Fancy Screen

Take a look at my swap for our Luv2StampGA team meeting last weekend!

    Fancy Screen Card in Perfect Plum

The idea can from Ann's Happy Stamper UTube. In her video, she had an inch in the top and bottom of the card. Here is an Emerald Envy card like that before punching the "feet".
After adding the Feet I found it was not very stable.

First Card in Emerald Envy with an inch at the top and bottom
Perfect Plum with "Feet"

So I changed the score line to 1/2 inch and 1 1/2 inches for a more stable footing. In the directions you can see that I used the Avant Garden and Delicate Details stamp sets from Sale-A-Bration (SAB).
Side Panels in Perfect Plum and Emerald Envy
BASE: 6.5 x 11; SCORE long side 2.75, 5.5, 8.25; 1.5, 9.5 short side 1.5 and 6.0
Punch DECOATIVE LABEL PUNCH in the center of each of the 4 panels (half way up the punch) on 1.5” border.
PANELS (Whisper White) 2 each of 4 ¼ X 2 ½, 4 ¼ X 1+1/8, 4 ¼ X 1+3/8 (I cut Whisper White in half 4 ¼ x 11; then cut 5” (cut it in half – 2.5 each), 2.25” (cut it in half – 1+1/8 each), then cut 2.75 (cut in half – 1+3/8 each), leaving a 4.25 X 1 scrap)
CUT BASE between the 1.5 and 9.5 score marks
DECORATE EACH PANNELS: Delicate Details (SAB stamp set- outside two panels) Avant Garden (SAB stamp set) inner panels
INK: Perfect plum, Old Olive, So Saffron, Basic Black; (also used Emerald Envy, Sahara Sand, Basic Black)
OTHER SUPPLIES: Wink-of-Stella, Adhesive, Score and cutting blade
FOLDING: Center screens: mountain, valley, mountain, valley, mountain
             Borders: valley, mountain, valley, mountain, valley

PAPER NEEDED: 1 Base at 6 ½ X 11; Half sheet Neutral (4 ¼ x 10 inches)
STAMP SETS USED: Delicate Details, Avant Garden (both 2017 SAB stamp sets)

And I'm Back......

     It has been about two years since I updated this Blogger site and many things have changed! The two most important are that I have retired from teaching school but have continued as a Stampin'Up!demonstrator. My business has been slow going but lots of fun.  I have enjoyed learning and sharing with people close to me.  I have also moved and am beginning to settle in my new location.  I am closer to my youngest daughter (She lives just across the lake! Too bad we don't have boats and there is no bridge. So she is actually about 20 minutes away (fifteen if she is driving). I have a church family and a group of 6 to 8 single lady friends (from several churches in the area) that I spend time with as well.

I ask that you all have a blessed 2017 and join me in my new endeavors.

Check out these quick and easy projects!  The tiny treat box (item 135829 for 25 2x2x2 inch boxes) added Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape (Item 137789) and a bow using the Bow Builder Punch (item 137414) and Designer Series Paper(DSP) from Stacked With Love DSP Stack (item 137779)
The card uses paper the same Designer Series Paper Stack , stamps from Hello Life (137136) and the Happy Hearts Textured Impressions Embossing Folder(item 13364), a little card stock and ribbon.
I make another card using the same stamp set and DSP stack but I don't have a picture of it right now. (sorry)

 My plans are to make more designs with these same products. A real sweet value.

HAPPY 2015.  New beginings for wonderful year!

As we all start this year let us have a blessed year, living as an example, thinking of and giving to others. I ask that your lives be blessed personally, professionally, and above all, spiritually.

To start the year, I am beginning a new group that will meet Friday about 6:00 pm. Friday Friends will be a time to spend with friends crafting and introducing them to cardmaking. I have two ideas for this week-- a shaker card from the paper pumpkin products and a card using foil. 

I am available at other times and am willing to do a Skype meeting. Email or call me if you are interested in meeting the first Friday of each month.
