line up the upper left corner and lower right corner on the cutting track.  Use your score blade to score the diagonal.  Fold, then include a greeting attached to the inside with Stampin' Dimensionals to hold your card open.

The key is your image on the front of the card should not have a right or wrong direction because it will flip when you open the card.  I will write a quick tutorial and take some more photos to show you all of the steps to the fun card.
