Art Gallery Showstopper Card - Video Tutoiral

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a showstopper card for you and I do mean a show stopper.  This is a definite WOW card.  When I showed it to Charles last night his first word was "wow!"  He never has a reaction like that.  He most of the time just says that they are nice and pretty, but never a wow.  So, I know that it's differently a wow card.  Any way you can decided your self here's a look at the front of the card.

Daisy Lane Easy Fun Fold Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a fun and easy fun fold card.  I will be on my Facebook Page later today around 8pm CST demonstrating how to create this card on my weekly Facebook Live.  I will post the video back here after I am done.  This is a super easy card to do but looks hard.  It's really just a matter of layering everything together the right way.  Here's a look at my card.  



This card design doesn't take a lot of supplies and you can use some scraps that you already may have on hand to create this fun fold.  Which is a great way to use up your scraps and cardstock pieces that you may have on hand that you are not quite sure what to do with.  I love how the card has a small base that opens up to reveal the message.  But it will still stand to display for the person you are sending it to.  


And another great thing is that you still have room on the inside to write a personal message on the inside of the card.  Plus you have a stamped greeting on the inside.  I pulled the colors for my card from the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I used Bumblebee, Old Olive, Terracotta Tile, and Whisper White for my card.  They all play so wonderfully together.  This fun color combo has a very vintage fell to me.  


 I hope that you like today's card.  You can download the Free Resource that I mentioned before by clicking here.

Four Corner Flap Card - How To Video


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share the fun little card that I created during my Facebook Live on Wednesday night this week.  I created a fun little fun fold card inspired by Gloria Plunkett's design I found on Pintrest.  I loved this little card so much that I just had to make my own version of it.  Here's a look at my card that features the A Grand Kid Stamp Set and the Flowers For Every Season Designer Series Paper.  


I love this card for one reason because it showcases both sides of your designer series paper.  Which I love!  I I don't have to worry to much about which side I am going to use because you can see both sides.  Which is always a problem when you use Designer Series Papers.  Sometimes you just can not decided which side to face up.  This takes card of that problem.  


My sentiment came from the A Grand Kid Stamp Set which has some very fun sentiments that can be used for anyone not just a grandchild.  And considering I don't have kids or grandkids it's a good thing.  To make this card you will need four sheets of Designer Series paper cut at 2 1/2" x 1 7/8".  You are going to fold one corner down on each one to make the Four Corner Flap Card.  I measured in from one side a 1/2" on the bottom or top depending on which way your DSP will be facing.  And 1 1/8" from the side and made two little pencil marks to know where to score at.  

Video Tutorial: 



If you are viewing this post by email you may have to click here to view the video.  Not all mail servers like to show the embedded videos.  


After cutting scoring and folding in the flaps on the designer series paper you are going to need something to put them on.  I used a 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Just Jade Cardstock as my card front base.  I added each piece of the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper to the card front with a little Stampin' Seal Adhesive with just a little 1/8" border around the edges.  My center border was just a little bigger.  I stamped my sentiment from the A Grand Kid Stamp Set in Just Jade Classic Ink and cut it out with the next to the smallest Stitched Square Die from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut it where it created a diamond and placed it in the center of the card front with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added the card front to a Thick Whisper White card base cut at 4 1/4 x 11 (scored at 5 1/2).  


Here's my Product Recipe card that contain the main parts of the card.  You can save this to one of your inspiration boards on Pinterest if you would like.  Thanks for dropping by today I hope that you have a wonderful weekend.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today they can be picked up in my Online Store by clicking on the items in the Shopping List below.
