Birthday Spinner Card

I forgot to post this one. I wasn't so sure about this stamp set when it came out. I borrowed it from a friend and played around some. What can I say, the set is growing on me. I have a couple of more cards I want to make with it before I give it back to my friend.

Thanks Allaina, you are the greatest for letting me use your stamps.

Christmas in July

I was at my local scrapbook store earlier this week and she had this adorable stamp by Stampendous and I just had to have it. I decided I would go ahead and make a card out of it. So I am now ahead on my Christmas cards.

Another Patriotic Card

This was last year's card, but I thought I would post it again. The stamp is by Impressions Obsession. I cut the flag out and popped it. And there is flower soft on the flowers. If you haven't played with flower soft, you really should. I am going to pull mine out and make a card using it.

Never Ending Card Tutorial

This is the card we will be making. If you want a supply list for stamps and copic markers please check the last post.

Cut 4 pieces of cardstock at 3" X 6". Make them all the same color. Score the pieces at 1 1/2" all around.

Lay two of the pieces down as shown and put double sided tape in the corners. Remove the red lined paper and tape the other two pieces down laying the pieces in the opposite direction. See the picture below before you tape the pieces down.

I know this doesn't show alot but I hope you can figure out what I am talking about.

This is the front of the card. The green cardstock is 1 1/4" X 2 3/4". The striped piece is 2 3/4" square.

Now to make the first fold. Fold the top piece back to the middle fold. Do the same with the bottom piece.

Decorate only the two middle pieces. (The pieces with the milk shakes and the "You're The Sweetest".

After decorating these pieces, fold the middle pieces out (to the right and left). Make the fold at the half score marks.

The top and bottom should have a 2 3/4" square. If you want to decorate this fold make sure the decoration will not show on the other folds.

Fold the top and bottom back at the half score mark.

This is the back of the card.

Never Ending Card Fold 4

I don't know why the scan didn't come out darker. I will have to look into that.

I have made a couple of these cards. Everyone just loves them.

I have never written a tutorial but I think I will try one with this card. I know you can find it else where on the internet but I want to try and this one should be a good one to start with.

The tutorial will be posted next. I need to get all of the pictures taken.

I am going to post the folds separately so I can include a supply list.
