    Hey There Latte Love Fun Fold card idea

    Hey There Latte Love Are you needing an easy fun fold. I am loving the Little Latte Suite, for the Hey There Latte Love card. I bet you are shocked by that. NOT!! Ohhh, and there is a video on this one too. I will say that there is some fussy cutting. Why??? Because those cups needed to be added to the side/inside of this card. There is a die cut for the cup tops. However, the front three are fussy cut. Wanted to be sure to share a few different pages so that you can see all the different designs. I can see this as a possible Father’s Day…

    Cheerful Daisy Fun Fold from June class

    Cheerful Daisy Fun Fold This was a Humm Dinger of a card. However, the Cheerful Daisy Fun Fold was soo fun and well worth it!! This is a simple stamping, but not card. I love stamping the flowers and leaves from the Cheerful Daisies stamp set. We used several different colors too. As you can see by these two photos… Now you know why this one was a Humm Dinger!! There were several parts. Lots of scoring and that is why I was trying to keep the rest more simple. I know, I hear you it sure does not look simple. Well, you know… Here are the colors, Highland Heather,…

    Sweet Citrus Book Fold two different ways…

    Sweet Citrus Book Fold Ahhh, the perfect summer card!! The Sweet Citrus Book Fold is the one. However, I could not decide if I liked it with the Daffodil Delight as the card base or the Granny Apple Green. How about you?? All the colors are the same only flipped around a bit. The patterned paper, DSP that is, is from the Inked Botanicals 6 x 6 paper pack. That color is technically Crushed Curry, but soo easy to lighten up with the Daffodil Delight. I did a couple simple things to the Limes noice the color variation on the rinds?? That is where I used my Mini Blending Brush.…

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)…
