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.

U is for Up and Away Thinlits Dies

Welcome to my alphabet series showcasing some of the new products in the 2017 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogs. Today I am showcasing the Up and Away Thinlits Dies and Lift Me Up Stamp Set.  I couldn’t stop playing with this bundle! Here’s 4 cards I made.


My colors came from the Carried Away Designer Series Paper (Free with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration): Mint Macaron, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach, Watermelon Wonder, Smokey Slate, and Whisper White.


The DSP coordinates with the Lift Me Up Bundle. The DSP panels on all 4 cards measure the same, 3 1/4 x 3 1/4, with a layer of cardstock just  a smidge (1/8″) more.  There’s so many different sentiments in this set which work for birthdays, congratulations, thank you, thinking of you, and love. Here’s a look at the Lift Me Up Bundle.


Check out this video showing all the uplifting possibilities!

I tried something different on each of my cards using the stamp set and dies.

img_8953 These two cards have stamped balloons which I then cut out with the framelits.  The one on the left I stamped twice, once on mint macaron and once on white.  I cut the top part of the mint macaron balloon and adhered it to the whisper white then popped it up on dimensionals.  I was trying to get the look of the balloons in the DSP.  The one on the left was easy to match the DSP by just stamping in different inks and running it through the Big Shot to cut it out.


These 2 cards use the Thinlits Die with the Precision Base Plate.  I love this die!!! It’s easy to get different colors perfectly sized to fit with the dies in the set.  I used some DSP for the card on the left and cardstock for the card on the right.  I turned the dies over and pieced them together like a puzzle and held them together with Tear & Tape.  Then I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to adhere the hot air balloon.  I added some rhinestone jewels to one and  adhered the balloons with dimensionals to lift them up.


Here’s a look at each of the finished cards with matching envelopes.
