Easy Z-Fold!

Posted by on Aug 27, 2018 in Big Shot, Birthday, Techniques, Thanks

Today’s share is a beautiful, easy Z-Fold that stamper’s made in the August Creative Folds class.  This fold was shared by Ronda Wade, so I chose the Tranquil Textures Designer Series Paper to make a masculine card and the Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to make for a special lady. The size of the DSP is 5 1/4″ x 8″, which is scored at 2″ and 4″.  The back section of DSP is glued onto an5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″ piece of coordinating cardstock.  The Z-Fold on this card shows the DSP off beautifully! The octopus stamp was sponged with Mint Macaron and Tranquil Tide and cut out with the coordinating die.   The flowers on the second card front from the Pop of Petals, were stamped on scrap Very Vanilla with Calypso Coral Classic Ink and punched out with the coordinating Four-Petal Flower Punch. Stampers loved these cards as I did!  In addition to making these cards, we also made two cards using the Rubber Band Technique below: Do you love these cards?  If you’d like to get fresh new crafting ideas, consider attending some stamping classes and get a chance to play with new stamps and products besides having fun with friends and making new friends.  Feel free to check my calendar for class updates and pick a class you like. Thanks for visiting today!  Have an amazing...

Animal Outing Fun Fold

Posted by on Jul 5, 2018 in Babies & Kids, Big Shot, Birthday

Today’s fun fold card created by my friend, Maureen, was a swap I received and the Creative Getaway last week-end.  I love all the details of this card and I also love the Animal Outing Bundle which includes the stamp set and coordinating Dies to cut out all the animals. I also used this bundle with the Adult Special Needs Card Class I teach and everyone loved it!  Maureen added additional texture to the front of this card with the Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF). This is a great bundle to create cards for kids, however, the cuteness of this bundle appeals to many!  Have you got a copy of the new catalogue?  If not, and you would like one, I’d be happy to give you a complimentary copy on your request. Thanks for visit8ing today.  Happy...

Happy Birthday!

Posted by on Jun 15, 2018 in Big Shot, Birthday

Today’s share was one of June team swap cards, created by Shannon Gates Basket Weave TIEF, Love What You Do Designer Series Paper, Stitched Shapes Framelits, Pearlized Doilies Whisper White and Grapefruit Grove Cardstock. All the elements of the sentiment piece were stamped with the Stamparatus.  This is such an amazing tool, you can create as many cards as you wish and they’ll all be identical!  If you miss ink on any stamp or section, you can easily re-ink and re-stamp and the positioning will always be perfect.  You can also use different colors if you wish.  I am so in love with this tool! Last week I did a Cardmaking event with 80 Grade 2 children, four classes of 20 each and all the cards looked identical!  It was absolutely amazing!  I had my friend, Sabina, also Stampin’ Up Demonstrator help as well as 2-3 parent/teacher helpers in each class. If you haven’t got your own Stamparatus yet, and you don’t have a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator, I’d be happy to help you with all your crafting needs.  You can order the Stamparatus and anything else you might be needing from my online store and have it shipped right to your door or simply send me an e-mail or call me with your order.  If placing an Online Order, please use Hostess Code JF7BRZ4P to have your name entered to earn Hostess Rewards.
