Funky Folds

Since I have not posted in quite a while - I will be sharing some of the projects we have made in classes over the past few months.  First - I must say I am ever so grateful to the many "creative souls" that are Stampin' Up! demonstrators who share their ideas and creativity with all of us.  We have a wonderful website dedicated to demonstrators only to be able to review and get ideas to share with our classes, that we may not have been able to create without the help of our "Stampin' Up! family".  Sometimes I borrow their ideas and change them up some to make it work with what I have or like and sometimes I just LOVE the way it looks  just the way they created it - that I CASE (copy and share everything) exactly their color combinations, etc.  So - again I want to say THANK YOU to all my fellow demonstrators who make this business a joy and a little bit easier for me.

These cards are from a Funky Folds class in August:

Our first card was made using the On the Grow (retired) set from the Summer Mini, along with the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch.  We watercolored the flowers and jar and added some Crystal Effects to the jar to add dimension so it looked more realistic.  The designer paper was from Beyond the Garden together with Pacific Point, Wild Wasabi, and Daffodil Delight CS.  Add some bling and you are done.  A very cool card that can be left up and displayed by the recipient nicely.

Another version was made using the new Lace Ribbon Border Punch, which I just LOVE!
 Next - was an easel card using the Top Note Die and My Friend stamp set with an added bonus of the bird from our Bird Builder Punch. We added texture to the bird's wings by running it through the Big Shot using the Elegant Lines Impression Folder.  I created this card from the ideas of 2 separate cards found on Stampin' Connection and hope you like how it turned out.  

Of course, we add just a few extra touches here and there with the banner for our sentiment and the new "In Color" Designer Printed Brads to finish it off.  Inks used were Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo of the 2011-13 In Colors. 

And then - we did a cute Christmas Card:
These color combos were seen on several websites (Dawn Griffith and Connie Babbert) and I loved them. The stamp set used is Snow Much Fun. I colored the skinny snowman's scarf, hat band, carrot and birds and then added some Dazzling Details.  I LOVE this stuff - so much neater than glitter (my customer's know I like the look of glitter - but glitter is NOT my friend!  I don't like how it seems to get everywhere - I guess it's a phobia of some sort for me!) So Dazzling Details is GREAT for me!  Glitter look without the MESS!  :o)
Color combos are: Old olive CS and DP with Black & White and Pool Party, Blushing Bride and White - who would have thought we would make a Christmas card with a color named Pool Party??  Only in Florida!!  :o)

Hope you enjoyed the Funky Folds projects. 
Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping!
