Gate Fold Plus

I got the directions for this card from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts here:  It is quite fancy but actually quite simple to make.

For the flower on the front I used the SU May Flower framelits dies.  The inside flowers are from the coordinating SU Falling Flowers stamp set.  The sentiments came from the Avant Garden stamp set (free) in the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I added the ribbon to give a clue about how to open the card.

This is a really pretty card in person and was a lot of fun to make.

So much fun that I made another one.

The stamps used for this card were from  Friskars Precious Baby Quotes that I have had for a couple of years.

Thanks for coming by.

SU Lift Me Up

My first attempt with the Lift Me Up set.  I just happened to have the background paper as a scrap on my desk so went with it.  So the color scheme wasn't planned, it was just supplies I had scattered on my desk.  Although I did get the sparkly white paper out for the clouds!  But it was actually just hanging around as a scrap too.

I am sure that I will be using this stamp set many more times.

Thanks for coming by,

Sealed With Love and Valentine Four-Fold Card

I had a blast making this card today.  I am loving this stamp set, Stampin' Up Sealed with Love and the coordinating Love Notes Framelits.  I also used the Designer Paper that goes with the set.

I got the directions for making this card from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts here:

I made a couple of cards like this at Christmas and loved the way they turned out.  So I'm still going with them!  They are pretty easy once you do one.

I also made this card with the same stamp set and framelits.
