Its Been Awhile!

I haven’t been here in a long time and it’s about time that I get back to blogging.
It has been really easy just posting on facebook, but I was reminded that not everyone is on FB (thanks Eden!), so I am going to get more diligent about posting on the blog…or try to anyways 🙂
Here is a sample of a new die cut card – the Triple Scallop Circle Z Fold Card.
We also have this available as a die, so you can cut your own cards.

Color Used:
Card Color – Wild Cherry
Layers – White, Hot Fudge & Nutmeg

Enjoy! and see you soon with another sample.ore

Hark the Herald Angels Sing!!

….is the theme of this card!
Yes, I know…haven’t reached Thanksgiving yet, but some may still need Christmas card ideas.


This isn’t a Christmas Card Kit, but our pre-cut Scallop Rectangle Swinging Z Fold Card works perfectly for this card and the work is done for you. The saying fits great on the Rectangle Layers – cut from our Scallop Rectangle Layering Die Set.

NEW Card Making Dies!!!

Yep…you read that right!
We have a NEW line of Card Making Dies!
AND…layering die sets to match the card shapes!
Pictured below is the thin metal die for one of our newest Swinging Z Fold Cards – Triple Fancy Tag.
The die is designed to die cut the “HALF” shape and score the card at the same time!
In this case, it is a triple, so there are 3 Fancy Tags perfectly spaced for an A-2 size card.
Also shown is a piece of cardstock that has been die cut and then folded along the score.
See our New Card Making Dies under the NEW PRODUCTS section of our website.
There are 10 different Card Making Dies, all with coordinating Layering sets.
Each package come with instructions for making a Swinging Z Fold Card.
BUT the beauty of these dies is that they have ALOT of flexibility to create cards and overlays with any dimensions. The directions are just a starting point for making our Swinging Z Fold Cards, you can adjust the dimensions if you want to see more of the inside of the card. You can make just a 2 Panel Foldover card, similar to our Bib Cards or make an overlay for your card that matches the shape perfectly. There are complete instructions on our website and I will be posting hints and techniques with the next few posts.

Here is a sample that I made using the above Triple Fancy Tag Die and Layering set:
(or use the pre-cut Basis Teal Triple Fancy Tag CARD)

Stamps & Dies Used:
Thick Chevron Cover A Card – Impression Obsession
Retro Masculine Die Set – Impression Obsession
Celebration Word Candle – Impression Obsession

Don’t be blinded by the BLING!!!

Yesterday was my triplet nieces birthdays.
And not just any birthday…
it was their GOLDEN Birthday!!
Happy Birthday 10th Birthday Tori, Kate and Erin!!!




I couldn’t do a Golden Birthday any other way…than bright and blingy!!!
On all 2 cards, I used Gold Mirricard and Antique Stardream Metallic Cardstock.

The card bases are our pre-cut Swinging Z Fold Cards:
Cream Triple FLAG Swinging Z Fold Card
Cream CUPCAKE Swinging Z Fold Card
Cream Triple SCALLOP SQUARE Swinging Z Fold Card

The Gold Mirricard embossing GREAT!!!! I love it!
Similar to when I embossed the Silver with snowflakes back in early November- it looks amazing!
And the Stardream Metallic emboss great too!

I didn’t do alot of stamping on these cards – mostly words.
All of the cards have embossing – I think they were Sizzix Embossing folders (or Cuttlebug)
and ALL of the dies used were from Impression Obseesion – I will list below, along with the stamps.

Stamps & Dies Used:
Cupcake – Impression Obsession Clear Set
Words on the Triple Scallop Squares – Endless Creations & Everyday Cards
Words on Triple Flag – Endless Creations & Everyday Cards

Impression Obsession Dies:
Flag Die Set
Mini Square Tag Die Set
Cupcake Die Set
Cake Die Set
