Flip Card

This flip card is a quick and easy card.
you need a 5 1/2 X 4 1/4  piece of cardstock for your base. I used French Vanilla
A 2 1/2 X 8 1/2 piece of the base cardstock scored and folded at 4 1/4. Mount the strip to the base.
Cover this with a 5 1/4 X 4 in piece of contrasting card stock. This can be either solid or a print. I used the floral paper from the Lucy B & T duos.
Layer a 3 1/2 " square (I used the back of the floral paper. A 3 1/4" square (floral) and a 3" square of the base color.
I used the Quick Card Stamp- Butterfly and the Desert Sand Stamp pad.

Easter card

I made this Easter Card using French Vanilla Cardstock, Footloose B&T Duos, and Florentine Duos.
Cocoa Ink Pad and He is Risen Stamp set and the AP Cart.

It is a side easel card. It is made by taking a 12X6 piece of paper fold it in half and then fold on the diaganol from one corner to the center score. Fold on the diaganol and you will have your base. Take a 6&6 piece of Cardstock and opening the card glue to the inside triangle side. You can leave this as a square or cut it off like I did, on the bottom flat piece cover it with pattern paper and either put another piece of contrasting paper to make a ledge that will keep your card open. I cut the scalloped circle from the French vanilla and the Footloose. I stamped the Cross in olive green ink and the rest in Cocoa.

I have been working on some things

to show as examples at gatherings. I made this cute little bunny pillow box using the AP cart and blush paper from CTMH.

My business cards

Happy Birthday Banner

My boss wanted a birthday banner for her daughter and this is what I came up with. Sorry the pictures are of my desktop I didn't want to hang it up since it isn't for me.

Bazill Basics
A- 5 sheets of Lip Gloss
B- 4 sheet of Hollywood
C- Recollections Multi Circle/Flowers
D- 3 sheets of Diamond
E- 3 sheets of Petty Cash
F-2 sheets of 8 1/2 X 11 Pink dotted

I used the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge.
I cut 5 of page 29 at 6"(Color A) 5.5"(Color B) 5"(Color C)
4 of page 39 same color sequence
5 of page 49 same color sequence
4 of page 59 same color sequence
I layered each one
and put a hole 3/4 in down on either side at the top
The Cartridge has a flap that you can use at the top, it wasn't my preference so I made my own using a 1 1/2 inch strip of Color D, I used a scalloped punch I have from MS that I unfortunately can't remember what it is called.
I laced the banners together with ribbon I left 15" at either end and 3" between each letter.
The Rosettes were made with a strip of Color E cut at 1 1/2 inches and scored at 1/4" then valley folded.
The letters are cut using the AP font and Color F cut at 2 1/4"
I offset the rosettes on each banner and placed the letters to cover the center.
If you have any questions or would like any help with CTMH please let me know.
