20190421_103447

I made up the lovely April 2019 Paper Pumpkin Kit, and I'm still designing with the gorgeous Sentimental Rose Stamp Set in this kit!! The BEST value of this subscription kit is the great stamp sets you receive and KEEP USING!

This is a Panel Fold card for a very special occasion!

20190421_103612

Panel Card: cut the card base 8-1/2" X 5-1/2" and score at 2" and 3-1/8" from each side. SIMPLE and stands well for display! This fold fits a Stampin' Up! medium envelope which I covered with Silver Foil Paper embossed with Petal Pair Embossing Folder #145656.

The roses were inked with Calypso Coral, Powder Pink, So Saffron and Highland Heather. The background on the side panels is Timeless Textures Stamp Set #140517 stamped in Gray Granite ink.

Chevron Fold

This cute design is a CHEVRON FOLD that I saw on Dawn Olchefske's BLOG!  She has excellent directions so I will not repeat them. When you select your designer paper for this technique, choose a paper with high contract on the two sides!

Baby Shower Challenge

20180913_155318

Grey and White isn't very exciting. That was my challenge when I offered to help my working daughter with a Baby Shower she is hosting soon. The shower is for TWINS - a boy and a girl. Well, I decided to add lots of texture, shine and glimmer! These are "Table Tents," which are the same on both sides.

20180913_155430

By adding a "W" of cardstock inside, I insured the tents would not collapse.

20180913_155453

The cute little critters are from A WILD THING Stamp Set #144344. The Teeny Tiny bows are from the FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES #147922 and cut six bows at once.20180913_155721

This TWINS Banner will hang on a white tablecloth on the food table. 20180913_155828

 Texture, shine, glimmer!!

20180910_163419

Mini canning jars with cute critters and vellum "grass" are accents for the food table.

20180910_163920

I attached the critters to floral wire and added a die cut tree from the same FARMHOUSE FRAMELITS DIES. So how did I do with a challenge of grey and white?? Your stamps are so versatile so use them beyond greeting cards! 

 


Gable Box goes Elegant

20180723_103437

Elegant Silver & Shimmer!! Mini Gable Boxes are SO HANDY: #146961 Lustrous White and #145568 Silver. I carefully opened the side seam of this box using an Exacto Knife. That enabled me to emboss each half of the box with the lovely NEW Tufted DYNAMIC Embossing Folder #146335!! It's a "WOW" with texture!!

20180723_103427

I finished off this tufted box with Silver Embossing Powder, Sparkle Glimmer Paper, Silver Foil Paper and 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edged Ribbon. Ready for GIVING! Try it!
