Lazy Days Card for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Highlights Winners Hop

Hello and welcome to Kylie Bertucci's International Winners Blog Hop! Today I'm joining Kylie Bertucci and a group of very talented demonstrators for a blog hop around the world. I'm so excited to be participating in the Top Ten International Highlights Winners Blog Hop! I earned this honor with my card, Cheerful Daisies you can see here. Thank you so much for voting for my card.

The card I'm sharing today features the Lazy Days Stamp Set and Dies. I'll go over some of the highlights, but I have provided links to a free tutorial with all the instructions and a video on my YouTube Channel.

I started with a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" piece of Thick Basic White cardstock. I then cut another piece of Basic White with the largest Deckle Die. On this piece I blended some Pool Party ink in the sky area. The Victorian Trim and porch rail were then added. That then showed me where to stamp the porch floor in Early Espresso.

A basket of foliage was added (Copper blend for the basket and Light Mossy Meadow for the foliage, then a rocking chair (Light Crumb Cake or the Dark one). All the porch elements were stamped in Early Espresso.

And, of course a hanging plant colored with Light Cherry Cobbler and Light Mossy Meadow Blends was hung on the porch.

Countryside Inn Double Z-Fold Triple Strips Card for the Share it Sunday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to my blog! Today I'm hopping with the talented Crafty Collaborations group of demonstrators. Our theme is to share any project we would like. My project is a double z-fold with triple strips card made with the gorgeous Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper. Now, you are probably wondering what the heck kinda card is that!!! First, let me show you some pictures, then I'll have a link for an instructional video and a free tutorial download.

This is a front view and you can see the 3 Boho Blue strips covered with the beautiful Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper.

This view shows you the double z-fold: the Thick Basic White is a z-fold and the Boho Blue strips are z-folds.

Some  side views

This view shows the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder. I applied Boho Blue ink to the folder before I ran a piece of Basic White through it. The wreath is from the Natural Prints dies.

On the back I adhered a Basic White piece bordered by a Boho Blue piece cut with the Countryside Corner Dies.
