Motions & Folds Card Hop

Fifteen Wonderful Blog Stops on the Motions and Folds  Card Hop!

If you are here for the Motions & Folds hop you are at the right place. If you just happened by then down below is the list for the hop, I am your last stop. So make sure you go back and start with Ellen so you don't miss a thing. 
Thanks for coming and we hope you enjoy the hop!!


Here is the lineup:

15. Elaine at www.expressionsbyelaine.blogspot.com/ You are here

I have made 3 cards

My first card is the accordion card, I found this on YouTube at Paynete if you would like to see the video click on the link. 


The measurements are:


5.5 X 11 in. cardstock
Score across the 5.5 side @ 1.5, 3, 5.5 & 8 in.
Then fold M, V, M, V (mountain & valley)
Then for the decorative papers cut at .25 smaller.
The wrap piece is 7 X 1.5 and the decorative paper is .25 smaller.
The punch on the wrap is Martha Stewart Edge Punch Traditional Scallop  and the stamp is Stampin Up - "So Happy for You" sets- this was one of the free with a $50 order stamps. For the flower I used the Imaginisce I-Top Tool & Imaginisce I-Top Brad Daddies Brad Blanks 16mm, for the middle and the Imaginisce I-Top Paper Punch 16-mm, Small & Imaginisce I-Top Paper Punch 22-mm, Medium for the petals. The paper is from Big Lots.










My second card is a matchbook card I got this idea from The Cardmaker's Workbook. I really liked this because as a kid I started collecting matchbooks it was a great way to get a souvenir from wherever we visited & they were free.


The measurements I used are:


8.75  X 5 Cardstock
Score along the 5" side at .5, 4.75 & 4-13/16th.
Fold all in the same direction to make a matchbook. For the outside, the first layer is 4.75 X 8", the center square (brown) is 2.5 X 2.5, then (green) 2.25 X 2.25 for the flower I cut it out of the paper that I used on the rest of the card, then for the very center I used the Imaginisce I-Top Tool with the Imaginisce I-Top Paper Punch & the Imaginisce I-Top Brad Daddies Brad Blanks
The inside paper is 4" x 4.75 & the inside strips are 1-1/8 x 4.75 & 15/16 x 4.75, for these I didn't measure the width I just cut them, you can make them whatever width you want. The eyelets are from StampinUp (eyelet stack bold brights #2) I have had these for a long time. For the flower & green center square I used StampinUp "Close to Cocoa" around the edges and used StampinUp Dimensionals under the brown square and the flower.
The paper is from the Paper Studio "Serendipity"  that I got from Hobby Lobby. I just love this paper because all of it coordinates and I have a tough time coordinating some patterns, so this really made it easy for me. This can be made smaller as well, and use it as a gift tag.












And for my last card #3, I made a Spinner Card 


The measurements are 8.5 X 5.5 folded in half to 4.25 x 5.5,
the first layer is 5.25 x 4 all paper is Bazzill Basics cardstock from Big Lots, StampinUp inks & stamps. This stamp set is an old set "Fish Frolics" which most of my stamps are older. My spinner section is 5 x 1.25 and I used the StampinUp word window punch for the slider hole. For it to slide take 2 pennies and place a large dimensional between them so it looks like an oreo then place another dimensional on top then place the "fish on top" or whatever you choose for your card. Then use dimensionals to pop up the spinner section then slide the penny in, super easy. You can also find these on YouTube just type in spinner card. 










I left my cards blank so I have options as to what I want to use them for.


Thanks so much for hopping with us today, I hope you had a great time. I am the last stop so if you missed anyone the list is above.
Now what you have all been waiting for..... Candy (ooohhh aaahhh) I am giving away the StampinUp Word Window Punch & a pack of SU Dimensionals, so you can make your own spinner card!





Ok now you know what to do, and make sure you leave me a way to get a hold of you if you are the winner!!
I will accept comments through the end of Sunday night Feb. 27,
I will pick the winner Monday.
Have a great weekend:)

  33. You really kept busy making all these great cards! I love making cards that fold out or move. So much more fun. I haven't made a spinner card but I really like the fish for a boy's card and I have three grandson's with birthdays coming up. Time to get busy!
    Thank you for sharing! :) What a great blog hop!

  34. Elaine you did a great job on these! I love the fishy spinner! I will try that one! I have a $15 tripod from Target. I sit or stand with it between my knees. I bend it at the joint so it's right above my project. That's it! Does that make sense? I'll show you in a video soon;)
