Special Folds Projects
Hi Everyone,
Well for Monday class today, I decided to do some special folds cards. I usually don't do these types of projects, but I know they are popular and stampers love them. I think I've also become a fan now that I committed a whole class to them. I hope you enjoy. 

This "Z Fold" card uses a base piece of cardstock 4 1/4" x 11". The inside DSP piece measures 3" x 5 1/4". Two pieces of DSP are cut at 2 1/2" x 4". The front base measures 4 1/4" x 3" and each layer is 1/4" less each layer. The white inside is the same size as the white on front.

This "Triangle Fold" card uses a base piece measuring 3 1/2" x 10". Score at 3 1/2" and 7". You will have 3 sections. From the upper left corner, score diagonally to the 3 1/2" score line. Repeat on opposite side diagonally to the 7" score line. Be sure both diagonals go the same direction. Cut a piece of  DSP 3 1/4…

A Little Spring During This Winter with  Helping Me Grow by Stampin' Up!

I recently had a fun "shoebox" swap with some friends. We each designed a card and then prepped enough supplies for everyone to make. This event is so fun because everyone gets a chance to get creative and design a project. This is the card I created with the Helping Me GrowPhotopolymer set by Stampin' Up! This set is great to use for many techniques. I kept my flowers gray and allowed the water colored background to stand out. I also love the Dapper Denim ribbon

 For this project I used Marina Mist cardstock and ink. Archival Basic Grayand Daffodil Delight cardstock and ink as well. Whisper White cardstock is used for the top layer.You will also want a Stampin' Spritzer and your clear block any size you'd like.
 Stamp the Daffodil ink first directly on half of the clear block. Then do the same with Marina Mist. It's fine if it covers some of the Daffodil Delight. Spritz the block wi…
Designer Tin of Tags Kit Beautiful Cards at your Finger Tips

The Stampin' Up! Designer Tin of Cards Kit is one of the best that has been offered. I brought mine out for a Monday stamping class and we had a blast. In this kit, you get supplies to create 16 beautiful cards, 4 of each design. These cards are so rich and full of dimension. For this kit, you can also purchase the coordinating stamp set, but I didn't have it, so I pulled out many other sets with sayings to customize our cards. Here are the final cards we created on Monday.

It was so fun when we tried to decide which design we liked best. Seeing the samples in the instructions did not do these justice. Each card we finished we claimed to "love it" and then the next one we did the same thing. Well we finally decided that this kit is the best ever and all 4 designs are fantastic.
