Fancy Fold Friday

Another fancy fold, I seem to have done a few this week. This one is a stunner, it uses the Delightful Daisy designer paper.  I think its called a Tri Fold Shutter Card.








This is the card that I made. For the class I gave my customers a choice of paper from this pack then made up a pack of matching card and ink pads so they could create their own card 'in the style' of mine. These are the class makes.






I think they are all beautiful.

Butterflies again

Two little cards made with one piece of embossed paper. This time I used the butterfly embossing folder and a little bit of daubing.



This was the first card I made. I have used Peek a Boo Peach, Baja Breeze and Dapper Dan to sponge the background. The layer is then matted onto Peek a Boo Peach and Island Indigo. The butterfly is stamped in Dapper Denim, Peek a Boo Peach then stamped of Baja Breeze as the base layer. I am really pleased with how this has come out.


The second card uses the Peek a Boo Peach and Baja Breeze. The left over embossed piece has been cut into three 1 1/4 " squares then mounted on 1 1/2" squares of Baja Breeze. The butterflies are the small ones in the stamp set just stamped in the two colours.



I always like the four squares in the top right hand corner. The card somehow has balance. Not my usual colour choice but I quite like this.

Designer paper and a Daisy.

Another card from last Saturdays class. So classy but a very easy make. One of the pieces of paper is from the In colour stack and the other from the Delightful Daisy designer paper stack. I have teamed the tranquil tide with pool party. The happy birthday die cut always looks really good. Both papers and the card front and back piece are white, the one on the back looks cream, not sure why.





Isn't the daisy pretty, stamped with tranquil tide for the petals then pool party for the centre.

I would love to receive this for my birthday, wouldn't you.

Butterflies

Butterflies from the Watercolour Wings set today and as the wall embossing folder was still out I used that to. I love the fern in the butterfly basics stamp set so I stamped it in the lemon lime twist... it looks just like the ones in my garden, then a few inTranquil Tide.
The butterfly is stamped in this weeks team colour challenge but more of that another day. This is one of those stamp sets for three step stamping, they fit together so well.. Choosing the colours is the challenge!



I have added some wink of stella to the wings of the large butterfly but I can't get the sparkle to show up on the pictures.



So pretty.

Week 3 Jems Colour Challenge

Gosh this week is a hard one or is it just that these are not my sort of colours, I'm not a fan of yellow and to put it with orange well........
These are the colours:-
I could only see this colour combo with the fairy stamp set. I'm sure something else will come to me later in the week, but well out of my comfort zone!



I did try it with the pear pizzaz and fresh fig as the card layers but I didn't like those either!


Product share
The ‘5 In colours’ for 2017 - 2019 are delicious. Every one is raving about them and they are so on trend. Wouldn't it be good to spread the cost and get everything in the range...... read on



I have 3 places left for customers to sign up for this wonderful product share, then over the next 5 months, each person, each month will receive one colour of
an ink pad
a marker  pen
a bottle of re-inker,
a full reel of ribbon, 
8 double sided sheets of patterned papers for that colour
a pack of A 4 card
and 4 bows
At the end of the 5 months you would have everything for all of the in colours.
This would work out at £30 per month. (for each of the 5 months)

The BIG bonus doing it this way means that in one of the months you will be hostess, with £15 worth of free goodies to choose, this is a way to get  the beautiful Tranquil Tulips stamp set....if you want to. When it is your month or on other months you would of course be able to order other items if you choose to, this would increase the amount of your free hostess spends too.

The wall embossing folder again!

On this card the wall embossing folder is quite a feature Teamed with the  'Awesomely Artistic' stamp set it makes a lovely card.


Rather than use grey or brown to colour the wall I have used Elegant Eggplant, very lightly.
You start with the stamping and colouring with the marker pen then emboss then daub. Its so effective.

Fancy Fold and Daisy Delight Designer Paper

Do you love paper? I'm terrible it has to be something special for me to cut into some sheets. I just like to look at them, such a shame to cut them up. The two sheets I have used for these designs for tomorrows class - I felt like that but the cards are lovely.


The blue daisy paper is so pretty and is a bit like the dress I have recently bought for my sons wedding in August..... more of that nearer the time. 

                                                                           This is a step card. I have added ribbon on the sides and around the back to the design.


  The second card uses another sheet of the paper from this pack. I love this one too.                                      

 If you would like to make these cards book now - class is tomorrow. I have extra packs.

Embossing folder with simplicity

I know before I write this the embossing folder I used is no longer available, such a pity. Its a really good folder to encourage customers at class to make their card a bit different to the one I have made. They get to see how lovely the reverse of an embossing folder is, its differences are subtle but do give a different flavour.. This was the last card we made in class last Tuesday, for a variety of reasons I have to save the simplest until last. They all agreed this one is really pretty.


A word of advice, the flower shop stamps and the birthday blossoms that both use this punch - the punch is not symmetrical. I find that my customers find it very difficult to use the punch - so I played around with the stamp until I found the correct way around for the punch then drew a stick man on the back so they could see it through the block, they have to stand the stick man on the edge of the paper..... no problems punching now.


The first side of the embossing folder.
















The second side - subtle difference.

Sea views

Another Tuesday class yesterday using embossing folders. This card does use a number of techniques, all of which we have created with in the past on a tuesday.

I called her the classy lady, she certainly looks more classy than I did when I went to the coast last Saturday, I was wearing shorts and a tee shirt, it was lovely and warm.. Although cooler today its still fine.

The classy lady is from the 'Beautiful You' stamp set, although in the set this stamp has no legs!!! We couldn't do that so the legs are from one of the other ladies in the set. For the background we inked one of the larger clear blocks with soft sky and bermuda bay then spritzed the ink. You then place the block ink side down on the the card, you can watch the card suck up the ink! The block then lifts away clean. The birds are from the 'High Tide' stamp set, coloured with the basic grey marker pen, the pattern to create the sea is from the Flirty Flamingo but you could use the one from High Tide, and the brick wall embossing folder, gives the classy lady something to lean on. Hope this one feels summery to you.
