Tri-Fold Angle Card ~ Two ways ~ Sneak Peek Hand Penned Suite!

To know me is to know that I LOVE cards that have a special fold! I guess it's the drafter in me! I have always wanted to make a Tri-Fold Angle card but I found it intimidating. I was not sure how to adjust the measurements for the layering pieces of designer paper and I was a bit overwhelmed. Then I decided I needed to put my big girl panties on and figure it out! After all, I was a drafter for over 20 years and I'm not afraid of a ruler! LOL

In this first video, I show you how to create the Tri-Fold Angle card using a 12" x 12" piece of cardstock. This is the easiest way as your card base has to be divided into 3 equal sections (4", 4", 4" =12"), Piece of cake!

I am also using the High Tide stamp set that will soon be retiring. I will miss this set so much as I love the coastal inspiration it gives.

Here is a picture of the dimensions I used when creating with the 12" x 12" cardstock. The dimensions for the designer paper are written in red ink.

Here is a complete list of supplies I used to create the High Tide Tri-Fold Angle Card: High Tide stamp set (#143006), Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (#154288), Cardstock: Soft Suede (#115318), Basic White (#159276). Classic Ink Pads: Soft Suede (#147115), Misty Moonlight (#153118), Night of Navy (#147110), Smoky Slate (#147113), Momento Black (#132708). Miscellaneous: Champagne Shimmer Paint (#147044), Misty Moonlight Ribbon (#153624), Stampin' Dimensionals (#104430).

Knowing that most card makers purchase 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock, I wanted to show you a second option using this size to create the Tri-Fold Angle card. It's easy to create both sizes when you know how! I am sharing a Sneak Peek of the Hand Penned Suite that is in the new 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and will be available May 4th so put these supplies on your wish list so you will be ready to order them when the new catalog goes live!

Here is a picture of the dimensions I used when creating with the 8 1/2" x 11"" cardstock. The dimensions for the designer paper layers are written in red ink.

White Shimmer Paint Meets Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper!

The fun continues with the White Shimmer paint (# 147046) that will soon be retiring! The Blending Brushes (#153611) are now available so you will want to order them too. They make shimmering your cardstock and designer series papers a breeze not to mention the blending of ink colors too! In my last post, I shared a video on how to shimmer your cardstock using our blending brushes with the Friends are Like Seashells bundle (#156205) and the Seashells 3D embossing folder (#154309). Today I'm sharing a picture where I shimmered the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper (#154288) and it made such a difference in having the seashells "pop" and really shine! The technique is the same for the designer paper as it was for regular cardstock. So watch the video and please let me know if you have any questions at all. I am happy to answer them and help you create anyway I can.

2020-2021 Annual catalog retiring list is here!

Last chance header

It's that time of the year to say good bye to many of our current stamp sets and accessories. It's always bitter - sweet as some of my favorite products will be leaving BUT I know I will find new favorites in the New 2021-2022 Annual catalog that will be released on May 4th!

I am a visual person so instead of reading the 28 page retiring list, let me take you on a tour of the Annual catalog where I show you what is retiring and what items are reduced - some up to 75% off! Just watch the video below.

I also made a video sharing over 50 card samples. They were created using quite a few of the retiring stamp sets. Many of the cards were made by other demonstrators that I have received in various swaps but I also had the pleasure of creating  quite a few of the cards myself! I will miss these stamp sets but it was a pleasure creating with them while I could!

Both are are gorgeous products that coordinate so well!

The Butterfly Brilliance stamp set is one large cling stamp of 6 beautiful detailed butterflies!


The coordinating Brilliant Wings dies are a must! There are 12 dies in all. One of course, is a large die to cut all 6 butterflies from the stamp set at one time. It also coordinates with the 6 butterflies found in the 6" x 6" Butterfly Bijou Designer paper! This will make creating simple and fast!
