Colorful Season Extended Fold

Posted by on Jul 1, 2017 in Birthday, Creative Folds

This gorgeous extended fold card was created with the Colorful Season stamp set and the Marbled Background stamp set.  The Marbled Background looks like the shaving cream technique and is so easy to use and create backgrounds in a flash.  Colorful Season is an amazing stamp set that can be used for all seasons and numerous occasions.  I left this inside of this card blank so I can decide on the occasion when I need the card. This creative fold was inspired by Linda Bauwin.  I made my Thailand swap card using this fold so you’ll be sure to want to see that one as well.  I will be posting that card from Thailand after our swap. In tomorrow’s post, I will be sharing the July promotions, which I’m sure you won’t want to miss!  Thanks for visiting today!  See you...

Joy Fold

Posted by on Jun 28, 2017 in Creative Folds, Other

This Joy Fold card was one of two Creative Folds I shared with stampers this month.  Sharing Sweet Thoughts, the 2017-18 Ronald McDonald stamp is featured on this card.  Dapper Denim Color Theory DSP, Layered Circle Framelits, a little coloring and a few embellishments, made this lovely card come together.  The circle of hearts on the bottom left corner of this card are raised with dimensionals so the corner of the Joy Fold tucks underneath. Here’s a view of the inside.  The right flap could also have a layer of Whisper White with room to add more images or maybe a nice poem. The lady bugs are so adorable and the strawberries, when colored with Stamp ‘n Write markers really come alive! July is just around the corner, and I’m excited to share with new some amazing news!  First of all, as last year, for all purchases in July, you may earn coupons for free product in August.  I’ll be sharing more details about this promo very soon!  And finally, the BEST news is an incredible promotion for anyone wishing to join the Stampin’ Up family!  The special is the best I have ever seen in all the years I’ve been a Stampin’ Up Demonstrator–the deal is even better than during Sale-a-bration, which I always thought was a great deal! Come back tomorrow for more details on both of these upcoming promotions!  I am so excited!   Thanks for visiting...

Pop-Out Butterfly Birthday!

Posted by on Apr 24, 2017 in Birthday, Creative Folds, Retiring

Today’s share is one of two Creative Folds that stampers will be learning how to make today at my Creative Folds Class.  This creative fold was shared by Linda Bauwin, although the design is my own. I had a lot of fun designing this card and surely am planning to make more!  When you remove the belly band, and open this gate fold card, the inside of the card pops out!  It is beautiful! Did you know that Watermelon Wonder (2015-2017 In Color) and also the Papillon Potpourri stamp set used to create this card are retiring?  All retiring items are only while supplies last so if these are on your wish list, be sure to order soon to avoid disappointment.  Many items are already depleted so check your list today!

Bold Butterfly Creative Fold

Posted by on Apr 4, 2017 in 3D, Creative Folds

Today’s share is a Creative Fold featuring the Bold Butterfly thinlits and the Watercolor Wings.  This project was inspired by Linda Bauwin.  The colors used on this card are Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant. Would you like to make this card?  If so, then plan to attend my April Creative Folds class  on April 24.  You can check my calendar for more details. I’m embarrassed to admit this was the first time I used the Watercolor Wings stamp set–it was so much fun, I can’t believe I didn’t play with this set sooner!  This stamp set is photopolymer and each butterfly is stamped 3 times, each time with a different stamp.  I also played with some other colors so will share more samples another time. April is my Birthday Month so this is the month of my BIG Retirement sale scheduled for April 29.  Plan to attend as this will be my biggest and best sale ever!  Mark your calendar today. Thanks for visiting...

Hey Check Fun Fold!

Posted by on Mar 30, 2017 in Creative Folds, Other, Sale-a-bration 2017

Today’s share is a Double Z-Fold featuring Hey Chick,  a fun Sale-a-bration stamp set that is FREE with a $60. purchase. Unfortunately, March 31 is the last day of Sale-a-bration so if you don’t have this stamp set and would like it, there’s only 24 hours left to place your order and get this stamp set for FREE! This Double Z-fold was a lot of fun to create so let me give you just a few tips!  To create the fence boards, I took two identical pieces of Designer Series Paper from the Serene Scenery DSP Stack and glued them onto a piece of Soft Suede cardstock to make the boards just a little heavier.  Then I cut the boards 3/4″ wide and cut lengths as needed.  I didn’t get to color all the chickens, but the two I colored were fun and I loved how they turned out! Thanks for visiting my blog!  I’ll be back tomorrow with another exciting...
