Paper Engineering Folds

Petal Palette is My New Favorite Set!

I have been playing around with this bundle and can't stop making cards!  This card took a few minutes to design!  I am offering a class on Monday, April 9th at noon or 5 with this bundle.  I love it!  Pair it with the DSP and you can have dozens of cards in minutes.  I just decided to have my customers make SIX cards at the class since this set is so much fun to play with!  That is two extra!  We will not be featuring this card in class, but we will be making two cards with NEW paper engineered folds that are sure to WOW whoever receives them!

Cannot make this date?  Or want to do a class in the mail?  Contact me and I will give you the details!  Click on the TAMS code below for directions!

I Love This Designer's Series Paper!!!

My first love is anything with a heart on it.  My favorite aunt and uncle were George and Lucy Hart.  Every time I find something with a heart on it, it reminds me of these special people.  My second love is anything shiny!  So when I first saw this gold embellished DSP, I was immediately in love!  

Today I am sharing my Valentine I sent out this year.  It combines my two favorite things! Hearts and shiny things!    The gold foil, gold Embossing powder, gold embellished DSP and heart dies make a beautiful card with little effort.  Almost all of the papers in this packet can be interchanged to create equally beautiful projects.  Below are two examples of the same card using different versions of the papers.  Take the Valentine sentiment out and this could be a wedding, anniversary or birthday card for someone you love!

IMG_2136The gold on gold heart creates a stunning focal point.  The card is cut 4 1/4 by 11 inches.  Then it is scored at 4  1/4, 7 and 9 3/4 inches.  I used Calypso Coral and Rich Raspberry ink to create the layered sentiment.  The inside is created by layering coordinating papers leaving one section open for the sentiment.  Enjoy this clever and quick paper engineered fold!




Happy Valentine's Day!

...and more chocolate!  I love how the Giradelli chocolates come in all kinds of colors to coordinate with our Designer's Series Papers!  I also love to emboss gold on gold and silver on silver!  It is just stunning!  These are treats we made in our Valentine's class.  I cannot wait to leave them as surprises at my mom's senior living complex.  Nothing better than finding a little treat outside your door to brighten up your day!



Colorfusers January Blog Hop - Brrrr! Winter!


Happy New Year!  This card could have said CHAMPAGNE in honor of the new year,  but it was a HOT CHOCOLATE kind of day when I made it.  I love the Balloon Celebrations sentiments and they worked perfectly with this card.  And since my birthday is in January, I thought, this is a card I would love to get for a January birthday!


I experimented with first scoring the card top and then running it through the brick wall embossing folder.  It worked!  The card pops up to a stand up card!  I am sooo happy these Swirly Snowflake framelets were carried over from the Holiday Mini!  With temperatures hovering close to zero, frozen silver Snowflakes seemed appropriate!  The marina mist DSP is from the new spring mini catalog paper called Sweet Soiree.  The back of the designer's series paper (DSP) is really pretty also with silver highlights!  It was hard to choose which side to use.
