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??!!

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!

First, you will need to pick a shape you want to transform! I chose two, the Pansy Punch and the flower from Eastern Medallions Thinlits. I punched out 3-4 of each image with another one from DSP. I chose the Eastern Palace since it was so pretty.
Take your Silicone Craft Sheet, a foam brush, Mod Podge and your cut outs. Starting with the colored images, not your one cut from the DSP, spread a thin layer of ModPodge over entire surface with your Foam brush. Then lay another layer of the image on top of that and repeat. You will do this 3 – 4 times ending with the one you cut out of the DSP (do not put ModPodge on top). Then you can cut into all layers if you want to manipulate the paper more than the design allows. Keep working at it until you are happy with the shape. Once done, you will spread Fine Tip Glue over entire surface, set aside to dry.
When dry, put your two pieces together as shown:
This is already attached to my card, but this gives you a close-up of what it looks like when dry.
Here is a picture of the closed card:
In the video I show you how to apply the Flourish Thinlits and how to adhere it to the card!
This is a Fancy Fold card, here it is open:
If you wanted, you could attach the flower on front with a Pin, and then mail it to someone who loves to wear brooches, or use it for a headband! I have done in the past a 3d Rose, and that was gorgeous!

Today I am sharing with you a new Technique that I kind of stumbled on!! I’m using the NEW stamp set: Painted Harvest #144783 which will be in the Holiday Catalog coming out in September! You can see the video on YouTube, I have some great tips and it’s a VERY simple Z fold card!
Here is a picture of the front of the card:
Isn’t it GORGEOUS!? I was just playing around and was astounded at how great this came out! This is one of those times when I am sitting at my stamp table (by myself) and I start to talk and say how beautiful it is! LOL No-One is there, mind you……..even after 16 years of stamping I STILL get excited that I can make something this pretty!
Here it is open:
Doesn’t Berry Burst work great with this card? And here is a close-up of the front flower that looks like embroidery:
I popped up this whole piece using the Foam Adhesive Strips since they pop up more than Dimensionals. The video I made shows a different leaf than the one shown here, and I like it better. I show you how to mask the flower and put the leaves behind it. I also show you how to do the ribbon behind this image. If you go see it, leave me a message and let me know what you think.
IF you leave me a message I will have a drawing in 2 weeks on the 28th for one of you to win this card! Leave a message either here on my blog or on the video on Youtube.
ALL the dimensions are on the video, so if you want to recreate this go check it out!
All the supplies are listed below, click on any picture to be sent to my On-Line Store! If you purchase from me I will be sending you a handmade card as a Thank You!
This is a SNEAK PEEK so hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do! Keep an eye out for MORE Technique Tuesday videos! Techniques are my favorite. Anything that will let me use my stamp supplies more are a win win in my book!
Until next time!
