Hi! How has your week been so far?

I hope it’s been fun & productive, but if it’s been a bit blah, then perhaps today’s project & the fact the Stampin’ Up! Bonus Days has arrived, will help to brighten it just a little….

Now we are supposed to be in the middle of winter here in Sydney, but the weather has been more like spring, & so I’ve been inspired to play around with some bright, bold colours & create an early springtime garden of my very own.

I also decided to try out a new card/fold style, called the Joy fold. A Joy fold card looks really impressive, & complicated, when it is in fact, quite simple to make….I mean I managed to make it, so it can’t be that difficult 😉

Top Tip: Cut all the pieces first & put them aside in small groups to make assembling the card easier & quicker. 

As you can see from my pics below, this card opens out to reveal a hidden panel where you can write a message. If you needed more space, you could easily cut & add some extra Melon Mambo & Whisper white cardstock to the inside of the Night of Navy panels.

I had loads of fun playing with the coordinating Abstract Impressions Stamp Set, Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper & the Springtime Thinlits dies. These products are all a part of the Garden Impressions suite, which made it much easier to pull it all together.

In fact I let the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper guide me in my colour choices.

Top Tip: On the back of each pack of Designer Series Paper is a list of coordinating Stampin’ Up! colours. It’s a super handy reference tool & it takes the guess work out of trying to match up colours. 

By following the colour guide, I was able to stamp the flowers in Melon Mambo, Calypso Coral, Mango Melody, & Soft Sea Foam.
