Musical Season Extended Fold

Posted by on Sep 26, 2017 in Big Shot, Christmas, Creative Folds, Holiday | 0 comments

Today’s Extended Fold card was created with the Musical Season Bundle.  The Stitched Shapes (oval die) provided a nice background for the French Horn. This creative fold gives additional space to add extra elements.  The instruments on the centre panel are stamped with Night of Navy ink on Whisper White cardstock and then cut out with the coordinating framelit.  The border on the right side of the card was created with two stamps–of course, you need the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the images but it is so perfect!  You can’t even tell it’s two stamps. Thirty one stampers created this card at the Holiday Escape & Create Retreat last week-end!  Out craft room was filled with excitement as everyone completed 20+ projects.  In addition, the prize patrol bell rang numerous times and the retreat bags could not contain all! I’ll be sharing more about this retreat in my next post!  Hope you can come back and take a look!  The next Holiday Escape & Create Retreat is confirmed for September 21-23, 2018 and eager stampers who attend this year, are planning to return. Thanks for visiting today!  Happy...

Vintage Leaves

Posted by on Sep 18, 2017 in Big Shot, Techniques | 0 comments

Vintage Leaves is one of my favourite fall stamp sets.  There is a wonderful assortment of different leaves in this set. This is just a wee peek at some fall leaves I made.  I started out with Whisper White cardstock and sponged various colors randomly on the entire sheet, including Daffodil Delight, Cajun Craze, Cherry Cobbler, Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Old Olive, etc.  Then I stamped the leaves on the sheet and cut them out with the coordinating framelits.  They are simply beautiful! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy crafting!  Hope to see you tomorrow!...
