I held my second Fancy Folds class on the weekend and it was terrific!! Technically, I held the class twice, because what I learned from the first round of Fancy Folds is that a small class size is key – so I split the group of eight attendees into two groups of four, and held the same class on both Saturday and Sunday. Safe to say I am now super familiar with all these fancy fold cards!!

The Pop Up Slider card is one I’ve been wanting to learn for a long time. The stitched rectangle framelits make it really easy to do, using the partial die-cutting technique to create the flap on the front of the card that slides up to reveal the stamped sentiment underneath.

Pop Up Stage Card

How gorgeous is the Pop Up Stage card? And yes, this magnificent creation folds flat to mail! This card comes together really quickly and is beautiful in person.

Shutter Card

This is the Shutter Card, definitely a challenging card to create. It took a bit of experimenting to make it look the way I wanted it to. However, the amazing effect is well worth it!

swing arm

And finally, the swing arm card. I first saw this card at a demonstrator meeting earlier this year. Again, it’s one that takes a bit of effort to create, but it’s worth it!

If you didn’t get a chance to attend the Fancy Folds class, don’t worry! You can purchase the written tutorials, complete with colour photos of each step, for $12. Or, you can purchase the tutorial package plus supplies – meaning, a pack of Designer Series Paper of your choosing, and co-ordinating cardstock, all cut, scored, and prepared for you – for $30. Just email me to make arrangements!

Welcome to the Seashore Stampers’ Father’s Day Blog Hop! I’m excited to participate in this group and I hope you’ll click through to enjoy the projects by my fellow hoppers 😀

Have you heard the news? Lovely as a Tree is retiring! This must be the longest-lived Stampin’ Up! stamp set ever, with ~20 years of history behind it. But all good things must come to an end, and with the end of the current annual catalogue we must say a fond farewell to this beautiful set.

I couldn’t say goodbye to it without featuring it at my workshop one last time, so this month I taught my attendees how to use the reflection technique to make a lovely masculine card.

Today, I’m going to show you how to use the reflection technique to make a similar card using Rooted in Nature, because that stamp set ISN’T retiring in ten days! In fact, both the stamp set and the co-ordinating dies are carrying over into the new catalogue …. but if you want that 10% bundle pricing, you’ve gotta order before June 3rd!

All you need to create a reflection is a piece of window sheet (I cut mine to card-front size of 4 x 5.25″) and your choice of ink. Best of all, the window sheet can be used and re-used; just spray some Stampin’ Mist and wipe with a cloth or paper towel to clean it.

Start by stamping your tree right-side-up on your cardstock. Then re-ink your stamp and stamp it onto your window sheet. It doesn’t matter where you stamp on the window sheet, but be careful: window sheet is more slippery than paper, and you don’t want your stamp to slide as you apply it. (If it does, just clean off your window sheet and try again.)

Once you’ve stamped the image on the window sheet, flip the window sheet over and place it as desired on the cardstock where you already stamped your right-side-up image. I like to leave a bit of space between the two images so I can use my green sponge dauber to add some ‘ground’ between them.

Press the window sheet down, taking care that it doesn’t slide across your cardstock, and use your fingers to press down all around the image to rub the image onto the cardstock. You’ll notice that the image will be a bit blurry and perhaps lighter in colour than your original; that’s totally okay, that’s what reflections look like!

Now use sponge daubers to add some colour: I used Old Olive for the ground, and Balmy Blue for the sky and water.

Have you made any projects with the reflection technique? Share them in the comments below! I love to see your creations!

Now don’t forget to click on the buttons below to enjoy the rest of the blog hop! Today’s theme is masculine cards, so you’re sure to find lots of inspiration for Father’s Day, male birthdays, and great cards for all the awesome guys in your life!

Happy Stampin’!
