My Card for Whiff of Joy. (And the DT Call)

Hey, Guys!

So, this is my card for Whiff of Joy. They have a awesome sketch this week!
I used some new paper from Hobby Lobby. I'd been waiting to use that black & white paper! We also haven't been using our Little Nurse stamp much, so I thought I'd use her this time! Turned out pretty cute!
I'm also trying out for the WOJ Design Team. Wish me luck! :-)

Here's another picture of it:

Well, that wraps it up

My DT Entry for Truly Scrumptious.

Hey, Guys!

So, I'm entering a DT call for this wonderful challenge blog called Truly Scrumptious. They have such wonderful challenges and such a talented design team, and they are looking for TWO new DT members.

So, anyways, here are my personal two favorite cards of mine that I'm entering:

The first one is a monochromatic card, and I entered it in the Fussy and Fancy DT call a few weeks ago. Sadly, I didn't make the team, but my mom did! Check out her blog here. The second one is a Stair Step card. I entered it in Charisma Cardz challenge, and I also made a tutorial of it here.

Well, that wraps it up! Thanks for looking,

My Card for Charisma Cardz and a Stair Step Card Tutorial!

Hey, Guys!
Okay. So here's a tutorial for a Stair Step card. I hope you like it.
I'm also entering this in the Charisma Cardz challenge, which is Metal. My metal object is the butterfly charm.

Well, here's the tutorial!

You will need:

A paper cutter
A scoring board
Two 12 x 12 sheets of patterned paper.
One 12 x 12 sheet of white cardstock.
A ruler (Optional. You could use the ruler on your paper cutter if you wanted.)
Some type of adhesive. (I used Mounting Squares, Dimensional Dots, and Glue Dots)
Embellishments of your choice. (I used ribbon, Stick on Pearls, a leaf punch, mulberry paper flowers, and a metal butterfly charm.)
Two stamps, stamped and colored.

Okay, now that the supplies are taken care of, let's get started!!!!!

First, take the white cardstock, and cut it down to 11 5/8 " x 8 1/4 " I forgot to take a picture of this step. DX

Next, score the cardstock on the scoring board at 1 ", 2" 4", 5 7/8", and 8 3/4". It should look like that. ---^

This step was probably the hardest for me. Fold it accordion style at the score marks. Up, down, up. down.

Now, take one of the sheets of patterned paper, and cut a strip 7/8" x 8 1/8"
This one will go on the bottom fold.

Cut the second strip 1 7/8" x 8 1/8"
This one will go second.

Cut the third strip 2 5/8" x 8 1/8"

Now for the last one. This one will go on top of the third one. Cut it 4 1/2" x 6"

Okay. Now for the mats on top. Cut this first one 6/8" x 8"

Cut the second one 1 6/8" x 8"

Now cut this one 2 5/8" x 8"

Now cut the last one 4 3/8" 5 7/8

Now mat them using the mounting squares.

Now that we have the measurements mapped out, you can use the embellishments. I used the ribbon on the bottom...

The metal butterfly on the second paper. I put a stick on pearl on the butterfly, too.

I put the stamp on the second paper, also. I popped it with the Dimensional dots.

Here's a close up.

Here's the second stamp which is going to go on the top paper.

The mulberry paper flowers are also going to go on the top paper. I also put the stick on jewels on the end of the leaves.

Like so! This step might have been a little confusing. This paper is going to go on top of the other top paper.

Now, tape the papers to the white cardstock. There's a flap in the back that will hold it up.

Here are some close-ups!

I hope you guys enjoyed this tutorial! I had a lot of fun making it.

My Card for Color Throwdown.

Hey, Guys!

Okay. This is my card for Color Throwdown!

I am getting it in a little late, but I think I'll still make it! Isn't the layout awesome?
Speaking of layouts, this one is called a Stair Step. I'll be putting up a tutorial on how to make one soon. I got it from a wonderful card a lady sent us, for a blog my mom is doing. I kind of took the measurements and tried to duplicate it. Some of the papers aren't cut quite straight. I always get so frustrated because it's hard for me to cut things straight, but other than that, I think I did an okay job!
The beautiful papers are from some blog candy I won in the Operation Write Home blog hop, and the stamp is Magnolia.

Well, that wraps it up,
