    Slimline Flip Flap fold, using the Kindest Gnomes.

    Slimline Flip Flap fold Ohhh if you have not made a Slimline card or a Flip Flap you are missing out. Check out this Slimline Flip Flap fold. It is the perfect mix of the two. The Storybook Gnomes were the perfect match for this slimline. I was super excited to see if I would get the gnomes to climb the “rope” Using the Twine Essential pack to mix and “braid” the twine for out rope. Here is my favorite part. You could pick any of the four gnomes to have climbing the rope. My favorite one is the one peeking from under his hat. Using the DSP (patterned paper)…

    Fun Fold with New Horizon DSP and Bundle.

    Fun Fold with New Horizon Just wait until you see how this Fun Fold with New Horizon Suite works. Super simple and soo many possibilities to use it. This one works best, I think, with a DSP that does all the work. Well like this one… the water coloring on this DSP is amazing. It really is the star. And I want it to be. See just the simple stamping. All that was added here was the birds and sentiment. Isn’t it beautiful?? Wondering when I made this one?? Well this was part of the February Ding Dong Ditch. Can you believe it was that long ago?? I know I…

    Happy & Heartfelt Valentine card with Sweet Talk too.

    Happy & Heartfelt Valentine Ohhh how I love the Happy & Heartfelt Valentine card. Do you see that the beautiful patterns mixed together. Yes, I sure do love it!! But that is just the start of all the things. So much to look at, let’s start with the DSP. Sweet Talk is where all three of these papers come from. Have you gotten yours yet?? Well if not I have a plan for some non-valentine cards too!! Moving on to the cardbase. This “fun fold” is soo easy. All I did was cut off an inch of cardstock. Here is were you can see how that works. Using the Stitched…

    Sale-a-Bration Bird fun fold, Birthday card

    Sale-a-Bration Bird fun fold I am loving this Sale-a-Bration Bird fun fold. This card idea was from the Culver Library Class. Those lovely ladies LOVE fun folds. I especially like doing easy fun folds! This one uses NOTHING extra. But ohh, doesn’t it look fancy!! This Stamp set Friendly Hello is FREE with a $100 purchase (there is DSP too!). I would say this could be a simple stamping card, but there are just too many die cuts on it. Starting off with the Stitched So Sweetly dies. That is where the scalloped rectangles come from. That little leave die is from the Forever Flourishing dies. Think greenery on that…

    Second Christmas Mystery Card idea with Trees.

    Second Christmas Mystery Card Here is our Second Christmas Mystery Card Night card idea. Now I know that you are familiar with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Pine Tree punch. However, the Wintery 3D embossing folder is new in the annual catalog. I wonder if you have kinda bypassed it?? I know, I know, it is not winter yet, which is what make the Christmas in July events so much fun!! Some are wishing for cooler weather (like me) and some are planning Christmas cards already. Either way both are a welcome ideas here. Merry Christmas and the Just Jade “label” that is is on was made using the…

    Last June Alternatives and peek Here we are with the Last June Alternatives and peek at what we can look forward to for August. Starting with this fun fold. I am excited to say that I only added the 4 1/4 x 11 cardbase to this card. All the parts and pieces are from the kit. Ohh and the Craft White and Soft Succulent ink. Remember the Coffee Cup alternative?? The left over section is what I used on the front. I knew that it needed a pop of color so I used only two of the three sections that came in the kit. Using the stamps that came with…

    Super Fancy from Fun Fold Here is a Super Fancy from Fun Fold class. Have you gotten your Sweet Strawberry bundle yet?? I know that I will be using is a whole lot!! Let’s talk strawberry colors!! I have tried Flirty Flamingo with Real Red for this card. However, I have also used Calypso Coral and Cherry Cobbler. One more combo that I need to try is Real Red and Cherry Cobbler. Which to me is the obvious color combo. Although it really would not have a ton of contrast. Wanting to show you a little how the fold works. Yes, there really is a lot of cardstock and DSP…

    Envelope Fun Fold yes an easy one from class.

    Envelope Fun Fold yes an easy one Here is an Envelope Fun Fold yes, an easy one from Fun Fold Class. I do really like this one. Another that uses a regular cardbase. I wanted to try and mix a little of the soon to be retiring items with a few new. I will share more about that. The fold really is perfect and very well could be a gift card holder. I would put the gift card holder on the bottom flap. It really is easy, just add a piece of scrap to the left or right side. DONE!! Dontcha love that flower. The technique is called Two Step.…

    Pop Out Fun Fold with a new In Color

    Pop Out Fun Fold I want to share the third Pop Out Fun Fold card. This one completely reminds me of summer. Funny how that works because the stamp set is called Shaded Summer. hahaha. I am going to say that this card is not easy. However, very much worth trying to figure out. You can always head over to my Facebook Live and catch the replay. No worries because I have several photos that will help you create this card too. I bet you are wondering what that little “stamp” sized punch is from. Grab your rectangular postage stamp punch. All you need is a little scrap and punch…

    First of the Fun Fold Cards, this is an easy one!

    First of the Fun Fold Cards Here is the First of the Fun Fold Cards. I want to say that this one is one of the EASY ones too! My favorite part is that you use a regular cardbase to start. If you have done any fun (fancy) folds you know that most take a TON of paper. You might need to start with 12 x 12 paper. UGGHH, right?? Not this one. What does that mean?? Well you still get two cards from one piece of 8 1/2 x 11 piece of cardstock. Which is a win when you do not have a lot of colors or cardstock in…

    Fun Fold Treat Box, because candy is necessary!!

    Fun Fold Treat Box Okay, I just start off with saying chocolate is needed for the Fun Fold Treat Box. As you can see there is LOTS of it in this little box. I also want to add this box is from scrap of one of the fun folds that we made. Yes, no scraps for this one!! WooHOO. Even the decorating is from the scrap bin. I do love when you can create such cute ideas without cutting a BIG full piece of cardstock. However, if you need to make several then this would yield two boxes from one piece. I used a few different items here… The leaves…

    Last of Mystery Card Night Here is the Last of Mystery Card Night from May. She sure is a cutie, right?? Remember the theme was farm animals. Yes, I do think that a rabbit is a farm animal. I justify this because they get shown at the 4H fair. This stamp comes from the soon retiring Springtime Joy stamp set. The butterflies are a bonus from this stamp set. Would you not agree?? Out colors here are Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green. Using the same colors the rabbits flowers and leaves. How?? Well, do not forget that there are TWO different watercolor pencils packs. Assortment one has the Daffodil…

They all were slightly different in that some had Snails and some had Mushrooms. All the coloring was slightly different too. The background is the Snail Mail DSP. You know it was difficult picking just one. Which is your favorite?? The Snail or the Mushrooms (below)?? For this snail, I used the Petal Pink, Calypso Coral, and Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends. The Mushrooms turned out super cute. I did however use a lot of Stampin’ Blend colors for these. Here is the…

    From February’s Team Meeting This card from February’s Team meeting was inspired by the card in the middle. I do love butterflies, shocker. However, that middle card is from a bazillion years ago. Okay, maybe not but close, really!! All of that product is sadly retired. Here is a question for you, do you keep cards to “C.A.S.E.” at a later date? I be you are wondering what CASE means, Copy And Selectively Edit. This fold was fun to figure out the first time. The second time was a piece of cake. No, it did not matter that it had been a bazillion years. It was all about the measurements…
