Team Swap Cards - June '17 Theme: Fun Folds

VID03156Hi Everyone! Last month our team got together to make shoe box swaps with the theme FUN FOLDS. Since it was just our local teammates swapping this month, we did it shoe box style. We each bring supplies for others to make our swap card.

 I have a video at the end of this post so you can see the cards in action! Here are the Doll's designs!

Above is Summer's Fan Fold Card. OMGoodness what a fun Fun Fold! The accordion sides pairs with panels is super cool!
And I love the balloons added to the Sheltering Tree image.

 

DSCN6354Below is Beth's Die Cut On the Fold Card! She showed us how to die cut a circle on the fold and make this constantly changing look! So clever.

Each time you fold out, you get a different look...A great way to show case your Designer Paper until you get to the inside layer.

  DSCN6360Linda's Double Dutch Gate Fold card, well, blew us away! It uses the new This Little Piggy stamp set. She had A LOT of the prep work done as there is a fair amount to assemble but well worth it!

The new Daisy Delight Bundle was so uber popular with us Demonstrators during our pre order the punch went out of stock! We cannot even order just yet but will again in a few short week. It rocks! and I'm sure will be on everyone's list once available.

 

When you slip off the band,  the front unfolds allowing for many areas to add images, pretty pictures and designer paper.

Here is a video that I hope show cases these awesome cards my friends created.

First Friday's Blog Hop - Retiring In-Colors & Custom Tee

Hi! It's the First Friday of the month and that means...

 

FFBH

DSCN6339
Hi Everyone! It's First Friday's again and time to Hop! This month's theme is the retiring 2015-2017 In Colors. It's always sad to say goodbye to retiring products, but it means we can make room for new trends and colors!

I focused on the retiring In- Colors of Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron, and Delightful Dijon for my color pallet. And the umber fun Custom Tee Bundle with the Tie Dyed Stamp Set. 

Here's an idea for Dad's birthday or Father's Day Card...for your Rad Dad. Gotta get the muscle shirt out for summer - since he's BBQing, fishing, mowing or by the pool!

DSCN6331 DSCN6332Layers:
Card Base - 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 Mint Macaron - After the card front is run thru the Big Shot with the Hexagons Dynamic Textured Folder - I trimmed to  a card base of 5-1/2 x 4-1/8. The embossing shortens a side by a smidge.
Delightful Dijon 4-1/8 x 3-1/8
Whisper White 4 x 3

General Instructions: Stamp Rad Dad down both sides of Whisper White layer - alternating ink colors. With Tie Dyed Stamp, stamp tie dye in 3 colors. Die cut out t-shirt. With Archival Basic Black, ink around the tee to give it definition. Layer elements.

  DSCN6333 DSCN6336
Vintage Birthday Card - something 25 years old is officially vintage! So not just for girls of a certain age :)

Layers:
Card Base 8-1/2 x 5-1/2 Mint Macaron
Delightful Dijon 5 x 4-1/4
Watermelon Wonder 4-1/4 x 3-1/4
Whisper White 4 x 3

General Instructions - Emboss Delightful Dijon layer with Decorative Dots Embossing Folder. With 3 colors - stamp tie images. Die cut using female T-Shirt die. Ink around the edges for definition. Stamp Vintage in 3 colors on the whisper white. Stamp and fuzzy cut (hand cut) the sentiment. Die cut banner. Layer all components.T

Tie Dyed Stamp Set is very addictive, just like tie dying...you want to keep playing with color combinations to see what you get!
