Gatefold Cards, HeidiLea Creations, Pirates

Hello! I wanted to make a get well card for a friend but guys cards can be difficult. I love coloring so this was a fun card to make. We are busy making stamps and I have 40+ people in my class at Stampaway so we’ve been busy at night putting those class kits together.

We have a heat advisory today so no outside work!

Stamps Used: F22HL Heave Ho; LL20HL Jack & Lizzie; DD21HL Crackers Parrot; H20HL Palm Island; GG21HL Treasure Chest;

It might be hard to see but I did make this a gatefold card.

Gatefold Cards, Thanksgiving

Good Morning. I have to let you guys know that l was asked to beta test a new iso for my blog posts. I should never do that because I'm not technically suave enough. The 😊 that you see are emojis that didn't post correctly not me "swearing ". Then it switched photos when it posts to face book. groan! and of course I have no idea how to get out of the beta. so I apologize.

another fun gatefold card! all week you'll see them.

Christmas Cards, Gatefold Cards

Good Morning! ☀️ I have to confess that I love gatefold cards. I really like using the die Sarah and I designed for the tops. The cards open so seamless compared to cutting with two dies. I think it's because the new die is perfectly centered.

My biggest dilemma is I like patterned paper for the sides. I went to a local scrapbook store and bought $50 worth of patterned paper and wasn't really happy with any of it 😡

The other day I decided that as a stamper, ( right; we are stampers!!) I should just stamp my sides and I am so much happier with them. Just the right amount of pattern.

I learned something else while doing this card…glue can smear your ink. yep, don't look too close or you can see where my glue got away from me and smeared the ink 🙄

well, I'm off to make stamps 😜
