Framed Photograph Card

This is National Photograph Month and the challenge was to create a card that looks like a photograph by putting a border around the image and making the image glossy. 

I used window sheet for the glass effect on  my project. I cut my frame by using the Bigz Top Note Die. 

Score This - Pyramid Card

The Stampin' Up! Creative Crew's challenge is a Catalog Focus: scoring tools.  Use all or one of these scoring tools--Simply Scored Tool, Simply Scored Borders Plate and/or Simply Scored Diagonal Plate to add interest to a gatefold card. 

For my project, I made this Pyramid Card.  The interesting thing about this project is that you can make it as large or as small as you want as long as you start with 2 square pieces of card stock.

The card unfolds so that it can be inserted into an A2 envelope if you use 4" x 4" squares.  I used magnets to hold my piramid card together.

Embossing Folders: Square Lattice, Fancy Fan.
Stamps: Loving Thoughts, flower Shop, Blooming With Kindness
Punches: Label Bracket, Pansy
Dies: Beautiful Butterflies Bigz Die

Stretching My Creativity

As part of the Stampin' Up! Creative Crew, this month we were to use a technique of our own and to choose colors that imitate the Stampin' Up! watercolor wonder designer papers.  

My project is a Gatefold Easel Card.  I stamped whisper white card stock with one of the SU! Flower Shop stamps to imitate the SU! Watercolor Wonder DSP & adhered it to the center of card Gatefold card.
