Hello Friends!
Hope you are all feeling good today.

I have a new card to show you.   It is a stacked die cut card by Jennifer Mcguire.  I followed Jennifer's video tutorial which you can find here.


I didn't have the same die as Jennifer used, but I think it turned out quite well with this one.  

If you look closely you can see the shimmer on the words, I used *Wink of Stella*


Here you can see how the die cut words are layered.

Thanks for dropping by today!

Triple Panel Card


Hello Friends!
Hope you are having a nice day.

I tried a different fold for this card....not sure of the name, I've seen it called a triple panel fold card, also a pop out card.  Whatever the name, it's a very fun and easy card to make.  I've included a tutorial below.

  The black polka dot paper is from the *Chalkboard Tableau* stack....a Hot Buy from Michaels.  I stamped the smaller white square with a stampin'Up stamp, sorry, don't know the name of it.
The cute bird is from the *Honeycomb Happiness* set, also from stampin'Up & coloured with Copic markers.  
The sentiment is from the *Wetlands* stamp set.

Here is a quick tutorial.

First, cut card stock to 8" x 5 1/2"

Score at 2" - 3" - 5" - 6"

Fold from the left.... valley - mountain - mountain - valley



Now we can cut the designer paper pieces as shown above...
3 pieces designer paper @  1½" x 5 ¼"
1 piece of card stock @  3½" x 3½"
1 piece designer paper @ 3¼" x 3¼"
1 piece of card stock @ 2⅝" x 2⅝"
1 piece designer paper @ 2½" x 2½"

Glue all the pieces, using whatever glue you prefer to use. I used dimensionals to pop up the top square piece.

Now you can decorate. I cut out a couple of flowers from the designer paper and stamped a sentiment, then popped these up with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today.

A New Fold!

Hi Friends,

Here's a cute card that I saw on Pinterest.


It is very easy to do and there's a video tutorial here

I don't have a 2" circle punch, so I used my scalloped 2" punch.  It is better to use the straight circle, then it doesn't get caught up when you open your card.


The papers are *Sweet Mint*  by Craftsmith  A *hot buy* from Michaels.  The flower die is *layered flower* from Penny Black. I used dimensionals for each of the 3 flower layers.  The stamp is from Stampin' up.





Thanks for stopping by.

Belleek Style Card!

Good morning!

I have another card to show you today.

I love this technique, known as Belleek, after the Belleek pottery in Ireland.
It has a look of porcelain, achieved by brayering ink on the inside of your embossing folder, then running it through your BigShot or Cuttlebug. 




I cut out the frame with one of my dies, as well as the flowers, leaves and scroll.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.



A closer look at the flowers

Thanks for stopping by today!
