Tree Fold-it Card

Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing the Tree Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. This die set is much larger than all of the previous fold-it die sets that The Stamps of Life sells. The tree measures 5″ x 7″ and comes with so many cute pieces to decorate the tree — an owl with nest, flower, leaves, apple, acorn, and an extra tree bush. Watch my YouTube video to see all of the components as well a 2-card tutorial. I made one card as a fold-it card and another with the tree on the front of a 5×7 card base.

Flower Pot Fold-It – 2 Cards

Today on my blog, I’m sharing two cards that I made with the Flower Pot Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life. You can use this die set to make an A2 sized card with a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It can be used for just about any occasion — Birthdays, Thank You’s, Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Thinking of You, Sympathy, Get Well, etc.

The die set comes with six dies — two dies to make the flower pot and four dies to make the flowers. All you need to do is to supply the paper and embellishments!

Watch my video tutorial here:

Wreath Builder Fall Cards

Hello! Today on my blog I’m sharing two cards that I made with the Gina K. Designs Wreath Builder Templates.

Gina K. Designs Wreath Builder Fall Cards

The Wreath Builder Templates come in various sizes, but the ones I used for my cards are the 3.75-inch and 4-inch templates. These are so easy to use to make a perfect wreath with your stamps. I also used the Gina K. Designs Autumn clear stamps. These stamps are great for fall-themed cards and Thanksgiving cards. You will need to use a stamping platform with the Wreath Builder Templates. You can use any, but I prefer the Misti.

My YouTube video shows how to use the Wreath Builder Template and how to assemble the cards.
