Sleigh Ride Twist Turn Folding Technique



During my Techniques Classes in November, participants got to make this Twist Turn technique card which I learned when I visited Dawn Griffith’s blog here or on YouTube here.

We used Soft Sky as our card base and then sponged 3 panels for our skies with Soft Sky, Perfect Plum and Night of Navy.  We then used Night of Navy ink and stamped the stars in the sky with a stamp from Holly Jolly Greetings.  We punched a 2″ circle from one of the sponged panels and then used the same punch around the horse and sleigh cut-out from Sleigh Ride Framelits.  These two circles were then glued together and placed on the Night of Navy square which we  stamped and heat embossed with the sun from Kinda Eclectic.  The banner is from Endless Thanks and the words are from Holly Jolly Greetings.  We finished off the inside of the card by cutting out “merry” from Christmas Greetings Thinlits & Night of Navy card stock and stamped “Christmas” below it.  It’s a fun card and pretty simple to make!

Flurry of Wishes in Rich Purples


Flurry of Wishes, by Krista Thomas,

Do you love Stampin’ Up!’s Rich Razzleberry and Blackberry Bliss as much as I do?  They are so rich together, especially with the metallic gold accents and embossing.  For this Flurry of Wishes card, I added  banners of Melon Mambo and metallic gold behind the snowflakes and some flourishes from Everything Eleanor. I finished the card off with a few gold sequins scattered about.

Cozy Christmas in Wonderland

I finished up my 2015 Christmas Stamp Camp this weekend, and one of the cards the participants made was this one.  We masked the moon with a 1 3/8″ circle punched from a Post It note, stamped the cottage from Cozy Christmas and then sponged everything with Night of Navy.  Next we removed the moon mask and stamped Santa and the reindeer in front of the moon.  After stamping the trees from Wonderland and the “Silent Night” and fox from Jingle All the Way, we assembled the card and were done.  It is really a quick and simple card to make.  I hope you like it!

Vintage Leaves are Falling with Stampin’ Up!


I love fall colors because they’re so rich and warm and  I’m falling in love with Stampin’ Up’s Vintage Leaves stamp set!  It’s easy to create fun, detailed cards when you use Stampin’ Up! products, because they take the guesswork out of color matching and coordination.  For every cardstock color they have the matching ink pad and marker.  For many of the colors, there are matching ribbons, buttons and other accessories.  No more frustration over trying to find an ink pad to match your cardstock!

When I made this card, I used Rich Razzleberry for the card base, then mats of Mossy Meadow and So Saffron.  I stamped “thank you” on the So Saffron panel before running it through my Big Shot with the Woodland’s Embossing Folder.

The leaves were stamped with Soft Suede and then cut out with the Leaflet Framelits, and then they were sponged with Rich Razzleberry, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive.
