Here are the cards we have made in April and May. Click on any of them to enlarge for details.
This is the double dutch fold technique. Directions/measurements for this card: Cut cs in half lengthwise 11x 4 1/8or 4 3/16 (slightly narrower than 4 1/4), fold in half at 5 1/2". Normally you could cut 2" off the bottom all the way across before cutting in half, but with the card we are making, I'm using the new edgelits dies to make a special edge. Add a 2x8 1/2 piece across the bottom, glueing from the back and fold edges around to the front to form "dutch doors". It will be clearer when you see/make the card.
The stamp set Bordering on Romance and the framelits and edgelits from the Occasions mini are in the new catalog if you missed them. They also kept the twitterpated DSP even though it has a couple of retiring in colors. :)
Everyone that came to club Sat got a pattern to make their own cup, but basic measurements are 3 1/2 x 10" folded to make 3 1/2 x 5", then cut sides and round bottom. I made the pattern by tracing an actual cup then fine tuning it. The top is 1 x 4" with 5/16" trimmed and layered. The lipstick is SWAK single stamp that is retiring soon. DSP is mocha morning (how apt is that name) that is also retiring. I changed the layers around and used garden green for the back "four frames" piece and cherry cobbler for the front "oval all" scallop. It popped a bit more that way. A layer of crimped crumb cake and espresso bakers twine was the finishing touch.
This was the inspriation for my starbucks card, made by my sister Joyce. But the DSP is from SAB and is retired, so I used Mocha Morning. Hers is smaller and fits in a notecard envelope.
This stamp set and wheel made it into the new catalog. It is such a fun wedding set that also includes a cake and sentiments. The wide striped ribbon and blushing bride cardstock is retiring as is the pinking hearts border punch :(
I love this new set that was in the Occasions mini and is also in the new catalog-Mixed Bunch. I was less than thrilled with it when it was in the mini, but saw many great ideas for it's use, so decided to get it. The coordinating punch is a perfect pair.
This is a card that my sister Joyce made at a workshop recently. She let us make one in Nashville. It is a joy fold and uses emboss resist technique for the flower on the card and rock and roll on the envelope.
