My World Card Making Day Creations October 3, 2020.

 I had so much fun making cards today. I used strips of paper and often Z-folds or other funky folds.

Inspiration

I attended this Youtube "class" (live video) and made along with and after Karen. She also has a PDF you can download from the description section.


My Makes

First, this is a Z-fold card. I used a couple of strips of a pretty patterned card stock and some fun animal thickers (puffy stickers).



This Z-fold card also used a strip of patterned cardstock. The cute little dashchund sticker inspired the sentiment I lettered.



Here's another Z-fold. I had this cute little Hello circle with the doggies, and I thought that made for the perfect sentiment that harmonizes with the patterned paper strips.



I can only call this a "Funky Fold card, because it's more than a z-fold. I used some paper scraps, and a couple of cute dog stickers made this one. I made this for a cancer patient. There's even a hydrant on an interior bit, but you can see it in this picture! I just love the bug-eyed doggy!



This blue card base has strips of patterned paper with a little space between, then an oval wiht the kitty. I lettered Hello. I could have used a stamp, but it's easy enough for me to letter my own!

The little kitty in the upper corner is a thicker. I have no idea what possessed me to but away the edge of the card and put it on the card interior, but isn't it cute??? 


Here is essentially the same card but with the corner folded back and 3 thikers instead of 1.



I put a wide strip of fun patterned paper on this pink card base, then I added a heart with the doggy and a thicker below.

"I miss you" just seemed like the perfect sentiment for me to letter.
 


Totally breaking theme, I had made the topper but sometime a few weeks ago but never got it glued to a base, so here 'tis. A cheerful get well greeting.



This was a card I made for a challenge.


I hope this gives you some useful ideas!

Slimline Cards Using Stamps of Life Rounded Slimline Card Die Set

  I am having a blast making slimline cards - the kind that fit in a "regular" business envelope. 

Card Base

The You Matter card uses a white base with a strip of lavender for the swirly top. The sentiment is black card stock from the remnant for the second card.

The Be Fearless card is a black base and a patterned paper for the topper (swirly layer). The sentiment is in black over a white shadow layer. I used the plain smaller panel to make a white writing space inside the card.

If I'd been thinking, I could have saved part of the swirl that comes out to decorate the inner writing layer.

Dies

I picked up the Stamps of Life Slimline Card Die Set, and here are my first cards with it.



The set includes the card die and inserts for a smaller layer, a checkered interior, and the swirl.

Sentiments

The sentiments come from the Fearless die set, which includes 5 sentiments with their corresponding shadow layer, from HSN.

Cutting Machine

You can use whatever you want, as long as it's a large cutting machine for this die, because the width of the base layer is 7 inches. I have a Gemini.

Tips

Be sure to put your dies at an angle as they go through your cutting machine. This is better for your unit and makes for a clean cut.


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you like these cards! I really love the die set. You can make the whole card structure with ease.

Cheers to your BLISSful Life!
