R is for Rocker Fun Fold

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series. I am over the top in love with today’s fun fold cards…they Rock!

I didn’t know what I was going to make for a fun fold for R and then Chris R. suggested a rocker fold. Well Chris R., YOU ROCK!  This fold is definitely FUN!!!!! I can’t stop playing with it and watching it rock.  I made a video for you…don’t blink or you’ll miss it! LOL

How sweet is this?! I needed a baby card and the Moon Baby Stamp Set was a perfect choice for this type of fold.  I started with a piece of 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 Soft Sky cardstock scored at 4 1/4.  I used an old scrapbooking circle cutter to cut the base but you could use a bowl and trace a half circle on the fold.

I embossed the front using the Lucky Stars Embossing Folder. I stamped the image on Shimmery White cardstock and used the Aqua Painter to watercolor. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the circle. I’ve shared before how much I love and use the Grid Paper. You can see in the photo below I used the grid paper to line up my card and make sure the circle didn’t go above 4 1/4″ so it would fit in a standard envelope.


I added some clouds cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper using the Up & Away Thinlits Dies. Then I fussy cut a dazzling star and attached it with a glue dot.

I couldn’t stop after just one of these fun folds.  My second card is a note card and will fit in the basic note card envelope. I was considering making a sailboat for my next card but we had the most delicious watermelon today so I decided to go with this card instead.

F is for Fun Fold Flap Card

Welcome to my ABC’s with Fun Folds series.  Today’s card is a Fun Fold Flap which I made into a gift card holder.


I love ice cream!!! One of my favorite places to go for ice cream is Sweet Frog.  Oh Yum!!! The frog from the Love You Lots Stamp Set was perfect for this card.  This hostess stamp set will be retiring at the end of this month.  I adore all the critters in this set!

Love You Lot Host Stamp Set

I stamped the frog in Basic Black on Shimmery White then colored it with my Aqua Painter and Wild Wasabi ink.  I punched it out with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. I also punched a 2″ Circle from Melon Mambo cardstock and adhered the two together.


My Wild Wasabi cardstock measures 4 1/4 x 9.  I scored it at 1 3/4 and 6.  I cut a 2 3/4 x 4 piece of Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper and adhered it to the front of my card. Then I centered the 2 inch Circle Punch over the score line on the inside of my card and punched.

I adhered a piece a piece of 4 x 4 Whisper White cardstock on the inside of my card. (It will cover part of the punched out circle.) I attached my layered circle on top making sure I could easily open and close the flap.  I used Tear & Tape to seal the flap on the bottom to make a pocket for the gift card. Then I cut a 1 1/2 x 4 piece of the confetti DSP and adhered it to the pocket.  I stamped the sentiments from the Cool Treats Stamp Set in Wild Wasabi ink. The small heart is punched from Melon Mambo cardstock.

I wrapped a piece of the NEW 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon (available June 1st) around the card and tied a bow.  You can easily slide it to open the card.  I love how you can see the adorable little frog when the card is opened and closed.


Stamp Sets: Love You Lots (retiring hostess set), Cool Treats  Ink: Wild Wasabi, Basic Black  Papers: Wild Wasabi, Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper (retiring)  Tools & Accessories: 1 3/4″ Circle Punch, 2″ Circle Punch, Heart Punch, Aqua Painter, Min Chevron Ribbon, Tear & Tape Adhesive

I know several people who would love to receive this “Sweet Gift”.  We had an exchange student from Germany stay with us and she loved Sweet Frog as much as the rest of my family.



So many choices!!


What’s your favorite ice cream topping?

Have a Fantastic Day!

Thank You, Friend

I’m still cranking out thank you cards! I received lots of yummy food from friends while recuperating so when I return the dishes and baskets I like to include a little note.  I love the Host Stamp Set in the annual catalog, Love You Lots.  The animals featured in this set make adorable note cards.


How simple and cute is this 3 x 3 note card?! I started with a piece of Thick Whisper White cardstock measuring 3 x 6 and scored it at 3″. The real red layer is a 2 3/4 square and the stamped whisper white layer is a 2 1/2 square.  I stamped the ladybugs and sentiment with Basic Black ink and then colored the ladybugs with my real red marker. Next, I made an envelope using a piece of Designer Series Paper from the Sending Love 6 x 6 Paper Stack and the Envelope Punch Board. It is so simple to make your own envelopes following the simple directions right on the envelope punch board.  This is definitely one of my favorite tools as I use it for more than just envelopes.  You can make all kinds of candy treat holders, etc.  You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one… it is only $20 (item # 133774) and even has a built in corner rounder.


Here’s a short video showcasing the Envelope Punch Board.

I dressed up my envelope with some organza ribbon and real red bakers twine (left over from the holiday catalog). I stamped and colored some more ladybugs then cut them out with the Layering Circles Framelits .  I added a scalloped circle cut in basic black and adhered this to the ribbon with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  This way the ribbon piece just slides off to open the envelope.



Love You Lots Clear-Mount Stamp Set Item # 141801
Price: $9.00
 *This host stamp set is only available with Stampin’ Rewards.
Take a cute animal, add a heartfelt sentiment, and you have a one-of-a-kind, handmade-from-the-heart card. The animal images are also adorable on cards and scrapbook pages for children. This set is certain to become a go-to for your card making.
