Card Basics

Card Basics ~~ One 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of card stock will make a base for 2 cards. Cut it at 4 1/4 portrait and score at 5 1/2. Or for landscape cut at 5 1/2 and score at 4 1/4.

Here is a list of some of my favorite tools: BIG SHOT die cutting machine ~ Grid paper ~~ Stampin' UP! Stampin Trimmer (cutting and scoring) ~Bone Folder - this little tool is a MUST! ~Multipurpose Liquid Glue ~ Glue Dots ~ Stampin' Dimensionals, Score tape, Stickles. BLING, BLING AND MORE BLING.... If it sparkles, I love it!

Here's what I've been doing...

Hi everyone, just wanted to share a couple of cards with you that I've been working on. Of course using Stampin' Up! products!   Don't forget to check out my Stampin' Up! web site for discontinued items and the clearance section.   Our catalog is changing on the 30th of May so don't forget to check back on some AMAZING NEW products and colors!  

Check this card out... I thought of a graduation card when I was making it.  The card base is black, but I used several coordinating solid colors of card stock,  Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo,  Island Indigo, and Old Olive.  Also, designer series paper (DSP)  from the NEW Catalog 2013-2014!   It's called Gingham Garden. (available soon!)

It's got a pocket inside for holding a gift card or money. I think it was hard to see, so in the photo, I placed the watermark just above the little area to retrieve the goodies!

What do you think? 
Here are a couple more....they don't have a pocket I just thought they were fun!
The card base on this is Mambo Melon and Daffodil Delight  card stock, the designer series paper (DSP) is from the NEW Catalog 2013-2014!   It's called Gingham Garden.   Isn't it pretty?  Lucky Limeade ribbon actually works with this!  Can't wait for the new catty!! 
Base of the card is black, used some Daffodil Delight and DSP from the Spring Sale Catty called Parker's Patterns along with black stash ribbon    :)

Hope you enjoy my cards...  thanks for taking a few minutes out of your day to stop by my blog!     Tona
