Happy Anniversary

Posted by on May 3, 2017 in Uncategorized

Today’s card is an original, inspired by a photo I saw in a crafting magazine.  The card base is Melon Mambo with the coordinating Pop of Pink Designer Series Paper. This design is really easy to create: Cut a piece of DSP 4″ x 8″ and score on the long side at 4″. Then make a small pencil mark on the right side (short side) at the 2″ mark. Draw a pencil line from the 2″ mark to the 4″ score line. Make a second pencil mark from the 2″ pencil mark on the right to the top left corner of the DSP. Cut the wedges off and score on the 4″ score line. Layer on your card, add the greeting of your choice and you’re done! To add a little extra texture, you could emboss the Basic Black layer, as I did with the Stars embossing folder.  When I posted this photo, I noticed the alignment of the wedge was slightly off.  When you make yours, I know you’ll make the edges flush.  I used Tombow Multi purpose glue and it shifts a little when first placed.  I like this option, but you must be careful for the first few minutes until the glue is set. Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...

Lift Me Up

Posted by on Dec 29, 2016 in Uncategorized

Lift Me Up stamp set and Up & Away Thinlits (Occasions 2017) were used to create this fun fold card!  It is not the standard card style.  The card base is 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″.  Additional layers are 1/4″ smaller.  The flap on this card is what makes it interesting.  As you can see, the flap lifts up and your message is inside!  Although I’ve had this bundle for a while, this was my first play date with the Lift Me Up Bundle and I totally love it! You’ll be sure to see more great samples using this Bundle real soon!  If you would love to see first hand, some great new samples, plan to come to my Occasions Catalogue Kickoff!  For more details about this event, check my calendar of events.  While customers are not yet able to purchase from the Occasions catalogue till January 4, this is the perfect time to check out the Year End Sale that is on right now and get some amazing deals! Thanks for visiting today.  Happy...
