Donkey Fancy Fold

Hey Guys!

Yesterday I posted a Live YouTube video doing a Fancy Fold using the Darling Donkey stamp set! You can get this set FREE with a $50 purchase! Love, Love, Love this set!! I have been using it a lot ’cause I love it so much! If you missed my last Live you can catch it here! Also, I did a Blog post and that can be found here!

Free Donkey set Fancy Fold!

Of course I did a SECOND card for my Mini Class! And I also used the Free Donkey set!

Free Donkey stamp set on Memories & More gift card

First off, I wanted to tell you that I also used, along with the Donkey, the dies from the Bundle Ride the Range. I will be using this bundle for my next YouTube Live on Thursday January 14th! I hope you can join me. Also, I used some Free Designer Series Paper that comes in the Sale-a-Bration catalog as a bundle itself called Berry Blessings Stamp set + Berry Delightful Stamp set.

Secondly, as usual I am providing all the details needed to make BOTH projects:

  • Stamp sets:
  • Darling Donkeys
  • Many Messages
  • Inks:
  • Memento Black
  • Garden Green
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Blends:
  • Soft Suede
  • Smoky Slate
  • Color Lifter
  • Paper:
  • Basic Black: 12″ x 5 1/2″ (base), 5 1/2″ x 2 18″ (for panels) For Base you will lay it on your cutter/trimmer portrait and place the edge along the 3/4″ line and cut from the 1″ to 5″, pick up cutter and cut from 7″ to 11″, repeat for other side. Then place on trimmer Landscape and you will SCORE only on the outside edge (between the cut and edge), score on 1″, 5″, 7″ & 11″. Keep in Landscape and score ALL THE WAY across on 2″, 4″ 8″ & 10″. You will fold them on the outside edges mountain, valley, mountain valley (this is the same on both sides working towards the middle) Do both top and bottom. Inside flap gets folded mountain, valley, valley, mountain.
  • Granny Apple Green: 3 7/8″ sq. (back panel), 8″ x 3 7/8″ for middle scene, 5/8″ x 7/8″ (x8) for bottom and top small edges, 4 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ (for gift card)
  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper: cut 4″ x 5 3/8″ (turn and cut @ 2″ in half so they will line up), 4″ x 5 3/8″ for front panels when card is closed. 5/8″ x 1 7/8″ for adding to the tip and bottom small panels. And 4 1/4″ x 2″ for envelope flap
  • Memories & More Cards & Envelopes: I used a gift card/Envelope for small Donkey card.
  • White: 4″ x 3″ inside the Gift card
  • Misc:
  • Open Range Dies
  • Many Messages Dies
  • Layering Circle Dies
  • Stitched Shapes Dies (for sentiment donkey is kicking)
  • Holiday Rhinestones
  • Liquid Glue
  • Paper Trimmer

As you already know if you follow me and my blog, all the supplies will be listed below, click on any of the pictures and you will be taken to my OnLine Store! For any purchase of $35 or more you will receive from me the class packet for the class I am detailing today, which will include all the cardstock, die cuts (not the sentiments since that is not allowed per SU!) but I can send you the one die cut for the sentiment that the donkey is kicking since that is stamped with the stamp set and not the Many Messages. Also, you will get the Rhinestones and I will pre cut/score for the main card and die cut the circle for the gift card! The one thing I can not do is stamp anything.

BUT the great thing is it’s Sale-a-Bration now and you can get MORE than you would normally! Spend $50 and you can pick out that CUTE Darling Donkey set for FREE! This is while supplies last, so don’t wait! Furthermore, you will get the 16 project ideas in a PDF that has step by step instructions and pictures….hint, my Home decor item is what I made!! So you will have the measurements for that too!

Thank you for all your support! I so appreciate you joining me on my Live classes and for those who can’t watch live I appreciate you watching it later!

If you are in need of a catalog, let me know and I will get one right out to you!

Love ya!

TWO Fancy Fold Christmas Cards

Hey Guys!

