Challenge #4- Twisted Easel Challenge

Hi Club Friends!   And Welcome!!!
I hope everyone is ready for another challenge.  If you missed our last challenge, we did Triple Time Stamping.  I think it made for a really great looking card.  This week we're going to twist and stand - our challenge is to create a Twisted Easel Card. 

But first, here are the winner and picks for Challenge #3...

Now onto this week's video challenge...

Mary from CardzTV has made tons of wonderful instructional videos.  Here is one she made just this last September using a technique called Twisted Easel:

Wasn't that a fun video?  Now, it's your turn. Using this technique, we want to see your Twisted Easel Card. 
 Here are the twisted easel cards made by our great design team
 with great digital stamps from our challenge sponsor...

Tip:  Foam Tape under flower punch makes a good card stop.
Tip: Try to make an extra card to keep handy for the next b-day boy

Tip:  Use big foam dimensional squares to give your card stop some height.

Tip: Do not hesitate to add more embellishments for the inside. Here, I used my stencils 
for the leaves.

Tip: Don't be shy with the size of ribbon you use . . . sometimes the larger ribbons 
just need to be used!

Tip: this is the perfect size A2 for a regular envelope but have fun experimenting with different sizes.  A 5x5" card is another favorite of mine. 

Tip:  Keep it simple.

Tip: Know where your extra cutting blades are stored when you need one in a pinch!

Our club sponsor this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps. They are giving 7 digi stamps to the winner of this challenge!
Thank you Bugaboo Digi Stamps for your support and donation!

My Favorite Craft Tools and Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone, Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.

Fiskars AdvantEdge Punch System Review
