creating triangle tri fold using Stampin' Up!

This is one of the current make and takes that I am doing at workshops. Everyone seems to love it! I know that I do. It is using the beautiful tea party designer series paper and the "A Flower For Al Seasons" stamp set. This stamp set is a relatively cheap set ($24.95) but very versatile! I think that the frog in the set is tooo cute! I have made this card basing it on black card stock, layering with a sheet of certainly celery and than overlaping with the "tea party" pink dots. I have wrapped around the main image with the green (looks too me like certainly celery) ribbon,that is free in a ribbon bundle this month for anyone who puts in an order over $100 (you get two colours of ribbon- see flier on blog)
If you would like to see how this card is made, you can hold a workshop, invite your friends over and make some stuff for free!! Please email me to find out how

Tri Shutter Card

For my workshops, I like to ask the hostess what she or he would like to see made. I have a workshop on the weekend, where my wonderful hostess, had asked to see the tri shutter card. I have seen these cards and gee they look nice. But, me being me, never had ventured to make one. So I decided I had better get cracking and make one. I made this a few weeks ago, was going to post it, but the lovely Bec had posted one on her blog the same night and I decided against posting mine in case people thought I was a copy cat lol. Bec's blog is under my paper angels links if you would like to have a look at her gorgeous card.
So, with Mum up here I felt the urge to create!! This is what I came up with! I used pink pirouette as the base card stock. I really like this years in colors! I than added black as a border colour to the raspberry tart designer series paper. I used white ink onto two of my black squares and the gorgeous "Great Friend" Stamp Set, that is available in the mini, for sale until the 30Th November. I really hope that they add this set to the next years September release of our new Stampin' Up! idea book and catalogue.
SO AFTER a bit of measuring and scoring and folding I came up with this card. I really like it, and am planning on using this design of card into my November Christmas card workshops! After adding a brad with a pink rhinestone i was happy.
I hope that my hostess on the weekend likes it! I hope that you do

Gate Fold Card

Here is my first attempt at the gate fold card. I love the idea of the card, but am not too happy with the colouring. I think a brighter colour would look much nicer. Am planning on doing it again using the washington apple DSP.
This card has been done using the perfect plum as a card base, and than I used the sprinkles stamp in perfect plum on pale plum cs. I brushed over the cs with the ink pad to give it that older look. I than used the "priceless" butterfly in the same way, and circle and scalloped punched it.
