Special-Fold Birthday

Someone in my stamping group made a card like this, so I had to try it. It folds up like you'd fold up the top of a box - overlapping the panels. The instructions I had called for making it using two pieces of cardstock, but I thought I would try it with only one. I scored the lines and then cut out the corners and then folded it up. I thought I'd show you what it looks like when it's flat. The flower panels all use Papertrey Ink stamps. The text panel is from Hero Arts. I inked it up with green and then I used purple maker over some of the words. It came out looking black, but that's OK.
I'll have to see when I'll get more time in my stamping room. I've had SO much time in there, but not so much recently. Hopefully I'll get back to it soon. Stay safe and stay well!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Embossed Christmas

Well, it had to come to an end sooner or later:) I have had SO many cards made up and have had blog posts scheduled for up to a month in advance. But, this is my next-to-the-last card that I have to post, and busy times coming up. 

I used a Darice embossing folder for the white parts of this card. Each section was embossed separately. The red was embossed with a different Darice folder.

I have finished my 2021 calendars and even have them all packaged up and ready to wrap as gifts and to mail out. I also printed and cut out my 2022 calendars and have started on the April page. It feels great! Hopefully I will get my Christmas cards finished soon, too.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Autumn/Thanksgiving

I thought I would play with this set a little bit. I bought it at the garage sale at the stamping store we were at last summer at our Group Gathering in Ankeny, Iowa. It's from Papertrey Ink. All the stamps I used on these two cards are from the same set. I did a little light coloring with Copics. I used Gina K inks, and I matted them each a little bit differently.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

More Birthday Flowers

These flowers are from the same Stampin' Up! set that I used on yesterday's cards. I used Tim Holtz multi-media paper and Zig Clean Color markers for them all. I cut them out with coordinating dies. I mounted these on foam squares. I added strips of patterned paper on each side of the image panel. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.
This flower is also mounted on foam squares, and the sentiment is also from Papertrey.
The stem is from the flower set.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

All of these stamps are from the same set from Stampin' Up! There are dies to go with them. The sentiment is from an older Gina K set. One flower is mounted on foam squares.
