2 Fun Fold Cards w/ YouTube Tutorial

 

I love Dragonflies too!!! Today I have a fun YouTube taking you step by step through the creating process. These are both very simple cards but the eye for detail make them so much fun for the recipient. Lets take a closer look…

 

The first tutorial teaches you how to make this unique multiple flip card. It has a front flap that gives you an extra area to stamp your sentiment or message. Then inside it still have room for a note. I love the tone on tone look. In the video I show you an extra tone on tone version that is also quite striking.

 

 

The second card is a simple Z Fold design using the exact same pack of 6×6″ Dandy Garden Paper. Such a variety of color combos in this pack of papers.

 

And don’t miss getting these Ladybug Trinkets from my online store. Aren’t they the most adorable embellishments ever? In my online class I include them in one of the options along with the glue dots to attach them securely. Want more details on my Online Class. Click HERE!

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you will click on the YouTube video and that you enjoy the tutorials. Don’t forget there is only 1 week left until sign ups close for my online class featuring this same Dragonfly Garden Bundle 🙂

Happy Crafting!

2020-2021 Annual Catalog, Stampin Blends, Wednesday Sketch

Weekly Sketch ~ Celebrate Sunflowers & Walk in the Woods By Stampin Up!

Welcome back friends.

This Wednesday I will actually be out of town for a much needed break away from the ins and outs of life. Hubby and I are escaping to the Smoky Mountains and I cannot wait!!! For today’s Wednesday Sketch I have chosen to feature 2 really fun stamp sets from Stampin’ ® Up! “Celebrate Sunflowers” and “Walk in the Woods”. Both sets are perfect for the fall weather and worked wonderful with this weeks sketch. Lets take a look and let me know if you agree.

 

I absolutely love the “Celebrate Sunflowers, Stamp & Die Set and it is available at 10% off. Sunflowers are so perfect for fall. If you have not seen this bundle please CLICK HERE so you do not miss out on the amazing dies that go along with this stamp set. I enjoyed coloring, as always, with my Stampin’ Blends. If you are new to Alcohol coloring I would definitely recommend these markers. They come in both light and dark in each bundle so there is never a question as to which markers will blend well together. Let me know if you have any coloring questions. I am always just a message away and would be glad to assist you in any way.

For my second card I am featuring the “Walk in the Woods” Stamp Set. This stamp set is also a nice set for coloring. I got very carried away following the sketch and have added in a lot of texture with the “Many Medallion Dies“. These dies are also available as part of a bundle along with the “Best Year” stamp set at 10% discount.

 

These cards are a perfect theme for me heading to the mountains today. I hope you all have enjoyed today’s projects. CLICK HERE to join my VIP Facebook Group and share your Stampin’ Up! projects with all of us. We would love to see your current projects.
