Get Well Card for Kelly's Social Stamping bloghop - Hope you're not feeling Boho Indigo blue

 Welcome back for Kelly's August blog hop where the theme this month is 

"Get Well". 

I don't tend to make too many of these style of cards but I guess the notion of "feeling better" doesn't have to mean sickness.To be honest I instantly feel better whenever I receive a handmade card! I do a little skip from the post box to the front door!

So I have been trying to send them more frequently, hoping I make others feel a little better too. This means that I like to use tried and true card designs that are easy to mass create. Another trick is to use lots of papers that coordinate without having to think about it too much. Stampin' Up! makes that easy, and the Boho Indigo set of papers are literally The Best Ever! I love these colours, and all the designs go together so I have made a stack of mix and match cards.

I love Lou's Bay Window card and this came together really quickly. I have posted some other versions back on Mother's Day here, and there is a link on that page to some of Lou's samples and the instructions from Alicia Yap.

These are so effective because they are easy to make, fold flat for posting and are very impressive when they are standing on your recipient's table.

Next up this week is Denise Beutler . Can't wait to see what she has created this time with Kelly's theme. Be sure and hop all the way around for some fabulous inspiration.

till next time,

I hope you have a creative week and remember, 
"don't just post online,
 post something pretty!"
cheers, Liz


  1. Liz, I so love your Bay Window fancy fold card. You are right, the Boho Indigo DSP is delightful.and works so well with this style of card. 💖

  2. I love the way you've used this amazing paper!!! What a perfect fold and perfect reason to send a card - I love the skip from the letter box image!!! Thankyou.

  3. That DSP is just wonderful and this style of fold is perfect for displaying it! I agree, all cards are lovely to receive! Kelly x

  4. Love this card style Liz. Great way to match up different papers from the same set. The foil really sets off the Boho Indigo DSP and you are so right - nothing like getting a card in the post to make your day brighter.

Merriest Moments #simplestamping Project 2 and 3 Easy cards

  This weekend I held my Christmas Card Class and catalogue launch showcasing the new Christmas Catalogue. It was a great day and we did 6 projects using the  Merriest Moments Stampset .  I created several projects designed to show that the set is brilliant on it's own.  Since not everyone owns a die cutting machine it is good to look at ways to utilise the stamps. There are lots of gorgeous samples around which focus on the Hybrid dies and embossing folder - and don't get me wrong they are an amazing product to use - but I have a few cards which just use the stamps, this is the second and third. This card uses the Holly Leaf - either medium or large- and random stamping across the card. The berries just tuck in perfectly and are easy to line up. In between the Holly I stamped the leaf frond with the rounded leaves using Sahara Sand, (anyone know what this is called?) and then filled in the spaces with the little "dottage" stamp using versamark and Heat Embossing with

Envelope Dies perfect for an Acetate Tent card and some new DSP

After creating yesterday's cards I was on a roll and created this one using the beautiful Gilded Autumn DSP and the Fancy Phrases stamp set.  I really love the sentiments in this set.  It is such a simple design and easy to create. You can find all the directions on yesterday's post for Just Add Ink (JAI#518)  I watercoloured the white leaf after I had adhered the gold veins just to soften it, and I added a strip of mint DSP to the front of one of the tent stands as the white was a bit stark. That's the cool thing about this design, you can change it up plenty of ways. I'm sure we can all send these type of cards at the moment. I hope you are safe and well, and staying connected, wherever you are. I hope you have a creative week and remember,  "don't just post online,  post something pretty!" cheers, Liz Product List Ornamental Envelopes Bundle [ 155168 ] $83.50 Envelopes  Dies [ 153531 ] $63.00 Shimmery White A4 Car

Triangle gift Box instructions for CTC#89 Christmas Packaging

Hello, I ran out of time to record the instructions for my project at CASEing the Catty#89 (busy week with markets etc)  so as promised here is the original inspiration and my version. I hope you give it a try. So I searched my Pinterest boards and finally found the link again here . It is a  picture tutorial in  German.  No matter which way I fold mine it doesn't look like Annika's - My flat faces are isosceles triangles, whereas hers appear to be right-angle triangles (I had to go back to basic maths to explain this to myself -you gotta love google!) At any rate, once folded and tied it looks quite pretty and I will use it as is.  so here are my instructions- very similar to Annika's: cut a piece of A4 Cardstock  in a 15 cm strip (use the full length of the A4) score parallel to the long edge at 4.5 cm rotate 90* and score at  7cm, 14cm, 21cm, 28 cm these vertical scores will be VALLEY folds make a mark at the top edge of the page at
