Hello Everyone.  Happy Sunday!  Here is my card for today and all the cardstock is from Paper Temptress.
 
 The base is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  The sentiment and the butterflies are also from the Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.
 
The rest of the cardstock is from the Treasures line.  The golden is Butternut Orange.  All the beautiful green is Grass Treasures.  The brown is Crafty Brown.  All this cardstock has a texture to it which is beautiful for layers.

Z Box Fold

I am so excited about the cards on Split Coast Stamper the last couple of week.  I love cards that have different folds to them.  I would suggest watching the video for the because I found the written directions to be a little confusing.  I printed the directions and then added extra at places from the video. 

This is a birthday card for a little girl I know that was turning one.  The theme for her birthday party was owls.  The owl on the front has a little spring like thing behind it that makes it jiggle when you touch it.

Halloween Twist Gate Fold


I just love different folds in cards.  This was on Split Coast Stamper last week.  It is called a Twist Gate Fold.  I did do my angle a little differently, but this is how it worked.

All the solid cardstock is from Paper Temptress.  The beautiful dark orange is Treasures Mango Orange.  The white in the center and the ghost are Cryogen White which has a little bit of shimmer to it.  Just perfect for a ghost.  The black is Black Basis.  The patterned paper was just paper that I had in my stash.

Grunge for You


This is my card for Paper Temptress today.  Got out my Stampin' Up set Gorgeous Grunge to do this card.

The base of the card is Neenah Super Smooth Green.  I thought Black Basis would be a great layer to set off the main image. The stamping for the main is image is on Cryogen White.  I just love that little bit of shimmer.

I stamped the flowers on Neenah Super Smooth GreenBaby Girl Pink Basis and Light Yellow Basis.  I still thought it needed a little sentiment so I added the For You in Baby Girl Pink Basis.

Have a beautiful creative day!!!

I made this card with one of my favorite Stampin' Up sets.  The stamp set is called Swirly Bird and the die set is called Swirly Scribbles.

I wanted the base to be a nice dark purple so Grape Jelly Pop Tones was perfect.  The second white layer is Cryogen White because I wanted a little bit of sheen.  I embossed this with a SU folder called softly falling.  The stamped swirls were from the Swirly Bird set.

The large swirl is Cotton Candy Pop Tones,  the medium is Blue Raspberry Pop Tones, and the small is Grapesicle Pop Tones.  I added some pearls for accent.

Happy Birthday

This is a stairstep card I made for an aunt.  You can actually make this card and do the measurements yourself.  I got a really good deal on a die so I used that.  It is nice because you run it through the Sizzix and you are done. 

The picture gives you an idea of what it looks like, but the real thing is so much more dimensional.
