    Bonus July DDD card idea, Expression in Ink

    Bonus July DDD card Here is the Bonus July DDD card. I really loved the idea of using the flower die cut and matching it up with one of the “flowers” on the DSP. Here was the idea. I wanted to be able to give you flowers. The Expressions in Ink Suite ( DSP, Ephemera pack and bundle) to me is colorful and happy. Yes, it will bring a smile to your face too. Now I realize that not everyone like flowers. The DSP pack is not all about them. I love the movement of the alcohol color variation. Come on it is Cool!! In case you missed here are…

However if you want to purchase separately it is only $7. Inside you will find 5 sheets of foil pretties and a sheet of sequins with glue dots already. Using that kit to highlight the Happy Birthday sentiment. Using one outline section and what would…

Wondering about that super cute snowman?? He is from the Snowman Season stamp set. Which in case you are looking it also has a Snowman Builder punch. It punches the snowman from the envelope. Anyway, just a…

    First two Christmas in July Here are the First two Christmas in July cards. A reminder first, the Sheer Ribbon (returning favorite), Red Rhinestones and Tidings of Christmas DSP was all included. Let’s starting with the Sending Hugs stamp set. This really was my very first idea when I saw this stamp set. The hard part was how was I going to create that peek-a-boo part? hummm. You are going to want to add the Layering Diorama dies to your list. I know, I know, everyone is using them for ponds, water and things like that. Well, how about this??

    Girl’s Night Beauty of Friendship Here is just one of the Girl’s Night using Beauty of Friendship. Beauty of the Earth is the suite name. Included in the suite is stamp set, dies, embossing folder and DSP. I was wondering what to do, because there is no Happy Birthday stamp in this set. Here is how I solved that… Hey Birthday Chick. No, I do not need an excuse to pull that one out, haha. Although the Beauty of the Earth DSP could be the star on any card front. I wanted to be sure to highlight a couple different patterns. Yes, yes here I go mixing my pattern DSP…

    Kind People Simply Succulents, at Culver class.

    Kind People Simply Succulents I know that you are Kind People, Simply Succulents has the best sentiment!! The Simply Succulents stamp set has a die cut set also, Potted Succulents. That die set is where the diecut shape for the Kind People sentiment comes from. So many other wonderful dies in that set. Including and not limited to a full card front succulent “laser” looking image. SOOO COOL!! However this DSP (patterned paper) is from the new Bloom Where You’re Planted DSP pack. Yes, there was some strategic trimming included for this, so worth it. This was also a card that was created using the newest In-Colors. Both the Soft…

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 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 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…

Here is where the fun in fun fold comes in. Let me just say that really all you need is another long cut cardbase. It sure was fun to create and really after the scores are done. It too was pretty easy. Here is another fun add. It is a gift card holder.…

    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…
