Everything Eleanor

Here is my last swap card from convention. It features my new favorite stamp set Everything Eleanor. This stamp set has flowers, some scrolling, a frame, and a bird . Soo cute. My card also features a fun fold I saw online that I haven't seen much of, it is a winged card, I think.

This was my Over the Top entry, it has quite a few details to it like several layers and embellishments. I love the colors they are from the NEW In Color collection, Midnight Muse, Razpberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit, and a touch of Primrose Petals.

SUPPLIES
Stamp Set: Everything Eleanor, Fabulous Phrases
Ink: summer starfruit, midnight muse, raspberry ripple and chocolate chip
Paper: raspberry ripple, whisper white, crumb cake and primrose petals card stock; raspberry ripple, midnight muse and summer starfruit dsp
Accessories: scallop trim border punch, 2-3/8" scallop punch, modern label punch, white stitched grosgrain, In Color dahlias, and lots of dimentionals. 



The layers on this card are quite fun. The back layer is 4-14/ x 5-1/2 scored at 1" from each end. The layer with the scalloped edges is 4-1/4 x 5-1/4" scored at 7/8" from each end and then scalloped. The center panel is 3-1/2" x 5-1/2", scored at 1" from only one end. This last piece is sandwiched between the two panels when you assemble them, with the 1" piece in between. You will have to trim off a small amount in front. 
I really liked playing with this card it is so fun.

So while Convention was exciting and fun it was great to get home to my family. I missed my two boys terribly. Yesterday I got to spend the day with my older son, Rowen, at a nearby lake. He got to paddle around in a canoe and then try out wake boarding, and the program was completely free, woo hoo. He had a blast! And I did too :)

Sweet Cupcake

It has been a while since I last posted a project. I have been busy with the kiddos and their very busy school and social schedule. I did find time to play with my Create a Cupcake set and the center stair fun fold. We made this card at my last stamp club meeting. We used different colors though.
Supplies:
stamp set: Create A Cupcake
paper: pink pirouette, melon mambo, early espresso and whisper white cardstock; ice cream parlor designer series paper (SAB)
ink: melon mambo, early espresso, and pretty in pink
accessories: cupcake punch, old olive taffeta ribbon, dimentionals, stampin write markers, and basic rhinestones

The measurements and instructions are quite simple. The cardstock measures 4.25" x 11". You cut a slit along each side 3/4" in, from the 1" to 6.5".

Along the short side score your cardstock at 1", 2" and at 6.5" from the outside in. Then score at the 5.5" from the left cut line to the right cut line. I have added a small drawing here to show you. The thin lines are the cut lines and the thick represent your score lines.


Thanks for looking!

Baby Blossom Tent Card

Here is a fun fold called a tent card. The card featured the Baby Blossoms stamp set and Springtime Vintage designer series paper. The center is cut out using the top note die. You could easily use the extra large circle or scallop punches as well. The card base measures 4.5" x 10", scored at 5". The bottom is connected by another piece of cardsock measuring 4.25" x 4", scored at 1", 2", and 3" vertically. This bottom portion is accordian folded and glued to the inside bottom of the card, allowing it to stand. And the front appears as a window.









Supplies
Stamps: Baby Blossoms
Paper: baja breeze, confetti vanilla, not quite navy and very vanilla cardstock; springtime vintage designer series paper
Ink: not quite navy, baja breeze, crumb cake and pear pizzazz
Accessories: baja breeze seam binding, decorative label punch, dotted scallop ribbon punch and the top note die
