Thursday 3" ers...

Cut a lovely piece of 12x12 Awash in Beauty paper into 3" wide strips...and what do you get? 

Well ... and very simply... 16 of these cards from one pack of papers... 

I have set on a DL card base (aka Tall Skinny card) but you can  set on a standard A6 (or US A2) card blank too... you'd just cut more of the paper height away!

And for those of you asking me about paper kits and tutorials over the past week... here you go... just scroll back to see more pictures of the other 2 fancy fold cards included...

My Awash in Beauty co-ordinating paper kit for those of you in the UK... and PDF tutorials for everyone else and UK! 

I would REALLY love your support with these kits... 

Just CLICK HERE to email me for a Paypal invoice or more details... but don't forget to tell me which kit you would like and the relevant email address... Order going in imminently if you wish to be sure of getting these lovely papers... but I can do another round for the end of the month...

And remember if you add a £45+bundle/order... then you will qualify for a Sale A Bration freebie... 

Note that the Paper Kit does not count towards qualifying Sale A Bration spends...

Fun Fold Friday - Awash with Beauty Pop Up Concertina Fold Card

Such a pretty floral suite and papers... introducing the gorgeous Awash with Beauty suite...

Thought I'd just quickly pop on and share a card... another pop up concertina fold card... as trying to find the time for a longer post with all the details is proving much more difficult at the moment... 

Combination of PC/technical issues... and a few more parties and meet ups as we all try to live more normally!! 

And oh... a very hot heatwave phase here this week! Have to admit... I just hid!! Though at least I did sort a couple of technical issues as I did!

Simple for Saturday - Making a Difference




Though I have dubbed this my Elvis card.... it's that flash of a gold jacket that does it!

Using the exclusive Host set, Begin With A Dream that you can earn for free with qualifying orders ( or by joining a Craft Spa club!). Click HERE for more details and another sample...

Image stamped in Memento Black... coloured using Stampin' Blends... mainly Basic Black...

And then a touch of Gilded Leafing flakes added... either using a Versamark pen (not SU!) and Heat & Stick Powder... or just a bit of Tombow Mono Multi Purpose Liquid Glue... just wait for the Tombow glue to dry and go tacky...

Greeting stamped in both black and red and then fussy cut into little strips...

And stamped panel ink-edged by placing each edge direct onto the ink pad...
