Fancy Folds for Christmas

Sorry this is late folks - been looking after a poorly husband this weekend. He's a little under the weather and needed some TLC.
Back to business though and here is my card for this week's 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown - the theme this week (if you couldn't guess from the post title) is 'Fancy Fold Cards'





This really isn't that hard to do. The main card was decorated and the fold out part was made by concertinaing a piece of black CS and then placing it on a tag die with the folds lined up above the bottom cutting blade. I used the retired Stampin' Up Two Tags die and my folds were placed on the die just above the half way mark - in this case there is a fold line on the die so it was easy to see. Decorative pieces were added to the extra long tag and some sentiments and then it was folded up and attached to the front of the card with some ribbon to keep it closed.

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Joyful Christmas
Ink: Real Red
Card Stock: Naturals Ivory, Real Red, Basic Black
Paper: Polka Dot Parade DSP, Silver Glimmer Paper
Accessories: Big Shot, Two Tags Die (retired), Scallop Trim Punch, Very Vanilla Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones

CC&S - Sketch

Good morning - it's Thursday and that must mean only one thing........ a new challenge over on CAS - Colurs & Sketches. This week we have a sketch for you - take a look


This one had me thinking I can tell you but it just so happened that a new stamp set landed on my desk recently so I thought I'd have a go with that 


It was going to be ultra CAS and a one layer card until I messed up my sentiment! So I quickly saved what I could, added a red background and didn't attempt the sentiment a second time!

Materials - Stampin' Up
Stamps: Daydream Medallions
Ink: Versamark, Real Red
Card Stock: Whisper White, Real Red
Accessories: Gold EP, Big Shot, Floral Frames, Basic Rhinestone

Nature in The Male Room

Morning all - it's time for a new challenge in The Male Room and this week's challenge is NATURE. Take a look at my card


I have been having fun with my brayer again - it really is one of my favourite things to use and gives such a beautiful effect.
I have a confession to make too - the stamps are not Stampin' Up!!!!!!!!! However I do think they compliment my Stampin' Up colours perfectly and I have had my eye on those hares for a long time now.
Here's another piece I did with them - this isn't a card but I have framed it as a picture


This was a practise piece as I followed an on line tutorial just to get the feel of the stamps but I loved the result so much at the end that I have framed it to go on my wall!

Stampin' Up Materials Used
Stamps: Everything Eleanor (Bird on the wire)
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive,Soft Sky, Not Quite Navy (retired) Midnight Muse, So Saffron, Black Stazon
Card Stock: Whisper White, Very Vanilla
Accessories: Brayer,
