*Red Sky at Night*

Hope you are all having a good day.

Unfortunately I'm sick with a *flu bug* at the moment, some days have been worse then others, but I managed to get into my craft room on one of the *good* days and this is the card I made.

Hope you like it.

My inspiration came from this photo that I came across of a beautiful Alberta sunset.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to visit.
Bye for now!

Good afternoon to all my visitors!

I love *scene* cards, and Ive been watching tons of videos lately, hoping to learn how to do them.....and it seems to me that really, anything goes!
So I decided to just go for it!

Here's what I came up with.

First I stamped the trees, then without re-inking the stamp I stamped again to make it look as if there are trees in the background.  Then I added the mask for the moon, using a post-it note.  Next, I sponged on the colours, using light blue, denim blue and lavender. Then came the die cut deer and the sentiment, both popped up on dimensionals.  Lastly, I layered with black & pink and added it to a black card.  
The finished card measures approx. 5.25" x 6".

Thanks for popping in today, hope you like what you've seen and I hope you have a *lovely rest of your day*!

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.
