Tri fold card

Hello again ladies....Well theres seems to be a bit of confusion concerning this card... First it is NOT a free file from ukscrappers!!!!! It is a file from a gal called scrappercarmen from the craftedge forum. HERE this is the link to the original post and to the 2 .svg files she had shared with everyone on that forum. I just didn't use the front flap from this file. Never implied this was my design, just my take on the card and embellishing it. Some times reading between the lines means ones looking to make trouble.
. There is also a tutorial on splitcoast stampers forum on how to make this card with an x-acto knife, a cutting mat and your scor-pal and a ruler.
I "said, "here is my take on this card" not here is my design. The offer still stands if anyone wants me to cut this card on the SIlhouette for them, I would be happy to do so for free. Just like always.
One has to be a bit more caerful when promoting an awesome design, as there seems to be a lot of folk out there quick to point a finger and make a mountain out of a mole hill. Look for trouble where there is none, and cause trouble because they either thrive on it, or are not happy unless they are making some elses life miserable. Life is too short to be so petty..
So I apologize for any confusion this may have caused any of you.

Inky Impressions Design Team Challenge

Hello crafty ones, there is an amazing challenge going on over at inkyimpressions. Not only is the challenge awesome but one of the winners will be choosen for their Design Team.. I created this Christmas Ornament for the challenge....
Supplies needed....
ornament shaped chipboard pieces...
papers, patterned and plain.
glue sticks
embellies of all kinds.

I started with a shaped ornament from chipboard, and covered the backs and fronts in matching papers with a glue stick. Then stamped the front cover in black ink and then took my gold gel pen and only hi-lighted certain parts of the stamped image. Used spell binders for all the matting on the front cover.
For the next 2 pages again spellbinders for the mats and random flourishes cut from my Silhouette, inked edges and again gold hi-lights as hi points.......
On these 2 pages I stamped just the outline of a Holly leaf(unknown stamp) and cut it from green card stock, and again with gel pens in golds, silvers, and bronzes did some doodling and high lighting. and used the Hollies a side spray and pop dotted it. facing page just inking and chalking along with gold bow and ribbon.

On these 2 sets of pages, basically the same things only this timeI used die cuts from Sizzix and pop-dotted them as well. Also diamond glaze on select flourished on the background papers. and white gel pens.....This project was great fun to do and I think they are adorable for stocking stuffers.

Chipboard is such a fun material to work with. My little secret is when using thinner chipboard I liie to use a glue stick to adhere back ground papers, cause when it dries, it gives the chipboard a more thicker and stable feel. It becomes less flimsy to use..
When finished decorating, add toms of ribbons and hang charms from the ribbons, don't forget you can easily attach charms to the photo frames using ribbons and safety pins, or string directly onto ribbon. You may also cover in solid papers and using stamps create your own back ground papers and color them to your liking. There are no rules and the sky's the limit. SO ladies have fun with this. Have a great day, talk to ya all on wednesday, Hugs, Ronnie

Hand-made Prima look alike's

Hey ladies, here are a few ideas for all of you.. I never seem to be able to finf just the right flowers for my projects. So here is a way for you to make any style of flower, and color to match any project you are working on..
WHat you will need............
1.)flower punches of all shapes and sizes, or your cricut or cuttlebug,Spellbinders or desktop cutter, what ever you have available to you...
2.) white card stock/ or black with wite ink pads
3.)Ink pads in whatever colors you like, and black
4.)your favorite stamp sets
5.)baby wipes
(6..) embossing folders
(7..)embossing powders, versa mark pad and either embossing powders, or pearl ex powders

What I do is stamp random images all over my card stock, when you are happy with the way it looks, grab your ink pads, and baby wipes, put ink on the wipes and color your stamped white card stock, in any pattern you like, use 1 color or many colors, it is up to you. When you are happy with your card stock, either hand punch your assorted flower shapes, or run them through your die-cut machines. Once you have a variety of colored flowers,  you then are ready to start embellishing them. Can emboss them with embossing folders to give them dimension, or stamp them with versa mark and emboss them with embossing powders, or with the pearl ex powders. Once you are satisfied with this, you can now begin stacking them, distressing them, do additional inking and chalking, add leaves and vines.Use brads or bling in the centers. Make them any way you wish to. And no matter what you will have flowers to match any project you are doing. The sky's the limit, and there are no rules. SO have fun with it all.

Make your own Christmas stars

These are sooooo super easy I can't believe I never saw them done before! I ran across the instructions in PaperCrafts Holiday Cards & More issue, designer: Gina Hanson.
Start with a 6" square of paper (all the better if printed on both sides), score and accordion fold at 1" intervals. Staple in the center.

Trim each end to a point. (The triangles trimmed off are what I used for my Christmas Tree cards )

Fan out the folds and adhere the sides with strong adhesive.
