One Wild Ride

Hi Everyone.  Today I am sharing a card that will be part of my Card Buffet offering this Thursday night.  Card Buffets are a new part of my class offering and they are meant to be a way for you to have a variety of cards on hand to use for any occasion.  I have a buffet of cards to choose from, around 10 to 12 different styles, and you can make one of each or 2 of some or 10 of one style, what ever you like, just like a food buffet.  Cards are $2.50 each or 5 for $10.  10 for $20, the amount you make is up to you.

This month I have 10 cards.  One baby, one wedding, one sympathy, one Thanksgiving, some any occasion, some Birthday and two Christmas.  There is something for everyone.

There are lots of fun details on this card, such as the embossed silver foil and the splatter background. 
I made a quick video so that you can see how it all comes together.

I hope that you like today's project. Here is the supply list.

Paper Piecing / Paper Tole? with Count My Blessings stamp set

Hi Everyone.  Today I would like to share a new card made with the Count My Blessings stamp set.  I just loved this set from the moment I saw it, something about the art style and the fonts that caught my eye.

I wanted to play around with the flowers by adding some layers to the petals and leaves. I stamped some extra images and colored and cut out more of the petals and leaves, and used dimentionals to made them stand up higher.

I made a quick video if you would like to see a step by step.
I hope that you will look through your stamps and see if there are any that would work nicely with this technique.  I love the idea of sharing in our creativity, so if you do make something with lots of layering, please feel free to share it on my Facebook page:

Basket of Wishes meets Stampin' Blends

Hi Everyone!  I made this card a few weeks back for my Card Buffet and I had a few 'kits' left over, so I thought I would remake them with the new Stampin' Blends this time. I just love the way the basket looks.  I think that to variety of tones in the colors is just amazing and the markers are so easy to use.
Here is the original card.  For these I used the Watercolor Pencils. Both great coloring mediums.  I am glad that there are so many options and that they come in Stampin' Up! exclusive colors.

                    I made a quick video for those who like to see how it's made step by step!
Thanks so mush for stopping by today.  I am happy to announce that the Stampin' Blends are going to be available on November 1st!!  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me, I am always happy to help?

Basket Weave Fold Card with Colorful Season Stamps

Hi Everyone! Today I want to share a card that we made at Stamp Camp last weekend.  This card features a fun technique called the Basket Weave fold and it is so pretty and looks hard but is actually very simple.  I saw it a few times in the past online, and then this past Valentine's Day one of my Stamper Friends gave me a card with this technique and I vowed to try it for myself.  Though it took me a while, I finally got around to it and it is very fun!
I found a template here at Splitcoaststampers.  This is a great stampers website that if you are not familiar with, I really recommend you check them out.  They have a HUGE resource library and gallery of cards.  You can even search the Stampin' Up! gallery and find samples of cards for each stamp set Stampin' Up! has made for the last who knows how many years, all cataloged alphabetically so they are easy to find. 
Anyway, onto my card :)

I made a video to show you step by step how to achieve the basket weave along the fold.   

I used the Colorful Seasons Bundle to make the leaves. This design can really be used for any occasion, fall birthday, thank you, sympathy, anything. I used Cherry Cobbler, Cajun Craze and Crushed  Curry.  Here is what the inside and outside looks like when open.  The recipient of the card will be amazed and think this was a tricky fold, but it was really so easy.
I hope that you like the card.
