Use Your Stash Colors of Fall Paper DeStash Hop

This month we are using up those Fall papers that have been hanging around for some time. Welcome to the Use Your Stash Blog Hop, if you have hopped from Marie's blog you are on the right track. Our hop leader, Priscilla, has a full list of bloggers.

My project is part of surprise for my monthly cropping buddies and a great way for me to use up some of last year's Fall paper collection and retired colors, Olive and Barn Red.

I added a little new with Fall colors from our ShinHan markers.

Please enjoy your time as you see what everyone has created just for you. Hop on over to Anna's blog now BUT wait, I would love for you to comment on my project.

Calypso and the Split Panel Card

One of my Rockin' heART team members, Darlene Smyly, taught us how to create a Split Panel card at a recent class. It was so much fun!!

Here is a 4 1/4" x 11" top folding White Daisy card. Fold the card from the top in half at 5 1/2", you can score first before you fold.

Place the fold line on the 2" mark on your trimmer and cut. This will leave you with the 2" x 4 1/4" panel for the top of the split panel.

Take the leftover piece, 3 1/2" x 4 1/4", and cut 2" from the 3 1/2" side.  This will leave you with a 2" x 4 1/4" for the  bottom panel.

The remaining 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" piece may be used for the sentiment piece which will attach the top and bottom panels, which is what I did. I stamped one of the flamingos from the Tickled Pink (C1651) stamp set

I cut a Black cardstock mat for it at 4 1/2" x 1 3/4".

A friend shared her version of a rocker card and I fell in love. A rocker card starts with circles. The base 5 1/2" circle cut from New England Ivy cardstock. A second 5" circle is cut from pattern paper, here I am using the New England Ivy pattern paper. 

The next pieces are the circles creating a place for the sentiment and embellishments. Here I changed it up a little. The original circles would be 3 3/4" cut from White Daisy covered by a 3 1/2" circle cut from the Beary Christmas poinsettia pattern paper. 
My version…
