Easter Purple Posy Fancy Fold Card

Hello,

Today, I’m sharing another card that I made with the Fancy Fold technique that I shared with you the other day. This time I decided to do a soft colour one and went with the gorgeous colour of Purple Posy! 

When I was trying to figure out what pattern paper I wanted to use that went with my Purple Posy colour, I turned to my catalogue to see what my possibilities were. I decided to go with the Woven Threads Designer Series Paper and the 2019-2021 Incolour  6 by 6 Designer Series Paper pack. 

The other day I did share a video on how to create this card and you can watch the video here.  I have to think that my favourite one of out the two cards is the Purple Posy one as I just love the soft and subtle colours in it. I can’t wait to give these to my girls tomorrow for Easter. Easter will be different this year and one that we will remember for along time, actually this year will go down in the history books. But if we all do our part and social distance from each other..then we will get through this storm!!!

I first saw this fancy fold card idea on my friend Erica Cerwin Blog Pink Buckeroo blog as she had created a baby card with it. When I saw it, I knew it would be the perfect design to create a few Easter cards with. Thanks for the inspiration Erica!!

I sat down last week to create a few Easter cards with the Welcome Easter stamp set. This stamp set has the cutest animals images like Bunny, Chick and Lamb that you could use. I decided to use the bunny image today and will be sharing a few other projects with you all week.

I thought I would share a few of my favourite projects that I created with products from the Sale-A-Bration catalogues. Remember you can earn these for FREE when you place a qualifying order. 

Little Lady Bug Stamp Set

The Little Ladybug stamp set is adorable and the best part is that it has matching dies to go with it. So you can stamp the ladybug and cut them out with a die cutting machine. 

Rise and Shine Stamp Set

I think this was my favourite stamp set from the Sale-A-Bration products and one that I will hold on too. The Rise and Shine stamp set coordinated with the Cup of Cheers dies and sadly they are sold out at the moment. I’m hoping that SU will carry this over into the new Annual catalogue. 

Happy Birthday So Very Vellum Specialty Paper Card

One of my favourite accessories from the Sale-A-Bration is the the So Very Vellum Specialty Paper. This paper was so popular that is sold out. I’m really hoping that Stampin’ Up! will carrying some similar into the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalogue.

Tropical Oasis Happy Birthday Card and a Video

Hello,

Hope you are having a great start to your week? I’m going on my third week of being at home and let me tell I have been doing a lot of things behind the scenes in my business. I have been prepping and prepare for April classes, my social media plan for April and working on building video into my weekly schedule. 

This morning, I created this visual and sent out message on my Stamp with Anne Facebook group that I would be doing a Facebook Live video at 3pm and that we would be creating this card together. I want to share a project that we had made this month in our Love it Chop it class and also share with them the So Very Vellum Specially Designer Series Paper that they could earn for FREE during Sale-A-Bration. Now we only have till tomorrow night to earn our FREE Sale-A-Bration products as Sale-A-Bration 2020 ends tomorrow. 

The idea behind my Love it Chop it class is that you chop up your pattern paper so that you will use it on a variety of projects. When you chop up your paper you will use it more and it will be ready to adhere to project when you sit down to create! 

One of the other tricks I share with my customers at our Love it Chop it class is a variety of sketches and how you can use them to create different projects. This sketch was simply one that you can use for any occasion or theme. With each card that we make, I provide them with measurements for all the projects. I shared a sample in the video. If you create a project with these measurement, I would love to see it. 

Need to Order Supplies: You can either email me your order OR you can head to my ONLINE STORE.  Don’t forget to use the HOSTESS CODE: AQRMGC3N AND if you bump up your order to $50 you will qualify for hostess code special for the month of March.

Have a fabulous day!!!
