Hello, gate fold card

I found this great technique using the stand-up framelits by Stephanie Barnard.  I would never have thought of doing this!!  This is the video I found. Below I is my card.  I found it a bit hard to take great pictures.  Might have to think about finding something to help hold these types of projects in the future.

This was a really quick and easy card and gave me a bit more room to play with.  I threw this one together as I watched the video, so the next one I'm going to have to put more thought into it.

hello bicycle

I am loving this months stamp and die hard club kit from The Stamps of life.  Such a wonderful "springy" set to start getting me in the mood for spring and summer!! I used a great sketch/color challenge from Always Playing with Paper.  I haven't done one of their challenges before and this was a fun one. 

You could choose between the color combo, the sketch or do both.  I chose both.  I turned the sketch sideways for my card.  The colors fit right in with the stamp set.  Can't wait to get outside!

INK: licorice, guava, artichoke, melon mambo blendabilities
CS: basic grey, white, guava, artichoke, celebrate collection paper pad
ACCESS: pink twine, bicycle die set, 1" square punch


Happy Birthday!

Good morning.  I finally finished up over 80 birth announcements for a girlfriend and just felt the need to create a birthday card! This card is created for the challenge over at Seize the Birthday.

Every challenge on their site is a birthday challenge but I love adding the "toppings" if possible.  This challenge topping is "Make the Sentiment the Focal Point"

and here is my card
