Heartfelt Creations Lilies & Intrcut Dies

I made this card for my daughters 30th birthday. Where does the tim go? LOL. I used Heartfelt Creations Sunrise Lily stamps,  Sunrise Lily Dies, Decorative Corner Blossoms Die  & Birthday Blessings from Gina K. The design is a CAS of Christina Griffith on YouTube with my spin:-)


Technique, Double-Z-Fold - Cas-ual friday's

This is actually a Christmas card but the Z-Fold can be applied to any design. It's really fun when you can suspend something on the inside. Here are the dimensions:

Base: 4 1/4" X 11'
Score at 5 1/5"
From one of the ends score at 2 3/4"
The fold at 2 3/4" is a mountain fold (fold back)
The 5 1/2" fold is a valley (fold towards you)

1 1/2" X11"
From one of the ends score at 2 3/4"
The 5 1/2" fold is a mountain fold (fold back)
The fold at 2 3/4" is a valley (fold towards you)

Add any layers of designer paper and/or matting you'd like. TIP - it gets real heavy real fast if done like mine. I'd use 80# base next time instead of 110# if matting and adding designer paper.

Glue only 2 3/4" of thin strip on the 5 1/2" end and adhere. On the opposite end glue the 2 3/" piece to the back panel.

Fast & Easy Friend Card Set - CAS-ual Friday's

Hi, I made these cards just before Thanksgiving and didn't have time to edit. But changing the designer paper changes the season:-) I don't often mass produce ) if 6 is a mass LOL) but I loved these sentiments from CAS-ual Friday's Mon Ami set. I heat embossed with gold and copper. 

CAS-ual Friday's has really great customer service and super cute stamps, be sure to check them out. Another sentiment set I love is Wonderful Words

Cutting With Multiple Dies Heartfelt Creations Woodsy Wonderland

 I am back from my extended break after the holidays. I have been playing with new products and doing some organizing. I am currently working on multiple Heartfelt Creation projects. One of them is a home decor mixed media. In preparation I stamped. colored and cut many images to play with. I have been making a lot of flowers as well, coming soon:-)

In this video I demonstrate how to cut a whole set of stamps multiple times using a technique Jennifer Mcquire shared. I also show how I deal with any white edges left (I hate hem LOL).
