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?

Aren’t the new Rhinestones so pretty?!

This is pretty simple for me, but when you add the Rhinestones, Gold Foil and Embossing (both ways) it really adds up to something very elegant! I am so excited that I get to share this with you!

Just Breathe

Hey Guys!

Today I’m sharing with you a card that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest (it was a rival stamp company), I thought that Stampin’ Up! Stamps would be GORgeous! I used Layered with Kindness, it is a DISTinkTive set! Do you know what that means? SU! has a patent pending for a VERY beautiful way to make stamps look realistic! LOVE them!

These leaves are stunning!

Every time I stamp with a DISTinkTive stamp set I am in awe. You’ll have to tell me if you have used them, what you think. If you want to check them out, go ahead and place an order… look for this sign:



Would you like to see the inside of the card? I used the Label Me Lovely punch. It turned out so pretty!

This card was pretty easy, a little bit of fussy cutting but you only cut out three flowers, that’s doable! Of course if you know me, you know I love bling…..I added a rhinestone to each flower and two at the top to add a little bit of bling on it’s own. I think if balances it out!

Hopefully, you’ve been following along with my cards that I will do in a free class when you purchase the Painted Poppies Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! And, if you buy the bundle you can make FIVE cards! The last 2 posts I have been showing you the cards that we will be doing.

First off, can I say how much I LOVE this stamp set!? It is super pretty and the way SU! brought so many cool things that coordinate with it make it even that much better! Every time I get on Pinterest, I find something else that I want to do, or am inspired to make.

Secondly, I love that Stampin’ Up! is always encouraging us demonstrators to do well in our business. They gave us a challenge to sell a certain number of this set, and being that it is so cool, I doubt I will have any trouble! It was first on my list to buy and I’ve heard others say the same thing.

Enough Talk! Here is the 3rd card you can make with me:

Simple but very elegant, right? I love how the DSP brings out the color of the Poppy.

Here is the inside:
