Z Fold Birthday Cards

 I needed more birthday cards for the month of June so I created a couple Z fold cards.
 This entails taking a standard A2 format and adding one more fold midway to the cover.
I then added floral paper I had in my stash for years as layers.
Lastly I used Stampin Up punches and stamps and placed the sentiment half way on the z fold. Quick cards!

Domino necklace


I made and donated this necklace for a fundraiser.
Taking a Domino I Mod Podge a print from a catalog.
Edged it with a silver sharpie and added a layer of paper glaze to seal it all in.
Added black cording, 24" and a slider knot for the recipient to adjust the length.

Bliss card

Made this for my daughter, used all Stampin Up products.
The only items not SU were the teal elastic and the rhinestones
The elegant border punch is one of my favorites so I added it to the inside panel too.

Squares and Scores

A great masculine card, squares, score lines and yes, I added a little bling on the base card.
The squares are old music sheets cut at 1.5 inches, mounted on a 2"strip.

One card I spelled out DAD with a die set
The other card says HI!

Barn wood signs

With old pieces of barn wood from my house I looked at various sizes torn down and thought they would make great stencil signs to hang up, give as gifts and sell.

Here are 4 I made yesterday using the PLAID Folk art set called Family item 30740 from Michaels Craft Store.




Grid card set

I wanted to try this out as I saw a similar technique on Pinterest.
Base card 8 1/2 x 5 1/2
Layer 4 x 5 1/4
Then using 4 similar pattern flower paper I cut each at 3 1/2 x 4 3/4
Then cut into 4 pieces and alternated them to make 4 cards.
Sentiment and punch from SU.

Single layer cards

I had to make a couple quick cards and sent them last week, both for people with ailments.
I used the Stampin Up set Countryside and the sentiment from Trust God. I used colored pencils to color the images.
Using a sponge and ink, I created clouds with ripped paper.

Wire wrapping stone necklace

I took a class last fall on wire wrapping. I was hoping the class was more than was taught to us so I'll seek out YouTube for further studies.
In any event, here is the result.
By using specific silver wire made for wrapping I wrapped around the stone and made a loop at the top to be able to secure it to the chain.
I added a silver jump ring so the pendant can hang properly.
I cut a length of 20" chain, added a lobster claw for the closer.
This is being donated for a benefit.

Red Sox bottle cap keychain

Using a bottle cap from Mike's hard lemonade, I bent the crimp out and ran it through my Big Shot to flatten it out.
Used my Crop-a-Dial to punch a hole for the chain to be put on last.
I printed the logo on photo paper and sized it to 1". Punched it out and glued it to the cap.
Once dry I added a glaze.
