SUStars Blog Hop Fabulous Folds

Welcome to SUStars Fabulous Folds Blog Hop! If  you are following the blog hop you should have come from Nicole Smith's Blog, Scrappy Stamps and Ink

I have created this card with a new set from the Holiday Mini called "Always Thankful".  I think you will love this set and many of the items in the Holiday Mini. Only a little over a week before you can see and order from the Holiday Mini. This fold is one of my favorite folds for a card, it is called " Hope you enjoy this fold also, it is called the easel card.

This is the outside of the card. I used Stampin' Pastels with blender pens to color in the image. I also highlighted the pumpkins with crystal effects, can't see to well in this picture.

This is what the inside looks like. I love how it opens up and stays. I have used buttons, cut outs from stamps, and here I use the beautiful brads. I think these brads are so pretty that I don't even want to use them, just look at them. If you would like directions for making this go to this link and pull up the directions, card making directions.

Now it is timer for you to continue on your blog hop. Have fun on the rest of the blog hop. You will now go to Veronica Miller's blog, Blue Grass Stampers Studio. Hope you will come back often, and leave me a message.

OOPS! Don't Do What I Did!

I wasn't getting the deepness that I wanted with the Joyful Season Letterpress , so I thought the thickness would be the same as the texture plates, wrong. I tried layering like it said in Idea Book for the textured plates, DON'T DO! 
Look what happened.

One little stocking got smashed, big time.  I did figure-out that if added a piece of card stock I would get the impression I wanted. Glad this texture plate is only $5.95 .

Christmas Stamp-A-Stack Cards

These are three of the cards that I will be having at my Christmas Stamp-A-Stack on Aug. 19th and 20th. I got some of these ideas from Convention swaps and changed them a little making them more my style. The cards that inspired me where from Stephanie Fitch, Debbie Patrick, and Shelly Raines. Shelly, love that name, has a blog check it out.
Stamping it up with Shelly

I still have two more I'm making for the Stamp-A-Stack. During the Stamp-A-Stack each person makes four cards of each design. When done they will have twenty cards.
