I am sharing with you a card that I made for a swap that I signed up for where I made 20 of these cards (below) and received 20 different swaps back!
Here is my card:
I think I love this stamp set so much because it reminds me of Disney and being a kid. Below I will have all the supplies listed to make this card, just click on any of the pictures to be taken to my OnLine Store.
I also used the Stamp set In the Trees by Stampin’ Up! for the grass under the dragon. I stamped the ‘Magic stars’ in Versamark on the Black and then embossed it with Silver Embossing powder. I thought it added just that right sense of MAGIC!!
The dimensions for this card are as follows:
Bermuda Bay Base: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Soft Sky: 5 1/4″ x 4″
Cherry Cobbler: 2 1/8″ x 3 7/8″, scrap for scalloped Ovals
Whisper White: 2″ 3 3/4″, scrap for Stitched Shape Oval
Basic Black 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Silver Glimmer Paper: scrap for Oval
I hope this helps you if you want to recreate this card! I had a lot of fun making it!

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:
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!

LOVE the Deer from Nature Sings! And the verse above the JOY comes from Christmas Pines! The J and the Y are from Letters for You.
Some Christmas Cards you want to be simple, so you can crank those babies out and get them in the mail……this is one of those! The wreath is the new Boxwood Wreaths on page 197! I added Metallic Metal Shapes and the Brights Enamel Shapes to make the ‘ornaments’ on the front of the wreath! Isn’t it pretty?!!

Here is the start of my Christmas cards that I will be making this year! If you receive cards from me and want to be surprised, don’t go any further!! LOL
I am doing a class where we will make 3 each of FIVE Christmas cards, and if you prepay you get to make an extra Bonus card! I’m hoping to get a headstart on my Christmas cards this year, how about you?!
I am going to show you today ONE of my 6 cards so far…….make sure you check back in so you can see the others!
Here is the first one:
I love cards that are weathered and antiquey……..I know that is NOT a word, but that’s the only one that came to mind! LOL
I stamped the Music Notes on the Vanilla piece with Sahara Sand, but stamped off first so it wasn’t so dark. I then tore the cardstock in carefully planned areas, and made it look old. LOVE doing this, don’t you? This card was really simple except that the ageing did tak a little time, but not as much as you would think. I stamped the Reindeer? using Early Espresso ink, didn’t color him in at all, and I think he looks great! I wanted some of my cards to be a little simpler since I will be making these in bulk. I cut him out using the Stitched Framelits and then cut a mat using the Circle framelits using the scallop, cutting this out with Cherry Cobbler. I used my Early Espresso marker to make the stitched edge look stitched!
For the Banner I used the Bunch of Banners thinlits. Did you know that this banner thinlit cuts out BOTH the sentiment AND the border? I hadn’t used this one yet, and was surprised that it did that, so I was able to frame the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler!
I added Linen Thread behind the Reindeer, popped up the sentiment with Dimensionals and I was done! Easy Peasy!
Here is what the inside looks like:
Isn’t it pretty?
Below is a pictorial list of what I used to make this card, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store! If you purchase anything from me online I will send you a handmade card!
Want some Blog Candy? I have taken a few days off since giving away my last one, so I guess it’s time!!
I LOVE embossing folders and I also love Bakers Twine! This Bakers Twine is Gray, my FAVORITE color! Is Gray a color?
You can get this mailed directly to you if you win the drawing that I will be having in a few weeks on July 29th. How can you win this? Easy! Just leave me comments here on my blog, OR on any of my Social Media places……..Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. ALL comments count, no matter which posts you comment on! You can spend a good amount of time visiting my older posts and commenting and they count!!
