It's All About Stamping

Fun with Folds


This week the challenge at Our Creative Corner is to make a card with a fold or incorporate something folded on your card or project.  I chose to make (for the first time!) the Folded Paper Frame and used the tutorial on Splitcoast here.

I should’ve taken a close-up of the “bag”.  If you click on the photo, you should get a closer/larger view of the card.   The heart and bag are paper-pieced.  The tissue paper is pieced with vellum and the whole bag is popped up with the heart popped up on the bag also.  Make sense?

Here’s What I Used:
Stamps: Birthday Bakery
Paper: Tempting Turquoise DSP, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Vellum (used as tissue paper on bag), Melon Mambo, DSP (retired)
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: Mat Pack/Paper Piercer, White Satin ribbon, White brads, Dimensionals,

Play along today and have fun with this challenge! I appreciate you stopping by and for all of you who keep encouraging me! Be sure and check out the rest of the OCC design team creations!

  1. I LOVE, LOVE this card!!! Do I even dare attempt it—-no way! That’s why you’re the pro!


  2. Wendy this card is so cute! I love pink and turquoise together and this is the PERFECT stamp for this card! Such a girlie girl card! Love it!


  3. I love it, Wendy! Your paper piecing is awesome – I especially love using vellum for the tissue! That’s a great idea. The frame is very cool – I thought about trying the same technique for my card, but I’m glad I didn’t because I’m sure yours would be cuter! 🙂


  4. Bravo on achieving such great results with those folds! I just know if I tried it, my folds and cuts would NEVER line up! Your colors and image work together to create such a cute card!


  5. Wendy .. this is stinking cute! Love the color combo and just everything about it. May I have it?? 😉 TFS Have a great day remembering those from 9/11.


  6. Super cute Wendy! Love the detail on the bag and the fold. I just got this stamp set and can’t wait to play with it.
