The “drapery fold”

No doubt you have seen this “fancy fold” all over by now, but this April camp card was my first attempt.  I followed the directions of Dawn Olchefske, scoring the 6″ x 2″ piece of DSP at  3¼”, 3¾”, 4¾, and … Continue reading

Bear with Hearts

Oh, how fun these bears are!  You must think so, too, because they’ll appear in the Stampin’ Up! 2016-2017 Annual Catalog.  I was relieved (again) that they were not retiring, as the poor darlings had barely seen ink.  I remedied … Continue reading

A bloomin’ heart — your way

This card, from Inkspiration Saturday of a few weeks ago, has a secret.  Its construction is similar to the Bloomin’ Pink Heart, but the colors … what is that background paper? The answer is that it’s custom made, and limited only … Continue reading

Blessings of Easter

This card combines some of my favorite stamping details:  a vellum overlay, random stamping on the background, and heat embossing.  The tag is die cut with Lots of Labels Framelits, omitting the detail at the top; the Pool Party piece and … Continue reading

Mad for plaid

Here’s my new obsession:  creating custom plaids with the Brushstrokes background stamp.  Of course I didn’t invent this (did anyone, really?), but I just can’t stop!  Ink and stamp in one color, ink in another color and stamp with a … Continue reading

A watermelon anniversary

Thankfully, Watermelon Wonder is not one of the retiring In Colors (at least, not retiring this year), and I’m happy about that.  I love to use it with a bit of black, and even though it may not appear so, … Continue reading
