Petal Palette Gate Fold Card

This months theme is Sale A Bration or Occasions catalog creations.  So I chose a Petal Palette Gate Fold Card using the Petal Passion DSP and the Gray Shimmer Ribbon from the Sale A Bration pack.  Be sure and follow the links through hop, leave nice comments, and enjoy!

 

 

 

 

 

 

To make the base for a gate fold card simply start with an 8.5″ x 5.5″ piece of cardstock.  Score at 2 1/8″ in from EACH end, this makes the folds meet in the middle.  For the two DSP panels cut at 5 1/4″ x 1 7/8″.  Create any decorative focal point(s).  I also like to have some way to hold the card closed, usually a bow or embellishment.  Remember to make your envelope pretty!

Sweet Little Something Masking Technique Easter Card

I simply adore this Sweet Little Something Masking Technique Easter Card!  Stampin’ Up! has been creating a few photorealistic stamp sets and they are simply amazing!  My daughter has a bunny just like this from Build A Bear, so of course I had to get the stamp set!

I show in the video how I create a simple mask which lets me stamp one bunny “behind” the other.  Masking is a great technique that can be used with just about anything and creates depth in a card without adding layers.

Stampin' Up! Truly Tailored Birthday Card

Welcome to the 2018 Kre8tors Blog Hop! I’m so excited to be part of this fun collaboration with fellow demonstrators. This month’s theme is Birthdays and  I can’t wait to show you my project!  I love the classic, clean look of this Stampin’ Up! Truly Tailored Birthday Card.

The baseis A2 size Cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″, scored and folded in half at 4.25″.  The vanilla layer is 5.25″ x 4″ and the True Gentleman DSP is cut at 4.5″ x 3.5″.  Finally, the small Very Vanilla layer is 4″ x 2 5/8″.  I did fussy cut and pop up the mustache and used fine tip glue to make it “glossy”.

Remember to decorate the envelope!

Eclectic Expressions 2018 Sale A Bration Round 2

This Eclectic Expressions 2018 Sale A Bration Round 2 set is for the March 2018 Stamp N Hop Blog Hop!  I am sharing from Washington State, US.    Enjoy!  Be sure to visit all the other links in this international hop and leave a nice comment!

I loved all the fun background elements, I thought they were just perfect for all kinds of cardmaking!  I started with an A2 card base in Lemon Lime Twist cut at 8.5″ x 5.5″.  Score and fold in half at 4.25″.  The Daffodil Delight cardstock layer is cut at 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″, and the white embossed layer is cut at 5.25″ x 4″.  I used the 4 smallest dies from the circle framelit set to cut out the DSP and the stamped images.

Remember to make your envelope pretty!
