JOY OF SETS BLOG HOP - EASEL FOLD CARD



Happy New Year everyone and welcome to a new Blog Hop from Joy of Sets members for 2019.  For those of you that don't know Joy of Sets - it is a facebook group I set up in 2017 when  I was a Stampin Up Demonstrator to be able to showcase retired stamps as well as current stamps from the SU range.  I am no longer a Demonstrator but the group is for all who love Stampin Up and as we have grown we have included a lot of other stamp companies that we love to ink.  If you would like to join the Facebook Group click on the logo above.

Our Blog Hop has been organised this month by Andrea Parr who has taken over from me and made the Blog Hop her own baby.  And what a great job she has done with lots of lovely inspiration for you all.

Her theme this month was Easel Fold card with a slight difference of using a free product.  I used some stamps I got free with a magazine.

My card is an Easel Box card which was inspired by someone on You Tube who didn't give her name or her blog which is a shame.  I used Stampin Up Soft Sky for the base card stock and some retired DSP Naturally Eclectic.  I love the colours in these papers.



 The box was made first with its little drawer so you can add some goodies  I've used a retired Antique Brad from SU for the drawer handle.  The ribbon is some retired SU.





The card is then made and clued to the top of the box - the stamps were free from a craft magazine and were small enough to use on this little box.  The buttons help to weigh it down so it stays and the little button above the Happy Birthday acts as the stop for the easel card.

For more inspiration for easel cards pop along to Andrea Parr next.

Love this so much. I still have quite a bit of that DSP left it was one I couldn't ever find the right use for. I've been inspired to revisit it and use some stash up. Looking forward to the other contributions. <3

This is wonderful and a great way to use the DSP. I need to make a few to have on hand.
I almost did one of these.

Great idea to place the easel on top of a box. Perfect for a birthday, anniversary etc. I agree with you about the DSP. I have almost used the whole pack up and have only scraps left
