Fun, Unique Folds with the Sisters

Hello,

Welcome to another great week with the Sisters in Stamping. This week we are sharing with you some fun, unique folds cards. Check them out, you're going to love them. Everyone loves a hand stamped card but imagine their surprise when it's a little more interactive than just a simple fold in the middle card.

 

This first card is made by Jennifer Rawlings. The metallic paper makes this card just pop. Check out Jennifer's blog to see just what this fun fold is.


This "boo" card is made by Debbie Naylor. Imagine changing the greeting and using this card for so many other occasions. Hop on over to her blog for all the details. 


And finally we have a fun, unique fold from Rachel Yurkanin that looks way more difficult to make than it really is. Check out her blog for more details.

Sympathy Cards

We use cards in many ways - celebrations, illness, encouragement, and even loss.  
A sympathy card is not fun to send, but it is an opportunity to bless and encourage those who are mourning the loss of a loved one.  This week, the SIS designers offer several ideas for sympathy cards that can be used to support those in need.



Guest Designer, Cindy, created two cards for today's theme.  Both offer the same layout with slight variations - simple and lovely!  Stop by Cindy's blog here to learn more.



Debbie's designed a serene card featuring the Wild About Flowers stamp set with a sponging technique.  Hop over to her blog here to read about this project.



Jennifer used the ever faithful Lovely as a Tree stamp set with a watercolor style background.  See how this project came together by visiting Jennifer's blog here.



Karla's card uses the Rose Wonder stamp set on extra thick vanilla cardstock. She then used sponge daubers to apply color as desired.  Stop by Karla's blog here for more ideas. 



Rachel also used the Rose Wonder stamp set for her sympathy card.  This set makes stamping for all of life's major events a simple task.  Click here to visit Rachel's blog and learn more.


So glad you stopped by to see what we had to share with you today.  We hope these projects help you to share light during even the toughest times.  Have a lovely weekend, and stay safe!
