Technique Tuesday Triple Flap Fold Christmas Card

I love when a project comes together! Click here for a video to see the process It took to make this beauty!  The great thing about the video is that I tell you the dimensions and supplies!

I was spending time on YouTube the other day and found this great idea from Dawn, which you can see here.  I loved the idea, but didn’t have her Halloween stamps, even though I LOVE Halloween (need to have new ideas every year for scrapbooking!).  So, I DID have the Christmas stamps from Stampin’ Up! called Father Christmas (I used EVERY stamp!, WooHoo) and Nature Sings.  These Stamp sets are PERFECT for my idea!

When do you use every stamp from a stamp set on ONE project?  I did for this one!  Not sure WHY I am proud of this, but I am.  😉

Here is the project closed:

Partially open:

And now all the way open!:

Isn’t this pretty!?  What I love is other than the front where I colored, there isn’t anything else that needs that much attention!  I DID sponge all the Vanilla pieces but I pretty much sponge everything so this wasn’t a big deal to me.

When I showed this around, I got so many Ooooooh’s and Aaaaaaaah’s!  LOVE when that happens!  Now the question: Who do I send this to?

The next question is what will be my technique for NEXT Tuesday?! Any suggestions? I have a great idea, not sure if I will go with that idea or one YOU give me!

I hope you like this technique, I would love to see a ‘story’ you would like to create using this Fancy Fold!

Until next time!

Ghosting with a Twist Technique Tuesday

If you like this card, look below and see how you can have me make you one!  Go to this video to see how this card was made!

I see the ‘Ghosting’ Technique all over, and I wanted to do this with a Twist!  I made a Beach landscape card, and wanted my chair to have a shadow, or ghosting effect, BUT I wanted to be able to see the water and sand behind the chair.  The thinlit from SU!’s Seasonal Layers cuts the entire chair out, and that would leave a BIG hole in my beach scene!  :-O  Can’t have that!!  So, I die cut out 2 images of the chair, one in Crushed Curry and one in Black.  Plus, I had to die cut out the chair directly from my scene!

Once the card was made, I cut out the chair which left a BIG hole in my card, so I had to remake my background on scraps of Very Vanilla to match the colors that I already had on my card.  This is much easier than you would think…….just sponge the colors you used onto Very Vanilla and stamp the waves for the water, tape them onto the back of your card.  It’s that easy!!  Then you will still have the outline to place a black chair, and it will be flat to the card, it looks just like a shadow!

Here is the view of the entire front!
