Coffee Cafe Gate Fold

Hello Everyone!
Today I have a gate fold card:
I've used the Coffee Cafe stamp set and the Coffee Cup Framelits.
All supplies and dimensions are listed at the bottom of this post.
I've used one of the cute little Corrugated Elements to hold the card closed until the recipient untucks it to open it.
Here is the inside!

August Paper Pumpkin and Alternative Cards

Hello Everyone!  This month's Paper Pumpkin, Giftable Greetings, has got to be one of my favorites!  It's so cute all on it's own, I had a hard time coming up with alternate projects!

I did come up with a couple of ideas.  Just by rearranging, we've got a sweet sympathy card. The only thing extra I used was a Pool Party marker to color on the flower petals.

Next... just adding a little bit more, we have a cute little Thanks card.
All that has been added is 1/2 sheet Night of Navy cardstock, sponging with Pool Party and Calypso Coral ink, a couple of pearls and of course (blingy me) Wink of Stella!  That's it!  The rest came from the kit.

Here's how to do it:
1.Cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock 5 1/2" X 11
2.Take one of the Calypso Coral Card bases and cut it in half ( 5 1/2" X 11")
3.On the Calypso Coral side, cut it at 1/8" on all four sides (so the stripes look even)
4.Sponge edges
5.Add a piece of that gorgeous ribbon from the kit.
6.Assemble and let Stella do her thing.
Easy Peasy!
Don't forget the inside!
