Featuring: Sun Prints designer paper, Chocolate card, Stampin Up HAPPY WEDNESDAY WONDERS!!! Anyone feeling peckish??? 🍫🍫🍫 Years and years ago I made a chocolate block card and I have seen a few being made recently so thought it might be time to re visit this fun and easy card. The Starry Sky In colour and the Sun Prints designer paper both have similar colours to the Well known Cadbury chocolate so they were my inspiration. Base card: Starry Sky Early Expresso for chocolate block Alfoil and Sun Prints dsp I used a strip of silver foil to appear like gift wrap ribbon and the gold bow is from Pretty Birds dies. I have gone back to my retired stash and pulled out the Honey Bee stamp set. The Chocolate Square I took a "bite" out of with a scallop punch.  The Life is Uncertain.... is a non SU stamp. I used this card as a retirement card for a neighbour and of course I included a block of chocolate!:)  Have a great week. Vx HI THERE, You can always catch me on my Facebook page:

Sit Stay Relax Pop out Bendy Fun Fold

Featuring: Sit Stay Relax Hostess stamp set, Gatefold Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold, Enchanting Details dies, Fathers Day, Stampin Up 2022 HAPPY WEDNESDAY WONDERS!!! Have you ever checked out the Hostess sets on the back page of the Annual Catalogue p.179 ??? I loved the Sit Stay Relax Stamp set and thought it would be a good fit for a Fathers Day Card this year. The Pop Out Bendy Fun Fold idea was from a card I saw from Sue Camperfield. You open the card then push out the centre fold and the Bendy piece on the front pops out. The extra piece on the front of the Bendy strip helps to give it a bit of a wiggle. So it jiggles around a little. I have included a few measurements and directions in the photos below.  Gatefold Card Open Gatefold Card closed. Using Pumpkin Pie Card base Retired designer paper Retired Fathers Day stamp Night of Navy Belly Band (little dog is hand cut from the Sit Stay Relax stamp) I wanted the dog to look a bit like our dog so left it white and just coloured a couple o

Pretty Birds W Fold insert.

Featuring: Pretty Birds, Birdhouse Dies, Cottage Rose stamps, Cottage flowers dies, W Fold Insert, Special Fold, Stampin UP HAPPY WEDNESDAY WONDERS!!! A special card today. Aren't the Pretty Birds sooooo Pretty! I have used Tahitian Tide Card Base.  Whisper white for mat and inside W Fold insert. This card was inspired by one I saw from Alisa Tilsner.  Inside the W fold insert. I put the birds on the outside of the cage and flowers cut from the Cottage flower dies inside for interest. The flower dies are cut from whisper white and hand coloured with Blend pens in Granny Apple Green and Pool Party. All the gold die cuts are cut from Distressed Gold Specialty Paper page.139 Annual Catalogue. This is my favourite. It cuts beautifully without adding bulk to your card. Just love it. I loved the idea from Alisa of keeping the background in black and white it looks lovely while making the main images pop. (also less work colouring. haha.) Have a great week.

A Special fun card today using the Saleabration Tree Lot Dies and the matching Stamp set Trees for Sale from the Holiday catalogue. p.39 and the Snowflake Specialty Vellum p.40 Card base is Soft Seafoam. Open it up and you have a fun little 3D pop out scene created with two corner pop outs on the sides. To make these you start with your folded 15cm x10 cm card and measure 4cm on the folded edge from both sides. Then 4cm down both sides of the card. Now score diagonally between the top and side 4cm marks, on both sides. Push in on the scored lines so they fold into the card. See photos below for reference. Note: when attaching your pop out images to the insides - only attach to the one side closest to the bottom half of you card. As shown below. have a great week and thanks for popping by. Vx S
