Little Ladybug

There are only a few days left of Sale-a-Bration so I thought I’d better ink up my Little Ladybug stamp set at least once before it’s gone. I stamped the flower on Pear Pizzazz and die cut it. I then stamped on So Saffron using So Saffron and then using Crushed Curry dabbed on the center using a sponge dauber. I die cut the flower and place it over the Pear Pizzazz one. The ladybug was a challenge for me. I’m very critical of my coloring skills and I didn’t like how it looked using the blends or the watercolor pencils, so I stamped on Real Red and Smoky Slate and cut them out to layer on the one I colored.

Triangle Trifold Twist Card

Last summer Susan Campfield showed us how to make this Triangle Trifold Twist card and I just made one. I colored the inside bird using the Balmy Blue and Pumpkin Pie watercolor pencils and a blender pen. I also sprayed it with my Frost White Shimmer Paint mixed with rubbing alcohol in a mister to try to match the specialty paper.

You need two pieces of cardstock that are 4″ x 10 1/4″, scored at 5 1/2″. On the smaller section, measure 4″ in and make a mark. Score from that mark to the corner. You do this on both pieces then you adhere the 5 1/2″ pieces together like below making sure the front triangles come together. I would recommend liquid glue to allow some wiggle room.

Interlocking Fun Fold Card

I follow Sam at Mixed Up Craft and she did a Beautiful Double Concertina Inter-Lock Card. I made a version of this that is 4″ x 5 1/2″ so it can fit into an A2 envelope. I also added a couple extra score lines so you can see the squares on the inside.

Rocco Rose Cardstock5 ½” x 8”; scored at 4”
5 ½” x 8 ½”; scored at ½”, 4”
3” X 12”; scored at ½”, 2”, 5”, 6”, 7”, 10”, 11 ½”

The Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper and Very Vanilla cardstock are cut 1/8″ smaller than the scored section. The 8″ piece of Rocco Rose is the left section and the extra ½” from the right side is glued on the backside.

I used the third from smallest of the bigger rectangles to make the openings.

I used my ruler to center it on the panel like I did the first one.

By The Dock Impressions

I meant to use this bundle next month but apparently I was too excited to use it. 🙂 This was the second card we made at my last Cookies & Cards class. I wanted to use it to make a scene and I used the Lily Impressions Designer Series Paper as the water in the background.
