I’ve got two videos on my new YouTube channel. One is a video that I made back in August, as I was making little faceted boxes for my daughter’s baby shower. It took me a few months to publish the video and several hours to figure out how to do it – but here it is. Please give me a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel…. I’d really appreciate it.
I love this card. I made this type of card last year as our family Christmas card, recently saw one done by Connie Stewart, of Simply simple stamping, and decided it was time to redo the technique with something current. I hope you like it.
I’ve created a How To video for you.

These lovely cards are my swaps for this year’s OnStage in Toronto, in a couple of weeks. This video shows how simple stamping can be so effective. I’m pretty excited to be going with my team. I hope you like them. This card is also part of my group classes this month.
Thank you for watching.
Fun fold cards are just that – fun! This card is for all my crafty peeps, far and wide.
Card base – Crushed curry 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, plus scrap 1″ x 5 1/4, 2 x 2
whisper white – 9 1/2 x 5 1/4, score 2 1/2, 5 1/2, plus scrap
I cut the “ribbon” out of Crushed Curry card stock to match the card base, using the Arts and Craft Dies. Just a reminder, that if you purchase the Crafting Forever Stamps, and bundle with the Arts and Crafts Dies, you can save 10%.
Then I used one of the Layering Circle dies to create the window. Finally, I used the Button Button embossing folder, just on the front fold. If you embossed before you cut the circle, your embossing might flatten out a bit when you run the circle dies through the rollers of the die cutting machine.
I did all the stamping with Memento ink, and coloured the ribbon stamped image, with the Brights Stampin’ Write Markers.
The curvy little label (Crushed curry), is stamped then die cut.
After you stamp, you can fold and burnish your score lines, and attach the fun fold part to the Crushed curry back part of the card. This is a very quick card to make.
I’ve collected snow globes for many years and I was delighted to see this new stamp set this season. I stamped first with the Delicata Gold and then topped it with Delicata Copper Ink to give it a richer, more elegant look.
Seaside Spray – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, score at 4 1/4
Whisper White 5 1/4 x 4 (2)- one for the front and one for the inside sentiment.
Whisper white scrap for raised piece in the globe.
I used the Stamparatus to make sure that my snow globe came together cleanly, as I wanted to make a few of these quickly. I used Pool Party around the edges of the raised element to give it a little more dimension (as well as around the trees). A little Wink of Stella on the roof and the new Snowfall Accent Puff paint on the ground and evergreen tree.
I stamped the house on a piece of whisper white scrap, with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and coloured with Stampin’ Blends. Then I used the dies from the Still Scenes Bundle, to cut it out, then plunked it onto some dimensionals, and placed inside the globe. So stinkin’ cute!
