High Tide Stamp Set, Seasonal Layers Thinlits & Sponging

This card was made by Bonnie A. of Washington, IL
She used the High Tide Stamp Set & the Seasonal Layers Thinlits cut out the chair.
Bonnie also did some sponging to make the beautiful background.

Question for you though......do you know which stamp set the sentiment comes from?
I do not, so I'm just getting the challenge out there for all of you viewers.
It's getting my bed time and I have no energy right now to research this  :)
Let me know please!!  Thank you.  Lori

Color Theory Designer Series Paper Stack Puts Out 2 Cards!!

Card swap by fellow demo and friend, Karen F. from Dunlap, IL
Karen used the 3/8" Striped Grosgrain Ribbon which goes great w/ the Berry Burst paper.
The Pretty Label and Decorative Ribbon Border Punches were used.
Of course the featured paper stack in the Berry Burst color makes this card come to life!

This was a recent class project for my gals featuring the Color Theory Paper.
They enjoyed using the Daisy Punch x 2 in So Saffron Card Stock.
The Happy Birthday Thinlit was cut from a pc. of a Gold Foil Sheet.
Of course, we used a Multipurpose Adhesive Sheet to make the words adhere easily!


Questions about either card?  Please let me know.
Thank you for stopping........Lori

Awesomely Artistic w/ Fun Fold Windshield Wiper Look!


SAY WHAT?  Check this card out made by my friend Marilyn.  I think I did this fun fold pattern years ago as well-- for a Christmas Card at a class.  TOO FUN!!  If you would like scoring instructions etc. etc. please email me at:  stampinfool2006@yahoo.com


The "Brick Wall" Embossing Folder was used along with the "Awesomely Artistic" Stamp Set.
I'm not sure of the colors Marilyn used but it turned out really pretty!

The "friend" sentiment is in the same set as the other stamped images.
It's so cool how you can pull this card open and shut and the "wiper" appears & disappears!

This is an above-the-project shot. You can sort of tell how the little pop up works.
Yes, this card will fold up flat to fit in our regular sized envelope.
Thanks so much Marilyn S. for sharing this fun fold card with me!  (smile)


I hope you enjoy it as much as I did......Lori Helvick

Anyway, I LOVE this very cute stamp set- new from StampinUP! (pg. 48)

I  C.A.S.E.D both of these cards from pinterest and just switched a couple things up a bit.
