SU Perennial Birthday Diagonal Split Card Video Tutorial

March 19, 2018

Happy Monday, friends!
It’s funny how I have been making cards for over 15 years now
but some older techniques are new to me since I have never used some of them!
I tried out the Diagonal Split technique on this card using the SU Perennial Birthday stamp set.

I made a video for you showing how I made this fun card.
I have a few shadows lurking since I am still working on lighting at night…



Here are the measurements for cutting the split out of the front  4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ panel of the card:



Thanks for buzzing by, friends…

SU Hold on to Hope Fun Fold Video Tutorial

March 5, 2018

Can you tell I LOVE the SU Hold on to Hope Bundle?

Here is another fun fold card using the bundle with a video showing you how to make it!



I used the Happy Easter sentiment from the SU Sweet Little Something stamp set-
the one with the photorealistic stuffed bunny:)


I think if you didn’t use the Happy Easter sentiment, you could add in
“Celebrating One of God’s Most Remarkable Creations…You”
and it could be a wonderful Confirmation or Baptism card,  what do you think?

SU Cake Soiree Fun Fold Video Tutorial

February 5, 2018

When I got out my SU Cake Soiree Bundle, I wanted to find a way to pop the cake up off the card in an interesting way. It ends up, I was inspired by my SU Country Livin’ and Paisleys and Posies Fun Fold card! I just ommitted the second folding part and came up with this…

Here is a video I made to show you how to make the fun fold:


I used Silver Foil for the cake pedestal for the cards above cards to coordinate with the silver embossing on the Sweet Soiree Specialty Designer Series Paper. On the card below, I used Berry Burst Cardstock for the pedestal.

It lays flat to fit in an A2 sized envelope.

Here is the back where you can write your message:

P. S. Guess who had a stray ink mark and covered it with a flower?

Here is how you create a  Bridge Fold Card:

Notice the framelit that cut out the fancy cross below is an additional one that does not coordinate with any image-
how nice to have that, huh? I inlaid the cross in the cut out I made with another die after stamping the foliage.

Here is a simple way to finish off the back to write a message of encouragement or sympathy.

The Hold on to Hope Stamp Set is a versatile one that offers a variety of uses
because of these two sentiments-
