Classic ornament card

Here's a cute Christmas card I made that is timeless!


Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Merry Moments Designer Series Paper, Cherry Cobber (scrap)
Stamps: Embellished Ornaments
Ink: Mossy Meadow, Crumb Cake (sponging) and Cherry Cobbler
Accessories: Curvy Corner trio punch, Delicate Ornaments thinlits (used as a template for sponging ornament and decal cut out), Dauber sponge, Lots of Labels framelits (Thinking cut out)

directions


Here are the directions for how to cut the paper for the Corner Fold Card.

1.  Cut card base to 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (standard size)
2. Score at 4 1/4"
3. Using a trimmer, line up the card lengthwise (along the 8 1/2" side) at 3" mark and cut from 2 1/2" to 4 7/8" using the trimmer guides
4. Turn paper lining up along the 5 1/2", line up the 3" mark (where you cut before) and cut from 3" to 5/8" using the trimmer guide
5. Now here's where you need to be careful- taking the top (cut) corner, fold corner toward you.  Keeping the creases tight use a bone folder to flatten down square. Secure bottom corner with glue dot.

Square measures 2 5/8" x 2 3/4", great for layering!

Fall card



Happy almost Thanksgiving! Here's a beautiful corner fold card for you!

Paper: Tip Top Taupe, Cajun Craze (poor color only gets love this time of year), Whisper White
Ink: Cajun Craze, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive reinkers, Cajun Craze ink pad, versamark
Stamp Set: White Christmas- trees and Sheltering Tree- leaves and message
Accessories: Blender pen, Neutrals button pack, mini glue dot (hold button down), dimensionals (pop up words), Decorative label punch (word edges)

Stamp tree from Christmas set at least 2 times to fill in the background.
I then used my blender pen dipped in old olive to fill in the grass

How to make the trees multi-colored: 
Wet 2-3 folded paper towels with water (to fully saturated then wring out so not dripping)
Place in empty stamp storage container
Drip reinker bottles in 3 colors randomly to make the base for the leaves

Use the leaves stamp, stamp directly onto the paper paper towel and then to your Whisper White cardstock. I stamped left and right on the image to fully fill in.  You can stamp up to 3 times to spread around and align with tree images. You can also softly stamp the grass to have 'fallen' leaves. Or use the smaller leaves stamp for just a few.


Will do separate steps for how to make/fold the card itself in the next post.

Yummy treats for a family Quincenera!

My other love than scrapping is baking and I may not get the opportunity to make treats as much as I used to but my cousin's daughter recently celebrated her Quince and I was able to combine my 2 passions!


Retired Quince SU set from the Hispanic line. Came out so cute! The Coastal Cabana (retired) matched so well with her colors! Rhinestones not SU (sorry!)

Boxes! 

Oh and I made Chocolate Chip cookies, 2 per bag for a cute little to go item!
