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.

Butterflies for you

Most of  the cardstock in this card came from the Treasures line.  I love it because it has a slight texture.  The Green is Grass and the tan is Crafty Brown.  Actually the two patterned papers are the same color cardstock.  I have some really big background stamps that I have not used much.  There was a curved handle you were supposed to use with them, but it never really worked well.  Now I have a Misti tool for making sure stamping comes out perfectly and I am back into using them.
The cream colored piece on this card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory.  The stamps on the Ivory piece are from Stampin' Up

Get Well Soon


This is a card I made for a dear uncle.  I am just addicted to my new cricut.  This was one of the projects and what better paper to use than the many colors and perfect heavy weight paper from Paper Temptress.

Every piece for this project is from the Malermo Pearle and Mica Metallic line because they both have some sheen to them.  I am going to start with Malermo Pearle line.  The beautiful blue of the base is Abysse Malermo Pearle.  The red lines are Vermillion Malermo Pearle.  I used Emeraude Malermo Pearle for the green lettering.

Because there are so many colors in the Mica Metallic line it was perfect for the rest of the card.  The yellow small dots are Amber Mica Metallic.  All the pink is Rose Quartz Mica Metallic.  Last of all I used Flame Mica Metallic to cover the whole back and shine through for the well.
