It’s a Mystery Fold!

Hey Guys!

I’m on a roll! I’ve done 4 videos in 4 weeks! You can go to my YouTube channel to see the other videos I’ve done. To see this cards video you can click here. Looking OnLine I saw this fold card from Etsy, she was charging to make that card, and I figured I would try to figure it out on my own. And I did! What is great is that it fits into one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes and I made it work! After I saw this on Etsy, I saw someone else from Europe do the same cut but their cards are bigger than the United States so I’m even more proud that I figured it out by myself! Here is my card:

This is the card open. Isn’t that dog stinkin’ cute!? Love that I got the fold idea from Etsy!

And the front of the card:

Here is that Snooty Kitty! I have one of those do you?

And here is my cheat sheet!

Coming Soon! Sneak Peek to Magical Day!

Today I am sharing with you a couple of cards that I made for my YouTube Channel.  I have a very simple fold but the cards are stunning!  You can see the video here!

While I was at OnStage in Salt Lake City in UT I got to see first hand cards that were made using this set!!  I fell in LOVE!

Here is the front of my card:

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is called Myths & Magic, it is embossed and GORGEOUS!!  ON the Video you can see how shiny and beautiful they are!

Here it is partially open:

I embossed the ‘sparkles’ on the side using Silver embossing powder.

Here is this card open all the way, isn’t it pretty!!?

I used Stampin’ Blends, and just love this card so much!!

Now, here is the other card, same design, different stamps!

I used the Myths & Magic Washi Tape on the side, isn’t it gorgeous!?

I am already planning on ordering MORE of this DSP and Washi Tape!

Well?  Do you love it?!  If you want a catalog, just let me know and I will get it to you!!

Card # 3 – Christmas Cards

Here is my favorite of all the cards!  I am posting this now because I have made a video for this ‘type’ of card….Easel Card.  The video is making this fold, but you can see a different card using this same fold!  You can watch it on my Technique Tuesday video series!

Here is my Christmas version!

This card design is based on a card that I swapped with Linda Wiencek!  Love the design, I did it a little different, I didn’t have everything she used.  This is called an Easel Card.  It is VERY sparkly in person!

If you are interested in getting my 7 page pdf with Instructions, dimensions and Color Photos of all 6  Christmas Cards, you only need to  purchase $50 from my Online Store and I will email it to you!  The supplies needed for this card are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my Store!  Please use hostess code CGCDT6ZJ

As for the how-to to make the folds and cuts for this card, you can find an Easel Card on my YouTube channel, my pdf has all the dimensions for each panel!

Off to do some work with my hands, have some Cards to make!

Technique Tuesday Cascading Steps

YOU are in for a Treat!  Today I am sharing with you my latest Technique!  To see it done, go to this video on YouTube!

The reason I am so excited is because I have only seen this ONCE before about 15 years ago on a tv show and I had to remake the instructions according to what I SAW. There were no instructions anywhere!  So after about a week of trial and error, I remade the design!

Here is another view:

And from the top:

Well?  Do I have reason to be excited??!!

Want to be able to print out your own Cheat Sheet?  Well, I have written it down for you!  Click below to print your own!

cascading steps instructions

I have used this design for Palm Trees, Christmas Stockings, other flowers…….Can you think of a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that would work here?  I would LOVE to get more ideas!

Hope you enjoyed my latest technique!  I am always looking for new ideas, any techniques that you would love for me to make a video of?
