Today’s tutorial on Splitcoast is another oldie, but goodie: Gate Fold Card. I used a stamp from the stamp set Butterfly Beauty from Unity Stamp Company.

I promise to use Stampin’ Up! stamps again on my next card.

I have been a bit sidetracked since those Unity stamps are on my stamp table in a little wicker basket. They will go in big SU clear cases, as soon as I receive them. They are already ordered.

I am sorry to say that I forgot to write down which Copics I used.

The Wasabi panels were stamped with the Tea Time Pattern background in Chocolate Chip and the edges were sponged.

The main image was stamped in Brown Palette Ink on an  Shimmery White oval cut with Oval Nestablities and layered on a Chocolate Scalloped oval that was created the same way.

Now…how I got those Unity Stamps early.

Nope, I am not on their design team. I am not on any design team. With being a single mother until the end of the year, working for SCS and the upkeep of this blog, I just can’t commit to something like that. Besides, I am first and formost still a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator who LOVES Stampin’ Up! products (I just don’t like the long summer lull of no new stamps!!!).

Splitcoast is introducing a new feature with today’s newsletter: Product Review.
Once a month a team of six stampers will review a product and tell you what they think about it. Our first product to review: Unity Stamp Companies great new Mounting system.

That’s how I got handles and some stamps before they are available! To check out the whole review team and what we thought about the product, click on product review.

    Working on a card for your Inspiration Challenge, just can’t quite get part of it to work. Hope to do that tonight and post to SCS.

  19. what a pretty, pretty card! i love the coloring w/ the copics. between you and Cambria i decided that i “needed” a set! i love how they blend and layer, but i have to say i am having trouble w/ the black ink that i stamp with smearing with my copics! i’ve tried brillance black graphite(heat gun to dry), whisper dye ink and even stazon! i used both whisper white and some special marker paper that i just got from michael’s. any help/tips are, of course, greatly appreciated! keep up the beautiful work! you’re an inspiration!
