Tie Dyed

Hello Stampers,
Today I  want to feature the stamp set Tie Dyed from the Occasions Catalog.  The two cards below have the same lay out but by changing the colors and title, I have two different cards for different occasions.  There are many other possibilities for this stamp set, so you may want to add this set to your collection of stamps.




To purchase this stamp set #143008 Click HERE to place your online order.



Great News!  If you did not purchase the Stitched Shaped Framelits Dies, you will have a second opportunity.  The Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies will be available January 16th!!  Theses dies are awesome.  I love using them to add the extra detail on my cards. I used the stitched oval, to die cut the word Cheers in the above left card.  There are four dies for each shape. Be sure to place your order before they run out of stock.  Stitched Shape Framelits Dies #145372,

Don't forget to check my classes at Hobby Lobby!  You are welcome to join the fun.  Remember to email me to save you a space.

Thank You for visiting my blog.  Today is a special day for me,  It's my mom's birthday and even though she is no longer here on earth today, she is close to my heart and memory.  It is because of her I signed up with Stampin Up and stamp today with joy.
Heart to You,

Diamond Fold using the Sweet Cupcake Stamp set

For a Birthday Day Celebration, we made this card in class last week.  The Sweet Cupcake Stamp set along with the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits Dies were used for the center cupcake in the picture below.  It is a fun and easy stamp set to use, when building the layers.  Each stamp is marked by a number so you know which stamp to use in the steps for the final look.  For the side panels I used the Sprinkles Punch to decorate the end panels.  The heart at the top of the cupcake was punched from the Owl Punch.

The Diamond Fold Card makes the cupcake stand out.  This Diamond fold is a quick easy card to make.  You do need a 12" by 12" sheet of card stock to cut a 4" x 12" strip.  From the 12" x 12" sheet you can make three cards!  When open, the card can stand on its own to add a special decoration display.  I added white card stock on the back panels for a note to be written.







I had fun trying different color combinations to make the frosting for cards.  So many possibilities!!



                The stamp set Sweet Cupcake and Cupcake Cutouts Fraamelits Dies.

The 12" x 4" strip of card stock is scored at 2", 4", 8", and 10".  At the  6" measurement, I marked the top and bottom of the card stock.  I then scored from the 6"mark at the top to the bottom 10" score line and then from the 6" mark at the top to the bottom of the 2" score line.  This makes the diagonal lines. I repeated for the bottom 6" mark to the top of the 8" & 2" score lines to make the other diagonal lines.  Pinch between the 2" & 4" center and the 8" & 10" center pushing  the outside panels behind and you have your diamond card.

To make the triangle shapes:  Cut a square ( one for each color) 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" and then cut it in half.

 Cut in half again


You need 2 large triangles and 4 small triangles of each color.  For the center square under the cupcake you need to cut a 2 1/2 x 2 1/2 square.  I used designer series paper for the small square and two large triangles.  The 2 panels on the side of the card measure:  1 3/4" x 5 2/5".

Thank You for visiting my blog.  If you wish to order online please click HERE  .
Hope you have a great day.  I will be posting a new stamp set that will be available for you to purchase in the month of August, so be sure to check back.
