rhinestones in the middle of the flowers made from the Tree Builder Punch!

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?

SU Petal Palette Marina Mist

February 2, 2018

Happy Friday, friends!

I took a little liberty  with Cecile’s  Freshly Made Sketches Challenge # 322
and interpreted the sketch with an oval as the focal point on my card.

I also decided to share it with Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge #135  “All You Need is Love.”

 

I used a soft yet bright at the same time color palette of
Marina Mist and Melon Mambo with Pear Pizzazz added in. Notice that this delicate feminine card has a blue chickadee, too! I colored the pearls in the middle of the flowers melon mambo using my Stampin’ Blends. I love how easy it is to color pearls and rhinestones with alcohol markers!

Hold on to Hope Bundle found in the Occasions Catalog.

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
