Flip It

I am loving the new Flip Card Thinlits!  Paired it with the Magnetic Platform and you have a home run!  I know .... some of you are still waiting for that platform but it should be coming to you soon from what I heard at CKC this weekend!  I just got the Circle Flip It Card Die this weekend and made 3 cards with it in about an hour!  I'm telling you, they are so easy to use.  It cuts your card and scores it for you. I find myself searching my stamps (and the catalog) to see what stamps will work for this flip method!  It's addicting. 

Plus you get a lot of other dies in the packet.  Here is my Circle Die.  You get different dies in the Label Die packet.

HERE is the flier with info about the die.

Here are my cards:

Front of card using Tasteful Trim for the "rick rack" on side and Polka Dot Parade DSP.  The scallop circle is included in the Thinlit Die pack

Card Open

Pool Party and DSP from Winter Frost Stack (pg 29 in holiday mini)  The stamp set is a "carry-over" item from last year's catalog - Ornament Keepsakes and has matching framelits.
 To see the other "Carry Over" stamp sets and accessories, click HERE

This card did not photograph well.  I used Wisteria Wonder and Blushing Bride DSP (retired stack)  The scallop is pink - not orange!!  The stamp set is Field Flowers. 

On this card, I added an additional flap making it a tri-fold card. 
When I was at convention, this die was demo-ed and they even made a little mini scrapbook using the die.

 And here is a card using the Label Card Die (I don't have this one .... YET!!

More April Club Cards

I have a couple more of the April Club cards to share with you.  Although my Tuesday group only ended up making the Anti-Bacterial Soap Holder and two of the cards. They took too much time watercoloring!!  I seem to always think they can work faster than they actually do.  But, no matter, the cards will be here next month!  We'll see what Thursday's group gets accomplished.

This is a very pretty white on white card using Kindness Matters (which didn't retire!!)
  •  Cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock:  10” x 4 ¼” AND 4” x 5 ¼”
  •  Emboss smaller white piece with Stripes Embossing Folder and Big Shot
  • Wrap pleated green ribbon around and adhere to white embossed piece
  •  Die cut an oval with Big Shot & Oval Decorative Embossing Folder.  Adhere to card with dimensionals.
  • Stamp “thanks” and one of the butterflies from Kindness Matters onto a white scrap and punch out with large Oval Punch.  Adhere to the embossed oval with dimensional. 
  •  Stamp butterfly on scrap of white with Pear & Pacific Point markers and cut out. Adhere to card with dimensional.
  •  Make a bow using Seam Binding Ribbon and glue to side of card.
  • Punch small flower and glue to top of bow.  Adhere a small pearl in center of flower.

This great card uses two of my favorites - the stamp set, Field Flowers and two-step stamping.

  • Very Vanilla cardstock:   10” x 4 ¼”  and 2 ½” x 4”
  • Black cardstock:  2 ¾” x 4 ¼”
  • Mocha Morning DSP – 4” x 5”
  • Adhere DSP to Vanilla card.
  • Adhere small Vanilla piece to Black cardstock.
  •  Stamp leaves & stems from Field Flowers onto Vanilla card stock with Early Espresso ink..
  • Insert brad in lower corner. Adhere matted vanilla piece to the DSP & card.
  • Stamp flowers onto scrap Vanilla – use Crumb Cake ink for the solid flower & Espresso ink to the other flower (two step stamping).
  •  Cut flowers out and adhere to card using Dimensionals.
  • Stamp sentiment onto Vanilla & punch out with large Oval Punch
  • Punch  Designer Label in black.    Mount Oval onto Black label.

Monday Mailer from March

This is a card I made for a Monday Mailer in March.  When I was in Texas, I forgot to share it with you.  I love this card and the stamp set.  I need to dust it off and use it more.  I used Field Flowers, Just Believe and the Butterfly Embosslits with some masking.  The flowers are stamped in Daffodil Delight and Peach Parfait using the two-step stamping technique.
