Fancy Fold Flip Card

Technique time!  I also did another video.  This card is so easy, but looks complicated.  The most trouble we had in club was using the fast fuse!  The supplies are listed below the video.  If you are interested in joining one of my technique clubs or would like to be a part of a virtual technique club simply email me.

More Experimenting ...

I've had lots of time to create and play lately ... I guess it pays to be organized and ahead of the game once in a while!  This card is a result of more "experimenting" with spritzing with water and refills onto an embossing folders.  Overall I like the look, but I'm not quite sure of the colors for the butterfly, though.  On this one, I even dyed and stamped the ribbon.

Awesome Friend

I was playing around for upcoming technique classes, and this is what I came up with.  I spritzed the hexagon embossing folder with 3 different colors of spritzers filled with refills and water, then placed the watercolor paper on the embossing folder, and ran it through the Big Shot ... this is the result.  I also dyed the ribbon by spritzing white satin ribbon with Wisteria Wonder/Water.  I really love the Awesomely Artistic stamp set.  It's hard to tell, but the wings of the dragonfly are glittered, making it pretty lifelike.  One of those cards much prettier in real life.  Below is the list of supplies:
