Peony 3D
Topic: 3D paperwork

Oh my, it's another 3D - FREE of course. When I print these on white cardstock and cut them out I end up with white edges. I carefully color those edges with matching watercolor marker.

On this one I put the gold trim directly on the image, right over the printed border. A text sticker finishes it.

Tulip 3D
Topic: 3D paperwork

This 3D cutting is a commercial one someone sent me in a swap a while back. It is another that looked complicated so I set it aside until now. It wasn't nearly as bad as I imagined it would be.

I used a scrap cut out from those recent thank you cards as a backing for this grouping and added gold trim and text.

The butterfly is also 3D and is part of the original sheet.

Delicate Dragonfly
Topic: Paper Embroidery

Oh look! The dragonfly is back. 

This time I used metallic green for the leaves and stems, bronze metallic for the cattails, purple metallic for the bug body, and irridescent metallic lavender for the wings.

I used a folded cardstock base and sheer ribbon bow to match the wings.

The text is a clear sticker.

Flower Vine Hello
Topic: Paper Embroidery

Oh, how I love free patterns! This flower vine looks like the petals are made of little hearts so, appropriate for February!

I trimmed and texted with silver peel-offs.

Too Much Gold
Topic: Paper Embroidery

Hard to stitch, hard to see, looks MUCH better at an angle or while moving it around. Obviously, you're not getting that effect here!

This is stitched in alternating gold and bronze threads on paste paper I made some time ago.

Trimmed up with borders and text in gold peel-offs.

Dragonfly - Just Because
Topic: Paper Embroidery

This pattern is one of the free ones I downloaded. I pricked it out on scrapbook paper with a mottled print and stitched entirely in brown. A couple of strips of gold peel-off and a gold greeting keep it looking clean and simple.

Sunflower 3D
Topic: 3D paperwork

A 3D cutting from a sheet I got on the internet. This cutting comes complete with the decorative background and I grabbed a cardstock scrap from my desk for the card base.

I trimmed around the illustration with gold peel-off border and added a peel-off greeting.

Best Wishes in Blue
Topic: Paper Embroidery

The paste paper used for background on this temari makes it difficult to individualize the threads in the stitching. Even so, I like the card.

I added a gold peel-off greeting and gold trim close around the front panel. 

The gold rose in the center is also a peel-off sticker.

Sympathy Marquee
Topic: Fantastic Folds

Are you excited that tomorrow you will get to see something different? LOL!

This is the last of the marquee cards and I have made this one into a sympathy card.

Birthday Marquee
Topic: Fantastic Folds

Oooooh, this is a beautiful paper! I have been saving it for years for just the right project. Tah Dah! 

I got all the 'thank you' cards done and had two constructions left, so I made a birthday card of this one.

Purple Floral Marquee
Topic: Fantastic Folds

I love how changing up the colors really makes the cards look different. I particularly like this combination.

Green Dot Marquee
Topic: Fantastic Folds

More than halfway there!

 You may recognize this green dot paper from projects past. I still love it and this is almost the last piece of it. This makes me sad... where will I ever find more of it?

Green Gear Marquee

Now THIS is different, don't you agree?

Same concept but, oh that paper! What can I say, the colors were right.

Lavender Dot Marquee
Topic: Fantastic Folds

These cards with the simple dot paper really look so cute, I think. It lets the focus remain on the mechanics of the card rather then so much of the decorative elements.

Floral-Front Marquee
Topic: Fantastic Folds

The construction of this card is exactly the same as yesterday's but it looks so different because of the selection of paper for the front. I also changed from silver to gold details.

Blue Dot Marquee Card
Topic: Fantastic Folds

One of the blogs I read regularly had a fantastic video tutorial back in August for a card with mechanics. It is called a marquee card. I have been meaning to get around to trying since I first saw it.

Since I was asked to provide some "thank you" cards for an upcoming event, I decided today was the day! I cut all the parts for 9 cards and put them together assembly line style. This is my way of getting around my aversion to doing the same thing over and over. I just do step one on all of them, then step 2 on all of them, and so on until I'm done. It is easier for me than doing one all the way through and then thinking to myself "One down, only 8 more to go". That is so depressing.

And, here is the result of card 1 (yes you are going to get them one-per-day until they are all shown.

The card, when closed, shows a scalloped window with a cutout circle behind it. I decorated the front with scrapbook paper, a peel-off greeting and some stick-on rhinestones.

As the front panels are opened, the pieces behind the cutout circle slide left and right to reveal a greeting in the back.

I also added a ribbon knotted around the inside panel.

Isn't this a clever structure? You can watch the video on construction here: http://stampspaperscissors.typepad.com/stamps_paper_scissors/2009/08/the-marvelous-magical-marqee-card-video-tutorial.html

One Tweet Card
Topic: Scrap Recovery

I started a new category in the topic headings: Scrap Recovery. This I will use for those projects I make by recycling old calendars, junk mail, magazines, paint chips, and other stuff.

Today, I am opening the category with these birds from last year's calendar. I used a Nestability die to cut them out and then found this pleasing arrangement quite by accident. I cut the brown cardstock corner brackets with a Cuttlebug die and colored in the inner elements with a gold marker.

I used actual thread through the itty bitty holes in the button brads and pushed them through holes in the felt flowers. These are mounted to the card with glue dots. I added sticky-back half pearls to the corner brackets.

 

Last step was to place a cardstock sticker inside for the text.

More Criss Cross
Topic: Fantastic Folds

Here are the other two cards I made from the criss cross stock I cut the other day. The same basic supplies were used, just bits and pieces changed.

Spiritual Wisdom
Topic: Paper Embroidery

After stitching this panel on a lovely cardstock I used marker to color in the hands and the fabric. I had the Lord's Prayer on clear sticker but it was a block. I cut into strips so I could arrange as a border. 

A marker and ruler formed the border and a clear sticker provides the focal text. The brown panel is mounted on a blue folded cardstock base.
