Fresh Fruit Peach Gate Fold Card

The second card in my Stamp of the Month Club card kit this month was inspired by a card my friend Mary Ellen Stites designed for our Vacation Stamping School team training event last month. I love the fun gate fold that Mary Ellen used on her card. I changed up the card base color to have more variety among the cards in this month's kit and incorporated the doilies and burlap that I used on the other card designs.

Card-Making Tips:
  • To create this gate-fold card, start with a piece of cardstock that is 4-1/4" x 11" and score at 2-3/4" and 8-1/4". The inside piece is 3-3/4" x 5".
  • Stamp the border at the bottom of the card using the single "dot" from the Fresh Fruit stamp set.
  • Ink the peach stamp with Peekaboo Peach ink. BEFORE stamping, use a sponge dauber to add Watermelon Wonder ink along the bottom and up the middle of the stamp. If desired, spritz the stamp lightly with water before stamping for a more watercolor look. (Watercolor Paper is best for this technique.) 
  • For extra sparkle, apply Clear Wink of Stella to the stamped peach and the peaches on the designer paper.
  • Make sure to only use adhesive on the top half of the front layer so you don't glue the card closed!

Touches of Texture Gift Tags

On the Mediterranean Cruise Incentive Trip in May, we received the Touches of Texture stamp set and materials to make several projects, including a gift tag. I love the other tags they had displayed. This stamp set is perfect for making collages. I love the way they combined the stamp images.

Thoughtful Branches Thank You Tree Card

Thoughtful Branches Summer Thank You Card #thoughtfulbranches #stampinup
At stamp club last week, I let Karin choose a Thoughtful Branches card for us to make. She choose this one, designed by a Stampin' Up! Concept Artist. I love everything about it -- the colors, the copper washi tape, the polka dot border (the flower stamped repeatedly around the card front), and the baker's twine to tie it all together!
