Can you believe that Christmas is fast approaching??

It will be here before we know it. So we have started making Christmas cards here at Simply Stamping with Narelle. We should have a nice stash ready for the festive season when it rolls around. We even made a matching box to keep them in.  It was all about Baubles here in last nights class.

The wonderful Easel card

Today is the last of the Fancy Fold cards. This one is the Easel card. There are so many variations on this card, so I thought I would show you the more simplified version. This card has impact but is so very deceivingly easy to make.

Another Fancy Fold

Just thought I would be a bit different today and share a Fancy Fold card...lol. I love the way this card turned out. It has a summery feel to it eventhough the colours are not immediately associated with summer. I think it is the gorgeous flowers that give it that vibe.

If you haven't seen this style of card before I will attempt to describe how it opens. The panel with  the Thank You on it, is adhered to the right hand panel and is held in place by slipping the left edge just under the Baked Brown Sugar Boutique Button. To open you lift this panel, then fold out the panel on the left, and finally the right hand panel to reveal the message inside.

Supplies used:-
Stamps: Perfectly Penned, Secret Garden, Petite Pairs
Paper: Very Vanilla, Ventian Romance DSP
Inks: Island Indigo, Soft Suede
Accessories: Secret Garden Framelits, Labels Collection Framelits, Simply Scored, Trimmer, Big Shot Magnetic Platform, Big Shot, Sponge Daubers, In Colour Boutique Details

I hope you have enjoyed looking at this card and I have inspired you to create one yourself. If you are not confident enough to try it alone, then why not contact me to find out when this class will be scheduled again, or if you are not local, then talk to me about the kit and tutorial option.

Specialty Paper

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to show you that uses a specialty paper. Over at Late Night Stampers the challenge this fortnight is to create a card that showcases paper. So I decided to use a specialty paper.

Simply Stamping with Narelle

As you can see this is a clear acetate paper with a lovely pattern on it. To adhere it to the card I scored one edge and folded it over to stick at the back of a  plain piece of card. This also gives it a dimensional look as it is raised off the card front. This  is trully a special card that would be lovely for a special occassion.

Supplies used:-
Stamps: Perfectly Penned, Flower Shop
Paper: Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Quatrefancy Specialty DSP, Whisper White
Inks: Strawberry Slush
Accessories: Pansy Punch, Large Basic Pearls, Strawberry Slush 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Ribbon

Thanks for dropping  by and hope you have been inspired. I would  love to see you enter the challenge over at Late Night Stampers.

Cheers for now,
Narelle
