    Campology with Parakeet Party fun fold idea.

    Campology with Parakeet Party Continuing on the with the 2022-2024 In-Colors. How about this Campology with Parakeet Party and Shaded Spruce?? And for a BIG win a fun fold too!! I went back to a monochromatic look for the one. I really went through all our GORGEOUS greens to see what would go best. The Shaded Spruce really gets that Parakeet Party to POP!! I think that the Basic White inside does not hurt either. What do you think?? Using the Shaded Spruce ink for the background trees and the Evergreen border punch. Have you used that yet?? If not it really is pretty easy. I think a double or…

    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.

    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…

    July 2021 DDD part two I hope you are enjoying the July 2021 DDD part two. Today’s two cards are using all the parts from the Ephemera kit. Wondering what that is?? Well, basically it is all the foil and embellishments in one pack. Not only does it make it easy but it is affordable too. The Expressions in Ink Suite includes the Ephemera kit. 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…

A super easy fun fold at that. We also did this one for the Fun Fold class last month, here. With this idea it really makes the Snowman the focal point. Even with that simple DSP background. 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…

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…

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…

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…

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.…

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.

    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…

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.
