Impossible Card in Magenta Madness

This Impossible Card is one of the projects from my recent Fancy Folds Class. It gets the name from appearing impossible for the pop-up section to come out of the cut out shape. Even though a magician shouldn’t reveal their tricks, I think I may have to put a video together on how to create

This any occasion project begins by masking a strip and stamping the splats from the Forever Fern Stamp Set. My

Letting the Ornate Garden Specialty DSP do the Work

Don’t you just love it when you don’t need to think when you make a card? This project is a sample from my Papercrafting: Pretty Paper Stash Buster Class. In this class I taught the attendees to use their Designer Series Paper, rather than hoarding/stroking it! When a paper is as pretty as this Ornate
