How to Create Texture with your Embossing Folders with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers,

WOOOOO HOOOO…two days in a row for me to post – I’m on a roll again!!  YEAHHHH….

Okay for today’s cards I’m working with texture.  If you use an embossing folder to create texture, you can lay it in different directions on your card to create a simple, fast and very elegant look.  What do you think?  I used the Boho Chic Embossing Folder for these cards.

How to Create a Double Flip Flop Card with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers,

CURRENT HOSTESS CODE:  JMDQAN2N

Happy July!  Phew, June is over.  Boy was that a blurrrrr.  An update on my mom, she is starting to come along.  Her accident was on May 29th.  We can see progress.  She’s got a long way to go but she is a fighter (now I know where I get it), nothing can keep her down!  Love her to pieces!  Thank you all for your kind words and cards that you’ve sent to her!  She is over the moon excited when she gets a handstamped card.  THANKYOU!!!!  Many of you asked if I would give you her address…here is it…Pat Culora, 7 Hawkeye Drive, Mohican Hill Apts, Apt D, Ballston Spa, NY  12020.  Stampers are the best!!!!  :0)

Here is today’s card, I call it the double flip flop card.

So what do you think?  Pretty cool huh?  I love this style of card.  If you are looking at this from your email, click on the picture below to see the video.  I’m not sure why but the videos don’t show up in the email????

Here are a few more samples with different stamp sets….

wilderness-awaits-flip-flop-card-deer-fathers-day-masculine-stampinup-stampin-up-deb-valder-stampladee

I love this stamp set (this saying is so appropriate)

just love it!

Card Dimensions:

Card Base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″.

For the “fold-over” put a tic mark at the top at 1/2″ and on the side at 3 3/4″.  Now connect these tic marks with your Stampin’ Trimmer (use the scoring blade) so you don’t cut off the fold.

Inside layers are 4″x 5 1/4″ and 3 3/4″ x 5″

Outside layers are 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and 3 1/4″ and 3 1/4″

Tah Dah!!!!  Let me know if you have any questions.  Please stop back often and leave me a comment.  I love hearing from you all!  It makes my day!

Birthday Blossoms meets the Brick Wall with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers,

It’s been a while since I blogged or released a video.  My mom took a horrific fall and I’ve been with her ever since.  I want to thank all of you that have contacted me with your well-wishes and concerns, that has meant so much to me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  For those of you that have sent her hand-stamped cards, she was over the moon excited (she’s a stamper also).  She broke her pelvis in three spots so it’s hard for her to get around.  She’s got her work cut out for her, but she’s a trooper.  As my way of thanking you, I’m offering a special for the next three days.

Hidy Ho Stampers,

Current Hostess Code:  FQ4AZJ4E

Well we are home!  Man Oh Man was that a long flight.  I couldn’t keep track of all the time changes -it’s a SIX hour time difference but it took us 12 hours to get home to Albany, New York!!!  Hawaii is a sad place to leave because it’s so beautiful but I am a homebody and I’m glad to be home.

stampin-up-incentive-trip-hawaii-2015

It was “so beautiful”!

Envelope PunchBoard Liners with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers,

Current Hostess Code:  FQ4AZJ4E

Well it’s day two of our Stampin’ Up! incentive trip.  Here is the view we woke up to (of course when I woke up it was pitch black as it was only 3:00 am which is 9:00 a.m. in New York – geeeeesh!)  So I got to watch the sun rise!  Gorgeous!

Here it is stampers!

If you’ve ordered from me in the last year

(and didn’t use the “no contact” button when ordering) ,

one will be on it’s way to your house soon!

SOOOOOOOOOO excited!

Anyway…today I’d like to show you how to do an envelope liner.  The other day I showed you a card that was 6 x 6 and made an envelope for it.

Mother's-Love-Pop-up-popup-book-card-stampinup-stampin-up-stampladee-deb-valder-3

I got so many questions on the envelope liner that I thought I would show you how I do mine.  Each size envelope is different so you need to measure from the point of the flap to the middle of where you are going to fold it.

envelope-liner-punch-board-punchboard-stampin-up-deb-valder-stampladee-1

This envelope is for a standard 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ card.

This one is for a 6″ x 6″ card.
