Boys Will Be Boys & Embossed Aluminium Foil

May 20, 2015

This is the card I made for my son’s birthday last month – I bought the stamp set thinking it would be great for cards for my young nephews, but my older teenage son loved this! This was another fold over window card like the one in my previous post. The inspiration for this style of card came from Dawn Olchedske’s video.

Card: Whisper White, Real Red, Basic Black
Stamp Pads: Memento – Black
Stamps: Boys Will Be Boys, Itty Bitty Banners
Other: Framelits – Ovals Collection & Bitty Banners, aluminium foil, cogs embossing folder (non-Stampin’Up!)


Fold Over Window Card and Mossy Ferns

May 18, 2015

A couple of last month’s class cards. I used the fern stamp from the Butterfly Basics set (I love this set; it is so versatile) and three generations of stamping to get the right effect for this card – a quick and easy card but very effective:

Card: Naturals Ivory, Mossy Meadow
Stamp Pads: Mossy Meadow
Stamps: Butterfly Basics

The inspiration for this next card came from US demonstrator, Dawn Olchefske. I used Dawn’s idea for the card, but changed the measurements to suit our (Australian) cardstock size and changed it a little to eliminate a layer and make it less bulky to mail.

Card: Soft Sky, Whisper White, Crisp Cantaloup, Crumb Cake, Pear Pizzazz
Stamp Pads: Crumb Cake, Marina Mist, Crisp Cantaloup
Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Other: Bird Builder punch, Woodgrain embossing folder, Framelits – Ovals Collection & Bitty Banners
