JDS - Dogwood Blooms

 It's a new month and two new digital stamp sets on sale at Jan's Digital Stamps
and a new challenge has begun.
My card:

 Dogwoods are so beautiful, we had a dogwood tree before we 
moved, they are hard to grow in Missouri. I stenciled my
background to match my dogwood flowers-colored with
Copics, 5 extra's layered for dimension and layered my
sentiment using stitched dies.
I used Jan's new release Dogwood Blooms and sentiment is
from Across the Miles set.

Creative Creases Guest Designer - Double Z-Fold Card

 I am honored to be guest designing for Debbie at Creative Creases Challenge,
where it is always Anything Goes with a Fun Fold - my favorite thing
to do.  Today I have a Double Z-Fold card for you.


I used the new Stampin Up set Nested Friends, and Stampin Up papers. 

Base Layer: Night of Navy card stock is 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scor at 2 1/8" and 4 1/4"
Middle Night of Navy card stock is 6 7/8" x 4", scor at 2 1/8" and 4 3/4"

The rest is easy, cut contrasting card stock 1/4" less than each panel, I
used Pear Pizzazz.  I used double sided patterned paper, for the 3 panels
shown and cut 1/4" less than card stock panel.  I used Rings of Love
paper pack. Color images as desired and add.

You can join the monthly challenge or be inspired at Creative Creases Challenge,
