Circle Card Framelit Die: the Long and Short of It

Learned this great idea from Sandi MacIver.  It's the short/long version on the circle die card.  Just cut your cardstock 4 1/4" X 11".               Place it under your circle die and place your cutting pad over the die BUT only on the left, covering just the left edge  to the complete circle.                        When you run this thru the big shot, it will only cut where you have the second cutting pad.                            Then remove and place that same side onto your Simply Scored and score it at 7".  Cut out a scallop die for the Hello Honey scallop.  I used the circle framelits for the Sweet Baby sentiment.  This is so fun and easy, you have to try it.

Host a Stampin' Up! Party--Bloom with Hope

 You can earn this set for FREE by hosting your own stamp class or event.  Bloom with Hope works so nicely with our new Blendabilities Markers.  Here's 2 fun cards that I did with this set.

Bloom with Hope  #133952

Here's a fun fold that I learned from Deb Valder.  Just take 2 pieces of cardstock (white and grey), fold in half and fold them onto each other.  Keep the 2 front pieces together (open out the back 2 so that they are flat and just 2 halves overlapping.
Run them together thru the Big Shot with an oval framelit die. (the smaller one).  Then take just the white piece alone and place the larger framelit around the smaller hole you just cut, centering it.  Then cut.  Glue the back 2 pieces together with the white being on the inside and top and the grey being on the back and inside.
 Same thing with this card except it opens from the right rather than the bottom.
 You won't have a cardstock line on the inside...this picture was taken before I learned to just use 2 whole pieces of cardstock to create a simple construction.

Please note: Blendabilities will be available sometime in July if not sooner.  Here's hopin'!
You can have your own party by placing an order HERE of $150 or more so that you can earn your free set.                                 OR
email me to set a date and have a class with a few of your friends!  It's so much fun.

We did this project at my downline meeting on Saturday and I think that everyone realized how easy it really was.

Dip-Dying Cardstock

Ombre, the French term meaning, "to shade",  is the term often used for the look of dip-dying.  And it's quite fashionable these days.  Why not in our crafting as well!
This little tag is dip-dyed and here's a little tutorial on how to do it with paper and ink.
I hope you enjoy...give it a try