On my YouTube live video from today the 10th of December, I showed you two Christmas Cards that have a Fancy Fold! I LOVE cards that have something added to them that makes them more interesting and different folds definitely make them interesting!

Seamless Blending of colors that draw your eye

Hey Guys!

Oh my Gosh you guys I LOVE how this card came out! Especially since I sent them out to my direct Team members, they loved them and wanted me to make a video so they could learn how to make it! Namely, how to Seamlessly blend the colors to draw your eye to the center. Subsequently you can find the video here. As you will see in the video it’s pretty simple if you follow one rule: Start OFF your paper first! It also helps if you rub either your sponge or brush, a little after inking up on a scratch paper before touching your project. First off, take a look at my card, can you see that I have 2 different ink colors PLUS the color of the cardstock?

See how you can blend colors to create a scene that draws your eye to the subject, seamlessly!?

To start with I began with a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock, I then sponged with a make-up brush Pacific Point around the edges leaving the middle un-inked. Second, I came in on top of the Pacific Point and went over the cardstock with Night of Navy, not quite going as far as I did with the Pacific Point. Thirdly, I stamped the tree from Life Is Beautiful in the center using Soft Suede ink. Lastly I sponged the sides with Night of Navy to make it really dark on the edges and fade to the light color in the middle. Can you see how seamless the blending is and how it really draws your eye in towards the tree in the center? Now, I DID emboss the snowflakes before I sponged the edges but it doesn’t matter if you do the sponging first.

As always here are the specifics for my card:

  • Stamps: Life is Beautiful
  • Inks: Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Soft Suede, Versamark
  • Paper: Night of Navy 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (scored @ 4 1/4″), Whisper White 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2) & 2″ x 3 3/4″, Seaside Spray 5″ x 3 3/8″
  • Misc: Elegant Faceted Gems, Paper Trimmer, Take your Pick tool, stamping sponges & make-up brushes

For the most part EVERYTHING listed above, excluding the make-up brushes, can be found on my OnLine Store. As a result of you ordering $35 or more from my Store you will receive from me SIXTEEN project designs with step by step instructions WITH pictures, in a pdf! Finally, you can click on any of the supplies in picture form below to be taken to my site so you can Shop with me!

Incidentally, I have another sponged scene that I did in the past, but for that one I only used sponges, you can see it here. Therefore, sponging doesn’t HAVE to be done using the make-up brushes, it makes it easier, but sponging can get the same result.

Lastly, I hope you know how much you mean to me! Just the fact that you come here and read what I wrote and watch my video means a lot to me. In brief, please come back again, and leave comments even if it’s to say you enjoyed my post.

I made my own Fall Ink Pad, you can too!

Hey Guys!

Today I am going to show you how I made my own Fall ink pad so that leaves on my tree look natural, when I am done you’ll be able to also!! Of course, I made a video you can go here if you would like to SEE how I made it! Naturally, I tend to look at pictures and if I have questions a video helps me out a lot. As an example, here is a picture of my card:

See how the leaves are THREE different colors! That’s my own Fall ink pad!
My own Fall ink pad was used for the inside too!

So, how did I make my fall ink pad? To begin with I had a dirty, yucky Versamark pad that I never used and thought of chucking it in the trash……but no, I could make my own Fall ink pad so my tree will look gorgeous AND match the colors I was using for this card!

My own Fall ink pad made from an OLD Versamark pad!

Since I wanted the colors to match my card I used Bumble Bee, Cherry Cobbler and for the green I went with Just Jade. Already I knew that I wanted to use the Holiday Rhinestones and those used Cherry Cobbler for the red, and a yellow that looked a lot like Bumble Bee but the green was Shaded Spruce so I went with a lighter shade of color and used Just Jade instead. It’s funny how I go about figuring out which colors I use in my crafting, this time it was all about the Rhinestones……gotta have that BLING!

For a different fall project that I made a few years ago, click here!
