Try to Fold a Trifold Shutter Card

The card I am featuring today is a trifold shutter card. You can find a great tutorial here on how to cut and fold this card. It really is a simple design once you see how it is done.

Yeti, Set, Go

I featured a lot of different stamp sets on this card but, the two adorable Yeti creatures are from Yeti, Set, Go by Lawn Fawn. And the balloons are from Up and Away by Mama Elephant Stamps.

Yeti, Set, Go

This Yeti is wearing a crown from the Hats Off to You, stamp set from Lawn Fawn and his friends are wearing party hats from the same set. And the birthday cake is actually a sticker rather than a stamp. I wouldn’t go so far as to say that this is a mixed media project but, I do think that incorporating stickers now and then can give your cards a little something different.

I forgot to take a photo of the card when it is closed but, here is a look at the card when it is opened wide. Many people also add decorative paper to some of the panels. You know me and my less is more approach, so I just doodled some confetti and called it a day.

You really should give this card shape a try. It is just a matter of a couple of cuts and a couple of folds.

I am entering this card into the Lawnscaping Challenge: Critters Galore

Yeti, Set, Go Birthday!

Lawn Fawn is featuring a challenge called Dust Em Off. The challenge is to use a stamp set that you haven’t used in a long time. However, I have really just purchased my Lawn Fawn stamps in the last few months so I have been using them quite a lot. I am going to enter my card in anyway because, I love Lawn Fawn and I love the chance to win prizes! 🙂

Yeti with Balloons

The cute little monster flying away with the balloons is a Yeti. He is from the Lawn Fawn set Yeti, Set, Go  I paired him with some balloons from Mama Elephant’s Up and Away set. The clouds are made by just lining the outer edge of the balloon stamp with a blue stamp pen. And the birthday sentiment is from a Fiskars set called Birthday Cheer.

The challenge I am entering this card into is Dust Em Off by Lawnscaping Challenge

You have until February 26th to play along for a chance to win a Lawn Fawn set of your choice!

Monkey Love because, I Whaley Love You

 I have been gearing up for Valentine’s over the last week or so. In addition to my 11 youngest nieces and nephews (some of them are Grands) I am also sending a card to each one of my sister Barbara’s girls. Although they are 20 and 22 each one has lost a serious, long term boyfriend this year. And it is no fun to be alone at that age on Valentine’s day. And in addition to those cards I made 125 postcard type Valentine’s for the folks at the Council on Aging here in our hometown. You will get to see all of the cards I made over the next few days.

First up is a card I made for my Grand Nephew Craig.

This card features the monkey from Mama Elephant’s Up and Away set. The arrows are from a Heidi Swapp set that I picked up from Michael’s a week ago. And the candy hearts are from a very inexpensive foam stamp set that I have had for years and years.

Next up is the card I made for Craig’s baby brother, Dominic.

Dominic is only a little older than 1, so I kept his card a little more simple, one big image to center his attention on. The Whale is a diecut from K & Company and he is mounted on some patterned paper and then double matted to make it pop.

Thanks for stopping in to take a look at my creations. Check back tomorrow to see a few more Valentine’s cards that I made this past week.

Happy Stamping,
