May 2 Stampfest at Lynette's

Lynette and I spent the day stamping at her house yesterday.
Here's a pic of all the cards we made.

Our inspiration for this was Katherine Schaefer's "Bee Yourself" card in the Winter 2016 Stamper's Sampler Take Ten magazine.
Stamp:  PSX Rose Topiary
Ink: Stampin' UP! night of navy
Spellbinders nestabilities labels 10 die
Martha Stewart edge punch
Book paper

Julie Davidson's Window Flip card was our inspiration here.
Stamps: SU serene silhouettes and unknown stamp
Tombow markers: red 847, brown N37
Lifestyle Crafts Zig Zag embossing folder
other embossing folder unknown.
Kraft base: 4-1/4 x 5-1/2"
White layer: 3-1/2 x 5-1/2"
the length of the Kraft and white were trimmed slightly during assembly.
Red: 11 x 3" score in half
2" circle cut out of red front as shown
1-3/4" black scallop circle
1-1/4" white circle

Our flower drapery card was inspired by Connie Babbert's Drapery Card.
Used double sided printed paper: 4 x 11-1/2"
Scored at: 3", 4", 6", 7", 9", 10"
A diagonal cut is made from the point at the 3" score line to 1-3/4" from the opposite edge.
The paper is folded at the score lines to create the drapery look. So easy and fun.
We could add a sentiment on the blank blue area...or not.

We were happy to find Jan Farring's Tea Cup Drapery Card 
and we substituted the tea cup from Lynette's SU set: Tea Shoppe .
Used double sided printed paper, 2-1/2 x 9" for drapery.
Scored at 1", 1-1/2", 2-1/2", 3", 4", 4-1/2",5-1/2", 6", 7", and 7-1/2"
Fold your paper so that it looks like the photo.
A diagonal cut is made from the corner at the 9" to 1" lower than the opposite corner.
I looked at the photo of Jan's card to lay out the folds like hers.
Then I could see where to draw the diagonal and which side would be 1" down from that corner.

This sympathy card is inspired by Leonie Schroder's card. 
Here is the pinterest pin for it: 
We embossed the just the top of our blue card. Sorry, I didn't write down the name of Lynette's embossing folder. Using SU's Serene Silhouettes, we inked the flowers in distress stormy sky and the stems and leaves in distress peeled paint (both of these markers look different than the corresponding ink pads, by the way). 
Stamped the sentiment in PSX sympathy stamp.

I really like the couple where you folded the paper to look like pleats. Very nice effect.
